They wake up
in the morning and Maddie is dead.
They couldn't wake her u.

Maddie is taken to hospital and declared DOA,
lots of crying, warnings to never leave pills in view, keep them locked up and out of
reach end of story.
Another option could be they find her dead behind the sofa of a head injury or broken neck.
They could claim she must have woken up early gone to get a drink, have a play or just look out the window.
They didn't see or hear her because they had drunk too much the night before and were sleeping the sleep of the inebriated.
they wake, they check on the children and Maddie is not in her bed.
search finds her on the floor dead, one calls 911 and the other performs
CPR as parental instinct, especially kate, would refuse to accept she
was dead even though they are doctors.
Lots of crying, bit of news in the
paper and end of story.
Since they lied about who
was doing what checks if any, removed Maddie's body from the apartment
and claimed abduction, the obvious conclusion is that it was non
Gerry said "The ludicrous thing is that
Madeleine died in the apartment by an accident and we hid her body,"
Well, when did she have the accident and die? 'Cause the only time she
was left unattended was when we were at dinner, so if she died then, how
could we have disposed of or hidden her body? You know, when there was
an immediate search?
"It's just nonsense! And if she died when we were in the apartment, or fell, why would we cover that up?"
Here he tells us it was not an accident.
Had it been an accident, they would not have covered it up.
Since they covered it up it had to be non accidental.
"The ludicrous thing is that Madeleine died in the apartment by an accident and we hid her body,"
Here he tells us that Maddie having an accident and dying in the apartment is ludicrous.

We can then discount accidental death in the apartment.
If it was non accidental that means it was deliberate, premeditated

deliberately inflicted on a child or an old person
This leads to the question of what was being done to Maddie that caused a non accidental injury or death.
Then we need to learn who was with Maddie when it happened
Then we need to learn who removed and concealed Maddie's body.
we need to learn who knew, or at least had a good idea of what happened,?
Who was involved and took part in the subsequent cover up which is
Friendships change over time,
Your best friend today can be your worst enemy tomorrow.
Secrets are not secrets if more than one person knows.
Money can only buy silence for so long.
Blackmail doesn't work, one day the victim will decide enough is enough and speak out.
A crime once done cannot be undone.
Too many people know the guilty truth, and guilt will eat away at them day after day.
Always wondering of today is the day the truth comes out?
to bed each night wondering if there will be an early morning knock on
Wondering if the people they see in the streets are undercover
Wondering if their phones and computers are being tapped?
For the mccanns, the wondering if the twins remember what happened or remember overheard arguments or discussions?
fear the twins will leak something to friends or teachers or worse
decide to have a friendly little chat with the police either English or
There is also the fear that push comes
to shove and either gerry or kate (more likely kate) will decide to end
the charade and confess.
They are both trapped in a loveless marriage, a marriage in trouble even before the alleged abduction.
Even though they profess to be catholic,do they go to church regularly?
couldn't divorce since there would likely be a row over custody and it
could end up with one throwing the other under the bus, willing to
effectively do a plea deal, kate perhaps claiming diminished
responsibility or PND.
Their friends who seemingly
no longer remain in close contact could decide they are sick of the
guilt and speak out or maybe tempted by a reward and/or megabucks from
the media for their stories if they weren't actually involved.
Tick tock kate and gerry. Tick tock.
