McCann Suspect Finds Allegations Stressful

( – A key suspect in the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann is reportedly struggling to cope with allegations that he abducted the child. An anonymous source told the Sun that in conversations with friends, Christian Brueckner said he finds it difficult to be accused of participating in “one of the most famous crimes in the world.”

The German national apparently finds it unfair that investigators refuse to share any supposed evidence with him and feels he is being unfairly targeted. “He is behind bars for crimes he has already been convicted of committing,” the source explained. “But I think he forgets there is a family out there who has lost their little girl.”

Madeleine McCann went missing from Praia da Luz, a Portuguese vacation destination, over 16 years ago. Investigators initially suspected her own parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, of playing a role in her disappearance. However, they shifted focus to other leads, including Bruekner, after failing to conclusively link the pair to the incident. Portuguese police have since apologized for implicating them in the first place.

German authorities launched a search operation that involved digging up terrain near Arade reservoir in Portugal in early 2023. At the time, they suspected that Bruekner, who was camping in the area at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance, may have taken pictures of the little girl, stored them on USB drives, and buried them in the area.

Brueckner, who is already serving time in prison for the sexual assault of a 72-year-old American tourist, has an alleged history of taking “trophies” from his victims. However, German authorities failed to turn up any evidence near the reservoir during their search, and the public prosecutor overseeing the case has since urged caution in expecting definitive results.

The convicted felon, who is known to German courts as just “Christian B,” reportedly maintains his innocence, as does his legal team. In fact, the same unidentified source told the Sun that his lawyers nicknamed the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance a “fruitless search.”

Bruekner’s upcoming trials for several alleged sexual assaults near Praia da Luz add complexity to the case. The 44-year-old faces charges related to at least five other sex crimes, including an attack on a young girl and a prolonged assault on a young woman. Furthermore, he is accused of recording at least two other assaults at a farmhouse he rented in the area.
