Over this past weekend as seen in Bon Dia investigators dug once again near the Fisherman’s Huts and the area near the Pond. Since this search was done at the request of Prosecutor Jansen one wonders and speculates as to the motive behind this search. Many have speculated as to whether this was a search done off a tip, just grasping at straws or just a show to give the appearance of an investigation? A search in an area that the fireman had pain staking done a month previous when they attempted to drain the ponds. Some items were found; however, what does not seem coincidental is this area in so many occasions comes up as a place of interest where witnesses have claimed to have seen the suspects the night of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance.

(Translation) At around 7.30 in the morning, firemen started to to drain the water in a pond north of the Marriott, next to the fishermen’s huts. This was done at the request of Jansen, who heads the team investigating the case of Natalee Holloway. The reason why they decided to conduct a rigorous search was because this is the last place that suspect Joran v.d. Sloot was with Natalee Holloway. After draining 80% of the water, they used a crane to look through the mud and found different items. There was a handbag in which there was a headband. Aside from this, the bag was full of rocks, which indicates that the person who threw it in the pond didn’t want it to be found. Aside from the handbag and the headband, they found 2 cloth bags, a machete, 2 items of drug paraphernalia and a shoe. All the articles were in the mud and had to be washed to determine if they had anything to do with the investigation. The work lasted until nightfall. All articles were confiscated and now they will be further looked into to see if they are related to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Yesterday during the day a few divers dove in the the vicinity of the fishermen huts again to look for clues.
