10 Years Later after Natalee Holloway Went Missing in Aruba … An Interview with Dave Holloway (VIDEO)
10 years later after the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, her father Dave Holloway speaks out about the past and present …
In his own words, Dave Holloway says he never would have dreamed it would be 10 years without answers to what happened to his daughter Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Dave says it is a parents worst nightmare and just wishes he had answers. He said during the interview, “I just can’t imagine three guys who are 17-18 years old that they could not be interrogated by police officers and not break em,”. The crime should have been resolved within the first 24 hours; however, between corruption, incompetence and bad police work, it was not. However, when a family goes up against “One Corrupt Island” and a system of cronyism of a connected lawyer and judge in waiting in Paulus Van der Sloot looking to protect his son and an island whose sole existence is based upon tourism, it was a near insurmountable nut to crack.
That is why when this case first broke, having previous knowledge of what Aruba was all about and what was important to them, Scared Monkeys wrote, ‘This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway.’
In a final word from Dave Holloway and looking at the case of Natalee Holloway, while there have been many promising leads that have come and gone throughout the past ten years, one thing that has never changed is a father’s love for his daughter.
“I just wish we had an answer.” Frustrations with the Frustrations have lingered for ten long years. Politics, money, corruption…. the story had all the makings of a soap opera played out on an international stage. “I just can’t imagine three guys who are 17-18 years old that they could not be interrogated by police officers and not break em,”.
He was back in Aruba recently after an alleged witness re-surfaced saying he saw suspect Joran van der Sloot with Natalee at a Marriot hotel which was under construction. But police in Aruba have quickly discounted his claims saying his story doesn’t match up with the construction timeline at the hotel. The witness said Natalee was dead and van der Sloot hid her body. He claims he didn’t come forward at the time because he was involved in illegal activity.
Interview with Natalee Holloway ‘s Father Dave Holloway Part 1
Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof Dismisses New Witness Jurrien De Jong’s Story that He Saw Joran van der Sloot Kill Natalee Holloway … Thinks De Jong is Lying
YOU KNOW SOME ONE IS PROBABLY TELLING THE TRUTH WHEN AN ARUBA PROSECUTOR AND JORAN VAN DER SLOOT BOTH SAY SOMEONE IS LYING.
Today, Aruba Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof dismissed the claims that new witness, Jurrien De Jong, told to Inside Edition that Joran Van der Sloot killed Natalee Holloway at a construction site in Aruba in 2015. Jurrien De Jong previously said, “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness. De Jong went on to say, “I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction. In about five minutes he came out with Natalee in his arms, and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor, and then he made an opening in a crawl space … I knew she was dead.” However, Eric Olthof does not believe the witness that has come forward, ten years after Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba. Why should any Aruba authority believe anything that anyone says that may solve the Natalee Holloway case? Hell, the previous prosecutors would not prosecute Joran Van der Sloot in the death of Natalee Holloway even after he admitted to the crime, not once , but twice.
Aruban authorities today dismissed claims by a man who says he saw what happened to Natalee Holloway 10 years ago.
Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof said he asked the Aruban police to look into claims made by Jurrien De Jong to Inside Edition that he saw Joran van der Sloot, the primary suspect in Holloway’s disappearance, chase her into a small building under construction. He says van der Sloot then reemerged with Holloway in his arms, slammed her body on the floor then made an opening in a crawl space.
He has previously told media this building is the Spyglass Tower of the Marriott Hotel in Aruba. “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness,” Jurrien De Jong told Inside Edition. “I knew she was dead.”
De Jong said he never went to the police because he was involved in illegal activities at the time. He says he has come forward now because of a recent TV report where van der Sloot claims he was part of an undercover operation in which Holloway was buried at sea. Holloway disappeared in Aruba in May 2005 during a trip with graduating seniors from Mountain Brook High School.
Earlier this week, the Daily Mail reported that van der Sloot also debunked De Jong’s claims. Van der Sloot’s attorney, Maximo Altez, said: ‘Joran doesn’t care at all about what is going on in Aruba, because none of it is true. ‘He told me he knows this guy. He’s a crack head, a f***ing liar, a compulsive liar. He’s homeless and wants money to buy drugs.”
Press release issued today by Ann Angela, spokeswoman for Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof:
“Even though Mr. De Jong has not presented more plausible proof of his claims (his current testimony is identical to the one he gave in 2013 to the Prosecutor’s Office), Chief Prosecutor Olthof commissioned the police to contact the management of the Marriott -considering the type of case, the importance of the case and the long duration of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway- with the request to supply information about the state of the construction site of the Spyglass Tower of the Marriott hotel on the 30th of May 2005,” Angela said in the press release. “In short: what was built and what was not yet built on that 30th of May 2005, the night of the disappearance of Natalee?”
Recently the Prosecutor’s Office received the requested information from the management of the Marriott based in Orlando. “From this information, it becomes indisputably clear that on the 30th of May 2005, no construction or building activities were started at the location that Mr. De Jong has specifically pointed out as the spot where Natalee Holloway would have been hidden and/or buried,” according to Angela’s press release. “More concretely: the foundation of the Spyglass Tower (that still had to be built at the time) and of the staircase of the Spyglass Tower was not in place. This means that Natalee Holloway could never have been hidden and/or buried there.”
“This leads to the conclusion that the claims made by Mr. De Jong of what he saw on the night of 30th of May 2005, cannot be correct, and that his testimony, considering the afore-mentioned, does not add to the solving of this case,” Angela wrote. “Further investigation (in any manner whatsoever) under the staircase of the Spyglass Tower will not lead to finding the body of Natalee Holloway.
In my opinion, why isn’t Jurrien De Jong’s story plausible? Just because Joran Van der Sloot murdered Natalee Holloway at the construction site of the Spyglass Tower of the Marriott hotel on the 30th of May 2005, does not mean that Joran left her body there permanently. His father, Paulus Van der Sloot, is much to intelligent to leave the body of Natalee at a location on land where she could potentially be found. Because after all as Papa Sloot chillingly stated so many years ago, no body, no crime. Natalee may very well have been killed at this construction site and then was buried at sea. Remember Joran Van der Sloot said, “It’s a big ocean”.
Authorities in Aruba say a man who recently came forward to say he saw Natalee Holloway being killed 10 years ago doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
But a press release issued Tuesday by Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof’s office debunked that claim, which investigators first heard in 2013. De Jong did not come forward sooner because he was involved in “illegal activities.”

Joran van der Sloot Dismisses New Witness Jurrien De Jong’s Account that JVDS Killed Natalee Holloway … Says ‘He is Playing with Family’s Pain’
OH THE IRONY, TALK ABOUT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK …
A new witness has come forward after all this time in the case of the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Witness Jurrien De Jong says, “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness.” De Jong further went on to say, “I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction. In about five minutes he came out with Natalee in his arms, and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor, and then he made an opening in a crawl space … I knew she was dead.” In response to these allegations, Joran Van der Sloot, the number one suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway, makes the following claim … the Holloway family to regards de Jong’s account of what happened to Natalee and says that “he [De Jong] is only playing with the family’s pain.” You don’t say, because Joran Van der Sloot would know all about cause the Holloway family pain. Natalee Holloway went missing on May 30, 2005 in Aruba and since then Joran Van der Sloot has done nothing but cause the Holloway family pain and especially Beth, Natalee’s mom. Joran has confessed multiple times to the crime and has never been tried for the crime, let alone convicted and found guilty.
How many times has this little punk lied and cause pain to the Natalee Holloway family? How ironic that he would claim that some one else is doing the same. Because of course, Joran Van der Sloot only has Natalee’s family at heart.
Joran Vander Sloot – 2007
Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba, is dismissing an account recently brought up by a self-proclaimed witness.
“Joran knows him,” his lawyer in Perú, Maximo Altez, told Fox News Latino. “Joran tells me this man is someone who sold drugs in Aruba to all of his friends.”
Altez said Van der Sloot urges Natalee Holloway parents to disregard de Jong’s account.
“He is playing with their pain,” he said. “Joran is not worried [by de Jong's story], he advises them to look into his background.”
De Jong told Inside Edition the Alabama teen, whose body was never found, is buried beneath a crawl space at the Marriott Hotel in Aruba.
Natalee Holloway Witness Comes Forward: ‘I Knew She Was Dead’
From prison in Peru, Joran Van der Sloot brushed off the latest allegation from Jurrien De Jong and called him a liar. Joran also said that he is only coming forward for the money. Hmm, Joran should know something about this. The once “little Sporter,” now convicted killer, has been charged in Alabama with extortion in connection with the Natalee Holloway case. Once Van der Sloot has served his 28 year sentence in Peru in the murder of Stephany Flores, Peru’s Supreme Court has okayed Joran Van der Sloot’s extradition to the United States to face extortion charges in connection with the death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005. Van der Sloot calls it all a lie. Well, Joran would know about lying, he is an expert in that. However, one thing is for certain, every common thinking individual knows that Joran Van der Sloot was behind the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005. Sadly, Aruba and its officials did not take it seriously and instead helped cover up and crime for their beloved tourism dollars.
Van der Sloot said through his lawyer he is not concerned by the new development.
“Joran says everything that man says is a lie,” Altez told FNL. “This is nothing new, and all this man wants is money.”
Van der Sloot told his lawyer de Jong was a well-known provider of marijuana and cocaine in that part of the island. “He sold drugs to Joran and all his friends,” Altez said.
Back in 2005, Altez said, De Jong came to his client and told him he had seen him bury Natalie. He threatened to go to police unless Van der Sloot gave him money.
“Joran always laughed at him,” the lawyer said. “Joran never gave him anything, he always took it as a joke.”
10 Years Later after the Death & Disappearance of Natalee Hollwaoy in Aruba … Will Witness Jurrien de Jong’s Story Pan Out, “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness … ” I knew she was dead.”
EVEN IF TRUE, WHO REALLY BELIEVES ARUBA AUTHORITIES WILL LOOK INTO THIS LEAD?
DAVE HOLLOWAY, BACK TO THE BEACH … Nearly 10 years later, after Alabama teen Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba, a witness has come forward who says he knows what happened that night. The witness, ” Jurrien de Jong, says “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness.” According to news accounts, Natalee Holloway’s father, Dave, has returned to Aruba to meet a man who claims he saw what happened to her 10 years ago. Dave Holloway brought a private investigator and cadaver dog to check out the potential witness’ story. De Jong further went on to say, “I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction. In about five minutes he came out with Natalee in his arms, and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor, and then he made an opening in a crawl space … I knew she was dead.”

Natalee Holloway was just 18 when she vanished while on a Mountain Brook High School graduation trip to Aruba where she went missing on May 30, 2005 and was never seen again. The last individuals that Natalee was seen with was Joran Vander Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers, Deepak and Satish, leavings Carlos & Charlies. All will remember the very first post that Scared Monkeys ever did on this missing persons case, ‘This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway?’ And sadly, this is what this lack of police investigation and island coverup was all about. Cronyism, corruption and coverup … how the island of Aruba and its officials covered up the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway to protect one of their own and their tourism dollars.
Much, much more to come.

Leidy Figueroa, Joran Van der Sloot’s Wife Says Her Husband was Stabbed Twice in Peru Prison … Just Twice, Damn!
Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus … Please, please let this story be true.
Leidy Figueroa, Joran van der Sloot’s wife says her husband was “seriously injured” in a stabbing at the Challapalca prison in Puno Province, Peru where Van der Sloot is serving a 28 year sentence fro the murder of Stephany Flores. Leidy Figueroa, and his lawyer, Máximo Altez, told told RTL Boulevard Monday that “the little Sporter” was stabbed twice by fellow inmates, leaving “wounds that are definitely 2 inches deep.”According to her account, Joran was stabbed in the shoulder and waist.
Figueroa, told the Dutch-language TV program that her husband, a Dutch national, was stabbed in the shoulder and waist by fellow prisoners. She also said she visited him Sunday in prison and smuggled out a bloody polo shirt as evidence.
Figueroa, 25, also gave Britain’s Daily Mail photos of blood-soaked white sheets that she claims were used to cover Van der Sloot’s wounds.
“Joran was stabbed many times in the stomach by other inmates, he was almost killed, I am scared for his life,” Figueroa, 25, tells MailOnline. “He’s losing a lot of blood but isn’t receiving any medical attention. He’s been very poorly, I have been trying to get the guards to take him to hospital.”
However, prison officials is calling her account an outright lie. Jose Perez Guadalupe, director of Peru’s National Penitentiary Institute, which oversees the country’s prisons, stated that Figueroa’s assertions were untrue and further labeled her a “compulsive liar. Hmm, imagine that, I guess we now know what the common bond between Joran Van der Sloot and Leidy Figueroa is.
Joran van der Sloot’s wife says her husband was “seriously injured” in a stabbing at the Peruvian prison where he is serving time for murder, but a top prison official is calling her account an outright lie, according to reports.
Leidy Figueroa, the Dutch convict’s wife, told RTL, a newsgroup in the Netherlands that is also a CNN affiliate, that van der Sloot was stabbed twice.
She further claimed that after visiting him Sunday at Challapalca prison in Puno Province, near the Bolivian border, where he is serving a 28-year sentence, she smuggled his bloody polo shirt out of the facility, RTL reported.
Van der Sloot was stabbed in the shoulder and in the waist, and both wounds were about 2 centimeters (three-quarters of an inch) deep, she told RTL.
Jose Perez Guadalupe, director of Peru’s National Penitentiary Institute, which oversees the country’s prisons, told a 24-hour television station that Figueroa’s assertions were untrue and further labeled her a “compulsive liar.”
He continued with an assault on her character, telling Peru’s Channel N, “For starters, no woman in her right mind goes to a maximum-security prison and marries the biggest killer there.”
One can just say this to Joran Van der Sloot when it comes to the damage that he has brought to the families of Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores, KARMA IS A BITCH.
If this story that Joran Van der Sloot was stabbed is true, I just have two question, what took the inmates in this prison so long to stab him and can we buy those involved a beer, or at least a pack of smokes?

Joran Van der Sloot, Convicted Killer of Stephany Flores and Suspected Killer of Natalee Holloway Marries Girlfiend Leidy Figueroa in Peru Prison … The Bride of Frankenstein
Bride of Frankenstein …
In just another example of the world has gone mad, convicted killer Joran Van der Sloot was married his Peruvian
girlfriend conjugal squeeze Leidy Figueroa on Friday morning at the Peruvian prison that the “Little Sporter” is being held for murder. John Barrera, Mayor of Ancón District, presided over the ceremony. How special, maybe his mom Anita could have a first dance to “Psycho Killer”. It gets even worse, Figueroa is pregnant with this dirt-bags child. Van der Sloot is currently serving a 28 year prison sentence for the murder of Stephanie Flores and is the prime suspect for all common sense thinking people in the disappearance and death of Alabama teen, Natalee Holloway who went missing in 2005 on Aruba.
A marriage made in Hell
Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway, married his pregnant Peruvian girlfriend Friday in a ceremony at the maximum-security prison where he is serving 28 years for murdering a woman he met in a Lima casino.
Van der Sloot, 26, wed Leidy Figueroa, 24, in a private ceremony. Prison officials prohibited video and photos during the midday nuptials and none of the groom’s relatives attended, said his attorney, Maximo Altez.
Wearing a tailored suit and dress shoes sent by his mother, Van der Sloot told his bride, who is seven months pregnant, that after he is released from prison, “‘I want to marry you again,’ and she told him the same,” said John Barrera, who officiated the wedding as mayor of the city of Ancon, where the prison is located.
Sick monster, Joran Van der Sloot
Just sick. This murderer snuffs out the lives of 18 year old Natalee Holloway and 21 year old Stephanie Flores and he is allowed to have a life, get married and have children. I wonder where Joran Van der Sloot wedding registry was … Murderers R Us? Maybe Joran and Leidy can honeymoon in Aruba?
We are still looking for confirmation as to whether Joran’s new wife took out the phrase “unto death do us part” from the wedding vows, for obvious reasons.
The Dutch national, who is serving a 28-year sentence for the killing of Stephany Flores — married a Peruvian woman named Leidy Figueroa on Friday morning, his attorney told CNN en Espanol.
The nuptials took place at the Lima, Peru, prison where the 26-year-old van der Sloot is being held, according to the lawyer, Maximo Altez. John Barrera, Mayor of Ancón District, presided over the ceremony.
Van der Sloot is expected to become a father in September, when Figureoa is due to give birth to their child together, Altez said.
But just like he won’t have a honeymoon anytime soon, van der Sloot won’t be around to change diapers after the baby heads home.
Even his mother these days refuses to have contact with Joran as she believes his is sick in the head. Ta think? Although she still is in denial that he had anything to do with the death of Natalee Holloway, she does believe he did murder Stephany Flores. Anita claims that days before he went to Peru, Joran was supposed to be committed to a psychiatric facility in Holland. Sorry Anita, Joran Van der Sloot did not need mental help after the death of his father or Nataee Holloway, this killer needed help long before that.

Imprisoned Murderer Joran van der Sloot to Marry 23 Year Old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, Pregnant With His Child … Weddings & Parenthood, Things Natalee Holloway & Stephany Flores Will Never Experience
Just one more vindictive poke in the eye to Natalee Holloway’s Family …
May 2005 Natalee Holloway goes missing in Aruba while on vacation with other teens from Mountainbrook, Alabama and Joran van der Sloot was and still is the primary suspect in all rational thinking people’s minds in her disappearance and death. Five years to the day that Natalee went missing, May 2010 Joran van der Sloot murders 21 year old Stephany Flores and later confesses to the crime and is eventually found guilty and sentenced to 28 years in prison in Peru. Now May 2014, Joran van der Sloot through his attorney tells the world that the sociopath is getting married in a couple of weeks to 23 year old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, who is pregnant with his child. Coincidence, hardly.
Sadly, neither Natalee Holloway nor Stephany Flores will ever be able to experience the joys of marriage or being a parent. Yet this sociopath is allowed to do both. One day there will be a reckoning Joran and it will not be pretty.
Hey Leydi, you may want to rethink the nuptials … it did not work out so well for the two girls above being near “The Sporter,”Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores
He’s serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian woman. He’s also the main suspect in the disappearance of an American teenage girl. But these days, Joran van der Sloot is more focused on his wedding plans than his legal situation.
Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s Peruvian defense attorney, told CNN the 26-year-old Dutch national is getting married “in late May or early June” to a Peruvian woman he befriended in the prison in which he’s being held in Lima, the capital.
“They met when she was visiting a relative in prison. They became friends and spent a lot of time together in his cell,” Altez said. “Unlike The United States, here in Peru loved ones or relatives can see inmates inside their jails.”
Joran van der Sloot is scheduled to be released on June 10, 2038; but according to his attorney the 28 year sentence can be reduced considerably “for good behavior.” However, Van der Sloot is then supposed to be extradited to the United States to face extortion charges. Some have speculated that Joran is marrying his prison conjugal visit partner to help him become a Peru citizen and some how lessen his chances for extradition to the US. However, as stated above by HLN correspondent Jean Casarez, there is no benefit for Van der Sloot to get married. So why? Can you just say spite from the sociopath and one more way to harass Beth Holloway and Natalee’s family. It is not lost that this is the anniversary of her death and disappearance.
EXIT QUESTION: WILL JORAN VAN DER SLOOT AND HIS SOON TO BE BRIDE LEYDI CAROL FIGUEROA UCEDU HONEYMOON IN ARUBA?
