Dave Holloway provides some frank and stern words for the investigators or prosecution in Aruba who have been in charge of the Natalee Holloway disappearance. It has been pointed out is the past that Dave Holloway was a patient man; however, that did not mean that he did not expect sincere and serious efforts be made in the investigation of his missing daughter Natalee Holloway. One should never confuse patience with tolerance. Aruba and Aruban officials may just beginning to find this out. During last nights interview with Dan Abrams on The Abrams Report October 2, 2005, Dave Holloway showed a side not often seen.
The result being a cumulative effort with both Dave Holloway and Beth Twitty coming together and jointly signing a letter to Aruban officials. Dave Holloway has always been looked upon by many during this five month investigation as the more calm one and the pillar of reason by not only Americans but Arubans as well. Make no mistake about it though, Dave Holloway is after the same result as Beth Twitty is, finding Natalee. Is it any wonder with recent events in Aruba where there appeared to be cooperation and communication between the ALE, Natalee’s family and the searchers that Dave Holloway would even lose his patience when all that looked good had gone south almost overnight? As Dave Holloway stated.
I was one of the last holdouts. I think Beth had been pushing for this for some time. And I went back to the island, hoping to make one last push to get everybody together, hold some solid communications and move forward with the case. And there at the end I thought we were coming close and starting to gel and to move this forward, and suddenly it just fell apart.
More from the Dave Holloway interview where even a patient man has his limit. Many have said and felt that during this terrible, emotional ordeal of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway that Dave Holloway was the “voice of calm and reason.” By all accounts he has conducted himself in an overly cautious manner giving Aruban officials more than every opportunity to do the right thing. Even ArubaTruth has made favorable comments toward Dave Holloway when he stated he was against a boycott of Aruba. We had said a long time ago that when it comes to Dave Holloway, do not confuse patience with a tolerance of the situation. Being patient does not mean that one does not expect results. Being patient means just the opposite. It means one is willing to take the time to have others get it right.
Aruban officials has now backed itself into a serious corner. Dave, who has given them every benefit of the doubt and has integrity beyond reproach, now seriously doubts the actions of the Aruban investigators. When Dave Holloway doubts the situation so will many people who have respected his approach throughout this nightmare ordeal. For all the cooperation and communication to have dissolved what appeared to be overnight is most frustrating, even more so, to a patient man who gave every opportunity to those in charge to get it right. A patience that looks like it has finally been pushed to its limit.
HOLLOWAY: Yes, it would be. I was one of the ones who held out, hoping that the police would come together and complete their investigation, and it just finally got to the point where “you know we’ve got tunnel vision and a lot of peripheral issues started coming up, and you know why aren’t we focusing back on the three suspects? Why are we talking about issues that don’t even involve the case? And that’s where I started getting frustrated and I felt like you know it’s time, it’s the fourth quarter, and time’s almost up. Why don’t we just start all over and start out with a whole new fresh team?
More from the Abrams Report and a not so pleased Dave Holloway who has even his limits when it comes to patience.
ABRAMS: Hi everyone. First up on the docket tonight, there is a war of words unraveling in Aruba. Natalee Holloway’s divorced parents who up to now have been proceeding separately, sign a letter. Here it is. You see Dave Holloway, Robin Holloway, Beth Twitty, Jug Twitty, all signing this letter in agreement with what is in this six-page document. They are demanding that Aruba’s attorney general pull the team investigating Natalee’s disappearance.
Quote:It has become increasingly difficult to hold our tongues. It is our contention that it is in the best interest of everyone concerned to instigate a fresh start in this case. We respectfully request that Dennis Jacobs, Karin Janssen, and Gerold Dompig be removed from the case.
The letter goes on to say that when Dave Holloway asked the police to begin a search for Natalee two days after she went missing, the detective in charge of the investigation answeredÃ¢â‚¬”quoteÃ¢â‚¬”"no, this happens all the time. Just go on down to Carlos N’ Charlie’s and have a beer. She’ll show up sometime. She probably got drunk or fell in love and ran off with someone for a few days.”
They also had strong words for the deputy chief of police, Gerold Dompig. Quote: “It is apparent that Dompig wants to incite anti-Beth Twitty feelings among the Aruban populace in a situation where he should be doing the exact opposite and appealing to the Aruban people for leads to solve Natalee’s disappearance.”.
This scathing letter comes just a day after we had an exclusive interview with the deputy. He was on the program yesterday, where he had some tough words of his own for the family.
ABRAMS: Look, Dave, you have generally been a sort of calmer voice in connection with this investigation, and yet you did sign this scathing letter about the investigative team. Why?
DAVE HOLLOWAY, NATALEE HOLLOWAY’S FATHER (via phone): Yes we did. I was one of the last holdouts. I think Beth had been pushing for this for some time. And I went back to the island, hoping to make one last push to get everybody together, hold some solid communications and move forward with the case. And there at the end I thought we were coming close and starting to gel and to move this forward, and suddenly it just fell apart.
ABRAMS: But Dave, these are very serious accusations that you all are making in this letter. Let me read from one of them that apparently was regard to you from a detective handling the case.
When you went to the police department to report Natalee missing “quote” Dennis Jacobs responded with the following inappropriate question. How much money do you have?
HOLLOWAY: That’s correct and there were two witnesses there that can confirm that.
ABRAMS: And your understanding was he was effectively saying in order to search for your daughter, that they would have to get paid?
HOLLOWAY: Well I don’t know what his intentions were, Dan, but he made that comment. Whether he was making it in jest, or whatever, I don’t know, but he did make that comment.
