Chapter 11 - The six fundamental questions: Where, when, how, who, what and why


The six fundamental questions that an investigator should be able to answer when he reaches the end of a process, remained in the air, in the case of Aldeia da Luz. The two first ones were answered, although 'when' still pointed to an excessively wide time lapse, between 6.30 p.m., which was the time at which the McCanns had returned to the apartment and the child had been seen in public for the last time, and 10 p.m., the time at which Madeleine's mother cried out the alert.

The 'how' could have been answered if the versions that had been given by the people who had intervened, matched minimally, which was not the case. The statements left wide open doors. Plus, the 'how' question can't be separated from the 'who', which widely explains what happened, and how it happened.

If it were true that a child had been taken out of her bed by a stranger, wouldn't it be normal to hear her cry out? Except if she were in such a deep sleep, that she wasn't able to notice that she was being carried away in the arms of a stranger.

The 'what' and the 'why' also have to be established together. When the specifics of an abduction, namely by a paedophile, are being looked at, its motivation is explained from the beginning: sexual, financial, or both. When a child goes missing without a trace, it's probably licit to associate the parents to such a possibility.

It was the parents themselves who expressed their will to participate in all the investigations that were performed to clarify this disappearance. When that same investigation confronted them with the inconsistencies of the reports that had been presented, why did they find that strange, and rebelled against it?

All the hypotheses must be placed on the table, and they can only be excluded when they have been exhausted. The involvement of the parents in the disappearance was a possibility that still had a lot to explore, while the abduction theory always lead to nowhere and seemed to hit a series of dead ends. The true drama of the McCanns and their 'entourage' was that the investigation seemed to be going into a direction that was opposed to the one that they defended. This might as well be done in the best of intentions, but they should have allowed for all the lines of investigation to follow their own course.

They may not always have been well advised about what to do or what to say. They hired many advisors, but failed to realise the most important feature of the Portuguese people: that they unite for only a few causes, but when they do, they can give away the shirt that they are wearing.

These remains of a latin tradition, of extremes, of all or nothing, collided with a risk and information management machine that was built from London.

Through the eyes of those who avidly consumed every little piece of information about the case, the McCanns were transformed from parents who made a bad judgement about their children's safety, into guilty persons in the disappearance of their daughter, and into false people, in the image that they wanted to give to the public.

It was the same media machine that they summoned up to support their cause and to spread the word, that turned against them and 'expelled' them from Portugal. If nobody had known about the judicial status that they were given in early September 2007, they probably would not have left our country.

Madeleine's parents never concealed that they wanted the media on their side. They never conceived another possibility for the work of the Portuguese investigators apart from the one that they defended: that while they were dining, having left their children in what they considered to be a safe environment, an abductor had entered the bedroom and had kidnapped their daughter, taking her into Spain or Morocco. Why not into some region inside Portugal?

After all, the probabilities that a Portuguese citizen had been the abductor were a lot greater than any other nationality. There are ten million Portuguese and only a few hundred thousand foreigners in the country. João Tavares tries to keep a schematic reasoning in these cases.

Since he became a policeman, João Tavares has used a mental scheme of analysis. But in this case, the scheme is more confused than ever before. Not because he lacks elements, but rather because there is an excess of them. An excess of information can paradoxally render itself useless.

Although the clues point to a certain sequence of events, João Tavares is unable to dismiss any of the hypotheses, after all these months. The only possibility that he admits to set aside is that of the child leaving the apartment on her own.

Keep it simple, he tells himself over and over again. But he was not allowed to, and the result was a huge mess, of planetary dimensions.

Every year, children disappear in Portugal, in the United Kingdom, in Spain, in France, all over the world. The explanations, no matter how gruesome, are usually simple. Paedophile predators, persons with sexual disturbances. Abductions for ransom, abductions for human slavery, for illegal adoption. Or children that, according to statistics, were subject to violence or to an incident within the family.

Those are 'simple explanations' exactly because they derive from the most basic, and monstrous, core of feelings that the human being is capable of. Self-preservation at any cost; egoism; the need for absolute power; avarice; despise for others; hedonism. João Tavares has always believed that the human being, no matter how educated and how instructed, no matter how polished in its image and in its manners, is capable of literally anything.

João Tavares reflected upon the fact that after so many centuries, the human race seemed to have evolved so little.

- We're capable of anything to preserve ourselves, or to prevent us from losing the power that we have conquered in the meantime.

He couldn't help the regret that he felt over the fact that this case had been rendered a lot more complicated because at its beginning, realities were assumed that should never have been.
