Family of Polish Woman Who Thinks She’s Missing Madeleine McCann Won’t Submit DNA, Psychic Says

The family of a Polish woman who says she may be missing toddler Madeleine McCann reportedly won’t take a DNA test to prove their parentage.

McCann’s birth parents have reportedly agreed to submit DNA for a test to determine if Julia Faustyna is their missing daughter, as CrimeOnline previously reported. Faustyna’s family has released a statement disputing much of their daughter’s claims, and a medium and private detective representing her has now told the UK tabloid The Sun that the family won’t submit DNA for testing.

Fia Johansson, who is also a psychologist, told The Sun that she is urging Faustyna’s mother to take the test to avoid “disrupt[ing] the peace” of Madeleine’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann.

“We want to be very respectful to the McCann family, and respect the privacy of them and their kids while we don’t know exactly who Julia is,” said Johansson, who goes by “PersianMedium” on social meda. “My feeling is that we need to force the mother or a member of Julia’s family to take the DNA test rather than disrupt the peace of Kate and Gerry, which is not necessary.

“If a current family member will take a DNA test we could solve this. But they are refusing to. I have been personally talking to Julia’s mother and told her we will make her safe and secure in any way she needs but she is still refusing to take the test. She claims she has Julia’s birth certificate but our worry is that you can easily forge this.”

In their statement, Faustyna’s family said that Faustyna herself took her birth certificate and family photos with her when she moved out of the house. Madeleine, who disappeared from a Portuguese resort in 2007, would be 18 now, but Faustyna is reportedly 21 — although she says she isn’t certain of her birth date.

Johansson, who told The Sun that she has helped solve murders, find terrorists, and helped a member of the royal family get out of a blackmail plot, reportedly predicted that Madeleine was still alive in 2019. German and Portuguese officials say that Christian Brueckner, currently serving a 7-year prison sentence in Germany for raping an elderly American woman in 2005, is the prime suspect in the then-4-year-old girls disappearance.

Faustyna, who also goes by Julia Wendell or Julia Wendelt, says she remembers being sexually abused as a child and that Brueckner was her abuser.
