Madeleine McCann's grandmother dies of coronavirus as police search intensifies

Eileen McCann, Madeleine's paternal grandma, died from coronavirus weeks before police publicly announced a new suspect in the little girl's 2007 Algarve disappearance

Madeleine McCann’s paternal grandma has tragically died causing more heartache for Kate and Gerry.
Eileen McCann, aged 80, passed away last month from a coronavirus-related death just weeks before German police broke bombshell news that they believe Maddie is dead.
They are now investigating a new prime suspect over her abduction and possible murder.
Widow Eileen - one of Maddie’s devoted grans and Gerry’s mum - said shortly after her granddaughter was snatched in 2007: "When I lost my husband John two years ago I thought that my world had collapsed. But losing Madeleine is ten times worse."
The former shop assistant and cleaner from Glasgow, spent many months in Portugal’s Praia da Luz supporting and comforting her devastated son, daughter-in-law Kate and their toddler twins Sean and Amelie after the kidnap.
She said at the time: "As long as they don’t find her body, I’ll never give up hope. When we do finally get her home she’ll have so much love and hugs from


Along with family members, Eileen was a stalwart for launching a global campaign to keep Maddie’s disappearance in the global spotlight and find her abductor.
Eileen’s wish, and that of Kate’s parents, retired joiner Brian and former teacher Susan Healy from Liverpool, was for them all to learn the fate of their adored grandchild before their own life’s end.
Heart doctor Gerry and ex GP turned medical worker Kate, both 52, of Rothley, Leicestershire, are understood to have attended Eileen’s small funeral amidst Covid-19 social distancing restrictions in St Coval’s, East Renfrewshire.
Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said tonight: "The family will definitely not be commenting on a private family matter."



Kate’s uncle Brian Kennedy, also from Rothley, said: "We do not wish to comment on private family matters."
A source close to the couple said: "It is yet another tragedy for the family and people who know them will be very sorry to hear."
Mum of five Eileen, who hails from Donegal, Ireland, was a driving force along with two of her three daughters Philomena and Tricia and son John in campaigning to find Madeleine.
She and family members were happy to conduct media interviews to help keep the youngster’s disappearance in the media headlines in a bid to track down her kidnapper.
She had previously told of her belief that her ‘hyperactive’ and inquisitive granddaughter was drugged to stop her screaming out before she was snatched.
She said: "There is no way they carried her out of there without her awakening. If she was taken when she was sleeping by somebody she did not know, she would have screamed the place down."




She said at the time: "As long as they don’t find her body, I’ll never give up hope. When we do finally get her home she’ll have so much love and hugs from us all."



She said at the time: "As long as they don’t find her body, I’ll never give up hope. When we do finally get her home she’ll have so much love and hugs from us all."





Three-year-old Maddie had been left sleeping alone with her younger twin siblings while her parents were dining in a nearby tapas restaurant with pals whilst taking it in turns to make half hourly checks on the kids.
Eileen was convinced Maddie’s abductor struck at his first opportunity after closely monitoring the family’s footsteps during their stay at a luxury poolside complex.
She said previously: "I really believe that whoever took her gave her a drug first to stop her screaming and raising the alarm.
"Without a doubt, I believe the person who carried Madeleine out of the room that night had sedated her first. She is not the type of child to go off with a stranger.

"She’s alway been chatty and hyperactive at times but she’s not one of these children who talks to anyone, she needs to get to know someone first."
Tough talking Eileen has always been a fierce critic of the doubters who have continually slammed her son and daughter-in-law for leaving their children alone and wrongly believing they were somehow responsible for their eldest child’s disappearance.
Kate and Gerry were made suspects - ‘arguidos'- in Maddie’s disappearance by the Policia Judiciaria in September 2007, four months after she had vanished but were later cleared on any suspicion of wrongdoing.

Eileen defended the couple not choosing to use the resort’s babysitting service, saying: "They don't like leaving the children with strangers.
"It wasn't something they did very often - they have a nanny at home whom they trust. They're normal parents who love their children and would never neglect them in any way. Any suggestion they were neglecting them is completely insulting."
In a heartwrenching interview when the McCann's made their painful return home to the UK without Maddie, Eileen told how Kate collapsed in tears in her daughter’s bedroom.
She said: "Kate needed to go into Madeleine’s room as soon as she got back. She wanted some time alone there. It was very traumatic for Kate. I can't imagine how sad she must have felt. Madeleine's clothes and toys were just the way they had been left.

"Kate believes Madeleine is still alive and I imagine said a little prayer for her."
She told how daughter Trish had called her saying: "Kate’s in Madeleine’s room. She’s really upset."
Eileen, who had been in Portugal with the family but had flown back to Scotland, had earlier witnessed Kate’s despair at the airport, saying: "She was really distressed and kept saying she didn't think she’d be going back without Madeleine.
"We kept hugging and kissing and I said to her ‘Be strong.’ She kept saying ‘But I'm going back without Madeleine’ and I told her: 'You have to think about the twins now."
Over the past 13 years Eileen has continued to be a tower of strength to her son and Kate and the family have frequently got together, more recently in Scotland.

German police, being assisted by Scotland Yard, say they are investigating convicted rapist Christian Brueckner over Maddie's kidnap and murder. 
German detectives are convinced she is dead and say they know how she was killed but have no idea where her body is.

Despite 600 new tips off - 400 to the Met Police and 200 to German Police - following a high profile appeal for information no charges have yet been brought against the 43-year-old German suspect.
He is currently in prison for raping an American pensioner and has now been moved to his own cell over fears for his safety.
Kate and Gerry welcome the significant breakthrough but say until a body is found they will "continue to hope" Maddie could still be alive.

Blah, blah, blah, blah....................
Oh dear never mind.

My dearly beloved Aunt who would have been 95 in December died at the beginning of April. I couldn't visit her in her care home when she was ill or go to her funeral because of the "lock down".  I don't remember Kate & Gerry McCann weeping and wailing over her death.  Neither do I recall them weeping and wailing over the deaths of thousands of people who have died in the past few months from the coronavirus.

Why the hell should we care about the McCanns and their family, they are no different from the rest of us.

Get your head out of their backside Kandohla, ffs.

It's sad that Eileen didn't get to see justice for her granddaughter, the little girl who she described shortly after she disappeared, thus: "That girl could throw a tantrum when she wanted to."

Not Madeleine, or Maddie, or my beloved little granddaughter - but, "That girl".

The whole family are sooo cold and distant.

I'm very sorry to hear that Eileen McCann has died.

Wherever you are whoever you are, the death of a loved one is a personal tragedy.  Any age, doesn't matter, it's still felt with intensity.

R.I.P.

The impression from the meetup's being more recently in Scotland makes me think Eileen had been unwell for a considerable period and is now at peace.

Quite so, we are all mortal beings. 

The coronavirus bit was no doubt added for effect - to keep it topical so to speak.

So they had "meet ups" more recently in Scotland, and you know that how?

Weren't we all suppose to be in "lock down" for the past few months??  Good grief, I wish you'd told me sooner, I could have been at the bedside of my dying Aunt and at her funeral but I didn't get the memo you got.

I think that we are meant to sympathise with the McCanns, But why? They weren't at all upset when Madeleine died, why would they be upset over Eileen?

It seems to me that the McCans are now selfishly exploiting the death of Eileen to get public sympathy for themselves. Once again, they are the victims, not Madeleine, not Eileen, but them. Its all about them.

I have to agree with Cookiemuncher here, she's spot on.

Anyway, RIP Eileen - you're at peace with Madeleine now roses

I agree but disgusting as it is, someone has died through natural causes - there must be innocent family members - like the twins, who don't deserve to be part of the McCann machine of exploitation and deceit.

The McCanns never do their own dirty work, there is always someone waiting in the wings to aid and abet.

Let it go!

RIP to Madeleine's grandmother. It is indeed sad when a loved one passes. I do think the timing of the release is a bit odd though. Seems like they had no plans to announce it, until this Christian B nonsense was made public. Then a quick scramble to release something sympathetic to the McCanns. Why would they feel like they need sympathy, I wonder?

I reckon this is the reason that the McCanns wanted money of Goncalo Amaral, not for the fund but for themselves and the twins. winkwink Trying to buy them off.

thinking Maybe they think that in their hour of darkness, the public would go easy on them and accept the patsy?

Sorry, but that doesn't work. We are sorry for your loss but this doesn't change what really happened to Madeleine. Justice must still be done.

Wasn't one of the terms of the "Fund" that the money could be used to help the "wider family".  Why the wider family should need to dip into the Find Madeleine Fund. God only knows.  It's not as if they were all on planes flying to and from wherever they thought Madeleine may be, searching through bushes and derelict buildings, when the only time they went to PdlL was to sit around the swimming pool while everyone else on the complex did the searching.
