Daily Commentary – Tuesday, May 19, 2015 – We All Remember May 30, 2005 as the Day Natalee Holloway Went Missing in Aruba

Greta Investigates … 10 Years Later, The Death and Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba … However, Monkeys Know that Joran van der Sloot Lies
On Saturday night Greta Van Susteran did a 10 year later review of the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway on Aruba. Although there was not a lot of new material, Greta Investigates nicely summarized the case, while also having Beth Holloway and some of Natalee’s friends from that fateful trip to Aruba in 2005 talk about their lives, feelings and memories of Natalee. Its ten years later and Natalee’s friends have graduated college and are on with their lives. Sadly that is something that Natalee Holloway was never allowed to do because of a terrible chance encounter with Joran Van der Sloot on her final night in the island of Aruba. However, it seems to hardly have been a chance encounter after all.
On the 10-year anniversary of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, “Greta Investigates” takes a new look at the teenager’s last days while on a high school graduation trip on the Caribbean island of Aruba.
Greta Van Susteren traveled to the island with Natalee’s mother Beth Holloway to investigate the bizarre twists and countless lies that have plagued this mysterious case from the start.
And you’ll learn how the teen’s suspected killer, Joran van der Sloot, was almost caught in an FBI sting operation, but instead slipped out of Aruba and fled to Peru. He is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for killing college student Stephany Flores on the 5-year anniversary of Natalee’s disappearance.
However, when many on Aruba defended Joran Van der Sloot, an Aruba LE that was at best incompetent and at worst corrupt. An American media that was all too often more worried about the next big salacious story rather than investigative journalism as the Natalee Holloway story was the missing person case heard round the world. At times it felt like there were more media folks in Aruba than tourists. However, throughout the search for Natalee Holloway and the obstacles put up by the Aruba legal system, the police, the tourism board, the Van der Sloot family and those looking to protect Joran … Scared Monkeys knew from the beginning that Joran Van der Sloot was lying. Although Greta has done fine work over the years and continues to keep the case in the spot light to hopefully one day provide Justice for Natalee, we at Scared monkeys were never inclined to believe him. Joran Van der Sloot was a pathological liar and a sociopath.

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.”
Dave Holloway Interview on ‘The Real View’ with Gretchen Carlson Discussing Possible New Lead in Search for Natalee Holloway in Aruba
BACK TO THE BEACH …
In an interview on The Real View with Gretchen Carlson, Dave Holloway, the father of missing and considered deceased Natalee Holloway, went to Aruba a couple weeks back to investigate a new lead into the disappearance of Natalee. The lead comes from witness Jurrien de Jong who says, “I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night that she was alive. I was the eyewitness.” Dave Holloway went back to Aruba about two weeks ago on the pretense of this information and to get an exact location of where Natalee Holloway was last seen. Dave took a cadaver dog with him; however, they were not allowed to search many locations because they were considered restricted and off limits.
Dave Holloway stated in the interview that he finds the new witness credible and asked T.J. Ward, a private investigator who has worked on the Natalee Holloway case in the past, to give Jurrien de Jong a voice analysis test. Jurrien passed the test.

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.

Hmm, you all know where Hadicurari Beach is, this area of Aruba is, it is right by the Fisherman’s Huts. You better watch out Aruba, maybe while searching for John Grady, they may just find Natalee Holloway as well by accident.
Hadicurari Beach – Aruba
Hadicurari Beach in Aruba also known as Fisherman’s Huts, is a rocky strip out past the Marriott Aruba Resort, where windsurfers slice the water and the aeronautics of colorful kite-surf crescents punctuate the horizon. Once home to the island’s fishermen, it is a popular spot in Aruba for surfing enthusiasts and the venue for sporting events in Aruba throughout the year.

Dave Holloway Calls for New Investigation in Disappearance of Natalee Hollowai in Aruba … Witness Jurriën de Jong Says She was Buried where Marriott Hotel Was Under Construction
WILL ARUBA HAVE THE GUTS TO INVESTIGATE THIS TIP … WILL ARUBA EVER DO THE RIGHT THING OR WILL THEY FOREVER BE KNOWN FOR THE ISLAND THAT HELPED COVER UP THE CRIME OF AMERICAN TOURIST NATALEE HOLLOWAY … JUST A REMINDER ARUBA, KARMA IS A BITCH.
This coming May 30th will mark the 10 year anniversary that Mountain Brook, Alabama teen Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba. Just recently, Dave Holloway, Natalee’s father, called on the Aruba public prosecutor to investigate the tip that his daughter is buried under the Marriott hotel in Aruba. Natales’s body has never been recovered; however, she was declared legally dead in 2012. The tip is that Amsterdam resident Jurrien de Jong claims to have been an eyewitness to her disappearance. In 2005, De Jong regularly visited the Marriott Hotel construction site (picture here) for illegal, drug-related purposes. De Jong claimed that Natalee was buried under the concrete floor of the Marriott Aruba Surf Club late May 2005. Prosecutor Peter Blanken didn’t investigate De Jong’s story because, in his opinion, certain elements didn’t fit. Probably like because it sounded plausible and Aruba certainly did not want to being back the tourist-killing story for Natalee Holloway.
Natalee Holloway & her father Dave Holloway
Dave Holloway, Natalee Holloway’s father, has called on the Public Prosecutor to investigate the tip that his daughter is buried under the Marriott hotel in Aruba, the AD reports.
Amsterdam resident Jurrien de Jong claims to have been an eyewitness to her disappearance. According to him, Joran van der Sloot killed the American girl on a closed construction site where a new complex of the Marriott hotel was under construction. De Jong states that he saw Van der Sloot hiding Holloway’s body under the floor of the Marriott Aruba Surf Club Hotel. De Jong was at the construction site that night for illegal, drug-related activities, which is why he did not come forward with his testimony right away.
De Jong, 59, says he has spent a great deal of time and his own money on his efforts. He flew to Aruba three times, where Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005, gave his testimony under oath and repeatedly shared information with the public prosecutor there. Yet he can’t get justice in Aruba to investigate the spot where, according to him, Holloway’s body has been hidden for ten years.
At that time, he says he regularly visited the Marriott Hotel construction site at night for illegal, drug-related purposes, which is why he did not come forward with his testimony right away. The site is near the Holiday Inn where Holloway and members of her Mountain Brook, Alabama high school graduation class were registered at on Aruba’s western coast.
Kalpoe brothers and Joran Van der Sloot
De Jong tells the AD that he heard voices at the gate of the construction site on the night of May 30, and quickly hid when he heard the gate open. He later recognized the two as Joran van der Sloot and Natalee Holloway.
“I saw Joran run after Natalee. They go to a small building that is under construction. There is no lower step, so they have to climb to the landing,” he told the newspaper. “What happens after that is unclear. But something must have gone wrong, because some time later Joran comes out with Natalee in his arms. He lays her down, jumps down and pulls her up onto his shoulder. Then he throws her body on the ground.”
De Jong then saw Joran hiding the body under the building, he claims. “He digs an access into the crawl space and drags Natalee inside. After about a minute he reappears, closes the opening with sand and walks back to the gate.”
Natalee Holloway and Beth Holloway
Dutchman says he saw where Natalee Holloway was buried … Aruba Chief Prosecutor Peter Blanken saw no reason to investigate the witness’ claims.
He decided to come forward in 2008, after seeing a broadcast by Dutch TV crime reporter Peter R. de Vries in which Joran claimed that Natalee died on the beach and was dumped into the ocean. “I knew that Joran was lying and decided to inform the authorities,” he said.
De Jong revisited the site in 2009 and after studying the Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club’s plans, he concluded that the missing American was buried under the staircase of the hotel’s Spyglass Tower. His efforts to have a look at the space by drilling a hole in the hotel floor failed.
He wrote letters to the chief prosecutor in Aruba, the attorney general, the Marriott group and Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, who remembered smelling a strong decomposing stench at the site. However, justice authorities never searched the area where De Jong claims the body should be. Fire fighters did drain the pond across from the Marriott in July 2005, without results.

Aruba Chief Prosecutor Peter Blanken with whom De Jong had an hour-long conversation saw no reason to investigate the witness’ claims. Blanken referred to certain elements of the story as “implausible” because De Jong was not accurate in his description of the difference in height between Van der Sloot and Holloway, Aruba’s current Chief Prosecutor Eric Olthof told Algemeen Dagblad. He also said that there was insufficient capacity to investigate every tip.
Marriott spokesperson Laura Botelho confirmed to the newspaper that the company had been in touch with De Jong. The company decided to wait for approval of authorities before conducting their own internal inquiry. “As usual, we will cooperate fully with the authorities if they start an official investigation,” she said.
My person opinion is, that although Natalee Holloway may very well have been murdered at the Marriott construction sight, she was most likely moved, put in the case and the dumped in the ocean that would have made in nearly impossible to find.

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?
