Judiciary Police will not Reopen the Maddie Case
by Tânia Laranjo
The Judiciary Police will not reopen the Maddie Case, since there aren't any new leads regarding her whereabouts.
A Judiciary Police source told the CM that the process is, at the moment, being re-evaluated, in cooperation with a team of London investigators.
The team is coordinated by Helena Monteiro [Superior Coordinator of Criminal Investigation], from the the PJ in Oporto, and was set up several months ago. However nothing new was found that could help discover the whereabouts of the child. This is the second time that the PJ requests the aid of a “foreign” team to examine the process, in order to understand if there was a lead that wasn't followed.
