Lisa Erwin’s parents hold press conference on her first birthday

The parents of missing Missouri tot Lisa Irwin marked the girl’s first birthday today by holding a news conference in which their lawyer claimed that police have indicated that they are suspects in Lisa’s disappearance.

The police denied indicating to the parents that they are suspects, marking the latest round of sparring between the parents and police.

Lisa disappeared from her Missouri home on the night of Oct. 3 and her parents have maintained since then that the little girl was abducted from her crib.

When asked if he thought police consider parents Deborah Bradley, 25, and Jeremy Irwin, 29, suspects, criminal defense attorney John Picerno replied, “Absolutely. They’ve told them as much, Debbie in particular.”

Picerno said he was “not at liberty” to elaborate further on the issue.

The Kansas City Police Department denies the claim that Bradley and Irwin are suspects.

“We don’t have any suspects,” Police Capt. Steve Young told today. “We still would like to speak to them again.”

Police say Bradley and Irwin have not agreed to sit down separately for extensive police interviews since Oct. 8 and say there are still questions they would like answered from the couple. Authorities say the parents have responded to questions regarding specific tips or issues, but have not agreed to unrestricted questioning. Young replied, “I don’t think it works that way.”
