Will an unpleasant truth come out in the search for Madeleine McCann? It seems that this is something that her parents may fear, judging by their reaction to a book containing claims made by Goncalo Amaral. Amaral famously led the original investigation into Maddie's mysterious disappearance the better half of a decade ago. They are reportedly doing their best to "shield their twins" from the things that are said within this book. Could that be because they don't want the children to be subject to what might be the truth? Certainly these two children have been groomed throughout the years to believe their parents' shaky version of the events that took place.
The truth of what happened to Maddie may never be known, but the evidence as it's known only indicates guilt when it comes to the child's parents. The mother has refused to answer questions since the night the girl vanished, and both of the parents have refused polygraph tests. Cadaver dogs have long incriminated this family as well. Nonetheless, the UK has protected them since they pretty much fled Portugal as suspects in the disappearance of their own little girl.
Hopefully SY investigators in Portugal uncover the actual truth in this case -- and hopefully they have the honesty and common decency to do the right thing when that time comes instead of the thing that saves face after flubbing up this case for so many years.
