I think the problem you may be having is that you appear to be trying to make a mountain out of a molehill or something out of nothing.
It really is nothing too.  Have you ever seen Mrs Carpenter's statement ... I haven't ... I've only read hearsay?  There is probably a good reason why she had nothing to say if you carefully read her (deaf ???) husband's statement on her behalf.

At approximately half past eight, Gerry and Kate and their group of approximately ten people were already seated at their table, which was so close to ours that it was possible to converse with them, we spoke of tennis amongst other things, I vaguely remember that Gerry and Kate and other people from the group would leave the table in intervals (inaudible), I think it was to check on the children , but I do not remember with what frequency or how many times the people left the table to check on the children.

My wife mentioned on the following day that she vaguely remembered someone calling "Madeleine, Madeleine", this was after we had crossed the road from the MW reception and before entering our apartment. She does not remember where the sound came from or whether it was in an urgent tone, not paying any more attention to it and only remembered the following day when we heard about Madeleine's disappearance".

What possible reason could SC have for making up what he said his wife told him

But still, you need to ask yourself were they right.

I don't think they were right. There is not really any evidence to say that the marks on Nevill's back happened on the night of the murders and in order to conduct an experiment with the rifle and the silencer, they need to have used like for like and they didn't. Different rifle, different silencer and cold thick hard pig skin is no match for the warm soft skin on Sheila's throat.They got A result, not a definitive result.

I accept the statements are more or less an accurate representation of what the witnesses saw and heard or thought they saw and heard and the time they thought they saw or heard it.  I accept the possibility / likelihood of human fallibility  at every stage of the witness statement process.  It isn’t necessary to try and make every single piece of the jigsaw fit together withing the framework of the timeline you know, as you will find it impossible to do so.  You have to use a modicum of judgement and common sense to work out the most likely chain of events even if not every single witness statement supports it.

None of the holidaymakers were caring about time.  Even Stephen Carpenter was pretty vague,  But he seems quite certain the McCann party were seated by half eight ... possibly because he either looked at his watch or had calculated it from the time of his booking.

Does SC’s wife say it was a female voice? In their April 200& statement I just remember a reference to “a voice” but the line of questioning appears quite poor given the possible significance of “a voice” saying “Madeleine, Madeleine” at some point “around 9:15 to 9:30”

Nonsense. He signed his statement confirming that time!
And now they could claim not even remembering signing that.   Look at Prince Andrew and his bad memory, or is it?  You can't make a person remember something if they don't want to.

And many believe that if she had nothing to hide she would have answered them and take her refusal to answer as evidence of guilt.  Now argue that I’m wrong.
Guilty of what though?

Build a case? I've yet to see one credible piece of evidence to say that he was involved in Madeleine's disappearance. They claimed concrete evidence which would be a matter of urgency so I can rule that out! No surprise to me that SY are calling it a missing person case.
It’s sad for you and all the other armchair detectives that the Germans haven’t chosen to share with you everything that have on this man, but try not to be too bitter about it.

Good to know he will be banged up for at least another six months, which gives the Germans time to build their case knowing he ain’t going nowhere.

They all be saying,"I can't remember now it was too long ago".

Nonsense. He signed his statement confirming that time!
