The missing bit of the equation that has only just struck me.

Herr Walters said, if only you could see the evidence we have.

Hitherto, Herr Walters has not revealed, to the public, all the evidence he has. Neither (seemingly) to Scotland Yard.

Now Scotland Yard have seen the other evidence and they, too, are convinced.

It does seem as though Madeleine is dead and Brueckner murdered her

MADDIE WITNESS Witness in Madeleine McCann probe to sue discredited Portuguese cop for defamation

A WITNESS in the Madeleine McCann probe is to sue discredited ­Portuguese cop Goncalo Amaral for defamation.

HGV driver Helge ­Busching, 49, identified prime suspect Christian B, 44, to cops.

His evidence helped nail the convicted p.a.e.dophile of a rape in Portugal in 2005 close to where Madeleine vanished in 2007, aged three.

Amaral — thrown off the case after wrongly identifying parents Kate and Gerry as suspects — branded German Busching and a pal “unreliable witnesses” in a book.

Busching told The Sun: “I’m not happy with what has been said about me by this policeman.”

His lawyer, George Tzeriz, said the criticism was “unjustified and unwarranted”.

He said: “He is a key witness in this investigation and is seen so by the police.”
I really hope he does sue.
Hope so....I mean aren’t the PT quite fixated on not having the self defamed etc..

In both cases, the victims were threatened with a 30-centimeter knife, the newspaper reports, adding that the young German woman could not see her attacker's face as he wore a balaclava-type cap (commonly known as a "mountain passer"). ).

For ages, a staple mantra of McCann-accusers has been that Madeleine's disappearance was one-off and unique and offenders of Brueckner's type are serial offenders.

That all looks decidedly sick, now.

Checks were made in a bid to determine where the suspect in the Donegal case was when three-year-old Maddie went missing in the resort of Praia da Luz in Portugal on May 3, 2003.

But someone at uk Justice did download the article and I copy and pasted from that:

EXCLUSIVE: Explosive fingerprint clue as Madeleine McCann suspect faces three new charges
23 Dec, 2021 @ 10:00
THE prime suspect in the case of missing Madeleine McCann will be charged with three separate s-e-x crimes in February.

Christian Brueckner will face ‘up to nine years’ in prison for the violent rape of an Irish girl in Portugal in 2004.

He will also face a number of years each for the sexual assault of five young children in 2007 and 2017.

Both attacks were close to Praia da Luz, where British toddler Madeleine McCann vanished during a family holiday in May 2007 just before her fourth birthday.

The Olive Press can reveal that prosecutors in Germany have built up an ‘extremely strong case’ against the German, 45, in all three cases.


The strongest is hinged around his fingerprints being left in the apartment of the rape victim, Hazel Behan, it has emerged.

Prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters will accuse Brueckner of waking the 20-year-old in the middle of the night while wearing a mask and holding a knife to her throat.

Behan’s assailant – who spoke English with a German accent – had climbed up to her first floor balcony and slid open her patio doors, which she had left slightly ajar.

According to a new TV documentary on German channel Sat.1, he had then picked up one of her kitchen knives to threaten her not to scream.


He then proceeded to set up a video camera to record how he violently attacked and then raped her, during an ordeal that lasted over an hour.

By amazing fortune, the programme will reveal, while he had attempted to clean up the scene he left a partial fingerprint on the knife.

“Initially German police believed all the evidence had been destroyed,” said an investigator working on the film Der Fall Maddie – auf der Spur des Taters (meaning The Maddie Case – on the trail of the culprit).

“But while most of it was thrown away by Portuguese police, luckily the main bits had been uploaded onto a computer, including half a fingerprint, which links to Brueckner.

“It makes it a very clear case and the prosecutors in Germany have known about this for some time, since 2017 in fact.

“Wolters is very sure about it and is set to proceed with the conviction now, and we are pretty certain it will be in February.”

The investigator added that while the Maddie case ‘will take a little longer to pull together’ Brueckner will be charged with two other crimes in February.

The first involves the sexual assault of a 10-year-old German girl on a beach, near Praia da Luz, one month before Madeleine went missing in the same resort.

In the sinister broad daylight attack, the girl’s naked assailant had first talked in English, then German, before groping her while playing with himself.

He had been forced to run away in clear sight of the girl’s parents, who noted his age, hair and height to police in a statement the following day.

Brueckner, then 30, fitted the description perfectly.

“There is a good basis for our suspicion,” Wolters told the Olive Press this summer.

“It has really helped that the German tourists have now formally recognised Brueckner,” the German TV source added.

In the second, most recent attack, the German pervert was arrested and extradited back to Germany after being caught exposing himself to four children in a playpark.

Brueckner will be charged with the late night offence, when he stripped off while sitting under a slide during a festival in Messines, in June 2017.

“It is fair to say that the evidence is rather better than other cases,” Wolters also told the Olive Press in June.

“I cannot say how long he will face, but it will be two, four or six years. And it will be higher because it is not his first offence.”

Brueckner is currently serving a seven-year sentence for the rape of an American woman, Diana Menkes, who was 72 at the time of the attack in Praia da Luz, in 2005.


Menkes, who passed away earlier this year, also faced a nearly two-hour ordeal that was filmed by Brueckner using a camera and a tripod.

Brave Menkes recognised her assailant and testified against him from America two years before her death. Police found one of his hairs in the beachside apartment close to where he lived.

He used a similar modus operandi in the attack on Behan, who also recognised the German and insisted police reopened the case last year.

Olive Press editor Jon Clarke revealed in his book My Search for Madeleine, published this summer, that friends of Brueckner had found a series of sinister videos at his former home in Praia da Luz.

Four friends spoke out about ‘up to 20’ rape videos, in which Brueckner sometimes appeared.

They had found the hoard in the so-called ‘yellow house’ where he lived overlooking Praia da Luz for seven years.

Police in Germany also unearthed a stash of tens of thousands of films and photos involving child pornography, animal s-e-x and rape.

Brueckner had hidden the collection of memory sticks and other devices under the dead body of his buried dog in a derelict box factory, in Former East Germany.

The former orphan, who has a long crime record, has been twice convicted of child s-e-x abuse offences, involving at least four children, in Germany.

German police made him the prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case in June last year, in particular looking for information about two phone numbers and two vehicles.

In a dramatic appeal they announced that his phone had been used in a 30-minute call near the Ocean Club just hours before the toddler went missing.

The German TV documentary set to air in February will give much more detail on the week in question and reveal ‘substantial’ new information.

As well as talking in detail to the police and prosecution, they have had ‘considerable’ communication with both Brueckner and his lawyer.

“It looks extremely likely that Brueckner took Madeleine, but I don’t think he did it alone,” added the investigator. “It is going to be an explosive programme.”

Perfect criminal?How Brueckner escaped the PJ


The phone number of the German, now suspected of Maddie's disappearance, was on the list of 74,000 numbers given to the PJ by the operators.But it was ignored.For many reasons.

21 jun 2020, 15:0338
The cell phone number Christian Brueckner used when Maddie disappeared was one of the 74,000 records provided to the Judiciary Police by the operators at the time, TMN, Optimus and Vodafone, as being active on the antennas serving Praia da Luz, in the Algarve, between May 2 and 4, 2007. However, and despite the fact that the PJ tried to select the longest duration calls in the period before the disappearance of the English child, the phone call received by the German passed by the investigation because it was not made within the time interval established by the inspectors.This evidence was only recovered in 2017, ten years after the case, when the German police contacted the Portuguese, realizing that this man could be a suspect in the crime and what number he was using at the time.



(00351) 912 730 680 received a call between 19:32 and 20:02 on that day 3 May 2007 from another Portuguese number, (00351) 916 510 683. He activated the antennas that serve the area where the McCann couple was on vacation with the two younger twins and Madeleine, who was almost four years old and, with a duration of 30 minutes, would attract some interest to investigators.

However, having in their hands thousands of other numbers that had to be investigated, the PJ inspectors — at the time led by the coordinator Gonçalo Amaral — had to define selection criteria for the investigation.First, they started by analyzing the three-day calls made by the McCann couple and their friends.And also Robert Murat — one of the first suspects and defendants in the case, after his overly helpful behavior with the authorities and the media raised suspicions to a journalist — and his inner circle.They then decided to extend that time period for all of them.

In addition to these calls, the PJ also decided that one of the ways to select the thousands of telephone records would be made according to the “time/duration/frequency/direction” of each one, focusing attention on what it called the “critical period” , between 20:00 and 22:00, that is, until the moment when the crime will have happened, as shown in the report in the process.And that was how he let slip the call to Brueckner, which ended precisely at 8:02 pm that day, two minutes past the threshold established by the investigation.



According to this report, however, there was another record considered important for the PJ: a number from an unknown user — similar to the number used by Brueckner, a prepaid card that was deactivated shortly afterwards.This contact activated the antennas between 9:39 pm and 9:15 pm, with five communications with a number that turned out to be a real estate agency.He also received two calls from an Irish operator shortly before 10 pm — the time at which a group of witnesses said they saw a man leaving the enterprise with a child in his arms (which led to the creation of the famous robot portrait of a male child. .70 m (about 30 years old, which in the field of hypotheses fits almost all suspects, even Maddie's father).

The PJ's attention was tied to these two numbers, which ended up extending the period of time previously defined for the analysis to a later date.But only for these numbers.The call that Brueckner would have received remained in the records, but it was not even analyzed, like thousands of others.



Suspect had help from another?
In addition to the family who saw a man with a child in his arms, at 10:00 pm, a friend of the McCann couple also gave an identical report to the PJ, although she assured that she saw him at 9:15 pm — about 45 minutes before the other witnesses and in an opposite location.These two pieces of information led the PJ to suspect that, given the discrepancy in the time and location of the two witnesses, they could be facing two different suspects who helped each other.

This led inspectors to create yet another criterion for analyzing telephone records: all calls whose sender and receiver activated the antenna at the same time.Brueckner's call, now I suspect, would also escape this criterion, since the number that called him activated an antenna outside Praia da Luz.

To analyze the more than 70 thousand calls, the PJ decided to select telephone records according to the "time/duration/frequency/direction" of each one, focusing attention on what it called the "critical period", between 8 pm and 10 pm in the May 3.
The numbers of the telephone booths, reception of the development, and its owner were also investigated.But, according to the conclusions of the police, nothing was found."These data only served, like the remaining 74 thousand records of the operators, to eliminate possible suspects", the report reads.Suspects that, apparently, already existed in the case.

The two lines of inquiry that set Brueckner apart
As an inspector from the PJ who worked on the case reminded the Observer, shortly after Maddie's disappearance, two lines of investigation were defined: the child had either been kidnapped or killed at home.

In the first hypothesis, that of abduction, the PJ concluded that the McCanns' routine had not changed much during the holidays.During the day the children were usually taken with nannies, so that the couple could do various activities (the main one being playing tennis with friends).At night, the couple bathed the children, fed them, laid them down and stayed with them until they fell asleep and then went to dinner at a restaurant near the apartment where they were staying, within the complex, the Tapas Bar — but where not it was possible to see the house with the naked eye.So they and their friends took turns going to see the children every half hour.On the day of the disappearance, between 9 pm (when Gerry went to the apartment) and 10 pm (when it was Kate), the British girl will have disappeared.The friend who made the 9.30 pm visit only listened at the door and window, but did not go inside.The children were silent, so he concluded that they were sleeping and everything was fine.

In August of that year of 2007, the PJ had the collaboration of a retired policeman from England who brought two dogs: one detected the odor of blood, the other a dead body.Its results led the McCanns to be appointed defendants.
This routine, fed by witnesses heard by the PJ who realized they had seen someone hanging around the apartment days before the disappearance, reinforced the hypothesis that Maddie had been kidnapped.A suspect was quickly found: Murat, whose house he lived in, his mother's, was searched by investigators, who even excavated in the garden.The mother always insisted that the son had not even left the house on the night of the alleged crime.Even so, Murat was constituted a defendant.

The homicide thesis and the hundreds of traces that came to nothing
In August of that year, 2007, the thesis of death began to gain strength.The PJ had the collaboration of a retired policeman from England.He presented himself as a professional with 35 years of experience, some of which was with the South Yorkshire Police, where he had worked as a senior dog trainer.Martin Grime arrived at the village of Luz with two animals: Eddie, trained to detect dead bodies, and Keela, a specialist in finding human blood.Eddie marked an area by the window of the Ocean's Club apartment, which was found open the night of the disappearance.He also marked a zone in the McCanns' car, rented almost a month after their eldest daughter disappeared.Keela marked yet another area inside the apartment.



The PJ lifted the tiles in the area that Keela marked as having traces of blood and sent the window curtain and part of a plastic from the car for analysis, where Eddie detected a dead body odor.Hundreds of traces were also sent, such as hair found, and oral swabs from Maddie's family and friends, as well as employees, in order to be able to select who was and was not a suspect.

Everything seemed to point to a murder, possibly accidental, inside the house.At this point, the McCanns were also under surveillance, until the beginning of September they ended up being accused.The process then had three defendants: Murat, in the abduction thesis, and the McCanns in the thesis of the murder of their own daughter.

While these lines of inquiry were pursued, all others fell to the ground.If before the PJ came to question an English citizen, who a month before Maddie's disappearance had lived in the car and who was seen several times in the vicinity of the Ocean's Club, the thesis that someone from outside could be involved in the abduction or in the crime quickly lost steam.

"These data only served, like the remaining 74 thousand records of the operators, to eliminate possible suspects".
PJ Report
“It was never understood very well.Other lines of investigation were abandoned, such as that someone had been prowling the apartment days before.And all of a sudden, without any traces of evidence, they are constituted as defendants”, a source who participated in the investigation stated to the Observer and who pointed out to him some flaws.

The material collected on site was sent to the Genetics and Forensic Biology Service of the National Institute of Forensic Medicine.It was here that, in two different phases, 25 samples and 447 traces arrived, a piece of Maddie's bed quilt, two parts of the Renault Scénic and 444 hairs.Much of the material was contaminated because the area was not properly protected and among the analyzed hairs there was even dog hair.A crime scene was not guarded as it is now.

In 2017, when the German police contacted the Portuguese Judiciary Police to confirm that Brueckner's number was in the process as active at the time of the disappearance, the PJ ended up locating the call.
The investigation coordinator fired and the evidence that remains
A month after the McCann couple was made a defendant, the coordinator of the investigation was dismissed from his post, after publicly saying that the British police were only following clues provided by the McCann couple.Months later, Gonçalo Amaral would end up submitting his own PJ's resignation, at just 48 years of age, announcing that he would write a book about the case — which resulted in another legal battle brought by the McCanns, and which they won.

Two months before this announcement, in February, and while the collected material was being analyzed, a team of independent researchers from Lisbon headed to the Algarve and took the process to see what had been done to date.The list of thousands of numbers containing Brueckner's contact details was re-analyzed.But the inspectors adopted a strategy that would turn out to be equally beneficial to the one who is now the main suspect in the case: they cross-referenced all the messages and phone calls with the witnesses from the process to see if there were any contradictions or loose ends that could unravel the mystery. that still endures today.

▲Gonçalo Amaral wrote the book "A Verdade da Mentira" which was the target of a lawsuit by the McCanns



In the end, the recommendations of this team were: in the case of murder, wait for the results of the traces sent to England, as well as understand the reliability of the results obtained through the dogs of the English trainer;on the other hand, in the case of abduction, they proposed, in the absence of evidence, to wait for new elements that could reach the process and that could open other lines of investigation.

The laboratory results both in Portugal and in England would arrive shortly afterwards to show that the biological traces collected in the car could be as much from Maddie as from her brothers.In Portugal, after analyzing all the evidence, there was only one left, which may now be crucial to understand whether Brueckner was in the Ocean's Club apartment.The one that didn't match the date at all: a saliva stain found on Maddie's bedspread.



Process ended up filed and no suspects
The case would end up being filed, without any charges against Murat or the McCanns.In 2013, however, a new suspicion would cause the case to be reopened.At the time, British and Portuguese researchers collaborated, there were even new searches in England.But the suspicions ended up bumping into a wall.“There have been more silent lines of investigation” since then, a PJ source admitted to the Observer.The same source recalls that all of them were investigated and that none of them bore fruit.Furthermore, after Gonçalo Amaral, many other investigators were involved in the case, and they never managed to solve the mystery of Maddie's disappearance.

In 2017, when the German police contacted the Portuguese Judiciary Police to confirm whether the number of Brueckner, who lived in the Praia da Luz area at the time, was in the process as active at the time of the disappearance, the PJ ended up locating the call.As well as the number that called you.Problem: both numbers were prepaid and in 2010 they changed hands.But there were images of the car and motorhome used by him, which could serve as a reference for anyone who knew him and could help the police.


The van that the now suspect German was using at the time of the disappearance

Two years after this sharing of information, the German police suggested that the Portuguese and the English do what is done in the so-called “cold cases”, that is, in the archived cases that have been unresolved for years: ask the public for help.The habit is uncommon in Portugal but, as the Observer found out, the PJ ended up choosing to join the plan, because it knew that the Germans would come forward with statements in the media anyway.Two conditions were put in place: Maddie's parents would be notified by the British police first and the suspect's name would not be released.

In less than 24 hours, however, Brueckner's name was released in the German press."This is one more possibility that has to be followed, but if the German authorities continue to say what they say, this investigation could be a flop", the same source from the PJ tells the Observer, who guarantees that there is more evidence besides the calls and cars.And that the suspect's own personality is compatible with Maddie's abduction and probable murder.

“There are several signs that point in that direction and it's not just the fact that he raped an elderly woman.There are more signs that could strengthen or fade away”, said the PJ source, who believes that Brueckner is more than a mere possibility and that it is the new line of investigation.

So far the German Public Ministry has shown that it is convinced that Maddie is dead, but without showing any proof.And following the same logic he used, that of looking for other crimes that the suspect may have committed in the places where he lived, other countries have started to reopen unresolved cases that may eventually be linked to him.In Portugal, the case of the disappearance of an English boy in Aljezur and the sexual attack on a woman, who has only just complained, have already been discarded from her role of crimes.But in Belgium and Germany there are still investigations into the murders and abductions of children in which he may be involved.

After 13 years of mystery, can we finally find out what happened to Maddie and how the suspect always managed to escape?Or will this be an unsolved crime?
