Frances Ellen Byrd, the dark haired girl, on the Greta Van Susteren Show on Fox tonight seemed to change her story. When she had been interviewed previously, she had nodded vigorously in agreement at the following statement.
VAN SUSTEREN: And Ruth, how did you happen to notice him? What was it about him that caught your attention?
MCVAY: He didn’t. He was sitting at our blackjack table, and he just seemed like a normal teenager. He wasn’t flirting. He wasn’t really outgoing at all. And Natalee, just in passing, introduced herself and walked off. And nothing was strange or out of the ordinary about him at all.
VAN SUSTEREN: How is it, Ruth, that both Joran and Natalee both ended up at Carlos and Charlie’s?
MCVAY: He came with his friends. He had told us that night that Sunday was not a fun night on the island and that no one goes out. So we found it ironic that he showed up.
Tonight Frances Ellen Byrd said on the Greta show that the very first time that Natalee saw Joran was at Carlos’n Charlie’s, the night she disappeared. This raises some concerns on our discussion board and at the editorial offices.
When we have the transcript, we will add it to this post.
