German public prosecutors have identified a man who is currently in jail who is suspected of the abduction and killing of Madeleine McCann.
He is only known as Christian B at this time due to legal reasons.
Madeleine who went missing from an apartment block on 3 May 2007, she was then only 4-years-old, her mum and dad left her alone whilst they went out with freinds in Portugal.
Christian B is also linked with another child vanishing and has been convicted of child sex abuse in the past, it is thought he re registered his car in someone elses name the day after Madeleine was reported missing.
It has been widely reported that he had been talking to someone at a bar in Germany suggesting that he knew what happened, this was on the anniversary of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance.
A spokesperson for Madeleine’s parents Gerry and Kate McCann said: “The identification of the German suspect is the most significant development in 13-years.”
This man’s name though seems to have been mentioned many times through the years and has been chopped off the list of suspects, and now returns as a lead suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
