Story includes raw video so you can see yourselves. More video will be added in the AM.
(Irwin) said Wednesday was an especially difficult day.
"Obviously, it's a pretty hard time for us today," he said.
Irwin attended a balloon release in his daughter's behalf held in front of the family home on Lister Avenue Wednesday evening.
"It doesn't get any easier," he said. "She is still out there and we're still looking."
DeAnn-do you know why Deb wasn't there?
OMG.. Look how uncomfortable he looks! Look how much he's blinking!
Not someone determined to find his missing child if you ask me...
Plus he's STILL blaming the investigators and the investigation?
It's just MOO. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and it surely won't be the last!

I think it's good that Jeremy was there and did speak because I hope that means the national media will get interested again in hopes of getting police and everyone the answers we all want. I can't go to the airport or the casinos without thinking about that night and what happened.
At least it will be prominent news in Kansas City again.
Not DeAnn here and very sorry, I do not mean to butt in ... but taking a "wild guess" :
Deb's attorney told her NOT to attend ... her defense attorneys do NOT want her talking to the media -- unless, of course, one of the 2 attorneys are present with Deb so they can CONTROL the responses to the questions on behalf of their clients ...
I thought Jeremy was asked about the investigation and he sidestepped the question and didn't question police? Did he criticize police?
Apparently Debbie talked to a local reporter for 30 minutes by phone today.
Thanks Deann for the post, and your story.
Yes Jeremy looked uncomfortable, I can't blame him.
To me it seemed he was trying to keep his composure.

Truly very nice to see them talking to local media.

I think my post was mis-read ... lol ... I was taking a "wild guess" as to "why" Deb was not at the balloon release ...
I re-posted my original post below.
JMO ... but I would bet the farm that Deb's defense attorneys did NOT want her there ... also, the media would have been "all over her" -- and -- probably some of the participants ...
JMO ... but that's what defense attorneys do : "spin" ... "approve" and "control" questions for interviews ... state "mistruths" ...
All JMO and MOO ...
Respectfully, I'd like to point out to those who may criticize how JI behaved on camera to remember Tori Stafford's mom. She was ripped to shreds - and had nothing to do with her daughter's death. There's not one true script to follow in situations like this. Everyone is different.

In no way should any of my statements be construed as legal opinion or advice. I am a newly practicing lawyer (yay!) but not a verified poster here at WS. The above statement(s) are an expression of my personal opinion, for entertainment purposes only, and copyright.
I just watched the video and have to say that this is the most animated that I have seen JI. He did look uncomfortable, but I doubt that he would feel comfortable in any interview. The reason that I think that he was a bit more animated than usual was because DB wasn't standing or sitting next to him digging her fingernails into his leg or hand.
When asked if he was happy with investigators, well he didn't SAY anything negative, but his face and reaction said it all. He is not happy with investigators.
I would hardly call his behavior as being "laid back". At least I HOPE he isn't laid back. That would be somewhat of a negative thing, I would think, for a father of a missing baby to be laid back.
He said that he couldn't talk about it but "there are reasons for what we are doing". I can bet that there are definitely reasons. I think that the DT has finally figured out that sitting back and doing absolutely nothing is not helping their clients at all and looks much worse for them.
Personally, if my child were missing, I would tell anyone who told me to sit back and do nothing to GO POUND SAND!!! Seriously! What a waste this DT is...
