Chapter 8 - Accused

Shortly after 2 p.m., Kate sits down on a chair in a room that has been specially prepared at the PJ's department in Portimao. João Tavares sits down in front of her. The strategy is to work in a crescendo: starting out calmly, working towards an emotional peak, hoping for the witness to explode and confess. For the umpteenth time, the events of that late afternoon are remembered, more precisely the time lapse between 6.30 and 8.30 p.m.

Madeleine's mother insists on the same usual reply.

- We arrived, I played with the children in the apartment's living room, I prepared them to go to bed and by 7.30 they were actually asleep. We dressed up and went to dinner with our friends...

- Actually - João Tavares says, in a calm and pondered tone -, we think that some domestic accident happened in that house, which was covered up for fear of the consequences of wrong interpretations by the police or by the people, about your life. You ended up staging this entire abduction situation. You wanted to maintain your reputation of perfect medical couple at all costs, didn't you?

- Then prove it - Kate throws in a dry manner.

- We detected blood traces in the living room, madam.

- That could have been from the day that my daughter bled from her nose.

- We found blood in your rented car...

- That could have come from a piece of the girl's clothing, that could have been dirty with her blood, and then transported in the car.

- It certainly could. Let's have a look at this video, then...

On the tv monitor, Eddie can be seen sniffing over Kate's clothing and marking that it had been in contact with a cadaver. The reactions of the dogs in the vehicle that had been used by Madeleine's parents can also be seen.

- At the medical center where I work, in England, before we came on holidays, people died whom I had been in contact with... you must be forgetting that I am a doctor...

- Yes you are - João Tavared replies - and the death rate at the medical center where you work twice a week is extremely high...

- It's true - the arguida replies.

- Did you ever give your children any medicine to make them sleep?

- No, never - she replies with indignation.

This was a rhetorical question, as it was known that Kate's father had stated that it was usual for them to give the children Calpol to sleep.

For hours, the questions followed one another, and Kate reached emotional peaks several times. A confession is proposed to her, with the explanation that the penal context is more favourable in such cases. This is done to ensure that an exit is offered to a person who is feeling trapped.

The entire situation is explained, so the potential criminal does not feel that there are still secrets in store that could compromise him or her.

Madeleine's mother is confronted with everything that there is, for eight hours. All the inconsistencies in the witness statements, the timings of the alleged checks on the apartments, the drinks that were consumed at dinner. She did not give in. She was even indignant about certain questions. She never broke or recognized any guilt, except for the one that she felt about leaving her children alone in the apartment while she went to dinner.

At this point João Tavares thinks she is either a great actress, or she is completely innocent.

Kate leaves the PJ department in Portimao as an arguida. Pinto de Abreu, who is well aware of the crucial role of the media, makes a statement about his cleints' status in the process: Kate and Gerry had been made arguidos, and the latter shows himself a lot less available to reply to any questions.

The investigators are well aware of what they say and of the choices that they were making, but destiny did not leave them any other options.

Until here, all the questions that had been asked from the McCanns could find an appropriate reply and a plausible explanation, which gave the couple complete innocence. Everything was circumstantial, and there was nothing definitive against them.

A few hours later, the Policia Judiciaria is informed that the McCanns will return to their home in England, to be reunited with the rest of their family. They know that by doing so, public opinion can only conclude, in their ingenuity, that they were escaping a possible detention, out of fear.
