Edgar - from the article:

"
He told how it was much harder trying to crack the case as an investigator than a detective.
He said: “My hands were tied to a great extent and I could only do so much. I had no access to intelligence to do even simple checks and could never go outside the law. I can’t help Kate and Gerry now because Scotland Yard don’t want me trampling on their path. But when their operation is finally wound down and if I’m ever needed in my role as an investigator it would go back to square one. It would be a cold case and I couldn’t just pick up from where the police had left off.”


If his hands were tied then, why wouldn't they be in the future?

If 13 million pound aint a great deal to search for missing Maddie where does he think the £500,000 or so left in the kitty will get them?

Oh hang on, maybe he will hire an elite dog after all to search the lawless hills.   yes

Just my opinion, but that sounds creepy.

I can't imagine myself as a male saying that about someone else's little girl, even a friends.

Maybe it's within today's normal bounds and I am outdated.
Any more than I can imagine a male bathing someone else's little girl - or boy - nor commenting or someone else's children looking like angels all dressed in white, or words to that effect.
 
If you're outdated then I'm positively prehistoric.

If I had forked out on a PI for a number of years and zilcho at the end of it, I certainly would not re-hire that PI again.

In fact why would anyone hire any other PI after two police forces and a very, very considerable amount of money has been spent and no further on?  The polices' hands are not tied, but a PI's hands are.  As per, nothing seems to make sense.

Has Grange been in touch and told him to back off ?
Have they spoken to him about what the McCanns told him - which he admitted in Portugal was his only source of information, and seems to confirm here

I hope so !

I wonder what Dave Edgar had to sign as a confidentiality agreement with his employer?

He did say that if he found anything against the McCanns he would report it to Scotland Yard.

As 'Gene Hunt' said on twitter: "Dave Edgar would have trouble finding a packet of biscuits in a supermarket"


From our Rogue of the Day thread:


Dave Edgar

Cheshire resident Dave Edgar was a retired police Detective Inspector. The Cheshire businessman Brian Kennedy, who was responsible for managing the McCanns’ controversial private investigation, appointed him in November 2008 to lead the investigation. This followed the debacle of the previous investigation led by rogue and crook Kevin Halligen, who will appear on ‘Rogue of the Day’ before long.

Edgar didn’t look for Madeleine but was paid to carry out his master’s directions. His initial task was to ‘beef up’ a TV documentary released by Channel 4 in May 2009, which simply regurgitated, uncritically, the McCanns’ claims that Madeleine had been abducted. He was wheeled out during the documentary to proclaim the McCanns ‘totally innocent’. When the documentary shed light on a major contradiction between two key witnesses, he calmly brushed this aside by saying: ‘You always get discrepancies when witnesses try to remember the same event’. Throughout his work for the McCanns, he was noted as promoting any old line that suited the moment.

Thus, when the McCanns were promoting an especially unlikely story that Madeleine had been abducted by a Victoria Beckham-lookalike on a yacht bound for Australia, Edgar threw caution to the wind and calmly told a TV press conference: “The person seen by Jane Tanner on the night Madeleine disappeared might have been a woman, not a man”. At this point, his rapidly vanishing credibility slumped right down to zero.

I've read on the forum that the company called Alphaig, or described as Alpha something or other is no longer in existence (bless Doug D).

So why are the media waiting on the sideline to promote that this company is still in existence and Dave Edgar is still heading up the company?

Possibly because the company is a complete sham?

What do I know eh?

Always had my suspicions (although no evidence) that the AIG (Alpha Investigation Group) name was specifically chosen as people would associate it with the Man Utd shirt sponsor at the time, (‘American International Group’ the American Insurance firm, which was relatively little known) which would seemingly give it some credence.

Why would a UK national newspaper be still promoting Dave Edgar as running a private investigation company and be willing to step into the breech to help the McCanns when Scotland Yard abandon them and leave them alone to do their own investigation?

Edgar is right up there with Donal MacIntyre who disproved the abduction scenario while trying to show how it all happened. The video is somewhere on Youtube and is undiluted lunacy.

Then there's comedy gold from Summers and Swann with the man who entered apartments with yards of unravelling bandages on his feet.

And how could we forget DCI Redwood's profound observation "she may be alive or sadly she may be dead"?

The man is an absolute nobody. The only company he's been a director of, is Emerald Investigations Limited, and again, this so-called company was set up in 2009, and has now been dissolved. Both this company, and Alphaig Limited were non starter businesses, but 2009 appears to be a significant year for opening these businesses. If I had to hazard a guess, I would say they were set up to receive payments from the investigation, and for no other purpose, whatsoever.

He's not a nobody in the case of Madeleine McCann. He's described as a crack detective, has described himself as the only professional private investigator and has sat alongside Clarence Mitchell in a press conference to promote Victoria Beckham lookalike.

Agreed, plus the companies weren't created just to facilitate payment but to add authenticity and gravitas to the Edgar appointment.

Without them setting up a company, it would mean payments would have to have gone into their PERSONAL bank accounts, and that wouldn't look very professional, would it? Who is going to take "an investigator" seriously, if they haven't got a legitimate business? As I've said............he's a nobody.

Post by sallypelt on 03.04.17 22:52

This is copied and pasted from Hideho's website:

Author:  John Whitehouse

Published by The Madeleine Foundation, 5 May 2011

 
 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE

 

After the successive debacles of the McCanns and Brian Kennedy appointing first the controversial Spanish detective agency Metodo 3 and then fraudster Kevin Halligen, supposedly to search for Madeleine, they then appointed local retired detective inspector Dave Edgar to ‘lead the hunt for Madeleine’ in November 2008.

 

Edgar was then based in the H.Q. of the private investigation office run by Brian Kennedy, a house in Knutsford bought by Kennedy for that purpose in the summer of 2007. Edgar did not at that time, nor has he since, either owned, part-owned or ‘run’ a company known as ‘Alpha Investigations Group’. His claim to do so is a sham.

 

In fact, one of Brian Kennedy’s right-hand men, Andrew Dickman, registered the domain name www.alphaig.co.uk on 12 January 2009, some four months before the McCann Team misled the media and the public into thinking that Dave Edgar ran a prestigious-sounding company called ‘Alpha Investigations Group’.

 

Despite much publicity and hype about Edgar’s ‘Alpha Investigations Group’ in May 2009, in fact the company being referred to was actually called ‘ALPHAIG’. It was not registered until after May - on  10 June 2009. Despite claims that Edgar, or Edgar and a colleague, Arthur Cowley, run ALPHAIG, it is a company wholly owned by Arthur Cowley. The registered address of the company, ‘Treetops’, in the remote Flintshire hamlet of Pant-y-Gof, is a property situated  down a remote farm track and cul-de-sac, which may be unoccupied. ALPHAIG has no web presence, and does not give out any contact details. Its summary accounts, released in January this year, revealed inter alia that it had fixed assets worth just £630, hardly the kind of assets associated with a significant private investigations company.

 

Edgar’s main role over the past two years appears to have been to talk up as ‘strong leads’ claims - which are frankly bogus - that Madeleine may have been taken by a Victoria Beckham-lookalike on a yacht to Australia, may be held in a prison lair near Praia da Luz, may have been seen in Dubai, may have been taken to the U.S. as claimed by an Angolan basketball-playing bouncer, or may have been taken by an unnamed gypsy gang leader, details of whom were given by a dying paedophile in a German hospital to his long-estranged son, who in turn claims to have burnt that letter before proceeding to tell the Sun all about it.

 

The public have been told that they should buy Dr Kate McCann’s new book, due out on 12 May, in order to ‘continue the search for Madeleine’. Dr McCann has said that the book could ‘raise £1 million’, which she and the McCann Team say would pay for Dave Edgar and his ‘team of detectives’ to continue looking for Madeleine for a further two years.

 

On the evidence of this article, they would be wasting their money.

David Edgar, it is claimed, was a "detective inspector" who "retired"from the RUC. Didn't Jim Gamble retire from the same force? Jim Gamble has a Wiki entry. As for David Edgar, if it wasn't for his involvement in the Maddie case, he's conspicuous by his absence. For someone who "retired" from such a prestigious position, he virtually doesn't exist.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government


Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
