Prosecutors have officially named a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of 4-year-old British girl Madeleine McCann
· Apr 22, 2022 ·

Pretty much the entire world heard about the disappearance of British girl Madeleine McCann, who vanished from her family's hotel room during a 2007 vacation when she was four years old.

Theories and suspicions have swirled for years regarding the case. Now, Portuguese prosecutors claim they've zeroed in on a suspect in the disappearance:

A suspect has been formally identified in the case of missing British toddler Madeleine McCann, according to a statement by the Prosecutor's Office in Faro, Portugal.

The man has been made an official suspect by German authorities at the request of Portuguese authorities, but the Faro prosecutors did not name him publicly. He has not yet been charged.

Who's the suspect? They're not saying yet, but there is speculation that it may be a German man earlier thought to have been connected to the case:

German prosecutors revealed in June 2020 that they had evidence that a man jailed for another crime, named as Christian B. at the time, killed the British toddler, but said there was not enough evidence to charge the suspect in court. In June 2020, the spokesman for the State Prosecutor's Office of Braunschweig, in the state of Lower-Saxony, told CNN his office assumes McCann is dead.

But since then the 45-year-old suspect has not been charged with any crime relating to the disappearance. He is behind bars in Germany for raping a woman in the same area of the Algarve region where Madeleine went missing in 2007.

The suspect's lawyer, Friedrich Fülscher, confirmed to CNN Friday that he was still representing the suspect, confirming his name to be Christian Brueckner.

Pray that this case gets solved, whoever is behind Madeleine's disappearance goes to prison, and above all that the family gets closure.
