The more information that comes out about the Lisa Irwin missing baby case, the more questions that come up. And I mean on all sides of the argument. There are a lot of questions I have this morning that I would like to have the answers to so this could all in some way make sense.
First, to set the record straight, ABC’s website (http://abcnews.go.com/US/missing-baby-lisa-irwin-family-moving-back-home/story?id=14955776#.TsPKq1ZqyCgb)
is indicating that “a male witness who wished to remain anonymous told ‘GMA’
that the person who answered the phone was a drifter named Dane who was living
in a house Wright reportedly shared with other people.” That is inaccurate.
The video GMA, or Good Morning America, showed with that individual was taken
from a news story that aired on Fox4 in Kansas City starting Sunday night. After blogging last week about this source, I
drove him to the Fox4 studios Sunday afternoon to speak with reporter Dave
Dunn. To be clear, the reason for the
nondisclosure of the source’s name is that they do not wish the series of
follow-up queries from reporters. They
do not desire the spotlight, but they do want to help. The source told Dunn before we started the
interview that he was only doing this once.
As we left the studios, Dave asked him how to reach him for anything he
may want to follow up on. The source
pointed at me and told him, “You go through him. He knows how to reach me.”
Now, on to the questions that continue to surface. As I mentioned, there are a lot of unanswered
questions from several directions. In
asking, I am not at all being accusatory, I am saying there are holes that need
to be filled in.
First, I have reached out to Megan Wright in hopes that she can clarify this
for me. Megan initially indicated that
she did not know who was using her cell phone that night. Then, she told me that her roommates told her
it was Dane. Setting the scene for that
night, Megan told me she was downstairs where she slept clipping coupons with
Dane’s girlfriend and an ex-boyfriend (not Jersey). So, if there are two married couples and Dane
in the house and one of the married couples have their own cell phone, it
pretty much narrows down it had to be one of three other people. However, there were a couple of young men
from across the street and down the block that had visited briefly that
night. Them aside, if you want to know
who is using your cell phone, it should not be hard to figure out. It is either
the husband or wife of one of the married couples or Dane.
Megan cleared that up in a conversation we had this morning. By the way, aside from Facebook queries,
Megan tells me since my blog and discussion with her last week, the only formal
questions she have answered have come from me or CNN’s Jim Spellman.
Rugen: First, I think you said initially
that you didn’t know who was using your phone that night? Then you said roommates told you it was Dane?
Wright: Right. Then, after talking to
people in the house that were upstairs that night I was told that Dane had it
Rugen: When did you discover it was
Wright: About a week into the
Rugen: A week after Lisa was gone?
Wright: Yes. Around then.
Rugen: Okay, and why so long?
Wright: No one said anything about it
until then. I don't know why really. Not
for a lack of me asking.
Rugen: And why did you check your call
log that night? What prompted that?
Wright: I was trying to see if I had
missed any calls or messages, which happened a lot considering I left my phone
unattended for so long so frequently.
Rugen: Because you were clipping coupons
and you left the phone upstairs to share?
Wright: Yes. I was downstairs visiting
with (Dane’s girlfriend), who I had just met, and (an ex-boyfriend (Not Jersey)),
who was at the house to visit me. And we were listening to music, talking,
getting to know each other and clipping coupons.
Rugen: There were a couple of young men
from across the street and down the block that were there too?
Wright: He was there for just a brief
time that night. He was helping his sister move furniture with their family.
His friend popped in for a while then left I guess. He might have lingered
upstairs, but from what he told me, he went home shortly after going upstairs.
Now, why was Megan’s number called? It
had to be from someone, obviously, who had her number. We are told there was an 11:57pm call from
Deborah Bradley’s phone to Megan’s phone that did not go through. Who made the call? Regardless of who was
using Megan’s phone, who was the call intended for? Was someone trying to reach Dane, Megan, or
Jersey, not knowing that he and Megan broke up a week earlier? Was the number
programmed into Deborah’s phone or was it memorized by who ever made the call?
Keeping in mind at this point, Jersey had not been seen around the Wright
household for the week preceding. In the
days following, I am told he only came around once, reportedly driving into the
yard in a stolen minivan looking for Megan.
One of the roommates then reportedly chased him off.
On to that 11:57pm phone call from Bradley’s phone to Megan’s, it was not a
random phone number, logic tells us that.
Whether it was “butt-dialed” or purposely dialed, who ever dialed it
knew that phone number. Why would
someone be so stupid to take a baby, then call Megan Wright’s number knowing
that they just implicated someone on the other end to a crime thus leaving
Going with the theory that someone abducted Lisa and made that phone call to
Wright’s phone at 11:57pm, then there was an alleged eyewitness account by a
couple living near the home between 12:15 and 12:30am, what was that person
doing for the minimum of 18 minutes after using the cell phone considering the
close proximity of the “eyewitness”?
Granted, the phone call did not have to be made from the Bradley home,
but if you consider the eyewitness to be credible, you surely would not be
going back and forth down the street during that time.
There was a news report last week that there were cell phone pings around 1/3
of a mile away. That means it was a 2/3
mile radius from the ping. If you go in
one direction from the Bradley/Irwin home, the dumpster is within that
radius. In another direction, the creek
that runs behind the house is within the range.
However, again, if the phone was in this person’s possession at 11:57pm,
the dumpster fire did not occur for another couple of hours.
While we are on the cell phone, the pings dropped off sometime 3:22am or
after. So, between this time and 4am or
earlier when Jeremy got home, someone attempted to access internet and voice
mail from Bradley’s phone. Why? Whether you be Bradley or an abductor,
depending on the version you believe, why? What are you looking for on the internet? Why
would anybody besides Bradley care about her voice mail? Unless, you have her phone since around
midnight and you have a missed call and you think the person on the other end
was stupid enough to leave you, the abductor, a message.
By the way, remember the recent interview with the Deborah's father who loaned his cell phone, the one in question, to Deborah. He described it as a "plain jane" phone. Is it not so "plain jane" that it had internet capabilities?
What causes a cell phone to stop pinging?
Either you remove the battery or you submerge it water or you set afire.
Regarding the cadaver dogs, I am not going to pretend to be an expert. But the cadaver dog “hit” is my stumbling
block toward believing that there was not an accident in the home that
night. From those I speak with, that
cadaver dog hit is valuable.
I am told that when it is said that a cadaver dog has a xx% accuracy, that does
not mean that when they do hit it is questionable. That means that there is an xx% chance they
may miss their hit if the handler does not guide them where the scent is. In other words, if you are in a room and you
are wearing perfume and have only been in one corner of the room, the dog would
have to be taken to that location in the room where you were as opposed to not
being led there. But when the dog
arrives, the hit occurs.
Exploring the possibility of an abduction, how would the potential abductor know
that Jeremy would not be there that night and Deborah would be so out of it,
they would go undetected? Did an abductor
wait for the lights to go out and then get in the house with Deborah passed
out? What would be their motive? Would they have blamed Deborah for something
that happened in their life that they sought revenge for?
On to another angle, we know Jersey has been looked at. Both Megan Wright and her roommate told me
last week that Jersey is the kind of guy who would try to turn a dime into a
dollar. But if you question whether
someone took the baby to sell, how do you find a baby buyer? You don’t go on Craig’s List to find someone
who will buy a baby from you.
I ask these questions not to accuse anybody of anything. Honestly, I do not know what happened and I
can see several different possibilities.
However, there are a lot of questions like these that I would like the
answers to, in a perfect world.
