A possible break in the 2007 disappearance of Three-Year-Old Madeleine McCann.

Police have identified a German pedophile as the new prime suspect in the investigation into the disappearance of British child Madeleine McCann in Portugal 13 years ago, as a fresh international appeal for information was launched:

An appeal for information was made for anyone who recognized two phone numbers, a camper van and also a Jaguar car linked to the man. German police also issued an appeal with additional details on national television.

In the OCCK case retired Birmingham Lt./Det. Jack Kalbfleisch put a priority on the suspect(s) vehicles, including the car leaving the bumper impression in the snow at the site Kristine’s body was dumped. But the task force only focused on the ubiquitous blue Gremlin. The MSP task force commander at the time, Robert Robertson, downplayed the information Jack discovered. Decades later, MSP Det/Sgt. Garry Gray would not take this information to the public because “it would generate too many useless leads” and be embarrassing. The suspicious car one of my brothers told police he saw driving around our neighborhood later in the evening after Tim was abducted was ignored. The LeMans parked in the lot where Tim King was last seen, described by witness Doug Wilson (a car designer for god’s sake!) with a license plate with the numbers 222 in it, was never described to the public. An AMC Gremlin was chopped in the garage behind pedophile Bob Moore’s house in Detroit after Tim’s murder. And Dave Robertson (Robert Robertson’s son) describes the 1966 Sloan Bonneville as having later been owned by a MSP lieutenant’s son, while on camera with the crew from Children of the Snow–and then cannot remember later whether that was true or not or supply any other details.

In 2012 the Oakland County prosecutor’s office describes the car owned by Arch Sloan and asks for tips about Sloan. How’s that going after eight years of hard sleuthing?

In the McCann case, Metropolitan Police Investigator Mark Cranwell told reporters this week that “Someone out there knows a lot more than they are letting on.” https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/world/convicted-child-sex-offender-identified-suspect-in-madeleine-mccann-case. The investigator added:

“They’re a key witness and we urge them to get in touch,” Mr Cranwell said.

“Some people will know the man we’re describing today… you may be aware of some of the things he’s done.

“He may have confided in you about the disappearance of Madeleine.

“More than 13 years have passed and your loyalties may have changed.

“Now is the time to come forward.”

Since the police won’t say it in this case, I will:

Someone knows the man or men who abducted, tortured and killed Mark Stebbins, Jill Robinson, Kristine Mihelich and Tim King. He may have confided in you about his participation. You may have come across Polaroids or other photos or 8 mm film that implicate him/them. You may remember a LeMans with a license plate that had the numbers “222” in it. Or a Lemans or similar car with a trailer hitch pulled off to one side and damage to the left rear of the car. More than 43 years have passed and your loyalties may have changed. Now is the time to come forward. It is never too late to do the right thing.

    Edits above to make the point that if police wanted to put pressure on suspects or, perhaps more importantly, their complicit enablers or those who have kept silent, they could have in this case. They didn’t. I wonder why.

    Thanks to a reader for sewing this up for me.
