Joseph Moura (JM): …a lot of facts in this case are not available, those facts are held strictly by the police, but as an investigator and looking into this situation, there’s many ways to skin a cat, I mean you certainly…
JM (speaking to Tapas bartender): “Hello, a gente paga quando vem para trás, ok?”
JM (speaking to Tapas waiter): “Hey, how are you?”
Gerry McCann (GM): It’s a similar scenario to dining in your garden, we were very close…
Peter Von Sant (PVS): You sat at the very table where the McCanns were eating and drinking, correct?
JM: And more than once, yes.
PVS: Could you see those sliding doors?
VO: After befriending employees...
VO: …Moura uncovered important details of the McCanns and their friends’ dinner routine… [here the video seems to have been cut off] …important details of the McCanns and their friends’ dinner routine.
JM: Their routine was similar, they arrived at 08:30 for dinner and then they would stay until 12, 12:30 am. We even know, for example, how many bottles of wine they had…
PVS: How many?
VO: Joe Moura is not the only person focusing in on the McCanns’ nightly routine at the Ocean Club…
JM (speaking to Tapas waiter): “…relaxed and smiling today, how are you?”
JM: My strategy was to first build confidence, I had to infiltrate, you know what I mean?
JM: They had a table reserved for the nine of them every evening…
JM: That was the routine.
JM: No, the routine was just adults.
GM: We actually checked on the children extremely regularly, we did not leave them alone…
JM: No. But the witnesses are saying that there was one male who did get up and walked in the direction of going to the apartment.
VO: But witnesses were serving others that night, so they may not have seen all the comings and goings.
JM: What the employees are saying is that you may think you’re checking every 15 minutes but when you’re opening… you’re pouring your wine, you’re having your after-dinner coffees, 15 minutes goes by awful fast, so you’re really not keeping track of what the real time is.
VO: Joe suggests that after 5 nights of going out and leaving the kids behind, the parents had developed a false sense of security.
VO: Employees also told Moura that the McCanns were acting normally that night, something he believes would not be possible if they had just killed their daughter.
Reporter of unidentified TV station: Traces of the child’s DNA have been found in a car rented by the parents…
Jon Corner (JC): What’s ironic here is that when the Renault was, was taken away to be forensically tested and Kate and Gerry were massively optimistic, they thought ‘oh they might… they must have a clue, they must have a lead’.
VO: Family friend Jon Corner knows that car well…
JC: That’s the vehicle that’s been used to not only move the kids around from place to place but also to get… get out to the airport to pick up family and friends. You’ve got a vehicle that’s clocked a lot of miles.
PVS: There’s one theory that Kate and Gerry rented a car, drove to a place where they had stored Maddie’s body, either in a refrigerator or in a shallow grave, took her somewhere else and disposed of her.
PVS: Are they worried that evidence has been planted?
VO: Independent DNA experts say that testing should have been completed long ago but police sources have told 48 Hours that the DNA is inconclusive and will not solve this case.
SH: All I know is that Kate and Gerry tell me all the time ‘mum, there’s nothing that can come back’, everything, they say, can be explained by other means.
PVS: Based on your investigation, the real time spent at that resort, talking to the real people who work there and observed the McCanns, what is the truth?
JM: The child was abducted. It was the perfect situation, a solid routine by the parents, and an apartment that was not locked. Easy access, easy access… gone.
