According to the Dave Holloway during my telephone conversation with him, he appeared that his thought process when dealing with the prosecution of the suspects in his daughters disappearance is to “stay the course”. Dave Holloway said to me that he was upset that Joran Van der Sloot, and the Deepak brothers were released from prison. He was a bit skeptical of the timing of the release as many eyes were turned. However, he made it very clear that this is a long race and it is not over.
When asked about the case and whether things were going fast enough for him, Dave’s response was as follows:
“We have two years to do something and gain evidence if this is a murder case. The prosecution better have the evidence to go forward to try the case or wait until they do. I do not want this to be a mock trial and there be double jeopardy if there is no real evidence. I do not want the Prosecution to jump to any conclusions because they feel they have to do something.”
Dave Holloway was also quick to say that he appreciated all that Scared Monkeys has done in keeping the story of his missing daughter front and center and the thoughts and prayers that have been expressed.
I also asked Dave Holloway about whether he had any concerns over the fact that the media is not covering Natalee’s story much any more if not at all in some cases. Dave said,
“Its not about the media, it’s about Natalee. I know the news coverage comes in cycles and maybe they will come back again to covering Natalee. Some have called me and said they have not forgotten us.”
Dave then went on to tell me that he completely understands the media’s pressures of covering the news and if it were not for the media in the beginning this all could have been swept under the rug. Dave then went on to say, “with or without the media we will find Natalee.”
Then Dave made a rather interesting observation that was rather revealing.
Red, I think that this case may be solved through the internet. There are so many people who may know others and have information to evidence. So many may have some type of knowledge that may bring a break to the case.
In many respects I agree with Dave on this one as blogs have not just repeated MSM stories in the Natalee Holloway case, they have actually broke news before the MSM. Scared Monkeys has taken an active role in personally helping a family in need. What ever way it plays out lets just hope that we find Natalee Holloway.
Dave Holloway’s email address is HELPFINDNATALEE@COMCAST.NET to send pertinent information to help solve the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
Update: The concept of double jeopardy in Dutch law. Although there is no double jeopardy there are limitations. ” (…) But unlike the double jeopardy prohibition in the UK and the US, Dutch law allows the prosecution to appeal for a second trial if it can produce new evidence.”
