A Polish woman called Julia Wendell has gone viral after claiming to be Madeleine McCann, the missing British girl who disappeared from a holiday resort in Portugal in 2007 when she was three years old.
The case that captivated the world’s attention was never solved, and there are numerous opinions as to what actually occurred.
Kate and Gerry McCann, Madeleine’s parents, have always maintained that she was kidnapped after they left her and her siblings alone in their holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, to eat at a nearby restaurant.
Following the identification of German prisoner Christian Brueckner as a possible suspect in Madeleine’s abduction in 2020 and subsequent confirmation in 2022, the case experienced a dramatic resurgence.
According to reports, Brueckner is a serial burglar with a history of committing sex crimes against young females. He is currently in prison for the rape of a 72-year-old woman and has been charged with numerous sex offenses alleged to have occurred between 2000 and 2007.
However, there has been a new twist in the story as a 21-year-old Polish lady, Julia Wendell, has emerged with claims that she is Madeleine.
Wendell has attempted to back up her claim with social media “evidence,” including side-by-side comparisons of physical traits she shares with Madeleine.
At the weekend, Wendell created an Instagram account called “Help me, I need to talk with Kate and Gerry McCann” – the username is “iammadeleinemccan”.
Not only does Wendell describe how she and the missing Madeleine share certain physical similarities, such as the renowned rare eye defect and other facial features, but she also claims to recall little to nothing of her childhood.
“I have lived a tough life and suffered a lot of trauma,” Wendell said in a statement to the Daily Star. My abuser was a German paedophile who was a suspect in the Madeleine McCann investigation,” she added.
“I had not heard of this case until I started asking my parents questions about my childhood as I have little to no memory of it. The memories are all very blurry and when I have had conversations with my parents, things don’t seem to add up and they always try to change the subject.”
And, yes, the alleged abuser is believed to be the aforementioned Christian Bruckner.
According to the most recent reports, Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry, are eager to follow up on the lead and may choose to take Julia up on her offer to conduct a DNA test.
Julia affirmed via her Instagram page: “Thank you for your support! Kate and Gerry McCann agreed to DNA test!”
The 21-year-old has also disclosed how her own family has abandoned her, calling her “horrible” for giving the McCanns false hope.
