German prisoner identified as key suspect in Madeleine McCann disappearance - BBC News

A German prisoner has been identified as a new suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from a holiday resort in Portugal 13 years ago.

The man in his 40s is a convicted sex offender who had been living in the Algarve at the time, travelling around in a camper van.

Detectives in Germany have made a television appeal for more information. Madeleine McCann was three years old when she went missing from Praia da Luz in 2007.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Home Affairs Correspondent Daniel Sandford.

Whether the parents were involved or not, they should've been charged with neglect! Leaving young children unattended🙄

The biggest breakthrough was when the Portuguese Police identified her completely dodgy parents as N0.1 suspects..

Didn't you notice that all of this breakthroughs happen always around Madeline's birthday.
There's only 2 viable suspects and they ain't German.

Bollocks, we know what happened.
If this turns out correct, why did they obstruct police ,dismiss sniffer dogs, refuse lie detector?
We all know what happened. Her parents either killed her or sold her. End of story.

Cadaver dogs do not lie. Why was her scent all over the apartment, the mother's clothes and then in the family rental car weeks later? Answer this and we may believe you..

Whether or not this guy is guilty is not going to change the fact that the parents left a 3 year old without supervision while they were drinking in a bar! May they feel guilt for the rest of their lives.

The parents did it they we're suspicious from the beginning it took them 13 years to cover up more lies blaming others who wasn't even involved nice one UK good job RIP MADDIE!!

How have they got this breaking news? Or is it simply that Operation Grange has ran out of money 🤔

Funny how every “new lead” like this new one goes NOWHERE.

- The McCann’s are on record saying that Madeline had “perfect little genitals.”
- Police dogs literally smelt death at the apartment Madeline was “sleeping” in.
- Blood was then found in the boot of the McCann’s rental car.
- The McCann’s then suddenly CHANGE THEIR STORY.
- The McCann’s then squeezed every penny from the public and rarely, if ever, cried or broke down when talking about Madeline.

The McCann’s STINK to high heaven.
Guilty or not, they’re terrible parents.

I just don't understand why any parent would sit in a restaurant with friends leaving children alone and checking every 15 mins if it WAS 15 mins because everyone knows when you're eating and conversing with friends time always distorts, when taking my children on holiday if they were tired or if it was bedtime then that's the end of the night we would sit on the balcony but NEVER leave them unattended especially in a villa next to a main road!!!!!
for godsake its 13 years ago, just let it go!

key suspect her mum and dad sniffer dog proved it blood proved it sigh bet them two are laughing
This is convenient, isn't it?
Emma Raven
Emma Raven:
I've always thought the parents should have been forced to do a lie detector test. Their behavior was suspicious straight after, such bad acting.

They should have also been slapped with a child neglect lawsuit as well and the twins taken from their custody
Paul Duffield

Every year a new suspect is brought up , most either dead or in prison , to justify the amount being spent , this will just fizzle out like the rest , remember that Scotland yard are only investigating an abduction, nothing else .

there’s something dodgy about this
They always bring this case up when they want to remove UK's attention from something else.

I bet if Madeline McCanns parents weren't wealthy the police would not have been researching this after all these years.

Look into John and Tony Podesta !! They fit the exact description of the initial efits police had which suddenly (conveniently) were "disregarded". AND were in the area at the time!

Surely, if a child goes missing the #1 thing to look for is what vehicles were in the area?

After 13 years, after all this investigation have they pinpointed a very specific vehicle?

I'm sceptical to say the least.

God I hope she is alive.
I still think the parents had a lot to do with her 'disappearance'
The blood found within the apartment as well as human cadaver death traces suggest that SOMEONE died in that apartment and an effrot was made to clean it up. No one has ever been recorded to have died in the apartment before May 2007 so who was it that died if it wasn't Madeleine?

Its taken 13 yrs to ask questions about a hobo with convictions living in a camper van in PDL at the time of the incident?? Remember the cadaver dogs also sniffing out the blood in the appartment? Sounds like this prisoner is being used as a scape goat and J&K just want closure so they dont care what happens to him as long as this story goes away.
Omg are you people for real? Its all worth noting ! Irelevant.
