Cadaver Dog 'Hit' at Missing Baby's Home
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Police say an FBI dog reacted to the scent of a dead person inside the Kansas City home where a baby girl disappeared and investigators found soil in the backyard that
had been "recently disturbed or overturned."
The statements came in a police affidavit filed to support a search warrant for the home of Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin.
The parents reported their then-10-month-old daughter, Lisa, missing Oct. 4.
The document released Friday also says Bradley told police she didn't initially look for her baby behind the house because she was afraid of what she might find.
The details led a Wednesday search of the home, where investigators took items including a comforter and rolls of tape.
The parents insist they had nothing to do with the girl's disappearance.
