Profiles different from each other and from those above:
28 17 of which were found in the apartment.

* Bl and Dl have a different sequence from B and D.

CONCLUSIONS


1st- The macro- and microscopic analysis of 257 hairs revealed 245 human and 12 non-humano.

2nd- With respect to autosomic STRs the genetic profiles of the following analysed samples matched with the reference sample indicated::

- hair root CEnv 7-51 recovered in the apartment (entrance hall-Env.7) matched with Gerald Mccann, father of the victim.

- hair root PVT07 recovered in the vehicle (floor in front of rear seat Env.4) match with Robert James Queriol Eveleigh Murat.

3rd- With respect to autosomic STRs the female genetic profile identified from hair root C742-05 recovered in the vehicle(floor in front of the front seat- Env 3) did not match any profile from the reference samples.

4th- With respect to autosomic STRs the male genetic profile identified from the spot on the cloth fragment (bedspread of the bed next to window in children's bedroom- Env 5) did not match any profile from the reference samples.

5th- In the samples from apartment 5-A, several mitochondrial DNA profiles were found:

- Profile identified by letter "C", present in 53 samples, was identical to that of Kate Healy, mother of the victim, meaning those samples were from her or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "N", present in 24 samples, was identical to that of Gerald Mccann, father of the victim, meaning those samples were from him or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "G", present in 1 samples, was identical to that of Matthew David Oldfield, meaning that sample was from him or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "I", present in 1 samples, was identical to that of David Anthony Payne, meaning that sample was from him or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "O", present in 2 samples, was identical to that of Russell James O'Brien, meaning those samples were from him or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "L", present in the spot on the bedspread of the bed next to the window and in seven hairs, meaning that all these samples came from the same person or from someone having the same maternal bloodline, did not match any of the reference samples.

- Profiles identified by letters "B", "D", "F", "J" and "Q" are different from the above, and from each other, and are distinct from reference samples.

6th- In the samples analysed from Residencia Liliana and the vehicle, several mitochondrial DNA profiles were found:

- Profile identified by letter "M", present in 48 samples (35 from Residencia Liliana and 13 from the vehicle), was identical to that of Robert James Queriol Eveleigh Murat meaning those samples were from him or from someone having the same maternal bloodline.

- Profile identified by letter "K", present in 14 samples (1 from Residencia Liliana and 13 from the vehicle), meaning that all these samples came from the same person or from someone having the same maternal bloodline, did not match any of the reference samples.

- One of the 13 samples from the vehicle in letter "K" - hair root C742-05 (floor in front of the front seat - Env 3) showed a female DNA genetic profile.

7th- The remaining 28 samples analysed, of which 17 were recovered from the apartment, showed mitochondrial DNA from different from each other, and distinct from those above.

8th- Of the 245 hairs analysed, no results were obtained from 52.

Reply to Queries

- We inform you that none of the samples received by this institute were designated as supposedly belonging to the missing girl and we therefore, cannot reply to this query.


- Samples were studied – hair and a piece of cloth – nuclear DNA profiles only being obtained from 4 samples, which upon comparison with the DNA profiles of Kate and Gerry, could not belong to the girl.

- The samples were then studied using mitochondrial DNA analysis, the same was done for the other samples, giving the results in accordance with our report of 9th July Nº 2007/000226 LX-BC.

- As requested in point 5, it was determined that the profile obtained by the British lab could belong to a son/daughter of the McCanns.


- The comparison of the profiles obtained in autossomic STR from Kate and Gerry McCann with the profile obtained was carried out.

(Note: There is no date for this correspondence, neither is there a reference as to whom it is addressed).


a. List of samples collected from 5A and examined and report of events and evidence collected

On May 3rd 2007, under unknown circumstances, a child – Madeleine Beth McCann – went missing from the apartment she was sharing with her parents, brother and sister, at the resort “Ocean Club”, located in Praia da Luz, Lagos.

At a first stage of the investigation, confronted with the disappearance, while considering that the child could have walked out of the apartment, on her own, and could have got lost in the area, the abduction theory was the one which achieved more consistency, partly due to the parents suspicions. After police intervention, the searches already started furthered and progressively enlarged to gradually farther distant area, with the involvement of search dog teams and numerous human resources.

During that stage of the investigation, the apartment was searched by members of the Crime Scene Team from the Laboratorio de Policia Cientifica [Police Forensic Science Laboratory] of the Portuguese Criminal Police, and samples were collected. Those samples, namely hair and a sperm stain, were sent to the National Institute of Legal Medicine (INML)to be analysed taking into account the DNA profile of the missing child-that had been provided-, as well as one of her parents and the ones of friends who belonged to a common group, and who went to the above mentioned tourist resort following previous arrangements among them.

Following the forensic tests carried out at INML, some DNA were obtained which linked profiles of some people within the group of friends, to the profiles of the child’s parents and even to the profiles of other people at the site. Until this moment, unidentified mitochondrial DNA profiles were also obtained. On the other hand, it was possible to define the autosomic STR profile of the sperm stain detected on the bedspread of one of the beds in the bedroom from where the child went missing. It has been already checked that there is no matching between the obtained genetic profile and the profile of the various samples of reference, which include the ones of the parents, friends, and others. Therefore, that DNA profile is now being forwarded to you, so that it can be inserted in your database, with the request that you check if it matches any of the genetic profiles from 3 British citizens who had stayed in the apartment in question, before the McCanns started to use that apartment on May 3rd, 2007.

Thus, and considering the submitted samples, which preliminary report has already been forwarded to us, and in order to provide a better outline and classification, we hereby indicate the data and the circumstances of that sample collection. Furthermore, we also enclose some queries which answers we would like you to include in your final report. We are looking forward to receiving it and we appreciate it could be submitted to us as soon as possible.

Date: 31 October 2007


To: The Director of the Police Scientific Laboratory


From: Portimao PJ

Subject: Request for Examinations


Having noted the existence of two errors in the content of Fax nº 000731 of 26-09-2007, I ask you to take into consideration the following modifications:


In point one where it says examination nº 200707356-CR/L it should say examination nº 200707116-CR/L and in delivery note nº 189/2007/CR/L it should read “Praia” instead of “Paria”.


In point two, where it says “Examine the samples, namely blood, semen or hair. The results of these examinations will be compared with other forensics”. It should say “Examine the biological samples and their respective DNA profiles”.


We also request that the DNA profiles identified during the forensic tests requested by fax nº 000731 of 26-09-2007 are compared with the DNA profile of Madeleine McCann and the DNA profiles sent to the LPC by the Delegation of the INML within the process 2007/000226/LX-DC in letter 034308 of 4th October 2007.

Subject: Request for forensic analysis

Within the context of the current investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine MCCann on 3rd May 2007.

As it is necessary for the abovementioned investigation and is of a VERY URGENT nature, I request that you proceed to analyse, as quickly as possible, the appropriate analyses of the six Crystal Tabs containing eventualfibres collected by Local Crime Scene Officers (examination 200711732-CR/L and delivery guide 304B/2007 – CR/L) on 1st August 2007 from a wall of apartment 5 A of the OC, these are preserved in the physical area of this laboratory (2007 11800-F1).

It is a case of searching and identifying the eventual fibres and comparing them to the fibres from a pair of pyjamas similar to those the girl was wearing when she disappeared.


For this purpose I am sending the pyjamas and request that the examination be carried out as quickly as possible and that subsequently the pyjamas be returned to this department in order to send them to theforensic laboratory in the UK.

From Goncalo Amaral

To: INML

Date: 4th September 2007

The present request deals with the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann on 3rd May 2007.

Within the scope of this request we have asked the INML to carry out various analyses as your letter 2007000226 LX – BC reports.


The results were delivered to us in a letter dated 9th July 2007 ref 13.079, with a cover letter dated 11th July 2007.

Upon reading the report we observed that several DNA profiles are defined but which have not been identified.


The apartment from which the samples were collected for analysis is occupied by families from the UK.

The UK police and legal authorities have informed us about the existence of a database for the register of DNA profiles.

As the objective is to proceed to identify the profiles defined in your analyses we request that you send us the list of unidentified profiles.

This request has the objective of seeking their eventual identification through the UK legal authorities.

Information


With the aim of providing the Police Scientific Laboratory with the DNA profile of Madeleine McCann, in order to be able to carry out comparisons with DNA that have been identified in the examinations requested, within the sphere of collaboration that exists between the PJ and the UK authorities, I telephoned Mr José de Freitas, a New Scotland Yard Officer, whom I asked to email me the child’s DNA profile which was determined in analyses carried out in a UKlaboratory, previously referred to in a letter that is part of this process.

In reply to my request, Mr José de Freitas sent me the email, I am immediately sending a copy to the Director of the Scientific Police Laboratory, Sra Saudade Nunes.

Letter to Dr. Gonçalo Amaral from the PT Genetic & Biological Forensic Service

I attach a response to your questions.

Warmest compliments,
Director of the Genetic & Biological Forensic Service,
Dr. Rosa Maria Espinheira


RESPONSE TO QUESTIONS

• None of the samples received by this institute were designated as relating to the missing child, so an answer to your question cannot be provided.
• Samples were investigated – hairs and cloth, and DNA profiles were obtained in only four cases and when compared with the DNA of Gerald and Kate McCann it was found that they cannot be related to the child.
• The traces were then studied for mitochondrial DNA as were all the references with results in accordance with our conclusions in the report dated July 9, 2007 – Proc 2007/000226/LX-BC.
•Regarding your request no. 5, determine if the “profile” obtained by the British laboratory may pertain to a child of the McCann couple.
• We carried out a profile comparison obtained from the autosomal STRs of Kate McCann and Gerald McCann and of the profile sent us.
• The probability of the McCann couple being the biological parents of the female individual in that test is 99,9828 %.
