I can appreciate that as sometimes the repetitive nastiness of it all is wearing and at the moment we don't know much at all about what is going on in the German investigation.  We're at the wait and see stage.

Anyway, glad you are well.

Back on topic ~
First of all what has been billed as 'a hoax' actually never was as far as the photograph is concerned.  The hoax was the bomb alert which was nothing at all to do with the photograph.

I think there is a significance that the photograph was taken at a busy international airport and was used to illustrate a news report of the event.

There is no doubt that the little girl and her unkempt companions make an incongruous threesome and I agree with Anthro that the similarity between Kruse and the man holding the child's hand is disturbing.
Almost as disturbing as the eagerness to dispel the similarity with Madeleine without any checks being done and the mere thought of that possibility being treated with such negativity.

I wish Sadie was able to post ~ this is her forte.  I think the unusually high forehead matches.
The “hoax” element was the claim that the picture was taken in Brazil.

Police arrest shakes up Madeleine McCann case 12 years after girl's disappearance
Paulo Pereira Cristovao appeared in the Netflix documentary series harshly questioning the parents of the girl who disappeared in Praia da Luz in 2007

December 7, 2019

A former Portuguese detective who was involved in the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007 and who recently appeared in the Netflix documentary about the case, was arrested and sentenced to seven and a half years in prison.

Paulo Pereira Cristovao, who also wrote a book about the mysterious plot, in which he harshly accused the girl's parents, was part of a criminal network that orchestrated several violent robberies at properties in Lisbon and at a resort in Cascaes. The prosecution proved that his role in the gang was to provide key information about the victims and their homes.

Gonçalo Amaral, who had been the chief investigator in the Madeleine McCann case, is also suspected of participating in the criminal network. However, he will remain at large until his judicial status is determined.

The 51-year-old former policeman had gone so far as to call for Kate and Gerry McCann to be arrested for leaving Madeleine alone at the Algarve hotel. In The Star of Madeleine, his book, he claimed that the girl had died and that her body had been thrown into the sea. Pereira Cristovao had been displaced from the police in 2009, accused of torturing the mother and uncle of another missing girl to make a false confession

The McCann case was reinvigorated in March with the premiere of the Netflix documentary about her disappearance, which claims that the British girl, last seen 12 years ago in Portugal, is still alive and being held hostage by a human trafficking network. The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, interviews dozens of experts and key figures in the case, in the hope of rekindled the mystery and reaching, among the more than 150 million subscribers, someone who can recognize her, if the girl is still alive.

Jim Gamble, the British police authority that led the first investigation, was emphatic: "I absolutely believe that before I die we will find out what happened to her." In that regard, he highlighted the important advances in DNA technology and facial recognition with which the evidence of old cases is reviewed.

The main hypothesis constructed in the documentary is that the girl was kidnapped for a trafficking network, due to her blonde appearance, which gives her more value on the black market. Julián Peribánez, a private investigator who was hired by the family, explained: "(Mafias) usually go after poor children from third world countries. It is the main source. The value that Madeleine had was very high, they were going to get a lot of money." In addition, the documentary argues that Portugal is a perfect location for the kidnappers, being able to take the victims by boat to almost countless parts of Europe.

However, the production does not feature the testimonies of Kate and Gerry McCann, who do not believe the documentary helps in the search and refused to participate in the interviews.

It is somewhat fanciful to believe such gangs would go after such a massively high risk target just because she had blonde hair.

The problem with the “lost in translation” claim is that the statements were read back in English and signed as an accurate account of the interview.

Brueckner was on the rampage for many years behaving in the manner you describe.  Burglary sometimes involves creeping about in the dark past a variety of obstacles - we are told he entered a room full of sleeping teenagers one of whom raised the alarm causing him to run naked into the street to make his escape.

Burglars who leave traces behind them end up being addressed as 'prisoner in the dock'.

He spent a considerable amount of time raping and torturing a woman in her own home leaving only a pubic hair behind him.

My opinion is that for anyone with the record Brueckner has, entering and leaving apartment 5A would have been a dawdle.

So think again.  Brueckner wouldn't have seen either PeterMac or Heri in his way when it came to raising from outside the shutters sceptics have spent years tryng to convince the world it couldn't be done when it is patently obvious that is nonsense.

An officer attempts to enter the apartment through Maddie's bedroom window

Not only did he "attempt" to enter - he did enter via the window - and was apparently seen to hand a bundle through to his colleagues while the new coordinator watched what was obviously the reconstitution of a crime.

Your comment on the teenagers makes Barriers point!!!!

What’s happened with the shutters on that still photo from the forensic journal aka Gerry’s blog? The reality is that no one on this forum has ever put forward evidence that the shutters were opened and Maddie taken out of the window by an abductor. The Tapas group who were first on the scene couldn’t agree on the window and shutters when first asked. Also an abductor would have to be watching goings on to operate so successfully in such a small window of opportunity. They would have known that checks involving going inside didn’t normally happen and also that the doors facing the pool were not locked!! Why not just go in through the door? The bottom line is there was no evidence to suggest a break in and abduction.

How exciting, but I wonder if they would only be middle level.  Involved but not the leaders?  Cos, I think that I have a pretty good idea who the leaders are.   I wonder what/who put them onto these Russians ?   *%6^


NOTE:   It must be 3 months that I have been excluded from forum, but today for some reason I am allowed back.   Not good enough John.  It needs sorting.  please

Good to see you posting.

“ A Portuguese source said: “The new information is pointing towards the fact two Russians could be behind it.”

I said, up to you.
 Now, I appreciate I'm on very shaky ground  when it comes to staying on this forum and I'm sure you can appreciate I'm not going to let anyone make me stupid. So, good night, Dexter.

What are you on about?

Just because you don't agree with someone you can still appreciate the effort

I think the general public is much more receptive to the idea of justice thwarted than it once was.
