    Vile Madeleine McCann Tinder profile set up by sick troll leaves social media sickened

    Vile trolls have set up a Tinder profile for missing Madeleine McCann, according to reports.

    Social media users have slammed the account, which was set up around two kilometres from one user in Glasgow, Scotland.

    The vile account on the dating app claims the missing Brit is "down the pub drinking Sangria".

    The full bio reads: "Had the worst holiday in Portugal, would not recommend to a friend.

    "Just down at the pub drinking sangria x".

    The hoax profile set up by an anonymous keyboard warrior has been widely blasted.

    Screenshots have surfaced on Twitter and Facebook.

    I always thought she was taken by traffickers. When they could not find a body I thought she was probably alive and taken out by car that night. Whoever took her probably had a lot of political influence and this is why the parents were targeted as suspects. The relaxed atmosphere at the resort was probably encouraged for that very reason making an abduction possible. We are learning evil people are everywhere.

    My issue is the authorities knew who was in the area and I'm willing to bet they never checked them out.

    But how do you explain the hits of two highly trained and successful cadaver dogs?

    ETA in the apartment, in front of the apartment, in the rental car and on 'cuddle cat ' ?

    Correcting myself: one was a cadaver dog, the other one specialised in detecting human blood.

    There could have been blood in the car from someone who rented the car earlier. As far as the cadaver dog I couldn't even guess why it would hit but I would want a record of everyone who ever rented the vehicle. Wasn't there blood inside the apartment? That could have been from whoever took her if she put up a fight. I just do not see these parents doing anything to hurt their child. And they had no time to remove her body had she died accidentally. What would they do with her body as it's not as if there are places to hide a body with everyone looking for her and dogs searching. I still say the authorities in Spain had an idea who had her and for whatever reason chose not to pursue it.

    has anyone been watching the new Netflix documentary about Madeleine's disappearance?
    it leaves me feeling so angry.

    Not yet plan on watching when in the right frame of mind

    i think the issue with the police is that they believed from the get go that the parents had a hand in this.
    they didn't make them 'arguidos' until around a month later but the search was pretty lacking and i'm not sure that they believed the parents much, if at all. why would they? if this was a couple of unemployed early 20's parents, maybe so many wouldn't be so quick to believe them either.

    i can't say that for definite that anything specific happened, either way.
    its one of those cases where everyone wants to know regardless of whether they are right or wrong and Madeleine deserves some justice no matter what happened.
    but it is my opinion that the story is too 'odd' to be true.

    it's a little slow in parts for those that know so much about the case but v. interesting either way.
    especially the further you get into it.

    by this i mean the checking every 20 minutes or so, no one seemed sure of how often they checked.
    why did they leave the door unlocked?
    why did they leave those children after Madeleine asked the night before why they didn't come when her and Sean were crying that night?
    idk, i just think if it was another set of parents, another class of people, in a different setting, there would be more questioning over the parents.

    it would just be amazing to find her. i live v. close by to her parents and the whole country would stop dead in their tracks if Madeleine was found.

    the discussion on one of the episodes went onto Rui Pedro too. . . truly terrible.

    I agree the class thing played a part if they'd been a couple from a council estate working in a supermarket and not doctors
    they probally would have had a lot more scrutiny when they came home for one thing

    I still have never made my mind up about this case because there was some very odd things the parents did
    but also some of the way the police handled the case was odd to
    but different countries have different ways of working so it may have been the norm there

    the door being unlocked always worried me cause there's no way I'd leave a place with young kids unlocked even at home

    never. i don't have my own children but the minute that my niece or my nephews are out of my sight is like having a small heart attack.
    when you are responsible for children, that is the type of panic most parents or guardians experience. i could never have relaxed at dinner knowing the children were at risk like that.
    even if a child being abducted didn't cross their minds, as it probably wouldn't, what about a child choking? or a fire starting? how would Madeleine have been able to get herself and her twin siblings out, at 3 years old? even just if one of them was crying or upset and had no one there to comfort them. . . i just do not understand how that be relaxing. but then again, these are the types of things that go through my mind. maybe they didn't go through the McCann's mind.

    yes, the police had a strange approach to policing and the McCanns had a strange approach to parenting imo. none of it makes sense and it all contributes to their being no answers for Madeleine.

    Just started this series. It is a bit slow. Still interesting though, so far. Going to try to watch the rest of the episodes.

    Just finished the Netflix series.

    I don't know if I'm in the minority or not here, but I don't believe her parents had anything to do with her disappearance. There were a few points in the documentary where they presented some evidence and I went, "Well crap, they did it." But later they present some alternate explanations. Is there still some odd or suspicious behavior? Yes. But I'm pretty firmly off the fence on this one. Might still be within reach of the fence, but my feet are on the ground on the side of an actual abduction.

    I did not watch. Not a fan of Netflix and what they produce. When you think about how would a parent hide a body that fast without someone knowing about it. They are both doctors. Whatever would happen can happen in an instant and there would be no reason to hide her body. She fell, hit her head, choked on something, etc. They would have tried to save her life either way and worked on her while calling for assistance. I don't believe they had anything to do with her disappearance. I feel they are guilt ridden beyond anyone's belief because as professionals they feel they never should have left her so unprotected. Plus with known suspects who were known to be involved in child trafficking in the area I believe the parents were set up to make it appear they hid her body. Too hard to believe they would immediately know exactly where to dispose of a body that not even the dogs could find so soon afterwards. That is just my feelings on the case. I never did think the McCanns had anything to do with her disappearance.
