Missing Maddie – Parents Quizzed Again
Posted by cotojo on September 6, 2007
The parents of missing 4 year-old Madeleine McCann are being re-interviewed by Portuguese police.
It has been reported that Kate and Gerry McCann arrived at the police station in Portimao this afternoon, accompanied ny her husband and lawyer. It is believed that Kate McCann will be interviewed today and Gerry McCann is to be interviewed tomorrow.
Reports also state that the McCanns were called by investigators on Monday and were asked to attend the interviews and that Kate McCann would be interviewed first.
This is the second time that Kate has been formally interviewed by the police, the first time being on May 4, the day after Madeleine disappeared.
Gerry McCann has already been quizzed twice and it is also expected that the new interviews will be longer than earlier ones they have had.
Although the family were considering returning home to the UK, if there are any new developments they will stay in Portugal.
Portugese investigators are still saying very little but there are reports from unconfirmed sources, that there could soon be some arrests after DNA results yielded new information.
It is known that blood, hair and fibre samples were found by British forensic teams and sent to the UK for detailed analysis. The results of these are not being made public at present.
Portugese investigators are still refusing to say whether any of the new DNA and forensic results have any link to Maddie or possible suspects.
The McCanns are furious with the Portugese investigators who have failed to keep them updated with new information, but there is now speculation of a major breakthrough within the next few days.
