Have information?

If anyone has information about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, please visit www.findmadeleine.com

If anyone has any information about a criminal investigation shouldn't they contact the police, rather than a website set-up by the prime suspects in that criminal investigation?

Just asking ....

There could be an explanation why, and if it is true Christian Brueckner was in the vicinity of the Ocean Club on May 3rd.

He was, by trade a prolific burglar, perhaps he was out and about doing what he does best.

He would know the routine of the holidaymakers, what time they generally went out to dinner and returned for instance.

He wouldn't know when they were going home, as this wouldn't be a priority.

It's no great mystery why he would be in the area of the Ocean Club, 1 because he lived in the vicinity 2 because rich pickings were to be had there.

I suspect his plans for that nights work were disturbed and perhaps if they did interview him, he could throw some light on the comings and goings of the McCann and tapas fiasco.

The fact is, he could have been in the vicinity of the Ocean Club for any number of reasons.
Let us not forget there were plenty of Paedophiles in Praia da Luz at the same time as Brueckner and many of them were interviewed, as was Brueckner but not as a suspect paedophile.
Mr. Amaral said he was not registered as a paedophile, but as a thief.
 He had told a judge in Portugal he had committed offences against children in Germany but for some reason it wasn't acted on.
I think it's a case of right person, ie easy target, at the right place, at the right time.

This Brueckner affair is a repetition of the Raymond Hewlett affair that attracted so much attention for so many months a few years back.  The parallels are too striking to be coincidental.  

Both lived an errant lifestyle, both lived in clapped out camper vans,  both lived in the vicinity of Praia da Luz at the same time as Madeleine McCann's disappearance, both tinkered with old cars, both boasted to anonymous (or paid) witnesses that they knew a lot about Madeleine McCann's dispperance, both managed to keep off the police radar, both had German connections, both have previous for child sex abuse - allegations.

Only difference now, Hewlett is dead and Brueckner is behind bars.

Having said that, there is no proof that Brueckner was in the vicinity of the Ocean Club at the time of the McCanns family holiday, the German wafflers can't even come up with any proof.

Look above and beyond the facade.  This is just another set-up to distract from the facts of the case, those who roam free but with a permanent cloud of suspicion hanging over them.

Now who were they err .. err .. err .. ah yes, now I remember..

It will all go away soon, until the next "patsy" comes along.
So unprofessional of the German prosecutor to be mouthing off to the press and making unsubstantiated statements saying he has concrete proof that Madeleine is dead.

Still waiting to fall off my chair.

Makes you wonder why the German prosecutor is selling his soul to the devil - does it not?  Maybe some generous multi-millionaire has crossed his palm with silver.

As an aside, the intelligent tabloid - the Mirror is telling tales of a Manfred Seyferth contact who bragged about making a lot of money by fingering Brueckner (not literally you understand), this is from a news report back in the Hewlett day..


Hewlett was in hospital in Germany. Approached by the McCanns' private detectives, he demanded "thousands of pounds" in payment for interviews.


Follow the money?

The behavior of the German prosecutor has been bizarre, to say the least.

Even the McCanns' (former?) lawyer Rogério Alves said in an interview with Sandra Felgueiras in June last year that the German prosecutor's statements were like an electrocardiogram - sometimes he says one thing; days later, he says another...

I don't know how criminal investigations are conducted in Germany, but do German criminal prosecutors really give these many interviews about ongoing investigations, especially when they can't comment on the investigation itself? I doubt it...

On the other hand, if the German authorities really have enough evidence to claim that Christian Brueckner killed Madeleine McCann, why don't they go forward and charge him? They can't, because whatever happened, happened in Portugal. So why do we keep listening to the German prosecutor?

Why are the Portuguese authorities completely silent?

They have enough circumstantial evidence to maintain an investigation. There is no time limit for this phase in Germany.

As they still have not interviewed CB, even after he was moved to Wolfenbüttel JVA in December, where he would be closer to the Investigation Headqaurters I am beginning to doubt they ever will.

I have put my Stool away!

The pumping of ever increasing Press pressure from new Documentaries from the Danes and Americans (Disovery+ and CBS) leads me to believe the whole process is going nowhere. They can charge him for crimes committed abroad, because he is German. They just cannot do it until the BKA convince the Prosecutor that they have enough evidence to get a conviction rather than an acquittal.

They are just leaving it all so long to waste as much time as possible.

Either because of the ECHR or the Statute of Limitations in Portugal.

I have pondered this long and hard myself and it is nothing short of bizarre not to mention unprofessional in the extreme. There is definitely a hidden agenda here for this man to not even be questioned in spite of the world being informed that the German prosecution was in the possession of concrete evidence' of some sort or another linking CB to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. I don't know about anyone else but in my book, the term concrete in affiliation with evidence usually infers pretty compelling stuff does it not? But they refuse to offer any kind of disclosure about what it might be. This is not normal. 

All that bunkum about not being able to say anything in case it jeopardises I don't know what, is a load of old baloney too. It's just a great big teaser story with an ulterior motive. Why put such a sensationalist headline-grabber out there and then refuse to deliver the goods? How inept does that make them look? I can only assume a cat and mouse game is afoot and the real motive being to turn things on its head and by doing so, draw attention to and ridicule the farcical British coverup in the process. 

I think subliminal psychological mockery mind games directed at us are going on here. (I might still be having a mad half hour) BUT


IE: We've (The Germans) got no shame and nothing to hide in making ourselves look utterly stupid by saying we've got a prime suspect with evidence stong enough to convict him and we're prepared to hold our hands up, nail our colours to the mast and commit to saying he's the culprit, but actually it's all a load of hot air but we weren't afraid to say so. 

Whereas you guys have identified a prime suspect(s) with heaps of evidence circumstantial or otherwise so what or whom are you trying to protect by ignoring it, covering it up, and continually peddling a fake abduction story?

That's the whole point of this whole affair isn't it. Everything but everything presented to divert attention from the prime suspects Gerry and Kate McCann - for it is they, has totally ignored the known facts and evidence.

Speaks for itself in my view. It's a long time since I've contemplated the notion that Christian Brueckner doesn't even exist, at least not in terms of a rampant child molester, come rapist, come master thief, come dope dealer. Something very suspicious going on here.

It's just window dressing ..... ever seen a stark naked mannequin in a shop window before they stick the up-market fashion dressing on it? It's not a pretty sight but the disguise works every time - well almost.!

Madeleine McCann disappearance: New details on German suspect emerge


'He moved from job to job. He moved from crime to crime,' one expert said

New details have emerged related to the German man suspected in the years-old disappearance of 3-year-old Madeleine McCann, including that he was known at the time to steal "from hotels and holiday apartments," according to a recent report.

A recently aired segment of CBS’s "48 Hours" digs into the 13-year-old case involving McCann, a British girl who was vacationing with her family in Portugal’s vacation hotspot of Praia da Luz in May 2007 when she vanished from her hotel room where she and siblings were sleeping.

The long-running investigation into who took McCann, who vanished shortly before her fourth birthday, has intrigued the U.K. – and much of the world – for years. Her parents said Madeleine went missing after they had left her and her twin siblings asleep in their holiday complex while they had dinner with friends at a nearby restaurant.

Police at the time said the suspect, described as white with short, blond hair and a slim build, was linked to a camper van seen in the Algarve in 2007 and was believed to be in the resort area in the days before and after May 3 that year.

In June 2020, British authorities announced that a German man had been identified as a suspect, with officials later identifying him as Christian Brueckner, or "Christian B." Brueckner is 43 and was in and around the Praia da Luz resort area on the Algarve coast at the time McCann disappeared on May 3, 2007.

MADELEINE MCCANN TIPS FLOOD IN AFTER NEW SUSPECT IDENTIFIED; PROBE INTO ANOTHER MISSING GIRL

Bruecker reportedly drunkenly told a friend that he had information about McCann, according to Saturday’s "48 Hours" segment, "The Puzzle, Solving the Madeleine McCann Case."

A tipster went to German authorities regarding Brueckner in 2017, and an investigation was commenced.

"Christian B. is a … criminal who committed a lot of financially motivated crimes like burglary or drug trafficking," said crime analyst Mark Hofmann during the segment. "But he also has a darker side."

"He moved from job to job. He moved from crime to crime," Hofmann added.

Brueckner sexually abused a child in 1994 in Germany before moving to Portugal before serving time in connection with the alleged crime, according to the report. After returning German to face his time, Brueckner moved back to Portugal.

UK POLICE FAILED TO IDENTIFY MADELEINE MCCANN SUSPECT IN 2012, PORTUGUESE LAW OFFICIAL SAYS: REPORT

"He lived in a house right about one mile from the crime scene," Hofmann said.

Hofmann said Brueckner was "known for burglary in hotel resorts."

He canceled his car’s registration in the days following McCann’s disappearance and moved back to German shortly thereafter, according to the report.

MADELEINE MCCANN SUSPECT SUFFERS BROKEN RIBS DURING GERMAN COURT INCIDENT

German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters confirmed during the segment that Brueckner’s cellphone data placed him in the area of the family’s vacation spot around the time McCann vanished – but investigators are still working to confirm the Brueckner was the person using his cell phone at the time.

"The phone number placed Christian to the Ocean Club, but we have to find out which person uses this phone at this time. Normally it was used by Christian B," Wolters told "48 Hours." "But we don't know which person used it on the 3rd of May in 2007."

Wolters told CBS investigators still needed to track down and speak with the person who contacted Brueckner’s cell phone on the night of McCann’s disappearance, stressing that it "might be the only person who could confirm that indeed, Christian B. was holding his cellphone … in his hand that night."

He added: "And this would be proof that not just his cellphone was at the crime scene, but that he was at the crime scene."

Wolters said investigators were able to link Brueckner to a Skype chat room for pedophiles in 2013, according to the report.

"We have strong evidence that Christian B. killed Maddie McCann," Wolters said during the interview.

He noted that investigators have still not recovered the little girl’s body, but added: "We're sure that Christian B. murdered Madeleine McCann because of the evidence we have."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Beware the Ides of March ....

MADDIE GUILT Madeleine McCann suspect Christian B’s lawyer admits the possibility paedo may be GUILTY of killing toddler
Exclusive

Nick Pisa - 1 Mar 2021,

THE lawyer representing Madeleine McCann prime suspect Christian B has admitted he has considered the possibility his client may be guilty.

Friedrich Fulscher has been representing the 44-year-old suspect since he was named by German authorities as the man they believed was responsible for Madeleine's kidnap and murder.

He has always insisted the convicted rapist and paedophile is innocent of any involvement but has now explained his stance in a new TV documentary on the case.

Speaking on Discovery + Prime Suspect: The Madeleine McCann Case, Mr Fulscher, also revealed how he meets his client three times a week in prison isolation as he is a convicted sex attacker.

Mr Fulscher said: "Of course it has crossed my mind, I always consider the fact that my client is guilty of a crime. Of course you think about that. The first training you learn as a defence lawyer is that you should always accept the possibility that your client is lying to you.

''That doesn't mean that I believe that to be the case here but you always have to consider the possibility.''

But Mr Fulscher added he believed the case would never come to court as there is no hard evidence and prosecutors in Germany are simply trying to pin as many sex crimes on Christian B as they can.

He has been linked to ten attacks or disappearances involving children and women across Europe since the late 1990s but has not been charged with anything.

Even even, now nine months after being identified as the prime suspect for Madeleine's disappearance, he has not faced trial.

He said: ''All sorts of new allegations have been raised against my client, for all sorts of crimes, sex crimes. It seems that they are intent on pinning all the missing persons cases in the last 15 years on him.''

Mr Fulscher added: ''Doubt is the one factor which can be decisive in a criminal case. If doubts remain after the hearing of all the evidence in court as to whether the defendant is guilty, the court must acquit.

''It's the maxim of 'in dubbio pro reo', when in doubt for the accused.''

Christian B is currently in Wolfenbuttel prison in solitary isolation as he is a sex offender.

Mr Fulscher said:''I have gotten to know Christian B as a very friendly and receptive person to liaise with.

"So far I can't say anything negative about him. I wish all my clients were like him.''

I keep hearing Christian B was convicted but he skippped the country .... ?

In 1995 he was convicted and left Germany for Praia da Luz on the Algarve.

According to Alexander Stevens (who features prominently in this documentary), legal expert - criminal law, in England and Germany it's not easy for a criminal to keep under the radar but not Portugal - the sardine munching wine swigging local yokels. The latter bit my words of course, not to be taken verbatim. Excuse my hignorance but if that be so, how did Christian B, after being convicted of a serious crime, manage to escape Germany and settle in Portugal?

duh

There is something about this Christian Brueckner story that has been bugging me right from the start - it just doesn't add up.

The Discovery + documentary and the subsequent CBS 48 Hours take has confounded matters even further.  The documentary is so friggin' boring and contradictory it's hard to concentrate on the detail.

Brueckner seems to have been wandering around committing heinous crimes across Europe but coincidentally focusing on Germany and Portugal, escaping justice, being condemned and doing a runner for a variety of crimes - petty, serious and very serious, sometimes on the radar but invariably under the radar. Now you see him now you don't?

If you're going to concoct a scenario to focus on a particular individual for a particular crime, for cripes sake make it real.  This story is so ridiculous it's risible.

Ribbit!

The reason may have been that the German State did not view Child molestation as a ‘serious crime’. But only a ‘misdemeanour crime’.
Therefore he would have been released after the Court case on Parole, even if he was Sentenced to time in Jail, he would have been given time to get his affairs in order before reporting to the JVA Prison to serve it.

Example:

[size=13]06/11/2020 - 3:35 p.m.[/size]


Bitter settlement of the German Children's Aid with the Minister of Justice!

After the horror news about the child molester network from Münster and about the high school teacher Holger P. (37), who was released on parole despite the abuse of his own son, politicians and associations have been calling for harsher sentences against child molesters for days. 

But so far Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (54, SPD) has strictly refused to reclassify the sexual abuse of children as a crime, but as a more severely punished crime. Reason: Courts could then "not react appropriately to criminal offenses with only a small amount of injustice".

As an example, her ministry told BILD “a French kiss between a 13 and 14-year-old”.
 
Now Rainer Becker, chairman of the German Children's Aid, his collar has burst. He asks: “How incompetent does the minister think our judges, whom she presides over, actually?” His bitter conclusion: The Justice Minister is “no longer sustainable”, means: He is demanding her resignation!

German Man Eyed As Most Credible Suspect In Madeleine McCann's 2007 Disappearance

“We have strong evidence that Christian B. killed Maddie McCann," German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said in a recent report.

By Dorian Geiger

The German man who has become the key suspect in the 2007 disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann in Portugal was known for robbing hotels and holiday apartments, according to new reports.

Christian Brückner, a convicted child sex offender, was identified by officials in 2020 as a suspect in the case of the missing girl, who vanished at 3-years-old while on vacation with her parents. Prosecutors, who consider him one of the most credible suspects behind McCann’s kidnapping, reiterated in February that they have compelling proof that Brückner murdered the child.

“We have strong evidence that Christian B. killed Maddie McCann," German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told CBS’ “48 Hours” in a recently aired segment.

German prosecutors recently confirmed that cell phone data put Brückner in the vicinity of McCann’s family’s resort room within the timeframe that she vanished. It’s unknown, however, if Brückner himself was using the phone in question.

"The phone number placed Christian to the Ocean Club, but we have to find out which person uses this phone at this time,” Wolters added. “Normally it was used by Christian B. But we don't know which person used it on the 3rd of May in 2007."

Brückner, while intoxicated, supposedly once confided in a friend he had information related to McCann’s disappearance, the CBS investigation revealed. He hasn’t yet been officially charged in McCann’s disappearance or death, and the McCanns haven't publicly spoken out about Brückner’s suspected involvement.

“In Germany, we…charge someone only if we are sure that he will be sentenced by the court,” Wolters said. “If there are doubts…we don't charge him.”

He expressed hope more witnesses will one-day come forward.

“We think that there are people who can help us and we hope that these people will contact us or the police,” Wolters said.

In 2013, Brückner was accused of using a chatroom for pedophiles on Skype, prosecutors said.

Officials previously referred to him as a "sexual predator.” The 43-year-old, who previously lived in Portugal, is allegedly linked to a number of other missing person cases. He also had a reputation for “burglary in hotel resorts,” and “holiday apartments” some experts familiar with the case said.

“He was known for burglary in hotel resorts and Maddie disappeared from around a hotel resort,” Mark Hofmann, a legal analyst, told CBS. “So, it's possible…that this crime maybe started as a hotel burglary and it ended as the potential kidnapping and/or killing of Maddie McCann."

One year before McCann went missing, Brückner was arrested on suspicion of theft in Portugal.

"He moved from job to job,” Hofmann added. “He moved from crime to crime.”

German police previously uncovered a secret cellar beneath Brückner’s home, according to The Guardian. Authorities allegedly seized a number of items, including a child’s toy bucket, from the man’s basement. The search, officials, confirmed, was linked to McCann’s disappearance.

McCann vanished on May 3, 2007, while her family was vacationing in southern Portugal. Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, were cleared as persons of interest in the case by Portugal authorities the following year, according to the New York Times.

"We will never give up hope of finding Madeleine alive but whatever the outcome may be, we need to know as we need to find peace," their website states.

There have been approximately 8,500 reported sightings of McCann throughout the years. Officials, however, now suspect she was killed “relatively quickly” following her abduction.

"We are assuming that the girl is dead,” Wolters previously said in June 2020, according to the BBC.

Brückner is currently serving time in a German prison on child sex crime charges. He has previously denied any involvement in the toddler’s disappearance.

"Mr. B is remaining silent on the allegation at this time on the advice of his defense counsel,” his lawyer Friedrich Fulscher also said last year. “This is quite common in criminal proceedings. It is the duty of the state to prove that a suspect committed a crime. No accused perso n has to prove his innocence to the investigating authorities.”

Off we go on yet another jolly!

Makes you wonder - rather it makes me wonder - if this latest 'suspect' in the form of someone named Christian Brueckner, is indeed to be the grande finale, the missing piece of the proverbial jigsaw.

The end .... well, so they think!

My pleasure ShininginLuz hat

This bit I found quite interesting..

2013
McCanns appeal to the German public on TV for evidence over Madeleine’s disappearance. Brückner’s name crops up in connection with the case.

In all probability the appeal was in conjunction with the UK's 2013 Crimewatch Madeleine McCann Special. If I remember rightly, it was said at the time a broadcast would simultaneously be aired in German and the Netherlands.

At the time, the Guardian reported thus..

Madeleine McCann appeal to air in Germany and Netherlands

Police hope to receive information about two German-speaking men they believe may have been involved in kidnapping

The German public broadcaster ZDF is to air an extra-long episode of its equivalent to BBC's Crimewatch focusing on Madeleine McCann's abduction more than six years ago, in the hope of receiving information about two German-speaking men who British police think may have been involved.

The show, Aktenzeichen XY … ungelöst (File Reference XY … unsolved), due to be broadcast on Wednesday, will include the 22-minute reconstruction of the day the then three-year-old went missing during a family holiday in Praia da Luz, southern Portugal, on 3 May 2007.

The programme will also broadcast the images of two men, thought to be German speakers, who were previously believed to be unimportant, but may in fact have been involved.

Madeleine was taken from the apartment where she was sleeping with her younger twin siblings, while her parents, Kate and Gerry, were dining in a tapas restaurant with friends 50 metres away.

"For six years we have not given up looking worldwide for our daughter," Madeleine's parents told the show's host Rudi Cerne, according to a ZDF statement. "We are happy that Aktienzeichen XY is giving us the opportunity to reach the German audience to tell them about the new investigation. Maybe they can help us still find Madeleine."

Following the reconstruction, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, who is leading the investigation with the Metropolitan police, will address German viewers on questions still open in the investigation and the McCanns will make a live appeal from Munich.

The German broadcast comes after the McCanns appealed for information on Crimewatch, from which police said they had received almost 1,000 responses. The appeal will also be shown on the Netherlands crime programme, Opsporing Verzocht.

In a statement released on Monday, the Metropolitan police said that, except for the Portuguese community, German and Dutch people were thought to be most prevalent nationalities in the area at the time of the abduction.
