McCann still looking for “creepy man”

A man very similar to the face shown in the sketch produced by the McCann private detectives was found, by Portuguese journalists, living in a small town near Praia da Luz. Polícia Judiciária has already dismissed the new “suspect” as a “diversion tactic at a crucial moment”, when the friends of the McCann are due to be submitted to a new questioning. Police sources told the Media that the man has been questioned three weeks after Madeleine vanished, following Gail Cooper initial statement to British police.

But Clarence Mitchell, the McCanns' spokesman told British Media that McCann private detectives “have not been informed that the man we are seeking has been ruled out. We have no reason to believe he has been ruled out and our search for the man in our image is very much continuing.” Mr. Clarence referred that the “suspect” now has dreadlocks, something Gail Cooper, the witness who saw him at Praia da Luz, two week before Madeleine vanished, didn’t noticed.

This detail – the fact that the man changed his appearance and now uses dreadlocks – was published in the Portuguese Press, before Mr. Clarence statements to the British Media. Other news today mention the decision from The Mirror to ban all discussions related to Madeleine McCann from the Mirror forums.

If you think that man is very similar to the sketch I think you should go check your eyes.

Supposedly Gail Cooper has said that the "suspect" was begging in the name of "Lucinda dos Santos orphanage", which C Mitchel is reported as saying does not exist (wonder if this was a result of Metodo 3's wonderful investigation skills. EUR 50,000 and they could not manage to go to the yellow pages and look it up? They would have found the social centre, close to Lagos). However, I must admit it is more convenient to say it does not exist...

What I would like to know is how easy do English speakers find it to say - and remember - "Lucinda dos Santos"??? Is it just me, or is it a little strange that 12 hours later, let alone 8 months after the fact, a British tourist would remember exactly the name of the orphanage in a foreign language she does not understand...

from "SOS,MADDIE":(mes excuses):
Décrit comme une "bête" et un "pédophile" par plusieurs tabloides britanniques, l’homme est connu de la Police Judiciaire (PJ) portugaise qui l’avait interrogé le 23 mai. Maintenant, après le témoignage d’une touriste britannique qui affirmait avoir reconnu l’homme du croquis, les inspecteurs de la PJ ont recontacté l’individu et confirmé ce que, pour eux, étais déjà un fait : il n’existe aucune connexion entre lui et l’affaire McCann.

La nouvelle est d’autant plus surprenante car, au mois de juin, dans une des rencontres entre les inspecteurs de la Police Judiciaire et les McCann, en présence du Consul britannique à Portimão, les parents de Madeleine avaient étés informés des démarches des autorités à propos du suspect : "tout n’est qu’une manœuvre de diversion. Soit des parents, soit de leur agence de détectives", affirme une source proche de l’enquête soulignant que "s’ils veulent continuer dans ce sens, il y a quelques dizaines, voire des centaines, de personnes qui ont été interrogés et qui peuvent voir demain leur visage sur un croquis à la télévision".

And you,readers from this blog,you must see the picture photo than the british put in first page with this article.

Gosh! I had a good laugh when I saw the picture of the man the sketch was supposed to portray! Someone managed to transform a fairly good-looking (in my personal female opinion) pig farmer into a "creepy" caricature. I wonder who is to be blamed: the not-so-skillful FBI artist, delirious Mrs. Gail Cooper, or manipulative Team McCann!

Actually Anonymous, it turns out that the artist wasn't an FBI one, but works fr FindMadeleine.

Is not a comment; is a copy and paste:

"Enfin, selon le DN, la PJ va à nouveau interroger un des responsables de l'Océan Club qui présente beaucoup de similitude physiques avec Robert Murat. Murat a toujours nié avoir été présent cette nuit là à l'Océan Club. Affirmation corroborée par sa mère mais démentie par plusieurs touristes, notamment Anglas, qui garantissent l'avoir vu à l'Océan Club le soir de la disparition de Madeleine.

The pigs farmer turns to be a conviceted child raper ;)

..and Gail Cooper in the Sun confirmed the pig farmer is NOT the man she has seen ;)

Mr and Mrs IdIot McCanns now say they don't think and NEVER did think Murat should have been a suspect...I wonder why they say that now....?

Perhaps he is going to sue them...I hope..

"A Spanish loner who admits he resembles a sketch of a "scruffy" suspect in the search for Madeleine McCann has denied any involvement in the case."

Almost nine months later, there are still British journalists who are not capable to distinguish between Portugal and Spain.

God only knows why they still demand that the borders between both countries should have been closed on the night of May 3, 2007. It's all the same, anyway - or so it seems.
