Communicate your views effectively on this messageboard. Think twice about how you'll be perceived before you hit submit.

We are here to discuss ALL views on this case. Observations and questions about the suspects, the victims, and their families are not "bashing" as long as they are supported by clear and articulate thoughts which are sensitive to the passionate feelings surrounding all of them. Just because you find a post to be opposing your view or theory does NOT make the other poster "bashing" or maligning. Don't worry - if we think the post is bashing or maligning, we'll take the appropriate steps to be certain it doesn't happen again.

This board is not a chat room - your manners should be quite evident in your posts and relative to the topic at hand. There are 100-300 of you on here at any given time; frankly we can't be everywhere at once and nor should we be expected to be. It is time for the adults to "play nice."I expect you will do as I've just stated, otherwise I assure you there will be bans, which will be unannounced and not warned, for 5 days for those of you insist on not showing some decency and understanding towards others.

For those of you who routinely post thought-provoking, respectful posts, we salute and thank you, and ask that you continue to provide the example to other Monkeys.

Can you even get a ground floor room at the HI?

All rooms have sliders to balconies, but I do not see any rooms listed as ground floor.

Unless trees and grass grows on balconies, the room was on the ground floor.

Fox showed them on Greta's show last night.  Natalee's room led right out to the beach...pretty cool.

My theorie is, That I think that joran did what he said and leaves NATALEE on the beach, b/c she wanted him to left her there. After he went away something happend.


Hannie....why do you think she would want him to leave her alone on the beach at 2AM?  I just can't come up with a reasonable (in my mind that is) why, unless something happened between them, and then it would have to be something pretty serious


well let me tap my vivid imagination

Joran could have gotten fresh with Natalee and she got angry at him, he may not have even raped her, she may have started sobering up and then he was getting too aggressive, she tells him to back off or slaps him, and then says, get lost, my hotel is just up the beach I'm going.........and Joran leaves with tail between his legs........

maybe the reason all the boys overreacted was they have something else to hide

here is another scenario, what if Nat and Joran get to the beach and some big party is going on, some big bonfire and what if Nat loses interest in Joran, she mets someone else she's more interested, man that happens all the time, though Nat didn't seem the type and he leaves her there with other people partying but then supposely he would just say so- maybe the party people are keeping silent because they do know what happened???

just riffing


Or maybe Natalee wanted to go to the Holiday Inn ALONE, because she didn't want the chaperones know she went out with a stranger? Maybe that's why she asked Joran to leave her alone? Maybe she wanted to go back to her room secretely?

Distance between the beach near Marriott and the Holiday Inn:

Maybe "something bad happened" during the walk from the beach to her hotel room (HI)?

To the  Dutch readers:
NOW on Nova an exclusive interview (I think it's a very short interview) with police commissioner Jan van der Straaten, who is a good friend of Paul van der Sloot. His reaction on last night's Nova-interview with PvdS. I doubt he will tell us more details of the investigation (in the Dutch judical system, investigators don't reveal too many details of an on-going investigation), who who knows? :)

Well also here you have a statement of Dash that swears by the fact of a particular detail.  Now in a Aruban interrogation I see a change of story coming up, now is that guilty or innocent? Do you now discount every statement said by such person or do you somehow interject a reason so great that it would cause you to forgive and understand why someone had said something that did not bare out in the light of evidence...


Title: What confused me about the interview in Natalee's room
Post by: Whodunit? on June 29, 2005, 04:21:10 PM
OK, did anyone get confused as I did when Greta was asking Beth about Natalee's stuff?  It appeared to be somewhat packed, and Greta asked her if it had been packed or if she had just "lived out of the suitcase" and Beth confidently said that Natalee packed it - that she was ready to come home.  I thought that Nat's friends assumed that she had stayed out all night or in another room at the hotel and packed it for her?  BHT has been so sharp about some things and I am SURE she is out of her mind by now, but?????

OK. Here it is. We were talking about Joran taking AP classes because I remembered Anita said it on the Greta interview:

"He graduated with honor, all As and Bs. He did some AP, advanced courses, physics, calculus, AP English."

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,160471,00.html

Now AP physics he could probably take before his senior year. But AP calc and English are usually senior year courses because the soph & jr. years are three HS years condensed into two and the 3rd is a college course type year.

But someone apparently in the know posted over on the timeline link that Joran's name wasn't on the list of students from the island taking AP exams this year.

Why would Anita lie? Small thing maybe, but weird.

Because anyone taking the AP exams May 2-13 would not have to take final exams at the school (ISA) June 3-8. They automatically were exempt.
So Joran probably did get preferential treatment. The polis probably didn't want to pick him up because he HAD to take all his exams or he wouldn't graduate. And then he wouldn't be able to go to his Florida college in the fall.
The Aruban police let valuable time and evidence slip away because they didn't want to mess up Joran's college chances and his graduation.

Wow that picture sure show how close all these hotels were..Was there not a post that mentioned the board walk, as if Joran walked Nat up to the board walk and went home.  I wonder if the road towards Montana is closer to Holiday in  or not...

..actually...if I remember correctly..Natalee's room led out onto sand. One would suppose that eventually you could get to the beach but, as others have said, you could not tell if access from there was blocked or not. I know "I" didnt see the water last night. And I dont see why this is such a prevalent issue.

This is what Anita vd Sloot said in the interview with Greta:

"he [Joran] went on with his exams, and he was a normal teenager. He was under pressure. He knew that things were wrong, but — and the girl was missing. But he repeated, She will appear somewhere. And if she does, I'll kick her butt in front of her mom..."

Note, Joran tells her IF she does [appear].

He wasn't so sure she would appear again. That's telling.

OK. Asking again because I keep hoping to find someone who remembers about Joran playing in a poker tournament at the HI casino with some MB kids. Joran came in 4th. I can't find this. Does anyone remember this or the hours of the tourny? It went on like 3 hours or more.

There were 130 students on that trip.  I am sure not ALL of them had a ground floor room with a slider.  Dash said the rooms did not have a door out to the beach, swore by it, but MAYBE, just maybe she was talking about from her experience.  Maybe her room did not have a slider out to the beach.  Maybe her room was an inside room or an upstairs room.  From her experience there were not sliders out to the beach.  Maybe Nat and her group paid a little extra and Dash didn't know it.  But let's please not accuse her of not telling the truth.  She told the truth as she knew it.

You do not have to take AP exams when you take AP classes!!!  Both of my sons - 4.20 students - took several AP classes their senior year and did not take AP exams - especially since Joran was getting a full ride at college - he did not need to be in any hurry to buypass classes - which is the reason you sometimes take the AP tests so you can skip classes in college

i realize that most of you on here have totally burnt this young man at the stake before he has been convicted - but let us be fair as to what we charge him with - taking or not taking AP exams should not be one of these things!

I think what we were all trying to get at here is that he DID take some exams.  Finals were the week of the 6th, not the week that Natalee went missing as some have said.  It has been said that he "was at school the following day on time and aced his exams".  We were all trying to figure out if these people were even talking about the same day as finals were the week after not the week of the incident.  Some speculated that maybe it was his AP exams he took the week of the incident which would explain why people continue to say "he was at school that day, everything fine, aced his exams".  But, according to all schedules, even AP's were not the week Natalee went missing, finals were the week following, so the question is why is everything using that whole "just fine, aced exams" as some sort of testament to how he could not have killed Natalee the night before?

Some schools require you to take the exams to pass the class, especially if they are picking up the tab for the tests.  Might have been the same at Joran's school.

NOVA (Dutch TV): it was NOT an interview with Jan van der Straaten, it was an interview with the headprosecutor Karin Janssen! She felt necessary to react on yesterday's Nova-interview with Paul and anita van der Sloot.

- Paul's frustrated the investigation from the beginning. On Dutch TV, Paul said he only explained the procedure to the 3 guys. Karin "cowboy" Janssen is sure that he did more than that. He also explained the boys that no body means no case. That's why the 3 suspects are not talking.
And Karin also said something Paul told a friend to do something. I missed that part.  :(  
- Karin defends the interrogation techniques that they use. Everything is on tape. In the trial they have to show the judge the tapes. of course they are putting a lot of pressure on the suspects, but it's not like they are abusing them.
- Karin still thinks the investigation is in a crucial phase. They are still investigating what really happened in the days after May 30. Communation between the 3 guys and their friends. family, etc.
- Karin has a great team. 20 investigators, 4 FBI agents and a Dutch team. She has nothing to complain. This case could be solved with this team. The problem is not the team, the problem is that the 3 guys don't tell the truth/changing stories.
- MONDAY the judge-commisioner will decide whether or not to prolong the detention of the 3 suspects.

I'm sure she said mro in the interview....but this is all that I can remember... 8)

Please stop nitpicking every comment and statement she has made, as she is doing the best she can from a very difficult memory.

Thanks

Tom


I second that.  Dash and every kid on that trip has their own version of what happened FROM THEIR OWN PERSPECTIVE.  Anyone here who has an ounce of information on doing interrogations KNOWS a group like this has various information to give...depending on their perspective and where they were at the time, etc.  To continue this BS going after these kids, especially with obvious lack of understanding of the tenants of Investigation 101...is absolutely wrong...and only speaks to the "state" of the person/people doing so.

I personally trust that the FBI got this all correct.  They would NEVER make an assumption based on one or two interviews from the teens.  The FBI knows that stories are different...and NOT because the kids are lying.

I have been so pained by the attacks on these kids.  Again, those doing it IMO have deep seated personal anger NOT related to this case.

Please find some compassion or kindness...or leave it alone!

Today, I picked up my mail and was moved to tears as I found a Natalee bracelet mailed to me from one of the kids who used to come here.  She didn't ask for money, but thought I cared enough to have a bracelet.  Receiving it, and the kindness of the person who sent it meant the world to me.

Edited to add:  The kind of people going after these kids continually are the same kind who find it fun to harass waitresses and taxi cab drivers...they are a breed unto their own...their lives are so "small" they find little pleasures in going after the little people.

I will NOT apologize for being so blunt, it's up to tough old broads like me to tell it like it is!!!  Even though I'm not all that old.

What does this police investigation tell us?
I have been holding an opinion that Aruba LE knows the basic structure of the crime. Did anyone get a good photo of Joran's face, forearms etc. during perp walk? Any visible marks?
How could LE release PVDS without signaling to Joran they had no evidence sufficient to covict? Did not this increase Joran resolve to stonewall? I never thought the Aruba LE stupid, so they must have some good indications, but that judge burned 'em bad.

Natalee stayed in room 7114 according to the video with Greta and her Mother. It had a sliding door opening to a small area with a palm tree and some grass. I think the beach was beyond in the distance behind a wall or off to the left. It did not open directly onto the beach, yet it had beach access.

Not sure why you wanted to know that, but I recall the scene fairly clearly.

Well also here you have a statement of Dash that swears by the fact of a particular detail.  Now in a Aruban interrogation I see a change of story coming up, now is that guilty or innocent? Do you now discount every statement said by such person or do you somehow interject a reason so great that it would cause you to forgive and understand why someone had said something that did not bare out in the light of evidence...


There were 130 students on that trip.  I am sure not ALL of them had a ground floor room with a slider.  Dash said the rooms did not have a door out to the beach, swore by it, but MAYBE, just maybe she was talking about from her experience.  Maybe her room did not have a slider out to the beach.  Maybe her room was an inside room or an upstairs room.  From her experience there were not sliders out to the beach.  Maybe Nat and her group paid a little extra and Dash didn't know it.  But let's please not accuse her of not telling the truth.  She told the truth as she knew it.


Right dragon! Or perhaps she knew the doors locked from the inside, and could not be accessed from the beach side.

Title: texas hold'em contest
Post by: iquitos on June 29, 2005, 05:39:51 PM
http://www.cdnn.info/news/travel/t050618.html

Excerpt:  

Bearman said the group also was told that Holloway's friends had seen the same teenager in the casino at the hotel where they were staying.

With help from some locals, Holloway's mother and the others determined the youth had been in the casino playing in a Texas Hold 'Em poker tournament, according to Bearman.

Sign in sheet

Players had to sign in, she said, and that gave them a name and initial: Joran V.

"After talking to enough people, we were able to deduce that it was Joran van der Sloot," she said. "Once we got the name we were able to track the address through people and we got the police. They escorted us and we went straight to the house."

Van der Sloot's father, Aruban judge-in-training Paul van der Sloot, said his son was out playing poker when the group first arrived at the house around 1 a.m., Bearman said. Still accompanied by police, the group went to a couple of places looking for van der Sloot before returning to the father's house and finding Joran van der Sloot there with one of the two Surinamese brothers who later were held, she said.

"Basically we interrogated him," Bearman said. "He never denied being with her."

Van der Sloot described dancing with Holloway at the bar and said "she wanted to go with me" at closing time, according to Bearman.

Van der Sloot claimed he left Holloway outside the Holiday Inn resort where the group was staying after they took a late-night trip to a scenic lighthouse, Bearman said, and he even accompanied the family to the hotel to show them the exact spot where she was dropped off.

His story didn't add up, though, according to Bearman.

"We started pressing him on that because we had students who were in the lobby until 5 a.m., and she never arrived," she said.

Questioning

While Aruban police were present during the questioning of van der Sloot, which lasted until about 3 a.m., officers left the talking to Holloway's family until things began to get "heated," Bearman said.

Because there is a HUGE difference in one of the other students saying "There were not doors that opened to the beach" because maybe her room didn't have one or maybe the door opened to the outside of the hotel but certainly not right out to the "beach" and were locked from the inside, not accessable from the outside and a young man being that last person seen with a missing girl out and out telling completely false stories about what he did with her only to protect himself.  HUGE difference in my book.  One may be as simple as not having the same layout room or maybe small things attributed to a memory of events that aren't real clear but the other is simply something that can't be a simple mistake or memory loss.  How on earth do you forget that you didn't drop someone off at a hotel?  How do you mistakenly say that the brothers dropped you off at home and left with Natalee back to the hotel when that is no where close to the truth?  How do you just forget that someone left you alone on the beach with a beautiful young woman in the middle of the night or that Satish drove you home after you left her on the beach or that you walked 40 minutes home?  There is a HUGE difference.

It is your job to know what you're talking about.  Joran's family is being tortured?  That's what happens when you don't spit out the truth about a missing person...when you were the last person on this earth to be seen with her...that's reality.  Joran is in jail for good reason.  He may not stay there.  But, the fact remains, given the evidence he was the last person to see her alive.

I feel bad for the others in his family, but this is life.

Ok, let me clarify, when I said "what's good for one..." I meant that why are we holding the VDS to this high standard that they are NOT allowed to misspeak, say something wrong, sweat too much etc when we allow the same to happen to the family and friends and think nothing of it.

Do you really believe the VDS family is not under the same amount of enormous pressure that the Holloway family is? I for one do not. It's a different situation for each, same amount of stress and pressure.

And please...find me a young teenage boy who doesn't lie!

I say we all wait for the evidence to come out before hanging this kid. So far, he's committed the absolute perfect crime. Pretty amazing for a teenager dont you think? I for one don't think he's THAT perfect.

Aruba case is still a major story in US media, and not only in terms of tv minutes devoted and words printed. It ranks even higher when one tallies the "stories about the story," which are now literally everywhere in cyberspace and elsewhere.

I've searched, nearly fruitlessly, for editors/commentators/bloggers who devote serious argumentation to the case FOR more coverage.

Arianna Huffington says "just say NO-ruba" on the topic, advising a cold-turkey treatment. This is wothy of closer inspection, given Arianna's high tolerance for non-news news. Read at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/theblog/archive/arianna-huffington/just-say-noruba_2928.html

Rather-gate's original piece, "End It," is at http://www.rathergate.com/?p=893

Educational reading, indeed, for many who've ingested nothing but Arubanews/MPWW for the last month. At the risk of offending those who are emotionally tied to this case, whether out of boredom or psychopathy or both, I decided to check in and provide some perspective. Granted, learning about opinions other than one's own can in some cases be disturbing, so I advise you to be careful, read slowly, and be ready for diverse thought.

In response to the question about who packed Natalee's things (can't remember who asked that...) I am pretty sure that Dash told us early on that they were all packed to go home before they went out because they had to get up early for the flight.  So, Natalee would have packed her things sometime that day and been ready to leave in the morning knowing that they would be out late that night.

This is also one of the interesting details of that interview. I don't have time to translate this article. But I'm sure there are more people here that understands Dutch.  8)

'Vader gaf Joran verklaringen door'
De vader van Joran van der S. heeft de verklaringen van de vrienden van Joran doorgespeeld aan zijn zoon. Een vertegenwoordiger van het Arubaanse OM zei dat in NOVA.
Zonder lijk geen zaak
Joran zit op Aruba vast in verband met de verdwijning van de Amerikaanse scholiere Natalee Holloway. Paul van der S. zei volgens het OM ook tegen die vrienden, twee broers, dat de politie zonder het lijk van de scholiere geen zaak tegen hen heeft.

Procedure
Van der S. zei dinsdag nog in NOVA dat hij de vrienden van zijn zoon alleen maar heeft uitgelegd wat de procedure was als zij zouden worden gearresteerd. De twee jongens zitten intussen ook vast.

Nope. You're wrong. You are trying to compare apples to oranges.  It just doesn't work.  The people you accuse of changing their stories aren't the ones last seen with Natalee, they aren't in jail, they didn't say they left Natalee at the beach...or first that they took her back to the hotel. They're in trauma and feeling deep loss...look that up...it's in the books.

These kids took a trip to Aruba...their friend is missing.  Period. End of story.

AND, I hate to tell you but you are NOT the FBI...you are not in a position to do professional interrogations in a fair and balanced fashion.

If there's one piece of evidence that Natalee's family or friends are somehow involved in this...Go for it....until then understand and know what you're talking about before making gross assumptions.


Excuse me Nancy Drew, but I never claimed to be the FBI...but I do believe things should be looked at in a fair and balanced fashion, unlike yourself. I'm assuming from your statment that is what you are trying to say?

I never even implied yet alone stated I thought her family was involved in her disappearance, however I DO NOT agree with the way they are torturing another family based on their intuitions. Maybe they have facts that we don't know about, but that is not coming across the newswire. So until it does, why shouldn't EVERY single statement or person involved in this be scrutinized?

And I highly doubt that my stating the obvious (their statements have changed on many occasion) is me making gross assumptions. I'm just stating what the news stations report. What it means...is not my job to figure out.


It is your job to know what you're talking about.  Joran's family is being tortured?  That's what happens when you don't spit out the truth about a missing person...when you were the last person on this earth to be seen with her...that's reality.  Joran is in jail for good reason.  He may not stay there.  But, the fact remains, given the evidence he was the last person to see her alive.

I feel bad for the others in his family, but this is life.


I know quite well what I'm talking about. I watch FOX NEWS (though I'm ashamed to admit it) just like everyone else here.

No, not really.  The others students on the trip and Natalee's mother are not suspects in her disappearance by virtue of not having been the last people known to have seen her before she vanished from the face of the earth.

"What's good for one... " might be the most illogical opinion I've seen expressed in this case.


Ok, let me clarify, when I said "what's good for one..." I meant that why are we holding the VDS to this high standard that they are NOT allowed to misspeak, say something wrong, sweat too much etc when we allow the same to happen to the family and friends and think nothing of it.

Do you really believe the VDS family is not under the same amount of enormous pressure that the Holloway family is? I for one do not. It's a different situation for each, same amount of stress and pressure.

And please...find me a young teenage boy who doesn't lie!

I say we all wait for the evidence to come out before hanging this kid. So far, he's committed the absolute perfect crime. Pretty amazing for a teenager dont you think? I for one don't think he's THAT perfect.

You do not have to take AP exams when you take AP classes!!!  Both of my sons - 4.20 students - took several AP classes their senior year and did not take AP exams - especially since Joran was getting a full ride at college - he did not need to be in any hurry to buypass classes - which is the reason you sometimes take the AP tests so you can skip classes in college

i realize that most of you on here have totally burnt this young man at the stake before he has been convicted - but let us be fair as to what we charge him with - taking or not taking AP exams should not be one of these things!


My point is, since he didn't take the AP exams, he HAD to take the finals from Friday June 3-Wed. June 8. He was arrested the morning of the 9th.
The police let valuable time and critical evidence slip through their fingers because, I believe, they didn't want to hurt their friend's son's chances of attending college in the fall. He HAD to graduate to attend college. He COULDN'T graduate if he missed any of his finals from June 3-8.
So the police compromised a kidnapping investigation because they didn't want to mess up poor little Joran's finals' schedule.

I think that is lousy police/detective work. You don't work a kidnapping investigation where time is critically important around a suspect's exam schedule. And yet it appears that's exactly what they did.

I dont think this crime was a perfect crime, but anyone can clean up evidence when your given over a week to do so.
I for one try hard to stay out of the conversations that crucify anyone, but have seen some rather harsh judgements on the board also. The fact is though you have a 17 yr old boy, who was by all accounts and purposes was given alot of leeway in his life. He has changed his story, more then once. He lied straight face to Natalees parents about where he last saw her. Really, things dont add up for him. If he is lying for some other reason, then maybe itll come out. Overall though I think we can all admit this is rather strange behavior for an innocent person. I honestly can care less how much his dad sweats on TV, that tells me nothing. However the lack of eye contact I noticed while giving interviews tells more IMO. I really hope they find Natalee, because then all these endless arguments might be answered by evidence.

Aruba case is still a major story in US media, and not only in terms of tv minutes devoted and words printed. It ranks even higher when one tallies the "stories about the story," which are now literally everywhere in cyberspace and elsewhere.

I've searched, nearly fruitlessly, for editors/commentators/bloggers who devote serious argumentation to the case FOR more coverage. Reminds me of the time during Lewinsky-gate when press-about-the-press eclipsed the original piece, no pun intended. It's hard to measure objectively, but I think Aruba story has reached, or is about to reach, critical mass in this respect. Consider:

You're missing the main point here.

Sure, I can understand the frustration with people who are not "emotionally tied" to this case, and would like the focus of the MSM to be on news more "relevant" to today's political landscape.  But, try and look at it from the missing girl's family for a second...

I think the main reason there is any real movement by the Aruban authorities in their efforts to find Natalee is the pressure applied by the American media.  Without the Fox News' of the world, this case would be treated as just another American tourist gone missing, and not a second glance would be made.  If you could indulge is for a second, why isn't this case news worthy again??

What it all boils down to is a simple matter of supply and demand.  There must be a good reason this case has captured the imagination of not only the American public, but the public of the world at large.

Just my 2 cents,

Strike

Jansen says it makes sense to wait to arrest so you have evidence to question about. She is not under the impression that time was lost or evidence was lost during that time.

Speaking about Paulus - she said that Paulus gave some legal advice, she questions whether he gave them additional advice beyond that - such as no body, no case. Paulus obstructed case by doing this in her opinion. She says he confirmed that.

Do you consider the father a suspect she is asked - No we did not believe he was a suspect but she is disappointed that Paulus was released.

Asked what happens with no body - she says not wise to discuss this in public, it may take not days but weeks to complete investigation.

That in itself proves some knowledge on his part and some guilt on theirs.  Just my opinion, of course.  But there are a lot of things being said and done in this case the people who are innocent just don't normally say or do.

Now, why would he say that unless the boys are involved with something sinister?



To me, this is a huge revelation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why did he tell the boys No body, no charges????????????????

Jansen is saying they have no specific proof that Natalee is dead, no specific evidence. She says investigation is not at an impasse. She says they are looking carefully at the communications between the 3 boys now - text messages, etc.



I was thinking about this this afternoon........I think that more people are involved in this perhaps a closer, more broad look at the c phone records will offer a clue.  I think Joran Van der S surely has more buddies than thease other fellows we already know about. Could take some time to sift through all that info. to include days if not many weeks prior to the dissapearance.  I keep sensing that something is missing, like those two other adults mentioned to being at the M beach location could very well be associated to the alledged and, that their role may have been to dispose of the body or participated in her being held captive either on or off the island.

Wow..  prosecutor says they have the content of text messaging and chat sessions  from the suspects.


I'm glad we're finally getting this type of info, along with Paulus allegedly saying no body, no crime.  But isn't this the type of info we have wanted all along and been told that NO info can be released b/c it interferes with the aruban legal process???

Boy, isn't that the truth.  Yes, she says he admits he told the boys that.

This interview was the most new info I've seen in a week.   She says she did this interview so Americans can get to know her a little better, maybe have some confidence in her?  

 I think there is more coming up, I will let you know.

Discussions with an expert on Abrams now ... expert finds Jansens comment that there is no specific evidence of a crime important.

On the no body, no case - look, if the boys sat down with Paulus and discussed what might happen next, what the law is, what they should say - Paulus could have said "tell the truth" and then the boys say "but what if she doesn't turn up?" - they could be worried they would be blamed if no one finds her - not just worried because they did something but worried if she doesn't suddenly turn up and so she's not around to clear them -in which case Paulus would tell them no body no case.

We really have to be careful about interpretting comments after the fact on all sides.

Expert is Theodore Simon btw, - a defense attorney who has worked in Aruba.

Abrams says "all they have on Dad is what in the states we'd call it legal advice" and says "they don't have much on Dad."

Simon says "part of the info from Mickey Johns also suggests that the boys suspected Natalee would turn up in a few days"

Ok, let me clarify... this high standard that they are NOT allowed to misspeak, say something wrong, sweat too much etc when we allow the same to happen to the family and friends and think nothing of it.

The same criteria do not need be applied to individuals in the different circumstances you reference.  Here, suspects and friends, family of victim.  If friends/family were also suspects, then your reasoning holds.  However, they are not.  Separately there is an issue of context (at least regarding witness stories).  Discrepancies among story versions of other students on trip have not occurred with all 130 having placed themselves in one car with her.  As nancy drew mentioned, "apples and oranges."

And please...find me a young teenage boy who doesn't lie!

Again, this is not about all teenage boys.  What about or whether every teenage boy on this planet lies is of no relevance to a teenage boy in Joran Van der Sloot's situation.  His circumstance as a suspect changes the rules that apply to him.

Your logic would essentially render lying by anyone held as a suspect of a crime immaterial.  While all lies of people held as suspects are not proof of the suspected crimes, you cannot say "Everyone (innocent or guilty) lies, ergo lying must be ignored."

That in itself proves some knowledge on his part and some guilt on theirs.  Just my opinion, of course.  But there are a lot of things being said and done in this case the people who are innocent just don't normally say or do.


Innocent of what, though? Just for the sake of argument, let's assume that Deepak and Joran are telling the truth. As soon as they realized Natalee did not show up, they might all feel some guilt.

Deepak, for dropping her off with Joran, perhaps when he knew that one or both of them were under the influence of alcohol and/or recreational drugs, Joran because he left her alone on a beach, whether there were people there or not, that is not only a despicable thing to do, but even a 17 year old boy would know that chances are, she is going to have some unpleasantness, at the very least.

But, once again, young girls do not disappear often on Aruba. When you are young, you tend to think in terms of what usually happens.

Paulus, on the other hand, is older. He is more likely to be thinking of contingencies, even though it would be unusual for someone to kill a tourist, Paulus would know that you can't rule anything out, and by the time of the conversation, the boys themselves might be getting scared that "something bad" had happened to Natalee, and expressed this what-if, to which Paulus would tell them no body, no charges.

His saying that does not prove that they killed her, or that he knew that they did, only that the possibility that someone might have was being considered.

Thanks for your response Thirdstrike. To look at this story fr girl's family's perspective, which is a lot of what goes on at Scaredmondeys, is indeed informative and relevant, but not objective. That is the point of Malkin's post (and most of those others I listed).

Does that means Aruba story is not important? Of course not. I'm merely pointing to the (now) tons of press about how it is being covered out of proportion compared to other news, which is certainly a valid avenue of inquiry. Aruba: Newsworthy, yes. Worthy of the billions of words which have been devoted to it, likely not.

One could put your question, Thirdstrike, in another way: How does the parent of a recently-killed soldier feel about the coverage of Aruba's missing-person case? The subjective positon could be endlessly switched to include other victims and families of victims, many of whom would say that this case is over-reported. The main point of my post (which listed the links) was to get that perspective into the stream of discussion here.

Again, thanks for your thoughtful and considerate response/inquiry. (sometimes "thoughtful" and "considerate" get short shrift on this board, thus your post is truly appreciated).

Dittos.

Abrams is saying that what Paulus did was just what criminal defence lawyers do all the time here in the US and though it is frustrating for the prosecutor and to Natalee's family but is not illegal. Abrams also finds his waiver of the right not to testify against his son and that he also waived his right to not testify against himself.

Ted Simon is saying this is important - means that PVDS apparently does not know anything that is illegal. It does not mean tht the boys are guilty or innocent.

I wasn't too shocked when I heard he and Steve were set free.

What bothers me most about this situation is no one can get rid of every speck of evidence. Blood, if any, doesn't just clean up and go away. There is always the tiniest piece of evidence left behind. I am baffled by not one agency, Aruban, FBI, Equusearch, etc able to find something. (then again, I go back to...are we allowed to know?)

It's the first time the prosecution has shared anything about the investigation.  Basically they don't have much, and it could take weeks to gather more information, etc., she believes the father obstructed justice, he was brought in not due to that but as a suspect in the case.

There is more and a study of the transcript is necessary.  IMO it's a bombshell interview.

If daddy is the mastermind then it is no wonder he was turned down for the judge position for the HI story is not a well thought out alibi.  More like a story hastily made up by 3 boys with the collective intelligence of steve is closed who, we are lead to believe, provided an imaginary alibi to police, without having even been asked by the suspects, because he wanted to meet sixpak.

Unfortunately for her, she gave her theory a shot before a court of law and was turned down.  Now she should go back to concentrating on gathering what she does not have after a month of looking:  

a crime
evidence of a crime
evidence that the suspects committed the crime

One of the Fox "experts" today reminded the viewing audience that had this occured in the US, in order to arrest anyone for murder in this case, it would be necessary to have evidence of probable cause that the individual had killed her.

Vader Paul van der Sloot: 'Geen ljik, geen zaak'
Het Openbaar Ministerie van Aruba beschuldigt de vader van Yoran van der Sloot ervan dat hij het onderzoek naar de betrokkenheid van zijn zoon bij de verdwijning van Natalee Holloway ernstig heeft gefrustreerd.

In de NOVA uitzending van gisteren, dinsdag 28 juni, heeft vader Paul van der Sloot verklaard dat hij zijn zoon en diens vrienden alleen de procedure heeft uitgelegd om te voorkomen dat ze in paniek zouden raken.

Hoofdofficier van justitie Karin Janssen verklaart in NOVA dat "die aanwijzingen van vader verdergaan dan hoe de procedure er uit ziet. Er is vast komen te staan dat reeds enkele dagen na de verdwijning de vader met de jongens spreekt over het gegeven dat er zonder lijk geen zaak zou zijn."

De ouders hebben volgens Janssen een vriend die door de politie was verhoord, benaderd, om bij hun thuis te komen vertellen wat hij bij de politie had verklaard. Dezelfde avond is de inhoud van die verklaring door de advocaat van Yoran aan hem meegedeeld. Dat is op zijn zachtst gezegd nogal storend voor het onderzoek, aldus officier van justitie Janssen in NOVA.

Guys, I will be the last one here to bash anyone for their opinion.  I promise you that, unless of course it is aimed at Dash or Natalee who are completely innocent in what has heppened here (unless you believe Natalee ran away and you have every right to believe that too).  I personally still believe that this very much comes down to Joran, secondly of course Deepak and Satish and somewhere in there Papa VDS.  From where I come from, where and how I was raised, where my values and my beliefs fall, there was no reason for the made up story about what happened.  There was no reason to take these parents to the HI and show them the exact spot you did not drop their daughter off.  There was no reason to change stories several times and cause 2 innocent people to be jailed for a week.  BUT, what I am saying is that this is only my opinion and due to how I grew up and how I believe it is impossible for me to believe otherwise.  That does not mean I am right and you are wrong.  It just means that I can't open my brain to the theory that innocent people would so blatantly lie and hinder an investigation into the life or death of some young woman.  But that is only me.  It's not that I think you are wrong, it is only that my mind won't allow me to think that way.  My mind won't allow me to believe that somehow the family of Natalee is responsible for part of this mess because they were "rude" to Joran's family.  I have a daughter.  I would move heaven and earth to find her if she were gone and excuse me if I'm not exactly polite when the last person to see her does not welcome me in with open arms and pray with me and search with me.  But please do not take offense when I question what you ask and what you say.  It is only that my mind just doesn't open to those behaviors.

Hey Caligirl!!!!!!  Wessssttttsssiiiiidddde!!!

I agree with Nancy that the Martin Savidge interview with the lead prosecutor was huge!  It's the first real confirmation we have that there is no evidence to show a crime was committed.  She also confirmed that they do in fact have the content of the text messages and emails.  Possibly the biggest bombshell was that Paulus VDS told the boys "No body, no charges" shortly after Natalee went missing, and the prosecuter felt PVDS was obstructing the investigation.

Boys sit down with Paulus coz he's a lawyer
Boys ask what it all means legally
Paulus tells them what their rights are, to tell the truth, etc
Since there's a big commotion and she still hasn't turned up the Boys say - yeah, but what if she never shows up  - they're going to think we did something and she won't be there to tell them what really happened - are we going to jail?
Paulus says - if they don't have a body, they can't charge you with anything

This is as likely and possible as a scenario in which the boys say "heydad, we murdered this girl, so what happens next?"

Abrams is saying that what Paulus did was just what criminal defence lawyers do all the time here in the US and though it is frustrating for the prosecutor and to Natalee's family but is not illegal. Abrams also finds his waiver of the right not to testify against his son and that he also waived his right to not testify against himself.

Ted Simon is saying this is important - means that PVDS apparently does not know anything that is illegal. It does not mean tht the boys are guilty or innocent.


ALTHOUGH,  the prosecutor made it clear she believes he went beyond giving the boys legal advice...she believes he did obstruct justice.


Unfortunately for her, she gave her theory a shot before a court of law and was turned down.  Now she should go back to concentrating on gathering what she does not have [/b]after a month of looking[/b]:  

a crime
evidence of a crime
evidence that the suspects committed the crime


How about two weeks of really looking, after giving Papa and the amigos every chance to cover-up.

The prosecutor said that PVDS' "legal advice" - or worse, whatever that means - ocurred in the "first day after the disappearance."  This points to a story being cooked up before the arrival of Jug and his friends at the VDS residence on 5/31.

The prosecutor also found a problem in the parents' grilling of one of Joran's friends over what he said about Natalee at school.  She said that AVDS was part of this.  So I guess the mother will soon get hauled in and summarily released, too.

And... oh, yeah, "no evidence of crime."  I would infer from that that LE collected no forensic evidence.  Sounds like a real bang-up job.

The prosecutor seems diligent enough, but I hope that some pep talk from her isn't what changed the mood of Natalee's family last evening.  Because this case is FUBAR.

Now I'm totally not into attacking these kids but why are their statements allowed to be confusing and mixed up, but we are CRUCIFYING a kid and his friends and family down in Aruba for doing the exact same thing?

I've heard more kids from this trip contradict themselves on tv, I've heard the girl's mother change her story a few times too. Yet noone is questioning the heck out of them (unless maybe they are and we just don't know it).

What's good for one should be good for the other. It's the only way to make sense out of this whole thing and find this poor girl.



well, there is a big time difference, Natalee her mother, her father, her step-parents, her classmates nor her chaperones COMMITTED nor have been ACCUSED of a crime.
However, joran and the bros kalpoe were arrested because LE has information they committed murder and kidnaping. In a nutshell that is the difference. If nothing else, they lied to her parents, put 2 innocent men in jail, and did nothing to assist in the search for Natalee.
Of course now we know, joran's father has told him no body no crime, which only confirms horrible actions on this groups part in my mind.

My guess is that it was thought that it would make a more solid story if there were 3 of them saying we all dropped her off here and saw the man in black, etc, as opposed to having Joran be in the position he is in now: the last person to see her alive, according to the statements of his own two friends!

The man in black was something the boys came up with on their own. (on edit: in my opinion)
I think Paulus would be more likely to know that that would have some repercussions. (the Keep it Simple Rule)

Hmmm....Brown...good point. But if Natalee's bags were packed before she left, and IF we go with your scenario above..I wonder if anyone noticed a disruption or change in any of Natalee's belongings? I would hope that was asked of the roommates. Any remember? I am thinking we heard there were no signs that she ever returned to her room correct?

With regard to seeing NH's actual room-didn't realize it had more than one entrance/exit.  No wonder security cameras didn't pick her up if returning!!!  Sure, security would pick up on lobby, but doubt anyone who wished to enter room from beach front would be picked up.  Even if NH would have returned, maybe she did, there's a good chance she could have very easily not have been detected by cameras!

 

the last few years that i have went to the beach  the cameras   cover all sides of the hotel  you just have to look around for them     don't know how thay was set up  down there guess we will need to get arubagirl to go look for us


Title: massaging the media
Post by: iquitos on June 29, 2005, 07:12:18 PM
looks like somebody put a fire under janssen to do a little pr work since her efforts in her main line of endeavor seem to be going nowhere fast.  the dutch minister of justice was in the area earlier in the week.  the dutch press is finally going after the story, not just as a missing person case, which is what it still is after a month, but as a media circus.  this increases pressure like no amount of fox could ever do.  they don't get fox on aruba.  it is probably not your most watched cable progamming in the netherlands.   but when serious dutch news outlets start sending people out the story changes.  the holloways were on dutch tv before the v/d sloots.  i guess we will see janssend again tonight on Greta in another "exclusive".  hats off to martin for beating her.

Nope, you have to go through the hotel either through the front enterance (inside) or through the hotel/ outdoor restraunt part. Then you walk over a little bridge to the building we stayed in


She may have said that because the sliding door is locked as soon as it's closed.

The prosecutor said that PVDS' "legal advice" - or worse, whatever that means - ocurred in the "first day after the disappearance."  This points to a story being cooked up before the arrival of Jug and his friends at the VDS residence on 5/31.

The prosecutor also found a problem in the parents' grilling of one of Joran's friends over what he said about Natalee at school.  She said that AVDS was part of this.  So I guess the mother will soon get hauled in and summarily released, too.

And... oh, yeah, "no evidence of crime."  I would infer from that that LE collected no forensic evidence.  Sounds like a real bang-up job.

The prosecutor seems diligent enough, but I hope that some pep talk from her isn't what changed the mood of Natalee's family last evening.  Because this case is FUBAR.


I don't understand why Caren Jaansen has suddenly become a fountain of information, after stonewalling for the past month. I have no reason to disbelieve anything she is saying, but I can't understand why she's saying it. And why now?

No, room probably locked from the outside. You could go out but not come in unless you left the door open, which they wouldn't do because then they'd get robbed. Plus we know it was out to A beach but I think someone who's been there (Scott maybe?) said there was a wall -- kind of like a private patio area, not out to main beach.
So you'd have to come through the lobby (or I guess past the pool if you came from the beach) to get back in. But there were 50-100 MB kids out in both areas until 5 am Monday morning.

Dash's mom also has visited this forum as well.. if my memory serves me right.. her name was Arlee..? I believe that DASH was indeed a friend..classmate and on the trip.....
I saw the outside door to NH room last night on Greta.. it was very heart breaking to see NH mother there.. amoungst her missing daughters things..and having her passport along with hers in her purse ready to take her daughter home.  I dont doubt for a second that DASH wasnt for real or her mother..

OK...Karin Janssen also spoke with the American media! I guess she basically said what she said on Dutch television (NOVA) earlier today.

She is CONVINCED that Joran has to do with it. That says a lot.

By the way: Karin Janssen was a prosecutor (Officier van Justitie) in the Netherlands (Roermond) and she has a very good reputation. Nova said she had a role in the "Bende van Venlo"-case.
Now she's the headprosecutor (Hoofdofficier van Justitie) in Aruba (for a period of 3 years).

 i don't think we know with any precision who packed natalee's bags, whether she did, her room mates or the chaperone.  i seem to recall the roomies did.  personally, i think it doubtful she ever returned but the door certainly offers the possiblity of undetected entry.   why do you think great checked it out?  she is one nosey newsie and is pursuing all theories.  i found the scene last night very sad.  Poor beth is in a terrible state, barely holding on.  for greta nothing is sacred when it comes to a story.

Not to be a stickler, but "pagan" is generally used to refer to European pre-Christian religions, while Santeria is a syncretinization of traditional faith of Yoruba into Roman Catholicism.

Because the colonialists objected to the African slaves practicing their religion, it became the custom to "code" it,  first with innocuous signs (kind of like early Christians and the fish sign) , and later with the Catholic saints themselves.

For instance, Shango, or Chango, as it is sometimes spelled, is the monkey god in the Yoruba pantheon, but he is represented by St. Barbara, Elegua (or Legva) is St. Joseph, etc.

The Yoruba faith is also similar to that of Dahomey, where the same thing happened with slaves sent to Haiti. The syncretinized religion there is called "Vodu" or "voodoo" as Americans spell it.

In Brazil, it is Macombe, but in most of the Caribbean, especially Cuba, it is Santeria.

It's a reaction on what Paulus van der Sloot said on Dutch television yesterday. (On aruba they also have Dutch tv)
- She denies Paul only explained the 3 suspects the procedure.
- She defends the interrogation techniques.
- She denies the investigation has stalled. She STILL think the investigation is in a "crucial" phase.

The gamblers are not the Arubans, the Dutch, the bad guys the ruling class so or the children thereof so who are they?

Some people who were in the casino know where NH was brought?  Call me nuts but I think there is something to this Shango business.  If I were there, and the only thing I had to go on was 3 boys who are not talking I'd be looking for the stinky cave or house with the music on the dirt road.

Abrams is saying that what Paulus did was just what criminal defence lawyers do all the time here in the US and though it is frustrating for the prosecutor and to Natalee's family but is not illegal. Abrams also finds his waiver of the right not to testify against his son and that he also waived his right to not testify against himself.

Ted Simon is saying this is important - means that PVDS apparently does not know anything that is illegal. It does not mean tht the boys are guilty or innocent.


ALTHOUGH,  the prosecutor made it clear she believes he went beyond giving the boys legal advice...she believes he did obstruct justice.


Unfortunately for her, she gave her theory a shot before a court of law and was turned down.  Now she should go back to concentrating on gathering what she does not have after a month of looking:  

a crime
evidence of a crime
evidence that the suspects committed the crime


Unless there was a little back scratchin going on, and I think there was that day.

I don’t think the ‘sliding door to the beach” is important, but last summer I rented a condo which APPEARED to have a sliding door opening onto the beach, but in fact, did not.

The sliding door in my condo opened onto a  patio from which I could step out onto a large grassy/sandy area with the beach and ocean in view in distance. There were many plants and 20-25 foot tall trees growing in this area.

HOWEVER, the area off the patio (about 30’ x 150’) was entirely surrounded by a thorny hedgerow about four feet high.  Annoyed that I could not get to the beach this way (and thus saving a lot of steps), I investigated closely (crawling under the thorny hedgerow) only to discover that the grassy/sandy area was in fact on top of parking garage, and was about 10 feet above ground level on the other side of the hedgerow.

As I’ve read here many times, things are not always what they appear to be.

The prosecutor said that PVDS' "legal advice" - or worse, whatever that means - ocurred in the "first day after the disappearance."  This points to a story being cooked up before the arrival of Jug and his friends at the VDS residence on 5/31.

The prosecutor also found a problem in the parents' grilling of one of Joran's friends over what he said about Natalee at school.  She said that AVDS was part of this.  So I guess the mother will soon get hauled in and summarily released, too.

And... oh, yeah, "no evidence of crime."  I would infer from that that LE collected no forensic evidence.  Sounds like a real bang-up job.

The prosecutor seems diligent enough, but I hope that some pep talk from her isn't what changed the mood of Natalee's family last evening.  Because this case is FUBAR.


I don't understand why Caren Jaansen has suddenly become a fountain of information, after stonewalling for the past month. I have no reason to disbelieve anything she is saying, but I can't understand why she's saying it. And why now?


Because, like iquios said earlier, the dutch press are waking up and creating their own time- and storylines.
About monday. In this fase of the investigation the prosecution doesn't need to bring more and new evidence against the suspects to prolong their stay in prison. It's now up to the defence to disqualify the evidence already presented.
If they judge desides to keep them in prison for another sixty days another rule comes in play. Setting the trialdate for the pro forma trial. This date must be set within that 60 days period. At the pro forma trial a definitive trialdate wil be set. Until the start of this official trial the suspects are to remain in custody.

I've been following the Shango and Simian posts for several days and they are eerie.  One of them knew that PVS was going to be arrested two hours before it happened.  There could be something to either of them.  You have to be careful and make sure the posts are real because you don't have to login to post there so there has been a lot of fake posts claiming to be Simian.


It is somebody fooling around. There were posts that PVS would be arrested in plain English, here and elsewhere, DAYS before the fact.

There is nothing in any of those posts that has not been said, asked, speculated or opined.

In fairness, there is not much on heaven or earth regarding this case that has not been said, asked, speculated or opined.

Whoever is doing it is taking advantage of the principal demographic of this website. What sounds so strange and exotic to you is common as dust to people of Cuban, Dominican, etc heritage. You will be hard pressed to find a Cuban home, of any social class, that does not have a coconut decorated with cowrie shells by some door, somewhere.

I really believe that Dash told us early on in this that they were all packed before they went out that night because they would need to be up and ready for the flight the next morning.  Not sure why this seems to be such a sticky point for some, but I think that is what she said.  Natalee would have been packed before they even went to the bar that night because they all knew they would be out late and would not have time to pack in the AM.  I'm not sure of the layout of the HI, but from everything I've heard and seen, Natalee would not have been trying to enter through that outside door as it locked from the inside and I don't think backed up right to the beach she could have been walking from.  I believe that it has been established that she NEVER made it back to the hotel at all so the door really would be a non-issue here anyway.

Did you need a translation?(the best I can do lol) Father Paul van of the Ditch: No ljik, no affair' The Public Ministry of Aruba accuses the father of Yoran van of the Shut of it that he the investigation to the involvement of its son at the disappearance of Natalee Holloway serious has frustrated.  

In the NOVA broadcast from yesterday, Tuesday 28 June, has father Paul van of the Ditch declared that he be son and that one friends only the procedure has uitgelegd to prevent that they in panic would hit.  

Head officer of justice Karin Janssen declares in NOVA that "that indications of father verdergaan then how the procedure from it sees.  There is fixed come to stand that already single days after the disappearance the father with the boys speaks over the given that there without body no affair would be."  

The parents have according to Janssen a friend that by the police had been interrogated, approached, there their home to come tell what he at the police had declared.  The same evening the content of that explanation through the lawyer of Yoran at him has been communicated.  That is have been said disturbed on softest rather for the investigation, according to officer of justice Janssen in NOVA.


so the PARENTS called one of joran's friends and tried to get him to tell them what the friend told the police? Am I understanding that correctly?

Last night, when I watched dad's interview on nova, I posted on here he was a liar, mainly because he said looking so sincerely and earnestly, he was NOT a suspect--well we know that was incorrect ( I maintain he just wanted to say the words to people in the Netherlands before anyone else said he was) Now we know he is also immoral. He knows something or he would not, have ever given the no body no crime advice. Sick..... :evil:

In my opinion this horror had been fantasized about & was not just impromptu, the date may not have been fixed but the situation was being hunted.  Satish was dropped off to begin the establishment of the cell & text trail.  It is probable that Mr. VDS believed the first LIE, but once those 3 were picked up & questioned I believe that he delved much deeper into his professional knowledge of just why LIES are told.  It didn't take much from there to counsel these 3 males, including his son.  Give the heads up of what can/could happen down the line should they be picked up again for questioning.  Thus the creation of the drop off place, to open up the inventory of possible suspects that could have been near the Marriott on the beach.  I do not believe for one second that Ms. Holloway was on that beach, we can pretty much rest assured that she was never close to that place.  Where ever the deed took place it never came out of their mouths AT ALL.  This complete story is just that.  There is a multitude of reasons & do believe that this is SCREAMING in the mind of the prosecutor.  It wreaks of how an administrator familiar with process sets it up & she believes that he has.  During the taped interview with Greta V Mr. VDS was only concerned of his son's being able to HOLD UP.  I think that alone speaks volumes.

I am sad to say that there are only too many ADULTS that check their value systems when it comes to their loved ones.  I myself have never had that option available to me, My value system operates from my conscience not my heart.  People who feel that lies are necessary have every reason to be SUSPECT.

Mrs. VDS's statement "not wanting to believe it is a lie" reflects her desire to continue to ENABLE.  The statement by the Prosecutor was that both VDS parents invited the youngest Kalpoe brother Satish to ascertain the questions that were poised to him by LE.  Interesting that it wasn't Deepak, the oldest, isn't it?  They also were trying to find out what Deepak had told his youngest brother, IMO.

I hope I am wrong, but of course I doubt it.  Just needed to rant, now going back to my lurking.

Could be an indirect way to "ask" the judge to dismiss her from the case, since no progress is made. :wink:


Could be, or could be that she's fed up. Wasn't it her who arrived at the courthouse with "armloads" of documents, to argue that PVDS should remain in custody? And they had replaced the previous judge, supposedly because he had "seen too much of the evidence," (sic) and the new judge spent a few short hours, going over thousands of pages of documents, and didn't see ANY evidence.

Maybe she couldn't stomach the cover-up any longer, and this was one way to get thrown off the case.

looks like somebody put a fire under janssen to do a little pr work since her efforts in her main line of endeavor seem to be going nowhere fast.  the dutch minister of justice was in the area earlier in the week.  the dutch press is finally going after the story, not just as a missing person case, which is what it still is after a month, but as a media circus.  this increases pressure like no amount of fox could ever do.  they don't get fox on aruba.  it is probably not your most watched cable progamming in the netherlands.   but when serious dutch news outlets start sending people out the story changes.  the holloways were on dutch tv before the v/d sloots.  i guess we will see janssend again tonight on Greta in another "exclusive".  hats off to martin for beating her.


Perhaps because the VDS's were out there lying? Perhaps she knew she had to defend the investigation, I am glad she did.

You guys are doing a great job, don't waste a thought on someone as useless as Michelle.  Michelle who cares.  Help out, or go count your marble collection.

With regard to seeing NH's actual room-didn't realize it had more than one entrance/exit.  No wonder security cameras didn't pick her up if returning!!!  Sure, security would pick up on lobby, but doubt anyone who wished to enter room from beach front would be picked up.  Even if NH would have returned, maybe she did, there's a good chance she could have very easily not have been detected by cameras!


Hmmm....Brown...good point. But if Natalee's bags were packed before she left, and IF we go with your scenario above..I wonder if anyone noticed a disruption or change in any of Natalee's belongings? I would hope that was asked of the roommates. Any remember? I am thinking we heard there were no signs that she ever returned to her room correct?
 i don't think we know with any precision who packed natalee's bags, whether she did, her room mates or the chaperone.  i seem to recall the roomies did.  personally, i think it doubtful she ever returned but the door certainly offers the possiblity of undetected entry.   why do you think great checked it out?  she is one nosey newsie and is pursuing all theories.  i found the scene last night very sad.  Poor beth is in a terrible state, barely holding on.  for greta nothing is sacred when it comes to a story.


I was just thinking the same thing that early in disappearance either a friend or Fox reported that when Natalee had not returned and they were preparing to go to airport one of her friends packed her bags.

I don't think this is anything important, but, way back when Natalee first went missing I came across an ad placed online by Deepak Kalpoe to sell his computer. (I saved a screen capture of the ad if anyone wants to see it.) I just checked the website again and it says;

"This ad has expired or was removed by the ad owner.
Not all details are available anymore."

<url=http://www.arubamatch.com/aruba/Corsair_Flash_Drive/cat/1000/sub_cat/1000/lang/EN/code/b83cb633d0335b6e794fc24dae89378e/index.php">LINK</url>

This may have no bearing on the present situation at all because the date on the ad is 20-03-2005. But I thought someone might have an interest in it. It contained his email addy, phone number, etc. Since the email addy was a link, the link is of course no longer visible in the screen capture.

IMO, if someone is 200% sure someone else is not guilty it's either:

1)  They themselves committed the crime/abducted her, whatever
2)  They saw someone else commit the crime

If PVDS is saying that because "J told me that he didn't do it and I believe him", well, we know J does lie.

Any other reasons someone could be that sure?

My speculation theories are on overload!   :shock:

Some people who were in the casino know where NH was brought?  Call me nuts but I think there is something to this Shango business.  If I were there, and the only thing I had to go on was 3 boys who are not talking I'd be looking for the stinky cave or house with the music on the dirt road.

Karen Janssen said PAUL called one of Joran's friends to his home to question about what he (yes, she said "he") said to the police, a couple of days AFTER Joran was arrested.
(That friend must be our mysterious "Lorenzo".  :?:)
The same evening Joran's lawyer told Joran what his friend had said to the police. hat's why Karin said PVDS is frustrating the investigation.

I don't know if this has been said, I just logged on, but don't you imagine her mother has gone through her bags to see if she could find any hints or clues?  So I really think that the bag are irrevelant at this point.  Even if I pack the night before there are things I leave out that I will need in the morning, such as tooth brush, hair brush, make-up, etc.....

It is somebody fooling around. There were posts that PVS would be arrested in plain English, here and elsewhere, DAYS before the fact.

There is nothing in any of those posts that has not been said, asked, speculated or opined.

In fairness, there is not much on heaven or earth regarding this case that has not been said, asked, speculated or opined.

Whoever is doing it is taking advantage of the principal demographic of this website. What sounds so strange and exotic to you is common as dust to people of Cuban, Dominican, etc heritage. You will be hard pressed to find a Cuban home, of any social class, that does not have a coconut decorated with cowrie shells by some door, somewhere.


Maybe so but as you say there is nothing that has not been speculated upon.  And the stories these boys are telling just don't add up.  If you believe that the Kalpoes are not directly involved then they have no motive to lie.  If they are directly involved then why is Joran calling Deepak on his phone while or shortly after the crime?  And if the Marriot beach story is the truth then where is natalee?  She tripped on a coconut on the way back to her room, became onconcious, fell in the water and fl;oated out to sea?  There is more to the story and Shango's descriptions make as much or more sense than anything else being floated around here.

The underground parties are well known.  In light of todays drug bust it seems that there are ties to the South American drug trade.  High grade X and other drugs are readily available in Aruba.  Pushers apparently stake out the hotels and find new customers.  The locals probably don't build sand castles.  I live 200 yards from the beach and I haven't been there in months.  The locals play in the casinos and elswhere.

Quote from: "Gerben aka Pays Bas"

Because, like iquios said earlier, the dutch press are waking up and creating their own time- and storylines.
About monday. In this fase of the investigation the prosecution doesn't need to bring more and new evidence against the suspects to prolong their stay in prison. It's now up to the defence to disqualify the evidence already presented.
If they judge desides to keep them in prison for another sixty days another rule comes in play. Setting the trialdate for the pro forma trial. This date must be set within that 60 days period. At the pro forma trial a definitive trialdate wil be set. Until the start of this official trial the suspects are to remain in custody.


Interesting Gerben thanks, I thought there was something different about this hearing,

I'm not sure why people keep going back to the door in Natalee's room going out to the beach.  It had a latch on the inside and can't be opened from the outside unless left unlocked (which they surely wouldn't do with their belongings in the room).

We *know* Dash is legit.  She'd never seen Natalee's room and assumed it was like hers with a balcony.  Not a big deal!

Quote from: "altruist"
In my opinion this horror had been fantasized about & was not just impromptu, the date may not have been fixed but the situation was being hunted.  Satish was dropped off to begin the establishment of the cell & text trail.  It is probable that Mr. VDS believed the first LIE, but once those 3 were picked up & questioned I believe that he delved much deeper into his professional knowledge of just why LIES are told.  It didn't take much from there to counsel these 3 males, including his son.  Give the heads up of what can/could happen down the line should they be picked up again for questioning.  Thus the creation of the drop off place, to open up the inventory of possible suspects that could have been near the Marriott on the beach.  I do not believe for one second that Ms. Holloway was on that beach, we can pretty much rest assured that she was never close to that place.  Where ever the deed took place it never came out of their mouths AT ALL.  This complete story is just that.  There is a multitude of reasons & do believe that this is SCREAMING in the mind of the prosecutor.  It wreaks of how an administrator familiar with process sets it up & she believes that he has.  During the taped interview with Greta V Mr. VDS was only concerned of his son's being able to HOLD UP.  I think that alone speaks volumes.

I am sad to say that there are only too many ADULTS that check their value systems when it comes to their loved ones.  I myself have never had that option available to me, My value system operates from my conscience not my heart.  People who feel that lies are necessary have every reason to be SUSPECT.

Mrs. VDS's statement "not wanting to believe it is a lie" reflects her desire to continue to ENABLE.  The statement by the Prosecutor was that both VDS parents invited the youngest Kalpoe brother Satish to ascertain the questions that were poised to him by LE.  Interesting that it wasn't Deepak, the oldest, isn't it?  They also were trying to find out what Deepak had told his youngest brother, IMO.

I hope I am wrong, but of course I doubt it.  Just needed to rant, now going back to my lurking.

So, NL, I would think it would have to be Lorenzo.  If it was after Joran was arrested, Deepak and Satish would be in jail too.  The only other person I know of that was brought in and questioned was Lorenzo (and SC who was not a friend of Joran).  Very interesting.  So Papa gets this information and relays it to Joran's attorney who then relays it to Joran?  Am I getting that right?

I have viewed the nova interview.  she said tow important things not yet mentioned here.  P v/d S is interfering in the investigation.  He told the boys more than procedure. He told them " a few days after the disappearance" that if there is no body there is no case.  After a friend was questioed as a witness he called the friend to come over and tell him all about the questioning and the friend went.  This is all moot for now since the judge ordered his release, which only rarely happens.  Sounds like she did it for spite more than anything.   She also said the interrogation is within legal standards and is taped and available to the judge.

What was the insinuation you resent? That most of the posters on here are not familiar with Caribbean syncretinized religions? That most are not Cuban.

Don't be resentin'  You can learn all about the religions, and if it's the suggestion that you might not be Cuban displeases you, make friends with Cubans in your community and maybe you can become an honorary one and learn how to make some really cool things to eat in the bargain!  :D

I have watched the NOVA interview again (it's online: go to www.novatv.nl, "WO 29" and "complete uitzending).

Karen Janssen said PAUL called one of Joran's friends to his home to question about what he (yes, she said "he") said to the police, a couple of days AFTER Joran was arrested.
(That friend must be our mysterious "Lorenzo".  :?:)
The same evening Joran's lawyer told Joran what his friend had said to the police. hat's why Karin said PVDS is frustrating the investigation.



PVDS sure is going out of his way to get the stories straight.  I hope hes re-arrested he obviously mastermnded a coverup for his son who killed natalee.  Every single bit of information points in that direction.

This is what Dash said:

That's not true... her room was by mine... You have to go through the hotel to get to it[/quote]

Sorry dash...someone posted here yesterday they saw Beth on TV in her/Nat's room and they saw the door with sand....so it was posted that you could get to the room from the beach.

Not true?[/quote]


Nope, you have to go through the hotel either through the front enterance (inside) or through the hotel/ outdoor restraunt part. Then you walk over a little bridge to the building we stayed in.

Thanks for your response Thirdstrike. To look at this story fr girl's family's perspective, which is a lot of what goes on at Scaredmondeys, is indeed informative and relevant, but not objective. That is the point of Malkin's post (and most of those others I listed).

Does that means Aruba story is not important? Of course not. I'm merely pointing to the (now) tons of press about how it is being covered out of proportion compared to other news, which is certainly a valid avenue of inquiry. Aruba: Newsworthy, yes. Worthy of the billions of words which have been devoted to it, likely not.

One could put your question, Thirdstrike, in another way: How does the parent of a recently-killed soldier feel about the coverage of Aruba's missing-person case? The subjective positon could be endlessly switched to include other victims and families of victims, many of whom would say that this case is over-reported. The main point of my post (which listed the links) was to get that perspective into the stream of discussion here.

Again, thanks for your thoughtful and considerate response/inquiry. (sometimes "thoughtful" and "considerate" get short shrift on this board, thus your post is truly appreciated).

Dittos.
--MC


Again, I underatand your point, and it's a valid one.  But again, I feel the relevance is more about how it's perceived by the viewer (or, poster in this case).  

In general, the MSM presents news that is negative to begin with.  It's what sells.  And, unfortunately, it's the reality of life.  Look, of course we'd all rather be reading about something else...and this case never happened.  Natalee Holloway would be safe at home...enjoying her summer, and we'd be finding some other topic to discuss here.  At least I know I would.

As for the comparison to the efforts of our military, and the loss of life associated with it...what can I tell you?  It's as sad a story to read about a mother having to answer that doorbell and having the chaplin and a few uniforms telling her that her loved one has paid the ultimate price for freedom.  In a strange way though, this does tie in to the Holloway case.  An American in a country not of their own...a potential for foriegn "attackers"...an attempt by mutliple forms of govt trying to "spin" things to the mold in which benefits them most...it's all there.  And, I agree with you...the loss of life is equal throughout.  No one can be made to be more important.

I thank you for you consideration and respect.  Hope to hear from you in responce.

Point well taken Charlotte, re: scheme of things. But if you haven't read MM's books, then how can you, in an informed way, "stand by" your opinion that she is uninformed and speaks on topics she doesn't know about? From what I've seen, Michelle is almost overly informed, backing up her positions with stats and examples beyond what is needed. Having "seen her on Fox," and basing your opinion solely on that, you'd be engaging in the activities you (wrongly) ascribe to her. Besides, I seriously doubt any of this "bothers her," as she's publicly all over the map on dozens of other topics, busy writing her national column, and working on her next best-seller.

KackyLacky obviously has her own strongly-held opinion about Malkin, though we can't be sure as to the reasons since they are unstated. All we have to go on is her (Kacky's) short sentence which rises no higher than groundless name-calling.

I thank you both (Kacky and Charlotte) for posting on this topic. If more of us would exchange ideas and opinions, no matter that we obviously disagree in many cases, I honestly believe that we'd all be better off in the long run. Thank you for your ideas.

If he doesnt directly hes covering for his brother which is enough in my book to keep him in jail.

With regard to seeing NH's actual room-didn't realize it had more than one entrance/exit.  No wonder security cameras didn't pick her up if returning!!!  Sure, security would pick up on lobby, but doubt anyone who wished to enter room from beach front would be picked up.  Even if NH would have returned, maybe she did, there's a good chance she could have very easily not have been detected by cameras!


Hmmm....Brown...good point. But if Natalee's bags were packed before she left, and IF we go with your scenario above..I wonder if anyone noticed a disruption or change in any of Natalee's belongings? I would hope that was asked of the roommates. Any remember? I am thinking we heard there were no signs that she ever returned to her room correct?

For the official record:

We have talked many times with Dash. She is a teenager going through a very very traumatic experience.

Please stop nitpicking every comment and statement she has made, as she is doing the best she can from a very difficult memory.

Thanks

Tom


I second that.  Dash and every kid on that trip has their own version of what happened FROM THEIR OWN PERSPECTIVE.  Anyone here who has an ounce of information on doing interrogations KNOWS a group like this has various information to give...depending on their perspective and where they were at the time, etc.  To continue this BS going after these kids, especially with obvious lack of understanding of the tenants of Investigation 101...is absolutely wrong...and only speaks to the "state" of the person/people doing so.

I personally trust that the FBI got this all correct.  They would NEVER make an assumption based on one or two interviews from the teens.  The FBI knows that stories are different...and NOT because the kids are lying.

I have been so pained by the attacks on these kids.  Again, those doing it IMO have deep seated personal anger NOT related to this case.

Please find some compassion or kindness...or leave it alone!

Today, I picked up my mail and was moved to tears as I found a Natalee bracelet mailed to me from one of the kids who used to come here.  She didn't ask for money, but thought I cared enough to have a bracelet.  Receiving it, and the kindness of the person who sent it meant the world to me.

Edited to add:  The kind of people going after these kids continually are the same kind who find it fun to harass waitresses and taxi cab drivers...they are a breed unto their own...their lives are so "small" they find little pleasures in going after the little people.

I will NOT apologize for being so blunt, it's up to tough old broads like me to tell it like it is!!!  Even though I'm not all that old.


That was so kind, nancy.  I'm sure you will wear it with pride & some sorrow.  I do have one question tho.  How did they get your name & address?

Nancy Grace's interview with SC and Carl Penholz's statements about the JVDS attorney's statements (Deepak's attorney stated) 8 changes by JVDS and 4 substantial ones, are the most significant reporting since last week's probe with Greta and the PVDS/AVDS.  

This should make the Holloway/Twitty camp feel a bit better that JVDS isn't going to escape.

Psychic Detective: Yes, we are all here (at SM) bec/ we are interested in this case. I'm merely pointing to media (Malkin is one of many) who have an interesting opinion about where this all fits and why it does or does not merit major int'l news coverage. That you have not agreed w/ MM's views might be that you are diametrically opposed to her politics, or just haven't approached her prodigious writings. But the fact remains that her opinion (regarding this case) has merit, is widely held, and says much about US media.

Thank you both for your ideas and posts.

I'm pretty sure that in the Abrams interview on MSNBC Janssen said that PVDS gave the legal advice and made the "no body no case" comment on the first day after the disappearance.  This is not meant to question your representation of the NOVA interview of Janssen.  But I think we agree there's a BIG difference between the two statements.

<<After a friend was questioed as a witness he called the friend to come over and tell him all about the questioning and the friend went.>>

In the Abrams interview on MSNBC Janssen included AVDS in this move with the friend.

Quote from: "altruist"
In my opinion this horror had been fantasized about & was not just impromptu, the date may not have been fixed but the situation was being hunted.  Satish was dropped off to begin the establishment of the cell & text trail.  It is probable that Mr. VDS believed the first LIE, but once those 3 were picked up & questioned I believe that he delved much deeper into his professional knowledge of just why LIES are told.  It didn't take much from there to counsel these 3 males, including his son.  Give the heads up of what can/could happen down the line should they be picked up again for questioning.  Thus the creation of the drop off place, to open up the inventory of possible suspects that could have been near the Marriott on the beach.  I do not believe for one second that Ms. Holloway was on that beach, we can pretty much rest assured that she was never close to that place.  Where ever the deed took place it never came out of their mouths AT ALL.  This complete story is just that.  There is a multitude of reasons & do believe that this is SCREAMING in the mind of the prosecutor.  It wreaks of how an administrator familiar with process sets it up & she believes that he has.  During the taped interview with Greta V Mr. VDS was only concerned of his son's being able to HOLD UP.  I think that alone speaks volumes.

I am sad to say that there are only too many ADULTS that check their value systems when it comes to their loved ones.  I myself have never had that option available to me, My value system operates from my conscience not my heart.  People who feel that lies are necessary have every reason to be SUSPECT.

Mrs. VDS's statement "not wanting to believe it is a lie" reflects her desire to continue to ENABLE.  The statement by the Prosecutor was that both VDS parents invited the youngest Kalpoe brother Satish to ascertain the questions that were poised to him by LE.  Interesting that it wasn't Deepak, the oldest, isn't it?  They also were trying to find out what Deepak had told his youngest brother, IMO.

I hope I am wrong, but of course I doubt it.  Just needed to rant, now going back to my lurking.
[/i]


This is a pretty clean take and one with insight.
I admit, I don't like PVDS or his elder son. I didn't like what I heard about how they reacted when the parents showed up looking for their girl.

Has anyone heard this/ If it's been commented on here before, I haven't seen it, I can barely keep up with all the threads and posts! I am especially interested in ArubaGirl's opinion on this because if she has seen Natalee's mom out and about, she might confirm or deny this.

I would quote my source if I could remember, it was on another forum in a similar format to this and has also been mentioned on the CourtTv boards, but on the original forum it was mentioned on (Trip Advisor maybe?)....someone is in Aruba with her husband, and this lady is buying Internet time by the half-hour and posting to the message board.

She said that they see Natalee's mom around, and has heard her talking about how nice the locals are being to her.....the locals are hugging her mom, giving her kind words and support, and then she turns her back and is walking away from them, they are flipping her off and making fun of her and being very disrepectful. The lady said both she and her husband have seen this behavior a number of times, and also heard the locals who've been speaking with Beth talking crap about her when she isn't around- then being nice to her face when she crosses paths with them again.

I am SURE this is not ALL locals by any means, but it was said that this is happening quite a bit and a lot of the islanders are just ticked off and want the Holloway family gone and over with.

Are some of the locals really being this openly hateful or rude? It's one thing to hate the things Americans are generalizing about Aruba, and to want the whole thing to be wrapped up and go away but another thing entirely to be hateful to poor Beth....even if Beth has had snaps of temper, she is grieving and just wants her daughter.

People there (tourists) claim to have seen this firsthand. ArubaGirl, do you see things like this happen? I hope not... :(

Police weren't notified until 9 pm that night because the chaperone thought when she told beach patrol, they were going to report it to the police. When chap called police at 9 to find out what was going on, they didn't know anything about it. that's when it got officially reported, but i don't know if word was put out until the next day. Right, arubagirl?


Title: Would they call Lorenzo Joran's "friend"?

So, NL, I would think it would have to be Lorenzo.  If it was after Joran was arrested, Deepak and Satish would be in jail too.  The only other person I know of that was brought in and questioned was Lorenzo (and SC who was not a friend of Joran).  Very interesting.  So Papa gets this information and relays it to Joran's attorney who then relays it to Joran?  Am I getting that right?


doesn't joran have any friends other than this Loranzo?  :?


Max Arendsz was also brought in for questioning.

<<He told them " a few days after the disappearance" that if there is no body there is no case.>>

I'm pretty sure that in the Abrams interview on MSNBC Janssen said that PVDS gave the legal advice and made the "no body no case" comment on the first day after the disappearance.  This is not meant to question your representation of the NOVA interview of Janssen.  But I think we agree there's a BIG difference between the two statements.

<<After a friend was questioed as a witness he called the friend to come over and tell him all about the questioning and the friend went.>>

In the Abrams interview on MSNBC Janssen included AVDS in this move with the friend.
in the dutch interview she repeated the after few days (na enkele dagen) for emphasis. i did not see the whole abrams interview.  this is something to follow up in the transcripts or online if they run the abrams interview on msnbc site.

Why do we need a picture of "Lorenzo"?  :roll:

What we need to know is WHY Steve Croes went to the police. Did Paul paid him? Or his "client" (one of the Kalpoes)?
Are the Kalpoes also changing stories? If so, then THEY have also something to do with the disapearance of Holloway.

In NOVA they said the judge-commisioner will decide whether or not to prolong the detention of the 3 suspects on Monday. But maybe they meants Tuesday. I don't know.

"We need more technical assistance", is what Karin said to the American media. But to the Dutch media Karin said she thinks she has enough investigators and material to solve this case.
Maybe Karin wants to please the American public, Natalee's family, Bill O'Reilly and the Aruban Prime Minister, who all want the Dutch Marine to join in....

:evil:

Has anyone heard this/ If it's been commented on here before, I haven't seen it, I can barely keep up with all the threads and posts! I am especially interested in ArubaGirl's opinion on this because if she has seen Natalee's mom out and about, she might confirm or deny this.

I would quote my source if I could remember, it was on another forum in a similar format to this and has also been mentioned on the CourtTv boards, but on the original forum it was mentioned on (Trip Advisor maybe?)....someone is in Aruba with her husband, and this lady is buying Internet time by the half-hour and posting to the message board.

She said that they see Natalee's mom around, and has heard her talking about how nice the locals are being to her.....the locals are hugging her mom, giving her kind words and support, and then she turns her back and is walking away from them, they are flipping her off and making fun of her and being very disrepectful. The lady said both she and her husband have seen this behavior a number of times, and also heard the locals who've been speaking with Beth talking crap about her when she isn't around- then being nice to her face when she crosses paths with them again.

I am SURE this is not ALL locals by any means, but it was said that this is happening quite a bit and a lot of the islanders are just ticked off and want the Holloway family gone and over with.

Are some of the locals really being this openly hateful or rude? It's one thing to hate the things Americans are generalizing about Aruba, and to want the whole thing to be wrapped up and go away but another thing entirely to be hateful to poor Beth....even if Beth has had snaps of temper, she is grieving and just wants her daughter.

People there (tourists) claim to have seen this firsthand. ArubaGirl, do you see things like this happen? I hope not... :(


I'm sure it happens and wouldn't be surprised.  Tourism supports 95% of the population directly or indirectly; the only one's who are immune from this is good ol' editor of Diario and his family...they have "other income" of course.

I have to say that the news gets more disturbing every day. And not just because of what appears to be a cover-up, but because of a certain “island mentality” that seems to demand a cover-up, with anybody but local boys held accountable for Natalee Holloway’s disappearance. We have seen the operation of “swift island justice” before, in the Virgin Islands, and in Jamaica, where local police departments were quick to find non-resident scapegoats, and where they were quick to bring any meaningful investigation to a halt.

In a way, I can understand that “island mentality.” Residents of a small island, like Aruba, have to live with their neighbors, sometimes for generations. And tourists, and security guards, and day laborers come and go. And it’s much easier to blame an outsider, when anything goes wrong.

But it seems that Aruba’s “island mentality”goes beyond that. It seems to treat tourists and outsiders as if they were of no importance whatsoever. We see headlines that read, Crisis Blown Out of Proportion, and hear the groans of Arubans who want nothing more than to see this case go away. And that is profoundly disturbing, because we are dealing with a human life here. We even have Arubans throwing debris into the water, while men from Equusearch search for possible remains of Natalee Holloway.

The way I see it, Mickey John (a Granadan) was supposed to be the fall guy in this investigation, along with his partner, Alexander Jones. And, while the residents of Aruba were quick condemn the lack of etiquette of Jug Twitty’s “Alabama posse,” when it stopped at the gate of Paulus van der Sloot in the wee hours of May 31, there was not one whimper of protest (or outrage) when 14 police officers rammed down the door of Mickey John in a “pre-dawn raid” and arrested him in his underwear. Not one whimper of protest.

Not one Aruban has come forward to express outrage at that double standard. Not one Aruban has come forward to apologize to Mickey Jones. Not one.

IF YOU PURCHASED A NEW CELLPHONE over the past 18 months or so, odds are that one of the features listed in small print on the side of the box was "E911 capable." Or, as in the case of my latest Motorola, "Location technology for piece [sic] of mind." Perhaps you asked the salesman to explain the feature, and he replied that it means that cops can home in on your phone in case of an emergency, a potentially important perk should you ever find your hand pinned beneath an immovable boulder in rural Utah, as Aron Ralston did recently. Assuming he could have gotten a signal, an E911-capable phone might have saved the young backpacker the pain of having to amputate his own arm.

The only factual think we know about him is that he was brought in for questioning and released.  Everything else is rumor.  But why can't we find any solid information on him?  But the fact that he was brought in for questioning certainly points toward the fact that the LE must have thought there was a chance he was involved in the case, imho.


Ok, where do we have this confirmed from? I havent heard anything about this guy in the msm.
Which part of "what do we have this confirmed from?"  did you have in mind?  MSM reported he was brought in for questioning and released.

You don't have to have good signal, you just have to have a high saturation of towers to track most new phones.  The phone will connect with the tower with the best signal.  This information is logged and you can get a general idea of the path of a phone.

It will tell LE if the boys truely did seperate or if they were together for the time in question.  

The carrier does matter though.  The phone won't connect to a carrier tower that it is not looking for.

Then I am still looking for that link from someone earlier today that said this was on FOX and CNN at noon the very same day she was found to be missing, the day the flight left that she wasn't on.  And I am still asking then why on earth there was any story made up by the time Beth got to the VDS home.  Some speculated that the police may have given them a heads up since the chaperone had notified the police and VDS has police contacts.  But as I said before, Papa was in bed asleep, Joran was possibly not even home (some speculate that he was).  If police would have given a heads up (?), then it would have had to have been after 9 and I doubt, given the circumstances, they would have had time to make up this story and Papa would have been relaxed enough to be in bed asleep having just heard about this a few hours before.  So, back to the concept of "If they did no wrong, why make up a story before anyone even knew she was missing?".

All this talk about this Lorenzo guy, yet we don't know a single thing about him.  We don't know if he was invovled in this case at all.
The only factual think we know about him is that he was brought in for questioning and released.  Everything else is rumor.  But why can't we find any solid information on him?  But the fact that he was brought in for questioning certainly points toward the fact that the LE must have thought there was a chance he was involved in the case, imho.


Ok, where do we have this confirmed from? I havent heard anything about this guy in the msm.
Which part of "what do we have this confirmed from?"  did you have in mind?  MSM reported he was brought in for questioning and released.
Rumors, all the rest.  Arubagirl reported some of the rumors.  
**Believe we know for sure that his (step?) father had a car business and committed suicide several years ago.  Rumored to have drug problems and/or to have been involved with drugs.
**Lorenzo van Rijn (van Gijn) rumored to be the illegitimate son of PDVS, about 26-27 years old.
**At one point there was a picture of a spraypainted house shown on Fox, the day they pulled in Lorenzo for questioning; at this point, someone (rumor, unremembered source) said he was crazy, people were very afraid of him.  
So, there you have what I know.  What I speculate is another thing.


Sorry for not being more specific, I was referring to where we had heard specifically from the MSM that Lorenzo van Rijn had been questioned.  I don't remember hearing his name in any MSM and I have been watching since day one.  I had heard reports of people being questioned, but never any specific names.

arubagirl, do you know if the Kalpoe brothers' father is in the business of importing and exporting cars?

And do you know if they started the ferry service in March that goes between Aruba and Venezuela?

Professor.

THEY ARE NOT CONSIDERED TO BE LOCAL. NOT!LOCAL!

I don't see the need to apologize to Mickey Jones, as I don't see where I wronged him.

Second, we don't want the case to go away, we want the U.S. media to go away. Or start being consistent.

Also, the boys aren't considered to be local.


Arubagirl your comment re what is local caught my eye...what is "local" then? Are the VDS's local?  Are any Hollanders local?  Is Arubagirl local?

OK...if you want to elaborate, that'd be great, too.  Thanks.

Motive.

Motive (Courtesy of Legal-Explinations.com)
n. During a criminal investigation, the reason most likely why someone committed a crime. For instance, jealousy, greed, revenge, or part of a theft. Evidence of a motive is admissible at trial, but it is not necessary to have proof of a motive in order to prove a crime.  (my highlight)

I highlight the above to make the following point.  Why would a suspect abduct a person such as Natalee or rape a victim?  It is because of [/i]hate or a means to inflict pain, humiliation or perhaps revenge on another person or those associated with that person.

What could possibly motivate Joran Van der S to commit such a crime?  How much does he like the U.S. ?  Is he hurt because his former American girlfriend dumped him?  Did he love her?  Did this cause him great pain?  His mother said that the girl broke it off saying something similiar to that Joran was to weak and that she needed a "stronger man".  Does this woman look at all like Natalee Holloway or is a victim from America enough of a motive?  I hear that being labeled weak in Aruba is especially humiliating.  So, is humiliation part of the motive too?  What about Paris Hilton, his obsessions with her too.  Is that his view of America?  Not all of the girls that party are one in the same.  Yes, believe it or not I've heard that a good many do in fact say "NO".  

Who would be so malicious to use a drug on a person to render her helpless and foce sex upon her just for pleasure?  Could it be that he feels weak and powerless?  Weak and without any self-control?  So, he gets into shoving matches and slams people into walls while they are guests to his island?  He feels no shame for any of this???  Why should he?  He has no regard for the law or the rules of his community on and on.  Why should he, he's broke them at will and noone holds him accountable, including the Polis.  He drinks much.  Alcoholics have no control of themselves, this we know. CC's looks the other way. He gambles and finds himself behind the eight-ball and risking yet more.  On a Sunday night he looses some more........the ball gets bigger, makes him mad.

He looks for someone to blame, everybody but HIMSELF.  Will it be a victim he redirects his anger towards? He is in therapy to manage his anger, his rage.

I've judged a few people in my life. Joran doesn't tell the often if ever or at least when he knows he's at fault. We are to presume he would not lie some more?  What father, what member of the court would expect a suspect to not tell the truth?  They take everybody down a notch with what you do.  So much so that some would soon pull the plug, to retaliate and forego vacationing in fear they have no recourse. But, you've done it so many times you do it again....Looking out for your self-interrests, you and dad.

No body.  No crime?  That's denial ladies and gentlemen.

Hi Shellbell,
About that imaginary GPS "law"... I thought you are doing some confusion with a cellular technology incorporated in the new phones: see GPRS.
Now, as some of us already posted here, ANY cell phone COULD BE traced due to the "trigonometric" implantation of the towers. :wink:

PS - GPS is satellite "tracing" and what you are trying to tell us is a complete different concept (used since the beginning of the cell phones use and always available to the LE agencies) but now regulated by the specification E911 http://www.fcc.gov/911/enhanced/

Question for people in aruba, at what time was the fact that NH was missing known to the public?  I'm wondering this because why would the boys make up a story or get advice from their father on the monday she was reported missing, the only reason I can think of (assuming their innocence) is that they were scared of all the publicity. BUt if it wasn't known she missing yet why make up a story?


Police weren't notified until 9 pm that night because the chaperone thought when she told beach patrol, they were going to report it to the police. When chap called police at 9 to find out what was going on, they didn't know anything about it. that's when it got officially reported, but i don't know if word was put out until the next day. Right, arubagirl?


if true, this was very badly handled.  they reported the thing 12 hours later!  what is beach patrol?  where was holiday inn management and security?  this just shows aruban hospitality industry used to people going missing and then reappearing after they sober up.  no wonder "jug" was compelled to get down there and fnd natalee.  the people on the ground were inept.  holiday inn general manager should have been on the phone to neighboring hotels and to senior police officials first thing that morning.

I'm accepted as local for the sake of my parents. But the fact that I was born in the Netherlands as opposed to Aruba is like, ooh, okay, you're not really Aruban.

Considered local: You were born here. You're parents have lived here for a long time (15 years not enough). You speak Papiamento fluently and without an accent, you celebrate the same things, you know the Aruban anthem, you work here. Also, Joran van der Sloot's father was 'send' here by Holland. So, he didn't come because he wanted to. Not local.

I think there is some confusion in terminology on this cell phone gps issue.  Like ShellBell was saying all new phones must have the ability to be tracked to a tower(s) as they are used.  However, I think some people are interpreting that to say that on the main menu of their phone it should say GPS, or something along those lines, hit that button and get a gps location.  Two totally different things.

And who in the heck still has a bag phone, LOL?

Regarding the cell phone GPS.  You may not even know that your phone has it.  We had a truck stolen last year, and the phone was in it.  That evening, I called our carrier, Cingular Wireless, and ask if they could tell if the phone had been used.  They said they could tell us the following day.

The next morning when I called, they said it had been used, and in 48 hours, they could tell us what towers were used to connect.  I was surprised, as we didn't know anything about GPS, and the phone was already a year old.  

It unfortunately, was not the reason we found the truck or the thieves, but it was nice to know that it works.  And as far as I know, it works WAY faster now.  

Sorry, do not know how it works anywhere else, just how it worked in Georgia.

That was the ORIGINAL report. Dutch photographers. Later reports said they weren't sure WHO was throwing debris into the water. And if you stop to think about it, you realize that Dutch photographers would have no motivation to do such a thing, and every motivation to maintain a professional attitude, when on the job, because there's alway the possibility that any hooliganism would be CAUGHT ON TAPE.

There is a post on here from earlier today that very much tied in this last name of Lorenzo to an area in Holland where VDS was known to have been living at the time Lorenzo would have been born.  I don't remember who the poster was, but they pointed out that if Lorenzo were conceived by PVDS and mother then married before Lorenzo was born, that last name is very known in that same area where PVDS was located at that time.  Don't know, myself, just repeating what I read in a post here earlier when the age of Lorenzo was brought into question according to when PVDS moved to Aruba.  Did Lorenzo's family come from Holland too?

Not one Aruban has come forward to express outrage at that double standard. Not one Aruban has come forward to apologize to Mickey Jones. Not one.

If it was Aruba - Miami, there is a flight that leaves at 9, so meeting at 8.30 in the lobby would be way.too.late. the next Aruba-Miami flight leaves at two. The Aruba-Atlanta flight leaves at 3.30 (I think).

But it appears that, whatever their status is, it is much greater than that of a mere tourist, or security guard or day laborer.

Whitney, it was, and thanks a lot for flying it.

It was 12 noon and there is a flight that leaves 2pm.


However, Dash did say that they had to meet in the lobby at 8:30  to count heads and head to the airport and this is when they became alarmed that Natalee wasn't there.
 

on tv natalees roomies said they were worried early and expressed their concerns to chaperone.

Absolutely.  I may question the values and morals of the 3 sitting in jail and a few others involved, but never the Aruban people who have shown up more than once to help this family find their daughter.

Hi Shellbell,
About that imaginary GPS "law"... I thought you are doing some confusion with a cellular technology incorporated in the new phones: see GPRS.
Now, as some of us already posted here, ANY cell phone COULD BE traced due to the "trigonometric" implantation of the towers. :wink:

PS - GPS is satellite "tracing" and what you are trying to tell us is a complete different concept (used since the beginning of the cell phones use and always available to the LE agencies) but now regulated by the specification E911 http://www.fcc.gov/911/enhanced/


Having GPS and E911 compatable are the same thing.  Called my old boss to make sure.  And yes they do have to be on the new cell phones.

First question.. Personally ashamed, no. And does the other security guard not count or something? Do I think the cops were wrong, yes. Tell me, do you feel ashamed for everything that the cops in your country do wrong/

Communicate your views effectively on this messageboard. Think twice about how you'll be perceived before you hit submit.

We are here to discuss ALL views on this case. Observations and questions about the suspects, the victims, and their families are not "bashing" as long as they are supported by clear and articulate thoughts which are sensitive to the passionate feelings surrounding all of them. Just because you find a post to be opposing your view or theory does NOT make the other poster "bashing" or maligning. Don't worry - if we think the post is bashing or maligning, we'll take the appropriate steps to be certain it doesn't happen again.

This board is not a chat room - your manners should be quite evident in your posts and relative to the topic at hand. There are 100-300 of you on here at any given time; frankly we can't be everywhere at once and nor should we be expected to be. It is time for the adults to "play nice."I expect you will do as I've just stated, otherwise I assure you there will be bans, which will be unannounced and not warned, for 5 days for those of you insist on not showing some decency and understanding towards others.

For those of you who routinely post thought-provoking, respectful posts, we salute and thank you, and ask that you continue to provide the example to other Monkeys.

Quote from: "m.a. johnson"
Motive.

Motive (Courtesy of Legal-Explinations.com)
n. During a criminal investigation, the reason most likely why someone committed a crime. For instance, jealousy, greed, revenge, or part of a theft. Evidence of a motive is admissible at trial, but it is not necessary to have proof of a motive in order to prove a crime.  (my highlight)

I highlight the above to make the following point.  Why would a suspect abduct a person such as Natalee or rape a victim?  It is because of [/i]hate or a means to inflict pain, humiliation or perhaps revenge on another person or those associated with that person.

What could possibly motivate Joran Van der S to commit such a crime?  How much does he like the U.S. ?  Is he hurt because his former American girlfriend dumped him?  Did he love her?  Did this cause him great pain?  His mother said that the girl broke it off saying something similiar to that Joran was to weak and that she needed a "stronger man".  Does this woman look at all like Natalee Holloway or is a victim from America enough of a motive?  I hear that being labeled weak in Aruba is especially humiliating.  So, is humiliation part of the motive too?  What about Paris Hilton, his obsessions with her too.  Is that his view of America?  Not all of the girls that party are one in the same.  Yes, believe it or not I've heard that a good many do in fact say "NO".  

Who would be so malicious to use a drug on a person to render her helpless and foce sex upon her just for pleasure?  Could it be that he feels weak and powerless?  Weak and without any self-control?  So, he gets into shoving matches and slams people into walls while they are guests to his island?  He feels no shame for any of this???  Why should he?  He has no regard for the law or the rules of his community on and on.  Why should he, he's broke them at will and noone holds him accountable, including the Polis.  He drinks much.  Alcoholics have no control of themselves, this we know. CC's looks the other way. He gambles and finds himself behind the eight-ball and risking yet more.  On a Sunday night he looses some more........the ball gets bigger, makes him mad.

He looks for someone to blame, everybody but HIMSELF.  Will it be a victim he redirects his anger towards? He is in therapy to manage his anger, his rage.

I've judged a few people in my life. Joran doesn't tell the often if ever or at least when he knows he's at fault. We are to presume he would not lie some more?  What father, what member of the court would expect a suspect to not tell the truth?  They take everybody down a notch with what you do.  So much so that some would soon pull the plug, to retaliate and forego vacationing in fear they have no recourse. But, you've done it so many times you do it again....Looking out for your self-interrests, you and dad.

No body.  No crime?  That's denial ladies and gentlemen.



Good point.

Regarding the cell phone GPS.  You may not even know that your phone has it.  We had a truck stolen last year, and the phone was in it.  That evening, I called our carrier, Cingular Wireless, and ask if they could tell if the phone had been used.  They said they could tell us the following day.

The next morning when I called, they said it had been used, and in 48 hours, they could tell us what towers were used to connect.  I was surprised, as we didn't know anything about GPS, and the phone was already a year old.  

It unfortunately, was not the reason we found the truck or the thieves, but it was nice to know that it works.  And as far as I know, it works WAY faster now.  

Exactly.  That is where I am also.  But I worked for Alltel.  Bag phones were the bomb though!!!!  Wish I would have been smart and kept mine!

Sorry, do not know how it works anywhere else, just how it worked in Georgia.

I'm accepted as local for the sake of my parents. But the fact that I was born in the Netherlands as opposed to Aruba is like, ooh, okay, you're not really Aruban.

Considered local: You were born here. You're parents have lived here for a long time (15 years not enough). You speak Papiamento fluently and without an accent, you celebrate the same things, you know the Aruban anthem, you work here. Also, Joran van der Sloot's father was 'send' here by Holland. So, he didn't come because he wanted to. Not local.

My mother's definition is much more strict. She's like 3 generations at the minimum.

Thanks, Arubagirl... you said because of the "sake of your parents..." Just guessing then, but your family goes like waaaaayyyyy back Aruba, then.  LOL...you were that blip on the screen born in NL....

I've noticed that many of the "law types"...the women, have euro-NL-colored eyes mixed with (my guess) the brown of the indigenous Arawak people.  

Finally, as a curiosity, what is the Islamic influence into Aruba that has populated the "so-called MOTHER Country", i.e., NL?

All new cell phones have them.  That is a fact, I know this.  I worked for cell phone companies.  And I am 99.5% sure the law is the same in Aruba.


It may not be a law in Aruba but I'm sure that the phones have them because they are built in since 2004. I don't think they would make special phones for certian countries.


I think that the phones do have GPS in them, but:

1. It is cheap GPS so it could be off by some number of feet or meters, and
2. The phone companies probably don't' store a "history" of where a phone has been.  They log where a phone is, but may not retain where the phone was.

Expensive GPS units are, well, expensive.

Tim Miller from Equusearch was just on Larry King with Nancy Grace and he said he was hopeful about their search tomorrow in the ocean and they just showed Joran Van Der Sloot being transported by car today and he looked up at the camera and he seemed to be smiling! I don't think he realizes what kind of trouble he might be in.
Great job by Martin Savidge on MSNBC tonight getting that interveiw with the maiin prosecuter!

Joy


Or maybe he realizes that his advice from his father to hold out, no body no case is paying off.

dragonfly remember, this Joran VDS is a top student (in a school of 90, OK) but also is at the top of his class, is "well-liked" (on a closed island), and plays poker, well.  Plays poker, well.

If you put an alibis together BEFORE the Twittys show up, you have a father who not only plays poker with you but also advises you BEFORE the Twittys show up, and you're a smart kid....and your father is your main advisor....is it so hard to extrapolate that the extension is such a behavior that says, "as long as I can hold out with a story...and there's no body..."   this will be over in "my" favor.

Jug said on Dutch television that the FBI would have cracked the boys within a few days. Eh...yeah right. Just like in the USA, in Aruba you have the right to remain silent.
Even if Paul didn't explain them "no body, no case", "no body, no case" is common sense, isn't it? The boys don't talk/tell the truth, because they know it's very hard to convict them without strong evidence (=>body).
But because the 3 suspects don't tell the truth, we know they have something to do with Natalee's disappearance.

Jug is sometimes a bit arrogant. And how he kissed Beth in front of the cameras today...Ewwww.. 8)

Arubagirl - you are a class act and a blessing to those of us who seek the truth in this case.  I have never been to Aruba, and don't know anyone from there personally, but I suspect you represent the vast majority of people from your 'corner' of the world - the majority being those who are sincere, genuine, honest, and generally fun-loving people who get along in peace with people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and faiths.  It's sad that the evil minority can trigger the kind of generalizations and stereotypes that surface when emotions run high.  

May the higher being you believe in bring peace and happiness to you, NH, and all of her family and friends.

First time poster but I’ve been lurking as a guest for a while so please be kind. This may not amount to a hill of beans but I have been searching on the guy named Lorenzo Van Rijn since you guys have been trying to find information on him. I haven’t been able to find anything with using the first name Lorenzo yet but I have found something I thought was kind of interesting concerning a company with the name of Van Rijn in Aruba. It appears that there are 3 business that may be affiliated with one another.

1st business Van Rijn IM- EN Export N.V. looks to be an import/export business from the listing. What I really thought was kind of odd as I kept on looking was that I also found 2 other companies which were and automotive company and a diesel company listed all at the same location. All 3 of these companies are located at the same address in Bacadera in Aruba. I’m not sure but I think this may be a shipping/cargo area.

2nd business known as R & S Diesel Service has the exact same phone number as the Van Rijn Im- En Export N.V. business.

3rd business known as R & S Automotive and Industrial Parts N.V. sell Volkswagon cars which you guys have mentioned that Lorenzo was connected to a Volkswagon dealership on the board before. This business has a different phone number but the exact same fax number as R & S Diesel Service.

This may have absolutely nothing to do with anything and may all be normal occurrences for businesses in Aruba but it kind of bothered me since the last name (Van Rijn) is the name on an import/export business. My apologies to the companies I’ve written about if I’m out in left field with all of this. My daughter and I came up with this information in hopes that it might be helpful in finding Natalee.

your statement about "no body, no case" caught my eye; I'm sure you wouldn't denigrate your one lone case that refutes your statement; don't have the citation, but the defendant profusely admitted to having killed the victim...believe it was his wife...think it was a PBS TV show...maybe not...but there is such a case...now, use your creativity to think about the murdered in your own country that are unsolved....and review their case histories...

Hi Shellbell,
About that imaginary GPS "law"... I thought you are doing some confusion with a cellular technology incorporated in the new phones: see GPRS.
Now, as some of us already posted here, ANY cell phone COULD BE traced due to the "trigonometric" implantation of the towers. :wink:
PS - GPS is satellite "tracing" and what you are trying to tell us is a complete different concept (used since the beginning of the cell phones use and always available to the LE agencies) but now regulated by the specification E911 http://www.fcc.gov/911/enhanced/
Having GPS and E911 compatable are the same thing.  Called my old boss to make sure.  And yes they do have to be on the new cell phones.

Ok... take the "bycle". Ah btw, do not forget to inform the FCC of that... because they don't know, yet. 8)

If Beth talks to the media about what she knows it might hurt the prosecution - I know this might sound odd but I have almost felt that she does not care as much about what happens to the boys as finding her daughter - she has said - Let me have my daughter and I will go home - so perhaps very soon she will speak up - and let the chips fall . . .

And if you weren't guilty of doing it yourself, how could you be so certain that whoever did do it (someone unknown to you supposedly) would do something with it so it wouldn't ever be found, i.e, the advice from PVDS?

On CNN:  Jug Twitty not surprised about Joran changing his story.  Doesn't understand why Aruban LE can't crack the boys.


Jug said on Dutch television that the FBI would have cracked the boys within a few days. Eh...yeah right. Just like in the USA, in Aruba you have the right to remain silent.
Even if Paul didn't explain them "no body, no case", "no body, no case" is common sense, isn't it? The boys don't talk/tell the truth, because they know it's very hard to convict them without strong evidence (=>body).
But because the 3 suspects don't tell the truth, we know they have something to do with Natalee's disappearance.

Jug is sometimes a bit arrogant. And how he kissed Beth in front of the cameras today...Ewwww.. 8)

didn't see the kiss thing, but I have a psycho-blab about the Jug dynamic, too...[that's not an attribution to whom Jug, is.  It's unfair, he's not a suspect...that's it[/b]

your statement about "no body, no case" caught my eye; I'm sure you wouldn't denigrate your one lone case that refutes your statement; don't have the citation, but the defendant profusely admitted to having killed the victim...believe it was his wife...think it was a PBS TV show...maybe not...but there is such a case...now, use your creativity to think about the murdered in your own country that are unsolved....and review their case histories...


- Jug Twitty: I think he's a great guy. But sometimes he is a little bit arrogant and I have the feeling that Beth trust the Aruban system, but Jug doesn't.
- "No body, no case": I'm not 100% sure, but I thought yesterday the NOVA reporter said that only one "no body, no confession"-case has been solved in the Netherlands since WWII. So it IS possible, but you have to admit it's very hard to PROVE that the 3 suspects killed Natalee.
Where we should put our hope on (if we want the 3 guys to be convicted):
- they should find the body or at least DNA material
- Maybe the content of the text messages, phone calls, chat transcripts, conversations with other people, etc. support the theory of the prosecutor?

What the Aruban authorities hope is that new information (text messages, phone calls, etc) will make the 3 guys to tell the truth. I doubt the content of the text messages, phone calls, chat transcripts, etc. can prove Natalee is dead, but who knows...

I think the interview with PVDS is one that was done by a Dutch reporter.  

Now to MSNBC...Karin Janssen no proof that Natalee is not alive...and no one has said she is dead.

Important/crucial phase in investigation...technical information gathering now.  Have much infomration about their communcation after Natalee disappeared.  Clear picture of where they were and what they said.

If Beth talks to the media about what she knows it might hurt the prosecution - I know this might sound odd but I have almost felt that she does not care as much about what happens to the boys as finding her daughter - she has said - Let me have my daughter and I will go home - so perhaps very soon she will speak up - and let the chips fall . . .
At this point I know I might be feeling this way.  If my daughter were dead, nothing in the world could bring her back to life.  Justice?  You can lock someone up forever, but to me that justice is cold comfort.  What I would want is TRUTH, no matter how horrible.  Never to know, always to wonder, would be a neverending torment.
Off topic, but I had a little Yorkie who disappeared one day.  Just out of the blue. Looked, posted, canvassed neighborhood for months, to no avail.   If he were alive today, he'd be 32 years old, so I accept he's dead.  But, I cannot pass a couple walking a Yorkie without stopping to engage them in conversation, just to check and make sure, really sure that they don't have my Hairy.  And that's just my dog.  Don't want to even go there if it were my daughter.

trying to type as he speaks and get it all down for the non-Fox viewers:

Charles Croes - he's claiming that he went to Joran's house before anyone else - called by someone (Jug?) to check on "a cell phone call" because he runs a cell phone company. He met Beth at 11:30 at a gas station then was supposed to go to the HI with Beth et al but instead went to several beaches and found some kids who told him where Joran lived. Beth had given him a description of the car Natalee was seen in and these kids said that must be Joran ... (does not make sense since it wasn't Joran's car)

He went to Joran's house then called Beth and the police told him to come back and meet them and then they all went to the VDS house together ... so far the rest mostly follows the standard timeline except that he has the police sounding their sirens, etc,

more to come

Croes claims someone (Jug I think?) is a friend of his and he called CC for help with a cell phone question.

(he is not super-credible yet - a lot of hesitancy and odd gaps somehow - could be language, figuring out what he's not supposed to say, telling a story to insert himself, nervous on tv, or ... just something off so far)

said Joran said "let me help, let me help" and Joran told him that NH was coming on to him and dancing provocatively and that she wanted him to take her home - says Joran was very uncomfortable. He says Joran said she was doing drugs and drinking and that he was drinking. he then said they were driving around, took her to the lighthouse to show her to the lighthouse and that she was acting so crazy that they wanted to take her home and that they took her back to the HI and she fell, etc -

Greta is saying (and this was the lead-in to the story) that he told this story before anyone knew she was missing - but how could he not know there was a problem since they arrived with police and family and posse - I don't get the time issue here? Anyone help on this? this guy talked to him at the same time the posse was there, etc so how is that "before anyone knew NH was missing"???

Sounds to me that he thinks Joran may be innocent.  he made him sound TOTALLY different than Beth did that night.

Steve Croes RENTS phones. He must have been talking about a call made with Natalee's phone. I doubt Joran or the K brothers rent their phones.

This is at the house.  It was at the hotel where the father started telling Joran to quit talking and the dad I believe had to be asked to leave the hotel lobby.

I heard Jug say that at first Joran offered to help.

ONCE AGAIN THE EMAIL DEEPAK WROTE IS PLAYING IN.  It was legit, croes said he joran was asked by nat to win her money back.  There was sex involved. She had been doing drugs and drinking according to Joran.

I don't believe the Deepak email is a true account of what happened...I believe it's nothing more than the 1st alibi they came up with.

Is there a crematorium on Aruba?

And where does the garbage from the hotels go? Is it dumped?

So, just to be clear, is this about the conversation that took place when Holloway/Twitty + the police confronted the Vandersloots at their home the night after the disappearance?

Croes claims someone (Jug I think?) is a friend of his and he called CC for help with a cell phone question.

(he is not super-credible yet - a lot of hesitancy and odd gaps somehow - could be language, figuring out what he's not supposed to say, telling a story to insert himself, nervous on tv, or ... just something off so far)

said Joran said "let me help, let me help" and Joran told him that NH was coming on to him and dancing provocatively and that she wanted him to take her home - says Joran was very uncomfortable. He says Joran said she was doing drugs and drinking and that he was drinking. he then said they were driving around, took her to the lighthouse to show her to the lighthouse and that she was acting so crazy that they wanted to take her home and that they took her back to the HI and she fell, etc -

Greta is saying (and this was the lead-in to the story) that he told this story before anyone knew she was missing - but how could he not know there was a problem since they arrived with police and family and posse - I don't get the time issue here? Anyone help on this? this guy talked to him at the same time the posse was there, etc so how is that "before anyone knew NH was missing"???


Because they didnt know she was missing until that night.  Yet the boys came up with the story by their own reports before that.

Says Joran said he met Natalee at the casino, she had lost money and he helped get it back (REMEMBER WONDER WOMAN DEEPAK EMAIL).

Natalee called him her lucky charm.

Natalee coming on to Joran, dancing provocatively.


My mouth dropped all through this interview.   :shock:

where is this guy coming from? anyone heard from him before?? and now we hear that he gave this guy the lie about the HI. all this before this "meeting" with all 3!!!



LIke I said - he had been posting on aruba.com - talking about there was more to story than anyone knew.  Those posts are gone as aruba.com took them down.  He regularly posts on alot of the Aruba message boards because he owns a business.  He does have a profile at this site:

Yes, he says Joran seemed nervous, but anxious to help.... not arrogant.

OH NO... Mark Fuhrman. He never does his homework before spouting his mouth off.

The e-mail was created to substantiate their story should it be questioned.
