Criminal Profiling Topic of the Day: McCann Detective 100 Percent Full of It

The McCanns either are the most naïve people on the face of the earth or they are playing a very expensive and wasteful publicity game with the donations from kind folks who only want to help a little child be found.

Those Spanish investigators, The Metodo 3 agency, are crooks, plain and simple. They are milking this case for the money it is bringing in. They have a six month contract and stated that they would surely find her within five months (not one month - as that would end the cash flow all too quickly). Francisco Marco, who heads the team of Spanish private detectives: “We’re 100 per cent sure she is alive. We are very close to finding the kidnapper.”

What a lying scumbag! First of all, the only way, Mr. Marco, you can be 100 per cent sure Madeleine is alive is if you have her locked up in the basement of your house and you fed her this morning. This would mean you are a kidnapper and a pedophile. Is this what you are claiming, Mr. Marco?

If not, you are a despicable, money grubbing creep of another sort. If the McCanns came to a decent private investigator for an investigation, he would tell them right up front the chance of finding their daughter alive are near zero. He would tell them that should a local pedophile have snatched Maddie, she would have been killed within hours. If a pedophile ring had snatched Maddie, she would have been dead as soon as you started you campaign with her eye anomaly being broadcast to the world. He would tell them that if he started searching for a hidden Madeleine and broadcast his every move as to where he thought she was, then Maddie would surely be dead by the time he reached the location to retrieve her. He would tell the McCanns that the most he could do is review the police investigation to make sure they hadn’t missed anything and follow up on truly rational leads that had been ignored and overlooked. He would tell them he might be able to find out what happened to Madeleine and help bring the guilty party to justice, but the chances of bringing Madeleine home alive were extremely unlikely.

So, why have the McCanns hired this fraud? Are they being conned by Mr. Marco or are they using Mr. Marco to con us? Is it all for show and distraction or are the McCanns really innocent of hurting their child and are so desperate they will fall for the worst excuse for a private detective agency I have run across in a long time?

Gerry and Kate, fire them if you want to be responsible adults. Stop using the public’s money for your charades, either to impress us with your sincerity as to not knowing what happened to Maddie, or to fool yourselves into believing she is alive if you are being sincere. At least pay for this idiot with your own money, if you want to play this silly game.

"Are they being conned by Mr. Marco or are they using Mr. Marco to con us?"

--------------------------

I would go with option 2 here. They are using Marco to con us. These are not two ignorant people. They are well educated doctors with the backing of the British government and the UKs highest paid lawyers. They can't all possibly be stupid. NO WAY. At least several members of team McC has to have some brain cells.
They know exactly the type of firm this Marco operates. It wouldn't surprise me that they contacted several private investagators previously, only to be told exactly what you have stated. They struck lucky finding this crook. he would tell the public exactly what the McCs wanted them to hear.
In saying all that, and looking at this whole case, I will go back on what I said. It is quite obvious that the McCanns and their backers havn't got a brain cell between them, either that or they are setting the McCs up.

If I could ignore other concerning issues about the McCanns, I would say they could simply be desperate people. I have seen families of victims be ripped off of tens of thousands of dollar by some PI who is "investigating all leads." I have seen families buy into psychics' bullcrap, and I have seen families refuse to accept incredibly clear evidence about their loved one and instead continuing to fight for the answer they want to believe.

This could be true for the McCanns. However, I tend to agree with you that the later explanation is the more likely. There are too many red flags in this case for me to comfotably believe that Maddie was abducted by a pedophile or a pedophile ring.

There is no reputable PI that the McCanns could hire so they went with Marco who will do and say anything he's ordered to do. I believe the Mc's know exactly what happened to Madeleine. Dead or alive, they know.

McCann's trying to con us again...

I am SO frustrated with this case.

Pat, please tell us, do you think the McCann's will EVER be brought to justice? Can you please post about this?

option 2 no doubt about it

I have the greatest of faith they won't go unpunished. Hopefully in Portugal

This is what I believed happened. Something like this.

Gerry McCann to Private Investigator: It is important that the public believe that Madeleine is still alive. It is vital that they keep looking for Madeleine. Anyone of these sightings could lead us to Madeleine. So I feel it is important you help to give the impression she is alive.

PI: You mean we should tell the media we think it is very likely she is alive.

Gerry McCann: Exactly. But maybe the phrase 100% certain would be stronger. We need to counteract all this talk that she is dead in a succinct soundbite.

PI: Very well Mr McCann, we will say that. Now, about this witness who claims Murat's girlfriend had Madeleine....

Gerry McCann to Kate (later that night) Kate, they have agreed to announce that they are 100% certain Madeleine is alive. As long as people believe that, they cannot believe we killed her.

Ireland Here said...

More than likely you are right anon @ 3.40.
Also, if people believe she is dead, then that would be the end of the donations to the fund. They couldn't possibly keep collecting money to find Madeleine if she is dead. Mind you, nothing would surprise me with this pair.

Oh, here we go. Pat Brown is talking about a case when she hasn't done her homework.

Why don't you stop wasting our time with your crap!

Metodo-3 are being paid for by Brian Kennedy; not the fund! So please stop spewing your hatred. You are biased and don't give a crap about Madeleine.

I'm sure you will not put up my comment, because you only allow like-minded people as you to continue the hatred and lies.

GERRY AND KATE MCCANN DID NOT KILL THEIR DAUGHTER!!!!

Diego A.A. said...

Regarding what the business matter, Anonymous : it is the same (or worst) if the funds are directly 'invested' on No Stone Unturned Limited, or indirectly by supporters? Why to lose time and pay more taxes?

Directly Brian Kennedy pay the sui generis cops. And?

It is not necessary to abuse of the gramatical punctuation (!!!, or CAPS), Sir, I understand your thinking. A lot of us are just supporting the truth.

Anonymous said...

Anon at 5.31.

You say they did not kill their daughter. What evidence do you have (apart from the old not guilty until proven innocent mantra, that can apply to any murderers before they are convicted). You have made a claim presented as a fact in upper case letters. Now substantiate that claim.

You also appear to defend the cowboy outfit dressed up as private investigators. Now please explain on what basis they can claim they are 100% certain Madeleine is alive? Unless at Pat suggests, they are the ones holding her?

I won't hold my breath waiting for your reply.

Anonymous said...

LMAO! What a bunch of pathetic, arm-chair detectives you all are. And I do believe in innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. I agree with the person above about Pat Brown not knowing this case. How can someone say they can evaluate a case, when they don't even have all of the facts?

I will not judge this family like this. How do any of you know they aren't telling the truth? Is it solely based on media reports that you are basing your argument? If so, I'm sad those of you that are so enlightened are so apt to believe newspaper articles and decide on someone's innocence based off the newspapers.

You should all pray you are never in this situation because you can be assured people like you will judge you and you will wish you had compassionate, non-judging people on your side.

Many of you make me wonder about our society. When did it become acceptable to judge someone's guilt on what we read in the papers? Very scary society we live in.

And Pat Brown contributes to this by "profiling" cases when she doesn't have all of the facts.

Ireland Here said...

You don't have the facts either sowho are you to say they are innocent.

You said... "You should all pray you are never in this situation because you can be assured people like you will judge you and you will wish you had compassionate, non-judging people on your side."
--------------

I don't need to pray for this. I KNOW I will never be in this position. I KNOW. I would never leave or have my children in a situation where harm could come to them. I am what you would call a Mother. It is my job to protect my children. I would never neglect my children, I would NEVER Leave them wide open to all the dangers of the world, all alone and frightened. NEVER. I will never be in the position the McCanns are in.

7.49, You completely overlook that the behaviour of criminals may give clues about their personalities, their motives, their mental state or may reveal clues that indicate they are lying. You don't need the "full facts" to do this.

Many people have seen through the McCanns by observing their actions and questioning if that fits a position of innocence or guilt. Clearly to put Madeleine in danger if she was genuinely believed to be alive by tipping off abductors is not how any other parents of missing children would behave and fits the scenario that they were involved and are acting out a charade.

I have no connection with Pat Brown, but her approach is to be open minded and to examine what the suspects say and do. That is an established police method.

Anonymous, I hate to tell you this, but even the police do not have all the facts. They have only what information they have been able to retrieve - some of which might be misleading. The police are doing exactly what I am doing and what many others are doing; theorizing based on the totality of the information one has at hand. This is why it is called a theory.

The police may have more than one theory or they may change their theories as more facts come in. They will not charge anyone, however, until they have enough information to prove that a crime has been committed and who the person is that has committed that crime.

While by law, no once can be considered guilty without a jury or judge handing down that decision, the lack of such a finding does not mean the person is innocent of committing the crime. He can just not be held legally responsible without going through the court system.

I do not know if the McCanns are guilty of harming Madeleine, obstruction of justice, or fraud. I can say they are guilty of child neglect, although not legally guilty of child neglect.

I do hope I never find myself in such a horrific situation as the McCanns. But, let's say due to some selfishness or ignorance on my part, I end up in such straights, I can promise you this. Full cooperation with the authorities, submission to a polygraph, proper use of donations, and behaviors not so far out of the human norm that I make people raise their eyebrows at my actions.

The McCanns brought much of the negative reactions on themselves. Like Drew Peterson who says the press is responsible for his bad situation, the McCanns, like Peterson, court the press and like being in the limelight. If one is going to do that, one must expect to be scrutinized. I know this to be true, as I get my share of hate mail because of my outspoken manner. Anytime I get tired of it, I can stop doing commentary and retire to private life. I have known many families of victims who run campaigns to find their loved ones or the murderer of their loved ones and they don't have any bad publicity at all. Maybe it is because we find them sincere and innocent of manipulation and deceit.

Suppose, just for the sake of argument, that there is an abductor keeping the child in his/her clutches. When one publicizes the purported whereabouts of that abductor and child, there are two scenarios: one is right, which means that the child is whisked away from the location (or killed), or one is wrong, the abductor knows it and nothing much happens (including nothing positive). Announcing that the car's plate number is known would mean - if the car was used by the abductor - that the car as well as the location are abandoned, an alibi is concocted for the plate (unless it was a changed plate to begin with), again, the child would either be killed or, if the abductor is for some very special reason attached to her, relocated. If the car was not used by the abductor - well, what happens is what happened in Bosnia.
BUT, the riskiest scenario of all is announcing that one is "closing in one the abductor". Since no specifics are given, the abductor - always assuming he/she exists - does not know for sure that it is a false alarm,. nor does not know how much the detectives might know about him/her The likelihood of his (her) panicking and killing the child is absolutely the greatest, indeed almost 100%.
Now, this last statement was exactly the one made by Metodo, who cannot act without their client's consent. So the act was carried out that almost guarantees the killing of the child.
Now, further assuming that team McCann has the minimum of thiking ability (and I see no reason why we should deny them this), they either knowingly took the step that would lead to their child's certain death, or the whole thing is a hoax. For me the first assumption looks impossible (stupid and cruel beyond belief - why should one think so badly about the McCanns?). One is left with the hoax, deliberate fraud. But why should the McCanns resort to such fraud if they are not involved in Madeleine's disappearance? I can rack my brains all I want but I fail to come up with a reason. So one is left with the conclusion that they were indeed involved: hence the need for distraction tactics. If the reasoning above is correct, the fact that "we are closing in on the abductor" was publicized - and it is a FACT - actually does constitute evidence of the parents' involvement, so one can in no way say there is no evidence to refute the abduction theory. True, the defense would play on their assumed stupidity and the top-notch lawyers they have hired may win on this point, but to any normal thinking person the statement that there is no evidence of the parents' involvement (pronounced by several posters here, viz. an 5 31 and an 7 49) is simply false.

Bravo! Indeed! What kind of people wouldn't become enraged that the detectives they hired were such big publicity hounds that they would risking getting their daughter killed with their claims of being close to catching the kidnappers? People that know all the talk in the world isn't going to make a difference in their child's status.

You really need to get your facts right before you spew bile on a couple who have lost their child. The Spanish PIs are not being paid fron the fund , they are being paid by a millionaire benefactor on a 6 months contract.
How you call yourself an expert and expect us to take you seriously when you haven't checked the basics I don't know.

Criminal Profiler Pat Brown said...

Oh, sorry. Maybe the millionaire's money could be used to pay their bills instead of the donation money.

Anon Kate and Gerry mat not of killed her, i've foolwed this case from theminute she went missing, i have uncovered so much stuff that it cannot just be coincidence, if they havent killed her,they know EXACTLY where she is hidden, the stuff i have found and connected is surreal to say the least, they know EXACTLY where she is..... she will be back, just a matter of the right time to reintroduce her to the world, then we will see exactly what the McCanns and ALL their friends, may it be political or media friends are up to, this is the start of something big, totally orchestrated by the uk and usa government, god knows who else!
