The following is the first statement that Deepak Kalpoe gave to the police as a “witness”. Interesting that in Deepak’s witness statement he states that Joran Van der Sloot told him that Natalee Holloway was drunk. Why would this even be a topic of conversation?
“Joran told me that the girl according to him was drunk.”
Would this be to single her out as the easy mark to separate from the crowd? Why do three guys go to a bar 1/2 hour before closing except to find the easiest mark. Below is an accounting of the ever changing story as to whether Joran considered Natalee Holloway drunk.

How many times has Joran van der Sloot changes his answers as to if Natalee Holloway was drunk or not? Could Natalee Holloway ever have been capable of making a proper decision? According to Deepak’s statement Joran Van der Sloot thought Natalee was drunk prior to any 151 rum shot that Joran later states he bought her.
Deepak’s 5–31–05 Witness statement: “Joran told me that the girl according to him was drunk.”
Reporter: If you were asked to describe Natalee Holloway, what kind of a girl is she ?
Joran van der Sloot: Well eh.. I haven’t known her for very long. I met her the same day, she asked me to go out with her , and I did, when I arrived she had been drinking, she was a little drunk, but she wasn’t someone that I would like to have a relation with, she wasn’t really nice or supersweet, let me put it that way.
Interviewer: When you say you got drinks for Natalee, were you trying to get Natalee drunk?
Joran van der Sloot: No, not at all. I wasn’t planning to get her drunk at all.
Interviewer: Did you see her as a drunk and vulnerable Natalee that you could get over on?
Joran van der Sloot: No, I saw her as someone that was trying to have fun. She had a lot of drinks.
Interviewer: Are you drunk?
Joran van der Sloot: No.
Reporter: What did she tell you? That you can remember.
Joran van der Sloot: She told me a lot of things. One thing she told me was that her mother was Hitler’s sister’s daughter. I don’t know what she was talking, a lot of strange things. She told me she wanted to go to the light house and see sharks, which we never went to. But, I don’t know, she talked a lot of things. Obviously, she was drunk. I had stuff to drink too. Now, I don’t respect that the Aruban authority tried to pin that it was a rape case. She wanted to go with me. I wanted to go with her. It was totally consensual. I had something to drink. She had something to drink. And, I just don’t think it is fair that people…that they even held me three months, because, the fact is, that in the United States they would not even… they never would’ve even been allowed to arrest me. The Dutch system works in the way that, if…you can be arrested on suspicion. (Motorcycle noise) In the United States, you need hard evidence. There is not one evidence in this case that shows something bad happened. I have never touched a girl in an aggressive way in my life. There is not one girl that went forward and said otherwise. And, I only have good declarations in my name, so.
Interviewer: Is there a way to describe her, I mean, and whether she seemed or appeared to be, you know, drinking? Did she seem to be drunk?
Joran van der Sloot: Oh… she’d been drinking, but she wasn’t drunk. I mean, she knew what she was doing. And you know, all the people there were drinking, as well. I mean, that’s just… that’s normal when you go out and have a drink with your friends.
