Lisa Irwin’s Brothers to be Interviewed
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FOX 4 News has learned the interviews with the half-brothers of missing baby Lisa Irwin are back on. A source close to the investigation told FOX News the boys will be re-interviewed “sometime this week.” The source would not be more specific.
The boys were originally scheduled to be interviewed on October 28, but those interviews were abruptly canceled by the family’s then-attorney Cyndy Short. She then left the case, citing differences with the New York attorney representing the family, Joe Tacopina. The family has since retained another local attorney, John Picerno. Picerno has not commented on the case.
Tuesday night, Kansas City, Missouri police would only say they are in discussions with the family over interviewing the half-brothers.
When the original interviews with the half-brothers were scheduled, police said they would be conducted by forensics experts in a setting conducive to child interviews. It’s not known where or exactly when the newest round of interviews will take place, or who will conduct them.
The now 11-month-old baby disappeared October 4 from her Northland home. Her parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin have maintained the child was kidnapped. They have not spoken publicly in weeks and continue to maintain a low profile.
