On the night Lisa went missing, the 10-month-old’s mother says she drank so much wine she might have blacked out!
In an interview with People, Deborah Bradley described the night Lisa Irwin went missing and revealed a shocking new detail: She can’t remember checking on her daughter before going to bed that night! When asked if she blacked out, she answered: “It’s a possibility.”
On the evening of Oct. 4, Deborah said she put Lisa to bed around 6:40 p.m. and then spent the rest of the night drinking wine she had purchased earlier and visiting with a friend. “I had several glasses of wine,” Deborah revealed, adding that she probably had more than five. Her friend left around 10:30 p.m. and saw the lights go off in the house.
According to Deborah, she doesn’t know if the lights were turned off by her or an intruder. Previous reports said Deborah last checked on Lisa at 10:30 p.m., but now the story has changed in light of new details.
But Deborah isn’t concerned that she was possibly drunk with a child at home. “She was sleeping,” she said. “I don’t have a problem with me having adult time.”
Lisa’s father Jeremy Irwin came home from work around 4 a.m. and discovered the baby was missing. According to The Today Show, this was his first overnight shift. Since then the family, police, a private detective and the Missouri National Guard have been unable to find her. There are no suspects, but Deborah has said that she expects to be arrested and admitted that she failed a polygraph test. During an interview on The Today Show, she revealed which question she failed. According to her, police said she failed when she was asked where Lisa was.
“I firmly do not believe that somebody took my baby to hurt her,” Deborah said to People. “They really wanted that baby. That’s the hope that keeps me going. She’s still alive somewhere.”
Deborah just wants her daughter to be found: “People are going to think what they think,” Deborah added. “Those people that are out there judging me, please, just look for her.”
