Suspects Released, Natalee's Mom Leaves Aruba (Updated)Topics: Natalee Holloway
Joran Van der Sloot, the 18-year-old son of an Aruban judge, left jail first, CNN reported. Shortly afterward, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe walked out.Meanwhile, Natalee Holloway's mom leaves Aruba:
Prosecutors said despite their release, the three remain under investigation. They had asked the court to hold the Kalpoe brothers for another eight days, and Van der Sloot for another 30 days.
"I will never allow my daughter's voice to be silenced, but I have exhausted all my avenues in Aruba,'' Holloway Twitty said before leaving on a flight home to Mountain Brook, Ala.HarryTho emails in an Update: In this AP article, Anita van der Sloot says her son is a "good boy" and feels that Natalee Holloway is alive, as Aruba's prime minister says that "the investigation into the disappearance of a U.S. teen "will not cease" despite the release of the three suspects." He says this even as Joran prepared to leave the island for Holland.
From the same article:
"Van der Sloot left Monday night on a flight to Holland, where he will attend college, his mother said. Anita van der Sloot said Joran will attend an 'international school in the Hague' and pleaded for the media to leave him alone."The rest of the article is a repeat of earlier articles.

The Holloways apparently have $1,000,000 in a trust acccount in Alabama as reward money for finding Natalee alive.
When all hope is gone, this money can be put to good use. It can be used to form an organization devoted to preventing disappearances such as Natalee's.
The first thing that should be promoted is to have all high schools teach students, particularly young girls, methods of self defense.
Had Natalee been trained, she might have been able to disable her attacker by jabbing her fingers in his eyes. This would have ended his attack instantly. Of course, this should only be done when one's life is at stake, since it can permanently blind a person.
A gentler method is to pretend to have some dread disease such as AIDS.
Some method of finding disappeared persons needs to be developed. We have radio transmiters to track wild animals. We also have the Lo-Jack system for cars. Why not a system for humans?
A small transmitter that a girl or child can trigger with a code to transmit an RF distress signal would help. It should contain a transponder that can give their location when they are missing.
Eventually a tiny implantable transponder might be developed. An attacker could not remove it, and it would revela the missing person's location.
We might even
