I don't think The PJ are hot on having enough evidence, generally.

Whereas I think they are hot on getting enough evidence where a case is to go to trial.

I have been following a long running, current murder case.  While it is fascinating, any connection to the MBM case is very limited, and we are already way-off topic.

Suffice it to say the PJ are being very diligent, and the suspects have not yet been beaten up.

I have explained already why that is a misinterpretation, and unless her lawyer was a dimwit, he should have realised the police did not have sufficient evidence to charge Kate with body occultation, let alone anything more serious.

The diligencies did not stop then.

Goodness gracious me ... we are talking Red Top 07 here  🙄  ... and way before any of us were aware that not only in the repertoire did we have victim recovery dogs they could even be enhanced too.

But only one of them.

I'm getting tired now as it is 1:30 AM here.  But you have proved my point.  DC Marshall may not have seen DP statements made to the PJ.  He only has the questionnaire answers to work from.

The rogatory statement is written a year later, so you can't use that either.
You're right, it must be getting late. DC Marshal definitely did NOT see DP's second statement. He couldn't because David Payne didn't give it for another almost SIX months. His first statement makes no mention of any visit to any apartment whatsoever.

I agree with that ... she looked shattered.

Not helped by confirmation that the police had given up on a live Madeleine.

How could Payne manage I meant, according DC Marshal David Payne has written sometime before October 24, 2007 that the LAST VISIT he made to the apartment was at 17H00, both present there were Kate AND Gerry.
 
On 11.04.08 David Payne's statement gives us a completely different version of the LAST TIME HE SEEN the missing child alive. It has to be the last time, because he has already seen for the last time at 17H00 according to DC Marshal.
"So I walked back err from the tennis courts, err back to err you know Kate and Gerry's apartment and the time you know looking at, you know we've looked obviously at photographs since then and you know the time that we've got that I was you know going to Kate's about SIX THIRTY, err and I went into their apartment through the patio doors. The three children were all you know dressed you know in their pyjamas, you know they looked immaculate, you know they were just like angels, they all looked so happy and well looked after and content and I said to Kate, you know it's a bit early for the you know, for the three of them to be going to bed, she said ah they've had such a great time, they're really tired and you know err so I say, you know I can't remember exactly what, what you know the night attire, what the children were wearing but white was the predominant err colour, but you know just to reinforce they were just so happy, you know seeing you know obviously GERRY WASN'T THERE but they were just all."

Easy? I'll crack the jokes from now on.

I think whatever their respective training all dogs use their noses and can therefore be described as sniffer dogs.
I'm sure that would be an OK description back in 2007.
We are far more sophisticated now.

Of course they use their noses

A dog or dogs used by an American international airport screen inbound passengers for carrying larger amounts of cash than they have declared.  There was a particularly amusing incident when one Asian couple brought in a suitcase and box after box of 100US$ notes.  There was so much, customs officers did not have the time to count the notes, so they weighed it.  From that, the estimated value was 2.2 million.

Upon closer examination, Customs decided the notes were forgeries.

They asked the couple why they were carrying vast numbers of forged banknotes.  The Asian couple explained they were going a family ceremony in the US, and in Asian culture you burn cash as an 'offering'.  Their story checked out so they were permitted to leave.

Without the forged notes, which customs confiscated and incinerated.

It's clear that doggies do all sorts of fascinating things, many but not all using their nose.  To classify all as sniffer dogs is overly simplistic.  The 28 day period mentioned earlier might well be true for tracker dogs, I'm no expert.

But it did not apply to Eddie and Keela, because they were not tracker dogs,

How did he manage it?  Easy he wasn't told of the later visit. Did DC Marshall also get to read DP's two statements?  Maybe the PJ hadn't told  DC Marshall about those.
