CHRISTIAN B’s online chat history has revealed the prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case had disturbing paedophile fantasies.
German prosecutors are now certain Christian B is responsible for the toddler’s disappearance in 2007 and he is being investigated “on suspicion of murder” although he has not yet been charged.
The convicted rapist and paedophile allegedly discussed kidnapping and sexually abusing a child in a chatroom exchange in September 2013.
In one exchange with his online pal he reportedly claimed he would make a lot of films if he were to capture a “little one”.
While on the darknet in another exchange he is said to have written: “Capture something small and use it for days, that’s it,” reports RTL.
When a pal responded to warn him this could be dangerous, Christian B reportedly responded: “Oh, if the evidence is destroyed afterwards.”
It is not known if Christian B ever carried out this sick fantasy for real.
Cops became aware of the online chats after his then girlfriend reported him for an attack in 2015 and his home was searched.
Officers discovered a video camera with a memory card loaded with horrific images of child pornography.
When another of his properties was searched police found more memory sticks under the body of his dog.
More than 8,000 images and videos have been evaluated by investigators with most said to contain pictures or footage of abused infants, children or young people.
Around 100 files have been connected to Christian B and came across the chat logs while they were assessing the files.
Christian B, who cannot be legally name in full, was first thrust into the frame in 2017 after allegedly confessing to abducting Madeleine in a bar.
He was reportedly chatting to the friend in Germany when a TV report came on about the tenth anniversary of the girl’s disappearance and he suggested he knew what had happened to her.
German sources claim he boasted he had “snatched her” but didn’t say he had killed her.
Christian B then allegedly showed a video of himself raping a 72-year-old tourist in Portugal in 2005, which he was later convicted and jailed for eight years over.
A number of potential links have since arisen – including an alleged conversation about Madeleine in a chatroom before police began honing in on him in 2013.
It is not clear if it is the same chat as the one where he divulged his kidnapping fantasies.
Among the growing body of facts linking him to Madeleine’s disappearance is he was revealed to be living in a campervan in Praia da Luz in Portugal around the time the youngster vanished on May 3, 2007.
He also took a mysterious 30-minute phonecall just one hour before the disappearance and had also rented two homes in Portugal just miles from the Ocean Club where Madeleine was staying.
Christian B – born in Germany in 1976 before moving to Portugal in his late teens – has a list of convictions for sexual abuse against children, drug offences and rape.
Hans Christian Wolters, a spokesman for the Braunschweig Public Prosecutor’s Office, said previously: “With the suspect, we are talking about a sexual predator who has already been convicted of crimes against little girls and he’s already serving a long sentence.”
Police in Germany fear the drifter, who stole from hotels in Praia da Luz, may have snatched Madeleine after first entering the holiday home to raid it.
As well as the campervan, the drug dealer and burglar also been linked to a 1993 Jaguar XJR6 with a German number plate seen in Praia da Luz and surrounding areas in 2006 and 2007.
On May 4, 2007 – the day after Madeleine vanished – he got the Jaguar re-registered in Germany under someone else’s name although it is believed the vehicle remained in Portugal.
German police believe one of the two vehicles were used in the disappearance of Madeleine.
The suspect’s extensive rap sheet includes sex attacks on kids, indecent images, sexual coercion, theft and breaking and entering, reports Bild.
He was first convicted aged just 17 in Bavaria in 1994 for “abusing a child” and “performing sex acts in front of a child”.
