Madeleine McCann: The Super Bock Theory

MADELEINE McCann: the Sunday Express has Our Maddie on her usual place: the front page.



The headline is sensational. But which Maddie Suspect? Which shirt? Found by whom?

A FORMER Scotland Yard detective has uncovered a sensational clue that could help solve the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Peter Bleksley believes the shirt worn by the prime suspect was a rare design produced by beer company Super Bock.

“However, I think a more likely explanation could be that the man was wearing one of these Super Bock promotional T-shirts.”

More likely? So. He hasn’t found the top worn by the suspect, then?
