Gerry McCann and the blue tennis bag

I heard some talk about Gerry McCann losing a blue bag, some said they definitely remember hearing this on the news while others said it was “forum gossip” and never existed. After searching the internet news and blogs for hours I came up with nothing and ended up concluding it’s probably “forum gossip.”

After finding nothing on the internet I forgot all about it, then the other day Ironside posted a link to a Youtube video from Sky's the report on Gerry’s missing bag.

So if the police were looking for a blue tennis bag then why did Mr Mitchell make a statement to deny its existence? And why was the internet scourged of any reference to it?

Ironside pointed out that Eddie alerted to cadaver at the corner of the McCann couple’s bedroom near the wardrobe ..... it's unlikely for a dead body to be laid openly beside or in the wardrobe but a bag containing a dead body placed there ready for removal isn't beyond the realms of possibility.

Transcript of Sky news video

@ 0:22
Martin Brunt: "And detectives have been searching for a blue tennis bag that went missing from the McCanns holiday apartment. The bag belonged to Gerry McCann, he’d been playing tennis in the hours before his daughter vanished."

Man (I don’t know who the official looking man is): "There’s a bag of, of a size that could be taking away from the flat a child that would be of great interest to the investigating officer."

Another curious statement made by Martin Brunt immediately after the above (@ 0:45)

"We’ve established that the apartment is owned by someone called McCann, Ruth McCann, a retired teacher from Liverpool. She and Madeleine’s parents insist they are not related. The name is just a remarkable coincidence but it’s enough to add one more conspiracy theory to the thousands that continue to circulate."

That’s one hell of a coincidence! What's the odds on a couple by the name of McCann to rent a holiday apartment in a foreign country from someone also called McCann and yet not know each other? I understand David Payne supposedly arranged the holiday and if so then maybe it is just one hell of a coincidence.

@ 1:06 Martin Brunt goes onto say: "Eight months on many who’ve followed the story still cannot understand why Gerry and Kate McCann left Madeleine and the younger twins alone in the apartment as they dined with friends at the nearby Tapas bar."

(Martin Brunt sitting at the Tapas Bar)

"I’m sitting at the table where the McCanns and their friends were eating on the night that Madeleine disappeared. This place is shut now for the winter. The apartment is some distance away, it’s beyond the swimming pool, there’s a wall and a hedge and behind that is a path. It would be very difficult from here to see anybody going in and out of the apartment."

(Martine Brunt walking from the Tapas bar to the apartment)

"Going to check on the kids wasn’t easy."

(standing at the gate at the foot of the steps leading up to the apartment)

"Well, 80 paces as far as the gate, the distance between the Tapas bar and the apartment, not quite as Gerry McCann described it."

After viewing this video it’s hard to see how the McCann couple believed it's okay to leave the children and check every 20 minutes when they couldn’t even see the apartment clearly from where they sat..... stories such as the tragic accidental death of two year old Lucy Marke (who was at a BBQ with her parents) outlines how dangerous it is for young ones to be out of sight even for only a few minutes.

Conclusion: Doubtful they were checking at all.

Vital holdall goes missingA TENNIS bag that could have been used to move Madeleine McCann's body has gone missing, it was claimed last night.

Dad Gerry was reportedly seen with the holdall as he took up to three tennis lessons a day on the ill-fated holiday that ended with Maddie, four, vanishing.

But the blue sports bag has been lost, according to a shock new TV special on the mystery that is gripping the world.

Police are desperate to trace it to discover if it was used to carry the little girl's body.

Sources say police believe Maddie died in an accident inside the McCanns' apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3.

It is also reported that officers accused her parents of disposing of her body to mask negligence and dodge a manslaughter rap. The McCanns, both 39, deny any involvement in the disappearance.

According to The Madeleine McCann Mystery - a Sky News special on tonight at 7.30 - the bag is vital to the investigation.

But the McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "Gerry's baffled. He's never owned such a bag. There simply is no missing bag. They are entirely innocent."

David Payne's rogatory interview - 11th April 2008

 1485 "What about a kit bag' Would they have a kit bag with them''

 Reply "Err he certainly didn't have a great big tennis bag or a, you know, err I mean I used to be a squash, a semi-professional squash player and you know they certainly didn't have anything that I would call a kit bag from days when I played''

1485 "Yeah.'

 Reply "You know, a lot of sport, err if they had a rucksack with some water in that would be, you know, about as big as it got, you know a small rucksack. But it certainly wasn't a big tennis, you know, things that you could put a tennis racquet in.'

1485 "Yeah.'

 Reply "There was nothing of that size that you could hide a, a tennis racquet in or anything like that, it would have been just purely, if they had anything''

1485 "Yeah.'

 Reply "It would have been something that had their water in.'

1485 "So as opposed to a bag it'd be something like a rucksack, if at all''

 Reply "If, if at all, yeah.'

1485 "Yeah.'

 Reply "Yeah.'

1485 "And is that the same for Kate''

 Reply "Yeah, yeah.'

It might not have been a tennis bag and it might not have been blue (lighting and camera image enhancer can change things like that.)

However there was a large bag in the wardrobe on the 4th May.

In the picture showing Gerry Mccann and Clarence Mitchell, Clarence is carrying a blue bag not dissimilar to the missing one that never existed hahaha. lmao.
I am sure Clarence has an innocent explanation as always!

Jokes aside, the bag is a critical piece of evidence and the information written by Sasha is really great detective work. If the Mccanns are innocent in having anything to do with their missing child, why would there be avoidance on being upfront about a missing bag. No wonder there are many who beleive they have guilty knowledge about Madeleine, as its just another coincidence like 101 others that seem to surround the case.
