Barmaid Lenta Johlitz, 34, told ITV News: "He said very loudly 'the child is dead! After all these years you wouldn't find such a corpse anyway'.

"That was the only situation where I look back and ask myself 'Why did he say that back then?'

She previously revealed how Christian B "lost it" when the missing youngster was mentioned – and said it was a "good thing" she was dead.

Lenta said: "He wanted us to stop. He cried out, ‘The child is dead now and that’s a good thing’, then he said: ‘You can make a body disappear quickly. Pigs also eat human flesh’.”

Christian B ran the kiosk selling drinks and snacks between 2012 and 2014 after returning to Germany from Portugal where he is feared to have snatched Madeleine.

His ex-colleagues at the newstand – just yards from a school – were left stunned by the outburst.

Bild editor Julian Reichelt told Good Morning Britain one had been questioned by the authorities over the row.

But police in the country are still waiting for the "knockout blow" that will allow prosecutors to charge him in connection with Madeleine's disappearance, it is claimed.

A school caretaker in Braunschweig has also told how the fiend showered pupils with toys and teddy bears as they walked past his shop in the morning.

Christian B was named as the prime suspect in Madeleine's disappearance this week with prosecutors in Germany investigating him "on suspicion of murder".

We are now able to show his picture in full in the UK after it was published in a German newspaper – as cops in both countries appeal for anyone who knows him to come forward.

German cops have sensationally revealed they believe Madeleine is dead and know how she was killed – despite no body being found.

The suspect has been branded a "sexual predator" who abused young girls and rapist banged up for attacking a 72-year-old tourist in Portugal.

He was first thrust into the frame in 2017 after allegedly confessing to abducting Madeleine in a bar.

German sources claim he boasted he had "snatched her" but didn’t say he had killed her.

Christian B – born in Germany in 1976 before moving to Portugal in his late teens – has a list of convictions for sexual abuse against children, drug offences and rape.


Police in Germany fear the drifter, who stole from hotels in Praia da Luz, may have snatched Madeleine after first entering the holiday home to raid it.

He said in 2013 he fantasised about wanting to "capture something small and use it for days",German newspaper Spiegel reports.

After one pal warned him it would be dangerous – causing Christian B to reply: "Oh, if the evidence is destroyed afterwards."
