Kate Healy's Mystery Cousin

Post by Daisy on 17.02.12 16:30

Who is Kate's mystery cousin? I don't believe I've come across this relative. All media reports I've read state Brian & Janet Kennedy have one son - James Kennedy. (the boyfriend of McCann witness Hayley Plummer - Nursery teacher to Madeleine in Leicestershire, just another amazing coincidence). Even the research sites only mention this one son. But in Janet Kennedy's police statement she says:

Quote Janet Kennedy: I am married to Brian KENNEDY. We have two children together,
now adults. One of them has a child of his/her own. Brian has a
sister whose name is Susan Healy who is the mother of Kate
Healy/McCann; Kate is married to Gerald McCann and has three
children, Madeleine, Sean and Amelie. Kate was the bridesmaid
when I married Brian and has maintained a close relationship
with our family since adolescence,
because she is an only child
and was part of a very close group with our children.


This other cousin of Kate's must be the one with the child because James didn't have children at the time of his mother's statement. I can understand why relatives would want to stay out of the limelight but this cousin (according to JK's statement) had a close relationship growing up with Kate & was also a parent. Why haven't we seen any support from this close family member? Who is she/he, has anyone come across this mystery cousin?

Could it be her?

Yorkshire

Kate returns to the UK for the first time since Madeleine's disappearance, with twins Sean and Amelie - she is accompanied from Portugal by Michael Wright (husband of her cousin Anne-Marie Wright), who was returning to the UK for the christening of his own children.

Gerry, Kate and the twins attend the baptism in Skipton, Yorkshire, where they stand as Godparents to the Wright's two children.

I don't think so Moa. According to this report Anne-Marie Wright is the cousin of Kate's mother, so that would mean Kate's second cousin. I may be wrong here but I believe Kate's Uncle Jack & Aunty Val could be Anne-Marie's parents? Edit: scrap the underlined bit that can't be correct

Anne Marie Wright's mother is named as Shelia Cowell so it defintely can't be her.

"The
Wright family first heard of Madeleine's disappearance in the early
hours of Friday May 4, when Mrs Wright's Mum, Sheila Cowell Called with the news..."
(thought to be sister of Kate's dad Brian Healy)

Whichever way they are related or not, the Wrights seem to figure very prominently in Kate and Gerry's lives.
Now didn't Gerry turn up in a kilt at their wedding?
There is some kind of connection to the priest who officiated at that wedding, because he got to know the McCanns from then on - and gave them a five star character reference...

Another interesting family angle is that Gerry phoned Mrs. Healy before he phoned his own family on 3/5.
I'm pretty sure that the Wrights were phoned that night as well.

The other thing about the Wrights is that I believe Michael W. is an IT consultant.

What I also find interesting that the religious virus spread to the Wrights as well? Why would they suddenly get their two children baptised? their ages 10 and 12 or thereabouts.

According to the Maddie Case Files, Sheila Cowell has two children - Anne-Marie and Simon. No, not THAT Simon Cowell! This one is married to Miriam and lives on the Isle of Man.

I can't see how it can rainbow-fairy? AMW's mother is sister to kate's dad Brian Healy. Kate's mum's brother is Brian Kennedy. Edit: Sorry didn't see your 2nd post

Maybe the mystery cousin is male & being the first born is named after his father - Brian and they didn't want to confuse matters further by having three Brian kennedy's involved? That's a joke btw nowt malicious or imflammatory intended.

Does anyone know what Janet Kennedy's maiden name was, and possibly what county they married in?
Then I should be able to find the mystery cousin.

Now that's a plan Bristow! (any relation to eric? ) Hmm.. I suspect they could have married in Merseyside but that's just a hunch based on Kate's mother being from there. It says in JK's statement they moved to Rothley in 1982, she doesn't say where from, only that both her & her husband had worked in schools in & around Leicestershire Birmingham for many years. Sorry, none of this helps does it?

I just find it really strange that this particular relative has kept out of the way, so much so that all media reports say the Kennedy's have one son (Perhaps that's the truth, the other one could be female). Whoever it is they haven't come forward with support for their cousin Kate or have they? If we don't know who it is how can we say?

I think that the other cousin is female.

Brian and Janet were married in Gloucestershire in 1973. James was born in 1976.

Is this any help?
From the diary May 07.:

Sunday 6: '...despite my fragility I was determined to go to Mass... We all, family and friends, went to mass at the local church.' (p.106). That first Sunday saw two further arrivals in Luz: my childhood friends Michelle and Nicky. Both wanted to be with me... Alan (Pike) planted in our minds the idea of reducing the size of our support group... Listening to Alan it all seemed so obvious... after giving the matter some thought' (p.109)... 'we ended up getting down to the nitty-gritty... that Sunday evening.' (p.110).

Thanks for the help guys.

Uppatoffee has found this missing cousin but she doesn't appear to have anything to do with the case so it would be unfair to name her. She's obviously kept her distance for a reason. I just thought it could be someone we already knew but it isn't - so that's that one put to bed.

I understand the privacy aspect Daisy, but can't help thinking that those who fly under the radar, so to speak, could have significant reason for doing so? If that makes sense... Wink

Yes, that makes sense rainbow-fairy, i'm with you. But chances are she's totally innocent & has kept out of the limelight to protect her family, so it would be totally out of order for us to name her on a public forum. I'm sure we all agree on that?

With relatives like theirs, wouldn't you want to hide?

Post by Guest on 18.02.12 14:46

Yes I'm happy with that. There's also of course a sister of Gerry's who has never made any public comments about the case and there are no known published photos of her.

Slightly off topic but as topic was closed I thought I'd add this.

Hayley Jane Plummer nursery nurse at the Laurel's & in charge of Madeleine was going out with James Kennedy.

Looks like she also sometimes looked after Madeleine outside of nursery too:

"As a couple, James and I would take care of Madeleine and the twins in their house in Rothley about every two months, for a few hours each time."

AND the teaching assistant Sharon Lewin:

"When she was two and a half she joined the group supervised by me, I think it was in 2006, and she remained there for about 6 months. Madeleine attended on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

She would be dropped off between 08.00 and 08.30 and would return home at about 17.00. The dropping off and picking up was taken in turns by the parents and as a result of this Kate and Gerry asked me to take care of the children during the evening on some occasions. Kate would pick Madeleine up from the nursery at the end of the day and I would accompany them to their house. We would have tea and I would help give Madeleine her bath.

Kate and Gerry would go out and I would watch a DVD with the girl before telling her a bedtime story.
I think I did this about 5 times and on each occasion it was at their home in Rothley.

I always think of Madeleine as an alert and affectionate girl who liked to live. She was very advanced for her age and independent. She liked to dance and to dress up."


They certainly had plenty of people to take care of the children, didn't they?

Didn't they also have a nanny? Who went off to Canada just before PdL?
I take it there was also a cleaner, so as far as staff was concerned, the children shouldn't have been too much of a burden. Which explains the diary, which is full of children being difficult - as if she wasn't used to them being difficult. They didn't seem to know what to do with them to stop their tantrums. Perhaps they'd never had much to do with the nitty gritty part of having toddlers.

Interesting that bolded bit Genbug. Because I remember reading Gerry McCann's statement where he claims he and his wife had only been out together ONCE in an evening since the birth of the twins, Someone's telling porkies - again! I'll try & find it.

Edit: GM Aruido statement Sept 07:
When questioned about
whether the couple's and the children's life was peaceful, namely regarding the
work that three children can give a couple, as well as the stress this can
cause, he replies that in fact since the birth of the twins their life has been
very busy, and that especially during the twins' first year life was difficult.
He states that since the twins were born, he and Kate have gone out in the
evening only once, leaving the children with relatives.
He adds that in spite
of this he never saw Kate depressed as a result of too much work. He denies
that Kate changed her work habits for reasons related to depression. He asserts
that his wife never suggested to him that at some time she had the intention of
handing Madeleine into the care of a family member

I've always believed that the 'neglect' story was just that - a story - to allow for 'abduction' to be possible. This just confirms it for me.
Are we really expected to believe that they were so prudent regarding childcare at home (and abroad, during the day!) and yet come nightfall in a foreign holiday resort they decide to leave their apartment unsecured? With valuables AND children unattended?
I'm sorry, that is stretching incredulity waaay too far.
