I watched a video the other day - Gerry McCann justified the spending of fund money by claiming they employed a team of private investigators that was led by one man, Dave Edgar. Turns out that the team consisted of just one man, one leader. Crowley and Edgar. And they've not been employed for months...
Yep, according to the Sunday Express...
Kate and Gerry McCann are no longer employing private detectives to search for their missing daughter Madeleine.
The Sunday Express understands the McCanns stopped using former police detectives Dave Edgar and Arthur Cowley some months ago when their contract ran out.
So, how long is 'some months'? How long is a piece of string?... Did their employ end when the review started? If so, that's a little more than 'some months'.
The 'source' felt the need to tell us “there was no fall-out.” and that they felt the search should be left to Scotland Yard. They said there was no fall-out when Doug Skehan and brother, John McCann (directors of the fund) also departed. Oh, how abandoning ship is done on such good terms these days.
If the McCanns are not funding a search for Madeleine, why then are they still asking for funding to search on their Official Facebook page? In fact, they've specifically pointed out that they've made it easier for the gullible to donate when buying things from their online store. How kind.
High time this 'fund' and private investigation was scrutinised once and for all. The public should be made fully aware that this is the McCanns' own private company of which they sit as directors and decide how the money is spent. If they want to boost their balance, they should do what every other owner of a small business does - damn well work for it. Their 'business plan' should be laughed into next week. Unfortunately it isn't, and the naive and gullible really believe they are funding a search for their daughter. A daughter they didn't even look for themselves.
Pointed out on Twitter this morning - how can the McCanns' search be hindered by the publications of Goncalo Amaral and Tony Bennett when there is no funded search or investigators? True... their claims have no standing in court and it would appear that the McCanns themselves are hindering their own search by not renewing their own investigator's contract.
Are the McCanns searching themselves then? Nope, everything is hunky dory as they holiday in Ireland. Edgar's wages didn't stretch too far, did they? Apparently they're residing in a remote cottage somewhere. It must be some distance to the nearest pub, let's hope history doesn't repeat itself.
