Madeleine McCann: In Morocco, Killed By Steps And The 6ixth Sense

by | 1st, October 2007

MADDYWATCH Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann.

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “MADELEINE: SHE IS IN MOROCCO. I saw her, says reliable new witness…but police says she fell down steps.”

A non sequitur to get the Madeleine McCann week underway.

THE WORLD’S BEST NEWSPAPER hears Samantha Peart say that she saw a girl who looked like Madeleine in Morocco on June 10. She reported it to police, who did “nothing”.

Mrs Peart’s husband is a “stockbroker”. Gerry McCann is a “consultant cardiologist”. Daily Express readers should insert there profession [here].

And the latest theory is that Madeleine died in an accident she fell down some steps.

Can Madeleine cement her place as the Express’ new Princess Diana, who also died in an accident (?), the paper finds it hard to believe happened?

Page 4 and 5: “Now police say she fell down the steps.”

Page 5 is split in two: “SHE’S DEAD…” and “SHE’S ALIVE”.

DAILY MIRROR pages 4 and 5: Kate and Gerry McCann are “linked in anguish”.


Kate and Gerry McCann are in church. They go to church a lot. We always see them go. Father Keith Tomlinson asks: “I think I’m right it saying it’s been 150 days, 150 nights, since that terrible day…We pray for Madeleine and her family.”

“STEPS PLUNGE SLUR” Portuguese police think Madeleine fell down a flight of stairs at their holiday flat. A “senior police source” says they are “100 per cent certain” the girl stumbled down ten steps head first. He adds: “The only thing to investigate is how the body disappeared.”

Says Clarence Mitchell: “It’s ludicrous. Leaks appear on a daily basis. It’s hurtful.” Mr Mitchell likes the word “ludicrous”.
