The face of a mother's grief

Post  Wintabells on Mon 19 Aug - 21:01

Nicked this pic of KMcC from Blacksmith's latest blog post (I'm sure he won't mind) which can be found here: http://aninspectorcallsyou.blogspot.co.uk/

but it struck me how similar the two facial expressions are

Yes it is. Both have a guilty "what have I done" face.

A reminder of the Philpotts' press conference and a bit about how they gave themselves away.

In that photo Kate McCann looks like Gail Platt in Coronation Street. Neither is a good actor!

Good morning Lioned, there is a saying that 'beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but ugliness goes down to the bones.

These two women are vile and rotten to the core, in my opinion. I'm making no apologies for calling McCann and Philpott vile, because anyone who purposely causes harm or death to children is vile. Both will not accept that they are responsible for what happened to their children, neither will their partners, who are as vile and as rotten to the core as their wives.

Where the McCanns are concerned, their protectors and their wealthy supporters, who plied them with money, knowing that they have committed a crime against Madeleine, are also rotten to the core. in my humble opinion. Not one of these people have ever done anything to find Madeleine, in fact from what I've seen of them, Madeleine doesn't figure in their thoughts.

Both trying to affect being grief-stricken in exactly the same way... but it just doesn't wash.

I think this was one of the worst. She just contorted her mouth and looked so fraudulent

Yep. Agree. And something about the furrowed brow too. Mairead Philpott did the same.

WHEN did the PJ 'get and see' the 'last photo', released by Mccanns 21 days AFTER the 'event'?
IF it were in KM camera, as it was only supposed to have been taken only 7 hours 'earlier' surely the PJ would have had 'it' in their possesssion that same night or at the latest, the next day, wouldn't they?
I have never seen, the original of the 'last photo' straight from KM's camera 'published' in the files released but have seen the 'friends' different photos.
So does anyone know when the PJ first SAW the 'last photo'?
IF the PJ only saw it 21 days after 'event' what does that tell us?

The last picture of Madeleine: Just eight hours later she was gone

By PAUL HARRIS and SAM GREENHILL
Last updated at 16:40 25 May 2007

She must have been having so much fun.
Chuckling with delight, Madeleine McCann dangles her feet in a pool and poses for a holiday snapshot.
Less than eight hours after it was taken, Madeleine disappeared. So yesterday (24th May 2007, THREE weeks after 'event') this became the last, poignant picture of the missing four-year-old - released by her grief-stricken parents in their desperate campaign to bring her home.

This newly released photograph of Madeleine shows her laughing with her family on the day of her disappearance

It shows Madeleine with her father Gerry and two-year-old sister Amelie, sitting beside the pool in their Algarve holiday apartment complex. Her mother Kate is behind the camera with Amelie's twin brother Sean.
It could hardly have captured her character more perfectly - a cheeky little Miss in a pink summer dress and floppy hat, stealing the limelight as usual with that trademark smile.
That was at 2.29pm on May 3, a few days after the family checked in to an apartment in Praia da Luz and just nine days before her fourth birthday.
During the day of her disappearance they had all gone for a walk, played tennis, and taken some more snapshots for the family album before relaxing by the pool.
Some time between 9.10pm and 10pm, an abductor is assumed to have snatched her from her bed while her parents dined nearby.
_____________________________________________________

So, the image was IN Kate's camera. at 2:29pm, 3rd May 2007.
Why have the PJ NEVER ever 'commented' about when THEY first saw it?
Why did the McCanns NOT put the 'last photo' Maddie on posters on the 4th May 2007?
Then people would have 'known' who to look for, wouldn't they?
But, no, we got a photo that wasn't even taken in PDL and resembled no one that had been in PDL that week!

Gerry McCann said 'it is absolutely vital to get the most recent photograph you can into the media within HOURS'
(forgetting to mention it took HIM 3 WEEKS to do that!)

So how come he gave the media a photograph of someone no one would or could possibly recognise, by virture of bearing absolutely no resemblance to the 'Maddie', in the LAST photo? (the most RECENT, according to K&G McCann)
WHY?

ETA: WHY wasn't the 'last photo' Maddie featured at the launch of the 'fund'?
16th May 2007.
Contact names: Esther McVey, Adele Cropper

After all, it had been in their possession for at least 13 days by then, hadn't it?
So why not use it for publicity and people would know who to look for?

They have had no problem "cropping" the last photo since, have they?
Why not THEN?

'Last photo' always seemed like a red flag to me. For some reason, it was imperative to prove Madeleine was alive and well on May 3rd at around 2.30pm, or that Gerry was demonstrably present then and there.

Where were all the family holiday snaps full stop? Creche, creche, creche... and adults jogging and poncing about playing tennis. You can do that in England! Where are the snaps of small children running in and out of the edge of the sea and laughing and jumping in it with the parents? Where are the ones of children burying their legs and feet in the sand, and building sandcastles on the beach? Where are the shots of family picnics... all of these are normal holiday activities when you have young children... with or without friends together on the same trip. Where are the short walks along the shore or the cliffs with one twin on each back in a Karrimor and Madeleine holding a parent's hand? They are fit young parents and the twins were only 2 years old. Where is any sense of the adults and children even getting to know they are in Portugal? Oh, I forgot... tapas bars and local food when the kids were in bed. That's about it. It was a weird family holiday, even given that the group, all with young children, were staying in a Mark Warner would-be upmarket holiday camp complex, weird even without the loss of Madeleine. Why did the Mccanns not leave the children with their grandparents if they didn't want a family holiday? Family holidays have shedloads of photos to show everyone afterwards... often videos too!
