Beth Holloway, International Safe Travels Foundation & Offer College & High School Students Spring Breakers Safe Options … BREAK SMART


Spring Break can be the best of times … it can be the worst of times. Beth Holloway asks students to please be safe …

The International Safe Travels Foundation, the non profit organization Beth Holloway, and are jointly releasing important information to our youths in an effort to keep them safe while on vacation. With Spring Break upon us once again, high school and college students need to be more aware of the troubles they could potentially fins themselves in.

No one knows more the potential risks of their child traveling abroad on vacation than does Beth Holloway. Her daughter, Natalee Holloway, went missing in Aruba in May 2005 and has never been seen or hear from since. Beth Holloway has made it her mission in life to never have another parent have to suffer what she has endured in Natalee going missing and the continual road blocks and barriers put forth by the Aruba investigation and their legal system. Beth Holloway stresses the point to teens and college students across America … STAY SAFE WHEN TRAVELING!

PEABODY, Massachusetts, March 24 /PRNewswire/ –, a division of First Choice Student Travel, and the International Safe Travels Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Beth Holloway, the mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, have jointly released a series of steps students can take to make their travel experiences safer. This announcement follows’s 2007 launch of its BreakSmart ( campaign, which was created to encourage responsible decision-making while on Spring Break.

“With Spring Break right around the corner, stressing safety while traveling is paramount. And since Natalee Holloway’s disappearance just under three years ago, students and other young adults, as well as parents and teachers have been seeking out ways to make student travel safer – both internationally and domestically,” said Joe Bush, Managing Sales Director of First Choice Student Travel. “Our BreakSmart program, which makes available safety tips and cautionary advice for students, is one way students can arm themselves with information to help ensure a memorable and safe travel experience.” (Yahoo Biz)

      “E!” channel had beth on last night “top 20 unsolved crimes” Natalee’s case was #1.

      the 3 yr anniversary is coming up…..this is the letter/email i’ve been sending to every TV network/station I can find, national and local. if everyone would take a minute to do the same maybe they would do a special anniversary for natalee.


      The 3 year anniversary of the rape/murder/disappearance of American citizen Natalee Holloway is fast approaching (May). While most of the American news channels have done stories on this tragedy in the early days of the crime, most have let it fall by the wayside. The news media would report on this tragedy in the early stages when it was “big news” and they could boost their ratings. Now that is has died down. I feel that it is imperative that we as Americans and American news media keep Natalee’s story alive and never let it die until justice is served. she was an American citizen, one of our own. She could have been anyone’s daughter, even one of my own two daughter; or YOURS. I can only imagine the grief and frustration, let alone the heart break,that both Beth and Dave Holloway have had to endure. Most of all the frustration of not knowing what really happened to their daughter and the Aruban government covering up and even destroying vital information that was pertinent to solving this crime. Even a confession by the prime suspect did not make the Aruban government move forward on the case. Too many lies and unanswered questions still remain. Where is Natalee? We need the answer. This is where the news media’s responsibility comes into play.

      Please consider doing a 3 year anniversary program in May with a prime time news special, not just for Natalee but for everyone who has a daughter who could at any time be in the same situation that Natalee was.”

      Go Beth! Natalee would be so proud!!

    3. Miss-Underestimated on March 25th, 2008 11:34 am

      Beth is doing a fantastic job. Now there is a place where students and parents can go for information and precautions while traveling outside the USA.

      I’d like to add, no human being should go to Aruba, even the innocent locals should leave, the island festers with corruption.

    4. misskatie on March 25th, 2008 12:41 pm

      I agree in the beginning greta was all gunho with this case… mor media ratings.. nancy grace also… now you seldom hear anything from them.. gretas blogs dont say anything about updates either..

    5. kaye on March 25th, 2008 12:56 pm

      misskatie……exactly my point that we posters who do care and try to keep the case alive should invest in a few stamps, a few emails and a little bit of time and send a request to each of the networks to keep it alive untill justice is served. (or untill the whole island sinks into the ocean). i’m hoping Greta will pick the story up again especially now since ATA have threatened to sue!! i think greta’s exact words were “bring it on!”. I hope she will, as well as geraldo, o’reilly, 20/20, dateline,larry king, diane sawyer, nancy grace, kimberly guilfoyle, all of the big guns.

      does anyone know the status of Equsearch?

    6. Libby on March 25th, 2008 1:42 pm

      #5 Kaye, I heard Equusearch packed up and went home because they ran out of money. I wish there were some way to keep them there…especially since they saw a lot of targets that need to be looked at on the ocean floor.

      Aruba sucks. I hate that place. I tell everyone I see too.

      Good idea about sending letters to the media. We need to keep Natalee in the spotlight until she gets justice. Sad thing is, the Aruban government will never give her justice. They don’t care what happens to the good people of Aruba so long as their drug lords can still operate, so long as judges and their sons can still rape and murder tourists, so long as they can human traffic women and children etc.

      Boycott Aruba till hell freezes over.

    7. misskatie on March 25th, 2008 2:49 pm

      greta lost alot of credibility with me when she had joran on her show….he some how convinced her that he was innocent … he fooled her like many others.he foooled.. after going to aruba with beth and seeing the attiudes of the three boys she still believed joran.she spoke with pauulus and anita and was convinced that joran did kill natalee with the help of the kalpoe brothers.than she has joran on her show and suddenly he convinces her he is innocent…. how lame is that… she turned her back on beth… I think… than later when she heard his confession she said.. she was fooled… and felt like a fool… it angered her…. it was to late..

      Luv ya, Beth. Keep rockin’ ‘em. I don’t know how u
      keep going. However, it gives a lot of people strength & inspiration. Just thought u
      should know.

      That applies to Nat’s entire family, as well!

    10. Carpe on March 25th, 2008 4:06 pm

      Hi Satish & Angela! :lol:


    11. Jean on March 25th, 2008 4:36 pm

      Has anyone heard? Are Beth and John Ramsey still together? They were an item some months back, I heard, well after she and Jug divorced.

    12. JusticeforNatalee on March 25th, 2008 5:08 pm

      Well, don’t travel to Aruba and you have already made one step in the right direction.

    13. brie on March 25th, 2008 5:17 pm

      Carpe….11….that is too funny!!!

    14. benh on March 25th, 2008 5:21 pm

      Has any one heard anything about the woman who went missing from a island vacation with her husband about 2 months ago.I sa it mentioned here but have not seen anything else on it.

    15. brie on March 25th, 2008 5:24 pm

      Spring break….looks like Amigoe hasn’t posted anything in English since March 19th….guess they aren’t telling us wants going on over there….

    16. misskatie on March 25th, 2008 5:30 pm

      I agree but I have my doubts about greta and the other T.V stations that in the begining were gunho in keeping the story alive…. than .. joran appears on her show… she suddenly takes the idea that perhaps he is not guilty… he fooled her for sometime.didnt he? wasnt. until the taped confession.that. she than changed her tune…
      in the begining when she covered the story in aruba… and after being at the vandersloots with beth talking to them…AND AND .. AND .. even after all that she had seen and heard in aruba… joran was still able to make her a believer…this must of been a slap in the face for beth…at greta wire there is hardly any mention of natalee or the case….I am led to believe that it is all about ratings and money with them…. on greta wire they have silly things like pictures of puppies and other things that I feel are less important as to keep natalees story alive..
      perhaps its just me.. but I cant help but feel they dont care like scared monkeys does …this is where I have seen the most loyalty to beth.. is it me or does anyone else feel the same??

    17. brie on March 25th, 2008 5:44 pm

      Is Joran going to be stalking in the Netherlands?

      Are the pimps in Aruba going to be out in full force…..has Freddy got his camera loaded….so disgusting….?

      How they managed to get away it all is truly unbelievable…thank God Natalee’s family was able to survive it all…

    18. kiltie65 on March 25th, 2008 6:34 pm

      Joran’s “hell is just beginning”. That is Beth’s quote. For Joran, who lived the “good life” at a sinfully young age…wine, women, gambling, money, parents doting on him, having to hide out far from Aruba in fear for his life from vigilante justice, must be somewhat similar to serving a jail term.

    19. brie on March 25th, 2008 8:09 pm

      Just looked at the floor plan for the Houston Travel Show….Aruba is in the back and there is no one in the booth across from them. Who wants to look over and watch people get their eyes poked out by all the junk the dancing feathers wear…..

      I doubt if Aruba Tourism is welcome in Texas. People there have probably seen a great deal thru the media and read a great deal in the papers about Natalee via TES. I can’t wait to see and hear about this travel show.

    20. Ray on March 25th, 2008 8:41 pm

      I want you to know that you and Natalee remain in my thoughts and prayers always. May God bring the anwsers we seek.


    21. misskatie on March 25th, 2008 8:44 pm

      me tooo hope that they are not sucessful there…. when exactly is the travel show?

    22. brie on March 25th, 2008 9:04 pm

      The Greater Houston Travel Show is at the George R Brown Convention Center, Houston Tx. March 29 & 30. Show hours 11:AM – 4:00PM

    23. Ray on March 25th, 2008 9:08 pm

      Young women who travel to Aruba should keep in mind that there are still two sloot boys walking around the island and Dont forget about the pimps. Im sure that bottle labeled FOR LADIES ONLY IS STILL AT C&C SOMEWHERE.
      If you are not worried about your safety,then think about what your death will do to your parents and family and friends.


    24. Vicki on March 26th, 2008 4:44 am

      GO BETH, what an inspiration,what a classy lady…I stand in AWE of her. God Bless You Beth..We support you 100 percent.
      BE A VOICE FOR NATALEE IN HOUSTON. Its not to late. We have quite a few ppl going this weekend. YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE. Go for a few hours…Just GO….and if you cant go, then be sure to remember the ones that are out there and STOP and say a prayer for them…

    25. Richard on March 26th, 2008 5:40 am

      Benh (#14) … I think you’re referring to the American woman who vanished on Curacao soon after being seen at the casino. I haven’t seen anything about the case since then; will post it if I do.

      Misskatie (#16) … I don’t think Greta vS or ANY of the big media ever gave much of a damn about Natalee, except as a story and as a way to boost ratings. I’m sure that they had at least the normal degree of human sympathy for Beth and Dave (we NEVER seem to hear from Dave Holloway anymore), but the saga on Aruba to them was just … a story.

      And that’s what it will remain to them.

      We have a chance to keep it in the media, and to make a real contribution. Show up in Houston; take the lead in Washington DC (I believe Aruba Tourism Authority will have a presence at a travel show there this weekend as well); keep in touch with Vicki at

      It’s not “just” Natalee now, it’s basic justice for her, for her family, and for all other Americans. The world doesn’t seem to be getting any safer; let’s demand justice where we can.

      Let’s put Aruba on notice that its economy, which is so heavily dependent on American tourism, means nothing to us … whereas the safety of Americans abroad means everything.

      Aruba has broken the social contract of tourism; we owe Aruba NOTHING. Except the back of our hand.

      Please consider making a personal effort to attend protests. If you can’t, please consider supporting those who do take the time to be heard.

      If WE don’t do it, who will?

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

    26. Richard on March 26th, 2008 5:46 am

      Remember, folks, for many people attending these protests involves an investment, not only of time and dedication, but also of gas money, hotel bills and extra meals out.

      For those who prepare handouts, signs, clothing and tote bags, as well as shipping them … none of this comes free.

      Since the first protest in Boston just about a year ago, determination that Aruba shall be held to account in Natalee’s disappearance has never flagged. But none of this comes for free.

      Please contact Vicki at if you wish to support the movement. Aruba has the power of taxation and other government revenues to back its tourism drive; what we have is the concern and commitment of Monkeys and others.

      So far, we have had an impact. Nelson Oduber, prime minister of Aruba, told Dutch TV last month that Aruba has lost tens of millions of tourism dollars because of the Natalee Holloway case.

      We are determined to press forward. Please support those people on the front lines.

    27. molly in houston on March 26th, 2008 9:15 am

      I am very excited to be able to go to the trade show in Houston. It is good to be able to do something tangible for Natalee and for other missing girls. God wants people to stand up for what is right. I am thankful that we live in the area and don’t have to get a hotel room. Hotels are not cheap in Houston, so Richard is right- it is an investment for those who are from out of town. Praise God for all that is being done to stop the sex trade and violation of young girls. It is His will that we stand for those who have been victimized. Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Stand for what is right.

      God bless the Holloway/Twitty families. God bless SM.

      boycott aruba

      I just mailed vicky a check.. and would be more than happy to send a check to help with every travel show.. every little bit counts…every little bit adds up to more when everyone puts somethingthing into the kettle… I may say that I just got my copy of beths book.. and whomever made the comment to me that once you start reading the book you cant put it down..and thats so true…. it brings to life the events of beths journey into the search for natalee… a very strong woman and determined with so much tenacity.. god bless you beth… in her book she mentioned red and scared monkeys… how neat … she thanked scared monkeys for their support…may god give her final closure one day when and if the body is recovered… and more so may the people that took part in her death.. stand accountable for their trangressions…… the more I hear about pauulus the more I get this weird strange feeling that theres more to his connection with the shadiest of shady people… he thinks he is home free.. that will never happen… never…. just wait and see…

    29. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 9:24 am

      and the loss of millions more as time goes on and the word gets around…

    30. JusticeforNatalee on March 26th, 2008 9:46 am

      When Beth’s book is mass-marketed as a paperback, info about this travesty of justice will get out bigtime.

    31. brie on March 26th, 2008 9:57 am

      Beth is certainly quite a gal….a classy lady with dedication, hope and determination to help save our children from the evils that lurk the world…I’m sure she has already saved young women from the dangers of unsafe travel….

      As for Joran, he is either in a mental institution or hiding out with his uncle. If he is hiding someone will eventually spot him. When your that tall and where a size 14 shoe, not difficult to go unnoticed.

      And Hans Mos, why isn’t he holding people responsible for the destruction and altering of certain documents?

    32. brie on March 26th, 2008 10:13 am

      Now Aruba has still another problem, the Portuguese man-of -war are washing up on shore…a special type of jelly fish of which the upper body consists of a purple balloon that can grow to approximately 15 centimeters. The underlying tentacles can become meters long and can paralyze an unsuspecting swimmer in such a way that he/she can drown.

      So now you have to stay out of water….Natalee is sending messages from the sea….

      If you want to see a picture of this…I found it in Amigoe and it’s really strange looking.

    33. Vicki on March 26th, 2008 10:52 am

      Richard, Molly, Misskatie, Thank you all…I am just a tool to be used for the best. Each and everyone of us monkeys are special…Thank you all for making these protests possible,by your prayers, time love and donations. WE ARE A TEAM and may God bless all of us. BIG THANKS TO RED AND KLAAS AND DANA for giving us an avenue in which to stay informed and to show all what we are about. Justice for Natalee.

    34. kayjay on March 26th, 2008 10:53 am

      #32 Very interesting post…..anyone here like to chip in for new bathing suits for Anita and Paulus?! I’ve heard that the Man Of War are very attracted to anything that smells bad, so they will be a long time floating around Aruban shores!

    35. kaye on March 26th, 2008 11:05 am

      this is the response i got when i posted on gretawire yesterday. crom “CheriMc” . harsh words.

      CheriMc says>>> yawn…there were 93 murders in Birmingham last year, 40 unsolved…in a city with only 2x the population of safe little Aruba. Just think IF the Boca Police and Simon Mall Town Center in Boca had let the people in this area know a killer was out there, Nancy and her 7 year old daughter might not have been murdered in December?


      SM: Why on earth would you bring that garbage here? (klaasend)

    36. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 11:05 am

      when I said I hope they are not sucessful there.. at the travel shows.. I meant aruba.. I hope aruba isnt sucessful

    37. Richard on March 26th, 2008 12:02 pm

      Time and again, this inane argument about crime in America vs. ‘safe’ Aruba is brought up.

      Nobody has ever disputed that there is far too much crime in the U.S. We all wish that it were not the case, but it is.

      Has our government denied it?

      Has our government tried to cover it up?

      Has our government blamed the victims, or their families?

      No? Aruba has done all of these … and continues to do so.

      Last I knew, people were continuing to flock to this country in search of a better life. That hope springs eternal, and may it always do so.

      So, Aruba, if you’re so safe (which we all know to be a lie) … do what we’re asking. It’s not complex. Give us answers in Natalee’s case. Prosecute those involved, sentence them, see that the sentences are served, and do so without fear or favor.

      In other words, give us justice. That simple.

      So why can’t you do it?

    38. brie on March 26th, 2008 12:04 pm

      #34…Hey yeah! Count me in..let’s put ‘em in the water…..pronto!

      These fish are carried through the waters by high winds and the winds blow strong on Aruba non-stop. The fish were washed ashore by the California Light House where we think the boat took Natalee out to sea….

    39. kaye on March 26th, 2008 12:04 pm

      so sorry klassend. never in a million years did i mean to offend anyone. i was so taken back and shocked by the harshness and uncaring attitude of the poster on GretaWire that i thought i would share it with sm posters so they could see what kind of negative stuff is out there. i certainly do not agree with the posters words. in fact, i was sickened by them. i could not believe there are actually people that uncaring out there. i did not share it to spread the garbage, just FYI. i am and have been a faithful follower of natalees case from day one.i’ve cried right along with dave/beth for the past three years! i have done my little part in donations,display the bumper stickers, bought the books,the t-shirts, am travelling to washington dc in june to join the boycott. if i can do more i will to keep this case alive. pardon me if I offended you or anyone else on this site.
      SM: I know you didn’t agree with what that person wrote and I know you didn’t mean any harm. I see posts like that all the time and have for the last 30 + months. I don’t allow them to be posted at SM. No harm done. (klaasend)

    40. brie on March 26th, 2008 12:20 pm

      Correction…Amigoe said the Portguese Man-of-War is a jelly-fish but it is not…after researching…it is a siphonophore, an animal made up of a colony of organisms working together.

      Best stay off walking the beaches at night in Aruba…even dead man-of-wars washed up on shore can deliver a sting…maybe Anita and Paulus could take a walk on the beach some night….

    41. dennisintn on March 26th, 2008 12:30 pm

      #37, richard, you’re totally correct.

    42. brie on March 26th, 2008 2:45 pm

      Maybe Dana could talk with Jossy so we can find out what’s going on in Aruba….are the Sloot’s still living in their house, how are the people reacting to them, is Anita still teaching school, any further talks on the investigation, what’s going on with the strike, etc. Would be nice to have an update.

    43. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 2:54 pm

      your so welcomed … its neat what you are doing.. I am happy to be able to contribute in some small way and will continue to do so until we get results…

    44. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 2:58 pm

      I will help out with swim suits also kaye… let’s not forget the corn flake eating official… with his pitiful self… and that woman statten I think is her name she insulted beth.. in the begining when beth was sitting out side in the hot sun while waiting for their asses to talk to her.. she was told she was not allowed to sit outside… the school masters that lied for joran and his miserable parents… feed pauulus first… than start with the mama and son and lets not forget the kalpoes…and their mom…and whom ever else lied and covered up

    45. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 3:33 pm

      lol brie and possible they can run into a fish or two a sting for two…lmao

    46. Carpe on March 26th, 2008 3:38 pm

      I’m really likin’ Brie’s idea
      of sentencing Paul & Anita to
      walk the Aruba beaches at night. They
      would need to chain his cellphone
      to his neck though. LOL

      Paul-diddy keeps gettin’ that

    47. Carpe on March 26th, 2008 3:41 pm

      #14 benh

      I think I missed that story. Which island
      was it that she went missing?

      Is she still?

    48. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 4:41 pm

      the first one with anita and the chinese guy upside down.. make me allmost pee my pants.. sitting in my office trying to hold a straight face… as I was looking at it tooooo funny….

    49. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 4:42 pm

      yes that lady is still missing .. she was at the casino by herself .. her husband stayed back at the hotel cant recall the island though…

    50. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 5:21 pm

      I know it realy bothered me that they just used the story for ratings.. greta proved her loyalty when she chose to believe joran after having him on her show once.. nothings ever mentioned on greta wire about natalee anymore…. just silly b.s about some unimportant things … open thread she calls it…I dont go there anymore… I come here in hopes that every effort made by everyone here at scared monkeys will result in getting justice for natalee and beth and all other all family members

    51. misskatie on March 26th, 2008 5:23 pm

      I am very interested in knowing what the sloots are doing… good idea… maybe klaaasend can send this request on to red…. I dont know how they do things here yet…but alot of us have alot of what if’s

    52. brie on March 26th, 2008 6:09 pm

      The answer to the question of the missing women is..Leta Lynn Cordes disappeared from St. Maarten, another Dutch island. She is a US citizen and she and her husband own a home there. There is controversy as to whether she actually made to the casino or not. Walking down a lonely dark road at night….perhaps it all happened before or after….she may have won money at the casino and someone was watching….people like island atmosphere and forget about the danger of those waiting…another shame!!! Sometimes we forget about all the bad people that want to do us harm…simply because we are not like that!!!

    53. brie on March 26th, 2008 6:59 pm

      I think Beth works with Greta looking for all the avenues and has been more than fair…but it always comes back to Joran…now it’s time for Greta to highlight the doings of Joran….let’s here more Greta…do something with your media and help Beth with the prosecution of Joran….

    54. brie on March 26th, 2008 7:04 pm

      Greta has the power to keep the story of Natalee alive….why doesn’t she…Beth has worked very closely with Greta…come on and bring the news…go find Joran…!!!!

      from what I read so far in beth’s book. It tells of the seedy side of town… where the crack addicts live… they are provided vacant bldgs with flags over the aruban govt… The addicts rob the tourist people they drug them and take all their money and ATM OR DEBIT cards and discard the person on the beach like garbage.. once their accounts are depleted… tourists go to the islands innocently… they get caught up in the , fantasy and the exotic looks of the island and atmosphere.. not realizing that danger lurks there… more so because of the addicts who are willing to do anything to finance their addiction. people stalked and preyed upon….it doesnt appeal to me to take such a risk … but anyways many women and children go missing in the caribbean and are probably victims of human trafficking… some murdered.. for the same of killing…like joran and his father and the two ugly dark kalpoes…I am begining to see beths ordeal come to life right before my eyes as I read on about all she had to deal with in a foreign country that had no regard for americans.. and yet they welcome the tourists money like greedy animals that they are…I hope that no more high school trips will ever be allowed to go there or to any other island… they can thank pauulus for all the loss in money….. he was mean and hateful with beth.. how it infuriates me to see how they treated her and her family on the island.. they are a bunch of savages…heartless… inhumane … animals….God hear our prayers…. please bring justice for natalee….. we need you to intervene and bring peace to the holloways…

      Carpe, I thought that story would be around a while but its gone now.We need to get another boycott aruba petion and send it to them, on scared monkeys front page ,natalees case has been quite to long need to stoke the flames

    57. benh on March 26th, 2008 7:24 pm

      Read some where , that the person who made the Aruba Bay video was discovered but i never heard who it was any one know.

    58. brie on March 26th, 2008 7:46 pm

      That is probably why JACOBS ASKED If NATALEE HAD A CREDIT CARD..looking for a means of funds…and why ask Dave…how much money do you have!!!If we find she had credit card we will use it…crooks and thieves!!!!

    59. brie on March 26th, 2008 7:51 pm

      This crap has been going on for years…crack houses…people being drugged in the bars..only until Natalee’s case came about did we learn what is happening on Aruba!!!! Your tourism has been exposed!!!!

    60. Ray on March 26th, 2008 11:53 pm

      I can not find one good thing to say about ARUBA. Aruba is a PIRATES DEN IF THERE EVER WAS ONE. In the dictionary beside the term PIRATES DEN ,SHOULD be a picture of ARUBA.


    61. brie on March 27th, 2008 6:59 am

      Not only does Carlos & Charlie’s drug women they drug men too, Jacobs said to Dave, go there and have a beer but be careful they put stuff in your drinks….this came from an narcotics investigator that does nothing about what is happening….

    62. brie on March 27th, 2008 7:01 am

      Things seem to be a little quiet these days….we haven’t heard anymore about Beth’s civil lawsuit, or the Kalpoes lawsuit, or Daury’s lawsuit against Joran….what’s up?

    63. kaye on March 27th, 2008 7:17 am

      to those of you who commented on my #35 posting that was edited by klassend(and rightfully so)that was the 1st time i had ever been to GretaWire blog. the response by the poster CheriMc was so harsh and mean and i was so taken aback by the negativity. i’m not naive by no means. i’m a 55 yr old grandmother. i have two beautiful daughters and a most precious little redheaded grandson. i know there is cruelty and meaness in the world. i just didn’t think that in this case (natalee’s case) that a person would be so heartless and mean with their comments. i know this is america and we have freedom of speech ,but to be so cruel….i was a little shocked. since then i have looked at other blogs out there and whoever “CheriMc” is has posted on other blogs things that are just as harsh. i won’t be going back to gretawire. there was not much support for the cause that people have here. i wonder, if CheriMc, or others who post such negative remarks had a child of their own who suffered the same fate as natalee and , as parents, suffered the worst nightmare a parent can face, heartbreak, pain, fear, terror, I wonder would they be as harsh and so quick to offer such mean and uncaring remarks. i’m ever hopeful that all of our prayers will be answered one day. so i’ll stay right here with posters who share a common bond and keep the case alive till justice is served.
      also, off the subject, in the back of Dave’s book are “shango’s riddles”. i’ve read them at least a dozen times trying to make some sense of them. i have an idea of who “I” think Shango is……i’m curious to see what others think.

      Shangos riddles, I believe are from a blog called Free Republic written by someone who would be like a mix between Richard and Carpe, brillent but dark……

    68. always 1 on March 27th, 2008 8:50 am

      the jest of the riddles is Joran took NH for his own prize, but others, darker, meaner, took her to a RAVE and killer her…they say Joran was just used and the Cowboys (us) are not smart enough to figure it out….someone correct me if Im wrong…..

    69. misskatie on March 27th, 2008 9:09 am

      I started out going to gretawire but stumbled upon scared monkeys and remained here.. there are no updates at greta wire.
      I have emailed her and posted there to ask by we get no updates… no responses.. instead they post silly stuff that they fell is more important.. I disagree… I also will not go there… its a ratings thing with some of these folks…the story dies and they all scatter like cockroaches.. a little bit of info comes across like when the tapes came out about jorans confession.. they suddenly are interested… for the ratings… but there was nothing on her blog after the show or before… I read the book to its entire in one day… <<>> I felt her pain.. it was the most saddest and heartbreaking true story I have ever read… the treatment from the aruban govt and other officials on the island angered me…an island controlled by mob crime…the perfect place to go live … you just give a cut to your govt and they will protect you.. it makes me more determined to seek justice for natalee… the book is incredible…. if you dont have please please read it and pass the word around… GOD BLESS YOU BETH

      Kaye (#63), Don’t let it get to you. There are mentally impaired people everywhere, and many of them are attracted to the Internet precisely because they have the chance to spew BS and not to be held accountable for their words.

      In the last analysis, what really matters is not our opining, but what we DO to seek justice. There is a protest in Houston this weekend; let’s keep an eye on it and give what help we can.

      after reading beth’s book and some of dave’s excerpts from his book … I am more inclined to believe that officials in Aruba are realy dysfunctional stipid and truly do not know what they are doing.. they dont deal with crime they just ignore it..they want money for their services….they are well aware of the drugs at places like carlos and charlies and the drug lords on the island.have free reign….ARUBA does not want to deal with it… they fear evil powers stronger than hurt them…if they dont comply…. a big time criminal..a weasel of a man… SO boycotting that island has to be put on high priority which has been done by scared monkeys….. we need to continue public awareness. people traveling to these islands do not know the dangers and risks… they are dreaming of a place exotic and tropical but its decieving…. dangerous…. no law and order… the travel show boycotts are needed more than ever to continue… I will help out financialy all I can to help spread the word…. boycott aruba because it is dangerous…. the ARUBAN police dont care and will not look for anyone missing..they are ignorant and incompetent…. the laughing stock of the world…. beths .told of when she and greta went to pauulus house ..they told of how his ( PAULUS) body language was so noticeable.. he was shaking.. sweatting profusely and ovious he was involved..and .the way anita talked about her son and his problems.. sickened me..they said he was seeing a shrink for his bad behaviour this is when they should of taken responsibility and come forth with the truth…. oh my god the damage they have done to beth … dave…and her assured …something will happen to them… bad karma.. is not something you get for being good to people .no . its something you get for evil actions.. that you do… we are responsible as parents to teach our children from a young age to be good and moral and honest… they did not teach this to their son… evidenced by pauulus temper outrages… jorans.. arrogant attitude and anita’ denial that sporter was capable of murder… .

      Boy, Dennis sure has been quiet lately! Did he go back to his main love, installing air conditioners?

      I know that boy didn’t lug around those AC’s all by himself!

      He’d fall over from cardiac arrest after carrying

      He decided to find a new line work because farsighted

      everyone is so nice here except for the occasional troll…..
      #72…jonny…i might be wrong but i think misskatie may have meant dark/ugly as in “a dark ugly side of personality”. that’s how I took it.

      i know this particular blog was/is about Beth’s continuing to spread the word about international safe travels and i think she is one of the strongest, most admirable women that I have never met except through the news media.
      FYI…..if you have time….it’s rather long but
      i ran up on an intersting article on the KPA website if you click on “news” on the lefthand side and scroll down to the story titled “Arubaans Offensulin zaak-holloway” you will have to switch over to another page to google to copy/paste it in to translate from dutch to english. it’s a little hard to follow even then but it goes on to tell (and this is aruban police news) how “joran-of-the-ditch” abused little girls from early on against their will and how Joran, Deepak and Satish often picked up little girls, doped them and had sex. This was known by the aruban police. It’s disgusting the things you find along the way as you read different articles but this was a police news report.

    89. Bob on March 27th, 2008 9:04 pm

      Somehow I missed the latest examination results for Joran’s confession that was posted last week by Dr.Andrew Hodges on his website: Forensic Thoughtprints. His work and conclusions are amazing:

      “March 17, 2008
      Date Rape Drug in Holloway Case Not GHB but Ecstasy—It’s the Plan, Stupid

      After examining the overt confession secretly recorded in Holland in which Joran reported that Natalee suddenly experienced a seizure and expired, many commentators have correctly speculated that she had been drugged prior to being sexually assaulted. Most commonly, experts have speculated that GHB was used since it has been reported to lead to seizures.

      In a feature story on February 15, 2007 entitled “Was Natalee Holloway Drugged?” ABC News quoted one expert who said, “If you gave me a choice based on [van der Sloot’s description of the convulsions], alcohol would be lowest on the list and GHB the highest”—this from Paul Doering, distinguished service professor of pharmacy practice at the University of Florida’s College of Pharmacy. Other experts variously noted that the supposed seizure leading to Holloway’s death was compatible with GHB or more distantly alcohol poisoning.

      Once again the media makes the same mistake Aruban investigators have repeatedly made which is to take literally everything Joran said—even though experienced investigators know perpetrators rarely confess to the whole truth. Add to this the fact that Joran’s apparent confession was filled with lies (e.g. the supposed boat driver, Daury, wasn’t on the island, nor did he own a boat, nor was he an exceptionally intimate friend of Joran’s). Not only that, but the apparent confession was largely favorable to Joran himself in the sense that he described “completely voluntary sex” and a “totally accidental death.”

      Contrast this with the truth of the matter—a brutal gang rape took place which led to Natalee’s aspiration death caused by choking her after drugging her. Those events were revealed in my forensic profile of hidden confessions between the lines of Deepak’s crucial emails to a surrogate grandmother, all three suspects’ police interviews and Joran’s book. The same scenario is the one thought most likely by many familiar with the case including Dave Holloway and the Birmingham entourage which arrived in Aruba with Beth and Jug Twitty on the first night after Natalee went missing and who stood face to face with Joran, Deepak and Paulus. Unquestionably those most closely involved in the case from the beginning have long suspected a group sexual assault involving both Joran and the Kalpoe brothers—who were diligently cleaning Deepak’s Honda early the next morning while trying to hide from observant neighbors. And we can’t forget the first story which the three suspects tried to spin in which they all three dropped her off at the Holiday Inn. That’s clearly a lie but note the secret truth contained within it: indeed all three guys were with Natalee all the way to the bitter end.

      Thinking logically as investigators, we can see there are convincing reasons why the three boys would not drug Natalee with a “knock-out” drug such as GHB. Typically, GHB (Gamma Hydroxyl Butyrate) renders the victim unconscious for several hours before she typically wakes up the next morning trying to recall the previous night’s events. To quickly accomplish their goal, the three suspects wanted not an unconscious Natalee on their hands but a “willing” victim plied with alcohol and an aphrodisiac drug which left her cooperative but completely conscious. Do you believe the three suspects planned to have an unconscious victim on their hands, a comatose girl who they would then have to roll out of the car at the Holiday Inn lobby while they sped off into the night?

      Such a scene would be totally inconsistent with Joran’s previously successful method described in police interviews in which, prior to a sexual seduction, he reportedly spiked a girl’s drink with a drug which made her lips tingle. And it wasn’t consistent with his m.o. for “last night of vacation” pick-ups of tourist girls who were eager for one final taste of freedom before returning home to the real world. Such a scene would also be inconsistent with Deepak popping in a porno video at a crucial point during Natalee’s ride around the island with the three boys—something she objected to strongly according to police interviews. Obviously, not only was Natalee quite conscious during the ride but she was resisting implied overtures to engage in group sex.

      Yet Natalee’s behavior—both bad judgment and a euphoric mood as she giddily called out to friends from the backseat of Deepak’s Honda after leaving Carlos’n Charlie’s—suggested she had been drugged with something which left her fully conscious but somewhat impaired. Consider the known facts that Ecstasy use is extremely common in Aruba and it often produces, in combination with alcohol, an almost irresistible aphrodisiac effect. Those factors make Ecstasy (Methylenedioxy-N-Methylamphetamine, a.k.a. MDMA) a much more likely possibility. All this before we examine Deepak’s detailed thoughtprint profile in his extensive email to his surrogate American grandmother, Betty, some five days after Natalee’s disappearance (see my book, “Into The Deep—The Hidden Confession of Natalee’s Killer”). Decoding that email, Deepak not only confessed that the boys carried out a clear plan of putting “a li’l something” in Natalee’s drink, but specifically identified that drug as Ecstasy. (Note that at key points in his story when describing Natalee having a drink with Joran, Deepak repeatedly referenced “etc.etc.” suggesting “e-t-c” or “ex-t-c”—ecstasy.) For the record, well informed sources have reported Joran frequently used Ecstasy.

      Certainly with Joran reporting a sudden death in a young and otherwise healthy Natalee, a suspected drugging was a good deduction by observers—but concluding it was GHB was the wrong drug, wrong place. As noted, the thoughtprint profile of Deepak’s email particularly revealed the boys had carefully planned the assault from Deepak’s suggested timeline, leaving Carlos’n Charlie’s at 1:15 and arriving at their secret “side of the road” destination at 1:30 a.m. where Deepak made Natalee the offer of voluntary group sex beginning with his porno video.

      The profile went on to show that Natalee strongly resisted and fought like a tiger while the boys then gang raped her. (Remember Joran reported at one point Natalee had vociferously told him not to touch her, even pushing him away.) In the process the boys carried out their well-planned attack by stripping Natalee so as not to send her home with torn clothes and using condoms to prevent leaving evidence of the assault. Deepak revealed this when reporting sexual contact between Joran and Natalee in his car’s backseat. He noted, “his [Joran’s] hands etc was in her blouse but nothing nude or against Natalee’s will.” His completely unnecessary and overt denial of such important details clues us in to exactly what took place. (For the record, a detailed denial of what did not happen is a classic way perpetrators reveal the truth. Also for the record, Deepak suggested between the lines of his email that Natalee suddenly and unexpectedly died at 2 a.m., the exact time Joran mentioned in his secretly recorded confession.) Obviously, the three assailants were hoping that following the well-planned gang rape Natalee would return home the next day, completely embarrassed and not wanting to face a public hearing.

      There is one last important fact to suggest Ecstasy not GHB was the “drug du jour.” Ecstasy combined with excessive alcohol, a noose around your neck and the emotionality of a horrific gang rape predisposes the victim to vomiting. Recall, too, early in the three suspects’ stories Joran noted how “paranoid” Deepak was about Natalee possibly throwing up in his car—something the media has long since forgotten. Interestingly, in its story ABC did quote another expert (Paul Kolecki, of the emergency medicine department at ThomasJeffersonUniversity’s JeffersonMedicalCollege) who pointed out that “other drugs like cocaine or Ecstasy could cause convulsions when mixed with too much alcohol.”

      Stay tuned for a follow-up article in which we will see that Deepak’s profile fits remarkably well with a type of seizure leading to Natalee’s death—but not the specific type Joran pictured. Once again media experts make the continual mistake of taking Joran too literally instead of reading his thoughts in a deeper, more accurate way which we have discovered leads to the truth. It all comes back to what experts on the inner workings of communication—those of us involved in research with the unconscious mind—have learned about how the human mind actually confesses in an accurate, symbolic way. We now know that a guilty suspect cannot stop himself from unconsciously (subliminally) telling the truth. Criminologists refer to the science of examining communication from suspects for psychological clues as psycholinguistics, but most of those engaged in that field have yet to learn or are stubbornly ignoring the breakthrough to the unconscious mind which has led to a much deeper and vastly more accurate newer application of psycholinguistics.”

      “Aruba has broken the social contract of tourism; we owe Aruba NOTHING.”

      Precisely, Richard.

    91. Richard on March 27th, 2008 10:04 pm

      Poster #72 … Take your remarks and shove them.

      Need me to tell you where?

      Bob (#89) … It’s clear that Hodges is trying to promote his technical insights, so to speak, as the route by which we will get answers.

      I don’t know if his ideas are true. From what I’ve read, his conclusions are highly speculative and are based on a kind of amateur psychology.

      So much for their validity. Now, are they correct or not? I don’t know.

      Whatever was used to drug Natalee … or even if she wasn’t drugged (I and most people, apparently, believe that she was. That doesn’t prove anything.) … the real issue is that the three scumbags took her off in their car.

      That much is an uncontrovertible fact.

      I agree with Hodges in that I think all of them were involved … and maybe others too.

      Whatever I believe or disbelieve won’t give the answers. The three can. Let’s hope that they will … or that the answers will be discovered.

      Always 1 (#78) … I’ve looked at the Shango stuff. It’s drawn a LOT of speculation, with most people concluding that it was sent by someone who wanted to pass on information about Natalee and what happened to her, but didn’t dare speak out directly for some reason.

      That idea never made much sense to me. If Shango knew something for certain, an anonymous call to the FBI would have sufficed. And there was a substantial reward.

      I’m really going out on a limb here, and I don’t think many people will agree … but I’ve long suspected that Shango was someone in Joran’s circle who was carrying on a kind of pathological game.

      If Joran is indeed psychotic (and I’m not going to say that it’s true, not being qualified to say so and not knowing how much of the background we hear is true), he might indeed revel in the idea that he can outsmart the Aruban police (THAT shouldn’t be difficult) and everyone else.

      And, of course, any sense of importance that he might have is derived from Natalee’s case. Indeed, for nearly three years he has come out “on top” (in a way, at least) in his clashes with Aruban police. He has become infamous worldwide … something which, to a psychotic, probably is peachy keen.

      So is it possible that some of the ‘Pimps,’ with better English than Joran seems to command, was complicit in working out these teasing allusions?
      Things that promise to give information, but never really make anything very clear?

      I don’t know. But I suspect that ‘Shango’ is from the dark side, not a supporter of Natalee.

      Am I wrong? I’m certainly in the minority….

      richard…reference Shango Riddles…..who would know that island and it’s people/culture better than anyone? who would know the arawak(sp) or caribbean voodoo (shango)customs better than anyone? who has contacts all over the island? i have my own opinion. just curious what yours might be.

    94. Carpe on March 28th, 2008 11:45 am

      Dr. Hodges – snip it

      and using condoms to prevent leaving evidence of the assault. Deepak revealed this when reporting sexual contact between Joran and Natalee in his car’s backseat. He noted, “his [Joran’s] hands etc was in her blouse but nothing nude or against Natalee’s will.” His completely unnecessary and overt denial of such important details clues us in to exactly what took place

      I’m with ya, up to the point where ya say Joran
      wore a condom, Dr. Hodges.

      He clearly says in the PDVRS Confession tapes…

      that it means nothing, even if they find THE GIRL
      with my semen in her.

      This guy is so bold, so confident nobody can touch him.

      > He doesn’t feel he needs one!

      He & “DIRT-POCK” (as I so affectionately call him – cause he is nothing – not even a friggin’ speck
      of dirt on a mud flap.)

      “I will finish him.” – Patrickkkkk

      Deepak, that KERMIT THE FROG
      spindly arms havin’ mo-fo!

      Joran & D are birds of a feather, with stories
      like this…

      Observe how their small minds

      This is their logic code. ROFL!!!

      To decode it we shall need two

      D: He noted, “his [Joran’s] hands etc was in her blouse but nothing nude or against Natalee’s will.”

      Joran-stein: Patrick, I threw the wine in Peter De Vries’face. He was screaming “aghhhhhhhhhhh, my eyes they are burningggggg!” …but I WAS SO COOL, it wasn’t like it was aggressive, or anything… it was more like WHO THE F. DO YOU THINK YOU ARRRE?

      I think Joran didn’t wear a condom.

      …and it should really
      disturb people, what Joran-stein Vandersloot says
      in the PDRVS / ABC 20/20 JORAN CONFESSIONS:

      “Even if they find the girl with my sperm in her…”

      This guy is soooo bold… he rapes ‘em & drops ‘em
      off, totally unprotected & unable to defend
      themselves from their enviornment! I guess,
      it is THE GIRL’S fault too… when she gets
      home to the USA… finally sees the doctor, & wonders how she magically got pregnant?

      > HE DOES NOT GIVE A STITCH. Not a bit.

      DONE THIS TO? 20 more walking
      around somewhere? Twenty or so times, and nothing
      has gone wrong, Joran? Yeah, maybe nothing has GONE WRONG FOR ****YOU, BUDDY. …but that is because you are a vicious, hateful, gang-raping, murderous piece of human garbage.

      You are the filthiest of filth, the sub sub filth,
      the basiest of base filth, on which all other filth takes root and sprouts forth!

      The bar really is set so low for you,
      and you and your gosh awful monster
      family seem to love it.

      You seem to feel that works for you!

    98. kaye on March 28th, 2008 2:23 pm

      i’ve been enjoying a little vacation time so i’ve been reviewing all the articles……for me this one caps it.

      Jan van der stratten as Chief of Police battled to control Natalee’s remains. Possibly for as long as 10 days. He lost.

      No body, no crime applied to the security guards too. But they had a body, Natalee’s body.

      Paulus got nervous with the plan and wouldn’t go along with the Chief of Police, his friend Jan van der straaten. The epilepsy routine wouldn’t work, even with the internet research Paulus had done on his computer while Natalee was ON HIS PROPERTY.

      So Paulus got rid of Natalee, completely. He called the Police fools, as did the security guards.

      When Van der straaten thought he had a body, he was charging the innocent guards with homicide. When they couldn’t put the whole thing together (Beth just wouldn’t “shut up”) because in their world, Paulus’s screwed up Jan’s cover-up. Paulus knew the Law, “no body, no crime.”

      Paulus “slipped her in the water.” Abstract words from Paulus’s wooden puppet Joran.

      Then came a confirmation of Natalee’s death, it was broadcast worldwide.

      But wait, it was claimed to have been mis-information. Especially the part about “leading police to the body.”

      That’s when Natalee was gone.

      From “murdered” to “disappeared.”

      I guess they were smoking marijuana? Or was Janssen high when she arrested Paulus?

      He just wouldn’t listen.

      Premeditated Paulus.

      June 11th the stalemate began…
      “Something bad happened … ”

      Possible Break in the Case

      “One of three young men who took Alabama student Natalee Holloway to the beach in Aruba tells police the 18-year-old American had been harmed. An Aruban police official said the man was leading police to the scene.”VAN DER STRAATEN

      Aruba officials are now denying that the “something bad happened” statement was made (at least in that form) and that no one has offered to lead law-enforcement to the scene. VAN DER SLOOT

      Not according to Mr.Trapenberg, spokesperson for Aruba. He just just shared some information on FOX denying the confession but not vehemently denying that “something bad happened”. He was tacitly implying that a confession could have been made but that the manner in which the information was deceminated-to the media-might have been a breach of protocol. VAN DER SLOOT VAN DER STRAATEN

      In a recent press conference the authorities said that they are aware of some rumors that is going on since yesterday night, but they are not confirming them neither denying them and they are at the point that this case will be resolved soon. And that all the five suspects are detained think we will have soon news in the next hours. VAN DER STRAATEN

      Another arrest has just been made. VAN DER STRAATEN

      “Natalee’s body has been found.” FOX News. VAN DER STRAATEN

      Always1 … I wasn’t reading the Shango stuff at the time, but have seen it since. I understand that trying to decipher it became a kind of cottage industry, but Red and Klaasen would be able to tell you much more about it than I can.

      SM: Absolutely NOT (klaasend)

    104. always 1 on March 28th, 2008 5:41 pm

      ok, their way of writing seemed to be a lot alike….Klassend, since you have done this for so long and know all the players….have you formed an opinion of it all but you just dont share it…..i mean this in the kindest way, you are like the all knowing Oz behind the curtain…you see people and have the controls in your hand but keep your thoughts hidden….i hope that makes sense..
      SM: If you are asking my opinion of who is responsible for what happened to Natalee my answer would be Joran, Paulus and the Kalpoes but there may be others also involved. IMO, there are many involved in covering up the crime. I do believe that Shango & Simian either knew what happened or had a pretty good idea what happened and they were trying to tell us in the “safest” way they could. (klaasend)

      misskate, they were 2 posters back in the earlier posts….Simion started first,,, he spoke in a kind of code talk….a brillant person if you ask me…..he gave these clues until Shango started talking in code talk too…he was offended and never appeared again..some thought he worked at one of the police stations of Aruba///// some thought it was a joke on the Scared Monkeys, but I have read it and was impressed….go up further in this blog and Klassend posts the link for you to read it all….

    108. waterboy (Jerry) on March 28th, 2008 7:40 pm

      always 1,

      These are the best pictures yet of the lighthouse. The restaurant use to be the lighthouse keeper’s residence. It you read the plaque, this is true.

      I have speculated that there was a tunnel from the light keepers residence to the lighthouse (I’m sure I read this somewhere, but I can not find it).

      I began to have doubts about the feasibility of cutting though solid rock in order to make a tunnel, but if you read the plaque, where does it say they got the building materials for the lighthouse?

      To answer the above question, it says they got all the rock right there. It says they cut the rock right there. Why not make a tunnel, if you are harvesting rock anyway? Why not incorporate the rock harvest into another useful project.

      Look at the picture of the three guys standing over a square piece of cement. It looks like a manhole. Anyone agree?

      Look at the front picture of the lighthouse. I really would be possible to hid something under the steps.

      I’m sorry, I’m very busy. I’ll try to post when possible.


    109. misskatie on March 28th, 2008 7:47 pm

      I tried to read it but it’s to confusing for me.. all I could make of it is that…. an ex boyfriend of natalees killed her and that the mountainbrook students are hiding it.. also that the united states and aruba are in on it and that joran was a scapegoat??????????????????????????

    112. brie on March 28th, 2008 8:05 pm

      Shango and Simian disagree…whoever they are I think they have been close to the case, seems logical that it would be someone in the police dept. Could be the 2 policeman that were seen at the lighthouse shoveling sand into the trunk of the police cruiser, seen by Dave. Or could be those that were painting the rocks, whoever they were. There was a policeman that told Dave in the very beginning that Natalee was in the ocean.

    113. misskatie on March 28th, 2008 8:39 pm

      ? Yes what I dunno

    114. brie on March 28th, 2008 8:41 pm

      I think there are a lot of monkeys out there but not everyone posts but they do read…and that’s OK…it would be nice to hear from more though…!!!! Some people just like to remain in the background…

      So we have the travel show in Houston this week-end, it is going to be a big flop for Aruba… upfront thanks to all that will be attending.

    118. brie on March 28th, 2008 9:34 pm

      Joran said that when Natalee got into the car, she said the music was too loud and got upset because Deepak put in the sex video…so if that is true Natalee still had her wits about her…I think it was forced raped sex….she probably fought back, maybe the drug hadn’t taken effect yet..this was normal for them, rape a US citizen the night before they leave….he said he has done this 20 times…where are the parents of a 17 yr old, already knowing your kid has mental issues…Anita was away and Paulus and Joran had their fun…

      What father sends his son off to college with a porno cd to keep him awake in class…????

    119. brie on March 28th, 2008 10:25 pm

      Why doesn’t the police investigate why Deepak was cleaning his car at 3:am in the morning…. bring the neighbor in as a witness that saw this….he said he saw it!!!!

      Also, Joran says they drove to his house but didn’t go in…so why drive there…I think Natalee ended up at the Sloot’s house….how do you explain this when he said he was an exchange student I do not know,,,except for the fact that maybe the drug had taken effect….Joran had Freddy and Koen or Sander waiting in Joran’s apt…..Freddy with his camera!!!!! The porno freak!!!! A welcome sight at the Sloot’s house…

    120. Carpe on March 28th, 2008 10:26 pm

      Joran said that when Natalee got into the car, she said the music was too loud and got upset because Deepak put in the sex video

      What Joran neglected to tell Deepak though…
      was that the same DVD he burned that sex video to…

      …was the same DVD he had to erase, in order to re-burn a DIFFERENT movie to it.

      He made a mistake!

      The one Joran originally burned, was of Deepak
      and Satish’s sister being brutally gang-raped just 6 weeks prior.

      I’m tellin’ ya, they are one SICK crew down there.

      Why does Posner give a 17 yr a line of credit,,,he is underage number one but a friend of Paulus. So Hans Mos do something about that…..also accordingly to the Aruban laws Posner should not own an hotel…do something about that…!!!

    124. misskatie on March 29th, 2008 12:12 am

      Theres something very wrong there.. the fact that joran at 17 was able to have an open line of credit… and just who will pay for his gambling debt..daddy…. he doesnt work… and just why doesnt he drive..or have his own car. all his friends do.. and why does pauulus get such strong support from the justice system there? why are they willing to go to such lengths to cover up for pauulus and joran? … why with the losss of all the tourism money.. are they still covering up for them…
      Pauulus and his son are into something… there was someone at pauulus house with cameras? I think its possible they had natalee there… brie hit up on a good point… natalee was coherent… she complained of the loud music.. was the music so that no one could hear her screams.. was she taken to the vandersloots… they did a porn video .. they all including pauulus had their way with her.. than killed her… so she wouldnt talk… they didnt count on all the media exposure and the determination of beth….this is deep very deep. I believe she was there at their house when beth went there.. with greta… why else would pauulus body language be so strange… shaking and sweating profusely…. What baffles me is the part of the judicial system there .. ALL they did to cover up they destroyed evidence…… what does pauulus have on them or what favor do they owe pauulus.. is pauulus some kind of pornography and human trafficing or could it be drugs.. whatever it is its big….where will this all end… I just wished that something would happen to expose them.. they pauulus and anita… ruined his boy.. by enabling him to run free and wild…giving into all his whimms… oh it’s not over … because joran cannot stay out trouble he has visions of grandeur in the crime world.. its been said he wants to start his own business… what.. sell drugs or partner up with his dad… HE IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN BIGGTIME…I sure wished I knew about the rumor that they were having to move and that their house was vandelized… I think that could of been a rumor they started…. either way you look at it.. the head of the mess seems to be pauulus….I get the feeling and pauulus and son and the two brothers stalk girls to rape and do porn films of… someone needs to go under cover and see what realy is happening but than I guess I watch to much columbo.. it just that it bothers me… ….

    125. Richard on March 29th, 2008 7:59 am

      What really matters right now is … what can WE do to promote justice for Natalee? The best answer that we’ve come up with so far is to put pressure on Aruba by encouraging Americans not to go there, and to keep Aruba aware that we will not forget about the case and will not go away.

      This weekend, there are people who are taking part in a demonstration in Houston to promote this goal. To keep up on future plans, please contact and let them know that you want to help out.

      There are no guarantees that encouraging a boycott of Aruba will get justice in this case.

      But what other tool do we have? Trusting Aruba to do the right thing?

      And remember, it’s no longer “just” about Natalee … it’s letting the world know that the money powers … the ones who profit from travel to Aruba … aren’t going to lift a finger for YOU if YOU go missing there, either.

      Pathetic, isn’t it? Nobody in our government or business community will lift a finger for Natalee?

      WE will. Boycott Aruba as though your life depended on it.

      Posting on blogs is easy. Do something ‘real.’
      Stand up for Natalee.

    126. waterboy (Jerry) on March 29th, 2008 8:37 am


      It is possible to have a good parent who has a really rotten, evil, demented kid. Take for example Franklin Graham. Good news is with a good parent, they normally turn out okay, like Franklin.

      When you have an innately evil kid, being raised by innately evil parents, watch out. In this situation anything is possible, even murder. They never seem to be okay, even if they are taken away from the evil parents at a young age and raised by another family.

      The other side of the coin is this: a rotten parent raising an innately good child. God protects the child and turns everything evil into something good. These kids always turn out good, like my wife.


    127. kaye on March 29th, 2008 9:03 am

      i agree with richard….ALL of us have so many unanswered questions and we’ve all tried to formulate some sort of scenario in our minds that makes sense. you know, i’m always hopeful that natalee will be found. god hear our prayers. BUT, and there is always the but……the possibiliy of that happening appears to be very slim. but justice can be served with the prosecution of those involved. i agree with Richard. Boycott where it hits aruba the most…in the bank accounts. like it has already. all concerned american citizensseeking justice for natalee must do their little part, no matter how small. geez….i sound like a bleeding heart. well, i am in this case. keep the pressure on aruba. whatever it takes. boycott the cruise lines, travel agencies, american corporations that do business in aruba, tv programs like regis and keyy that continue to give away trips to aruba. i think i have written over 100 letters in the last few months to all of the above mentioned. i have written the state dept, my state congressmen, senators , conde rice, the fbi, the coast guard, the dutch government at the hague, the queen bea. i’ve even written the aruban government, addressing each letter to specific individuals. i’ve written to all of our major national tv news media, the BBC, asking them to please keep this case alive. i don’t know what good it will do but i remain hopeful. i have had only one response; the dutch prosecutors office informed me that they are not handling this case and refered me to the aruban prosecutor. surprised? anyway, what is a few rolls of stamps, or some emails if someone, even one person, one business starts thinking that maybe, just maybe something needs to be done.
      i think more pressure needs to be put on our own american fbi and state department. perhaps if they received a landslide of letters or emails, phone calls requesting a reinvestigation maybe it would get them moving, again. as i said, i’m ever hopeful.
      bought the t-shirts, the books, the bumper stickers. got my vacation days off for the June boycott in DC. (I live in NC….DC is closer for me). when someone asks me about the teeshirt or the boycott aruba bumper sticker I launch into a speech about what happened. i’ve bought quite a few of the books online from for as little as $2.88 and put them in doctors offices, waiting rooms, dentists office, i donated mine to our library, put some in the candystriper bin at the hospital. get the word out. i’ve printed up flyers so i can post them on windshield in mall parking lots for the june boycott.
      what else can we do? pray every day. pray every day for a miracle for natalee.

    128. kaye on March 29th, 2008 9:09 am

      i just want to add one more thing…
      someone put this on the site the other day, i can’t remember who.
      i had to search over to page 4 i think but i found the video.
      i must have sat there a good 45 minutes crying like a baby after watching beth go through this.i said out loud… my god, how much more can that woman take and still remain as strong and courageous as she appears? god bless her.

    129. kaye on March 29th, 2008 9:22 am

      the june boycott in washington dc….i went to to check it out. appears Dr. Alan Greenspan will be the guest speaker. anyone know how to get in touch with greenspan. perhaps if he is inundated with letters regarding the concerns we have about natalees case and the way it was covered up in aruba, maybe that will shed a new light on his speech as he prepares it. maybe.
      also, the webpage states the influential policy makers, political representatives, tourism and investment representatives will be in attendance. a very good opportunity to boycott.

    130. SS on March 29th, 2008 9:48 am

      Hi Kaye,

      Are Regis and Kelly still giving away trips to Aruba? How horrible! They need more mail Did anyone ever locate the dealership in Alabama who was giving away a car at a Galleia Mall?

      Guess we will be getting some reports today on the travel show in Houston….anxious to hear….hope the Aruba booth is a complete fizzle…I don’t know how anyone can even show their face trying to promote travel to that horrid place.

      Also, just read in Amigoe there is no settlement between the public employees and the gov’t. The article states that the gov’t and the unions are further apart then ever. If the demands of the unions are not meet the government will be taking funds from the entire Aruban economy. Just one happy island.

      what the hell is wrong with all these people from america that give free tickets to aruba… such as in the case of the view… I wrote them that I would never watch their program again and told them why.
      my question is why why are ..they promoting tickets to aruba dont they realize they could very well be puting the recipients at risk for murder, vandalism and many other things.. wheres their loyalty to their country.. do they think that we are just here for fun and that the boycotting is just a hobby.. because we’re bored and have nothing better to do..I say .
      . we are here because theres a cause that needs to be adressed.a huge necessity.aruba. … cares less..about seeking justice … they seeminly hate americans.. but yet they love our money.. they they are incompetent insensetive…..I especialy cant stomach karin jannsen I believe she was the female prosecutors and omg
      than there is the idiot that had to eat his cornflakes before he could talk to beth … the insensetive way in which they kept natalees family waiting for hrs at the police station.. and the mean comments they made about natalee.. I couldnt believe the comments they sickened un-proffesional…how.. disgusting was that….. I go to bed at night.. and pray for god to bring justice.. because it weighs so heavy on my heart.. I can feel beths and daves pain.. I have two grown daughters and for the life of me… couldnt imagine the pain beth and dave felt and are still feeling.. perhaps they have come to terms with the fact that .. aruba will never bring justice for them.. but there is no way that pauulus and joran can go through this life and not pay in some way.. theres no way they will be totaly at peace.. karma will reign heavy in their lives… you cant destroy peoples lifes and not ever stand accountable.. life will get harder.. we may not always be informed of it.. but rest assured … it wont be smooth for them…. they lost all credibility.. in in gods more thing… Joran and pauulus will screw up some where somehow because of the life style they have.. the life of natalee will be vindicated.. I carry natalee within my thoughts through out the day and pray that something will happen to bring her remains home … R.I.P NATALEE…………

    139. Richard on March 29th, 2008 1:31 pm

      Brie (#134)… Thanks for posting that. I was wondering what had happened on this burning issue.

      Just another reason to avoid going to Aruba … in case anyone was thinking of doing so.

      As for the people who live there … let them handle their own problems. Obviously they’re not going to worry about OUR concerns (justice for an American missing on their stinking hell-hole for nearly three years), so … sorry, but the sooner your outhouse falls apart, the better.

      Misskatie (#138) … The answer is a five-letter word. Not honey, but one that sounds very much like it (guess it would be a homonym).

      That’s probably the exact same reason that the American Society of Travel Agents wouldn’t do one damn thing. I wrote them several letters, and they basically told me what I was in their eyes … and it wasn’t pretty.

      At least they didn’t call me an Aruban.

      Richard #139…you are very welcome, I couldn’t retrieve anything in English for about 6 days.

      It is so wonderful that people take their time, their money, their dedication and their hearts to visit these travel shows and spread the word of Natalee…not everyone attends these shows but those that do spread the word and from there it continues on and on….I truly admire what you folks are doing, I know there have been many times when you stood out in the blistering cold to support the quest for Natalee…true soldiers…

      If you are an American and you choose to vacation in Aruba you should be completely ashamed of yourself..

      [...] message to teens and college age kids … learn from the story of Natalee Holloway who went missing in Aruba. For those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat [...]

      Dear Beth,
      I watched almost every report during that terrible investigation, I am so sad that another woman has lost her life, however I think justice will be served here with the capture of Joran. I am thinking of you. I can only hope that he will someday tell the sad story so that you will know the answers. Sally

      It has been many years since I have seen you, Scooter, Johnny and Aunt Ann. I hope you read this blog and contact me because I need email addresses of all our cousins. I am the only one left from your aunt Sue’s family with the exception of my niece Carmen. Please let everyone know I am still alive but don’t go much anymore. If I am wasting my time on this blog then please excuse me everyone.

      There is an area in Aruba that needs to be searched more thoroughly. I sent a message of the details where and why to her father’s foundation’s web site. I hope one or the other of these sites is still being monitored. Is there somewhere else to send information anonymously?

    163. Lynda MacPherson on February 15th, 2014 6:05 pm

      Beth, and family,

      I’m very sorry for the pain you’ve had to endure all these years. I totally understand your motivation, and dedication to your daughter Natalee. I, too, have gone through a similar experience. But, it wasn’t in Aruba – it was in Austria. In August 1989, my 23-year old son vanished while snowboarding on a licensed ski slope. Evidence pointed to a cover-up, by the ski operator, and worse, by authorities. We carried on our own investigation for fourteen years. In 2003, Duncan’s body was found in the middle of the ski slope. Global warming over the 90s caused the glacier ice to melt down to the level of where he had been buried in the crevasse. Injuries showed he had been hit by a snow grooming machine, and then dumped in a crevasse, and covered up. The investigation of death was a sham – corruption at every level, from the coroner through to the police, public prosecutor, forensic pathologist, Ministry of Justice.

      I totally understand your need to know what happened to Natalee. For those fourteen years that Duncan was “missing” were so very, very difficult. We knew that when we did find the answer, it would not be good news – but there is still a very deep need to see your child, even if he/she is dead. You want to know what happened. Surely as parents it’s not too much to ask of any society.

      The point is that it is not just Aruba where these things happen. For the past 25 years, because of what happened to Duncan, I have followed other cases of missing young people, including Natalee’s. I can’t begin to tell you in this email all the details, but, there is a clear pattern in countries that survive off tourism to cover-up the true circumstances of the young person’s death – “it’s not good for business.”

      The problem is that we are so isolated,and fragmented – it’s Natalee in Aruba, Duncan in Austria, Becky Middleton in Bermuda, Julie ward in Kenya…. the list goes on, and on, and on.

      I think the parents/families of these young victims who lose their life through no fault of their own need to unite – we need an international body that regulates investigations of missing young people.

      As my husband says, even an animal stands up for its young.

      I just wanted you to know that we are so sorry you’ve lost Natalee; I know it’s left a huge hole in your heart that cannot be repaired, ever. But I also know that finding out what happened to her is crucial to her family, and friends.

      Warm regards,
      Lynda and Bob MacPherson
      Saskatoon, Canada
