Julia Faustyna flees Poland after facing death threats over viral ‘I am Madeleine McCann’ Instagram account




The Polish woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann was forced to delete her viral Instagram account after receiving death threats, it has been revealed.

Julia Faustyna is now in the United States, according to an Instagram post by her spokesperson, psychic medium and private investigator Dr Fia Johansson.

Johansson revealed in an Instagram post over the weekend that Faustyna had received death threats and had to be removed from her home in Poland for her own safety.

The threats started on Snapchat, Johansson said, before spreading to other social media platforms including Instagram and Facebook.

Faustyna faced “a severe and credible death threat” including a “price on her head”.

Authorities have taken the threat “very seriously”, Johansson said, and Faustyna was immediately removed from her hometown.

Another story revealed Faustyna’s parents have now blocked her calls.

“They didn’t care about her daughter,” Johansson captioned the video.

In the video, Faustyna attempts to call her parents and ask them to meet her and undertake a DNA test.

Account deleted

Faustyna unexpectedly deleted her account last week.

The 21-year-old has used the account @iammadeleinemccann to post photos and videos comparing her physical appearance and childhood experiences as supposed evidence she is the missing British child who vanished on holiday in 2007.

The account quickly went viral and was the subject of heavy criticism and trolling from those who dismissed her claims and said the stunt was an attention-seeking hoax.

As of March 3, the Instagram account was no longer active, with users who tried to view the page greeted with a message saying: “Sorry, this page isn’t available”.

“The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed”.

Faustyna had posted side-by-side childhood photos of both her and McCann saying they shared the same eye defect, a trait now synonymous with the missing child.

“I have a defect in my eye, in the same eye, the kind of defect Madeleine had. Except that in my case it’s faded more and more every year,” she wrote.

She also claimed that she had post-traumatic amnesia as a result of being sexually abused as a child by a paedophile she does not know the identity of but recognises as facial composite image 4B from the Find Madeleine website.

The 21-year-old said she had few memories of her childhood, with the earliest memories she could remember being on holiday.

“But I completely don’t recall my mother being there, for example, or my stepfather, much less my dad,” she claims.

Following the account’s deletion, Johansson posted a photo of the pair eating breakfast together where they both appeared to be in good spirits.

Johansson recently confirmed that Faustyna had taken a DNA test which she said could link her to a number of missing persons cases.

Last month a new theory emerged that Faustyna may in fact be another missing child — Swiss girl Livia Schepp.

Twins Alessia and Livia Schepp were six when they were abducted from Switzerland in 2011 by their father, who committed suicide in Italy days later. When police found the body, there was no sign of the girls.

It was reported at the time that Schepp had allegedly sent a letter to his wife the same day he committed suicide admitting he had killed his daughters, however no bodies have ever been found.

“Julia has taken a DNA test and we are investigating if it’s possible to check her DNA with that of missing Livia,” Johansson told The Sun.

“We are investigating all possibilities at this stage.

“I’ve spoken to her about this and she is open to the fact she could be any missing child out there — not just Madeleine. Julia just wants to know the truth about who she is.”

There are discrepancies between the ages of McCann, Schepp and 21-year-old Faustyna — but the Polish woman believes it is possible her true age has been falsified in fraudulent documents.

Faustyna’s parents appear to have released a statement on Polish Missing Person’s website Missing Years Ago disputing those claims, citing mental illness and a desire for attention, adding that they are working with local police.

But Johansson has hit back at the website which published the statement, saying it is unofficial and may not have even come from Faustyna’s parents.
