Are the Searches Over Yet in Aruba? Sources Say No … Is The Fisherman’s Huts Next?


First it was the search of the Van der Sloot residence.




(Above pics from Larry Garrison, The Newsbreaker)

Then it was a search of the Kalope residence.

So what is next on the Dutch investigators agenda? Sources say that, “the Dutch team has been working actively behind closed doors on the master plan they came with and are executing in phases.” So where to next? One thing is for certain that those that have been implicated as being close to or friends of Joran Van der Sloot who have been previously questioned best not be too surprised if the Dutch investigators come knocking. It is obvious that the Dutch investigators have gone though all of the material and have made a punch list as to what needs to be followed up on and what was never investigated initially in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.


(Fisherman’s Huts)

According to sources it would not be too surprising if the Dutch investigators start to examine more closely the Fisherman Hut area. The Fisherman Hut area is an important part of the case because it is referenced by the suspects in their declarations to the police.

This area is not important because of Joran Van der Sloot’s claims of having left Natalee Holloway there after an alleged walk on the beach that no one ever came forward and stated they saw the couple, but because of the Fisherman Huts proximity to the road and the Racquet Club.

Could the eventual search of the Fisherman’s Hut area lead to more clues are to this? The much speculated Fish trap that could have been used and put out to sea 3 to 5 miles.

      Tear the freaking island apart, leaving no stone unturned until Natalee is found!!

      Personally I believe the Aruban/Dutch authorities have all of the evidence they need to prosecute J2K all along, from day ONE, as well as “others” who were involved in Natalee’s disappearance…

      I agree! & Lots of SUCCES to the Dutch Investigative Team!!!

    3. kitty on May 13th, 2007 4:30 pm

      this is chilling ~ there was a gentleman who is a proffessional “remote viewer” that our military uses for his amazing accuracy in finding people and things… I heard him on talk radio way back and it had been mentioned that Natalee was in one of those traps, dropped in the sea as shown here… it makes me sick to think of ~ bless her ~ I pray, that her family has some form of resolve and I pray, that the KLPD remains diligent and keeps the pressure on ~

      I wondered today if Queen Beatrix would make sure that once the killers are found, if they would serve a life sentence for takin Natalee’s life, but also give multiple seperate additional sentences for destroying the Island of Aruba’s economy for the last 2 years… I find it absolutely appauling, that whomever knows something regarding Natalee’s disappearance, would let an entire Island, pop. 97,000 suffer along because of their sins…

      It’s purest evil and bad enough what they did to Natalee and her family ~ then to bring down an entire Island to boot!… wow… I personally, find it hard to comprehend ~

      Keep the pressure on Queen Beatrix and KLPD ~ please keep searching and find her, please… then and only then, will Aruba begin to slowly recover… Natalee’s family, bless them… will there ever be closure for them? … only their Faith in God, will sustain them ~ we need to cover them in continual prayer ~

      I thought by now, the K2 would fold and/or committ suicide ~ Joran, he’s too smug and a coward and would not even think to end his…and he has Pappa protecting him… Anita?? no one’s talking about her… she must know something ~ I’m always fascinated by psychics who work closely with police departments in cold cases (as seen on T.V.), I wonder, if the Dutch Gvm’t has any “remote viewers” and or/psychics they would bring in… and some from the U.S. to determine where Natalee is… keep the pressure on ~ I pray, they find her and bring Justice for Natalee.

      I would like the Dutch Team to look into the ownership of the Internet cafe, which Mr. Ramirez, the StepDad of the Kalpoes gained a 50 % ownership in August of 2005.
      I also think the Fisherman’s Huts area has been searched out. IMO Just because they said they were there, doesn’t mean they were. The cell towers go north to south, they could have been at the Raquet Club, just like the gardener said. Deepak could have been at home, waiting for a
      ” transmission ” of you can guess what. That long call made that night is of prime importance. Innocent persons do not tell stories that make themselves look guilty or have meetings around a pool at the Sloots to go over and memorize the lies. I hope Deepak and Satish are very afraid right now.

    5. boywonder on May 13th, 2007 5:18 pm

      Fishermans Huts is a broad term that means many things. In this case it means Hadicurari Beach…best known for the wind surfing competitions that are held here. Here is what others have to say about Hadicurari Beach:
      Vela Aruba, located on the beach at Fisherman Huts, offers direct access to the best wind and launch on the island.

      Hadicurari (Fisherman’s Huts)
      White powder sand with some pebbles and stones, and very shallow water. Excellent for boardsailing, Hadikurari is the place of the annual Hi-Winds Pro Am Windsurfing Competion. Windsurfing accommodations (Sailboard Vacations & Aruba Boardsailing School) sits a couple of hundred yards up the street to the north of the beach. Accessible by public bus or car.

      In spite of the rougher waters found towards the north, Hadicurari Beach is also very appealing, particularly for watersports enthusiasts or those wanting to snorkel.

      Hadicurari beach (home of the Aruba Hi-Winds Windsurfing competition), just north of the Aruba Marriott.

      There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that hasn’t been “discovered” by thousands of tourists, like not having to struggle through a crowd every time you want to take a dip and Hadicurari offers just that.

      Hadicuri, also known as Fisherman’s Huts, is a white sand beach with some pebbles and shells near the shore. The water here is very shallow and great for swimming in, or, for those who prefer to stay dry, shade huts are placed along the beach to provide respite from the sun.

      If the dutch team finds nothing I think “We the Monkeys” should hire a psychic and a couple others to run a video camera in aruba and get to the bottom of this mess !!! I would love to make a $ donation for something like this just to really find out some answer.

    7. diverboy on May 13th, 2007 5:52 pm

      Kalpoes dumbasses….your master Joran has laid the ground work for your stupid asses to pay. Bottom feeding is cool, aint it? How you feel now? Your scrawny inbred asses will be in Suriname as soon as you pay your debt of brown-nosing and ass-kissing to the ones that own your degenerate beings. Its your word against Joran’s asswipes….who makes the rules in Aruba? At least you wont go for the whole to jail for the length you should…but you are going zanates….and from there…back to Suriname. les pasa por pendejos, imbeciles.

    8. didi on May 13th, 2007 6:09 pm

      #3 Kitty, I once saw Sylvia Browne (psychic) on TV and she said Natalee was in the water and there were alot of tall trees around this water. Thought you might be interested in that.

    9. Skyboxx on May 13th, 2007 6:09 pm

      Am all for this attention and the searches, but aren’t we about two years late?????????

      Kalpoes are about to find out the meaning of PATSY. They should have come clean at the beginning. Aruba is dying from lack of tourism and they need to put a “nice” ending to the Natalee story. Papa, Joran, etc are all too “connected” Dompig not in power anymore, so the Kalpoes (cousins to Dompig) may be looking at being charged with the crime.

      Should have come forward when you had the chance. Maybe they can still cut a deal to get the real perps.

      Justice for Natalee

    10. Allan K on May 13th, 2007 6:20 pm

      Why haven’t the Dutch Police had Joran committed to a Psycho ward until arrest. He is a know criminal nutcase and more.
      Don’t they have laws about psychopaths roaming around.

    11. Allan K on May 13th, 2007 6:21 pm

      Go, Dutch, Go, farce!

    12. Rob on May 13th, 2007 6:25 pm

      Whether you believe the KLPD is doing the job that should have been done before and they are going to get a conclusion to Natalee’s case, I find it odd that they dress so unprofessional.

      I see a woman pushing a GPR and I see her bra straps and she is wearing clothes that hardly look appropriate for an investigation. I see others with the same rag tag attire.

      I’m not sure this really has anything to do with anything, but I find it odd that we keep hearing what a wonderful organization they are, they sure don’t dress the part imo.
      Personally, I find they look sloppy.

      Maybe this is their ‘on the road’ attire.. I have no idea. ..::shrugs shoulders::..

    13. dennisintn on May 13th, 2007 6:49 pm

      #l2, what you’re seeing are the hot weather “down and dirty” work duds of right serious people. i know i certainly wouldn’t be wearing a suit down there for fooling with chemicals and digging up somebody’s yard.

    14. Robert on May 13th, 2007 7:10 pm

      # Rob | May 13, 2007, 6:25 pm

      Interesting remark about the clothes. The clothes they wear say something about the kind of investigation they do: untill that point its probably mostly “surficial”. They’re clearly not afraid to contaminate evidence.
      In more “indepth” investigations they normaly wear these white suits.

    15. JusticeforNatalee on May 13th, 2007 8:10 pm

      Dutch Team,

      You need to get someone to talk.

      How about some arrests? How about some PRESSURE.

    16. 10061609 on May 13th, 2007 8:28 pm

      If the Dutch are looking for a body after two years and especially in the places they have been searching, I don’t believe they will find Natalee. If she were cremated, there is no hope of finding her. Only unless those responsible for the cremation come forward, no one will ever know.
      There is a possibility that she is on the VDS property.
      The Dutch should put together a timeline for:
      When was the patio was dug?
      When was the concrete was laid?
      What furniture was delivered by the Dana Furniture Store?
      What if any furniture was removed?
      Bring in cadaver dogs. If she were buried on the property, even after two years a good dog may be able to detect a corpse.
      There is also a possibility that she is in with someone else in a coffin placed in a crypt at St. Ana cemetery. Again they should bring cadavers dogs over to the St. Ana Cemetery. A body not embalmed should have a different odor. After two years I don’t know how effective a dog would be, but I believe it is better than looking in the sand dunes or the Carribean.
      There was a physic in August 2005 said that he kept seeing the words; and, andy, and he knew, and ana. He was not familiar with Aruba, he could have been referring to St. Ana Cemetery.
      Then we also have the abandoned gold mines and shafts in Seroe Cristal. There is a spelunking club on Aruba that may want to volunteer to repel down some of the airshafts.

      I feel cremation; but have hope in the St. Ana Cemetery. Three reasons; I believe the caretaker was murdered. Secondly; the pastor of the church put up a stink, waited for three days and then announced he would not meet with Dave Holloway. Third: Shango’s reference to Bifron. The god in charge of moving corpses. The other face of Gemini. Janus the other face is the caretaker and holds the key.
      May 30. May 31. June 1.
      PVDS is friends with the Funeral Home owners; IMO buried with another body is within the realm of possibility.
      Arthur Conan Doyle’s; “The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax”.
      What is the two year date for closing a case? Two years from when Natalee went missing or two days later when they acknowledge that perhaps a crime was committed.

    17. Susan on May 13th, 2007 8:35 pm


      Hopefully this tragic nightmare will soon come to an end for the Holloway family. Beth would have never left the island without Natalee, but was forced to leave or “something bad” would eventually have happened to her also.

      I’m outraged at the way the Aruban/Dutch authorities have handled the investigation. My feelings wouldn’t be the least bit hurt if tourism dried up completely in Aruba due to the incompetence of the ‘Keystone Koppers’. Aruba is the cesspool of the Carribean!


    18. JusticeforNatalee on May 13th, 2007 9:01 pm

      Dutch Team:

      We are counting on you.
      The corruption and coverup are right in your face.
      If we can see it, surely you can.

      Go after Paulus.
      He has been shielded legally by the coverup.
      Challenge and reverse the judgments made in his favor.
      There was sufficient reason to detain him.

    19. disgustedmom on May 13th, 2007 9:08 pm

      I sure hope the Dutch investigators have other persons of interest staked out to see if they are getting antsy.

    20. observer on May 13th, 2007 9:19 pm

      Clint Van Zandt Interview with Deepak,

      I told him I’d seen a statement attributed to van der Sloot in which Joran said he believed (or similar Dutch words) that Deepak had assaulted and murdered Natalee and buried her body. “How could a friend of yours say such a thing?” I asked. “You need to ask him,” he said… Have you asked Joran why he said such a thing?” “No,” he said,

      I said, “September 4th is a big day in this case. Joran either gets held for another 30 days or he’s set free. If he’s released is this case over?” “No,” he quickly replied, “it will never be over — Beth [Natalee's mother] will never let it be over, and the prosecutor is under pressure to do something in this case. It may not look like things are being done, but under the surface they are.” (“I hope you are right,” I said silently to myself.) “Would your mother let this go if you were Natalee?” I said. “No,” he replied, and I thought, “and neither would I.

      DEEPAK..Your right!! This will never ever be over!! Until you hear that next knock at your door at 7am. You will not get to collect 800 million dollars,You will not pass go and you will go straight to jail!!

    21. D.Nichols on May 13th, 2007 10:02 pm

      I hope the Dutch investigators have all the phone lines tapped, and I hope they have a sudden break through in this case and that there is finally justice for Natalee…

      I pray for Beth, especially today, Mother’s Day.

    22. ayfit on May 13th, 2007 10:14 pm

      Simple – polygraphs for all-bet none of the guilty would accept.

    23. chluke on May 13th, 2007 10:16 pm

      If the Dutch don’t try them and the case is dismissed, can the FBI have the foursome extradited to the US for trial. If they were able to and if the charges were premeditated murder with possibly some sexual crimes mixed in, these guys would all be facing capital murder with the death penalty as an option!!!

    24. Robert on May 14th, 2007 2:08 am

      Susan | May 13, 2007, 8:35 pm


      (Sorry I didn’t post earlier but I got to bed right after my last post yesterday.)

      You should’nt forget one thing: the Dutch didn’t mess up this case! The Aruban police, prosecutor and authorities did!
      Aruba is a more or less an autonomous part of our kingdom. If the Dutch had gotten in this case without being asked by the Arubans they would have said: “Hey you Dutchies COLONIAL TIMES ARE OVER!!!! We take care of our own business.” I think only when it turned out that the Arubans messed up and after the public in the US made this a BIG case, behind the scenes the Dutch authorities pushed the Arubans to let the Dutch come in.

      I think the Dutch team that is now working on this case is highly professional. They live up to international scientific and police-standards and most of the time cooperate with foreign policeforces (like Interpol, FBI, etc.) as is common for most policeforce nowadays.

      I think you must be a little patient – while keeping up the pressure though. This team has it’s own strategy and tries to solve this case within Aruban and/or Dutch laws. And if theyre there with such a big team I think they are hopefull this case will be solved in the end too!

    25. TruthInMB on May 14th, 2007 7:56 am

      Hopefully the Dutch will make their next stop in MB.

      where many answers lie (double entendre intended)

    26. minnesota dad on May 14th, 2007 10:05 am

      #25…Yeah right TruthInMB,

      We have heard the same again from you and your AHATA shill ilk.

      Right….someone from MB killed NH and then made her disappear….and then got on a plane a few hours later. These were eighteen year old rich kids…not seasoned predators and criminals which are easily found roaming the streets of Aruba and live above the law.

      We have seen all of the attempted headfakes….
      - Answers are in MB
      - Boeti did it.
      - Paulus even provided us with a letter stating that NH was pregnant with Jugs kid and that NH was never at C&C that night….
      - a blue eyed Dutch Sailor
      - yada, yada, yada

      You know, it all comes down to #19 Montana. The answers lie there. There has been no exhaustive search (no luminol, no digging up concrete, etc.). Everyone, including ALE and the judicial branch has done everything possible to shift attention away from #19 Montana. Well, we aren’t shifting our attention.


    27. Richard on May 14th, 2007 10:19 am

      The Fishermen’s Hut may have been mentioned in this saga, but let’s remember that fishermen who were out in the water said that they didn’t see Joran or anyone else near that place on that fateful night, as I recall.

    28. wingnut on May 14th, 2007 12:15 pm

      #25 – Does is even make a bit of sense that the MB kids would wait until they were in a strange place (double entendre intended) to “do Natalee in”? And then disappear her body so well? These kids were not familiar with the island, and certainly did not have the personal contacts that it would take to make her disappear.

      The predators did though….

      Hey Klaaaaasssssssssss!! Just got the chance to see the whole vid!! NICE JOB!! Been really busy and hard for me to keep up, but I try. Sometimes when I am logged in I am not at my puter, lol…I know you all know how that is.

      # 8 didi:
      A few physics have said she is in the water. Some say surrounded by trees. Some say looking up to a circle or hole in the sky.
      Some say she is laying on her back, looking up to a hole in the sky and surrounded by trees. They are perfectly describing the bottom of a mine shaft. At the bottom looking up you will see a small hole in the sky. The trees surrounding her are the wood pilings holding up the mine shaft. The water is what does not leach out.

    31. Meee on May 14th, 2007 4:17 pm

      I’m not a big fans of physics. But wouldn’t John Edwards be the guy to ask? Doesn’t he talk to dead people? Get him with Beth or Dave. And have Natalee cross over and tell them what happened?

    32. 10061906 on May 14th, 2007 4:40 pm

      Meee: I sent him a couple of emails last year. He makes too much money now and can’t afford to be wrong. He never responded to the requests…..

    33. JusticeforNatalee on May 14th, 2007 5:09 pm

      Yes, priest at St. Ana Church,

      Why would you not meet with Dave Holloway, a grieving father?

      Aren’t you supposed to do the right thing, the honorable thing?

      I hope the Dutch Team pays you a visit!

    34. didi on May 14th, 2007 5:15 pm

      I’m sort of 50/50 with this psychic thing…..however, if I were wealthy psychic, like Sylvia Browne, I would go down to Aruba and see if I could find her and not charge the family anything. I think all psychics are going to use the obvious choice she’s in the water, because that would probably be the hardest place to find her. I have to agree that the mine shafts would also be a good place to put her body. Have any of the mine shafts ever been searched? By the way, I want to applaud all you monkeys on your search, research and persistance in trying to find answers to what happened to Natalee. I don’t always get to read everything, but I know alot of you have put much time and effort into this and I hope we all get the answers and the TRUTH as to exactly what happened. Keep it up Monkeys!

      yep…Steve Croes is a DJ….but in his case it stands for Dumb-Jackass. The mental giant says he is a “pacific islander”…yeah..right….mulato pendejo is more like it. dont you know which ocean you are in, maje? using up oxygen is all this moron is good for. aww…. i forgot…you figured joran would “owe” you one, huh? kissing up to the masters? You take the cake, talk about stupid….pacific islander….ha ha ha….grow up, stupid.

    37. kitty on May 14th, 2007 10:55 pm

      Didn’t this Creos guy own a boat or have something to do with a boat early on in the investigation? just asking~

      Are there photo’s of these mineshafts and the area they are in? Why haven’t they been searched??


    38. 10061906 on May 15th, 2007 5:08 pm

      Kitty here is what one looks like: They are in the area of Seroe Cristal; about two miles east of the Van der Sloots.

    39. 10061906 on May 15th, 2007 5:09 pm
    40. charlierat on May 15th, 2007 6:54 pm

      Well, I can answer the question about whether or not the next search will be at the fisherman’s huts. The answer is, “No.” The Dutch team has returned to Holland.

      Absolutely gorgeous pictures of Aruba, though. You must admit, it is a beautiful island.


      SM:   Who says the Dutch team is back in the NL..Dilbart?   So Dilbart has an inside connection into what the KLPD is doing?   Don’t make me laugh.   By the way, beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess.   Aruba is nothing but a desert island as far as I’m concerned (klaasend)

    41. 10061906 on May 15th, 2007 8:30 pm

      Take a look at #39. Look how hard the ground appears. Most of Aruba is like that. The beach sand was imported.
      Now imagine someone digging through that rock in the middle of the night without power equipment just to bury a body. IMO it can’t be done.
      Placed in an above ground crypt or in the gold mine shafts is more permanent and a hell of a lot easier. I wonder how many other bodies PVDS has helped get rid of. “If anyone knows how to get rid of a body, its been said Paulus knows how.”

    42. kitty on May 18th, 2007 11:50 pm

      10061906 ~
      Has the KLPD been to the mine shaft(s)? Can camera’s be inserted into these gold mine shafts ~ way down below to see what may be in there?

      Just thinking out loud as to who would have specialized camera equipment that could be lowered into those shafts ~ Nat’l Geographic would be a place to ask… (sigh) ~ it’s rather a dismal looking place, isn’t it? Kinda gave me the creeps thinking that beautiful girl may be in there.. it’s sickening ~ I do not think she’s at the VDS compound.. she’s elsewhere ~ perhaps, you’re on to something here… (sigh)…

      I appreciate the comments you’ve made ~ you apparently are very knowledgable and I get the sense, you may live there…

      God bless Natalee’s family & friends ~ time for answers ~ I do hope that the KLPD is still there and have not returned to the Netherlands…

    43. kitty on May 20th, 2007 12:17 am

      1006 ~ MD and SM,

      What about the boat, Tatoo? ~ Was that the boat in question the night Natalee Disappeared? Was it ruled out? Anybody comment on this?

    44. Ryan Marks on May 21st, 2007 6:57 pm

      Sorry if this is a stupid question but why cant they just bring in the Kalpoe brothers and grill them with questions? The younger brother Satish would definately crack after hours of interrogation and questioning

    45. angela marisa on March 23rd, 2010 2:48 pm

      I am writing becuase I found this post and also responding to the latest photo taken by the couple
      regarding skeletal remains found diving in Aruba, beleived to be Natalee.

      I am not a registred phychic but since 2005 I have
      seen visions of the crime that has taken place. I do believe she is in the cemetery. A pastel like mosoleum. Natalee was placed there with another person who died around the time she disapeared. It is yellow pastel with lots of leaves like ivy and a little angel statue is nearby. I read one of the earlier posts. And I didn’t know about the death of the caretaker and priest. This may explain why I had these visions. I think somehow if this area can be investigated to help the family find closure.
