Shopping the McCann Media Mess

Section:

The latest developments in the Madeleine McCann case have been spun to a media willing to believe utterly preposterous stories suggests Matthew Steeples

First, at the height of the coronavirus lockdown, German criminal Christian Brueckner was plastered all over the media as the ‘new’ likely person responsible for the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Though this may indeed be possible (just as Shergar the racehorse may still be dashing round a track somewhere), the development was anything but ‘new’ as we reported in June. Equally, in the time since, no actual concrete evidence has been produced and thus this ‘solution’ has been anything but proven.

 

Now, this weekend, the MailOnline have reported that “a new witness has come forward to claim that Madeleine McCann is alive and living with a German family on the Algarve.” They do not name the Portuguese woman, but report she saw the by-now teenager in a supermarket just 40 miles from where she disappeared speaking German.

 

Further muddying waters, they claim the witness cannot actually remember when this incident occurred with the unnamed woman stating: “It was three to four years ago, I can’t be sure exactly,” whilst adding: “When I looked at her eyes, I was sure about what I saw.”

 

Firstly, one has to ask why not only has this woman not been actually been named and secondly, why she did not mention this earlier? As has so often occurred in this case, this supposed ‘development’ seems far-fetched, yet it has ludicrously attracted significant amounts of media coverage.

 

Given the combined £2.5 million reward that was originally offered by amongst others Sir Richard Branson and Sir Philip Green, social media users reacted to this unsubstantiated ‘news’ with scepticism with one Twitter user, Andrea Maria Preston, stating:

 

“Someone else who hasn’t tried to claim the reward. All these people who have sightings/concrete evidence etc. yet don’t want the money.”

 

She has a point and what also should be remembered is this: If Madeleine McCann were alive and wandering around shops in Dale Winton’s Supermarket Sweep style fashion, wouldn’t someone else have noticed?

 

Missing Madeleine – Questions STILL without Answers

Many questions about what happened on the evening of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann remain. Some that have been highlighted by the press and discussed online include:

 

  • Why did Kate McCann refuse to answer 48 questions put to her by the Portuguese police?

 

  • Why were certain records of phone calls on the evening of the disappearance “whoosh-clunked” from the memories of the phones of Mr and Mrs McCann and the ‘Tapas 7’?

 

  • Why did a British sniffer dog sense the smell of a corpse in a cupboard in the apartment from which Madeleine McCann disappeared?

 

  • Why did a sniffer dog also supposedly sense the smell of a corpse in a vehicle hired by the couple a month after the disappearance of their daughter?

Madeleine McCann disappeared from an unlocked holiday apartment, 5a Rua Dr Agostinho da Silva, Praia da Luz, Portugal on 3rd May 2007. She was aged just three years old and in spite of British authorities spending over £11.75 million on the search for her to date (with further sums from various other sources), nobody has been able to solve the case.

If Madeleine McCann were alive and wandering around shops in Dale Winton’s ‘Supermarket Sweep’ style fashion, wouldn’t someone else have noticed? The suggestion of the unnamed Portuguese woman – whom could not even remember what year she ‘witnessed’ such occur in – does indeed seem utterly preposterous. One is left asking: “Why do the media continually fall for this kind of nonsense?”

  1. The questions we should be asking is why,

    Why have they received the media coverage they have? As thousands of children go missing every day.

    Why have they received all the funding they have?

    Why haven’t they been arrested for neglect and the other children been removed from their custody?

    What makes the Mc Canns special?

  2. A very good summary of the ridiculous. We all know who is responsible for the absence of Madeleine. You missed out the abundant quantities of blood splattered around and it was not mosquitoes committing suicide. As for Gerry “Ask the dogs” McCann , he looks very like the person the Smiths saw corpse transporting, Seeing the photofit on Crimewatch, and Gerry was a highlight of the programme.
    Most people know “whodun it”.
    When are the two people responsible going to be arrested and charged with murder?
    (Operation Grange is a murder enquiry led by murder squad detectives.)

  3. As soon as it became know that the McCanns had left the 1 year old twins and Madeleine aged 3 home alone while they wined and dined in a restaurant 80 meters or so away out of sight and hearing, it became obvious to me that they were responsible for whatever happened to their daughter. The evidence of the sniffer and blood dogs absolutely confirm that Madeleine was dead before she was reported ‘abducted’. The lies told by Kate McCann concerning the ‘jemmied’ window, the whooshing of the curtain cause by the ‘open’ window through which her daughter was taken – then changing this version of what happened, just compounded the evidence that this was an ‘inside job’ and the McCanns were involved with whatever took place.

  4. I have been studying the case closely since may 3rd 2007 after analyzing the apartment and this new suspect i cannot say what my thoughts at this stage are but what i do believe is this they have there man and i would not like to say on here what i think this monster has done i have passed a lot onto operation grange and urge anyone to come forward if they think or have seensomeone been attacked with christian b contact operationgrange.met,police,uk with anyinformation.
