xx New Arrestee in Holloway Case First Questioned By
« Reply #90 on: Apr 20th, 2006, 10:51am »

April 20, 2006— The 19-year-old man arrested last weekend as a new potential suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway was first questioned by police in the earliest stages of the investigation almost a year ago, ABC News has learned.

Geoffrey van Cromvoirt was arrested following "chatter" generated after the Dutch equivalent of "America's Most Wanted" aired a reenactment of Holloway's disappearance, sources told ABC News. Van Cromvoirt's sister, who is a police officer, played an on-camera roll on the program, ABC News has learned.

In the Dutch reenactment, a mysterious white car follows the one Holloway is in with Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch teen long suspected in the case, the night of her disappearance. On Wednesday, a similar car was spotted parked in front of van Cromvoirt's gated home.


Investigators Return to Waters off Aruba

While van Cromvoirt faces hours of more police interrogation, Dutch and Aruban Coast Guard ships have returned to search the waters off Aruba with sonar devices.

Van Cromvoirt is being held as a possible suspect, not a witness, although van der Sloot remains the chief suspect. Van der Sloot has repeatedly denied being involved in Holloway's disappearance. Police won't say whether the two men knew each other, but van der Sloot's lawyer has said his client does not know van Cromvoirt.

Holloway has been missing since she disappeared on May 30, 2005, while on a class trip to Aruba. Van Cromvoirt worked for a private security company that patrols beaches outside Aruba's hotels. Holloway was last seen leaving an Aruba bar with van der Sloot and Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, who were held for 25 days before being released. Van der Sloot has said he left Holloway on a beach near her hotel after they had kissed.

Van Cromvoirt's family runs the security company, according to Joseph Tacopina, the attorney for van der Sloot. The company provides security for the Aruban government and private companies, including the Holiday Inn, where Holloway had been staying, he said. The company installed the security camera and patrols the beach. Van Cromvoirt was part of the team that patrolled the Holiday Inn's beach in the early hours of the morning, according to Tacopina.

xx Mother of missing Alabama teen to speak in LaPorte
« Reply #91 on: Apr 26th, 2006, 08:53am »

STAN MADDUX
Tribune Correspondent



LAPORTE -- The mother of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who disappeared on a high school graduation trip in Aruba last summer, is coming to LaPorte.

Beth Holloway Twitty is scheduled to speak May 9 at LaPorte High School.

According to the LaPorte County Sheriff's Office, she will give a presentation on her "Safe Travels" program, which emphasizes the importance of personal safety when traveling.
The program will start at 7 p.m.

Her upcoming visit sprung from a National Sheriff's Association conference in January where she and LaPorte County Sheriff Jim Arnold along with his wife, Loren, happened to meet.

"We felt so terrible about the matter involving her daughter we kind of became friends and she asked me to stay in touch with her," Arnold said.

Holloway disappeared May 30, 2005, on the tropical Caribbean island and has not yet been located.

Her mother has vowed to never give up searching for her daughter and bring justice to those responsible.

She continues to wear a "Hope For Natalee" bracelet.

Twitty has estabished a non-profit group called International Safe Travels in hopes of preventing other children from becoming victims and she recently spoke to students in Akron, Ohio.

Arnold said the program directed toward parents and teenagers is free and open to the public.

"She gives a strong message to teens about protecting themselves from predators while on vacation or in a foreign environment," Arnold said.

Twitty also will hold a news conference at the Michigan City Holiday Inn at 3 p.m. on May 9 to address both her program and her daughter's case, Arnold said.

She will speak at LaPorte High School at 8 a.m. and Michigan City High School at 10:10 a.m

xx Report: Suspect Arrested in Holloway Case
« Reply #92 on: May 21st, 2006, 2:30pm »

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Dutch police have arrested a new suspect in last year's disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, the Netherlands' national broadcaster reported Sunday.

NOS said police in Utrecht had arrested the suspect, but it was unclear where and when. The new suspect was said to be of Aruban nationality and an acquaintance of Joran van der Sloot, another suspect in the case.

Holloway, of Mountain Brook, Ala., was 18 when she disappeared in May 2005 during a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island with classmates. She was last seen leaving a bar with three young men on May 30.

Utrecht police spokeswoman Danielle Friedman said she could not confirm any arrests in the case.

"If there was an arrest, it was on the orders of the Aruban prosecutors and all information will be transmitted through them," she said.

Authorities have arrested eight people — including two last month — in connection with Holloway's disappearance but released them all for lack of evidence.

Van der Sloot is the last person known to have seen Holloway alive. He says he left her alone on a beach after the pair kissed.

Holloway's parents are attempting to sue Van der Sloot, 18, in a New York court. Their suit alleges he imprisoned and sexually assaulted Holloway and caused her disappearance.

Dutch marines, the Aruban Coast Guard, the FBI and hundreds of volunteers have searched the island and coastal areas of Aruba for Holloway.

xx Suspect in Holloway case released
« Reply #93 on: May 24th, 2006, 07:02am »

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - The latest lead in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway evaporated Tuesday when Dutch police released a man identified by witnesses as having long, deep scratches on his face shortly after the Alabama teen vanished in Aruba nearly a year ago.

The suspect's lawyer said it was not hard to prove the story was nonsense.

The man, identified only as "Guido W.," 19, was freed unconditionally with the consent of Aruba prosecutors after six "long, hard days" of questioning, attorney Gerard Spong said.

He was the ninth person arrested and jailed in the case. All have been freed for lack of evidence.

However, Guido W. remains a suspect and agreed to be available for questioning when summoned by police, Spong told Associated Press.

The suspect was a croupier at the casino in the Holiday Inn where the 18-year-old Holloway was staying when she disappeared May 30 during a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

The Mountain Brook, Ala., woman was last seen leaving a bar with three young men on the last night of her trip.

The release of Guido W. apparently leaves Aruban authorities no closer to cracking a case that has generated worldwide media attention and tarnished the island's reputation.

Islanders fear that Aruba, which gets 70 percent of its gross domestic product from tourism, will be permanently scarred by the mystery.

« Reply #94 on: May 30th, 2006, 05:14am »

May 30, 2006 — A year ago today, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway mysteriously vanished on the last night of her five-day vacation with friends in Aruba. Over the past 12 months, some cable news channels have seemingly devoted more time to the disappearance of the beautiful blonde, straight-A student from Alabama than they have to the war in Iraq.

Natalee Holloway is not alone. Since May 30, 2005, thousands of other children and teenagers have also gone missing and have not had talk shows focusing on them night after night, fighter jets searching for them, or calls for a national boycott to pressure police into finding them. Yet, despite the extraordinary efforts and international attention, Holloway's parents fear investigators are no closer to cracking the case than they were a year ago

"I don't think of it as a specific date to honor Natalee, because I truly feel that I honor her every day," Beth Twitty, Holloway's mother, told ABC News. "We don't have answers and we are still in the middle of an active investigation. &.We have raised expectations every time we hear of a new arrest and we think that, 'Oh maybe this is it, maybe this won't be a dead end."


The Prime Suspect

From the beginning, police have focused in on the last person to see Holloway alive, Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch teenager who admits he kissed her on the beach that night. Van der Sloot was arrested and detained for months, but police never officially charged him with Holloway's murder.

Joe Tacopina, van der Sloot's attorney, said police wasted valuable time by focusing in almost exclusivelyon his client.

"He's an 18-year-old boy whose life has been turned upside down by this," Tacopina told ABC News' Law & Justice Unit. "People have called him all sorts of names like predator, rapist. But there is absolutely no evidence that he had anything to do with it. In fact, there's exculpatory evidence that he had nothing to do with it — like computer records and phone records that support his timeline."

xx Grim Anniversary For Holloway Family
« Reply #96 on: Jun 1st, 2006, 04:48am »

(CBS) Natalee Holloway's future couldn't have looked brighter: she was a good student, with a full scholarship to college, on a trip to Aruba to celebrate high school graduation with friends, a trip that turned her family's lives upside down.

The Alabama teen vanished without a trace on the island one year ago Tuesday and, as CBS News correspondent Kelly Cobiella reports, there are still few answers in the case.

There was no trace of her, but there were plenty of rumors: rumors that Natalee might have run away. And rumors that two hotel security guards knew what happened to her.

Then came the first in a dizzying series of arrests that would include the men who were with Natalee the night she disappeared: Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, and Joran van der Sloot. And Joran's father Paul, an official in the justice ministry.

In all, 10 people have been arrested and released in the past year.

Despite searching homes, picking through landfills, draining lakes and even re-enacting the night she vanished in the hopes of getting more witnesses to come forward, no one can say for certain whether Holloway is alive or dead.

For Beth Twitty, the anniversary of her daughter's disappearance means little.

"There is no reaction to the year-end mark. I'm not going to mark it any way. Every day is marked with pain and no answers," she says.

Investigators insist the Holloway case is neither closed nor cold, but with so little known one year later, many wonder whether it will ever be solved.

xx New Developments Surface In Natalee Holloway Case
« Reply #97 on: Jun 28th, 2006, 10:38am »

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Over the weekend, new information surfaced in the Natalee Holloway case: a new witness is being held in Aruba.

The witness has been in jail since April, and he said he saw Joran Van Der Sloot, one of the original suspects, the night Holloway disappeared. He also said he saw what he thinks was Holloway and Van Der Sloot on the beach the night in question.

Beth Twitty, Holloway’s mother, said she’s not sure what to make of the latest information, but she is hopeful something will come from this latest turn of events.

“I don’t know if she’s even recoverable at this point or not, but what we do keep thinking is that we’ll at least find out what happened that night. There has to have been somebody that has some information, that knows what transpired that night,” said Twitty.

Ten people have been arrested and questioned in Holloway’s disappearance.

xx Natalee's Mom Crushed By Legal Setback
« Reply #98 on: Aug 7th, 2006, 07:43am »

(AP) MONTGOMERY, Ala. The mother of a Mountain Brook, Ala., teen who disappeared more than a year ago in Aruba said she was "crushed" by the dismissal of the lawsuit filed in New York against the Dutch teen last seen with her daughter.

"That was our only and last shot for justice," said Beth Twitty, mother of Natalee Holloway.

Twitty said she knew the case filed in New York State Supreme Court against Joran van der Sloot was a long shot, but the family took a chance.

"Until you hear that door closed you hang onto hope," Twitty said.

The case claimed van der Sloot, who was 18 at the time, was responsible for Holloway's disappearance and sought unspecified damages. Van der Sloot, who has maintained his innocence, was last seen leaving a bar with Holloway, then 18, before she vanished May 30, 2005. He and two friends were arrested a later on suspicion of involvement in her disappearance, but were released.

Twitty said she will be speaking with the attorney that filed the lawsuit, but said this case was seen as the best legal option.

Van der Sloot's lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, told The Associated Press that the college student "was elated" by the judge's decision.

"We were never afraid of the facts in this case," Tacopina said Thursday when the case was dismissed. "He did nothing to this girl. ... He's trying to get on with his life."

The lawsuit was dismissed by Judge Barbara Kapnick, who said it shouldn't have been filed in Manhattan. She rejected an argument that if the case were filed in Aruba, it would prompt a media frenzy that could interfere with the investigation.

Kapnick said taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for a case "when their interest in the suit... is so ephemeral."

xx Natalee Holloway's parents sue former suspects in
« Reply #99 on: Dec 18th, 2006, 12:22pm »

By DAISY NGUYEN

LOS ANGELES - The parents of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who disappeared last year while on a trip to Aruba with classmates, filed a wrongful death suit Thursday against two brothers who were once suspects in the case.

The civil suit filed on behalf of Beth Twitty and Dave Holloway claims that Deepak and Satish Kalpoe "intentionally, negligently, wantonly" caused fatal injuries to their daughter, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The couple is seeking a jury trial and unspecified damages.

"There is no doubt in my mind that Deepak and Satish played a role in my daughter's death and should be held accountable," Twitty said in a statement. "It's unconscionable that they have not been punished so far."

An after hours call to the Kalpoe brothers' attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.

The wrongful death lawsuit was filed in connection with a case the Kalpoes, both residents of Aruba, filed Wednesday against television's "Dr. Phil" show alleging libel and slander.

The brothers alleged that a private investigator secretly recorded a conversation with Deepak Kalpoe and aired it on the nationally syndicated show. The show altered portions of the recording to "create false, incriminating, and defamatory statements that the plaintiffs engaged in criminal activity against Natalee Holloway," the lawsuit said.

The defendants named in the defamation lawsuit include talk show host Phillip McGraw, investigator Jamie Skeeters and CBS Television Distribution Group. Chip Babcock, an attorney representing all three defendants, denied the conversation was secretly recorded.

"We stand by the integrity of the 'Dr. Phil' show, our editing process and the accuracy of the program that we aired," the defendants said in a statement released by Babcock.

Holloway was 18 when she disappeared on May 30, 2005 while on a trip to Aruba with fellow graduates of Mountain Brook High School. She was last seen getting into a car with the Kalpoes and their friend, Joran van der Sloot.

Police spent months searching for the missing teen, but the case did not lead to any criminal trial in Aruba.

A similar lawsuit filed by Holloway's family in a New York court against van der Sloot was thrown out by a judge this summer.

"Some kind of answer as to where Natalee was put."

That's what Ann Reynolds is hoping for; answers as to what happened to her granddaughter Natalee Holloway. (See links below the picture for more stories on Holloway.)

Reynolds explains, “After two years, you expect for them not to find something and then all of a sudden that we have hope that they might have found something."

Dutch police are reviving a case in the search of the teen who vanished during a school trip to the Dutch Caribbean Island. Around 20 Dutch investigators dug up earth outside the home of the police's prime suspect Joran Van Der Sloot.

Reynolds says Natalee's mother, Beth Twitty, while pleased with the latest developments in the case, admits it's not easy watching it all unfold on TV.

She continues, “She said, ‘Mom this has been harder on me than anything that I know of. I kind of had gotten to the point where maybe they might not, but I always had hope.’"

Hope that the mystery of what happened to their loved one finally solved after two years, even though they know they may not find her alive.

Reynolds says, “I don't think that's going to happen. But if we can find anything of hers that she had on that day."

But inside the Reynolds home, you won't have a hard time finding a piece of Natalee with her pictures everywhere.

Her disappearance has admittedly affected each one of them, but they rely on one another to help pull them through in hopes that this two-year nightmare can finally be put to rest.

xx Holloway Case: New Kalpoe Documents
« Reply #101 on: Sep 14th, 2007, 8:31pm »

This is a rush transcript from "On the Record ," September 13, 2007. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Tonight, a possible breakthrough in the Natalee Holloway case. A California judge has ordered the Kalpoe brothers to turn over documents and e-mails that the judge says are relevant to the most fundamental issues in this case.

John Q. Kelly is an attorney for Natalee Holloway's parents. He joins us in New York.

John, you were part of this lawsuit originally, but your client got bounced out of it. Btu tell me, what is the order that this judge has issued and why is it significant?

JOHN Q. KELLY, ATTORNEY FOR HOLLOWAY FAMILY: Well, the key issue is whether the Kalpoe's have to turn over all the documents in their possession including all their e-mail correspondence between them and Joran Van der Sloot or any other third parties during the uncertain period of time after Natalee's disappearance. And we're hoping that it would shed some light on Natalee's disappearance and the Kalpoe's involvement with it and think of it (ph) if they're kind enough to turn it all over
VAN SUSTEREN: You say shed some light. Is it fair to say this might be a bombshell in the case?

KELLY: Well, depending on what is in the records they have right now. I know for a fact that the former prosecutor Karen Yanson (ph) had diligently turned over all the prosecution filed up to a certain point to the Kalpoes and Mr. Van der Sloot as the investigation was going on. And I think having now seen the light of day and Dr. Phil's attorneys having these two questioned, the Kalpoes, taking their deposition, it could be rather powerful, to say the least.

VAN SUSTEREN: These e-mails and documents have never been in the possession of you or your client Dave and Beth, is that right?

KELLY: Some of them may have been, Greta. I have seen some of the prosecution filings, I've seen a lot of the police reports and things, but obviously there's a lot out there we have not seen yet and we would like to be privy to. And I would certainly like to see Dr. Phil's attorneys be privy to them.

VAN SUSTEREN: John, there is some question whether the documents will be produced. The Kalpoe brothers will say, we don't have them, they are in the possession of the prosecutor in Aruba. Is that true? Is that the way it's going to be fought at this point?

KELLY: I believe David Koch (ph), one of the attorneys for the Kalpoes actually signed a declaration at the court indicating that even if the court ordered the documents be turned over, they were not going to turn them over, which was sort of, for lack of a better word, arrogant on his part. The court did not necessarily like that.

But I can't see them both using the courts as a sword and then a shield. They can't bring this action, they can't seek damages and not obey the quarters of the ort - the orders of the court and expect their case to go forward.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. So now back this up a little bit. Explain what this lawsuit is about and how your client was once in it and is now out of it?

KELLY: The Kalpoe brothers claim - Deepak claims that when he was interviewed by Jamie Skeeters (ph), who subsequently passed away, he said on the tape that he was not involved in Natalee's disappearance and in no way did he engage in any sexual activity with her before disappearance. Deepak claims subsequently either Dr. Phil's production company or Jamie Skeeters altered the tape to reflect that Deepak had been involved in Natalee's disappearance and engaged in sexual activity with her prior to her disappearance. And therefore they have brought a lawsuit claiming libel, defamation, invasion of privacy and a lot of other claims based on the alleged alteration of the tape, a ledger alteration.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. So that was filed in the State of California by these Aruban residents - I don't know what their status is in Aruba. They live there, I don't know what their legal status is.

They filed in the State of California and then you and your clients seized upon the moment to try to get into the litigation so you would get them under oath. Is that right?

KELLY: We did. Our premise was that they were claiming that the basis of their claim was that it was false, by saying that they were involved in Natalee's disappearance. Our claim was the wrongful death action, the assault and wrongful death action that we brought against Deepak and Satish was based on the same set of salient operative fact, that whether they were involved or not in Natalee's disappearance is something that should be litigated by the courts out in California once they have submitted themselves to the jurisdiction.

VAN SUSTEREN: And then of course the court said that your client could not bring the action so you guys got bounced out in June.

KELLY: We did. Unfortunately. We would have liked to stay in there, but that was the ruling.

VAN SUSTEREN: But you'd like to stay in there but even though you got bounced out, it is s till a huge victory for you because I suspect, I don't know, that you are working with the lawyers of Dr. Phil's because that would enable you to get more information about the investigation, right? Or won't you answer?

KELLY: I'll answer, of course. I've had a number of conversations with the attorneys of Dr. Phil and I like to keep them posted and they like to keep me posted. And that's an open line there, for sure.

VAN SUSTEREN: So getting really bounced out was not really a loss at all and your foot is still in the door, so to speak.

KELLY: It was a hail Mary and we also would like to know we want the Kalpoe brothers to know we're watching their every move and if there is ever even a crack in the door we're going to seize the opportunity and go after them.

xx 3 re-arrested in Aruba disappearance of U.S. teen
« Reply #102 on: Nov 21st, 2007, 4:18pm »

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Three young men previously detained as suspects in the 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway have been re-arrested in the case, the Aruban public prosecutor's office said Wednesday.

Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005, hours before she was scheduled to fly home to Alabama after a high school graduation trip to this Dutch Caribbean resort island.

The 18-year-old was last seen in public leaving a bar with the three young men who now are again suspects in her disappearance.

Dutch teenager Joran van der Sloot and two Surinamese brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, were arrested on suspicion of involvement in manslaughter and causing seriously bodily harm that caused the death of the American teenager, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

"The public prosecutor's office has ordered their renewed arrest because further investigation into the disappearance has led to new incriminating evidence," the prosecutor's office said in the statement.

Van der Sloot was arrested in the Netherlands, where he is attending a university, and is expected to be extradited to Aruba. The Kalpoe brothers were arrested in Aruba.

All three young men previously have denied any role in Holloway's disappearance. The brothers were expected to appear in an Aruban court on Friday, when prosecutors planned to present new evidence to a judge.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba — A hidden-camera interview with a Dutch student saying he believed missing teenager Natalee Holloway was dead and asking a friend to dump her body at sea is admissible in court, the chief Aruban prosecutor said Monday.

The courts in Aruba will likely accept the tape as evidence because it was recorded by a private citizen without any influence by authorities, Chief Prosecutor Hans Mos told reporters.

"I take it very seriously," Mos said of the video.

The tape, which was first broadcast Sunday on Dutch television, has appeared to spur the investigation: Mos said authorities in the Netherlands searched two homes Monday where van der Sloot has lived while attending college there.

The prosecutor declined to provide any details about the searches.

A judge in Aruba denied a prosecution arrest to detain Van der Sloot based on the new information. Mos said they will file an appeal Tuesday and expect a decision within a week.

In the secret recordings broadcast, Van der Sloot said Holloway, 18, was drunk and that she began shaking and slumped down on the beach as they were kissing in May 2005.

"Suddenly she started shaking and then she didn't say anything," Van der Sloot said in Dutch, adding that he did not kill her. "I would never murder a girl."

He said he panicked and tried but failed to revive her. He said that Holloway looked dead but that he could not be sure she was not still alive when a friend took her away.

Mos said prosecutors believe Van der Sloot was telling the truth in the video because he seemed to struggle as he told the story and repeated it several times.

"Now, whether that is the truth, that has to be seen ..." he said. "Finally the court will have to decide whether this is a declaration ... that we can use as evidence in this court of law."

Joseph Tacopina, a lawyer for student Joran Van der Sloot, said his client was not responsible for the Alabama teenager's death and that the tapes do not amount to a confession.

"There was no confession, no admission of a crime by Joran on any of these tapes, which is very telling," Tacopina said on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Last week, Van der Sloot said he was lying in those conversations and denied that he had anything to do with Holloway's disappearance. In the secret footage, Van der Sloot spoke with a man he believed to be his friend, who gave him "drugs, marijuana, things like that," Tacopina told ABC.

But Natalee's mother, Beth Twitty, told ABC: "I don't think any of us are surprised by his reaction (that his comments were fiction), but I know one thing. Once people see the video of Joran there are no more questions. There is no one who can walk away from this believing that he is innocent."

She said Van der Sloot didn't even know if her daughter was alive or not.

"Natalee never even had the chance for a medical doctor or a coroner, anyone, to determine (if she was alive)," Twitty said.

Holloway, of Mountain Brook, Alabama, was last seen leaving a bar with Van der Sloot and two Surinamese brothers hours before she was due to board a flight home.

The three were arrested shortly after her disappearance and again in November, but released for lack of evidence. Prosecutors then dismissed their case against them, saying they lacked evidence even to prove a crime. All three have always denied any role in her disappearance.
