UK, German and Portuguese Police Say They Are Very Close to Snaring The Main Suspect in The Madeleine McCann Case.

Police officers from the UK, Portugal and Germany involved in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann say they are now far closer to snaring the main suspect in the child’s disappearance, convicted German paedophile Christian Brueckner.

German and Portuguese ­investigators are collaborating to carry out a series of fresh interviews with key witnesses in the Algarve who knew paedophile ­Christian Brueckner, according to sources.

Experts familiar with the case are describing it as “a very important step forward” and say it raises hopes that it could lead to Brueckner eventually being quizzed again and then charged with the crime. A second top-level summit between German, British and Portuguese detectives is also expected to take place in Lisbon this spring.

Prosecutors are banking that any clues from the new witnesses will give them what they need to directly question Brueckner about the case. He was named as the prime suspect last year but is yet to be quizzed about her 2007 disappearance.

      Not trying to throw shade, but if this crime had taken place in America, this monster would have been caught years ago. Obviously it was him. The man is a sadistic, psychopathic pedophile who literally has been profiled down to a T. You have all of the evidence, now all you have to do is stop giving him any “benefit of the doubt.” He’s clearly “smarter” and more manipulative than you all think, and all of the recently uncovered materials make that indubitably clear. I understand that this is one of the most researched cases in the world, and there are a lot of people holding out hope that she is alive: but that is literally the definition of denial. I feel horribly for the McCann family, but this needs to be put to rest. Obviously, finding her remains is the only missing “puzzle piece,” but enough is enough. From what I’ve read about his profile (literally everything,) he already admitted it: he most likely burned her remains and buried them, and that is seriously the only reason the British, German, and Portuguese police force haven’t uncovered them yet and closed this case.
