According to Charlotte's 15 minutes of fame, the twins were not in the Apartment on May 3rd.
Jeremy in his statement said his son was fussy and restless he would not sleep. He also said he was busy with his son and would not have noticed if anyone had been at the end of the road. Wilkins saw Gerry on the other side of the road between 8.45/9.15 pm…Wilkins did not know if Gerry was coming or going from the apartment he only knows what Gerry has told him. They chat for a few minutes.Gerrys behaviour perfectly normal. The two men both go their seperate ways.
Gerry checks to make sure Wilkins is out of sight and returns to get Madeleine. Time has been lost, if the plan was to smash the shutter from outside it was now too late, the alarm was to be raised at 10p.m. Gerry needed to hurry.
Gerry fastened his pace and saw a family walking along the street. ( Smith family.)
What happened next and where Gerry took Madeleine we will never know.
Everything had gone wrong. Gerry had been seen.
Jane Tanner, claiming to have seen someone with a child, egg head to later become dark and swarthy .
Had the abduction truly taken place and Mr. Smith had seen the abductor with Madeleine… instead of Gerry, the McCanns would have been cleared of all suspicion. The one true sighting the McCanns have chosen to ignore. A red herring? possibly, but unlikely.
When Gerry returned to PDL for his documentary he had no choice but to also include the Smith sighting. Gerry the director decided to change a few things. Jane Tanner in floods of tears refuting where Gerry now said he stood outside the apartment . Gerry also changed Martin Smiths witness statement. Mr.Smith was very specific when describing the position of the childs head,resting on the mans shoulder. Gerry re-positioned the child to match Tanners story . Why?
A possible reason...
Martin Smith after watching the McCanns on the news 9th September 2007, when they returned to the U.K.
Jane he replies….by Jane .
