Cadaver and Blood Dog Reactions Plus Inexact Science Minus Body Equals Relaxing Thoughts for kate

Dr Kate McCann, in her book ‘madeleine’,
On pages 249-250 of ‘madeleine’, for example, she writes:

“At one point [during the screening of a video of the cadaver dog Eddie alerting to the scent of a corpse in the living room of the McCanns’ apartment] the handler [Martin Grime] directed the dogs to a spot behind the conch in the sitting room, close to the curtains. He called the dogs over to him to investigate this particular site.

“The dogs ultimately ‘alerted’. I felt myself starting to relax a little. This was not what I would call an exact science”.

 An interesting comment to make and telling indeed.

 Kate spoke about junk science and relaxing when the cadaver dogs reacted. 

 If, as claimed, the parents are innocent of involvement in the disappearance of their daughter, why would kate tell us she relaxed when the cadaver and blood dogs reacted in the apartment (and subsequently the hire car)

This is highly unexpected. Put yourself in the same situation for a moment. 
Your child goes missing ( you aren't involved) blood and cadaver dogs are brought in along with normal search dogs. 

The search dogs don't react but the blood and cadaver dogs do. 
Your first and instant reaction wouldn't be oh it's junk science, nor would you relax. 

Rather than relaxing at what was indicated, the innocent parent would be terrified for their child, hysterical with the worry their child was injured and in pain or worse was dead removing any hope of a safe return

Your first instinct would be does this mean my child was hurt?
They were bleeding? 
Does this mean my child was killed in the room before being removed? 

You would be demanding they recheck, they retest. 

You would be hysterical, knowing or believing the abductor could have injured your child whilst abducting her. 

You would be hysterical wondering what was done to cause the bleeding. 

You wouldn't be oh well it was a nose bleed or a grazed knee, especially given the locations. 

You would be demanding answers and more help to find your child.

You would be out physically searching, even to looking for possible drops of blood leading away from the apartment. 

Your child was hurt and scared, they were bleeding,
You want to get to them and make everything better. 
This is normal parental instinct. 

Guilty parents on the other hand would be looking for any excuse to denigrate, demean and minimise the actions of the dogs since to admit the dogs were correct would be to implicate themselves.

 Instead we get explanations and excuses.
No physical searching.
Insults and demeaning of those trying to find their daughter.
Comments all about themselves and how they feel, what they are doing and general chitchat and drivel rather than what their daughter could have been going through. 

The guilt would be enormous that their child was abducted possibly injured and they weren't there to stop it.
But then, innocent parents wouldn't have left their children home alone in the first place. 

It is well known gerry researched cadaver dogs (why?) and pointed out in the case of eugene zapata as a false reaction and thus the dogs was unreliable. Although the evidence was excluded from Zapata's first trial, police said corpse-sniffing dogs indicated the scent of human remains at the Indian Trace home and two other homes occupied by Zapata as well as a storage locker and a rental car. Based on Zapata's statement, the locker and car indications were correct.
For more than 30 years, he maintained that Jeanette Zapata just disappeared. He kept the secret until earlier this month, when he confessed to Madison police.
Zapata's confession came Feb. 5. 2008 He gave a detailed account, as required under a plea agreement he reached with prosecutors to avoid another trial
Strange to say after that the mccanns went real quiet on cadaver dogs.

 It is interesting to note that dogs are used not only to track scents they are used to detect drugs,explosives, fruit and veg, pirated DVDs, cash, human remains, trapped people in earthquake zones as well as in avalanches and much more.
Skills which are taken for granted the world over, yet, when cadaver dogs reacted in the apartment, to clothing and cuddlecat and the hire car, rather than the expected is my child hurt? we instead see, ignore the dogs they are wrong.

Their families even went so far as to claim she had dealt with several dead bodies in the weeks or so before their vacation and had included taking cuddlecat with her (the, if they don't move when she touched them with it then they are dead school of diagnosing death) sea bass (Sean's favorite meal) which allegedly produces a smell like cadaverine, rotting meat, dirty diapers and sweaty sandals and according to gerry's sister philmacakehole i mean philomena the PJ had gone so far as to plant DNA evidence from Maddie!!

This then is the other problem. 
Medical people are hyper vigilant of their children.
They know what can happen in a split second, even with a parent right there. 

The children were never left home alone. 

Each night they were all placed in one apartment and an allegedly 'sick' adult watched them. 

The parents had to claim they were neglectful and left their children home alone in order for there to be an opportunity for abduction. 

There could be no abduction if the children were being watched by an adult. 

NO NEGLECT =NO ABDUCTION  and a lot of awkward questions. 

They knew if they claimed neglect they could plea deal down.
All the lawyers they hired within days of "the abduction" would have advised them on their options and how to minimise any possible charges.

They also knew if charged with neglect, homicide charges couldn't then be a later date.
 It was the lesser of two evils, a risk they had to take, hence the PJ not knowing what crimes had been committed. 
 You can't charged someone with a they did something but we don't know what charge, and if you don't know what crime has been committed you can't charge them full stop.

The PJ knew the children were all together and thus no abduction was even possible let alone took place.
They knew they get only one chance so LE will bide their time and get as much evidence as possible before pressing charges, both charges in Portugal and also in the UK , probably relating to fraud in regard to the fund, plus they may also face criminal charges in relation to the payment from sundry newspapers,

Maddie is not as risk nor can she be further harmed for she is long dead. 

This then begs the question ,why could the mccann's not allow an autopsy to take place? 
What would it reveal? 
What was so damning they were prepared to risk neglect charges? 
Were there signs of neglect and/or abuse be it regular sedation/ injuries old and new/ sexual abuse? 

Sedation over a period of time would result in charges and loss of their licences, ditto for old and new injuries- her medical records would reveal if they had been treated in a hospital if applicable and if not, again the consensus would be they treated her at home to keep it secret and again charges, loss of licence etc. 

Sexual abuse they could face charges if they couldn't show it was committed by someone else who had access (especially if recent plus medical records could show for example frequent UTI, DP anyone?)

This would make the statements from the Dr's Gaspar important since it was both gerry and david payne having the conversation.

Whatever it was they couldn't allow an autopsy since perhaps it would show non accidental death. 

If it was from a drugs  overdose they could have claimed she saw the pills and ate them thinking it was candy, it happens all the time, 

They could have left her in bed  and then claimed they thought she was asleep when she was instead dying or dead when they checked.
   She ate some pills and went back to bed or even  dying from natural causes, a possibility given her health ( the coloboma and any associated health issues

Again, if a fall they could have placed her/ left her in situ on the floor etc and claimed they found her when they woke up.
Maddie was known to be a wanderer, and, in a strange place she could have climbed onto the sofa  or something high and fallen, they have the star chart on the fridge that showed she would wake and wander as proof.

It would be passed off as yet another tragic accident that no one could have foreseen or prevented.

Clearly this was not something that could be explained away easily.

How would they explain sedatives in the body or evidence in the hair that perhaps showed long term sedation?

How could injuries be explained away such as bruises that weren't commensurate with an accident such as hand or finger marked shaped bruising or perhaps shoe marks, scratches etc.

Marks around the throat or signs of an attempt to resuscitate  such as tracheotomy or broken ribs from CPR.

This would lead to questions as to why they never called 911 even though they were doctors.

There is still no explanation why the twins were not taken to hospital to be checked out for  sedation ( since they slept deeply through the ruckus and kate kept checking their breathing by fingers under their noses and a hand on their backs or for signs of molestation.

Innocent parents in a similar situation would be panicking if their children never awoke and would be demand tests to make sure their remaining children were not at risk from overdose or had been injured in any way.
They would also be asking for their children's clothing and bedding etc  examined in case their was any forensic evidence.

That the mccann's never did any of this makes me realise, they didn't need to have their children examined since they knew what they had been given, how much and when and that there would be no evidence of  abuse ( or they didn't want the twins examined in case there were signs of abuse which would lead to awkward questions since the time line for any possible abduction was mere minutes, how would any abductor have time to abuse the twins and then scarper with Maddie in his arms. It would lead to awkward questions, well even more awkward questions regarding the checks and the timings of or rather lack of timings)

 Was there involvement of CPS with the family prior to the vacation perhaps? ( is it still ongoing?) 

Were the family aware that kate seemed to not be coping and obsessing over their sleep patterns? 

Was it true they were looking to farm Maddie out to a family member? 

If so why? 

Had anyone offered to take over the care of Maddie?

We know they dumped Maddie on her grandparents whilst the twins had their first Christmas, was this to see how she coped?

Would this become a regular habit with Maddie staying for longer periods?

Was this a one off or something else?

 The medical records of both Maddie and kate have a big role in this i think.

Genuine woman stealing a child to care for Versus the mccann's Maddie stolen by a childless family to love and care for claim.

TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis – An hour after a woman reported her newborn son missing from a Wisconsin home, police were questioning her step-sister -- found with a prosthetic pregnancy belly, baby clothes and a stroller, but no baby, according to court documents.

It was more than 24 hours after Kayden Powell went missing before authorities discovered the infant, less than a week old, in a plastic storage crate outside an Iowa gas station, miraculously alive and well despite frigid temperatures.

Kristen Smith of Denver had pretended to be pregnant, went to Wisconsin and stole her step-sister's baby from his bassinet as his parents slept, court documents say. Then, as police closed in on her, she allegedly abandoned the infant, who was swaddled in blankets.

Federal prosecutors in Madison charged Smith with kidnapping Friday afternoon, hours after an Iowa police chief found Kayden.

"He's strong," the newborn's great-uncle, Mark Bennett, said of the boy. "I'm glad that baby is still living instead of in a ditch somewhere on a strange highway."

The discovery of the infant shortly after 10 a.m. Friday capped a frantic search that involved police officers in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa.

It began after the boy's mother, Brianna Marshall, called police around 4:30 a.m. Thursday to report her newborn had vanished from Bennett's home, where she and the baby's father, Bruce Powell, had been staying, according to police and the affidavit.

Marshall said Smith had left the house a couple of hours earlier to return to Colorado. While police were at the house, Smith called on her cellphone. She told police that Marshall and Bruce Powell were planning to move to Denver on Saturday to live with her and she had Kayden's clothes in her car but didn't have the boy.

Police told her to pull over for questioning. An officer met her at a Kum & Go gas station near Interstate 80 in West Branch, Iowa. She was arrested about 5:30 a.m. on an outstanding Texas warrant, but she denied any knowledge of Kayden's whereabouts, the affidavit says.

A search of her cellphone revealed emails in which she said she gave birth on Feb. 5, according to the court document. A search of her Facebook page turned up postings in which she claimed she was pregnant.

Smith didn't appear pregnant, according to the affidavit. A pregnancy test that was administered while she was in custody came back negative, U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil said.

Meanwhile, dozens of officers began searched for the child at possible stop-offs along Smith's route from Wisconsin to Iowa. West Branch Police Chief Mike Horihan decided to check the area around a BP station about 500 yards from the station where Smith was arrested. He heard a baby's cries and discovered Kayden in a closed storage crate alongside the building. The newborn was responsive and healthy, the chief said.

"I had tears in my eyes," BP station manager Jay Patel said, recalling his reaction to the police chief telling him that the infant had been found. "It's good news, but it's sad, too."

Temperatures in West Branch, about 180 miles southwest of the Town of Beloit, dipped below zero Thursday night into Friday. They were still in the single digits when the baby was found.

"Surprisingly with the weather the way it was, he was surprisingly healthy," Horihan, the Iowa police chief, said. "To be honest with you, that's not what I expected." The baby was taken to an Iowa City hospital, where he was reunited with his parents and released Friday evening.

Online court records didn't list a defense attorney for Smith. She faces life in prison if convicted.

Police interviewed Smith again after Kayden was discovered, the affidavit said, and she admitted she had taken the baby and left him at the BP station.

Bennett, the baby's great-uncle, told The Associated Press he first met Smith on Thursday night, when he came home and found her, his mother and the baby's mother and father in his house. He said his mother later explained to him that Marshall and her step-sister had the same father but different mothers.

He went to his room in the basement. When he woke up, the baby and Smith were gone.

He said he kept telling Marshall that Smith had to have taken the child, but Marshall refused to believe it. The baby's bassinet was 2 feet from the parents' bed and he found a paring knife on the ground next to it.

"I could have woke up to a bloody mess," Bennett said.

He said he hopes Smith gets locked up for life.

"You stole him like you're stealing something from the grocery store," the great-uncle said. "Nobody in their right mind should have thought of that."

Smith appears to go by multiple names and has had run-ins with the law in multiple states, authorities said. The Texas warrant stems from a felony indictment charging her with tampering with government documents late last year while she was in jail in Colorado.

A spokesman for the Arapahoe County, Colo., sheriff's office declined to discuss the details of her arrest there. A spokeswoman for the district attorney's office in Tarrant County, Texas, said it's not clear why Colorado authorities released Smith instead of sending her back to Texas.
 This is a classic example of a child abduction by a woman desperate to have a baby for whatever reason such as infertility, miscarriage etc. 
 The age is right as they can pass the child off as their own after a faked pregnancy.
They often go to extremes to pretend pregnancy as can be seen in this case.
Most times the baby is found as family members and relatives notice unusual behavior by the 'mother' and have heard about an infant abduction. 
Abduction by a childless woman is not going to mean grabbing a nearly 4 yr old toddler who can talk, 
There is no way in hell they could claim they just gave birth, a 57 month pregnancy is unusual, in fact, extremely rare in humans, 
Abduction of a child by a mentally healthy woman is rare especially these days with advances in IVF, adoption and even fostering. 
Some countries offer free IVF for a number of cycles, making it unlikely they will steal a child. 
Abduction by gypsies is so medieval, just read the fairy stories. 
Why steal a child when you can legally buy one if you want a child of a certain color, you can definitely illegally buy one if you have nefarious deeds in mind as we have seen all too often in the media.
 This then leaves us with either abduction by paedophile in which case she is long dead  or parental involvement , in which case she is also long dead.
Paedophiles usually grab from outside rather than indoors due to the risk of being caught by a parent or other responsible adult and the forensic evidence they would leave behind.
They will not abduct a dead child or abuse, murder/accidentally kill the child and then take the body with them since it is pretty damn hard to hide a body when they could leave it in situ and make for a speedy getaway. 
This leaves us then with the most common crime abuse/killing by a parent/family member/someone known to the family with access to the child. 
Since we have evidence that there was a dead body in the apartment and Maddie is missing, the obvious and logical answer, is, Maddie died in the apartment. 
We then need to ask why did Maddie die and how? 
Int the majority of cases it is from neglect or abuse either over a long period of time , the proverbial red-headed step child who is blamed for all the family woes or when the parent loses their temper and lashes out. 
Other options often seen, particularly with mothers with mental health issues is altruistic death, the child is sick and they put it out of its misery.
The parent doesn't want to leave the child parent less/motherless if suicide is contemplated.
Religious reasons as in they think they are saving the child soul from the devil, or the classic custody battles where one parent decides if i can't have them no one can. 
I exclude the latter since they were not divorcing ( that i know of) however, given kate's warnings, should divorce be a possibility or separation then the twins will likely be at risk. 
Of all the options i go with, either altruistic ( not my first choice) 
Custodial ( not likely) 
Long term neglect and abuse a la red headed step child as she was very demanding and had a temper etc so she would be blamed when things went wrong, or, loss of temper and ether deliberate killing or accidental killing (both of which are my choices)
If she didn't bond with Maddie then we have the neglect and the loss of temper conclusions and motive.
It is worth noting that after Maddie vanished, rather than the haunted laden down with fear, guilt, weight on her shoulders as we see in genuine abduction cases of children, instead kate blossomed as if a weight had been lifted from her shoulders.
Maddie gone meant the end of all her problems, she could now live the perfect life with the perfect family.
We only saw the stress, the haggard face etc only when the LE in 2 countries reopened/opened the case and the libel trial was going catastrophically wrong for them as well as public belief in them and media belief going downhill fast (the media actually allowing negative comments to be posted)
Kate seemed to be obsessed with their sleeping patters which might explain the sedation. 
When they were asleep she could cope and they were safe. 
I note also the fact that it seems she was unable to cope and had lots of family coming down to help, even to taking Maddie away from her for the twins first Christmas although it was explained as sending her away (positive spinning the fact that she wasn't allowed to share in the twins first Christmas which in anyone's head is a red flag leading to questions why it happened)
Was it a case of don't leave her alone with kids ever because of what might happen, and when they did, the result was a dead Maddie and the biggest cover up in history
