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’s father 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. The story was given to Inside Edition.
“I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness,” Jurrien de Jong told Inside Edition.
De Jong said 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, slam her body on the floor then make an opening in a crawl space. He has previously told media this building is a Marriott Hotel.
“I knew she was dead,” he told Inside Edition.
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.
