POLICE hunting Madeleine McCann say they now know the identity of her killer.
They expect to swoop within days after British detectives unearthed new clues.
Last night a Portuguese police source said: “We now have a lot of crucial evidence and we believe we know who is behind the death of Madeleine.”
Police chiefs said the fresh clues had led them to pursue a major new line of inquiry and they are about to name new suspects.
The breakthrough comes as senior investigators will today get the results of forensic tests carried out by scientists in the UK.
Portuguese detectives insist they now believe Madeleine was killed inside her family’s holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.
The Portuguese police source said the results from forensic tests were “the final piece in the jigsaw”.
Brit sniffer dogs found specks of blood in the McCanns’ apartment.
