That's what Gonçalo Amaral said in a recent interview to Judite de Sousa in the "8'Clock News".
Amaral elaborated by saying that in his opinion Porto’s police does not have much of chance (in solving the riddle). These events took place in the south of the country and they are based in the far north.
In spite of their competence and good will, Porto cannot possibly have any kind of advantage, simply because they were far removed from the scene – not just in terms of terrain (geography and demographics) but in terms of time and circumstance.
Theoretically, he said, is not a bad idea to have a team which is detached (far) from the events (both geographically and in time) but ultimately they have no chance (because they were far from the epicentre of events in the first place).
Furthermore, he added that Porto's sole expert was his ex-colleague, Dra. Helena Monteiro, who dealt with a well known case; the case of the girl from Lamego that went missing and was then found dead on the road access to Régua.
"That was no doubt an important case", he said. "They found her dead in the very place she had been laying for more than a month where they eventually located her with the help of a GPS device and that was that.
Now, to come and say they have greater experience..."
""There are too many pages, too many indicia, too many things to read... and sometimes it is difficult to read in between the lines (enigmatic tone). That is what I think..."
