I've listened to it. I'm not sure it was as exciting as all that, but still, hats off to all concerned. Probably the most coherent media treatment that there has yet been.

Well Mark certainly nails his colours to the mast at the end (although he still doesn't identify 'who dunnit'). Lots in this last one, the Dr Perlin offer now with Portuguese is hopefully a step forward but I really don't think it will be taken up.

Most of the information we're already aware of however his target audience is not those steeped in the case.

Overall I thought it was an excellent series and he left us with a bit of a mystery as to what else he knows. Well worth taking the time to listen.

There must be a few people who follow the case who know more than they can let on? Even my own cursory research has lead me off in directions that I would never post about on here.

It would be fascinating to know who the PJ's "sensitive and distant" person of interest is.

So Goncalo Amaral was asked outright if he had changed his theory or opinion what had happened to Madeleine and he says his theory remains the same......as detailed in his book.  

So in answer to Tony Bennett's tweet yes we do know what Goncalo Amaral thinks 12 years on.....EXACTLY THE SAME AS HE THOUGHT THEN.

Have a look from around 43 mins into the podcast......where he reiterates this.

Mark talks about reading the emails back and forth between police  re the reconstruction from Tapas 7 and them not attending and he can't help wondering 'where was the concern for Maddie was in all of this'

How true. Sad

Replying to @EmmaJJW

All the talk of DNA-17 in this case = smokescreen. Just email all the digital data to a Pittsburgh lab, and wait for two weeks. It's what a NSW prosecutor did in a quintuple murder case and, voila, they got their guy who had avoided justice in 2 earlier trials #McCann

Some comments on twitter...


I'm listening to @saunokonoko's latest Maddie podcast!. my immediate thought is, why the fuck hasn't any UK journalists had the balls to do what Mark has done?. The gutless, spineless arseholes, have no morals, nor desire for justice for a dead child, denied a voice! #McCann


Exceptional work from @saunokonoko who clearly has justice for poor Maddie at the top of his agenda. Can the same be said of others? Justice for Maddie #McCann




Absolutely. Captivating. Huge congrats has to go to @saunokonoko, @DanMcHugh and @kingymoments (among many others). This podcast sparked an international conversation and could still help lead to answers. What an achievement. #Maddie #MadeleineMcCann




At last after 12 years a journalist with some balls! #McCann

Maddie McCann Australian Podcast IMPORTANT Followup: TWO KEY POINTS






Cover for 'Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann'

Mark Saunokonoko’s excellent ten part podcast series on the Madeleine McCann case has come to an end. I very much appreciate being included in the work as it is a rare bit of true reporting on the case amongst the myriad of McCann supported, McCann generated propaganda that has been ongoing for a decade, misleading the public as to the facts of the case.

However, I do want to add TWO POINTS which were not included in the podcast which I believe are of utmost importance to the case, probably my two MOST IMPORTANT conclusions which go to the heart of what happened to Maddie: WHO was Smithman and WHERE is Maddie’s body?

I said in the podcast that I believed Smithman was the key to the case. But, what was left out was the very reason WHY I believe Smithman is the key to the case. It is NOT because I believe the man was the likely abductor of Maddie (as was libelously reported by The Sun) nor because I believe that the man was likely Gerry McCann carrying off the body of his deceased child (although the evidence tends to support this). The major reason I believe Smithman is the key to the case is because the McCanns showed very little interest in this sighting, downplayed the sighting, or tried to link the sighting with Tannerman, an attempt to make two men into one man.

The FACT - and it is a fact - that the McCanns did not want to focus on Smithman as an abductor is a massive red flag. ANY parent of a missing child would move heaven and earth to have such a sighting followed up on by both the police and the public. This was not some vague sighting of a girl matching Maddie’s description in some far off country; this is the sighting of a man carrying a little girl from the direction of the McCann vacation flat at exactly the time the child went missing. Yet, the McCanns shrug their shoulders and show no interest. In fact, when they are confronted, they will only acknowledge the sighting as possibly Maddie IF and only IF that man is also Tannerman thereby giving Gerry an alibi at the time the “original” sighting, Tanner’s sighting, of the man occurred.

The only logical conclusion that one can make that the McCanns did not care to focus on the Smith sighting as the true sighting and separate from Tannerman sighting of someone carrying off their child is because THAT MAN WAS GERRY.

The second important point left out of the podcast was WHERE is Maddie’s body? The podcast covered Location 1 and Location 2 (an initial temporary hiding place, perhaps, under an overturned boat, and a second temporary hiding place in a crevice on the Rocha Negra accessible from the beach).

Read my blog on these hiding locations here: On Moving and Hiding Bodies

The third and MOST important location would be Location 3.

From my previous blog on Find the Body and Prove We Killed Her, this is the most important point; the location where I believe is the best possiblity to find the body of Madeliene McCann.

Before coming to Portugal, I entertained a number of possibilities: the Huelva baths in Spain where the McCanns went just as the cadaver dogs were arriving, removal back to the UK, and incineration. Each had its interesting possibilities but each also seemed a bit too difficult to accomplish (although by no means am I saying such actions would have been impossible) and it is a pretty good rule of thumb that people do what is easier to manage and simpler to pull off. Because of this, I came to two more probable conclusions, both involving Gerry driving the body to a location he felt was secluded and unlikely to be discovered. I was particularly interested in the activities of the McCann in the days before the Huelva trip when Gerry's phone pinged repeatedly in an area to the west of Praia da Luz along the road to Budens, (estre EN125). I also found it interesting that the day he was to leave for Huelva, he was not feeling well, having a bit of an upset stomach. This led me to theorize he could have used that day to move the body or to recover from moving it the day before. I decided when I got to Praia da Luz, I would take a trip down that road to the west and see whether there were any suitable places to lose a body forever.

Gerry seems to be quite practical and rather cold and calculating and he simply may have decided, Kate’s feelings be damned, that making sure the body was never found was of paramount importance and they would have to live with it.

Monte do Jose Mestre. This huge, desolate area covers many square metres and is filled with a considerable network of dirt roads. Looking down on the area from atop the highest hill is a row of windmills. Small trees and bushes are scattered throughout and the dirt is not impossible to dig in. Gerry had just returned from England and I wouldn’t be surprised, if he is involved in disposing of Maddie’s body, that he brought a small shovel back with him, one that could be tossed into the bushes when he finished digging the grave or thrown away in a dumpster on the way back to Praia da Luz. If the body is buried out there, it would be unlikely to ever be found unless a large contingent of searchers and dogs descended upon the area and then it would still be pretty lucky if they located a grave. I hope, however, this is done sometime in the future.  
I would like to know if Maddie is there or not.


Views of Monte do Jose Mestre below.
























Along with retesting the DNA, searching this location is the other most useful exercise in trying to find out what happed to Maddie. True, it would require a lot of searching at that location, perhaps with dogs and metal detectors, but I can think of no better place at this point to search for the body of Madeleine McCann.




So, to recap, the McCanns burying of the Smith sighting is the strongest proof we have that Smithman is the key to the case and likely Gerry McCann carrying off the body of his dead daughter and the possible burying of the child at Monte do Jose Mestre the other most important key to solving the case outside of DNA or a confession.

Yes, it's all a bit crass. I have my own speculations as to where she might be but I wouldn't just discuss it that matter of factly, it's still a little person that we're talking about.

This is another recent article by Mark, summaising his podcasts.

The last sentence is of great interest!

“Nine.com.au is currently exploring other avenues to shake loose the DNA data and place it into the hands of forensic scientist Dr Perlin”

https://www.9news.com.au/world/madeleine-mccann-what-we-learned-in-maddie-podcast/f43be997-1692-4146-9c68-3ce5dd8bf375

I think this sets out exactly his train of thought, without actually naming anyone.

'Gamechanger' in Madeleine McCann mystery waits patiently while cold case continues to stagnate

By Mark Saunokonoko
10:22am May 19, 2019


It's remarkable to think that a double PhD holder quietly living in Pittsburgh, USA, a man who has never set foot in Portugal, could be the one capable of triggering the biggest breakthrough in the Madeleine McCann cold case in a decade.
What's maybe even more remarkable is that the UK's largest police force appear disinterested in allowing world-leading DNA expert Dr Mark Perlin to intervene in the Madeleine mystery.
The Madeleine McCann case appears to have been stuck in a state of relative stagnation since Portuguese police shelved their 14-month investigation way back in 2008 and Scotland Yard launched its own inquiry, Operation Grange, in 2011.

In early 2018, nine.com.au passed an official forensic report from the McCann investigation to American DNA scientist Dr Perlin. Following a review of that document, Dr Perlin said he was confident that his advanced computational testing methods could unlock vital forensic evidence potentially loaded with clues about what happened to Maddie. The chief scientist at Pittsburgh lab Cybergenetics is an acclaimed expert with a proven courtroom record of solving some of the most complex DNA samples on the planet.
As revealed in the nine.com.au podcast Maddie, Dr Perlin informed Operation Grange he would analyse the McCann DNA samples for free. The offer seemed even more appealing with confirmation he could deliver those results in less than 14 days.

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen12

Operation Grange have sat on Dr Perlin's pro bono offer for over a year. DCI Nicola Wall, head of Operation Grange, is yet to acknowledge Dr Perlin's formal approach, which detailed his record of assisting UK law enforcement since the early 2000s.
In the meantime, DCI Wall has gone back to the UK Home Office reportedly requesting more than $500,000 of tax payer funds to keep Operation Grange up and running. Some former Scotland Yard officers who spoke to nine.com.au expressed their concern over what they claim is a blinkered Operation Grange remit.



Dr Perlin said his testing methods can solve at least 18 DNA samples which were frustratingly ruled inconclusive by a British laboratory, the Forensic Science Service, in 2007. Those samples were taken from the McCann living room, around and under a blue two-seat sofa, and inside the boot compartment of a rental car which was hired 25 days after Madeleine went missing.
Colin Sutton, a top retired Scotland Yard detective, believes in light of Dr Perlin's offer Operation Grange could be a sitting on "a real game changer".


The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen13


Since the DNA revelations were first aired in nine.com.au's hit podcast Maddie, Dr Perlin's offer has been heavily reported on by worldwide media. But despite persistent reminding by the Maddie podcast, Scotland Yard’s only response to date has been: "It will not provide a running commentary" on the case.
Two years in the making, the multi-episode Maddie podcast investigation quickly hit number 1 in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand iTunes charts. Since its March release, Maddie has been downloaded almost 2 million times.
Dr Perlin and the dramatic DNA revelations were undoubtedly one of the most significant pieces of new information to emerge in Maddie.
But a sudden appearance near the end of the series by Goncalo Amaral, the former Portuguese detective who led the 2007 investigation for five months before he was removed from the case, also produced some seismic allegations.

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen14

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen15

This diagram of the Ocean Club Resort shows which apartments were given to the McCanns and their friends, who became known as the Tapas 7, during their week-long vacation in Praia da Luz.

'Concealed' Police Statements
In Mr Amaral's interview, a rarity for English-speaking media, he claimed Scotland Yard's Operation Grange was looking to wrap up its seven-year inquiry and was targeting a German paedophile. Mr Amaral claimed the German, a known child sex offender currently in prison, had not committed the crime in his opinion and would be a "scapegoat".
Mr Amaral also claimed that in 2007 British police had initially buried some statements that could have assisted his team's investigation. According to Mr Amaral, Portuguese police had requested further information about a potential person of interest, who may have had links to an international paedophile ring.
"The British police said there was absolutely nothing [of importance related to that person]," Mr Amaral said on Maddie.
"Of course at the time when the British police stated that they did not have any information they already had the statements [which were allegedly concealed from the Portuguese until late 2007]."
Mr Amaral said "it would have changed everything" if his team of detectives had been given those statements back in May 2007.

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen16

Both Leicestershire Police and Scotland Yard refused to comment on Mr Amaral's allegations that some UK police officers had withheld statements, impeding the inquiry.
The former Portuguese detective outlined a theory about what may have happened to Madeleine in his controversial 2008 book.
The 22-chapter The Truth of the Lie alleged Maddie died in apartment 5A, her abduction was simulated and the body somehow disposed of. His book became the focal point of a protracted and bitter legal feud with the McCanns. It was a fight the McCanns initially won, then lost in the Supreme Court after an appeal was lodged.
In Maddie, Mr Amaral also revealed that, acting on a tip off, his team of detectives had been trying to locate a mystery apartment somewhere in or around Praia da Luz when he was pulled off the case in October 2007. A deep freezer or fridge in the apartment could have been storing Madeleine's body before it was hidden forever, Mr Amaral claimed.



A US criminal profiler, Pat Brown, explored a different theory in Maddie, that Madeleine's body may have been moved two times before being disposed of in a place nobody had ever discovered.
Ms Brown speculated a man took Madeleine's body away from the apartment in a panic late on the night of May 3 and placed it in a temporary hiding place, near the beach. She theorised that same man may have returned to the body before sunrise on May 4, to move it to a safer place, where it remained hidden for some weeks and maybe even months.
In August 2007 a specialist cadaver and blood dog team from England was sent for by Portuguese police, which may have motivated the offender to move the body one final time, possibly using a car. Madeleine's body could have been taken into the remote countryside, or perhaps disposed of in a dumpster somewhere in the surrounding area.
Ms Brown said the still unidentified man an Irish family spotted at 10pm on the night of May 3, carrying a motionless, barefoot girl in pyjamas towards the beach – which became known as "the Smith Sighting" - was, in her opinion, the likely offender.

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen17


Gerry McCann, Jane Tanner movements on May 3
The other significant sighting from the night of May 3 came from Jane Tanner, a British friend of the McCanns who was part of the group holiday. Ms Tanner said she had witnessed a man carrying a girl away from the direction of apartment 5A at around 9:15pm, on May 3.
Ms Tanner's sighting reportedly occurred at exactly the same time she walked past Mr McCann and another British holidaymaker, Jeremy Wilkins, a filmmaker from London, on a quiet lane close to 5A.
Ms Tanner's sighting put Mr McCann on the street at the same time a potential abductor was walking away with his daughter, Madeleine.

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen18

The Madeleine podcasts from 9 News Australia - Page 7 Screen19

The Crime Scene
In the podcast, doubts over aspects of Ms Tanner's sighting were raised several times by various experts who have analysed or worked on the case. One of those people was Joseph Moura, an American private detective hired in 2007 by US broadcaster CBS News to investigate the case.
Mr Moura said he disregarded Ms Tanner's statement, and labelled it "erroneous". As part of his CBS brief, Mr Moura worked undercover at the Ocean Club Resort for a week, spending time with employees and especially workers at the tapas restaurant where the McCanns and their friends ate each night. Mr Moura claimed he had doubts about the entire checking system the group said they operated on the night of May 3.
The McCanns said a predator must have been watching them as they left the kids alone while they ate dinner with their friends. An abductor snatched Madeleine from her bed, they said.
Mr and Mrs McCann, both doctors from Rothley, Leicestershire, have strenuously denied they were involved in the disappearance of their daughter, and nine.com.au does not suggest any involvement on their part.
Portuguese police considered there appeared to be no forensic evidence of someone breaking into 5A, and adding to the complexity surrounding the case, Mr McCann's first two police statements gave differing accounts of which door he used to enter the apartment, and which doors were and weren't locked.
Mrs McCann said when she checked on Madeleine and the twins, Sean and Amelie, at 10pm, she found Maddie's bed empty and the bedroom window wide open. She described the metallic window shutters up, and the curtains blowing. Mrs McCann said a breeze blew the kids' bedroom door shut in her face.
A former Nottinghamshire police superintendent who appeared in the podcast described how he visited apartment 5A and checked the bedroom window. Peter MacLeod said the window was small, only 50cm wide. He claimed he "did not think it was possible" for someone to climb out of the window holding a small child.

Wikileaks and Madeleine
In the first few days of Madeleine going missing, reports began to appear in several UK newspapers quoting friends and family of the McCanns claiming the window shutters had been broken into or jemmied open. But Portuguese police said that was not the case, and believed there was no damage to the window or signs of forced entry. The only fingerprints they said were found on the children's bedroom window were those of Madeleine's mother, Kate.
British media were generally very critical of the Portuguese police investigation and the lead detective, Mr Amaral. The arrival of British police to assist in the investigation sometimes caused further tension between the two countries.
As documented in Maddie, notable was the immediate deployment and intervention of a number of British diplomats inside of 24 hours of Maddie going missing.
Although it had always been widely assumed and reported the Portuguese had turned the investigation towards Mr and Mrs McCann, a diplomatic cable from the US embassy in Lisbon which was leaked in 2010 by Wikileaks appeared to debunk that line of thinking.
Just two weeks after Mr and Mrs McCann were declared arguidos, formal suspects, the US ambassador to Portugal typed up a cable to Washington DC. The US ambassador, Al Hoffman, stated that during a private discussion with the UK ambassador he had been told "British police had developed the current evidence against the McCann parents”.
The evidence that the leaked US cable referred to largely reflected work carried out three months after Madeleine vanished by a highly specialised search team from the UK. That unit was comprised of Mark Harrison, the top search expert advisor to all police forces in the UK, and a dog handler named Martin Grime and his two dogs, springer spaniels Eddie and Keela.

The Dogs
Mr Harrison was called to Praia da Luz by Mr Amaral and his team with a remit to build a report solely focused on the increasing likelihood that Madeleine was dead. They wanted the UK national search guru to assess where and how someone could have disposed of Madeleine's body in or around the coastal Algarve town.
There were a number of locations Mr Harrison was interested in. He believed bringing Mr Grime and his two dogs, Eddie and Keela, to Portugal would be beneficial. During a week of intensive searches, the dogs, which arrived with apparent stellar credentials, alerted numerous times in the McCann holiday apartment, on several items of Mrs McCann's personal items and, most controversially, in and around a rental car hired 25 days after Madeleine was reported missing.
The work of cadaver and blood dogs needs to be corroborated by additional evidence, such as DNA or a confession. Forensic samples were taken from apartment 5A and the boot compartment of the silver Renault Scenic. The now closed Forensic Science Service in the UK tested the samples in late summer of 2007. The vast majority of those samples were judged to be "inconclusive".

In a final report, British FSS scientist John Lowe wrote that his lab was unable to solve most of the samples, including evidence from the car boot, because it was "too complex and challenging" for his testing methods, which are now viewed as outdated.
Dr Lowe's DNA report suddenly cast doubt on the work of the dogs, and the investigation limped on for almost another year before it was eventually shelved, with no Madeleine, no arrests and no body. The McCanns ceased to be considered formal suspects by Portuguese police, and the British police considered they had been cleared of any involvement.
In the podcast, dog handler Martin Grime stated the work of his dogs, Eddie and Keela, had been misunderstood by many who claimed the alerts of his dogs had been wrong.
"People are missing the point," Mr Grime countered in Maddie. "The dogs' responses were confirmed by the recovery of DNA samples. Just because the analysis of those samples did not provide conclusive results you can't just trash what the dogs do."

Mystery Phone Call
Former Scotland Yard detective Colin Sutton was once tipped to lead London Metropolitan Police's Operation Grange, the UK strike force launched in 2011 to review and investigate Maddie's disappearance.
Mr Sutton solved numerous homicides while working for London's Metropolitan Police and brought serial killer Levi Bellfield and serial rapist Delroy Grant, known as The Nightstalker, to justice.
In evaluating various theories about what could have happened to Madeleine, from a stranger abduction through to involvement by someone known to the family, he said it was a truly bizarre and confounding crime.
"The difficulty that I have with it, is whichever way you look at it you've got to kind of believe something that is almost incredible," Mr Sutton said.
"[Each scenario] has a degree of incredible facts mixed in with it and you've got to kind of think to yourself, whichever of those it comes to be in the end ... the truth is actually a bit fantastic in this case. It is a wholly exceptional set of circumstances."

British police officers search an area of wasteland in 2014 during a search for evidence of Madeleine McCann in the town of Praia da Luz, Portugal where she went missing in May 2007.

Mr Sutton openly questioned the remit of Operation Grange, which appeared to be focused on an abduction of Madeleine, and not open to other possible scenarios.
Around 2011, at the time he was being touted as a potential candidate to lead Operation Grange, Mr Sutton said he received a mysterious phone call from a high-ranking figure inside London Metropolitan Police.
"I was privately told by a senior officer that it was going to be an investigation where you were told what things you could and couldn't look at," Mr Sutton said.
"The remit and the focus of Operation Grange has been so narrow that it probably was hobbled from the beginning and didn't really have a chance at succeeding."

Secret Scoping Report
However, Jim Gamble, the one-time head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) agency, expressed his confidence in Operation Grange and defended its remit. Mr Gamble, who was involved in the official 2007 investigation through the deployment of CEOP behavioural analysts, said Madeleine's parents had already been thoroughly investigated by the Portuguese, and there was no need to go back over that ground.
It was a secret scoping report of the Portuguese investigation written by Mr Gamble which reportedly triggered the launch of Operation Grange, by the UK Home Office. In Maddie, Mr Gamble said intelligence gathered from his analysts in Praia da Luz indicated Madeleine's parents were not involved in her disappearance.
He claimed the Madeleine mystery, the world's most famous missing person case, would be solved.
"I believe that in my lifetime we will actually find out what happened to Madeleine McCann," Mr Gamble said.
"There will be a break, whether it is DNA, whether it is someone who was involved, directly or indirectly, who has been struggling with their conscience, who actually saw something on that night that they kept to themselves.
"Maybe their relationship with an individual has changed and they now reflect on it, and their conscience is weighing heavily."

The world-renowned testing methods offered by Dr Mark Perlin appears to fit the kind of DNA breakthrough which Mr Gamble hopes could blow this 12-year-old cold case wide open.
Despite numerous requests from nine.com.au, Scotland Yard, the UK Home Office and UK Prime Minister Theresa May's office has refused to comment on Dr Perlin's pro bono offer. Ms May was the Home Secretary who launched Operation Grange in 2011.
Nine.com.au have recently contacted Portugal's police, the Policia Judiciaria (PJ), with contact details for Dr Perlin and outlining how he could help the investigation. Dr Perlin, who has assisted prosecutors and law enforcement agencies worldwide, has sent formal offers to both Scotland Yard and the PJ.
Retired detective Goncalo Amaral said the PJ would likely ignore Dr Perlin's offer, just as Scotland Yard appears to have done. Mr Amaral claimed Operation Grange was a "whitewash" and an "image enhancement" operation.
"When I was dismissed from the investigation, the team that came in to replace me was only dedicated to archiving, to shelving the case. They had only had to go through the motions to achieve the archiving of the process," Mr Amaral said.
It would have been Madeleine's 16th birthday last weekend. It seems the only way of moving the investigation forward is a DNA breakthrough, the discovery of new evidence or a confession.
Nine.com.au is currently exploring other avenues to shake loose the DNA data and place it into the hands of forensic scientist Dr Perlin.

The last sentence is of great interest!

I think this sets out exactly his train of thought, without actually naming anyone.

The amount of podcasts/youtube stuff related to Maddie now is off the scale. Here's another one still.

Just a thought, but when you have a police force deciding from "the top" that they're going to determine which way an investigation will go, and actively preventing the investigation from following all leads, and especially leads which may actually solve the crime instead of leaving it inconclusive...it generally means that the police force itself has something very big to hide. Is it possible that someone with deep and powerful connections to Scotland Yard/the UK police might have had something to do with Madeleine's fate? Moreover, might the reluctance to have the DNA samples re-tested mean that there's a possibility that THIS person's DNA might be discovered in the mix?

IE - Who else's DNA are they afraid of finding??
