KATE MCCANN'S ATTACK ON 'LIES' OVER DRUGS FOUND IN MADDIE FLAT
Story Image


Kate McCann with her husband, Gerry at a news conference

Sunday May 6,2012
By James Murray and Tracey Kandohia

KATE McCANN has responded angrily to attacks against her and her husband by Spanish ­television producers over drugs found after the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine.

In a new epilogue for the paperback edition of her book, Madeleine, Kate reveals that drugs filmed being removed from the apartment they were renting in Portugal were actually ­Parkinson’s drugs to treat her father Brian, who has the illness, and not sedatives.

She said she and Gerry were confronted by a “propaganda” film just before giving an ­interview during a Spanish ­television programme.

They sat in stunned silence as “damning images” gathered from the media and Portuguese files were displayed on a big screen. The shots included ­barking dogs trained to find dead bodies, books, documents and medicines taken from the villa they had rented in Praia da Luz after the disappearance of their daughter from apartment 5a of the Ocean Club. Kate writes: “The commentary presented these ‘exhibits’ as fact, as evidence of guilt.

“One of the books was a novel Gerry had taken to Portugal as holiday reading, The Interpretation Of Murder, a best-selling historical crime thriller inspired by a visit made to New York by Sigmund Freud in 1909, presumably ­singled out for no other reason than its sinister title.

ì
New leads are ­coming to light
î

Kate and Gerry McCann

“The tablets shown were actually my father’s Parkinson’s disease medication, as was confirmed by the patient’s name on the packets, conveniently out of shot, and not, as the voiceover suggested, sedatives that we had administered to our children.

“The Portuguese police knew this, and so would the producers of the programme, had they properly read the book they were supposed to be interviewing us about.

“I’ve run out of superlatives to adequately express my shock and disgust at this abhorrent behaviour.” Although she does not say so in her new chapter, Kate’s ­parents, Brian and Susan Healy, flew to join them to offer support in Portugal after Madeleine ­disappeared on May 3, 2007.

The epilogue is largely a tirade against the media but Kate does say of Scotland Yard’s investigative review of the case: “Almost immediately Gerry and I felt ­confident, reassured and hopeful. We know the review will be a long haul and results won’t appear overnight.

“We know the ‘golden nugget’ may not be among the data ­accumulated thus far but what we are sure of is that this ­process, whether it takes months or years, will bring us closer to attaining our goal, and possibly even all the way there.

“From the moment I heard the news of this major step forward for Madeleine, a positive feeling had begun to spread inside me and it has remained with me ever since.”

The paperback will be ­published on May 10 by Corgi Books priced £7.99.

Meanwhile, Kate and Gerry say they are more hopeful than ever that Madeleine will be “back home soon” after revealing: “New leads are ­coming to light”.

The couple told ­well-wishers in their village of Rothley, Leicestershire, they now had “the best chance” of finding Madeleine.

Gerry addressed crowds who had gathered to support the ­family and pray for Madeleine on the fifth anniversary of her dis­appearance. He said: “We are very positive.

“There is information, coming directly from us, and there is real, new information. New leads are coming to light. The Metropolitan Police are determined to get to the bottom of this.”

Why would they take Pa Healy's medicine on holiday with them to Portugal when he wasn't going?

Oh, this is priceless - it raises so many more questions than it actually answers. The McCanns have even more explaining to do.

This is all going to end very badly.

The police did not remove the tablets on the 3rd I don't think. I think Kate's parents must have gone out there some hours later and these are the tablets the police removed. That's how I read it. Mind you, the tablets would still have to be removed to be analysed properly, but is the inference that they were some other sort of drug Kate's interpretation of what she thought the PJ were saying, or did the PJ jump in with an assumption?

Iris, did Ma and Pa go over soon after Madeleine disappeared or just Ma? Whichever it was, I don't think they were still there when the McCanns moved house. And why would the meds be on Kate and Gerry's bedside table?

When Kate's mother flew out to Portugal for the first time after Madeleine's disappearance, she flew out with the Merseyside Priest, because her husband was too sick to travel.

There is a photograph that shows tablets on a table in the McCanns PDL flat and had Madeleine got out of bed, she had would have had access to those tablets, always assuming those tablets were on the table at the time she was home alone. If she was home alone.

Lots of surprises in this article. Amazed at seeing this in print:

“One of the books was a novel Gerry had taken to Portugal as holiday reading, The Interpretation Of Murder, a best-selling historical crime thriller inspired by a visit made to New York by Sigmund Freud in 1909, presumably ­singled out for no other reason than its sinister title.

They arent celebs though are they, they just think they are, oh the times they are a changing. Was K concentrating on the tablets to direct attention away from the other images of.........barking dogs trained to find dead bodies, books, The interpretation of Murder, was this where there was a CEOP manual as well ....... she does say the patients name on the packet was conveniently out of shot why would the PJ take her fathers tablets away from him, i sure someone could have explained what they were for.

That's right, and it says that the tablets were removed from an apartment, not a villa. So it must have been very shortly after Maddie's disappearance, and Pa Healy didn't fly out until much later. So what were his tablets doing there?

WTF? Is it just me or is this news to every else who has been following the case for the past 5 years?

The shots included ­barking dogs trained to find dead bodies ......

And yet she seems far more angry about the meds ......


There is information, coming directly from us, and there is real, new information.

Badly worded IMO - he's making it sound as if the info coming from them isn't real ...

Well here is a radical idea for you all. Maybe they were different tablets from a big bottle, put in a smaller, old bottle, for convenience!

Just taking an opportunity to explain away thoughts of the children being drugged with sedatives, ignoring the dead bodies dog......... must have been a huge elephant in the room.

I've just been searching on YouTube for the video in that second apartment, where there is a photo of Madeleine with the rosary and med packs on a bedside table. Anyone?

Then Kate is an extremely stupid woman if she hasn't twigged that this is a very bad idea.

I'd be interested in knowing the exact name of the drugs as parkinson's drugs generally used are sedatives...
