VISIT TO JORAN V.D. SLOOT TODAY WAS SUDDENLY CANCELED
Joran allegedly had scratches on his chin the day after the disappearance
As could be concluded from an interview with Natalee’s mom, Beth Twitty, given yesterday on Fox News Channel, the mother of Natalee Holloway made it known that she, together with the father of Natalee, Dave Holloway, had a confirmed visit for this morning at ten o’clock with Joran v.d. Sloot, at KIA, but yesterday afternoon she was suddenly informed that the visit will not happen.
The question that remains open is that if Joran v.d. Sloot insists that he is innocent, what fear can he have to talk with the father and mother of Natalee.
Also was questioned yesterday the bone that had meat on it, that a tourist found a few days ago and that until today there was no indication or information on this matter.
People of the Equusearch went to find information at the police about this since the bone was in the hand of the police and could not find any information, since it seems that no one knows about this bone and that those who would be working on this are apparently on vacation.
Equusearch will search where this bone was found and all beaches.
Yesterday a barrel was taken out from the sea while a great amount of tourists looked on, but this apparently did not yield any fruits on the investigation either, from what can be found out until now. From the interviews yesterday night came forward that there were also wounds or scratches that Joran v.d. Sloot allegedly had on his face the day of the disappearance.
The mother of a International School classmate allegedly declared that on that day Joran would have had scratches on his chin.
That day the mother of Natalee also talked with Joran, but it was dark and she herself did not notice scratches or wounds on the face of Joran in the darkness.
A forensic medic [doctor?--arubagirl] stated that the day that Joran and his friends presented themselves at the police station, the police should have made a note of this, examining their bodies etc. and even look for scratches under their nails, which has not happened either, according to all indications.
