|Chief investigator Redwood telling the McCanns the happy news about the e-fits - October 2013|
It would take too much time to explain the astounding bad luck the McCanns experienced with regard to the private investigators they hired.
1. Metodo3 who - as can be read in the post 'Socratic questioning of Metodo's methods', and in the translation of the chapter dealing with the investigation in 'The Smokescreen' by Julian Peribanez and Antonio Tamarit - employed at least two honest detectives who co-wrote the book exposing the fraud committed by Metodo3.
2. Not long after Metodo3 were out of the picture, the McCanns hired Oakley International, which turned out to be run by a Walter Mitty type figure, who also happened to employ a number of honest detectives. On of whom was Henry Exton who had the e-fits drawn up by members of the Smith family.
3. The next set of detectives have some claim to fame as their company Alphaig Ltd - was not even registered at the time they were contracted to search for Madeleine McCann and when it was registered their headquarters appeared to be a humble cottage in North Wales.
However, back to the e-fits:
