(AP) Aruba May Prosecute in Missing Teen case
ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) Ã¢â‚¬” Aruba’s attorney general said Thursday she could prosecute a case in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway even if the Alabama teenager’s body is not found.
Caren Janssen also said investigators have found no evidence to suggest that the 18-year-old Holloway, who disappeared May 30, was dead.
“There are no traces or facts to come to the conclusion that Natalee is no longer alive,” Attorney General Caren Janssen told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
So I guess maybe Paul Van der Sloot’s legal advice may not be 100% full proof? Seems like Prosecutor Caren Janssen may have other ideas.
“But that doesn’t mean we can’t prosecute without a body. It’s difficult but not impossible.”
Aruban officials have said previously a murder conviction is possible without a body, but the case requires strong evidence such as a confession, reliable statements and forensic evidence of wrongdoing.
