“Mr Hill said that (...), there was no sign that anyone had forced their way in while the McCanns ate at the tapas restaurant 200 yards away.”
A curious phenomenon that happened at Praia da Luz had at its centre the manager of Ocean Resort, Mr. John Hill. All British Media printed and broadcasted his remarks, denying Kate McCann story about the broken and/or jammed shutter.
Mr. John Hill was clear and blunt and he was also - with no doubt – a reliable witness, as he was one of the first persons to come inside apartment A5, after Kate McCann realized Madeleine was not there and called her husband and friends.
But Mr. John Hill disappeared from the pages of British newspapers, in such a mysterious way as the child. He was quoted only on May 4 and May 5. After Mr. Alex Wollfall arrived at Ocean Resort, with his well-trained damaged control team operating in full steam, from his office n London, Mr. John Hill was erased from the Media (but this is just a coincidence, I’m sure...)
