10 Years Later Google Earth Image Offers New clues & Raises New Questions in Natalee Holloway Case … Was There Construction Taking Place at Marriott Aruba Surf Club … See Pics for Yourself

Tomorrow will mark 10 years that Alabama teen Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba. After all the searches, all the lies, all the incompetent police work, all the cronyism, all the corruption and all the cover up, Natalee Holloway is still missing and is presumed dead. At the heart of Natalee’s disappearance and death is the prime suspect who was last seen with her, Joran Van der Sloot. Also at the root of the Natalee Holloway disappearance was a Caribbean Islands attempt to not have their tourism hurt by the case.

Recently a witness has come forward, Jurrien De Jong, who said he saw Natalee and Joran that fateful night in May 2005. De Jong said, “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.” Actually, Jurrien De Jong is not a new witness to the case because he said similar comments in 2010. Jurrien De Jong spoke with Diario and said that Joran killed Natalee at the Marriott Aruba Surf Club that was under construction.

Their right is the Marriott Aruba Surf Club Phase 3, in terms of structure is finished and only needs to be finished and left, a row of containers.

Joran suggests that stars and look at Natalee’s remark that there is already a roof on the hotel is right, then he points to show a small building at the very end of the site.

If your building plan of the hotel on Google Earth satellite image of June 22, 2005 submit, you will find that this building is the start of the emergency stairwell # 3 of “The Spyglass Tower”.

They run inside, climb on the landing, go through the stairs to the first floor and steps in a “half” room, which later the space behind the elevators would be.

He then takes her in his arms and running down the stairs and puts her on the landing. He jumps down, pulls her into the hallway and grabbed a fire with a twist smacks her on the ground. Then he pushes the sand to crawl away and he pulls Natalee at her feet inside. He crawls to the end of the room and stuffed with sand near the crack. His shoes, where blood is, he kicks off and leaves behind this spot.

Jurriën de Jong

However, Aruba Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof dismisses Jurrien De Jong’s story that he saw Joran Van der Sloot kill Natalee Holloway at this location. But we know ARUBA IS CORRUPT AS HELL.

“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.”

Enter Google Earth

The Aruban authorities and the Marriott claim that the construction of Spyglass Tower at the Marriott Aruba Surf Club claim that it was not under construction at the time. REALLY? Judge for yourself from the picture taken from Google Earth 2005.

On the other hand, some signs complicate Marriott’s official time line of the construction of Spyglass Tower. A satellite image from Google Earth taken in June 2005, just a few weeks after Natalee Holloway disappeared, shows what appears to be the blurry outlines of structures that could resemble a construction site.

Holloway’s father says he remembers the site from the day after his daughter’s disappearance. “I can tell you for a fact. I was there on June 1, and there was definitely construction in that area,” he says.

Holloway says he has information that construction began in February, but he was not clear on how he knows. Natalee Holloway was last seen on May 30, 2005.

CNN’s Savidge received this statement from Jeff Flaherty of global corporate relations at Marriott International Inc.: “Mr. de Jong has contacted Marriott in the past and each time we have suggested to Mr. de Jong that he present his account of the matter to the authorities. As we have done all along, we cooperate fully with the authorities whenever they are conducting an official investigation.”

For his part, de Jong says he believes authorities are dragging their feet.

“It’s the inconvenient truth. It would damage the image of Aruba as one happy island,” he says.

Oltholf won’t say that de Jong is lying, but says his statement can’t be true.

14 Year Old Christopher Duran Shot and Killed In The Bronx, NY … Police Say Gang Related

The NY Daily News is reporting that a 14 year old boy, Christopher Duran, was shot dead while walking to school in the Bronx, NY on Friday. According to reports, the 14 year old was peppered with 16 bullets by a gunman wearing a red bandana who shot him multiple times at point-blank range. 14 year old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a Laundromat. Duran was shot once in the head and three times in the torso at Sheridan Avenue near East 167th Street at around 8:30 a.m. in Concourse Village. The authorities believe the shooting was gang related. Duran was no stranger to police, he had already racked-up five previous arrests, including possession of a knife, assault and battery, and robbery.

A baby-faced Bronx teenager was executed on the street Friday by a gunman wearing a red bandana who blasted him multiple times at point-blank range — and without any warning.

Fourteen-year-old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a laundermat, sources said.

“We have video of the shooting,” a police source said. “It’s bad, real bad. The guy runs up to him and just shoots him, bang, bang, bang. It doesn’t look like he says anything to him.”

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce confirmed the existence of the surveillance video and agreed “it’s pretty gruesome.”

The hoodie-clad gunman may have been trying to “disguise what he looks like” with the bandana, he added.

Where is Rev. Al Sharpton an the rest of the clan protesting this murder?

UPDATE I: A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon.

Police are looking for two suspects who fled southbound on Sheridan Avenue. They are described as a black or dark-skinned Hispanic male wearing all black, and a Hispanic male wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with dark sleeves, blue jeans and a red bandana covering his face, police said.

A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon. Investigators believe the shooting is gang related, but were not immediately sure if Duran was the intended target, or if the gunmen mistook him for someone else.

“(He’s) trying to disguise what he looks like. It is a red bandana, don’t know what that means just yet. But it’s a very distinctive piece of clothing. I would hope that we put that out and somebody calls,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

Robin Ficker, Fomer Defense Attorney for Quadruple Murder Suspect Daron Dylon Wint Says DC Police Have Wrong Guy … “I Knew Him to be a Very Nice, Gentle Person” (VIDEO)

WHY WE HAVE A VERY STRONG DISLIKE FOR DEFENSE ATTORNEYS … I guess this is what defense attorneys say to make them be able to live with themselves.

GO FIGURE, ANOTHER GENTLE GIANT Thursday night, Daron Dylon Wint, the suspect in the brutal murders of three members of a prominent Washington, D.C. family and their housekeeper, was arrested Northeast Washington, DC. According to reports, Wint’s DNA was on the pizza crust of a Dominoes pizza that was ordered at the same time the Savopoulos family was being tortured and killed. The suspect??s former attorney, Robin Ficker, who represented Wint in six minor cases, appeared with Nancy Grace and said, the DC police “have ??the wrong guy” and this was a “rush to judgement”.. Ficker then went on to astonishingly say, ?”I knew him to be a very nice, gentle person”

UNBELIEVABLE … BUT WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A DEFENSE ATTORNEY WHO HAS GOT A CRIMINAL OFF ON LESSER CHARGES ONLY TO TORTURE AND KILL 4 PEOPLE.

Court Documents Say that Daron Dylon Wint, the Man Charged in the Quadruple Murder of Washington, DC family, Did Not Act Alone

NBC News is reporting that Daron Dylon Wint, the individual charged with the quadruple murder of a DC family and their housekeeper, did not act alone. Detective Jeffrey Owens of the Metropolitan Police wrote in a statement, “The crimes described in this affidavit required the presence and assistance of more than one person,” in support of a first-degree murder charge while armed that were filed against Darron Wint. However, neither the court papers nor law enforcement officials would name one or more accomplices, or say if they were among the people arrested with Daron Dylon Wint. He was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC.

Police investigating the murder of a wealthy Washington, D.C., family and their housekeeper suspect that the alleged killer, Darron Wint, had help from accomplices, according to court documents released Friday.

In an affidavit seeking an arrest warrant for Wint, a city detective said he believed that others helped Wint hold the three adults and a child captive before killing them and torching the family’s home.

Wint, 34, was captured Thursday in Maryland, a week after Savvas Savopoulos, 46, his wife, Amy, 47, their 10-year-old son, Philip, and their housekeeper, Veralicia “Vera” Figueroa, 57, were found by firefighters in the mansion’s second floor. Wint was arraigned Friday on charges of first-degree murder.

Two other men and three women also were taken into custody at the time of Wint’s arrest. They were questioned and released; no one other than Wint has been charged.

Kashif Parvaiz Sentenced to Life in Prison for Wife’s 2011 Murder in Boonton, NJ … Claimed Family had Been Targeted in Anti-Muslim Attack

Muslim Kashif Parvaiz sentenced to life in prison for 2011 shooting death of his wife.

30 year old Kashif Parvaiz has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of his wife, Nazish Noorani. The judge deemed Parvaiz ‘cold-blooded’ and ‘beyond redemption. Parvaiz was previously convicted by a jury on February 26, 2015 of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree and other counts in the shooting death of his wife. Initially following the shooting, Kashif Parvaiz claimed that he and his family were the victims of an anti-Muslim attack.  Kashif Parvaiz, from New York City, was on a walk with his wife, Nazish Noorani, 27, and their two-year-old son in Boonton, New Jersey, in August 2011 when Noorani was fatally shot in the chest. However, his story unraveled when his mistress, Antoinette Stephen, admitted to her role in set-up and testified against Parvaiz.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp has announced that Kashif Parvaiz, 30, has been sentenced to life in prison in connection with the 2011 murder of his wife, Nazish Noorani.

On Feb. 26, 2015, Parvaiz was convicted when a jury returned a verdict of guilty against him on counts of first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree; two counts of the second degree of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose; two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, crimes of the second degree; prohibited weapons and devices in the fourth degree; second degree endangering the welfare of a child; and third degree hindering one’s apprehension.

This prosecution stemmed from the Parvaiz’s arrest for his role in the shooting death of his wife, Nazish Noorani, on Cedar Street in Boonton on the night of Aug. 16, 2011.

ISIS Execute a Man with a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Then Whoop it Up Like a Bunch of Yahoo’s (VIDEO)

ISIS SAVAGES ESCALATE THEIR EXECUTIONS …

ISIS steps up their barbaric actions and executed yet another individual. However, this time they did not cut off his head, they instead blew the man up with a shoulder-fired rocket propelled grenade. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What will these savages think up of next? ISIS, or as Barack Obama calls them, the JV, used a weapon designed to be used against tanks to kill a person. In doing so, following the savagery, they danced around shooting their guns and whooped it up with shouts of ‘Allah is greatest’.

No longer content with executing their prisoners with knives and guns, Islamic State militants have ratcheted up their savagery by blasting a man to death with a bazooka.

Shocking video emerged today showing the captive exploding into a ball of flames after being shot with a rocket-propelled grenade that is designed to take out tanks and aircraft.

Amid sickening whoops of joy and shouts of ‘Allah is greatest’, the barbaric jihadis continue to fire their rifles at the dead man as they move in and surround his body.

The man, named by the group as Ibrahim Shraideh, was said to be a member of the Al Shaitat tribe from the town of Abu Hamam in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province.

Warning: Video extremely disturbing

Which further begs the question, how in the hell wasn’t a jdam(s) used (VIDEO) on this ISIS column on terrorists in their victory march celebrating the ISIS victory in Rimadi?

Daron Dylon Wint, Suspected in Quadruple Washington, D.C Murder Arrested and Charged with Murder (Update: Police Say Wint May Not Have Acted Alone)

Daron Dylon Wint was arrested by police Thursday night and charged with the quadruple murder of the Savopoulos family and their house keeper.

34 year old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested Thursday night in Northeast Washington, DC by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. Wint is the prime suspect in the quadruple murder of the  Savopoulos family and their housekeeper. Wint was charged with first degree felony murder while armed. According to accounts, Wint was tracked to New York City; however, was ultimately taken into custody at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington.  Savvas Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, where Darron Dylon Wint was reported to have been a previous  employee of the company.

Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned later today.

Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint’s arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.

“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.

“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”

UPDATE I: Suspect in DC quadruple murder Arrested with four associates.

From the NY Post domes the following, Robin Ficker, an attorney who represented Daron Dylon Wint years ago, said he did not believe Wint could “hurt a fly.” What do you say now counselor?

The massive manhunt for a suspect in the horrific murders of a Washington businessman’s family and their housekeeper ended late Thursday when police grabbed suspect Daron Dylon Wint and four associates in the nation’s capital.

“Just got him,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The arrest capped a day that began with the revelation Wint had been identified in last week’s murders of Savvas Savopoulos, 46; his wife Amy, 47; the couple’s 10-year-old son Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, by DNA left on pizza crust during what may have been an extended home invasion. Police traced Wint, a 34-year-old ex-con from Maryland, to Brooklyn, N.Y., and then back to Washington in the afternoon.

UPDATE II: Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement:

“We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us.”

UPDATE III: D.C. Quadruple murder suspect Daron Dylon Wint once bragged ‘he was good with a knife’.

With a past record like this, it was only a matter of time before it escalated to murder.

Daron Dylon Wint, the man accused of slaying a wealthy family and a housekeeper inside their D.C. mansion, once bragged he was “good with a knife” and “not afraid of the police,” according to court records.

Wint, who was captured after a massive manhunt Thursday night, boasted about his ability to murder “easily” and has a pattern of alleged violence, records show.

He reportedly bragged while threatening to kill a woman and her infant daughter after he went to a nightclub with her in 2010, according to records.

“I’m going to come over there and kill you, your daughter and friends,” Wint told that woman, according to records. “The defendant advised he was good with a knife and could kill them easily and was not afraid of the police,” a detective said.

According to the Washington Post, Wint, who “became very violent,” threatened another woman and her family that “he will drop us one by one” over a parking dispute.

Again in 2010, Wint was arrested for carrying a 2-foot-long machete and a BB pistol outside the headquarters of American Iron Works, the company owned by Savvas Savopoulos.

Wint’s alleged violence began in his own family.

  •  In 2005, Wint was ordered to stay away from his father, stepmother and younger sister after allegedly threatening to shoot them.
  • His friends weren’t immune from his rages either; Wint punched and groped a former acquaintance and “drinking buddy” at the bar where she worked, alleged victim Jacinta Council told the Post. She eventually dropped the charged.
  • In 2006, he punched a housemate during a fight over loud music.
  • In 2006, he was arrested for stabbing a man.
  • Wint was arrested for assault charges at least three times in the late 2000s.

UPDATE IV: Police Say, Suspect in 4 gruesome D.C. killings might not have acted alone.

D.C. Police believe more than one person may have been involved in the gruesome slayings of the Savopoulos family and their housekeeper, and said the victims were held captive beginning the evening before they were killed.

The four were slain the afternoon of May 14, according to new documents filed in D.C. Superior Court, soon after an employee of Savvas Savopoulos dropped off $40,000 in cash at the home.

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.

HOLLOWAY

“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.
