It is worth noting that the Australian Federal Police do not list suspect Simon Kadwell (real name Gary Felton from England) as a missing person.

Very possible he could have murdered or had "disappeared" his family, cult leaders are strange creatures at best

Madeleine McCann investigators contact Australian police over body



28 July 2015

UK police make inquiries about remains found in suitcase but Australian authorities say there is currently ‘no evidence’ it relates to McCann case.



‘We are aware of reports of the remains of a child having been found in South Australia and we have made contact with the Australian authorities,’ said a Metropolitan police spokesman.

Police officers investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have contacted Australian authorities over the discovery of a young girl’s remains in a suitcase, Scotland Yard has said.

The remains of a fair-haired girl likely to have been aged between two and four were found dumped on the side of a rural highway in the South Australian wild earlier this month.

The girl is believed to have been killed at a different location at some time since the start of 2007, according to South Australian police. The remains were found in a suitcase along with items of clothing and a degraded quilt next to a motorway in Wynarka, near Adelaide.

The discovery has led to speculation that the remains could be those of McCann, who had blond hair and was three years old when she went missing from her family’s holiday apartment in the Algarve, Portugal, on 3 May 2007.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said: “We are aware of reports of the remains of a child having been found in South Australia and we have made contact with the Australian authorities.”

Australian authorities have so far been unable to identify the body, but Det Supt Des Bray, the officer in charge of the major crime investigation branch of South Australia police, said it was “highly unlikely” that the victim is Madeleine.

“At this time our inquiries will focus on where the evidence leads us in this investigation and at this point that primary focus remains within Australia,” Bray said.

Australian police commissioner Grant Stevens told a parliamentary committee hearing: “There is absolutely no evidence at this point in time that the child is Madeleine McCann … to suggest something like that at this point in time would purely be speculating to get attention.

“We are focusing our inquiries on South Australia but we would be considering any potential missing child. Until we ascertain the identity of the child we need to be open to all possibilities.”

Scotland Yard refuses to rule out Madeleine McCann link in SA child murder victim case



28 July 2015

THE body of a murdered child found on the side of a South Australian highway could be that of missing toddler Madeleine McCann, British police have indicated.

Although SA police have strongly denied any link between the world’s most high-profile missing girl and the child remains found in suitcase on the side of the remote highway Wynarka, a Scotland Yard spokesman said it could not be ruled out.

According to UK’s site the Mirror, the spokesman confirmed that British officers got in touch with their Australian counterparts just after the skeletal remain were found.



Dumped ... A snapshot of the highway where the body of a girl, aged between two and four, was found.

“We are aware of reports of the remains of a child having been found in South Australia, and we have made contact with the Australian authorities,” he said.

SA police believe a fair-haired girl aged between two-and-a-half and four is the murder victim whose remains were found in the Murray Mallee in the Riverland, earlier this month.

Following an autopsy, police revealed it was “terribly clear that the child died a violent death under terrible circumstances”.

“Everything about this case is tragic,” said Detective Superintendent Des Bray.



 A tent covers the area where a child’s bones were discovered in bushes beside the Karoonda Highway, east of Adelaide.

At the time of her disappearance from the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz in 2007, Maddie was three-years-old. She would now be 11, which fits the description of the SA child victim.

Since her mysterious disappearance, the search for Maddie has spanned eight years, covering and almost every sighting, theory, witness account and suspect.

However, Australian police are refusing to be drawn into this latest theory, with South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens telling reporters that there was “absolutely no evidence at this point in time to suggest that the child concerned is Madeleine McCann”.

“We’re prepared to consider any possibility, but to suggest something like that at this point in time would purely be speculation for the benefit of getting attention.”

Supt Des Bray previously said the little girl could have died up to eight years ago.

No more spurious than many past ridiculous linkages. Probably highly unlikely though even if the Met have said they can't rule it out.

They would be foolish to do so until they had DNA conformation that it wasn't.

I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

I had a look through the Aussie missing children database and the only female child which fits this case is Leela McDougall.  I hasten to add that the geographical locations of where Leela and her family were last seen ie in the far southwest of Australia would seem to rule them out.

It is more likely that the remains belong to a child who has never been reported missing since these things do occur in the vast wilderness of Australia.

Have they determined if the bones belong to a white child or a native?

Yes, and the Ozzie police rekons someone is doing this  publicity for attention...lol oopsy.

The body is of a child aged 2-4?   a two year olds body is different from a 4 year olds. 

I had tears in my eyes reading this- poor child-god knows how she died- her parents.....too awful.

My friend questioned why in a suitcase...

For it to be Maddie we need to look for Victoria Bek look a likie... or the millionaire Yatching crowd.


I agree with Mercury about the  age difference.  The child had fair hair but Leela had brown hair?  The quilt could have been made by Leela's mum as she was known to mend clothes?  I wonder what age the father is now... a man in his 60's seen in the vacinity, and the body was left to be found? mmm baffling indeed!

According to the Express today, a skeleton of a three year old girl was discovered in a suitcase by the roadside in the Australian Outback and COULD be Madeleine McCann!! We shall have to wait and see.

I don't believe the body and suitcases were left to be found.  More likely some wild animals or dingoes found them and scattered their contents which over time drew the attention of passing motorists to the scene.  Wasn't that what happened in the other missing Chamberlain baby case in Australia, clothing was eventually found in an animal burrow.
