A woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann has recently made waves on social media with her sensational clips.
The woman, Julia Wendell, hails from Poland and asserts that she is the girl who went missing from Portugal in 2007 when she was just three years old.
Despite the fact that Madeleine’s disappearance has never been solved, Wendell has repeatedly attempted to prove her identity by sharing what she claims is “evidence” online.
In a recent appearance on the talk show Dr. Phil, Wendell answered several questions about her identity while awaiting a DNA test to confirm whether her claims are true.
During her interview with Dr. Phil, Wendell claimed that she never bonded with her mother, who would often avoid discussing missing pieces of her childhood.
Additionally, Wendell explained that she has no birth certificate or photographs of her mother when she was pregnant. Wendell also noted that the first six pages of her Polish child health book are mysteriously missing.
Dr. Phil pointed out that Wendell shares some physical markings with McCann, including a mark on her face and a defect in her iris.
Wendell’s earliest memory, she revealed, was of being on a beach and seeing turtles and children. She also remembers light-colored buildings and sunlight on those buildings.
As Dr. Phil noted, this memory is eerily similar to the location where Madeleine McCann was last seen alive.
Wendell also disclosed that she was s*xually abused by a man named Peter Ney, who was later convicted. According to her, she believes that Ney might be related to Martin Ney, an international child trafficker and serial killer who was suspected in the Madeleine McCann case.
Despite her certainty about her identity, Wendell’s family disagrees. They shared a statement with Dr. Phil, stating that for them, it is clear that Julia is their daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin, and step-niece.
They have memories and photographs to support this, and Julia also has access to these photographs since she took them from the family home along with her birth certificate and numerous hospital discharges.
They expressed devastation over the current situation and the threats and lies that Julia has told, and they remain certain that she is not Madeleine.
As for Wendell’s DNA sample, Dr. Phil questioned why she had not gone to Scotland Yard to have it tested, stating that it could be easily resolved. However, Wendell responded that she would be willing to submit the sample if her ancestry results reveal that her roots are from Britain.
The Madeleine McCann case has remained unsolved for over a decade, and the possibility of someone claiming to be the missing girl is sure to raise many questions and doubts.
As the investigation continues, it remains to be seen whether Wendell’s claims will be confirmed or debunked, and whether the mystery surrounding Madeleine’s disappearance will ever be solved.
