The sociopathic traits of Gerry McCann


  1. a person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behaviour.

One of the questions that poses itself for anybody who has studied the McCann case, or indeed for the casual observer, is this; could one or both of the McCanns have a severe mental disorder? 
A sociopath possesses  the ability to withdraw emotion and conscience from situations that may present themselves to them, especially when those characteristic traits hinder their ability to cope with a problem. 

  1. For instance, imagine a computer game, a shoot em up, if you will. You the player, wander the streets, armed to the teeth with weapons and shoot anything that comes your way. That is the aim of the game, and you do it because you must to win. You have no feelings for the characters you blast your way past, why would you, they're not real, you just do it because it's a game. For the sociopath, it is much the same, life presents them with a mission, a goal, or a need, and whilst they might not kill anyone in the process, the lack of conscience gives them the ability to calmly succeed without thought for right or wrong, only the desire to win.

    In Gerry McCann, we see a man who plays out the case of his missing daughter as if it were a game. He appears to thrive from the thrill of the chase, and it is that chase that makes his sociopathic traits manifest to the surface. Whereas you or I would panic if in the situation of the McCanns, Gerry does not, he is calm, he is alert, he is calculating, his mind working at high speed, reading the situation with the guile of a predator, all powerful, in control of everyone, and everything around him. He feels that he is the centre of attention, his personality absorbent of his own deceptiveness, and his self belief grows with every calculated scheme.

    Take the following scenario, it is a theory that has been put about by many as to what happened to Madeleine McCann:

    The McCanns sedated their children, so that they could enjoy nights out without the worry of them waking up. It isn't an implausible theory, Kate McCann after all, is a qualified anaesthetist, she would have a professional expertise on various sedatives, dosages, and be more than competent in the administration of them. It is a known fact that Madeleine, as is quite normal for a three year old, had history for waking during the night, as her reward chart shows. 

  2. If we are to believe that the children were left, then how could the McCanns be sure Madeleine would not wake, wander off, (she had done before). She could have encountered many household hazards in a dark, unfamiliar apartment. Kate described in her book, and to the press how "we had always suspected all three children had been sedated" yet it took her 4 months to have them tested. Now, with Gerry's cardiological background, and Kate's expertise, it is completely illogical that either parent would take 4 months to have their children tested, knowing the fatal consequences that could arise  from a qualified professional giving children sedatives, let alone a stranger. Curiously, Kate had this to say of the eventual test results:

    "Whilst this didn't totally exclude the possibility that the children had been sedated, especially given the time that had elapsed, it meant that nobody else (including the PJ and the media) could prove otherwise"

    There are grounds to believe the children had all been sedated, not by an abductor, but by Kate or Gerry McCann, and so back to our scenario. The children were sedated, Madeleine has an adverse reaction to the drug she was given, and either wakes feeling unwell, gets out of bed and has a fall, or dies during her sleep, and is found by her parents. It would certainly explain the cadaver odour on Kate McCann's clothes, and could even explain the crying heard by Mrs Fenn. As harsh as it sounds, and it does, Madeleine is dead, neither parent can change that fact, a decision must be made. This is where the sociopath would take over. With no regard for human decency, a sociopath would enter the realms of damage limitation, or self preservation if you like. An autopsy is out of the question, thus alerting the authorities is out of the question. Too much would be at stake, neither doctor would work again, one, or both would certainly face manslaughter charges, which would undoubtedly result in a jail term, and both of the twins would be taken from the couple. With that in mind, is it inconceivable that Gerry took over, hatched a plan to dispose of Madeleine's body, and protect what is left of his family? I think not.

  3. There is clear evidence, that suggests Gerry segregated the loss of Madeleine to concentrate on saving the family unit. Time and time again, we see Gerry refer to Madeleine as "the child", it is a classic case of disassociation. By calling Madeleine "the child", she is no longer his daughter, but an object, eg. the bus, the tree, the fridge, the emotional connection is removed, therefore making the situation more playable, remember this is a game now, there is no room for sentiment, not for the sociopath.

  4. A sociopath has the burning need to control situations, to control the characters within the game, again this is evident with the power Gerry holds over Kate. Kate has aged drastically over the years, she does not possess the same ability to place guilt or emotion into a box, thus dealing with self preservation as easily. Take for example the 48 questions Kate McCann refused to answer. We are told this was upon the advice of the McCanns' lawyer, yet Gerry chose to answer his questions. Of course he was always going to, the need for controlling the situation would mean that keeping silent, simply wasn't an option. Keeping Kate silent, on the other hand, was the only option. It was during Gerry's interview, that we see yet more evidence of displacement, when shown the evidence of the dogs alerting to all things McCann, Gerry wouldn't even look at the screen. Almost childlike tendencies, "If I can't see it, it isn't happening, and therefore it can't hurt me" again, removing the reality, the risk of emotion, from the set plan, the self preservation. Gerry had to be in control. Whilst waiting at the police station, and about to negotiate, with a man who claimed to have Madeleine, Gerry was said to be sat, calmly sucking on a lollipop, watching the television, and chatting to an officer about sport, yet again, and I know I keep writing it, he was distancing himself from the situation.

    Time after time we have seen interviews on the television, or videos, where Gerry displays his true nature, he can't help it, whilst he is talking, he is calmness personified, he is in control, the toothy sneer, the arrogance, the smugness, the catch me if you can attitude, but all of that goes out the window the moment Kate speaks. As soon as Kate answers a question, or dares to speak, Gerry's face tightens, a fear washes over his face, he is not in control, and the fact that every word that comes out of Kate's mouth, hasn't passed through the mind of Gerry first, fills him with dread. Take the video below for example, Gerry goes through every trick in the book to correct Kate, he shows disappointment, both facially, and physically, leaving Kate in no doubt, that she hasn't stuck to his script.  

  A sociopath, whilst convinced they are doing the      right thing by a loved one, will ultimately destroy    them. They truly believe that they are making those  closest to them, into better people, for that person's  own good. They will attempt to mould them into  what they believe they should be, but in doing so,  they will leave the other person lifeless, scared and  desolate. Kate's face bears the scars of such  behaviour, it is barren , often lifeless, her eyes  glazed, and devoid of any happiness. Her actions  are no longer her own, as she now finds herself in a  mortal state of purgatory, ruled by her "loving"  husband, whilst tortured with the need to rid herself  of guilt. Something she will never be able to do. 

In contrast, Gerry doesn't seem to have aged at all, he has fed his needs from what he perceives as a game, a game that to he is convinced he is winning, but at what cost? How many have suffered at the hands of Gerry McCann, how many more will suffer? One thing is for sure, one day, one way or another, the games are always over, and when that day comes, Gerry McCann, the man who thought he could control the world, will lose everything.

More McCann lies. A crock of locked V unlocked

Philomena McCann, Gerry's sister, said on 04 May: "Some people may ask why they left the children alone in the apartment but it was locked and they had a full view of the front door and they were checking every half hour."

Ok, so the apartment was locked then.

Jill Renwick, a family friend, told GMTV on 04 May: "She's obviously been taken as she couldn't have gone out on her own and the shutters had been forced open."

Still locked.

Jon Corner, a friend of the McCanns, and one of the many people who was told the lie of an "abductor" smashing the shutters, said:

"She (Kate) just blurted out that Madeleine had been abducted. She told me, 'They have broken the shutter on the window and taken my little girl.'

"They had left the apartment locked while they were having their meal, but when they went back the last time they saw the damage."

You guessed it, still locked.

It was these people, along with others, who were also told tales of "smashed", "jemmied" and "broken" shutters. Before we move on, let's have a look at some of the statements from people who the McCanns lied to, when they said there had been a break in:

Instead of searching for Madeleine, the McCanns were busy lying to all and sundry:

Brian Healy (Kate's father)

"Gerry told me when they went back the shutters to the room were broken, they were jemmied up and she was gone,"

Trish Cameron (Gerry's sister)

"The door was lying open, the window in the bedroom and the shutters had been jemmied open."

"She just blurted out that Madeleine had been abducted. She told me, 'They have broken the shutter on the window and taken my little girl.''

Philomena McCann (Gerry's big sister)

"The shutters were jemmied, the window opened"

Jill Renwick (Kate's friend)

"Madeleine has obviously been taken. She couldn't have gone out on her own and the shutters were forced."

"They were just watching the hotel room and going back every half-hour and the shutters had been broken open and they had gone into the room and taken Madeleine,"

Jon Corner (family friend)

"Kate said the shutters of the room were smashed."

"She just told me that Maddy (sic) had been abducted, that the shutters of the apartment had been forced and someone had taken her."

Daily Mail

"When Mrs McCann checked on the children, she found the apartment door wide open, the window shutters jemmied wide and her daughter's bed empty."So as things on the night of the 3rd, we have reports of a locked apartment, parents out, smashed shutters, and a missing child. 

^^^^That's an abduction right there^^^^

Only that isn't the truth is it. The truth is, there were no signs of a break in, despite the McCanns best efforts to convince the world otherwise, and the truth came out almost as quickly as it was hidden:

Daily Mail

"The parents, who were taken to the PJ in Portimão at around mid-morning, refused to speak to the journalists, but advanced the idea that the apartment had been broken into, to the British media. Nevertheless, the resort's administration and the GNR assert that "there were no signs of a break-in whatsoever"

Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa, spokesman for the investigation, has confided in British former Chief Inspector Albert Kirby that neither the windows nor their shutters had been tampered with.

Albert Kirby

"I had a very interesting chat with the officer in charge. The window shutters are not an issue."

Confirming this, 
John Hill (resort manager) said that there was:

"no sign of a break in whatsoever"

Even the McCann's very own spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, finally conceded that:

“There was no evidence of a break-in"

This amazing U turn was covered in many newspapers:

Irish Independent

"Interestingly, Clarence Mitchell's statement about the McCanns reversal of their 'break in' story, came one week after Dispatches aired the documentary 'Searching For Madeleine' on 18 October 2007. In that documentary, it was effectively proved that there was no way anybody could break into the apartment and leave no forensic trace or damage to the lightweight aluminium shutters, which are covered with a fine coating of polyurethane paint which marks extremely easily."

So how did an "abductor" get into a locked apartment, take Madeleine from her bed, and make off into the night, without leaving a trace?

Think Gerry, think. What you gonna do now, you're screwed. Abductors don't walk through walls.........

Taken from Gerry McCann's statement, the day after he and Kate spent the night telling lies, whilst others searched for their daughter.

Click here to read Gerry McCann's statement 04/05/2007

"the witness, (Gerry) came to the Club, entered the room using his respective key, the door being locked"

What's that? Say that again.........

"the witness, (Gerry) came to the Club, entered the room using his respective key, the door being locked"

but I thought it was unlocked?

Well this is most peculiar. <scratches head>

Let's get this straight, first the apartment was locked, the shutters smashed, and Madeleine taken.

The next day, the shutters were fine, the patio door had been left unlocked.

Despite this patio door being unlocked, Gerry states, that both he and Kate used their key to gain access to the apartment via the front door. Here's where things get a bit odd. Check this diagram out:

The black line, denotes the route from the Tapas bar to the patio door Gerry says they left unlocked. The red line, the route to the locked door, Gerry claims he and Kate used to check on Madeleine (we will see Kate's version of events differ completely later). It beggars belief that the couple would take a route twice the distance to enter the apartment, through a locked door, when the unlocked one was much closer.

Now, over the years we've heard the excuse that the patio door was left open in case of fire. Are we really supposed to believe that if a fire was to break out, Madeleine, a 3 year old little girl, would battle through the blaze, a sibling slung over either shoulder, make her way to the unlocked patio door, and save the day? Let's say that would be possible, that Madeleine could indeed do that. Why then was Kate so sure, that Madeleine hadn't simply wandered off? How was it she was convinced straight away that "They've taken her",

Let's look at Kate's first statement now. You'll remember how Gerry said that both he and Kate used the locked, front door to gain access to the apartment. Kate however, tells a different story, she states that she actually used the unlocked patio door. The following is taken from Kate McCann's statement:

"At around 10pm, the interviewee went to check on the children. She went into the apartment by the side door, which was closed but not locked, as she said before. She noticed that the door to her children's bedroom was completely open, the window was also open, the shutters raised and the curtains open, while she was certain of having closed them all as she always did."

Statement of Kate McCann 04/05/2007

Wouldn't you think that Kate and Gerry would have known exactly which doors each other used, especially the one used for the final check?

Would it not be something you would both discuss over and over, as you desperately tried to ascertain what happened that night?

Perhaps had they not both spent the night lying to friends and family, about a fully locked apartment, and smashed shutters, (whilst not searching for their missing daughter) they might have perfected their plan B story sooner.

I will leave you to sit back and watch this video, yet another version of events, and perhaps the most ludicrous thing I have ever witnessed.
