Dog sniffs are not evidence though. They are a statistical hit and miss. Hence why forensics goes in after them to retrieve something... or not. In this case there was nothing. So it's a miss. Pretty sure dog sniffs are not admissible in most court rooms without corresponding forensics.

Same dog got it wrong elsewhere.

Not quite so. Jerry was actively answering questions while Kate was under caution. All the answers to her questions are available.



There is a history of intruders going into rooms though. A burglar hoped out the apartment above's window for example. The lack of evidence is also lack of staging.



She screamed all the way back. What was she to do? Sit there and say nothing?

If they leave to go out, then they are abandoning the twins. If they stay, then they are not searching for Maddie.

Why wasn't anything staged? is the question I have.

as I said before the open/broken window is really all the staging they needed.

I agree. which is why they probably said at first that they were returning/entering the apartment to check through the locked front door. they didn't want to admit they left the kids alone in an unlocked apartment. when they realized that story wouldn't work, probably because one of the other parents had gone through the unlocked patio door, they changed their story back to the truth on this one.

correct. but they both still lawyered up, and why would he talk during the police interview and she wouldn't? maybe because she was the main perpetrator? either way, if your child is missing, and the police are trying to find, why would you refuse to answer any questions? because your guilty of wrongdoing that's why.

so what? as I mentioned theres always stories of other suspicious people and goings ons whenever these types of cases come up.

Quote:

Any innocent parents first reaction would be to protect the twin babies-scoop them up and get the hell out of there. or stay in the apartment and call for help.
Not run back out leaving her babies alone again in immanent danger.
Cmon.

many people think the open window was staged, as do I.

well theyre dumb enough to be responsible for their childs death or abduction so I'm with you there. but they were doctors so they must have a modicum of intelligence.

no I agree. the dog evidence is questionable. but look-theyre were two dogs, one blood one cadaver-they both alerted. And the main thing here is that there was also positive DNA to the places they alerted.

to me the chances are that they corroborate each other to some extant.

They didn't answer the questions formally because they layered up after they were told that Gonšalo Amaral figured they were involved. If you read anything about his book it becomes clear he wasn't in the business of helping them find an intruder and just based on his book alone, he is getting a lot wrong. Like the Tapas sighting, since confirmed by Operation Grange. They found the creche parent carrying the child. So the people he says concocted this story, didn't. It was real.

However they did answer all these questions in the media.

I don't buy the argument that there will always be suspicious people anywhere. This place had a lot of problems. It wasn't safe. Crime was rampant. People had gone into bedrooms, stalking in bushes, calling for fundraisers, some of these, never identified.

The McCann's apartment could be seen from their dining table at the Tapas Bar. The McCann's apartment was 77 meters away. That's not a long distance to raise help quickly. 9 people at that bar. 9 helpers instantly.

But why wouldn't you expect the families DNA to be there?

what a load of crap (not you-the mccanns)! anyone knows family members and or last one to see or be alone with a victim is going to be a de facto suspect by the police. and even if they are formally suspects, and or continue to be suspects, that's the last thing on your mind-you don't care if your a suspect. you didn't do it, your child is missing, you cooperate as much as you can with the police-to clear yourself and then help them HELP YOU find your child.
parents of missing children BEAT DOWN THE FREAKEN doors of the police to find out and help them find their child.
lawyering up, refusing to cooperate, not answering there questions-classic guilty behavior.
Innocent people don't do these things-guilty people do.

you do realize that this is what guilty people do-overwhelmingly-refuse to cooperate fully with police- but give media interviews. it a ploy to get there "story"out, public relations, garner public sympathy.

OK well just have to disagree on this one. but its a red herring. these types of stories ALWAYS come up.

Nope. this actually the final straw for me in theyre being guilty. I don't care if its the next apartment. no innocent parent would leave the twins their after discovering another child abducted. sorry your wrong on this one.

I would expect it there from contamination.

They had legal advisers telling them that if they talked and incriminated themselves the police could arrest them there and then and they would no longer be able to help maddie. They were told the investigators were not there to help them.

They got the right legal advice. They took the right legal advice. The evidence for this in the book put out by the detective investigating them. His whole book is almost entirely devoted to McCann guilt, based on evidence that has since been refuted by Operation Grange.

Also you are claiming she left them alone to be taken again. Yet how do you know she didn't close/lock the doors behind her for example?

The idea this was staged is exactly what is wrong with it when looking at the evidence. There is no evidence of staging, despite the criticism being that it was staged. They didn't make it look like a break in. Nothing. No window jimmied. No Tapas9 member going inside and saying... my gosh, someone has been in here. It isn't staged and that's the most confounding factor in the idea they staged her vanishing.
