Maddie suspect's Irish past fits crime

A COP who interrogated Madeleine McCann suspect Raymond Hewlett says the case carries all the hallmarks of the sick sex beast who struck in Ireland.

Former Detective Superintendent Trevor Wilkinson spent years on the trail of the convicted paedophile, who was in Portugal when Maddie vanished two years ago.

And Mr Wilkinson told the Irish News of the World the snatching of the child from her holiday apartment matches the predator's offending profile.

He said: "He is constantly looking for prey and we know he is prepared to enter a property to get to a child, which he's done."

Hewlett, 64, critically ill with cancer in a German hospital, has been jailed three times for kidnap and molesting young girls and is connected to a string of other attacks on kids.

In 1998 the Irish News of the World found him in an isolated cottage in the remote Cooley mountains in Co Louth. Schoolkids would visit his home where he pretended to be a maths teacher who could help with homework.

He was forced out of Dunaff, Co Donegal, moved near Tralee, Co Kerry, and has spent time in Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Wesmeath, Fermanagh, and Tyrone.

Detectives hired by Kate and Gerry McCann hope to quiz the pervert this week.

They plan to grill him about his whereabouts when Maddie went missing and about other paedos in Portugal. Ex-detective Dave Edgar and his team have just gathered new information in the Algarve.
