Natalee Holloway Disappearance: Geoffrey van Cromvoirt (GVC) Also Held on Suspicion of Dealing Illegal Drugs
In an investigation and prosecution that has already had one too many twists and turns. Prosecutors in Aruba state that Geoffrey van Cromvoirt is also being held in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, is also suspected of dealing drugs.
Today’s court appearance is the first for the Dutch man since his arrest as a suspect in the Alabama teen’s case.
A statement from prosecutors says he’s “suspected of criminal offenses that may be related to the disappearance” of Holloway, and also “of offenses related to dealing in illegal narcotics.”
As to whether the three primary suspects in Natalee’s disappearance know the 19 year old Geoffrey van Cromvoirt.
Van der Sloot’s father told The Associated Press that his son has never met the 19-year-old detainee.
“Joran did not know him at all,” said Paulus van der Sloot, a former island justice official who also was detained and later released on suspicion of involvement in Holloway’s disappearance.
Ronny Wix, a lawyer who represents the Kalpoe brothers, said he was not yet sure whether his clients know the detainee but he believes they will eventually be cleared of any involvement.
