HEARTBROKEN Kate McCann is pleading with the widow of a dead paedophile to break her silence in the hunt for snatched daughter Madeleine.She has snubbed requests to reveal secrets? This woman has done nothing wrong, yet she is said to be the keeper of secrets that can help Kate McCann discover what happened to her daughter.
But Mariana Schmuecker – herself a mother of six -has snubbed FOUR requests to reveal secrets about her husband, convicted child rapist Raymond Hewlett.
Detectives believe what she knows could hold the vital key to their investigation.Believe. Could. Such are the facts. And these detectives are the McCanns’ private detectives.
When the News of the World confronted her the callous German just snarled: “Clear off! I’m sick to death of hearing about Maddie McCann!”She is labelled callous because she does not want to talk about a missing child to the tabloid press?
SUN: Why don’t you eliminate yourself from the inquiry for the sake of the McCanns?He added:
HEWLETT: I don’t have to speak to you. F*** off.
And then there is this:
A source close to the McCanns told us: “Through detectives Kate has begged Mariana to speak out and hopes she will do the right thing. As a mother herself you’d think she’d want to help.”As another, she may take exception to being called “callous” and having her name linked to a missing child.
A source close to the investigation said: “Our detectives are pretty certain Mariana knows a lot about Hewlett’s background and activities. That would open up doors to paedophile networks in the Algarve.Raymond Hewlett was never a suspect. He was a person of interest to the McCanns.
And not, as it seems, without due cause.
“They never explained how they could move from country to country with the children despite having no passports.”How do we know they have no passports?
