      great job, klaasend, as usual. it’s such a shame this tragedy had to happen. it’s such a shame that the travesty of justice has to continue.

    2. Janet on March 3rd, 2007 8:53 pm

      Klaas, you have done a wonderful job of putting all these presentations together.
      The “powers that be” within the Aruban investigation know the truth regarding the events encompassing that fateful morning. Nevertheless, justice for a missing American citizen has yet to prevail. Why?

      Great job Klaas.

      Dompig needs to come clean and tell on them all. Bunch of murdering liars.

      That Dompig wiener always looks like he just

      got done sniffing his own dirty sweat socks to me!

      Hey Dompig, up your bazoot with a full cut BOOT,
      ya big peanut head shaped jackass.

      Give Joran and Paulus a big kissie for me. (wretch)

      Natalee Ann deserved to come home either dead
      and many more just like you, sat there with
      your thumbs in your thumb holders, and did
      nothing at all. You can have your murdering
      raping relatives, the Kalpoes,
      & Joran and Paulus
      Van der Slotz.

      It’s a match made in Heaven actually!

      You are cut from the same cloth.

      water always
      seeks its level,

      and substitute it

      of horse $hit. -J4N

      Good job Klaasend as usual.
      I had faith in Dompig, but he just turned into the rest of them.
      He lost his job over all of this. Boo Hoo No tears for Gerry ! !
      He is now doing a security job.

      Good Job, Klaas!

      Tunnel-Vision doesn’t come near to describe the
      blindness that this man demonstrated.

      No… I take that back.

      Blindness is not inclusive to the act of
      volunarily closing ones eyes.


      No more Wampum for you!

      Superb Klaas.

      First I noticed the picture of the lepruchan in the back of the photo where all the brains were sitting on a meeting. Such an honorable man. Nah I don’t think so. I look at all of these supposedly professional involved and say you all look like a joke.
      Your legacy will be this case, you name is now known because of Natalee Holloway, and you all are a total joke, you are responsible for the demise of your island.
      How can you Mr. Dompig sleep at nite, is it only to to save you sons hide?

      What a joke you all are. You have defamed yourselves beyond belief. Perfumed pigs eventually start to stink.

      Hell yes, we all know their guilty and half of Aruba for covering up. What a sick and degenerate island. Looks like they want to continue on with lies and sick perversions.

      Every one of these videos is another log for the fire under the cauldron called Aruba, I cant wait for the main ingredient: Urin.
      More videos please !!!


      SM:   You do know we already did a Joran lies video don’t you?   (klaasend)

    14. Richard on March 4th, 2007 5:43 am

      This probably is very unrealistic … but is it possible, with a video, to give a transcript of what is being said?

      My computer handles video really slowly, and sometimes the accents and intonations don’t come through. So it would be good to have a text to compare with what is being shown.

      Needless to say, I have no idea of how much work this probably would entail.

      Is Dompig still in Aruba, or has he gone to the Netherlands yet? If the latter, too bad we can’t track him down and try to get the “truth”: if he would dare talk, that is.

      Hope the upgrade is doing well.

    15. Leslie on March 4th, 2007 7:48 am

      Good Sunday morning. Dompig isn’t the bad guy here. That award goes to Rudy Croes. I am still curious about the interaction between Paul Sloot and Rudy a week before Natalee went missing and a few days before Anita was sent away to Holland. Why was Paul asking Rudy for a job if Paul was gainfully employed as a replacement judge and a member of the office of the prosecutor general? Also, didn’t Paul teach law at the University of Aruba? The timing is suspicious.

    18. Janet on March 4th, 2007 10:27 am

      When I consider Dompig’s incriminating words in regards to Joran, Deepak, Deepak and Paulus which were quoted on the presentation … I tend to agree with the following words of Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway.
      On the Record w/ Greta
      April 11, 2006
      VAN SUSTEREN: So you have faith in her (Amalin Flanegin)?
      HOLLOWAY: Well, somewhat. I think she really wants to solve the case.
      VAN SUSTEREN: How about Deputy Chief Dompig?
      HOLLOWAY: Dompig, I think he’s on the fence. I think he really does but he always mentioned higher-ups. The higher-ups had his hands tied.

    19. Waterboy (Jerry) on March 4th, 2007 11:00 am

      There are a lot of things that could have happened to Natalee, but what is the most likely?

      First, she was taken against her will (was she drugged? -probable). If not against her will at first, than soon after she got in the car when she wanted out, but was not allowed to do so. The fake taxi was the way they did it. The K2s were careful not to meet Natalee before that night.

      Second, she was rapped (there is simply no other motive-and this goes hand and hand with revenge). She struck back, and was savagely, brutally, and maliciously murdered by a young psychopath who could in no way control the inner rage that his sick, nauseous, diseased mind was generating. She was so disfigured and injured so severely that the accident angle would never have been believed.

      Third, she was buried or put in a tomb and moved and reburied, maybe 5 times.

      Fourth, she was taken to the Wever’s funeral home and cremated.
      We can all fill in the list of suspects, there are definitely 4, possible 7 to 10 who witnessed the actually murder, and participated in crimes against Natalee.

      Will anyone ever pay for his or her crimes against Natalee? I’m beginning to think only in hell. Have others been hurt by members of this same pack of sickly vampires since Natalee was killed? You can bet on it.

      To all, Shango = Robert Benson, and yes the vampires got him too.

      P.S. To all the Art Woods and Jamie Skeeters out there, I bought a Surefire U2 Ultra. Surefire has a new model out (don’t buy), and they had the U2 marked down. The new model has blue diodes for following a fresh blood trail, but the main light is not as bright, and not adjustable like the U2. If you need the blue diodes, spend 30 dollars with Cabela’s for a blue diode light and buy the U2 too. I had to bribe my wife into letting me buy it, but even at twice the price, it is worth it.

      Thank you Klaas, and thank you for all of your hard work..It makes me so sick to think that anyone would bury someone and then go back and rebury them…Its all so awful. I dont know how Beth or Dave and Robin can even bare it. MY GOD….isnt there one DECENT HUMAN BEING on that island that would just give Natalee back to her family..

    22. vicki on March 4th, 2007 11:49 am

      I guess I can answer my own question. No there isn’t one DECENT HUMAN BEING on that island. I am starting to think like waterboy. The guilty ones will only pay in hell.

    23. KrisG on March 4th, 2007 12:11 pm

      Thank you to Klaasend and Scared Monkeys for keeping this story alive. There is no accounting for how people think. When I was posting a “Boycott Aruba-Find Natalee Holloway” sticker a woman approached and asked why I want to hurt Aruba. She asked why I’m not doing something positive for the US instead. After I stood there speechless for a few seconds I responded that I am doing something for Americans, specifically for an American girl and her family and all other unsuspecting travellers to Aruba. I feel a boycott is necessary to help coerce the Aruban government into taking serious action on Natalee’s case.

      All I can say is I’m doing the little that I can to boycott Aruba. A friend of my daughter called a few months ago to ask me about Aruba since she knew I was there. She wanted to go there with her husband and 4 year old son. I told her about the boycott and Natalee Holloway and she responded by saying “Don’t worry about us, we’re not going to go out at night.” I said that’s not the point. What if your little boy got into some kind of trouble–say was hit by a car–and the Aruban government did nothing to help you find out who did it. You found out on your own that it was a Dutch elite on the island and noone would be held responsible for your son’s injuries (or death). How would you feel then? At least I kept those 3 people off the island.

      The first time I heard a report on Natalee Holloway the talking heads said there is no way the Aruban government would take action against one of their own. I can imagine this behaviour years ago when the world was a much larger place but it is just hard to believe that in this age a travesty like this could still occur.

      Justice for Natalee Holloway and her family!

    24. Richard on March 4th, 2007 12:42 pm

      For what it’s worth, here’s a link to the Boston Globe Travel Show plans.

      Click on Exhibitor Information, and then Floor Layout.

      Do a search for Aruba, or Aruba Tourism Authority.

      Their booth is, I believe, #160 … one of the biggest, and right near the main entrance.

      Boston and New England are key markets for them, and they clearly are putting emphasis on this show.

      Come join the protest! Stand up for Natalee!

    25. Max on March 4th, 2007 12:44 pm

      I don’t know about you guys but I’m still going to Aruba this summer, Aruba is great and my family and I love it there.

    26. San on March 4th, 2007 12:59 pm

      #25 Max. Don’t leave your family for one second because they might disappear especially if you have a teenage daughter.

    27. San on March 4th, 2007 1:11 pm

      As far as I’m concerned Aruba is unsafe in more ways than one.

      1. Police are corrupt and look for their palms to be greased before they even help you.
      2. Hospitals are not equipped. God forbid something happens and you are taken to one of their hospitals consider yourself dead or either leaving with an entirely different problem then you first went there.
      3. If you have trouble on a beach in the water you can be sure you will be brought back to shore dead because they seem not to administer CPR and they stand around looking at your dead body with their hands on their hips and scratching their heads saying what do we do now.
      4. The Kidnappers/Rapists/Murderers are still running around the island targeting American tourists.

      One thing I will say is that if you happen to commit a murder and you need a lawyer to make the body disappear try the law firm of Sloot & Carlo they come highly recommended.

      22. Vicki
      Vicki, you and I are usually on the same page. However, I uphold Jug and Beth Twitty as well as Dave Holloway in their contention that Jossy Mansur is the one “decent human being on that Island” who supports Natalee’s family in their ongoing quest for answers.
      Jug Twitty
      Comment by JUG TWITTY | December 5, 2006, 10:57 am
      Beth Twitty
      TWITTY: Well, you know, I’ll be forever grateful for Jossy Mansur, who is there. And he has been so instrumental. And he’s just a hero to all of us. And, you know, he’s my only hope on the island. And we’ll be forever grateful to him.
      Dave Holloway
      PRETZER: Jossy Mansur has been the target of a lot of the negatives out there. Sadly in a case like this where the you, the family, are only looking for answers, and a way to bring your daughter home–there are an element of people who will do what they can to try and spin it in a negative way… I am curious your thoughts on Jossy Mansur?
      HOLLOWAY: Jossy has been very helpful to try to find the truth, the fact he lives in Aruba and publishes a newspaper, they’re attacking him because he’s looking for– fighting for– the truth. That’s what a good journalist does–He’s going to go after the people, regardless, and try to find the truth.

    29. vicki on March 4th, 2007 3:09 pm

      Klaas, Red or Tom, I didnt post #22. Its that troll again… and so is freakin max. I wish they would stop hiding behind us decent ppl.

    31. Richard on March 4th, 2007 4:08 pm

      Thanks for pointing that out, Vicki. Looks like the trolls paid you a compliment, if imitation is the sincerest form, etc., or whatever the quotation says.

    32. sirensong on March 4th, 2007 5:01 pm

      So why did Dompig ultimately turn and blame Natalee for her own demise (remember the last interview he gave and said she was on drugs?) Who threatened him for telling the truth about the others? He actually had to go on TV and say the opposite of what he had been saying, knowing he would then get fired. Had to have been someone high up.

    33. Waterboy (Jerry) on March 4th, 2007 5:40 pm

      To all,

      There are more layers to this case than a large purple onion. Each layer will bring tears to your eyes, and in each layer some new character lurks.
      There is a layer of kidnapping, a layer of rape, a layer of violence, a layer of murder, deceit, adultery, greed, drug dealing and use, blackmail, and cover-up.

      Problem is, when all the layers are peeled off we only have 4 individuals left at the onion’s core.

      My advice to Aruba is as follows: “Get a big black cast iron laundry tub, fill it with water and the 4 perps, build a big fire and get on with the pig boil!”

      S.M. I would love to see a cartoon of that if you can come up with something.

      March 22, 2006
      As far as Beth Twitty is concerned, there has always been a simple solution to solving this case: Just ask the people last seen with Natalee – Joran van der Sloot and Satish and Deepak Kalpoe.

    35. Richard on March 4th, 2007 6:51 pm

      Janet (#18) … In re Amalin Flanegan, do you remember that she resigned her position following the inaction by the Aruban government? And that in later interviews, she said she thought she was being followed, and her cell phone was tapped? It would be nice to know what she’s doing today, and if she’s still following the case. Perhaps she is.

      Waterboy (Jerry) (#33) … Given all these layers, do you not think that there may be more involved at the central core than these three punks and a wannabe judge? My view is: these four are the ones who are VISIBLE. I don’t think they would get the protection they evidently have if they were the only ones … they’d be brushed aside as pond scum.

      The assistant prosecutor, Amalin Flanegin, shared with Dave Holloway concerning her complete frustration in regards to the actions/inactions of those within the Natalee Holloway investigation.
      Dave Holloway
      On the Record /w Greta
      November 11, 2005
      HOLLOWAY: Well, yes. I have spoken with one of the assistant prosecutors and that’s one of the reasons she resigned. It was because the police would not follow-up on her suggestions as well. She became so frustrated that she had to call it quits. You have dissentions within the prosecutor’s office. You have police officers who for some reason or other don’t trust each other.
      … We’ve heard that over and over and over again from various different sources. You have to wonder, who can you trust?

    38. Patti on March 4th, 2007 7:51 pm

      #19 Waterboy (Jerry) I always thought that Benson was Shango, too. And no, he didn’t stuff himself in a bin. I have wondered what happened to his wife. She should have come back to the US.

      #21 vicki All cowards and/or involved in Natalee’s demise. I can’t imagine that there wouldn’t be one person who would jump ship(island) and tell all. That’s what I would do.

      Dutch Legal Experts Criticize Natalee Holloway Probe

      By Marilyn Bardsley

      April 11, 2006

      ARUBA (Crime Library) – For a missing person and probable murder case that is almost a year old, it seems like there is news almost on a daily basis. Recently, several Dutch legal experts were openly critical of the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway conducted by Aruba’s Deputy Chief of Police Gerold Dompig. Dompig was removed from the case last week. Adolpho Richardson replaced him as the leader of the investigation.

      Professor of criminal law Menno Dolman told the Dutch GDP news agency that he could not comprehend why there was no immediate search for Natalee after her disappearance. In a translated summary of various Dutch papers that appeared on the missing persons blog Scared Monkeys, another expert, law psychologist Peter van Koppen told reporters that it was “very peculiar that it was only after Dompig got an anonymous tip about a possible location of Natalee’s body that police began to search for her. “Usually, the area gets cordoned off immediately, in order to dig and obtain samples. (Remember the big tip that came first of January or around there that Natalee was buried near the lighthouse and they didn’t search the place until March)

      On 10-26 DOMPIG told “FoxNews that he believes NATALEE’s body is “either in a cage, or put weights on it, or something like that. If that is the case, we should be able to find something.” (Yet Dompig wouldn’t make the call to get the equipment Texas Equisearch needed when they were already there to do the water search and Arlene came on tv and said Dompig never did say Natalee was in a cage. She was trying to make it seem like Tim Miller was lying about Dompig saying that. )

      On 6-5 DOMPIG said, “I want everybody to hold their breaths for the next 24 hours. There will be developments after this weekend.”
      (Good thing we didn’t listen or we would’ve passed out long ago)

      On October 9 “FoxNews” asked DOMPIG “And the police only searched his apartment, deputy chief?,” DOMPIG replied, “That is correct. The fact is that we as a law enforcement agency always try to get the maximum. Meaning that we want to search as much places as possible. We were not granted by the judge a search warrant for the complete house, we only received the warrant for the apartment.” When DOMPIG was then asked “But what about after Paul van der Sloot was arrested, couldn’t you get a warrant to search the house then?,” DOMPIG replied, “It was also denied, we were a bit disappointed with that.

      (According to Anita, they searched the houses and place twice
      and according to the police they only searched Joran’s house and that
      was more than a week after Natalee went missing)

      Awesome Job, Klass, as always..!

    41. Richard on March 4th, 2007 8:39 pm

      Janet (#37) … Exactly. This theme of the police not trusting each other seems to run through the whole investigation.

      What does this imply, do you think? That suddenly, on May 30, 2005, the Jekyll-and-Hyde nature of the Aruban police went from one extreme to the other? That suddenly the island, or some powerful parts of it, suddenly changed?

      Nobody would think that. Clearly something was going on before Natalee, or else there were intimations that something involving important people, or something that had to be kept secret, happened. And nobody knew quite who was involved and who would betray whom.

      This much seems likely to me. The only “mystery” is what it would be. And as everyone is tired of hearing, I think I know.

      Join us in Boston. Stand up for Natalee!

    42. Richard on March 4th, 2007 8:42 pm

      P.S. … Just to repeat myself, we in Boston won’t be pushing any particular idea, other than that Natalee was the victim of a crime and that depriving Aruba of your money is the most moral thing to do and the best way to contribute toward getting answers.

      Might save a life, too, including yours … if you don’t go.

      Comment by Richard | March 4, 2007, 6:51 pm


      You’re right. Definitely, there are more. I don’t know how involved the others are, other than some were there, some participated in some way, but I think we have one, one, murderer; and I’ll bet everyone knows who that is.

      I think in the U.S. if the bottom of this could ever be reached, that at least 4 would be tried on first-degree murder. The reason for this is I believe Natalee was killed in the commission of other crimes, so under most state laws in the U.S., that would make all present guilty of capital murder, possible even if Natalee’s death was an accident (which I don’t believe).

      There is a cover up big time. A would be judge and a prosecutor would have a lot of information on a lot of people (or their families i.e. Sons, fathers, etc.) stored away for a rainy day. There could be those in the cover-up that have been involved in some horrible crimes that Paulus would know about. He may have tapes etc.

    45. Waterboy (Jerry) on March 4th, 2007 9:38 pm

      Case in point,

      Someone got to Gerald Dompig didn’t they? He went from “guilty as hell,”to “I believe Natalee’s death was drug and alcohol induced.”

      What was his weak link? I don’t believe it was Gerald. It had to be someone close (perhaps his son). Does he have any other children?

      #23 (and all)

      I heard that a Birmingham (NH’s home)firm has offices in Aruba. I thought the sentiment was to boycott Aruba and to put pressure on companies/organizations that give away trips to Aruba. I’ve heard of pressure being placed on “Deal or No Deal”, Weight Watchers, Curves, et al.

      It is true?

      Did I hear someone way food?!?!?!??!

      Oh, My Gosh! Nothings better than a nice hot pot of:

      Kalpoes Sloot Soup!!!!!

      Wow… that was fast.

      You ask… Monkeys deliver

      Nice post, San!

      I agree with you. But, then again, we also have to ponder on the possibility that Joran may just be a scape goat, along with the other two boys for something that was much, much worse than those three punks could have conjured up… something much more sinister.

      Can you, please, tell me what happened? You said that the vampires got him. I think I know what that means. Was he killed in the same way as the others? Was he tortured, too?

      Maddy’s Son #48:

      Yes, that’s true. We have been writing letters and emails to companies that promote Aruba asking them to support the Holloway-Twitty families in the boycott of Aruba.

      Richard is the one that has really taken the lead in the letter writing campaign. If you have any concerns, you can leave a post for him as he checks the boards periodically.



      Also, I want to say that Richard does a very fine job of keeping us abreast with current events that, many times, runs parallel with the news that we post here at Scared Monkeys.

      We appreciate him…. a BUNCH!!!!

      Good Night…

      waterboy,,,do you know for a fact benson was shango.if so how do you know.

    53. Richard on March 5th, 2007 6:21 am

      Thanks, Patti.

      Maddy’s son (#48), you’re right on Curves. A friend of mine found their ad in Ladies Home Journal … the reward for losing a certain amount of weight in a competition was a trip to Aruba.

      Some of us blitzed them with letters, and soon after the CEO sent out a message cancelling the ad campaign, which he had not authorized, and saying he saw no need for any ties between Aruba and Curves “at the present time,” or something like that.

      Weight Watchers was more circumspect; they just said they would review the FUTURE use of Aruba as a tour destination.

      I don’t know which Birmingham, AL, company has offices in Aruba, but wouldn’t be surprised. If you find out, please let us know.

      I’m putting this here not because it’s relevant in any way, but because it shows that … well, to put it bluntly, some kind of identifiable remains can endure for a long time.

      It’s from a local paper in the small Connecticut town where I grew up. How someone vanishes for 12 years without being reported missing mystifies me, but evidently it happened.

      A Body, But No Missing Person Report

      In 1997, James R. Darrow confessed to killing a man, John Avery, who disappeared 12 years earlier but had never been reported missing. Darrow led police to Avery’s remains, which he had disposed in a swampy area called Peck Hollow in Franklin.

      Avery, a farm worker, was engaged to marry Darrow’s sister and was living with her family when he vanished in 1985. Police were questioning Darrow about another topic when he confessed to killing Avery. He said he caught Avery stealing items from the home and beat him to death.

      Darrow is serving a 40-year sentence for murder.

      Waterboy/Jerry (43) … We agree that there is a cover-up to some extent, one that (in my view, anyway) probably does not involve everyone in the Aruban government and law enforcement, but certain key people.

      I also think that fear, potential intimidation, a sense that nobody knows who is corrupt, and perhaps the threat (if not the actual deed, as perhaps in the bouncer found murdered in the cave) of “keep your mouth shut or else” are all helping to suppress those people who aren’t part of the plot.

      We also know that pressure from Aruba’s business community is what impelled the government to seek Dutch “assistance” in the case. I’m pretty sure that Aruba isn’t making even token efforts at this point to do anything. We do know that Texas Equusearch plans to go back to Aruba in April (that was announced recently; whether it comes to pass is another issue); we’ll see what help they get, if any.

      So here’s my question once again: WHAT IS THE MOTIVE FOR ALL THIS? Why should these three punk kids, maybe with some or all of the “Pimps” thrown in, and maybe (just for the sake of the argument) with PvdS thrown in as well, merit all this?

      Clearly it is in Aruba’s interest (at least its economic interest, at least as we see it) to have this crime solved.

      Seems to me that something bigger is at work than the suspects. And it seems to me that whatever it is, it has the potential to blow the Aruban tourist economy out of the water for some time to come.

      There are only two things that I can think of.

      One is narcotics.

      The other is human trafficking.

      And usually, they work together.

    56. G & M Lamando on March 5th, 2007 12:50 pm

      This capsuled video with the music and quotes from Dompig literally brought the tears to my eyes.

      Very nicely done….problem now is—–so much time has gone by with all the corruption on Aruban Law Enforcement, cover-ups, etc…. aren’t we out of time? COLD CASE now even though we’ve known all along it was those 3 boys and the elder VDS who covered it up. Pretty soon also, the time will expire that the 3 boys are officially “taken off” of the suspect list. They have lived freely for almost 2 years now and it’s not fair that the family of Natalee Holloway cannot be allowed the dignity of their convictions….Justice or to have once and for all any closure with this whole ordeal. Beth and Twitty’s second marriage even suffered a divorce after being in the media so much and the severe emotional trauma losing your daughter …what it does to a Mother, Father, StepFather , Brother Family, Friends! IT IS JUST NOT RIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Such a pity, & extremely painful to see all this but thanks again to ScaredMonkeys for keeping it out there.

      Comment by ben | March 5, 2007, 5:56 amWaterboy:

      I’m sorry. I have not a drop of assurance that Benson was Shango.

      When 1906 started speculating that Benson was Shango, I went along with it.

      When the Arabians started saying that Benson in no way had the intellectual capacity to be Shango, I said why? Their reply “he was a motorcycle repairman.”

      My reply, “bologna to that angle, I’ve knew kids in high school who couldn’t pass geometry, but they could short block a GTO on a Saturday. You tell me what takes more intelligence.”

      Benson was a Harley Davidson repairman. Those Harley guys are almost a religion unto themselves.

      When there is a hit on someone, they don’t always just shoot them in the head, and put the gun in the dead man’s hand.

      Sometimes it just goes like this: “Hey, try this it’s really good.” It’s good all right. It’s pure uncut cocaine. B.P goes to 240/180. Heart accelerates to 250 beats/min, and somewhere an artery burst. They might as well have shot you in the head, because you’re just as dead, problem is there is no smoking gun, and no blood trail to follow.


    60. Lara (from Curacao) on September 13th, 2007 7:01 pm

      First of all I would like to say that I do not know what happened the night Natalee disappeared so I am not able to judge anyone. Sadly, the only person who really knows what happened that night and how come to this day she never returned home is no one other than Natalee Holloway herself.

      Secondly, I see lots of comments of people supporting the boycot against Aruba. You are saying that the Aruban/Dutch government did nothing to even try to find this girl. This is not true.

      Two very important examples of what the government did for Natalee (NH):

      1: Give every (government) employee time off to help search for NH.
      2: The Dutch government sent special planes with highly sophisticated equipment to search foor NH.

      And then I ask myself, why is the focus only on the brothers and Joran? How come all of NH’s classmated just went home like nothing happened? I suppose that on a class trip as such you would share a room with someone. If this was the case, how come her roommate didn’t think it’s strange she spent that night in Aruba alone? Who knows the answers to these questions.

      I certainly think some things did not quite go as they should have. Who’s fault is that? Aruba? FBI? Dutch Government? Natalee’s parents? Joran? Natalee herself? Perhaps a combination of all of the previous mentioned.

      What hurts is that people actually think that Aruba (or any other of the other Dutch Caribbean Islands) is run by a bunch of morons in suits. Yes, not all things in Aruba run smoothly. But tell me, do they in AMerica? Is the US perfect? I don’t think so. Both countries have their good sides but unfortunately also their ugly sides. I’m just saying that it is not fair to boycot Aruba and certainly not help crazy stories into the world that have not been checked.

      Believe me, if there is someone besides me who would like to see this mystery solved, it would be the people of Aruba.
      SM: 4000 people were given the day off to search and less than 700 turned out to search. The other 3300 were at CnC. (klaasend)

    61. Lara (from Curacao) on September 13th, 2007 7:08 pm

      BY THE WAY: Did you know that about a month or two ago a full page article came out in the Amigoe (newspaper) in which prominent figures in this case show a different side of this story? Maybe you should contact the people at Amigoe and get a hold of this article and put up a translation on this page. This article created quite a stir.
      SM: :) Yes, we are well aware of the garbage that Julia Renfro and Gerold Dompig spewed in the article that was in Amigoe. Actually, I imagine the backlash from that article did more harm to Aruba than good.

      FYI – you say you are from Curacao but are you currently in the Netherlands? ;)

    62. Lara (from Curacao) on September 29th, 2007 4:05 am

      Yes, I am in the Netherlands, just like thousands of other people from the ABC- islands…. How do you know that and what’s the point?
      How come you don’t comment on the fact that if Natalee was on a trip with all of her classmates and not to mention, with chaperones, why aren’t any of them suspects and how come we don’t hear anything from for example her roommate? Again, I am just trying to see things from ALL points of view….
      SM: Why don’t you ask ALE, KLPD or the FBI that question. (klaasend)

    63. James on December 19th, 2007 1:45 pm

      Natalee Holloway is gone. If the 3 boys are not guilty of knowing something or actually being involved then why were there no concrete leads to anyone else? There was evidence of PVDS having new mattresses placed in his home in the days following NH’s disappearance. Why would he state “no body no case”? Why did Kalpoe clean out and wash car in the middle of the night? Did any of these boys take Polygraph? I rather doubt that JVDS would leave a tourist on the beach. I doubt doubly seriously that NH would have said “leave me here in a strange land” on the beach. It is my solemn prayer that Texas Equisearch finds a crab trap with NH’s skeletal remains. At least we’ll then have closure. And then lastly………whomever is guilty will have to talk to GOD when their life is done, non-belief or belief , is does not matter, we’ll all get to meet GOD/JESUS @ death.

      do you have any information on a killer named Darrow I am doing research.
