Kate and Gerry McCann have always said they will not comment about the investigation into the fate of their daughter.
So why do they allow Clarence Mitchell to spread rumours in the press about Operation Grange?
Why does he use false identities – such as “a source” and a “family friend” to give credibility to these stories?
Why does he talk to the press about new possible suspects – giving them time and reason, of course, to kill the McCanns’ daughter?
Why won’t he shut up?
Why won’t the McCanns stop him?
What is the aim?
What is the motive?
