In 2008, a year after their daughter, Madeleine, went missing, Gerry and Kate McCann hired a security consultant with impressive global connections. His name was Kevin Halligen, and his CV spoke for itself. He was the CEO of a highly successful security firm with offices in Washington DC. The McCanns had every reason to have faith in him.
Unfortunately, Halligen’s credentials were eventually exposed as bogus. Though his team did carry out a thorough investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance, he never got involved on the ground. Was he using his $1 million fee – taken from a fund built by public donations – to live the high life?
Halligen claimed to be a real-life Jack Bauer. He was nothing of the sort. While the programme fails to adequately explain exactly what happened, it does feature an interview with Halligen himself. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he says the facts have been grossly distorted.
