The Madeleine McCann suspect is apparently ‘cracking under the weight of suspicion’, reports say.

German police have probed Christian Brueckner about Madeleine‘s disappearance 14 years ago.

Earlier this week, reports claimed Brueckner wrote a letter criticising the investigation, saying they “should resign” for “persecuting an innocent person”.

However, detectives reportedly think his rant is a “clear sign” he’s cracking under pressure.

He had been living in a camper van near the town at the time of Madeleine’s disappearance in 2007.

Madeleine disappeared on May 3, 2007, from her bed in a holiday apartment at a resort in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Earlier this month, a prosecutor discussed the case becoming solved within months.

According to the Mirror, German prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters said: “We hope we can solve the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, although this will take several months.”
