No Body, No Crime, Only in Aruba … Kendrick Williams Arrested for Murder of Missing Stepha Henry

 

IN AMERICA … NO BODY … THERE IS A CRIME!

So much for Paul Van der Sloot’s comments of “No body, no crime”. Those rules seem to only apply in Aruba. 32 year old Kendrick Williams was arrested yesterday for the murder of Stepha Henry. The 22 year old Stepha Henry had been missing May 29, 2007 while in Fort Lauderdale, FL attending a reggae concert on Memorial Day weekend. She got into a car with a man and was never seen again.

SOUND FAMILIAR!!! There are so many aspects of this case that completely mirror the Natalee Holloway disappearance in Aruba, except one.  Almost all missing person and murder cases are committed by the suspect who was last seen with the victim. The rules seem to change when it comes to Aruba and Joran Van der Sloot.

Stepha Henry’s body has never been recovered, yet Kendrick Williams was arrested for her murder. It does appear that that is a crime when there is no body, as long as there is no cover up and disposal of evidence.

Although Ms. Henry’s body has not been found, blood found in an Acura that Mr. Williams was driving at the time matched hers, the authorities said.

“No one could have survived losing that amount of blood,” said Jim Loftus, assistant director of investigative services for the Miami-Dade police.

He said that the police were still building a case and had no comment on a possible motive, but they did not believe that there was a sexual assault.

      Be afraid ARUBA, be very afraid.

      Blood stains from Ms. Henry found in Williams car didn’t mysteriously turn into chocolate did they?

      In Aruba, translated that means, the space ship got them, a unknown pantless man walking around everyone on the beach got them, or they never did exist to start with.

      I am so discouraged to hear the news of this blood evidence. I have held out hope that Stepha would return home to her loving family. Such a bright and shining star, she was. If Stepha’s family reads here, my thoughts and best wishes will continue in Spirit with you and Stepha.

      I am glad to read that the car was finally located, and Mr. Kendrick Williams is in custody. Perhaps more information will be forthcoming.

      “Almost all missing person and murder cases are committed by the suspect who was last seen with the victim.”

      All the evidence they have on Joran is circumstantial and not strong enough to convict a person for murder. This case wouldn’t even hold up in our court system with a jury. The burden of proof has to be beyond a shadow of doubt, at least in the US for a criminal case.

      So, in a case where there is no body yet there is CONCRETE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE a man is charged with murder.

      In a case where there is no body and no evidence that proves guilt beyond a resonable doubt, a man is let free.

      Go figure.

      And before you even think it, yes, I whole-heartedly believe that Joran v/d Sloot is guilty as hell and deserves punishment. I don’t believe however, that the island of Aruba should be condemned because of this one ***hole.

      Both the people of Aruba and those who actually have visited know better than to think of Aruba as nothing but chaos.

      Not to sound like you guys, but maybe, just MAYBE you should take a look around in your own backyard. Realize that you can’t “fix” the world if you yourself are so, so terribly broken.
