He is the main suspect in the Maddie McCann case and, for several months, Christian Brückner has even been accused of the murder of the girl. It is therefore no surprise that investigators are keeping a close eye on this pedophile. Thus, and as reported by the British tabloid The Mirror on Tuesday, August 17, he was transferred to a new, highly secure prison. He was placed in solitary confinement in Oldenburg prison, not far from Bremen, in north-western Germany.
A prison facility surrounded by surveillance cameras and fitted with reinforced safety glass windows, allowing guards to keep watch over inmates. The prison is also surrounded by a wall nearly seven meters long. So many elements that make Christian Brückner’s escape impossible, although a prisoner has managed to escape in the past after befriending a guard. Contacted by our colleagues from across the Channel, the lawyer of the principal concerned Fernand Fuelscher refused to explain the reasons for the transfer of his client.
Why is Christian Brückner in prison?
Previously detained in Kiel, Christian Brückner was confronted with intimidation from other prisoners who learned of his connection to the Maddie McCann case. He also broke a few ribs during a fight with guards near Braunschweig. He is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence for raping a 72-year-old American woman in the Algarve in 2005. His most recent conflict with the law as, in the 1990s, he served a two-year sentence of imprisonment for having abused a child. He fled to Portugal after being released from prison, which leads investigators to believe that he could well have attacked little Maddie McCann.
