Madeleine McCann was killed soon after she was kidnapped, a German prosecutor told The Times as it was reported that the prime suspect had boasted that he would “document” the abduction of a child.
Police have learned that Christian Brückner discussed kidnapping, raping, and killing a girl chatting with another pedophile online. He graphically described his wish to “catch something little and use it for days,” the thetimes.co.uk reported.
However, Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann are said to have raised concerns days after prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters spoke of evidence he has against Christian Brueckner; the McCanns can’t understand why Brueckner has not been quizzed.
A family friend asked, “If Mr. Wolters has got any significant evidence, we cannot understand why the key suspect is not being questioned.
If the prosecutors are intent that Brueckner is a genuine person of interest to be questioned and possibly charged over Madeleine’s disappearance, why has this action not been taken?” the Mirror Online reported.
“Madeleine McCann was a 3-year-old British toddler when she went missing on the evening of May 3, 2007, during a family holiday trip in Portugal. Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, were considered suspects during the height of the Portuguese police investigation but have since been cleared.
The McCanns have used private investigators in addition to the Portuguese investigation, and in 2011 they received even more assistance from Scotland Yard, which launched its own inquiry, called Operation Grange. Even though the 10th anniversary of her disappearance passed in May 2017, Madeleine is still one of the most famous missing-persons cases in the U.K. and Portugal,” Biography reports.
As noted, the parents were originally considered persons of interest but have long since been cleared of any wrongdoing. As noted, they have forgone an exhaustive investigation of the tragic case; it is difficult to imagine the sadness they have endured.
