Months after Lisa’s disappearance, Irwin and Bradley noted that they were unhappy with how the investigation was being handled (via Today). In addition, they believed they had two leads that could aid in helping their daughter. The first was a bizarre debit card charge. Irwin’s card was stolen shortly after Lisa’s disappearance. Later, the card was fraudulently used for $69.09 on a British site that allowed legal name changes for children. SoapBoxie writes that nothing ever came from this lead. The second had to do with a phone call from one of three cell phones that were believed to be stolen the same night as Lisa’s disappearance.
According to All That’s interesting, records indicated that someone had made a 50-second call using the cell phone that night. Both Irwin and Bradley denied it was them. NBC News reports that the call was made to Megan Wright. She refuted that she had answered the phone and said she had nothing to do with the case. Strangely, Wright was known to be previously romantically involved with John Tanko — the man who had been questioned by police. But like the debit card incident, this short phone call was also a dead end.
