DNA in car 'matches Madeleine's'Tuesday, September 11, 2007
A sample taken from the boot of the hire car used by Madeleine McCann's parents is a "99% match" for the missing girl's DNA, a report claims.
The dramatic claim comes as Portuguese police prepare to hand their file on the case to the public prosecutor for him to consider whether to bring charges against her parents.
Tests returned from the Forensic Science Service (FSS) in Birmingham on a specimen taken from the McCanns's Renault Scenic showed it was a full match of Madeleine's DNA, unnamed sources told Sky News.
The results prove that the girl's body was in the boot of the car, which was not hired until 25 days after she went missing, the sources said.
But Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa, spokesman for the police investigation, denied the report to Portuguese journalists.
Alipio Ribeiro, head of the investigative Policia Judiciaria, also suggested that the forensic tests had not been conclusive.
In Britain, Kate and Gerry McCann faced fresh distress on Monday after social services held talks with police about their other children, two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie.
Police had planned to submit their file to Algarve-based public prosecutor Jose Cunha de Magalhaes e Meneses on Monday, but it will now be delivered this morning, Mr Sousa said.
