BBC Reconstruction / Tapas seating plan 3rd May 2007

Post by Nereid on 14.10.13 12:02

On sky there is a preview of tonight’s reconstruction, where the McCann and friends are shown at the Tapas restaurant:

http://news.sky.com/story/1154059/madeleine-mccann-suspects-e-fit-released

Here is that table plan of that fateful night according to Kate:



I have taken some screenshots from the reconstruction video:




It shows Kate, Gerry and Rachel. Jane (out of view in this shot) is sat next to Gerry. There may (or must) be another chair between Jane and Rachel (empty, Russell or Matthew).

 

Dianne, Fiona and David arrive. There is still one empty seat on view. This goes against what Russell said in his statement of 4th May 2007: “At around 7.15/7.30pm, the informant went back to his apartment. He read stories to his daughters, including **** who was feeling better. His partner, Jane, went to have dinner at the "TAPAS" restaurant at around 8.30pm and he went there at around 8.45pm. When he arrived at the restaurant, nearly all the adults were present, without children, with the exception of David, Fiona and Diane. They arrived more or less 5 minutes later.

And again in his statement of 11th May 2007: “When he arrived at the restaurant, all the adults were there, without the children. David and Fiona were missing and Dianne Webster. They arrived more or less 10 minutes after.”


They're seated but still an empty chair next to David.

So, starting with Kate and going clockwise we have these two versions of the table seating:



Kate’s version

I have taken some liberties with guessing who is who in the BBC construction preview, so please correct if you think otherwise.

I'm not sure what to make of this. Is this another change on top of the new timeline?

It also shows Kate and Gerry with their BACKS to the pool, and therefore with no chance of seeing anything

Too right!

We'll have to wait til tonight's programme and maybe it'll become clear why that chair is empty. And who is sitting in between Jane and Rachel. If it was Matthew, then where is Russell?

Wonder if they have included this person in the reconstruction?

NAJOVA CHEKAYA (Aerobics Instructor/Quiz Organiser)
Najova Chekaya is the aerobics teacher running the quiz. She was invited over to the McCann table by Mr McCann himself when the game ended at 9.30. She stayed for half an hour. She later claimed to friends that nobody left the table. Najova Chekaya lives in Flitwick, Bedford

Must have been a tight squeeze. They kept switching places too, were they playing musical chairs?

Who was it that "changed his trousers"? Matthew or Russell?

10-PROCESSO 10 VOLUME Xa (Pages 2539 to 2551) Kate Marie Healy's statement 06/09/07 @ 3.00pm
KATE MARIE HEALY ' STATEMENT
(from DVD)

September 6/2007 3pm at Portimao
On May 3 they all woke between 7;30 and 8:00 AM;
When she finished jogging, around 5:20/5:30PM she went to the Tapas area. Gerry was there, as well as the twins and Madeleine who were eating at separate tables. Madeleine had been taken to the Tapas by the nannies. Her parents were required to sign the register when the meal was over. During the meal Kate asked Madeleine if she was sad because the other children in the group had gone to the beach without her: she replied that she wasn't, but was rather tired. She asked Kate to carry her back to the apartment. Kate agreed, and Gerry led the twins back to the apartment. Tiredness was due to the intense daily activities, not to any sickness.

They arrived at the apartment around 5:40PM, earlier than usual, because Madeleine was tired, their other friends were at the beach and Gerry had an all-male tennis game at 6:00PM. At the flat they both bathed the children, and close to 6:00PM Gerry went to the tennis courts, soon after the children had finished their bath. They entered the apartment by the main door, with the key. She does not know if it was locked, and presumes it was Gerry who opened it. At lunch time they also entered by the same door.

After the children's bath, already alone, she put pyjamas and nappies on the twins, gave them each a glass of milk and biscuits. Before bathing the children and because it was early, they had thought of taking them to the recreation area, but then decided against this because of tiredness.

While the children were eating and looking at some books, Kate had a shower which lasted around 5 minutes. After showering, at around 6:30/6:40PM and while she was getting dry, she heard somebody knocking at the veranda door. She wrapped herself in a towel and went to see who it was. This door was closed but not locked as Gerry had left by this door. She confirmed it was David Payne, because he called out and had opened the door slightly. David's visit was to help her to take the children to the recreation area. When David returned from the beach he was with Gerry at the tennis courts, and it was Gerry who asked him to help Kate with taking the children to the recreation area, which had been arranged but did not take place. David was at the apartment for around 30 seconds, he didn't actually enter the flat, he remained at the veranda door. According to her he then left for the tennis courts where Gerry was. The time was around 6:30-6:40PM.

After David left, Kate dressed and sat with the children, Madeleine on her lap. She was wearing a top, she doesn't remember what colour it was, a green long-sleeved t-shirt, blue denim pants. Trainers (tennis shoes) and white socks.

She read a story to the children in the living room, on the sofa in front of the door to the veranda, identified on the diagram with the letter D. At 7:00 PM Gerry arrived and entered via the veranda door. He sat on the sofa identified with letter E. Doesn't know if the story was finished, but thinks she was sitting on the sofa.

SHE (KM) MAKES A SKETCH OF THE TABLE AND SAYS THAT BOTH SHE AND GERRY WERE NOT FACING THE APARTMENTS Sketch attached.
BUT

04-Processo 4 Pages 891 to 903 Gerald McCann 10 May 2007

He, GM, relates that they were seated at the table in a position that allowed the deponent (GM) to see almost the entire rear door of his apartment through which they left and entered and which gave access to the lounge.

You'd honestly think that they would have gotten their SEATING 'crib sheets' right, wouldn't you?

He must have eyes in the back of his head as well as x-ray and night vision. And yet he failed to see Jane Tanner.

Well, we know he's got a mouth in his undercrackers, because he's always talking out of it!

We know now where Russell was sitting. Between Jane and Rachel. And Matthew was absent when the Paynes/Webster arrived. All according to the reconstruction anyway. Too tired to check Matthew's statement. Does anyone know from memory?
