Scotland Yard has named 12 British suspects in Madeleine McCann case

IN a ‘last chance’ investigation, Scotland Yard detectives said today that they believe there is a chance Madeleine McCann could still be alive.

In a press conference on July 4, officials revealed they have identified 38 persons of interest, 12 of whom are British and some of whom may be living in Spain. All were in Portugal at the time of McCann’s disappearance.

One of the suspects named was Urs Hans Von Aesch, a Swiss man who lived in Spain. He was a known paedophile who took his own life after killing a five-year old Swiss girl, just three months after McCann’s disappearance.

Investigators have no evidence  to suggest McCann was murdered.

Young Madeleine McCann went missing in 2007 in Praia da Luz, Portugal, when her parents went out for drinks at the bar of the resort where they were staying.

  1. If there’s no evidence to believe she’s dead, who’s was the blood found in the apartment, and why did DNA found in the boot of McCann’s car test positive? Why did the vatican remove MM’s “missing” banner from their website after Kate’s visit to a catholic priest? And why wouldn’t KMcC answer most of the police questions?

  2. I cannot see how the poor soul can be alive.
    How they can say there is no evidence to show she could be dead beggars belief. Too many people not speaking the truth about this.

    Looks like another cover up job to me.

  3. A “person of interest” is not the same as a “suspect”. The Met were very careful in the language they used in the announcement. The British red top press have then added a lot of their own details, which may not be correct.

  4. And today the Portuguese are saying almost the exact opposite. “Portugal’s top lawyer yesterday poured scorn on Scotland Yard’s investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Attorney General Joana Marques Vidal said officers from London had no right to operate in Portugal and cannot question, interview or arrest anyone. Her comments are in stark contrast to the Metropolitan Police’s upbeat announcement on Thursday of ‘genuinely new’ leads in the six-year-old case and that arrests could be made within weeks.” As with all aspects of this case, it depends who you want to believe. Even the Telegraph yesterday printed something and then changed it within half a hour – but not before screen shots had been taken. If we cannot trust the broadsheets, where do we go ?
