Madeleine McCann at 4 and age enhanced
4-year-old Madeleine McCann disappeared from a resort in Portugal while on vacation with her family and a group of other families and their children. Her case has been widely publicized around the world and she is still considered missing.
From the beginning, Madeleine’s disappearance has been the source of controversy, much of it surrounding her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, and their subsequent actions. After several inquiries, a campaign by the parents, and numerous theories, Madeleine’s case is still unsolved.

Will this be put on youtube? I hope so, since I can't watch it live.

Peter - please analyze the ongoing Erich Nowsch "road rage" shooting case

The victim's family has publicly given multiple conflicting stories of Tammy Meyer's homicide, including an entirely fabricated suspect sketch.
They intentionally hid their relationship with the suspect, who was their neighbor (and potentially sold drugs to the victim).

Here's an article with a decent summary of the family's myriad inconsistencies -

So far, the most/only seemingly truthful information has come from the suspect himself!

I misspelled the victim's name as Meyer in my above post.
It is Meyers.

Also - here is a video with multiple statements from the husband, including the supposed declaration to his dying wife he would not rest until he "finds out who did this," despite later admitting his family had been on good terms with the shooter prior to the killing.

There seems to be 'something' behind his words regarding his decision to remove his wife from life support. An unsubstantiated story indicated he refused to wait the full 48 hours recommended by the hospital before ordering the plug pulled.
There has been speculation online that he orchestrated her death, but nothing officially stated by LE or apparently backed up by apparent evidence. Nonetheless, it's still an interesting angle to consider.

Additionally, (one of) his initial report(s) claimed there to have been 3 individuals in the car with the shooter.

These are just a few of the changes to the original story put forth by Tammy Meyers' family, mostly the husband.

Hi Hey Jude. Your wish is my command

I will definitely be setting aside a chunk of time to listen to this!

Hey Jude said...

Hi, Tania, thanks for the link. I have read these in time past. They are reports of what the interpreter said rather than a direct translation of the interview -

For an example:


As regards personality, the child was extrovert, very active, talkative, alert with an easy relationship with other children. He also says that she would never go with a stranger.

He has no suspects to point out, he cannot find any motive for such an act, as neither he nor his wife has any enemies.

He adds that his daughter is not suffering from any illness or take any medication.

When asked, he says that he authorises a reading of the recorded data of his mobile phone no. 00***7869***88.


How did he say it, add it, or answer it? So much is not there - I don't think the statements are of much use in that form for the purposes of SA.

'He has no suspects to point out, he cannot find any motive for such an act, as neither he nor his wife has any enemies. '

It's unlikely Gerry actually said, 'I have no suspects to point out, I cannot find any motive for such an act as I, nor my wife, has any enemies.'

He might have said it just like that, but as it is not a first person statement, only a report of what he said, and the same with Kate, well - it's just more or less what he said, rather than specifically what and how he said it.

I look forward to this presentation, and you are looking sharp Peter! Happy Holidays!

Tania Cadogan said...

The initial interviews were done as though they were victims, the questioning would not have been hard, basically only who they are, what they do and a rough idea of who did what that night.They would not have been under any pressure, they were treated as non suspects and innocent.
The more detailed questioning would have been when they were arguidos, which would have caught them off balance and also revealing sensitivities in their words.

@ Hey Jude and further to tania,

There are English interviews in the early days. For example David Payne's was recorded and transcribed:
