    I've seen Kate cry a handful of times. I've never seen Gerry show any sign of distress whatosever.

    He's extremely collected in all interviews but is prone to outburst of rage. Psychopath? They sure are signs for us criminologists.
    I haven't seen her cry, I've seen her pull a sad face but I've never actually seen her tear up, atleast not how I'd expect a mother to tear up. He is very, very, very cold.

    It is an extremely tragic situation. To be perfectly honest I hope that she is dead, rather than being held captive by a monster for 9 years. God knows what he/she could of been doing to her...
    I agree, I would hope the same thing.

    Ms Matthews was an appalling underclass person who would have had trouble being accepted on the Jeremy Kyle show. Madeleine's parents are normal middle class people.

    Why would they want to kill her also if they had killed her by accident how would they have disposed of the body without someone seeing as they were surrounded by people? I would say that someone was watching and knew she was not being looked after. Then quickly snuck in picked her up and just made off with her. Then he killed her and then dumped her at sea.

    I don't think the parents had anything to do with it. I think they would have let it go by now if they had done to be honest, not try and put themselves more and more in the frame. I dunno what happened to her, I think she's dead though but I think she was taken and the parents had nothing to do with it but that's just my view.
    Once you've dug a sufficiently deep hole for yourselves, the only thing you can do is keep digging because of the consequences if you stop.

    "We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately" applies, and keeps many parents guilty of being responsible for a child's death together.

    Personally, I think it's wonderful that their marriage has survived when so many do not after an abduction or accidental death that was nothing to do with the parents. It would have been so easy to go 'Well you said we didn't need a babysitter, even after she woke up the previous night!' 'Get lost, you didn't think we needed to stop drinking for a few minutes to check on her...' etc.

    What absolute saints they must be.

    Just watched the TED lecture on body language.

    Gerry is a smug liar.

    That 'Duping Delight' thing is a 100% indicator of deceit.

    The little ****!

    How foresighted of the murderer to use the McCann's car so that a specialist police dog trained to respond to the scent of a human cadaver would detect it later and to go back in their room so that there would be 'dead body' scent to be picked up by it there, and enough human blood for another dog trained to respond to that...

    ... no wonder the mysterious murderer has never been found. They're too clever.

    I personally believe the McCann's know exactly what happened to Madaline.The whole question of morality, add in huge amounts sympathy for the parents who made a little mistake and lost their child forever seems like a rather genius plan.

    I honestly have never seen the Mccann's shed a tear, their interviews seem so forced and scripted, when they forget their scripts they mumble. I mean, if my daughter disappeared like that, I think I would be visibly broken.

    Also, I saw the panorama on Madeline a couple of days ago, and the night she vanished the McCann's were having dinner with a couple they made friends with, the woman who they befriended believes she saw a man with a jacket and long dark hair to the neck (typical dark and mysterious description of a sex offender) carrying a child in an odd fashion, she stuttered and honestly it seems very suspicious.
    who cares? shes gone and just a waste of taxpayers money

    I want to know why Gerry disposed of the fridge from the villa then He went out of his way to buy a new fridge when the owner should have done it. Gerry wrote about it on his blog before delating it and denied all knowledge of it. Odd thing to do when your child is missing.
