Local papers are excited after the Daily Mail revealed that alleged Madeline McCann killer Christian Breuckner drove to Vera in the weeks before the abduction, in the same vehicle police think he used in the attack.
The story is a little involved, in traditional Daily Mail style, and I couldn’t be bothered to read it all, but it seems he picked up a couple in Málaga and drove them up to Vera, where he spent some time before carrying on to Germany.
The couple were taking part in a German radio sponsored challenge to get a trailer from Portugal to Germany relying on the goodwill of others. After, the early 2000’s. Good times.
