Prime Suspect: The Madeleine McCann Case: New Documentary On Christian B Announced

A new documentary will delve deeper into the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann after a German national Christian Brückner was declared a prime suspect.

Prime Suspect: The Madeleine McCann Case will shed light on one of the world's most well-known criminal cases, examining what evidence the police have, and looking into exactly who the suspect - known as Christian B - is.

Christian was named as a prime suspect in June 2020, 13 years after Madeleine's disappearance.

Even though the authorities have not found any trace of Madeleine, the documentary will examine why German federal police are convinced that Madeleine's abductor is sitting in a German jail cell - where he is currently serving a prison sentence for raping a 72-year-old woman in Praia da Luz, the same civil parish in the Algarve region of Portugal where Madeleine was abducted.

Told in three parts, Prime Suspect: The Madeleine McCann Case examines who Christian B is and how he can be linked to one of the world's most well-known, unsolved cases.

Friends of the suspect, an ex-girlfriend and key figures in the case, such as the suspect's defence counsel, the German prosecutor and the former lead investigator on the case exclusively share their thoughts in this documentary.

Christian B has not yet been charged for any crimes related to the Madeleine McCann case.

The documentary investigates what led the German police to a breakthrough in the case that shocked the entire world, how and why is the 43-year-old German man suspected of Madeleine McCann's disappearance and whether witnesses placed him near the crime scene, or if police have other evidence that could place him in the McCann family's bedroom in 2007.

Madeleine's disappearance was also the focus of a Netflix docu-series titled The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
