Defense attorney picks ‘holes’ in the case against Irish nanny Aisling McCarthy Brady
Three week family trip abroad may hold clues to previous injuries
“Aisling was kind of in and out, helping but not working her normal hours with the child.
“On Monday she arrived and the child was sleeping. Her mother woke her up at 8.15am. Aisling then played with her as she was crying because her mother was leaving to go to work.
“The mother left at 9.30am. The child cried a little bit more, Aisling played with her and then put her down for a nap.
“People were in and out of the house in that time to see the baby. Somebody came over to bring another child.

“The baby woke up at about 1pm. Aisling tried to feed her. She ate a little bit and then slumped over and started to fall asleep again in the chair. So Aisling put her down for another nap.
“Now the authorities are trying to say that in the time period between about 2pm to 4.15pm, which is when people started coming back to the apartment, Aisling lost her temper and did something to the child.
“They are saying she shook her. My real problem with the case is that I can’t understand how you can shake a child that violently and cause those injuries without leaving a single mark on the child. Not a fingerprint, not a handprint.”
Thompson also told the Irish Sun that the police report states the tot suffered from pre-existing injuries which occurred during the holiday period when Aisling did not see the child.
She added: “There seems to be a lot of holes in this case. I believe in Aisling, I really do. I don’t think that she hurt this child, she loved her.
“She has been a nanny for 13 years and has never, ever hurt a child. They are coming up with stuff about a fight with a boyfriend but that has nothing to do with this.
“The police have charged prematurely. The autopsy is not even done yet. It’s a heartbreaking case. I feel horribly that someone lost a child, it’s the worst thing in the world. But I think if anyone is charged, I think it should be the right person.”
