Madeleine McCann suspect to be treated to horrific murder movie at film festival in jail.
Madeleine McCann suspect is set to be treated to a movie which has been compared to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre at a film festival in jail. Suspect Christian B, aged 44, will be watching the film along with members of the public, who are even paying for the experience.
Paedophile Christian B is currently serving a seven-year sentence after the rape of an elderly woman in 2005 in Praia da Luz, Portugal. This is the area where Madeleine disappeared from only two years later. He serving time at Oldenburg prison, which has been nicknamed Germany’s Alcatraz.
The festival is set to take place in two weeks as the prison hosts the Oldenburg Festival. The festival will show the film Maestro, which has been compared to the Texas chainsaw massacre.
One source spoke about the film festival and said: “This is sick. It’s disturbing to think anyone would think this is a good idea. To think the man suspected of murdering Madeleine McCann is able to sit down and watch a horror film is chilling.”
The unique festival aims to allow members of the public to see what prison life is like, according to a spokesperson for festival who said: “The concept is not only to offer inmates a unique cultural experience but also to offer the general public a glimpse into the daily routines of prison life while sharing the common language of film.”
Christian B was previously held at the Wolfenbuttel jail, before being transferred to Oldenburg.
