McCanns Buried It

McCanns Buried It...

The vital information that could have found Madeleine...

So McCanns deliberately and callously held back from the Portuguese Police and the Leicestershire Police in the UK, vital information in the form of E.Fits which could have without question, helped to discover what had become of their missing daughter Madeleine, information which could have re-opened the case 5 years ago!

It was their own private detectives who presented them with a report wherein concerns were raised with regards the inconsistencies and anomalies in not only their holiday companion Jane Tanner's sighting, her statements to police but also those given to police by the McCanns and the other members of their holiday group.

The McCanns, their Fund Directors, chose to hide this information in their files, never to see the light of day until recently, when the Metropolitan Police sought to have a copy of this report by the Private Detectives.

Quite obviously the McCanns had not willingly handed over this material to the Metropolitan Police.

The report delivered to the McCanns in November 2008 by their own private detectives recommended that the revised timeline should be the basis for future investigations and that the Smith E.Fits should be released without delay.

A spokesperson for the McCann Find Madeleine Fund or a 'source' if you'd rather, stated: 

'The Fund wanted to
 continue to pursue information about the man seen by Tanner, and it would have been too expensive to investigate both sightings in full - so the Smith E.Fits were not publicised.'

The Fund spokesperson/source continued:

'The report was hypercritical of the people just wouldn't be conducive to the investigation to have that report publicly declared because...the newspapers would have been all over it.   And it would have been completely distracting.'  

So the report which advised that the E.Fits should be publicised without delay was ignored by the Fund.


They were clearly not happy that the report was hypercritical of the McCanns, their companions, that the stories and statements they had given police were in fact full of holes, inconsistencies. So they buried it.

This is exactly what the Portuguese Investigation also discovered.  And there is not a shred of doubt in my mind that Andy Redwood and the Metropolitan Police, like all other bodies discovered this too.  How could they not have?

So who exactly was the 'Fund' in November 2008, that is, who exactly made up the Board of Directors, those who would have made the decision to
BURY VITAL INFORMATION that could have helped find Madeleine, bring her home?

Esther McVey, Kate McCanns friend announced her departure from her post on the Board of Directors in January 2008.

The Madeleine Fund, No Stone Unturned Accounts Year Ended March 2009 show the following persons to have been on the Board of Directors in November 2008.  

A reminder at this point that it was November 2008 that the McCanns their Fund Directors were presented with the report, the damning report, with the E. Fits from their private detectives.

Madeleine Fund Directors November 2008

JA Corner (Friend of McCanns)
MJ Linnett (Retired account- friend of McCanns?)
E.G. Smethurst (solicitor)
D. Skehan (Colleague Gerry McCann)
John McCann (Gerry McCanns brother)
Brian Kennedy (Kate McCanns uncle)
PJB Hubner (Colleague of Gerry McCann?)
Kate McCann (appointed 12th November 2008)
Gerry McCann (appointed 12th November 2008)

So one big happy family together, brothers, uncles, buddies, colleagues, who all got together with Kate and Gerry McCann, Madeleine's parents and decided (as the Fund un-named spokesperson/source told the Sunday Times) to NOT ISSUE the E.Fits to help find Madeleine, against the advice of their private detectives.  

So while they were counting the monies donated to help find Madeleine - unknown to those very generous members of the public who so kindly gave to this Fund, the aforementioned Board of Directors were making plans - not to find the child - but to bury the E.Fits.

And bury them they did for FIVE YEARS.

It must be further noted, and from the Sunday Times article:

'The detailed images of the face of the man seen by the Smith family were never released by the McCanns!

But an artist's impression of the man seen earlier by Tanner was widely promoted, even though the face had to be left blank because she had only seen him fleetingly and from a distance.

Various other images of lone men spotted hanging around the resort at other times were also released.

Nor were the Smith E.Fits included in Kate McCanns 2011 book 'Madeleine' which contained a whole section on eight 'key sightings' and identified those of the Smiths and Tanner as most crucial.

Description of all seven other sightings were accompanied by an E. Fit or artist's impression.

The Smiths were the only exception.'

So why was the evidence kept under lock and key?'


There is not a valid reason in the world which can account for the McCanns hiding crucial information.

It is pretty sickening stuff to hear!

Why would her parents and the others on the Board of Directors made this decision.

It would have cost them nothing to include the E.Fits in the documentary, their Website, Kate McCanns book, or to simply sit and hold up the E.Fit when doing televised interviews.

When sitting giggling with Lorraine Kelly on her sofa - they could have held up the E.Fits - what would that have cost?  Nothing!

When on the Oprah Winfrey Show the audience numbers for that the ideal time to flash their E.Fit around the world - let's face it they were at that time showing the age progression pictures of Madeleine - why not the E.Fits?

I don't think there can be anyone left now with any doubt as to the answer to that one!
