Fox report that the Aruban authorities said that there was physical evidence. This was said as part of a short update about the prosecutor saying they could prosecute without a body. Mostly like these are reassurances that the case is not stalled and that they are not covering up anything, rather than an announcement of new info.
If this is true, then probably all three will continue to be held for another 60 days starting Tues, July 5th. If this is true, there may be enough evidence for a trial date to be set. If not true, all three may be out on Tuesday, July 5th. (Thanks to contributors from the board.)

Rep: Why not?
Aruban Police Superintendent Jan van der Straten: Because I know the details of the investigation and you don’t !
