The new arrest in Aruba of a 19 year old Dutch National has set the speculation and theories in to over drive of the possibilities that might result. Of course the fact that this arrest was done on Easter weekend seems to be par for similar events that have occurred in Aruba in the past over long holiday weekends. The attorney for Joran Van der Sloot, Antonio Carlo, maintained his client’s innocence in discussing the recent arrest of the individual with the initials, “G.V.C.”.
Antonio Carlo, attorney for Dutch national Joran van der Sloot, who was arrested last year but then released for lack of evidence, said he hoped the new arrest would shed light on what happened to Holloway, an honors student from Mountain Brook, Ala., who disappeared on May 30. It was the final night of the 18-year-old’s high school graduation trip to this Dutch Caribbean island.
“My client has from the beginning maintained his innocence, and I think the sooner this case is resolved, the better,” Carlo told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from his home, adding that he did not know the name of the suspect.
“We will wait and see what comes of this arrest,” he said.
Dave Holloway, the father of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, had another take on the new set of circumstances in Aruba.
Holloway’s father, Dave Holloway, said Sunday he has been informed of the arrested person’s identity but did not recognize the name.
“We’re hopeful that something will come out of it,” Holloway told CNN.
Dave Holloway said he was still suspicious of van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers.
“I still think that these three original suspects still know more than what they told us,” he said.
Dave Holloway had earlier mentioned that the name of the individual that was arrested in Aruba was not a name of anyone previously mentioned to him.
Natalee Holloway’s father said Sunday he had not previously heard of the person arrested by Aruban police investigating his daughter’s disappearance last year.
Aruban authorities would only say that the person arrested is 19 years old and has the initials “G.V.C.” In Aruba, when an arrest is announced, officials usually release only a suspect’s initials, and not a full name.
Dave Holloway told CNN that he had been told the person’s name.
“We’re hopeful that something will come out of it,” Holloway said. “It’s someone new that’s name has never been mentioned before.”

After nearly 11 months into the investigation of Natalee Holloway, a name is brought to the forefront and a person is arrested who Dave Holloway has never even heard of? The alleged link of the individual arrested to the three suspects hardly gets anyone off the hook as attorney Antonio Carlo implied. If anything it creates even more questions. Many have suspected that the three suspects, Joran Deepak and Satish, could not have pulled this off themselves. Are we beginning to see the spider web unravel?
