Madeleine McCann: Blood On The Walls And Urs Hans Von Aesch

by | 6th, August 2007

IN the McCanns’ apartment:

Police are said to believe the discovery of blood points to Madeleine dying at the flat, possibly in the course of being abducted. The newspaper Jornal De Noticias reported:

“This evidence locates Madeleine’s death inside the apartment, but the investigators are still not certain it was murder, despite the fact that forensic experts have revealed that somebody did try to erase the blood traces.

“The theory most favoured by detectives to explain Maddy’s death – now taken as almost certain – is that it involved an accident.

“The investigators are convinced that the blood belongs to Madeleine, but they are still holding back the detailed results of the tests until their suspicions are confirmed.”


The development came as Interpol alerted Portuguese police to a potential link to a Swiss child abductor who was in the Praia de Luz area when Madeleine went missing.

Urs Hans Von Aesch, 67, who killed himself last week, is the prime suspect in the disappearance of five-year-old Ylenia Lenhard.

The links between Ylenia and Madeleine are striking – they are only a year apart in age, both are blonde and both are of a similar build and height.

A source close to the investigation said those leading the manhunt had been told of “certain similarities” between the two abductions.
