The lawyer of the prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case has said that the paedophile is angry at claims he abducted the three-year-old girl in Portugal in 2007.
A German state leader has also revealed that Christian Brueckner (age 43) has been put into solitary confinement for his own protection.
Friedrich Fülscher, who represents Brueckner, told German broadcaster RTL that Christian doesn’t provide any information on the case at the moment and asked for understanding that they as defenders don’t provide any information.
Mr Fülscher said: ‘How can a person, who is isolated in a prison and whom half the world’s population accuses of the worst crimes, be?’
It comes as Hans Christian Wolters, who’s leading the investigation, claimed that police have found that the suspect discussed kidnapping, raping and killing a girl in a conversation with another paedophile online.
Interior Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Claus Christian Claussen said that Brueckner was immediately moved to solitary confinement cell in a separate wing of the prison until further notice and to protect him from the other prisoners when the news broke at Kiel Prison. Mr Claussen said in a statement that Brueckner is the main suspect in the Madeleine McCann case.
Meanwhile, Hans Christian Wolters told The Times that Brueckner discussed kidnapping, raping and killing a girl with another paedophile online. At one point he wrote about his chilling desire to “catch something little and use it for days”, and when asked about getting caught he added: “Meh, if the evidence is destroyed…”
‘We believe our suspect committed further crimes, especially sexual crimes, in Portugal possibly but also elsewhere like Germany.’
Mr Wolters said that he wanted to collect as much evidence as possible before confronting Brüeckner, so that he would have a smaller chance of being able to weaken the case against him. Brueckner is now being investigated in connection with the disappearance of five children including Madeleine who went missing in the Algarve in 2007.
Yesterday it was revealed how Brueckner has been linked to the murder of a German schoolgirl who disappeared nearly 20 years ago. Peggy Knobloch was nine when she vanished on her way home from school in 2001. Part of her skeleton was discovered 15 years later by a mushroom picker in a Bavarian forest, around 60 miles from her home in Lichtenberg, Upper Franconia.
The town is roughly 100 miles from Brueckner’s home town of Wurzburg. Investigators have revealed that the historic cold case is now being reopened for the 43-year-old suspect, who is serving time for child paedophilia.
Detectives are also re-examining the cases of Rene Hasee who went missing whilst on vacation in Aljezur, 25 miles away from Praia da Luz where Brueckner was living at the time.
