FREUD, MADELEINE McCANN, MURDOCH
Sir Clement Freud, grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, had a holiday home in Praia da Luz, in Portugal.
In July 2007, Clement Freud helped the parents of missing child Madeleine McCann by cooking them dinners in Praia da Luz and offering them drinks.
Initially when he wrote to them offering assistance they thought it was a hoax. (Clement Freud – Wikipedia)

Matthew Freud is head of Freud Communications, an international public relations firm in the United Kingdom.
Matthew Freud is a member of the ‘Chipping Norton set’ along with David Cameron, Christopher Shale (recently found dead) and Rebekah Brooks.
