Details reported by the Kansas City Star from a family source give a clearer picture of what happened in the Kansas City home before and after baby Lisa Irwin went missing from her crib.
Baby Lisa's mother drank five to 10 glasses of wine and smoked cigarettes with a neighbor before going to sleep drunk on the night Lisa vanished. Deborah Bradley, 25, whose 10-month-old daughter has been missing for almost a month, consumed a box of wine on the stoop of her home after Lisa's father Jeremy Irwin left for his night job, according to the Star.
Bradley has admitted that she had consumed enough wine to be intoxicated on the evening of Oct. 3, but strongly denied the suggestion that she had harmed her daughter.
The Starbucks job kept Irwin longer than he expected, but he did not use his work cell to call home. Bradley has said she was not alarmed by the delay.
Police have been able to verify that Irwin was at the Starbucks until about 3:30 a.m. and nothing unusual occurred.
Irwin returned home around 3:45 a.m. on Oct. 4 and immediately noticed that the front door was unlocked and the lights were on. Irwin says he woke up Bradley and asked her about the alarming signs in the home. Irwin said he realized he had not checked on Lisa and rushed to do so and found her crib empty.
