xx Appeals made in Holloway case
« Reply #45 on: Jul 13th, 2005, 05:46am »

HANNAH WOLFSON
News staff writer


A panel of Aruban judges heard competing appeals Tuesday in the case of a missing Mountain Brook teen, but isn't expected to rule until Thursday.

Joran van der Sloot, 17, protested a judge's order to hold him for 60 more days. Police say van der Sloot might have been the last to see Natalee Holloway before she disappeared May 30.

At the same time, prosecutors appealed the judge's decision to release two Surinamese brothers who had previously been detained in the case. Deepak Kalpoe, 21, and Satish Kalpoe, 18, were freed last week after the judge ruled there wasn't enough evidence to continue holding them.

The prosecution also appealed the judge's decision to allow van der Sloot's lawyers to be present during police interrogations and to allow his father, a judge in training, to visit him.

A three-judge panel is expected to issue a ruling Thursday on all three appeals.

Meanwhile, an American search team helping hunt for Holloway decided to extend its stay through Sunday.

Texas EquuSearch director Tim Miller said the group had planned to leave today, but received two surveillance cameras that will allow members to recheck some areas of concern.

The Video Sticks will allow them to see inside wells, manholes and other inaccessible areas, Miller said. He said they had been held up in customs.

"We really feel as though there's more stuff we can do," said Miller, who has a team of 10 on the island. "We just would not be comfortable thinking that maybe there's something we missed."

The team, a nonprofit group of volunteers, is focusing in large part on an area around a fisherman's shack near the beach where van der Sloot said he and Holloway spent time during her last night on the island. The Surinamese brothers said they dropped the two off after leaving a nightclub.

Van der Sloot has insisted he left Holloway on the beach unharmed.

xx Aruba prosecutors seek brothers' re-arrest
« Reply #46 on: Jul 14th, 2005, 05:16am »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) A judge heard competing appeals Tuesday in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, with a defense lawyer seeking the release of a Dutch teen in the case and prosecutors asking for the re-arrest of two brothers from Suriname.

Brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, and 17-year-old Joran van der Sloot were among the last people to see Holloway, 18, of Mountain Brook, Ala., before she vanished on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

The hearings were closed and the judge was expected to confer with two colleagues before issuing a ruling Thursday.

Separately, a U.S. organization that has been searching for Holloway for more than three weeks said it planned to halt its efforts and return home Sunday.
We want to feel in our hearts we did everything," a tearful Tim Miller, director Texas EquuSearch, said at a news conference.

The first hearing Tuesday was an appeal of a judge's ruling earlier this month that there was insufficient evidence to hold the brothers in Holloway's disappearance. Satish Kalpoe, 18, and Deepak Kalpoe, 21, had been in custody since June 9, when they were arrested along with van der Sloot. They were released on July 4.

The Kalpoe brothers left court with their lawyers after brief hearings. Van der Sloot left the courthouse handcuffed and hiding his face from the news media in the custody of authorities.

David Kock, the lawyer for Satish Kalpoe, said he was confident the younger brother would remain free.

"There's nothing new against my client," Kock said outside the courthouse. "I'm speculating but perhaps the prosecution wants to appeal for PR reasons."

Kock said prosecutors informed him Monday that they had new evidence in the case that included online chatroom conversations between Deepak Kalpoe and van der Sloot.

But Ruud Offringa, the lawyer for the older brother, told reporters the chatroom conversations were not new evidence and had previously presented to a judge.

The judge was also hearing a fourth appeal from prosecutors seeking to overturn an order allowing van der Sloot's father, Paul, to visit his son while he's in custody.

Attorney General Caren Janssen has said that Paul van der Sloot, a judge in training on the island, had given his son and two friends legal advice, allegedly telling them, "When there is no body you don't have a case."

The father was arrested June 23 and released four days later after a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to hold him.

Holloway vanished in the early hours of May 30, just before she was to catch a flight home from a five-day vacation celebrating her high school graduation with 124 classmates.

Extensive searches of the island and surrounding waters by authorities and volunteers have turned up no trace of the young woman. Members of a volunteer search team from Florida State University's underwater crime scene investigation department left the island Tuesday.

xx DNA Tests Slated for Hair Found in Aruba
« Reply #47 on: Jul 18th, 2005, 07:26am »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba Four strands of blonde hair are being flown to Holland for DNA testing (search), Aruban police have confirmed to FOX News. The discovery could be a much-need break in the search for missing Alabama high school student Natalee Holloway (search).

The foot-long locks were attached to a piece of duct tape in a remote part of the island territory known Boca Tortuga (search). Police received an anonymous tip that led them to search the area. Sources on the scene said that the hair washed ashore and was found in a cave. Divers were reportedly dispatched the area to retrieve any other possible evidence.

The strands will be flown to Holland to see if they are a genetic match for the missing teen. Results could be available as early as Tuesday.

The possible break comes a day after Dutch authorities took a teenager held in connection with the disappearance to retrace his steps at the beach where he says he last saw Holloway the morning she vanished. Police took Joran van der Sloot (search), 17, to a beach near the Marriott Hotel where he has admitted to being alone with the 18-year-old in the early hours of May 30, said police superintendent Jan van der Straaten.

Van der Straaten declined to provide further details, saying only that it was "part of the investigation." Police have taken van der Sloot to the site before.

Van der Sloot's mother, Anita, has said her son told her he was alone with Holloway on the beach but did not harm her.
The beach is near the Holiday Inn where Holloway had been staying during a graduation trip with 124 classmates. She vanished hours before she was to catch her flight home.

Van der Sloot, the son of a judge in training in Aruba, faces no charges, and authorities can hold him until Sept. 4, when he must be charged or released. Six other men detained at various times during the investigation have been released.

xx Local Firm Hired by Holloway Family
« Reply #49 on: Jul 20th, 2005, 06:21am »

Reported By: Jennifer Leslie
Web Editor: Manav Tanneeru


The parents of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teenager missing in Aruba, have hired an Alpharetta firm to begin a private investigation.

The teen, who was in Aruba to celebrate her high school graduation, was last seen in Aruba six weeks ago.

I was watching this case just completely start falling apart, and I felt bad for the family, said T.J. Ward, a private investigator with the firm Investigative Consultants International.

Ward traveled to Aruba at his own expense earlier this month to meet with the Holloway family, and they then hired him to return this week to begin a private investigation.

"There's somebody out there who knows about this investigation, who knows about the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, and we're going to try to establish that on behalf of the family, Ward said.

One of the tools he plans to use is layered voice analysis, which is essentially truth-telling technology that can be used to test live or recorded voices.

"With layered voice analysis, all we have to do is have a casual conversation with you, and we can tell whether you're telling the truth or you're hiding something, Ward said.

Ward provided showed 11Alive News an example of how the technology works using a taped interview with Scott Peterson before he was charged and later convicted with his pregnant wife's murder.

Layered voice analysis shows stress, high tension and inaccuracies throughout.

"This is a probability of what he's saying is false, Ward said. "This is a good way to build your investigative case against somebody."

Ward says he has already evaluated interviews with some of the suspects in the Holloway case, and turned over his findings to the family.

Although he'll work for them, he plans to cooperate with local authorities.

"I assure you that if we find evidence that leans toward any defendants or new defendants, we'll turn that over to the FBI or Aruban authorities immediately, he said.

Like a polygraph test, layered voice analysis is not admissable in court, but Ward says it is becoming more popular as an investigative tool for local and federal law enforcement agencies, such as the Secret Service.

During his recent trip to Aruba, he showed the technology to prosecutors and police, but they told him they couldn't use it since Aruban courts do not allow the technology either.

Ward will travel to Aruba Wednesday to begin his work for the family.

Texas volunteers to return to Aruba to look for missing teen
By The Associated Press


Authorities this week took DNA samples from a jailed Dutch youth and two of his friends as officials concentrate on physical evidence in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

The 18-year-old has been missing since late May during a high school graduation trip.

Also, DNA tests will be done on blond hair attached to duct tape that was found along Aruba's northeastern coast.

Members of Dickinson-based Texas Equusearch pulled out of the island over the weekend after their efforts turned up no sign of Holloway.

Now organizers say they'll dispatch three people to the Caribbean island on July 28th with ground-penetrating radar.

xx New Developments in the Natalee Holloway case
« Reply #51 on: Jul 22nd, 2005, 11:04pm »

Several new developments to report in the case of a missing Alabama teen in Aruba including vivid images of 18 year old Natalee Holloway with her classmates in Mountain Brook. Natalee's family releases video tape taken before she disappeared on May 30th. Her family released their home movies hoping they would help keep her memory alive while Aruban authorities try to find her or find out what happened to her.

Also new the Alabama legislature is taking an active role in the case. The Alabama house passed a resolution by representative Lesley Vance of Phenix City. It calls for Alabamians to boycott Aruba until the case is resolved. Vance says, " 70 percent of these tourists are from the U.S. and, if they want our people to continue to support them, then we ask them to support us back in the U.S especially in Birmingham, Alabama where this young lady's from to help us recover her body or whatever to recover her." Another house member, Rep. Jim Carnes of Birmingham introduced a resolution urging the U.S. Congress to start it's own investigation into Natalee's disappearance.

xx Aruba Leader: FBI Should Get Holloway Records
« Reply #52 on: Jul 23rd, 2005, 11:34pm »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- Aruba's prime minister has urged investigators to give the FBI all documents related to Natalee Holloway's disappearance
Prime Minister Nelson Oduber asked in a letter to Attorney General Karin Janssen that the bureau be allowed complete access to transcripts, audio tapes and all other materials.

FBI agents have been advising Aruban authorities in the 6-week-old investigation. But Aruba's government spokesman, Ruben Trapenberg, said the agents haven't had access to case records.

FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said the agency has pressed for access to the documents.

Trapenberg said the attorney general hasn't yet responded to the government's request. The attorney general wasn't available for comment Friday.

Holloway, 18, vanished May 30 while on a graduation trip to the island.

Joran van der Sloot, 17, remains in custody in connection with the case.

xx Alabama Lawmakers Ask Residents To Avoid Aruba
« Reply #53 on: Jul 25th, 2005, 05:28am »

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The Alabama House of Representatives passed a resolution asking state residents to boycott travel to Aruba, where an Alabama teenager has been missing for more than seven weeks.
The resolution expresses concern that no one has been charged in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway. She vanished May 30 during a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Since Holloway's disappearance authorities in Aruba have detained seven people in connection with the case. But only 17-year-old Joran van der Sloot remains in custody. Holloway was last seen in public leaving a nightclub with van der Sloot.

The resolution's sponsor said he hopes the threat of losing tourist dollars will encourage officials in Aruba to speed up the investigation.

The resolution is not a law and its sponsor said it is just a recommendation asking Alabama tourists to avoid Aruba until the Holloway case is resolved.

xx Aruba sends FBI transcripts in missing teen probe
« Reply #54 on: Jul 25th, 2005, 12:43pm »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Authorities in Aruba have sent transcripts from the investigation into missing American teenager Natalee Holloway to the FBI, which is acting in an advisory role in the high-profile case.

The transcripts include the interrogation of a 17-year-old Dutch youth detained in Holloway's disappearance, FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said Monday.

Aruban authorities agreed to provide the transcripts after the country's prime minister sent a letter to Attorney General Karin Janssen urging prosecutors to give the FBI "complete access" to materials from the investigation to the extent allowed under Dutch law, which governs the territory.

The FBI also has collected a sample of hair found on duct tape along the shore of the island for a DNA analysis. The agency has advised Aruban authorities in the investigation into the disappearance of Holloway but previously have not had access to documents.

Prime Minister Nelson Oduber's request came a week after he met with the FBI's special agent in charge in Miami, Michael Clemens, in the Dutch Caribbean territory, said government spokesman Ruben Trapenberg.

The FBI's access would under "no circumstances" include interviewing suspects, Trapenberg said.

Joran van der Sloot, the son of a judge in training on the island, is the only person who remains in custody in the case.

He and two Surinamese brothers, who were detained and later released, were the last people seen in public with Holloway before she vanished in the early hours of May 30 on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the island.

xx $1 million reward for safe return
« Reply #55 on: Jul 26th, 2005, 07:23am »

HANNAH WOLFSON

Natalee Holloway's family offered a $1 million reward Monday for the safe return of the missing Mountain Brook teen.

Private donors provided the money, said Holloway's mother, Beth Twitty. The reward also promises $100,000 for her whereabouts in any condition.

"It's incredible," said Twitty, who has been frustrated by the lack of information since her daughter disappeared May 30 on a graduation trip to Aruba. "I think that I'll find something out now. Surely that will bring something out."

Seven people have been arrested in the case, but only 17-year-old Joran van der Sloot, remains in detention. He has not been charged.

An Aruban investigative team started working Monday with experts at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., according to the Aruban prosecutor's office. A prosecutor, a police investigator and a legal expert will spend the week going over evidence with American experts, including specialists in criminal behavior.

Prosecutor's spokeswoman Mariaine Croes said planning for the trip began before Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber asked Attorney General Karin Janssen to give the FBI access to materials from the investigation.

Transcripts of interrogations with van der Sloot and others also were being sent from Aruba to the FBI, said bureau spokeswoman Judy Orihuela. Samples of hair and duct tape found last week on the northwest coast of the island were also being examined by the agency's experts in Quantico.

"We've been asking for the transcripts a few times so it's great that we're finally getting them," Orihuela said, adding that FBI agents were allowed to sit in on some interviews. "That will really help us analyze the interviews and review them and maybe based on our review we can offer recommendations."

But a defense attorney filed a motion Monday protesting the decision to give records to the FBI. David Kock, who represents Satish Kalpoe, the youngest of two Surinamese brothers arrested and released in the case, is trying to stop the release of the materials.

"We would not ask the FBI for the Jon Benet Ramsey case," Kock said. "I think the simple fact that the missing person is an American doesn't give the FBI authority to do an investigation."

Holloway Family: New Witnesses in Aruba


ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Natalee Holloway's stepfather said Tuesday that two new witnesses have come forward with information about the night nearly two months ago that the Alabama teenager disappeared on this Dutch Caribbean island.


One witness told investigators that he saw Joran van der Sloot, a 17-year-old Dutch youth who has been detained as the main suspect, driving to a nightclub across the road from the Marriott Hotel around 2:30 a.m. on May 30, when Holloway disappeared, said George Twitty.

According to Twitty, the witness said van der Sloot tried to hide his face with his hands as he drove to the Racquet Club with two Surinamese brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe. The brothers were detained as suspects and later released.

The stepfather said the account is significant because it places the three individuals near the hotel beach where van der Sloot says he left Holloway alone the last night she was seen in public.

"What's interesting is the time 2:30 a.m. when the three were supposedly on their way home," Twitty said, referring to their previous accounts to investigators.

The witness, a gardener whose name was not disclosed, gave his account to investigators Friday, Twitty said.

The Kalpoe brothers first told police that they and van der Sloot dropped Holloway off at her hotel around 2 a.m. on May 30. Later, they said they had lied to protect their friend and that they had dropped him and Holloway at a beach near the hotel.

A second new witness told a private investigator hired by Holloway's family that she saw van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers drive into the Racquet Club three times that same night. The woman, who lives near the nightclub, has not yet spoken with investigators, he said.

Aruban authorities did not comment on the stepfather's statements.

Van der Sloot's lawyer said he had not received any information about it from authorities, and the attorneys for the Kalpoes were not immediately available for comment.

The family on Monday increased the reward for information leading to the young woman's safe return to $1 million, from $200,000.

No one has been charged in the case, and van der Sloot is the only suspect still detained.

Holloway, 18, vanished after an evening of eating, drinking and dancing at a nightclub that she left with the three, hours before she was to catch a flight home to Mountain Brook, Ala., at the end of a graduation trip with 124 classmates.

xx Draining of Aruba pond begins
« Reply #57 on: Jul 27th, 2005, 06:42am »

PALM BEACH, Aruba (CNN) -- Investigators in Aruba searching for missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway began draining a pond Tuesday night.

The pond is near the beach where two brothers told police they dropped off Holloway and a judge's son early May 30, the day she disappeared.

Searchlights guided firefighters as they began pumping at least 3,600 gallons of water a minute, a rate that would drain about 2 inches an hour, a spokesman at the scene said.

The task began at 9 p.m. and was expected to take about 15 hours, the spokesman said.

Two law enforcement sources close to the investigation told CNN a local gardener gave them information about the pond that made them want to search it for the teen's body.

The sources would not say what the gardener's connection is to the pond or what that information he has.

Deepak Kalpoe, 21, and his brother, Satish, 18, are still considered suspects in Holloway's disappearance, despite being released from jail.

They told police that after leaving a nightclub they drove Holloway, 18, and Joran van der Sloot, 17, to the beach north of the Marriott Hotel and left them there.

All three were taken into custody June 9, but the two brothers were released July 4.

Van der Sloot, the son of an Aruban judge who at one point also was briefly detained, remains in jail. No one has been charged in connection with the girl's disappearance.

Holloway, 18, was on a post-graduation class trip to Aruba with classmates from the Birmingham, Alabama, suburb of Mountain Brook when she disappeared.

According to a sworn statement to authorities over the weekend, the gardener claimed to have seen a car belonging to the Kalpoe brothers parked near an adjacent racket club about 2:30 that morning, the sources said.

In his statement, the gardener said he recognized the Kalpoe brothers and Van der Sloot sitting in the darkened car.

The pond and racket club are about a quarter-mile from the hotel.

Van der Sloot's mother has said her son told her he was on the beach with Holloway but left without her because she wanted to stay.

xx Holloway Search Continues
« Reply #58 on: Jul 28th, 2005, 08:48am »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- The search of a pond in Aruba for evidence in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway will continue another day; it's taking longer than expected to drain.

Searchers hope by early Thursday to have a clearer view of the bottom.

Authorities aren't saying exactly what they're looking for, but confirm it's related to the Alabama teenager who went missing May 30 while on a high school graduation trip.

A lawyer for Holloway's family said the search was prompted by a witness who had reported last week that on the night of the disappearance he'd seen three young men near the pond -- including one teenager who is currently detained in the case.

xx Texas Volunteers Search Aruba Landfill For Hollowa
« Reply #59 on: Jul 30th, 2005, 12:29pm »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- Police and a volunteer group from Texas searched a landfill Friday in hopes of finding clues about what happened to missing U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway.

Along with speciallly trained search dogs, the crews used a bulldozer and infrared equipment at the landfill, according to a volunteer with Texas EquuSearch.

Also Friday, a court in Aruba has ruled that DNA samples collected from a Dutch teenager being detained in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway can't be used in a case against him.

The judge also said that samples taken from one of Joran van der Sloot's friends also cannot be used.

The use of van der Sloot's samples has been blocked because prosecutors failed to clarify what his DNA samples would be compared with.

In the case of van der Sloot's friend, the court said there isn't enough evidence to warrant using the tests.

The court said the prosecution could request new DNA samples from van der Sloot if it has documents clarifying what would be used in the comparison.

No one has been charged in the case of the missing Alabama teenager, and no trace of her has been found.
