    I agree, but I think DB's thinking might have been that the boys were there at the house. . .so BL wasn't truly "alone".

    Personally, I can't think of anyone wanting to sit on that hard cement porch of Deb's. Looks very uncomfortable to me. Unless they drug some lawn chairs around there.
    No one else would know except the ones who were there but LE can't confirm it because they weren't there, either.
    Ok, back to lurking.

    I know I wouldn't, it's all about comfort. They had nice chairs on the back deck, no, there was a reason for this display...MOO

    What's interesting is that DB claimed she essentially got *****faced. And while I don't care if she was in the front or the back (seems pretty easy to fact-check), my question is: who gets trashed in the front yard where everyone can see you? What I find most interesting is that the BACK PORCH would not only have been right next to Lisa's room, but also the boy's room where they were supposedly watching a video.
    Wait, what were DB's words when she couldn't find Lisa? She didn't want to look in the back yard because she was afraid of what she might find? Seems to me like she was avoiding the back yard all night. IMO

    OKay, I probably typed that last bit too fast What I was trying to say is that adult time or no, you would think that with young kids in the house you'd still want to have some kind of basic supervision. Why would you go on the front porch where you couldn't see or hear them (also where if you got obnoxiously drunk you'd probably get a complaint called in)? By sitting on the back porch, she could have left the boys' window open and would have been able to at least keep an ear out for what they were up to. It does seem that given the circumstances, she did her best to avoid being on that back porch, even though it would have prevented the children inside from having absolutely no supervision whatsoever.

    Your post about the baby monitor made me think of something else ... FWIW ... LOL !

    IF -- IF -- DB and neighbor were on the neighbor's porch that night, I wonder IF Deb brought her "box of wine" over there with her while she was on the "neighbor's porch" ? Or, did she go back into her home and re-fill her glass ?

    Now that is an interesting "possibility" !

    And yes, DB's statement : that she did NOT want to look into the backyard because she was AFRAID of what she MIGHT find ...

    So ... your baby is "missing" and you do NOT want to check the backyard ? Hmmm ... now WHY is that, Deb ?

    I must be the only one who didn't find that statement from her to be odd. I just don't. I took it as she was afraid that Baby Lisa may have been killed and left back there, or something along those lines.

    I know, as soon as I heard that remark, I got goose bumps. Do you remember how soon after Baby Lisa went missing DB said that?

    I know that no one can know for certain *exactly* how they would react if their child went missing--- but I'm pretty darn sure the basic instinct is to find the child as opposed to avoid places you're afraid the child might be. I mean, on the rare occasion I lose sight of my son, I look everywhere as fast as I can (he's usually hiding under the bed and gives a shriek of laughter when I find him).
    When you lose track of your child, THAT is fear.
    I felt in my heart that DB was guilty when I heard her say she didn't check the back yard because she was afraid of what she might find. To me, that sounds like prior knowledge. If I were terrified of my child being in the backyard (or the pool, or guzzling chemicals under the sink, whatever) that would actually be one of the first places I'd look. It helps you keep from screaming in a panic when you see that the front door is still locked-- they didn't wander outside, so they must be inside somewhere.

    This is an interesting theory-- I'm not sure how high the back deck is (it's hard to tell from the pictures I have), but I know it has 6 steps to get up on it from the yard including the "step" that is the deck itself. The floor of the deck varies in height from the sloped lawn. Closer to the house it is about hip level, whereas at its furthest point it is near shoulder level with investigators.
    The spokes on the deck don't appear to have enough room in between them for a baby to fit through, which leaves the stairs.
    In reference to your theory... did anyone else think it was odd that the parents used only a physical description of Lisa? I mean, at 10 months, some babies are more advanced than others at various things. Crawling, walking, talking, etc. Physical feats that a baby can accomplish seem just as good as identifying material as visual characteristics. We've seen photos where Lisa is standing/leaning against a glass door, so I think it's safe to say she could hold/pull herself up. How good was she at "cruising?" (When an infant can walk while holding on to something like a couch or wall).
    I think the biggest mystery in this whole scenario would be: where is Lisa's body (if you believe she is no longer with us) or how did Lisa get away from the house (if you believe she was sold or knowingly taken in another fashion).
    And for the life of me, I can't figure it out. Cadaver dogs and Luminol would show evidence of foul play-- and while it was leaked the dog hit a positive at the foot of the bed, I wonder if it hit anywhere else?
    And assuming Lisa was going to be taken way that night with her parent's knowledge... how random would that surprise job at Starbucks have been? Or was that a lucky coincidence on their part? So many loose ends... so many possibilities...

    I now believe that baby Lisa was either found dead or died during the early evening, after JI went to work. I personally believe it was an accident of some kind, and by DB's hand.

    I think that the entire night of sitting on the front stoop was so that as many people as possible would see her for hours on end, with a friend, and seeing her would provide her with an alibi. In looking at the difference between the front and back of the house, there is such an extreme contrast from front to back. What would be a logical reason that DB and SB would sit in the front vs the back. They have a nice deck that have chairs. Why sit on hard cement for hours on end.

    Here is the difference between the front and back. What do you think?

    Front porch:

    Back deck:

    Speaking of these pictures.... which ones are actually Lisa's house? Because I've been to several different sites, and there seem to be pictures of two different (but similar) houses. The back deck I see them tearing up is not the one in these pictures, but this photo of the back porch is also one I see in reference to Lisa.
    Has anyone else noticed that?
    (so confused!)

    Those pictures are both Lisa's house. The back deck wasn't torn out of her house, that was another house in the 3800 block of N.Brighton. The house was demolished that day, also.

    http://www.kshb.com/dpp/news/region_...y-vacant-house

    After arriving to the house at about 10:30 a.m. this morning, authorities set up a tripod around a well underneath a deck on the home in the 3800 block of North Brighton. Two investigators, sent down one at a time, rappelled into the well.

    No Meri, you're not the only one. I took her to mean that she was just too frightened to go back there.
    In her situation I think I would have been too. Jeremy was there and I'm sure he looked.

    JMO and MOO ...

    BBM: IF -- IF Deb was "too frightened" to go back there and check for Lisa ... can you just imagine how frightened a helpless, 10 month old baby would feel to be back there all ALONE ?

    A "truly frantic parent" would be running around all over the home, the front and back yards, etc. not even considering, or thinking about their OWN SELF or "safety" IF -- IF their child was "kidnapped" ...

    JMO but this statement made by Deb really showed "selfishness" ... as well as HINK !

    the statement about deb not going to the back yard to look b/c she was afraid of what she might find was made public the friday following the search... it was included in the affidavit for the search... i've not seen an actual date affixed to it yet... maybe it's in the search warrant itself? maybe nina knows more?

    No specific date attached to it. Page 5, paragraph 9:

    "Investigative interviews with the people involved revealed conflicting information for clear direction in the investigation. Bradley made the statement she did not initially look for her baby behind the house because she "was afraid of what she might find."

    I wouldn't have been scared for myself. I would have been scared for my baby. And, because of this, I would have covered, and still be covering, every square inch of that home and area within 100 miles. I wouldn't be hiding in a house, hoping for this all to go away.

    I think I also had one other picture confused--- the house with the well under the deck that they tore up. I'm still new to websleuths and dont know how to add pictures, so I did what I could with quotes

    My neighbours still have smallish kids (8 and 12) and I know when we are over there on weekends, her kids play video games while we adults are outside. However, they are constantly outside for SOMETHING ie asking for a drink, or a treat, or a hug, or a "oh I forgot to tell you something", or a "Can I" etc etc. As well the parents are constantly taking turns in and out of house to check on the kids.

    It does seem as though not much checking on the kids was going on from the reports although I am not sure how often they were checked on. It seems these kids were much younger than my neighbours kids and I could see how things could get quickly out of hand if noone was regularly checking on the kids. It certainly wouldn't be a safe idea to not check regularly. To me if it was not the other children's bedtimes then they should have been outside being monitored with the parents as they sound too young to NOT be monitored especially with a baby back there.

    I agree. I have 2 kids; 5 yrs old and 10 months old. There is no way I could sit outside my house for more than 5 minutes without someone needing something. There is also no way I could put a sick baby in bed at 6 something and go outside without a baby monitor. I have found with both girls, when they are sick they want to be held and loved, not alone in a bed. But I guess all kids (and parents) are different. Could be that everyone in the Bradly/Irwin house is use to fending for themselves once mommy starts her "adult time".

    I brought this over to this thread because it seems to be more appropriate. I'm not sure what Shane told LE but we do know what he told CNN's Jim Spellman.
    So he goes over sometimes around roughly 8pm and stays for about an hour and a half. They all smoke. He says he wasn't drinking and though he didn't see the ladies actually pouring booze into their cups he said he could tell they were drinking...having fun, a little loud.
    So while he didn't see them pour alcohol into their cups, he knew that they were drinking. His comments are interesting in the fact that while he was there for an hour and a half, he didn't see them pour anything. So either they had really big cups or they didn't drink much in that hour and a half. Or maybe he wasn't paying attention when they did pour. Hard to say.

    If you put Shane's description of what DB and SB were doing on the porch along with the surveillance video of DB buying alcohol plus DB's own admission, you end up with some strong circumstantial evidence that DB was drinking that night. How intoxicated she was is impossible to tell, but it appears to me that the drinking she did may have a bearing on this case.

    It could be a factor in why the front door was left unlocked. It could also help explain how someone could have come into the house and taken Lisa without DB hearing it. MOO.
