Tasha & Lora, I hope I've not offended either of you by talking about the photo of the McCanns smiling & saying it seemed weird. I wasn't suggesting you shouldn't smile after losing a child, I have know idea what it's like & I don't mean to judge or say what's right or wrong, (I wasn't implying that the McCanns should NEVER smile) it was just....that picture.....something about it seems very awkward to me, IDK.
And then down the right side, one of the last few pictures, Gerry's smile especially on her birthday.....IDK. I'm not in a position to comment on how one behaves when losing a child - well, in their case, not knowing if their child is dead or alive, but that photo to me is strange.
What I found very odd I know its kind of a weird observation but on days after maddy disappearing she always swapped and changed earrings and accessorized which I think is very odd the last thing I would be doing is stupid things like that, it would be a quick shower brush teeth change clothes and back out looking or helping in anyway I could if it was either of my boys!!!
Also, unfortunately even when tragedy strikes or we're grieving sometimes we do smile. Sometimes we do feel happy.. I wouldn't take them grinning as anything other than it was a nice day or they were thinking of nice memories about Madeleine. I hate when people are like "omg they're smiling - guilty!". All they'd be guilty of is being human
I didn't say smiling makes them guilty - far from it - but if you see the photos I'm referring to (posted a link a few posts ago) I just think there's something 'not right' there. Doesn't make them guilty though - you don't know the context of it, but it's one of those things where when it's combined with all the other inconsistancies & blatent changes of story that really makes me question their 'story'.
Reading extracts from her book online someone pointed out that Kate mentioned searching for Maddie in undergrowth.....yet at another time she'd said she'd not searched for her herself. Things like that make NO sense to me - that's not something you would get confused over. I don't care how much stress you were under, you wouldn't. To me that's something you do when you're covering & you 'forget' your story.
And as for selective deletion of phone records....something to hide?
i glanced through the sun n read something about a book being left open in the place they were eating n in it stating they needed certain seats because they would be leaving their children n needed to keep checking them !!!!!
i just dont get why you would leave them??? the oldest person in the room was madeline so the twins were in her care???????? is it 'normal' practice to leave children in places like that when your on holiday? either way i would definatly not my daughter is 17 n ive only just started leaving my 7yr old with her for half hr while i go to the shop!!
something about it all just dosent sit right with me, i dont know if the parents were involved, but leaving them like that was neglect,what if there had been a fire?? they wouldnt be getting sympathy then, i also dont beliieve she will ever be found either, i feel so sorry for madeline as for the twins its all very publc n they will know when they are older they shouldnt of been alone
