      I haven’t been following this as close lately. Did Anita really say she knows what color Natalee’s panties are and mentioned marks on Natalee’s body? Or did someone make that up?

    4. Jerry from Ohio on May 1st, 2007 2:12 pm

      I cannot for the life of me understand why Greta is knuckling under to the V’S BOY ?
      She used to seem like she had good sense what the heck happened ?
      Please feel free to E-Mail me if anyone knows please I am trying to understand what they have on her or what she has been
      promised . Thank you Jerry from Ohio

    5. Carpe Noctem on May 1st, 2007 2:43 pm

      Hi Jenn,

      Yes, I believe she discussed Natalee’s panties
      with Beth & Greta Van Sasquatch during the visit
      where the “FABULOUS GOON-TARDO” PAULUS VAN DER SLOOT magically appeared out from behind the
      hedges out of his yard.:)

      *** I personally still hold the belief that Anita is just jealous, and longs for the day she could still FIT into pair of panties as dainty as Nat’s. That is why
      I think she was so fixated on them!

      NO GOOD PIGGGGGGGGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4 shame

    6. minnesota dad on May 1st, 2007 4:16 pm

      Pretty fascinating right now…..

      You have these searches progressing. Interesting to look at the big picture:

      1) two weeks ago, Jossy’s paper boycotted for ripping on the MEP government. Back then, I stated this was a first step in the final chapter of the cover-up. Muzzle the local media as much as possible in order to discredit and allow for spin from the media Aruba has control over.

      2) April 16th – Aruban posts on the Internet that 10 Dutch investigators came to the island to close the case down.

      3) April 27th – 20 Dutch Investigators begin investigating the Sloot property. Though secretive to the media, Paulus Van Der Sloot is privvy to every step of the investigation, stating, “They found nothing in their search of the property.” Why does Paulus get immediate access to the results of the search after everything that has happened?

      4) Joe Tacopina, LONG removed from this case, suddenly becomes the mouthpiece for the Van Der Sloots. Who is paying Joe to do this? Greta Van Sustern begins to spin the ‘Aruban party line’ also – misstating facts and obfiscating. Clearly, there is something going on to create the spin machine that we are seeing on FOX each night. I wonder if Greta was threatened with a “Dr. Phil” like lawsuit from Taco and instead, they quietly settled on she would advocate some of Joran’s positions. You will recall that Taco was saber rattling that he was going to begin suing people in the media for defamation. Something happened here.

      The end game is near and unfortunately it is going to be the Dutch investigators participating in the cover-up. Paulus is being tipped off as to results of searches, Greta is spinning to allow confusion among Americans that know what happened on Aruba, and attempts have been made to squelch the one media outlet that actually is trying to get Aruba to do the right thing.

      Say what you want to say….and again, I will eat crow…but the Dutch Investigators are just another “F16 Flyby”. Aruba and the Netherlands know that they cannot complete this cover-up without having an ‘exhaustive’ search by 20 crack investigators (of course, two years later than they should have been there). PREDICTION – the Dutch Investigators will state that after an exhaustive review and search, they could not find anything (you will see no comments made about the misconduct of ALE or judges who protected Paulus). This is the gambit – invest in the 20 crack investigators for 2-3 weeks, spin in the US media with Taco and Greta, and hope that Aruban tourism can recover as quickly as possible as the memories of the case fade.


    7. minnesota dad on May 1st, 2007 4:25 pm

      Oh, I forgot to add…as part of their “Someone on the beach” killed Natalee campaign…

      The usual suspects were rounded up approximately April 20th and began protesting the ‘Chollar problem’ on the island and its effect on tourism.

      Also, add in Joran’s book the day before the search begins in order to create further distraction.

      Folks, there is a final 45 day ‘spin’ playbook being executed here. While some are stating that the Dutch have extended Joran’s suspect category indefinitely, my ‘spidey sense’ tells me that in 29 days this will be spun as, “It is against Dutch Law to extend suspect status on a case…Joran is no longer a suspect.” Meanwhile, they have spun hard to make the “Chollars” and Boeti/Buti the center of attention after having ‘no results’ on their search.

      I agree 100% with the Minnesota dad, it’s all a roost and flapping in the wind. All for show, otherwise they would have interviewed the witnesses too. We’ll read about Greta one day in the paper too.

    10. Meee on May 1st, 2007 6:53 pm

      Like I said below. Minny Dad. I believe the same thing about Greta. They may have threatened her with a lawsuit. Now she’s pandering.

    11. Maggie on May 1st, 2007 7:06 pm

      Great posters and great job to Vicki on Dana’s show last night. Great show.. I liked when Larry Garrison said JoeT was on ABC good morning show and started spinning they are digging up the VDS’s yard to exonerate them and Larry said well why don’t they dig up the Kalpoes yard too and exonerate them.

      I didn’t watch Greta’s show.. I watched it a few nights ago the first time in over 6 months and really got tired of hearing JoeT allowed to sit there and make up more stuff and spin without anyone being allowed to be on at the same time to call him on it and his interupting people when they try to talk.

      Joran never explained why he lied except to tell more lies about why he lied the first 3 thousand times. Pathological lying is one of the most common traits of sociopaths. The FBI diagnosed him as one. It also says they operate on a scale of deception most of us can’t imagine.

      The Kalpoe’s called the law on Greta the last time she was in Aruba and said she was yelling Killer at their house, and Greta said she was saying Nadira. One reason to be mad at the Kalpoes.

      I always figured she was saying stuff about them to get them mad so they would talk. No way do I believe the Kalpoes pulled this off against Natalee alone, Joran would never take the fall for them. He’s repeatedly tried to throw them under the bus during his interviews and police statements.

      There’s not one person who says Natalee was at the beach that night except the 3 suspects. Maybe Greta wants to read about the 3 fisherman there that night said noone matching Natalee or Joran’s or the Kalpoe’s were there. Not one of all the couples that Joran saw on the beach came forward. Not one piece of evidence Natalee was on the beach. Nor do I believe someone came along and harmed Natalee then went to hunt down Joran’s and Natalee’s shoes, for what reason? I remember Joran saying also Natalee was at the Fisherman’s Huts and he didn’t want to go back to get his shoes because he didn’t want to hear her start talking to him again, after he said he left his shoes by the Marriot at the beach, nowhere near the Fisherman’s Huts.

      Only time they stuttering is when they are stalling for time while making up something else. Ask Joran a question, he repeats the questions, to stall for time or completely goes off topic to something else.

    12. Maggie on May 1st, 2007 7:10 pm

      Greta was a defense attorney.. I remember when people were saying all kinds of bad things about Bill Clinton when the Monica scandal was out and others would come on tv and defend him. One night some guy said that’s for appearance sakes on tv, when they are off the air, they called him all kinds of names and said bad stuff. I’m sure it’s the same way about this case. Probably 4-5 have a good idea what happened to Natalee.

    13. b4igo2it on May 1st, 2007 8:10 pm

      Did Satish run her over with his car? Seems odd that he washed the car in early a.m. hours because there was sand and ants in it. Who washes their car at approx. 4 a.m.? He has no alibi and not much said about him at all. I think he went to pick up Joran and unconsious Nat and accidently ran over her. Joran made him take care of the body because he had to get home … long night, test the following day, Deepak responsible for the GHB, Satish needed to fix this problem, not Joran (he wanted this nightmare of a night to end). Also wondering about comments on the crematory and its connection. Was she cremated? Is Deepak diverting attention from Satish because he is trying to protect him? Just wondering ….

    14. Mike on May 1st, 2007 8:22 pm

      @ #4

      I am confused as well. It feels like Greta jumped on the Aruba spinwagon by choosing to believe one particular lie from the mouth of an admitted pathological liar. Im having trouble dealing with some of the tones, regarding the Natalee case, in the MSM. It looks like these anchors, especially Greta, have accepted and are nearly trumpeting some ridiculous internet rumors, ie Boeti, a Kalpoe conspiracy w/o Joran etc. Will we ever get the *truth*

    15. Mike on May 1st, 2007 8:30 pm

      Oh yeah. Where is Beth?

    16. Just Me on May 1st, 2007 8:50 pm

      Greta is a midget snake. She wanted the Kalpoes bad, they didnt comply with her. Now she is trying to get them to talk. They are much wiser than the tall sporter. Well maybe not since they agreed to lie for him. He tried to frame them for his crimes against Natalee. Deepak anyway. Natalee was at the fishermans huts at some point which is why Joran said Deepak buried her there. When he told his father perhaps Paulus had her moved without Joran’s knowledge and he changed his story. This isnt freaking rocket science, unless you are ALE.
      Greta had her chance with the Kalpoes. She turned on them then wanted more and they refused. BOYCOTT HER SHOW TOO DAMNIT. She is no better than the perps.

      Unless I am stuck on stupid; has anyone tried to dig a grave? I have. It took two of us over four hours to accomplish a five foot grave site. And this was not the same type of soil that Aruba consists of. With the type of soil on Aruba my guess is a least 8 man hours with picks and shovels to dig a grave.
      Any shallow grave and wild animals would pick up the scent.
      IMO Natalee was not buried in the sense we are accustomed to: it would have had to be a crypt or perhaps a mine shaft.

    18. 10061906 on May 1st, 2007 9:18 pm

      To Minnesota Dad:
      As you said to me AMEN BRO!!! I could not agree with you more. You have to try and catch the little innuendos that slip out of the liars’ mouths every once and awhile.
      Paulus; When you have no body there is no case. And more recently; they (the Dutch Investigators) will find nothing. Those statements are finite and denote he has a reason other then innocence, that he is making those brash statements. In any other court of law the suspects would have been brought to trial based on their statements of what happened. This would entail a totally honest Presecution Office and legal system. Paulus was a member of the Prosecution Office for eight years. Then again I am sure all these perps, pimps and cover upper’s are probably atheists as most of the Dutch are and swearing on a bible would mean nothing to them. And before anyone jumps on me for that statement, I have already checked what the religious affiliations and the ancestral heritage of the Dutch are in the Netherlands. We also do not know what cases Paulus was involved with during those eight years and perhaps one who was convicted is blackmailing him and Van der Straaten against any future prosecution. Photos of them with Natalee would be perfect blackmail merchandise.
      I keep vacillating between cremation and disposal in the abandon mines near Seroe Cristal area. If cremation there would be at least four other persons involved. The funeral director or one of the henchman, a driver, the person placing the body in a special cremation casket and the person in charge of the actual cremation. And then what do you do with the remains? In second guessing myself that may be too many people to keep quiet. Although; this is the most complete disposal method. What you seek is not hidden and light the fires. All the areas of search, other than the recent VDS searches have lead everyone away from Montana. It is very possible that Paulus, acting alone could have taken Natalee to one of the abandoned mines. Maybe only his son, friend or wife may have been needed to help him.
      Here; at least for now there are no turncoats.
      No I was not making up the color of the underwear facts. As soon as I found the statement , as you know me I will post it.

      Investigation at Van Der Sloot’s Home Called Off for Time Being

      BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRCTV — FOX6 News has learned that investigators for the Aruba prosecutor’s office will not be going back to Van Der Sloot home’s for the time being. FOX6 News has also learned that they did not find any human remains during their digging Friday and Saturday.

    22. minnesota dad on May 1st, 2007 10:11 pm

      To take the ‘spin’ factor even further from my earlier posts — Paulus was not home the whole day of the yard search, but stated that the KLPD was just hanging out reading Joran’s book and laughing at it.

      If Paulus wasn’t home, how does he know this?

      I think the ‘spin machine’ is overplaying their hand. Make Paulus all upset with the 20 Dutch so that they are looked at as credible – reading the book on site and joking about it. First, this seems unprofessional of them to bring these books to the Sloot compound…almost as if they want to taunt Paulus. Second, the fact that Paulus disapproves of these folks on his property creates the credibility factor — so that when they trash can this case, they appear credible because they were antagonistic to Paulus. Under this situation, there is no way that they can be accused of being ‘on the take’ to complete the cover-up of the case.

      Again, way too coordinated:
      1- MEP Bans the only media source that wants the case solved 4/15.
      2 – The ‘usual protesters’ show up to protest ‘chollers’ and increased crime caused by them against tourists.
      3 – Joran releases his book which totally changes his timeline and fills gaps created by all of the evidence the KLPD has on hand that is conflicting for Paulus and others. 4/26
      4 – ‘Surprise’ visit to the Sloot compound to stick sticks in the ground and take some stuff off of the property. 4/27
      5 – Paulus confidently telling NOVA that ‘They didn’t find anything’ on his property. Appears Paulus has a direct line to the investigators. 4/28
      6 – Joe T. and Greta V. come on TV and start pushing the ‘Choller’/Boeti/Buti’ theory that maybe he did it after she was left on the beach. But, Greta won’t mention the name and tries to get guests to give the name — which the guests don’t because that would take focus off of our boy Joran and Paulus. 4/29-4/30.

      Let’s watch how the rest of this week plays out. I am here and waiting to eat a large piece of crow pie. Again, to date, no effort has been made to retract the Karin Janssen letter to PVDS — and this case won’t be solved until that happens.


    23. 10061906 on May 1st, 2007 10:35 pm

      Minnesota Dad: Under those circumstances would you mind if I bellied up to the bar with you and shared some of that crow pie with you. These three and other pimps are going to get off scott free; not because they were smart but because they were allowed to get away with murder. IMO if they were not in such a rush to get rid of a body; and if no one actually harmed Natalee; all the had to do was say: hey we were all just partying and having fun; she had a heart attack or something and keeled over. We called an ambulance but it was too late. I’m sorry this happened to this young tourist. Here is her body; please take her back to Alabama with our condolences. That’s all it would have taken.
      BUT NOOOooooo!!! Something bad happened.

    24. 10061906 on May 1st, 2007 10:46 pm

      IMO: The pimps (est.8) had Natalee in the main sleeping quarters at PVDS. In between turns, somehow Natalee my have struggled free and headed for the door. Being drugged or having been given an anesthesia and not aware of the dark surroundings stumbled out the door and fell on the rocks near the swimming pool. They brought Natalee back into the bedroom and instead of calling for help they let her die or the fall killed her. Either way it was the fault of the pimps.
      Come on Deepak; what was that something bad?
      Buy the way we have not heard from Steve Cohen; does he need depends now that he knows what happened?

    25. minnesota dad on May 1st, 2007 11:31 pm

      Bingo 1006…

      This all took place at the main residence….which explains the mattress, the furniture truck, and most importantly – the altering of the search warrant on site to exclude the main residence.

      Again — the boys did bad….Paulus covered for them and Aruba covered for Paulus.

      ”’Note to file… though Dutch investigators went through the Sloot residence to get diaries, etc., it appears they did not luminol the main residence for potential blood evidence. I do not know how long this process takes or whether the home needs to be sealed while testing…but Paulus was right back staying in the house at 6:30pm!


    26. 10061906 on May 1st, 2007 11:34 pm

      A type of defamation. Slander is an untruthful oral (spoken) statement about a person that harms the person’s reputation or standing in the community. Because slander is a tort (a civil wrong), the injured person can bring a lawsuit against the person who made the false statement. If the statement is made via broadcast media — for example, over the radio or on TV — it is considered libel, rather than slander, because the statement has the potential to reach a very wide audience.
      · “Defamatory,” that is, it harmed your reputation (as opposed to being just offensive or insulting)
      · Published to at least one other person
      · About you specifically
      · Made with the intent to fault you
      For most people, being described to others as “ugly” may be offensive or insulting, but it doesn’t damage your reputation. But if you’re a supermodel who makes her living based on her looks, being described as “ugly” by the head of a modeling agency could be defamatory.
      Different standards of fault apply, depending on who you are. If you’re a public official or figure, such as a politician, celebrity or some other well-known person, you’ll have to prove you were defamed with “actual malice.” You’ll have to show that the person defaming you knew the statement he or she was making was false or recklessly disregarded whether or not it was false.
      If you’re not a public figure, you’ll only have to prove that the person defaming you was negligent, failing to act with due care considering the circumstances.
      However with all the notoriety about becoming a judge and his son writing a book actually places these persons on a celebrity level. Mr Tacopina has to provide evidence and proof that these remarks were FALSE and actually caused harm to his clients. By the way these are the general laws of the USA; Aruba only has laws against the victim and her family. Under the circumstances I don’t think Joe wants any of his clients in a court of law; either as the plaintiff or defendant.
      So why hang around Joe?

    27. postahchild on May 2nd, 2007 2:42 am

      Re:#26. While Joran’s book may have made him a “public figure” within the meaning of the Supreme Court case New York Times v. Sullivan, merely the fact that at one time Paulus was in training to be a judge would not have the same effect on him. Paulus had already failed his judgeship exams before Natalee ever arrived on Aruba.

      From RWV:

      Sorry…I don’t really know how to post a link. The link above is to Riehl World View and I pasted it below my note here. It sounds like he is thinking the same things that are being talking about on Monkeys — Maybe everyone know this, but it is interesting — I think. Now….I have to get back to work, ya’ll are keeping me too interested in this issue!

      Oh, just a by the way, did ya’ll know that Greta is a Scientologist (supposedly)

      Here is the post:

      “Is Greta Van Sustern Selling Out?
      Fox host Greta Van Sustern appeared in an update on Bill O’Reilly tonight and referenced two witnesses who claim the land fill witness is credible. However, she did clearly hedge her bet by saying she hadn’t spoken to the witness herself.

      She then went on to reference quotes from Natalee’s Father, Dave Holloway as regards conditions at the land fill where the search is being conducted – which were reported as extreme, much like any land fill.

      In a post here, I pointed out that according to an NBC report, Dave Holloway has spoken to the witness in question and found his account questionable.

      The Alabama teen’s father said he spoke with the witness and isn’t sure the story is believable

      Given Fox’s ability to research, and Greta’s ability to ask Dave Holloway a simple question in this regard, one might wonder if she is reporting things as they are, or as internal Fox ratings watchers want them to appear.

      I am not a violent person…

      …but Joran needs to be handcuffed to a desk

      and beaten with a frozen turkey leg the size of the

      brontosaurus ribs order that flipped

      over the Flinstone’s car!

      It never ceases to amaze me how much grace, dignity, and patience that Natalee’s family has been able to maintain
      throughout this two year saga!

      You can really tell that they are not just out to simply
      lynch Joran, Deepak, and Satish.


      Quite simple,

      The three are still living after all of this,
      two years later. They could be eliminated in
      the blink of a gant’s eye.
