New evidence against Christian Brueckner, investigators are now “100%” sure that the 44-year-old pedophile kidnapped, raped and killed Maddie McCann, the three-year-old English girl who disappeared in 2007 while on vacation with her family in Praia da Luz, in Portugal.
The man has already been the main suspect for a year, but now there is evidence. German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters told the Mirror: “Now we can charge him, we have evidence.”
Not immediately, the indictment of the 44-year-old, who is already in prison for other crimes, will probably arrive at Christmas: “When we still have questions, it is better to find the answers that could strengthen our position. That’s why we will continue to investigate ”.
Since the man is already in prison in Germany for raping a 72-year-old woman, also in Portugal and before Maddie’s disappearance, investigators take more time to gather as much evidence as possible.
The man was placed with certainty in the area when little Maddie disappeared, but investigators have no evidence that the child is dead. “There is circumstantial evidence, but not scientific. We have no body and no DNA ”, explains Wolters again.
The parents would like to find out what happened to their little Madeleine, but they don’t have much hope: “He doesn’t speak, we know that investigators have met him twice. But he doesn’t admit and doesn’t say anything ”.
