Madeleine McCann 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
There has been what appears to be a major development in this case. German police are investigating a jailed child (and adult) sex offender on suspicion of Madeleine McCann's murder. He apparently used to spend time in that part of Portugal, was near where the McCann family were staying when Madeleine disappeared (according to phone records), transferred a car to another person's name the day after she disappeared and also had a history of committing burglaries in hotel complexes.

Madeleine McCann 'assumed dead' by German prosecutors

MWT is all over this, needless to say, but pointing out that British police are still considering Madeleine McCann a missing person not a murder victim. This is despite himself expressing the view that she is dead.

'The sad reality is, this far on, the likelihood of Madeleine being alive now is incredibly slim. Unfortunately, in almost every case of stranger child abduction, within the space of 24 hours the child is dead.'

Madeleine McCann’s parents slam ‘heartless’ ex-cop for saying Maddie will never be found as they ‘still have hope’

If this turns out to be the person responsible, the anti-McCanns will be fuming. So many opportunities to bash the McCanns lost. Not that I suppose it will stop them. I seem to remember Anna Raccoon saying she had moderated a board frequented by anti-McCanns and that it was an absolute snake-pit.

Indeed she did and said it appeared to bring out the worst in people.

I have a feeling nothing will come out of it.

You don't hear about Charlene Downes in the press.

Re:Madeleine McCann 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
There are probably lots of missing children you don't hear about in the press, unfortunately. That's something the anti-McCanns seem to go on about, as another stick with which to beat the McCanns. The fate of Madeleine McCann seems to be of secondary importance to the anti-McCanns, compared to their hatred of her parents. Perhaps the parents being GPs and therefore of above-average intelligence and income, not to mention being photogenic and articulate, has helped keep the story current. But I don't think the parents should be blamed for trying to keep people aware that their daughter is still missing or for the media being more interested in their story than in others. It's understandable that they're going to fight for their child and use all means at their disposal to do so.

It's MWT, I'm afraid, on This Morning, but he's quite informative. Also pointing out that he had put forward the theory of a stranger abduction from the start, though I'd have thought most people (apart from the anti-McCanns) would have concluded that.

Any one can have a theory about this case without evidence. It was either a joke or passing comment in the pub. We will have to see.

The McCanns knew that she couldn't have got out of the room herself, and her toy had been placed on a shelf way out of her reach.

He either couldn't be bothered to read the basic facts, or he was saying that they were lying.

I am extremely uncomfortable about this suspect's name being published everywhere, and the appeal for information from everyone that ever saw him.

This is no different to creating false accusations by appeals and compensation. It stinks!

I have also been thinking that the pub comment may have been a "joke" and there might be a risk of false allegations, especially when a reward is available.

"The joint appeal from the British, German and Portuguese police includes a £20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person responsible for Madeleine's disappearance."

Re:Madeleine McCann 2 Months ago  
hedda, I would welcome your views on this.

An Australian journalist called Mark Saunokonoko has a podcast series on the Madeleine McCann case. I dipped into one of them and he was going on about paedophiles in the UK, referring to the accusations against Sir Clement Freud as if they were reliable and saying that the McCanns were connected to a firm owned by some relative of his, as if this was suspicious. So my impression was that he was entertaining and/or spreading false allegations/conspiracy theories. He seems to have been in touch with Goncalo Amaral, the Portuguese policeman in charge of the original investigation but subsequently sacked, and it looks as if he may sympathise with his view, i.e. that the parents were responsible.

From his Twitter page:

"A LOT of Madeleine McCann noise right now. But where's the evidence against Christian B linking him to Maddie's disappearance?"

"Here's how Goncalo Amaral accurately foreshadowed today's developments more than one year ago, describing a German 'scapegoat'…"

"Quite incredible how Jim Gamble went from suspecting Gerry McCann to inviting him to speak at a CEOP conference 26 Jan 2010…"


He's apparently a senior journalist at Nine News.
