An eerie new development in the case of the 11-month-old baby, Lisa Irwin, who disappeared from her crib several weeks ago. Officials say an FBI cadaver dog indicated that it smelled death in the Kansas City home of Lisa's parents, Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin. The dog reacted to the scent of a dead person "in an area of the floor of Bradley's bedroom near the bed," according to the affidavit witness for the house search. In their search-warrant request, authorities said they were looking for DNA, fingerprints, cellphones, and evidence of human decomposition. Bradley said three cellphones were taken on the same day that her daughter disappeared.
