The McCanns, a dodgy Portuguese lawyer called Marcos Alexandre Aragão Correia, and a brilliant detective, Gonçalo Amaral

by Tony Bennett

"Who is this ‘lady’ who claims to have been beaten up by Amaral’s detective? Well, her name is Leonor Cipriano, a name that should send shivers down all our spines."

Have the McCanns been using the ‘Helping to Find Madeleine Trust Fund’ to pay a dodgy Portuguese lawyer, Marcos Aragão Correia, (a) to promote the theory that Madeleine was abducted by a gang of paedophiles and (b) to bring a politically-motivated prosecution against Gonçalo Amaral, the detective who brilliantly solved the murder of Joana Cipriano and who for the first five months led the investigation into why Madeleine McCann was reported missing?

Executive Summary

There is no evidence that Madeleine McCann was abducted. However, there is much forensic and circumstantial evidence that she died in Apartment 5A in Praia da Luz, the McCanns’ apartment, and that her parents, possibly with help from some of their friends, hid or disposed of her body.

A dodgy, possibly corrupt, Portuguese lawyer called Marcos Aragão Correia was contacted by the private detective agency, Método 3, allegedly investigating Madeleine’s disappearance and supposedly trying to find her. Between them, Método 3 and Mr Aragão Correia cooked up a story saying that they had received information from the underworld that Madeleine had been abducted, raped and killed - and her body dumped in a ‘murky lake’. Mr Correio then also claimed to have had a ‘supernatural indication’ or ‘vision’ that pointed to the Arade Dam as a place to look for the body. A very public search was conducted there with the media on hand to record every discovery, for example a 17-foot ‘knotted cord’ and the ‘a bag of bones’. These ‘discoveries’ helped to promote the theory that Madeleine was abducted by a paedophile. Later - in mysterious circumstances - the same dodgy lawyer was appointed by Leonor Cipriano, the evil murderer of her 8-year-old daughter Joana Cipriano, to represent her in her claim that she had been tortured and beaten by four police officers under the control of Gonçalo Amaral, who was the senior investigating officer who secured her conviction for murdering - together with her brother and the girl’s own uncle - her own daughter. The lawyer told a court in Faro that he had been asked by Método 3 to represent Leonor Cipriano and in particular to ‘get’ Gonçalo Amaral. Método 3 denied this.

The Helping to Find Madeleine Fund was ostensibly set up to find Madeleine. It raised millions of pounds from the general public. Hundreds of thousands of pounds were used from that fund to pay Método 3, on the pretext that they were using that money to try to find Madeleine. In fact some of that money was being used to fund Aragão Corriea (a) to make a bogus claim that he ‘knew’ Madeleine had been raped, killed and then thrown into a reservoir (b) to conduct a bogus search for Madeleine with the media on hand to record discoveries allegedly made during the search and (c) to use every endeavour to ‘nail’ Gonçalo Amaral on a bogus charge of being directly involved in torturing and beating Leonor Cipriano.

It is probable that the McCanns knew how the Helping to Find Madeleine money was being spent and that they knew it was being used to fund the various activities of Mr Aragão Correio.
