A new theory claiming Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry, killed and covered up the 3-year-old’s murder has taken over Twitter.
The theory was created by Twitter user @_hollybrown_x and has been retweeted over 4000 times. It took off shortly after Netflix released a docu-series based on the disappearance of Madeleine.
The Twitter thread is below.
” I’ve had a theory about Madeleine McCann for ages so I’m gonna do a thread because I need to shed a light on how obvious this is
So, days after Madeleine’s disappearance, Kate and Gerry “seeked comfort” from a local priest in Portugal (more likely taking part in confession for killing their daughter but however I’ll carry on), but the priest later claimed he had “been deceived” by the pair
They became so close to the priest that the police became suspicious and believed they had confessed to him about murdering Madeleine. They had keys to his church, etc.
Detectives questioned the priest (father Jose Manuel Pacheco), and he said “I swore I would take everything they told me to the grave” and wouldn’t give the police any information due to his role as a priest
After father Pacheco was questioned, he disappeared from the public eye as soon as Kate and Gerry became suspects of their daughters disappearance, then Kate and Gerry eventually flew back to the UK
The police then had a warrant to search the premises of the church and dig up the graveyard but never ever done it, why?
Sooooo basically, Kate and Gerry killed her, confessed to the priest and buried her body in the graveyard at his church. You’re welcome.”
This is just one out of many theories to have come out since Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007. Other conspiracies suggest things that she was kidnapped and forced into human trafficking or her taken by an infertile couple.
There is no clear sign as to what happened to Madeleine, but that won’t stop Twitter from investigating.
