Evening Natalee Holloway UpdateTopics: Natalee Holloway
Excerpts of updates on Natalee:
FoxNews is reporting that "While the father of Joran van der Sloot , the 17-year-old held in Aruba, was himself arrested Thursday, the teenager's mother said her son has changed the story he initially gave police.
From Riehl World View: "Van der Sloot Father arrested. Brief communication from island - at least some in search party feel optimistic they will find Natalee soon - I'm unable to say why, or if just a feeling - hope to have more tonight. EquuSearch head said to be arriving today, will review previous findings and team will set strategy for search when rest of group arrives."
Also from RWV:
After discussions with two independent sources on Aruba this evening, it would appear that a strong working theory by some close to the investigation is that Paulus Van der Sloot was directly involved with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, up to and including disposal of her body after the fact.
This could explain Joran Van der Sloot's unusual interaction with Satish and Deepak Kalpoe during interrogation, as first reported here.
That interaction involved Joran Van der Sloot changing his story immediately after being called a liar by one of the Kalpoe brothers for stating that he had picked him up at the beach.
Mariaine Cruz, spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office, told MSNBC that the elder Van Der Sloot was taken into custody at about 2 p.m. Aruba time. Cruz said the arrest was "based on the reasonable suspicion that he is involved in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. He is currently under interrogation at a police station."

You would have thought by now that with the biased slow-moving (snail-paced) Arubian judicial system, a renowned-psychic may have been called on or volunteered their services on this. If there's a chance that Natalee is still alive or worst, disposed of. Perhaps a psychic could provide better clues in this matter than the junk that I've been reading either from the authorities or the wild rampant rumors. Be assured Aruba, the States will keep up the pressure and get to the bottom of this & all this Island's dirty doings...
