Three Year Anniversary of Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba … Still Looking for Justice for Natalee


It is hard to believe that it has been 3 years since the disappearance of Natalee Holloway 2Natalee Hollway in Aruba. Three years since the last night on Aruba of the Mountain Brook, AL high school trip. Three years since that fateful moment when Natalee Holloway left Carlos N’ Charlies at closing in a car with Deepak Kalpoe, Satish Kalpoe and Joran Van der Sloot.

A missing person case that now three years later does not seem to be any close to being solved than in the initial days of the investigation. Why is that? Why were there no leads that would lead to an arrest of the obvious suspects in this case? Why were there court obstructions to re-arrests when the evidence was obvious and confessions were made?

Answers may not have been answered yet in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway; however, changes have happened in both Mountain Brook and Aruba where the two locations will forever be linked and will never be the same.

Charlotte Botsford is a Mountain Brook youth pastor. She said Natalee Holloway’s senior trip disappearance has forced parents to scale down the annual tradition.
From what I can tell it has changed significantly. A lot of students are going to the beach or the lake and they are taking a lot parents with them,” Botsford recalled. (NBC13)

One of the legacies of Natalee Holloway is awareness. No one can look upon any vacation paradise as safe no matter what tourism brochures claim. All too often we make are selves aware of our surroundings during our every day life; however, when on vacation those walls are taken down because we have been lead to believe that its OK, “no problem mon.” That is not the case anymore.

“You have to vigilant at all times especially as a woman it’s very important, be cautious in the world we’re in. No place is perfectly safe. Not even Mountain Brook,” Ford pointed out.

Dave Holloway tries to be optimistic and hopes that the recent sonar searches off Aruba may solve the mystery as to what happened to Natalee. A search that would have appeared to have ended prematurely with so many potential targets still needed to be investigated. One hopes that it will be resumed in the near future.

Dave Holloway said ocean floor sonar searches off the coast of Aruba found about 170 targets.
Due to bad weather and technological limitations, they were only able to examine a handful of those targets.
Holloway hopes to resume the searches as soon as possible.

However, there are still many answers that Aruba needs to answer to as to what happened to Natalee Holloway. No one just disappears. Especially on an island so small. Especially when little to no competent investigation or real interrogation was done to the very people who were last seen with Natalee. People, Deepak, Satish and Joran, who lied through their teeth from the outset as to what their involvement was.

Its been 3 years since Natalee Holloway went missing, Aruba, don’t you think its about time this case was closed and answers can be provided to Natalee’s family? As the letter that was recently posted in Diario stated, it’s about time we end this tragedy, let us join together and bring Natalee home. After three years we are still looking for “Justice for Natalee”.

      Unfortunately, at this point in time, logic tells me that there is nothing left of that poor child’s battered and abused body.

      The only thing left is to get some satisfaction…to get Justice for Natalee!!

      But there again, it’s been three years since she “went missing”, three years since the authorities on Aruba have KNOWN who, where, when and why she disappeared.

      Logic again, tells me there will never be Justice for this poor child. One can only hope that Joran and the rest of his family, remain “Personnas non Grata” wherever they go!!

    3. Destiny on June 1st, 2008 12:04 pm

      I have faith that there is a HERO in Aruba…One Brave Heart…One Caring Soul…I hold onto this faith…Heroes of Aruba…make your voices heard!

      We will stand with you…as we stand with the Girl.

      hear that special song for natalee with strong message to aruba

    5. crossbow on June 1st, 2008 12:40 pm

      When is Rob Smith going to wise up. No matter where the ATA goes to a Travel Show; some of us will be there to remind potential tourist of Natalee Holloway and what could happen to them travelling to Aruba under the guise of “One Safe Happy Island”. “That” could almost be called an oxymoron

    6. Destiny on June 1st, 2008 1:29 pm

      To Ofironit…

      Beautiful…You have captured the essence of Natalee and the situation…you are very gifted…Thank You…

    7. Carpe on June 1st, 2008 1:37 pm

      Paulus & Joran are two of the most arrogant, dumbest loads I’ve ever seen before in my life.

      They are not smart enough to get rid of Natalee’s body 100% for a lifetime.

      Nor is anybody they could hire. That person would have to be stupider than they are, because
      he accepted the job.

      They’ll find her one day! The two murdering frankenstein Van der sloots will get a megaton
      dropped on them one day, when they least expect

      …and they’ll pee their drawers.

      …and provided Paulus dressed himself & forgot
      to zip his fly up, he’ll be alright. Joran’s
      gonna need a change of clothes though.

      -justice for natalee
      luv u natz, you’ll be
      home again one day.

      My brother in law and spouse just got back from a cruise to the Caribbean, which was offering a really good deal (Aruba was NOT on the itinerary…thanks to me). He said he’ll never go again…he went to Jamaica, Grand Caymons, and a bunch of others, and said the only place he felt safe was on the ship, or the designated island resorts. Things evidently haven’t got much better in crime prevention, folks, and he saw a lot of poverty which generates crime…although in Natalee’s case pretty sure it was the “privileged” classes who apparently were above the law who were responsible. Just a timely reminder…watch your back ANYWHERE in the Caribbean.

      So very sad. It has been three years of torture for Beth and Dave.

      SM. I have a suggestion, on June 10, can you make a headline that today is the 3rd. anniversary that the Aruban authorities were given a confession by the suspect and was lead the authorities to the body?

      Justice for Natalee Ann Holloway

    12. Patti on June 1st, 2008 3:58 pm

      Three years later…

      still looking for

      Justice for Natalee.


      As Christians, we forgive…

      But, we will NEVER Forget!

    13. Patti on June 1st, 2008 4:05 pm


      Don’t forget Mummy Anita!

      I hope she didn’t forget

      her Depends.


      What a dreadful bunch.

      They don’t care who they piss off…

      They THINK they’re untouchable.


      Officer, remember to wear your gloves…

      We don’t want them giving you the plague!

      Just lock ‘em up, Boys,


      Throw Away the Key!


      Justice for Natalee!

      As this Grad’s of 2008 look ahead to their futures….we all remember a young lady who never got to enjoy hers…..

      3 years later-still no answers. The guilty are FREE. Joran Van Der Sloot, Deepak & Satish Kalpoe- Anita and Paulus Van Der Sloot—-to name a few:




      Of aiding and abetting in a crime. The MURDER and RAPE of Natalee Ann Holloway.

      WHAT GAVE THEM THE RIGHT to take a life so carelessly???

      You may be gone, Natalee—but you are never forgotten.


      ***** BOYCOTT ARUBA *****

      or you could be next !!!!! ***

      I can’t say I am surprised we are still here 3 years later. After all we have seen from the people involved in this case, it doesn’t surprise me. It was all about feeding the family and public one lie after the other to delay, stall and drag it in hopes they would go away and they could go on pretending it never happened. Parade out a new group of people, when everyone got tired of the previous groups big lies.

      Dompig, Arlene, Rudy Croes, Oduber, Charles Croes,Jacobs, Straten, Steve Cohen, Sloots, Kalpoes, they all make me sick. Then their is the Renee groupies who are just as sick making up lies. Liars and more liars. Let them put on the show, just another nail in their coffin..

      I would never allow my daughter to go to this place. Nothings changed. Someday they will have to come to terms with the fact that Natalee was the victim of people living in Aruba. Noone is held accountable for anything in this, not to mention the conflicts of interest. Everyone there can now plead they were on weed and didn’t know what they were doing. Just totally unbelievable everything we have seen from the Kalpoes and Sloots for 3 years. Instead of Renee being worried about what time Beth arrived in Aruba.. let her worry why Deepak said in chat session the night Natalee disappeared that Natalee put her hands down his pants, because he wanted to throw off an investigation, when it wasn’t even known Natalee was missing and there was no investigation yet. Instead of questioning the last 3 seen with Natalee and the total opposite bizarre behaviour of anyone who is innocent , they want to question a family a thousand miles away when Natalee went missing. sick people with no common sense.

      I saw Tim Miller on Fox News yesterday. He said they are cutting back searches due to gas prices.

    16. richard on June 1st, 2008 9:10 pm

      Maggie, is Tim Miller still in Aruba? When he says “they” are cutting back searches, does he mean Texas Equusearch, the ALE for the Tromp guy, or just overall?

      Jossy Mansur … if you are reading this …

      Please remember that I e-mailed you asking you to take the lead in raising money to fund the mission of the Persistence. There is no more appropriate place on Earth to seek money for this than in Aruba.

      You replied on the same day, saying that it was a good idea and that you would get going on it.

      So what have you done? How much have you raised?

      I don’t for one second pretend to know the answers. All I know is that over the last three years, if anyone on Aruba can claim to have been by the side of Beth and Dave, that person is you.

      So please keep your word. If you are acting in secret, or have done so already, ignore this.

      If not … please explain your inaction. Are you just another fair-weather friend, like those in the U.S. media? (Our politicians don’t even count.)

      This tragedy is not something to be used now and then. We the American people want answers. You say that you don’t support the boycott … we will continue our efforts. Getting answers in Natalee’s case AND bringing all responsible parties (and I mean ALL) to trial, and handing down appropriate sentences, is the only course that will (perhaps) lead us to conclude that the need for the boycott is ended.

      As we say in New England, fish or cut bait.

    17. kaye on June 2nd, 2008 9:30 am

      my heart still aches for beth and dave. but mostly in my mind i keep seeing that beautiful child, scared,torchured and in pain all at the hands of those scumbags. and the killers are still walking the earth free, today, three years later. i’m praying that some new information will come out, something that will put the killers away for the rest of their natural life. i pray that our merciful god will answer our prayers.

    18. Maggie on June 2nd, 2008 2:53 pm

      Richard, I just happen to see Tim Miller on Fox News so I listened.. not sure what all he did say, but I did hear him say they were cutting back searches due to gas prices. I would assume he searches in general. Never heard him mention the Aruban search.. He may have before I tuned in.

    19. Maggie on June 2nd, 2008 2:53 pm

      ^ he meant

    20. crossbow on June 2nd, 2008 3:45 pm

      I sure would like to know whst is in this building and what is its’ useage. The tower appears to be a repeater station for cell phones but could also be used for TV, and Radio Broadcasting. About 200 yards south of that tower is the entrance to an abondoned gold mine as shown on a gold mine map of 1895.

    21. Carpe on June 2nd, 2008 4:19 pm


      I was wondering if they planned on having a few a$$ out, doo-dinky, nit-wit Aruban morons phoning
      in more bomb threats to Queen Beatrix Airport?

      Yup, can’t give NATALEE HOLLOWAY’S family an apology, answers to their daughter’s awful death,
      or basic human kindness & compassion…

      However, you can f’n find it in yourselves to stop
      and entire country for an extra buck in your paycheck. Sleeping on the floor of Parliment, and phoning in bomb scares to the airport…

      You f’n idiots. I’d love to whip off my slipper
      and acquaint you with it. Like that guy who beat
      the squirts out of the Saddam Hussein statue as
      it was being pulled down.

      ARUBAN DIRT! It is in their direction in which I choose to do sommme thingggggs! An ELMO got more comin’. The weather has been fantastic! -j4n

      just to show how little our own government cares about Natalee’s case, I received this letter yesterday from the FBI…..dated may 29, 2008 on FBI letterhead, washington, DC….
      “Dear. Ms.xxxx:
      Your March 27 letter to the FBI about the disappearance of Natalee Holloway has been received. We appreciate the interest and concern which prompted you to write and share your views with the FBI. Sincerely, Linda M. Trigerio-Pabst,Executive Secritariat Office”.
      2 lines….that’s all they wrote, nothing more. No concern, no sympathies, no updates as to whether or not our own government is still investigating or not, nothing. just a short ‘brush off”. and to top it off, it took them 2 months to reply! how’s that for showing concern!

    23. Sharon/Tx on June 24th, 2008 4:43 am

      Aruba has been “punked” by a punk. This little punk let a father search repeatedly through a garbage dump, let citizens search, let 2 guards sit in prison, watched F16′s search…….. and all the time holds the answer. Get a backbone Aruba. God answers our prayers in “His” time. God bless Natalee and her parents.

      [...] the dates and time … A&E plans to air a documentary that looks into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba and “What Happened to Natalee Holloway”. The Natalee Holloway story was just [...]

    25. Bill on September 19th, 2008 6:39 am

      Just like OJ Simpson, everyone knows Jordon Van der Sloot is guilty. There is no rock in the world he, can hide under. Having been at that spot next to the Marriott many times over many years, the taped confession rings true and was my first thought when the location was mentioned. Offshore winds push everything out to sea. Every windsurfer and sailor totally knows anything in those waters will be blown out to sea unlike most beaches. Should your board or boat slip off the anchor it will literally be blown to Venezuela. Look at a map. Hopefully, Like OJ, this arrogant spoiled brat will get justice in the end.

      Corruption at its most obvious. Eight days to cover up crime. Two scapegoats to railroad. Paulus is an ass, and beyond. Go Nancy! If it were my child . . . One mother, whose daughter died at the hands of a pedophile, in England, took a gun to court – bam.

      I just couldn’t do it – lie for those little punks. For the dad. A mother who raised a little sociopath, for they are bred to be what they are: acting as though her son did nothing more than to spill a glass of milk.

      I have a list of women I pray for, and a couple victimized males as well.

      Amanda Jones: she let her guard down. The father of her child – wanted to talk. Let the courts do your talking women. Do not be lured.

      A. Papke

    28. Audrey Papke on January 28th, 2009 4:34 am

      Oh, the two vicimized males: the two black scapegoats and poor street people who get beaten up. Not those spoiled sociopath Aruban brats.
