On October 9th, the police staged a break-in to the home of missing Lisa Irwin’s family to put the intruder theory to the test. Although they by and large refused to comment, the cameras showed investigators struggling to obtain entry without making a good deal of noise.
“What the cameras saw speaks for itself,” said Captain Steve Young.
A front window showed tampering, perhaps indicating a point of entry for an intruder. Film of the staged event showed the police unable to quietly enter the home, a screen loudly falling as they clambered through the window.
Though over 250 tips have flooded in during the course of the investigation, no viable leads have been found. Police continue to investigate, focusing mainly on the family now.
