The Polish woman who argued that she Madeleine McCann is, then is not the missing girl from Britain. According to international media reports DNA tests have confirmed that 21-year-old Julia Wendell is indeed from Poland and has no British ancestry.
“Although it is impossible to say for sure without the DNA results of the parents [Gerry en Kate McCann, asook Wendell se ouers], Julia’s DNA results testify to her origin,” said Dr. According to Fia Johansson, a private investigator who assisted Wendell Sky News said.
“The DNA tests showed no connection with Britain or even Germany.”
Johansson has to the publication RadarOnline said Wendell does have a small percentage of Russian and Lithuanian ancestry, but that she is unequivocally from Poland.
Madeleine is in 2007 as driejarige in Portugal kidnapped when she was on vacation with her family. If she is still alive, she will now be 19 years old.
Although many people have claimed over the years that they are the missing Madeleine, Wendell, who also uses the names Julia Faustyna and Julie Wandelt, made headlines with her claims due to similarities in her and Madeleine’s appearance.
This includes a mark in her right eye similar to that of Madeleine, a gap between their front teeth, similarities in terms of their face, ear and lip shapes, as well as freckles which, according to Wendell, can be found in the same places on their bodies.
Wendell also recently appeared on the American talk show Dr Phil appeared, where she discussed her beliefs that she could be Madeleine.
She evoked early memories from her childhood and shared photos to back up her claims.
Wendell also said on the show that she wanted no contact with her Polish parents, regardless of the outcome of the DNA tests. She told Dr. Phil said she is convinced that her Polish mother is not her biological mother.
However, her Polish family argued from the beginning that Wendell’s claims were false and that she made the whole story up, among other things to get attention.
However, Johansson says Wendell truly believed she could be Madeleine, and says her search for the truth is not in vain.
She believes that this has put the spotlight on Madeleine’s case anew and prompted investigators to pay attention to the case again.
In the meantime, Wendell apparently moved in with her Polish father.
