When is this Circus going to stop?



Maybe this 'investigative journalist' should read the DVD process of the Public Ministry to the investigation of Madeleine McCann disappearance or the very conflicting statements made by the McCanns and the Tapas group, before publishing such a flawed and absurd article.

MADELEINE: I KNOW HOW SHE WAS TAKEN


THEORY: Investigator Donal MacIntyre says he knows how Madeleine was abducted

Sunday September 20,2009
By Donal MacIntyre

MADELEINE McCann was abducted by at least two kidnappers who must have carried out several dry runs in the days leading up to her disappearance.

After spending a week on the ground investigating the case and the methods used by the kidnappers, I can only conclude that they must have entered the apartment to carry out a rehearsal, because they were working to an incred­ibly tight schedule.

The three-minute time frame they allowed themselves left no margin for error.

But even though they did their homework with meticulous care, they still came within seconds of capture.

I believe the focus of the investigation for the private investigators hired by Madeleine’s parents should be on a breakdown of who was in and around the Mark Warner Ocean Club in Praia da Luz throughout their holiday.

It is more than probable key witnesses would have seen the kidnappers in the days and nights leading up to the abduction on May 3, 2007.


SOFT TARGET: MacIntyre believes Madeleiene was passed through this apartment window

Such was the narrow window of opportunity, only agile, sharp-witted people well-practised in breaking and entering properties could have pulled this off.

Over the past week I have conducted a cold case review of most of the available evidence relating to the abduction and had lengthy discussions with numerous Portuguese sources who cannot be identified.

Crucial to unravelling the whole case is establishing what precisely took place from 8pm to 10.15pm on the night Madeleine vanished.

In my view too little attention has been paid to what I believe was a key sighting.

A dark-haired woman was ­observed standing near a street light at a road junction that overlooks apartment 5A. What was she doing in the ­eerily quiet area, which is not near a bus stop, taxi rank, cafes or shops?

She was seen looking at the apartment as the late evening gloom descended.

Was she also watching to see the movements of Kate and Gerry McCann and their holiday friends, the so-called Tapas Seven? I think so.

The same witness who saw the ­mystery woman also saw a gold or brown Nissan car driving erratically past the woman.

Despite appeals neither the woman nor the driver of the car has come forward.

Was this Nissan the getaway car and was its driver conducting a dry run at this very time? Again, I think so.

Although we do not, sadly, have a minute-by-minute breakdown of the events that took place, this is the scenario that I believe unfolded.


MACARBE(sic) ATTRACTION: The Praia da Luz resort

Having settled Madeleine, then three, and their two-year- old twins, Sean and Amelie, Gerry and Kate, from Rothley, Leicestershire, have a glass of wine before heading off to the tapas bar, a minute’s walk away, to join their friends Jane Tanner and her partner Russell O’Brien, Rachel and Mathew Oldfield, David and Fiona Payne and Diane Webster.

At about 9pm Gerry leaves the table and walks over to the apartment to check on the twins and Madeleine.

He enters the apartment and then goes to the toilet. He checks on his children and ­savours a proud father’s moment as he stands by the doorway looking into the back bedroom where they are all soundly asleep.

The twins are in cots and Madeleine in bed, holding her favourite toy, Cuddle Cat. Gerry spends up to 10 minutes in the five-room apartment and will only later reflect that he felt there was someone else there at the same time.

For the kidnap to have taken place I believe Gerry’s gut instinct was sound.

So we must assume that a few minutes before Gerry arrived, the abductor walked along the public road beside the apartment, opened the gate, walked up 10 steps to the patio and entered through the open patio doors.

At this stage he or she is a heartbeat away from being caught. But where could the abductor have hidden? Gerry walked through the front room, used the bathroom and looked in on the children – but did he check ­anywhere else?

My view is that the abductor was probably in the children’s bedroom, possibly behind the door or crouching behind furniture.

As Gerry strolls out of the patio doors, closing but not locking them, he leaves through the same small gate facing the road where the abductor has entered minutes before.

Just outside, he meets television producer Jes Wilkins on the way back to the tapas bar. There is not another soul on the street.

Back inside the apartment the abductor must be breathing a sigh of relief as Gerry leaves, then realises his exit route is blocked and plan B has to be put into operation.

For this, help is essential. The abductor inside the apartment passes Madeleine – probably put to sleep with chloroform – through the open window into the accomplice’s arms.

In the distance, the voices of Gerry McCann and Jes Wilkins waft through the air.

What trauma would Madeleine suffer if, terrified and forcibly kept silent, she hears Dad’s voice as she is being bundled into the hands of dangerous strangers? At the same time – about 9.10pm – and unnoticed by Wilkins and Gerry, Jane Tanner observes them chatting.

The kidnapper holding Madeleine retreats to the adjacent car park before heading on to the same footpath where, a short distance downhill, Gerry and Wilkins are talking.

The accomplice makes his way out of the window and into the darkness.

The kidnappers think they have got away with it, but they are on the brink of being caught.

Despite hearing the voices of Madeleine’s father a short distance away, the kidnapper holding the girl plans to cross the road junction just above them.

As he hits the footpath, he sees both men chatting and Jane Tanner heading his way – three potential witnesses to the abduction, including the father of the child.

Why choose such a potentially disastrous course? My ­belief is that he had to make a rendezvous with the getaway driver.

The seven seconds he took to cross the road were either well-planned, foolhardy or a sign of breathtaking confidence. In any case, the kidnapper never faltered and was never seen again.

Jane Tanner says he was carrying a child. She believes it was Madeleine and her theory is supported by the McCann investigators.

The timing of the statements from the key witnesses suggests that there was a maximum of three to five minutes for the abduction to be executed.

In such circumstances only good planning and co-ordination could make this possible. It would be an extraordinary effort, needing an astonishing degree of luck, if this had been done on an opportunistic basis.

The clean execution of the kidnap, without a hint of a DNA trace or any useable evidence, means it was highly professional and planned with precision.

Such precision is the hallmark of fixated, obsessive sexual predators. There were 20 known paedophiles living on the Algarve at the time including one with a flat near the McCanns’ apartment but all have been eliminated as possible perpetrators.

However, the area must be a magnet for sex offenders. It has a creche, school and nursery. Add a transient population of young holidaymakers and you have a lot of attractions for sexual predators.

With its road access the McCann apartment was the most vulnerable in the complex and it is easy to see why a paedophile would make it a target.

The McCanns’ decision, formed by the semi-secure nature of the holiday complex, to use a check-in system for their children rather than have babysitters allowed the abductors to strike. In hindsight, that unfortunate decision left their children vulnerable to an ­abductor.

Last week I walked unchallenged on to the property in the company of another journalist. We were both unsuitably dressed and surrounded by children and parents. We had a drink and left. Two hours later I returned and again was not challenged.

Today there is more lighting around the complex but little else has changed. Until the kidnappers are caught, the unspoken fear will remain that Praia da Luz is a sunny place for shady people.

All that remains visible of the Madeleine McCann campaign there is a touching shrine in the beautiful church on the sea front.

Pray For Me, the heart-shaped poster pleads. Below it, 10 electric candles flicker in her memory. Many more will be lit before this mystery is solved.

Lawyers representing Kate and Gerry McCann have demanded that a website claiming their daughter was not abducted should be taken down.

The Madeleine Foundation claims Madeleine is dead and her parents bear some responsibility for her death.

The McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: “Kate and Gerry have made it clear they will not dignify the actions of the so-called Madeleine Foundation with any comment.”

  1. I don't know Joanna.

    I feel like a foreigner in my own country!

    I can't understand how we have come to this pass in the UK where a journalist like Donal Mactintyre (who in fairness has done a lot in exposing evil) can even contemplate publishing such a farrago. Not that I am against him publishing this freely - it's just we now know that NOBODY in the UK media is going to pick this apart, point out all the absurdities.

    Let's just say that Macintyre puts forward NO EVIDENCE for his thesis. It is all pure fantastical speculation...

    A crack surveillance and abduction team. Whom it appears don't even come armed with a crowbar...how do they know the patio doors are going to be left unlocked??? Do they not have mobile phones? WHy not just phone Super-Abductor no. 2 when you hear Gerry's voice and say "Drive the car 20 metres over this way so I won't be observed by the father"?

    It is pure McCannot-believe-it's-not-Clarence.

  3. Sherlock Holmes has cracked the case....

    "MADELEINE McCann was abducted by at least two kidnappers"

    It took them 2 years to figure out that the one kidnapper theory had to be changed



    "...they must have entered the apartment to carry out a rehearsal..."

    And when was that?Let me guess, the night Mrs Fenn heard Madeleine cry for over an hour?

    "...only agile, sharp-witted people well-practised in breaking and entering properties could have pulled this off."

    There was no break in.But that is not important, right?


    "...numerous Portuguese sources who cannot be identified..."

    MacIntyre, Clarence Mitchell is not portuguese...


    "A dark-haired woman was ­observed standing near a street light..."

    The Barcelona/Australia babe was seen in Portugal too?Someone please arrest that womasn!How dare she?


    "...that the abductor was probably in the children’s bedroom, possibly behind the door or crouching behind furniture"

    An anoretic abductor...


    "There were 20 known paedophiles living on the Algarve at the time including one with a flat near the McCanns’ apartment..."

    Is he talking about David Payne?



    "However, the area must be a magnet for sex offenders. It has a creche, school and nursery..."

    Nah,too easy for such a talented abductor.


    "...the unspoken fear will remain that Praia da Luz is a sunny place for shady people."
    Let me think:mccanns and friends, clarence mitchell,british media...Yeah, you're right.

  4. What a load of crap

    One interesting point which hadn't occurred to me before, though. This mystery abductor, who was supposedly hiding inside the flat when Gerry checked it, and had to exit via a window, then walks across the end of the road in full view of Gerry, who is standing talking a few yards away ?

    Yeah, right.

  5. This article is surely a mickey-take - aimed squarely at the McCanns. I cannot for the life of me believe this piece of obvious nonsense would win the Clarry stamp of approval.

    It reads so much as a fantastical Boy's Own cops and robbers story - tight schedules, dry rehearals, three-minute time frames, and little Madeleine carried away yards from where her dad's voice 'wafted' through the PDL air.

    IMO this article can only be read as a thinly disguised satire on the sheer absurdity of the McCanns'abduction claptrap. There were moments reading this when I actually laughed aloud.

    The dry run by the getaway driver in the Nissan car? That's pure, good old-fashioned Ealing Comedy.

    And to finish off with a reference to The Madeleine Foundation? An invite to Sunday Express readers to read some salient facts?

    Thankyou, Donal.

  6. So now we should be looking for TWO kidnappers - what a load of rubbish - why doesn't this investigative reporter examine the known facts.

  7. Thanks for clearing that up Mr MacIntyre - we can all stop blogging now and rest easy in our beds now that we know the truth from the horse's mouth! So what happened to the fingerprints of the supposed abductor? There were only Kate Healy's fingerprints found? Did he have time to wipe those off as well as administering chloroform to Maddie, and possibly the twins too, because they didn't wake up?
    But then that rag you work for has done a complete turn around on the Madeleine abduction since it was sued - strange that!

  9. I always thought that a change of governments in England and Portugal may be the beginning of the end of the circus, but now I'm not so sure. I'm not an expert in Portuguese politics, but it seems to me that the Portuguese people have little to choose from. I feel that whomever is elected PS or PSD, the subservience towards the English will continue. Gordon Brown will likely lose the next election, but I wonder if this will change how the media, and people in authority behave. Will the new people in power allow the police to investigate freely and will they accept their conclusions whatever they may be? It would be nice if they changed Britain's libel laws. The circus can end but it will require a slip up on the part of the couple and the action of people of courage.
    Another way to end it is to stop the money that is going to the McCann's fraudulent fund. In my opinion the people who write these articles and the detectives that work for the McCanns wouldn't be putting out this rubbish if they were not paid handsomely from this so called fund.

    I glossed over this article since I couldn't bear the faulty logic.
    This statement angered me:
    "Until the kidnappers are caught, the unspoken fear will remain that Praia da Luz is a sunny place for shady people."

    I wish Portuguese politicians, lawyers and judges would care more about the reputation of Portugal than about having their pockets lined with money. Truly sad.

    Pure fantasy.

    For one thing how could anyone hid in that little apartment in the childrens bedroom without being seen, and how did they get out of the window in 3 minutes?

    The bloke is an idiot. Sadly people will believe this rubbish.

  19. OH, WHAT A SURPRISE!!!! Just as Amaral's book was about to be published in English and he was planning to attend a meeting in the U.K, a court injunction has ordered him to stop publishing his book and shut up; just as the McCanns lawyers are trying to shut down The Madeleine Foundation website, dispose of all its literature and force its founders to keep quiet; just at the moment more people might be questioning the abduction theory because of the publicity surrounding these two events - SOMEBODY WRITES AN ARTICLE IN A NEWSPAPER WHICH IS A MCCANN PUPPET ABOUT HOW MADELEINE WAS ABDUCTED!!! Predictable, really, wasn't it?!

  20. "I can only conclude that they must have entered the apartment to carry out a rehearsal, because they were working to an incred­ibly tight schedule." - This is to explain why Madeleine and/or the twins were crying the night before.

    "A dark-haired woman was ­observed standing near a street light at a road junction that overlooks apartment 5A. What was she doing in the ­eerily quiet area, which is not near a bus stop, taxi rank, cafes or shops?" - Er, waiting for a lift?

    "She was seen looking at the apartment as the late evening gloom descended" - Isn't it normal to look around, while you're waiting for a lift?

    "The same witness who saw the ­mystery woman also saw a gold or brown Nissan car driving erratically past the woman....
    Was this Nissan the getaway car and was its driver conducting a dry run at this very time?" - Did he or she need to practise driving erratically? Do child abductors have to drive erratically? Wouldn't that attract attention?

    "My view is that the abductor was probably in the children’s bedroom, possibly behind the door or crouching behind furniture" - I think it was established there was no room behind the door. Where else? Behind the cots? A bedside table? Was this abductor a midget?

    "the abductor.. realises his exit route is blocked and plan B has to be put into operation.For this, help is essential. The abductor inside the apartment passes Madeleine – probably put to sleep with chloroform – through the open window into the accomplice’s arms" - But how would the accomplice know the plan was changed and the abductor was going to pass Madeleine through the window instead of carrying her out of the patio doors? And doesn't chloroform smell? No smell was noticed by GM or after Madeleine was found missing.

    "What trauma would Madeleine suffer if, terrified and forcibly kept silent, she hears Dad’s voice as she is being bundled into the hands of dangerous strangers?" - I thought you said she had been put to sleep with chloroform?

    "The clean execution of the kidnap, without a hint of a DNA trace or any useable evidence, means it was highly professional and planned with precision." - Actually, I think it means it didn't happen, IMO of course.

    "Last week I walked unchallenged on to the property in the company of another journalist. We were both unsuitably dressed and surrounded by children and parents. We had a drink and left. Two hours later I returned and again was not challenged." - Unsuitably dressed? The mind boggles! This is a holiday resort, not a prison camp.

    I wonder who paid this man to write this? Just wondering...

  23. If the McCanns did pay for this, I'd say they were well and truly 'done'. I have rarely read such nonsense and I'm very surprised at this particular journalist.

    The abductor entered not once, but at least twice..? He was hiding behind the bedroom door or a piece of furniture...? Was he a flat dwarf..? Where's the 'evidence' for the chloroform or the 'passing throught the window'..? And all the time, and despite 'sensing someone there', neither the McCanns or their friends noticed anything wrong..?

    Sorry, no. Absolute trollocks imo. Won't do Donal's career any good in the long run either although with a bit of fine tuning he may have a future in comedy writing.

  24. Why are you all so skeptic and distrustful about the new theory?

    Everything is possible in Rothley, PdL, London, Lisbon and for Oprah too.

    Think about the possibility that Elvis and Micheal Jackson even the Queen Mum are still alive although you are almost sure they are pretty dead and buried.

  25. If Donald Duck were to read the files as suggested....he would see the "abductors" did their dry run many times on the Tuesday 1st May. They did not need to worry about being in a hurry, the twins were alone along with maddie. ...A simple trip to PDL and a chat with Mrs Fenn will confirm this.I am waiting soon for one of them to have been a Pakistani,how would we know this, because he wore a stocking on his face but on top of the stocking he was wearing a turban...doh...

  35. Dona, I can make an easy conclusions from your theory and the facts reported in the PJ files: Two kidnapers yah?... Finger prints on the window from Kate and she alone with David Payne in the flat, sometime on the fatidic late day or early night- The first ABDUCTOR was KATE and the second David Payne. She tried to pass Madeleine trough the window, but Madeleine was quite heavy, this is why Kate put her hands on the window to get some suport. David Payne was outside the window and he carried Madeleine away into the goldish Nissan parked outside. The darked woman, was the driver of the Nissan and the Tapas 10. She was standing outside near the flat watching the neighbours and making sure that nobody saw the two abductors. She quicly drive away the Nissan into Spain Border, 3 hours before Kate ring the bell and call the GNR. # hours is ennough time to cross the border and passMadeleine to Somebody wich she knows well and her mum knows well, this is why, THE MCCANN's ARE SURE THAT SHE IS ALIVE, HAPPY and on THE CARE OF SOMEBODY WICH LOVES HER VERY MUCH. In the middle time, her parents and friends will set up a FUND. THe Fund is a very important issue because they need alots of money to keep the story alive in the Media and to silence Tapas 10 with a gold life.
    NOW, everything becomes clear in my mine and the GIGSAW is ending up. THIS IS A SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT STEP IN THE INVESTIGATION. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, in Portugal must re-open the investigation and pull the string at the point that was tied up- BRING ALL TAPAS 9 TO A COURT IN PORTUGAL TO ANSWER AND EXPLAIN THE EVIDENCES AND INCONSISTENCES IN THE INVESTIGATION. WIth a Properly investigation, they will tell who is Tapas 10, which rule played Brian Kennedy on the game and where is Madeleine.

  36. How can we call for a public enquiry?

    A full public inquiry is needed on so many levels, especially the involvement of the British Government in the criminal offences of covering up admitted neglect, not just by the Mccanns but by all of the Tapas lot. Leaving children who were too sick to go to the Kids Club in the day, but ok to leave to be sick alone, they could have died choking on their own vomit. Something I have first hand knowledge of, my friends boyfriend died in this very same way, choked on his vomit aged 19.

    Commenting on the launch of legal action today against the Government for its alleged role in extraordinary rendition and torture, Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Huhne said:

    "No official should be above the law. It is vital that the Government publishes without delay their policy and legal advice on these issues."

    The very same statement should be put regarding the Mccann case.

    Regarding Public enquiries -

    Pressure groups and opposition political parties are likely to ask for public inquiries for all manner of issues. The government of the day typically only accedes to a fraction of these requests. Inquiries are requested not only for the genuine public good, but also in attempt to make the government look bad – either by allowing the inquiry to go ahead and uncover mistakes by the government or by making the government refuse and leave the impression that they have something to hide.

    How can we ask in light of these book bannings and attempts to quash our freedom of thought, opinion, expression, speech just to name a few.

    I call on everyone work a way for us all to get a public enquiry, or at least ask in a very public way for one.

    I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks???

  40. Taking a look around the blogs and fora late last night and this morning the latest Express fantasy is the no.1 subject everywhere including here, which is I suspect the only reason why it was published. Nothing is too ridiculous as long as it can capture attention and stifle debate on serious issues. McCanns continue to control the agenda.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh come on, people. The Express is taking the proverbial, and not for the first time. They have the McCanns in their sights, and this article is simply showing how ludicrous the abduction theory is. Just a few examples:

    1."Gerry spends up to 10 minutes in the five-room apartment..."

    But Kate and Gerry have made it clear they will not dignify the actions of the so-called Madeleine Foundation with any comment.”

    And there´s plenty more. I am 99% certain this article is trying to show how well nigh impossible an abduction would have been. How else do you demonstrate it if you have been gagged?

  44. I think, Amaral, Tonny Benneth and we, the Public, must contact DONE BROWN ( the D'Avinci code Writer ) asking him to go trough the Pj files, the bloger feelings over two years, the Mccann's behaviour and do a deep and proprly investigation to write his next bestseller book: "WHAT HAPPENED TO MADELEINE MCCANN".
    The little girl need somebody with prestige and courage to crack down the mistery. All the children will thank DONE BROWN for his contribution to achieve and preserve justice for all the children- a Basic Human right.

    I wonder, if the Mccann's team will try to silence and buy the opinion of DONE BROWN.

  45. Attention, FROM MCCANN FILES:

    Matching Jeremy Statment and annother witness statment:

    THE DARKED HAIR WOMAN STANDING NEAR MCCANN'S FLAT, WAS JANE TANNER wearing her purple top. The driver of the gold Nissan was a British Man.

    Humm! Which cars the Mccann's friends rented in the Algarve at the time? Who they meet there? The driver can be the Tapas 10 or one of Tapas 9.

  47. Firstly I must say that I am appalled that the information and facts contained in official records by the Portuguese authority which investigated the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from the unlocked apartment where her parents Kate and Gerry McCann left their three young children night after night, are not given, by the press in the United Kingdom the light of day!

    In their place we are fed tale after tale of abduction.
    Whilst no one can categorically state that there was not an ‘abduction’ the information gathered by the official investigating authority, before it was suddenly and mysteriously shelved, whilst not ruling out absolutely, points also to other more plausible possibilities as to what happened to this child, yet the press in the UK in my opinion appear to have been gagged in this respect.

    FRONT PAGE coverage is given to sensational headline grabbing ‘theories’ by any Tom Dick or Harry who cares to put pen to paper, provided that their theory is one relating to an ABDUCTOR. It matters not a jot if it is not at the very least fact based, as long as it states that Madeleine was taken by a monster.

  48. Headlines such as - ‘I know how Madeleine disappeared’ - ‘I know where Madeleine is’ ‘Madeleine will be home by Christmas,’ have dominated here in the UK. Usually the ‘story’ which accompanies the headline is one concocted by whichever private investigators are in the McCann employ at the time of going to press. The McCann’s change PI’s more often than we have our cars serviced. Five companies I believe in 2 years! Millions of GBP spent on this ‘search’ and all they have to show for it are sensational headlines! I do not believe that despite the monies spent that the private investigations, carried out on behalf of the McCann’s have brought any new or relevant information to the table. The McCann’s appear no closer now than they were when they embarked on employing what I consider incompetent private investigating companies. If they had new information of value the case would have been re-opened.
    If any of the first four detective agencies employed were performing well, I can only imagine that they would still be in the employ of the McCann’s. If these agencies were dismissed as they were too much of an expense, I’m sure the public would be horrified to hear this as the monies donated were to be spent in this regard.

  49. Our press here in the UK I feel have failed Madeleine Beth McCann.
    This one sided, often inaccurate, sensational reporting does not aid the chance of Madeleine being found, but rather hinders it enormously!

    Perhaps if the press had had the guts to at least offer honest accounts detailing facts rather than the nonsense which they have chosen to, things may just have been different!
    What is more appalling is that the parents of this child as far as one can tell, do nothing to stop this type of reporting. It would appear as long as ‘abduction’ is mentioned, even if the story/theory which is proffered is the most unlikely and outrageous, way off the mark and does not consider the police findings, in any way whatsoever, it is deemed ‘acceptable for public consumption!

  50. Heaven help Madeleine - What chance does she have when people who should know better, people who should care more, behave in this way?
    Conclusions reached by roving reporters such as Donal McIntyre are given full coverage, yet the conclusions reached by the official police authority in Portugal which investigated the disappearance of this child are not are not reported at all, that is, NOT in the U.K.
    We are to be kept in the dark as to anything other than an abduction theory. Not provided with true honest and fair reporting, which would allow the reader to form a balanced opinion, get a clearer perspective.
    The conclusion by the McCann private detective Dave Edgar, that he may still be sitting on his backside in ten years time as he doesn’t feel that he will be able to find the lair in the Portuguese wilderness where he claimed last week Madeleine was being held is considered worthy of full coverage.
    Will the Fund monies donated by the public cover this man’s fees for the next ten years?
    Is there anyone out in this wilderness at this moment searching for Madeleine?

  51. If Edgar has got it wrong or has been misquoted, why are the McCann’s not re-tracting this story, putting the public straight, suing those who printed it, as surely if everyone thinks the child is in a lair in Portugal they will, all around the world, have stopped looking at every little blonde girl to see if she could be Madeleine McCann?
    Without question, for Madeleine, this has to be addressed. Have the public to believe that Dave has the case solved, and that there is no need for anyone to be on the look- out for this child?

    Does he mean that him and his mate purposedly dressed weardly, in order to look like evil-doers, paedophiles? And how does one have to dress to raise suspicion, what is that unsuitable dressing like, please??? Did they have a card pinned on their backs warning "look-out! I'm an evil abductor!"!!!

    I've been to the newspaper site and watched the video, I wish he would have had a go at trying and showing on video, how his theory works!

    The latest in abductions theories from Donal McIntyre would be laughable if it was not for the fact that a little girl is missing without trace. The “search” for her became a circus from the early days and is now in my opinion nothing short of farcical!
    McIntyre states that he knows how

    Madeleine was abducted :

    ‘MADELEINE McCann was abducted by at least two kidnappers who must have carried out several dry runs in the days leading up to her disappearance.

    After spending a week on the ground investigating the case and the methods used by the kidnappers, I can only conclude that they must have entered the apartment to carry out a rehearsal, because they were working to an incred¬ibly tight schedule.’

    Donal McIntyre believes that not only did SEVERAL dry runs take place but that the kidnapperS (we are now back to ‘plural’) carried out a rehearsal from INSIDE the apartment.
    Let’s take this a step at a time.

  54. How and when did the rehearsal take place?

    If during daytime when the family were not ‘at home’ how did the kidnappers access the apartment?

    McCann’s have stated that ALL doors were locked when the family were out for the day. It was ONLY when they were at home or when the children were left on their own that the patio door was left unlocked.

    I would rule out a daytime rehearsal, unless of course Donal
    is suggesting:
    it was someone who worked at the O.C. who had a key to the apartment who entered during the day and ‘practised’ this dry run.

    The key would naturally have to be one to the FRONT door as the patio door when locked cannot be opened from outside!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Night time?

    If the kidnappers in Donal’s version of events ‘rehearsed’ in the evening, when the McCann’s were not at home – Which night would this rehearsal have taken place?

    We know on the first night of this holiday the families dined at the Millennium Restaurant, so night one, Saturday, is ruled out.
    We know from the McCann’s statements that they locked the patio door for the first few nights, two three nights?

    They have however been very vague as to which night they changed their routine from using the front locked door to unlocked patio door.

    I find this incredible as if you changed routine on such an important issue as your children’s welfare, there must have been very good reason, and you would remember exactly why and when you did so.

    ReplyDelete
  56. As the first night, the Saturday of their arrival cannot be included, let’s assume that they used the front door for three nights. Sunday night being, ‘night 2,’ ‘night, 3’ Monday and ‘night 4,’ Tuesday. (Gerry we know entered by front door on the night Madeleine disappeared. Gerry said Kate did also. They later changed this statement to Kate having used the patio door.)

    If these abductors were watching the apartment for several days or nights, ‘the early days’ as Donal has described, they, the abductors would have noted that the McCann children were locked in the apartment both doors, patio and front being secured on these nights.

    So their rehearsal and planning could not have been based around gaining entry from an ‘UNLOCKED PATIO DOOR’

    They could not have anticipated that the McCann’s would change their routine, leaving a door ‘open’ for them!

  57. If as I believe, Donal is suggesting and leading us to believe that the person who carried out this rehearsal did so the evening before Madeleine disappeared, night 5, Wednesday, which of course would tie in nicely with the ‘crying incident’ (we know the McCann’s have suggested this is why Madeleine cried – because someone horrid man was in apartment and woke her up, it’s crucial that they have this link to account for the children crying – it couldn’t possibly be because she was alone and scared) AND if this night was the first that the patio door was left unlocked, how could these abductors have planned this beforehand, they would not know that on this occasion the door would be left unlocked?

  59. Or, if the intruder was a ‘possible’ OC employee why enter by the patio door when he/she possibly had a key to enter by the FRONT door?

    Why would he/she exit by a window, either carrying Madeleine, or alone after having passed Madeleine to an accomplice, when he/she simply could go out the front door or the patio door?

    If they had meticulously planned this, they would not choose to exit by a window. They would know that the tapas group stood at these windows of an evening all to-ing and fro-ing. It was at this side of the house that any intruder would most likely be seen, as not only were the McCann friends coming and going from this side of the building, other residents would be doing likewise.

    This is the main entrance area for these apartments, the car park was situated here also.
    Surely if there were multiple abductors/lookouts, one would have alerted the other as to when the ‘coast was clear?’ Surely they would not have allowed one of their own to parade along the street in full view of Gerry McCann and Jez? They would have seen that Jez was walking in the area also.

    If they had stalked and meticulously prepared for this abduction to take place they would have known at which times, Tanner and the others would be on the street.

  60. If one of them was in the apartment when Gerry arrived he/she must have entered at a time when some members of the McCann party had still to make their way to the restaurant. That is not meticulous planning. Oldfield was listening at the bedroom window at just about 9pm, Gerry stated on Oprah that they were ALL in the tapas as 9:00 and then he went on his check.
    If these abductors were only going to allow themselves such a tight margin of 3-5 minutes, why did they not strike at a time when they knew they had a lesser chance of being caught, at a time when the ‘look-out’ could see that the group were ALL in the restaurant?
    Professional criminals, paedophiles or otherwise do NOT take these risks when they can carry-out their evil unhindered. Why would they have made it all so difficult for themselves?

    ~Why would they not have concealed Madeleine in any way – the abductor wandered willy nilly down the street.

  61. Donal states:

    ‘But even though they did their homework with meticulous care, they still came within seconds of capture.’

    What utter nonsense!

    Donal continues:

    ‘I believe the focus of the investigation for the private investigators hired by Madeleine’s parents should be on a breakdown of who was in and around the Mark Warner Ocean Club in Praia da Luz throughout their holiday.

    Does Donal not realise that he is stating the obvious and that this is exactly what the Portuguese police have already done.
    ‘It is more than probable key witnesses would have seen the kidnappers in the days and nights leading up to the abduction on May 3, 2007.’
    Only if they behaved so stupidly on the days and nights prior to the disappearance as they did on the 3rd May, by allowing themselves to be seen!

    ‘Such was the narrow window of opportunity, only agile, sharp-witted people well-practised in breaking and entering properties could have pulled this off.’
    What was sharp-witted about walking down the street in full view of anyone who may have happened to pass, carrying a child in pyjamas, not concealed in any way, and carrying her in a most uncomfortable looking manner which could only attract attention?

  62. What was sharp-witted about one abductor passing the child out of a bedroom window to an accomplice and then climbing out this way thereafter when simply to use any of the two doors would have been sensible.

    Even if seen leaving by the front door, passers- by may not have thought anything of it. But passing a child out of a window and then climbing out afterwards would surely have aroused suspicion.

    Agile?

    You don’t have to be agile to walk through a doorway.
    Well practised in breaking and entering?

    They didn’t have to be. They entered by the unlocked patio door. No breaking-in necessary!

    And let us not forget Donal, you have said they rehearsed this from inside the apartment.

    If they had had to ‘break-in’ for the rehearsal, this would have been noticed surely by the McCann’s and the ‘break-in’ reported to Management of Mark Warner?

    Yes Donal, I have to agree with you, but I would extend the time a little start a bit earlier than 8p.m.

    That ever important reconstruction of the nights events which the McCann’s and their friends refused to take part when requested to do so by Portuguese police would have gone a long way to discovering what happened to the child.

  64. Donal tells us :-

    ‘A dark-haired woman was observed standing near a street light at a road junction that overlooks apartment 5A. What was she doing in the ¬eerily quiet area, which is not near a bus stop, taxi rank, cafes or shops?

    She was seen looking at the apartment as the late evening gloom descended.

    Was she also watching to see the movements of Kate and Gerry McCann and their holiday friends, the so-called Tapas Seven? I think so.

    The same witness who saw the ¬mystery woman also saw a gold or brown Nissan car driving erratically past the woman.

    Despite appeals neither the woman nor the driver of the car has come forward.

    Was this Nissan the getaway car and was its driver conducting a dry run at this very time? Again, I think so.’

    Could it be Donal that this woman was standing at that location waiting on a friend?

    Could she have stepped outside to have a cigarette? A bit of fresh air?

  65. What Donal does not take into consideration, is that many small towns villages on the continent and Mediterranean countries are what we in the UK might consider eerie simply due to it being quiet. It is not unusual for locals to stand in the darkness to wait on someone. It is not unusual for areas like this to be poorly lit. And it most certainly is not unusual for there not to be a bus stop, cafe or taxi rank other than in a main area/town square. Many times, when visiting friends and family in the med late at night people appear out of the darkness walking home, or stand in the darkness, the coolness of the night talking to others. It is a perfectly normal practice.

    Nothing strange or sinister about it at all! A cultural difference!

    As for taking taxis, you will probably find as I do that it in general it is holidaymakers who take a taxi, not locals from small villages and towns!

    Donal clearly does not understand he is not talking about a busy city street in the UK or elsewhere.

  66. Donal asks:

    ‘Was she also watching to see the movements of Kate and Gerry McCann and their holiday friends, the so-called Tapas Seven?

    ---
    I don’t think so! I think Donal has let his imagination carry him off in wild directions when there are simple explanations.

    When Donal asks ‘was she ALSO watching’ is his meaning that someone else was watching at the same time? Or, does he mean that she was standing at the said location for more than ONE reason, one being to watch the McCann’s?

    He continues:


    ‘The same witness who saw the ¬mystery woman also saw a gold or brown Nissan car driving erratically past the woman.’
    ---

    I’m sure in Donal’s travels around the globe he has witnessed the erratic driving in Europe. My family tell me when I am there that I drive like the locals! Fast cars driving off erratically are all par for the course.
    Would an abductor draw attention in this way? I see he (abductor) chose a colour of car to match his trousers!

    Donal, unsurprisingly omits to tell us on which night his ‘secret witness,’ saw this lady and the fast car!

    Has he told the Portuguese police of this new witness, perhaps it would help re-open the investigation?

    Perhaps the guy in the fast car was the dark haired woman's 'blind date,' as he approached, not liking the look of the woman, he took off at speed!

  67. In McCann Files:
    "Exclusive: Who was the woman outside Maddie's flat? Sunday Express"

    "A WOMAN was seen acting suspiciously outside Kate and Gerry McCann's apartment just an hour before their daughter Madeleine was abducted.

    The slim, Portuguese-looking woman in a plum-coloured top and white skirt with long, dark, swept-back hair acted furtively when she was spotted at 8pm on May 3 in 2007 near the Mark Warner Ocean Club complex."

    Bingo! That's Jane Tanner alright!
    Jez Wilkins mentioned seing a woman of the McCann group of friends earlier that night, dark-haird and wearing somehting purple, the only other dark-haired woman in the group is Rachel Oldfield, but I don't think she left the table to do any checking, she was not comfortable with the dark deserted streets, so she left it to the husband.
    Tanner could indeed pass for portuguese, she's not a "british rose", I would say she looks welsh or southern european, with her long dark straight hair. Yeah, it could very well have been her on the street that night!

  68. Donal then reveals:


    ‘The twins are in cots and Madeleine in bed, holding her favourite toy, Cuddle Cat. Gerry spends up to 10 minutes in the five-room apartment and will only later reflect that he felt there was someone else there at the same time.

    For the kidnap to have taken place I believe Gerry’s gut instinct was sound.

    So we must assume that a few minutes before Gerry arrived, the abductor walked along the public road beside the apartment, opened the gate, walked up 10 steps to the patio and entered through the open patio doors.’

    ----

    Has Donal I wonder conversed with the McCann’s or read the police files, I think not!

    Gerry said he was only in the apartment a matter of a couple of minutes – NOT ten!

    If Gerry was in the apartment for 10 minutes that would take us to at least 9:15. Bear in mind the abductor would not make his move until Gerry left the apartment.

    Do we take it that at 9:15 the abductor on hearing Gerry leave, comes out from his hiding place, administers chloroform to Madeleine, and then passes her through the bedroom window to a waiting accomplice? Has the accomplice just been standing there all of this time?

    The abductor on the inside would, at this point, have been in the apartment for no less than 15- 20 minutes, not the 3-5 minutes as Donal previously suggested. He is contradicting himself.

  69. If Gerry was in the apartment for ten minutes, what was he doing all of this time? And how was he then on the street in time to speak to Jez before Tanner arrived and spotted them?

    Gerry also said that Madeleine’s soft toy and blanket were up at her head, he did not say she was holding it. In fact in one statement it is said that the toy and blanket were lying on the pillow were they always were placed at night.

    Just minutes before Gerry arrived we are to believe that the intruder according to Donal McIntyre, let himself in through the patio door. Not only did Oldfield miss this, but so did Jez who was walking around. They also missed the accomplices!

    Taking into account that the abductors had planned this meticulously, and are sharp-witted, they would know it was time for a McCann check of the children?

    I see Donal also refers to the OPEN patio doors? I believe they were not open. Closed but not secured. He has not got this right either.

  71. It is considered by Donal :-

    ‘For the kidnap to have taken place I believe Gerry’s gut instinct was sound.’

    ----

    Gerry’s instinct was NOT sound!

    Had it been, Gerry knowing that the bedroom door was more open than when he had left earlier that evening, knowing also that he had left his children in an unlocked apartment, would have searched the apartment to discover the reason for the door being more open.

    Why did he not satisfy his instinct and check the place out for an intruder? The children were sleeping the twins could not get out of their cots, Madeleine in the exact position which Gerry had left her earlier that night. If the door was more open, someone had to have been in that apartment at some point, and maybe still was, yet Gerry did not check it out, nor did he keep HIS children safe by remaining with them, or at the very least locking the patio door?

    Gerry’s instinct was to head back to the tapas restaurant, but not before stopping to chat with a friend.

    If Donal means with hindsight Gerry thinks there might have been someone in the apartment that is quite a different matter.

  72. Another of Donal's views:

    ‘At this stage he or she (abductor) is a heartbeat away from being caught. But where could the abductor have hidden? Gerry walked through the front room, used the bathroom and looked in on the children – but did he check ¬anywhere else?

    My view is that the abductor was probably in the children’s bedroom, possibly behind the door or crouching behind furniture.’

    ---
    I see Donal omits to tell us which door Gerry McCann entered by.

    This is always skimmed over in any McCann made report or any report involving the abduction theory.

    We do know however that Gerry entered the apartment by the front door.

    How can Donal McIntyre speak of meticulous planning and ‘homework’ being done, when the whole abduction theory which he has presented is full of holes, flaws, inaccuracies and involves bungling abductors, who he would wish us to believe were meticulous professionals!

    We know that it was impossible for an abductor to have been concealed behind the bedroom door. Did he squeeze into a wardrobe, as there was no other furniture in the children’s room?

    For ten minutes this intruder was in his hiding place while Gerry did what exactly?

  74. More from McCann Files:

    The british lady who witnessed the woman said:
    ..."I turned right and could see quite clearly she was looking at Apartment 5A.

    "As I approached another junction a small, brown car, with just one English-looking man in it swung round and nearly hit mine."

    When she heard that Madeleine had vanished she asked a relative to inform the police about her sightings.

    More than 30 people have so far phoned in about the artist's impression shown on a Channel 4 documentary last Thursday of a scar-faced man seen loitering outside the McCanns' apartment."


    It's this last bit that caught my attention, why mention "pimple man" sketch? Maybe to get people thinking about all the fuss created about the scary scar-faced man and why had a similar sketch of the woman not been made?...why were so many artist-impressions done out of scores of possible suspects, and why was there no interest from the McCanns and their detectives to make a sketch for that mystery woman? Hummm, woulkd it have looked too much like their friend Jane Tanner?...

  75. Donal has completely lost any grip he may have had on reality when he tells us:

    ‘Just outside, he (Gerry) meets television producer Jes Wilkins on the way back to the tapas bar. There is not another soul on the street.

    Back inside the apartment the abductor must be breathing a sigh of relief as Gerry leaves, then realises his exit route is blocked and plan B has to be put into operation.

    For this, help is essential. The abductor inside the apartment passes Madeleine – probably put to sleep with chloroform – through the open window into the accomplice’s arms.

    In the distance, the voices of Gerry McCann and Jes Wilkins waft through the air.'


    ----

    I take it then that Plan A was to leave by the patio door? Donal has not been very specific here.

    I take it too that the intruder contacted the accomplice by mobile phone to gain this essential help. In Plan A was the accomplice to stand at the patio door and take Madeleine? Or, was the one who removed the child from her bed going to stroll out of the patio door carrying her to wherever the getaway car was parked?

    Did Donal mention where the car was parked? Or which street exactly the lady was standing on a previous night, as that might be a clue for us?

    This may be a little obvious - what prevented the intruders/abductors from using the Front door, be it with, without Madeleine, or to pass her from one to the other?

  76. To re-cap.
    Gerry arrives at the apartment around 9:05. He spends 10 minutes in the apartment. The abductor is hiding in the children’s bedroom.

    When he hears Gerry leave, he contacts his accomplice for essential help and Plan B, exiting by the window, is set in motion.

    Firstly though he has to administer chloroform to keep Madeleine asleep.

  77. ‘What trauma would Madeleine suffer if, terrified and forcibly kept silent, she hears Dad’s voice as she is being bundled into the hands of dangerous strangers? At the same time – about 9.10pm – and unnoticed by Wilkins and Gerry, Jane Tanner observes them chatting.’

    ----

    I won’t even comment on Donal’s remark about the trauma Madeleine may have suffered. The guy is in my opinion an absolute cold and unfeeling idiot!

    Now he tells us that at 9:10 pm Gerry is on the street talking to Jez.

    How can this be? Gerry we know was at 9:00 he tells us this on Oprah Show in the tapas. Donal knows this too. Gerry then leaves to go check on the children. Spending as Donal tells us 10 minutes in the 5 room apartment. If this is so, there is no way Gerry was back on the street at 9:10 speaking to Jez. More importantly, no way the abductor was able to contact his accomplice and set plan B in motion in time to be out on the street for Tanner to see him.

  78. Perhaps the most outrageous but terribly sad statement which Donal McIntyre has made:

    ‘The kidnappers think they have got away with it, but they are on the brink of being caught.’

    -----
    If there are abductors, they most certainly have gotten away with it. It may have escaped Donal's mind, but adeleine is still missing.

  79. Donal is now following the abductor:

    ‘As he (abductor) hits the footpath, he sees both men chatting and Jane Tanner heading his way – three potential witnesses to the abduction, including the father of the child.

    Why choose such a potentially disastrous course? My ¬belief is that he had to make a rendezvous with the getaway driver.'

    -----


    According to J. Tanner the abductor did not look in the direction where she was walking or where Jez and Gerry were standing speaking.

    The man carrying Madeleine, in Donal’s version is the ACCOMPLICE who was the ‘outside look-out,’

    HE would know that Gerry and Jez were standing there.

    Would he not simply have contacted the driver to tell him that there was now a new plan and to pick him up at a DIFFERENT location?

    Afterall The man inside must have contacted the one outside to tell him to come to the window that Plan B was now in force. So surely they did not fail to tell the driver of the new plan?

  80. Donal McIntyre has completely lost the plot now:


    ‘The seven seconds he (abductor number 2) took to cross the road were either well-planned, foolhardy or a sign of breathtaking confidence. In any case, the kidnapper never faltered and was never seen again.’

    -----
    Indeed Donal!

    I think I’d rule out the ‘well-planned’ for obvious reasons of course.

    ‘Breathtaking confidence?’ That requires quite a stretch of the imagination, but then Donal's imagination has been working overtime on this piece.

    Foolhardy? I cannot go with that either as they planned meticulously according to Donal!

    ‘Unbelievable’ is more in keeping with how I would describe both Donal's theory and the action of abductor number 2!

    As for the last part of his sttement, that the kidnapper never faltered and was ‘NEVER SEEN AGAIN’

    If I had a Euro for every time I have seen that very ending written by a young child during writing programme, I would be a rich woman.

  81. Our dear Donal further believes:

    ‘Jane Tanner says he was carrying a child. She believes it was Madeleine and her theory is supported by the McCann investigators.

    The timing of the statements from the key witnesses suggests that there was a maximum of three to five minutes for the abduction to be executed.

    In such circumstances only good planning and co-ordination could make this possible. It would be an extraordinary effort, needing an astonishing degree of luck, if this had been done on an opportunistic basis.

    The clean execution of the kidnap, without a hint of a DNA trace or any useable evidence, means it was highly professional and planned with precision.

    Such precision is the hallmark of fixated, obsessive sexual predators. There were 20 known paedophiles living on the Algarve at the time including one with a flat near the McCanns’ apartment but all have been eliminated as possible perpetrators.’

    -----
    For this I must firstly say that as far as we know the McCann party were not wearing watches that evening, so we cannot be exact re timings, especially not down to this three to five minute execution of the abduction.

    Morever, Donal has told us that Gerry was in the apartment for 10 minutes, the abductor arriving a few minutes ahead of him and leaving after Gerry, but not before he had alerted the other abductors to put Plan B in motion. So the execution of the plan was much longer than 3-5 minutes.

    ‘The clean execution of the kidnap, without a hint of a DNA trace or any useable evidence, means it was highly professional and planned with precision.’


    ------

    Donal seems to forget that whilst Madeleine has in reality disappeared, the theory which he is presenting, as a possibility, carried out meticulously, fails in almost every sentence he utters. This abduction per Donal comes across to the reader as not having been carried out with good planning, co-ordination, highly professional or with precision.

    Far from it if we are to believe his tale.
    --


    'Such precision is the hallmark of fixated, obsessive sexual predators.'

    ----
    I cannot claim like Donal has, to know how ‘fixated obsessive sexual predators’ would behave, but I’ll hazard a guess that when they carried out their REHEARSAL on whichever night they did, that they would have been unable to help themselves, three young children lying before them for the picking?

    I think they would most likely have harmed the children in some way on that occasion if not carry them off.

  84. ‘However, the area must be a magnet for sex offenders. It has a creche, school and nursery. Add a transient population of young holidaymakers and you have a lot of attractions for sexual predators.'

    With its road access the McCann apartment was the most vulnerable in the complex and it is easy to see why a paedophile would make it a target.’

    -----
    Donal forgets that wherever there are children there is a possibility that a paedophile lurks.

    It does not have to be at a school, crèche or nursery, nor in holiday resorts. Common sense has to prevail though, we would never let our children grow to become independent adults if we were to live our lives in fear of them being snatched, or instilling fear in them. Yes they have to be aware of dangers but not terrified witless.

    To make such wild sweeping statements, scaremongering in effect frightening those young people, young families, who may holiday in PDL or other such complexes is reckless irresponsible reporting and behaviour from Donal McIntyre.

    If it was so easy for Donal to see that the McCann apartment was vulnerable, not only to paedophiles but so many other dangers, how is it that the McCann’s appear to be the only parents in the entire world who could not see the dangers?

  85. ‘The McCanns’ decision, formed by the semi-secure nature of the holiday complex, to use a check-in system for their children rather than have babysitters allowed the abductors to strike. In hindsight, that unfortunate decision left their children vulnerable to an ¬abductor.’

    ----

    No Donal, the holiday complex was not ‘semi-secure.’

    Full responsibility for the safety of children lay with the parents of the families who holidayed there.

    The Ocean Club Complex made this abundantly clear.

    The responsibility for the McCann’s not leaving their children in the care of a responsible adult lies firmly at their door.

    The decision to leave their children in an unlocked apartment, was not made by the Ocean Club Management but by the McCann’s themselves.

    The responsibility and reason Madeleine is missing, until such times as an abduction is proved, and proved to have been carried out by someone other than the McCann’s themselves, lies with her parents Kate and Gerry McCann.

  86. ‘Last week I walked unchallenged on to the property in the company of another journalist. We were both unsuitably dressed and surrounded by children and parents. We had a drink and left.

    Two hours later I returned and again was not challenged.’

    Which property is Donal McIntyre referring to? Apartment 5A? Or does he mean that he entered the pool bar area of the complex?

    Most resorts like this, which are not enclosed compounds and include private properties, the restaurants, bars etc are open to non-residents.

    Why would Donal McIntyre expect to be challenged?

    In what way was he unsuitably dressed? Only in flip flops perhaps at a 'collar and tie' do?

  87. Why would Donal McIntyre expect any sane person with any knowledge of this case to be 'taken in' fooled, by such a far- fetched version of events?

    He clearly did not proof-read what he wrote, nor did he check out some crucial facts.

    Whilst this is merely a theory by Donal McIntyre, by not including crucial facts, or including certain information which he must know of, his article I interpret as a blatant attempt to mislead those members of the public who are not familiar with this case.

    His attempts also at removing the responsibility for the care and protection of the McCann children from their parents and placing it with the Mark Warner Group by stating their ‘semi secure’ complex gave the McCann’s a sense of security is astounding and shameful.

    The depths to which people will sink to attempt to defend that which is un-defendable, THE NEGLECT OF THREE YOUNG CHILDREN, is overwhelmingly sad. Knowing that one child disappeared without trace during this period of time, makes the defence of the actions of the parents more sickeningly heinous!

    Madeleine has quite possibly lost her life through the neglectful behaviour of her parent’s.

    If alive, she is suffering the unimaginable. Yet some see fit to defend?

    This child has been failed in every way possible by so many “defenders.”

    What a cruel world for our children when the adults they trust, do not provide the protection that is their right!

    Has he not read the case files? Does he not know that the timings of the McCanns is all over the place?

    Is this an attempt, combined with the libel vultures Carter Ruck's attempts to end freedom of expression in the uK, to allow the McCanns to re-launch their fraudulant extraction of cash from an unsuspecting (and sadly stupid) general public?

    His theory can be pulled apart in moments - if only we all had the same right of freedom of expression as seems only to be avaialble to the McCassn and the media.

  95. Wow, lots of interesting posts on this one. As for me, I'll stick to my original theory - it's a wind up.

    In my opinion, to have written such obvious junk, Donal is either the stupidest investigative journalist that ever wrote a word, or he's playing devil's advocate. I'll go for the latter.

    The article is a parody of various McCann lies - impossible and unbelievable scenarios. The guy is taking the proverbial, and the joke's on the McCanns IMO.

    To Anon (in the post office), I found the exact same reaction down the pub - no-one believed a word - and yes there were rolling eyes and shaking heads. Real ones.

    If I'm right, however, it means that I am now living in country where writers, in order to give light to an idea or belief, are beginning to employ the same tactics used by writers working under the noses of Hitler and Stalin, and - you know - people like that. Eh Gads!

  97. Gerry spend 10 minutes in the flat. He assume that he did not check Madeleine's bed and don't saw her. Then... what was he doing in the flat for so long? Annother lie... it is what that statment from Gerry looks to me, since the beginning. He fail to explain with confidence what was he doing in the flat. Because he put the abductor behind the toilet door, he cannot even justify this 10 minutes with toilet. THE LIES BECAME CLEAR DAY AFTER DAY.

  98. Another fairy tale in the press,I guess the coffers are getting low again!
    Those children should NEVER have been left alone,in fact why on earth did K&G take them on holiday in the first place.Surely they would have been better off at home with granny rather than pushed into the creche at every oportunity.
    Although every parent of a missing child behaves differently K&Gs behaviour at the time beggared belief.When my child went missing I did not function full stop,I couldn't go shopping go to work nothing,so how on earth did K&G manage to go for a happy jog,how did they palm the twins off into the creche knowing that Maddie was gone when other parent in similar situations cling onto siblings for dear life.
    Why did Kate refuse to answer questions,surely in her situation you would do absolutely anything to help with the search.
    Why did Gerry plan to mark her disappearance ( not the anniversary,sooner than that )why did he know she would never be found.
    Why did the government send CM out to support them,other families are lucky to see a police liason officer.

    The one true victim here is a little girl whose parents don't seem to care about.Sadly much money has been made out of this case by solicitors,the press and a group with the strangest parenting skills ever!

    Rest in peace Maddie

  101. BRILLIANTLY funny article by Donal.
    I loved every ridiculous word.
    I never knew he was THAT witty. (But I suppose the Skating was a clue)

    I especially liked the bit about the 3 minute time frame allowing for ALL of the following:

    A) a change of plan, now needing a second person;

    B)the ability to completely sweep the scene of any evidence;

    C)subdue a lightly sleeping child

    D)hide himself in a tiny room with no furniture or door large enough to hide behind

    E)carry the child away in his arms, just a few yards from where he KNOWS the Child's father is talking with a friend.

    THIS ARTICLE IS SHEER GENIUS. the more I read it, the more sense it makes. It's the ONLY way of exposing the NEGLECTFUL PARENTS without Carter Ruck stepping in to silence him, sue him, or whatever.

    Hope he gets an award for this piece. WE LOVE YOU DONAL. I mean, he even gets a word in for the Madeleine Foundation.

    One thing missing, couldn't he have slipped in the fact that the Madelein Foundation has based it's conclusion on the facts and conclusions in the OFFICIAL POLICE FILES. But then again, that would have made his sarcasm too obvious.

    The doctors are so thick skinnned they will never see through it, however, I bet Carter Ruck are spitting feathers right now, especially while reading all these posts!!

  102. The man is too good for his own good..

    When I first read this article I thought, what is this man going on about??!.. Then I went back to read the article again. And I realised that this is an ironic article about the abduction, BUT the man is too good at it.. He is too subtle. He didn't need to embellish his story with things like the dark-haired woman standing in the street, the erratic Nissan driving past etc. I'm afraid many people reading this article will have believed him word for word.. You don't think so? Many believed (including a majority of MPs that voted for the Iraq war) that Saddam had WMDs ready to deploy in 45 minutes. People will believe anything..

    What I find most disturbing is that in a so called free democratic society a journalist has to employ such tactics to get his message across. This belongs more in an oppressive regime.

    Whatever happens about the Madeleine case in the future, whether she is found dead or alive, I will always remember the "Madeleine times" as a time or oppression, as a time of suppression of freedom of speech. And it is scary, because it will have set a precedent. What/who will be the next "Madeleine"? Very scary indeed.

  104. I´m afraid you are right Clare. It looks as if the satire was just a little bit too subtle for most. Just when the McCanns are dishing out threats to anyone who questions the abduction theory, this article comes along to demonstrate exquisitely how impossible an abduction would have been. But even most of the contributors here are taking it seriously, and spitting feathers, so what hope for Express readers? Depressing isn´t it.

  105. Too many flaws in this article to mention, but the obvious one's are,
    During this short holiday, Maddie was first to be noticed by these predators.
    They then find time to watch the habits of the McCann's, over how many days exactly.
    They then put together a plan and also manage to make several dry run's.
    How did these abductor's know the patio doors would be unlocked on this particular night.
    Gerry we are told, entered the apartment through the front door and therefore would not need to cross the lounge.
    Assuming the window and shutters were closed, how did Gerry see anything in the bedroom without putting on the lights.
    The accomplice wouldn't have known there was a change of plan so why was he outside the window.
    Why didn't Jane Tanner see the abductor who had passed Maddie through the window, follow his accomplice down the road.
    If there was a car, why not bring it into the car park outside the bedroom window.
    What I believe is, Gerry was the abductor whom passed Maddie's dead body through the window to an accomplice, whom had a waiting car.
    The original PJ tracker dogs did follow a scent out to the car park where they lost it.

  106. It may be true that the journalist uses subterfuges to convey a different message, however, the really depressing situation here, is that he is forced to use that evasive stratagem or otherwise his article won't be published, or worst- C&R.

    In fact, it's absolutely deplorable to see that a well known investigative journalist, which has made some good Panorama pieces, has now to resort to this absurd technique to avoid the McCann's censorship.

    Either the man is doing the above or he is just another 'McCann whore'.

  108. Joana and Everyone,
    Don`t take this article too seriously. I have just watched the video again and this is typical English humour - the sort of humour that people like G. McCann would not understand because they are blinded by their own arrogance and take themselves far too seriously.

    This is a very clever tactic by the Sunday Express - it is so obviously tongue-in-cheek and the G.McCann tribe will undoubtedly think its in their favour.

  109. Wow, he has actually found the abductor.....
    It's JANE TANNER !

    Wilkins statement:

    I did not have a particular direction to follow nor did I have a specific time to do this. I left the apartment and turned right. I walked via the lower street, looked to the building block where the McCann apartment was situated and saw a woman dressed in purple clothing. I referred to this woman in relation to the questions asked about Jane Tanner.
    .....
    Q. Relative to whether I know Jane Tanner;
    Now I know her name, description of the clothes and photos which I have seen in the press. At that time I knew of her as a member of the group but did not know her name. I do not remember having seen her when I spoke with Gerry, but I believe I saw her when I first ventured out. She was stopped on the street in front of one of the group’s apartments when I passed her down towards the exit to my apartment. I do not know if it was her apartment or not. I remember that she was wearing the colour purple. Q. Relative to the passerby/transient:
    I can affirm that it was a quiet street and it was very unlikely that someone could have passed by be in this way but this as an assumption and I do not remember anything having happened.

  112. Well I don't know. It is hard to credit that he means this report to be taken seriously, but would any serious journalist risk his reputation in this way? It seems unlikely.

    On the other side, I do note that he refers to Madeleine as "a notoriously bad sleeper". But that directly contradicts what Gerry and Kate were telling the PJ - they were giving the impression that the star chart and the waking in the night were all in the past.

    Maybe he is "sending a message".
