Missing Baby Lisa Irwin: New Names, New Details Emerge

Yahoo Contributor Network

New names and new details coming to light about the missing baby Lisa Irwin case could upend the story familiar to the public. One new witness has come forward and placed himself at the Irwin-Bradley home on the evening on Oct. 3. Megan Wright, the woman whose phone received an 8:30 p.m. phone call that night from Deborah Bradley's phone says she knows who took the call. Wright has taken to Facebook to answer questions posed by the public.

Here's some of that potentially game-changing new information reported:

* Neighbor Shane Beagley now says he was at the Irwin-Bradley home in the hours before baby Lisa is said to have disappeared, according to media reports. As described by the Examiner, Beagley claims to have smoked and chatted with Bradley and her next-door-neighbor Samantha Brando on Bradley's front stoop from about 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. He left the Bradley house about 8:30 p.m. or 9 p.m., he told CNN correspondent Jim Spellman. He also claims to have seen Brando at her own home at 10:30 and says he didn't see Bradley at that time. Beagley said he didn't see baby Lisa and no one went inside to check on the kids during the hours he was present.

* Local residents writing on a Facebook page dedicated to finding baby Lisa noted that Beagley was interviewed in the early days of the case and didn't mention being at the Irwin-Bradley home that night. His claim is inconsistent with the timeline of events provided by Deborah Bradley.

* Megan Wright, the woman whose phone received the 8:30 p.m. phone call from Bradley's phone, has opened herself up to public questions on the Justice for Lisa Irwin Facebook page. Wright spent time last night answering questions posed by friends of the page. The page administrator promised to accept friend requests from anyone.

* Wright says the person who had her phone at 8:30 p.m. is a man who temporarily stayed in the house where she was living with seven other people. He has since disappeared. She identified him as Dane L. Greathouse, aka Dane Diggler.

* Fox News reported that a member of Wright's household it didn't identify disputes Wright's claim that household residents all shared her phone.

* Bradley and baby Lisa's father Jeremy Irwin started a new Facebook page devoted to finding their daughter.

* Fox News says the police interviews of Bradley's and Irwin's sons will be held this week. The interviews were previously scheduled in canceled. The family's attorney Joe Tacopina had promised to reschedule the interviews last week but didn't follow through.
