Two women who say they are former friends of Deborah Bradley say they knew her around 2002, and that were part of a group of military wives that used to spend a lot of time together as neighbors in the same military community.
Shirley Pfaff said she used to be one of Bradley's closest confidants, and her kids would play together nearly every day. The two would hang out together in various social settings.
Pfaff now lives in Erie, PA.
"We met each other in Ft. Bragg, NC. Both our husbands were stationed in the military, and they were young...new in the military. That was their first duty station and that is how we became friends," said Shirley Pfaff, a former friend of Bradley.
"She was definitely just an attention hound. It was just like I said, it was almost like I couldn't have other friends around her because she would just do things to try to cause a scene everywhere," Pfaff added. "She would go out with us. I mean me and my friend, Jamie, we would go out to the clubs and stuff. She would come with us just to the local clubs out there that she could get into. She was drinking yeah...She drank."
In an interview with People magazine, Bradley admits to drinking the night baby Lisa went missing.
She was also seen buying wine, as well as baby food and wipes on surveillance video that very same night.
Sara Evarts, whose ex-husband was also stationed at Ft. Bragg, says she used to live next door to Bradley.
Evarts and Bradley have not kept in touch since leaving Ft. Bragg several years ago.
Evarts said she was immediately concerned upon hearing the news that baby Lisa was missing.
"I found out Oct. 11, because Shirley posted it on my wall on Facebook, and when I first read about it, I was filled with sympathy," said Sara Evarts, a former friend of Bradley. "I couldn't believe it. This is such a horrible thing for anyone to go through. I was like 'oh, my God, the poor baby.'"
