Dompig Says No To Texas EquuSearch’s Plan to Search Dunes

According to sources Texas EquuSearch has been trying to get permission to searchSand dunes the area of the sand dunes prior to any costly deep water search. Tim Miller and Texas EquuSearch a long with Tim Whittaker have already been given Aruba’s blessing to conduct a search of the water. However, one would assume that searches would be done of the sand dunes first where there was supposed information from a credible witness.

A search of the water is much more costly and common sense would say that since there was a lead to search the dunes, they should be done first. Originally the FBI was going to help search them with radar equipment and cadaver dogs. However, that ended when Aruba would not divulged where the tip came from.

According to sources, Tim Miller has offered to search the dunes bringing in their own highly sophisticated ground penetration units at no cost to the Aruban people or government. Aruba has cited in the past that much of its budget has gone toward the Natalee Holloway investigation.

“The Arubans assured us the case is going forward with 14 investigators presently assigned. They also advised us that 40 percent of their annual law enforcement budget has been spent on this case.

There was a supposed credible witness with a tip to search the sand dunes, TES is offering to get the job done immediately and either find Natalee or rule out the area and do the search of the water if still necessary. All at no cost to Aruba. Sources say, their offer denied.

Why? With the Aruban PR nightmare that is the Natalee Holloway investigation, who turns down free help and the appearance of the US and Aruba working together for a common goal? Especially when there is a credible lead.

Greta Van Susteren gets an unedited interview with Joran Van Der Sloot. Joran is becoming the gift that keeps on giving. Greta

We just got back from a very quick trip to Aruba. We got word late last week (Friday?) that Joran van der Sloot would sit down for an interview with us in Aruba.

The one agreement: that we wouldn’t edit it.

Joran also did not want to do the interview in the United States, so we agreed on Aruba

Greta doing an interview with Joran like a deposition, this might be interesting. Greta, who has been at this case from the outset questioning Joran, Greta being a lawyer to boot. This is a must see. What defies logic is the fact that Joran Van der Sloot when doing the ABC interview did not listen to his parents advice. They asked Joran not to do the interview and he did not listen. With respect to the Greta interview, “Joran said he did not want his parents in the room.” Instead he wanted his teacher who made a most peculiar comment and request of Greta. Strange indeed.
