KC Lawyer For Parents of Baby Lisa Explains Why she Left Case

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The local attorney for the parents of a missing Kansas City baby says she has left the case after a disagreement with another lawyer for the couple.

Kansas City attorney Cyndy Short told reporters Monday that she differed with New York attorney Joe Tacopina on their goals and approach to the case and that “one of us had to go.” That someone, Short said, was her.

The two had been representing parents Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley, who say someone must have snatched their baby girl Lisa Irwin in the middle of the night as the mom and two other boys slept.

The girl was 10 months old when she was reported missing on Oct. 4, and police say they have no suspects.
