More McCann lies. A crock of locked V unlocked

Philomena McCann, Gerry's sister, said on 04 May: "Some people may ask why they left the children alone in the apartment but it was locked and they had a full view of the front door and they were checking every half hour."

Ok, so the apartment was locked then.

Jill Renwick, a family friend, told GMTV on 04 May: "She's obviously been taken as she couldn't have gone out on her own and the shutters had been forced open."

Still locked.

Jon Corner, a friend of the McCanns, and one of the many people who was told the lie of an "abductor" smashing the shutters, said:

"She (Kate) just blurted out that Madeleine had been abducted. She told me, 'They have broken the shutter on the window and taken my little girl.'

"They had left the apartment locked while they were having their meal, but when they went back the last time they saw the damage."

You guessed it, still locked.

It was these people, along with others, who were also told tales of "smashed", "jemmied" and "broken" shutters. Before we move on, let's have a look at some of the statements from people who the McCanns lied to, when they said there had been a break in:

Instead of searching for Madeleine, the McCanns were busy lying to all and sundry:

Brian Healy (Kate's father)

"Gerry told me when they went back the shutters to the room were broken, they were jemmied up and she was gone,"

Trish Cameron (Gerry's sister)

"The door was lying open, the window in the bedroom and the shutters had been jemmied open."

"She just blurted out that Madeleine had been abducted. She told me, 'They have broken the shutter on the window and taken my little girl.''

Philomena McCann (Gerry's big sister)

"The shutters were jemmied, the window opened"

Jill Renwick (Kate's friend)

"Madeleine has obviously been taken. She couldn't have gone out on her own and the shutters were forced."

"They were just watching the hotel room and going back every half-hour and the shutters had been broken open and they had gone into the room and taken Madeleine,"

Jon Corner (family friend)

"Kate said the shutters of the room were smashed."

"She just told me that Maddy (sic) had been abducted, that the shutters of the apartment had been forced and someone had taken her."

Daily Mail

"When Mrs McCann checked on the children, she found the apartment door wide open, the window shutters jemmied wide and her daughter's bed empty."So as things on the night of the 3rd, we have reports of a locked apartment, parents out, smashed shutters, and a missing child. 

^^^^That's an abduction right there^^^^

Only that isn't the truth is it. The truth is, there were no signs of a break in, despite the McCanns best efforts to convince the world otherwise, and the truth came out almost as quickly as it was hidden:

Daily Mail

"The parents, who were taken to the PJ in Portimão at around mid-morning, refused to speak to the journalists, but advanced the idea that the apartment had been broken into, to the British media. Nevertheless, the resort's administration and the GNR assert that "there were no signs of a break-in whatsoever"

Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa, spokesman for the investigation, has confided in British former Chief Inspector Albert Kirby that neither the windows nor their shutters had been tampered with.

Albert Kirby

"I had a very interesting chat with the officer in charge. The window shutters are not an issue."

Confirming this, 
John Hill (resort manager) said that there was:

"no sign of a break in whatsoever"

Even the McCann's very own spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, finally conceded that:

“There was no evidence of a break-in"

This amazing U turn was covered in many newspapers:

Irish Independent

"Interestingly, Clarence Mitchell's statement about the McCanns reversal of their 'break in' story, came one week after Dispatches aired the documentary 'Searching For Madeleine' on 18 October 2007. In that documentary, it was effectively proved that there was no way anybody could break into the apartment and leave no forensic trace or damage to the lightweight aluminium shutters, which are covered with a fine coating of polyurethane paint which marks extremely easily."

So how did an "abductor" get into a locked apartment, take Madeleine from her bed, and make off into the night, without leaving a trace?

Think Gerry, think. What you gonna do now, you're screwed. Abductors don't walk through walls.........

Taken from Gerry McCann's statement, the day after he and Kate spent the night telling lies, whilst others searched for their daughter.

"the witness, (Gerry) came to the Club, entered the room using his respective key, the door being locked"

What's that? Say that again.........

"the witness, (Gerry) came to the Club, entered the room using his respective key, the door being locked"

but I thought it was unlocked?

Well this is most peculiar. <scratches head>

Let's get this straight, first the apartment was locked, the shutters smashed, and Madeleine taken.

The next day, the shutters were fine, the patio door had been left unlocked.

Despite this patio door being unlocked, Gerry states, that both he and Kate used their key to gain access to the apartment via the front door. Here's where things get a bit odd. Check this diagram out:

The black line, denotes the route from the Tapas bar to the patio door Gerry says they left unlocked. The red line, the route to the locked door, Gerry claims he and Kate used to check on Madeleine (we will see Kate's version of events differ completely later). It beggars belief that the couple would take a route twice the distance to enter the apartment, through a locked door, when the unlocked one was much closer.

Now, over the years we've heard the excuse that the patio door was left open in case of fire. Are we really supposed to believe that if a fire was to break out, Madeleine, a 3 year old little girl, would battle through the blaze, a sibling slung over either shoulder, make her way to the unlocked patio door, and save the day? Let's say that would be possible, that Madeleine could indeed do that. Why then was Kate so sure, that Madeleine hadn't simply wandered off? How was it she was convinced straight away that "They've taken her",

Let's look at Kate's first statement now. You'll remember how Gerry said that both he and Kate used the locked, front door to gain access to the apartment. Kate however, tells a different story, she states that she actually used the unlocked patio door. The following is taken from Kate McCann's statement:

"At around 10pm, the interviewee went to check on the children. She went into the apartment by the side door, which was closed but not locked, as she said before. She noticed that the door to her children's bedroom was completely open, the window was also open, the shutters raised and the curtains open, while she was certain of having closed them all as she always did."

Statement of Kate McCann 04/05/2007

Wouldn't you think that Kate and Gerry would have known exactly which doors each other used, especially the one used for the final check?

Would it not be something you would both discuss over and over, as you desperately tried to ascertain what happened that night?

Perhaps had they not both spent the night lying to friends and family, about a fully locked apartment, and smashed shutters, (whilst not searching for their missing daughter) they might have perfected their plan B story sooner.

I will leave you to sit back and watch this video, yet another version of events, and perhaps the most ludicrous thing I have ever witnessed.



  1. This should be repeated, over and over again, until everyone realises that they LIED. And then continued to, and do so to this day.

    1. The truth will come out eventually. Just wait.

  2. The curtains - WIDE OPEN - and then changed to TIGHT CLOSED, and whooshing . . which is ludicrous in itself, but then when we look at the weather reports for that night - it was almost flat calm, low end of Force 3, which is of course measured at 3m high in the open, not across a car park and walls, and hedges and trees. They try so hard, and dig themselves deeper in with every utterance.

  3. How anyone, even the most gullible amongst us could still believe they're innocent beats me! It truly amazes me they still have followers on their site, that really DO believe their whopping lies, and come out with things like ''I hope Madeleine will be returned to her loving family soon'' WAKE UP PEOPLE now that would be a miracle!!

  4. These people had been drinking a fair bit of wine. Would Kate or Gerry McCann have remembered how far the door was left open?

  5. We only have skates word that the window was open and shutter up, ?, did she open them ?. In one statement she said the shutters were closed all week, and strangely, only kates fingerprints were found on them ?

  6. The door was open wider than "WE'D" left it. Does that mean that anyone who checked on the kids didnt actually go in to 'check' on them ???? Cos they knew who wide they'd left the door and Kate expected it to be the same after others checked??

  7. When will these liars finally be arrested? Kate has never shed a that normal? ?

  8. Getting close to May again todays statement by one of the Nannies claiming Luz was unsafe and staff told not to go out on their own is just not true. I have lived here for 12 years and this part of Portugal is the one place you do not see any trouble in relation to violence and certainly sexual assaults. It would have beeb more use if the Nannies were asked to look after the children that night and previous nights rather been left alone. Yet another lie in a attempt to blacken the name of a safe and beautiful resort.

  9. Two doors makes for nice confusion. I imagine the side door had a Yale lock, but the patio doors were maybe sliding ones, with handles on both panes on the inside that could be pressed down on the inside to lock them or pushed up to unlock. That's the arrangement we had in our apartment in Albufeira.
    This would mean that the patio doors could be unlocked and opened from the inside but not from the outside.

  10. They are the biggest liars ever. The truth will be out very soon, hope they get theirs.

  11. I remember reading very early on when this story broke that Gerry had been to check the shutters, just prior to meeting Jez. IMO he was meant to force the shutter open to make it look like an abductor had used the window to gain entry. For whatever reason this didn't happen and the jemmied/not jemmied locked/unlocked fiasco ensued.
