    I think that Scotland Yard is playing rope-a-dope with their prime suspect(s).

    That is my first instinct as well. If they aren't then it is they that are truly going to look like the dopes.

    Even the LAPD would have confirmed the timelines and checked phone records well before now.

    "On one reading of the evidence..." So there are other readings.

    I think he's talking out of both sides of his mouth.

    He also said that they think it could have been a burglary gone wrong.

    DCI Redwood said he could be the man who took Madeleine - but there could be an innocent explanation.

    He said there had been a four-fold increase in the number of burglaries in the area between January and May 2007 and one possible scenario was that Madeleine had disturbed a burglar.

    "Windows were a feature, as well as burglaries taking place in the evening," he said.
    If Madeleine disturbed a burglar that hardly seems pre-planned.

    If Madeleine disturbed a burglar, why weren't they burgled?

    Everything I post is my opinion only, can change at any time, and is not intended to replace fact.

    What's the likelihood of a burglar turning a burglary into an abduction and possible murder?
    Not likely. Chances are the burglar would just take what they wanted and leave or just leave.
    The above mentioned text and views are my opinion and mine alone.

    I wanted to address the original title of this thread: "would you leave a child that young alone?"

    I did planned to do something similar once in 2002 (So, several years before Madeleine disappeared. I might think harder about it after her story became so well known)

    My husband and I were meeting friends for a vacation. We were all staying in the same hotel. They all had small children too. for just one of the evening we were together, we planned to put all the children to sleep, then meet in the hotel's common area, after dinner, which we ate with our children. We spent the day at a family themed amusement park. We had permission to bring wine ourselves and serve it in the common area.

    My son was 22 months old.

    I want to point out several differences.

    1. This was a high rise hotel room with only one door which opened to an interior hallway.
    2. We brought a baby monitor with us and we tested it earlier in the day to be sure we'd be able to hear him through it from the common area.
    3. We were still physically in the same building that he was in, merely in another room, albeit at some distance.
    4. He was sleeping in a pack and play so he couldn't climb out and wander away.
    5. We didn't plan to visit for long.

    But yes, we were planning to do something similar.

    BBM ~ I had not heard this before, please tell me this is a joke? Does anyone know when this actually happened, as in how soon after MM's disappearance?
