If it were an accident, and accidents do happen, even if the parents are right next to the child, they would not have been charged with anything.
If it had been an accident that caused Maddie's death, why would the tapas 7 go into silent mode?
If it had been an accident why not call emergency services?
If it had been an accident why would they not want an autopsy performed?
had been say, an accidental overdose, they could have claimed Maddie
ate the pills thinking it was candy whilst kate was having her first
shower or, she woke up to pee, found the pills and ate them then went
back to bed.
They carried on with their 'checks' seeing her in bed and thought she was sleeping and found her dead the next day in bed.
The same thing as above except, Maddie woke up, went into the sitting room and died behind the sofa.
They woke up and didn't see Maddie in her bed, they searched the apartment and found her dead behind the sofa.
either case they would have called 911 even though they were doctors in
the hope that perhaps their daughter wasn't dead (even when it is clear
the child is dead blue,cold etc, a parent will always hope their child
is still alive due to parental instinct, especially moms)
the children were all being babysat by the missing adult, they could
have claimed Maddie ate some pills found somewhere and the result as
We regularly hear about children being poisoned or dying because they ate a liquitab laundry detergent or ate some of the parents prescription pills, or even they ingested some of the parents illegal drugs or methadone
It was an accident and no charges would or could have been laid against anyone.
There may have been some condemnation for leaving pills or poisonous substances lying around in reach of a child, especially since they were both doctors, on the whole though there would have been sympathy.
If it had been an accidental overdose, questions may have been asked by the GMC as to why they had such drugs in their possession if if wasn't an OTC medicine, why it was not kept secure and out of the reach of children, if it was a prescription medication why it was needed and how did the children get access to it?
The GMC would probably slap their wrist and tell them don't do it again or, at worst, have them supervised for a period of time or undergo retraining.
The practice where kate worked may ask she undergo retraining and be supervised for whatever length of time.
They would still employ her as she had done nothing wrong.Friendships could have ended or been strained as the mccanns blamed the babysitter for not paying
enough attention, leaving toxic substances within reach possibly, given the litigious nature of kate and gerry, suing said babysitter or, their own marriage, which was already on the
rocks, would have probably ended as each blamed the other for Maddie's
What happened to Maddie that was so bad, they could not allow emergency services to try and help her?What happened to Maddie that was so bad, they could not allow an autopsy to be performed?
If Maddie was killed deliberately or accidentally by a member of the tapas 7 why would they not call emergency services and allow an autopsy to be performed?
The parents could have claimed ignorance of the peccadilloes of one of the group and are as shocked and horrified as everyone else, that the person they trusted to look after their children could have killed one.
They would have no reason to be deceptive and uncooperative if they didn't know or suspect one of their friends was a danger to their children.
Had Maddie been sexually abused by one or more of the group and the mccanns didn't know, they would have no need to be deceptive and uncooperative.
The mccanns would have a reason to be deceptive and uncooperative if they knew what was happening to Maddie and possibly other children and did nothing to prevent such deeds, protect their children or failed to report the perpetrator.
The mccanns would have a reason to be deceptive and uncooperative if they themselves, either one or both were physically abusing Maddie.The mccanns would have a reason to be deceptive and uncooperative if they themselves, either one or both were sexually abusing Maddie.
The autopsy would have revealed the truth, something they could not allow to happen.
Signs of long term and ongoing sedation, samples of hair would reveal such and what drugs were used.
Blood samples would reveal if Maddie had been sedated ( they would also then want hair samples and blood samples from the twins, this would help in part to explain why they refused the twins to be taken to hospital to be checked out and then having their hair cut months later)
When anything is introduced into a statement it means it is sensitive to the subject, they have a reason to include it, the trick is to find out why the subject felt the need to include it in their statement
Signs of long term and ongoing physical abuse such as scars, broken and healed bones, cuts and bruises would have prompted questions and demands to see the children's medical records to see if they had been to ER or seen their own doctor (especially if she had a coloboma which can also have other associated health issues, health issues that can be a result of her just being an IVF baby, or other health issues such as autism)
All of which could partly explain physical injuries.
Signs of long term or ongoing sexual abuse which could never be explained away as accidental.
Things such as repeated urinary tract infections, injuries to the genitalia and/or anus.
All of which would have lead to awkward questions of the parents and their friends and those who had access to the children.
It all comes back to:
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A HOMICIDE?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY NOT CALL 911?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY HIDE HER BODY?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY FILE A FALSE POLICE REPORT?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY REFUSE TO ANSWER ALL 48 QUESTIONS ASKED OF KATE?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY INVOLVE THE TAPAS 7 IN THE SUBSEQUENT COVER UP?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY REFUSE TO TAKE PART IN AN OFFICIAL POLICE RECONSTRUCTION?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY HIRE HIGH PRICED LAWYERS AND, EXTRADITION LAWYERS?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY SUE THE NOW EX-LEAD DETECTIVE IN THE CASE,
ANTHONY BENNETT AND THREATEN TO SUE PRETTY MUCH THE REST OF THE WORLD?
IF IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, WHY THE NEED TO LIE?
