PR expert or crime expert?

Criminologist” Mark Williams-Thomas strikes again. And Martin Brunt, as always, helps him. Two comic figures. I wonder if Sky News viewers know that Mark Williams-Thomas is also the owner and managing-director of WT Associates, a company that offers, among many other services, media handling and advice for high profile cases and “design or review organisations media crisis policy”. Of course, all of this is very useful. There are already new sightings of Madeleine in Malta (?), new suspects and, probably, there will be new donations to the Fund. We saw it before...

My opinion? they are not crime expert.But what they do, is always to make us to laugh.Yes,I agree,they are very comics.

About donations: of course.After "opera" with so many tears,the money will be and will go to the
" unhappy" mccouple.

Boas,Paulo.Tudo de bom!Sempre.

"... publicly-available evidence leads him to believe the three-year-old arranged her toys on her bed and left through the unlocked patio door ..."

Mark Williams Thomas provides the emotional impact neccessary to ressurrect public interest for the McCanns. It's perhaps the most poignant and emotionally charged images you could ever have wished for. In all my years as a parent I've never known a fretful and bleary-eyed toddler stumble out of bed and arrange their toys before searching frantically for either my wife or myself. If she had woken up she would have been scared and unlikely to be composed enough to neatly arrange her teddies. The logic is irrelevant though as this little device serves a purely dramatic function (although it does provide an imaginative explanation for why the toys had been arranged on the bed in such a fashion by a ruthless assailant).

I suppose it's out of the question that the parents had arranged them that way after handing Madeleine over to a third-party or after cleaning up the scene of an accident with help from Ocean Club staff.

Also, what are the odds on an 'opportunist paedophile' being the only person in the area to notice an unaccompanied child in her bed-clothes wandering through a resort swarming with well meaning families on their holiday?

The odds must be even greater than those of for winning the lottery.

I think he forgot to add "her cadaver odour infused toy" when referring to Madeleine arranging her toys on the bed. That raises the question though of how Madeleine's toy came to smell like a cadaver. Hmmmmmmm.........!

Don't underestimate MWT. In a dictatorial regime it sometimes takes strange journalistic practices to get the truth out. With one stroke he shattered the upcoming "documentation" of the McCanns to bits. The part regarding the arrangement of her toys I see as crass satire. He is definately opposing the abduction-out-of-the-apartment theory of the McCanns.

but then... he might just be dumb...
