Maddie case: new research has started in Portugal – World Today News
Monday evening, the Portuguese police announced that new searches would be carried out “in the coming days, at the request of the German authorities”, concerning the disappearance of the British girl Madeleine McCann, in 2007. According to television images Portuguese, a perimeter was delimited near a dam located about fifty kilometers from the place where “Maddie” disappeared, shortly before her fourth birthday, while she was staying with her parents in a hotel complex in Praia da Luz, a small seaside resort in the Algarve region (in the south of the country).
No details on the nature and location of the searches
These operations “are currently underway in Portugal”, according to a press release from the Brunswick prosecutor’s office, issued this Tuesday noon. These are new “researches” carried out with the support of the German judicial police, said the prosecution. German justice did not give more details on the nature and location of the ongoing research in this case, which is one of the great criminal enigmas of recent years.
As a reminder, since 2020, a German with the profile of a repeat pedophile has been the main suspect in the girl’s disappearance. The investigation stalled for years before this man, who at the time of the events lived a few kilometers from the hotel, drew the attention of the authorities. The Brunswick public prosecutor’s office has since been carrying out its own investigations in conjunction with the Portuguese and German authorities. Christian B. is currently serving a prison sentence in Germany for the rape of a 72-year-old American woman, committed in 2005 in Portugal. He has also been charged in Germany for five other crimes and sexual offenses committed between 2000 and 2017, still in Portugal.
