The tale of Madeleine’s disappearance struck a chord with many, many people all over the world. A pretty young girl, presumably kidnapped, to Goddess knows what abhorrent ends – it hardly bears thimking about.
Maddy’s parents seemed to hold it together better than many would have done – they have delivered numerous coherent appeals for information, and they have stuck to their opinion that Maddy is not dead – that she is being held against her will somewhere.
I don’t want to diss the McCann’s approach and mindset. This is how they want do deal with the tragedy, and I completely understand. Is Maddy alive or dead? I don’t know. And my opinion is worthless anyway.
But now the twist in the tale has come… the Portugese police think they have sufficient evidence to point to the McCanns killing Maddy (possibly/probably by accident), then using a hire car to dispose of the corpse. I’m not an insider, I know nothing – but does this evidence really exist? If so, the McCanns are cold, calculating – all the waterworks at press conferences were crocodile tears – the Portugese authorities feel their evidence is very compelling – Goddess help the McCanns, if they deserve it.
This tale struck heart-strings all over the world. Let me know what you all think on this matter. It’s a complicated case, and some fresh insights are more than welcome.
