The German prosecutor has handed over to Madeleine McCann’s parents, who has “concrete evidence” that would confirm that the little girl who disappeared while on vacation in southern Portugal 13 years ago is dead, although the evidence has revealed nothing.
The investigation was reactivated after identifying a new suspect who was already detained in Germany. It would be Christian B., 43, a sex offender with multiple convictions, including one for child sexual abuse.
The district attorney of Braunschweig, Hans Christian Wolters, had already publicly recognized that all evidence indicated Madeleine’s death. Now she has also written to her parents, Kate and Gerry, to confirm that she has no doubt that she is dead without going into details.
Wolters has argued that speaking about the evidence could jeopardize the investigation, according to Sky News. According to The Daily Mail, the prosecutor has not shared the progress with the British and Portuguese police, who are also involved in the case.
The McCann family spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, has made it clear that they will not reveal any problems related to private communications without confirming whether he has already received the letter from the German prosecutor.
