Back in October 2009 the Muldowney’s were on a cruise that stopped in Aruba. They went on a scuba dive while in Aruba but didn’t get those photos developed until January 2010. While looking through the photos they noticed something startling. They noticed what appeared to be a skeleton on the ocean floor.
I cropped the photo and removed the color for a closer look:
Dr. Michael Baden upon reviewing the photo said it could be a human skeleton and needs to be checked out.
Will Aruba do the right thing? What do you think?
UPDATE I: Natalee Holloway Body Found Pictures Add a Hype to Holloway Case
Authorities in Aruba have an “absolute obligation” to investigative an underwater photograph that may show the remains of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama high school student who disappeared in Aruba in 2005, a renowned forensic pathologist told FoxNews.com.
Dr. Michael Baden, a former chief medical examiner for New York City who has followed the high-profile Holloway case, said a photo taken in October by a Pennsylvania couple off the coast of Aruba could depict skeletal remains and should be treated as a potential lead.
“It could be a body,” Baden told FoxNews.com. “The odds are it isn’t, but it absolutely could be a body and there’s an obligation to pick it up and investigate.”
Aruban authorities are dispatching a dive team to investigate a Pennsylvania couple’s underwater photograph that may show skeletal remains of Natalee Holloway, an Alabama high school student who went missing on the Caribbean island five years ago.
Ann Angela, a spokeswoman for the public prosecutor’s office in Aruba, said she was not authorized to say when or where the dive would take place, except that it will happen “in the very near future.” Officials likely will have the results of the preliminary investigation by Sunday or Monday.
The underwater photograph of the sea floor depicts a rough outline that the couple believes resembles a human skeleton, according to the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era, which first published the photo on Thursday.
