60 Reasons Booklet Wikileaks (Link)

Released October 14, 2009

British libel lawyers Carter Ruck, acting on behalf of Kate and Gerry McCann, have issued a demand to Madeleine Foundation co-founder Tony Bennett to have this book and all electronic copies to be destroyed. The file has never been released and was used to create the book "What Really Happened to Madeleine McCann: 60 Reasons which suggest she was not abducted".

The book sold thousands after its launch at the end of 2008 and continues to sell, albeit at a peppercorn rate or sent free by Mr. Bennet to journalists and politicians. Due to the prospective financial implications of facing a libel case against arguably Britain's top libel firm, Mr. Bennett has been forced to capitulate even though his supports say he stands by each and every allegation in the book.

The methods used by Carter Ruck while acting for Kate and Gerry McCann have been to silence anyone who challenges the abduction story that they told the police and which forms their alibi in the Madeleine McCann disappearance in Portugal in May 2007.

This file is easily verifiable against the many copies of the book in circulation - including a copy sent to every British MP in the spring of 2009.

If this file is suppressed and the book is destroyed, the public will not be able to read an alternative history of the case case as the McCanns have sought an injunction in Portugal against the chief inspector on the case who has recently had his own book injuncted pending appeal.

It should be noted that WikiLeaks does not have an opinion on Mr. Bennet's arguments or the McCann case. Our interest here is to protect the integrity of the historical record. Wikileaks for download link.

Stop! You're Hurting My Head

Alternative headers:

I can't believe I just read this!

You cannot be fucking serious!?

What fucking planet are you living on?

Cheating the parents of Madeleine McCann might turn out to have been a bad move.

Ken Halligen is currently under arrest and is likely to be charged with three separate different sets of offences. The first is the one he was actually arrested or, which appears to be trying to skip out on a hotel bill.

The second is rather more serious and he is under indictment in hte US for this one: ripping off a firm of lawyers working for Trafigura:

Two weeks ago, he was indicted in the US on charges of wire fraud and money laundering over a false contract with lawyers acting on behalf of Trafigura.

A report from the FBI said that he was wanted for conning the law firm of $2.1 million (£1.26 million) between November 2006 and January 2007. He had supposedly promised to use the funds to secure the release of two of the company’s executives, but allegedly fled and used the money to buy a mansion.

But the one that's most likely to get him into serious trouble is the way that he allegedly ripped off the campaign to find Madeleine McCann.

A 48-year-old man wanted by the FBI who allegedly defrauded people across the world, including the Madeleine McCann fund, was arrested last night at a hotel in Oxford.

Kevin Halligen, from Surrey, was hired by the Find Madeleine fund as a security consultant. His Washington-based company, Oakley International, was awarded a six-month £500,000 contract by the fund, but Mr Halligen allegedly disappeared with £300,000.

Essentially he said that he had access to satellite imagery of the area where Madeleine McCann vanished and records of phone calls from that night. What he actually handed over seemed to have been a print out from Google Maps.

And why is this going to get him into more trouble than the other two? Well, imagine that he does get found guilty and ends up doing some time. What would you like to be known for while in jail or prison? A standard hotel fraud? Ripping off some lawyers? You'd probably get a slap on the back for that second. But ripping of the McCann's?

No, life would not be fun under those circumstances.. Tim Worstall

Get real man, get a life, if he serves time here he'll be a goddamn hero, it will be a walk in the park compared to thirty years in some Yanky hell hole.

Life won't be much fun for somebody else if he ever ends up where he belongs, you know the one I'm talking about, your hero Saint Gerry of Rothley, under the circumstances...

Jim Gamble, What's Your Game Matey?

As with most videos and interviews of this ilk, it usually takes weeks before I can find the stomach to watch them, if at all that is.

Little surprise then that it took me until yesterday to watch this shameful, if not indeed criminal display by Jim Gamble as he attempts, with the weight of the CEOP behind him, to legitimise the McCann's claim that Madeleine was abducted from apartment 5A.

He does this knowing that there is not one bit of evidence to support an abduction, which of course there isn't, not a scrap, not the tiniest bit, nothing, zero, and I challenge him, or anyone else for that matter to produce something to the contrary.

He does this equally knowing that there is much, if not volumes to indicate that Madeleine met her demise in that same apartment, that the Tapas Seven are all liars as indeed are the parents of the dead child, Kate and Gerry McCann.

Jim Gamble is a disgrace, and to use the CEOP in such a manner, more disgraceful still.

A few highlights then from the video showing at the bottom of the page, though I only feature the first two nauseating minutes.

The BBC Can Go To The Devil

But they already know that because they are under notice, yet given the two letters below fell through the door on the same day, one has to wonder.

And why so, why no more TV licence from me?

For one. I can live without it and have previously done so for years.

For two. The BBC having taken over the broadcasting of Formula One this year surpassed even their own high standards for outside broadcasting, a truly slick and professional show, quite simply the best coverage ever of the sport.

Having achieved this remarkable standard in their first year, they then destroyed the whole shebang by employing as the main commentator, Jonathan, I'm such a fucking gobshite who knows nothing about F1 but that's not going to stop me talking shite all through the race, Legard, as to make the whole thing unwatchable.

For three, and by no means least. The blatant partiality shown by the BBC in covering the Madeleine McCann case, the ongoing drivel and sycophantic shite that is typified in the post above this, is quite simply, fucking outrageous. And Mike O'Sullivan of BBC's East Midlands? don't set me off.

To bring this dire level of "reporting" into my home, the BBC asks that I unquestionably give them one hundred and forty pounds per annum. Not this kiddy, never ever again.

For readers from abroad. If you own a television set, the licence fee is compulsory.

ETA: Directed to any F1 fans that visit.

I was mortified when Juan Pablo Montoya quit F1 to go roundy roundy redneck racing for Jesus, (NASCAR) but being a fan of this particular fellow, a lifetime first I might add, I just ain't that kind of guy, so being a fan I started to watch live streams of the racing.

I guess you could say JPM and myself went through a similar apprenticeship, JPM to learn how to drive and master an eight hundred horsepower tractor, for want of a better description, and for myself to understand and appreciate that there is an awful lot more to NASCAR than just turning left.

It helped of course, as with all sports, getting to know the individual characters that participated, finally bringing me to say something I never thought I would, NASCAR is more exciting and has better racing than F1.

Congratulations JP Montoya on a great third year in NASCAR.

That's Funny, I Thought It Was The Sun

It must be my mistake or perhaps I dreamt seeing the recent sensational "we captured Halligen" headlines in Britain's biggest selling daily, not to be confused by the way with the world's greatest newspaper, the Express.

Yesterday, it emerged that journalism student Christopher Winsley was instrumental in finding Halligen, wanted by the FBI for an alleged £1.3m con in America.

Christopher had worked part-time at the plush Old Bank Hotel during the summer when studying at Brookes College when Halligen was almost a permanent guest, hardly ever leaving the £350-a-night-room hotel and drinking heavily in the bar. more Joana Morais

A New Blog

Well picked up, food for thought.

McCanns: Lying Liars and the Lies They Tell Analyzed

If you are a regular visitor here, this oft featured video will be no stranger to you.

I have no details of the blog, or the who, but whoever the he/she is, there is an analysis of this clip that I have never seen the likes of.

A sterling piece of work, drive on that person, good stuff indeed.

Sedative Interview

Interviewer question

“On that evening did you give to your kids something like calpol to help them sleep?”

 Gerry McCann -

“(swallow, els&dr)(Intake of breath) you know we’re not gonna (head back) comment, on anything (ec) but you know there is absolutely (head back). No way we use any sedative drugs (head down, ec, head shake, scratch behind l earlobe, looks back at I, slight smile) or anything like that en (ldr, rhb) you know we’ll we have (ldr) co-operated with the police (ldr) we’ll answer any queries ermm (ldr)…any tests that they want to do en.”

First cluster – Swallow, eyes look sideways & down right, intake of breath

Firstly, the Adam’s apple is emotionally responsive (i.e. it reflects visceral or gut feelings). Acting through the vagus nerve (cranial X) emotional tension from the brain’s limbic system causes unconscious muscular contractions of the sternothyroid, thyrohyoid and associated inferior pharyngeal constrictor muscles of the Adam’s apple. This movement is evident as the muscles contract to swallow, to throat-clear or to vocalize an objection that may be left unsaid. This swallowing movement indicates feelings of anxiety or embarrassment.

I find it hard to imagine why Gerry would become anxious or embarrassed by this question (angry, hurt, yes), unless of course these feeling were stimulated at the prospect of having to lie in which case it would indicate that either he, or someone else, had given the children calpol or other sedatives to help them sleep on that night.

For reasons best known to the cyber gods the Wordpress blog of the owner and my Blogger blog don't seem at all compatible so I can only give you a general site link.

The page in question has finally opened,
but if you struggle use the link above.

The second video clip the "one year on" is also analysed, this time in slo-mo, catch that one too if you have the band width.

It was only yesterday that I was tipped about the site, I have no details whatsoever about the blog.

I am rather hoping the blog owner might add this one to his portfolio, another little favourite of mine.

Nice One Goncalo

If this doesn't breath new life into my flagging creativity nothing will.

Drive on my man.

Life’s irony: Gonçalo Amaral, who in court helped to condemn Joana’s mother over her daughter’s death, is going to train, from January onwards, at the Portimão office of João Grade dos Santos, Leonor Cipriano’s first lawyer.

On the other hand, João Grade stopped defending Leonor – who exchanged him for lawyer Marcos Aragão Correia – on the eve of the trial of the five PJ inspectors and former inspectors that stood accused by the Public Ministry of torture over Joana’s mother.

“Since the first moment of the Joana case, I never forgot that I was merely a lawyer playing my role, and Amaral was a policeman”, João Grade dos Santos told 24horas. more Joana Morias

Update: Jeebus!

I see some of the usual suspects are here in force. Every time there is comments allowed for this poor unfortunate child and her beleaguered parents, they all turn up to dispense their vileness and venom.

There is nothing odd about this case, except perhaps the man that was first in charge of the investigation preferred to take long 3 hour lunches instead of looking for the child and then turn his hand to libelling the parents and selling his story in book form and to anyone else that would buy it, thus turning himself into a euro millionaire at the child's expense. Where else have you ever seen such a disgrace as that? The Portuguese courts agree, they have injuncted Amaral.

So you see these poor parents have been conned by British and Portuguese conmen, not bothered about poor little Madeleine, just bothered about making money off of her back and none have done that quite so spectacularly as Goncalo Amaral.

Meanwhile, these poor parents are left desperately trying to search for their daughter on their own, depending on the fund and relatives money to fund the search.

Scotland Yard should be investigating this, Madeleine is a British citizen and a minor, bless her little heart.

It is an absolute disgrace that this country has done nothing to help her parents find this child. The government should negotiate with the Portuguese government to give jurisdiction to detectives from Scotland Yard in Portugal to reopen and run this investigation and all of Scotland Yards technology, like HOLMES should be put to use, after all Madeleine is British, her parents British taxpayers. It is a travesty that this poor child has been abandoned by the British government.
Madeleine McCann fund hired ‘secret agent’ conman. Found in the comments section.

"These are the big boys" - Clarence Mitchell

A private detective whose company was paid up to £500,000 from publicly donated funds to find Madeleine McCann has been charged with fraud.
The McCanns had previously hired Barcelona-based detective agency Metodo 3 on a reported £50,000 a month. But the company lost credibility with the couple when its head of operations claimed he knew who had kidnapped Madeleine and hoped to have her home by Christmas.

After Halligen, the McCanns hired two former British detectives, David Edgar and Arthur Cowley. In August, Mr Edgar appealed for sightings of an Australian 'Victoria Beckham lookalike'. But a Mail on Sunday investigation revealed the detectives had failed to make the most basic of inquiries in Barcelona where the woman was seen.

The McCanns' spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, insisted the fund had not been duped. more

The Available Evidence Supporting an Abduction and the CEOP

Because Gerry McCann says she was, is, as you can well imagine, no basis for the involvement of the CEOP and their "abducted by strangers" campaign.

I think we are entitled to some answers.

CEOP Are You Going To Share The New Evidence With Us?

I have to assume you are in possession of some startling new evidence that confirms unequivocally that Madeleine McCann was abducted and similarly you hold evidence that supports the existence of said abductor.

Please share this evidence with us, it must exist, for what other possible reason could there be for aligning yourself with the people described below?

Please I pray, do share.

"Ironside" has assembled an interesting and comprehensive folder on Jim Gamble and his association with various organisations, you might recognise one or two. See link at the bottom of the page.

And while you're there, a not to be missed catalogue of John Buck's initial involvement, a splendidly researched dossier compiled by "Roisin" quite an eye opener.

Many of you will be quite familiar with the report from Tavares de Almeida, but there will be visitors here that haven't as yet seen the thing and of course it's just as relevant today as ever it was and this is another opportunity and another location to put it into the public domain.

Something is amiss here, and in a very big way.

Intercalary report

For the attention of the
Criminal Investigation Coordinator

Madeleine Beth Maccann was born on the 12th of May 2003.
She has been missing since the 3rd of May 2007, a fact that took place in Praia da Luz, in Lagos.

She is the daughter of Gerald and Kate McCann and her birth was desired and planned.
The mother’s difficulty in becoming pregnant should nevertheless be mentioned, as well as the resulting necessary treatments and the ‘cost’ thereof.
She was born from ‘in vitro’ insemination, but the tracing of the child’s DNA shows that she is in fact the McCann couple’s daughter.

It is a scientific fact that the medical treatments to overcome some of the causes for the lack of pregnancy increase the likelihood of twins being born from a so-called normal pregnancy.

In this case, we can see that a pregnancy, although desired and planned, turned a family of three into a family of five.
Moreover, caring for one child is not the same as caring for three, all of tender age.


At around midnight on the 3rd of May 2007, through a phone connection between the GNR in Lagos and this police station, the disappearance of a child, an English subject, was communicated.

We went on location in order to perform the necessary judiciary inspection.

Faced with the fact, the disappearance of a child, the investigation “drew out” the various possible scenarios.

The child’s parents immediately attributed the fact (disappearance) to the action of a third party, defending the ABDUCTION.

While [abduction] being one of the possible scenarios, the family’s actions led into that direction, by publicising the fact in a manner that had never been seen before.

In fact, on the very next day, English television stations ‘opened’ their newscasts, already advertising the child’s disappearance / abduction.

The defence of this scenario was the ‘truth’ of the facts under investigation, for the media.

Time went by and that scenario was not confirmed as its presuppositions were not ‘fulfilled’. No ransom was ever demanded in exchange for information or for the child itself.
Nevertheless, and considering the deposition by one of the friends, Jane Tanner, we could be looking at said scenario.

Meanwhile, diligences continued in order to collect all kinds of information and always with the purpose of working all scenarios that were still a possibility.


The information that was initially collected with family and friends was uncertain and had been “worked” upon by the group, in order to strengthen the version that had been presented and defended.

According to the version of the parents and of the GROUP, they went out to dine and all of them left their children, asleep, in their apartments.

The group’s members held a meeting during which they agreed on certain rules that sustained a version of continuous checking of the children, while they dined.

The process includes a manuscript by one of the group’s members that supports this thesis.

These principles, which in this manner, have been shared by the entire group, have the effect that for the English public opinion the whole GROUP is always cleared, rendering any abnormal event that might last longer than 30 minutes impossible, given the fact that they all agreed that was the time lapse in which the children were checked.

The version that someone from the group went to the apartments to check that everything was well, every 15 or 30 minutes, collapses!!

Total incoherence results from the GROUP’s statements, which makes it easy to verify that everyone lies.

We can verify that one of the group’s elements, wishing to make the group’s version about the checking, more consistent, gives it a personal touch: the checks on the children were carried out in two manners, one just to listen if anyone was crying, and in case of silence all was well, and the other one by actually checking.

On his turn to check on the children, one of the group’s elements, Matthew, did just that, as he even told Kate that all was well, with no further explanation. Kate recalls this detail.

But the truth is that this information leads the investigation to wander about, to waste time and resources.

It is not understandable that this information is given at the beginning and sustained throughout time, despite the fact that anyone can verify the damage that results from it, for the investigation.

After all this time, the version is upheld !! as well as the public, insistent statement that what they want most is to “assist the investigation”.

The investigation was forced to assume the information was incorrect, and move forward.

This only!! results in:

If someone checked on the children and all was well, the disappearance took place between 9.30 and 10 p.m.;

If the information wouldn’t be counting on said witness (?), then the disappearance would have taken place between 9 and 10 p.m., widening the time period (presuming that the father speaks the truth).

But there is another question about the timing which is:

The last time that the child was seen outside of the group, by someone who can prove that moment, was at around 5.35 p.m., when the parents went to pick her up at the crèche, which may widen the time lapse between the disappearance and the alert, into four hours.


Continuing to analyse the information that was offered, we have one of the group’s members, Jane Tanner, becoming a supposedly important witness, due to what she told us: she saw someone crossing the street at dinner time: from the location of the disappearance into the direction of Robert Murat’s house.

This information directed and occupied the investigators’ work for a long time. This may be an example of how information that is not correct, may not only delay, but may have led to losing the little girl.

By insisting on the information, scenarios were outlined which failed to match said information with reality, but still long and intense work was carried out on that arguido.

In the same manner, we can verify the discrepancy about the subject, in statements from Gerald and Jane. How they passed each other at only two or three meters’ distance, yet failed to see each other; can they position themselves in such a reduced space, and both fail to see the same person walking by; more correctly, one sees and the other doesn’t.

Even the location where they supposedly crossed ways is not very well defined by both.

The moment chosen by the witness Jane to make her statement about what she had “seen” and the explanation for that moment is unreal, which is to say, it is not easy to accept that any witness (from the group) upon seeing someone with a child in the arms getting away from the McCann’s place, hadn’t immediately acted or spoken, being certain that the description of the person was being consecutively altered, “perfected”. Therefore, there isn’t much credibility in this deposition.


Until now we have been analyzing small distortions in the information that was initially transmitted, “small” alterations (distortions) of the truth taking place, thus relating them with the investigation and with the direction it forced it into.

The investigation didn’t follow the command or the will of anyone; the family and group information that is fundamental in this type of crime, was always distorted.

The fact that the individuals were foreigners prevented, until now, that direct information about the persons of the GROUP could be collected.


The parents of the minor live in a society, the British, known through the press, as being very demanding. The profession of both parents, medicine, completed by the fact that the father is a surgeon, increases this degree of demand and consequent tiredness.

In a society that is identified internationally and in the Media as being very demanding and with many and tight rules to establish those standards of exigency, it makes it obligatory that people rest; make a professional retreat; take their holidays.

Gerald McCann is a cardiovascular surgeon.

In many moments of his professional career he had to make decisions in thousandths of a second, which ‘gives’ him a certain coldness, and certainly provokes an increased tiredness.

The enjoyment of a period of holidays supposes a rest through non-ordinary practices and freedom and exemption from schedules.

The social life in such a holiday, in the present case, was facilitated by the fact that they travelled as a group.

But that social life may, in a certain way, be touched by the presence and constant needs of accompanying the minors.

This fact and need was clear in the deliverance of the children to the respective child centres and crèches (according to their ages). The holiday time was not shared between parents and children.


The 3rd of May of 2007 had gone by, until around dinner time, in a natural way according to the adopted style.
After fetching the children from the nursery and the crèche they went to the apartment, shortly after 17:35h.
But…Kate went running for half an hour on the beach and then went to the apartment and…Gerald went to play tennis.

While the tennis match was taking place, another member of the group, who had been in touch with Kate, in the apartment, for a period of time that took between 30 seconds, according to Kate, and 30 minutes, according to Gerald, showed up.

In thirty seconds we may ask if everything is well and if anything is needed, little more.
In thirty minutes we can go ahead and do something that is requested from us…

They put the minors to bed and to sleep, at around 19:30h. They remained at home until around 20:30h, going to the Tapas restaurant afterwards. They were the first to arrive, out of the group.

After the entire group was at the table and when the meal started, the “checks” on the children began, in a way that is neither coherent nor acceptable; it could not be confirmed and only the group defends it, in a sort of “unique version”.

Although they say in their statements that their strategic position in the Tapas restaurant allowed them, the McCanns, to see the apartment where they’d left their underage children asleep, the examination of the spot reveals it is false.

It must be noted, also, that according to the investigation. everything points to their position at the table being with their backs to the apartment.

On that NIGHT, around 22:05h, according to her version, it was Kate that went to the apartment to check the children, coinciding with the end of the dinner, at which she had arrived at around 20:30h.

So, she returned to the apartment about one and a half hours later, the time lapse during which she didn’t see her children.

It took her about 10 minutes!!. She then showed up at the restaurant and told the remaining members about the disappearance of her daughter Madeleine.

It must be noted that Kate knew that, going back to the restaurant as she did, she would leave the twins, Amelie and Sean, in the same dangerous situation.

It is not understandable why she didn’t use the mobile phone to call Gerald or the group or, even simpler, that she didn’t walk out on the balcony from where she could be perfectly heard by the members of the group.


The authorities, the GNR, were alerted at around 22:40h, and the alerted population started the searches for the child.

The divulgation of the facts wasn’t kept within the authorities and the normal channels. On the following day, British and Portuguese televisions were broadcasting the news.

However, the GROUP had been reunited. The search was circumscribed to the interior of the apartment.

Even before any search by the authorities in the surroundings started, the news about the possible abduction was already running along.

By reasons, they said, of counselling and support, the parents asked for the presence of a priest, at around 02:00h/03:00h on the 04th of May.

From the informal depositions they gave, during the judiciary inspection on location, the information immediately induced the thesis of ABDUCTION.

Simple things became disinformation: the question of the open or closed window; the shutter up or down; the open balcony door…the front door, merely shut or locked by key.


Despite everything, until a certain time in the investigation, the family sustained and fed the theory of abduction. However, on a date that cannot be precise it was suggested by the family that a person should be consulted that could, eventually, indicate the probable location of little Madeleine’s cadaver.

This fact became inexplicable to the members of the investigation, given the fact that it was the members of the family themselves who raised the hypothesis little Maddie’s death.

Nevertheless, for the media they continued (and continue) to declare their hope of finding their daughter alive: the first time that the hypothesis of the little girl’s death was raised it was, effectively, suggested by the McCann couple.


While keeping several investigation lines open, it was decided to advance in the direction of a new inspection of the spot where the girl disappeared.

The inspection technique is commonly used in the United Kingdom and consists of the use of especially trained dogs.

Naturally, the dog’s smelling sense is the ‘sense’ at use. In the case of this ‘sense’, the difference between the human and the dog is of 5 million cells to 200 million cells.
It must be highlighted that the use to this kind of inspection is frequent in the UK and the success rate is of 100%.

One of the dogs is trained to detect cadaver odour and the other to identify traces of human blood.

We now stress that the location of the cadaver odours signifies that physically the body (cadaver) is not on the place, marked by the dog, but certainly it has been there, as long as the dog signals it.

As can be read in the process files, in this inquiry, the dogs inspected the following locations and items, with the results described below.

All the inspections were recorded in sound and image and were directed by our British colleagues that accompany the dogs.

Among the great number of items and locations that were inspected, the dogs marked the following locations and items:

1. Apartment 5 A, Ocean Club resort, the place from where the child disappeared
1.1. Cadaver odour detection dog:

* master bedroom, in a corner, by the wardrobe
* living room, behind the sofa, by the side window

1.2. Blood dog:

* living room behind the sofa, by the side window (exactly the same spot that had been signalled by the cadaver dog);

2. Front garden of apartment 5A:
2.1. Cadaver odour detection dog:

* one of the flower beds (the dog handler commented on the “lightness” of the odour)

3. Apartments where the rest of the group were staying:

* NOTHING was detected by the dogs

4. McCanns’ present residence (at that time):

* NOTHING was detected in the house by any of the dogs

5. In Aldeia da Luz village:

* NOTHING was detected by any of the dogs

6. McCann family’s clothes and belongings:
6.1. Cadaver odour detection dog:

* two pieces of clothing belonging to Kate McCann
* one piece of clothing belonging to Madeleine
* Madeleine’s soft toy
* the cadaver odour was detected when the toy was still inside the residence (the McCanns’, at that date)
* it was confirmed under out of the house conditions

7. The vehicle that was used by the McCann family:
7.1. Cadaver odour detection dog:

* marked the car key
* marked the inside of the car boot

7.2. Blood dog:

* marked the car key
* marked the inside of the car boot

8. Car that was used by a family friend that was staying in the same resort, on some of the same days :

* nothing was detected by any of the dogs

9. All the cars that were used by arguido Robert Murat and the people that are close to him:

* nothing was detected by any of the dogs.

(In a total of 10 cars the cadaver dog and the blood dog only marked the car of the McCann family, rented on the 27th of May!!!)

The locations and items that were marked and signalled by the blood dog are being subject to forensic exams, part of which are already concluded.

Not less relevant is the refinement of the results that point towards Madeleine’s DNA as being present in apartment 5A, behind the sofa, a spot that was marked by the cadaver and the blood dog. In every place marked by the blood dog, the laboratory confirmed that DNA was present.


The media attention that has been given to the case and the search for information by said media has led to an evolution in Madeleine’s parents’ statements.

All the information that was made public, has contributed to the rebuilding of the story, adapting it to eventual police questions, and to attempts to justify the indicia and consequent evidence that is being collected.

Let’s see: the media suggested the possibility that the children could have been sedated to be kept asleep and allow the parents some rest.

Distant in time, Kate’s father, the grandfather of the child, Brian Healy, admits to the press that Kate could have administered some medication to the little girl, Calpol, to help the child (the children??) to sleep, contrary to what his daughter Kate has been stating.

Kate, through the PJ inspector that acted as “liaison” with the family, asked why samples weren’t taken from the twins in order to test that hypothesis. She knew well enough at that time, more than 3 months later, that such an exam would be worthless.

She went even further and said that we – the investigation – should verify that the abductor had sedated Madeleine, in order to accomplish his action and that he had also sedated the twins…to consummate the act…however she didn’t say that at the right moment.

What we certainly know is that the sedatives have timings to act and timings to be expelled, that vary between six and 200 hours.
The McCanns’ medical knowledge is enough to know this, even if their professional activity never included performing toxicology exams.

When the media informed that blood had been detected “in the car and in the apartment”, Kate and members of her family come to the public with the simple excuse that it had been someone, who had access to the apartment, that had placed the evidence.

Now they even admit it was the criminal investigation body that placed the “false” evidence (blood and cadaver odour in the apartment and in the car).

In an attempt to justify the blood, Kate went even further, informing, on that occasion, that Madeleine sometimes suffered nosebleeds.


On the day that the house search was performed, at the McCanns’ residence, written papers were found in the master bedroom, as well as a bible, written in English. It was open on the pages whose copies are annexed to this report, with the translation.


ABDUCTION is a situation with which, unfortunately, in the United Kingdom, most of the public opinion is acquainted, due to the rate of this kind of crime.

Intelligent people should have a minimum of knowledge that publicity damages the investigation of an abduction crime and is especially threatening to the safety of the abducted person.

They should wait for the decisions from the police authorities; there is strong evidence that the crime scene was altered, and some furniture was moved around.

Those changes are indications of simulation.


On the night that little Madeleine disappeared, the family was contacted by a lady that identified herself with documents that credited her as somebody that worked with minors in the United Kingdom.

She identified herself with documents/certifications that are used in the UK, with hospitals and child care centres. She offered her help in whatever was needed.
No doubt this person could have been of valuable help, even about procedures, but she was dismissed.


From everything that was established, the facts point in the direction that the death of Madeleine McCann occurred, on the night of May 3rd of 2007, inside apartment 5A, at the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz, which was occupied by the McCann couple and by their three children;

There is a coincidence between the marking of cadaver odour and blood, according to the (partial) Laboratory Report that has been annexed to the process files.

Said marking occurred behind the living room sofa (cadaver odour / blood / DNA), which indubitably proves that said piece of furniture was pushed back by someone, after the death of Madeleine McCann was verified. Because of the few traces that were recovered on location and subject to examination, it has to be admitted as a strong hypothesis that it was subject to a “washing”, at a moment following the occurrence of death.

In the same manner, the soft toy that was used by the dead child, which was found at the top of the bed where she usually slept (cf. photos from the initial inspection) reveals that someone put it there at a moment posterior to death, given the fact that the bed doesn’t have any cadaver odour. This is to say, an intentional modification took place, in order to simulate a “picture” that doesn’t match reality, in an attempt to take advantage for the simulation of an abduction scenario;

It must be added that the cadaver odour detection dog strongly signalled the bedroom where the McCann couple slept, which may indicate the moving of the corpse from the actual death spot (living room) into a non visible part of said bedroom;

Furthermore a strong marking of cadaver odour was made on Kate McCann’s clothes, which may indicate that she was in touch with the cadaver;

There was also a strong marking of cadaver odour in the car that was used by the McCann couple (since the 27th of May 2007), which in conjugation with the blood dog’s marking and based on the forensics that are included in the process files, which indicate the presence of Madeleine McCann’s DNA in the car boot, lead towards not excluding a strong hypothesis that this vehicle may have possibly been used move the cadaver, 24 days after the death;

The indication from the cadaver odour detection dog, as well as from the blood detection dog, on the key of the aforementioned vehicle, where the laboratory would confirm the existence of Gerald McCann’s DNA, cannot be dismissed. This last signalling was obtained by the dogs after the key was put far away from the vehicle, in a non visible location.


From everything that is exposed, the process files result in the following:

A) the minor Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5A at the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz, on the night of the 3rd of May 2007;

B) a simulation of an abduction took place;

C) in order to render the child’s death impossible before 22H00, a situation of checking of the McCann couple’s children while they slept was made up;

D) Kate McCann and Gerald McCann are involved in the concealment of the cadaver of their daughter, Madeleine McCann;

E) at this moment, there seem to be no strong indications that the child’s death was not the result of a tragic accident, yet;

F) from what has been established up to now, everything indicates that the McCann couple, in self-defence, doesn’t want to deliver the cadaver immediately and voluntarily, and there is a strong possibility that it was moved from the initial place of deposition. This situation may raise questions concerning the circumstances in which the death of the child took place.


Therefore, we suggest that the case files are sent to the Republic’s Prosecutor, in the Lagos legal district, for:

G) a possible new questioning of the arguidos Kate and Gerald McCann;

H) an evaluation of the measure of restraint to be applied in this case;

During the house search at the McCann couple’s residence, a diary style manuscript was found, already photocopied, possibly authored by Kate McCann; admitting that it may contain information that may help to reach the material truth of facts, WE PROPOSE THAT:

I) the photocopies of said document are presented to the illustrious Judge for the purpose of its apprehension, if legal, its translation and eventual collection of information to be included in the process files, as necessary for the investigation.

At this date, I subject the case files to your appreciation, for you to determine whatever you may see as convenient, hence I open:

Stuart Prior Leicestershire Constabulary: Least We Forget

Nothing new but just a little reminder of the relationship between Leicester Police and then, and to remain so for another six months, arguidos Kate and Gerry McCann.

The correspondence relates to Gail Cooper's fifteen minutes of fame but that's not the crux of this post as you will note. (Emphasis mine.)

Emails from Stuart Prior Leics police to Ricardo Paiva* PJ (see below)


Date: 16th January 2008

From: Stuart Prior

To: Ricardo Paiva

Subject: Forward sketch

Annexes: BK – MM presentat (sic) Jan 08, Gail Cooper (2) doc, Paul Gordon (3) doc, Trudy dawkin (2) doc, tanner description 2 doc, Summary of second statement Tanner doc.


Please get back to me as soon as possible with your instructions.

The power point attached was completed by the McCanns but the statements were all taken by UK police.

The Jane Tanner description was taken from the press and also from the summary of her statement.

Does Paolo want the sketches showing to Paul Gordon or do we want to get a new sketch prepared by Paul. There is some urgency around this as we need to decide prior to the Gail Cooper artist impression appearing in the UK press.

Unfortunately I didn't save the article (board post?) that said Leics. plod knew that this sighting was a crock.
It would be nice if anybody out there knows what I'm talking about and could furnish a link particularly after noting the highlight above. I do have the feeling however that I read it on the 3As.

Does he want Gail re-interviewing re the new information.

Do you want the husband and son (although this may be difficult due to the son’s medical condition) of Gail Cooper interviewing.

Do you want the other witness, the friend of Alfred Schuurman’s tracking down if they are in the UK.

How are you going to deal with possible press issues.

What are you planning around Mr Kennedy or the private investigation firm.

We do not have Afred Schuurman or Gail’s husband or son in our system.

Gail Porter’s statement was sent to Portugal on 23rd May and Paul Gordon’s was sent to Portugal prior to 14th May.

I will need to get back to the McCanns as he asked to be updated, how would Paolo want this conducting and what information am to provide them They are very excited about this potential lead.

Give me a call back.




Date: 18th January 2008

From: Stuart Prior

To: Ricardo Paiva

Subject: BC4 Memo, Gail Cooper doc. Gail Cooper statement, Iris Morgan doc, report Morgan doc, Rex Morgan doc.


All the docs attached in this and the next two emails as discussed earlier today.

We are still working on one or two aspects and I will get back to you over this and for any further direction from yourselves over facial recognition.

As we have discussed I have given Gerry a brief update just saying that the other descriptions are different to the artists impressions completed by Gail and identified by Jane. That the witnesses appeared genuine which indicates a number of charity collectors in the area prior to Madeleine being taken. I informed him everything has been forwarded to yourselves.

We have not spoken with Jane at all and will not share our e fits with anybody except yourselves unless you request this from us. It appears there were at least three charity collectors if not more in the area in the weeks prior to Madeleine being taken.

I am told that the artist impression by Gail Cooper is likely to hit the media over the weekend and I will update you on the effects of this next week, although we are not involved in this in any way at all.

Hope all is well.

Spk soon.


Ricardo Paiva.*
Days before the McCann couple was called for interrogation for the second time and made arguidos, Gerry McCann called the PJ inspector, Ricardo Paiva, who was responsible for the couple’s communication with the police, by phone, underlining their innocence. “I am certain that the police has no evidence against us”, Gerry said to inspector Ricardo Paiva, one can read in the Maddie case process, which was released yesterday. Interesting article in it's own right.

ETA: It is the likes of this below that establishes the playing field and what rules (none) that I abide by when dealing with the McCanns. But Murat is not unique here, there have others aplenty who's lives and innocence never came into the equation, nobody mattered, only them.

But it is Murat that was most vulnerable, it was he the McCanns would have watched with delight had he gone up the river for twenty in payment for their own dark crimes.

By the bye, Murat doesn't give me the same feel good factor that he did at once upon a time.

According to the inspector, the McCann couple said several times that the PJ should be focused only on the abduction theory.

And more: “That the police should not forget to continue investigating the suspect Robert Murat.”

And for the record, the subject matter in the emails.

(From PJ files) Questioned, (Tanner) she stated probably being able to identify the person that she saw if she saw him in profile and at the place where she saw him.

80% You're a star Jane.
