Madeleine McCann: German prisoner identified as suspect

Source: BBC News

A 43-year-old German prisoner who travelled around Portugal in a camper van is now the focus of Scotland Yard's investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Police believe he was in the area where the three-year-old was last seen in May 2007.

They are appealing for information about the van and the suspect's other vehicle, a Jaguar.

The man transferred it to someone else's name the day after she vanished.

Reports are that Germany will name the man this evening.

4. I'll bet that number he called after the kidnapping was for trafficking.

This guy is a slimebag, and he didn't come by that Jaguar by clipping coupons.

5. I saw that documentary about her. The parents were much further away than i I had thought.

Really in another area down the street.

They took turns checking on her every so often and the last time one of their dining friends said he would check on her while he checked on his own kids. I can't recall if he found her missing then or not til her parents went home.

They were criticized at the time for leaving her alone but it seems that its something parents in their social circle did at the time.

8. This happens so often

Police look at "hundreds" of people in connection with a crime and release them as suspects only to realize the perpetrator was one of the people they looked at. This happened with Paul Bernardo, who they almost caught in connection with serial rapes, but after being released he progressed to torture-murder.

Police said the suspect was one of 600 people that detectives on the inquiry, known as Operation Grange, originally looked at, though he had not been a suspect.
