In order to persuade the Madeleine McCann suspect to confess, an undercover detective was’sent into jail’

German cops are ‘100% sure' Brueckner, 45, murdered Madeleine in May 2007. According to The Mirror, a cop went undercover to try to elicit a confession.

Former acquaintance told investigators that Brueckner had admitted to being involved in Madeleine's disappearance.

The juvenile sex offender supposedly revealed the kidnapping while vacationing in the Algarve with his pal.
Investigators dispatched a disguised officer into Wolfenbüttel, where Brueckner was being imprisoned at the time, but the trap apparently failed.

Prosecutors in Braunschweig have declined to comment.

Brueckner is presently in isolation in another jail.
A 72-year-old American woman was raped in Portugal and Brueckner was recognised as the key suspect in the McCann case.

He was observed near the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz, where the McCanns were vacationing, in the days before Madeleine vanished.

However, German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said he does not have DNA linking Brueckner to Madeleine's murder.

'Strong new evidence' hoped to indict Brueckner in the McCann case by Christmas.
Kate and Gerry McCann previously stated they are ‘in the dark' regarding their daughter's disappearance.

However, Mr Wolters believes she is dead and has sworn to ‘never give up hope'.

‘We are convinced we have the individual who stole and killed your daughter,' he told them last month.

‘We lack a body and DNA but have other proof. The data points to no other conclusion.

‘I can't tell you why we think she's dead. But we have no choice. There is no chance for her.'
