xx Beth Holloway Twitty leaves Aruba
« Reply #60 on: Aug 1st, 2005, 07:27am »

PALM BEACH, Aruba (CNN) -- After spending two months on Aruba following the disappearance of her daughter, the mother of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway has returned home to Birmingham indefinitely.

Beth Holloway Twitty will return to the island if there are any developments in Holloway's case.

Meanwhile, a search of an Aruban pond has ended with no sign of the missing teen, said the lead investigator on the case.

"The search at the pond is over," Roy Trump told CNN. "It's unfortunate, of course, but there was nothing there. We're finished at the pond."

The Aruban police investigator said divers made several attempts to look at certain areas of the pond in the small amount of water remaining but did not find anything of interest.

The pond was searched because of its proximity to a spot where a witness claimed he saw the three men named as suspects in Holloway's disappearance sitting in a car. (Full story)

Brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe and their friend Joran Van der Sloot were the last to be seen with her when she left a popular bar May 30.

Van der Sloot remains in custody. The Kalpoe brothers have been released for insufficient evidence, but they remain suspects in the case.

In addition to the pond, Trump said authorities are searching a landfill for the third time since a witness came forward shortly after Holloway disappeared.

The witness claimed he saw more than one person dump into the landfill something he believes could have been a covered body, CNN has learned from sources briefed on the investigation. The witness also gave police a license tag number that reportedly belonged to a white pickup truck.

Police tell CNN that a tag check found that the vehicle was not at the landfill at or around the time the witness claimed.

About 11 members of Equusearch, a Dickinson, Texas-based volunteer group that specializes in searches, also combed through the landfill Saturday. Spokesman Kevin O'Brien said the search was going "slow, very slow, with lots and lots of digging in pretty unpleasant conditions."

O'Brien said three cadaver dogs hit on specific areas within the landfill early Saturday, but a physical search located three containers of medical waste instead.

"So it's back to square one," O'Brien said.

The FBI had also combed the landfill with a dog but found nothing.

On the legal front
An Aruban appeals court Friday rejected both a prosecution request for Van der Sloot's DNA samples -- and a defense request for Satish Kalpoe's DNA samples.

The attorney for Deepak Kalpoe did not file a motion in time to request his.

The appeals court did rule in favor of the prosecution on allowing Van der Sloot to be transferred from his jail cell to the downtown police station for any further interrogation. His lawyer had fought that motion.

Authorities must notify Van Der Sloot's attorney before he is questioned again, and the attorney must be present for the interrogation.

Holloway, an 18-year-old honors student, was in Aruba with classmates to celebrate their graduation when she disappeared

xx Holloway's mom returning to island

HANNAH WOLFSON
News staff writer


Two months into the search for her daughter in Aruba, Beth Twitty didn't want to take even a few days off to come back to Alabama.

But, after three days at home in Mountain Brook, Twitty said she's returning to Aruba today "ready to fight," and she'll be carrying a special piece of cargo: photos of the yellow ribbons that line the streets of Natalee Holloway's hometown.

"I want to take them with me so I can look at them and I can also show Aruba," Twitty said as she drove around running errands Monday. "I can't think of anything better to take."

Twitty flew home Saturday to spend time with her 16-year-old son, Matt, with other family, and with friends of her daughter. Holloway, 18, disappeared May 30 while on a graduation trip to Aruba.

Her mother said her family's home feels empty without her daughter.

"I don't want to be there," she said. "I'm ready to go get her."

Twitty left her clothes and papers in her room at Aruba's Wyndham Hotel, where she plans to stay another month. One of her tasks during her short trip home was to arrange a leave with the Mountain Brook school system, where she works as a speech pathologist.

She took care of a few everyday tasks, including a dental appointment and taking the family dog, Macy, to the vet for her summer haircut. The pastor who had married her and her husband, George "Jug" Twitty, prayed with them at home.

Twitty also went twice to the prayer wall set up for her daughter at Mountain Brook Community Church. She first stopped at midnight Saturday, soon after arriving in town. She returned Sunday with a group of Holloway's girlfriends, including those who plan to attend the University of Alabama with her this fall. Twitty said the university understands that "everything's on hold right now."

She said the trips to the wall reassured her because she feared the good wishes she has received from around the world were only for her and not her daughter.

"This may sound strange to people, but I feel like I've been getting all these cards and letters and support and I started to worry about Natalee," she said. "I wished she was getting the same and it hit me when I saw the prayer wall that she is. It hit me when I was standing there. I thought, `Oh, she's getting her mail.' It made me feel so relieved."

Twitty said she hopes her daughter is still alive, though she knows it's against the odds. In the weeks since Holloway disappeared, extended searches have turned up few clues. Although authorities there arrested seven men, all but one were released, and no one has been charged. Indeed, authorities say there's no proof Holloway is dead.

"I may be the last one standing," she said. "But I don't know anything different. Until I find out for sure, then I'm just going to go with (the feeling) that there's a very good possibility she's alive."

xx Holloway case produces one false lead after anothe
« Reply #62 on: Aug 4th, 2005, 05:37am »

By PETER PRENGAMAN


Police have drained a pond, picked through landfill, scoured beaches and sent strands of blond hair overseas for genetic testing - often chasing false leads in the investigation into Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway's disappearance.

The mystery baffles and frustrates investigators more than two months after the 18-year-old honors student was last seen leaving a nightclub with three young men.

"We thought we could solve this in a couple of days, but it turned out to be very difficult," said Lt. Roy Tromp, the lead investigator. "In my 30 years as a police officer, I've never had a case like this."

The most recent leads suggested something grisly happened to Holloway, but investigators say they have no proof she is dead.

The strands of hair were found on duct tape that washed up on Aruba's northern shore. DNA testing by the FBI determined the hair didn't come from Holloway.

A volunteer rescue group from Texas searched a landfill for a fifth day Wednesday, pursuing a tip from a witness who claimed to have seen men dumping a female body two days after Holloway disappeared. They've found nothing so far.

Last week, Aruban authorities almost completely drained a pond where a witness said he saw Dutch teenager Joran van der Sloot and two brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe - the three who left the nightclub with Holloway - driving the night she vanished. The pond yielded up nothing.

Van der Sloot, 17, is the only person still detained in the case. The Kalpoe brothers, of Suriname, and four other men, including van der Sloot's father, were detained in June and released for lack of evidence.

The head investigator said he is convinced van der Sloot was involved in Holloway's May 30 disappearance. Tromp said the teenager, who has maintained his innocence, has changed his account of what happened that night more than 10 times.

Three behavior specialists from the Netherlands questioned van der Sloot for a second day Wednesday, hoping to glean clues from his body language or version of events. An FBI observer was also present.

No one has been charged in the case. Searches throughout the Dutch Caribbean island have produced no trace of Holloway.

"We are still fighting. We are still positive we are going to break this thing," said Tromp.

But how long could it take?

"I don't have a crystal ball," he said. "And as the days pass by, it's becoming more difficult."

Many Arubans, who say they take pride in their efficient police force, have become resigned to the possibility that there may never be a resolution.

"If she is alive, she isn't here, and if she's dead, they are not going to find her," said Istela Inesia, 38, who runs a deli.

American lawyers and police experts, in a stream of appearances on U.S. cable television shows, have suggested Aruban authorities have bungled the investigation. Some have suggested there was a cover-up because van der Sloot's father, Paul van der Sloot, is a Dutch judge in training.

Aruban police and citizens bristle at such speculation.

"Not Joran, not Paul, not anybody has had special treatment in this case," Tromp said.

The missing teen's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, has kept the case in the spotlight with frequent media appearances, vowing not to let the investigation go cold.

The 44-year-old speech pathologist left Aruba last weekend for the first time since her daughter vanished, going home to Birmingham, Ala.

But she was returning Wednesday, determined to step up pressure on authorities.

"I'll be here at least another month, unless we find Natalee sooner," Holloway Twitty said.

xx Case of Missing U.S. Teen Produces One False Lead
« Reply #63 on: Aug 5th, 2005, 10:13am »

xx Searchers Continue Combing Landfill
« Reply #64 on: Aug 6th, 2005, 11:13pm »

A judge has ruled that Aruban police can share information with the FBI about Natalee Holloway. The ruling strikes down a motion that sought to prevent the American agency from gaining access to investigation files.

Meanwhile, searchers continued combing a landfill in the area for anything that might shed light on the Clinton native's disappearance. A witness claims he saw three men dump what appeared to be a body shortly after 18-year-old Holloway vanished. One member of the Texas-based group Equusearch says he believes the witness' claim because he has been taking part in search efforts at the landfill every day along with other volunteers.

"You figure if someone is lying about it, why would they continue to come out there and dig and dig and dig? They wouldn't have any reason to. He's right alongside us, breathing the same stuff and digging as hard as he can. He's getting down in the holes and digging through stuff that we don't wanna do," said John Huston of Equusearch.

Jordan van der Sloot, the only one in custody in the disappearance, turned 18 Saturday. Since he's no longer a minor, he'll only be allowed to receive visits by his parents once a week instead of daily.

xx Family of Missing U.S. Teen in Aruba Raises Reward
« Reply #65 on: Aug 9th, 2005, 06:18am »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- The mother of an Alabama honors student missing in this Caribbean island for over two months said Monday the investigation into the teen's disappearance has been marred by ineptitude, and more than doubled the reward for help in solving the case to $250,000.

Natalee Holloway's mother, renewing criticism of authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island, said police had given her copies of statements from witnesses and other documents from the investigation that have led her to believe investigators are on the wrong track.

"The level of ineptness has been incredible," Beth Holloway Twitty said of Aruban authorities. "The whole thing has been wrong from the beginning."

She declined to give details on the documents or say how she thinks authorities should be handling the case.

The family is also offering a $1 million reward for information leading to the 18-year-old's safe return. The other reward was raised from $100,000, and Holloway Twitty wanted to publicize the rewards in neighboring Venezuela and Colombia, even though Aruban authorities and the FBI said they don't believe the teen left the Dutch Caribbean island.

The family has said the reward is a mix of their own money and donations, but they have declined to give a breakdown.

"I hope more money will help bring people forward," she said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I still don't feel like this investigation is heading in the right direction." Chief Prosecutor Karin Janssen called the criticism unwarranted.

"I'm positive about our progress and very proud of my team," said Janssen.

Extensive searches by Dutch marines, Aruban police, and thousands of volunteers have found no trace of Natalee, who vanished on May 30 during a graduation trip with 124 classmates on the island.

No one has been charged in the disappearance. Seven men were arrested, but all except 18-year-old Joran van der Sloot have been released.

Through his lawyers and family, van der Sloot has acknowledged being on a beach alone with the young woman the day she disappeared, but says he left her there unharmed.

« Reply #66 on: Aug 10th, 2005, 10:32am »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba A man who had been detained in the disappearance of Mississippi native Natalee Holloway has complained to authorities that her mother has been harassing him.

Deepak Kalpoe, a 21-year-old Suriname national, asked that Beth Holloway Twitty stay away from him, police Inspector Carlos Sarge said Tuesday.

Sarge said police would ask her to stay away from Kalpoe.

Extensive searches by Dutch marines, Aruban police, and thousands of volunteers have found no trace of the 18-year-old Alabama honors student, who vanished on May 30 during a graduation trip with 124 classmates on this Dutch Caribbean island.

Holloway attended junior high in Clinton, Miss., and her father and stepmother live in Meridian.

Holloway Twitty would not comment on the complaint. "I'm just going to try to continue getting answers about my daughter," she said.

Kalpoe, his 18-year-old brother Satish, and 18-year-old Joran van der Sloot were the last ones seen with Holloway the night the 18-year-old Alabama student disappeared.

The young men were arrested on June 9, but the Kalpoe brothers were later released after a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to hold them. Van der Sloot is the only person in custody in the case and no one has been charged.

Holloway Twitty has repeatedly said she believes the three young men were involved in heer daughter's disappearance allegations that they have denied.

The complaint came after Holloway Twitty confronted Kalpoe Monday and asked him about her daughter's disappearance. The scene was filmed by television.

Kalpoe repeatedly told her he had nothing to say and that she should speak to his lawyer. Calls to Kalpoe's lawyer seeking comment Tuesday were not returned.

« Reply #67 on: Aug 11th, 2005, 09:06am »

Aug 10, 05: ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) - A young man who had been detained in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway filed a harassment complaint against the teen's mother Tuesday after she confronted him at his job in an exchange that was secretly filmed by a U.S. television network.

Deepak Kalpoe, a 21-year-old Suriname national, filed a complaint with police against Beth Holloway Twitty and asked that she stay away from him, said police Inspector Carlos Sarge.

"He wanted us to talk to Beth and tell her to leave him alone," Sarge said. "He's already said what he has to say about the case."

Sarge said police would ask Holloway Twitty to stay away from Kalpoe but that the complaint couldn't prevent her from approaching him.

Aruba's district attorney's office could take some form of legal action against Holloway Twitty if Kalpoe files more complaints, Sarge said, declining to elaborate.

Holloway Twitty declined to comment on Kalpoe's complaint Tuesday, saying she hadn't seen it. "I'm just going to try to continue getting answers about my daughter," she said.

xx Natalee Holloway's Mother Speaks To NBC13
« Reply #68 on: Aug 13th, 2005, 4:23pm »

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Natalee Holloway's mother spoke to NBC13 Friday, as a new search started on the island of Aruba
A group from the United States is using dogs that work best at night.

The group is searching the area near the lighthouse where Natalee may have been the night she disappeared.

Natalee's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, spoke to NBC13 by phone Friday night. She said her daily effort is to keep Natalee's story alive. She said support from the U.S. is what gives her strength.

"The only thing that keeps me sane are the people from the states. They're incredible from all over," said Twitty.

As for the investigation, a private investigator turned up a belt near the lighthouse. It may look like the one Joran van der Sloot was wearing in a picture near the lighthouse.

Twitty said she appreciates every clue but knows specifically what she wants.

"Some information from Joran and Deepak and Satish ... not only that, I'd like to see them questioned again, but re-arrested and interrogated, but with a different approach," Twitty said.

Twitty was thrilled to learn yellow ribbons were being hung at the University of Alabama campus for Natalee.

Natalee was set to start classes on a full scholarship this month.

"I had heard that they had put yellow ribbons on the sorority dorms. I didn't know they'd put them elsewhere. That is incredible," Twitty said.

Twitty is waiting for Sept. 4, when suspect Joran van der Sloot will be in court.

A judge will decide then if there is enough evidence to keep him in jail.

Natalee has been missing since May 30.

Key Aruban suspect says his friend raped, killed and burried Natalee Holloway

Oranjestad, Aruba (Aug. 14,2005)

a local newspaper in Aruba has published a report that the key suspect in the disappearance of natalee Holloway told police that his friend raped, killed and burried the missing American teen.

The newspaper published what it claimed was a signed police interview in which Joran Van Der Sloot told interrogators Depak Kalpoe raped, killed and burried natalee Holloway.

Kalpoe was arrested along with his brother Satish soon after Holloway went missing but was released after a few days in custody.

According to witnesses Holloway, who may have been drugged was last seen with the Kalpoe brothers and Van Der Sloot leaving a nightclub.

Aruba, a popular scuba diving destination, has been shunned by tourists in the wake of the Holloway case.

2 Brothers Once Tied to Natalee Holloway Disappearance Are Back in Custody

Police in Aruba have arrested two Surinamese brothers who had been previously detained and released in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
Satish and Deepak Kalpoe (left and right in photo) were arrested along with a third person, according to government spokesman Ruben Trapenberg.

Trapenberg said he did not know if the arrests were connected to the Holloway case and no other details were immediately available.


Satish Kalpoe, 18, and his 21-year-old brother, Deepak, were released from jail in July after a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to hold them in Holloway's disappearance.

The 18-year-old Holloway, from Mountain Brook, Ala., was last seen on May 30th, the final night of a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

The brothers had been arrested June 9th along with Joran van der Sloot, 18 (center of photo), who authorities have identified as a suspect in the case though no charges have been filed.

A judge is scheduled to hold a hearing in September to determine if there is enough evidence to continue holding van der Sloot.

Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with the Kalpoe brothers and van der Sloot in the early hours of May 30th. Extensive searches of the island have produced no sign of her.

xx Three Are Released in Aruba Case
« Reply #71 on: Sep 3rd, 2005, 2:28pm »

By MICHAEL NORTON, Associated Press Writer

SINT NICOLAAS, Aruba - A Dutch youth and two Surinamese brothers suspected in the disappearance of a U.S. teenager were released from jail Saturday, after a judge ruled they could go free but must remain available to police.
Joran van der Sloot and the brothers, Satish Kalpoe, 18 and Deepak Kalpoe, 21, were released on condition that they remain in Dutch territory and be available to police for questioning.

Van der Sloot's lawyer, Richie Kock, said that the teenager would soon be going to university in Holland.

"Joran will be trusted to be on his own in Holland and to do as he pleases," Kock said. "We do not have a parole system."

Van der Sloot and the brothers were arrested June 9 on suspicion of involvement in Holloway's disappearance. All three have denied any connection to the disappearance.

Despite Saturday's releases, police insist the investigation into Holloway's widely publicized disappearance will continue.

"The investigation continues. The case of Natalee Holloway has not concluded with these releases," Adolfo Richardson, the police officer in charge, told The Associated Press on Friday.

But legal observers in Aruba say the release shows that the government had no case.

"The prosecution doesn't know what criminal act occurred acts which might be murder, kidnapping, rape," said attorney Arlene Skipper, a legal observer of the case. "It is still a missing person case ... The prosecution has a strong suspicion of foul play but no proof of it ... If they had solid proof, they could close the case."

The missing teen's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, said Friday she was devastated by the news of the releases. The Holloway family have insisted that all three young men know what happened to the Alabama honors student, who vanished May 30 on the last day of a vacation to celebrate her high school graduation.

Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers. Van der Sloot's parents have said they stand by their son's account that he was alone with Holloway on the beach the night she vansished but did not harm her.

Extensive searches on the Dutch Caribbean island have produced no sign of Holloway. Her family has often been critical of Aruban authorities' handling of the case, especially their ini

xx Holloway suspect leaves the country
« Reply #72 on: Sep 6th, 2005, 05:25am »

By Michael Norton


ORANJESTAD, Aruba A Dutch suspect in the disappearance of an Alabama teenager left Aruba to attend college Monday, while the country's leader pledged the investigation "will not cease" despite the release of the three suspects.

One of them, Joran van der Sloot, a Dutch youth who has acknowledged spending the evening with Natalee Holloway before her disappearance but denied any wrongdoing, left the island to attend college in Holland.

Van der Sloot is allowed to leave the Caribbean island but must remain in Dutch territory under terms of his release.

Prime Minister Nelson Oduber, who has previously said Aruban authorities made mistakes in the early part of the Holloway investigation, added that he could appreciate the "dismay" of the missing teen's mother.

"But, the case is not concluded. And we will continue to demand that the search for answers into what happened to Natalee will not cease," Oduber said in a statement released Monday.

The remarks from the prime minister, who is running for re-election this month, are the first since the release Saturday of van der Sloot, 18, and two Surinamese brothers.

Van der Sloot's mother, Anita, pleaded for the media to leave him alone.

"He's a good boy. It's enough," she told The Associated Press. She also expressed sympathy for Holloway's family in the telephone interview.

"I pray for Natalee and the Holloway-Twitty family and I'm still convinced she is alive," she said.

Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, left Aruba for her home in Mountain Brook, Ala. on Sunday, saying she had "exhausted all my avenues" after pressuring authorities since shortly after the teen disappeared on the final day of a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot and the two brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe early on May 30. The three young men were released on condition they remain available to police for questioning.

xx Benefit Concert For Natalee Holloway's Mom
« Reply #73 on: Sep 8th, 2005, 6:50pm »

A benefit concert for the family of Natalee Holloway is scheduled for next week at First Presbyterian Church in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

The concert is free, but donations will gladly be accepted, the loot will ostensibly be used to help offset the expenses incurred by Beth Holloway Twitty in her obsessive- compulsive search for her missing daughter.

First Presbyterian Church should change its name to "Enablers R Us Presbyterian Church". Why would a church lavish "God's money" on a woman with an unquenchable thirst for the glare of the TV cameras?

Why not organize a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, is it because most of the victims are African American? I don't think this is the case, but the Holloway benefit concert will certainly leave that impression to many as they witness the Hurricane Katrina drama unfold on TV.

Why hold a benefit concert for Beth Holloway Twitty, does she need a new pair of designer sunglasses or a new bathing suit?

Beth Holloway Twitty's whining and histrionics accomplished nothing: Joran van der Sloot is attending college in Holland and the Kalpoe brothers are enjoying the sun and surf in the island paradise of Aruba. The three innocent young men are enjoying their freedom -- no thanks to Beth Holloway Twitty.

Ms. Twitty should grieve in private, stay away from the spotlight, and refuse to accept any donations from suckers who need to get a life.

xx Suspect in Holloway disappearance denies responsib
« Reply #74 on: Sep 26th, 2005, 3:16pm »

NEW YORK (AP) -- A suspect in the case of an Alabama teenager missing in Aruba admits he lied about the last time he saw her on the night she vanished, but he insists she was fine, according to a television interview.

Joran van der Sloot, 18, was one of three men jailed this summer in Natalee Holloway's May 30 disappearance. He talked to a producer for "A Current Affair" in Holland, where he is attending college.

The interview is scheduled to air Monday. Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot and two brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe. The three young men were released on the condition they remain available to police for questioning.

But earlier this month, an appeals court overturned that, saying there was a "lack of sufficient grounds and serious suspicions" to keep the restrictions. Van der Sloot and the brothers initially told police they dropped Holloway off alone at her hotel but later admitted van der Sloot was dropped off with the teen.

"We agreed to lie," van der Sloot said, according to a transcript of the show. He insists the night ended when he left her alone on the beach. "She wanted to stay here the whole night. I told her no I had to go. I even lifted her up to carry her back to the hotel, and she told me to put her down," he said in the interview.

Extensive searches have failed to find any trace of Holloway, who vanished on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island. Van der Sloot said he had been drinking with Holloway when they left with the Kalpoe brothers.

"Obviously she was drunk. I had stuff to drink, too," van der Sloot said. "She wanted to go with me. I wanted to go with her. It was totally consensual."
