Put yourself inside the mind of a detective and work it out for yourself

PeterMac on location with US Criminal Profiler Pat Brown in Praia da Luz

The "smashed, broken, jemmied shutters", . . . the shutters found "raised" by Kate , as confirmed by Gerry. . . but observed by no one else. At all.

PeterMac's FREE e-book::  The Complete Works For_ma10

Was Madeleine Beth McCann really abducted as her parents would have us believe? Or did something more sinister happen to her?

This e-book has been expertly written from the perspective of a retired Police Superintendent detective who served for twenty eight years with Nottinghamshire Police (1972-2000) variously in uniform, CID, training, and latterly as the Operations Commander of a large Division overseeing enquiries and investigations of all types.  Peter has no insider knowledge of this case but has merely used the material that was released to the public on DVD in August 2008 by the Polícia Judiciária when the investigation was shelved...leaving no stone unturned !

This material includes:

   The detailed analysis of the legal situation by the Public Prosecutors and the several law courts in Portugal;

    P.C. Martin Grime's record of service and apparent infallibility of his sniffer dogs, Eddie and Keela;

    And some detailed analysis of weather - which may have been overlooked by both investigation teams because the immense significance of the 'Last Photo' may not have been fully appreciated until the analysis of 'no one having seen Madeleine after Sunday April 29th'.

All chapters researched and written by PeterMac, then proofread, edited, published by me.


Chapter 1: Changes in Story

Changing the initial version of events is a classic 'red flag' warning to police investigators

Chapter 2: Did they Search?

Did the McCanns physically search for their daughter Madeleine?

Chapter 3: Curtains, Door and Windows

We examine Kate's claim that the door slammed, and when she went in the curtains 'Whooshed' open.

Chapter 4: The “Window of Opportunity”

We calculate the vanishingly small 'window of opportunity' for the alleged abduction.

Chapter 5: Sedation

In this study we attempt to answer three questions
1 Were the twins sedated on the night of 3rd May 2007?
2 If so, were they sedated by an intruder ?
3 If so, but not by an intruder, then by whom ?

Chapter 6: Cold and Windy

Was the weather hot, as Gerry insisted, or cold and windy, as the others do, and what are the implications of this apparently trivial remark.

Chapter 7: Just Checking

We take another critical look at the inconsistencies in the Tapas group's statements about their checking of the children during dinner.

Chapter 8: Egregious examples

The most egregious examples of 'economy with the truth'.

Chapter 9: On the reliability of Cadaver Dogs

Some of the leading recent cases involving Cadaver dogs are examined.

The final two chapters are included to show the way in which people are capable of acting out a role, despite the pressures on them and despite their being in possession of the truth. They are relevant only to show sceptics that this can, and does, happen perhaps more often than people remember.

Chapter 10: Appeals and Pleas

Cases in which persons were reported missing or abducted, when in fact they had been harmed by a family member who made the false report.

Chapter 11: Crocodile Tears

Overlaps with the previous Chapter, but gives more examples of Television appearances.


Chapter 12: The Pool Photo - Floppy sun hats and flapping curtains ?

This chapter emerged from the more formal Last Photo, Pool Photo work, when we started looking at weather charts, wind surfing competitions at Portimao, personal diaries of ex-pats, and the descriptions of temperature and weather in the Tapas group's statements and Rogatories.

It was soon realised that regardless of anything else, the wind and weather are capable of proving - on the balance of probabilities at the very least - that the Last Pool photo cannot have been taken at lunchtime on 3/5/7 and that the curtains cannot have 'whooshed' at 10 pm on 3/5/7.

Both are independent of any other considerations, and the Chapter can stand alone for this reason.

Chapter 13: The McCann family, and the Dossier of Death

A ’Dossier’ was prepared, allegedly, of ‘tweets’, Facebook messages, and blog entries, sent to people unconnected with the McCanns. The 'Dossier' was handed in to the police.
Brenda Leyland paid the price. She paid with her life.

Chapter 14: The Last Photo = The Pool Photo

This is a heavily edited version of a paper which originally ran to 9 pages, with 24 pages of references, and four Appendices. Much of this appeared on CMoMM a long time ago. This analysis can be read independently of the 'Floppy Sun Hats and Flapping curtains' chapter, but overlaps with it.

Examination of this photo advanced in three main stages

First was to look at the photo and the statements surrounding it, and to examine who took it, and on which camera, and to ask why it was never, at any stage, released to the PJ.

This quickly led to the realisation that the photo itself was apparently sound. There was a robust argument about whether it had been photoshopped, but the strength of expert evidence is against this.

This in turn led to an examination of other aspects of it, the obvious weather, and the apparent wind speed being amongst these.

That led to yet another question. If the Last Photo was not taken at lunchtime on Thursday 3rd May, then when was it taken? Very quickly the only possible day presented itself, and this conclusion has defied serious destructive analysis.

That is dealt with in the Chapter (Floppy Sun hats and Flapping curtains)

From there the sequence of events, the identity of the person involved in the alteration of the Metadata, of the person who transported the finished image to PdL, and the person who then put this mendacious image into the public domain can easily be identified.

They are of course Capt. Louis Renault’s ‘Usual Suspects.’

But here, IF what we suspect turns out to be correct, then all four might be Guilty of Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice.
Of course if we are wrong, then they are not ! Only they know - know - the truth.

Chapter 15: Almost the last word on the Last Photo !

In the Chapter Floppy sun hats and flapping curtains I showed how the Last Photo, the Pool Photo could not have been taken at lunchtime on 3rd May.

In the Chapter The Last Photo I showed how it was clearly possible for four clearly identifiable people, acting in concert, to take the image, alter the EXIF Metadata, take it back to PdL, and hand it to the person responsible for putting it into the public domain.

Both Chapters concentrated on proving what the photo was NOT.

Here I return to the theme, and try to establish what the photo actually IS.

In other words, when was it taken ?

Chapter 16: Why did they do this ? Seven worrying problems

Any child could have told them they would be found out.

Chapter 17: Some Philosophical thoughts in which we examine Logic and the absence of evidence

Once we have covered the logic and philosophy we can begin to apply it to the case in question.

Chapter 18: Say So, or Say No

The PAID....say SO
Not paid....say NO

Chapter 19: McCanns Embedded Confessions

Richard D. Hall interviews statement analyst, Peter Hyatt, in the USA

Chapter 20: Spot the water slide !

A challenge for those who believe the abduction myth and those who put out stories supporting that nonsense.

Chapter 21: Is the Tennis Balls photo the NEW LAST PHOTO?

Close friend, confidante, and uncritical McCann supporter, journalist Tracey Kim Kandohla seems to suggest this may be about to happen.
In a Mail Online article recently, à propos the McCanns’ blog site, she said:

“Pictures include the iconic last known image of Maddie in pink sunhat and clutching tennis balls while on holiday “

Chapter 22: Tennis Balls Photo

My interest in this particular image was rekindled after the recent newspaper article by Tracey Kandohla, a vehement and uncritical McCann supporter and personal friend of Kate, who referred to the Tennis Balls Photo (TBP) where she says:

“Pictures include the iconic last known image of Maddie in pink sunhat and clutching tennis balls while on holiday “   Having researched it further, some are now tending towards the conclusion that it could indeed be the ‘last photo’ of Madeleine Beth McCann, taken some hours after the Pool photo.

Chapter 23: "Faking it - Tears of a Crime"

This chapter examines the cases of Shannon Matthews and Tia Sharpe and the parallels in the public behaviour of the people responsible for the events.

Chapter 24: Unhelpful relatives

Here I have tried to pinpoint things said by relatives and friends, who perhaps thought they were being supportive and helpful, but which, and who, turned out not to be.

Chapter 25: How much of this is fraud, and how much totally innocent?

In the accounts for 2008 the figure for setting up the website is given as £ 37,071 (Thirty seven THOUSAND)

Chapter 26 : What do I think happened to Madeleine ?

I am now prepared to rise to the challenge, and to present my “purported’ theory.

Chapter 27: Can any of this really be true?

Shortly after reporting Madeleine missing, the McCanns selected - VERY CAREFULLY and very quickly...

Chapter 28: The Pool Photo refuses to go away

The Pool Photo is of crucial importance. Of that there can be little doubt.

Appendix to Chapter 28: Two Photos which tell an important story

Balance of probabilities ? or are we yet at  Beyond a reasonable doubt ?

Chapter 29: Fake News

Why do we not like a Lie, teach a child to forgo a Fib, punish Perjury, but suck up Spin, and just shrug our shoulders and give up on Fake News ?

Chapter 30: Forget the Facts - Focus on the Fallacies

In Chapter 17 we started to consider some of the philosophical issues concerned with this case. We looked at whether absence of evidence could become evidence of absence (it can!) and we touched on Logic and fallacious argument.

What I want to do now is look at it purely from the point of view of Formal Logic...

Chapter 31: Jon Clarke – Olive Press LIES and VIDEOTAPE

Only Clarke can tell us for which of the untruths he and “The Olive Press” - and, by association, Netflix – prefer to be remembered.


Here I try to trace the origin of one of the more persistent Conspiracy Theories.

Chapter 33: Jon Clarke Entrenched Lies

To coin a neologism – “if you find yourself in a trench, stop digging”

Chapter 34: Decline and Fall of Modern Journalism

One small slip for a man; one giant fall for a profession.

Chapter 35: Mirage

A Diversion on Observation, and the influence of our previous Knowledge and Belief

In it I shall examine how we can think or believe we see something, when in fact the objective and scientifically provable truth of the matter is that we either did not, or that we saw something else.


Chapter 37. A short recap

A brief restatement of some of what we know.

An easy entry point for people new to the research and analysis.

And above all a reminder to us all of why we are still here after 13 years.

Chapter 38: Lies – Damned Lies – And Jon Clarke

Yet another of Clarke’s “versions of the truth” has been exposed.

Chapter 39: Beyond a Reasonable Waterslide. Beyond the Pale

One day, one, just one, person will be driven by a higher sense either of common decency or of overwhelming guilt at what they have done to purge their conscience and to tell the truth.

Chapter 267: The Crown - v - McHaggis and McHaggis

It is the year 2037, and the case has now entered its fourth year.

Chapter 40: The Anatomy of a Revelation

Revelation; n. A surprising and previously unknown fact that has been disclosed to others. [Oxford Lexico]

Chapter 41: Who is the Fat Controller?

One of the issues which lurks in the background of this saga and bothers researchers is the question of who is organising and coordinating the “Official Story’...

Chapter 42: My First Impressions of Jon Clarke's 2021 book: 'My Search for Madeleine'

First Impressions

Chapter 43: My Search for Madeleine – Jon Clarke. The framing of Robert Murat

What follows is from Jon Clarke’s new book, much of it in his own words.

Chapter 44. “My search for Madeleine’. Jon Clarke - 2021: “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

More story changes, more errors, more nonsense, more mistakes, but most importantly

Chapter 45: 'My Search for Madeleine' - Jon Clarke. Mopping up the mess

Some unconsidered trifles, the usual lies, stupid mistakes, falsehoods and total nonsense.

Chapter 46. “My Search for Madeleine” - Jon Clarke, 2021 Jon Clarke Through the Looking Glass

“Why sometimes I believe six impossible things before breakfast”.

Chapter 47: Stop Press! Public apology and Summary of previous Chapters and even more anomalies

STOP PRESS. Jon Clarke may have told the truth. A public apology

YET ANOTHER VERSION of Clarke’s arrival in Praia da Luz has just emerged.

Chapter 48 - Part One: ‘My Search for Madeleine” Jon Clarke 2021 The final Version of the Truth - or Not ?

Just when we hoped Jon Clarke had finally run out of invented stories - along comes ANOTHER ONE


This is possibly the most important, and potentially the most explosive, Chapter so far.

Chapter 49 - My Search for the Madeleine Call: One Researcher’s 14-year Hunt to Solve Europe’s most Elusive Phone Call

First a brief re-cap.

In September 2021 Jon Clarke, owner and editor of a small free ad-sheet and newspaper available at supermarket check-outs in parts of southern Spain released a book entitled
“My Search for Madeleine: One Reporter's 14-Year Hunt to Solve Europe's Most Harrowing Crime”

Chapter 50: February 2022 A quiet Month for Madeleine watchers ?

As we have already noted, the Red Top gutter Tabloids were strangely quiet for the whole of February.

Possible reasons might include a ‘revelation’ that they had been wrong all along (unlikely); an executive decision to print no more rubbish without concrete evidence of the facts (equally unlikely); nervousness at the possible result of the law suit taken by Christian Brückner against SAT 1 and a named presenter/journalist Jutta Rabe (unlikely, but possible); lack of content generated by the Olive Press or similar fantasy machines (more probable)

Chapter 51: Some random unrelated thoughts

In a week when even the BBC has apologised and paid out a lot of your, the licence payers’ money for the disgraceful conduct and a series of blatant lies and libels by one of their top ‘journalists’ to get a sensational and “exclusive” story, and then covering it up at the highest levels in management for over a quarter of a century, I browsed through other organs of disinformation and junk ‘exclusive’ stories. In some cases “Exclusive” apparently means ‘appearing in no more than five other papers’, (rather like the definition of “top secret” meaning “tell no more than twelve”)

I focussed on some of the nonsense, including lies and libels published over the past 14 years, which continue to be covered up, denied, or simply ignored.

Chapter 52:    August was also a quiet month (?)

For those who keep their eye on the “” site it certainly seemed that August was ‘All quiet on the Madeleine front’ the only entries being the ludicrous stories about Rebecca Vardy’s having (allegedly) received threats and denigratory comments on her social media, including the insane one that she was in some way linked to the case of Madeleine McCann, and even (allegedly) accusing her of having been the one who ’snatched’ her.

Chapter 53 Another Round up of unconnected trifles
As we continue the analysis of the evidence, we are inevitably drawn back to Kate’s book, written either by herself alone, with assistance of a ghost writer, or wholly by a ghost writer.

Chapter 54: First. A Response and an Apology: And then a review of the (lack of) recent developments
Jon Clarke: “Yet it’s not me Plod ! One day you will be made to eat your words and suffer for your continual libels!”

New today!
Chapter 2024: Pontifications
As the case enters its 17th year we asked the principle prolific pontificators for their predictions and pipe-dreams for what 2024 might bring...
