    Jeremy Irwin attends balloon release, talks to reporters on 6-month anniversary mark

    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."

    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?
    Wow...
    It's just MOO. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and it surely won't be the last!

    I do not know.

    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.

    I see it differently. I see someone absolutely devastated who is trying not to break down in public. I guess I just feel differently about Jeremy and Deb than many here. The way they speak etc reminds me of myself and my husband. So in some ways I can see how things have spiraled out of control and could be taken out of context. I have my reasons for thinking this but I really don't want to go into my personal life too much. I don't know for sure if they are innocent or guilty, but I have my own ideas about it. I'm not thoroughly convinced either way.

    I thought that was pretty significant.

    again-- that is a misrepresentation of what SY said. see the 6 month thread

    That is what I saw, as well. Jeremy is not a sophisticated guy; he is a Missouri guy who is quiet and laid back. He wants his daughter back; he has been vilified with a lack of concrete evidence to warrant that.

    Either the link isn't working or the story has been pulled. I'm getting "unfortunately the story you requested isn't available."

    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.

    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.

    My observations:

    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...
    Please consider my comments as my opinion. I don't ask that you agree with me and you are free to scroll past my post. Thanks for respecting my opinion as much as I respect yours.
