There are several possibilities , but I’ve heard so much conflicting information that it’is hard to settle on one. . 1. Maddie wandered out and fell /got trapped in construction or a well or something ( one story reported a lot of building going on in the vicinity ) It’s possible although LE claimed to have thoroughy checked wells and construction areas and found no indication that she had visited any of thise areas.
2. Maddie wanders out on her own but then is abducted . Possible but unlikely.
3.Burglar breaks in only to steal items. Maddie is awake , screams , burglar tries to silence her , inadvertently kills her .takes her body to hide the evidence of murder. There were cases of breakins around the time the McCanns were tar the resort. Case against ? no scream heard , conflicting evidence in whether there was a break in attempt or not . Portuguese LE report only Maddie’s mom’s finger prints were found no evidence someone tried to get in from outside ( but unsure about how reliable this info is )
4. Intruder comes just to take Maddie . See comments about evidence for break in . However given cases like Jaycee Douggard, Jayme Closs , it is possible.
5..Maddie accidently dies , is found by parent that covers it up out of panic , fear of having other children taken away . possible , but the timeline wouid not seem to support it . Info in favor - US lab with “cutting edge” dna methods recently offered to determine the provenance of dna that uK forensics could not parse out because it may have been a mix from several people.. They offered to analyze the data (no sample required , only the original test data) to do it for free. Parents did not take company up on offer ( as far as we know) . On the other hand if the parents were responsible would they really keep up this ruse for so many years ? If people can think of other plausible scenarios , let’s hear them!
The company offered , and it was mentioned somewhere that it would take less than a week to get results. Although Scotland Yard should share it , some stories said that reporters had not gotten a reply from the McCanns when asking if the family would be interested in taking up the offer.
Sounds like a clutching at straws type suspect to me. Ney was attracted to older boys, not very young girls.
Maybe it's just that any news about the McCann saga sells newspapers, but a cynic might suggest there is a deeper reason for keeping the story newsworthy, year after year, with one nonsense suspect/theory after another...
It's like the McCann case is used as a 'mouthpiece' case, with the police PR department going all out to publicise suspects, planned investigations, police activity etc.
None of the standard police silence in an ongoing case, or information released only on a need to know basis. Far from it.
Why would the police waste millions chasing up nonsense leads, yet refuse free case assistance from the world's top genetic lab?
But then again, why haven't the UK police tried solving the Batman Rapist case with familial DNA? They went out and DNA tested 2,000 suspects, yet it seems like they've never heard about how the EARONS and Norcal cases were solved.
Is the reason the police aren't using the help of the genetics lab -- because the DNA in question is of unknown relevance to the case?
This is the dna found in the trunk of the rented car used by the parents ( it was rented after the disappearance) . The issue is that several persons dna was found so at that time a decade ago they couldn’t parse out the identities . There have been conflicting explanations as to why Maddie’s DNA might have should up in the car , touch dna from transporting items of hers and her siblings in the trunk , or alternately that if the parents did hide her body in fir example a freezer they had access to they might have been transporting the body to a different location.
That seems like a pretty outrageous claim but nothing in this case makes sense.
One fact that isn’t in dispute is that Scotland Yard was testing the dna found in the trunk but got an inconclusive result due to the presence of dna from others . Ten years on thiis company claims they can give a definitive result , if its negative for Maddie then it helps clear up something that has cast suspicion on the parents . It it’s positive perhaps the lab can suggest if it’s likely just touch dna which again would clear up some questions.
From what i understand during the extended investigation by the UK team , people that have left it have complained that they haven’t been allowed to do things such as reinterview the couples that were with the parents that night or pursue anything that might cast the parents in a bad light. If that is true ( and with all the conflicting stories there is no way to know) then it is quite concerning. If the UK can use this companies services , even it it is giviing the company a PR boost , it could still provide some useful information .
Finally, the other day the investigation team in the UK requested refunding and now we have a new person of interest . My what excellent timing ! But no use of free testing services to clear up a point which has been without answer for a decade ? Odd.
nowhereman: CBK totally was

nowhereman: can't confirm it, but he went completely silent the day JJD was taken into custody. Recent activity before that. I think he was last logged in after the arrest, but there is a lag before you would "time out"
Sept 14, 2020 2:25:58 GMT
cherylh: It would be great if the investigators or law enforcement would confirm JJD's participation.
Sept 14, 2020 18:36:34 GMT
cherylh: It would be interesting to look back at his posts.
Sept 15, 2020 22:48:29 GMT
artbe4words: It has been said by others that CBK asked many questions about DNA and then later would delete his questions. I heard he deleted a lot of his comments. It did appear he was trying to lead people down a trail that had nothing to do with the truth too.

f1guyus: I would love to think that Joe spent his golden years thinking about getting rolled up by the “samples” he spread around.
Sept 17, 2020 1:43:11 GMT
warren: I think about that too. But its not the police I worry about knocking on the door, but one of those samples I spread around all growed up.
Sept 17, 2020 17:04:44 GMT
elir: my understanding is that cbk did delete comments , but to be fair other members have done that as well. some,upon leaving the sub, have asked me to delete all of their posts.it is odd but not as uncommon as one might think.

mtf65: elir, did kNr and Trick delete posts?
Sept 23, 2020 1:17:18 GMT
elir: I havent checked for them but many members have deleted their posts, I have deleted some of my own posts.
Sept 23, 2020 3:46:23 GMT
steelbike: It would be interesting to find out that the ToT and KnR poster(s) had been JJD because of the things that they had insinuated.
