Talk about clutching at straws !!!

................................

A BRITON who allegedly claimed that he killed Madeleine McCann before knifing a woman is being investigated by police.


Shane Leighton, 22, is being held in a Portuguese prison, accused of stabbing Clara Corrigan 17 times last May.

During the attack, Clara, 39, alleges the trainee chef boasted that he killed three year-old Madeleine, who vanished on May 3, 2007, from Praia da Luz on the Algarve.

When he allegedly attacked Clara, Leighton was living with his grandparents, Sylvia and Barry Leighton, in Albuefeira, also on the Algarve.

Detectives have been checking his alibi, that he was a 15-year-old schoolboy in Britain when Madeleine vanished.

Officers have interviewed his father and spoken to the head teacher of his school in Lancing, near Worthing, West Sussex.



They sought school records to see if he was absent or on holiday.

As part of the inquiry they would also have sought his passport records. Sylvia Leighton said:

“We are aware that Scotland Yard officers have been looking into these allegations because of what the woman said.

“They are doing their job but we don’t think there is anything in this.

Shane wasn’t even in Portugal at the time Madeleine went missing.

There is no way he had anything to do with it.”

Clara, a single mother of three, from Liverpool, was staying in Albufeira last spring when she met Leighton.

She told police she fell asleep at his grandparents’ house but woke with him on top of her.

She said: “He shouted ‘I killed Madeleine McCann and I am going to kill you’.”

She suffered 17 knife wounds to her buttocks and lower back.
