From all the above points my conclusion is, there's no body left , nothing left to be found. MOO

I thought Luis Arriaga was considered a bit... unreliable?

There was talk again recently about the Barragem da Bravura. Personally I think that's as likely a spot as any. There was a cursory search done there but it was called off due to the arrival of the mysterious Amsterdam tip off, IIRC.

Of course the charade around Marcos Aragao Correia and the Arade dam probably introduces enough confusion into the mix to make casual observers think that the Algarve reservoirs have been extensively searched already.

Why you say that?! He used to be the spokesperson for "Projecto Justiça Gonçalo Amaral"  http://pjga.blogspot.pt/
But of course there's no way to prove he was the one posting those comments online.
ETA sorry for the off topic

No worries Ayniia - it was just something that I had in my head. I could be thinking of completely the wrong person - it wouldn't be the first time!

Well with or without his comment, Gerry saying: find the body and prove we killed her , is all I need to know that unfortunately there isn't one anymore.
But that it did and was in that boot,no doubt. Sufficient time to make such a smell that the boot had to be left open day and night . I'm having a deja vu of Casey Anthony car boot Sad

I read a comment from a DM reader today (on a different subject) which struck a chord.

'It's not just who you know. It's not just what you know. It's what you know about who you know.'

This about sums up my impression of what is going on.

If Detective Amaral's claim that the Mcs hid Madeleine in a coffin in Luz church a month after she disappeared is correct, then that would line up with his theory that Madeleine's body was put into cold storage for several weeks (prior to being carried in the Scenic hire car - the cadaver dog alerts). Bodily fluids in the Scenic hire car consistent with a body having been put into cold storage, I do believe.

If the Mcs hired the  Scenic exactly three weeks after Madeleine's alleged abduction then that would be 24th May 2007. And if Amaral is correct on the timing of Madeleine being placed in a coffin in the Luz church  one month after her disappearance. That would be 3rd June 2007

So that would make the period of time between 24th May 2007 - hiring the Scenic - and 3rd June 2007 - placing Madeleine in a coffin - extremely significant. Especially the day/s leading up to 3rd June. 

I have always been curious about the two men driving all the way from Scotland to Luz in a van with an inflatable bill-board. Gerry mentions this in his diary on 28th May 2007 as this event had apparently already had press coverage. It seems extraordinary that the Mcs could not have had billboards done locally or carried as air freight, for instance. Why did a van need to come out to Luz around these dates?

 I wonder what else was in that van? If Amaral's claim is correct, and Madeleine was placed in a coffin on 3rd June, then one has to consider the kind of preparations that would need to take place to prepare a body  for a funeral. 

Perhaps some other 'essentials' - much more essential than an inflatable billboard - were carried out in that van?

If the funeral took place at the church in Luz on 3rd June,  does that mean that it was conducted by Kate and Gerry's chum Father Seddon? I would be fascinated to know the answer to this. Then the coffin containing the woman (and Madeleine?) would have been taken to the crematorium on the same day I presume?

 I wonder who the woman was who was being cremated that day? That must be on public record, surely.

Isn't it a strange coincidence that the  crematorium in the region had been closed for a month prior to this date for maintenance, so that must mean there was a backlog of bodies, surely? Or other crematoriums were used during this period. And I wonder where the ashes from this woman (and Madeleine's?   Shocked)  went?

A look at what is on record for what else the Mcs were supposed to have been up to around these possibly 'key' dates?

Kate in her book records:
--------

"Saturday 2 June. It wasn't unusual for investigative or campaign issues to eat into our family days, and this was one of those occasions. Before we took the children out to Praia da Rocha beach, Gerry needed to catch up with the emails that had accumulated while we'd been in Madrid and I had a letter I wanted to write to J.K Rowling......"

--------

 After writing to J.K Rowling Kate records: "It wasn't enough to prevent me from sliding down the slippery slope for the rest of the day." Then she includes an excerpt from her diary:
--------

"Crying in bed again - can't help it......the thought of Madeleine's fear and pain tears me apart........"
----------

(Kate then goes on to write about how paedophiles should be 'kept' in a 'secure location of some description.' A very, very strange passage which I think probably indicates that Kate knows that what happened to Madeleine is connected with paedophiles but, because, imo, Kate knows who they are, she is conflicted so is extraordinarily benevolent towards them. But this is a subject for another thread...)

Kate's account of events of Saturday 2nd June in her book - obviously written much later than the diary as the book was not published until 2011 - is quite different to her diary account. The passage of time has lead to an amazingly selective memory and some convenient air-brushing,  imo. To the extent that the whole afternoon has been airbrushed out of the book. An afternoon at the beach with the family during which Kate, in her diary,  records she had never felt so relaxed.

Note, Kate fails to include the vital phrase: "never felt so relaxed since Madeleine was taken." So, the implication is that  Kate had never (in her whole life) felt so relaxed.

Amazing! Her daughter has been abducted by paedophiles and held in a hellish liar and on the eve of the month 'anniversary' of Madeleine's alleged abduction, Kate is more relaxed that she has ever been in her whole life. 

Why would that be, I wonder? What was happening or about to happen over that weekend?

Hmmmm - I can understand why the ghost-writers/publishers felt it was necessary to air-brush Kate's euphoric Saturday 2nd June afternoon at the beach out of the book. 

What is even more intriguing is how Kate starts her diary entry for Saturday:
-----
"SATURDAY, JUNE 2: I can't remember today (which is now yesterday!)."
-------
So this tells us that Kate wrote the Saturday diary entry on Sunday 3rd June, or so she claims. But despite claiming that by Sunday when she supposedly wrote the entry she cannot remember what happened (on the Saturday, allegedly) Kate then goes on to give a fairly detailed account of exactly what she and the family did that Saturday. 

------

"The morning was spent doing paperwork. I wrote a letter to JK Rowling, asking for her help in keeping M in the public eye............"

An enjoyable afternoon—I never felt so relaxed. I felt it was wrong. S and A had fun and that was important. I also worried about what people might think, like "How can they manage to...?"
It seems that Sean is liking the beach more these days. We had tea in a nearby restaurant—good, despite still thinking that I had to do normal things without feeling guilty. We left around 7.30pm and the kids were completely exhausted.
Fed up again —poor M. Once again it took a long time before S and A were sorted. Finally went to church for 10 minutes.
Private worship (despairing!).
--------


So Kate's  claim that she cannot remember Saturday 2nd June and her diary account of the Saturday completely contradict each other.

I would suggest that the day  Kate cannot remember, or chooses not to remember, is Sunday 3rd June

In her book, Kate writes nothing about the daytime events of Sunday 3rd June. However, she recounts a conversation that she and Gerry had that evening when it was dark and they were quietly working on their computers in which: "We acknowledged the possibility that Madeleine might no longer be alive.....Would we ever be able to return to our home, the home we had all shared with her? Maybe we should move else-where. Where?............For me the honest exposure of this buried poison was like lancing a boil. Admitting these secret fears and concerns......and sharing them with the only other person who was persecuted in the same way, made the suddenly a little easier to understand and to manage. Strengthened and comforted, I fell asleep that night more peacefully than I had in many days."


Seems like something cathartic happened that weekend. Which, if Amaral's claim is true, would be Madeleine being laid to rest finally. imo.

Gerry's blog entries for 2nd and 3rd June may also provide some clues.

Gerry does mention the beach visit for 2nd June and it appears that, according to Gerry, some of the wider family were there too. He mentions something about managing to get a bit to eat which suggests to me that Saturday was a very busy day for him and there was scarcely time to eat. Gerry's entry for Sunday 3rd June records that Chris and Les, who had driven out from Scotland to Luz with a van containing an inflatable billboard, were returning home that day. Guess they had brought out what had been needed and the job was now done, so to speak.

Hmmmm. Theorizing as always.

Thanks for providing the references -

I read from one of them that Amaral

'suggested the McCanns hid Madeleine's body in the woman's coffin at Praia da Luz catholic church – which they had a key for – a month after she vanished in 2007.'

I wonder what gave him grounds for this suggestion..to be so precise about timing.

I too find the whole 'van driving from Scotland with billboard' absurd - and more than likely a means of transporting something to help the Mc Canns. There had to be some devious reason for that escapade.

You could be right with your theory.. certainly Amaral would not be suggesting the body was hidden in a coffin for no reason..

I do think you are right too with there being a significant reason for their improved state of mind. No matter who they are and what they are capable of I do believe that Kate would have wanted her daughter laid to rest in some way. I also believe this would have been of some comfort and that she could not help but relay this somehow in her diary entries.  The truth often slips out...

I suppose it would be pretty easy to put people under surveillance. And as the Portuguese did not believe TM's version of events, then they would have quite a high index of suspicion in terms of all the comings and goings.

When a child disappears in suspicious circumstances, the family, close friends and last people who saw the child are often involved. 

And the mysterious 'disappearance' of a child where family and friends insist that it was an abduction makes it all the more suspicious. Why be so insistent that it was an abduction by a stranger?

And, as  - sadly -  when children disappear suspiciously they are quite often found dead - especially as time goes on - then I imagine the Portuguese police would have been watching TM closely to see what they were up to following the alleged 'abduction'. With a high index of suspicion that a body was being concealed prior to final disposal. 

Gerry certainly had some interesting bedside reading, as noted by Portuguese police.

Yes, hopefully the PJ have a lot more information than was released.

Whilst the Mc Canns  are despicable if they have covered up the death of their daughter, they are still human and I still expect human reactions and behaviour in everything they do.

I think that their somewhat warped mind-sets would place an emphasis on 'being laid to rest' whereas they should have placed a much bigger emphasis on Madeleine being protected from harm. And thus remaining alive, happy and healthy. 

Having failed to do that, I presume they tried to make themselves feel better by at least 'doing the proper thing' and making sure there was a final goodbye and resting place.

Again, this is all about them. Nothing to do with Madeleine at all. Who deserved to stay alive and enjoy a happy childhood and become an adult. Her life was taken away from her by someone/several people. And this can hardly be compensated for by a 'fitting' goodbye which will not benefit her in the slightest.

Just about appeasing the consciences of those who failed to ensure this child's safety. 

I find the Mcs phony religious 'convictions' about as creepy as their saintly chum, Father Seddon. Who, I suspect, arrived on the scene with some specific jobs to perform. 

Creepy, I find them all repulsive.

Yes - any parent capable of hiding and covering up a child's death and not allowing that child to have 
their death acknowledged in public -  to save their own ends is despicable.
The friends that surrounded them are as bad. Any one of them could have told the truth.

However, I'm still confident that the 'truth will out'. Until it does there's no rest for anyone

Yes - and Father Seddon - (edited - that should read Hubbard) in an interview stated that Kate liked to return to Luz as that was the last place she saw Madeleine. I suspect it was the last time she saw Madeleine alive, as well as the first/last time she saw Madeleine dead. 

If Amaral is correct in his coffin theory, then Madeleine's 'funeral' could have taken place at the Catholic church in Luz. A place where the McCanns often sought refuge and to which, perhaps vitally, they had they key. With the cremation taking place at the region's crematorium.

Father Seddon (again I meant Hubbard) strikes me as heavily invested in this possible scenario. To the extent that I wonder whether he was involved in a particular service. In at least one interview with him, his words and body language are highly suggestive of deception. To the extent that he knows what happened and played an important role, imo.

Just to add: Father Seddon I think is also an interesting character. He visited Luz in May after the 'abduction'. He took a service with the Catholic priest in mid-May at the Luz church, I do believe. 

Plus, on 3rd June 2007 he held an hour long service at the church where he used to work in Fazerley, I think.

Father Seddon married Kate and Gerry and baptized Madeleine and is a very close friend of the McCann family.

(Details about the priests on the link in a post below.)

Taken from his April 08 statement in MCCANNFILES
I am the person referred to above and I am a Priest of the Roman Catholic Church, a position that I have held for more than 20 years. During the past 18 months I have exercised my functions as a priest in three parishes in the Manchester area and previously I spent sixteen years as a priest in Liverpool. I have known Kate and Gerry McCann for over 10 years. I met them as a couple at the wedding of my friends Mark and Linda, which I presided over at Easter 1997 in Liverpool. Kate had been invited to the ceremony as Lindas childhood friend and Gerry accompanied her. I remember that after the ceremony I got to know Kate and Gerry seriously for the first time, although I had perhaps already met Kate for short moments on previous occasions as Lindas friend. During the reception I particularly remember Gerry because of the fact that he was wearing a kilt, which gave him an extrovert air and meant that he did not go unnoticed. I also discovered that we shared an enthusiastic interest for golf and we spent a lot of time talking about this. Since then, Kate, Gerry and I became good friends and they continue to be part of the social circle today.

In 1998 I carried out Kate and Gerrys wedding ceremony, again in Liverpool. At that time I already knew Kate and Gerry quite well and had played many golf matches with Gerry. I remember that they gave me a set of golf clubs from St Andrews as a present for carrying out the ceremony. I also baptised their first child, Madeleine, but more than being a priest, I consider myself above all to be their friend.

During the last ten years our friendship has been constant and i have always kept in regular contact wherever they have been. I travelled to Amsterdam to visit them when Gerry was working there, and we see each other at least three or four times a year. I have spent other holiday periods with them including one occasion in Stratford upon Avon after the birth of the twins. During the time they were in Amsterdam I was very ill and was forced to spend six or seven weeks without working. Kate and Gerry gave me much support and phoned me regularly. I ended up becoming a very good friend of the whole family.

Re: McCanns Hire Car Contract

Post by j.rob on 19.02.15 17:27

Perhaps of interest with regard to timings, Gerry in his blog states that Sean has developed a taste for sea-bass on 8th June 2007. Given that Amaral's theory states that Madeleine's body was hidden in  coffin on 3rd June 2007, I presume that, following 'the final goodbyes and disposal' Gerry's mind then turns to the scent that might be emanating from the hire Scenic. And perhaps forestalling the possibility of sniffer dogs being deployed to follow scents.

Which is, presumably, also why a neighbour spotted the Scenic car-boot open day and night (after the McCann's arrival at their hire villa) and why TM then claimed that raw meat carried in the car had left traces of blood. And dirty nappies had caused a stench in the car. 

One thing that strikes me is that the McCann's arrival at their hire villa was not until early July - a month after the date which Detective Amaral suggests is the day that Madeleine's body was placed in a coffin at the church in Luz. So is the odour of cadaver so strong and lingering that it would continue to cause a stench over a month after the car may have been used to carry a dead body? That's a very long time. If the McCanns had been using the car regularly from 3rd June surely the smell in the car during the month of June would have been unbearable? If, even by July, it was necessary to leave the boot open day and night? If the twins and/or other people had traveled in the car, surely they would have been repulsed by the smell?

Thank you for this. I have bolded parts I think might be significant. But I have just realized that I have muddled up Father Seddon and Father Hubbard. I have no idea what Father Seddon is like (although the photo in the link below might possibly provide clues). 

Whereas Father Hubbard - who has been interviewed quite a bit - comes over as deceptive and oily. In the post up-thread I meant to suggest that it could have been Father Hubbard who was involved in some kind of service for Madeleine on 3rd June. In relation to Detective Amaral's theory that Madeleine was hidden in a coffin then at the Luz church. As Hubbard, since 6th May 2007 I think, was Anglican priest at the church.

Another of those amazing coincidences that the Hubbards arrived from Canada to Luz just three days after Madeleine's alleged abduction!

As seen from above, Father Seddon is an old family friend who married the McCanns and baptized Madeleine. He flew out to support the McCanns following Madeleine's disappearance. While in Portugal in mid-May 2007, Father Seddon celebrated mass at Nossa Senhora da Luz church with local priest Father Jose Manuel Pacheco. On June 3, 2007 he led an hour-long prayer vigil at the Holy Name RC Church in Fazakerly where he was formerly the Parish priest. Father Seddon is a member of the clergy at Our Lady of Compassion RC church in Formby near Liverpool.

Wonder if the Hubbards and Seddon knew each other?

On the left in this photo. I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But unfortunately anyone so closely associated with the Mcs makes me suspicious. And he does not look like a character that would fill me with confidence.

Processos Volume XVI page 4199

Email from Stuart Prior on 23 April 2008 to Ricardo Manuel Gonçalves Paiva

Synopsis re statement of Michael Terrence WRIGHT 16th April 2008

Michael's wife (Anne-Marie) is the cousin of Kate McCANN but has known her since she was about 8 years old when she used to holiday on The Isle of Man where he used to live. He has known Gerry since 1997 when he started to go out with Kate. They now generally meet up on key family events.
The families stayed together in each others homes in 2006 and February 20117 and were planning a family holiday in the UK in June 2007.
He received a phone call around 11pm on 3rd May from his wife's mother informing him that Madeleine had been taken from her bed. Between 10am and 11am that morning he again spoke with Kate who wanted her parents to join them in Portugal.
Michael went out to Portugal on 5th May and initially stayed above Kate and Gerry on the Mark Warner complex. He returned to the UK on 11th May but made five further trips to Portugal;
14th May to 18th May, 8th June to 13th June with his wife and they looked after the twins when Kate and Gerry, went to Morocco.
12th July to 13th July he returned with Kate and the twins to attend the christening of his own children while Gerry was already in the UK. The McCANN'S returned to Portugal on 15th July.
22nd August to 1st September to replace the CAMERON family. Here he assisted in arranging the return of Gerry and Kate by booking a removal firm in Lagos in his name. 7th September to 9th September. He helped clean up the villa as the McCANNS with the CAMERONS and Eileen McCANN returned home on 9th September.
In August and September he stayed in Gerry and Kate's rented villa.
Michael assisted with the running of the Madeline campaign and describes Gerry and Kate as distraught, and how they crumbled and sobbed when not out at official meetings or media conferences.
Michael was aware of the hire of the Renault Espace; he was collected from the airport by Kate on 12th July in it and drove the vehicle regularly in August and September. He used the vehicle for shopping, and to the rubbish/recycling area in Praia for the removal of gardening rubbish. He drove the twins to the beach and kiddies club and also for airport runs. Other times he would be a passenger when Gerry or Sandy Cameron would drive.
A number of refuse sites were used. Two areas on the villa estate, at the main entrance and at the top of the hill. A site on Cemetery Road, a site on a road above the Mark Warner complex and a site between the villa and the church.
On a number of occasions he noticed an unpleasant smell in the vehicle that he put down to the twins used nappies which had been discarded with the general waste. He was not aware of any spillages in the vehicle or anyone cleaning it.
Michael further stated that on 6th May he purchased a large quantity of Pizza's from the pizza shack on the beach at Praia da Luz. The girl serving him was from Liverpool and after introductions she said her father "George" had seen a man carrying a child in the early hours of 4th May in the resort. He is unaware if "George" has ever spoken to the authorities.
