Brenda Leyland known on twitter as sweepyface

Maddie Case: English woman was found dead in a hotel room
British Media Regulator has received 34 complaints over Sky News report

by Marisa Rodrigues

The English authorities have not yet been able to explain the death of a woman accused of “attacking” Kate and Gerry, Madeleine McCann's parents, on the social media. Brenda Leyland, 63 years old, was found dead in a hotel room, two days after her identity was exposed in a Sky News report.

Brenda's name, according to that English TV channel, was reportedly included in a list given to the Metropolitan Police along with dozens of persons who have made comments considered excessive against Kate and Gerry. This is a 80-page dossier containing comments from Twitter, Facebook and online forums against the couple, some of which death threats.

Brenda was just another of the couple's critics. She has allegedly written that the child's parents should suffer “for the rest of their miserable lives”, and that Kate and Gerry “should burn in hell” and live "“in total misery”.

A Sky News report crew decided to doorstep Brenda at her house in Leicester, where the McCanns live. With the camera always on and without protecting the woman's face the reporter asked her why she wrote those messages on Twitter, to which she replied “I’m entitled to do that”. Then the reporter informed her the police was investigating her activities. The woman did not show concern.

The report was broadcast on Wednesday and the media harassment that ensued has allegedly forced her to leave her home. On Saturday night, the police were called to a hotel in Leicester and Brenda was found dead in one of the rooms. At that time, the local police said the death was not being treated as suspicious. But the causes are not yet known.

Criticism about the outing

Sky News and the reporter have been severely criticized by the British public opinion. Ofcom, the body that regulates the activity of the Media in the United Kingdom, received 34 complaints about the report and is considering whether to open an investigation against its authors.

English return next week

Scotland Yard is expected in Faro next week for a meeting at the Judiciary Police Directorship of Faro. The meeting between the leaders of the two police forces will be used to work out the details of the next steps in the Algarve, within the scope of the English investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine.

The team led by Andy Redwood wants to question “seven persons of interest”, including the three men that had previously testified.

How many more lives will the McCann case destroy?

Brenda Leyland was obviously a woman who cared, like many thousands of us, about Madeleine McCann. She is now dead because she cared enough to voice her opinion on the net.  Goncalo Amoral, the Portuguese detective, who first handled the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance had his life destroyed because he would not buy into the McCann's abduction story. He cared enough to write a book about his conclusions based on an overwhelming amount of hard fact and circumstantial evidence. There are many, many more people who have been penalised for daring to disagree with the McCanns.  Apart from the fact that the child is missing there was absolutely no evidence to support an abduction and much more evidence to suggest the involvement of the parents in whatever happened to her. I hope that when Ben Leyland has taken his time to grieve he sues all those involved in the unfortunate demise of his mother whose only "sin" was to care about what really happened to a little girl.

I have today seen some tweets made by someone calling themselves Rainne (@dirndllass) sent to Brenda that are the most disgusting I have ever seen. I have forwarded them to the Met and drawn attention to them in as many places as I can. They clearly threaten Brenda in the most appalling way and it would not surprise me if they had something to do with her demise. This person also needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If there is anything that I can do for Brenda's family to help you have only to contact me.

Hopefully Brenda's death will not be in vain. Perhaps by throwing the spotlight on this case once again, the unusual government protection the McCanns seem to have will cease as more and more people demand to know the truth of what has happened to millions of taxpayers' money wastefully spent when it would have been cheaper to put the McCanns on trial.

I too extend my deepest sympathy to Brenda Leyland's family and hope that no more people have to die or have their lives wrecked by the McCann propaganda machine and their misguided followers. RIP Brenda Leyland

Mysterious indeed.

Post by PeterMac on 07.10.14 22:56

It is reported that this poor woman, hounded by Martin Brunt and Sky, and therefore by News International aka Murdoch - hanged herself.

Hanging is a particularly MALE way of committing suicide.
Men shoot themselves and hang themselves, and gas themselves, and the statistics show that they are successful.
Women take drugs, cut wrists and lie in hot baths, and are very often NOT successful. Mercifully

I know of several exceptions to these generalisations, of course, professional and personal, but the fact that this is "out of character"
should raise alarm bells as the knowledgeable public did with Dr Kelly who "cut his wrists" with a blunt pocket knife . . . . No he didn't !
or Mike Todd (CC of Manchester), who drank a half bottle of gin on a welsh mountain and died of exposure . . . No he didn't !
Or Erwin Rommel, who took cyanide. Well he did, but under orders.

Are the Feather Men still around !

Sadder and sicker...

Post by missbeetle on 07.10.14 23:24

I'm so sorry to read that Mrs Leyland was found hanged.

I believe Jacintha Saldanha was also said to have used this method to kill herself...

...and I still have doubts and questions as to what went on in her case.

The car that came up the road during Martin Brunt's questioning -

- it looked like a politician's limo and it gave me the creeps.

I see Chris Spivey has been arrested again.

Very strange times.

Best wishes to all the posters and readers on here.

Strange isn`t it.  Wouldn`t have thought there was anything high enough in a hotel room to do such a thing.

This is very suspicious i think. Other people have been found hanged in hotel rooms too, hmmm. One that springs to mind is Michael Hutchence of the band INXS from Australia, and there has been suspicion about his death too.

From one of the articles i read on Hutchence's death:

"The maid could not get in because he was behind the door and as she pushed the door the belt snapped and he fell down. Poor maid," Gerondis said.

And this:

He had apparently hanged himself with his own belt and the buckle broke away and his body was found kneeling on the floor and facing the door.

In MH's case this was a reenactment, and i think if he had hung himself from high up on the door and as the article i posted from said he was found behind the door on his knees, then once the belt buckle had broken he would i imagine have fallen onto the floor not on his knees from a height?
I have never seen this article here before, but its awful for his family.

Wonder how they figured out so quickly her death was "non suspicious"?

I wonder where Brenda's computer is now? Has it been removed?
I also wonder if she left notes and whether she told others about what was happening?

I've never seen the article before either until this morning when I googled.
It's truly awful that hotel door has that kind of hinges that can be used for a morbid purpose.

It is awful, i still love INXS's music, they were a great band, and still hear their music on the radio.
In some of the articles, and there is one actually from of all media  scources the BBC that states a "door knob", so just adds more confusion to the death of MH.

I too have wondered that LDB. 

When I saw her invite Brunt into her home I thought perhaps she would have recorded what was said, so she had proof, especially after her saying back in November 2013 about questioning her death if she should die in suspicious circumstances. 

If it had been me, I would have recorded the conversation and sent it to someone I trusted. Maybe she did. Maybe a solicitor has a copy. I really hope this is the case.

I read further back that she was found hanged. Poor, poor lady.  sad1

Looking at the Marriott Hotel rooms online, HOW could she have done this?

As I said before, this case gets darker and dirtier. IMHO.

Sometimes i wonder how they can say for sure someone has suicided by their own hand, which i have always found very tragic?? We had a case years ago of a young local man who was said to have hung himself at his home, and it was said he committed suicide, but his family didn't think so. He was involved with some shady people it turned out, whom he had drug involvement with, so it happens that sometimes there are others involved. His mum said he also had cigarette burns on his body, just like MH. A lady i know that is friends with his mum told me that, and his family have always said it was murder made to look like a suicide.

There are of course LOTS of questions about all this.

They better get answered properly.

I thought that too Joss.

I saw a comment from someone ( can't remember who or which site) early Sunday who said that she had been found hung. I didn't know if there was any truth in this so I didn't repeat it. Don't know where this person got their information from but it seems they are right.
Bearing in mind what has gone on here this has to be a bit suspicious surely, unless of course the police have other information that we don't know about.

Is it possible for her family to ask for independent expert advise on any findings re. Brenda's death?
