The Madeleine McCann ‘official suspect’ has reportedly broken his silence on the child’s disappearance from his prison cell in Germany.
Christian Brueckner, who is believed to be in an Oldenburg prison for other sexual offences, apparently wrote a five-page letter stating that there is ‘not even one proof’ he was involved with her missing case.
According to the Daily Mail, the letter said: “I’m the most-known bad person in the world and I did nothing – well almost nothing.

“I wasn’t kidnapping anybody and of course, I wasn’t killing anybody. I’ll go further, I’ll tell you I wasn’t attacking anybody after I was 18.
“I made some silly mistakes when I was younger but who hasn’t?”
It reportedly went into more detail about McCann’s disappearance, adding: “Perhaps I was a suspect, after all, they found out about me.
“Drug dealer, breaking into houses, living in cars and there was something with kids when I was 17.
“But they had not even one proof that I was involved with the McCann case. And they still don’t have it.”
Brueckner continued: “I know why. Because they have no hairs or anything from Maddie what means that nobody can put anything like that into my stuff to find it.
“The idea behind that all perhaps was to make the BKA [German police] and German prosecutor famous as well known all over the world as the smartest organisation ever.”
The letter was allegedly sent to a woman who has requested to have her identity kept private.
Brueckner lived in the Algarve from 1995 to 2007, which is where McCann vanished from Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007. At the time, she was just three years old.
Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann were also made ‘named suspects’ at one stage of the investigation. However, this status was lifted in 2008.
