Meet Praia da Luz estate agent Angus Symington (pictured). Look like anyone? Robert Murat, perhaps?

“Their resemblance shows that witnesses who claim they saw Mr Murat outside the McCanns’ apartment on the night Madeleine vanished may have named the wrong man. Expatriate Mr Murat has always insisted he was with his mother”

Doesn’t Robert Murat also look like David Payne ?

Says Robert Murat of Symington: “I’m amazed by the likeness, The hairline and the nose, it could be me. Just the chin is different. This guy has every reason to be at the Ocean Club. Remember people work. I wouldn’t want what happened to me to happen to anyone else”

Says Mr Murat’s uncle Ralph Eveleigh: “Bloody hell it’s Robert. They are very similar”

The WORLD’S BEST NEWSPAPER says “The lookalikes could force police into a total rethink of their eight-month investigation”

Or the police could just speak with Mr Symington. Says he: “I had been away in England for 10 days and came back the day before Madeleine went missing. I was here on the day, and for a few days following, but then I left again for a week. I categorically wasn’t around on the night she vanished. I left Praia da Luz at close of business at 6pm to go home. It couldn’t have been me. The first I was aware of the story was when I arrived at work the next day”

So how will this lookalike put Mr Murat in the clear?

Angus Symington is British. He is an estate agent in Praia da Luz. He looks not a lot unlike Robert Murat

But Symington says he wasn’t there. So how could his looking like Murat be relevant?


Two lookalikes. Angus Symington. David Payne. Anyone else look like Robert Murat, apart from Robert Murat..?

A “source” close to the investigation “said it mans indetification evidence againt Mrs Murat, 34, is worthless”

How so? Mr Symington says he was elsewhere and is not a suspect. And Mr Payne was dining with the McCanns. Robert Murat say he was at home all night…

THE SUN : “Murat has holds double”

Angus Symington again

“MADDIE WEIRDO HAD ACCOMPLICE 2nd prowler spotted”

The weirdo looks like Killer Bob from Twin Peaks, George Harrison and a
