I still say the limeys did it

I thought I'd try to be a bit topical today. I was just looking through CNN and saw that the Portuguese police are finally going to close the case on Madeleine McCann. Frankly, it's probably well past time since they've been beating that dead horse for ages. There hasn't been a lead that's provided any new information in at least a year. I followed along pretty closely in the early days of the investigation and I'm still with those who say the parents did it. As much as movies and thriller novels would like to make us think otherwise, strangers don't usually walk into other people's homes and wander off with their children. The fact that the parents just happen to have left a freaking three year old and a pair of two year olds by themselves in a house so they could go out drinking with friends just tells you that something's not quite kosher. Seriously, who the fuck does something like that anyway?

The real kicker as far as I'm concerned is that no body was ever found. That really does suggest that whoever offed the kid had plenty of time to plan and dispose. I've never bought those assertions that some ring of pedophiles kidnapped her for use in their toddler sex rings. I mean, there are craploads of kids out there and probably poor parents willing to sell them to you. You'd have to be a complete idiot to swipe the kid of a tourist if you wanted to get away with the crime. Even if it were some sort of impulse snatch and grab, it's just hard to believe that you could dispose of the body so well in a short period of time that it's never found without any sort of planning. My personal theory is the kid kicked the bucket, likely through overdose or child abuse, and the parents pitched her into the ocean with a fisher price anchor tied around her neck. I have no good evidence for that idea but there's just no possibility of this being a stranger abduction and murder. The police supposedly found faint traces of her blood in the house. What kinda freak who just happens to walk past a house wanders in, kills/bloodies a kid, cleans up after themselves, and then carries the body out the door with them?

In the end, we'll never know exactly what happened. It's like the John Benet Ramsey case all over again. It's odd, but in that situation I believed the parents had notta to do with it. I dunno why exactly but something about the McCann's just give me the willies. I just don't like them nor find them trustworthy in any way. At least with all this publicity we can be pretty sure they won't kill their remaining kids. Well, not without an airtight alibi ready anyway.
