Beth Twitty discusses the new water searches, the fisherman’s huts, and police wanting to question Natalee’s friends.
During the Beth Twitty interview on Fox Line Up October 22, 2005, she makes some rather interesting comments. Some rather bold ones even for Beth Twitty:
Well Julie I think that Aruba realizes they don’t have any choice but to solve this case. They have to find out what happened to Natalee and where she is. It’s not an option anymore.
There were so many things that were just blatantly orchestrated wrong in the beginning.
There is a reason why there is no evidence. When evidence is never gathered or evidence is gathered and then lost that is when you don’t have any evidence.

Julie: Mai, what’s the very latest and why are they going to question some of Natalee’s friends after this investigation has been going on for so long?
Mai: Julie, the very latest is they are focusing on the water off the coast of the Marriott beach. The same beach where Joran says he left Natalee the night she went missing. It is also located near the fishermen’s huts where of course in the beginning there were a lot of unofficial reports of a bait cage that was taken from one of these fishermen huts when they were broken into. Police say they do not have an official report of that, but they want to exclude it as a piece of evidence in this case. So they have the dive teams concentrating about 5 miles off the coast looking to see if there is in fact a bait cage that might be in the water. They picked 5 miles based on the amount of time that has passed and current patterns. Now police are interested in talking to Natalee’s friends because they say in the beginning of the case there were a lot of blanks that weren’t filled in. They don’t know if this is because investigators were being delicate because of the family’s involvement. But they want to talk to some of these friends and fill in some of these blanks because they think some of the students who were on the trip and actually at C&C that night with Natalee might have some information that they don’t realize could be helpful to the authorities.
Julie: This very latest of this fishermen’s hut and the knife that was taken out of there. Now they want to talk to you again, apparently. What’s going on and why are these developments happening? Every time we revisit this case, it seems something else is being revisited and is the investigation going in the right direction at this point or what?
Beth: Well Julie I think that Aruba realizes they don’t have any choice but to solve this case. They have to find out what happened to Natalee and where she is. It’s not an option anymore. Of course, we are doing some really big searches in the water. We have organized several different groups. As a matter of fact, I was just on the phone yesterday with another dive team. Part of them were flying down today. It’s taking a lot of time away from these men’s families and their jobs. Everybody is doing this last push effort to see if we can’t find out what happened. So I hope this water area is truly warranted for all these searches that will be going on.
