DNA clears crucial suspect in the Maddie Case

Euclides already deceased motivated the reopening of the Maddie case process.

By Marisa Rodrigues

It has [finally] collapsed the investigation line that had Euclides Monteiro as a suspect, which also led to the reopening of the “Madeleine McCann process”. The Judiciary police (PJ) bet everything in the abduction of child at the hands of a sexual predator that allegedly attacked British children in the Algarve. However, DNA tests ruled out from the investigation the already deceased man.

At the site of one of the alleged sex abuses a sample of semen was collected, which the PJ already know that it does not belong to the former Ocean Club resort worker. Euclides' DNA was not found, in any case, at the Praia da Luz apartment from where the child disappeared seven years ago.

The thesis of the sexual predator began to be 'drawn' when the PJ inspectors grouped five cases of alleged sex abuse involving British children on holiday in the Algarve between 2004 and 2006, a year before the disappearance. Euclides matched the description made by some of the victims and had already served time for theft using the same method of intrusion into houses - without forced entry. Additionally, he worked at the Ocean Club, and also, in the same day of the disappearance he used his mobile phone in that area. He was the man that fitted the profile of the suspect.

Positive that the correspondence of the cases with an identical “modus operandi allowed for the admission of the possibility that the crimes had been committed by the same author and that this one could be related with Madeleine's disappearance, the PJ asked, in 2013, for the Public Ministry of Portimão to reopen the case.

The detectives knew that in one of the alleged sex abuse cases, there was a semen sample. They compared it with a biological vestige that had been collected previously from Euclides, which was in the possession of the Portuguese National Institute of Forensic Medicine. The man, it should be recalled, died in a tractor accident, in 2009, and was subject to an autopsy as the law dictates. The tests, however, ruled him out from the sex abuse and from the Ocean Club apartment.

The investigations remains open, at the hands of the Porto PJ, no further developments are known.

The Judiciary Police are going to question about ten people, all at the request of the Scotland Yard, within the scope of the English investigation. In the list, are Ocean Club former employees. All of them are going to be called for the first time. Some as witnesses and other as arguidos [formal suspects], who will join the already four other suspects that were questioned back in July. The questionings should be concluded before the end of the current month.

Thanks, kitti.

Euclides was used as a key to reopen the process.
There's an upside and a downside to that.
The downside being that he couldn't defend himself from beyond the grave and his widow got a lot of unnecessary hassle.
Let's hope that now he has served his purpose he can rest in peace - and that she and the rest of the family can get on with their lives without further tabloid crap hanging over their heads.

As the article states, this was the PJ's favoured suspect and the reason for them re-opening the case in Portugal

But, if anyone feared a dead patsy was being set up to be framed to take the blame, I hope this goes some way to alleviating those fears. Suspects are, quite rightly, being investigated and, one by one, cleared and that's how it should be. It would have been worse, I think, for his family if the speculation had continued without an investigation. He might always have been seen as the one that got away with it, but not now. Well, that's good, I think.
