Fox News now reporting: Sources: 4th Person Arrested in Aruba Mystery
Authorities in Aruba arrested a fourth man in connection with the disappearance of missing Alabama honors student Natalee Holloway, sources told FOX News.
The new person detained is a 26-year-old friend of Joran van der Sloot — who was with Holloway the night she disappeared, sources said. Van der Sloot, 17, has been detained but not charged.
Of course we know now that Steve Croes provided police with a false alibi for Joran, Deepak and Satish after the ALE already knew the three primary suspects never dropped Natalee Holloway off at the Holiday Inn.
The question remains as to why Steve Croes would have ever knowing lied to the police to confirm the three suspects phony alibi. What does Steve Croes know and why would anyone place themselves at such risk? What was his reward of doing such an act?
