Fifteen years after Madeleine McCann disappeared from her parents’ holiday resort hotel room in Portugal, prosecutors say they have solved the case.
Hans Christian Brückner, who the lead German prosecutor has been suspicious of since 2007 was formally named as a suspect last week. Brückner worked as a handyman at the Praia da Luz resort when Madeleine disappeared and is currently serving time for raping a 72-year-old American woman, and is under investigation for the rape and strangling death of a 13-year-old boy, and the disappearance of a 5-year-old girl reports Barbie Latza Nadeau.
German prosecutors confiscated a camper Brückner lived in, and various media reporters are saying that fibers from Madeleine’s pink pajamas may have matched evidence. “Is it true that you have found something of Madeleine McCann in Christian Brückner’s van?” the presenter asked. “I’m not going to comment on the details of the investigation,” he replied, reported Nadeau. The presenter then asked, “But you can’t deny it?” to which Wolters answered, “I don’t want to deny it”. Lawyers for Brückner said that’s “bullshit”.
The McCanns are instead preparing to celebrate what would be their daughter’s 19th birthday by putting a gift in her room, which has not been changed since she disappeared. They said through a spokesman they still hold hope their daughter is alive.
