Portugalresident/Madeleine mystery: British police “lift the curtains”

Madeleine mystery: British police “lift the curtains”


New revelations in the media over the weekend point to British police now pinning their hopes on curtains from the bedroom from which Madeleine McCann went missing seven years ago.

Describing the story as a “breakthrough”, British tabloid the Daily Mirror claims detectives believe the fabric “may hold DNA” which will identify Madeleine’s abductor.

The Mirror says Scotland Yard hopes to run new tests on the curtains, using techniques not available when the little girl first disappeared.

The team, headed by DCI Andy Redwood, is urgently waiting for the green-light from Portugal’s public ministry, as the curtains - says the Mirror - have been kept “sealed in an evidence file” since 2007.

This latest story follows a rash of new reports over the last couple of weeks, the first of which praised the incoming new prosecutor Inês Faria Sequeira for being a “high-flyer” “utterly determined” to finally crack the mystery.

Nonetheless, ‘cracks’ have appeared in British news stories before - and this may well be yet another incident of this kind of reporting.

In Portugal, for example, national tabloid Correio da Manhã writes that the curtains have already been “exhaustively” analysed by Portuguese experts, and revealed nothing.

In their story on Monday, entitled "British want to lift the curtain", CM confirms that British police believe the curtains may still hold traces of suspect DNA.

But elsewhere, websites dedicated to the analysis of police files claim the curtains were never collected, tested or indeed even kept.

Thus it remains to be seen whether this is simply another story to join the long line of apparent "Madeleine mystery non-sequiturs".

Certainly, the British press is buzzing this morning, with the Daily Express following the Mirror and affirming that the curtains “might provide vital clues”.

Also on the list of evidence held in Portugal which British police would like re-examined are 30 strands of hair originally taken from the McCanns’ rented Ocean Club apartment in Praia da Luz.

------------------------------------------

What happens if, IF, the 'curtain' fabric 'identifies' ONLY the DNA of Ge££y and Hate Mccann?

Will THEY then be 'identified' as the MAIN 'suspects' in Madeleine's er, 'abduction'?

Sadly, imo, I don't believe they will. They stayed in the apartment so their DNA is bound to be all over the curtains.

What it may do is knock a big hole in their 'abduction' scenario if no one else's DNA is discovered...

they seem to be making a big thing of it again .which will probably come to nothing...........

but i wonder if the strands of hair... if belonging to maddie with the new technology could show sedatives had been used.....

or body fluids found on the curtains ...

No DNA or fingerprints on the window sill but DNA on the curtain...did he/she use the curtain to pull themselves up and out off the window without even touching the window ...perhaps it was 'bendyman'...or women .

Seems SY are flying all round the edges and avoiding the middle I.e. The curtains which attracted the dogs...concentrating on where Madeleine supposedly slept and steering clear off the other rooms where cadaver scent was detected.

I'm just hoping that they are eliminating everything else before homing in on what is left, if that makes sense. I don't believe we are been told everything and nor should we be.

They sure are kitti but I am still glass half full on this.

I mentioned earlier in the thread that the curtains being tested are more likely to be from the lounge. The MCF have done some good research on this for anyone who is a member there. Stating it is the bedroom curtains is pink spin imo.

Didn't Kate say that she washed the curtains because the twins had dirtied them, or is that another fórum myth?

Just found this on the mcCann files,

It has also been alleged that curtains behind the sofa had traces of blood which were found to have been washed when they were taken away and analysed.


Who the Hell goes on holiday and washes curtains??

And if they did wash the curtains and bleach the floor and on the night of the 3rd May go down the tapas bar and drink 7 or was it 8/9 bottles of wine then may i suggest it quite likely that Madeleine was dead before that day and all the timeline checks that night were a bunch of crap.
