McCann Empire: The first 1,000 days

January 26, 2010

Clarence Mitchell: “Kate and Gerry have good and bad days, as you would well expect given that their daughter is still not home, as you say, nearly a thousand days on. They draw greatest strength from when they sense there is momentum in the search, and in the wider campaign to keep awareness of Madeleine high in the public eye, and so, on Wednesday, to mark a thousand days exactly they’re going to be holding a fund raising event in London and they’ll be surrounded by their long term friends and supporters, so they will draw great strength from that. But it is very difficult and they do find any, errr… anniversary or occasion like this to be very difficult“.

It is, perhaps, not surprising that the McCanns feel strongest when the hunt goes in the opposite direction to the McCanns. On the evening Madeleine went missing, 3 May 2007, the McCanns wined and dined with friends as they neglected to stay at home with the kids and abandoned them in Apartment 5A. And on the one thousandth day of evading justice, the McCanns will be once again wining and dining with friends.

It beggars belief that Clarence Mitchell can claim that the McCanns find it difficult to celebrate, the 50th, 100th, 1 year and now 2 year stage. Before the 50th was over Gerry McCann announced the intention to mark the 100th day since Madeleine went missing. On my Jailhouselawyer’s Blog, I pointed out “How does Gerry McCann know that Madeleine will not be found in the meantime?”. Shortly afterwards, Gerry McCann inserted the words “if she is not found” by the 100th day.

Jenna Wolfe after stating that the McCanns have brought an action in court against Mr Amaral, trying to gag him, she then goes on to sympathise with the McCanns by stating: “As if they need something else to continue to worry about”. What do you mean, along with guilty consciences? If they did not want the worry why did they bother to sue in the first place?

Networld criminal profilers

January 21, 2010

As a criminal profiler, I have also sometimes been criticized for theorizing about a case I have not personally been privy to the actual facts from inside the investigation. As I do a lot of television commentary, this is quite often the case for me; I only can theorize based on the “facts” outlined by the media“.

Isn’t this what most of us do? Either sit in front of the television set and/or computer screen and form a theory based on what we see and hear of the case? We are presented with the “facts” and form a judgement based upon them what the likeliest scenario is or was.

For example, the “fact” that there was a break-in? The “fact” as presented by a spin doctor or in this case a spin cardiologist turns out not to be a fact at all once the spin is unspun and is pure fiction which is the direct opposite position.

That is, a purported truth is a lie. And the teller of this story is a liar. More precisely, a McCannliar. The role of a spin doctor, in this case a spin cardiologist, is to put across a message which favours the teller and when Clarence Mitchell sells out and joins the McCann Camp the teller paints the best picture he can for his client for us all to view. I have seen what I would call art and I have seen what some claim to be art and I see as pure garbage.

What we are talking about here is opinions. Clarence Mitchell is an opinion former. When MPs leave government or even those within it are associated with outside interests which earn them extra money. They are paid for what they know and who they know. Clarence Mitchell left a secure government post to work for the McCanns. That was a risky move if done so voluntarily. Did he jump or was he pushed? The reason I ask is the “fact” that he tipped off the McCanns to police monitoring of their phones. It is “fact” rather than fact purely because I was informed by a reliable source that this is what occured. Remember the mentioned liquid lunches the cops took? Let’s say for example, a crime reporter for a TV station is told to get the inside story. He has expenses. He bumps into a cop or cops, offers to buy their lunch. It’s a freebie. Drink? “Can’t say anything because of the secrecy laws”. Another drink? And after a while the drink loosens the tongue. How do you know this? We have been listening to their mobile phone calls and monitoring texts.

The UK government intelligence departments know this. They brief the Foreign Office, and Clarence Mitchell is briefed on his role to support the McCanns in Public Relations, but he oversteps this assistance and tells them they are being monitored. It is picked up by the police that the McCanns have been tipped off by Clarence Mitchell. The Portuguese government complains to the UK government and Clarence Mitchell must resign or face disciplinary action. He goes away to consider his position, phones the McCanns and they offer him a job.

Why would two totally innocent people enlist the support of some or all of their friends in a cover up if nothing had happened to Madeleine? There would be no point. So, we are dealing with criminals here. What are their individaul and collective crimes? What are their criminal profiles?

What child abduction? (Revisited)

January 20, 2010

What child abduction

What child abduction?

This is a favourite subject of mine. As a young child, I had problems, but still a bright child who was always asking “Why?” It was frustrating when an adult responded with “Because”. It was not an answer, but a non-answer. Evasive. That is why I like the photo above so much. When Gerry McCann is asked the question, he responds with “Because”. There is so much evasiveness with the McCanns.

The position offered by the McCanns, initially, was break-in + disappearance = abductor. Eventually, Clarence Mitchell confessed that there was no evidence of a break-in. Clarrie’s retreat is very significant, it is as big as removing one of the elements of Earth, Wind and Fire. Suddenly, he was then claiming disappearance = abduction. But, all those references in the media remain where family and friends put out the McCanns propaganda of the fake break-in.

Why did the McCanns fake a break-in?

Almost as important, why have their friends and family still stuck by them when they have been used so badly, let down, and very seriously lied to? Why have they not been speaking to the media about questioning the McCanns why they were lied to? They were quite happy to gob off before when spinning the McCanns web of deceit.

McCanns taped admission unlawfully obtained

October 3, 2008

In my view, Gonçalo Amaral knows more than he is letting on about what happened to Madeleine on the night of 3 May 2007. This is based upon his telling a British TV journalist that he had heard Clarence Mitchell tipping off the McCanns that they were the subject of electronic surveillance. Given that there was no lawful authority for the PJ to use electronic surveillance upon the McCanns and the remaining members of the Tapas bar 9, the PJ were unable to use the evidence on the tapes because it would be inadmissible in court.

J’accuse I accuse the McCanns

September 4, 2008

Were the Portuguese police right to “believe that Kate McCann killed Madeleine while putting her to bed at their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz between 7pm and 8.30pm on May 3” 2007?

Clarence Mitchell claimed that the allegation is nonsensical. The McCann camp lied to the public and the media when “A source close to the McCanns said: “… Kate was not in the apartment alone with Maddie”…”.

Even in this untruthful account given by Kate McCann she states she was alone in the apartment whilst Gerry McCann went out to play tennis: “Kate said that she and Gerry went back to apartment, with the children, around 5:40 pm and gave them bath, together (statement to PJ, September 6, 2007). They thought about taking the children to the playground area, after bath, but decided not to do it, that day, because the children were really very tired. Just before 6:00 pm, Gerry left the apartment and went to the tennis court“.

Kate McCann lied to cover up the fact that she was alone with the three children in the apartment and when the children were being bathed: “According to his statement, on September 7, 2007Gerry was playing tennis. At around 6:30 pm, David Payne came from Paraíso bar, and asked him if he was going to keep playing. Gerry said he didn’t know, because Kate could need some help to take care of the three children, as they intended to take them to the playground, after the bath“.

I did float the theory on my Jailhouselawyer’s blog that perhaps Madeleine drowned? In any event, I would strongly suggest that Madeleine died around bath time. Why did the McCanns go to so much trouble to try and convince the public and the media that the adults bathed the children together? The McCanns got the basics of their story together, however, it started to fall apart with the glaring inconsistencies. Not only did the PJ detect the inconsistencies, bloggers, forumers and those in chatrooms also ripped the McCanns story apart.

The hastily arranged get together in the Tapas bar was solely for the purpose of discussing what Gerry McCann stated was a disaster to their life-style. The agenda being a cover up. Their careers and reputations were at stake, Madeleine was dead and none of their medical expertise could alter that fact, so they embarked upon a salvage operation to save what was left. It was decided that the Vanishing Act would be blamed on an abductor who broke into the apartment, and the McCanns would use the media to further their aims. When their version of events raises the eyebrows of the PJ because what they are hearing does not correlate with the scene as set up by the McCanns, Jane Tanner suddenly becomes a witness to seeing the abductor. However, this hastily arranged shoring up the version of events had flaws. Neither Jeremy Wilkins nor Gerry McCann state they saw Jane Tanner at the same time and place she claimed to be when seeing the abductor. Jeremy Wilkins had inadvertantly stumbled upon Gerry McCann tampering with the shutters to make it look like a break in had occured, or as he later claimed a break out by the abductor as he went out of the window. Both Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins would not only have seen the abductor, they would have also heard him.

Bath time, Jane Tanner’s sighting and Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins meeting are 3 key weaknesses in the McCanns version of events.

Clarence Mitchell states: “We just hope that everyone can see these ridiculous rumours for what they are. It is very hard on the couple because they are not allowed to talk about the investigation and cannot defend themselves”.

There is nothing stopping the McCanns from speaking out now to defend themselves.

J’accuse I accuse the McCanns.

The growing army against the McCanns

September 4, 2008

In May of this year I decided to change the title and content of this blog from its previous role of attacking the failed politician Iain Dale, who is not really all that important, to the serious issue of attempting to obtain justice for Madeleine. Yesterday I looked at the stats for readers of this blog since the change of its purpose they are as follows:

May: 1,259

June: 6,395

July: 7,084

August: 10,537

Fairly consistently Joana Morais is the top referrer to this blog, occasionally the top referrer has been wordpress.com (like yesterday, for example) or CNN.com and before I was banned from the forum The Three Arguidos provided much traffic. In spite of the attempt by the 3As to silence me, they have appeared to have lost the plot somewhere down the line, this blog has grown from strength to strength.

There was a shaky moment yesterday when an attempt to censor Kate McCann killed Madeleine was made by someone at wordpress. Obviously some supporter of child killing lodged a complaint and it was probably someone within the McCann camp. Anyone interested in the legal position of blogs and libel may find this Judge and Jury? post illuminating. My view is, if the McCanns, their lawyers or Clarence Mitchell are not happy with the content of this blog they are free to sue me for libel. Getting the McCanns into court has been my main objective since 3 May 2007.

We are fighting the good fight. Should this blog get silenced I will continue the fight on my Jailhouselawyer’s blog until such time as I can arrange for a web host operating from the USA where they are not as afraid of freedom of speech as they are in the UK. Above the interests of the McCanns I place justice for Madeleine. Someone has to care for the memory of Madeleine, because her parents did not care for her when she was alive and have displayed no respect for her since she was so tragically killed on the evening of 3 May 2007. May she rest in peace. However, there will be no peace for the wicked McCanns.

McCanns show no respect for Madeleine and Mainstream Media is guilty of shielding McCann childkillers

August 18, 2008

It is noticeable that if you type “McCanns latest news” into Google that none of the Mainstream Media has reported anything on the McCanns for at least a week. And yet, both the mccannfiles and Joana Morais blogs have reported on the story of the McCanns tearing up the blank end pages of two of Madeleine’s story books to use as writing paper. I have known prisoners to do this in prison when writing paper was in short supply and such blank pages would come in useful, however, the books belong to the prison library and not some missing little girl. In my view, it was inexcusable what the McCanns did to Madeleine’s favourite story books. It shows no respect for Madeleine. Moreover, had Madeleine been genuinely abducted and therefore in a position to be returned alive to the McCanns, no doubt she would have been devastated by this destruction by her parents. Therefore, it is another indication that the McCanns know Madeleine will not be coming back to complain about what they have done. The McCanns have shown as little respect for Madeleine’s books as they did for Madeleine herself. First they kill her and dispose of her body before destroying Madeleine’s books to use to write upon them in an attempt to clear their names.

Below is Gerry’s entry on his blog Day 469 (14/08/2008 )

“It is over 3 weeks since we learned that the Portuguese authorities had closed the investigation to find Madeleine, lifted our arguido status and ended judicial secrecy. We were surprised that copies of investigation files were given to the media. The content of these files has been extensively reported. It will be clear to everyone now, that there is absolutely no evidence that suggests Madeleine has been seriously harmed. Knowing this, we strongly believe that Madeleine is out there and can be found.

Of course whoever is responsible for Madeleine’s abduction must, and can be, found to prevent them from putting another child and family through the misery we have suffered. We have always believed that this heinous crime could be solved with the help of the public.

Our investigators continue to explore credible leads and will continue to do so as long as Madeleine is missing. Now that the authorities are no longer looking for Madeleine we implore everyone who has provided information to the enquiry to contact us at investigation@findmadeleine.com or on + 44 (0)845 838 4699. We will guarantee that all information will be treated in the strictest confidence. You can help us find Madeleine”.

The first thing to point out is that the McCanns made such a fuss about getting access to these files, and when they do, Gerry is speechless on his blog for 3 whole weeks! Secondly, the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine has not been closed. It has been shelved until new information becomes available. Thirdly, I lost count the amount of times the McCanns and Clarence Mitchell told reporters they could not go into details because of the judicial secrecy. This has now been lifted for a month and still the Mccanns and Clarence Mitchell refuse to go into detail. There can only be one explanation for this continued silence, they have got something to hide. It is time that the Mainstream Media started putting leading questions to the McCanns, or asking them to now provide the details which they said before they were prevented from so doing.

It is untruthful for Gerry to claim that there is no evidence that Madeleine has been seriously harmed. Whilst he is happy to keep repeating this lie, he fails to point out the truth that there is absolutely no evidence to support the McCanns abduction theory. I believe that the heinous crime that the McCanns are guilty of perpetrating will be solved by the public. The pressure should be kept on the McCanns until one or both of them crack and tell us what happened on the night of 3 May 2007, and what they did with Madeleine’s body so that she can have a decent religious burial and a proper funeral service. Only then will the McCanns show Madeleine or her memory the respect she deserves.

Police files reveal McCanns and Tanner’s lies

August 5, 2008

According to the Telegraph “Kate and Gerry gain hope from Portuguese police inquiry files“. This is clearly Clarence Mitchell spin. The idea being that the McCanns hoped to gain leads from the files to help find Madeleine. In truth, the McCanns wished to see the files to discover the extent of the police evidence against them. As they had hoped, it amounted to very little. Some will say, no evidence therefore the McCanns must be innocent. However, from the outset, the McCanns have ensured that very little evidence is put together to build a case against them.

The PJ were suspicious of this photo of Madeleine’s bed. The PJ did not believe it had been slept in by Madeleine. I would have to agree with the PJ. It looks like the top sheet has been rolled back in readiness for Madeleine to go to bed. And, the most obvious reason why Madeleine did not go to sleep in the bed on 3 May 2007 was because she was already dead. Therefore, the McCanns lied about all 3 children being put to bed before they went out to the Tapas bar. It would also explain why Kate McCann failed to answer the BBC reporter’s question, during a TV interview, “Was Madeleine asleep when you went out?”.

Notice also in the photo where Cuddle Cat is. According to the McCanns, they knew an abductor had been in the apartment because Cuddle Cat had been placed on a shelf which was too high for Madeleine to reach. This was obviously another lie made up by the McCanns to push forward their abduction theory.

According to Jane Tanner’s sketch at 3 is where Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins were supposed to have been stood talking. And at 4 is where Jane Tanner claims to have been when she claims to have seen the abductor crossing her path. However, according to Gerry McCann, he claims to have crossed over the road to talk to Jeremy Wilkins, and that would have been level with at 4. Bearing in mind neither Gerry McCann nor Jeremy Wilkins saw Jane Tanner at all.

It has been recorded that Gerry McCann and Jeremy Wilkins became friendly at the resort. There is no record of Jane Tanner and Jeremy Wilkins having become friends. And yet, note how Jane Tanner has used the familiar “Jez”, the shortened form of Jeremy, to describe where she is supposed to have seen him talking to Gerry McCann. This would indicate that Gerry McCann in some way inappropriately put words into Jane Tanner’s mouth when she gave her evidence.

If Jane Tanner’s account was to be believed, she was on the same narrow footpath passing the two men talking, and Wilkins had a child in a buggy with him, and yet they failed to notice her? She failed to notice Jeremy Wilkins had the child in a buggy at the time. Given the narrowness of the footpath, either the two men would have had to make way to let her pass by, or she would have had to step on the road to pass by them. Jane Tanner fails to mention any of this. I find it unbelievable that she would walk past Gerry McCann without a greeting in passing.

McCanns lied about answering all questions

August 4, 2008

What they said then…

Media reports said the couple used their right to remain silent and refused to answer “more than 40 questions”. Friends insisted they answered all questions put to them“.

What Clarence Mitchell said now…

Kate was well within her rights not to answer if she didn’t want to“.

Isn’t this like leaving 48 stones unturned in the search for Madeleine?

A very plausible case against the McCanns

August 3, 2008

At approximately 10pm on 3 May 2007, at Praia da Luz on the Algarve in Portugal, Kate and Gerry McCann presented the world with a mystery, the disappearance of their 3 year old daughter Madeleine.

Today, Ned Tenko writing in the Observer and reviewing Gonçalo Amaral’s book Maddie: A Verdade da Mentira (The Truth About the Lies) states, after briefly putting Amaral’s main points, “This reviewer – as well as any objective person – would surely by now have ruled out any of these possibilities. The book does nothing to change one’s view that there is no plausible case against the McCanns”.

Whilst Ned Tenko’s review of Gonçalo Amaral’s book is quite good, his view that the McCanns are innocent of guilt in the disappearance of Madeleine is mistaken.

Kate and Gerry McCann claimed that between 8-8.30pm they had left their three children under 4 years of age unsupervised in their locked apartment, only to return at 10pm to discover Madeleine was missing. They claimed that an abductor must have broken into the apartment, whilst they were away, and kidnapped Madeleine.

Rather than state “that there is no plausible case against the McCanns”, the abductor theory is not plausible, which means that the last people to see Madeleine alive, after 6pm,  were Kate and Gerry McCann. Ned Tenko describes the McCanns as “an ordinary, middle-class family”. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The McCanns in my book are best described as an odd couple. There is quite a bit about them which is strange to say the least.

According to Kate and Gerry McCann, there was no mystery surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine, because it was obvious to them that she had been abducted. They were certain of this. The McCanns have yet to explain why it is that they were so certain as to the fate that had befallen Madeleine. Whilst other holiday makers, locals, and the police and Mark Warner staff were out searching for Madeleine, the McCanns stayed in the apartment. This was odd. Because, if the McCanns were innocent, and returned from a night out to find their daughter missing, they would not have a clue what had happened to her. However, the McCanns claimed to know just what had happened to Madeleine. All they needed to do was to convince the rest of the world to accept their version of events.

Initially, the McCanns claimed that their apartment was locked and that an abductor had broken into the apartment and damaged the shutters when they were jemmied open. The McCanns had phoned their family and friends to give their version of events and told them to spread the word. Newspapers, radio and television picked up these reports and broadcast them as though they were factual reports. However, there were no visible signs of a break in according to John Hill, the Mark Warner complex manager. There was no evidence, according to the police and PJ, of any break in. Much later, even Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns media spokesman, confirmed that there was no evidence of a break in. However, the McCanns personally have not yet made any public statement why they lied about a break in. It has to be said, it is plausible that the McCanns lied to cover up their own involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine.

It is plausible that at 10pm, before she raised the alarm, Kate McCann opened the apartment window. It had been cleaned the day before. Kate McCann was asked whether she had touched the window, and she claimed that she had not. However, only Kate McCann’s fingerprints showed up on the window during the PJ fingerprint testing. Once again, the McCanns have yet to provide an explanation to refute this evidence against them. Not only is there no evidence of a break in, there is evidence against the McCanns that they have lied twice in relation to the break in and setting the scene to look like someone broke in. It must be plausible that the McCanns are involved in the disappearance of Madeleine, and their attempts to blame someone else must be suspicious to say the least.

One of the most disturbing things about this whole case is the way that the McCanns keep changing their story of events. When the break in version starts to crumble, the McCanns then claim that they left the apartment unlocked. So, instead of an abductor breaking into the apartment, he simply walked in through the unlocked patio doors and supposedly climbed out of the window. Surely, it would have made more sense to walk out the same way? But, there needs to be an explanation for the opened window. It is plausible that the McCanns were desparate to keep hold of the abductor theory and adapting it later to fit the police findings. In my view, once the break in story was rejected the abductor story should also have been rejected. Then this leaves the McCanns with no explanation for the disappearance of Madeleine.
