In the letter, Brueckner branded himself the “most known bad person in the world”.

Brueckner began his five-page letter by saying: “Welcome to the biggest adventure you can imagine.”

He then continued, writing: “I’m the most-known bad person in the world and I did nothing – well almost nothing.”

The convicted rapist then reportedly said that he hadn’t abducted or killed “anyone”.

He went on further, adding that he hadn’t attacked anyone since he was 18 years old.

Brueckner allegedly said: “I made some silly mistakes when I was younger but who hasn’t?”

He then said that the police made him a suspect because of what he was doing at the time – including “something with kids when I was 17”.

Brueckner then went on to say that the police didn’t have proof that he was involved in the disappearance of Madeleine.

“And they still don’t have it,” he added.

According to the report, the 45-year-old went on to say that the German authorities were leaking information about him to portray him in a bad light.

“They have manipulated the truth in such an unprofessional way that I am laughing,” he wrote. “I still have not lost my sense of humour. Even in this critical situation. This is what keeps me alive.”

The letter was reportedly sent to an unidentified woman before the MailOnline obtained it.
