The True Story of Madeleine McCann

eddie_howlI just finished watching this more than four hour documentary on the truth about Madeleine McCann, the three-year-old British girl who was allegedly kidnapped in Portugal in 2007. According to this meticulous documentary (that’s why it’s four hours long – the story itself could be told in an hour, but laying out all the proofs took a while), the parents’ story is false and the British government and media helped cover up the truth. It’s a gripping tale and one you can listen to without watching if it’s more convenient. (h/t JJ)

After watching the documentary, I was left wanting to know more about WHY this story unfolded the way it did and what really happened. The only source would be the Portuguese investigator who wrote a book on the subject called The Truth of the Lie. At the time of the documentary, the book was translated into every major European language except, bizarrely, English. I just found a site with the book in English. Click here for that.
