'Suspect/Sighting of the Day': A list of known suspects in the Madeleine McCann case

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 13.10.17 13:54


Another thread to compliment 'Rogue of the Day'.

Anyone can post a picture of a suspect with a description or press release etc.

Let's see how many we can find, from eggman right up to present day Operation Grange suspects. Let's see how the Police have been spending all those millions of pounds on chasing anyone other than those Eddie and Keela alerted to.

I'll start with Jane Tanner's 'eggman':





Madeleine suspect picture 'like an egg with hair' breakingnews.ie
 
Wednesday, 09 May, 2007

2:36:47 PM

 
A computer-generated image which police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann refuse to release to the public was described today as "an egg with hair".

Plain-clothes detectives have been touring the Algarve village of Praia da Luz in Portugal after Madeleine's disappearance six days ago asking shopkeepers and locals if they recognise the potential suspect.

Although the image has been shown to individuals, police have refused to release it to the public because of an information black-out on the investigation, citing strict Portuguese laws.

The investigative Policia Judiciaria (PJ) has been criticised over its handling of the case, in part because of the lack of information.

One of those shown the image was Simon Russell, 40, a half-English, half-Portuguese man who runs a video store and internet café in the resort town.

He said today that a group of four or five plain-clothes police came into his shop on Saturday afternoon and asked him if he had seen anything suspicious.

After asking him if he had seen anyone accessing suspicious websites, they took him into a back room away from the customers and discreetly slipped out the crude image asking him if he recognised the person.

He said: "They just showed me this outline which apparently gave me the impression that it had high cheekbones and a long face but other than that, no eyes, no nose, no mouth, so I call it an egg, it was an egg with hair."

He went on: "I have heard that other people who have been interviewed have said that there were clothes involved. The police never asked me about anything to do with clothing.

"All I got was an impression of a head with hair with a side parting.

"I smiled when they showed it to me. What else could anyone do?"

He went on to say that the image was not even recognisable as an e-fit.

"It didn't look like it had been drawn, it didn't look like a photograph, it looked like something that had been created maybe on a computer – but there were no features.

"It was completely different from anything I have seen in the newspapers - there were no features, there were no ears."

There were claims today that the PJ had even held back from showing the image to Portugal's main police force, the PSP.

A PSP source told the Diario de Noticias newspaper that the PJ had failed to disclose the image to the other force until Monday – four days after Madeleine's disappearance.

The source told the newspaper that he felt it was extremely counterproductive to have that portrait and not to pass it to other police forces or even publish it more widely.

"It is time to set aside petty pride and rivalry between police forces," he is quoted as saying.

A Spanish journalist who claimed that the disappearance of four-year-old Madeleine McCann was linked to a international paedophile ring has been questioned by police.


A spokesman for Portuguese police said Antonio Toscano, 36, was interviewed by police for two hours yesterday but added that they were "cautious" about treating the information as a new lead.


Mr Toscano had told the media he believed a man known as The Frenchman, who he said was involved in a Europe-wide paedophile network, was linked to Madeleine's disappearance.

He claimed The Frenchman was overheard saying he was travelling to the Algarve before Madeleine went missing from her room in the resort of Praia da Luz on May 3 while her parents, Gerry and Kate, were eating in a restaurant 100 yards away.

Police confirmed Mr Toscano originally contacted them several weeks ago but gave few details. He has described himself as an "investigator" who specialises in missing person cases.

A spokeswoman for the McCann family would not comment on Mr Toscano's claims but said Madeleine's parents were urging anyone with information to come forward.

MAIL: SATURDAY 08 AUGUST 2009 By Tom Kelly and Claire Ellicott
Last updated at 9:51 AM on 08th August 2009

The woman detectives are hunting in the search for Madeleine McCann asked a British tourist if he was about to deliver her 'new daughter'.

The woman, who had an Australian accent, spoke to a British businessman in Spain just three days after the youngster disappeared.

She had been acting in an 'agitated' manner outside a bar in Barcelona and, when approached, asked the man: 'Are you here to deliver my new daughter?', a source close to the investigation said last night.

The tourist, who was chaperoning his brother on a stag party, was too shocked to reply and the woman repeated the question twice more. A second member of the party also spoke to the woman before she left.

It is believed that the woman mistook the witness for a man she had arranged to meet.

Investigators yesterday issued an urgent appeal for information about the woman, described as a 'glamorous and well turned out' Victoria Beckham lookalike.

Dave Edgar, the retired detective hired by Kate and Gerry McCann to lead a private inquiry, said it was very possible the youngster was smuggled into Barcelona by yacht from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz where she disappeared in May 2007.


Yesterday he revealed an image of the woman, thought to be Australian, at a press conference in London, appealing for help in finding her.

Madeleine McCann 'fraud' couple arrested at hideout in Portugal

Danilo Chemello and Aurora Pereira Vaz were first held in southern Spain in 2007, after they allegedly tried to swindle Gerry and Kate McCann by attempting to pocket a £2.5million reward for information on Madeleine’s whereabouts.

They were quizzed two months after she went missing, but the case never went to trial.

MELISSA FIERING (18 ) Year 2007

Melissa Fiering, a student, claims she saw Madeleine McCann in a cafe on 15th February. She described the dark-skinned male to sketch artist Emre Altin, 28, exclusively for the The Daily Mirror. Speaking at her home in Nijmegen, Holland the travel and tourism student said of the police-style e-fit: "This is definitely an accurate likeness of the man I saw. I'd recognise him straight away if the police found him." Melissa said the person she saw in Montpellier, southern France, was about 6ft, in his late 30s, possibly Algerian, with slightly receding hair and a distinctive sharp jaw line. He wore a black leather jacket and "looked quite rough". French police viewed the CCTV videos and concluded that the child was not Madeleine.

FBI psychics turn up face of Maddy 'killer'

A DRAWING of a man two FBI psychics say snatched Madeleine McCann has been produced by an American TV programme.



By Mark Parker

PUBLISHED:  00:00, Sun, Oct 19, 2008

Now investigators working for Kate and Gerry McCann say they want to see the so-called evidence revealed in the programme, which was screened last week in the US.

The drawing is of a man aged between 36 and 42 with thick dark brown or black hair and stubble. It has now been handed over to police in Portugal.

It was produced by two psychic criminal profilers who work closely with the FBI in America.

A spokesman for the McCanns said that although they were deeply sceptical of information from psychics, they want their private investigators to examine the information which was broadcast.

“If they have given their files to the police in Portugal they should also pass them on to our investigators,” said Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns spokesman, who gave a brief interview to the programme makers.

'Creepy man' reportedly seen by Paul Gordon and Gail Cooper, a week before the McCanns arrived, which resulted in the infamous 'George Harrison' sketch and the 'police-style' press conference in London.

Portuguese police dismissed the sketch as having "no credibility" and officers accused the McCanns of diverting attention away from themselves. Carlos Anjos, president of the Judicial Police Inspectors Union, said: "All sense has been completely lost."

Another police source said the picture was based on information "without any consistency", which shows a man who could be one of "hundreds of people" and is "another diversionary manoeuvre".

Information from PDL residents regarding sighting of suspicious individual

Following up information already filed with respect to "The Ocean Club" and Mr Lance. P whose parents occupy apartment 7 of Block 2 (Garden), who spoke of having seen an individual several times in tha area and described his physical appearance.
He confirmed several times that the man was thin, brown skinned, about 35 years old, about 1,70m tall, with dark short hair. While not having seen the clothing clearly, the man was not a "ragamuffin". He last saw the man about two weeks ago.
In Praia da Luz, the man was always seen near the pharmacy in Rua Helena do Nascimento Baptista, but he saw him at least twice and, from memory, between 11h00 and 12h00 on the main access road into Praia da Luz which leads to Rua Direita.
The man was always seen to be alone, and the witness does not know if he was Portuguese or a foreigner. To him, the man's behaviour was always strange although he could not be specific as to why he felt that.
Trying to find the man officers walked the streets of the areas described by the witness, without success.
Mr. Lance P. drove to the DIC Portimao where he made a formal statement and helped create the "e-fit" no 19/2007, attached.
Inspector

Madeleine detectives 'hunting Portuguese drifter who is the spitting image of new kidnap suspect'

By VANESSA ALLEN

Last updated at 08:30 28 January 2008

A Portuguese drifter who strongly resembles Madeleine McCann's suspected kidnapper has been spotted at an Algarve resort.

Joaquim Agostinho was seen in Altura last week after two British tourists complained they had been followed by a prowler who looked "identical" to a sketch of the alleged kidnapper.

They said the prowler had also targeted children.

The sketch, drawn by an FBI-trained forensic artist, was commissioned by Kate and Gerry McCann.

MAIL-ORDER MADDIE 'WAS SNATCHED BY CRIME LORD'

Star 25-10-09


New claims involve Algerian crime lord

Madeleine McCann was a “mail-order child” snatched by an Algerian mafia boss, the British Daily Star Sunday newspaper reported on October 25.According to new claims, police are hunting for a North African crime lord who allegedly bragged to British associates that he had snatched Madeleine in a 100,000 sterling pound kidnap plot.  The Algerian, who went by the names of Younis and Tariq, is said to be known to the police in Portugal.  The suspect reportedly told his British associates that he had taken children from parts of Europe and sold them to rich families in Morocco.  He said that Madeleine had been taken away by a ferry. Meanwhile, the Civil Court of Lisbon ordered that all profits former police inspector Gonçalo Amaral made from his book about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann must be seized.The book, The Truth of the Lie, was an account of the former police detective’s beliefs that Madeleine was dead and questioned Kate and Gerry’s account. After initially working on the case, he was later removed after he criticised British authorities. The McCanns were successful in having the book banned from further publication and sales.

SHADY: In glasses, and man spotted near the scene


Both the men above were seen acting suspiciously in the area around the McCann apartment before the kidnap. The one on the right approached holidaymaker Iris Morgan asking for money to help 'young boys and girls'. The man in sunglasses was also seen nearby by an unnamed witness. These new images emerged from the case files after two other e-fits of suspects were released last week.

The McCanns’ new detectives, ex-police officers Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley, reveal that they have discovered 3 witnesses – ‘hidden’ in the PJ files – who saw a man acting suspiciously outside the McCanns’ apartment.
 
A sketch of one of the suspects is splashed across the covers of the UK press and immediately dubbed a variety of names, from ‘Scarface’ to ‘Pimpleman’ to ‘Mr Spotty’.

Belgian authorities are conducting DNA tests on a bottle and a straw after a possible sighting of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann last weekend.

A woman called police in the eastern town of Tongeren near the Dutch border on Saturday after seeing a couple with a small girl at a roadside cafe.
“She has considerable dealings with children and she was convinced the girl was Madeleine,” a prosecution spokeswoman said. “There is a bottle and straw that the girl probably drank from and we are testing them.”
The couple were described as a Dutch-speaking man of about 40 and a English-speaking woman of around 25. Tongeren legal authorities have drawn up photo-fit pictures of the pair.
The results of the DNA test should be known next week.
Madeleine went missing on a family holiday to Portugal on May 3, since when there have been dozens of possible sightings.

Witness Testimony Derek Flack 06/05/2007 Portimao
 
He Comes to the case as a witness following the events on the morning or early afternoon of 2nd or 3rd May (last Wednesday or Thursday) which might have a bearing on the present investigation.
--- As he does not write of speak Portuguese he is assisted by an interpreter, G.L.C. de Jesus, at the request of the PJ.
--- Relating to the events of the present investigation he states that he owns a holiday home on Rua do Ramalhete in Praia da Luz where he spends extended holiday periods in our country together with his long-time common-law partner of 36 years, C.M.Dale.
--- They both arrived in our country on the early morning of 29 April 2007 having stayed at the above residence.
--- Subsequently, on the late morning or early afternoon of either 2nd or 3rd May, not being certain which, the deponent and his partner were out walking in the vicinity of their home.
--- Asked, he does not recall the exact route taken but they went up from their home to Rua Dr. Agostinho da Silva then down Rua Dr. Francsico Gentil Martins where the "Ocean Club Gardens" is situated.
--- At that time as they passed the residential block he noticed a light commercial vehicle, (in all respects the same as an Opel Corsa Van), white in colour but dirty, with only one side window in the 'hanging' [sliding panel?] door, but not knowing the exact make, model or other identifying characteristics - including the number plate.
--- Everything considered he judged it to be an old model.
--- When going down the [Rua Martins] he passed an individual standing on his left at the beginning of a path and at the entrance of a small car park opposite the reception of the resort.
--- At the point they passed the individual the deponent had seen him face-on because he [the man] was facing the opposite direction to which he [the deponent] was walking, and appearing to be watching attentively movements [occurring] adjacent to the parked vehicle.
--- Asked, the deponent said that he noticed the above because he had a high instinct for vigilance [observation, watchfulness] due to his participation where he lived in England in a neighbourhood-watch in which suspicious persons or movements were watched for and detected to maintain order, unlike his partner who detected nothing of such incidents.
--- Hence, he was aware that the man's attention was fixed on the area in question [adjacent to the the van] in such a way that he [the man] was unaware of the deponent's presence.
--- Urged to describe the man, the deponent said he was Caucasian, dark-skinned, medium stature, 1,70 to 1,75m tall, about 25 to 35 years old.
--- Adding that the man had dark and thick hair but with no noticeable fringe [at the front].
--- Regarding [the man's] apparel he adds that he didn't observe this in detail, judging that [the man] wore a plain T-shirt, possibly yellow.
--- The deponent wished to clarify that he was convinced that the man was not one of the many tourists who frequented that area, considering his features and physical appearance.
--- Asked, [the deponent] said that, initially, he had associated the man with the van because [the man] had looked deliberately [intently?] at the area around it.
--- Notwithstanding [the above], having learned of the disappearance of MBM on 3 May from inside one of the resort residences mentioned above, he linked the two and that was the reason he came forward to the police.
--- Asked to justify [elaborate further] he said that the van was situated close to the gateway on the side of the building [which gateway] led to to the veranda of the apartment in question [apartment 5A].
--- Hence, one could conclude that the man was monitoring the movements next to that gate and, possibly, of the interior of the apartment.
--- For the rest, he adds that after having reflected specifically on the incidents he concluded that it was the man's deliberate focus [fixation] on the area in which the events that gave rise to the investigation occurred.
--- Urged to reveal details about the area around the van, the deponent could not be certain if the vehicle was directly next to, slightly above or slightly below, the gateway.
--- However, he was certain that it was a very short distance from, and directly in the path of the gate.
--- Asked, aside from what he reported above, he did not recall having seen the man before in that vicinity or any other place, nor caught the slightest glimpse of him since the crime that victimised the minor Madeleine.
--- The deponent is not sure if he would recognise him again in the event that they should meet.
--- Based on the above description image likeness [e-fit] #18/2007 is attached.
--- Finally, having been asked, he states that he intends to return to England next Saturday, 12 May 2007.

Police question British gardener over Madeleine's disappearance

British gardener has been questioned by police over Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

Detectives spoke to Dan Groom, 30, after an email tip-off claimed that he was spotted lurking in an alleyway near the family's holiday apartment on the day she vanished.

The anonymous message claimed that the British expat looked similar to a man seen carrying a child away from the apartment on May 3. Police questioned Mr Groom, of Horsham, West Sussex, on Thursday, but said he had not been made a suspect.

Mr Groom, who lives on the outskirts of Praia da Luz, said he had not been to the Ocean Club complex since March 30. He claimed he was the victim of a smear campaign and that he was innocent.

Police are checking his claims that the email may have been sent maliciously.

EEF HOOS (61) Year 2007


A Dutch criminal who cremates dead animals in a furnace behind his house told today how detectives had questioned him about the Madeleine McCann case. Eef Hoos, 61, who spent almost eight years in jail for planting bombs in the Netherlands, was repeatedly asked by police if he had met Maddy's parents. Hoos, who lives in a rundown but heavily fortified villa in remote mountains in the Algarve said officers had been taking photographs in his girlfriend's garden yesterday morning. He went to his local police HQ to confront officers about the photographs, only to find himself asked about the McCann case. Police inspected his incinerator and Hoos was ordered to attend the police HQ for more questions.

Maddie Police quiz convicted murderers as Kate McCann gives chilling account of moment she found daughter missing

Two convicted paedophiles have been questioned by British police over the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Charles O’Neill, 48, and William Lauchlan, 34, were jailed last year over sex attacks on children and the murder of a mother who had threatened to expose them.

The Mail on Sunday has learned they were interviewed in prison by detectives after inquiries revealed they were touring Spain, and possibly Portugal, on false passports when Madeleine vanished in May 2007.

Arguido: Mr Jones has been made a formal suspect - 'arguido' - and may be recalled to Portugal if police take the case futher

A British business executive has appeared in a Portuguese court after being accused of taking photos of children on a beach.

Parents had been alarmed when they saw 48-year-old grandfather Rhys Jones - who works for international clothing retailer Peacocks - arrive at an Algarve holiday resort alone and start taking pictures of boys in their swimwear.

When the parents complained, a row developed, police were called, and father-of-two Mr Jones was arrested.

The beach is 50 miles from where Madeleine McCann disappeared from her parents’ apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.
It is understood that 80 pictures of boys aged eight to 15 were found on the camera.

But Mr Jones has told the Daily Mail that while he had been ‘absolutely stupid’, he had an innocent excuse - he was impressed by the youngsters’ swimwear, wanted his firm to copy it, and was taking photos as research.

The businessman, who was holidaying in a hotel in Vilamoura with his wife Ann and his 14-year-old son, spoke before appearing in an Algarve court on Friday afternoon.

The keen amateur sportsman, who runs an under-14s football team and is chairman of the Welsh Club Cricket Conference, has worked for Peacocks for 30 years and is international operations and development controller.

Last Thursday he was on the beach at Vilamoura when he said he realised young male holidaymakers were wearing swimwear unlike that stocked by Peacocks.

On the spur of the moment, he said, he began photographing boys playing in the sand, with the aim of showing them to colleagues to suggest they stocked similar trunks, particularly for sales in Peacocks stores in Cyprus and Malta.

Police were called after parents objected. Mr Jones said: ‘I was absolutely stupid. When parents approached me I realised what an idiot I’d been. ‘I can fully understand the parents’ reaction.I’ve been bloody stupid. My wife keeps telling me I’m an idiot – she’s right, I was.

‘But I didn’t try to sneak any pictures, I did it all openly.’ Mr Jones said he is worried about his job at Peacocks, which is based close to his home in Cardiff.

Portuguese police commander Marques Ferreira said: ‘A 48-yearold Englishman was seen photographing children on the beach at Marinotel in Vilamoura and was arrested by the Maritime Police.

‘We were able to verify the existence of many photographs of children aged between eight and 15.’

A police source said witnesses said, ‘The man pointed his camera several times at children who were playing in the sand by the water’.

Mr Jones has been named an ‘arguido’, or formal suspect, and appeared in a court on Friday with a local lawyer to answer initial questions, but is understood to have been allowed to return home with his wife and son at the weekend.

He will be recalled to Portugal if the court decides to take the case further.

Taking photographs of children without their parents’ permission is a crime in Portugal.

Mr Jones was on Saturday due to play cricket in his position as captain of the Lisvane Second XI in Cardiff and is due to go on a cricket tour of Berkshire today.

One of his friends said last night: ‘He has been one of the stalwarts of the cricket club for many years, joining as a teenager just after its foundation in the late 70s.

‘I can’t believe he has ended up in a Portuguese court. He’s a straightforward guy with a great sense of humour.’

I wish I'd snatched Maddie

A shamed civil servant who has admitted a string of child sex offences boasted that he wished he had snatched missing child Madeleine McCann.

Self-confessed “paedo” and child porn addict Barry Shaw told cops he wanted to murder, torture and rape babies.

South Belfast man Shaw, 30, also admitted during police interviews that he had made sickening sexual comments about missing child Madeleine, who vanished from her holiday apartment in Portugal in May 2007.

Details about the accountant's perverted fantasises emerged during a bail hearing at Belfast Magistrates' Court last week.

Franz Norman Volker:

Maddie: Outlaw from Portuguese prison may be the abductor who the witness confused with Gerry McCann,

Intelligent fugitive

"The Portuguese police, via Interpol, keep active in their pursuit of the recapture of Franz," concluded the same source believing that the national authorities "are doing everything possible to find and arrest the fugitive," whilst acknowledging that it was, "not an easy job given the intelligence of Franz to outwit his pursuers".
