This website is well worth looking into.
It has the most complete archive of data on the Madeleine McCann story that I have ever seen. There are numerous photos and diagrams of the pertinent
locations in the case and quite a large amount of interesting, relevant press coverage, including statements made at various times by the McCanns
themselves and people that they spoke to or contacted following Madeleine's disappearance.
There are some very good analytical pieces from journalistic sources as well as a link to an English language narration of Gonçalo Amaral's
presentation of the case, The Truth of the Lie.
The only thing that the Portugese police haven't advanced is a credible scenario to explain how British tourists from out of town could have hidden a
dead body somewhere for twenty-three days, then retrieved it in their rental car for transport to some final hidden destination.
One such scenario would involve the missing blue sports bag presumably. Was it used to hide Madeleine's body in the cupboard (marked by the cadaver
dog in Kate and Gerry's bedroom) during the period immediately following the discovery of Madeleine's absence? Maybe, but then what?
The man seen by the Smith's, carrying a child in the direction of the beach at quite some distance from the Ocean Club, before the alarm was
. They think it was Gerry, but how could that be if he was only absent from the tapas bar for a brief period to check the kids and to talk
to Jeremy Wilkins in the street?
When you read the various statements made by friends of the McCanns, especially considering that they are all medical personel, who are, as we know,
special beings devoid of the sort of faults and laziness that cause other people to take shortcuts in life and occasionally break the rules, one
wonders if one is witnessing a rare (as grains of sand) example of the "cluster butt cover".
Sort of like stampeding zebras, all you see is stripes.
And then there is that lying two faced cadaver dog. I'm going to be digesting the material on this website for a while, I can see.
