The German police investigators who take the case of the girl who disappeared in 2007 while on vacation with her parents in a hotel in Portugal, Madeleine McCann, claim to be “100% sure” of having found the man who abducted her and subsequently killed her .
It’s about the German pedophile Christian Brueckner, a 44-year-old man who is currently in jail for various crimes. For this reason, investigators are taking the “time necessary” to gather all the evidence and be able to press charges against the pedophile by 2022.
“I am not saying that what we have now is insufficient. But he’s in prison so we don’t have so much pressure. We have time”, has stated in The Mirror the German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters. “Now we may be able to charge him. We have that evidence. But it’s not just about accusing you, we want to accuse you with the best possible evidence, “added the prosecutor.
The defendant was living in a van near Praia de la Luz when McCann disappeared, making him the main suspect by British police in 2017, although the report was not released until June 2020.
“They are circumstantial evidence, we do not have scientific evidence. If we had a video of the act or a photo of Madeleine dead with Brueckner on camera, we would not have had to make a public appeal, “said the prosecutor.
But this is not the only crime that Christian is accused of. Brueckner: In 2004 an Irish woman was charged with rape in the Algarve, Portugal, and two other incidents in which she allegedly exhibited herself to minors.
The prosecution assures that Madeleine is dead
In June 2020, the German prosecutor’s office assured that the little girl was dead, although without giving further details. A presupposition that Wolters has now insisted on: “We don’t have a body or DNA, but we do have other evidence. Based on the evidence we have, it doesn’t lead to any other conclusion. I can’t say on what basis we assume she’s dead. But for us There is no other possibility. There is no hope that she is alive. “
Madeleine McCann disappeared in 2007, at the age of three, during her holiday stay in an Algarve apartment. The little girl was on vacation with her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann; his two-year-old twin brothers; and a group of family friends.
Madeleine disappeared from the Ocean Club resort apartment, in Praia da Luz, which triggered extensive research and international media coverage; however, no trace of the girl has ever been found.
