I have to say that I have never accepted the theory that Gerry and/or Kate McCann were responsible for their daughter's alleged murder. For one thing, from the moment they declared her missing they didn't have the time or oppurtunity. The blood stain could have come from one of Madeleine's shoes and there is no way they could have hid a body in the car and buried it oppositte the Church without anyone knowing. The smell and the easy chance of being spotted puts paid to that.
So I am hopeful that these turn of events will help vindicate them. If anything my respect for the McCann's has grown. Waking up and facing each day must be hard enough without being labelled as suspects and the threat of their twins taken away from them.
