MADELEINE  McCann: Anorak’s look at the missing child in the news.

Daily Mirror:

Madeleine McCann ‘kidnapper’ was ‘hotel worker who snatched her after being sacked then DIED in tractor accident’

Why is kidnapper in inverted commas?

Portuguese police are believed to have identified the 40-year-old former Ocean Club employee following tests on his mobile phone, local media reported

Why is he a suspect?

Madeleine McCann’s suspected kidnapper was a worker at the hotel where she vanished who snatched her after being sacked – and later DIED in a tractor accident, it was sensationally claimed today.

The inverted commas are gone. It  was a kidnapping?

Police are believed to have identified the man as their main suspect after tests on his mobile phone showed he was around the McCann’s holiday apartment on the day Maddie disappeared, Portuguese daily Correio da Manha reported. The 40-year-old is understood to have been a former employee at the Ocean Club complex in Praia da Luz who detectives fear may have snatched the little girl out of revenge after he was fired.


Officers have already quizzed his widow about their suspicions and are thought to be searching for Madeleine’s body in the belief he may have killed her, the newspaper reported… Correio da Manha claimed: “Police suspicions about the former Ocean Club employee arose during the review of the case carried out by a PJ team from Porto. This was the strongest new lead presented to state prosecutors which led to the investigation being reopened. The man, who died aged 40 in a tractor accident in 2009, was not on the list of employees handed over to police during the initial investigation by the Ocean Club because at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance he was not working there.”


Such are the facts…
