Christian Brueckner, the main suspect in the kidnapping and killing of Madeleine McCannon a beach in the south of Portugal on May 3, 2007, he wrote a letter from his prison in Germany where he denies the accusations and indicates that there is a plan to give him a cheating by prosecutors investigating his involvement in the shocking case that ensnared the UKand the entire world for more than 15 years.
The epistle , accessed by The Mirror newspaper, was written by Brueckner from his cell in Wolfenbüttel. “There is no proof that he committed any of these crimes. There is no DNA, nothing”, defended the pedophile sentenced to seven years in prison for another crime committed in the same tourist area where Maddie disappeared in 2007.
“At the time some of these crimes are supposed to have occurred, I was in prison. The prosecution is trying to catch me and expect me to give up under the mental pressure. They expect me to say 'yes' to everything, which will give me a chance to escape this mental torture,” Brueckner wrote. “Certainly, there is no proof. Of course not, because I have not committed any of these crimes”.
Finally, according to what was collected by the English media, the criminal defended himself against other accusations of having raped a teenage girl and two other women: “No one knows who these people are and what has happened to them. No name, no nationality, nothing. Maybe the victims went to the moon for a while”, he quipped.

Last year, German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolter said investigators have sufficient evidence to bring charges against Brueckner, but that they “first want to strengthen their position.” According to statements to the press, he said that his team was “100 percent convinced” that the British girl was killed by Brueckner .
Brueckner first brought Madeleine's disappearance to the attention of the authorities in 2017, after he allegedly told a friend that he “knew everything” about what had happened to him. had happened. The tip is said to have piqued the interest of the Metropolitan Police in Brueckner.
Investigators eventually caught Brueckner for a series of rapes from 2005 to 2018, arrested him in Italy for skipping parole and extradited him to Germany to stand trial. He was sentenced at the end of 2019 to seven years in prison.
