Madeleine McCann: The Disappearance Of Rui Pedro Teixeira Mendonca

by | 6th, March 2011

MADELEINE McCann is back in the news. News International, having secured the newspaper rights to the McCanns’ official book, publish a story in the News of The World that suspect Raymond Hewlett said his wife would ‘go mental’ if she was asked about the missing girl in a dramatic video recorded before his death ”.

This would be Mariana Schmuecker, who last week was telling the NoTW :

When the News of the World confronted her the callous German just snarled: “Clear off! I’m sick to death of hearing about Maddie McCann!”

Does the paper wish for an innocent woman to be driven mental ”? Last week, the paper delivered this line:

But Mariana, who suddenly shipped off to Morocco with Hewlett just three weeks after Maddie’s disappearance, has stayed tight- lipped – even about her partner’s flawed alibi.

Is this not as suggestion of guilt by association with a convicted sex  criminal who was also not guilty of kidnapping the child and who despite being called the Maddie paedo and Maddie Pervert ” in the tabloids claims he never met the girl?

SUN : Why don’t you eliminate yourself from the inquiry for the sake of the McCanns?
HEWLETT: I don’t have to speak to you. F*** off.

He  added :

“I have never seen her and anyone who says anything different is wrong.”

This week, the paper has more no news:

Convicted paedophile Hewlett was tracked down to a German hospital by a British couple who met him on holiday in Portugal. In a tense video, the couple confront Hewlett and tell him they know of his paedo past – and ask him if he was involved in Madeleine’s disappearance from an apartment in Praia da Luz on the Algarve in May 2007.

What did he say?

He replies: “You’re joking. How would I know about that?”

What their next question is, we are not told. We just get news we heard back in June 2009 .

Hewlett then launches into a rambling alibi, during which he claims he was at a market with German wife Mariana Schmuecker on the day Madeleine vanished – except the market is held on Saturdays and the little girl went missing on a Thursday.

Does he need an alibi?

Terrified the couple are going to speak to his wife, Hewlett adds: “I mean, you going… going to repeat all this to Mariana about this, about this kid? She’ll go mental.”

Maybe Mariana will go mental and tell the couple who just happened to “track down” Hewlett to a place the Sun had already visited and tell what she told the paper: “Clear off!”

But the best bit about the story is the lead photo, which shows a dying Hewlett hooked up to any oxygen mask as he lies on
