Natalee Holloway Suspects Identified: Dutch Authorities And MSM Not Telling Full StoryTopics: Natalee Holloway
Dan, at Riehl World View, has the scoop on the Natalee Holloway story that the MSM isn't providing. Perhaps this needs to get as much exposure as possible in order to get to the bottom of this quickly. Is this a Chappaquiddick, Aruba style?
A security guard from the casino attached to the hotel identified one of the detainees as Mickey John of Granada, and the other only as Elvis from the nearby island of Bonaire.
Also, a Georgia resident known only as Lisa is said to have spoken to the FBI regarding an encounter with one suspect during a recent trip to Aruba. She claims to have seen him near her hotel on more than one occasion before being approached one day while jogging. The man allegedly first offered to sell her marajuana before propositioning her.
The conflicting stories emanating from Aruba are unprecedented, important facts are going unreported at least for the present, and additional information as regards a less than safe Aruba are surfacing.
A Current Affair is identifying, Joran Van der Sloot, the son of a dutch judge, as one of the individuals with whom Natalee Holloway is reported to have left Carlos And Charlies at approximately 1 AM on Sunday night. The young man appears to be active athletically, as well as with the ladies judging from his group of friends at tickle.com. Comments and other research point to a nice young man and solid student, nevertheless, he and his friends total absence from the reporting in light of their obvious connection to the Dutch elite of Aruba might not do much to put the skeptical at ease.
Conflicting stories as to whether the judge's son and his two friends have left the island are also being reported. At the same time, some sources suggest the search for Natalee Holloway is slowing down, while others suggest just the opposite. What is certain is that every Aruban involved in the case seems to be making it a point to reinforce what a safe and crime free island Aruba is.
Yet, WCVB-TV in Boston is painting another picture of the tiny island.
A common thread links the Holloway case to a pair of Massachusetts women who say they were sexually assaulted on the island after leaving the popular nightclub called Carlos and Charlie's.
The North Shore woman, who does not want to be identified, said that she came forward with her story as a warning to others. She said that two years ago in Aruba, she befriended a hotel worker, who she says turned against her.
"On my last night there, I decided to go out on a date with him. I thought it would just be a friendly, harmless affair, and it turned out to be a disaster," she said. "He took me to the local bar in Aruba, Carlos and Charlie's. He bought me drinks, and after we left the bar, he proceeded to take me to a parking lot where he assaulted me."
And yet another TV report states there is an additional young American woman missing from a cruise off Aruba since back in 1998.
As reported extensively here, there are many issues involved in this case yet to be made known, let alone explained.
An attractive Alabama teenager left an Aruban hotspot with a self-proclaimed reputation for heavy partying in the company of a judges son. Purportedly he and his friends claim to have driven her to a light house, had relations with her then left her at her hotel all within an hour of leaving the club. But no security cameras have yet to verify her arrival and somehow between the curb and the door she allegedly became victim to two unemployed individuals purported to be drug dealers and "known" to the police.
And much of this we learn from a Dutch Justice Minister who presumeably has at least a professional relationship with one of the first group of boys' Fathers.
Justice Minister Rudy Croes said police questioned and released two Surinamese nationals and a native of the Netherlands who said they dropped Holloway off early Monday at the Holiday Inn where she had been staying, rectifying police reports that the three men had been Aruban students. He said the three men were residents of Aruba.
Accidental Death Not Ruled Out in Case of Missing Alabama Teen
Authorities told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday that one of the three is the son of a Dutch justice ministry official who has lived on the island for more than 10 years and is studying at a school there.
In an important reversal, officials also said the two arrested men have not been charged as had been announced previously. Attorney general spokeswoman Vivian Van Der Biezan said authorities initially misspoke while trying to explain the situation to foreign reporters in English, a second language in this Dutch territory.
Noone should want to queer an investigation for the sole purpose of sensationalizing the news; however, at the same time, noone should want the powerful elite of a small island nation to go light on the details simply to preserve the island's reputation among potenial tourists, or even worse.
Hopefully the days ahead will clear up this growing mystery; but can an America who has experienced a Chappaquiddick afford to turn a blind eye to anything but the clearly communicated truth in the case of Natalee Holloway?
