Two Aruban Men Held On Reasonable Suspicion


Attorney says he expects clients to be accused of homicide

As per CNN, Prosecutors have decided to detain two suspects.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (CNN) — Prosecutors in Aruba decided to further detain two hotel security guards in the disappearance of an Alabama student based on what authorities called “a reasonable suspicion” they were involved in “criminal acts” related to the case.

Asked Tuesday if the men were to be charged with homicide and kidnapping, prosecution spokeswoman Vivian van der Biezen said, “I cannot confirm it. I think I will be able to confirm it tomorrow.”

Prosecutors decided to detain the suspects for another eight days. They are to appear in court Wednesday. Acting on a tip, police arrested the pair Sunday morning in the oil-refining town of San Nicolas.

Van der Biezen would not elaborate about evidence gathered in the investigation, but she did say that authorities would not have prolonged the detention if they only had circumstantial evidence.

Defense lawyer Chris Lejuez said he expects his clients to be formally accused of homicide, being accomplices to homicide, and of kidnapping leading to homicide.

      As a local from Aruba i am also very concerned about this situation. My prayers are with Natalee and her family and loved ones. I hope so much they’ll find her back alive, but of course everybody by now fears the worst. If they don’t find her alive or dead, they’ll have no case. The three boys are not off the hook, nor are the two security employees. In tonights local newsedition. Chris Lejuez said that most probably the 2 guards will not be formally charged with anything. For starters, the police arrested them unlawfully. Other technical mistakes have been concerning the arrest. Too many loose ends.
      Yesterday I read some one was upset about Aruba being put in such negative light, cuz Aruba is, in his view, a safe and clean place. Hey , I’m glad! Carlos n Charlie is the worst place to go. Of course they wait for the girls that are spending their “last night in Aruba”- night. This date raping or gang raping is going on for a long time now. The local victims don’t even go to police, cuz they’re too embarassed about the situation. And NOBODY is going to believe there was no consent. Because you WERE drinking, you were dancing on the tables. And what happens here is soo tragic. The boys wait right outside on you, in this dark back alley location, to push you in their car for one more last stop.
      Tourist will always come and go. But please girls, don’t mix and don’t do anything what here what you wouldn’t do at home.
      You cannot even trust yourself, so WHY trust another?? Be it in Aruba or elsewhere…
