Is there any explanation why Leandro Silva's DNA analysis would have cost 10.000 Euros whereas that of Carlos Alberto apparently did not?A few more thoughts on the possible CB link to JC's case. I just noticed in Jon Clarke's book, he says the following:
"I do believe Brueckner could have been involved in the Cipriano case. He was in Portugal at the time, living in nearby Praia da Luz, he had a close friend in Figueira, I discovered"
Who is this friend I wonder? Figueira (the Portimao one) is a sleepy inland village with a small population of just a few hundred people. It doesn’t have anything in the way of attractions and has next to no tourism.
I keep wondering if there is a possible sexual abuse link with regards the JC case. The police reports stated that traces of semen were discovered on Joana's bed, pillow, the wall next to the bed and in her underwear. Some of the articles implicating the stepfather and his half-brother are shown below.
Joana's stepfather refused to participate in an analysis of the sperm found on the little girl's knickers to prove whether or not there was a crime of rape. The PJ gave up undertaking the examination in the US to save 10 thousand Euros.
After Joana Cipriano's stepfather, Leandro Silva, refused to give a sample of his semen for the analysis, the National Institute of Forensic Medicine suggested to the Polícia Judiciária (PJ) the making of a DNA test in the US.
However, the 'indication was not followed' by the Judiciary due to the amounts involved, 10 thousand Euros, as advanced by Correio da Manha today. The PJ explained to the newspaper that the archival was made 'because even if it is proved that the sperm belongs to the suspect he can still allege that he cleaned his penis on the child's knickers'.
We recall that the police found in Leonor Cipriano's daughter's knickers, semen. Only an analysis would shed light regarding the crime of rape of the Figueira's child.
The Joana Case (2) *
There is a new defendant in the case of Joana Cipriano, who disappeared since 12 September 2004 from the village of Figueira (Portimão), where she lived with her mother. Carlos Alberto Silva, 23 years old, who works in his own family's scrap yard, near Portimão, was appointed as a defendant by the Judiciary Police (PJ), subject to the term of identity and residence, because, as the DN learned, his DNA coincides with traces of semen detected in Joan's underwear.
It was only yesterday afternoon that Carlos Alberto - resident in Lagos and half-brother of Leandro Silva, stepfather of Joana -, when confronted by the DN, will have realized his status as a defendant, since mid-March, which was confirmed by your lawyer. "I signed a document at the PJ on the advice of my lawyer, but I didn't even pay attention to what was written there, as I feel completely at ease. I'm innocent. I didn't violate anyone. I even argued with an inspector who was trying to incriminate me." , said Carlos Alberto.
PJ constitui mais um arguido no ″caso Joana″
Interesting that the family owned a scrap yard, just like CB's pal BP. That does sound a plausible place where CB might have had a "friend", in a village where there is nothing else of much interest...
