Madeleine McCann

In 2007 it was reported across the entire media network that a young girl called Madeleine McCann had gone missing while on holiday with her family and their friends in Praia Da Luz, Portugal. What followed was a massive investigation, during which police suggested the child had been abducted. A search of the area began, but unfortunately no trace of Madeleine. On 07/10/2007, the Sunday Mirror reported that the McCann's had hired Krugel to help with the search for their missing daughter Madeleine. Upon arrival, Krugel was handed a hairbrush containing the hairs of Madeleine for him to use with his KTT machine. The Sunday Mirror said that Krugel used " cutting-edge technology" to "led Portuguese police to an area of beach 500 yards from where she vanished". The article then goes on to report that the police sealed off the area that Krugel had indicated, but the police never began digging to search for Madeleine's body. If the police believed Krugel to the point where they sealed off the area, why would they not begin digging? The answer is simple, the science doesn't add up.
