Cruel online trolls who have maliciously insulted Madeleine McCann’s parents have been warned that their time has expired as a new prime suspect is named in the case.
Kate and Gerry McCann have been abused and ridiculed online for years since their three-year-old daughter disappeared.
The couple has been repeatedly attacked on social media by people who accused them of being involved in their disappearance from their vacation home 13 years ago.
They categorically denied any part of their daughter’s disappearance and asked the trolls to leave her alone. The mirror reports.
German prosecutors are now investigating a child sex predator on suspicion of Madeleine’s murder – and spokesman Clarence Mitchell said that anyone who berates their parents online should think about their own behavior.
He told Good Morning Britain: “Anyone who thinks Kate and Gerry were involved is categorically wrong.
“And if this turns out to be the responsible man and we find out Madeleine’s fate in time, many people on social media have to deal with themselves and their statements over the years for a long and thorough period.” “
In a major breakthrough in this case, German prosecutor Christian Hoppe confirmed yesterday that the suspect is a 43-year-old pedophile who has been convicted of sexual abuse against children and other sexual crimes.
Neither the German armed forces nor Scotland Yard have identified the suspect, who is reportedly serving a seven-year sentence for raping a 72-year-old American woman in Portugal in 2005.
It is known that he lived in the Algarve between 1995 and 2007. His Portuguese cell phone received a half-hour call to Praia da Luz about an hour before Madeleine’s disappearance.
Mr. Hoppe said the suspect lived regularly in the Algarve between 1995 and 2007, where he worked in the hospitality industry, among other things, but financed his lifestyle through crimes such as theft in hotel complexes and apartments, as well as drug trafficking.
Kate and Gerry McCann from Rothley, Leicestershire welcomed the recent call in a statement saying: “We will never give up hope of finding Madeleine alive, but whatever the result, we need to know how to make peace have to find. “
Mr. Mitchell, a spokesman for Madeleine’s family, said her parents thought the development was “potentially very significant” and he could not “remember a case where the police have been so specific about a person in the 13 years since their disappearance was “.
He told BBC Breakfast: “Of all the thousands of clues and potential suspects mentioned in the past, there has never been anything as explicit as that of not just one, but three police officers.”
