    Right, got it now. That's what happens when I'm posting on WS and watching Crimewatch at the same time.

    Anyway, in the update, they said several callers had given the same name for the e fit man.

    Maybe because she genuinely felt it could have been?

    So if Gerry took Maddie's body away, when was he seen again? How much time did he have to dump the body?

    And when the police compared the actual man to the photofit they'd done with Tanner, they said the resemblance was "uncanny", so presumably he bears a resemblance to Murat too. The child was also a little blonde girl wearing similar pyjamas to Madeliene.

    A witness can be genuinely mistaken about who they saw, its not always lying.

    Which photofit? The Eggman or this dude?



    Or there is a third portrait done with Tanner I don't know about?

    Seriously, Tanner changed her story so many times she has zero credibility in my eyes. Zero.

    Murat does not resemble JT's sketch that much, though...

    I thought that mustached fella wasn't Tanner's, it was somebody else. She said she never saw a frontal view of the face.

    Tanners original sketch was an Egg with Hair.

    Yes, but she also stated the mustached fella resembled the guy she saw. My point is, the dude could not resemble both Murat and the creep with a mustache fom the sketch. Someone is lying.

    This argument is now obsolete. They've traced a man who was at the place where Tanner saw a man, at the time she saw him, and who was carrying a 2 year old girl wearing similar pj's to Madeliene's.

    The Tanner sighting is no longer relevant.

    I'd say it is relevant, because she was lying for some reason. Why would anyone lied in such a situation?

    Like all the best lies, it has a kernel of truth.

    The Smiths confirmed that it was common to see parents walking with sleeping children around PDL at that time of night. Not many folks have cars and the distances are very short anyway, tourists are about at odd hours (jet lag).

    Tanner probably did see some guy with his daughter, and then used it to base her allegations on. Did Crimewatch confirm the exact timing she saw this guy, or explain why Gerry and Jez did not see him? Apparently she saw a father carrying a sleeping child, but did Crimewatch confirm when? Why didn't the PJ find this father earlier?

    This explains the pause in between seeing the guy and telling LE about him - about two hours.

    She knew all along her sighting wasn't of Madeleine but used it for a red herring, probably at the insistence of the overwhelming Gerry.

    Heck they probably had all seen sleeping babies being carried by parents, all holiday, every night they left Tapas someone probably walked past them picking up their own child from the night creche. It was a common sight.

    It could have been part of the plot "there's so many parents doing this, we wont stand out".

    These people, while woefully short in common sense, are not exactly stupid. This is part of a "pact" and someone clever thought up answers to everything.

    Except of course, the Smiths...the one aspect that couldn't be foreseen.

    How was she lying? We know the man exists, he's been traced.

    I just watched the UK Crime Watch program. I do not suspect the parents for a second.
    I DO think there is something major about to come down the pipe though...with all this new media attention.
    My impression was that they are not looking at the men profiled as 'suspects' but rather ruling them out.

    I pray that my gut feeling is right and that she is still alive.
