Pat Brown you are making a complete and utter ass of yourself… Stop trying to solve cases and use your metal detector for good purpose, like finding ring pull cans, or dropped euros, and if all else fails you could search for Coldwater’s piece of “Sheet Metal”.
But honestly love you are no good as a detective, another piece I will debunk…
“If it could be proved that Gerry McCann was at the dinner table in the Tapas restaurant between 9.15 and 9.55” (when a man looking apparently very much like Gerry McCann was seen by an Irish family carrying a child in pink pyjamas over his shoulder as he walked in the direction of the beach) “then that would be proof that there was an abduction”.
From the PJ Final report
Further on this issue, the testimony of MARTIN SMITH was considered, pages 1606 and following, reporting the sighting of an individual carrying a child, in one of the streets that lead to the beach. It was said that the child could be MADELEINE McCANN, although it was never peremptorily stated. Some time later, the witness alleged that, by its stance, the individual who carried the child could be GERALD McCANN, which was concluded when he saw him descending the stairs from an airplane, pages 2871, 3991 and following and 4135 and following. It was established that at the time that was being mentioned, GERALD McCANN was sitting at the table, in the Tapas Restaurant.
Concerning the facts under investigation, on the 3rd of May, he went with his family to the Dolphin restaurant in Praia da Luz where they dined. Around 21H00 they left the restaurant and headed toward ‘Kelly’s Bar’; about a 50 metre distance from the restaurant, following the path, as it is very short. The walk took him a few minutes. In ‘Kelly’s Bar’ they consumed some drinks. They left that establishment around 21H55 as his son would be travelling very early the next day. This bar is located on Calheta Street.
— After leaving the bar, he travelled in the opposite direction and reached a set of stairs which gave access to Rua 25 de Abril (25th of April Street). On this artery they followed a second street, parallel to Rua 1 de Maio (1st of May Street) whose name he does not remember. He was heading toward his apartment (Estrela da Luz complex) which is located a little above the street Travessa da Escola Primária (Primary school crossing). As he reached this artery, he saw an individual carrying a child, who walked normally and fitted in perfectly in that area, in that it is common to see people carrying children, at least during the holiday season. This individual was walking the downward path, in the opposite direction to him and his companions. He is not aware where this person was headed. He only saw him as they passed each other. He assumed it was a father and daughter, not raising any suspicion.
This is further confirmed by Aoife Smith in their statement:
Regarding the 3rd of May, 2007, she went, with all her family, to eat at the Dolphin restaurant, which is close to Kelly’s Bar. When they left the restaurant, around 21H30, they headed toward Kelly’s Bar. They stayed there for about 30 minutes.
— Around 22H00, they left Kelly’s Bar. The group headed, on foot, for their apartment.
And is even corroborated by another member of the Smith family, Peter in his statement:
He would like to clarify that on the 3rd of May, he and his family went to the Dolphin restaurant, situated in Praia da Luz, where they dined. Around 21H00 they left the restaurant and went to Kelly’s Bar, about one minute away on foot. In Kelly’s Bar (he does not remember the name of the street it is on) they had a few drinks, having left from there around 21H50/22H00.
So we have at least 3 witnesses stating that they saw the man with the child after they left Kelly’s Bar at approximately 9.50 to 10 pm in the evening of the 3rd May 2007 and the PJ confirming in their Final Report that the man they saw COULD NOT be Gerry McCann, yet Pat Brown is insistent unless it is proven that it was not Gerry means that it was not an abduction.
Pat I am going to say this slowly and loudly for you.
THE PJ CONFIRMED (AS PER THE FINAL REPORT) THAT THE MAN THE SMITH FAMILY SAW WAS NOT GERRY MCCANN BECAUSE HE WAS SITTING IN THE TAPAS RESTAURANT AT THE TIME THE SMITH FAMILY SAW THIS MAN.
Seriously did this woman do any research before she went jet-setting off to Praia da Luz?
