Missing Maddie – Cops New Theory August 23rd
Posted by cotojo on August 23, 2007
Police in Portugal searching for missing Madeleine McCann now believe she died accidentally in the holiday apartment where the family were staying. It has been revealed that this is their new favourite theory as to what happened to Maddie.
Sources refuse to say what is meant by ‘accidental’, but it also means that the McCanns and friends holidaying with then, know what happened on the night that Maddie disappeared.
This is a new direction for investigators who are now said to be convinced that Madeleine is dead and that she died in the apartment, although it remains uncertain as to whether she died accidentally or was murdered.
Currently they are leaning towards her death being a tragic accident.
The McCanns have branded this new revelation as ‘ludicrous’ and have said that this does a lot of damage not only to the investigation but to the family also.It is now 112 days since Maddie vanished, and investigations have found nothing tangible to work on.
Maddie’s parents, Kate and Gerry, have remained in Praia da Luz as the investigations continue. They have also said that they can’t give any credit to this new theory, but are aware that all avenues must be investigated.
They have also stated that there is no substance in reports of one of their friends being a suspect with police ready to arrest him.
Yesterday Madeleine’s dad admitted for the first time the chances of getting his daughter back are slim, adding that it is possible that Maddie is dead, but also possible that she is alive.
The family have done a great deal of research into missing children and do not want Madeleine to become another statistic.
Research yesterday for the Find Madeleine Campaign revealed that 97% of MEPs want an EU-wide sex offenders register.
