Loose ends of the case only cleared up with the process reopened

The discovery of new indicia could lead to the formal reopening of the process. If this occurs, proceedings can be made in order to fill up the voids in the case. One of them has to do with the analysis of the hair samples, found in the trunk of a car, rented by the McCann couple 20 days after the disappearance of their daughter.

At that time, the hairs fibres were sent to a Laboratory in Birmingham, that admitted that they could belong to Maddie. However, since they had no roots, it was not possible to identify [and extract nuclear] the DNA. They were returned.

Today that problem seems to have been overcomed. There are now laboratories in Germany and in Holland with the technical capacity to identify the DNA using rootless hairs. They may even provide information on possible drug substances that have been ingested.

It should be recalled, that at the time, information was divulged that the children were given pharmaceuticals drugs in order to help them fall asleep.

00.53.22 1485 “Did the twins wake up at all?”

Reply “They didn’t. They didn’t”.

1485 “In the aftermath?”

Reply “No, and that was the other thing, she kept going into the twins, she kept putting her hands on the twins to check they were breathing, she was very much concerned in checking that they were okay. But they were okay, I mean, they were fine, they didn’t, they were asleep, but at the time it did seem weird, I remember thinking, you know, when the Police came they turned the lights on, there was loads of noise, obviously from the moment Kate discovered that Madeleine was gone, the screaming and the shouting and there was a lot of noise and they, they didn’t, you know, so much as blink”.

“The Solution is in the Process”

Defender of the thesis of Maddie's accidental death, followed by the parental involvement in the concealment of the corpse, Gonçalo Amaral, the first coordinator of the investigation, considers as positive the transfer of the re-evaluation task to a team that is distant from the first phase of the case. Nevertheless, he insists that with the archival “the truth was not able to be ascertained”. “Now, our judicial system might be ridiculed if the British police finds the solution, where it has always been: in the process that was politically archived four years ago”.

Dogs helped the Police

In the Ocean Club apartment, two English dogs detected cadaver odour and found vestiges of blood. That led the investigators to suspect that the child's death had taken place there.

Odour in the Plush Toy

In addition to the apartment, dogs also alerted to the presence of a cadaver odour in a Maddie's plush toy and in the key of the car rented by the McCanns.

Couple refused to Answer

When constituted as ​​arguidos by the PJ, Kate and Gerry McCann used their right, to not answer various questions put to them by the police. In the following day they returned to England.

Special Unit from the Judiciary Police found Carina
A month of searches

Initially there were talks of an abduction with possible connections to former boyfriends. But there were no signs from Carina Ferreira, 21 years old. Her cell phones were inactive and her bank accounts had no activity. The dimension of the mystery, that caused a deep impression in the month of May of 2010, and the absence of answers to several clues, lead the Director of the Judiciary Police from Oporto to develop a special unit.

A month and one week later, and following various false alarms, the case was solved. The inspectors found strange that some of the vegetation of a ravine near the A24 showed signs of devastation. They were searching an area, which according to the triangulation of the last signals sent by her cell phones, was the route taken by the missing young woman.

The investigators descented the ravine and felt a putrid smell. They went down a little further and found the Peugeot 106 toppled-over, already covered by some bushes. Inside it was the body of Carina, in an advanced state of decomposition, with the seat belt on and her mobile phones discharged. If someone had wanted to hide the cadaver, probably they would not have found a place so unusual. Her death was ruled out as an accident.

Experienced in Drug Trafficking cases

The current responsible for the revision of the Maddie case, Helena Monteiro, is the only superior coordinator from the PJ in Oporto. Now at the Section for Criminal Investigation and Prevention of the PJ, has an extensive curriculum connected with drug trafficking cases and robbery. She worked as well in Madeira. Regarded as dedicated and not very talkative, she has also worked at the Public Ministry.

Note: These are short articles and further details added to Jornal de Notícias 2 pages news article dedicated to the Madeleine McCann case. To be read along with «Maddie Case: PJ/Oporto has already been on the field in the Algarve» and with «Virtual reconstitution tests witnesses’ version».


  1. At last the newspapers dare to talk about Martin Smith who saw "someone" carrying a child in his arms that night.


  2. It seems a strange way for somebody to check if a child is OK.

    How did she know they weren't unconscious if she thought something could have happened to them. Just because they were breathing means nothing to the true state of health.

    Presumably this was in between bashing walls, kicking beds, rolling around, but not searching for a child who might have left by the unlocked door and be outside wandering around, or lying injured somewhere.

  3. Hello hello all Joana and assiduous of the case!

    And 5 years after date, the question arises: where are stored the remains of hair that could not be analyzed by their lack of
    roots? they still exist in a very well protected, which has been eliminated?
    If the hair is carefully preserved, so why wait and send them for analysis in Germany or Holland?

  4. Oh! I see. There are still some hairs. Well if they find traces of any "anaesthetics" in it surely the kidnappers "did it". As Clarence "Mickey Mouse" Mitchell puts it: "There is a wholly innocent explanation for any material the police may or may not have found."

    Now, you go and prove otherwise. PR, PR and more PR.What about the dogs? Will they bring them to Rothley? Too late now anyway. That is when the British police should have co-operated and they did not. Think Gaspar's for example...why the PJ co-operating with SY now? To show they are "obedient kids"? Come on!

  5. What did David Payne want to say about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann but did not want it included in his statement. This is what he requested of the officer interviewing him in UK. The case was shelved afterwards, so was the information he wanted to give ever sent on to the PJ?

    Why did David Payne say the fridge in the McCanns holiday apartment where Madeleine went missing, had broken down during that week, yet the McCanns never made mention of it?

    These may be very important 'loose ends' that surely need clearing up.

  6. Also, the FBI looks at hairs to determine if they could have come from a dead body. This was used in the Casey Anthony trial in the U.S. Unfortunately, Casey wasn't convicted, but I wonder if they've used the process in Madeleine's case.

  7. Bom dia e obrigada pelos Vossos trabalhos.

    Vou apenas desabafar acerca de C. F. e da experiência da P.J..........." A month and one week later......... " . As notícias bem podiam deixar a C. descansar em Paz já que a morte foi por de mais violenta assim como o tempo que demoraram a encontrar; logo ali....
    Custa-me muito que a tenham " ressuscitado".

  8. Was Kate not an anaethetist at some stage in her life. She would have access to Propofol, the very same drug that ended the life of Michael Jackson.


  9. She breathed her last breath long before dinner. Sunset was at 8:30pm on May 3, 2007; dusk by 9pm and moonrise at 10:01pm. All to be taken care of between 9pm and 10pm. The rest is simply staged.

  10. The moonrise time of 22:01 (PDL 03 May 2007) assumes a flat horizon. Actual moonrise in central PDL was later than that, because of the large hill to the east of town.

  11. so, why do the PJ not simple send these sample off to a NON UK lab to be tested for match to MM and Corpse banding within the hair. This will tell you that human from the female line of Mccann family was present in the car of around those person close to MM, and was dead at the time, they can also find out any medication she was given. Surely its that simple, if the amtch comes back as ive indicated that would be more than enough to open the case?.

  12. payne on purpose dropped the pedo comments about maddie in Majorca so they would be over heard and used later on to crucifie kate and Gerry in the media prolonging there pain and also distancing his true nature from being a sadistict voyeur and the real reason behind maddies abduction.He probably started the media frenzie and controlled the ball rolling in the right direction to point the finger at kate and Gerry.Hes planned this for a very long time,controled kate and Gerry for years.Hes patient always three moves ahead when not in control will try to confuse you with broken sentences with erms,you know what I mean etc the mans a fucking nightmare
