    Collection of McCann's (and family's) explanations

    If the moderators agree, I would like to have this thread be a collection of the McCann's (and their family's) public statements regarding what happened to Madeleine, responses to the evidence, etc. I think it would be helpful to have all of these in one place.

    I would like to contribute:

    The way that Kate knew immediately that Madeleine had been abducted (and therefore, the reason for her "They've taken her" cry) was because "Madeleine's favourite toy, her pink 'Cuddle Cat', was taken from her arms and placed beyond her reach by her kidnapper".

    Aunt Phil: They were having dinner nearby.

    "Nearby" was 60-70 yards away or more...down a winding path, with their view from the restaurant blocked by walls and shrubs.

    Aunt Phil needs to shut up
    Gerry Mc Cann needs to shut up
    Kate Mc Cann needs to shut up

    Get the point? MORE they talk, more idiotic they sound! Geez!

    Must add now the explanation that the DNA in the wheel well of the car was probably from a "soiled diaper or sweaty sandals", yea right, sweat, 25 days later???) I am not "feeling" it....

    interesting

    The explanations for the DNA evidence as provided by the family interest me. I think it is possibly the one area where they may trip themselves up a bit (if guilty of crime), not in a conclusive way but just in a "heads up" sort of way. I don't want to post how that might happen in public because there is the tiny chance they might hear of it and catch on to what I am watching for.

    Sorry, don't mean to be overly cryptic but wanted to just post to say I do find this thread interesting.

    If what we heard about the dog alerting to the car trunk is true, the DNA was from a DEAD person, so a "soiled diaper" or anything else must be ruled out.

    Did the kidnapper put 'Cuddle Cat' on the shelf before or after he/she washed the curtains?

    Apparently the resort room did not come with the amenity of taking out the trash, so the McCanns were forced to take their own trash to the dump.

    Or perhaps it was an extra charge, like the babysitting at night, so they decided to save a little and take their own trash to the dump. Cause that's what people do either on vacation or when they are searching for an abducted child and traveling all over the place.

    Or so they would have you believe.

    Taking "trash" to the dump does not leave the elements of spermine and cadaverine in the car for cadaver dogs to hit upon.

    Unless the "trash" in question is a dead child.

    Here's a new one, in an article about the McCanns' offering to take a Lie-Detector Test (in your dreams):

    http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.u...lie.3220922.jp

    "The couple believe its use as a "dumper truck" ferrying rotting meat, chicken carcasses and food scraps to nearby bins during the summer could also explain the excited reaction of specialist sniffer dogs when shown the car last month as part of a review of the case."

    Um, I guess they think the dogs were trained to sniff out chicken cadavers, right?

    So now we have sandal sweat, soiled nappies, and rotting meat. Whatever next?

    I just have to add, that if I were them, I would not be saying I transported lots of garbage bags in my vehicle. That lends itself to alot of different theories about disposing of a body. The song "How Bizarre" is going through my mind right now.

    "The car was also used on a daily basis to transport bag-loads of household waste including her younger siblings Sean and Amelie's nappies.

    The couple believe its use as a "dumper truck" ferrying rotting meat, chicken carcasses and food scraps to nearby bins during the summer could also explain the excited reaction of specialist sniffer dogs when shown the car last month as part of a review of the case."

    Don't we all put rotting meat, chicken carcasses and food scraps in our cars? I'm sure they fit them around the dirty nappies.
