Brit Cops refuse to rule out possibility girl's remains found in Wynarka could be Madeleine

Met Police have contacted their Australian counterparts after skeletal remains were found by a motorist in a suitcase by the side of a remote highway

British police have refused to rule out the possibility that the decomposed body of a young girl found in Australia could be that of missing Madeleine McCann.

Met Police have contacted their Australian counterparts after skeletal remains were found by a motorist in a suitcase by the side of a remote highway near Wynarka in south Australia earlier this month.

Austalian police say the remains are those of a girl aged between two and four who died in 2007 and had fair hair.

Maddie was three years old when she vanished from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007, prompting speculation the remains could be hers.

Although Australian police have dismissed rumours the body could be Maddie’s, a Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We cannot rule it out.”

The spokesman confirmed that Met officers had been in touch with their Australian counterparts, adding: “We are aware of reports of the remains of a child having been found in South Australia and we have made contact with the Australian authorities.”

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens, leading the enquiry in Australia, said it was ‘pure speculation’ to suggest the bones could be Maddie’s.

The McCann’s spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “We continue to refuse to comment on speculative reports.”
He would not say if former GP Kate and heart doctor Gerry, both 47, of Rothley, Leics, had been told about the body.

Mr Mitchell added: “This is entirely a matter for the Australian Police to resolve. Commissioner Stevens comments speak for themselves.

“Kate and Gerry will certainly not comment on any speculation. The Yard always keep them informed when and if necessary.”

A source close to the couple said: “Kate and Gerry hope that if anything of substance is found linking the body in Australia and Madeleine they will be told straight away

But right now I’m questioning how her body could have got there from Portugal and the clothing doesn’t match.”

The child’s remains and a distinct quilted blanket were found in the suitcase. It is thought the body had been transported from place to place in the large bag.

A motorist found the case beside the Karoonda Highway in Wynarka, east of Adelaide.

Police hope the unusual blanket, depicting pumpkins, sunflowers, camels, dragonflies, stars and colourful musical notes could lead to a major breakthrough.

Several items of soiled clothing including a Dora the Explorer T-shirt were also found in the case.

Maddie was wearing pyjamas, a pink t-shirt with the character Eeyore and white floral-patterned trousers, when she disappeared.

At the time her parents were dining nearby with pals at a tapas restaurant.

Police investigating Maddie’s disappearance have investigated at least two Australian connections in the past.

In August 2009 private eyes hired by the McCanns released an e-fit of a “Victoria Beckham lookalike” they believed may have had information about Maddie.

An agitated woman, speaking with an Australian accent, asked a British tourist outside a bar in Barcelona’s Port Olimpic if he was about to deliver her “new daughter”.

The incident in neighbouring Spain happened just three after Maddie disappeared. Despite a worldwide appeal for information the witness was never found.

At the same time a millionaire Australian widow and her daughter were also linked to the case after their superyacht was spotted in the marina.

Horrified Rhonda Wyllie and Melissa Karlson had no involvement but offered to help cops if needed.

In December last year Met detectives quizzed a convicted British paedophile in a cell in Malta.

Roderick MacDonald, 77 – formerly known as Roderick Robinson – had been in the Algarve when Maddie vanished.

He had previously been jailed in Australia for indecently assaulting an eight-year-old child.

Bones unlikely to be McCann's: police


The remains of a child found dumped in a suitcase in the South Australian bush are highly unlikely to be those of British girl Madeleine McCann, police say.

"There is absolutely no evidence at this point in time to suggest that the child concerned is Madeleine McCann," South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens told reporters.

"We're prepared to consider any possibility but to suggest something like that at this point in time would purely be speculation for the benefit of getting attention."




Three-year-old Madeleine went missing from her holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007.

Some overseas websites have reported on the SA discovery, speculating whether the remains belonged to Madeleine.

SA police believe a fair-haired girl aged between two-and-a-half and four is the murder victim whose remains were found near Wynarka, in the Murray Mallee in the Riverland, earlier this month.

Detective Superintendent Des Bray previously said she could have died up to eight years ago.

When asked about whether the girl could be Western Australian child Lella McDougall, who went missing with her mother Chantelle in 2007, Commissioner Stevens said investigators were focused on South Australia.

"But we would be considering any missing child in terms of the match with what we have in the Riverland," he said.

Det Supt Bray said 410 reports had been made to Crime Stoppers, including 194 since Friday.

"We are extremely grateful for the level of community support we have received, and as a result of that support the investigation continues to progress each day," he said.

So far, 32 children have been excluded as potential victims.

Police on Monday issued a further digital image of part of a distinctive 90cm by 90cm homemade quilt found, along with girls' clothing, with the child's remains.

Daily Mirror: Maddie Hunt: Detectives Probe Body In Suitcase - "British police have refused to rule out the possibility that the decomposed body of a young girl found in Australia could be that of missing Madeleine McCann."

Well I can rule out the possibility - the suitcase doesn't match the blue tennis bag and the blanket isn't pink.

The Daily Star also looks at the "mystery" - "Maddie: Mystery of Body In Case".

What a sad case; I hope the Australian police can solve the mystery of what happened to this little girl and the culprit held responsible.

Well seems to me that the source close to the couple is contradicting The McCann's spokesman (or are they one and the same person?)

The U.S. press is giving this story a lot of ink. One report said it is a distinctive HOMEMADE quilt. While another said it was MADE in N.Y. around 2008.

As Gerry McCann has said, "confusion is good". Well I guess it has been good for their bank balance.

Madeleine McCann: British cops to test missing youngster's DNA with body found in Australia

19:56, 28 July 2015
By Tracey Kandohla


Scotland Yard detectives will either fly to the country to carry out the crucial tests or will wait for samples from a newly-discovered corpse to be sent to them

Madeleine McCann's DNA will be tested against samples from a youngster's body found in a suitcase in Australia.

Scotland Yard detectives will either fly to the country to carry out the crucial tests or will wait for samples from a newly-discovered corpse to be sent to them.

A source close to Maddie’s parents, Kate and Gerry, both 47, said: “They hope that if anything of substance is found linking the body in Australia and Madeleine they will be told straight away.

“DNA testing is likely to be done as a matter of routine as much as to rule it out of the inquiry.

“The Met Police always said they would leave no stone unturned in their investigation.”
Officers assigned to Operation Grange, the multi-million pound investigation into Maddie’s disappearance, refused to comment on her DNA being checked against bones and fabric found.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: “We cannot give a running commentary while our inquiry is on going. We will not discuss any DNA testing.”

Skeletal remains of a blonde girl, believed to be aged two-and-a-half to four years, were found in a suitcase by motorist on a South Australian highway.
Fair-haired Maddie was aged three, nearly four, when she vanished from a Portuguese holiday apartment in May 2007.

Cops in Oz say the victim could have died eight years ago.

Maddie’s DNA profile is made up of 19 different components.

Fifty per cent of her genetic make-up is shared with each of her parents.

Kate and Gerry have both given DNA samples to help forensic scientists in the search for their daughter.

I thought all the DNA samples from Madeleine were corrupted/destroyed/ or lost. Another game to be played, another begging bowl to appear?

The Met said Madeline had been "totally excluded" as a potential victim.

Det Supt Des Bray said: "I can confirm that Madeleine McCann has been totally excluded as a potential victim and UK police have been advised."

I have to wonder if it was the British police who "totally excluded" Madeleine as being the victim in Australia because they know more than they are willing to share and, at this stage, just can't prove it.

Det Supt Des Bray is South Australia's Police Detective Superintendent, so he's the guy who has been quoted in the press as saying the body is not Madeleine.

I know Det. Supt. Des Bray is Australian but what I meant was that the British Police would KNOW that Madeleine can be "totally excluded" as the victim in this particular case.....all in my opinion of course.

Notice how Natasha Donn, columnist for the Portugal Resident, refers to the Mirror "Reading between the lines, however, this (meaning Mirror conflicting reports) this could simply be another case of headline-hogging journalese.

There is an article in the Daily Star ("Maddie still alive say Kate and Gerry") in which a 'friend from Rothley' is quoted as saying, "They kept a dignified silence throughout" (in reference to the investigation in Australia).

"Dignified"???.....Kate and Gerry McCann??? - there's an oxymoron for you!!!

I'd like to know Dr. Amaral's thoughts when he heard about the recent speculation in the press about the poor child found in Australia.
