By KJ Mullins     Sep 7, 2007 in Crime
Kate McCann ended a second day of grueling questions by the Portuguese police department. It was suggested that Madeleine, the focus of a massive search, could have been accidentally killed. The police are willing to make a deal if this is the case. reports that questioning in the case of four year old Madeleine McCann, who disappeared on May 3,
is getting stronger. Kate McCann was questioned a second day for more than four hours. Her family says they suspect that she will be formally declared a suspect under Portuguese law in the near future. Husband Gerry is also expected to be named as a suspect.
"They tried to get her to confess to having accidentally killed Madeleine by offering her a deal through her lawyer: 'if you say you killed Madeleine by accident and then hid her and disposed of the body, then we can guarantee you a two-year jail sentence or even less,' " Gerry McCann's sister, Philomena, told ITV news. The couple strenuously professed their innocence Friday.
It's been revealed that the new evidence that put the parents at the head of the list consists of blood stains found in a rental car driven by the McCann's. The car was rented 25 days after Madeleine disappeared.
"They believe they have evidence to show that in some way she is involved in the death of her daughter, which is completely ludicrous," McGuinness told British Broadcasting Corp. television.
The Portuguese police have been criticised for not being more aggressive in this case. It took three months for this forensic evidence that is now being examined to be collected and the fact is that the UK's police force are the ones that collected the samples and analyzed them.
At the time of Madeleine's disappearance her doctor parents were dining at a nearby restaurant. They had left Madeleine and her two twin two year old siblings alone in the hotel room they had rented. They have said that they checked on the three young children often.
The case has been broadcast worldwide as Europe searches for the pretty little girl.
