News Media Exhaust Kansas City Family In Child-Abduction Case


The attorney for the parents of missing 11-month-old Lisa Irwin in Kansas City canceled a scheduled media tour of the couple's home as well as a press conference slated for this afternoon, reports the Kansas City Star. Lisa has been missing since Oct. 4, the day her parents said she had been abducted from the family home, in a case that has had national media attention.

“The last few weeks have been exhausting to everyone working on behalf of the Irwin family, it has exhausted Lisa's parents and her friends and family,” said attorney Cynthia Short. “We all need a rest.” Pool photographers were scheduled to tour the family home, and the images were to be distributed to Kansas City and national media outlets. Short's law firm has pledged to issue daily media updates to reporters. It also issued a flier promoting a $100,000 reward for information in the case.
