Guilty until proven innocent
How Alex West of The Sun confronted Raymond Hewlett
THE SUN: Can you speak to us about Madeleine McCann?
HEWLETT: I don't know what you're talking about.
SUN: Did you have anything to do with the disappearance of Madeleine McCann?
HEWLETT: No answer
SUN: Could you tell us where you were when Madeleine McCann disappeared?
HEWLETT: It's got nothing to do with you.
SUN: Why don't you eliminate yourself from the inquiry for the sake of the McCanns?
HEWLETT: I don't have to speak to you. F*** off.
SUN: Why haven't you spoken to the detectives?
HEWLETT: I will. Just f*** off out of here. I've done nothing wrong.
SUN: Well, you've been on the run for more than 30 years and you're wanted for questioning by West Yorks Police.
HEWLETT: What for? I don't believe it.
SUN: A sexual assault on an eight-year-old girl in 1975.
At this point Hewlett, who lives in Aachen with partner Mariana, 33, and their six kids, let fly with another four-letter volley before leaping from the wheelchair and dashing inside the hospital.
Hewlett, did you kill Madeleine McCann behind the sofa in apartment 5a whilst her parents were out having a meal and getting drunk?
Did you sedate her home-alone twin siblings so that they would be unaware of you killing their sister?
Did you leave Maddie's body behind the sofa for 90 minutes to develop cadaver odour?
Did you then put her in a blue sports bag, which wasn't big enough to hide a tennis racket, and put her in the McCanns wardrobe before making off with her through the jemmied window that wasn't jemmied?
Hewlett, did you leave Kate's fingerprints all over the shutters when you took Maddie?
Were you wearing gloves and entirely wrapped in clingfilm during all this time as you didn't leave any of your own fingerprints or DNA?
Did you wear Kate's black and white check trousers whilst you carried out this dastardly deed?
Did you then return 3 weeks later to put Maddie's DNA in the McCanns's hire car?
Why don't you incriminate yourself in this inquiry for the sake of the McCanns?
