A&E Big Spender: What Happened to Natalee Holloway … Missing in Aruba


Save 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 recently back in the news as an unidentified witness came forward who had passed polygraph test and place both Joran Van der Sloot and his father Paulus Van der Sloot out at 4:00 am the morning of May 30, 2005. New witness accounts can be read HEREHERE and HERE.


Bill Kurtis hosts this documentary special that looks at the case that shocked the nation–the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway on the island of Aruba on May 30, 2005. Natalee was last seen alive leaving a bar with three young local men, who became the prime suspects.

Aruba investigators and prosecutors have continually been given evidence and have consistently looked the other way. By avoiding issues and hiding their head in the sandy beaches of Aruba, officials this that the Natalee Holloway story will just go away. How wrong could they be …

      Someone tell Anita that it’s not just “that mother” that won’t shut up about this case and the criminal actions of her son, her husband and her husband’s friends.

    2. Richard on September 18th, 2008 8:38 am

      I wonder if someone from A&E has been reading here, or elsewhere, about the latest stuff coming out.

      Perhaps we can re-invigorate the boycott Aruba movement? The phrase “no justice for Natalee, no tourists for Aruba” means as much now as ever.

    3. brie. on September 18th, 2008 9:21 am

      They have the answers and they know where Natalee is…Paulus is the one they are protecting because of his dirty work….!!!!

    4. Von Kitty Kat on September 18th, 2008 9:51 am

      I for one will make sure that I see that program. Whenever I think of Natalee, I can still see Beth and Jug and of course Dave and Robin and imagine what sort of pain these persons have had to endure and what strength of character they have shown in the face of all that has transpired.

    5. misskatie on September 18th, 2008 10:15 am

      u are right its pauulus they are protecting.. he has info on others so he uses it to his advantage.. dirty dog.

    6. misskatie on September 18th, 2008 10:15 am

      everytime they show pics of joran and his dad … I wanna puke…

    7. kaye on September 18th, 2008 10:27 am

      i’ve made copies of the A&E lineup, going to pass them out all around town and leave them in all the shops. if every monkey would take a few minutes to do the same we can keep the story alive.(or as Richard says “re-invigorate the boycott Aruba movement”). sooner or later, there will be justice for natalee. these POS cowards cannot run and hide forever.

    8. Justice on September 18th, 2008 11:13 am

      should be interesting to watch.

    9. libby on September 18th, 2008 11:23 am

      I don’t always mean to be negative but if they arrest and charge Paulus, he will talk and the house of cards will fall. They will not let that happen no matter what happens to Aruba. They have been covering the truth since day one not caring in the least about the lives they have destroyed…Natalee, her family, her friends, the guards, the good people of Aruba…etc. They are evil and always will be.

    10. dennisintn on September 18th, 2008 11:56 am

      i can’t distribute flyers, but i did email a copy of the bulletin to everyone in my address book. seems the least i could do.

    11. justice4nat on September 18th, 2008 11:58 am

      It’s simple scumbags! One of you know where Natalee is. Make an anonymous call and let Texas Equusearch know where Natalee’s body can be found. It’s very unlikely any of you will be prosecuted anyhow even if you did give your name.

      Let Beth and Dave have their child back!!!

    12. LilPuma on September 18th, 2008 12:48 pm

      11. justic4nat. Sadly, it is that simple.

    13. libby on September 18th, 2008 1:08 pm

      It is that simple, however, as one of the K brothers said, if they find the girl, they will find all that sh**. When they disposed of Natalee, I’m thinking they put evidence with her.

    14. brie. on September 18th, 2008 1:24 pm

      I think the simple truth is that they got away with it…and we will never find out what happened…I don’t want to seem negative but let’s face the reality…a crime was committed and they are not going to hold anyone responsible, especially someone that holds incriminating evidence over their head…

    15. Richard on September 18th, 2008 1:24 pm

      I think they’re protecting more than PvdScum.

    16. libby on September 18th, 2008 2:36 pm

      I think it goes far beyond Paulus too Richard. No one person can have enough power to destroy an entire island…which is what they have done by protecting them. They are too stupid to see that though.

    17. kaye on September 18th, 2008 2:52 pm

      richard, you are probably correct. all of the upper echilon of aruba’s so-called “government officials” were/are involved in the “game” that they played. watching the young girls, scoping them out, “picking” one for their “game”, doing god knows what awful things to them under duress (drugged, duct taped, bound, etc) and filming them in leud acts, then selling the videos to those porn dogs in the netherlands via miami florida. that’s my theory.
      i believe , as joran said “we’ve done this 20 times before” that this was a pretty common thing to do, drug the girls, do whatever to them and have them back on the beach by morning. leave them thinking that they were “just drunk”. too embarassed to say anything to anyone, so they would just pack up and go back to the USA, not knowing what had really happened to them. only with natalee, as one of the kalpoes said “something bad has happened to the girl”. i believe something went wrong during the “game” and whatever they were doing to these girls and whoever was doing it, could not get out publicly. maybe it’s a bit more or less than this, but it is my theory.

    18. Lisa in Florida on September 18th, 2008 3:09 pm

      Not only will we (my husband and I) be watching the A&E show, but recording it too!

      Back in the old days (before personal computers and electronic games)…I am talking about when you didn’t have enough change to operate a pinball machine or play a game of billards? Around our house one of the games we played was Stack the Cards. One deck of playing cards will do for most folks. But the object was to build it carefully and with great skill especially at the first level otherwise, you do not get a adequate structure. Why am I referring to this silly but skillful game…well it reminds me so much when describing Natalee’s case and ALL the players. Each one having some connection to the other. Like Urine’s Godfather is initial Chief of Police that later relocated to another carribean Island run by the Dutch. PVS and all of his connections, judges, policemen, political officials and Urine and his buddies right there in the middle of this House of Cards.
      Remember…it only takes One Card to give way and it all comes down! All the poop on who has their grimey hands in this case, those in Holland who are looking the other way and losing evidence that Karen Janssen susposely took herself there when she was “working on the case”.

      So which card will be no longer support this dirty game???

    19. Maggie on September 18th, 2008 3:15 pm

      I will be watching..A&E..

      Richard never heard of the Matty Apts. The Kalpoes were never seen inside Carlos n Charlies as far as I have seen.. Joran probably said I am staying at the Holiday Inn too.. taxi time.. After all he lied about his age and said he was a soccer player from Holland to the MB students. I have always thought Jug is smart and called this what it was right from the start.. I think it was him that said from the first time he saw Paulus, he is pure evil..

      Bill Kurtis hosts this documentary special that looks at the case that shocked the nation–the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway on the island of Aruba on May 30, 2005. Natalee was last seen alive leaving a bar with three young local men, who became the prime suspects. Natalee’s mother, Beth, is convinced that the men know what happened to her daughter, but authorities have been unable to come up with definitive proof that they are responsible for her death. Kurtis examines the key questions in the case: Will Natalee’s body ever be found? Why can’t authorities solve the case? And where did the investigation go wrong?

    21. Maggie on September 18th, 2008 4:02 pm

      Janet let’s hope they don’t rely on the Aruban’s in this case to answer where it went wrong..

    22. allank on September 18th, 2008 5:07 pm

      I was not shocked about the disappearance of Natalee. What shocked me was how they let the guilty parties walk away. Also on TV you could hear the outright lies of the boys with everybody knowing the scum were guilty. Another shocker was the way they treated Natalee Holloways mother. So many times I have wanted to reach in that screen and slap a few around in Aruba. I will always do my utmost to promote the island how I have seen them, totally callous and protecting of rapists and murderers.

      I remember in January of this year when the filming was taking place … Julia Renfro was interviewed when Kurtis Productions was on the Island taping this special. Grrrr

      However … Beth Holloway was also interviewed as well as others who uphold the contention that a corruption Aruban investigation is denying Natalee Holloway justice and … a corruption Aruban investigation is protecting Joran van der Sloot and Paulus van der Sloot from implication in the happenings encompassing that fateful morning when an 18 year old American citizen was never seen again.

      Maggie … I am guardly optimistic.

    25. justice4nat on September 18th, 2008 8:25 pm

      Just curious…..Anyone know who the the narrator is of the documentary by Rene Gielen “The Unrevealed Time Lies.”? (See blogsfornatalee.com)

      To me it sounds like Bill Kurtis (narrator of the upcoming A & E special)

    26. justice4nat on September 18th, 2008 10:04 pm

      Just watched the A & E special. So you want to solve the case, huh, Hans? Following leads are you, Dolph? OK – prove it! Hans, let Tim Miller excavate the pond as he asked you to do AT NO CHARGE TO ARUBA!

    27. Tamikosmom on September 18th, 2008 10:33 pm

      I just finish watch the A&E special.

      What can I say? I am sooo discouraged.

      Unless Joran van der Sloot comes to a place where a burden of guilt in regards to his involvement in the happenings encompassing that fateful morning is too heavy a load to bear and … he bows … genuinely repents and … reveals the absolute truth … I believe that Aruban justice for Natalee Holloway will be forever elusive.

      However … a day of accounting is still forthcoming for all those who participated and … all those who were involved ub or aware of the coverup … for all those who did not repent. This day of accounting will not be in a court of law but … before the Judge of all judges … a Judge who will not be mocked.


    28. Ray on September 18th, 2008 11:11 pm

      Aruba still does not understand. If they will resolve this case we all go away and leave them alone.


    29. Ray on September 18th, 2008 11:35 pm

      I have been watching the stock market Today and If we have another few days like the last two, nobody in the northeast will have the money to go to ARUBA. During the recession of 2001 ARUBA lost about 40 percent of its tourist business.


    30. Vicki on September 19th, 2008 7:03 am

      DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED…There WILL still be Justice for Natalee. Count on it…Personally, I really at this point want her to come home where she can rest in peace. The ppl that did this to her[all of them] will be punished in a far worse way than anything we could think of…and believe me, I REALLY can think of ways to punish them..LORRAINA BOBBIT STYLE…however…I JUST WANT NAT TO COME HOME….

    34. Sharon Chicago on September 19th, 2008 11:30 am

      I like the fact that they focus on “where the investigation went wrong”… This helps to reinforce the fact that because the ALE did not
      do it’s job correctly that the suspects/murders are still free.

      This report will only make Aruba look bad again,
      so that is good!

      No Richard; Nothing; They (media)are so far in the dark that a field of wind generators could not supply them sufficient electricity for the crystal ball they need.
      But we now know the turncoat Steve Cohen is a news reporter for some station in San Diego, CA

    36. Justice on September 19th, 2008 12:37 pm

      there was nothing really new in this documentry. I wish they had asked some tough questions of Mos and the other guy. Like why were the two security guards arrested and held. When the Aruban police and gov’t knew that they were innocent? becuase they has already seen the video tape proving the suspects had lied to hinder the investigation? One would wonder why the suspects and friends aren’t doing jail time for obstruction. Why didn’t they ask why commissioner Van der Stratten was put in charge of the case. When he found out from ex commissioner Zandamm. That he shouldn’t have been. it’s not work for a commissioner. Why did they keep interviewing Steve Cohen? Feel free to e-mail A&E http://www.aetv.com/global/feedback/contact.jsp?site=AETV.com&NetwCode=AEN

    37. Maggie on September 19th, 2008 3:37 pm

      Keeping Natalee’s name in the news is great,, but this was just a joke.. Steve Cohen, a paid AHATA spokesman.. with access to police files, who said these 3 did something terrible to your daughter and then gave a speech that said 2 of the 3 had sex with Natalee and expected them to be charged with rape and murder. NO evidence.. what a joke. Well, when you wait 10 days to collect any, I could make a lot disappear also. How could anyone see that Deepak said he told investigators that Natalee put her hands down his pants to throw off an investigation before there was one, say he got on his computer to establish a timeline before it was even know Natalee was missing, the fact the girl is dead is not good,,,how could they say these 3 didn’t know what happened to Natalee that night and wasn’t a part of it?

    38. Richard on September 20th, 2008 7:50 am

      I’m told that media whore Steve Cohen is working for some San Diego newspaper or TV station, or something like that.

      Who knows … maybe he played some part in bringing about this innocuous performance, which, I’m told, asked nothing new and skirted around the issues of Aruba’s cover-up.

      Not all lions leave their den
      Some of the lions live at home?
      I would interpret as where Natalee was taken some of those involved actually live there.
      SM said that three years ago but it makes more sense lately.

      Arawaks often go to play in small houses of Babylon with the offspring of the Elders.

      Arubans play (have sex) in small apartments/motels/cottages owned by the Dutch with the children (teens) of those involved (adult males)
      Small houses= motel=apartments

      Who owns Matty’s????
      Who owns the Lion’s Den????
      Who lives there?????

    42. kaye on September 22nd, 2008 7:56 am

      i was looking on another site and saw this posted to an old 2007 SM blog……
      “It never fails to sicken this writer that our nation…our world daily deteriorates even further due to the depths of deprivation that the liberal disease is so happy to engage in: This writer feels a fathomless sorrow and pain for the Holloway family due to all surrounding Natalee and though this writer is sure to be called every sort of name and diagnosed under some pychosis by the whack jobs in the world it is my indelible belief that Natalee is very much alive….. One does not have to possess but a mere tiny amount of intelligence to see that the apparent true lack of concern by Aruban authorities as well as Vandersloot,etc re: all of this is due to fact that not only do they know there is no Murder case but as well there will be no answers otherwise re: Natalee due to fact that there are those involved that range to highest levels of Aruban government and since White Slavery is big business for them. Aruba is but a hub for the White slave traffic…at least it was before Natalee’s mother had the guts and determination to fight for her daughter…and now due to the unwanted attention such traffic has been rerouted for time being. Why would anyone in Aruba including Vandersloot and company worry about a murder charge when they all know that somewhere within the sad hell of white slavery this beautiful girl exists: This writer has no doubt that she is alive however she is probably so very induced by drugs that she is even unaware of who she is anymore or too mentally/emotionally depleted to know or care anymore. Note* This is an extremely beautiful young American girl and within White Slavery trade girls of this caliber are quite literally worth their weight in gold and there are many of whom will pay that weight. My entire heart,soul,and prayers go out to the Holloway family and I really believe that if you keep your focus on God above and your daughter below then you will find her! People the only way to combat this sadness as a whole is to simply land blow upon blow to the economy of places like Aruba until they are dying financially from lack of tourism dollars: Never allow your daughters to travel to places like Mexico,Aruba, Venezuela,etc unless they are in full time company of youselves or other trusted/known family and friends because this crime that has happened to Natalee and her family is as well a market and it is a market that never closes. It is sad that in this once great nation the disease of liberalism has spread to where contagions such as homosexuality,pedophilia,abortion,drug use,drug dealing,etc,etc is seen as a right by so many truly useless beings and where the true right to exist in a normal world where things are God ordained and otherwise moral and correct is considered an infringement on their “rights”!

      boycott aruba as if your daughter’s life depended on it. j4n

      Someone mentioned the fear in Aruba, and how right they are about that!

      This, being a witness in the U.S. with an attorney, is what the Kalpoes wanted.

      I came on here and told you that Aruba was ready to talk and the next headline was about a mouse trap.

      The Kalpoes ran like scared chickens,

      when all they wanted to do was to talk.

      The investigative producer of the show

      died of a heart attack…

      I have ALWAYS welcomed the Kalpoes to the U.S…

      This is what Shango predicted would be the end of the saga

      and they would be granted ammunity.

      But, we have taken a long route to the same venture.

      If there were EVER a good time for the Kalpoes

      to come public with their ‘truth’…

      It is now.

      God Bless Beth Holloway and her angelic heart

      that shines like a beacon for the world to see.

      For it is upon her faith

      that she bases her hope.

      The girl at the rocks is in the turtle garden,

      off the shore in an inversion of rock.

      She looks up and this is what she sees…

      She is at peace.

      The turtles… they come and they go.

    46. Patti on September 22nd, 2008 3:40 pm

      Absolutely, Natalee could still be alive!

      was more important than anything…

      umm i think that natalee is still alive and the boys that had something to do with this crime aren’t telling because of the consequences they will face in the future does anyone else believe that she could still be alive? i mean did they find her body? because i never heard about that…

    52. vlo on April 29th, 2009 4:29 am

      interesting and sad story. but nobody has asked the question logically, and that is why in sam hill would an 18 year old girl ditch 124 of her highschool friends on a trip to another country with 7 chaperones to drive off with two strange men? and hang on to this joran dude like he’s the only dude in aruba…why would a smart young woman do that? why on earth didn’t her friends talk her out of that? i say they were not her real friends or didn’t care much about her…what a shame, but why on earth would she go away with strangers drunk or high…?
      SM: Stop blaming the victims and blame the criminal. I guess rape victims were asking for it too? And how dare those parents move into neighborhoods with sex offenders. They should have all known that predators were around every corner.

      Those that want to commit crimes do. They target.

      Put the blame in its proper perspective. When it comes down to it … it is the criminal who is to blame for murder.


    53. vlo on April 29th, 2009 4:33 am

      why would an 18 year old girl visiting another country with 124 of her friends and a circle of about 7 friends, ditch her friends and go off with three strange men by herself? what was up with her friends? not her real friends, that’s for sure. what was this girl thinking? why didn’t she take better precautions? nothing like this happened to any of the other girls, because they were smart…you don’t go wandering off in the middle of the night with strange men and you are under the influence. too sad this story is for her family.
      SM: Because there are things called date rape drugs and when one is targeted by predators … what would you think occurs? After all, the 3 are on records as saying nothing like this ever happened before in all the other times it was done.
