Ms Bradley and Mr Irwin's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has defended his clients - saying that police claims that a cadaver dog had smelt the scent of a deceased body in their bedroom proved nothing.

'There is absolutely not a stitch of evidence in this case that there was an accidental death caused by Deborah,' he told Fox News.
He disputed that police dogs had sensed the smell of a deceased body, saying it was 'decomposing remains', which could include faecal matter.
Mr Tacopina stated that claims made against Ms Bradley had caused her 'great pain' and said there was a 'witch-hunt' against her.

Meanwhile, another lawyer for Baby Lisa's parents has spoken out to question the thoroughness of the police search in the family home.

Cyndy Short said that despite hours of intensive combing there was not much disturbance, which she told Good Morning America she found 'frankly surprising'.
Her words come she was forced to hit back at reports of police cadaver dog smelling the scent of a dead body on a bedroom floor in the house.
Miss Short said the cadaver dog development could be misleading detectives because the scent could be decades old.
She told Good Morning America: 'My understanding is that there are cold cases where dogs have hit on scents of decomposition that have been in the home for as long as 28 years.
'This is an old home - 63 years old. There could be a lot of other explanations for that.'
Mr Garrett said the dogs have a great accuracy record, adding: 'In studies done of cadaver dogs where the dog has direct access to the scent and it's reasonably fresh - it's above 90 per cent.'
On Friday it emerged that a cadaver dog got a 'positive hit' during a search at the home in Kansas City, Missouri, where the 11-month-old vanished three weeks ago.
Officers said that they removed items including a multi-coloured comforter, purple shorts, a Disney shirt, a glow warm toy, a 'Cars'-themed blanket, rolls of tape and a tape dispenser.
Ms Bradley had previously told police that her daughter was wearing purple shorts and a purple T-shirt when she put her to bed.
In the search warrant, officers indicated that Ms Bradley and Mr Irwin had restricted police access to their home.

Lisa Irwin's parents are STILL not helping the Police

Post by Gillyspot on 26.10.11 7:49

snipped "Just the thought of putting his clients in a room with police officers makes defense lawyer John Picerno nervous.

“My own view is that my clients should never talk to police,” Picerno said Tuesday. “I tell them, ‘The prisons are full of people who talked to the police. The police are going to do what they are going to do, with or without your cooperation and your statement.’ ” Still, defense lawyers and former investigators said that ongoing negotiations between police and attorneys for the parents of a missing 11-month-old girl over the conditions for more interviews are a routine part of the system."

Snipped "Police have issued public appeals to Bradley and Irwin for separate “unrestricted” interviews to follow up on issues raised at their last formal interrogation on Oct. 8. “We want to know what they have to say on their own,” Young said".

Snipped "The parents also have refused to allow police to have specially trained social workers reinterview their older children from previous relationships, boys ages 6 and 8 who were at the home when Lisa disappeared."

snipped "Tip rate slows
The investigation into Lisa Irwin’s disappearance entered its fourth week Tuesday.
So far, investigators have received 976 tips and cleared 793 of them. The rate of tips coming in has started to slow, Kansas City police said. Many calls now are from psychics or people offering suggestions for how police should conduct their investigation.

http://www.kansascity.com/2011/10/25/3229412/legal-dance-with-police-is-part.html#ixzz1brr5u36f

And now the psychic's come out to play too. Have Phil McCann and Jon Corner been giving their recommendations?

Jolhn Picemo: “I tell them, ‘The prisons are full of people who talked to the
police.
The police are going to do what they are going to do, with or
without your cooperation and your statement.’

It just goes to show the guilty will inadvertently self incriminate under questioning, hence only the guilty will refuse to talk or co-operate with the police. Using John Picemo's logic applied to the police, then by the same token, it goes without saying that "no innocent will refuse to talk to the Police with or without their defense lawyer's advice". Any parent who wants their missing child found would be desperate to help the police, not other way round.

This is just another eerie echo of mccanns case.

An interesting report here with a tour of some of the family home - wonder where the idea for the T-shirts came from!

Still hardly any mainstream news on the other missing little girl - Aliayah Lunsford. She's been missing for over a month now. Yet there seems to be a virtual media blackout on her disappearence, and only community & online groups trying to raise her profile. Very weird.

Here's a couple of links to the latest news on Aliayah:

"At this point, officials with the FBI say there are few leads in the case."

"The FBI also said last week there was little hope that Aliayah was still alive."

This poor baby still hasn't been found sad I have followed this case closely from the beginning and have noticed a lot of similarity's with the McCann case with respect to the parents and familiy's behaviour and actions.

Noooo! that's surely got to be photoshopped? Do you have a link to the original source of the pic?

Lisa Irwin Case: Detective Corrects Quotes
December 08, 2011 06:10 AM EST

In the case of Lisa Irwin, it's been reported that a private investigator spoke with law enforcement about items the cadaver dogs hit to the scent of death. This article is meant to correct the numerous misquoted reports for Mr. Rugen of Rugen Team Investigations, LLC.

It was mistakenly reported by several online sources that Ron Rugen shared that he talked to law enforcement about Lisa Irwin. It was widely written that he was told about items that were removed from the home of Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin. However, this is not true. Although the private investigator does have credible information his quote is actually as follows:

"A source close to law enforcement tells me that cadaver dog in the Lisa Irwin missing baby case hit on a blanket, a toy, and her clothes last reported wearing. If true, that means the fluid that secretes from the body upon death were possibly on those items."


It's great that Ron Rugen chose to provide this quote exclusively for Gather to help clear things up. It's easy to misreport details when so many sources have mixed up the actual wording.

Lisa Irwin is still missing

The little girl is still missing, but there are a lot of clues in the case for detectives to sort through. It seems that the physical search for the missing infant has ended, and the investigation is under way. Hopefully investigators find out what happened to the little girl.

An update on the Aliayah Lunsford case. It seems her mother has been charged with her murder. Aliayah Lunsford went missing in 2011. 

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/aliayah-lunsford-missing-west-virginia-mother-charged/

The witnesses to the murder have come forward. Although I can't find it in print, what led me here was a comment from a man on Peter Hyatt's facebook page who claims the dead child's siblings turned whistleblower although the press articles about the case say only that witnesses to the murder have come forward. 

Makes you wonder.....

Mother of long-missing W.Va. girl Aliayah Lunsford charged

Aliayah Lunsford is pictured, left, next to an age-progressed image developed by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

Last Updated Nov 4, 2016 12:17 PM EDT

WESTON, W.Va. -- The mother of a 3-year-old girl who disappeared in 2011 was arrested Thursday in Florida and is being sent back to West Virginia to face charges, authorities said.

Aliayah Lunsford was 3 years old when she was reported missing on Sept. 24, 2011, from her West Virginia home. At the time, hundreds of people aided federal, state and local authorities in the search for the girl as FBI investigators went door to door and dive teams scoured a local river.

But according to the criminal complaint against Lena Lunsford, police believe Aliayah died in her home as the result of blunt force trauma inflicted by her mother in side their Lewis County, W.V., home Police allege that Lunsford struck the little girl in the head with “a solid hand held object” then did not allow anyone present to help Aliayah or call for help. The little girl allegedly died within hours.

The complaint alleges that Lena Lunsford, 34, then attempted to conceal the crime by making up a kidnapping story, “destroying evidence, concealing the victim’s body” and telling witnesses to keep quiet.

Sheriff Adam Gissy in West Virginia’s Lewis County told The Exponent Telegram that Lena Lunsford was in custody in Pinellas County, Florida. He added that she was awaiting extradition on a charge of death of a child by a parent by child abuse.

Gissy declined to tell the newspaper whether the girl’s body had been found.

Pinellas County jail records showed Lunsford was booked there Thursday on a fugitive warrant from West Virginia and subsequently released Thursday afternoon from jail to be returned to Lewis County. Lunsford had been living in an apartment in St. Petersburg.

It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney.

Lena Lunsford had reported she checked on her daughter in her bed early the morning of Sept. 24, 2011, and then found her gone when she looked in on her again later that morning. At the time, the woman was eight months pregnant and subsequently gave birth to twins.

Lunsford spent eight months in prison for welfare fraud after her daughter vanished, then had additional short stays on probation violations, records show. Her parental rights were terminated by the West Virginia courts, and her six other children were put in state custody.

In 2011 during the search for the missing girl, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children dispatched a retired investigator to advise local officers.
----------------------------------------------------------

"......alleges that Lena Lunsford, 34, then attempted to conceal the crime by "making up a kidnapping story, destroying evidence, concealing the victim’s body" and telling witnesses "to keep quiet."

Sound 'familiar'?
