Missing Maddie – Top Cop Blames McCanns

Posted by cotojo on June 18, 2007

 Olegario Sousa

THE cop leading the search for Madeleine McCann yesterday blamed her distraught FAMILY for his bungled investigation. Olegario Sousa shamelessly accused them of contaminating the crime scene by searching their holiday apartment after the four-year-old vanished.The Portuguese officer said it could have been “fatal” for the investigation.

But his comments were seen as a bid to deflect from his flailing probe, which after 46 days has failed to find a trace of snatched Maddie.

Sousa said more than 20 people — including family friends — entered the apartment in Praia da Luz, touching furniture and opening and closing doors and windows.

He added: “The presence of so many people — especially in the room where the little girl slept with her brother and sister — could have at least complicated the work of the forensic team.

“At the very worst they would have destroyed all the evidence.
This could prove to be fatal for the investigation.”

Sousa’s remarks angered those close to the McCanns, who were yesterday said to be “dismayed.”

A source said: “It’s insensitive at the very least.
Of course the family are going to search the apartment.
If your child goes missing, you search under beds, in wardrobes, behind the doors — everywhere.”

    Thanks Miguel,
    I quite agree with you. I am a father too and would never consider leaving any child on their own, and what makes it worse in this case is that both parents work in the medical profession and should have known better. It’s a sad case but it could so easily have been prevented from happening in the first place.

    That is true, you look after your missing child, but first you DO NOT LEAVE your children alone! Secondly, if you don’t find them you don’t bring 20 people in, you call the Police!
    My congratulations to the Portuguese Police.
