Think Crimes are all that Different? Compare and Contrast Circumstances … Amazing what a Real Investigation Gets You.


Over time so many crimes that are committed have such similar circumstances that they can fit into certain categories of MO’s. Such is the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. The crimes against Natalee Holloway in Aruba are not all that different from that of the recent murder of Michelle Gardner-Quinn, the UVM senior found murdered last week.

(Hat Tip: Klaasend)

When one compares and contrasts the two suspects and the circumstantial evidence that exits, seem to look rather familiar don’t they? Then comes the breaking news below from the police investigating the death of Michelle Gardner-Quinn. It is really quite interesting how easy an investigation becomes when those charged with the investigation are competent, don’t wait 10 days to search people’s property and want to solve a crime vs. protect tourism. Quite amazing things happen when investigators actually want to get to the truth when, “something bad happens”.

The breaking news in the Michelle Gardner-Quinn murder is that there appears to be a DNA match and a connection of Brian Rooney through blood on his pants.

DNA from a blood sample taken from the pants of the prime suspect in the disappearance of University of Vermont student Michelle Gardner-Quinn has been found to match hers, The Associated Press has learned.

The blood was found on the blue jeans of Brian L. Rooney, 36, giving police at least one piece of physical evidence allegedly linking the man they call their prime suspect to the Oct. 7 disappearance of Gardner-Quinn. (Burlington Free Press)

      Joran had a dream of coming to the US and living
      out a dream. – Current Affair 9/2005

      Guess what you murdering sludgeballs???

      That dream is SHATTERED FOREVER, because of his gangraping
      murderous ways! He drugged, raped and killed somebody
      that would not just fade away.

      She was a young woman of substance. She was not perfect!
      She was not a NUN. …but a young, vibrant, full of life woman that finally slammed the gangraping pig Joran’s


      (Same goes for Diepak and Hash-Hish, and that sweating slimebag of a flunky Judge for a father of Joran Van der Sloot – rhymes with boat.)

      So, maybe… she did get some justice after all! Because
      THE WORLD knows who those pigs are… & it will never
      leave them.

      As 10061906 says they are forever branded
      with the mark of CAIN.

      I’d like to see more
      JUSTICE carrried out for her though!



      Justice 4 Miss Natalee Holloway.

      “…Every time you go on a path, a different path, that path leads back, comes back to THESE THREE BOYS”

      words of Gerold Dompig referring to JORAN and the KALPOES

      Hey, while you’re add it, add a third column on Robert Chambers – the ‘preppy murderer’.

      BTW Carpe Noctem, as Sam Kinnison’s so eloquently stated in the movie ‘Back to School’ “…I like the way you think…!

    4. candygirl on October 19th, 2006 11:06 pm

      Yes,amazing how the trail seem to lead the same way,from different directions.candygirl

      You forgot one: the American Police is also incompetent…


      SM: I bet if you asked Mr Rooney he would not say they were incompetent when investigating Michelle’s murder.

    6. tex on October 20th, 2006 5:06 am

      in part you can thank gw bush, because the state depart didn’t do a damn thing for a missing american unless you were an oil worker.


      SM: No … it had more probably to do with the mad man that lives and rules in Venezuela named Hugo. Please stop the GWB is a oil man, that is a lame argument for say many scenarios.

      Its a little more complex … called national security and listening to Hugo 17 miles off his shore.

      thanks blackbelt.

      Oh Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

      Real big WARM FRIENDLY

      SMILE on Brian’s face.

      He should be a Wal-Mart Greeter.

      ( dripping in sarcasm wrapped with
      a flaky irony
      shell )

      What a scowly puss! No soup for him.

    9. Willie on October 20th, 2006 9:20 am

      Wowie! That chart shows scarey results. JVD has a twin? Now that is scarey! I do agree that criminals have the same characteristics.

      I missed you this week. I moved to another place. It sure took a lot of energy and work but will be worth it in the end!

      Justice for the family of Natalee Holloway! Willie

    10. Miss-Underestimated on October 20th, 2006 9:40 am

      Why did Paulus tell the BOYZ that it is very hard to prove a CRIME if there is no BODY?

      How did Paulus know there was a CRIME AND A BODY? Read Deepak and Satish statements.

      Aruba reconcile, give Natalee back to her family.

      Why did Mr. Dompig not allow Dave Holloway to bring in equipment in the land fill? Why would you have a father look in your garbage dump for his daughter? How come Dave Holloway had to provide his own people to search for Natalee?
      Aruba why did you send Dave Holloway on wild goose chases to find his daughter that Aruba knew and stated she was murdered?

      How many dirty hands in Aruba? Every single one of them, not only dirty but bloody.

    11. on October 20th, 2006 9:56 am

      God bless Michelle’s family and friends. Regardless of the outcome – that they will see justice, it’s a hard thing to bear. I hope that Natalee’s family will see justice served as well.

    12. vicki on October 20th, 2006 10:40 am

      His dreams of ever becoming anything are shot to hell. He is a LOSER and will always be one. Looking at his ugly pimply face makes me want to vomit.
      Natalee has truely gotten justice in as far as bringing lieruba to its knees. I would like Justice served for Beth and Dave and family and friends. I feel like all tourists were slapped in the face bt the Ale, and I for one will never forget.

      Notice how both Natalee and Michelle are spoken about as objects:
      this girl, that girl

    16. JusticeforNatalee on October 20th, 2006 3:58 pm

      Does anyone know more about the dog killing incident?
      Was it an accident or just spun that way?

      I wonder, too, about the “accident” with the plate glate window:
      Joran’s explanation that he “fell” into the other person and the glass.
      Is that just Joran’s spin?

    17. JusticeforNatalee on October 20th, 2006 4:00 pm

      #16 correction: plate glass window

      DAY 508

    21. Patti on October 20th, 2006 5:40 pm

      There are alot of murders, whether they be of the human type or that of canine, that are blamed on others. But, in some cases it’s true.

      If someone tells you to murder a girl that you have just raped and beaten, then they are guilty, too. Afterall,
      blood IS thicker than water and who wouldn’t try to protect his half-witted brother?

      I want to know who the h__ raised these kids. No wonder that woman was burying her head in the sand. And I thought she was merely an acquaintance…!?!?!?!?!

      All of them should be ???????????

    22. Patti on October 20th, 2006 6:16 pm


      Okay, I’ll look at your Aruba case.

    23. Maggie on October 20th, 2006 7:20 pm

      I’m sure this guy was a delicious sporter too. Aren’t they all.

      At least here in Vermont, we don’t blame the victim’s family or the victim.

      #27, carpe, why does the term “braindead” come to mind when i look at these pictures?

    29. super dave on October 24th, 2006 11:11 am

      neuterlander: i see incompetence when i read your posts. also, i forgot ignorance !

    30. dutchhog on October 24th, 2006 5:11 pm

      of course the american policeforce is more competent when it comes to solving murders than the dutch policefarce.the dutch police got confronted with 20(thatsright!)TWENTY murders last year! the american police over 18.000 murders last year!thats somewhere around 50 just TODAY! and they’re ALL somebody’s son,daugther,husband,wife,father or i sincerely hope that your policeforce is more competent than the dutch, YOU GONNA NEED IT!!!so,everybody! lets throw some real and hard EVIDENCE towards the dutch police so they can hang these guys for life,and with evidence i mean something that stands up in court! that’s the same in holland than in the U.S without hard evidence they WALK! conflicting statements,hearsay and blahblah is (just like in the U.S.)not enough to convict!we all got our opinions about these guys,and everybody’s opinion is that there guilty!but you know what dirty harry said about opinions!opinions are like assholes everybody’s got one!NOW GIVE ME SOMETHING I CAN HANG ON THIS GUY!!!(clint eastwoods words not mine)i allways found him as very inspirational,harsh,but inspirational.and believe me when i say that everybody in holland want this crime to be solved to(well except for mabey for youknowwho!)

      [...] Why do this cases begin to sound familiar? Who does this remind one of? I wondered if he walked home or got a ride from a friend in a silver car that night he last saw Michelle Gardner-Quinn? [...]
