KANSAS CITY, Mo. - An FBI cadaver dog indicated a positive "hit" near a bed in the Irwin household, according to the warrant obtained by NewsChannel 5 sister station NBC Action News Friday afternoon.
The documents indicate that the hit of the scent of a deceased human was in "an area of the floor of [Deborah] Bradley's bedroom near the bed" on Oct. 17.
The document also stated that "investigative interviews with the people involved revealed conflicting information for clear direction in the investigation. Bradley made the statement she did not initially look for her baby in the backyard because she 'was afraid of what she might find.' The extent of the search had been limited in nature with consent although each search has recovered evidence helpful to further progress the investigation."
Items taken from the residence included:
a multi-colored comforter
a multi-color Disney character shirt
a glow worm toy
a "Cars" themed blanket
Rolls of tape
Earlier Friday, Cynthia Short, the local attorney representing the Irwins, released a statement outlining the extent of Lisa's family's participation in the investigation including submitting to multiple searches, consenting to buccal swabs, hair samples and interviews.
"The police, however, have starved these parents by withholding information about the investigation," the release said. "The police have isolated the parents and repeatedly told the press that they are not cooperating. Lisa's parents are cooperating with this investigation and will continue to offer their help in the search for their beautiful little girl."
The warrant was served on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011.
Earlier on Tuesday, about 20 investigators, some with dogs, searched a large wooded area off North Brighton Avenue and 34th Terrace, near Lisa's home.
The Tuesday afternoon search also prompted officials with the Federal Aviation Administration to initiate a no fly zone over the search area for a radius of 1.15077945 miles.
Young said the search of the area was due to a developed lead in the case.
While investigators were searching, Lisa’s parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, were at Lisa’s uncle’s house in the Northland.
