19.45 – Maybe people don’t know, but the search at Robert Murat’s house takes place on a Monday morning, and on Sunday evening, we’re in a meeting with the Public Ministry, with the prosecutor, with the judge, me and Dr Luís Neves, we’re at the court house while diligences are being carried out in Praia da Luz. Diligences to confirm the suspicion against Robert Murat. And Mrs Jane Tanner is placed inside a police surveillance vehicle, several people walk by, policemen, people that Mrs Jane Tanner had never seen before, and Mr Robert Murat among them, and she says that from the way he walks, he is the person that was carrying the child.

20.27 – In fact, Jane Tanner’s memory progressively improves as time goes by. The first e-fit that she helps to draw is a vague sketch. She later makes a positive identification of Robert Murat as the man that she saw that night. Several months later, she participates in a new e-fit, now miraculously remembering every facial trace of a man that is very different from the Murat that she recognised earlier on.

20.55 - Another document that weighed in at incriminating Robert Murat was a psychological profile by English experts, which in very general traces stated that his voluntary attitude during the days that followed the crime, helping the investigators and the family, could be the mask of a criminal.

Eduardo Moss
Psychologist

21.12 – These are either theoretical pre-suppositions, or banalities. It’s obvious that they start with statistical analyses, we could call them epidemiological, out of a population, numerous types of behaviours which could prompt the suspicion, a greater or smaller suspicion, on an individual. And nothing more.

21.38 - The Global Media Phenomenon

Cristiano Ronaldo
Football Player

21.42 – We’re all very sad about what happened to Madeleine McCann. Please, if someone has any kind of information, let us know.

Luís Filipe Scolari
Trainer

21.51 – Pray a special prayer, pray at least one Hail Mary all over the country, for Our Lady of Fátima to enlighten our authorities so they can find that little girl.

22.45 – Time went by. The abduction leads led into a blind alley. The family itself started considering the possibility that Maddie was dead.

22.52 - Stalemate in the Investigation

22.54 – The first signs of death come from the family. Exterior signs. We had already considered it but it’s the family that hires a former officer from the South African military, who uses a miraculous machine to find the child’s body on location.

23.16 – South African Daniel Krugel points at a location where Madeleine McCann’s body is supposed to lie. A vast area where nothing was found.

23.12 - The Turnaround in the Investigation

23.29 – The investigation uses two very special dogs that are used by the English and North American police, that have successfully solved over 200 cases. These include the murder of Attracta Harron, an Irishwoman who went missing. The police and the forensic scientists were unsuccessful in finding out what happened to her. The investigators then brought in Eddie, one of the two dogs that were in Portugal, that identified a carbonised piece in the suspect’s car. That piece contained DNA from the missing woman. The dogs that were brought in to help the investigation are great investigators. Eddie is a dog that specialises in finding dead victims and marking locations where dead people have been. Keela is able to detect human blood in such tiny amounts that they elude the investigators.

24.26 – In these police images, we can see Eddie and Keela inspecting the houses where the nine British tourists stayed, and Robert Murat’s house. The dogs only reacted (alerted) in the apartment where the McCanns stayed. Eddie marked (alerted to) cadaver odour in the wardrobe of the McCanns’ bedroom.

24.50 – That was how it was. The dog that marks (alerts to) human cadaver odour marked cadaver odour in this corner, the doors were open when the test was made, and after walking around the parents’ bedroom, he placed his nose in here and marked this area. So according to the expert, a cadaver was here, either on the shelf or on the floor.

25.20 – Eddie also detected the odour of death behind the sofa in the apartment’s living room. Keela is brought in, and she points out a small amount of blood behind that same sofa.

25.49 – At the time when the area behind the sofa was cleaned, there is a body being transported to this location, or it was kept here for a while. That is the indication that exists, there was no blood here, contrary to what was found behind the sofa, and there is the marking that a cadaver was here [indicating the wardrobe shelves].

Martin Grime
Dog Handler

26.34 – The dogs’ investigation continues. They inspect several vehicles, and they only alert to the car that was hired by the McCanns 23 days after Madeleine’s disappearance. Eddie alerts that the car key and the boot had been in contact with a dead body.

27.01 – Keela discovers organic traces for analysis in the boot.

27.23 – The dogs’ reaction is revealing. These dogs have never failed in over 200 cases. The dogs marked two spots in the house: The wardrobe in the parents’ bedroom, and behind the living room sofa.

27.40 – They also signalled the car, that had been rented by the McCanns 23 days after the facts, as well as Kate’s clothes and Madeleine’s soft toy.

27.58 – How was it possible to find a soft toy with cadaver smell in a bed that was not marked by the dogs, and with no indications of Madeleine having slept in it? The dogs’ work could hardly be more revealing.

28.31 – Two weeks ago, there was a radical change in the investigation, tiny traces of blood were found in the apartment. When you heard that the police had found blood in the apartment, how did you react?

29.23 – This is the turnaround in the investigation. The abduction theory becomes less likely than the child’s death. The parents, friends and relatives become suspects.

29.33 – The hypothesis that little Madeleine is dead has somehow gained some consistency.

29.40 – The collected samples are sent to an expert lab in the UK, the Forensic Science Service, in Birmingham. The analyses’ results start being targeted by speculation. The Times is the first newspaper to announce that some of the preliminary results of the analyses on some of the collected material didn’t match Maddie’s DNA, prompting a denial from the lab.

30.20 – Journalist Duarte Levy was one of the authors of this article. He asserts that there were other preliminary reports that identified Madeleine’s blood in the samples, and that were put aside.

Duarte Levy
Journalist

30.32 – For the ‘Times’, we – I say ‘we’ because I worked with Paulo Reis and David Brown – the first article that we wrote was about the blood traces that had been found on the apartment’s wall, and we published that the blood was not Madeleine’s. It was an article that raised some problems, in terms of the FSS’s organisation, but that didn’t prevent us from accessing other preliminary and final reports. At a given time, we had access to a report that was signed by more than ten FSS professionals, which stated the existence of a correspondence of 17 out of 19 alleles in the case of Madeleine McCann. To us, there was more than enough data to state that this was Madeleine’s blood.

31.23 – In order to understand the analyses that were made, we went to the Forensics Institute in Coimbra, where presently similar analyses are carried out, using the Low Copy Number method. When the samples were collected at the Ocean Club apartment, and from the car that had been rented by the McCanns, they were sent to the lab, where the samples were then prepared. Later on, the DNA quantity that existed in the collected material was evaluated. Because the quantity was very small, the Low Copy Number method was used.

31.55 – The samples were increased, and then the DNA markers were signalled. This method has the advantage of working with very small amounts of DNA, but the results don’t always allow for a clear comparison between the victim’s DNA and the collected one. By artificially increasing the DNA quantity for analysis, we also amplify a set of data that can be confused with the markers.

32.24 – The final report that the FSS delivers to the investigation is not conclusive. It establishes that the collected samples may be from Madeleine McCann, but there is no certainty. The most significant is the material that was collected from the car that had been rented 23 days after the child’s disappearance. The preliminary reports mention a correspondence of 15 alleles out of 19, but the problem is that the analyses demonstrate that the material didn’t come from one sole donor, but from at least three.

32.58 – Professor Corte-Real, who met with the FSS experts, and saw the British scientists’ reports and work notes, explains this issue.

Dr Francisco Corte-Real
Vice President, National Forensics Institute

33.09 – When those 15 alleles are included in a mix, where beyond those 15 we can have another 30 or 40 alleles, that means that it includes biological material from several persons. And there it can be much more difficult, much more inconclusive, because we may have a mixture from several persons, including hypothetically, if that happens, we may have several persons from the same family, and that may even give us the idea, in a way, that a certain missing person may be included, and that is not conclusive.

33.46 – Despite the conclusions of the FSS reports, the investigative team’s conviction is not based exclusively on scientific evidence. A normal procedure within criminal investigations, which is explained to us by a reputed forensics medicine expert.

Dr João Pinto da Costa
Forensics Medicine Expert

34.02 – Criminal investigation is not only one aspect. The whole way of being, in terms of the suspect’s attitudes and behaviour, are fundamental, as fundamental as the biological analysis of blood, urine or any other situation. There are other elements that allow for corroboration.

34.29 – The McCanns are summoned for deposition at the Polícia Judiciária in Portimão. During that interrogation, they are made arguidos. Kate McCann refuses to answer all of the questions, and Gerald McCann repeatedly denies the investigators’ conclusions, defending his innocence, and his wife’s.

Carlos Pinto de Abreu
McCanns’ Laywer

34.47 – Today, Kate and Gerry McCann were made arguidos.

34.52 – Their behaviour was a distant behaviour. For example, when they, especially Gerald McCann, when they are shown the dogs’ movie, he didn’t even want to look at the television, saying that it had no value, and that it didn’t show proof of his daughter’s death, and that to him, his daughter was alive.

35.12 – When the McCanns leave the Polícia Judiciária, the Portuguese public opinion starts to turn against them. The Portuguese and British investigators are now convinced that the little girl was the victim of an accident. She died in the apartment and someone made the body disappear.

35.30 – That was assumed by the entire investigation team, which consisted of Portuguese and English people. In September 2007, that is the major conclusion drawn from the investigation. I remind you, concerning that issue of inconclusive tests, that there is an ongoing case in the USA, involving a mother and a missing three-year-old, where there is also cadaver odour in the car boot, and an incomplete DNA profile of the child, and the mother has been arrested for trial, or has already been tried.

36.24 – The investigation’s change of direction prompts the McCanns’ return to the UK. The family, that had always refused to abandon Portugal without clarifying their daughter’s disappearance, decides to return home. The images of the McCann family’s return go around the world. When he sees this image of Gerald McCann carrying one of the twins, Irishman Martin Smith says he recognises in the stance and the manner of holding the child, the man whom he crossed on the night that Madeleine disappeared. He goes to the local police, and gives a statement.

36.59 – It was exactly the same manner and appearance of the man that he saw on the night that Maddie disappeared.

37.04 – The McCann family’s representative, a former spokesman for English prime minister Gordon Brown, pushes all suspicions aside.

Clarence Mitchell
McCann family’s Spokesman

37.42 – Kate McCann’s diary, which was accessed by the investigation, is clear about the importance of such political support. Gordon Brown phones the couple several times, as the diary shows on the 23rd of May.

37.57 - The Disarmed Investigation

38.01 – The McCann case has always worried both countries’ political authorities, even leading Prime Minister Gordon Brown to speak about it with his counterpart, José Sócrates, during the Lisbon summit.

38.15 – The British press repeatedly attacked the Portuguese investigation. Following a reply from Gonçalo Amaral to a former British detective, in an interview to Diário de Notícias, the Polícia Judiciária’s national director dismissed the investigation’s coordinator, with the Justice Minister’s support.

Alípio Ribeiro
PJ’s National Director

38.34 – I’m not going to comment on that matter.

38.36 – But you confirm that he was replaced in the case?

38.37 – Yes. Substituted as the leader.

38.39 – Why?

38.40 – I can’t comment on that now.

38.41 – Was it because of the statements that were published today?

Alberto Costa
Justice Minister

38.44 – It’s an act that belongs to the national director of the Polícia Judiciária, that I approve.

38.48 – Did you influence this dismissal?

38.50 – I don’t want to say anything further about this matter.

38.53 – Gonçalo Amaral is sent back to the headquarters in Faro, and forced to abandon the McCann case investigation.

38.59 – Before I left, someone came to me, I’m not saying who, with a speech about investigations that don’t end, investigations that don’t end in the way that we desire, that do not succeed, and that if this investigation was archived, or if the investigation was dropped, nobody would question it much, or raise any problems about it.

39.26 – Paulo Rebelo is nominated to direct the investigation. He hurries to visit Aldeia da Luz, and to observe the locations where Madeleine McCann disappeared from, showing his intention to carry out the process until its end. A set of rogatory letters are sent to the UK for the interrogation of the witnesses in the process. There is an attempt to schedule a reconstruction. Some witnesses are never questioned again in Portugal, like the Smith family, who said they saw Gerald McCann carrying a child in his arms, towards the sea, at around 10 p.m. on the 3rd of May 2007.

I don't buy it Jackie, they knew what they were doing with sedatives, no doctor would give a dangerous sedative to any child and certainly not their own.
I believe she was taken or she wandered off and met the wrong person, poor little mite.


Hi Maggie/Jackie

I don't think they gave their child sedatives I think she was taken the place was watched every night and whoever took the wee child knew the times they went back to check I dare not think about why she was taken too awful :(

40.04 – The witness who lived near the McCanns’ second home, in Aldeia da Luz, who says she witnessed an uncommon fact about the McCanns’ hire car, where the dogs detected cadaver odour and remains that may belong to Maddie, was not heard, either. This neighbour has signed a document authorising the broadcast of her deposition that identifies her, but fearing threats and pressures, she doesn’t show her face.

40.30 – This is an interesting matter, when I left the Criminal Investigation Department in Portimão, in October 2007, nothing was known about this vehicle, about this issue of the open car boot. We knew that inside the vehicle cadaver odour and bodily fluids had been found, where Madeleine McCann’s DNA profile was extracted from, with 15 alleles. Months later, there is a jurist, who lives nearby, who came to report that after the McCanns arrived at this villa, they saw the car boot open from then on.

41.09 – I drive down this street every day to turn my car around at that end, and every time that I passed the house, and I looked at the car, and the car always had an open boot door, day or night. I often passed at night, and always verified it. It was a fact, I reported it, and that was it.

41.33 – It’s important to report the following: that lady, that jurist, was never heard at the Polícia Judiciária because her deposition was not considered to be relevant, which is strange. While she was not heard, while a rogatory letter was sent to England, relatives of Gerald and Kate McCann came out to say that they had transported, inside this car boot, food from the supermarket, namely a meat package that leaked blood.

42.09 – The great question is how the family heard about the witness, despite the fact that she was not heard by the PJ, and tried to reply to the observed facts.

42.18 – Only a few months later, the investigation is closed. Gonçalo Amaral resigns from the police, writes a book about the case and accepts to return to 5A at the Ocean Club, to demonstrate his conviction that Madeleine McCann died inside this apartment on the 3rd of May 2007.

42.37 – The family’s spokesman accuses him of being an opportunist, who is merely interested in making money.

43.11 – Contrary to what Mr Clarence Mitchell says, I used my knowledge in the investigation, and thus can state with all certainty that Madeleine was not abducted. Just verify the location of the facts, like we are going to, right away.

43.25 - Final Evidence

43.28 – With the help from one of the major experts from the Scientific Police, who worked for the Polícia Judiciária, Alexandre Simas, Gonçalo Amaral intends to prove, first, that it was impossible for the child to be abducted, starting by demonstrating that the indications prove that the apartment’s window and door were not forced.

43.47 - How does one open a door like this, without the key?

Alexandre Simas
Expert (Former Polícia Judiciária)

43.51 – This type of apartment door, normally there are only three possibilities: to extract the lock’s cannon, which didn’t happen, or it would have been reported; a false key, a copy or one that was used without permission; or using a malleable material, as long as it’s not locked, it’s introduced, and it makes the lock go back inside. But when it goes in, even if it did, it would hit this screw. If it hits the screw, no matter how much I force it, it doesn’t jump to open the lock for me.

44.33 – If the door wasn’t opened without a key, the window doesn’t bear any traces of having been forced, either.

44.40 – These windows have a very good characteristic to check if they were forced or not. Being made of lacquered aluminium, any screwdriver, any instrument that is used to make the lock jump, immediately leaves a mark. What we can see here, there is no break-in, the mark that is there belongs to the lock itself as it rotates, sometimes one does this with the lock in place, and it hits there. So, to open this window, all we have to do is this. To close it, it’s impossible, because either one has a magnet on his fingers to pull the window…

45.18 – Another important fact is revealed by the fingerprints that are left on the bedroom window, which the McCanns insist they left closed, and is supposedly found open when the mother notices her daughter is missing. The only fingerprints that are found belong to Kate McCann, and reveal that they were made by opening the window.

45.42 – These three indications mean that there was no abduction, and that is proved. No abductor entered apartment 5A, through the door or through the window.

45.54 – Finally, it was impossible for anyone to leave with the child through the window on his own, without supporting himself on the bed, and leaving traces of abrasion on the window.

46.03 – If I carry a child in my arms, a package, in this case, the window is already open, I have to walk through here, and then I have to place my feet here, I can’t…

46.15 – We tried to prove this difficulty, taking a child through the window, keeping everything the way it was found: the beds, without a trace of being stepped on, and no signs of abrasion on the window sill. It seems to be practically impossible for one single abductor, like the one that Jane Tanner saw, carrying the child on the street.

46.37 – Let’s review: First, the front door and the window were not forced. Second, the window was opened by the mother. Third, it’s impossible for a lone abductor to carry out the child without leaving traces on the beds and on the window.

46.53 – Adding this to the traces that were detected by the dogs, and the sighting that was made by the Smiths, we have a completely different probable scenario. Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5A, and her body was concealed.

47.12 – What do these leads tell us? What means that which the dogs detected, and what can be established about what happened on the 3rd of May 2007?

47.24 – It is behind the sofa, in front of the middle section of the window, that cadaver odour and human blood with Madeleine McCann’s profile is traced. It’s the only place inside the apartment where the findings coincide: human cadaver odour and blood. So, within a policeman’s logic, this is where death may have taken place.

47.49 – What happened to Maddie? There is an hypothesis that can explain all known clues. The child woke up at night, heard her father talking below the living room window, climbed on the sofa, fell and hit her head. The fall, and the possible use of Calpol on the children, by the parents, to keep them asleep while they dined, may have provoked Madeleine’s death.

48.40 – The habit of using Calpol on the children was confirmed by Kate’s father. Later, a man, whom the Smiths identified as Gerald McCann, carried the child towards the beach.

48.55 – What I know tells me that Madeleine McCann died in apartment 5A on the 3rd of May 2007. I am certain that this truth will be established some day. The investigation was brutally interrupted, and a political and hurried archiving took place. There are some people who hide the truth, but sooner or later the varnish will crack and the revelations will appear. Only then will there be justice for Madeleine McCann.

49.25 – The mystery persists. The former inspector believes that some day, the truth will be known. For the time being, all we know is that on the 3rd of May 2007, Madeleine McCann disappeared in Praia da Luz. She was three years old, and she was a happ

That did not happen in this case, Maddie almost certainly died in apartment 5a, and her body removed by Gerry McCann, aided and abetted by at least one member of the so called tapas 7 group members - she died as a result of over sedation, hence why they had to get rid of the body...

Here are the parents enacting their script, trying to trick police into thinking they had nothing to do with her death...

I agree susan/jackie, sadly I think that is probably what happened.

Why did Kate leave her other two babies alone back at apartment 5a, when she went back to the tapas bar, after Maddie was supposedly taken by 'them' ('they have taken her')? Why not use her mobile phone? Why not shout from the veranda of the patio? Everything points to someone else being at the apartment, hence why the vacuum was created by the opening of the front road side door, patio door, bedroom window and steel shutter all being open at the same time!

MADDIE - THE TRUTH OF THE LIE

39.26 – Paulo Rebelo is nominated to direct the investigation.

-----------------------------------------------

I believe this sighting to be true, there is no independent corroborating evidence to prove the Gerry McCann was at the tapas bar at the time he was seen by the Smiths carrying Maddie away down toward the beach, other than from other tapas group members (but not all)..

Kate's first witness statement...

Thursday May 3rd 2007

Yesterday, after the daily routine, Madeleine and the twins went to bed at around 7.30. They were in their respective beds. The interviewee and her husband stayed in their apartment to relax until 8.30pm. She took a bath, did her make-up and drank a glass of New Zealand wine with her husband. Just after 8.30pm, the interviewee and her husband, after checking on their children, joined the other adults of the group at the "TAPAS" restaurant, about 50 metres away, where they had dinner. As usual, every half hour, and given that the building is very close, the interviewee and her husband went to make sure the children were OK. Thus, at around 9pm, her husband went to the apartment to make sure the twins, as well as Madeleine, were OK, then he went back to the restaurant. Her husband said that the children were doing well and that he had bumped into the person with whom he had played tennis, a person who has two children. At the same time, one of the group of friends, Russell, went to see his children, without checking on the interviewee's children.

At the same time, one of the group of friends, Russell, went to see his children, without checking on the interviewee's children.

Gerry McCann used the front roadside door, despite knowing that the patio door on the poolside of the apartment had been left open for ease of access, half an hour or so earlier..

08.45 – At around 9.05 p.m., Matt checks the windows of the various apartments, and finds everything quiet and the windows closed. Between 9.05 and 9.10 p.m., Gerald McCann goes to the apartment, asserts that he entered through the front door, and enters the children’s bedroom. Everything seems well to him. At a later point in time, Gerald will say that he sensed that a stranger was inside the room

If Gerry McCann had sensed a stranger was in the room he would not have left all three children alone, he would have checked the room, the apartment to make sure his children were not in danger! He introduced the 'stranger' scenario to feed the story that somebody had abducted Maddie...

No information exists regarding whether the road side front door to apartment 5a had been left open when the parents went to the tapas bar at around 8.30pm, in addition to the patio door also being left unlocked, or if Gerry McCann exited via the same front roadside door after his 9.10pm check on his family - nor if he left the front roadside door unlocked, or if he locked it..

Matt Oldfield entered apartment 5a via the poolside patio door, and left by the same door during his questionable 9.30pm check...

Kate McCann entered apartment 5a via the poolside patio door during her 10pm check, but it is not known which door she exited before returning to the tapas bar to declare, 'they've taken her, they've taken her, Maddie is gone'...
