Madeleine McCann: Kate McCann Not Busted, Gerry’s Computer And Dead DNA

by | 17th, October 2007

MADDY WATCH Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

THE SUN front page: “MADDIE SENSATION COPS SEIZE GERRY’S COMPUTER. Swoop as he says: “She may be dead”

Not Gerry McCann’s home computer, rather one he used while in Portugal

Page 5: “PROBE ON PC” The computer is said to have been “hired” (the Sun’s quotation marks) by “cardiologist” Gerry. Thrillingly, the computer “could contain correspondence with high-profile supporters such as David Beckham, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling”

“Kate’s mum: She’s being persecuted for looking like a waif” “Waif-like” Kate McCann’s mother Susan Healy hears her daughter tell her: “If I weighed another 2st, had a bigger bosom and looked more maternal people would be more sympathetic”

Can she try?

Says Susan: “She has always had that kind of build and has never carried any weight”

Page 6: “PERSECUTION OF MY KATE” “Pencil-thin” Kate is fells persecuted.

Says Susan: “Kate and Gerry are as innocent as you or I”

Says Susan’s husband Brian: “I have heard nothing yet to convince me that Madeleine is not still alive”

“’MADDY PROBABLY DEAD’” Says Clarence Mitchell: “Gerry and Kate are realistic enough to know there’s a probability she is dead”

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “MADELEINE PARENTS CAR HID A CORPSE. It was under carpet in boot say police”

“Bodily fluids” have been found in the Renault Scenic used by the McCanns in Portugal. Says a source: “These are bodily fluids that could only come from a corpse. Police are waiting for the results to confirm the identity of the DNA

More DNA. More tests. More talk about DNA tests

Pages 2 and 3: Says a source, they are “innocent. And: “If evidence like this had been found the implications would be serious. Let’s just say they would not be sitting at their home in Leicestershire”

Comments Clarence Mitchell: “We simply cannot comment on unsubstantiated reports”

“She probably IS dead, say parents”. Kate and Gerry are “anguished”. Clarence Mitchell says Kate and Gerry
