The main suspect in the Madeleine McCann case has spoken out in disturbing new letters from prison.

The three-year-old mysteriously disappeared from her bed in a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal in May 2007.

Her case has remained unsolved to this day and her family has vowed to keep searching until they find out what happened to her.

But now, the main suspect in the case has spoken about his involvement.

Christian B, 45, was named a formal suspect in 2022 after it had been claimed he was spotted at Arade dam – which is about 50km away from Praia da Luz – around the time of the toddler’s disappearance.

He allegedly lived in the area while the McCanns were on holiday in 2007.

However, Christian B has never been officially charged over Madeleine’s disappearance and has denied any involvement with her.

He is currently in prison in Germany for the r*** of a woman in Praia da Luz in 2005 and is also suspected of further r*** and child s**ual abuse in the area between 2000 and 2017.

Now in letters seen by the Daily Mail, Christian B has protested his innocence in the case as he claims he had nothing to do with McCann’s disappearance.

He pens: “You can never imagine how it is when the whole world believes you are a child murderer, and you are not.”

The suspect then reveals that he got told that there will not even be a trial for him as there is ‘not the smallest piece of evidence’.

He continues: “I got told a long time ago that the prosecutor’s office was closing the Maddie case because there is not even the smallest evidence. There will never be a trial.

“The prosecutors are not saying anything to the public because they must give the files to my lawyers – and they contain many (sic) material which confirms my innocence.”

He concludes his letters by writing: “I’m writing this without self-pity and my self-confidence and self-control was never at a higher level.

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Chin up! Better days are coming.”

The search for Madeline McCann

A search of the Arade Dam was authorised by German authorities and it recently took place.

It went on for three days and involved divers investigating the dam while officers explored a woodland area that was located near the water.

While the search was stopped due to weather warnings, it has been reported that officials found a possible ‘relevant clue’.

This includes a bra strap, items of clothing and plastic items.

Eight large, deep holes were also dug in order to collect soil samples – which have now been sent off for DNA and forensic testing in Germany.

However, the McCanns may have to wait a long to receive the results of the search, as it could potentially take weeks to months for the study to be thoroughly analysed and completed.
