Ruth Margaret McCann

Post by chillyheat on 20.11.13 1:29

The apartment where the McCanns stayed in the Algarve belongs to a... McCann
Strange coincidence

The house where the McCanns stayed in Praia da Luz, Lagos, belongs to a woman who is also called McCann, and not to the Ocean Club. When confronted with the possibility that this is a relative of Maddie's parents, Clarence Mitchell, the spokesman for the parents, denied the fact, saying it's "a strange and remarkable coincidence".

Fraction A, allotment 5, located at Rua Dr. Agostinho Silva, Urbanização Montes da Luz, Praia da Luz, is registered under matrix 3666. In 2001, the residence was bought by a sort of society that was composed of Daniel John Aldred, Michael William McCann, his daughter (from a first marriage) Donna Michelle Aldred, and his wife, Ruth Margaret McCann.

Michael McCann, who was born in Devonport, Plymouth, was a widower when he married Ruth Margaret Pittaway, who is presently 53 years old, also a widow, in 1987. In 2005, Michael and Ruth decided to buy the Aldred's part, and remained with 50% of the apartment each.

Later, in July 2006, Michael McCann died in Liverpool, and in November of the same year, Ruth McCann inherited her partner's part, and remained as sole proprietor of the apartment.

As for the Plymouth stuff – it could be either a coincidence or just extended family stuff. Gerry said he wasn’t related to Ruth McCann – which may be true – but then again Ruth McCann (from the Liverpool area) only married her husband in later life. Her husband, Michael McCann brought up his daughter (now Donna Aldred, nee McCann) in Plymouth – and she was schooled at a nearby convent.

This was with his first wife. he married Ruth – his second wife – very late in life. He died several years ago. Donna is in her early 40s. Apartment 5A was actually her and her husband’s apartment. She sold it to Ruth McCann – her stepmother a year or two before Madeleine went missing. Like Rachel Oldfield, Donna went to college in Cardiff.

Shaping up more like a scam, really. Or they simply didn’t want to drag Ruth and Donna McCann into all this – so denied their extended relationship.


Lets see if we can find out if they are related somehow....

They're not, as far as I could figure out. I spent a while looking at this before and couldn't find a connection.

(Happy to be proved wrong, though... )

....... Ruth McCann (from the Liverpool area)......
But since Gerry McCann is from Glasgow, I am more inclined to believe that it is just a coincidence. My phone book has half a page of McCann's - are they all related to Gerry? I doubt it. I just think it's a not uncommon Irish name.

Wasn't there another coincidental McCann too? Kate's father's GP, or something like that.

It's a very common Irish / Scottish name; out of the myriad of coincidences surrounding the case, I do think that this one is genuine.

Maybe the owners of the house and the apartment are related though? That would lessen the co-incidence a bit.

I wonder what happened to the value of the apartment? 

Also, incidentally, I wonder if the Ocean Club really suffered in bookings since? Imagine if you booked a holiday there without realising, then you were sitting around the pool or the tappas bar and it suddenly hit you! What a creepy and uncanny feeling that would be!

I remember on 3As Brunty had looked into this apparently and said that there was no connection.
ETA - just another coincidence.

Then there was the Nanny named Pauline McCann (nationality - Scottish) who arrived in PDL 29th April.  Again, no connection though as far as I'm aware.

That's the same one if I remember correctly.

Me neither. She's the owner of the apartment and NOT related to Doctors McCann.

ETA IIRC she had a hard time to sell her property [5A] at a reasonable price.

"registered under matrix 3666"
 
If all this were a horror mystery thriller, I'd feel it is a bit over the top.

Would it be usual to interview the owner of a suspected crime scene if they lived in another country and were not connected to the events or people involved?

As far as I know, she has not yet sold the apartment.

Considering it was her apartment you'd think they'd interview her if only to ask if anyone ever died in there when she was using it or bled

As far as I can remember, Snr Amaral has said there were no records of any previous deaths in the apartment.  Whether this included talking to R McCann directly it is not stated, but I would be confident it was investigated to a point where they were satisfied.
