Hey Aruba … No Body, No Crime, REALLY??? Jessica O’Grady Missing & Presumed Dead … Edwards is now serving 80 years to life


No body, No Crime … Only in Aruba and when a crime is committed like in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. In other places where people take crime seriously there are arrests, prosecutions and convictions made without a body all the time. Like in the case of missing Nina Reiser and her husband Hans Reiser who is presently on trial for her murder. Or in the case of Kendrick Williams as well. Its only in places like Aruba where a cover up of a crime takes precedent over a crime against an individual where justice is denied that such actions are condoned. It would appear that only in Aruba does Paulas Van der Sloot’s comments of “No Body, No Crime” ring true.

Satish says to Joran: I didn’t declare anything.
Joran says to the brothers: Of course you did.
Satish says to Joran: What did I say / against your father?
Joran says to the brothers: You said that he (Joran’s father) said that if there’s no corpse there’s no case, or I don’t know what more sorts of shit.
Joran says to the brothers: That’s not true, the only thing he (Joran’s father) said that if there’s no body there don’t have a case.

Jessica O'Grady 1

(Jessica O’Grady, University of Nebraska at Omaha student)

19 year old University of Nebraska student, Jessica O’Grady, is missing and presumed dead. Jessica O’ Grady was last seen on May 10, 2006. O’Grady made a cell phone call the night that she went missing stating that she was going to the house of the man she had dated, Christopher Edwards. Jessica O’Grady was never seen nor heard from again. No body, no crime, huh? Don’t tell that to Christopher Edwards. Jessica’s body was never recovered; however, Christopher Edwards is presently serving 80 years to life in the death of Jessica O’Grady.

Jessica O’Grady, who is presumed dead, was last seen alive on May 10, 2006. She made a call from her cell phone late that night, saying she was going to the house of a man she had dated, Christopher Edwards. Edwards is now serving 80 years to life for the 19-year-old woman’s death, although her body has never been found.

Investigators aren’t giving any details of the tip, but say it is promising.

      There is no comparing these cases to the Natalee Holloway case.

      In the O’Grady case her blood was found everywhere.

      “The 19-year-old’s body has not been found, but prosecutors relied heavily on DNA evidence found in Edwards’ bedroom and car over the two-week trial. They said O’Grady’s blood was found on two swords recovered from Edwards’ residence as well as on a headboard, mattress, comforter and the ceiling of Edwards’ bedroom.”

      If you fully research the other cases there is more evidence and different circumstances also which would be too long to get into.

      If you want to compare cases, those cases should be those that have disappeared without a trace with no evidence. And a confession, if one was to call the tape a full confession, made secretly which is then later retracted doesn’t hold up to conviction without corroborating evidence. No different in our own justice system.

      If only this could be possible in the case of natalee holloway… the coverup by aruban authorities made it impossible… what influence does pauulus have … theres something wrong here… digging deep would discover why apuulus has so much support from aruba……….. somethings wrong there we all know ..

      You are correct in identifying the presence of plentiful DNA evidence in Jessica O’Grady’s death. The very lack of Natalee’s DNA and evidence of any kind is one of the greatest frustrations for America citizens. We feel that individuals connected with the government of Aruba have destroyed evidence and disrupted Natalee’s investigation, in an attempt to protect one or more of their own. This is the basis for the American anger against the island of Aruba and the Dutch. Why would Joran van der Sloot have the need to create so many conflicting stories about his contact with Natalee Holloway, if he were in fact innocent? Christopher Edwards also maintained his innocence in the death of Jessica O’Grady, in spite of plentiful DNA evidence.

    6. Carpe on March 29th, 2008 1:28 pm

      “Yes, Patrick by you can ABUSE THAT AS WELL.”

      -Joran Vandersloot


      Peter De Vries Confession Videos

      This is what Joran said about how he could abuse
      all the MEDIA HYPE to profit it from it. He planned to do that while waiting for his BIG FAT CHECK while his father sued all the Prosecutor & ALE putas in ARUBA.

      He wants a big fat check for gang-raping murdering and throwing little ol’ 105 pound dainty Natalee Ann Holloway down into the
      Marriott Water Basin,
      Palm Beach…

      So his BANANA BUDDY could
      escort her out into the sea
      for disposal.

      That Joran, he’s a real sweetheart,
      Anita. You done good.

      Jordy’s a catch, alright! Someone needs to catch
      his a$$.

      You may want to read the whole story and stop being an apologist.

      There are two other cases mentioned.

      I am glad thought that you fell into the trap of mentioning the evidence that was destroyed and covered up though.

      Thank you, R

    8. SS on March 29th, 2008 3:27 pm


      I don’t know who you are and quite frankly, I really don’t care. I don’t think, however, that the sentiments that you express are really those of most Arubans. I think that most Arubans are probably as disgusted with the van der Sloots and ALE as we are. Unfortunately though, they won’t step up to the plate and demand action. Until they do, we will continue our Boycott of Aruba and our demands for Justice. Stupid statements made by people like you only fuel our anger and reinforce the need for us to maintain our position to right the wrong. If I were you, I would be too embarassed to even admit that I found anything about Joran van der Sloot’s behaviors, attitude, or statements to defend.

    9. jason on March 29th, 2008 3:33 pm

      I’d laugh but I think you’re really trying to be serious.

      Calling someone an apologist is childish to say the least. There’s no comparison with the cases. I’m well aware of the whole story. The other two cases are not comparable either.

      No trap was fallen into because you didn’t set one, you are simply trying to make yourself look less foolish by attacking me. We all may have our theories and speculations as to what may or may not have been destroyed but it doesn’t make it factual in the least.

      I’d give some examples of cases that would be closer to comparing to Natalee’s but it’s obvious that it would just go over your head as it appears the object of your blog is to post articles with no substance so you can get the same usual responses from the several regulars that are here.

      Obviously this is your blog site and you may post articles that in actuality have no substance anytime you choose. However all it does is make you look foolish to the outside.


      And #3, no I don’t believe our justice system would be body slamming anyone against any concrete, but since I noticed when I posted that posts had to wait for moderator review, seems that your type post is what is the norm and applauded here.

      Go for it.

    10. txchic on March 29th, 2008 3:50 pm

      aruba can’t even bring a case to trial with a full confession. face it, if they had a body those idiots would still be making excuses. in fact if joran & crew had video taped the murder the aruban government wouldn’t prosecute. they’re a complete joke.

    11. Nut44x4 on March 29th, 2008 3:54 pm

      The other day I came across a list of convictions w/o a body. I could kick my butt for not saving it. If I can find it, I will post it here. You would be amazed if you could see how long the list was!! HUGE!

      OH and don’t forget what Karin said>>
      Aruba A.G: Prosecution possible without body
      ‘Difficult but not impossible,’ Janssen says.

      “Aruban officials have said previously a murder conviction is possible without a body, but the case requires strong evidence such as a confession, reliable statements and forensic evidence of wrongdoing. Aruba is a Dutch protectorate and as such operates under Dutch law.

    12. Miss-Underestimated on March 29th, 2008 4:22 pm

      Let’s give Jason a little credit, just a little. Yes you cannot compare the cases.
      When you have a competent investigative and LE system, justice is served, but when you have an inept and corrupt system, indeed there is no justice. That’s the only comparison with these cases Jason

    13. SS on March 29th, 2008 4:42 pm

      no you can’t compare the cases only because if something happen to her at Joran’s place and by the way their were not allowed to search the whole property of van der sloot.If their was any dna that was disposed of any evidence from her body was disposed of when they put her in the ocean.A big cover up in aruba.Big time and we need to continue to boycott aruba.

      IMO the “House of Cards” is still being propped up by those who will lose the most if it falls!

      If he shoots himself in his pecka…

      it would only require a pea shoota.

      I agree, we keep rollin’ that

      They cannot save him anymore! Who’d want to?

      Too many people have been damaged. He was nothing to start with… and even less now,

      Gina Renee Hall has been missing for over 25 years,but Stephen Epperly has been in jail since 1982 for her murder. So much for No Body No Case in the State of Virginia. The LE was dragging it feet on this case ,but her father was like Beth Holloway and was not going to take No for an answer.

      ERIC MARRAPODI, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: Well, Nancy, there are two ways to put this. We just don`t know at this point. We`re told he was brought in for questioning by police and later arrested, held for about six hours. They said it was part of that going back and taking a look at everyone involved. He had not been questioned before. First, we heard that he was D.B. by prosecutors, they later sent out another release and corrected his initials to A.B. So right now, no one quite knows who A.B. is other than he was arrested and detained for six hours and questioned in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

      GOLDBAND: I`ll abstain from comment on that one Nancy. Geoffrey von Cromvoirt, he of course, caught the 15th of this month, set free on the 24th and, of course, now this new person, we don`t have a photo of this person, Nancy, all we have are two initials and now just realized three hours ago, these are the right initials, A.B., six hours is how long this person was held for.

      GRACE: Dave, did you get your hopes up when you found out Von Cromvoirt had been taken into custody and then A.B. or E.B., they are changing the initials on us, over the weekend had been taken into custody, only to find out they had both been released?
      MANSUR: You know, I can`t imagine what kind of connection it could have. I know that this person that they`ve arrested and questioned for six hours has a Web site in which he appears, in which you`ll find pictures of Joran and many other girls. Maybe there is some kind of a connection that the police want to know or the prosecution as to what degree does he know these people and what would he know about the Holloway case itself?

      Some say it is Adnin Bikker, others say it is Andraes.

      been done. VDStn gave that desiccated

      rabbit nugget (paulus) a break to get rid of all

      evidence. He did just that! Also, he managed

      to get a pre-paid phone into prison for MATON.

      There’s the communication link right there.

      He refused to talk unless they let his dad out.

      He then was given a celly, and was coached

      on what to say. He could get messages to the

      outside to compare lies with others, so all

      are on the same page.

    45. kaye on April 2nd, 2008 1:53 pm

      #42 misskatie…..this was taken from Aruban Dirty Police website……………………..

      Jan van der straaten: “Corrupt to the Core”
      True words spoken by Beth Holloway. In the battle for Natalee’s body.

      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
