New book - The 10 most unsolvable unsolved disappearances

Post by biggles on 06.05.16 9:23

Found this new book reviewed on BoingBoing. I haven't read it, and haven't heard of the author either, but it looks like Madeleine Mccann comes in at #9

"The 10 most unsolvable unsolved disappearances" by James Renner

http://boingboing.net/2016/05/05/the-10-most-unsolvable-unsolve.html

snipped from the article:

"9. Madeleine McCann
Case Background: The disappearance of Madeleine McCann is easily the most publicized missing persons case this century. But for all the reports and news specials, the mystery remains unsolved. Madeleine was from Leicester, a city near the center of England. She was on vacation with her family at Praia da Luz, a Portugal resort, in May, 2007, a week before her fourth birthday, when she vanished from the ground-floor bedroom of a rented apartment near the beach. Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, had gone with friends to eat dinner at a restaurant a mere 160 feet from the apartment door. During the meal, members of their group went to check on Madeleine, who was sleeping in a bedroom with her younger siblings. The McCanns had left the patio door unlocked so they could easily come in and out to check on them. Madeleine’s mother discovered her daughter was missing sometime around 10 p.m. The bedroom window was open, the girl was gone.

Possible Solutions: How can a girl just disappear from a popular holiday resort? Was she abducted? Was her death accidental and her body hidden? Is she still alive? Early scrutiny fell on Madeleine’s parents but it’s very difficult to believe they could have had anything to do with some kind of rushed cover-up while dining with seven friends. And it was Madeleine’s father who reported the girl missing at 10:10 p.m. that night. In the last nine years, according to the BBC, police have taken 1,338 statements and have looked closely at 60 persons of interest. There have been over 8,000 reported sightings of Madeleine from all over the world – so many, in fact, that the sightings, alone, have their own Wikipedia page. In a recent interview, Kate McCann said she believes her daughter is still alive, and being held not far from Praia da Luz."

The only reason i can see why Madeleine McCann's case remains an unsolved, unsolvable crime is because the authorities refused to investigate the case properly. And i believe this case wasn't to solve the case anyway, but only to exonerate the parents of any wrongdoing. That is not how to solve such a crime, so it was doomed to be solved from the get go. Now all that is left is to wrap it up as being unsolvable, and after all the taxpayer money spent on this one case, maybe the authorities need to explain that to the public at the very least, because they deserve an answer.

That´s correct.
James Renner need to turn back the clock to Sunday, and that´s why this is one of the 10 most unsolvable unsolved disappearances.

Just realised that I got the title of wrong - it's actually "True Crime Addict" by James Renner.   ("The 10 most..." was the title of the review)

My understanding is that the article is just an article and isn't connected to the book which is about another intriguing disappearance - that of Maura Murray (the alliterative name is a weird coincidence). It's a fascinating case and Renner has done good work on his blog. He's clearly not looked into the McCann case in any depth.

This isn't true is it? Police weren't notified until 10.40 and I don't think ity was by Gerry?

According to Pat Brown, Criminal Profiler, Gerry McCann may have smuggled his daughter through British customs and back into the UK in a suitcase. Whilst Goncala Amaral is still of the firm belief that Madeleine's demise was an accident which warranted disposing of her body and concocting a spurious kidnapping fable. big grin

Well perhaps you could let us know what you think happened to Madeleine and we'll see if your theory is just as funny as you seem to think PB & GA's theories are? C'mon humor us, lol.
