A rather ghoulish insight into the burgeoning tragedy industry in today’s Herald, from Calum MacRae, the webmaster in charge of the “Find Madeleine McCann” website, which as it turns out is being run from a lock-up garage in Ullapool:
Calum is already working on new ventures after spotting a market in missing-person websites. Last week he contacted the family of missing schoolgirl Rosemary Edwards, from Hampshire, after her father made an emotional TV appeal. He said: “I don’t think we should be making money out of it, but I would love to do more stuff like this. We phoned up to see if they wanted a website for that missing girl, but they haven’t called back.”
How rude of them.
