That's right. The newest target in UK detectives' quest to avoid the obvious is reportedly a woman. Authorities are looking for this mystery woman, who was reportedly in the area around the time Maddie vanished, for a "significant line of questioning." So what could this mean for the case as a whole? Probably nothing. This phantom female suspect is more than likely no different from every other so-called suspect that's been named-and-cleared over the past decade.
Meanwhile, two people remain completely suspicious in Madeleine McCann's disappearance: Her own parents. In my book, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, I highlight the mountain of evidence that has existed against Kate and Gerry McCann for the numerous years that Maddie has been missing. Such evidence includes cadaver dog findings, which have indicated that Madeleine died in the apartment where her parents left her unsupervised the night she vanished.
Are Kate and Gerry hiding something? All of the evidence says yes! But Scotland Yard detectives seem to have no concept of Occam's Razor. Millions in taxpayer money have been spent on this endless search for suspects, when there has never been any evidence of a break-in or abduction in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Will this latest red herring bring an end to at least part of this case? Again, I say it's highly unlikely.
