If keeps it in the media, but who believes what the media say? As for Edgar, he had his chance to be taken seriously and blew it with his Victoria Beckham debacle.
I wasn’t talking about the media, I was referring to the investigation.

It’s interesting that all those who fervently support Amaral’s right to an opinion publicly on what happened to Madeleine also repeatedly sneer and say “it’s not normal” for another ex-cop to share his opinion, simply because he doesn’t think the parents are involved.  Double standards, what?

Edgar isn't investigating, is he? He's speaking to the media about his beliefs.

There's a huge difference between an opinion based on evidence and a belief based on no evidence.

All the evidence that was used to make the McCann's arguidos was not confirmed.... Amarals claims were not based on evidence.

Evidence is evidence, whether it's confirmed or not.

If it's not confirmed it is not evidence... Evidence is something that supports a hypothesis... If the evidence is not confirmed it cannot support the hypothesis

So circumstantial evidence isn’t evidence?

So anything that supports the hypothesis that she is dead is evidence.

Circumstantial evidence can support a hypothesis. What it can't do is exclude other hypotheses. It is Amaral's opinion that the open window and shutters supported the hypothesis of a staged abduction. Others hold the opinion that an open window and shutters support the hypothesis that Madeleine was abducted. Edgar doesn't seem to have any evidence at all to support his hypothesis.

Of course.... So the fact she hasn't been seen for 11 years, is, evidence of death... But not proof

So amarals, evidence against the parents is the open window..... Are you serious

So if you accept amaral has evidence to support his theory you have to accept there is evidence of abduction

Are you? An example was provided, not a body of evidence.

In my opinion there is more evidence suggesting a death than there is suggesting an abduction.

Not death in the apartment... There is no evidence of death in the apartment... At least you now, accept there is, evidence of abduction
