      Tim Miller criticized Beth Holloway. Just because you disagree, doesn’t mean that it was a verbal attack.

      In fact, he held back….as one can plainly hear in the interview.
      SM: no, it was a verbal attack. I would call it the same way and I have in the past when individuals attacked Tim Miller.

      Grow up and get rid of your PC nonsence. Tim Miller is my friend dude, it was a verbal attack and he owes Beth an apology.

    2. Janet (Tamikosmom) on September 23rd, 2010 7:28 pm

      In THE interview … Steph and Tim question Beth’s motives in regards to the face to face with Joran because of the presence of Peter Devries … an investigative reporter. They claim Beth’s presence in Peru was financial motivated as there was a documentary in the works.

      Does Tim forget a Dateline crew accompanied him when he first boarded the Persistence and stayed by his side until he embarked?


      Kyle Kingman – Field Project Manager, Geophysical Engineer and Marine Geologist – Responsible for side scan sonar acquisition, digital processing, analysis, and target identification.

      Kyle Kingman:
      Dateline (Tim Uelinger) had an agreement with Tim Miller to ‘do a story to tell about and help promote TES and give TM recognition, and perhaps a 10 minute side-line story on Natalee along with 11 other missing persons. Dateline tagged along with TM for a while pre-NH search. They (TM and Dateline) came on the Persistence between 15-Dec and 30-Dec.
      SM: This is true and before there was Dateline, Tim & TES agreed with SM to provide us some updates from time to time, maybe an interview with dana, some pics. Stuff that we had always done with Tim and TES from the outset.

      SM got nothing. Guess thats what happens when you sign an exclusive for $’s.

      Larry King Live – June 29, 2005
      TIM MILLER, DIRECTOR, TEXAS EQUUSEARCH: We’ve taken this case so serious and we’ve loved this family so very, very much and they became our — they’re our family. Natalee is my daughter now.

      Steph Watts – September 20, 2010

      “The face to face meeting with Joran van der Sloot? Was it a journey for justice or a mission for money?” (para)

      “Those who have profited from the murder of Natalee Holloway; the murderer, the media and Natalee’s mother.” (para)

    5. Janet (Tamikosmom) on September 23rd, 2010 8:08 pm

      Dana: “I’m a city boy.”

      Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan – LOL

      Thank you Dana, Red, Klaas, Blink for all you do. Thank you to all Monkeys who had the courage to call in. You all did great. I had good intentions of picking up that phone but … when the time came … I chickened out.

      Good Night

      Please tell Beth Holloway that I have twin girls age 18. They graduated this year from High School. When it came time to plan a Senior trip, I made it clear to my girls that I wouldn’t fund raise or allow my girls to go on an Aruban trip. They talked with their classmates, and they all decided to go to New York City. They had a wonderful time, and the Chaperons were all over them. They came home safe and sound. This is because I heard Beth Holloway loud and clear. Mr. Miller you made a mistake. You are a man that does great work, and we all hope that people like you and Beth Holloway continue to be helpful.

      here’s something interesting,it’s all about our good friend aruba.the place where the government encourages citizens vacation. …………………………………………….

    9. Lisa in Maryland on September 24th, 2010 10:34 pm

      Watts up with this is Steph and Tim just aren’t feelin the Luv!

    10. Jumper on September 24th, 2010 11:53 pm

      Can someone send Charlierat a case of Pepto Bismol before he soils his pants.

      Despite what Tim Miller said, doesn’t change the fact that Natalee Holloway is still missing and she disappeared on Aruba.

    11. Greg the Mongoose on September 25th, 2010 4:25 pm

      The resentment towards Beth Holloway is just blind jealousy. Tim Miller searching for missing children has taken its toll. Helping others can wear you down. Not appreciated and forgotten.

    12. NGBoston on September 25th, 2010 6:23 pm

      So sad that a Man who we all thought to have proven himself as someone who was sincere, and had a heart huger than Texas had to make comments like this.

      Everyone knows that Texas Equusearch is reputable and devotions thousands of their own funds (most all of which are derived from Private donations) to the noble cause of assisting families in finding lost loved ones.

      I agree with #11—perhaps it is time for Tim to take a little break? He also got royally screwed and dragged in to the middle of the very messy Caylee Anthony Case, I do believe he is burnt out.

      The comments that were made towards Beth Holloway were purely related to some jealousy I feel over $$$. Why, Tim—why?

      Still think he is a good man, though. Every one screws up every once in awhile.

      Beth Holloway has devoted her entire life now to educating other parents and Americans about what to do to promote safety when traveling abroad. I applaud her for carrying on her work—and after the BIGGEST SACRIFICE a Mother can make (losing a child you brought in to this world and fighting a corrupt Political system)—why should it be a big deal whether she is getting paid to be involved in another documentary for television or not?

      Point is- Natalee is still missing and the answer lies within the walls of Castro Castro. If I were in Beth’s shoes—I would do whatever it takes to keep the story alive and still buzzing in the limelight. Beth Holloway will not rest peacefully until the remains of Natalee are brought home.

      We Stand by the Girl. Love you, Beth!

      *** Justice for Natalee & Stephany ***

      Viva Peru! Joran Van Der Sloot is a dead man walking. Let’s get the truth once and for all out of the Little Sporter before someone gets to him.

      Tick tock Tick tock Time is running out on Joran’s Clock!

    13. stlouisgirl on September 26th, 2010 12:21 pm

      Unless Tim Miller has no skeletons in his closet, he should be careful about throwing stones. I sincerely down he would want all those skeletons to be made public.
      I would also like to ask Steph Watts, how much he money has has personally donated to TES as he ask others to do? Has he paid his own travel expenses while traveling with Tim & TES or has TES paid for those? What did Steph & Tim do that got them kicked out of the San Diego search? Why did TIm take it upon himself to make an announcement to searchers in KY that the young womans remains had been found, while that mother was in the room. The remains, while probably hers, had not been positively ID’d & since when does Tim do death notifications? A kinder thing to do would have been to allow LE along with a minster, tell that mom in private. I no longer support TES When all is said & done, many dirty little secrets will come out.

    14. melonie on September 26th, 2010 7:52 pm

      #10 Jumper he’ll be soiling his pants when he finds out what his new bestie Tim Miller really thinks. I’ve talked to Tim before what he said to Watts was all bullcrap and Tim knows it. Overblown egos is what it was.

      Red have Dana listen to all of Watts other podcasts with Tim and then do a show with him, he needs to explain himself. He owes it to Beth. Have Dana ask Tim point blank about the contradictory things he said. Have Dana ask Tim point blank if Beth ever helped him with fundraisers. Have Dana ask Tim point blank how many donations Equuisearch got from people on
      behalf of Beth and because of Nat’s case. Have Dana ask Tim point blank if he is still convinced that some of the officials in charge at the time Nat went missing were corrupt and covered up her disappearance. Have Dana ask him point blank if hes still convinced that big sloot was part of that coverup. Have Dana ask Tim point blank when they are planning on going back to continue the Persistence ocean search. Ask Dana to ask Tim point blank if he has enough money yet to go back and if not where he’s hoping to get the funds that they need to go back and finish. Have Dana ask Tim point blank about the 1.5 million Tim said they collected so they could go back to finish the ocean search. Should make a good show.

      Did Jossy Mansur cover the search by the Persistence and the discovery of the fish trap in his newspaper? Did he mention that the evidence was taken by the ALE? Since his son was on the Persistence Jossy should have had a first hand account of everything that happened. Could someone tell me where to go to find Jossy’s coverage of what happened with the Persistence?

    16. cvc on October 2nd, 2010 9:48 am

      I have to assume from the silence that Jossy Mansur did not cover the findings of the Persistence…How strange is that? I mean, being a champion for Natalee and all…

    17. cvc on October 4th, 2010 10:22 am

      On October 3, 2010 Tamikosmom stated on the SM forum that she could not issue a “pass” to anyone who had a relationship with anyone with an “Aruba agenda.” I believe she was refering to Dave and Robin Holloway and their relationship with Julia Renfro, Tim Miller, and others. I would say that partying with Anita van der Sloot constitutes the ultimate anti-Natalee, pro-Aruban agenda and yet Jossy Mansur is still a hero and a rock star on the SM site. I do not understand how this fact, (that Anita van der Sloot is still considered a family friend of the Mansur family, as stated on the SM forum along with photos) can just be ignored and treated in such a trivial way. I try very hard to look at this objectively and this just does not add up to me. I’d appreciate it if someone would explain it. I agree with everything everyone is saying about Tim Miller. I don’t believe he should have been given the hero status that was bestowed upon him in the first place by people on this website and elsewhere. He didn’t have far to fall in my opinion because he has never been professional, he has no credentials, and he has been given much more credit than he deserves. He is a search organizer and that is all. Jossy Mansur is not a journalist with credibility. Give these people the credit they deserve and nothing more.

    18. Lisa in Maryland on October 4th, 2010 2:43 pm

      You are right CVC – These fish are flipping! You are either are either with us or against us there is no middle ground! Aruba Sucks, Anita Sucks and Tim and Jossy are turn coats (and that sucks too)!

      Justice For Natalee and Stephany!

    19. cvc on October 4th, 2010 3:47 pm

      Hi Lisa. I just don’t think anyone in the business of finding the truth should be given rock star status unless they truly earn it. Someone said on the SM Forum that they are amazed that anyone is willing to let Anita teach their child since she raised a murderer and rapist who is currently in a foreign jail. Anita isn’t suffering any in Aruba. She and her youngest son are being invited to parties. Jossy Mansur’s granddaughter is a friend of the youngest Van der Sloot son. Everyone in Aruba is embracing Anita. Just check out the photos.

    20. Lisa in Maryland on October 5th, 2010 6:07 pm

      Hi CVC, I know, I’ve seen them, it’s totally disgusting! I wouldn’t want her teaching my children. Apparently in Aruba they don’t consider “Character Reputation, Credibility or Stability” when deciding who will be allowed to teach. If she was in the US they would have asked her to step down quietly or take a permanent leave of absence from that position due to personal problems and bad publicity and if she refused they would find a way to fire her. Maybe that sounds unfair but how fair is it that she is molding young minds? Why on earth would any school take on that kind of liability? Only in Aruba! As we have seen raising murderers is of no consequence there!

    21. cvc on October 5th, 2010 7:45 pm

      Apparently in Aruba raising a rapist and murderer makes you the life of the party and a socialite. Anita van der Sloot, in my opinion, ruled that house with an iron fist. Joran even said, in a statement to police in June of 2005, that in his family he had the “best contact” with his father. Makes me wonder first of all, what is up with that mother? and secondly, what are that father and son involved in together? From the looks of the Mansur party though it seems that everyone loves Anita. I can’t believe that the Mansur granddaughter is a friend of Sebastian. Apparently parents in Aruba don’t think they can say anything to their children about who their friends are. That explains a lot in my opinion. I know people who have been removed from their teaching position for a lot less than this in the U.S. What is Aruba’s problem with running these people off? Believe me the van der Sloots are still in Aruba because they want to be there. Seems to me they are still in control of things in Aruba.JMO

    22. Lisa in Maryland on October 5th, 2010 9:54 pm

      Well you know how they say it isn’t what you know it’s WHO you know and I suppose Paulus’ strong ties in the Netherlands pretty much guarantees the Van der sloots free reign in Aruba. I’m beginning to think they are like Aruba’s Royal Family with all of the prestige and privilege they are afforded there. So they really are the face of Aruba. What a waist! I’m sure they could find at least one worthy family on that island but then again it is Aruba!

    23. cvc on October 13th, 2010 11:38 am

      I noticed that they didn’t show Anita at the Aruba Film Festival. Doesn’t she have a crush on Richard Gere? Does Richard Gere know about the Natalee Holloway case? If he does then why is he at the Aruba Film Festival? So he has slipped so far down he has to do film festivals now? Isn’t that similar to making appearances at county fairs?
      It is so wonderful that Val has had this wonderful college experience. I wonder if he ever thinks about the fact that Natalee would be in medical school now? I wonder if he ever thinks about what all she is going to miss? Her college graduation, her engagement, her wedding, her children…I wonder if he ever thinks about her parents?
      To the person who posted the pics of the film festival on the forum–thank you so much for not making me look at Anita van der Sloot.
