Natalee Holloway Cold Case Exhibit Unveiled at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington by John Walsh & Beth Holloway


The never ending battle for “Justice for Natalee.”

The spotlight has once again been shown of the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.  Alabama teen Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba on May 30, 2005. After all the media spotlight, after all the arrests, the searches, the interrogation,  the suspect lies and admissions of guilt there have been no new recent leads in the case. The National Museum of Crime and Punishment is helping to put the case back in the spotlight as Natalee’s case is the newest addition to the Unsolved Crimes exhibit.

Beth Holloway attended the unveiling Monday afternoon in Northwest Washington to honor her daughter.

“In some way I hope Natalee’s case can represent a lot of these young adults that are missing and are most likely murdered,” Holloway told Fox 5.

John Walsh, the host of Fox’s America’s Most Wanted, stood by her side at the museum. Police determined a deceased drifter decapitated Walsh’s 6-year-old son. The announcement last December, brought to close a case that has haunted the Walsh family for more than two decades.

“Finding him murdered so horribly was unbearable but at least that ended that chapter of our lives. Beth Holloway doesn’t have that closure,” Walsh said.

Some of the other missing person cases that Beth Holloway referenced and the sad an unfortunate long list. There is an endless list of young adults missing.

      Aruba is actually really fun, you should try it some time.

      That aside, this is a nice way to use the unfortunate situation to alert others about the importance of safety and, especially if you’re alone, staying with people you know and trust.

      I was very impressed with the words chosen by Beth Holloway. I stand behind every word she said and hope that it won’t be long before Natalee’s case is solved and her exhibit can be removed. It’s an impressive display and one that will keep her disappearance in our hearts and minds until that day.

      ~God Bless the Holloways.

      Keep up the good work Beth. Don’t ever give up on justice for Natalee. Aruba will never do anything but Joran will still get his one day.

      Arrogant s.o.b.

      God Bless Nat, she was the best one.

      Keep kicking Sloot right in the lunchbox.

      Hey Morta, the Internet is very small, isn’t it?

      I didn’t know such a thing or place existed in our nation’s capital, but it’s definitely for a good cause. We know that Beth and Dave’s continued fight for justice, as well as their efforts to find their daughter, has not and will not be in vain.

      Some days, I would be afraid to go to Aruba. When I consider what’s happening in my own country, Aruba doesn’t look so bad…

      Aruba is a much different place today.

      Personally, I think they just need to GET OVER IT.

      All hotels are for sale ‘
      May 12, 2009

      Rob Smith at the opening of tourism conference ATCA end of April.

      ORANGE CITY – “All hotels are for sale if the price is good enough.” This responds Director Rob Smith tourist organization Ahata on rumors in the media that a large hotel for sale would be. He says nothing about specific marketing plans of one of the connected hotels. “I know that there is a legal play in Westin Resort. Dealing with disputes between shareholders, not the sale of the hotel. ”

      As last at the annual tourism conference showed ATCA, the tourism experience of the economic malaise. So feared is a very bad second quarter. That is not good with the economy also agrees Smith. “The Marriott hotel, for instance, since last November the number of contract workers decreased by about 25 percent.” That equates to approximately 500 people who do not contract anymore.
      The Ahata director says that many hotels, on a voluntary basis, staff are trying to stem. Especially staff at the retirement age is, often receives a package which they previously could stop working. “This is completely voluntary,” stressed Smith. Until now, there is no ‘forced’ redundant cases in the hotel sector.

      Carpe says…”Keep kicking Sloot right in the lunchbox!”
      Damn right!

      Joran, Paulus and Mother-in-Denial Anita—Sorry, but you SUCK so bad it hurts. Over 4 years have passed and you KNOW what your Son did, yet you keep silent to protect his lame Ass. How’s the long distance phone bill to Thailand/Singapore where ever the hell he is these days treating you? When the media breaks the stories about his continued alchoholisim and drug abuse, his disgusting treatment of females (prostitution and human trafficking involvement “girls for sale”) …..just wondering………….Does it make you proud ? Don’t think we Americans will ever forget.

      The longer this case is kept in the National Limelight (in whatever fashion) the better!

      Ahata fears for future tourism
      May 15, 2009

      The future of tourism is, according to director Rob Smith Ahata not rosy.

      ORANGE CITY – The government must present the tax and labor technical revisions to adapt, otherwise, the future of the tourism industry of Aruba danger. This said Rob Smith, director of Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (Ahata) following the appearance of the first quarter and registered reservations for the coming period.

      The prediction is that the national income by the slump in tourism 100 million florin less, compared with the same period last year. Capacity utilization in the first quarter fell by 16 percent. And while the first quarter is the high season, which usually enough revenue generated to the lean period of low season without a problem to come. Ahata The director points out that the timing of this crisis as a result of the current downturn in tourism worldwide could not be worse for a large number of hotels on the island. The hotels have together in the past three years more than one billion florin invested in innovation of their products. “It is normal for hotels to five to seven year investment in renewal of the tourist product of Aruba. Now we are about three years of the next cycle. If our hotels have a double blow with the inability to recover from the debt of the previous investment round, plus higher operating costs and taxes in an already weak economy, it must be said that the future of our tourism industry is anything but rosy look. ” This is Smith the new technical employment and tax regulations that the government is preparing to enter, based on the economic situation before the crisis. -

      Sunday, Feb 28th,2010
      My prayers are still with you. It’s incomprehensible what your family has been and still going through. Keep at it to find out what happened and to find those people responsible for their actions…or lack there of.
      On a personal note here in West Michigan, our police have put together a cold case team,yes, just like the TV show, and have solved and brought to justice, people that have committed personal injury crimes as far back as thirty decades.
      The point is… I sincerely hope that you and your family find a resolution to this tragedy. My prayers are with all of you.
      Sincerely, Lynn

    17. Lynn White on February 28th, 2010 2:37 pm

      Sorry about thirty decades in my statement….I meant three deades…and they did solve some. I just wanted to stand corrected.
