On the eve of a new Dutch Cold Case Police team taking over the investigation into the disappearance we now learn that Deepak & Satish Kalpoe have a November 1, 2006 hearing to determine whether they will still be suspects. The Kalopoe’s are looking to be released as suspects in the same manner as Paulus Van der Sloot was. So why now? One thing is for certain, Aruba thought its tourism was down now? The release of Deepak and Satish Kalpoe as suspects after reading their statements will all but destroy what is left of Aruba’s tourism. A single digit decline based off of last years poor numbers will be turned into double digits. Keep it up Aruba. Haiti will become more of an island destination if you keep your nonsense up.
David Kock – You know that was the date that was set by the judge because it’s been some time now that we already solicited the judge to instruct the DA either to proceed with the case and set the date for the trial or to dismiss the case. Because these people cannot be held in that situation not knowing what is happening we’re about 17 months later and there are really no new developments in the case.
It is hard to imagine that a judge would dismiss two or the three prime suspects in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway as a new Dutch police team takes over the case. However, this is Aruba and what is black is white and vice-versa.
Dave Holloway – He mentioned something about funny that things happen that’s very coincidental that they are setting dates to get dismissed just when the Dutch are coming in and investigate it quite coincidental. A lot of things have been coincidental in this case by the way.
Megyn Kendall – At this point I got to image you have next to no or no faith in the Aruba courts. What do you expect to happen Dave what do you think this money is on.
Dave Holloway – Well I would hope that they would not allow for them to be freed. But if I was banking on it, based on what’s happened in the past it’s a possibility that they will be released.
