In Correio da Manhã this morning:

McCanns' apartment: Images of the crime scene revealed
Abduction difficult to explain

The British press points out several potential hiding places for a predator that would have been inside the McCann couple's apartment at the Ocean Club while Gerry was inside checking on his three children, at approximately 9.05 p.m. on the evening of the crime. But, just like CM had already advanced before, the greatest difficulty for the eventual abductor would have been to transport Maddie through the bedroom window, jumping over a second bed that was inside the room with the three-year-old girl, without anyone seeing him and hearing the child cry.

The images from the apartment were published in yesterday's edition of 'News of the World', and apart from the parents' bedroom, the kitchen and the living room, in the bottom left corner of the main photo, at the room's entrance, one can see the bed where Maddie slept. By the side of it, the cots for the twins, Sean and Am├®lie, were placed, and to make the child exit through the window, one would have to jump over the empty bed that was placed at the far end of the room. It is remembered that Kate, after raising the alarm, pointed at the open window.

The newspaper says that at around 9.05 p.m., when Gerry interrupted his meal to visit his children, the abductor could have been hiding inside one of the narrow wardrobes; hiding behind Maddie's bedroom door; inside the family's bathroom or behind Kate and Gerry McCann's bed.

The same newspaper, after reconstituting the crime, had to realize that as soon as he heard Gerry opening the patio door into the apartment, the abductor would have had ten seconds to hide, at the utmost. Nobody woke up or cried: suspicious facts for the PJ.

Field of vision for Oldfield

When he went to check on the McCanns' children at 9.30 p.m., friend Matthew Oldfield says he only saw the twins and a corner of Maddie's bed. He thought everyone was well.


Alípio's resignation

The McCanns' spokesman, cited in blog SOS Madeleine, says that Kate and Gerry see the resignation of Alípio Ribeiro from the PJ's directory and his comments about the enquiry as a sign that Maddie's disappearance "will never be clarified".

Ineffective investigation

Clarence Mitchell also said that the entire investigation, after one year and in the case that the PJ does not reveal itself as effective in finding out what happened to the three-year-old girl, should be handed over to "private investigators".

Blog on hold

Gerry McCann has not written for the blog that he keeps on the on-line findmadeleine page since the 3rd of May, the day that marked one year after the disappearance of his daughter.
