Parents (Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin) of Missing Baby Lisa Irwin Hire Attorney Joe Tacopina, Former Joran Van der Sloot Lawyer
The case of missing Lisa Irwin just went from one of focus on trying to find a missing 11 month old baby to one of trying to protect or hide what the parents of missing baby Lisa might know. As investigators try and find missing Lisa Irwin … enter Joe Tacopina to represent the Missouri family, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin. Of course this begs the question, why would the Irwin family need an attorney?
High profile attorney Joe Tacopina, yes the same Joe Tacopina that represented Joran Van der Sloot, the suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, has been hired by by the Irwin family. The question that comes to mind is, why? Why would Tacopina need to be hired? The family has to feel that the focus is on them and that investigators feel that the parents stories just don’t add up. Some body knows something more than they are saying.
Lisa Irwin has been missing in Kansas City, MO since October 4, 2011. She was reported missing when her father returned home at 4 AM to discover that baby Lisa was not in her bedroom. It was initially believed the infant was abducted from her crib.
What a coincidence that Tacopina would now be representing a client who has changed her story regarding the events that took place of her missing child and one who failed a lie detector test. A lying client, really, sounds like Joran all over again. Now we find out that Lisa Irwin’s mother was drunk at the time her baby went missing. Watch the VIDEO from FOX News with Megyn Kelly … Deborah Bradley admits she was drunk at the time of the disappearance. The mom claims she was drunk and passed out on the day of Lisa’s disappearance and does not remember checking on the baby after 6 pm. Now the attorney cover up begins as Tacopina states that the family will be doing no more interviews.
Tacopina said that the couple will not be doing any more television or radio interviews for the time being. He expressed his belief that the focus needs to stay on finding Lisa.
Tacopina said multiple times that he did not want to criticize the police investigation, but did express a desire for a more “boots on the ground” approach and said he wished certain unnamed things would have been done earlier.
