Madeleine McCann: Kate McCann Sobs, Gerry McCann Points And 14 Questions

by | 25th, October 2007

MADDY WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

DAILY MIRROR front page: “KATE’S TORMENT – ‘I think she is being held by someone in their Madeleine’s mummy I feel in my heart she’s out there’”

“Distraught” Kate McCann is on Spanish TV. She is being interviewed. Says she: “I don’t know how anyone could harm anyone as beautiful as Madeleine”

Pages 4 and 5: “TEARS OF KATE – After six months of holding her heartbreak in check..Madeleine’s mum breaks down on TV”

Three pictures of Kate McCann:

“SO EMPTY: Kate tries to explain her loss on TV”
“TOO MUCH: She can’t hold back the tears”
“SOBBING: Kate and Gerry on TV”

“14 questions Portuguese police are flying to Britain to out to the McCanns and friends” – So reports Portuguese newspaper 24 Horas. Why would the police publish the questions and allow the McCanns and their friends to prepare answers? Why only – or as many as – 14 questions? Unless these are questions made up by the media, questions the police are “expected” to ask…

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “MADELEINE – POLICE WANT ANSWERS TO 14 QUESTIONS. What detectives demand to know”

Pages 4 and 5: “Kate breaks down during TV grilling.” Kate and Gerry McCann are on the telly. Says Kate: “I feel sad and I feel lonely and our life is not as happy without Madeleine…we want people to try to reunite us with your beautiful girl”

And: “We know the truth. We know we are totally innocent. That is why we are calm. We know each other”

Says a “British detective”: “The detectives could be giving the suspects enough rope to hang themselves. It is a common tactic in police investigations to let those under suspicion speak on television in case they trip themselves up”

THE SUN front page: “KATE WEEPS FOR MADDIE – I feel in my heart she is out there”

“Distraught” Kate on the telly. Kate and Gerry are publicising a telephone hotline. No, not 999, their own number

Pages 4 and 5: “MADDIE NEEDS US – So lonely without our lovely girl, sobs Kate”

Three pictures of “Precious..the happy Maddie her mum longs to see”

Three pictures of the McCanns:

“Anguish…Gerry faces TV quiz”
“Ordeal…Kate fights back tears”
“Brave…but the McCanns struggle with their emotions as they relive the night Maddie vanished”

The hotline. Says Kate McCann: “We want to appeal to the people of Spain, Portugal and North Africa to help us and to tell them we have a new central phone number for them to call”

DAILY STAR front page: “MADDIE MUM FINALLY CRACKS – Suspect Kate sobs on TV as she is quizzed”

Pages 8 and 9: “MADDIE’S MUM TV BREAKDOWN – Torment as Kate’s sobs halt interview four times”. Spanish TV journalist Roberto Arce sees Kate “prostrate with pain”

The McCanns hotline number is 00 34 902 300 213


Says Mrs McCann: “Somebody knows something. It is not about us. It is about Madeleine.” Is it? We are watching the parents

Gerry McCanns is a “consultant cardiologist”. He says: “We have not been charged with anything”

“Will they find her in Spain?” – Gerry McCann tells El Mundo newspaper (Spain): “The possibility that Madeleine is alive and in Spain is real…If someone had a car, it is clear they could cross into Spain. There is no border guard and no one closed the border the night Madeleine disappeared.” And we look again at the police

THE TIMES page 3: “Sobbing Kate McCann insists that Madeleine is alive and being held”

“Days of hope and despair” – The Times looks at some key dates: June 21 (Madeleine in Malta); August 3 (Madeleine in Belgium); August 23 (Madeleine in Morocco)


Page 5: “’Sad, lonely’ Kate weeps for Madeleine in TV interview” – Kate McCann wept “uncontrollably”. Says he:” I feel anxious she is not with us”

THE GUARDIAN page 12: “McCanns set up phone line to seek Madeleine”

THE INDEPENDENT: No Madeleine news today
