Interviews of missing Mo. baby's brothers delayed

KANSAS CITY — Kansas City police have postponed interviews with the brothers of a missing baby at the family's request.

Capt. Steve Young said police interviews with the 5- and 8-year-old sons of Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin scheduled for Friday were postponed at the request of a family lawyer, Joe Tacopina. Young said Tacopina indicated interviews might be held next week.

Young said he doesn't know why the attorney requested the postponement.

Police talked to the boys after their sister, Lisa, was reported missing Oct. 4 but said Bradley and Irwin haven't allowed them to interview the boys since. The boys are the couple's sons from previous relationships.

The parents have said the baby disappeared from her crib while Bradley was sleeping.

Police said they have no suspects in Lisa's disappearance.
