Natalee Holloway, Missing in Aruba: Does the Dean of Joran Van der Sloot Know More than he has Admitted?

Posted in: Aruba,Corruption,Crime,Education,Joran Van der Sloot,Missing Persons,Natalee Holloway

Recently in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Joran Van der Sloot stated that he Holloway_family_friends_headmasterconfided in a teacher at his school at what he did with Natalee Holloway and her disappearance. Joran Van der Sloot; however, did not provide a name. However, in making reference to a teacher at his school who he was close to, Joran did implicate another individual in obstruction and the cover up of a crime.

Many times when a sociopath tells a story there are bits and pieces of the truth mixed up with the multitude of lies. Was the part that Joran confided in a teacher at his school the truth?

VAN DER SLOOT: No, the first person I told was a teacher of mine, and then the lawyer.

VAN SUSTEREN: The teacher is?

VAN DER SLOOT: The teacher — it was a teacher from school.

VAN SUSTEREN: What’s his name?

VAN DER SLOOT: Yes. It was a teacher from school, that I had as a teacher.

VAN SUSTEREN: What did he tell you to do?

VAN DER SLOOT: To tell the truth.

VAN SUSTEREN: And what was his name?

VAN DER SLOOT: I can’t think of it right now.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know what, you do know it.

VAN DER SLOOT: I can’t think of it right now.

VAN SUSTEREN: Is it the teacher who was there when you and I did the interview back in March of `06?


VAN SUSTEREN: When did you tell him in relation to Natalee’s disappearance?

VAN DER SLOOT: I told him a couple of days after, at school, I think.

VAN SUSTEREN: Did you have a special relationship with this teacher?

VAN DER SLOOT: I had a very good relationship with him, yes.

Flash forward to December 1, 2008 to a Greta Van Susteren interview with Holloway family friends who investigate Van der Sloot’s Headmaster. Could the headmaster be the teacher that Joran was referring to in the interview?


VAN SUSTEREN: What did he tell you, Charlie?

DEBARDELEBEN: He told us some quite interesting facts, as a matter of fact, that Paulus and Joran had been there a day or two before, that Paulus was trying to explain with his son what had happened, and that he was trying to explain that his son had taken Natalee out to the light house, that she wanted to see sharks, that at some point she had fallen.

And he was just volunteering information, but also saying what a good boy Joran was and how the father was about to be a judge, and he was a very upstanding citizen of Aruba. And it was really apparent to us that he was doing the best he could to cover for him.

VAN SUSTEREN: Mitch, what was your impression of the headmaster. Did you get the sense that he was straight talking, or were you suspicious of him?

ENNIS: I was very suspicious because the first thing he said was she may have drowned, and the way these currents are they would carry her out to sea and we would never find the body.

He mentioned that the night she went missing, probably they could not tell that she came back to the hotel because the cameras were not working. How would he know these things unless he was coached into it?

And I was suspicious of what he had to say, because from day one this thing appeared to be a cover up. The police, it seems their main objective was to protect Joran, and the heck with finding Natalee.

VAN SUSTEREN: Why do you say that, Mitch?

ENNIS: Van der Straaten told us, he said “I don’t think I could arrest my best friend’s son. I am his godfather, and I honestly don’t think that he’s guilty. He is a witness.”

And I said this is strange. That is the last person who saw her. And he said, “We are working on another angle on that.” And that angle was the two black men that were security guards, they were going to try to blame it on them.

I felt like from day one we could tell that they did not want us there. They were very uncomfortable with us being around them because they were trying to cover it up.
