Prime suspect in Madeleine McCann case ruled out of involvement in German child’s rape and murder

THE prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case has been ruled out of involvement in a child’s rape and murder.

The DNA of Christian B, 43, was no match for that found at the scene of 11-year-old Claudia Ruf’s 1996 death in his native Germany.

It comes after cops in Portugal failed to match the convicted paedophile to the rape of Irish tour guide Hazel Behan, 37.

A source said: “It is a setback, there’s a sense of disappointment as this is the second time.”

Madeleine disappeared on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.

Officials in Germany say they have “concrete evidence” she is dead.

Christian B is in jail after being convicted of raping a woman of 72 but is appealing.
