Kate (in her book "Madeleine", p. 71) about her entering of the apartment: [bolding mine] What struck me as odd when trying to visualize the above scenario: Why would Kate "pull a door to" of a room that she wanted to enter? Here is a link to the floor plan of apartment 5A (a bit further down the page): http://www.mccannfiles.com/id21.html Kate states that she entered the apartment through the (unlocked) patio doors. Not yet having entered the children's room, she then noticed that the door to this room was "open quite wide". She then says that she "walked over and gently began to pull it to". She has not yet entered the room. Imo it makes no sense to "pull the door to" of a room which one is going to enter.
