NEWS outlets were saved from the drudgery of a slow news day with the release of circumstantial evidence which probably won’t help find the missing Madeleine McCann.
The new information, which is as vague as possible, unveils a new possible suspect in the case. Detectives investigating the case are on the lookout for a ‘tanned, dark haired man’ in Portugal.
The editors of such upstanding publications as The Sun, The Mirror, and the Daily Mail collectively breathed a sigh of relief as they led with a sensationalised version of the story in place of another story of Kim Kardashian wearing clothes to go to lunch.
The 3 year old disappeared in May 2007, from her bed in an apartment in Praia da Luz, a resort in the Algarve region of Portugal. She was on holiday there from the UK with her parents, twin siblings and a group of family friends and their children. Her whereabouts remain unknown.
The hopeless investigation exacerbated by intense media coverage has already wrongly suspected British – Portuguese property consultant Robert Murat and Madeleine’s own parents Kate and Gerry McCann.
This is unlikely to be the last on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann as slow news days are a common occurrence and she is more than likely never going to be found.
