I have written a number of articles about the death of Madeleine McCann. I made the decision to withdraw these articles as I wanted to spend more time to research the subject. Circumstantial evidence is often used by police to sway juries to convict a defendant. However one will need much more to undermine a ten year campaign to exonerate the McCanns of any wrongdoing.
Prior to my considered thesis it’s important to note that the McCanns have used a significant proportion of the millions that they have raised to ‘find’ Madeleine to silence individuals who have pursued the truth.
One of the more disturbing aspects of the staged abduction is the statement by one of the so-called Tapas 7 Jane Tanner, who reported that she saw a strange man carrying a child from the direction of the McCann’s apartment. At the time Gerry McCann was apparently chatting to Jeremy Wilkins, however neither McCann nor Wilkins saw Tanner in the locus or during the timeline of their chat. Tanner was lying to support the abduction thesis. The Portuguese police’s investigation was subverted by a rogue witness.
Tanner’ statement was deemed to be a fabrication due to a major inconsistency in her narrative. She claimed she saw the man from five metres away. Both McCanns stated on a televised broadcast that Tanner had informed them that she had seen the ‘suspect’ from 50 metres away. The roadway was poorly lit yet Tanner claimed the man was wearing footwear that made him ‘fleet of foot.’ She was quite the liar. Was she hoping for a payoff from the British media as the last person to have seen Madeline alive? Tanner should have been charged with perverting the course of justice. Did she conspire with either of the McCanns to wrongfoot the police? The police who were increasingly looking at the McCanns as suspects?
Tanner’s evidence was so evidently a mendacious and flawed construct that the police did not issue a photo-fit. However Gordon Brown then became involved. After a call to the McCanns, in which they impressed upon him that the Portuguese team were suppressing details of a ‘suspect’, pressure was applied to the investigators to release the McCann/Tanner abduction squirrel.
Is a conspiracy to fabricate a suspect indicative of guilt? Can this conspiracy be dismissed as circumstantial?
Richard D Hall has produced a number of documentaries on Madeleine’s death. He makes the following points:
1. Madeline McCann died on or near 29th April 2007.
2. Madeline McCann’s corpse was concealed and then disposed of.
3. A hoaxed abduction was orchestrated on the 3rd May 2007.
4. UK security agencies assisted in the cover-up of her death.
Mr. Hall looks at four scenarios that could have had a causal link to her death:
A. An overdose of sedatives or other drugs.
B. A freak accident when the McCanns were present or neglectfully absent.
C. An unprovoked assault.
D. Death at the hands of a paedophile that she had been passed to.
The Portuguese Police report of 10th September 2007 asserted:
“There is strong evidence that the crime scene was altered, and some furniture was moved around. Those changes are indications that the abduction was a stage-managed simulation.”
The following in italics is from a statement made by Kate McCann to the Policia Judiciaria (PJ):
” She now presumes that they were under the effect of some sedative drug, that a presumed abductor administered to the three children in order to abduct Madeleine, a situation that Kate refers to being possible.”
Kate McCann called the PJ liaison officer to request a toxicology investigation of the twins for signs of sedation. Gerry McCann, when apprised of his wife’s call, called the PJ to cancel the request.
However the McCanns did agree to a toxicology test in the UK, five months after their stage-managed simulation. The results showed no indications of sedation. Were the twins actually present in the room when the staged simulation was in full cry? If they were not sedated they would have woken up. They had evidently been moved to another apartment prior to the ‘discovery.’
It only takes 200 hours for all traces of a sedative to no longer be discernible in the body. There was no evidence of sedation by the phantom abductor or the McCanns.
Scenario B is given credence by the PJ report which states:
” The minor Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5A at the Ocean Club resort in Praia Da Luz on the night of 3rd May, 2007. At this moment there seems to be no strong indications that the child’s death was other than the result of a tragic accident.”
Both the cadaver dog and the bloodhound identified an area behind the couch where Madeleine could have died. If this had been a tragic accident, why did the McCanns not contact the emergency services?
Were they out on ‘the lash’ having left Madeleine and the twins unattended, and having returned to their holiday rental in the wee small hours, had rigor mortis already set in? The McCanns seemed to be inconvenienced by their children. They placed them in a day creche during the day and abandoned them every evening.
However there is a more sinister possibility that cannot be discounted. A picture of Madeleine in full make up might be dismissed as a playful diversion common in girls of her age. Or at least it would be had it not been for the presence of Dr. David Payne. When it was disclosed in the local media that Payne was one of the Tapas 7, Doctor Katerina Gaspar, who with her husband had previously been on vacation with the McCanns and the Paynes, contacted Leicestershire police and made the following statement:
” I was sitting between Gerry (McCann) and Dave (Payne) and I think both were talking about Madeleine. I can’t remember the conversation in its entirety, but they seemed to be discussing a particular scenario. I remember Dave saying to Gerry something ‘she’ meaning Madeleine ‘would do this’
While he mentioned the word ‘this’ Dave was doing the action of sucking one of his fingers, pushing it in and out of his mouth, while with his other hand he was doing a circle around his nipple, with a circular movement around his clothes. This was done in a provocative way. There seemed to an explicit insinuation about what he was saying and doing. I remember being shocked by that.”
Her husband Sergio confirmed that he had not only seen Payne inquire whether Madeleine at two years old had been groomed to give blow jobs, but that McCann had been making similar inquiries about Payne’s daughter. As the men had established a routine where they would bathe all the children, Katerina and Sergio kept a close eye on McCann when their daughter was being bathed.
Leicestershire Police, who claimed to be assisting PJ, held on to their statements for six months, only passing them to PJ when Gonçalo Amaral had been removed by UK government pressure from the investigation. It was a line of inquiry that Amaral would have pursued. Had he pursued this line of inquiry it might have led to Clement Freud and his attacks on young girls. Is that why the security services were keen to keep a lid on her death? Could one of their assets be in any way involved in Madeleine’s death?
At the outset of this piece I stated my terms of reference and a desire to only engage in speculation where necessary.
All we know for certain is that Madeleine is dead and that her corpse has been moved from its initial hiding place to another location at the direction of the security services. Her corpse will never be found.
As for the McCanns, would you let Gerry McCann anywhere near your children? What was Kate McCann thinking of when making up her child in a sexualised manner? How can fathers of young children be allowed to openly discuss grooming their children to perform oral sex? Why did Leicestershire police not interview McCann and Payne?
Why have Leicestershire Social Services not pursued the McCanns for neglect? Surely they should have a duty of care to the twins and a commitment to safeguard them from a father who thinks nothing of grooming an infant for sex.
Was makeup applied to Madeleine as a precursor to paedophile activity? Is there a causal link from this activity to her demise?
The Portuguese knew from the outset that Madeleine was dead and that the McCanns had staged a simulated abduction. The McCanns have failed to silence Gonçalo Amaral who had their measure right from the start. Kate McCann’s claim of working with corpses to explain the cadaver dog detecting death was disingenuous in the extreme. She is a liar of the first ordure.
Read this article while it remains published. Take a screen shot. Carter-Ruck might soon demand that it’s removed. As we saw with Mr. Bennet, the McCanns will stop at nothing to subvert the truth.
