Why didn't the McCanns sue the Telegraph about this article, or at least demand a retraction? Better still, why didn't they sue the French press who I know for a fact, never swallowed their version of events.
Why just pick on the Express ???

Madeleine McCann died from an overdose of sleeping tablets, reports in a French newspaper claimed yesterday.

In full: The Madeleine McCann case
Guilhem Battut, an investigative reporter for the French tabloid France Soir, said Portuguese police had given prosecutors a file detailing how they thought Madeleine had died.


Battut - an experienced journalist who has worked on a number of major inquiries - claims police believe that evidence found in the McCanns' hire car will "prove that the little girl had ingested medicines, without doubt sleeping pills, in large quantities".

A source at the newspaper claimed: "We are not simply repeating rumours carried in other papers. This is not a theory, but a fact contained in hard evidence in the hands of the Portuguese authorities.

"It is all very well putting theories and opinions forward, but in the end this case will be decided on evidence. As journalists, we have been trying to establish what evidence is available."

DNA evidence which has reportedly been found in the hire car includes hair, blood and bodily fluids which match Madeleine's.

Police are said to want to examine the vehicle again. It is currently being kept in a safe place by the family who are considering having their own tests carried out on it as they strive to prove their innocence.

Portuguese police are said to be drawing up a list of 40 new questions that they want to put to Mrs McCann. But British forensic experts expressed doubts over the claim.

Alan Baker, of the independent forensic science organisation Bericon, said: "These samples are likely to be far from ideal. If it is just a smear or dried deposit you could detect the drug but not how much."

Last night friends of the family dismissed the latest speculation. Gerry McCann reportedly told a friend: "There are large craters in every one of these theories, in these ludicrous accusations.'

"As far as Kate and I are concerned there is no evidence to suggest that Madeleine is dead. We are 100 per cent together on this, not one grain of suspicion about each other."

I dont understand how parents when told that there is evidence to suggest their child died and they themselves thinking along the lines of abductors and paedophiles wouldnt want to know how the police came across this evidence. Thats fishy to me.

Look what has occurred re Anna Nicole Smith. Everyone knew there was something fishy about her death, and even her death was found to be an overdose. Now, what is interesting is that three people have been charged! What a performance they all gave too. Looks familiar. Well, we can only wait and see what happens re Madeleine. Justice will prevail for her and hope it will be soon.

I hope this isnt another case of the OJ Simpson affair where everyone knew it was OJ but got away with it.

Irresponsible? That’s rich, Gerry

Post  pm on Wed 18 Mar - 10:17

MADELEINE McCann’s father Gerry blasted the media coverage of his daughter’s disappearance when he attended a Parliamentary committee last week.

by GAIL EDGAR (Sunday Life, Belfast) Sunday, 15 March 2009

Mr McCann says his family “have been the focus of some of the most sensationalist, untruthful, irresponsible and damaging reporting in the history of the press”.

And he criticised the fact that the coverage focused on what he called the ‘Kate and Gerry show’ rather than the search for Madeleine.

But let’s look at the facts. Yes, the McCanns were defamed by some newspapers — and received huge payments for the Madeleine Fund in return. But it’s also true that they courted the media and by doing so succeeded in raising more awareness of their little girl than the parents of any other missing child in history.

While my heart goes out to them for the loss of little Madeleine — a loss that they will never get over — it astounds me that Gerry can talk about the irresponsibility of others without any hint of irony.

Of course the media focused on Kate and Gerry.

Madeleine had vanished — but her parents were speaking at press conferences, appealing for information about their little girl, meeting the Pope, and going jogging.

And for a time they were official arguidos. To ignore this part of the story would have been irresponsible. As for Madeleine becoming a commodity?

Newspapers highlight issues that are in the public interest, often exposing wrongdoing, often changing people’s lives for the better. They are a vital part of democracy.

But they don’t do it for free — they’re a business after all.

And anyone who doesn’t understand that is just being naive.

We’re all guilty of bad judgement at times. And Gerry of all people should understand that.

Wouldn't any parent who has lost a child = one that has gone missing, want as much press coverage, plus the media coverage! Unfortunately for the McCanns, the media have intelligence and could see right through them and their lies. Never before has so much coverage been given on a missing child, particularly coverage that has shown up the parents, and their friends for what they are. Not too many people have been fooled in and out of the media. But, someone belonging to the group will one day talk, and hope that is sooner than later.
