Posted by portugalpress on March 25, 2014 Madeleine case in a right old muddle


The gist of the latest statement from the Met police in London in their investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann sounded remarkably similar to what has long been in the public domain, but the so-called ‘quality’ press, along with the tabloids, churned it out as if it were a hot “new lead” and even “a breakthrough”. The statement appealed for further information on “a potential linked series of twelve crimes which occurred between 2004 and 2010, mostly in low season, whereby a male intruder gained access to mainly holiday villas occupied by UK families on holiday in the Western Algarve”. In four of the cases, the intruder is alleged to have sexually assaulted five white girls, aged between seven and 10, in their beds. Senior ex-police officers, led by former detective inspector Dave Edgar and hired by parents Kate and Gerry, looked into sexual attacks on at least five English girls between 2004 and 2007. Their findings were described in some detail by the News of the World in May 2009. Kate McCann also wrote about the assaults in her book published in May 2012: “One of the most concerning and upsetting pieces of information to emerge quite early was the record of sexual crimes against children in the Algarve. This discovery made me feel physically sick. I read of five cases of British children on holiday being sexually abused in their beds while their parents slept in another room. In three further incidents, children encountered an intruder in their bedrooms, who was presumably disturbed before he had the chance to carry out an assault.” Yet even The Times last week felt moved to report that “A sex attacker who preyed on young British girls holidaying with their families on the Algarve is a key suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann seven years ago, police said today.” Other “key” suspects over the past few months have ranged from Gypsies, Germans and East Europeans to burglars and British cleaners, but according to the latest Met statement, witnesses described the supposedly lone sex attacker as “having dark (as in tanned skin) with short dark unkempt hair”. The Met did not identify the latest “key” suspect, but a headline in the Guardian the day after the Met appeal read: “Madeleine McCann suspect died in 2009.” It called this a “revelation” gleaned from “a source close to Portuguese investigators.” We had read it all before, of course. Early last November, the Daily Mail, among many other papers, named and carried a photograph of a 40-year-old black African, saying the Portuguese police believed he may have killed Madeleine two years before he died in a tractor accident. This disclosure came soon after all the BBC Crimewatch fuss over new e-fit images that turn out not be new at all, depicting a man who certainly did not look like a black African. The Guardian’s source said the dead man had been at the centre of Portuguese police inquiries since they reopened the case last October, but they had not drawn any definite conclusions about him. He “could” have been involved in the five assaults on white girls - and even the disappearance of Madeleine - but it was no more than a “possibility”, the source said. The Guardian also ran a story last week headlined: “Madeleine McCann: a breakthrough that could be devastating.” It did not mean devastating to the widow of the smeared African, a man with no record of child molestation and no opportunity to defend himself. The Guardian explained that by identifying a series of sex attacks, the Met Police had made a breakthrough in its investigation, but that based on similar cases, “it could mean an end to hopes that Madeleine is alive”. It is a hope many have long abandoned. Even Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, the senior British investigating officer, has conceded she may have died in the apartment. Portuguese detectives and prosecutors, as well as specialist British investigators and a British police dog handler, came to that conclusion years ago. The former lead detective in the original Portugal investigation, Gonçalo Amaral, reiterated in a recent interview his firm belief that Madeleine died in the apartment the same day or night she disappeared. He claimed his investigation was marred by high-level political involvement, which left DNA samples untested and key witnesses overlooked. Amaral and his many supporters completely reject the notion that Madeleine was abducted - and, indeed, there is no hard evidence to support this theory. In using the term ‘abduction’ or ‘kidnapping’ of Madeleine McCann, the mainstream media rarely qualify this assertion with words such as ‘alleged’, ‘possible’ or ‘suspected’. Nor were such words used when Redwood said last week: “The Metropolitan Police Service continues to offer a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person(s) responsible for the abduction of Madeleine McCann from Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3 May 2007.” Twenty thousand pounds! It’s a far cry from the £2.5 million reward offered within days of Madeleine’s disappearance, and a drop in the ocean compared to the millions Kate and Gerry have since received in donations on top of the amount the Met has spent so far in its fruitless search.

In using the term ‘abduction’ or ‘kidnapping’ of Madeleine McCann, the mainstream media rarely qualify this assertion with words such as ‘alleged’, ‘possible’ or ‘suspected’.

Even in SY's remit, they are to investigate as if the "abduction" had occurred in England. There is no other avenue to pursue, even though there is absolutely not one hint of evidence that an abduction ever occurred. It is completely wrong for the media to continue to use the word "abduction" without a qualifier, so why then are they doing it?

GM: Where... where, you know... where is... where... where is... where is... where is the child? We're looking for that evidence. Where is the child? What other explanation can explain how she's not here.
-------------------------------------------------------

So Andy, what OTHER 'explanations' can you, and your solely dedicated team of 37 full time 'maddie cops', think of, that can 'explain' how she's (Madeleine) not here?

Even the father of the 'missing' child is asking YOU that!

Over to you, DCI Redwood!

SY's remit is to investigate the "abduction" and that is what continues to baffle me. No evidence of an abduction!! It seems to me the remit should have been more "open" to the facts contained in the Portuguese police files, namely Madeleine was dead when her little body was removed from the apartment. "Abduction" to me means taking a live person against their will. Madeleine was dead when her body disappeared hence she was not abducted.

Exactly, the SY investigation was flawed from day one. SY should have first ruled out the most obvious suspects, or at least let them prove via polygraphs that they were being truthful about the case. To not do so, and to blindly throw taxpayer money into an investigation for which there is zero evidence pointing to only theory being investigated is pointless.

As to Gerry referring to Madeleine as "the child" he also referred to her as "a little girl." It was not Madeleine or even his daughter who had gone missing, but a little girl. This is what guilty people do to try to distance themselves from the crime, they use words that are less personal.

That distancing themselves started on the night of may 3rd 2007.




'a girl has been abducted'.....mrs Fenn said .....She found it strange that Gerry when said that a girl had been abducted, he did not mention that it was his daughter and that he did not mention any other scenarios.
