Could the Madeleine McCann case finally be solved?

Or is this just another wild goose chase?

Last week, Portuguese prosecutors suddenly reopened their investigation into the 2007 disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann.

British and Portuguese media now report that the leading suspect is Euclides Monteiro, an immigrant who was a restaurant worker at the Ocean Club resort in Praia da Luz, which is where nearly 4-year old Madeleine was last seen.  Mr. Monteiro was fired shortly before her disappearance and may have kidnapped the girl as an act of revenge against his former employer, according to the Portuguese daily Correio da Manha.

Another theory is that Monteiro stumbled upon Madeleine when he was robbing her parents' room. Monteiro was a heroin addict, reports the Daily Mirror, and was fired for stealing from the resort.
