    Default Madeleine McCann - did he or didn't he?

    Sisters tell police - we say Murat near the apartment
    Saturday December 29, 2007
    By Martin Evans in Praia da Luz
    TWO fresh witnesses have told police investigating Madeleine McCann’s disappearance they saw suspect Robert Murat in Praia da Luz on the night she vanished.

    The sisters say Murat was outside the Ocean Club complex half an hour after the girl was reported missing from her family’s holiday flat there on the night of May 3.

    They bring to eight the total number of witnesses to contradict Murat’s claim that he had spent all that evening at home with his mother.

    Annie Wiltshire, 58, and Jayne Jensen, 54, both from Kent, reported their suspicions to Leicestershire police in May.

    They had gone to the Portuguese resort on April 21 for a two-week holiday in the Ocean Club complex.

    On the afternoon of May 3 they noticed two men acting suspiciously on the balcony of an apparently empty apartment overlooking the complex’s swimming pool. At around 10.30 that night they noticed a man standing and smoking a cigarette in the reception area.

    IMO Murat seems like someone who should stay high on the list. He and his girlfriend are just a bit too creepy.

    Default Pedophile Not Involved in Madeleine McCann Case

    So, they have eliminated 52 known sex offenders.

    The PI sure didn't come through with his earth shattering prediction. What a jerk!

    Pedophile Not Involved in Madeleine McCann Case

    Atlanta, GA 12/28/2007 09:46 PM GMT (FINDITT)

    The last pedophile suspect has been ruled out of the Madeleine McCann case. Police tracked down all British pedophiles with a link to the Algarve, where Madeleine went missing on May 3, and it seems that the 52 sex offenders have been cleared.

    Police sources say all sex offenders in Portugal at the time Madeleine was taken “have now been acquitted.” The 4-year-old’s parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, remain suspects.

    The couple recently made an appeal to the public to come forward with any information in their daughter’s abduction. Nearly 350 calls were placed with sources giving information. Gerry McCann said detectives were looking through them with a “fine tooth comb.”

    No, he didn't, and how irresponsible of him to say what he did TO THE PUBLIC about having her home for Christmas!
    It's probably too late to get justice for JonBenét. Maybe it always was. But knowing where things went wrong is the first step to not going there again. **-- Alan Prendergast-Dec 21, 2006--**

    If, and that one big IF he really did know something then he as much as assured that poor little Madeleine was going to NOT be found. I just could not believe that he would say something like that. Jerk is a very mild term for him. What? Didn't he think these pedos watched TV or read the paper?

    That poor poor little girl.

    Very irresponsible of this Private Detective Marco to build everyone's hopes up like that. I'm wondering why we're not reading more about him and this false statement, Little?

    These two sisters claim to have seen Murat at the Ocean Club half an hour after Maddie was found missing. I personally don't feel this is enough time for him to have carried Maddie away from the resort, hidden her, and then reappear back at the Club. If he is responsible, he must have dropped Maddie off somewhere close to the Ocean Club, and hastened back again. His mother may have lied for him (?).

    Something is just not right with this picture.

    Just my opinion.

    Interesting - he's on another case now.
    I have no idea how valid these media reports are so take them for what they are worth.

    Plush New HQ For McCann Private Eyes
    By Alex Watts
    In Barcelona Updated:18:11, Thursday December 20, 2007

    Private detectives hired to search for Madeleine McCann have moved to plush new offices as questions emerge about whether they are giving good value for money.

    People who donated to the Find Madeleine Fund are seeing Metodo 3 pocket £50,000-a-month of their cash - without any apparent breakthrough.

    The group has not yet produced any evidence to back their claims that they know who took the girl.

    Maddy detective takes on new case
    By Lori Campbell And Tom Worden Lori.Campbell@Sundaymirror.Co.Uk 23/12/2007
    The private detective who vowed to bring Madeleine McCann home by Christmas has been working on a different case.
    Francisco Marco, head of Spanish agency Metodo 3, told earlier this month how he was sure the four-year-old was alive - and said he was close to returning her to distraught parents Kate and Gerry.

    But the Sunday Mirror can reveal he took himself off the investigation last week and travelled abroad on a separate case. A source at his Barcelona HQ said: "He has been out of the country on business not to do with Madeleine, on another case altogether."

    And despite his recent claims of being "very close" to rescuing Madeleine from her kidnappers, Marco was yesterday at home.

    McCann detective (Metodo 3) Scandal
    Daily Mail

    The private detectives hunting for Madeleine McCann were once arrested in a phone-tapping scandal linked to leading politicians and businessmen.

    Five senior members of the family-run firm Metodo 3 – including director-general Francisco Marco, who is liaising with Kate and Gerry McCann – were held amid claims of industrial and political espionage.

    Mr Marco's mother, Maria Fernandez Lado, 57, who founded the agency 23 years ago, was pictured in handcuffs after being arrested as she handed a client a cassette allegedly containing a phone-tapped conversation.
