The Kansas City parents of a missing baby girl are facing a new dilemma: An FBI cadaver dog has sniffed out the scent of a dead body in their home, the AP reports. The dog found a "positive 'hit' ... in an area of the floor of Bradley's bedroom near the bed," according to a court document released yesterday. The document also says investigators discovered "recently disturbed or overturned" dirt in the family's backyard.
The Bradleys' high-profile attorney, Joe Tacopina, noted that cadaver dogs also react to the scent of human waste—like "a dirty diaper or 10 other non-human-remains items. There's really no scenario where this baby, God forbid she was dead, would have decomposed in that short a period of time." The parents themselves are keeping mum: After mother Deborah Bradley recently admitted on the Today show to getting drunk after putting her baby to bed, Tacopina told both parents to stop talking to the media.
