Scared Monkeys Protests Aruba at the St. Louis Travel Show in St. Charles, MO and a Show of Unity for Justice…for Natalee Holloway


Once again there was a travel show, this time the St Louis Travel Show STLOUIS_Travel Show2008, in St Charles, MO. Once again Scared Monkeys was present protesting Aruba and providing a show of Unity for Justice … for Natalee Holloway and all US citizens missing/murdered in foreign countries.

Concerned individuals showed at the 2008 St. Louis Travel Show to provide a voice for Natalee Holloway and remind all travelers that Aruba has still done nothing to provide … Justice for Natalee. It would appear from reports that once again the Aruban booth was a ghost town and Aruba still has this issue with that America right called “free speech”.

Listen to the audio reports from Sunny in TX

  • AUDIO UPDATE I: “ … we’ve got 2,4,6,8,10,12, 13 people out here, Fox News has been out. Aruba has already complained about us, but that’s ok …”
  • AUDIO UPDATE II: “ … We are getting fantastic comments. We are getting people stopping and talking about Natalee. We got moved, but we actually got moved to a better place. We are right at the entrance and L has her van here so we put one of the banners up where people are driving in and that is the first thing they see is, Justice for Natalee …” 
  • AUDIO UPDATE III: “ … we are inside the hall and once again the Aruba booth is unmanned. There is no one there, people are not stopping and picking up brochures …”

See more comments, pictures and updates at the Scared Monkeys Forum.










Below is the fantastic message from those at the ST Louis Travel Show by Sunny in TX. A tremendous job done by all.

American Woman Missing in Aruba
Natalee Holloway missing in Aruba since May 30, 2005.

She went on her Senior Class Trip to Aruba and never came home. Natalee could be YOU, your child, sister, niece, grandchild, cousin or best friend. Would you just forget about her if she was? Would you allow the Aruban police and legal system sweep her under the rug? Would you just forget about her and go on?

SM CnC close view

(Carlos N’ Charlies)

Natalee left a local night club with a young man who claimed to be a student from Holland, staying at the Holiday Inn…the same hotel Natalee and her group were staying.  She got into a car believing she was being taken back to her hotel…she has NOT BEEN SEEN since…

Her parents flew to Aruba and the one of the biggest injustices to an American citizen and family began.  Her parents and their friends discovered, in a few short hours, who Natalee left with and the circumstances. They provided the local police with the information…information the police should have already had but didn’t..WHY? Because they had not taken any steps to find out!! It was just a missing girl…no big deal…right!

The past 2 years and 10 months have been filled with unbelievable highs and lows for the family of Natalee Holloway….her father spent 2 weeks digging in the local landfill looking for his daughter’s body. Her mother was followed and threatened in Aruba,


(Aruba landfill search, July/Aug 2005)

…even when the main suspect in her disappearance. Joran Van der Sloot, the son of a local member of the legal establishment and acting JUDGE, states in a taped conversation with his ‘best friend’ that Natalee convulsed on the beach and  not knowing whether she was dead or ALIVE,  arranged to have her body dumped in the sea…he was not arrested……!   WHY?  If he was innocent of any wrong doing towards Natalee…why not call 911? Why not get her HELP!! WHY??


(Once suspects: Deepak Kalpoe, Satish Kalpoe & Joran Van der Sloot)

And where is this suspect now?  Is he in jail? NO!!! Not even his taped confession of being responsible for having her dumped in the sea, possibly ALIVE, was not enough for Aruba… arrest him. He walks free and Natalee Holloway is still missing.

Natalee is but one young woman…but she could be any young woman…someone YOU know….and love.

Justice for Natalee Holloway equals justice for ALL American visitors to foreign countries.

Join us on Sunday, March 9, 2008 at the St. Louis Travel Show in St. Charles Mo, any time between 11AM and 5PM for a show of Unity for Justice…for Natalee Holloway and all US citizens missing/murdered in foreign countries. Will you join hands with us and show the attending countries we WILL NOT FORGET?  We CAN protect our citizens by ensuring ALL destinations know  we will NOT allow our missing or murdered to be forgotten …we WILL STAND FOR THEM and DEMAND JUSTICE.

      It looks SPECTACULAR!

      The only other photos I’d like to see would be of the Arubans looking on aghast.

      Glory, glory, hallelujah … OUR truth goes marching on!

    2. Carpe Noctem on March 9th, 2008 9:09 pm

      Awesome work people! Keep dropping it on ‘em.

    3. walrus on March 9th, 2008 9:32 pm

      Great job!

    4. JusticeforNatalee on March 9th, 2008 9:41 pm

      Complain all you want to, Aruba. We have the right to peaceful protest in the US.

      BTW, we just happen to have a complaint about YOU, Aruba.

      And it’s far more legit than what you have to say.

      Our complaint: Aruba is denying justice to an American citizen who was killed on the island. Aruba is trying to sweep the crime under the carpet.

      SM: FYI, there is a travel show in Houston and one in Washington DC both March 29-30th (klaasend)

    5. glad2bAmerican on March 9th, 2008 9:58 pm

      GOOD JOB! Great Support efforts!

    7. Observer on March 9th, 2008 10:20 pm

      34 months now and they still haven’t given Natalee a honest investigation! Well done Aruba Govt! You chose to cover up a teenage girls murder and spent millions slandering,lying and blaming Natalee,her Family and the Media instead of the obvious criminals. We all know the Pauls friends in the Police,Prosecution and Aruban Govt sabataged and destroyed this case and we are all still waiting for a honest Investigation. No American should ever spend a dime in this country until there is Justice. The hell you continue to put this Family through will never be forgotten!

      Thank you to everyone that gave Natalee a voice at this trade show!

      Great job to those that were able to attend the travel show..
      . good report.
      .it has been almost three yrs since natalee was killed and still our voices continue to grow stronger.. united we stand..for one cause.. to see justice served.. we will fight to bring pauulus to justice .to answer for his role in master minding the coverup.. by paying people off and possibly threatening to do harm to anyone that came foward with information…
      jurine to pay for the crime he comiited against a vulnerable.. girl he must pay the price.. he took advantage of her condition.. he needs to pay.biggtime
      your punishemnt for bringing this evil into the world.. is to loose both husband and son… we show no mercy… or compassion.. we reserve that for both beth and dave holloway..

    10. MY THOUGH on March 9th, 2008 10:49 pm

      i can see why no one comes foward.. although the reward is god.. its no good if your dead .. alot of intimdation from pauulus..dont know if wimp pauulus can continue under pressure.. mr sweathog dog

    11. MY THOUGH on March 9th, 2008 10:50 pm

      i meant to say although the reward is good

    12. buster on March 9th, 2008 11:27 pm

    15. katablog on March 10th, 2008 7:46 am

      You know you’ve done a great job when the Aruba contingent complains about you!

      What? Aruba didn’t have their scantly clad girl with the feathers? Maybe someone let them know how trashy that looked.

    16. Miss-Underestimated on March 10th, 2008 7:47 am

      Great Job Sunny and all those who took the time and effort in St. Louis.

      So Aruba complained. That is wonderful, it means the protests are working. Wonderful, Wonderful work.

      You are all stellar…

    17. Jerry from Ohio on March 10th, 2008 8:03 am

      Way to go SM in St Louis .
      Just a question though why are some SM afraid to have their pic taken ? and why aren’t the pictures labeled as to who is who in the online pics ?
      I guess I really do not understand what people are afraid of, No insult or accusations but what can Aruba or the VDS really do to any of us ?
      I am just trying to understand this more .
      Hugs to all the SM that were there and those who supported them .
      Jerry from Ohio

    18. JusticeforNatalee on March 10th, 2008 8:37 am

      Great job, all of you!

    19. kayjay on March 10th, 2008 8:38 am

      To all who went to St Louis….you are what true Americans are all about..standing up for what is right with kindness and dignity..thank you for your great job.
      Another nail in the coffin of ARuba and the vanderCrooks!

    20. katablog on March 10th, 2008 8:39 am

      Jerry, just a guess: they might be like me, very not photogenic! I detest pictures of myself.

    21. mommytraveler on March 10th, 2008 8:40 am

      Thank you to all who participated – whether in person or in spirit or by making contributions. That banner says it all – money well spent by fellow monkeys.

      Made a few inquiries as to hotel rates and availability – and again, discounts everywhere and all dates open.

    22. kayjay on March 10th, 2008 8:42 am

      As for Aruba’s Travel Show Booth…what a garish, trashy looking, pathetic display…they can’t even put the tablecloth on straight…but then they don’t know the meaning of “straight” in Aruba do they?!

    23. Jerry from Ohio on March 10th, 2008 9:09 am

      OH Katablog 20
      I have watched you for some time now and a lady as
      sweet and intuitive as you would look good in a trash bag dress beauty comes not only from the outside but also from within .
      ((((((((( Katablog ))))) from Ol Jerry from Ohio

    24. txchic on March 10th, 2008 9:22 am

      i only wish the dutch would join in the boycott…

    25. ken on March 10th, 2008 10:14 am

      do you guys think now is a good time to invest in Aruba?I was thinking of buying property, however it looks like the protests may be having some impact.Should we hold off till fall or do you think its bottomed out?Any info is greatly appreciated.Cheers..

    26. Richard on March 10th, 2008 10:24 am

      Jerry from Ohio (#17) … Given the level of pathological behavior today, and the ease with which photos apparently can be downloaded from the Internet and pasted anywhere, I can well understand why people would be cautious.

      Question for the wonderful people who turned out:

      Why were you moved? Was it at the behest of Aruba? If so, what reasons were given?

      Did you see any of them lurking around?

      Anyway, great job. Remember, folks, that the central information source for this is at:

      These events aren’t free. Preparing handouts, shipping signs and banners from one place to another, hotel rooms, gas … all these cost money. Not to mention the generous donations of time.

      I’ve contributed to Texas Equusearch, to help get the Persistence back out to sea, and I’ve donated to the costs of these shows. Let’s all do this.
      Posting on blogs is fine, but it’s like preaching to the already converted.

      Let’s make sure that our message continues to be heard across the world, in mounting volume:

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

      Help make this possible. Please consider donating to help meet the costs of these efforts.

      Write to for info.

      God bless.

    27. Richard on March 10th, 2008 10:28 am

      That Aruba travel booth looks like a stage set for a perverted performance of Hansel and Gretel.

      Where are the Arubans … or don’t they dare be shown standing up for their country? Maybe they’re secretly as disgusted as we all are.

      Ken (#25) … I’d make a comment about what you’re saying, but it would be censored. It refers to an anatomical impossibility.

    28. kiltie65 on March 10th, 2008 10:28 am

      Where is Joran Van der Sloot? Must be nice to be a modern day “remittance man”. His parents pay to keep him away from them and out of the country.

    29. nctripp on March 10th, 2008 10:30 am

      Why would you want to invest in an island that
      is so corrupt?? You financially support what you invest in. Bad financial decision and worse moral decision.

    30. Richard on March 10th, 2008 10:33 am

      By the way … do any of our Texas friends here live near Houston? Stand up for Natalee! Write to for more info.

    31. rightknight on March 10th, 2008 10:35 am

      How about encouraging visitors to go to the Aruban booth and ask about Natalee’s disappearance and the subsequent investigation process (possible coverup)? Engaging Aruban representatives in a conversation about her might be revealing in terms of attitudes held by that country. Keeping Natalee’s name associated with Aruba is essential.

    32. kaye on March 10th, 2008 10:39 am

      webcam update…..Bucuti Beach – 3 people on beach, Tara Beach – 5, Radisson aruba 2 in the pool, 4 bar, 6 beach, Playa Linda – 1 in the pool.

      is this high season? yeah, right.

    33. kiltie65 on March 10th, 2008 10:41 am

      #24, I can’t understand why the Netherlands don’t demand action either. They certainly spent enough money during the search, they just don’t seem interested in promoting prosecution? I’ve always had the highest regard for the Dutch…and their immigrants contributed positively to America’s melting pot. (In fact, two of my favorite former Presidents, Teddy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, were of Dutch descent). It’s a mystery. Maybe Hans Mos is not going forward with the prosecution because he doesn’t want to send the perps up for 6 months, but wants to get all the goods on ‘em so they get 15 years? Hope so!

    34. Miss-Underestimated on March 10th, 2008 10:47 am

      25. ken

      I would wait. A good investor knows to buy low and sell high. However, even if you buy low, you may not have any real increase of value in your lifetime. Unless Aruba does the right thing and stop the cover up and proceed with the prosecution of Joran and his daddy and return Natalee to her family.

      Aruba will need to do some BIG TIME reconciliation in order to restore its value to tourists.

    35. katablog on March 10th, 2008 10:51 am

      Jerry that was nice – thank you.

      Ken – I’d wait until Chavez takes over the place. Oh but one problem – it might be under water by then.

      I think by now Aruba knows we don’t believe much of what they say but it’s a shame that they keep dishing out this pathetic trash like what Castro did with the Patrick conversations to their own people. Wonder how may people in Aruba are so closed in that this is all they hear.

    36. dave on March 10th, 2008 11:04 am

      #25 ken are you another simpleminded TROLL?

    37. brie on March 10th, 2008 11:15 am

      The monkeys that are attending the travel shows are doing a fantastic job….looks like no one is interested in going to Aruba…those that are suppose to be working in the booth aren’t even there. Crappy looking display. It’s too embarrassing for anyone to walk up to the booth after seeing the signs about Natalee and the injustice that has been done.


    38. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 11:28 am

      stupis is as stupid does..
      only in aruba

      sign on aruba’s courthouse door

    39. ldstlou on March 10th, 2008 11:34 am

      One peek at the hate site and you will know why some did not want their pics posted. They have already copied and pasted our photos and started the vile comments.
      It is incredible what they do with the information on their OWN members at the refugees, some are just worried what they will do with ours.

    40. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 11:38 am

      I just contacted the website small way to the cost .. of the posters or whatever they wish to use the money for that I send..


    41. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 11:40 am

      I meant to say richard that I want to contribute in some small way to help with the costs.. I am willing to give regularely.. its all about standing united to bring natalees remains home..

    42. nctripp on March 10th, 2008 11:43 am

      Miss-Underestimated on March 10th, 2008 10:47 am
      Ken…I would wait. A good investor knows to buy low and sell high.

      A good invester does not invest in corruption,
      drugs, mafia.
      Ken… I am surprised you made it past the basic math question to get on this board!!!

    43. Jerry from Ohio on March 10th, 2008 12:01 pm

      Big Thank you to Richard and idstlou for your answers . Hand shake and a hug , Jerry

    44. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 12:21 pm

      why is it we do the math question .. now that you mentioned it!!

    45. Miss-Underestimated on March 10th, 2008 12:40 pm

      42. It was in jest…….

    46. brie on March 10th, 2008 1:10 pm

      Anyone know the answer as to why Gabriel Leo was at the Sloots house on May 31st. It was the confrontation of the Twitty’s and the Sloot’s…..posted on Aruban Who’s Who????????????

    47. Minky from CH on March 10th, 2008 1:14 pm

      #25 Ken
      I think, that’s a great idea!
      Invest and buy whatever you can, prices are low, so you have the best time right now … don’t miss it!
      Don’t hesitate and wait till fall, the sooner the better…

      There are people in this world who would even invest their money in a sinking ship……….

      Good Luck!
      Hope my recommendation will be appreciated

    48. brie on March 10th, 2008 1:26 pm

      The Sloot’s are not welcome in Aruba….nor the Netherlands….at least that is something…. so where do we go from here??

    49. always 1 on March 10th, 2008 1:33 pm

      i think the math question is a file of some sort to see when we post and how often…..

    50. brie on March 10th, 2008 1:50 pm

      Paulus and Anita could also be sued for allowing their 17 year old son to drink and gamble underage….Paulus participated in this….along with Posner…..if that had not been allowed Natalee would still be here!!!!! Do something Hans!!!!

    51. brie on March 10th, 2008 2:10 pm

      Joran went to school for 1 day being in the Netherlands and they pay for free schooling…..he didn’t go to school, he didn’t work, he does nothing but drink and gamble….and his parents think that is OK…..

    52. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 2:26 pm

      u forgot to add..
      he smokes pot too

    53. always 1 on March 10th, 2008 3:18 pm

      you all, look at Aruba pictures may 29 2005 (webcom) pciture number 59….carlo and charlies…in the blue shirt…do you think that looks like a kalpoe brother?

    54. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 3:54 pm

      ok its

    56. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 4:33 pm

      i always wondered what the math was about.. thanks for the xplanation..

    57. misskatie on March 10th, 2008 5:25 pm

      I went to the link searched the webshots. nada .. nothing.. I GIVE UP

    58. Ken on March 10th, 2008 6:18 pm

      Thanks for the replies guys.We will be going down to AUA next month and are looking to buy a personal home.Not a condo or a time share.We should be able to get a place in the 150 range.Hopefully when the dust settles, we could make a pretty penny in 5 years.Although a corrupt place, it is a beautiful island and with retirees(dutch and american) moving to the caribbean, I believe Aruba offers a mostly safe place at reasonable rates.Sabaneta or Sabana Liber near Noord is where we want a place as Palm Beach is still too pricey.As far as Chavez goes, I dont think he has the cojones…hes been there 10 years and I doubt hell start invading anyone now!Thanks for the help!

    59. katablog on March 10th, 2008 6:22 pm

      Lighten up Monkeys, I think Ken was just joking.

      The real answer to the math question: it prevents bots from posting spam. Blogs have to use either a math question or a “type in the letters you see” Captcha to prevent bots from posting spam URLs. By answering the question, you prove you are at least human.
      SM: That is exactly correct. That is the purpose of the math question and only purpose, to keep spam out. You guys have no idea the amount of spam that gets filtered out of the comments (klaasend)

    60. always 1 on March 10th, 2008 6:34 pm

      katablog, if that is the case, then why does it record the number each i log on…..d

    61. Carpe Noctem on March 10th, 2008 6:42 pm

      Maybe Ken could spend that tidy li’l profit

      he’ll be making dredging the bottom of the sea

      & fighting off the A.L.E. while searching for

      his daughter or missing wife!


      Some people just never listen.

      so how do Joran’s friends post??? ;)

    63. nctripp on March 10th, 2008 7:15 pm

      Ken.. If you move there I just hope you do not have daughters or young lady relatives or friends. personally I think you are an Aruban trying to suggest buying there would be profitable. I would not help Aruba’s economy, even if there was money to be made.
      katablog on March 10th, 2008 6:22 pm
      Lighten up Monkeys, I think Ken was just joking.

      Katablog.. I usually pick up on it when someone is kidding.. He is serious and I have no intention of lightening up when it comes to aruba’s corruption. Investing there is the opposite of boycotting. He can invest if his conscience allows but I will speak up against it. If he is kidding he can explain that.

    64. DEB on March 10th, 2008 7:22 pm

      Very True, Carpe Noctem. Some people just could care less UNTIL something happens to them.

    65. DEB on March 10th, 2008 7:24 pm

      By the way, that empty booth looks great!!!! It should just be done away with! It’s only taking up space!

    66. DEB on March 10th, 2008 7:27 pm

      I have a question. why does it say”your domment is awaiting moderation” by my name?? anyone know?

    67. Minky from CH on March 10th, 2008 7:32 pm

      #58 Ken
      Have you already graduated?
      My advice for you: Just go tomorrow!
      Why wait till next month?
      Is a winning situation anyway.
      Your country has one Idiot less and Aruba one Idiot more!

    68. nctripp on March 10th, 2008 7:50 pm

      I think that is because it has not been published on the forum yet.
      After it is posted on the forum the
      “awaiting moderation ” will disappear

    69. Richard on March 10th, 2008 9:04 pm

      Brie (#48) … You say ‘the Sloots are not welcome in Aruba.’ This is what we are TOLD.

      But I don’t necessarily believe anything that we hear from Aruba. I certainly don’t believe this … I think it’s more news management by Aruba. If they are so concerned, we don’t see any signs of it.

      MissKate (#40) … Wonderful. All others who are really concerned about Natalee should follow suit.

      Ken (#whatever) … Get to Aruba, the sooner the better. Just don’t come back here.

    70. Bob on March 10th, 2008 9:08 pm

      i will just wait til next month as fares seem to be lower in april.despite the holloway incedent, there are like 4 murders per 100,000 ppl. In comparison, st vincent has 26,trinidad 39 and jamaica a wopping 58!apparantly now is as good a time as ever to buy.whatever profit is made will definetely not be going to the queen..time will tell.

      Hey yo, we haven’t seen those spanking new Tourism numbers for many months. Com’on, fess up, they are quite the disaster aren’t they. Spring and Summer 2007 weren’t too hot, Fall numbers fell, and so far it appears that the Winter ’07 “high season” numbers have been frozen out. The Brickel hotel rep at the NY show appeared very edgy and distracted. Well my friend, Natalee supporters are also distracted. Our attention has been diverted to making 2008 travel plans at only safe destinations.

      Americans will spend their money where it’s treated best…and that isn’t in Aruba.

    73. Bob on March 10th, 2008 9:42 pm

      The Aruba Holiday Inn is sucking wind, look at this ad for the NY-NJ Tourist Market….LOL!

      “Aruba All – Inclusive Winter/Spring Sale

      Air, 6 Days, All – Inclusive Oceanview! $999

      Your Package Includes:

      Roundtrip Airfare
      Roundtrip Transfers to/from Airport
      5 Nights Hotel Stay at the Holiday Inn Sunspree in an Oceanview room! (Upgrade to the 5* Riu Palace in a Jr Suite for only $199 more WOW!)
      All meals, all drinks, all tips and all non-motorized water sports!


      $999 – fly from JFK or Newark airports”

      They can’t give it away, how pathetic. No one wants to go there. A source reported the Holiday Inn last week was booked less than 60%. I guess people remember how Natalee Holloway was treated there……….yah think?

      Now the teachers in Aruba associated with the Simar union have walked out. Students were released an hour earlier on Friday. The unions don’t care about Oduber’s explanation that the government does not have the money.

      The Arubans know their government is corrupt…they have seen how the money has been thrown away just through the Natalee Holloway case. And they are fully aware of the cover-up.

      I think we might see a big uprising from the people of Aruba towards their government.

      @mike :i would say more like ken and ken if you know what i mean..were very happy thank you!By the way..its happening again!A British girl was murdered in Goa last week.She was only 15. It appears(alleged)she was using ecstasy or coke.apparantly she was at a bar till late. The family is also talking coverup as she supposedly drown yet there are bruises on her body.they have someone in custody but the mom said on cnn that it may be a scapegoat.i hope the police dont mess this up as well.

    79. brie on March 11th, 2008 3:29 am

      If Ken wants to buy a house in Aruba by Noord he should check out the Sloot compound maybe it’s for sale or going to be. Might buy it for a song if it has been vandalized. Then he can live on the poltergeist.

    80. mommytraveler on March 11th, 2008 4:35 am

      I got an email from American Airlines advertising airfare from Denver to Aruba for $99 each way – down from a previous quote of $699. They are getting desperate to fill those airplanes. You can’t even fly to Dallas from Denver for $99.

      That’s a great suggestion.
      Then finally, the place can be fully searched and ripped off. I’m sure they will find some of the “lost” evidence.

    82. Bob on March 11th, 2008 6:44 am

      Mommy….don’t forget the 1,000′s of emails sent to all major airlines, hotels, schools, universities, travel agency, and every other corporate websites we could think of several months ago. Then the TV broadcasts and programming in January – February of Joran’s confession. That coupled with 100% effective Travel Show Protests….and you have little to non-existant tourism for Aruba.

      Airlines are flying empty planes, hotels are less than 70% full to achieve bottom line profits, food is rotting in empty restaurants, and gold washed jewelry and colored glass gem stones are tarnishing…..just like Aruba’s reputation.

      NEVER – EVER underestimate the power of the spoken and printed word…..the Aruba BOYCOTT Phase II is spreading faster than a California wildfire.

    83. kaye on March 11th, 2008 7:03 am

      #71 ken…most people/posters do understand that there are murders in any country, even our beloved USA has it’s share, but the point is, they don’t get covered up from day one by every government official and those in the upper eichelon of society. i’ll tell you like i’ve told some posters before you…..i hope and pray that YOU sir never have a beautiful, precious daughter go missing in a foreign country and that you never have to go through the pain, frustration and heartbreak that beth and dave and the holloway family have gone through at the hands of the corupt aruban government officials and the van der sloot family. and if you do have a beautiful daughter, get down on your knees and pray to God that she is safe, healthy and alive and with you everyday!! God bless you.

    84. katablog on March 11th, 2008 7:54 am

      Well if Ken wasn’t joking he should check the price of those vacation club condos. No one can get rid of their aruba time shares so I’m sure they would welcome a low ball bid from ken. Hey ken, take two, their small.

      where did you get the info that the vandersloots are not wanted in aruba or the netherlands. and didnt i hear someone say that anita wasnt allowed to teach.. please elaborate.. just curious

    86. always 1 on March 11th, 2008 9:05 am

      have you all ever read Bushy Haired Strangers take on the night NH went missing….interesting…to Ken…bad boys bad boys whatcin going do…whatcin you do when they come for you???????

      too funny mike

    88. Frank on March 11th, 2008 9:08 am

      Ken…I belive there were some folks that purchased the Brooklyn Bridge back in the 40′s that might have some advice for you about purchasing anything in Aruba, or maybe some of those that bought beach front property in Arizona could get a good word in to you. Have a good retirement…looking over your shoulder constantly!!!

      Seriously..I have to wonder which time share or real estate company Ken represents in Aruba.

    89. brie on March 11th, 2008 9:39 am

      #85…I’ll see if I can find it for you, I read it on a blog somewhere, there are many out there…it also stated that Anita would not be teaching in the fall and they were changing the boys last name. I know Scared Monkeys posted an article that Rudy Croes was going to remove Paulus from several committees and that Joran per Rudy is persona non data…..not welcome in Aruba and that the Sloot’s should leave their house. I know Jossy had stated in an interview the feeling of the Aruban people and their knowing of the corruption and cover-up. They have had enough.

    90. misskatie on March 11th, 2008 9:50 am

      it would be greatly appreciated if you can find it and send to me
      I wonder if any of those stories are true.. as we know .. people in aruba arent known for honesty

    91. brie on March 11th, 2008 9:56 am

      #88…..I think your right, he probably does represent some type of real estate in Aruba….why would you come on here and tell us your going to buy a home in Aruba when you know how we would react.

      The planes are not going to continue to fly to Aruba without full capacity. The number of cruise ships have lessened. The gov’t will look the other way when illegal immigrants begin migrating, as many of them have already, South America will be Aruba’s target, as long as they bring money.

    92. kaye on March 11th, 2008 10:03 am

      webcam….bucuti resort….19 on the beach this morning, radisson resort 3 or 4 on the beach, playa linda resort 17 in or around the pool. high season no doubt.

    93. brie on March 11th, 2008 10:56 am

      #90…..still looking for the rest but so far you look under the article posted by Scared Monkeys dates FEb 9, 2008…Natalee Holloway: Comments from Jossy Mansur Regarding New Developments in Aruba and Joran Van der Sloot. Printed in bold red it says, Voices are now being raised to kick him and his family off the island.

    94. Ken on March 11th, 2008 10:59 am

      i dont represent a real estate firm.i do however feel that the time to buy is now(from investors standpoint)i think by next x-mas a hefty profit could be in store.

    95. katablog on March 11th, 2008 11:02 am

      #93 brie: I think those are just “rumors” to make us believe Aruba is actually reacting negative towards Paulus. The garbage that the Aruba TV station tried on Patrick tells me that Aruba is really in the same “protect the sloots” mode they’ve always been in.

      Oh yes, there may be a few on the island (like Jossy) that are totally ticked, but I’m not believing much of anything coming out of Aruba.

    96. Richard on March 11th, 2008 11:09 am

      Miss Katie and Brie … I agree with Katablog up above. Aruba from day one has manipulated the news in this case, or tried to … now we’re told that Arubans were outraged over the Joran videos.

      Well, I wrote to Jossy Mansur, saying that he should take the lead in raising money on Aruba to help pay for the quest of the Persistence. Since the crime took place on Aruba, why don’t the Arubans do something to help out? For God’s sake, it should be their FULL responsibility.

      Jossy Mansur replied to my first e-mail on the day it was sent, saying it was a great idea and that he would get into action right away.

      If anyone on Aruba has contributed, I don’t know about it. I don’t believe anything I hear from Aruba, and I don’t believe that suddenly the people of Aruba are outraged. If they are, then let them do something practical to show it.

    97. Graf on March 11th, 2008 12:32 pm


      There are plots available at a residential complex in Petronia Street, Oranjestad. It must be a good investment, since as far as I know, none of the upscale occupants have ever moved again. It was opened in the 60′s, but it is very well kept.

    98. Carpe Noctem on March 11th, 2008 1:44 pm

      Absolutely no report could do it as much justice
      as seeing it with your own eyes though!

      Nobody is going to the island of murdering, gang-raping, Natalee Holloway killing Van der sloots.


    99. kayjay on March 11th, 2008 2:32 pm

      Great idea..go for’ll probably be able to get a terrific subprime mortgage …they’ll be so happy to have you. Be sure to have a good home inspection done, particularly have them dig up the concrete to check for bodies. If you have a well on the property, be sure to have that checked as well. Paulus can give you some excellent referals for furniture companies, especially matresses. If you have kids..why not try the International school…they might be lucky enough to end up in Anita’s class…the curriculum should be very enlightening. Be sure you are a good swimmer before you go out on Croes boat…and don’t forget the mosquito spray…GOOD LUCK..send us a postcard from time to time!

    100. brie on March 11th, 2008 2:56 pm

      Why would anyone want to come here and tell us that they are going to buy a house in Aruba…how stupid. If that’s what you want to do than do it. You know the risks upfront, if that is how you choose to live then go….be sure you’ve got at least six mirrors on your car so you can try and avoid all the drug, illegal drivers, maybe sure there are bars on your windows and an abundance of locks because of all the theft, watch out walking on the streets you might get shot by a gang member, expect to be approached by the drug dealers when in public, wear a mosquito net and bug spray, also use a gas mask if you going anyway around the open landfill that’s breeding disease, do not invite your family to visit if they have children, especially if they are young women…go ahead and go to the place of your dreams, but those dreams will turn into nightmares. And don’t expect to see any American’s….

    101. kiltie65 on March 11th, 2008 3:11 pm

      Pretty sure I read on arubanboycott.blogspot a month or more ago about the International School having trouble getting kids up to par to attend college abroad and they were tightening up the curriculum…and that Anita would not be back in the fall. You could check that spot out. I’m not a computer whiz…barely can stumble through the typing. Think very highly of everyone on this blog who keeps us up to date.

    102. SS on March 11th, 2008 3:59 pm

      Hyscience is reporting that something is about to explode on One Crappy Island. They are saying that someone’s wife has provided ALE with a statement that Natalee was still alive after Beth arrived.
      SM: Yeah, that’s pure BS coming from Pittbull’s wife and even the trolls at RU don’t believe it. Not only that, this is old news and was posted at RU weeks ago (klaasend)

    103. SS on March 11th, 2008 4:09 pm

      I also contact the Holiday Inn/InterContinental corporate offices in Atlanta and the General Manager of Holiday Inn Sunspree. I suggested that they should contribute to the Persistence if for no other reason, than because Urine was in their casino illegally when he made contact with Natalee. I reminded them that employees at Sunspree were aware of Urine by name and reputation, yet they till allowed him into their casino (illegally) where he stalked unsuspecting American tourists. I have never had a response from Holiday Inn which now means that I will not be spending any of my money in a Holiday Inn anywhere.

    105. MY THOUGH on March 11th, 2008 5:56 pm

      I do wonder how much this wife was paid to spread this rumor

    106. Sweet_thang on March 11th, 2008 6:00 pm

      A little more good news on the Aruba front. A co-worker booked a trip there last August, and the deal was to include a non-stop flight to and from. She was shocked to find out that all changed just the other day, without explanation – now she has layovers to and from that OneCrappyIsland. She was livid, and said that if this stuff continues, she’ll go elsewhere on future vacations. She has been going there annually for years.

      She’s a decent person, but has basicly rationalized what happened to Natalee (she has never had children, so she’ll never quite understand). Last time in Aruba, her husband asked a cab driver about the case, and caught an earful from the guy.

      Keep up the great work SM!!!!

      BTW, I am so-o-o-o-o glad I found this website! I was so sick of the Urinator disciples on Court TV msg boards bashing Natalee and Beth every chance they had. What a bunch of pukes! I got banned from there until I learn to spell Urine’s name. Don’t hold your breath, Court TV!

      Someone should organize some form of group virtual Urinator protest there.

      Justice for Natalee!

      #97 Graff, Im not aware of any resedential plots on Petronia street.I know of some small office spaces on Petronia, the building is newer though.I will look into it thanks.Its a nice location. I wonder if people live there now?

    108. Frank on March 12th, 2008 7:56 am

      Ken….your wish to speculate on real estate in Aruba for future profit is rather sick in my opinion. Sick because the current trend downward in property values there has been brought about by the tragic and unnecessary death of a beautiful young American…. because of the cold and unfeeling rapist and murderer Van der Sloot and his friends and family…. by the corrupt government and ALE covering this crime for a “favored son”….all of this and more…brought about by the awakening of the American people and the traveling public to this horrid act and the resulting actions of those we hold responsible to find justice on that island. We in America have learned to embrace justice and right and to punish injustice and wrong.

      For you to admittedly seek future profit on this island borders on evil, in my opinion. Profit from the loss of others….profit from the loss of life is ill-gotten gain….I will pray your profits never come….that if they should arrive they will burn a hole in your black soul and bring you saddness and loss.

      Proverbs 28:6 Better is the poor who walks in integrity than he who is crooked though he be rich.

      Proverbs 28:20 A faithful man will abound with blessings, but he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.

      Too any that are offended..please forgive the Bible lesson.

      #106 sweet thang…….suggestion…..give your co-worker(s) a copy of both beth and dave’s books. maybe she will be able to “rationalize” then.

      i’ve bought a half-dozen copies and left them in places for people to read (i.e Dr. Office, dentist waiting area, auto sales waiting room, my office breakroom/lounge, OUR hometown library). people may not be as interested as some of us are but once they pick them up and they start reading they won’t be able to put it down. Just a suggestion.

      #117 misskatie…….i can only speak for myself, they are great books. i cried right along with heart broke. i honestly felt her pain and frustration. i have two daughters of my own so it really affected me. after reading both books, i could only imagine what those parents went through from the first phone call to getting the runaround and all the bulls–t from every person in charge; anyone on that rotten island who COULD do something to find natalee did absolutely NOTHING to find natalee. the sheer hell that this family has gone through at the hands of the aruban government and the van der sloot family for the past 3 years is unexcusable……BUT the only morsel of consolation will be the day that the ALE and van der sloots stand before God to answer the charges placed before them. they will not be able to lie and cover up. God already knows it all. that’s when the trap doors to hell will open wide and swallow them up! god bless natalee, beth and dave.

    122. misskatie on March 12th, 2008 2:06 pm

      I know how you feel.. I have two grown daughters and teenage grandaughters…… I cannot began to imagine what that family went through … I dont know if you remember the green river killer.. he was finaly caught after many years.. he killed many girls. I knew the parents of opal mills.. A friend of mine and her husband became friends with gary ridgeway.. (THEY STARTED AS NEIGHBORS)
      my friends husband jim worked with the killer at kenworth trucking in wa state. They had no idea .. what he was …

      I said that to say.. that I cant began to imagine how all those families felt.. the heartache and grief.. horrendous.. I read the book.. that was written after he was caught.. it was autographed and sent to me by the author.. my son in law was doing some electrical work for the author she took my daughter and son inlaw to dinner and signed the book..

      I am going to order the book by beth
      I just wished aruba wasnt so anal..
      they have weird ways dont they?
      Its hurting them in tourism.. they just dont care..
      I agree .. they will all answer .. before the lord.. more so .. joran and his .. poor .. excuse for parents..
      they dont seem to have practiced good parenting skills..

      Ken is just an Idiot, who is trying to challenge posters here!
      He likes playing games on this page.

      If you reverse his pockets, there is not even a penny coming out!

      He is not looking for any advice or recommendation, he is just a mocking Imbecile!

      I myself only answered his stupid questions to tell him hi is an Idiot.
      It looks like he did not even get it.


      # 78 Ken!
      Just to remind you.

      This page is about a missing human being in Aruba, with the name of Natalee Holloway.
      Disapeared almost 3 years ago on the Devels Island, on the map still called “Aruba”.

      Posters here are trying very hard, I repeat: very hard!! to get answers in this cover-up from day 1!!
      All this people are investing time and money to get to the bottom of this scandal!

      Nowbody, comprendes? Nowbody is interested about you as a person, nor where or what you buy.
      Nowbody cares about your investments, making money, profits, big bucks etc.!!!

      Go and buy yourself a play station, where you can spend your useless time or read some Mickey Mouse to educate yourself! Shame on you!!!

      Justice for Natalee Holloway

      Arrest the 3 sluuts and the 2 kalpos

      Boycott Aruba!!!

      he is just an attention seeker
      he is disprespecting natalie with his idiotic comments.
      we care less what he buys.. and you could be right
      hes probably just a poor slob.. with a big need for attention.. he cares less if its negative attention.. he just craves reaction..
      we are here to seek justice for natalee and to keep her story alive..
      this guy probably doesnt even have a job
      or a wife
      just a big need to be noticed..

      Actually we should ignore such Ken’s. As you said, attention seeker! But…..

      I’m following this case from day 1.
      Right away, I had a bad feeling, when I heard in the News “the son of a judge in Aruba”.
      I lived over 5 years in South America and I experienced corruption myself.

      With every day I hope, this case will be solved and Natalee will get Justice and the guilty ones will be punished. Behind bars forever!

      Then once in a while I stumble over a Imbecile like Ken and it’s hard for me to bite my tongue.

      All you people have done (and still doing every day) such a great job by investing your energy, time and money, to find out the truth about Natalee.

      This Ken is an insult to this blog, he is misusing it.
      He should move where the “pepper grows”.

      I would not be surprised, if Joran & Co. is the alias behind ‘Ken’.

      Aruba, arrest the 3 sluuuuts and the 2 kalpuuuus
      (Paulus-Daddy-Daury first, he is #1 on your list)

      Aruba: Justice for Natalee


      Only a irresponsable person would spend time and money on a Devels Island.

      just a question…..what happened to Joran’s best friend Freddy? gone underground like most of the other rodents?

    132. misskatie on March 13th, 2008 4:39 pm

      or under water compliments of pauulus vanderslut

    133. misskatie on March 13th, 2008 4:40 pm

      maybe he took him out on a boat and tossed him

    134. misskatie on March 13th, 2008 4:41 pm

      actualy has a best friend
      I didnt think he had loyalty for anyone

      #132/133 misskatie…..i was just wondering. in the beginning the 2kalpoes said, “ask freddy, freddy knows the truth”. i think that Freddy lived behind the van der scums. far too many unanswered questions……maybe we could send Durham/Chapel Hill PD down there. it took exactly one week to catch those two pieces of crap that killed UNC student eve carson. albeit with the help of a crimestoppers tip. somebody wanted that $25000 reward really bad. probably one of their homies that ratted them out. anyway, they caught them both.

      wonderful idea send durham n.c cops
      but ya know that they dont let insiders into their little clicks..on the island of aruba
      pauulus makes sure of everything..
      for some reason he has alot of pull
      one can only assume… we know hes a crook .. but to what lenth.he is a powerful man there.. under world ties.. all kinds of crime…
      I wonder if freddy has disassociated himself from the vandersloots
      but thats highly doubltful
      maybe he too has been threated
      or he is a coward hiding behind pauulus..maybe they all just go ut at night..
      kaye did you hear .. that .. anita isnt teaching and that the vandersloots were asked to leave the island.
      pauulus is having their names changed..
      I say big deal
      you cant change their faces..
      when that prostitute was caught with the govenator of new york
      I though .. well I’ll be damned now that just seems like….
      something pauulus would do and probably has done.. all those folks
      they are a creepy and evil bunch.of loosers. from mama bear to papa bear and all them lil monstrer critters they spawned..

    137. MY THOUGH on March 13th, 2008 6:33 pm

      maybe freddy is floating somehwere
      maybe they think he knows to much
      who knows kaye he could be anywhere
      dont trust pauuus though
