MADELEINE McCann suspect Christian B beat his teen girlfriend “black and blue” after she found images of child sex abuse on his laptop.
His then girlfriend, pictured for the first time, was just 17 and he was 37. They had been dating for 18 months.
Mum-of-two Lenta Johlitz, 34, who worked at his kiosk in Braunschweig, Germany, said of her: “She was just 17 years old. She was very small, very slim like a child.
“We asked if she was OK because he was very old, she said, ‘It’s fine — I love him, he gives me what I don’t get from other men’.
“Then she found some pictures of children on his laptop and she wanted to talk to him about them.
“He strangled her and she was black and blue everywhere. She ended up in hospital. After that she ended the relationship.
“She did not tell the police about the pictures. She was very afraid. Even now she is afraid — she didn’t go to court. When he drank, Christian became very aggressive.”
MADDIE ‘IS DEAD’
Prosecutor says he has proof Maddie is dead – but can’t charge suspect yet
The girl, now 25, was pictured with the pervert at a party to celebrate the opening of his kiosk.
His hand was on her hip as she wore an off-the-shoulder red dress.
A source who was also at the party said: “He was giving it the big man, displaying his pretty blonde girlfriend who was besotted with him.”
