Chapter 13: The McCann family, and the Dossier of Death

The McCann family, and the Dossier of Death
Requiescat in Pace - Brenda Leyland

A ’Dossier’ was prepared, allegedly, of ‘tweets’, Facebook messages, and blog entries, sent to people unconnected with the McCanns
It was handed to the Metropolitan Police, who sent it to Leicestershire Police.
Both forces decided there was NOTHING in it which merited closer examination.
It made its way to Sky News, and to Martin Brunt. He chose to pursue Brenda Leyland and the encounter was repeated on Sky’s rolling news programme for an entire day.
Two days later Brenda Leyland was found dead.
The verdict at the Inquest was Suicide.

“The McCanns want @sweepyface prosecuted”, a source close to the couple said last night. “This wicked person and the other trolls out there are very sad individuals: he said. “Kate and Gerry hope police take action against her, and if she gets prosecuted all the better. It is a criminal act and she needs to pay the price.”

Brenda Leyland did indeed pay the price. She paid with her life.

There are no prizes for guessing the identity of the ‘source close to the couple’.
There are also no prizes for discovering who handed the dossier to the police, or to Sky News and Martin Brunt

• Jim Gamble, sometime head of CEOPS, sacked by Theresa May, stated that the family did not hand in the dossier, neither did they have anything to do with it.

• Sky News and Martin Brunt said the dossier was handed in by 'anonymous web users.'

• Gerry McCann stated on BBC Radio 4 that they had no presence on social media.

• However Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said the McCann family handed in the dossier.

So do we believe Britain’s most Senior Police Officer, when he says the family handed it in, or Gamble, Mitchell, Brunt, and Gerry ?

Your choice, obviously.

The TV confrontation between Sky News reporter and the deceased Mrs Leyland may be viewed at where it is headed Police Investigate Madeleine McCann Family Online Abuse.

In the first part of the video, from 3;58 to 4:54 there is footage of the person who allegedly created the dossier which Martin Brunt was to refer to.

This location is in fact Craiglockhart Pond, in Edinburgh. (55º55’N, 3º13’W)

The possible identity of the person involved in preparing, as opposed to handing in, the dossier is less easy to determine, but the following may assist.
The person in the video uses the expressions

are talking about materials which are libellous, completely untrue.
“WE were getting nowhere by reporting it to the sites
“WE were finding people going online . . .”

This is highly suggestive of a family member, as we might expect.

What follows are comparison screen shots from the Sky video, and photos and screen shots from other sources. All are in the public domain.

Calves and ankles


Steel bangle

Favourite Colour ?

In addition, Sky chose to ‘voice-over’ the original, in standard English with an acceptable accent. Listening to the following recording of the likely suspect might help explain why.

It is suspected on reasonable grounds that the woman in question is of course Philomena McCann, Gerry McCann’s elder sister. She is a part time teacher in Ullapool.

The person who set up and ran, and may still do so, the ludicrously expensive website for the McCanns and their “Fund”, (in fact a Private Limited Company), was one of her pupils.

Philomena - who told the world that ‘It is obvious that someone with malicious intent went through that window and took Madeleine from the safety and security of her family.”
And who told the world that “Gerry and Kate were in a clear line of sight of their kids . . . and if they’d come out the front, they’d have seen them.”

Someone used, in fact, to talking or repeating utter nonsense - because someone told her to.

She is married to “Quicksand Tony” a skilled photographer, knowledgeable amateur astronomer, and photoshop expert pervert, who used to post his images on,,, and possibly other similarly depraved sites.

It is not known whether Philomena McCann shared her husband’s perverted interest. It is however doubtful whether after several years of marriage that she could remain totally unaware of it.

The question however remains -

Does she have blood on her hands ?
