​McCann Investigator Claims To Know Where And How She Died

​McCann Investigator Claims To Know Where And How She Died

It's been over 10 years since the disappearance of Madeleine McCann - who went missing from the resort Praia da Luz in Portugal back in 2007- and yet it still remains one of the biggest mysteries of recent times.

But one criminalist has said that he has 'no doubt' that Kate and Gerry McCann's daughter died in the apartment.

Speaking to Portuguese website Flash!, Moita Flores - who was once involved with the Judiciary Police that conducted the initial search - said: "It was impossible to pass in that window with a child, Maddie died in that house."

He added: "The secret is in that group of people and in the parents who are influential people in the British government."

Flores is a Portuguese crime expert, researcher and writer, whose beliefs also mirror those of police chief Goncalo Amaral, the Daily Mail reports.

Flores continued: "With the 96,000 euros made available by the British government, they did a reconstitution in Praia da Luz, which is the only way to solve the case."

Madeleine McCann 10 Years On: Where Are We Now?

Since Madeleine's disappearance on 3 May 2007, when her parents Kate and Gerry were out having a meal with friends, a worldwide search has been conducted.

Last month the Metropolitan Police were believed to have approached the Home Office to appeal for extra funds, according to reports from the Daily Mirror.

So far, government funding for the investigation has been agreed every six months. The last funding given to the Met Police in relation to the investigation saw £154,000 ($215,000) being granted from October last year until the end of March this year.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "The Home Office has provided funding to the Metropolitan Police for Operation Grange and the resources required are reviewed regularly with careful consideration given before any new funding is allocated."

Speaking on behalf of Madeleine's parents, Clarence Mitchell said: "The Met Police will put in a further request for funds if they feel work still needs to be done.

"Money in the Madeleine Fund gives Kate and Gerry the option to pick up their own inquiries again, if they choose, with private investigators."

Last May, Madeleine's parents posted a birthday message on the Facebook page for the official campaign to find her, saying: "Happy 14th Birthday, Madeleine! We love you and we're waiting for you and we're never going to give up."

Madeleine would be 15 this May.
