With the national news media game fully afoot, it’s little surprise that the National Enquirer is on the case…
"The noose is tightening around the mother of baby Lisa Irwin – the 11-month-old baby found missing from her crib in her family’s Missouri home on Oct.4," the Enquirer story begins.
And police aren’t buying tot mom Deborah Bradley‘s story, a source close to the investigation tells the Enquirer.
"Her family members, and even Deborah herself expect she will ultimately be arrested and charged with a crime," the Enquirer says.
"Now that Bradley has lawyered up, authorities are even more convinced that she has something to hide, sources say," the Enquirer continues.
And inconsistancies in Bradley’s story continue to add to police suspicions.
"Her family claims Lisa was snatched by someone who crawled through a small window," the Enquirer reports. " ‘But police had a hard time getting through that window when they did a reenactment,’ the source told the Enquirer."
Another unanswered question: Who’s picking up the tab for celebrity New York lawyer Joe Tacopina? A lawyer who was reportedly charging $750 and hour four years ago.
"These people are not wealthy, but suddenly they could afford to hire hot-shot defense lawyer Tacopina," the source said. "Deborah doesn’t have a driver’s license or a car, but suddenly she has a car and private driver. It all looks very suspicious."
