Madeleine McCann went missing in 2007.

Brueckner is now being charged for three rapes and two sexual assaults said to have been carried out on Portugal's Algarve coast from 2000 to 2017. According to prosecutor Ute Lindemann, Brueckner left one victim thinking he would behead her, whipped a woman in her 70s at least 20 times and made a girl vomit throughout the abuse.

Despite his terrifying crimes being read out in detail to the court, the suspect apparently showed no emotion.

The German native was born in 1976, though he was immediately taken from his mother since she was deemed unable to take care of her son. He was then adopted by Brigitte and Fritz Brueckner, a couple who shared two other adopted sons.

Brigitte previously spoke about how Christian did not seem to exhibit any signs of becoming the evil individual he is believed to be today. However, in school, Christian did not have many friends nor did teachers like him very much.

One of his former classmates described him as a "twisted loner" who they knew "would turn out bad." They even indicated how Christian would often pick fights with other students.

As he got older, his parents reportedly started to have a hard time raising him. After Fritz got into a car accident in 1992, Brigitte had to care for Christian alone. His behavior got to the point where Brigitte decided to send her son to a reform home for delinquent teenagers in Wurzburg, Bavaria.
