GRIM news. But as a parent, would you now want the body to put and end to things?

Police in Portugal have acknowledged for the first time that missing Madeleine McCann may be dead.

Speaking to the BBC, one of the detectives leading the investigation said new evidence had given “intensity” to the possibility she was killed.

Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa said Kate and Gerry McCann were not being considered as suspects following recent rumours they were under suspicion.

Madeleine vanished 100 days ago in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz.

Forensic scientists

Mr Sousa said renewed searches by detectives with British sniffer dogs have revealed clues which could point to Madeleine’s death.

He was referring to traces of blood found inside the apartment room where Madeleine was sleeping, which are now being analysed by forensic scientists in Britain.
