FOX23 learned the adoptive family of baby Veronica had an opportunity to see the girl, but didn’t.
Here is the very latest in this case. So far there is still no sign of baby Veronica or her biological father Dusten Brown. Her adoptive parents flew into Tulsa and spoke Wednesday asking to see the girl. Now we've learned, there has been an opportunity, but it came with a catch.
FOX23 uncovered the strange twist. When we asked Dusten Brown's attorney's why they wouldn't let the adoptive parents from South Carolina see Veronica he said he had made multiple efforts to make that happen.
FOX23 took that information to the Capobiancos' family friend and found out it wasn’t that simple.
“I think there's a sense of anxiousness, when you're this close instead of five states away," Jessica Munday said.
She is a friend who has been speaking on behalf of Matt and Melony Capobianco. The Capobiancos flew into Tulsa to find their adoptive daughter after a court's ruling in their favor and the failure on a part of her father to comply with the ruling. Yesterday in a news conference at the Hyatt Regency, they said they were here for a resolution and "a chance to visit with their daughter.”
However, today FOX23 found out from Dusten Brown's attorney that they had an offer to see the child. So FOX23 asked Munday why it hadn't happened yet.
“It's my understanding that getting to see her may be tied to offers,” Munday replied.
Yesterday the Capobiancos said they wanted to see the Browns stay in Veronica's life but the two parties haven't spoken directly. They've only gone through an attorney and as much as
the Copabiancos want to see Veronica, they didn’t feel comfortable responding to whatever stipulations are being put on any potential visit.
"We feel they should have an opportunity to visit with her before anything is determined in her long term future and her life,” Munday said.
FOX23 will stay in contact with both parties as the situation continues to develop.
