Reliving Madeleine McCann’s Missing Moments

The Express is watching the McCanns. And it transcribes the “agonising moment” when Kate McCann realised her daughter had gone. “We’ve let her down, we’ve let her down,” she sobs. “

What light this sheds on the case is unclear. But the Express realises that no detail, however trivial, invasive and voyeuristic should be overlooked.

And it duly delivers the “extraordinary details” as told by a neighbour of the McCanns in Praia da Luz. This is “mum’s amazing outburst”.

Pamela Fenn, 81, lives in the flat above where the McCanns were staying. She says two night before Madeleine went missing she heard a toddler crying “Daddy, daddy” constantly between 10:30 and 11:45pm.

The crying is said to have stopped when the parents retuned to the apartment.

And on the night Madeleine went missing, Mrs Fenn also says she heard crying from below.

The sound of children crying… What can it mean?

Does the Mirror know? While the Express watches the parents, the Mirror is watching the detectives.

And it senses news. A development. The Mirror’s front page goes: “MADELEINE COPS: ‘She died by accident in the flat.’”

A source says the Portuguese police think Madeleine is dead and that it happened in the flat.

“COPS: WE HAVE THE EVIDENCE,” says another headline. And readers learn that the three detectives leading the search for Madeleine “insist they have evidence to show she died in her parents’ flat”.

Given Portugal’s secrecy laws, it seems odd that a meeting between the top three detectives should be accidentally leaked to the press.

It was only yesterday we heard the police spokesman say that all lines of enquiry remain open. We were told that the police have no firm evidence and if they did they would make an arrest.

Ad now they have “evidence”, although of what, remains to be deduced…
