Brigitte said at her bungalow in Bergtheim, south Germany: “I don’t know anything about it. I don’t want to know anything.”

Christian, one of three boys adopted by the couple, became a wild teen. He stole cars and behaved inappropriately with young girls.

When a crash left Fritz in a wheelchair they couldn’t cope and he was sent to a home for delinquents.

He was sent to live in a home for delinquent boys in 1992 when he was aged 15.

The following year he committed his first sex crime when he assaulted a girl in a play area and flashed at another one.

Neighbours at the former family home in the village of Bergtheim yesterday told of their shock that Christian had been linked to the Maddie case.

An ex-neighbour said: “Fritz and Brigitte were very kind. What happened with the boy’s a catastrophe.”
