Her parents claimed that they left the kid at the hotel or whatever it was and went to dinner along with some of their pals. And, while at dinner, they all checked up on the kids in shifts.
That makes no sense. Who would do that? Who would head on out to dinner (albeit not all that far from where they were staying) and leave their kids at home asleep?
I think Madeleine was already dead and placed heaven knows when well before the dinner.
Still waiting for the parents to be put on trial. Someone knows something. Someone's going to break.
You just sold another 34,000 newspapers in the UK, OP. Congrats.
This is one of the few cases like this where I actually don't think the parents did it. I do think they lied about going to check on them because they didn't want to look like bad parents, but I don't think they did anything to Madeleine.
I don't even get an honorable mention?!
That father is a hottie though.
Are there any dingos in Portugal?

Selfish idiots? You do understand that many people prefer going out for a nice dinner to sitting in a hotel room to watch their offspring breathe? Those idiots were even that selfish, they gave the daughter something to help, when she didn't fall asleep in time naturally. And that was not their greatest idea. No mystery.
Oh, and they probably put her in a bag with stones and into the ocean to cover up their idiotic accidental crime.
Last page bump
They flung her dead body out to sea when she was just the right size.
What do you mean "missing?" We know where her body is burie...I mean, please, um, return our dearest Maddie!
The restaurant was right on the same block with the hotel. They were only about two minutes away.
If this couple was black y'all would be demanding the death penalty for being selfish and negligent parents, but because it's a lily white couple the majority of DL queens identify with, we're supposed to feel sorry for the asshole parents. Fuck them.
The father is a drop-dead-gorgeous homosexual.
We are surprised nothing has been said about this.
Update, Madeleine is still missing because they have not found her
I believe Nyquill or some other sort of sedative was most likely used & the child accidentally died. The parents then dumped the body into the sea.
I read the subject as "Megan McCain Is Still Missing" and wondered what the problem is.
R28 is nyquil Even available in the uk? U Gotta know in Europe Most drugs are alot less Strong and less dangerous then in the uk. I shudder when i hear the sideffects of American non prescription drugs
The parents were/are swingers and were out at a swingers party.
The parents are lucky they were white MDs on an expensive vacation and not poor Jamaican immigrants in a council flat.
yes, Nyquil is in the UK. It is sold under the name of "Night Nurse"
[quote]That father is a hottie though.
Is there any white guy the DL queens don't find hot? I saw the guy's photos and he looks bland, unattractive and average in every way.
r34 = fish
What r28 said. Both of them are doctors. Maybe it was nyquil or maybe it was some other drug with which they were familiar. Accidental OD.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
