Beth Holloway on Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba: “There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn’t. But no answer at all is the most unbearable”


A mothers endless and tiresless search for answers …

Beth Holloway has been waiting for answers as to the disappearance of her daughter Natalee Holloway since she went missing in Aruba in 2005. No one has been more persistent, more engaged, more undaunted and more eager to hold Aruba, Holland and Joran Van der Sloot’s feet to the fire in her effort to get answers and “JUSTICE” for Natalee Holloway.

It has been a roller-coaster ride of emotions ever since Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba in 2005 when Natalee was last seen leaving Carlos n’ Charlies at closing with Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe. Following that fact of evidence the family of Natalee Holloway has received nothing but continues lies, questionable investigations, shoddy police work and obstruction from Aruba. 

Now suddenly, over five years later there may be a break in the case of missing and presumed murdered Natalee Holloway. After all the searches in Aruba on land, in the ponds, in the landfills and in the ocean … a jawbone has been discovered on the beach near the Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort. Since the discovery, the news has been released by the Aruba prosecutors office that the bone is that of a young woman, now the focus shifts to whether it actually belongs to that of Natalee Holloway.

The revelation that the jawbone belongs to a young woman has lead to Natalee’s mother to release the following statement:

“There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn’t. But no answer at all is the most unbearable. We appreciate everyone’s loving care and concern and are anxious about the developments.”

However, as the DNA and dental tests continue on the jaw bone found in Aruba, many speculate as to whether the remains discovered are in fact Natalee’s, when the Dutch will release the information and what is any prosecution will come out of Aruba against Joran Van der Sloot. The Aruba prosecutors office was quick to make a comment that the jawbone was that of a young female; however, has been silent since and stated that they are not willing to make any further comments.

The partial jawbone found by American tourists on the beach near the Phoenix Hotel last week Friday, belongs to a young female. At any rate, that’s what American media are saying, who base this on comments from field officer Peter Blanken. He is currently in the Netherlands and was not available for comment this morning.

Meanwhile, the Public Prosecutor (OM) here does not wish to comment on the case and says one will wait for the result from the Dutch Forensic Institute (NFI). Whether Blanken had indeed told the American media that it regarded a jawbone of a young female, solicitor general Taco Stein could not ‘confirm or deny’ this morning. “As I have not spoken to him yet, I do not know what he did or did not say. Our viewpoint remains that we wait for the result from NFI,” Stein said before the Amigoe.

So what is taking so long with regards to the testing. Dave Holloway, Natalee’s dad has already sent dental records to Holland and they have had them for quite some time. ABC News has reported that sources have told them that “They [Dutch forensics team] almost certainly know by now the results.”

“They almost certainly know by now the results,” the source told ABC News.

“There are mixed signals,” the source said. “If it wasn’t her I’d think they’d come out and say it wasn’t her with all the fanfare.”

Aruban prosecutor Peter Blanken made headlines Thursday by telling CNN that the jaw bone was that of a young woman. Yet, after flying to the Netherlands for the testing, Blanken is headed home to Aruba, the source said, based on information out of Aruba.

“The authorities haven’t confirmed anything with me,” the teen’s father, Dave Holloway, told The Associated Press.. “It’s pretty much total silence.”

 So as we wait for the Dutch forensic labs to determine the results as to whether the jawbone is a match to Natalee Holloway, we are told by Aruban prosecutor Peter Blanken, the Forensic Institute said earlier this week that the announcement of the findings would be left to Aruban authorities.That does not give many pause for reassurance. Since the outset of this case, the Aruban authorities have acted in both an inept and corrupt manner. The cronyism on Aruba was in full swing as well as the tourism associations doing their best to cover up a crime so to prevent a backlash and boycott of Aruba.

The prosecutor said a forensic expert in Aruba made the initial determination. He cautioned that a final determination would be made by the Netherlands Forensic Institute in the Hague, but he did say the agency is “testing for a DNA match.”

Blanken is back in Aruba.  The Forensic Institute said earlier this week that the announcement of the findings would be left to Aruban authorities.

However, in the end we know that Beth Holloway will never give up the good fight and neither will many of those who have supported the girl, Natalee Holloway, and the family in their never ending fight for JUSTICE FOR NATALEE.

      Please God, let this family find the peace they need. If the jawbone is Natalee’s, then they will know that she is safe, in God’s hands.

    2. Betsy on November 21st, 2010 2:00 pm

      I will give them a little bit of latitude since it is the weekend, but the Aruban/Dutch authorities better have some answers this week. I am beginning to feel concerned that they are looking for a way to cover this up AGAIN! Last week they said they would know by Wednesday, then Friday, then silence.

      After 5 years of waiting they should have a ‘bat phone” set up with the Holloway family. To have requested Dave and Beth to provide dental records, and follow the request with total silence for days and days must be very upsetting for them.

      The cronyism throughout this process over the last 5 years definitely causes everyone to be suspicious of their motives in this case.


      If Unine and the slimball Paulus’ makeshift watery grave for Natalee is breaking up, there is a fairly decent chance that more evidence may make its way to shore, or perhaps they buried her deep in the sand and the storms have eroded it enough to begin revealing her remains.

      From a spiritual standpoint you cannot help but think that God was perhaps giving JVS one last opportunity to ask Beth for forgiveness and redeem himself. Of course, to nobody’s surprise, he sat there stone cold and talked only of himself.

      Now God is possibly bringing the evidence of this crime forward. No more chances for joran to save his sorry soul. All of his chances have evaporated and it looks like he will be condemned in the hereafter. Only God knows.

      There is no way I could know the heartbreak, fear, torture, disgust, anger, stress, mental anguish, the many different emotions, etc., that Natalee’s parents have felt in the past five and a half years. I have followed the case every step of the way and have felt many of the emotions they have (but of course not to the extent), just like so many others have/still do. Beth and Dave have done everything in their power to find Natalee and answers.

      If the Dutch authorities and ALE don’t give Beth and Dave an answer as to whether or not it is Natalee, we need to either go down there to kick arse and take names later, demanding answers, or send troops down to invade Aruba!!!

      God bless the Holloway family as the wait for the answer :-)

      ALE and the Holland authorities OWE Beth and Dave big time!!



    4. Estelle on November 21st, 2010 2:32 pm

      Hope the family gets some closure but what is all the fuss about the delay?

      Natalee’s disappearance isn’t top priority in The Netherlands, more pressing things need to be tested by the NFI than a girl gone missing 5 years ago.

      Please try and get some perspective people.
      SM: The fuss is that we have seen this game played before.

    5. downloadingdaddy on November 21st, 2010 2:55 pm

      Natalee Holloway was trending at #1 for 2 or 3 days on yahoo, there is no way we will hear from Aruba until there are less eyes on them, perhaps we will hear from them Wednesday evening or thanksgiving morning when most of us are busy with our holiday plans. :( But I will be watching closely then and I’d bet there will be a few other monkeys watching as well.

      Justice for Natalee.

    6. cvc on November 21st, 2010 5:03 pm

      I just don’t see any way that Aruba is going to see this as a major break in this case even if the jawbone does turn out to be Natalee’s. I’m afraid the chance for an actual criminal investigation, arrest, trial, and conviction in Natalee’s disappearance and murder ended in the first few days after she went missing. Evidence was washed out of the Kalpoe’s car, her body was hidden, the confessions were carefully destroyed, people were paid off by Paulus, and the cover-up began. I would just want my baby’s body home and put to rest on American soil. If those evil monsters in Aruba, who don’t have hearts or souls, have Natalee’s remains they need to send her back to her loving parents’ arms. I really believe that Joran will come to the end of his horrible life on this earth in Peru. I hope and pray that Beth can get her baby home, and then I hope she can let Peru seek the justice for both Natalee and Stefany. JMO

      Games, games and more games….Beth and Dave have been down road after road, route after route with no answers, just lies, spinning this family around like a merry-go-round….we already know Aruba doesn’t want to deal with this….have they even searched the area for more bones….well, we know the answer to that one. The big question is if this is part of Natalee’s remains what will Aruba do about it.

      Joran never expected Natalee’s parents to come to Aruba to find out what happened to her. From that day on he and the lies, the corruption continued. He said Beth ruined 5 yrs of his life, not so, he ended Natalee’s life. And put her family through living hell.

      He ended Stephany’s life, brutally murdered her. He wants to try and convince the court that he killed her in a rage. No, this was all premeditated for money and killed her in an unrecognizable way so Beth would have visions of what he could of done to Natalee. He also didn’t like the idea of the Natalee Holloway Foundation opening in Washington D.C and founded by Beth to aid families of missing children. So he murdered Stephany 5 years later on the date he murdered Natalee. That was all premeditated. He was 2500 miles from her body in Chili when they caught him. I hope he gets a full sentence for death, a full sentence for stealing her money and a full sentence for stealing her car. If he survives in the general population, then he’s facing charges in Alabama for extortion, being investigated in Thailand for human trafficking, and whatever else Aruba may do to him. HE’S EVIL !!!!!!!

      The Arubans are probably huddling with David Kock and Arlene Ellis-Schipper to see if they can minimize the impact of the evidence in order to help the rapist Kalpoes. They will probably say the DNA evidence strongly suggests it is Natalee, but does not rise the level of proof needed for a conviction, so they can’t prosecute the Kalpoes. One happy little island.

    9. Lisa in Maryland on November 21st, 2010 8:58 pm

      With Paulas dead and Joran being detained in Peru – Aruba is left holding the bag. It serves them right! Karma to them all!

    10. AYFIT on November 21st, 2010 9:29 pm

      JURON IS TOAST–I THINT THE KALPOES ARE BEING PROTECTED.ANYONE OTHER THAN MYSELF,NOTICE HOW LOW THEY ARE LAYING??????The jawbone should have been turned over to our FBI. Instead the only physical evidence EVER was turned over to the fox guarding the hen house..WTF

    11. brie. on November 21st, 2010 11:57 pm

      Everyone is sitting tight wondering what is going to happen…

    12. Cherry Simpson on November 22nd, 2010 12:09 pm

      I am praying for Beth and her family. She continues to be a real hero to me. A good example of a loving mother. I pray for justice and peace for Natalee.

      I’ve tried commenting several times today. Where are my comments?
      SM: They must have gone to the spam folder for some reason and been deleted. There are none of your posts there now and really nothing in the spam folder. Some times multiple special characters or links will trick the spam filter to think you are a spammer. Mostly it works good but sometimes it gets it wrong. (klaasend)

    14. P.M. 1 on November 22nd, 2010 3:23 pm

      I wonder if the bone comes back as Natalee, if the Kalpoe bros. will start singing – esp. knowing that Joran could turn on them in some sort of plea deal.

    15. NGBoston on November 22nd, 2010 4:40 pm

      #4- Estelle- You SUCK. And so does your post.

      How is that for perspective?

    16. brie. on November 22nd, 2010 5:31 pm

      There is a post on here that sounds like something Anita would say……!!!! My delicious sporter!!!

    17. Betsy on November 22nd, 2010 6:26 pm

      NGBoston, way to go! I agree with you 1000%.

      The Holloways have been waiting every day for over 5 years now. It has been obvious all along that the only priority the authorities in this case (Aruban and Dutch) had was to spend all their energy covering up the little sporter’s crime (Evil spawn of Paulus and Anita van der scum buckets).

    18. brie. on November 22nd, 2010 7:02 pm

      OK…we have been patiently waiting…where is the answer on the jawbone….it doesn’t take long to match dental records or to check the pulp inside of a tooth…Aruba knows and isn’t going to tell us…
      SM: They say they will release the information tomorrow via email to the press. I’m assuming after Beth and Dave are first notified. (klaasend)

    19. A Texas Grandfather on November 22nd, 2010 7:28 pm

      Never in their wildest dreams did the corrupt authorities in Aruba see the tenacity of a loving mother and father making such a difference. This is probably Aruba’s last chance to do the right thing.

      My prayers to the family that this time things will work out for them.

    20. NGBoston on November 22nd, 2010 8:22 pm

      @#17- Betsy:


    21. Betsy on November 22nd, 2010 8:51 pm

      SM: You are counting on their decency of the Dutch/Aruba authorities to provide Beth and Dave with the information first. Don’t count on it from a bunch of incompetent dumb a$$es who have done nothing but bungle this case from the beginning.

      Dave has been on the news reporting that he has received nothing but total silence from these dumb boobs.

    22. Pat in Alabama on November 22nd, 2010 10:50 pm

      #4 Estelle,

      Are you really Deepak? He and Urine always referred to NATALEE as “the girl”, or “a girl”. They didn’t want to think of her as a real person, just a girl, because in their world girls are just objects for pleasure.

    23. brie. on November 23rd, 2010 6:57 am

      It might also be Anita…she always referred to Natalee as That Girl…I wonder if the pimp club is still active and what they do to American girls…
