The results of the long-awaited DNA test which was to confirm whether the 21-year-old girl named Julia Wendell was in fact Madeleine McCann are finally here.
Julia Wendell from Poland has gone viral after sensationally claiming that she is Madeleine McCann, who went missing from an apartment in Praia da Luz, in Portugal, while her parents were out having dinner. At the time of her disappearance, Madeleine was just 4 years old, and the search for her never stopped.
Julia gathered over a million followers on her Instagram account named “Help me, I need to talk with Kate and Gerry McCann,” with the username “iammadeleinemccan.” Some of the evidence she shared in support of her claims were certain physical similarities with the missing Madeleine, like the famous rare eye defect and other facial features. As of her childhood, Julia said she remembered little to nothing.
In statements made to the Daily Star, Julia said:“I have lived a very hard life and suffered a lot of trauma, my abuser was a German paedophile who was a suspect in the Madeleine McCann investigation.
“I had not heard of this case until I started asking my parents questions about my childhood as I have little to no memory of it. The memories are all very blurry and when I have had conversations with my parents, things don’t seem to add up and they always try to change the subject.”
Further, Julia said, “I don’t remember being taken away. I mean, I don’t remember almost my entire childhood… I have asked for pictures of when my mum was pregnant with me, other medical records and any pictures from my childhood and she never shows them, she just always tells me I’m crazy.
In order to draw even more attention, Julia fled Poland and relocated to the US. She even made an appearance on the popular talk-show Dr. Phil.
The results of the DNA test show that Julia is not Madeleine. It has further been revealed that Julia is of Polish heritage, with some Lithuanian and Romanian heritage.
Speaking to RadarOnline, Dr. Fia Johansson said: “She is absolutely 100 percent from Poland. She is a small percentage of Lithuanian and Russian but the test results show she is Polish.”
Even before the results were being published, Dr. Johansson, who has been given power of attorney over Julia, said her “gut feeling” told her that her client isn’t the missing child.
“We learned a few things, one being that Julia’s mum is in fact now believed to be her mum, so she is not Madeleine McCann,” Dr. Johansson said.
“They’re not 100% but they believe that Julia’s mum is in fact her mum. They’re questioning her father’s side. They’re checking into that, that’s part of what they’re doing with the DNA.
“But Julia’s mum is in fact her mum is what they’re believing and she is not in fact Madeleine McCann.”
Recently, the search for Madeleine has been extended to 12 more months and £302,470 funding has been approved, which gave fresh hope to her parents.
We truly hope this case will eventually be solved.
