Missing baby’s family hires Van der Sloot attorney

October 17, 2011


— A prominent New York City defense attorney has been hired to represent the parents of a missing Kansas City baby.

Joe Tacopina told reporters Monday that he had been hired to represent Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley. His past clients have included Joran Van der Sloot, the Dutch man suspected in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

Tacopina praised Kansas City police for their investigation but insisted the parents have "nothing to hide."

Bradley told NBC's "Today" show in an interview aired Monday morning that she believes she will be arrested in her daughter's Oct. 4 disappearance. She told Fox News in another interview that she was drunk and may have blacked out. But she insists she did nothing to harm her daughter.

I think Fox News has the best coverage so far. Don't you?

Getting famous with taking free cases like this is why they charge the rest $750 an hour.

the only thing that makes me think these parents are not lying is the fact that they're mouth breathers, not criminal masterminds. all the CSI marathons in the world wouldn't be able to educate these bumpkins in a way that would fool a forensics team. ...but with that said, something is really fishy about the whole case.
