Natalee Holloway Disappearance: Aruba, You Have Bet Your Future Tourism on a Liar Named Joran Van der Sloot



How the lies of one person, the complicity of his family and an attorney have destroyed the tourism and image of Aruba. Define irony? Joran Van der Sloot admitting that he was telling a lie to save himself from allegations that he has admitted involvement in the death of Natalee Holloway. How narcissism and arrogance was the final undoing of Joran Van der Sloot.

(Paul, Anita & Joran Van der Sloot)

Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway went missing on May 29, 2005 while vacationing in Aruba with fellow Mountain Brook students. She was last seen getting into a car with Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe. She was never seen nor heard from again.

Ever since Natalee went missing Joran Van der Sloot, one of the three suspects Joran_VDS_1208in her disappearance, has lied through his teeth at every opportunity in the media, to investigators and in his statements. In the 2+ years that Natalee Holloway has been missing and the search has gone on to find her, Joran Van der Sloot has seen fit to lie at every chance making a mockery of the investigation, the authorities, and the Aruban people. Joran Van der Sloot is single handedly responsible for their decline in tourism and why people have come to have complete contempt and hate for Aruba. It is an unfortunate situation caused by one liar that has so greatly affected so many. Even today, Joran Van der Sloot’s lies continue.

It has been reported in the Dutch press and across the world now that Peter R.Peter_de_vries2 De Vries, a Dutch crime investigator, claims to have audio and video proof that Joran Van der Sloot admitted to involvement in the death and disposing of Natalee’s body. Peter R. De Vries claims that he has solved the case as to what happened to Natalee Holloway. Joran Van der Sloot is said to have provided documented audio accounts of what happened to Natalee Holloway that fateful night that she left Carlos N’ Charles with Joran, Deepak and Satish. The Sting Operation on Joran was part of an elaborate scheme by Peter R. De Vries using hidden cameras and individuals who befriended Joran over a period of time. The end result is being reported as a solving of the case as Joran van der Sloot admits involvement in her death and disappearance. After all this time, all that most everyone thought to be true, looks like it in fact was. Joran Van der Sloot had lied about Natalee’s disappearance and it appears that the truth is now coming to light.


But on Friday Dutch media reported that Van der Sloot gave details of Holloway’s death to an Aruban youngster who befriended him in the Netherlands.

The Aruban youth subsequently filmed him with a hidden camera on several occasions, during which Van der Sloot allegedly told him what happened with Holloway in 2005.

According to the reports, Van der Sloot had sexual intercourse with Holloway just before she disappeared. She allegedly passed out during the sexual act, following which Van der Sloot panicked and called a friend.

The friend took her body on a boat and then dropped it in the ocean. It remains unclear whether Holloway was dead at the time or just unconscious. (Monsters & Critics)

So what does a liar do who gets caught in the truth? What else, lie again. After have been caught telling the truth and bragging to what Joran thought were friends, Joran Van der Sloot is once again changing his story and saying that, get this, he was lying to his friend about his involvement in the death of Natalee Holloway.

(CBS/AP) Dutch student Joran van der Sloot said in a television interview Friday that he had told a friend privately he was involved in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, but that he was lying.

Van der Sloot’s comments on Dutch television show “Pauw & Witteman” came after reports that a crime reporter had captured him in an apparent confession. He was reported to have been caught by a hidden cameras saying Holloway had died after having sex with him, and that he then dumped her body at sea with the help of a friend.

So how does a Joran Van der Sloot, a compulsive liar, get out of getting caught telling the truth? He tells another lie. So with months of secretly taped conversations with Joran Van der Sloot, we are now supposed to believe that Joran was lying to a buddy saying he was involved in Natalee Holloway’s death. What kind of a sick bastard and sociopath would find joy and brag about such an accomplishment? Exactly what kind of sociopath did Paul and Anita Van der Sloot raise? Who goes around telling people that they were responsible for a girls death and disappearance when they have proclaimed their innocence and false imprisonment in the matter.

So either Joran Van der Sloot was tricked into telling the truth for once in his life. Or Joran willingly and gleefully accepted involvement and responsibility in a death when he knew it to be false. One might have to ask the question, which is worse? One is criminal and the other is criminally insane.

Aruba its time to make a choice and prosecute Joran Van der Sloot.

      XVI. Recent Development

      Update: Fri 01-Feb 1815 hrs

      The Persistence search team and crew are very excited about the recent developments announced yesterday, Thursday January 31st. We are currently acquiring data and have not stopped or changed our search methods in response to the announcement. We too wait with anticipation and hope the outcome is both positive and accurate for the remainder of the ongoing investigation.

      Our hearts and prayers are with the Holloway and Twitty families.


    4. hoepelman on February 1st, 2008 10:20 pm

      Joran felt free to speak about what happened, because the case was closed and the probability of it being reopened with still no body and no forensics were minimal…until the cameras and microphones caught him.

      I can’t wait to see the show on Monday and I can’t wait to hear who the friend was. Was it Gottenbos? Was it Croes?

      Too bad for Ingrid de Maaijer, JUlia Renfro and their Blame-Alabama project…I see both Amigoe and Aruba Today have the news of the confessions in their front page. It must taste like crap to be forced to publish these developments.

      I wonder if they are going to sue the mediums for feeding them bull crap visions and interventions…they should, because Castillo and Young should have forseen that Joran was about to fall into a trap. He could have been alerted by the psychics if they had done they job right!!!!

    5. Sharon Chicago on February 1st, 2008 10:26 pm

      Just talking out loud….

      Do you think instead of Steve C. or Koen do you think that Deepak might have known where to get a boat really quick, a relatives small dingy?

      Do you think it was Deepak that took Natalee out to sea with Joran?

      If it was Koen would his father have moved the family off the island to Georgia like that? or maybe Koen knew what Joran and his other friend Steve C. did and Koens dad wanted Koen to have a chance in life and moved him off the island because he did not want the publicity bad karma reflected on Koen since he was a good friend of Jorans?

    6. Brenda on February 1st, 2008 10:31 pm

      Is there a single human on this planet with an I.Q. above zero that did not see this coming…I mean, Joran saying “it was all a lie”.

      Oh please Joran!!! At what point have we been able to trust you to tell the truth when you thing you’re being watched/listened to by anyone that YOU think could give a crap to do something about it???

      Ohhh…I am sad the body is at sea, but that was really expected (by me anyway). Now, let’s remember the boat owner’s name and give some he11 to him!

      So, she “died” during sex? Yeah, I am sure Joran in the sack would do that to anyone who WAS NOT given a date rape drug!

      Sorry, that was crass…but there is nothing about the Van der Sluts OR the Aruban officials who helped cover up this matter that isn’t. Is there? If so, let me know.

      One who would like to dump JOran out to sea (about 20 miles out), and for his sake, hope he’s a darn good swimmer.

    7. Sharon Chicago on February 1st, 2008 10:32 pm

      Wondering if on the tape if Joran ever mentioned his “friends” name that came with a boat. Sounds like he did not.

      Also, wondering if he mentioned where they launched the boat from or what location in the ocean they went out to/how far?

      Maybe the persistence has this information and are now working that area to find the cage with Natalee’s remains?

      I am thinking Joran would not want to just drop Natalee in the ocean incase she washed up shore or part of her body did and toxicology would report that she had a date rape drug in her system and he put her in a cage to sink her.

    8. Brenda on February 1st, 2008 10:36 pm

      ok, that last post was not very, well proof-read. Not at all actually, but that “I lied again” makes me want to go one on one with that weenie wacking little nothing of a nothing.

      So what if I’m 5’4″ and 120 lbs? That is obviously MUCH more than Joran can handle without rendering them unconscious. temper and I would love to get our hands on that little piss’es throat.

      (I must ask piss to forgive me for speaking so lowly of it….sorry.)

    9. Observer on February 1st, 2008 10:37 pm

      Now all Mos and the Prosecuters office has to do is confer with Oduber,Briesen,R,Croes,Aruban Tourism Authrority and the AHATA. Tourism first everything else second.

      This time Joran is cooked and Rudy Croes and his evil group are already in damage control. We know Paul Van Der Sloot said he would tell more but it would hurt too many people. I believe those people work for that Govt so It will be interesting to see how they try to cover this up this time,because if they don’t then Paulus will sing.

    10. Miss-Underestimated on February 1st, 2008 10:38 pm

      a relatives small dingy?

      That would be in Papa VDS unzipped pants.

      Sorry couldn’t help myself.

      I lied, I lied, I lied, and that’s the truth.

      I am inclined to think ….Joran maybe getting his just dues.

      Taco joe is now saying that URINE lied when confesing to the crime…I wish someone would put a bullet in taco joe and urines head…IM SO SICK of these SICKOS…..WE NEED TO BOYCOTT THIS FREAKIN ISLAND MORE THAN EVER..the SLEEZE, FILTH, CRIME,RAPES, MURDERS..and LIARS that live there just need to stay by themselves…We need to get a cruise ship and take the innocent ppl off of there and bring in all the pedifiles and sociopaths and just blow up all boats that are ther and forget about SATANS ISLAND…

    13. Brenda on February 1st, 2008 10:50 pm

      More from an angry American mom who would rather go to Death Valley for a month without a toothbrush than Aruba for a day (and my breath would still smell better than Joran’s after a month without Colgate).

      You lying whimp! Did the rest of you read what I did??? That Joran’s voice was “cracking”? SOB, SOB, SOB for Joran. Do any of us (like me) REMEMBER the last time he weeped for himself? Was the first time he went to jail! YUP. The ONLY other time so far that I can remember he has truly been scared. So, mommy’s little pookie-poo is frightened. GOOD!

      Know who he reminds me off? That little fat kid in the Harry Potter movies. You know, the evil little cousin whose mommy made him into a monster while daddy sat back and enjoyed observing the monster BEING a monster? Dudley! That’s it…Dudley! That is what I think I’ll call weenie boy from now on.

      Hey Joran, you will make someone a fine girlfriend in jail. Just hope you don’t pass any diseases to them…like stupidity.

    14. janet on February 1st, 2008 10:55 pm

      I hope they get that slime Joran….He is so haughty and so confident….Throwing the wine in the reporter’s face shows his arrogance!…I think his father should be held responsible also…and if those Kalpo (or whatever their names are) brothers have any sense, they better come forth with the truth before it is too late….as Joran, knowing his evil ways, will blame it all on them in the end…I love it….Truth will reign in the end!!!!…

    15. Brenda on February 1st, 2008 11:01 pm


      There is no chance they are going to find anything if her body was put in water. Even if in a cage. The sea has a life of its own and you do not find fish or other marine-life bones on the beach for a very, good reason. The sea lives off of itself. I mean, Laci Peterson was at sea 3 months and there was almost nothing left of her. The unborn baby was OK for the most part because it had taken that long for her body to deteriorate enough to release it as she was anchored down. Laci’s body was skeletal at that point. Plus…it was December and the waters were cold.

      Almost 3 years on the warm waters of Aruba do not offer me any hope of recovery, but no matter, we have what we need in Dudley’s confession.

    16. katablog on February 1st, 2008 11:05 pm

      Would we ever hear the truth from Joran? I doubt it. I believe that one has to take all of his lies and be able to separate the truth within the lies.

      For example, in his latest confession he makes it Natalee’s fault – drug overdose supposedly not administered by him or his cohorts. We know this isn’t true.

      Yes we know Joran had sex with Natalee, but I believe this is how Natalee sustained a head injury and I believe that she fought back – either making Joran angry enough to kill her or perhaps causing a reaction from the Ghb.

    17. Miss-Underestimated on February 1st, 2008 11:17 pm

      Joran you now admitted that you were the last person with Natalee.

      So how long before your buddy(s) with the boat turn on you?

    18. Sharon Chicago on February 1st, 2008 11:20 pm

      Greta was just on and she was standing her ground with her team of attorneys rattling on…. She still thinks Joran might be innocent. She was pounding the fact that many people in prison have been proven to be innocent of murder crimes but had previously said they did murder the victim…..still defending Joran

      She needs some tibetian herbs for her hot flashes, she must be going through the change of life!!

    19. buster on February 1st, 2008 11:21 pm

      Brenda it has bean said that the water is deep and no life exists down there and that it is very cold so a body could remain intact for some time, Let’s keep on praying and hoping

    20. Sharon Chicago on February 1st, 2008 11:24 pm

      #6 Brenda… Is there a single human on this planet with an I.Q. above zero that did not see this coming…I mean, Joran saying “it was all a lie”.


    21. Sharon Chicago on February 1st, 2008 11:26 pm

      Greta wants to watch the tape Sunday before commenting and wants to make sure tape was not spliced…..

      Watch she will still defend Joran on Monday!!!!

    22. katablog on February 1st, 2008 11:27 pm

      Just how evil and vile could a family be to allow the Aruban people to suffer for over 2 years, vilify Natalee, Beth, Jug and the MB kids, allow Dave to spend days digging through a garbage dump, collect money off books about the crime, send the Kalpoes and two innocent black men to jail……………

      We KNOW that Anita and Paulus HAD to know what their young sporter was capable of. We know they HAD to know he was responsible in crimes against Natalee. Yet they sat by, did TV interviews, talked about what a wonderful boy he was and lied almost as chronically as Joran. These have to be the absolute hands down award winners of the worst parents in history award.

      It’s very telling to watch Joran throw wine in de Vries face and then see his parents’ non-reaction. Anita stands there. She does nothing to show shock. Nothing to show even frustration and certainly nothing to help. Paulus also just stands. No look of shock, no grabbing and reprimanding of his son – nothing if not a little giggle.

      I guess in retrospect perhaps we should actually feel a bit sorry for Joran that he had to be “raised” by parents like these.

      How much more pain are they willing to bring upon Aruba, Beth, Natalee’s name, Jug, Dave and his wife and all those who love Natalee?

    23. Deetch on February 1st, 2008 11:28 pm

      Can someone tell me just what Greta is “inclined” to believe?

      Is she still eying the security guards?

      in his eye.

      See for yourself. He was either laughing or suffering a wicked gas attack!

    27. Patti on February 1st, 2008 11:48 pm

      Personally, I think that it was always the plan

      to have Joran take the fall if the pressure got

      too intense.

      Next, we’ll be hearing confessions of insanity!

      Will Joran, finally, be placed in an assylum

      in The Netherlands, like Van der Straaten had

      talked about on June 10?


      Aruba… the land of a thousand schemes…



    28. brie on February 2nd, 2008 12:02 am

      Joran looks like Frankenstein…just add a few screws on the side of his head and you got it….

    29. brie on February 2nd, 2008 12:05 am

      Maybe Joran choked Natalee with sand…OH My God!!

    30. JusticeforNatalee on February 2nd, 2008 12:11 am

      “She still thinks Joran might be innocent.”

      I still think Greta might be stupid.

    31. brie on February 2nd, 2008 12:13 am

      I uphold Jossy and his decent people of Aruba who had nothing to do with any of this…Natalee’s family has never spoken evil of any of them…except those of which were far as everyday people they have been under distress…knowing the Aruban authorities…I feel sorry for them !!! And I think both Beth and Dave would agree, along with Jug!

    32. brie on February 2nd, 2008 12:16 am

      The decent people of Aruba are good…what they have through is all because of the Sloot’s!!!!

    33. Bob on February 2nd, 2008 12:29 am

      In the end, BOTH the Sloots and the TOP GOVERNMENTAL corrupt officals, Polis, and Tourism Team who conspired to obstruct true justice…..all will be held accountable for retribution and punishment. The BOYCOTT is not going away or will stop. To the contrary, so many were complicit in the cover up, insanity, lies, conspiracies, and INSULT to the victims family….they all will pay. Having Joran stand trial won’t change a thing, he is just step #1. There will be more to come. Bet on it.

    34. andy on February 2nd, 2008 12:51 am

      i think aruba will not prosecute joran, but then defries will make a mockery out of aruba and they will suffer immensely; as he will broadcast that the former dutch island of aruba has become a moral cespool; then aruba $ will force kalpoes to turn evidence to clear their name; and joran will then go to jail

    35. Bob on February 2nd, 2008 12:55 am

      The ‘decent little people’ in Aruba need to hold their corrupt officials responsible for past miseries they’ve suffered, and that which is yet to come….from their TOP disingenuious Minister, to the various Chiefs of Polis, to the Head of Tourism, and everyone who conspired to make the citizens of Aruba swallow drums of lies, distortions, cause them to suffer higher taxes, less benefits, and more. The entire world is watching and is disgusted with ARUBA and their approach to human dignity issues.


    36. Carl the Detective on February 2nd, 2008 1:18 am

      he was lying? really? you admitted to a friend that you had sex with a girl and she passed out and you disposed of her at sea? with a boat! you were just kidding? i’ve never in my life heard of someone ‘making up a story about killing someone’ for fun. you spineless, lying, gutless little man. you took credit for it because it’s true.

      its got to be tough living with the fact that you were home free and your dumb, drunk self couldnt contain your ego. you are entitled to nothing young man. you took a life and you have to live with the fact that you’re so dumb, your mouth got the best of you. enjoy prison and think of the great life you stole. you are a dumb man joran, a very dumb man. enjoy prison.

    37. Balkenende on February 2nd, 2008 1:46 am

      This is what I see will happen: JvdS will say that he lied to his friend. He will be brought to trial, and then there are 2 possibilities: 1. the judge rules that this so-called confession is not enough evidence and JvdS walks free 2. the judge rules that it is enough evidence and JvdS will be sentenced for illegally disposing of a body, in which case he’ll be out of jail before you know it. This guy deserves a much higher sentence, but I expect the outcome will be very disappointing for followers of this case.

    38. brie on February 2nd, 2008 1:49 am

      I don’t believe Joran had sex with Natalee…I do believe he tried and therefore lost his temper and killed her…..the male whore..

    39. Whydontwekillthesloots? on February 2nd, 2008 1:52 am

      Jurine is lying, she didn’t die after having sex with him, but with Paulus. She knew who he was, doubtless jurine bragged papa up to her. She sobered up to see jurine standing there and papa on top, and she put up a fight, and then they killed her. The dutch wouldn’t want that sort of trouble, so they went along with the sloot joo lie. Paulus is the one, jurine is protecting him, someday someone will have to show me why the dutch are so peoud, they got their ass kicked by hitler and never amounted to much. The pride must come from the evil.

    40. Jasmine on February 2nd, 2008 2:36 am

      I think Joran did lie to his friend. I think what he really did was even worse than what he admitted.

    41. Josh in Dallas on February 2nd, 2008 2:47 am

      Kinda disappointed. I might consider it a great interview if you pronounced Jossy’s name correctly. Doesn’t that show a lack of knowledge to a degree?

      Yo-see. Not Jaw-see.

    42. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 2:51 am


    43. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 3:03 am

      Joran, Paulus,Deepak,Satish, know exactly what has happened to Natalee. Joran for sure, every detail. Your lies have caught up with you all and it’s about time. You all are involved in this one way or another and you will pay one way or another. I can only honestly say this, if for some reason you get out of this its a mere short time. In the end your maker you will have to face and I do want to see you try and lie to him. I may never see justice for this sweet young girl that had her whole life ahead of her, but do know this, you will be judged on your actions accordingly. Eternity has no time line and statutes, something for you to think about. I may not be around to see the justice for Natalee, but I promise, you will be judged and dealt with accordingly. You took a life for self pleasure and you shall pay the ultimate price, what ever that may be. You have to know you have Killed the sloot name and so tarnished it that people from everywhere will reference the name to this unfortunate crime in Aruba. I would be so embarrassed to even know you and especially be related to you, now anyone related and close are in harms way as well.

    44. brie on February 2nd, 2008 3:13 am

      If Joran was on the beach with Natalee I would think he didn’t get his own way and therefore gagged her and choked her with sand!!!

    45. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 3:14 am

      You have choked your own chicken so to speak, cut your own throat, and thats good, no one had to do it and get blood on their hands. Im betting your an outcast at school huh Joran, no friends? Gee, I wonder why. LOL, everyone looking at you? Wondering? LOL, Im betting everyone is soooooo laughfing at you because your such a loser and a cry baby. Who changes your diapers Mom, or Dad, lol.

    46. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 3:37 am

      This is for Joran and hopefully he reads it:
      Do you have any idea what you have done? You took a young promising girls life from her. She had hopes and dreams just like the rest of us do at that age. She could of been a mother, a wife, a grand mother, an inspiring young doctor. No one will ever know now , you took all that away from her. You made her life what it is, no one else. You took her life from her and the rest of us. How do you feel? You only wanted her body to make you feel good, why? Why did you do this? Does nothing else matter to you than how you feel? You have so acted like you are God and can do what you please. Your not God!! You will however face him. I hope you have answers for him, because he already knows what was in your mind and heart.

    47. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 3:57 am

      Something else I want to add, lets say the sloots do finally tell the truth, lol. Who will believe them? At this point they can say whatever they want and expect us to believe them. They may tell a parcial truth and or the whole truth, but who knows if it is the real truth, they have lied so many times, I think it will be up to every induvidual to make their own judgement as to the truth.
      Is it possible that the sloots have considered this a long time ago and hoping for this kind of outcome? Something again to think about.
      To me, there has been to many leaks about this investigation and the media getting a hold of it and exploiting it to be used as evidence. Even now with the evidence that peter devries says he has has been so exploited, it makes me wonder. Last month the new evidence that was supposedly had was nothing more than old stuff and just revisited. A big let down. Now, if we have tangable evidence in a form ,thats awesome. If we don’t, then its a game again that we are all familiar with. But I guess time will tell.

    48. Dan on February 2nd, 2008 4:08 am

      From past investigations, I will be very surprised if Joran gets anything other than interogated again. Get some profesional people there to do the interogations please, providing they get to rearrest him.

    49. canada day on February 2nd, 2008 9:20 am

      #40 Jasmine, you nailed it and that’s the truth. Urine is a flat out liar. How he killed Natalee was no accident. And let’s not forget the corrupt authorities in Aruba who have covered up and continue to do so.

      Investigate the investigation and then the full truth will come out. Of course that will never happen.

      Therefore the boycott continues!

    50. disgustedmom on February 2nd, 2008 10:19 am

      I still don’t think this is the whole story. I don’t think a boat was involved. I think, rather, a boat story would be a convenient way to end people looking for Natalee should the Persistence not fine anything, which means to me she is not in water and could be found, Joran has to lead away from that.

      Can’t wait to see/hear the actual order that Joran said what he did to Natalee. It would be important what order he mentioned things…such as with the Jon Benet case and the mom’s 911 call….

      Patsy said, in this order…..My daughter has been kidnapped….then the 911 operator asked, what? and Patsy said…I found a note, and, my daughter is missing. (she was already trying to prove what she said was true about kidnapping)

      When the operator asked her to repeat what she said (about her daughter being kidnapped) Patsy should have repeated it! If she really thought her daughter had been kidnapped, she would have repeated kidnapped again…but she didn’t and instead went on with ‘a story’ of her own actions that morning…..I found a note and my daughter is missing. And by her choice of what to say first, she is laying out her story in the order she wants the cops to believe, which is backwards of the actual events. IMO

      So whatever Joran says in whatever order will be important in my mind. If he lays it out in order….sex, died, called a friend, disposed of at sea….then he is making a story, not being truthful. Truthful would be if he reported it in reverse or mixed up order.

      this whole nova thing comes across kind of contrved, i think the wine was staged for by Deviries to build up a settling resoolution to the story and this is just how the dutch will get out of having to explain a rapist judge in training and all his buddies who helped, like maybe other officials, and thus save the credibility of the court system while letting jurine off the hook. I hope they pay for that.

    52. glad2bAmerican on February 2nd, 2008 11:13 am

      Maybe…Just Maybe
      Han Mos, Aruban Chief Prosecutor knew if he closed the case Joran’s cocky self would think he got away with a crime and as a narcissit would start bragging about his accomplishment!
      Makes me wonder!

    53. glad2bAmerican on February 2nd, 2008 11:19 am

      Joran is a narcisst and could pass a lie detector test because THEY BELIEVE THEIR OWN LIES
      Everyone involved including Paulus and Anita should be charged with the same crime for protecting him…the prison couldn’t hold all of them! Undercover cameras/tapes/pictures etc are used in our courts as evidence against cheaters and liars.
      All the money $$$$$$$ spent on protecting this case indicates just how much dirty money is being made in Aruba.

    54. Carl the Detective on February 2nd, 2008 11:29 am

      then Joran said, “Ok, look I’m sorry. Can I get a do-over? Man, what’s the big deal? I always pulled girls out of C&C, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. Like you never slipped a little ghb and X into a drink, I mean come on! it enhances the sex. she wanted it! she wanted me bad, so i gave it to her. i took her to the beach and yea, we had sex no big deal. i was shocked when she blacked out. that doesnt normally happen. I mean, sometimes girls pass out, but that’s the point. this girl wouldnt wake up. maybe she shouldnt have done those last few shots. that’s on her, not on me. so what was i supposed to do? if i would have called 911, they would have known that i took advantage of her and they would have known that we drugged her. that’s how i kept the kalpo brothers quiet. i told them, look man, you were apart of this too. i got the X from deepak and he’s the one that drove, so i had him over a barrell. he doesnt have a pot to piss in, so he would have been screwed. not me though, my old man is best friends with cops and the attorneys. of course i had to play that card. like you wouldnt have done the same thing? give me a break. you fools looking in the landfill, that’s hillarious. we live on an island, you werent smart enough to know i dumped her at sea with a boat. how stupid. so there, that’s the story, now, can we just get on with it, life as usual. i wont rape anyone again, i learned my lesson. it was one girl man. i know i shouldnt have told that dude the truth, it was stupid, but come on man, just give me a break.

      Watch the video of Beth and you will see she said look what they did to their country. Sloots did this to Aruba. Aruba you better take your island back before its too late

    56. Betsy on February 2nd, 2008 1:38 pm

      you are in this thing too Paulus! Did you rape Natalee’s dead body before assisting your son with getting rid of her?

      Natalee was not your trash. You treated her as less than an animal. You are the animals! You are pigs! You are all pigs!

      Not only did you cover up this crime, but you participated in it. The truth is coming out than God and you are going to fry!


    57. Carpe Noctem on February 2nd, 2008 7:01 pm

      Okay, Steve Croes, is he Aruban?

      Did he have full access to the Tattoo Water Taxi

      or another boat that night?

      Steve plugs in somewhere, he’s

      been flying under the radar… but he’s a

      disgusting, lying piece of trash… and only

      a giant swinging horse’s hangdown would turn himself

      in to the police for overhearing a Deepak phone call.

      *I mean c’mon Steve & Deepak… I know you’re

      lying radio-active toxic pieces of human waste,

      with very little upper lobe activity…

      but a 12 year old could have come up with a better

      story. That sh– is INSULTING. I mean 4 REAL!



      Was fired for leaving his TATTOO post that night.

      Also, I love how they timed out Steve getting

      out of jail, with Joran’s psychotic, cut throat

      father, Paulus OF OF THE DITCH — or as some

      of us call him:


    58. Richard on February 2nd, 2008 7:08 pm

      For myself, I don’t give a damn what Greta or any other TV clown says or doesn’t say about the case, or what they believe. Their interest, insofar as I can see, is purely, solely, and 100% in getting air time and in attracting attention.

      I don’t think any one of them really cares about Natalee, Beth, Dave, Matt, the others in the family, or in getting justice in this case.

      They’ll move on to another tragedy.

      WE have done much, much more to promote justice than any of the TV talk people. I firmly believe this.

      Let’s keep doing it. Let’s press on with the boycott campaign and spread the word as best we can.

      Now that I’m a bit calmer … what’s interesting is that, apparently, Joran didn’t disclose the name of his “friend” who had the boat and who helped him dispose of Natalee’s body.

      I don’t for a moment accept that ANYTHING from Joran’s mouth HAS to be true. It seems very unlikely that he might have known that he was being set up, and so played along … and even less likely that some Arubans did this as a double-cross on Peter deVries … I don’t think this is the case … but I won’t rule it out.

      And as I said before … yes, there are “good” people on Aruba. But let them take the consequences of the actions, and inactions, of their government. We owe Aruba NOTHING.

    60. Natalee Holloway Investigation: Joran Van der Sloot Attorney Joe Tacopina Loses His Mind Trying to Defend Joran Van der Sloot | Scared Monkeys on February 2nd, 2008 10:45 pm

      [...] Tacopina tries to use the concept of “False Confession” as to why Joran Van der Sloot made the comments of implicating himself in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Now Joran says, “he lied”. [...]

    61. Brenda on February 3rd, 2008 10:45 am


      Well, Greta YES (and I must wonder about her I.Q. being above zero)… but Taco? Me thinks he is in the same slime pit of thought at momma and daddy Sloot in that he knows Joran is guilty and is not concerned. All about winning, not the truth.

    62. Brenda on February 3rd, 2008 11:04 am


      Not sure where you got your information, but it is not so! The ocean is teaming with life in every square inch. In my youth, I wanted to be an oceanographer until I was in high school and read/watch everything on the subject I can to this day. Even under the polar ice caps and in the deepest of ravines in the Atlantic…life exists and thrives.

      Don’t know where you got your information, but POSSIBLY even the marine life has chosen to boycott Aruba ;>)

    63. Auntiem on February 3rd, 2008 1:00 pm

      I am counting the minutes until 3:30….I believe that what we will learn will be very hard to take…..Listening to the beginning of Chris Cuomo, he made a comment that leads me to believe that Joran goes into graphic detail about what was done to Natalee. Beth’s video clip too, gives me the impression something truly horrific was done to her, while she was alive and also to her corpse. What else could she have meant when she said..”Look what they have done to Natalee….” Her demeanor was so out of character (IMO) she seemed to be dazed or in shock!!!

      It surprises me ABC got the rights to this video…it also disturbs me. It was they, after all, who gave the Sloots the coverage and credibility. Cuomo, too…..

    64. Auntiem on February 3rd, 2008 1:04 pm

      Forgot my initial reason for posting….I wish someone would translate the interview of Jan 11 with de Vries and Joran. Just seeking the look on deVries’ face, the loathing that appears to be there…..whatever the dialogue was between the two to cause Pigboy to throw the wine….

    65. cybergal on February 3rd, 2008 9:24 pm

      Hey, he named the person that helped him with the boat to dispose of Natalie. I look forward to seeing that slime Joran go to jail for good. What a cocky creep to have put his family and Aruba through what he did and admit he did not lose sleep over what he did? Sad, so sad. What bothers me, is if it was an accident why did he feel he had to dispose of her. Consential sex and her passing out was not a crime. So the fact that he disposed of her (like she was garbage) indicates guilt – I guarantee he gave her date rape drugs. From what I gathered Natalie would not have gone off with him without being drugged. I thought I read he pushed her face into the sand while having sex also…Again, I look forward to his going to prison for life, and hopefully for a long, long time. The life of a beautiful spirit (Natalie) was taken, and families ripped apart….a mother longing for truth and the ability to put Natalie to rest (bring her home)…in limbo. I wish all the women (girls) that you have taken advantage of would all speak up – possibly that would add additional credit to what a broken character you have!

    66. Jack on February 3rd, 2008 9:29 pm

      Your dutch translation is wrong, JvdS did not say they tried CPR on her to check if she was alive, he said he shook her and his friend bent over and looked at her. This is how they concluded she was dead.

    67. Vans Paskel on February 4th, 2008 11:50 pm

      I have a very simple way to resolve the problem, the public should demand to have Joran take a lie detector test, a brain fingerprinting test, which has shown to be 100% accurate, unlike the poligraph test. I’m just not sure if it will be accepted as a legal proof. This test can be done to any others that are suspects in this case. The person who denies to do this, is because he simply is guilty. Even if it is not accepted as legal evidence, it will at least bring clarity on the case. By the way, you can BOYCOT Aruba for having a corrupt government, and having to follow the Dutch law like a sheep to the slaughterhouse, but the VERY BEST would have also been that Joran had also gotten his BIG COMPENSATION after ruining us. That is the REDNECK blood that flows in his and MANY OF YOUR RACIST veins. LONG LIVE THE MOTHERLAND HOLLAND. GOD BLESS ARUBA!!!

    68. Vans Paskel on February 5th, 2008 12:56 am

      For all REDNECK hate lovers, RACISTS and satanists, you don’t need to ask anything else from Aruba, just DEMAND to Holland that they extradite Joran & company to the U.S. If they refuse, BOYCOTT them (strange but I haven’t heard or seen this before in any hate forums for your MOTHERLAND).Let me REALLY DOUBT THIS! And for Vicky, Brenda, Patti, Bob, Canada day, glad 2b a REDNECK, and Richard, you don’t need to wish us any more bad luck, we have been paying for several decades, because of the votes of our own redneck population, who have elected our good politicians that have even raised their own salaries more than 150%, while the Aruban community has only gotten more and more taxes.
      You think you are paying high gasoline prices? Make some research to know how much we have been paying for gasoline during the last decades.

    69. Vans Paskel on February 5th, 2008 7:02 am

      If you stand by your word, I have set up a voting forum to DEMAND for Joran & company’s extradition to the U.S., and for brain fingerprinting tests to be performed on them. That is of course, if you have the guts to do it!!!

    70. denise on February 7th, 2008 12:28 pm

      …..I will demand Joran and company to come to the US, too. It all makes me simply sick. A pretty boy like Joran should have a “fun” time in jail…..problem is, he is so narcissistic that he thinks he will never go……and maybe (unfortunately) on this account, he won’t…but, by God’s justice, he will eventually get caught doing something stupid…..he is a true, blue sociopath. GOD BLESS the Holloway family and friends. I cannot imagine the hell they have been through……..when will this stop for them???
