Whilst the local residents and police were searching for their daughter, Kate and Gerry left them to it and toured the world, gaining celebrity status, aided by people such as The Pope, J K Rowling, Richard Branson, David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Sir Philip Green to name but a few. They also collected millions of pounds from public donations along the way which has helped to pay their mortgage.
The McCanns and the winning trio
Who's who in Team McCann?
Whilst the McCanns were globetrotting around the world, meeting the Pope and visiting the Whitehouse, the Portuguese police were following up false trails of 'sightings' all over Europe.
It was 3 months before the British Police brought in their sniffer dogs, Eddie and Keela (who have a 100% success rate), who detected blood and the scent of death which, belatedly, sent the investigation into a different direction - away from investigating an abductor and Robert Murat, who was wrongly framed.
The McCanns have since admitted they did not physically search for Madeleine. Why would they, though, when the evidence points to Madeleine having died in their apartment and that there was no abductor? For the cadaver odour to develop, Maddie would have to be dead for around 2 hours and the McCanns said they were checking on their children every 30 minutes, which means they must have seen Maddie's body during their checks, especially as there was blood splattered on the walls and floor. Is it really credible that an abductor would break in and kill Maddie then hang around for 2 hours (during the checks by the parents) for the death scent to develop, then clean up the apartment and take a dead child through a jemmied window, that wasn't jemmied, and which only contained Kate's fingerprints - and then walk though the streets of Praia da Luz towards the beach, dressed like Gerry McCann? Didn't Kate McCann say in her Panorama interview that the alledged abductor only had a "small window of opportunity"? Didn't she also say that she thought the family had been watched for a number of days? Why leave the children on their own then?
Here's the link to the clip where she said it on Panorama
Summary of Gonçalo Amaral's book: The truth of the lie
Given that the Portuguese Police were sent on a wild goose chase by Team McCann, Tony Blair and the British government and their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell (who has been involved with the mysterious/ controversial/ unresolved, deaths of Dr David Kelly, Princess Diana, Milly Dowler, and Jill Dando), how can the PJ now be described as 'bungling' and 'incompetent' by our government and British media who, themselves, refuse to tell the truth and insist on quoting that Maddie was snatched when there is clear evidence of her death?
Clarence Mitchell: David Kelly/Hutton Enquiry
Given the nature of these articles below, it could be said that the Portuguese Police didn't stand a chance against the British Government's sinister involvement.
If Maddie had died by accident, why the need for the government to help cover it up?
Question 41. Is it true that in England you even considered handing over Madeleine’s custody to a relative?
