In Vanity Fair; Gerold Dompig blames Beth & Jug Twitty for being the biggest obstacles to finding Natalee Holloway
From the pages of Vanity Fair, ARUBA’S DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF BREAKS HIS SILENCE ON THE NATALEE HOLLOWAY CASE
So does every one want to know who is responsible for this case not being solved according to the chief Aruban investigator, Gerold Dompig? Could it be the people who lied about their alibi and who were the last seen with Natalee Holloway the last time she was ever seen? No
The people to blame according to Gerold Dompig is Beth and Jug Twitty. Incredible. No wonder Gerold Dompig has been no where to be found lately. So the obstacles were not the many different versions of the truth by the suspects while in custody, not the fact that they lied about dropping Natalee off at the Holiday Inn, not the fact that the three primary suspects were never arrested initially but instead two black security guards were instead. Nor was it the obstruction of searching the Van der Sloot property in total.
ARUBA’S DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF BREAKS HIS SILENCE ON THE NATALEE HOLLOWAY CASE. Gerold Dompig, the Aruban deputy police chief in charge of the case of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, discusses the case in detail for the first time, telling Vanity Fair special correspondent Bryan Burrough that the biggest obstacles to finding Holloway have been her mother and stepfather, Beth and Jug Twitty, themselves.
Dompig charges that pressure from the family sidetracked the investigation from the outset, forcing premature arrests and not allowing Aruban authorities enough time to gather evidence. (These revelations appear in the January issue of Vanity Fair, which hits newsstands December 7 in New York and L.A. and December 13 nationally.)
“They didn’t understand the way things are done in our system,” Dompig tells Burrough of the family. “They act like they came from a world where you can just crush people. It was very harmful to our investigation.”
The rule of thumb when spinning a story is not only to trash the family, but trash the victim as well. That’s right, it was Natalee Holloway’s fault.
According to Dompig, Beth Twitty had contact with her daughter while she was in Aruba. Dompig tells Burrough he has taken two statements from journalist Julia Renfro, as well as a worker at the Holiday Inn, and both claim Beth Twitty told them she had gotten a call from Natalee, who said she was in love with a tall, blue-eyed Dutch teenager. “We need to know the truth,” says Dompig. “Joran did not have blue eyes, so who was this boy?” Beth strenuously denies making any such statements, or having talked with Natalee while she was away.
Speaking with Dave Holloway this afternoon, Dave said that the comments regarding the telephone calls and Natalee in love with a blue eyed, Dutch teenager “was untrue and a bold faced lie.”
So the lead investigator is Aruba blames people that vacation in Aruba and drink. This is an amazing statement from someone who is in charge of solving this mystery. So beware tourists who go to Aruba and drink, party and have a good time. You too will be guilty of what happens to you when you disappear.
Dompig tells Burrough that the kids in the travel group “went far, very far, in terms of having a good time.” Dompig mentions wild partying and lots of room switching, noting that the Holiday Inn had told them they were not welcome next year. According to other statements, says Dompig, Natalee drank all day, every day. There was “so much drinking that Natalee didn’t show up for breakfast two mornings.”
It appears the gloves are now off and the story that was once about the disappearance of a high school graduated senior, Natalee Holloway. It is now nothing more than a smear campaign. Blame the victim, blame the family, blame everyone but yourselves Aruba.
Blame the tourists who come to your island and drink. Even if it is to excess. Funny, no one had a problem in Aruba having those bar tabs paid. No one had an issue not cutting any of these teens off that they claimed were partying too much. It is almost incomprehensible to imagine that the Aruba would claim that tourists “went far, very far, in terms of having a good time,” but those responsible for the disappearance of Natalee Holloway did not.
This coming from an island where people wonder why a boycott was called for? Aruba’s answer is to blame the people that came there to vacation? Are you serious? It is shameful that a victim and a victim’s family would be considered more suspects by the ALE and the prosecution that the obvious suspects whom Dompig has even stated on national TV “were guilty”. Doesn’t this pretty much explain the investigation and the problems from the out set. In the eyes of the Aruban officials, the family is somehow guilty and responsible for all of this.
