Natalee Holloway Investigation: Dompig; “Basic thumb rule says that in the first forty days of your investigation you probably have talked to the Perps.”
There were some rather interesting comments made by Aruban LE, Dompig, in the fact that he feels that they have already spoken to the perpetrators of those responsible for the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. When asked whether he thought they had their man Dompig responded with the following:
Basic thumb rule says that in the first forty days of your investigation you probably have talked to the perps. We feel that we have talked to them.
Even though Dompig claims that the investigators are looking at many leads and going back over others that were never investigated in the beginning.
You have to assume that there was some foul play. We never stopped looking for the live Natalee. Although those efforts were kinda on a back burner.
Dompig and the Aruban LE want to verify the tapes from the Dr. Phil Show for authenticities to Deepak Kalpoe’s claims that “we all had sex with her”. Obviously this contradicts Joran Van der Sloot’s comments during his interview with the National Enquirer where he claims he did not. But then again didn’t Deepak Kalpoe’s mother, Nadira Ramirez, make the following comment, “Come on, we all lie“?
Fox Big Story; 10-8-05 (Hat Tip: SMS)
Reporter: Welcome sir, tell us what new leads the police are pursuing tonight
Dompig: We have been working on two, several tracks you could say. One is re reading all the information that we have. Second is working on the leads we haven’t been able to work on. In that respect, we also received new information and leads and are working on those. My people convinced me with that information that this case is far from dead.
Reporter: Can you share with us some of those leads that appear to have promise?
Dompig: Once these guys were set free, we feel that people who probably know something feel compelled to come forward. These tips and leads continue to come in. Some of these leads are very interesting. We feel that these same three boys remain very interesting to us.
Reporter: Do you think that Natalee Holloway is dead and one or more of these three suspects are involved in it?
Dompig: Well, of course you don’t know, that is what investigating is all about. You have to assume that there was some foul play. We never stopped looking for the live Natalee. Although those efforts were kinda on a back burner.
Reporter: Do you think you have your man in one or all three of them?
Dompig: Yes, let me say this. Basic thumb rule says that in the first forty days of your investigation you probably have talked to the perps. We feel that we have talked to them.
Reporter: Let me ask you about this tape where Deepak Kalpoe allegedly admitted that all three had sex with Natalee. Assuming that the authorities down there get their hands on that tape pretty soon from Dr. Phil and it confirms he made that admission coupled with the statements that NH was coming in and out of consciousness, would that be enough for an arrest on a sex charge?
Dompig: I cannot say that, I cannot comment on that. I can say that we have done everything possible to get our hands on those tapes, the original tape. We really want to know if they are legitimate, and not something that was altered or whatever. We have put in an official request through the prosecutor to the Dr. Phil show The response was that we could get the tapes if the prosecutor participated in a show where she was handed over the tapes on the air. Of course, we don’t want to participate in a show.
