Pat Brown, criminal profiler talks about the Madeleine McCann case


Towards the end of the video, another case is mentioned, which is said to have some similarities. That was the case of Sabrina Aisenberg, who disappeared in 1997, at the age of 5 months. Her mother stated that she put Sabrina to bed in her cot and some time later, Sabrina had disappeared. Because of inconsistencies in their statements, the Aisenberg parents had their home 'wire tapped,' and over 60 conversations were recorded, which were thrown out of court because they were inaudible. In 2008, a 'jail snitch,' came forward and stated that he believed another inmate, Scott Overbeck, was somehow involved.

We have a child who disappeared without trace, parents whose statements hold inconsistencies, alleged odour of decomposition, although it doesn't sound like dogs were brought in.

Note at 0.24 of the video, Marlene Aisenberg, Sabrina's mother, appears to be using the script later used by Kate McCann, "Sabrina needs her mother and her father.." She also talks about Sabrina's siblings. Nothing suspicious, I suppose, in the similarities here: it's just worth mentioning, in my opinion, that the McCanns appear to have had a previously used script to follow. Also worth noting is that the Aisenbergs sued the police!

Pat Brown has written a review of Kate McCann's recently published book about Madeleine's disappearance.

"Madeleine: Wherein lies the Truth."

It is said there is often a lot of nonfiction in fiction and a lot of fiction in in nonfiction. Kate McCann's new autobiography, Madeleine, is a prime example of this axiom. I say 'autobiography' because Kate's book is not so much about what happened to her missing daughter, Madeleine Beth, but about Kate McCann nee Healy - her life, her loves and her losses, her trials and her tribulations. In reality, very little of the book is about the missing little girl who vanished in Praia da Luz, the lovely vacation destination in the Algarve of south Portugal; it is a carefully crafted revisionist history of one of the most puzzling missing children's cases in recent years and a strident defense of the characters and behaviors of Kate and Gerry McCann.
