      Developing News: New information in the Natalee Holloway investigation

      Published: November 18, 2008

      NEW YORK (CNN)—Authorities in Aruba say they’re looking into new evidence that could lead to an arrest 3½ years after Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway disappeared on a senior class trip to the island.

      Aruban police are investigating two new tips they hope will provide the corroborating evidence they need to make an arrest, lead prosecutor Hans Mos told CNN.

      He would not discuss details but said police again consider Dutch student Joran van der Sloot to be the prime suspect in Holloway’s disappearance.

      A new witness has emerged, authorities say, who can place van der Sloot and his father, Paulus van der Sloot, near a pond on the island at 4 a.m. on the day Holloway vanished.

      The witness told authorities he saw a young man, wet from the chest down and wearing only one shoe, running along a road from the pond to a fast-food restaurant.

      The witness said he saw the young man and an older man driving slowly down the road in a red Jeep about 10 minutes later. The pond was not among those searched in the early stages of the investigation, Mos said.

      A second witness, a former girlfriend of Joran van der Sloot, also told police he made suspicious-sounding comments while they were on the beach. The witness, publicly known only as Celes, told police van der Sloot said: “Who knows? You may now be on the beach with someone who is able to get rid of a corpse.”

      In addition, Mos said, two other witnesses have come forward. He declined to discuss those witnesses, other than to say he is hopeful the case can be solved.

      “We are hoping to make a decision by the end of this year or early next year as to whether we will re-arrest [the younger] van der Sloot or not,” Mos told CNN.

      Also key to the investigation, Mos added, is a Dutch journalist Peter De Vries’ videotaped interview with van der Sloot. In the interview, van der Sloot acknowledges a friend helped him get rid of her body. Read how van der Sloot “lost no sleep” over Holloway

      Mos said he is confident that the tape, which he characterizes as a confession, is admissible in court. With the new tips and new witnesses whose testimony impeaches earlier statements by van der Sloot and his father, Mos said he might have enough evidence to solve the mystery of what happened to Holloway.

      The elder van der Sloot has told police he was at home, asleep in bed until 7 a.m. on the night in question. And, Joran van der Sloot has never been able to explain what happened to his tennis shoes, Mos said.

      Holloway’s father, Dave, said the new developments caught him by surprise.

      “Well, I really hope it’s true, because they even have Joran on tape confessing, and I don’t know what could be better than that,” he said.

      Van der Sloot’s family and attorney did not return phone calls.

      Natalee Holloway, 19, a senior at Mountain Brook High School in suburban Birmingham, Alabama, was a vibrant member of the school band’s dance team, “The Dorians,” which is similar to the “Rockettes.” She was a straight-A student who planned to study pre-medicine at the University of Alabama.

      She vanished in May 2005 while on her senior class trip to the island. She was last seen at the popular night club Carlos ‘n Charlie’s early on the morning her class was due to fly home.

      Her disappearance became the subject of a high-profile search and a massive media frenzy. Holloway family members and friends organized volunteer search efforts in Aruba that went on for months.

      Early missteps cost investigators valuable time and evidence. Police at first mistakenly arrested two men who had nothing to do with Holloway’s disappearance. And, investigators initially ignored information from witnesses pointing to the three young men last seen with Holloway that night.

      When Joran van der Sloot and brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe were arrested, they told conflicting stories. By that time, verifiable facts were hard to come by.

      Van der Sloot is a member of a prominent Dutch family in Aruba. At the time of Holloway’s disappearance, his father was a judge in training. Joran van der Sloot and the brothers Kalpoe were arrested and let go twice in connection with Holloway’s disappearance.

      While they were in jail, police and prosecutors sought corroborating evidence to piece together a motive and theory. They were not successful. Late last year, authorities closed the case without bringing any charges.

      “We simply did not yet have the corroborating evidence to take this to trial and win a conviction,” prosecutor Mos told CNN. “If we had a body even to determine cause of death, then we could piece some thing together.”

      In February, the videotape of van der Sloot’s taped admission surfaced on Dutch television. De Vries, a famed Dutch journalist, set up a hidden camera capturing van der Sloot talking about Holloway’s last moments and how her body was disposed of “like an old rag.”

      Since then, De Vries has set up another on-camera sting. It aired last week, showing van der Sloot meeting with undercover reporters who posed as Dutch sex industry bosses looking for Thai prostitutes to recruit to the Netherlands as sex slaves.

      In the tape, van der Sloot allegedly promises to supply Thai girls for prostitution in Holland and accepts 1,000 Euros as advance payment for his services.

      Apparently van der Sloot left the Netherlands late last year and has been living in Thailand for the last few months as a student.

      His whereabouts right now are unknown, but Aruban authorities are grateful for the tips that the Dutch documentaries have generated. They hope the tips will bring them closer to a resolution in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

      Per Hans Mos don’t sound he is grateful for anything to do with Natalee.. this was a statement he released …that is on gretawire

      Aruban Prosecutor Hans Mos
      by Greta Van Susteren
      Aruban prosecutor Hans Mos has responded to the latest in the Natalee Holloway case (and make sure you scroll down and read the blog entry preceding this one….pay attention to the part in orange text where I report about Mos.) Mos apparently agrees with what I wrote in the preceding blog about the AP story…but note the AP report is DIFFERENT from the information we will show you on Monday and NOTE that Mos has declined to review the material we have. Of course that is his right but if I were the prosecutor, I would want to consider any and all information in an open investigation.

      From: Howard, Cory
      Sent: Tuesday, November 18, 2008 5:16 PM
      Cc: Van Susteren, Greta
      Subject: sure you saw but just in case…

      In urgent…

      Per Hans Mos/Chief Prosecutor:

      He calls the latest press calls regarding the wire pasted below “much ado about nothing”. A girl who had a conversation with Joran van der Sloot in 2006 spoke to police in the Netherlands about 14 days ago. She told them Joran gave her some indications in which you might draw some conclusions he was involved. Nothing that can be investigated or proven. Mos called it, “just another statement coming from the mouth of Joran van der Sloot” who has given many different stories in the past. The police spoke with the girl in the Netherlands and what Joran told her is just another story about what might have happened but there’s nothing concrete. Mos added that Joran is a master in giving little pieces of what might have happened.

      Mos said that the line from the wire story which states- “The Prosecutors’ Office says a new witness claims the only suspect in the case confessed to her that he was involved in dumping Holloway’s body at sea”.-is an incorrect statement, that the witness did not say that in her statement to police.

      As for the status of the case, Mos said there is nothing new, no major developments and that they’re still trying to investigate every last lead. They’re trying to conclude the investigation against Joran. That doesn’t mean they’re closing the investigation in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, that will remain open until we close the case. Also, even if and when they close the case against Joran van der Sloot if they get new information, it could potentially be reopened.

      more lame statements from the prosecutor.

      too bad for him we are not going away anytime soon.

    5. dani MarieBernadette D'Angelo on November 18th, 2008 9:50 pm

      I find it eerie that so many people who have had anything at all to do with Casey Anthony, her family and this evil case, have been destroyed in some way by it.
      Dana is absolutely right, this has gone on far too long.

    6. earl on November 18th, 2008 9:59 pm

      is this groundhogs day?i feel like weve been down this road before…

    7. scott on November 19th, 2008 6:51 am

      Anybody have the email address of this clown Mos?

    8. Richard on November 19th, 2008 10:16 am

      I was told that Greta van Susteren, in her show last night, had Hans Mos on the line. I didn’t see or hear it, but apparently she came out and said that he wasn’t following up on the information that she was providing (she will give more details on a show Monday), and said basically that he wasn’t doing his job and that there was indeed a cover-up.

      We’ll see on Monday what happens.

      I put a post on her blog to remind people that the movement to boycott Aruba still is out there.

    9. Richard on November 19th, 2008 10:17 am

      Scott (#7) … Maybe send a written letter c/o Aruba Tourism Authority. Ask them to copy in Nelson Oduber, too.

    10. Richard on November 19th, 2008 12:57 pm

      Meanwhile, here’s a press release from the United Nations today. It seems that in BRITAIN, police have smashed a huge human-trafficking operation from Southeast Asia. It was the biggest such raid EVER in Britain, according to the story.

      Must be a different place from Holland … which can’t, or won’t, act against one criminal.

      British Police Smash SE Asian Sex Trafficking Ring
      Wednesday, 19 November 2008, 10:40 am
      Press Release: United Nations

      British police attempt to smash South-East Asian sex trafficking ring – UN report

      18 November 2008 – Police raids on several hundred buildings in the United Kingdom have recovered dozens of sex trafficking victims, mostly from East and South-East Asia, and led to legal charges against dozens of suspects, according to a United Nations report released today.

      The largest ever police operation to target sex trafficking in the UK recovered some 167 women and girls forced to work in the sex industry, including 13 children – the youngest just 15 years old.

      The UN Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP) reported that 528 suspects were arrested during the investigation, code-named Operation Pentameter 2 (UKP2), after UK police raided 157 massage parlours and saunas, and 582 residential premises across the country.

      Within a month after the arrests were made, more than 80 individuals were charged for a variety of offences and a number of others remain on bail while investigations continue, said the UN Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP) report.

      The UNIAP report also noted that the bulk of criminal activity of trafficking for sexual exploitation into the UK originates in South-East Asia, where victims are controlled by debt bondage. Most of the other victims came from Eastern Europe and were coerced into the sex industry through violence.

      The operation attacked suspects’ finances and assets as a strategy to cause maximum disruption to their criminal activities. Through UKP2 investigations over £500,000 (about $750,000) in cash has been seized and more than £3 million in further assets was initially restrained pending further investigation, but this figure may increase.

      UNIAP was established to facilitate a stronger and more coordinated response to human trafficking, in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS), comprising Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Viet Nam.

    11. Maggie on November 19th, 2008 2:28 pm

      Hans Mos isn’t going to do anything just like Janssen didn’t, because they’ve known since the night Beth arrived in Aruba..what happened to Natalee. I remember Beth saying the prosecutor told her they were investigating this as a sex crime involving these guys. Greta even came out last night and said it appears they are covering it up. I remember when she did that interview with Joran and was inclined to believe him, then went in pursuit of the Kalpoes, saying she wanted to talk to Deepak..even went to their home.

      She had Jossy on the phone last night..talking to him. He said the cops told them to turn the radar off the night Natalee disappeared. That video of Joran in the car.. and daury(Paulus)..they should charged him and his father.. also the Kalpoes for obstructing justice and lying.

    12. Richard on November 19th, 2008 10:25 pm

      Apparently some of Greta vS’s evidence is on videotape, and involves the payment of money.

      It will be interesting to see what happens on her Monday show.

    13. Richard on November 19th, 2008 10:26 pm

      Did Jossy Mansur reveal anything about Joran vdScum?

    14. Maggie on November 20th, 2008 1:56 pm

      Richard, Jossy was on again last night.. Dave was also by phone..talking about that witness that saw Joran covered in mud that night.and Paulus picked him up.and how the prosecutor… treated him much the same way as anyone else that has come forward.. No search of the pond. The guy passed a polygraph test. Greta told Dave.. that story..wouldn’t be excluded in what they found out.. She says she has video for monday night and a possible exchange of money. Greta is starting to see what many here have seen for years now.. Today..she is on it again with another story.. I will post it from her site…

    15. Maggie on November 20th, 2008 2:00 pm

      Greta’s comment and then click on the site and read the release from Mos.. just more bs..

      SOMEONE IS LYING TO YOU – take your pick !
      by Greta Van Susteren

      Someone is a big fat liar — either I am the big fat liar or the Prosecutor in the Aruban Prosecutor’s office. You take your pick! Am I lying to you? or is the prosecutor in this release? See below…a press release from the Aruban prosecutor’s office….I think this press release below is pre emptive (before we show you what we have Monday ) and an effort to cover one’s *********.

      This Aruban press release confuses (deliberately?) 3 matters. One is a Dutch journalist and his show, another is a recent AP report about a witness and then the third is OUR investigation which I have offered to show the prosecutor but there is no interest.

      It is a BIG FAT LIE to write in this press release below: “….The investigation led by this Office has been ongoing and, as has been done all the time, this Office and the Police investigate every new lead in this case…” They have NOT investigated every new lead — in fact they REFUSE to investigate. What are they afraid of? solving this? is this about tourism on Aruba? or what?

      If you watch ON THE RECORD at 10pm, you know that in the last two nights, as well as here on GretaWire, I have told you that we have NEW information. It is not simply a witness. I don’t know if our new information is the answer to this mystery or a wild goose chase — and I have repeatedly said that. I do know that NO DECENT PROSECUTOR who has ANY INTEREST in solving the case would ignore what we have and I have OFFERED to show the Aruba prosecutor first. He has subpoena power to check out leads. This is a missing woman and this is not a matter to simply ignore. Every effort should be made to solve this…and in this instance, we are serving up information to the prosecutor that he has zero interest in looking at.

      I talked to the prosecutor TWO WEEKS ago (not July if the press release below is referring to me.) I offered to meet him 1/2 way…he said he does not have time during the week…I offered him MY weekend, ..he said he does not work weekends…and he has a vacation coming up. In my phone call to him two weeks ago I offered to show him what we have NO STRINGS attached…I said I was NOT asking for anything in exchange…not even an interview from him. Go figure!

      But here is your question: who is lying? take your pick…the prosecution in Aruba who says it is following up every lead? and this is an ongoing investigation? or am I lying when I say we offered new information to the prosecutor to follow up on and he simply refuses. And yes, we will show you what we have on Monday and you can decide: should this be investigated?

    16. Maggie on November 20th, 2008 2:03 pm
    17. Maggie on November 20th, 2008 2:05 pm

      What a joke too when Mos says in that release that he keeps the family informed.. Beth was on a few nights ago and said she’s been told nothing..
