Natalee Holloway case stressfully continues
Dutch experts conclude ‘Dr. Phil’ tape ‘doctored’
The following are some excerpts of Dompig’s comments. Some how we went from altered to “doctored”.
The most recent update includes forensic investigators in Holland having found that someone altered a taped interview in which a Surinamese man allegedly claimed to have had sex with a U.S. teen who disappeared while visiting Aruba, the island’s police chief said Wednesday.
“The tapes played on U.S. television appear to have been altered to suggest Deepak admitted to a sexual act, our forensic investigators tell us, the original tape did not say that,” Gerald Dompig, the chief of police for this Dutch Caribbean island, said in a statement.
“I have reviewed the findings of the Forensic Institute in Holland … those results state that the tapes were not authentic in regard to statement made by Deepak Kalpoe,” Dompig said.
This is one of the more eye opening statements,
“We have asked the FBI to review the same tapes to corroborate the conclusion reached by our Dutch forensic investigators,” the statement said.
Its too bad that were not asked to cooperate in the actual investigation more often and from the beginning.
From Diario, November 11, 2005; segun comunicado di ATIA, DR. PHIL A YEGA DI WORDO ACUSA PA ABUSO SEXUAL
Looks like the answer is to smear those who favor a boycott. This article may be a bit inappropriate and over the top. I have never been a big fan of the Dr. Phil Show, but seems like there is another side to the story.
According to ATIA release
Dr. Phil was accused of sexual abuse
Dr. Phillip C. McGraw, better known as Dr. Phil, also followed the petition of the Governor and asked for a boycott of Aruba.
His show only portrayed one side of the story of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, without trying to find out the correct facts.
The former therapist stopped giving therapy in 1989, after the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists publicly pulled his attention.
This was due to the fact that he was under accusations of sexual abuse.

Going after someone personally similar to the articles about Joe Mammana hardly seem the correct avenue. The tape issue is one thing, embellishing ones past is something completely different.
