Former police chief John Stalker believes the McCanns are hiding a secret

The former Deputy Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police told the Sunday Express:

My gut instinct is that some big secret is probably being covered up.

I have watched the investigation into the Madeleine McCann case drag out for six months.

One thing above all worries me: Why have the McCanns and the seven other members of their group ? the Tapas Nine ? remained so silent?

Unlike other high-profile cases I have worked on, not one of them has been prepared to break ranks or really come out and support each other.

After all this time and pressure, I cannot believe that nobody wants to speak.

I have a real suspicion that we are not being told the whole truth. There is something else there, some issue that members of the party are embarrassed about?
