the linking of a murder of a child by its own relatives, and concealment of the body for a long time, and then a long term of imprisonment
with Madeleine's case
has a certain Schadenfreude ring to it.
The grandfather and mother of a four-year-old girl whose dismembered body was found dumped in a river have been jailed for life over her murder.

Ronny Ron, who was having an affair with his daughter-in-law, Marie-Charlotte Renault-Pizem, found his grandchild, Rose, difficult to handle and killed her in a fit of rage, a court heard.
He dumped her remains in a suitcase in Tel Aviv's Yarkon river, not far from his home in the coastal resort of Netanya in May 2008.
Rose's disappearance sparked a nationwide hunt and she was often referred to as the Madeleine McCann of Israel as the case bore similarities to that of the missing British three-year-old.
Police divers found her body last September and the lovers were arrested triggering a debate on child welfare. Renault-Pizem, 26, who was convicted of plotting her daughter's murder last month, had moved to Israel from France with her husband, Benjamin, in 2004 to be nearer his family.
However, the couple divorced the following year after Mr Pizem discovered his wife was having an affair with his 48-year-old father.
Mr Pizem took Rose back to France but after a custody row she was returned to Israel in 2007

After three years of court hearings, the judges’ verdict made it clear that they did not believe a single statement that the defendants uttered – and while the precise nature of the young girl’s death may never be fully known, the judges had no doubt that Ron had murdered her, and did so at Pizem’s urging.
“Watching the video depicting Pizem’s first police interrogation on the day of her arrest cannot leave the viewer indifferent, in light of the complete lack of natural maternal emotion of Pizem towards Rose. The accused described Rose in a humiliating, ugly, fashion – mimicking her and expressing feelings of hate and loathing towards her,” read the verdict.
“She said that Rose was indeed her biological daughter, but that she wasn’t really her daughter, ‘not in her heart’ – that she felt nothing towards her, and that as far as she was concerned, she only had two daughters. Every time it was suggested that something had happened to Rose, she either denied the possibility or ignored the question, and only asked to see Ron, whom she loves, and her daughters who were crying down the hall.”
