Madeleine's Mum To Be 'Suspect'
Updated: 08:56, Friday September 07, 2007

Kate McCann will be formally declared a suspect in the disappearance of her daughter Madeleine, a family friend has said.
She is said to be "amazed" at the development in the investigation.
 
Kate to be declared a suspectSky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "It's an incredible twist in this long-running story.

"I have spoken to a family friend who said Kate has been told that when she comes back to the police station in a couple of hours she will formally be declared a suspect."

He said it doesn't mean that police are close to charging Madeleine's mother.

"The police are doing this so they can ask her a list of 22 questions about the night Madeleine disappeared," Brunt said.

"There are specific questions they need to ask and they can only do that if she is a suspect."

He added: "Until now, she has had great faith in the police to find Madeleine and is amazed at this sudden turn of events."

The McCann family spokesman said: "She is shocked and surprised in several ways. First of all that such an accusation could be made against her.

"And obviously she is concerned that such a line of investigation can become a distraction from further attempts to find Madeleine."

Mrs McCann expects to be made an "arguido", a formal suspect, when she returns to the police station in Portimao following nearly 11 hours of questioning yesterday.

An arguido receives more protection under Portuguese law, including the right to remain silent in formal interviews.

Madeleine's father is also due to be re-interviewed later today.

Read the article 5ivetimes, they have questions to ask her and could only do so if she was made a formal suspect. It would seem the natural process given that they don't really seem to have anything to go on after four months.

Even if the parents are found to be in the wrong, it wouldn't give you too much faith in the Portuguese police. 

Why not? I am sick of hearing of the bungling "foreign johnny" from the brit media. Im am confident the Portuguese police know their own sod.

What got me was the fact that the parents never seemed to 'be in bits' about the whole episode. They were at the forefront of a media campaign that was spearheaded by the tabloids in England and made out that everyone was stupid except the McCanns. Looking at Ms McCann, she has evidently never missed a hair appointment etc etc, despite her trauma ... The thing never added up.. Still think the theory about the parents allegedly doping the child so as they could relax and then allegedly finding that she had overdosed holds sway. Allegedly!

Still refuse to entertain the idea that the parents have conned institutions, politicians, sports and music stars and the general public (who donated hundreds of thousands). It'd be the con of all-time and would shatter everyone's belief in the concept of truth in the media as well as human nature.(which was hanging by a thread anyway in both cases)

Totally agree. The press have decided that the Portuguese police are crap for the simple reason that they won't give the press statements every five minutes. Portugal is a modern European country with a police force to match, it's not some central American junta.

They released the crime scene before they were finished it, then they go back to look for evidence after another family had lived in the apartment. And to think of the giving out that was done when the family had contaminated the bedroom by allowing other family friends etc to enter it.

They took three weeks to release the description of a man seen carrying a child from the apartments where the McCanns were staying, and only did so under pressure from the British PM.

Must be true it was in the Sun.  ::)

Had read it somewhere that the McCann's set up a Limited company so they could but all the money that they got into it. Now you tell me is this the true actions of a couple who have just lost a child. To me they are a gulity as hell and have took the whole lot of us for mugs. Tell me what have they done with this money that has been raised besides fly around the world....... They are cute whores i tell ye.

Would appear from reports that the main evidence has been found in the next apt the family moved to and the car they rented 5 weeks after the dissappearance. I think history will show the police did an amazing job despite pressure from British media and high profile pols to treat this case as an abduction.

Was it Sherlock Holmes who said something like "Whenever you have eliminated the impossible, what you are left with, however improbable, is the truth".  What I think is happening here is that the police believe they have eliminated abduction, kidnap by a third party etc and what they are left with, however improbable, are the parents.

I still can't believe that the parents could concoct such a brass necked cover up roping in the media, celebrities etc. ???

The other main question if they are involved...what the feck have they done with the body??  They appear to have hidden it very well if they had to act quickly ???

jesus,

Portuguese police have suggested to Kate McCann that traces of her daughter's blood were found in a car the family hired 25 days after the girl went missing, a family friend said.

Mrs McCann, who is being questioned again by police, fears she will be charged today over the death of Madeleine

Well thats the bungled sedative theory out the window. If she was sedated (overly) there wouldnt be blood?

Might be a silly question but how would the police know it’s her blood if they have nothing to compare it with?

surely if they have a sample of her DNA they would be able to get it from that?
