Why would the Met tip their hand at this stage of the game? Why would they want to alert the McCanns if they in fact do consider them suspects?

A few years ago, a muckety-muck real estate agent was murdered in NYC. The official timeline, which was disputed by no one, had the agent's personal assistant leaving her boss's apartment at, say, 4pm; at 8pm, someone else discovered the agent dead in her apartment. Well, early in the investigation, the NYP announced, "We have interviewed the personal assistant and she is not considered a suspect." Two weeks later...they arrested that personal assistant (who was eventually convicted of murder).

My point it is: why do some posters here take every statement by SY to be literally true or as lacking nuance? It's common for the next-of-kin of missing people to be given updates on police investigations. That doesn't mean the police tell the next-of-kin everything and it does not mean the police are not closely watching the same next-of-kin to whom they are giving updates.


Its just the fact that SY have previous , then there is the FSS  , and the pressure placed on Amaral , then the dismisal of the dogs findings , crime watch , the Police all jumping on the same aircraft as the McCann's when they scarpered out of PDL . the list goes on and on ......

What are they supposed to say, that the McCanns are prime suspects? That will ensure they get a fair trial - not!

Of course they will update the McCanns. They are the parents of a missing child. What information they give them is another matter.
Completely agree,  the substance of the information SY is giving them is crucial. Having read about the McCann response on their official facebook page, where they actually said that SY are investigating the 'football stadium sighting', I'm of the opinion that in no way are SY talking to the macs in the way they would like. I mean do they really expect us to believe SY would open a new file on a picture of a girl who is clearly too young, but it is also clearly not Madeleine.

Talking about the McCann case she told Rowley: “Looking at what was said in Leveson and what Leicestershire Police didn’t guide on re[garding] whether the family were suspects, a bit of guidance there would have saved the family an awful lot of stress actually.

My position remains the same as before- until a whitewash is complete, I will keep on being hopeful. It's my prerogative.

Search: Detectives say they will be making 'substantial' efforts in their hunt to find missing Madeleine McCann over the coming weeks

Detectives looking for Madeleine McCann will begin 'substantial' work on their investigation in Portugal within weeks.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police are working with Portuguese police during a fresh phase of their hunt for the missing girl, who disappeared aged three on a family holiday in the resort of Praia da Luz.

Mark Rowley, the assistant commissioner of the force, said: 'In the forthcoming weeks we are going to be going to a substantial phase of operational activity on the ground in Portugal.

'A thorough serious crime investigation works systematically through all the credible possibilities, and often in an investigation you will have more than one credible possibility'.

However, he warned that they may not come up with answers quickly - or at all.

The announcement came weeks after detectives were spotted using a helicopter to take aerial photos in the holiday resort where Madeleine disappeared after being left in her room by parents Gerry and Kate McCann.

Police were then preparing to excavate three areas in the resort in the hope of turning up clues. Though they were not given permission to conduct the dig themselves, experts were on hand to oversee the work - including those trained to detect bodies.

British police officers have been negotiating with their Portuguese counterparts throughout the search.

It is thought they have requested permission to question eight crucial witnesses in their investigation. However other requests - including plans to raid homes of prime suspects - were refused.

Mr Rowley said: 'I want to be able to go back to Kate and Gerry at some stage in the future and tell them we’ve got to the bottom of this, or second best is to go back to them and say we’ve turned over every stone and we can’t get to an answer sometimes'.

A number of officers from Scotland Yard are hoping to be involved in the latest phase of activity, though it is being led by the Portuguese.

Mr and Mrs McCann have been briefed on the activity, but will not travel to Portugal while the work is being carried out.

'The activity in Portugal is led by the Portuguese, that’s absolutely crystal clear in law,' Mr Rowley said.

'We have some officers who would like to be helping with that on the ground in Portugal, doing some of the work we anticipate. We are putting the finishing touches to the plans to the Portuguese in the coming weeks'.

He added: 'I anticipate a substantial phase of activity in forthcoming weeks including Portuguese and British officers but the detail of that is still being finalised with Portuguese colleagues and it will all be under Portuguese leadership.'

One line of inquiry for Scotland Yard is a lone male paedophile who staged a series of sex attacks on young British girls while they were on holiday in the Algarve.

They are looking at nine sexual assaults and three 'near misses' on British girls aged six to 12 between 2004 and 2006, including one in 2005 on a 10-year-old girl in Praia da Luz, where Madeleine vanished two years later.

Hundreds of people have already made contact with police in response to appeals to try to find the attacker.

Mr Rowley warned that, after sifting through all the possible lines of inquiry, officers may draw a blank.

'There’s lots of potential lines of inquiry', he said. 'If we didn’t think there were any potentially fruitful lines of inquiry, we wouldn’t be where we are today; we would be saying there’s nowhere to go with this investigation.

'There are many potential fruitful lines of inquiry and the only way you get anywhere is to work through them all systematically.

'Within that may be the answer and the case may be potentially solvable. We may be able to work through potential lines of inquiry over a period of time with the Portuguese and all of them draw a blank, that can happen'.

The McCann wont suddenly become the prime suspects until they find the burglar wearing the T-shirt with the big 'O'.  So that's another 20 years of discussion on this forum.

The other thing about a whitewash, re finding a patsy - it's going to be a massive struggle to find a suitable candidate.  First of all, they must be dead.  Second, it will have to be someone who has no family or anyone concerned about keeping their reputation.  This case is so high profile that I'm sure lots of lawyers would jump at the chance to defend someone who by definition must be innocent. I just don't think it could be feasibly done with all the media attention this case has.

I honestly don't think its the media that's the problem for the white-washers; they will be as compliant and lazy as they always are and will print, sometimes verbatim, what the government/SY press releases tell them to print. I think sites like this and the independent bloggers are the real problem where the cover-up nonsense can be, and often is, deconstructed and exposed for the nonsense that it is.

I wouldn't trust anything the DM prints regarding SY, unless it's on the official SY website.

The DM have morons working for them who can't spell, have no idea of putting a simple sentence together and can't think for themselves.

If you read anything on their website it's probably been plucked out of thin air by a college leaver with no experience of journalism work but is taken on just to fill out some column spaces.   They show no respect for families* in their reporting of terrible crimes, road deaths, hospital blunders, it's embarrassing reading the reports some days.  As long as they get the story out it doesn't seem to matter whether it's accurate or not.

It would be interesting to know if Kieran Corcoran actually wrote that whole piece or if he left it to some other person to write on his behalf.
.
* only respect for the McCanns it seems

You got it! Thanks for posting the info that the McCanns posted that on their website. That "sighting" was a joke, if not an actual sham (meaning contrived by some McCann supporter). The child resembled Madeleine as she looked when she disappeared only in that they both have blond hair, which is true of about 30% of three year olds of English/Celtic ancestry. More significantly, the child spotted at the soccer match looked as young or younger as Madeleine was seven years ago! The idea that SY spent even thirty seconds investigating this is preposterous, and the fact that the McCanns would post that on their website tells me they are very isoltaed these days because any sober intelligent person they consulted would have said, "Um, I wouldn't put that on the website..."

Of course, the main point of the spotting at the soccer match is that the idea that some agile, clever bogeyman stalked the McCanns in Portugal and bypassed their younger daughter to abscond through a window with 3/4 year old child with whom they disappeared without a trace to raise in England as their own child is absurd.

Just typing the above gave me hope that the truth will out. If SY ends up officially endorsing the idea that a stranger grabbed Madeleine and spirited her away, that will spur an enormous backlash. Maybe SY won't end up having the guts to directly implicate the McCanns, but I don't see how they can make a claim that it must have been a stranger who took her. I also think they would have to say something about the cadaver dogs, even if just to pooh-pooh them.

Well, let's wait and see, shall we.

The proof of the pudding and all that.

IF they can get the proof/evidence they need, then I am optimistic of a just outcome.

I stand to be proved wrong, but I hope I'm not.

Yes I agree, and I nearly went back to edit my post after I'd submitted it, but couldn't be bothered  big grin

But it would be beggaring belief to think that they wouldn't be looking at it, whereas some of the other assertions are just ridiculous.

But I do agree that I should have reworded my last sentence  big grin

You bluff for a reason (usually because you're weak) and I can see nothing that bluffing achieves here that silence and a straight emotionless face would also achieve

I'll be playing on-line soon too. My best moments are when everyone chickens, whilst I have nothing or when I keep modest and they call my bluff, raise ... and lose  big grin 

Strategy.

Why do posters think there will be a enormous backlash if it does turn out to be a whitewash, does anyone outside of the internet dwellers (like ouselves) know any different or really care? You will probably find that presumed dead by persons unknown, case closed. This then leads to sympathy for the parents by those whose knowledge is onl what they've read in the press. No real backlash at all if you ask me. All IMO obviously.

Mr Rowley added: "I want to be able to go back to Kate and Gerry at some stage in the future and tell them we've got to the bottom of this, or second best is to go back to them and say we've turned over every stone and we can't get to an answer sometimes.”

What a waste of money if it turns out to be nothing, end game ?

You - and none of us - have absolutely no idea what SY have spent the past years looking at.

We have absolutely no idea what evidence they have found, if any,  for any particular scenario.

We have absolutely no idea what they have looked at regarding "the one scenario where there is a fair bit of evidence."

There are too many people jumping to all sorts of conclusions about exactly what SY have and have not done.

"They won't even look at it"? FFS! Of course they are looking at it! They aren't morons, not all 36 of them or however many there are!!

Agreed  thumbsup
