Police in Portugal are investigating an anonymous letter and a map claiming to show where missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann's body is buried.

The letter, sent to Dutch paper De Telegraaf, identifies an area 15km (9.3 miles) from where Madeleine vanished.

It strongly resembles another letter sent to the same newspaper last year, accurately pinpointing where two missing Belgian girls were buried.

Ch Insp Olegario de Sousa said officers were "checking the information".

Interesting article and I'll certainly be following the story but why is this in Parapsychology?

The BBC article is from 13 June 2007 (about a month after Madeleine disappeared). It's probably safe to conclude by now that her body was not found where the anonymous letter claimed it was buried...

If someone claimed to have knowledge of where a body was buried that turned out to be true, wouldn't most police be thinking they had something to do with the crime?
