Search for Natalee Holloway:Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch … New Witness in Aruba, Discusions with Prosecutor Hans Mos & Polygraph Exams
Why does Aruba after all this time and bad PR still not want to cooperate and find Natalee Holloway?
As was previously reported, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch had traveled this past week to Aruba to meet with Aruban prosecutor Hans Mos to discuss some recent breaking events in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Please note that Tim Miller will be a guest tonight, Hurricane IKE pending, to discuss his meeting with Hans and the new information in the Natalee Holloway case.
Tim Miller met with Aruban Prosecutor Hans Mos to discuss and show Mos in person the results of the polygraph exams conducted in Houston, TX. Miller discussed with Mos the new witness who had come forward and the fact that the 48 year old witness had passed two polygraph exams. However, Hans Mos was quick to point out to Tim Miller that polygraph tests are not looked upon favorably or have much credibility in Aruba. Hans Mos also questioned why after all this time the witness came forward. Miller pointed out to Mos that this witness had previously come forward to the ALE; however, this point seems to be in question. According to our accounts this witness had previously come forward and was turned away. Interesting? Tim Miller and Texas EquuSearch want to search the pond are in question that suddenly is now going to be excavated by the Aruban government after word got out that an unidentified Aruban witness traveled to the US to potentially help in the Natalee Holloway case. These searches and digs would be at no cost to Aruba. So why won’t Aruba allow this pond to be searched?
From all accounts Hans Mos was none to happy with Tim Miller’s presence in Aruba and the bringing up of the Natalee Holloway case. As Tim Miller stated, “Hans, all we want to do is search this area first and have a member of the ALE there when it happens. It will cost Aruba nothing. We want to do this before the government comes in with their heavy equipment and ruins the point of interest forever.” Although Tim Miller has left Aruba, the efforts to search this area and put an injunction to stop any digging there is far from over. According to Tim, one of the major reasons for his early departure was to get home to Houston, TX and baton down the hatches and prepare for Hurricane Ike.
The question arises as to why Mos would be unhappy with Tim Miller’s presence on Aruba. Maybe some of it had to do with the Diario article that came out this week regarding the new witness. Doesn’t Mos want to solve the case of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance? Hasn’t Mos stated in the past that a witness needs to come forward? One would think that Mos would want to follow a new lead that could potentially solve the case of missing Natalee Holloway so that Aruba could get on with their existence without the “dark cloud” over their island. Hans Mos had stated to Miller that polygraph exams are not deemed credible in Aruba. Really?
To use the words Aruba and credible in the same sentence when discussing and investigation is the definition of irony. On an island where they do not find suspects lying of what they intially did with Natalee Holloway credible, or implicating innocent black security guards in a crime credible, or continually changed suspect statements credible, or even confessions to the crime from the very mouth of Joran Van der Sloot credible … now a potential new witness comes forward and Mos says that polygragh exams are not credible. Unbelievable.
Whether one considers a polygraph exam credible or not, it is the job of investigators and the prosecutor to determine whether this witness is credible and has an accurate accounting of what may have happened. Until they prove this witness is not credible …. this witness is credible. It really speaks volumes as to why the Aruban prosecutor would find reasons to discredit a witness as opposed to be excited that a potential witness could break and solve the case. Things that make you go hmmm … and the reason why Aruba will forever be under a dark cloud of suspicion.
