The police even knocked on his door following Madeleine’s disappearance, but Brückner was not at home and they never called again.
Now, about 13 years later, German police have identified Brückner, now 43, as the main suspect in the McCann case and say they have evidence that the girl died and that the convicted pedophile “did the wrong thing.” ‘act’.
He has so far denied these allegations, but it is understood that he was not formally questioned in connection with the case.
Brückner is currently in drug jail and is appealing a rape conviction for an attack on a 72-year-old American tourist in Praia da Luz in 2005. His hearing is expected in the coming weeks.
