Chapter 15 – The secrets of Praia da Luz

A secret is something that is hidden from someone specific, or from the world. It can be an action, a piece of knowledge, a feeling. It is not what is being hidden that defines a secret, but rather the action of keeping it, imposing a commitment on those who agreed to keep it, be it between two persons or a group of people.

The Police is an abstract entity that is formed by men and women that represent the idea of the institution. They all have their own secrets to keep, and they do keep them; not only professional secrets, but especially personal ones.

It was with men and women that the group of friends of the McCann family was confronted from that night onwards. They crossed paths with people who handle the “I didn’t do it”, “I wasn’t there at that time”, “I don’t know that person” every single day of their professional lives. Later on, most of the times, the story ends with “it was him”, “I was there” and “I know him”. These men and women deal with repetitive mental schemes. People lie, and policemen and –women are used to hearing lies without indignation or constraint. They know it’s part of the game.

The Policia Judiciaria was surrounded in this case like it had never been in its history of over 60 years. It had never been so confined in its movements, as there was no space left to even think about anything that diverted from the wave. There were no solid constraints, there was no written order to do this and not that. But there was an avalanche of information like Portugal or the world had never seen. And simultaneously, the “Madeleine product” was massified, placing the cherry on the top of the cake of this invisible corset.

The fact is that the police, while exploring the wrong path for months, allowed for the secret to gain strength, to grow and to become almost indestructible. If the confrontation of versions and inconsistencies had taken place only days after the fact, we would probably be looking at a very different outcome, today. And now, Praia da Luz keeps a terrible secret.

The most experienced policemen, those of older age and more experienced in life, commented softly among them that Madeleine had not been abducted. Not in the way that had been suggested to them. Their experience as policemen told them that child abductions are not murky cases like this one, with discrepancies that simply have no solution.

Mistakes are understandable under stress. The type of feelings that are experienced under such conditions, often originate mismatching reports, but they remain understandable. That was not what happened with the McCanns, with their friends, with the waiters at the restaurant, or with other witnesses. Absolutely nothing was matching.

This fact, if understood as an indication of guilt, can be understood as being the result of an accidental event. Nobody planned it. It simply happened, and they adapted to it. But the secret behind this, is still there.

At this point, the policemen cannot hide their secret anymore. They have formally indicted the McCanns of having, at least, participated in the concealment of their daughter’s body, and they have inferred from it that there has been a link between that concealment and the facts that originated the death that they suspect.

As they could not discern any reason for anyone that was close to the child to end her life intentionally, they opted for the possibility of a domestic accident, or a small aggression that might have ended tragically.

This was the sequence that originated the formalization of the status of suspects in the practice of a crime, on the parents of the child. The same policemen had defended, since the beginning, that the statements that the parents had made, concerning not only the missing child but also her siblings, proved that their behavior had been an infringement of the Portuguese Penal Code, and effectively constituted a crime of Exposure and Abandonment.

The secret that the policemen kept was that they suspected that the McCanns were telling them a lot less than what they knew. The entire development of the process ultimately confirmed that suspicion. They always kept talking to the couple, regularly and in an amicable manner, but the dangers of such communication is that it is impossible to keep information flowing only in one direction.

Some of the policemen, in an initial phase, understood the McCanns’ concern with the media as a manifestation of the famous British phlegm. They even conceived that those staged exits from the house, with an advisor who informed the journalists of the exact route and of the gestures that would take place, were done to keep their egos high. After all, these parents were at the center of world attention. What seemed more worrying was that they saw this fact as an absolutely natural thing. As if, every time that a child went missing somewhere in the world, the media from all other countries rushed to the door of the house where the child had been taken from. It had never happened in such a dimension, and it looked as if for the McCanns, it was just normal.
