A Scotland Yard detective who lived next door to Madeleine McCann suspects Christian Brueckner is working with the Portuguese police to find the missing three-year-old, was allegedly alleged today.
The British police officer owns a house next to a site where the German pedophile worked after the young person’s disappearance, say the former bosses of the hobos in the Algarve.
The revelation emerged as it was alleged that Portuguese police were ignoring requests to dig up the land surrounding the secluded villa in Foral, 30 miles from Praia da Luz.
His former employer said she suspected Brueckner had killed Madeleine and told police he could have buried her body there.
Portuguese officials are also getting new questions about not arresting the serial offender earlier, after angry parents revealed that he had escaped trial in the Algarve despite exposing himself to four young children in a playground while was on the run from the German police for a separate sexual crime.
One parent fought tears in an interview last night, admitting, “If he had snatched one of the kids and put them in his van, we might never have seen them again.

“He could have gone anywhere. It is still something that haunts me. I felt very scared. I think we were very lucky. ‘
Nelia Bras, mother of one of the young people Brueckner reportedly pleaded for herself, added, “My daughter was eight at the time. He spoke to her in English and asked her, “What’s your name?”
“It is very traumatic to know that someone who has been associated with so many cases and may be a very dangerous man, stood so close to my little girl and spoke to her and snatched her or another child who was there . “
The series of new revelations about the German pedophile and its criminal past emerged in a half-hour investigation broadcast by Portuguese TV broadcaster RTP.
Presenter Sandra Felgueiras interviewed a couple who lived with Brueckner in Foral for three months in 2016 and gave him work.
She also spoke to Portuguese parents whose children were allegedly targeted by the 43-year-old in nearby San Bartolome de Messines three years ago.
Brueckner was never tried because the police called the park and found that he was wanted by the German police for child sexual abuse and possession of child pornography, and was eventually extradited.
The villa Oliver and Karin Stenard shared with the man who was kidnapped and murdered by German prosecutors Madeleine McCann was isolated Villa Bianca, the same property where he stayed with fellow German Nicole Fehlinger in 2007, when it was used as a children’s retreat with problems.
The couple revealed that Brueckner had admitted that she was Nicole’s boyfriend before leaving Portugal to return to Germany in 2009.

Oliver, born in Austria, told RTP program Sexta as 9 to call the police after ‘alcoholic’ Brueckner broke his nose in an attack on September 22, 2016 – but revealed that he was allowed to walk away without charges after police issued a European arrest warrant had not noticed already before his arrest for German sex crime.
He added in a bombshell revelation about the British detective: “The neighbor is an English police officer from Scotland Yard.
“He’s working with the Portuguese police for Scotland Yard. He was the neighbor at the time. ‘
Wife Karin, who admitted that like her husband, she knew he had a criminal past but never suspected he was a pedophile, added, “Christian Brueckner lived in the house in Foral when Madeleine McCann disappeared.
“Foral is a large area and there was nobody there at the time.
“I say he killed her and there was plenty of room to bury her. I think her body is buried there and I told the police. ‘
She shared how she asked Oliver to stop Brueckner to take care of their sheep as part of the work he did for them at the rented property they shared from July to September 2016.
She regretted, “When he worked for us as a gardener and handyman, he also had to feed the sheep with hay in the morning.
“One morning I saw him chasing the sheep and one in particular Wolflie.

“I called to him and he stopped, but when I said I saw him chasing the animal, he claimed he was just trying to stroke it.
“I told him I thought he was giving me bulls and I saw that he was behind it with my own eyes. I don’t know what he was trying to do. I thought he was drunk. I told Oliver afterwards that I didn’t want him to feed the sheep anymore because I didn’t like what I saw. ‘
The couple met Maddie McCann’s new suspect through fellow German Bernhard Piro, the owner of a demolition hammer where police confiscated a VW camper using the bum and described them as Christian’s “ close friend. ”
The fact that GNR agents had not properly monitored Brueckner after Karin called them after his fight with her husband led him to evade arrest for not discovering that a European arrest warrant had been registered for the German sex offense ten days earlier.
He remained a free man and was nine months earlier when he reportedly exposed himself to a group of young children aged eight to 12 in a nearby park.
He claimed that after being caught, he tried to urinate even though he was only a few feet from a public toilet and had his pants pulled down under a children’s slide.
The police made the necessary checks that evening and discovered that he was a wanted man.
The investigation into the flashy incident was reportedly halted after Brueckner’s extradition.
Carlos Cunha, whose child was involved with the children in the disturbing incident, said, “He didn’t really react from the beginning after he was caught.
“I only found out afterwards who he was or should be.”
Mrs. Elsa added, “He seemed very calm. I can imagine his face. He looked very strange. ‘
Another mother told the Portuguese TV program: “My daughter was very scared. She knows who this man is now. ‘
