Natalee Holloway Updates; June 24, 2005


From The Birmingham News, PB High School grad prays her daughter is still alive

The mother of Natalee Holloway, an Alabama teenager missing for three weeks in Aruba, says she prays that her daughter has only been kidnapped, and is still alive somewhere on the Caribbean island.

“Isn’t it strange that I should be praying that my daughter has been kidnapped?” Beth Holloway Twitty said from her hotel room in Aruba, in a telephone interview Thursday with the Pine Bluff Commercial.

Twitty is the former Beth Reynolds, a 1978 graduate of Pine Bluff High School, and her mother, Ann Reynolds, still lives in Pine Bluff. Twitty, a speech therapist, and her husband live in Mountain Brook, Ala., near Birmingham, with Natalee, 18, and their 16-year-old son, Matt.

Boy’s father also arrested as suspect in Aruba case

Video from MSNBC of Aruban prosecutor’s spokesperson Mariaine Croes

This is very interesting as Mariaine Croes says, “Paulus Van der Sloot [he] was arrested and being held under the ‘reasonable suspicion’ of involvement in the disappearance of Miss Holloway”.

Just a reminded from last night we posted from Fox News; Hannity & Colmes, Mariaine Croes said the following:

“Paulus Van der Sloot is being held in suspicion of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, NOT THE COVER UP. He is being held on the same charges as the previously four detained suspects.”

Also from last nights, Larry King Live, Prosecutors office spokesperson, Mariane Croes, said the following:

“Paulus Van der Sloot was arrested on the suspicion of premeditated murder”

Transcript from Larry King can be found here.

KING: And why are they suspects?

CROES: At this point the general description is that they are suspected of being involved in the disappearance of Ms. Holloway. That’s the general description. But because when we arrest somebody, you have to have a reasonable suspicion of specific crimes, so at this point all the suspects are arrested on the first crime of premeditated murder.

Just not sure what to make of these comments from the Arban Prosecutors office. The prosecutors office is not stressing a cover up, but actual initial involvement. Those are pretty strong charges. Either they have something or have found some huge inconsistencies, someone is singing like a canary or this is one of the biggest bluffs I have ever seen.

      wow…..this is getting stranger by the minute……seems like its all coming together and the family will have answers soon, OR this is just another halt in the case…..any word on the equu search yet??????

      It’s hard to do, but…if we could just hear facts without the colorful analysis, maybe we (as amateurs) could solve the cast! Fat chance, huh?

      5 suspects…2 former suspects…1 missing lady. It doesn’t add up…

    3. Simian on June 24th, 2005 12:12 pm

      Equusearch is here…they hope to have soemthing to between 7 to 10 days.

    4. f* on June 24th, 2005 12:16 pm

      Good luck to equusearch!!

      I guess we all need to have faith that the FBI is doing everything as fast as they can… american’s are so impatient! :)

      After hearing all of the recent developments, I have no pitty for the boys in jail and their families. With their story changing….come on!

      Suposively the mother said” he was afraid of getting in trouble for sneaking out of the house” didn’t he have his own apt???? And it was okay for him to be out at a bar till 1pmish?

      Hopefully more news will come out….and hopefully natalee will be found.

      The Holloway Family, you are in my families prayers.

      Two things:

      1. I hope Equusearch is successful in their work, in locating Miss Holloway…alive or otherwise…AND…I commend their volunteers!

      2. I really wish they’d not have used the name “Equusearch” and just remained an anonymous search team…even though they’re a non-profit organization (I think), the cynic in me wonders if they’re not using this as a springboard into the limelight. Sorry.

    7. SingleMomof2 on June 24th, 2005 12:25 pm

      I am sure they are using this partly as a chance to get some publicity. But if that is what it takes to get more people involved to get this case solved, then so be it. I also applaud the volunteers.

    8. Captain_Chinbeard on June 24th, 2005 12:27 pm

      I agree, SMof2…if that’s what it takes, so be it. However, I’m still not ready to condemn any of the Kalpoes or VdS family…I need some evidence!

      I can’t find the link to the forum here,..interesting post on Theories and Speculations using the names of thre people involved.. JORAN VAN DER SLOOT, using the letters in his name several words can be found, among them, ORANJSTADT, RAPE, NOORD AREA, “SAND OVER SEA AND/OR TOOLS POOL”. REASON, TRUST, LOVER. Also REASON)able) DNA. ARREST and STAND (stand trial)
      TRESPASS, LOOTER, and SLANDER also come forth.

      Adding his father,PAULUS ANDREAS VAN DER SLOOT, other words appear. LUPUS (wolf) AND LOVER,” PULL” and ” ORDER”

    10. Selena on June 24th, 2005 12:30 pm

      His mother’s name ANITA VAN DER SLOOT adds another dimension to the riddle. LOVED VAIN SON, and LOVED IN VAIN. HEr name is one letter short of the word NAIEV(E) but DENIAL is there. Also STRAIN.

    11. Selena on June 24th, 2005 12:34 pm

      the Kalpoes have another view. DEEPAK KAPLOE. KEEP PAL,and the word DOPE, his brother, SATISH KAPLOE, has the following combinations, STASH, SPLASH. along with HOPE and HEAL, and HELP. Together the folowing words are found. POOL, KEPT, and LOOK. Just an observation….
