Sun article 6.5.2011 - Madeleine, by her Mum

Madeleine: By her mum




Loving mum ... Kate with Maddie

By ANTONELLA LAZZERI and OLIVER HARVEY, Chief Feature Writer
Published: Today

IT'S the most heartbreaking book you will ever read.

Four years ago Madeleine McCann was abducted from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Now for the first time ever her mum Kate tells in her own words the utter torment Madeleine's family have suffered since their little girl disappeared.


She tells of the moment she discovered Madeleine, who disappeared days away from her fourth birthday, was missing.

What Kate and husband Gerry fear happened to their precious daughter. How they were made official suspects in their daughter's abduction and how they have devoted their lives to searching for their daughter for the past four years.

The book, simply called 'Madeleine', containing never before seen photos of the little girl, is being serialised in The Sun from this Saturday and all next week.

The McCanns hope the book, which is being published on Madeleine's eighth birthday, will boost a dwindling fund that helps pay for the search for Madeleine to continue.


Kate, 43, said: "Every penny we raise through its sales will be spent on our search for Madeleine. Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl."

[ Book...out May 12 ]

The McCanns also hope the book may help provide the key piece of information that could lead to Madeleine being found.

Gerry said: "We are hopeful that this book may help the investigation to find Madeleine in other ways too.

"Our hope is that it may prompt those who have relevant information (knowingly or not) to come forward and share it with our team. Somebody holds that key piece of the jigsaw."

'Madeleine' is being published on May 12th by Transworld at a price of £20.

Readers can buy Madeleine (RRP £20) for the special price of £18.00 including free UK and Ireland p&p. To order please call 01206 255 800 and quote the reference 'MMC'.

Extracted from MADELEINE by Kate McCann, to be published by Bantam Press on 12 May priced at £20.

We don't need to buy the book then, just buy the skanky newspaper and scan it and upload it here.

Only selected highlights will be in the Sun.

The fascinating detail, the contradictions skated over, the evasions, the things left out, the backfitting etc. will all be in the book.

But it's a 'Good News Day' for the Sun, they might sell an extra 50,000 to 100,000 copies by putting Madeleine on the front page, no doubt they've got extra advertising into the paper on the back of publishing a photo of Madeleine on the front page, which will pay for their fee to Transworld for the serialisation.

Why are they advertising it at £ 18 when everyone knows you can get it at WHSmiths and on Amazon at a tenner ? Even with p&p it is a poor deal.

She sees Maddie alone and screaming?

thinking

But, but, but, I thought she said the paedophile would be treating her like a princess, rubbing her tummy and treating her with the love and respect she deserves?

I thought it was when Maddie was in the holiday apartment that she was alone and screaming when Mrs Fenn heard her?

Agree!

And what of Gerry's ongoing, more or less continuous claim that there is no evidence that Madeleine has come to any harm? Surely they can't have it both ways.

Having read the short extract in The Sun, I can already see a few contradictions, shall we say - her lies about the shutters and the window, for example, and how far they were open. However, I'm sure someone with a much more forensic brain will pick this piece of rubbish to bits as soon as possible.

Kate tells of the first night she peeped into her daughter's pink bedroom after the family got home to Rothley, Leics - breaking down as she recalls imagining Madeleine saying: "Lie with me, Mummy. Lie with me."

Yes, my darling daughter. I am doing !

Whoops the Daily Express

Post by Tigers Eye on 07.05.11 8:57

The Express has allowed comments to be posted on what is basically a re-hashing of The Sun's article. Read them quick before they're whoosh clunked.

On a wider point, though, I wonder whether anyone will be sticking their neck out over the next week or so and feature the other side of this fabricated story? Is any smart journalist going to interview Sr. Amaral, or...is Tony going to be approached for an article or two?

She is writing the exact type of Pae**** pornography she purports to be against. She wants the Paed**** kidnapper to read the book and her daughter to read it ?
This woman is out of control.

Hi PeterMac,

Yes a complete reversal of what they have been saying for the past 4 years, that there is not evidence she has come to any harm, and that whoever she's with is looking after her and will be rubbing her tummy if she's unwell, and giving her her blanket!!!

MADELEINE McCann's mother has told for the first time of terrible visions that her kidnapped daughter is being abused by a pervert.
But not coming to any harm, ?
In a heart-rending book serialised from today in The Sun, Kate, 43, writes how she is haunted by "flashes" of Madeleine "screaming" for her and husband Gerry.
The couple also tell The Sun exclusively about being at the centre of one of the most harrowing stories of modern times.
Kate says four years after her three-year-old was snatched on a family holiday in Portugal: "The idea that my Madeleine was taken by a paedophile is my worst fear.
"I became consumed with it. It was torture for me. It was horrible, so vivid.

"It's worse when I go to bed and think about that first awful night again, when Madeleine went missing.
"That sense of dark and fear, of being desperate to sleep but not being able to. I just end up plummeting down again."
So when you said you were able to sleep soundly after just 5 days that was not true.

The emotion-charged book by ex-GP Kate is titled simply Madeleine.
She and consultant cardiologist Gerry, 42, admit they are plagued by guilt over the night Madeleine vanished from their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz while they enjoyed a meal with friends at a tapas bar.
Kate says: "If your child is killed in a traffic accident, or died of cancer, parents are at peace. But Madeleine is still missing and she needs us to do something."
You are at PEACE if your child dies of cancer ? Really ? Or is killed in a traffic accident ? Have they never met anyone who has lost a child under those circumstances ?
This is bordering on the pathological.

The 384-page book, which features previously unseen pictures of Madeleine, is to be published on her daughter's eighth birthday on Thursday.

Gerry put a comforting arm around Kate as he said of his brave wife: "There were times when I thought she would never get back to being the woman I love.
"I could understand why something like this destroys relationships. It's been so hard to keep your own head above water at times."

Fighting back tears he tells of the guilt that "consumed" the couple after their lives changed forever that fateful night. Their tiny twins were also asleep in the apartment.
For 4 years they have been telling the world that they were not guilty, that everything they did was well within normal child care protocols.
Gerry says: "Who's thinking about child abductions in a little sleepy out-of-season tourist resort? It never entered our minds. We felt very safe - it was a family resort."
While making no excuses, he tells how their thoughts were: "What could happen? The kids are in bed asleep."
Who is thinking about abduction ? Indeed. Why would anyone jump to that conclusion and not simply think the child had wandered off. Why did you think immediately about abduction, and why did you use that very precise legal word instead of ‘Stolen’ or ‘kidnapped’ ?
Gerry says: "If we could turn back the clock we would. Of course we wouldn't do something like leave the twins alone like that now."
But he stresses: "Blaming us for not being there takes it away from the abductor. Someone went into an apartment and stole a child.
"Of course we feel guilt. But it doesn't bring the child back."
Turn it back on to someone else. It is all their fault, nothing to do with me.

Kate tells of the first night she peeped into her daughter's pink bedroom after the family got home to Rothley, Leics - breaking down as she recalls imagining Madeleine saying: "Lie with me, Mummy. Lie with me."
Freudian use of that word ?

She confesses it shocks her to think her daughter would now be almost eight. The mum says: "How has that time flown by?
"I see girls of eight and I try to imagine Madeleine like that. And I just can't."
So what was the point of the age progression photos

Their twins Amelie and Sean, now six, are a source of constant comfort. Sean has promised his mum: "When you're old, me and Amelie will look for Madeleine."
Same sloppy English grammar that their parents used for the first year or so.
Kate says: "They know that Madeleine was stolen. They call the person who took her 'the naughty man'.
I thought Edgar had claimed most recently that it was a woman.
"They know it happened in Portugal. Amelie said, 'We went to Portugal and then we woke up and Madeleine was gone'."
No. You didn’t wake up. That was the Curious Incident.
Kate says of the abductor: "I think it was someone who knew our movements. I don't think someone was passing by chance and took a child."
Since Portuguese police called off their investigation in 2008, the search for Madeleine has been carried on by private investigators.
Really. Metodo3, Halligen, et al ?
The bill for that is met out of a campaign fund set up by Kate and Gerry. Donations flooded in, building a total of nearly £2 million.
Can you tell us how you have spent it.
Kate says her book is "to give an account of the truth" following vile slurs that the couple themselves were involved. She surrounded herself with photos of Madeleine as she wrote it - based on diaries she has kept.
YOU can read a fuller version of Kate's shattering story in the printed edition of The Sun today and all next week. In the following extract she describes every mother's worst nightmare. It is the night that is seared into her memory - when she left Gerry and their friends at the restaurant and returned to the apartment:

All was silent. Then I noticed that the door to the children's bedroom was open quite wide, not how we had left it.
Fascinating that she repeats this phrase, about the door “as WE left it”. So Gerry did NOT and could not have done the check. She is clearly implying that Gerry lied.
I walked over and gently began to pull it to. Suddenly it slammed shut, as if caught by a draught.
A little surprised, I turned to see if I'd left the patio doors open and let in the breeze. Retracing my steps, I confirmed that I hadn't.
Retracing my steps ? The room is only a few metres across, and from where you were standing you could clearly see the patio door. Is this a trifle poetic
Returning to the children's room, I opened the door a little, and as I did so glanced at Madeleine's bed.
I couldn't quite make her out in the dark. I remember looking at it and looking at it for what was probably only a few seconds, though it felt like much longer.
It seems so daft now, but I didn't switch on the light straight away. Force of habit, I suppose: taking care to avoid waking the children at all costs.
When I realised Madeleine wasn't actually there, I went through to our bedroom to see if she'd got into our bed. That would explain the open door.
On the discovery of another empty bed, the first wave of panic hit me. As I ran back into the children's room the closed curtains flew up in a gust of wind.

My heart lurched as I saw now that, behind them, the window was wide open and the shutters on the outside raised all the way up. Nausea, terror, disbelief, fear. Icy fear. Dear God, no! Please, no!
So we are back to the window open and the shutters being fully raised.
On Madeleine's bed, the top right-hand corners of the covers were still turned over forming a neat triangle. Cuddle cat and her pink princess blanket were lying where they'd been when we kissed her goodnight
A neat triangle, as we saw in the photos. Providing fairly clear evidence that no child had been in that bed that night., and no parent had sat on the bed to read a story.
I dashed over to the second bed, on the other side of the travel cots, where the twins slept on, oblivious, and looked out through the window. I've no idea what I expected to see there.
dashed over ...? The room is tiny, and the second bed is jammed behind the cots. You can hardly move, let alone dash. One small pace is all that would be possible.
Refusing to acknowledge what I already knew,
“already knew? ‘ How did you already know anything ? This is a phrase we use in English to indicate knowledge from some significant time before, not a couple of seconds.
and perhaps automatically going into a well-practised medical emergency mode, I quickly scoured the apartment to exclude all other possibilities, mentally ticking boxes I knew, deep down, were already ticked.
Again, how did you know. Kate, this is the crucial point of this whole saga, and again you are not telling us, the police or anyone how you KNEW
Scoured, as with bleach ? Is this a Freudian slip ?

I checked the wardrobe in the children's room. I ran into the kitchen, throwing open all the cupboard doors, into our bedroom, searching the wardrobes, in and out of the bathroom, all in about 15 seconds, before hurtling out through the patio doors and down towards Gerry and our friends.
Leaving the twins in their beds and all the doors and the window and the shutters wide open.
As soon as our table was in sight I started screaming. "Madeleine's gone! Someone's taken her!"
If the apartment was in sight from the Tapas bar, it follows that the table was in sight from the apartment. So when you told the world you could see the apartment, you were in fact lying.

Here are some comments on the article in the Express...


GREED
07.05.11, 11:47am

As someone who has read every police file ,statement etc on this case from a few days in ,when it was clear to see this was no abduction ( the ONLY ones ever to claim it WAS is ****) I said GREED would be the thing that catches them ,they will get too brave, get too greedy and the **** house of cards will come crashing down ,the end is in sight ****

SERIAL ABANDONMENT AND ? SEDATION
07.05.11, 11:35am

6 medics abandon their children on a nightly basis - have they been reprimanded, never mind charged with neglect? 4 mothers walk out of their holiday apartments and leave their little toddlers unsupervised for hours at a time?? The PJ investigated abduction at the start - it was the British police who advised them to investigate homicide and with the parents as prime suspects. Why did Kate deny the possibility of waking and wandering?? Because her kids were sedated?? I hope the police go through this book with a fine tooth comb - and compare it with the statements.

SHUTTERS ?
07.05.11, 11:32am

i hope Kate tells us again about the SMASHED shutters !! but i would like to bet she doesnt ,and the reason why the 100% accurate cadaver dog found Maddies death scent in 5a,hire car and on Kates clothes ,they are pushing the luck they have had for 4 years by having friends in high places soon this luck will run out and they WILL be brought to account for what they did ,and the day cannot come soon enough RIP ****, betrayed by the people who should have died for her

SEARCH? WHAT SEARCH?
07.05.11, 11:27am

What SEARCH is Kate reffering to? they never even searched on the first night they started this ENORMOUS farce http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YWCVSjIJk8 And in the 5 months Kate taken writing this fairy story why didnt see jump on a plane answer the 48 questions she flatly refused to answer(Remember the LTD CO slogan"NO STONE UNTURNED" all they have to do is answer questions,do reconstruction they ALSO flatly refused to do and the case will be re-OPENED ,but they have said they do NOT want case re-OPENING,you have to ask yourself why ?This book is about MONEY not ****,they also have the FAKE petition ongoing ,it is not on the official petition site ,you do not even have to verify signatures,so not worth a light ,as **** already know, just more propaganda ,and the uk government have already told them they will NOT act on it, there are over 650 Mps in Uk and not ONE has offered to help ,again ask WHY?They have got away with a LOT of things in the last 4 yrs ,and its time this circus was stopped ,and **** to get the justice she so deserves ,may **** and ALL who defend them rot in hell

NO ENTRANCE
07.05.11, 11:02am

There was no entry through any windows because they have a mechanism to stop that happening,this was told to the policeman who led the Bulger case by a top employee of the ocean complex where the **** stayed.The **** are asking the world to believe that Gerry last saw **** at 9pm and Jane Tanner saw the abductor carrying **** at 9.10pm,so in that 10 mins between sightings of **** this abductor somehow got into the apartment,manouvered in total darkness(Kate admitted the apartment was in darkness) found ****,drugged all three children(Gerry said in the Panorama docu that he thought the children had been drugged)picked her up(why he chose the heaviest and oldest child)carried her to the window and somehow got himself and **** through the window,and got outside and walked right passed Gerry and Jeremy Wilkins who were talking outside,oh and this thoughtful paedophile abductor even made Madeleines bed,and all this plus he must of had special powers because not one single dna cell was found in the apartment.I suggest the Express ought to find it's guts and serialise Amaral's book,because i know which version of the two books i believe,and the express know it too.

SO CONFUSING
07.05.11, 10:45am

I just don`t get how the police perspective and the McCann`s perspective can be poles apart. I see Kate is still suggesting the apartment window was the entrance/exit point when it has been proved impossible. This case will always intrigue me, purely because of all the lies told. It comes down to `who do you believe, the police or the McCanns`. A balanced view of this case cannot be formed until the case records and Dr. Amaral`s book studied.

Express article comments seem to have been whooshed. (13:50hrs)
I particularly love
"Mr Mitchell said: “We cannot predict if it will be a bestseller but Kate and Gerry are hoping it will sell very well. Every copy sold will assist the search for Madeleine.”
It is on Amazon now at £ 9, and in WHSmiths at £ 10, effectively already remaindered, but Mitchell cannot predict if it will be a best-seller.
