Missing Baby Lisa Irwin's Mom — Drunk The Night Lisa Disappeared!

Mon, October 17, 2011 8:38am EST by 10 Comments

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.”

I’m a parent.. I drink but my child never goes missing! Casey Anthony all over again. That case displayed to the media that you can kill your kid. Make up lies you were molested and get away with it. Why wouldn’t someone else try it? Its pathetic!

Well the whole Casey Anthony case has painted a picture to the public saying its okay to kill your child. All you have to get is 12 stupid people on a jury. She killed the kid. Casey anthony all over.

Natalie, clearly, there was nobody sober to watch the baby, and I think there is a possibility that she could have killed baby Lisa and threw her somewhere while drunk- but she just can’t remember possibly doing that. I agree with Dawn. DEBORAH IRWIN IS GUILTY! Of child neglect and possibly murder of Lisa Irwin.

If she is going to drink to get drunk, she should have someone sober in the house. If i decide to drink while my 5 month is home, i have my husband watch her. She needs to quit changing her story. She should have checked on the baby before going to sleep. Something happened to that baby while in her care. so she is guilty of at least child neglect.

Just because she’s a mom means she can’t drink with a friend? She thought she was safe in her own home, and decided to have some wine with a friend. I don’t see anything wrong with it. Maybe she shouldn’t have gotten SO drunk when no one else was home, but I really don’t think she’s guilty. She doesn’t even care how people are judging her, which most guilty people do. I hope they find baby Lisa alive and healthy.

She didn’t just have one drink – she had five! How can any responsible parent drink themselves into oblivion when there’s a very young child in the house? What if the baby had a medical emergency (babies can get very sick very fast), and mom was too drunk to even notice?

Yes becasue she is a mom it sure does mean she cannot drink
while there is no one else to care for her children. If nothing else she is guilty of neglect. Who was going to take care of the baby and her other kids if they woke up? Their mom was so drunk she had a blackout. No parent needs to drink while they have small children in their care. Plus why not let the police inerview the other kids? What is she hiding? Not to mention the fact that she failed a lie detector test when askd if she knew where the baby is.
