I have followed this case since the day after Madeleine disappeared, and I've followed it as close as I possibly could. I have two children who are exactly the age of Madeleine and the twins, and maybe that is why it grasped my attention more than any other case of child abduction. For a long time, I was convinced that Madeleine had an accident while being left alone in the apartment, and that her parents covered it up. Now, two years later, I have climbed the fence again, as I've had a lot of time to think the whole case through. If one of the McCanns had discovered that Madeleine is dead, and disposed of her that night, the Tapas 9 must know that the McCanns statements about what they've been doing that night was a lie. What made me change my mind is the fact that I just can't believe that all of the Tapas-friends would cover for the McCanns. The McCanns have a lot to lose if it turns out that they've put their children into a position where one of them tragically died. But on the other hand- so have their friends who were with them that evening. I just can't believe that all of the Tapas 9 would cover for the McCanns and possibly risk jail, and losing their children too. None of them could be sure that Madeleine wouldn't be found later, or that the police wouldn't be able to prove she died in the apartment. To me it looks as the Tapas 9 had even more to lose by lying than the McCanns. It's not as if they all had several days to think this through, and to make sure they've all had a plausible story and timeline to stick to. They' would have had few hours only, and I believe most of these hours would have been very chaotic. It also seems strange that none of them has ever come forward with their knowledge and that all of them have kept their secrets without ever spilling anything. I find it also unlikely that someone would be able to dispose of a body in a country they don't know, without it being found later. That's my 2cents, pardon my poor English. I hope to see your view of my aspect.
