Will the famous specimen surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann finally be closed?
In specimen you haven’t been pursuit the tragic situation, the girl was just 3 years old when she was kidnapped while on vacation with her family in Algarve, Portugal, in 2007. And while authorities have spent 14 years searching and questioning suspects — including her parents — they never found any vestige to solve it … until now.
According to The Mirror, investigators are ‘100% convinced’ that they have unbearable proof to tuition the suspect named Christian Brueckner for the disappearance and possible murder of Madeleine. The 44-year-old reportedly is currently serving time for several other crimes in Germany — including the rape of an elderly woman. Hoping to bring charges versus the man by next year, German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told the publication that they still want to collect as much vestige as possible just in case:
“We’re confident we have the man who took and killed her. It is now possible that we could charge. We have that vestige now. But it’s not just well-nigh charging him — we want to tuition him with the weightier soul of vestige possible. When we still have questions, it would be nonsense to tuition rather than wait for the answers that could strengthen our position.”

“That’s why we said we’ll investigate as long as there are leads or information for us to pursue. I’m not saying that what we have is insufficient now. But he’s in prison, so we don’t have this pressure on us. We have time on our hands.”
It’s so-called that Brueckner was living in a camper van in the Praia da Luz region of Algarve, Portugal, with phone records showing he received a undeniability near the child’s holiday suite well-nigh an hour surpassing Madeleine vanished. He moreover just left jail for petrol theft, and authorities requirement that he made a “confession” to a friend before, The Mirror reports. However, Wolters claims it is still all “circumstantial evidence,” adding:
“We have no scientific evidence. If we had a video of the act or a picture of Madeleine sufferer with Brueckner on camera, we wouldn’t have had to make a public appeal. But we only have concurrent evidence.”
He moreover admitted that prosecutors have no track if Madeleine is dead, how she may have died, or any vestige connecting Brueckner to her murder, explaining:
“We have no soul and no DNA but we have other evidence. Based on the vestige we have, it leads to no other conclusion. I can’t tell you on which understructure we seem she is dead. But for us, there’s no other possibility. There is no hope she is alive.”
Here’s hoping they can finally bring justice and peace for the family without all of these years. Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below).
