The German police say they have hard evidence that he murdered her , but so far they have not released that. They are also looking to charge him with the rape of an Irish woman in Portugal in 2004.

You can see why he is a prime suspect with the mobile phone GPS putting him within yards of the McCann apartment minutes before her abduction.

He is a known burglar , rapist and child abuser. Very few people(even criminal types) fit the profile for random child abduction and murder.

But he fits it to a tee and had the opportunity. What is the likelihood of another unconnected person who fits that profile just happening to be in the exact same area at the same time. Not impossible , but certainly improbable.
We are 6 weeks in to the 'hard evidence' story and still nada.

The circumstantial stuff provides reasonable cause for strong suspicion against the suspect and is tantalisingly close to grounds for bringing charges but not close enough. It's a race against time because of statutes of limitations in Portugal and Germany so they are pulling out all the stops and that dig on the face of it looked like a longshot.

The GPS data seems to place him in the vicinity of the apartment at the relevant time, plus his previous convictions for sex offences. Its not absolute proof, but its a compelling case, if perhaps not yet a conclusive one (unless the cops have more evidence than they have revealed).

One issue that gives me some doubt, is that if the purpose of the dig is to find a body, how likely is it that he would have been able to bring the body all the way from Portugal without being detected? Is there a precedent for such a thing? A more plausible explanation might have been that he first abducted her and brought her to Germany posing as a parent. But in 2007 the story was everywhere, so surely someone would have spoken out if they has suspicions?

I don't think it was to find the body, he may have kept or buried some items (gruesome as it may seem, although not in comparison to his activities), clothing or something similar, that might have her DNA on it.

It doesn't bear thinking about how she met her end, or what she suffered beforehand at the hands of this beast. Vermin like this should face the electric chair.
I think that such as him should officially lose their title as human beings and be put into a sub class of some sort where they no longer have human rights.
