Maddie Witness Overheard Sinister Comment

EXCLUSIVE: Maddie witness overheard sinister comment about disposing of a body
A BRITISH woman has told Scotland Yard detectives seeking Madeleine McCann that she overheard a conversation in which a man said: “Why did you bring her here? Now we will have to dispose of the body.”

The potential key witness has been interviewed several times in Britain and used to live almost opposite apartment 5a of the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz on the Algarve, from where Madeleine, three, was taken on May 3, 2007.

The Sunday Express understands the comment was heard several hundred yards from the Ocean Club in a residential area towards the seafront.

The woman gave an interview to Portuguese detectives 13 days after the disappearance but the report on the informal interview does not mention her overhearing a conversation about disposing of a body.

However, in April 2008 the woman made a further statement in which she recounted hearing the astonishing comment, saying she heard it days after the abduction. She also claimed that the owner of a pub in Luz was called by a woman shortly after the disappearance who said she had overheard the comment about getting rid of a body.

The Sunday Express understands the owner of the bar has been interviewed but cannot recall the conversation.

The woman has since returned to Britain with her child and is living in the Home Counties.

When contacted by the Sunday Express, the woman, who we are choosing not to name to safeguard the investigation, said: “I do not want to say anything.”

Last month Scotland Yard detectives shadowed three searches of wasteland near the Ocean Club but no obvious clues were found.

Some materials gathered in the search were sent for forensic examination but officers were not hopeful of a breakthrough in the investigation.

The critical point here would be what language she heard it in, assuming as a British woman she heard it in English. Have we actually got a breakthrough, or are we now looking for bi-lingual binmen tractor driving burglars ?

Begs the question why she didn't mention it at the time, oh look she did, but those silly portugese didn't listen.....

Sounds like it's another one for the binman to put in the back of his wagon.

It is a copy and past from the SUN !
So must be treated with the plastic disposable gloves and the tongs provided, and placed in the appropriate bin, for disposal by properly trained operatives.
ETA
And now it seem they copied it from Correio da Manhã (Portuguese equivalent of Daily Star) on July 2

"Freddie Starr ate my daughter hamster " ?

That was one of Clifford's best, wasn't it. And in the end it got him.
Everyone knew knew he told lies, so when he said he was innocent, everyone assumed it was just another lie.

There is another case where everyone knows knows that the the two people concerned have told many many lies, so when they say they are innocent, no one believes them

it looks like the sun people takes out a lazy day and just use some material from a article in the portuguese paper journal de noticias from 2/7/2014

i can't access the original text but here the original is mentioned on here:

The potential key witness

So, according to the Sunday Express, potentially the 'key' to unlocking the entire mystery

has been interviewed several times in Britain

Ah, but by whom? Scotland Yard? Or Brian Kennedy's men, maybe Kevin Halligen, ex-MI5 covert inteligence boss Henri Exton, or Dave Edgar?

and used to live almost opposite apartment 5a of the Ocean Club in Praia da Luz on the Algarve,

That narrows it down a bit

from where Madeleine, three, was taken on May 3, 2007.

or wasn't 'taken' on 3 May

The Sunday Express understands the comment was heard several hundred yards from the Ocean Club in a residential area towards the seafront.

The woman gave an interview to Portuguese detectives 13 days after the disappearance but the report on the informal interview

May 16, then - the very same day that Peter Smith 'remembered' seeing a bloke carrying a child and 'phoned his father, Martin Smith, saying: "Am I dreaming, or did we see a man carrying a child 13 days ago?"

does not mention her overhearing a conversation about disposing of a body.

She forgot? Or made it up later?

However, in April 2008 the woman made a further statement

Yes, but again - to whom? April 2008? It looks like she spoke to one of Brian Kennedy's PI's then

in which she recounted hearing the astonishing comment, saying she heard it days after the abduction.

She reported it, so we are told, to the police on 16 May. Did she hear this claimed conversation the same day or the day before? - or days earlier?

She also claimed that the owner of a pub in Luz was called by a woman shortly after the disappearance who said she had overheard the comment about getting rid of a body.

The Sunday Express understands the owner of the bar has been interviewed but cannot recall the conversation.

He doesn't recall a converation about 'getting rid of a body'?

The woman has since returned to Britain with her child and is living in the Home Counties.

When contacted by the Sunday Express,

Very interesting. So who has disclosed this woman's identity to the Sunday Express?  IMO it is very unlikely to have been Operation Grange. Which points the finger right back at the McCann Team - to Brian Kennedy's men once again. We can be almost certain, then, that this story has come about because this woman has spoken to the McCann Team, and that their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, has supplied the Sunday Express with the woman's address or contact details - maybe just a 'phone number. That must be the source for this story. In which case, we might well ask the question: was the placing of this story in a Sunday tabloid:

a) a genuine attempt to use the media to advance the search for Madeleine? or  

b) a cynical attempt by the master of media manipulation and control to promote a fabricated non-story in ortder to maintain strong public perception that Madeleine was abducted?

the woman, who we are choosing not to name to safeguard the investigation,

Ha ha ha

said: “I do not want to say anything.”

Last month Scotland Yard detectives shadowed three searches of wasteland near the Ocean Club but no obvious clues were found.

'Shadow'? Quite a good word for a shadow so-called 'investigation' which in addition is 'shadowy'. The British taxpayer will be paying not only for the shadwoing but also all the Portuguese Police costs of carrying out these unproductive searches

Some materials gathered in the search were sent for forensic examination but officers were not hopeful of a breakthrough in the investigation.

They unearthed some rabbit or goat bones, I think?


Another extremely cynical attempt by the McCann Team and the mainstream tabloid press, acting in concert? - the McCann Team to promote the abduction claim, the Express to make money?

Why does no journalist, no lawyer, no one except "haters"  EVER ask the obvious question

WHAT LANGUAGE WAS THE PERSON SPEAKING ?

The Brit overhearing a conversation in a bar - IN WHAT LANGUAGE ?
And if you say anything other than English, the supplementary question is
Do you speak that language yourself, and if so so what level of competence ?

Sean hearing Dr Amaral speaking on the radio on the school bus ?
IN WHAT LANGUAGE, KATE ?
Dr Amaral does not speak English with any useful degree of fluency
Therefore he must have been speaking Portuguese - on English radio  - - - !    (But Kate told us, and surely she is an honourable woman)
Or Sean already speaks Portuguese to a high standard - useful when he takes over the search, I suppose (But Kate told us, and surely she is an honourable woman)

We had all this many years ago with the cretin from Devon who heard the man speak "Fluent Portuguese"  
though it turns out he himself had not a single word of the language, and as we commented at the time,
it sounds nothing like Spanish, to which it is closely related, and more like demotic Russian.

I love the way in which, almost without fail, these stories are built around overheard conversations which sound like lines from a very badly written play. Does anyone seriously believe that someone in the situation of having been presented with the body of the most well known 3 year old in the world would actually say "Why did you bring her here? Now we will have to dispose of the body." in a public place loudly enough to be  heard? Only in a Victorian melodrama.Similarly the extraordinarily mature reflections on life attributed to the McCanns children are straight out of some fourth rate novel.

The only significance of this article is that it yet again reinforces the idea that Madeleine is dead which suggests to me that it wasn't actually the pink one who placed it particularly as it appears to have originated in Portugal.

Why would TM allow a story that mentions a body? Surely they would omit the word body, and promote the overheard conversation as live child?

Or have I missed something?

I think this is tm getting the public to come to terms with death, as km saying a few weeks ago that she needs to know what happened. I think she knows she dead, but in the way OG seems to be heading lately, as burglar, killed and took the body for burial, certainly not by the tapas9 though. IMO

This story for me is as bad as the son who received a letter from Hewlett, but he then burned it so (very unfortunately)  no evidence of what the son said was in the letter. 

What use is this story anyway, she heard someone, didn't see them, couldn't identify them (except maybe voice) and if those words were uttered no doubt they would have been in hushed tones.   So what on earth is the point of the story.

There is a 20 grand reward on offer from SY though.

Edited to add - and if hushed tones were used, she would have been close enough to identify the person surely.

Hmmm...

"Have you got my new daughter?" (Victoria Beckham-lookalike to anonymous British banker on a late stag night 'bender')

"I'm having so much fun - this is the best day of my life" (Madeleine)

"Where were you when me and Sean were crying last night?" (Madeleine) followed a year later by "It was just a passing remark" - Kate

Cr@p I'm sure, but wasn't there was a phone call from a local pub to LM/GM mobile on the night of the 3rd?  Or they were placed in the pub on the night of the 3rd?

I just cannot remember the details - wasn't the pub on Rue de 25 April - was it Clive's Bar or Kelly's bar - can anyone remember any details?
Cr@p I'm sure but I would still like to read up on it!



All in my own opinion, nothing stated as fact.

Something to do with this?



Gonçalo Amaral talking about the McCann's in an interview:



"There are people who say that they were seen entering an apartment block near the cemetery in Praia da Luz. At that point in time we weren’t able to detect which apartment they entered, who lived there, because it’s also a bit complicated because you have to understand it’s a tourist area and often it’s not known who the apartment belongs to."

Apparently this woman overheard this conversation several days AFTER the abduction? And in PdL as well! 

So where was Madeleine in the meantime then? Whilst all the searches were going on

This report is just another lot of nonsense

To my post above. 
If I am not remember wrong here, Amaral thought that could be a freezer inside that apartment.

NickE -yes that apartment sprang to my mind as well and yes there was allegedly a freezer in the basement. I am sure the pub where the phone calls originated from and the apartment were all in the same area around rue de 15 Avril - I will try and find the threads later today they are interesting reading in their own right anyway.
