Madeleine McCann – Sunday Express: ‘I Killed Maddie, You’re Next’
MADELEINE McCANN: The Sunday Express front page leads with the sensational headline: “I killed Maddie, you’re next.”
The story is that British woman Clara Corrigan claims that the man who stabbed her in Portugal screamed: “I killed Madeline McCann and I’m going to kill you.”
This “EXCLUSIVE” was published on May 31 by the Portugal Resident:
Released from hospital with her lower back and buttocks swathed in bandages, Albufeira stabbing victim Clara Corrigan has talked to journalists about the frenzied attack suffered last Thursday and revealed that her British assailant shouted “I killed Maddie McCann and I am going to kill you” as he stabbed her repeatedly.
The story of the then 40-year-old from Liverpool was first reported by the Correio da Manhã newspaper:
“He was in a bar with friends. We had some drinks and he must have put something in my drink because I don’t remember anything more. I woke up with him on top of me, suffocating me. Then he shouted “I killed Maddie McCann and I am going to kill you”.
Her 22-year-old attacked is known only as Shane.
