Natalee Holloway Investigation: And We Wait for the News as to the Jaw Bone Found in Aruba

After all this time … did the seas provide us with the evidence that so many have been looking for in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway? Wouldn’t it be poetic justice if the seas willing provided the evidense in this case to set the record right and provide justice as they were the unwilling recipients of Natalee Holloway.

Every one waits on the testing of the jaw bone found in Aruba last Friday and whether it belongs to Alabama teen Natalee Holloway who went missing in Aruba in 2005 while on vacation. The bone was sent to Holland for forensic testing.

Aruba Papers Cover Joran Van der Sloot Suspected Murder of Stephany Flores Ramírez

How sad is it that five years after the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, there are some in Aruba that still place blame on Natalee Holloway’s family for the plight of Joran Van der Sloot. Makes me want to visit, NOT! Does any one wonder why people are still calling for a boycott of Aruba?


Vanderbilt – ’06

So how did the news papers in Aruba cover the story of not-so favored son Joran Van der Sloot and his latest exploits that have once again landed him in jail and being interrogated by law enforcement in the death of a girl? Because Aruba did not take the murder of Natalee Holloway seriously in 2005 and decide to prosecute her killer, Joran Van der Sloot was enabled to kill again. This time it was 21 year old Stephany Flores Ramírez in Peru. And Joran Van der Sloot was charged with extortion in the US.


Amigoe reported the man hunt and capture of fugitive Joran Van der Sloot as follows:

Justice in South America is in ‘hot pursuit’ of the fugitive Joran van der Sloot, according to the media there. The Chilean police confirmed Joran had crossed the Peruvian border into Chili on Monday May 31st. Apparently there is a hunt down going on in the Chilean harbor city Arica. Roadblocks around the city are to prevent him from escaping.

According to the Telegraaf, Joran has confessed the murder of the 21-year old Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramírez. The newspaper reports that during a telephone conversation, he admitted to having stabbed the girl to death. That telephone conversation was supposedly held with a Dutch poker-friend. Rumors on him committing suicide were buzzing about yesterday. However, these are totally unfounded.

Thankfully, we find out this little tid bit of information that the Netherlands has no treaty with Peru that “when” Joran Van der Sloot is found guilty of murder that he will not be able to serve his time in his home country. Instead Joran will be spending time in a Peruvian prison.

For that matter, there is no extradition treaty between the Netherlands and Peru, says Özlem Canel, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands. If Joran were to be arrested on Dutch territory due to an international wanted notice, it would be difficult to extradite him, she says. However, Ann Angela, spokeswoman of the OM on Aruba states that an extradition treaty obligates the person’s extradition. “But is could also occur on voluntary basis.” If Joran were to be arrested and ends up in the prison in Peru, there is no treaty with the Netherlands to let him serve his time in his home country.

The reaction in Aruba ran the spectrum of vile hatred of Joran to the sad and pathetic excuses and continued blame of Natalee’s family that we have come all to accustomed with Aruba. Anita van der Sloot,  Joran’s mother was shocked. Why Anita, because you figured that all the enabling and covering up of the Natalee Holloway disappearance and death by the late Paulus Van der Sloot would have taught your psychopath son a lesson?

Joran’s mother, artist and teacher Anita van der Sloot was shocked by the reports regarding her son, says the Dutch lawyer of Bert de Rooij in the Dutch press. De Rooij, who represented Joran in the Netherlands, states that the arrest and the new imputations have caused the family much sorrow. Meanwhile, others are very happy with the apprehension of ‘that psychopath’ as he is called on the streets. Reactions on the island on the murder and Joran’s arrest vary from ‘finally justice’ to appeals to castrate him, rape or even hang him.

Then there are those in Aruba that still blame Natalee’s family for the fact that Joran Van der Sloot has killed again. How sick are these people? That is correct, makes one really want to vacation in Aruba, doesn’t it?

For that matter, not everyone is convinced of Joran’s guilt. There are rumors circulating on internet that it’s ‘all very coincidental’. Everything is supposedly a conspiracy of the family of Natalee Holloway. For the time being, the government is not elaborating on whether Joran’s apprehension with all its worldwide publicity, has any consequences for the image of Aruba or the tourism.

Check out how Bondia covered the story of extortion. Then again, maybe readers only need to visit  Dilma Arends‘ of Bondia Facebook and see what that crack investigative journalist has to say about Joran Van der Sloot and the extortion.

Or maybe Julia Renfro’s Aruba Today where the front page is devoted to Richard Gere and a wedding on Eagle Beach, there’s some hard hitting journalism for you. You have to get to page 10 before there is any report of Joran Van der Sloot’s arrest.

Diario Aruba reported it as follows and looky here, front page.

Daily Commentary – Friday, June 4th, 2010 – Joran Van der Sloot Accused of Another Murder [2:15m]:| Download

Make sure to tune in Sunday night at 9 pm et for the Dana Pretzer Show on Scared Monkeys Radio when his guests … Jossy Mansur, Managing Editor of Diario Aruba, crime blogger Blink from Blink on Crime, Diane Fanning, Clint Van Zandt and Red from Scared Monkeys will be discussing the recent events with Joran Van der Sloot, prime suspect in the murder of  Stephany Flores Ramirez in Peru and the implications to the Natalee Holloway case.

SM Exclusive: Jossy Mansur of Diario Aruba Comments on Joran Van der Sloot Murder Allegations & Suspect in Death of Stephany Flores Ramirez/Natalee Holloway

If the media wanted to get factual comments from Aruba media and not state run spin, they need not have contacted Aruba Today and Julia Renfro … what they should have done is contacted Jossy Mansur of Diario Aruba for the answers as Scared Monkeys did.

The following is Jossy Mansur in his own words regarding the bizarre similarities of the two murders that Joran Van der Sloot has been accused of, Natalee Holloway in Aruba and Stephany  Flores Ramirez in Peru.

“The story came as a shock, not because it was unexpected, but because another girl became the victim of this very sick young man. His actions are clearly those of a psychopath. He should be taken off the streets so he cannot cause any more pain to other families, including his own. The thought that comes into my mind is that if the Prosecution in Aruba had pressed charges against him and he was taken to court and sent to jail, this other girl might still be alive. There are consequences to actions (or lack of them) that speak louder than any amount of words.

The coincidences are also mind-boggling: during a poker tournament, he meets a girl in a casino, like he did Natalee; the girl appears dead in a room that he rented in an upscale hotel; he is seen with the girl at the hotel by the personnel present; the girl appears dead two or three days later, on the 29th of May going into the 30th of May, exactly on the same date and possibly hour that Natalee was killed. And on the fifth anniversary of Natalee’s death! It is practically unbelievable!” (Jossy Mansur)

Scared Monkeys could not agree more with Jossy Mansur.  Had the Aruban authorities, LE and prosecutors, done their job … Joran Van der Sloot would have been off the streets. Instead, they combined incompetance, cronyism and corruption to allow prime suspect Joran Van der Sloot to skate on murder charges in the Natalee Holloway case and enboldened a psyciopath to kill again.

A special shout out goes to Aruba for not stopping this predator in his tracks when they had the opportunity to, even when he confessed. But some how the Aruba prosecutor just thought it was lies … what do you think now?

A question to Paulus Van der Sloot to the grave … If there is a body, is there now a crime?

Natalee Holloway Investigation: The Witness was Afraid to Come Forward & Aware that Paulus van der Sloot had Powerful Connections in the Prosecutors Office.

A 48 year old unidentified witness comes forward in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. He states that he did not come forward sooner because he was afraid. He was afraid of the consequences of his statements and the fact that Paulus van der Sloot had powerful connections in the Prosecutors Office. Seems that the witnesses suspicions were confirmed by the fact that Hans Mos refuses to do anything and is more concerned with discrediting the witness than listening to him. The cover up continues as a witness who has passed two polygraph tests is not considered credible by the prosecutor. Credibility is hardly a word that should even be uttered by LE or prosecution in Aruba.


However the witness was afraid to come forward to the Police and local Prosecutor, because of the prejudice in the Prosecutor Office, which is alive and growing each day.

The witness was afraid of the consequences of his statement, since he was well aware that Paulus van der Sloot has powerful connections in the Prosecutors Office.

Key witness reveals what happened 4:05 am at Monserat
Paulus and Joran were “looking” for something on the side of the road

(Full translation below)


ORANJESTAD(AAN):  Last week, DIARIO published the latest information regarding the key witness, who came forward to disclose everything he witnessed on May 2005 from his house, which is situated in the neighborhood of the Nacional Soccer field, close to the Monserat pond.

However the witness was afraid to come forward to the Police and local Prosecutor, because of the prejudice in the Prosecutor Office, which is alive and growing each day.

He did give a statement to the Prosecutor, but to certain extent. The more important and key details he revealed to the American investigators.
The American investigators listened very carefully to his story and immediately felt that he was telling the truth. They then asked him if he was willing to go to the States and pass a polygraph test.

The witness was tested by John S. Swartz, a renowned professional in this field, and the test revealed that he was telling the truth! Finally shedding some light on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005.

He’s Back & Naked? … Joran Van der Sloot Just Could Not Go Gentle into that Goodnight … Portrait of a Narcissist

WTF… At very few times have I been at a loss for words during the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. However, this might just be one of them. Please tell me that this pic has been fauxtoshopped. Joran Van der Sloot has portrayed all the classic signs over the past 3 years of being a sociopath and narcissist. I guess we should not be surprised as this photo spread appears to be no different.

So much for Joran’s trauma in dealing with the Holloway case. I am glad to see that Joran Van der Sloot has gotten over the pain, stress and strain of all the accusations hurled at him and is now able to enjoy himself and carry on his wreckless life.

Too bad Natalee Holloway could not pursue her life …




Not sure whether to make this a caption contest or a regular post … we will let the readers decide. All we can say is this kid is a walking time bomb without a concern or any respect for anything or anyone.

UPDATE I: Translation of Diario article. Jiran Van der Sloot continues to produce bizarre incidents, now in Thailand


ORANJESTAD (AAN) Recently, a dutch magazine revealed photos of Joran van der Sloot with his new American friend, having a party in Thailand.

He “posed” for the photo, drinking from a bucket full oa alchol, and also stark naked. He is anonymously partying with other tourists on the issland of Koh Samet, where tourists shot the photos.

“I am king of the Ocean”, Joran yelled, according to a witness, when he was abandoning the island on a speedboat. Joran supposedly put himself in the care of a psychiatric institution, for therpay destined to people who are stuck in normal life and confront problems of behavior and psychiatric problems.

An internet friend of Joran, Martin Bakx, in the recent past loaned Joran some money to save him from prison after he was caught with marihuana.

According to Bakx, Joran took 6000 Euros form his account.
