Maddie – DNA Results Confirmed Positive Sept 11th

Posted by cotojo on September 11, 2007

Portugese investigators have now handed their dossier containing details of their case to the prosecutor who is quickly expected to hand the case over to a judge for a decision on whether there is sufficent evidence for charges to be brought.

The move came as it was revealed that DNA evidence from the holiday apartment and hire car are a 100% match to missing Madeleine.

Missing Maddie

An official at the Attorney Generals Office, which oversees prosecutors, has confirmed that they are in possession of the 1,000+ page dossier.

Neither the police nor the prosecutor’s office would give any details because of the Portugese secrecy laws which cover ongoing investigations.

Police sources say they have three formal suspects, Maddie’s parents Kate and Gerry McCann and Robert Murat.  At present all have denied any involvement and no charges have been brought against anyone relating to the case.

Gerry and Kate McCann

The judge now has 10 days to make a decision on the prosecutor’s request, but it could be made within the next few days with a request for the McCann’s to return to Portugal.

Meanwhile, the couple who returned home to Roxley, Leicestershire, UK on Sunday, have also been visited by Detective Chief Superintendent Bob Small, Leicestershire’s top detective.  The East Midlands Police Force refused to pass any comment on the visit.

The couple are also believed to have appointed solictors to assist their Portugese lawyer in preparing their defence if any charges are brought against them.

In Portugal, police have started new searches in the area around the holiday complex in Praia da Luz.

    Lucy – Thank you for your comment.

    I would agree that it was irresponsible, not only of the McCann’s, but also others in their party, to leave their children unsupervised.

    As a father myself, it is something I would never have considered doing.

    In this case, hindsight is a great thing, but doesn’t put right any wrongs.

    I agree, even if they didn´t kill her they are responsible for having left the kids alone…if you have children and you care, you never leave them alone, we are speaking of toddlers, how can you eat out leaving them on their own?

    Lizcam – Thank you for your comment.

    I’m sure that all avenues will eventually be investigated, and there are many misgivings in this case.
    Once back at home, Social Services were called in by the McCann’s themselves, so it is something that they will also be looking into.

    i think for professionals to go on holiday and leave kid alone especially the doctor whos own child was unwell should be investigated to as this is child neglect.

    Winston – Thank you for passing by and commenting 🙂

    It’s quite an ongoing saga at the moment with so many false reports and the media quoting ‘police sources’. It is difficult to give precise facts as there really are so few official statements being given.

    Kim – Yes it has some similarities to a few unsolved cases and it does seem that there is no hard evidence, only supposition at present.

    See what happens next, but I suspect that the McCann’s will be re-questioned quite soon.
