How many questions answered? - 4 SO FAR

Post by Tony Bennett on 10.05.11 20:08

By my reckoning, the following four out of our 163 Questions have been answered in the serialisations so far, either in part of full, but not by any means satisfactorily:

9. What was the precise state of the apartment as Dr Kate McCann entered it at around 10.00pm on 3 May 2007: What was the state of Madeleine’s bed and bedding? Where exactly was ‘Cuddle Cat? How far was the bedroom door open when the McCanns entered it? Were the windows and shutters open or closed? Were the doors to the apartment left open or locked?

46. What is the reason that the McCanns refused to pay for the evening baby-sitting service that was available for Mark Warners holiday guests?

98. Does Dr Gerald McCann still stand by his claim that the evidence of the cadaver dogs is ‘notoriously unreliable’?

100. As you may be aware, on British police advice, the Portuguese Police asked top dog handler Martin Grime to bring his springer spaniels, Eddie and Keela, to Praia da Luz. Eddie is trained to detect the scent of human corpses; Keela is trained to detect the presence of human blood. Eddie had never given a false alert in around 200 previous outings. He alerted to the odour of a human corpse in these locations: four different places in the McCanns’ apartment, two of Dr Kate McCann’s clothes, one of their children’s T-shirts, on the pink soft toy, ‘Cuddle Cat’, and in two places in the Renault Scenic that the McCanns hired. Eddie did not alert to a corpse scent anywhere else in Praia da Luz. Keela detected blood at some of these places. How do the McCanns best explain the ‘alerts’ of these two highly trained springer spaniels? (In 2008, Portuguese TV interviewer Sandra Felgueira asked Dr Gerald McCann: “How can you explain the scent of cadaver found by the British dogs?” Dr McCann answered, and we quote verbatim: “Ask the dogs, Sandra”).

Have any others been answered yet?

I can't bring myself to read Kate's [serialisation - ed. Admin] so is there any chance you can post up the answers she'd made to the 4 questions?

Many, many thanks.

Here is a short summary of the answers Dr Kate McCann has now given on the record:

9. What was the precise state of the apartment as Dr Kate McCann entered it at around 10.00pm on 3 May 2007: What was the state of Madeleine’s bed and bedding? Where exactly was ‘Cuddle Cat? How far was the bedroom door open when the McCanns entered it? Were the windows and shutters open or closed? Were the doors to the apartment left open or locked?

DR KATE MCCANN'S ANSWER: The children's door was wider open than before, the shutter was up, the window was open causing the door to clam shut, Madeleine was not there, the cover on the bed was folded over into a triangle shape, Cuddle Cat was lying on the top of the bed. And, er, that's about it.

46. What is the reason that the McCanns refused to pay for the evening baby-sitting service that was available for Mark Warners holiday guests?

DR KATE MCCANN'S ANSWER: We didn't want 'strangers' looking after our children, and in any case our half-hour checking system was better.


98. Does Dr Gerald McCann still stand by his claim that the evidence of the cadaver dogs is ‘notoriously unreliable’?

DR KATE MCCANN'S ANSWER: Yes.

100. As you may be aware, on British police advice, the Portuguese Police asked top dog handler Martin Grime to bring his springer spaniels, Eddie and Keela, to Praia da Luz. Eddie is trained to detect the scent of human corpses; Keela is trained to detect the presence of human blood. Eddie had never given a false alert in around 200 previous outings. He alerted to the odour of a human corpse in these locations: four different places in the McCanns’ apartment, two of Dr Kate McCann’s clothes, one of their children’s T-shirts, on the pink soft toy, ‘Cuddle Cat’, and in two places in the Renault Scenic that the McCanns hired. Eddie did not alert to a corpse scent anywhere else in Praia da Luz. Keela detected blood at some of these places. How do the McCanns best explain the ‘alerts’ of these two highly trained springer spaniels? (In 2008, Portuguese TV interviewer Sandra Felgueira asked Dr Gerald McCann: “How can you explain the scent of cadaver found by the British dogs?” Dr McCann answered, and we quote verbatim: “Ask the dogs, Sandra”).

DR KATE MCCANN'S ANSWER: The dogs reacted to the unprofessional Martin Grime who basically led the dogs to alert wherever he was interested himself; in other words, the dogs were merely seeking to please their owner and were not really alerting to anything.

I trust that that is a fair summary of what we have so far. If anyone thinks that Dr Kate McCann has answered or attempted to answer any of the remaining 159 questions we asked, please let me know.
