#Shakedown Unleashes on Sunday Night, Part 3

PDL

Prior to Madeleine going missing in 2007, there were few reports, if any, of violent crime in Praia da Luz [current population, roughly 3500].   In 2013, six years after her disappearance, it was announced that Scotland Yard would take over the McCann investigation.  Low and behold, victims of crime starting coming out of the woodwork.

From telegraph.co.uk:

A ten-year-old British girl was sexually assaulted in Praia da Luz two years before Madeleine McCann disappeared, detectives have revealed.  The attack took place in the “heart of the resort” in 2005, but details of the assault have only just been reported to police [8 years after the attack].

It is understood the victim came forward following an appeal by Scotland Yard last month in which police revealed a string of potentially linked sex assaults on young British girls across the Algarve between 2004 and 2006.

Few details of the assault in Praia da Luz were given, but it is thought the victim – who would now be aged 19 – may have only just revealed what happened to her in 2005.

It is one of five further sex assaults which have been reported to Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange since last month’s appeal, taking the total to nine.

I’ll concede, sometimes victims of sexual assaults don’t come forward right away out of fear.  But in this instance – it appears that everyone in the area who came forward to share their stories only did so once an “appeal” was made.  What are the odds?
