I've never seen Maddie, says paedophile

A convicted Midland paedophile last night insisted he had never seen missing Madeleine McCann other than in posters and on TV. Raymond Hewlett, 64, has refused to be questioned by private detectives working for the Leicestershire parents of the tragic youngster. But the sex attacker, previously from Telford but now living in Germany, said: ''The only time I've seen Madeleine McCann is on missing posters. And I saw her on TV in a bar once. But I've never seen her in real life."

Madeleine was nearly four when she vanished from Praia da Luz in the Algarve on May 3, 2007. Despite a massive police investigation and publicity worldwide, she has never been found.

Hewlett, a former soldier, was jailed several times in the UK for sexually assaulting young girls, including an attack in 1978 where he put a gun to his victim's back. But he denied involvement in Madeleine's disappearance and said: "I didn't kill the McCann girl. It's the truth and it's never going to change."

Yet Hewlett is said to have admitted being in the Algarve around the time she went missing - and he looks like a pock-marked suspect seen lurking around the family's apartment..
