The poker-playing playboy long suspected of killing Natalee Holloway has reportedly admitted to extorting money from her family.The confession was allegedly made to a Dutch newspaper, in which Joran Van der Sloot is quoted stating he did it for revenge."I
wanted to get back at Natalee's family — her parents have been making
my life tough for five years," De Telegraaf quoted him as saying. "When
they offered to pay for the girl's location, I thought: 'Why not'?"Van der Sloot has been in jail in Peru since June for the murder of a young woman in a Lima hotel. He has been interviewed by the Dutch newspaper several times since his arrest there.The extortion was part of a sting operation by the FBI,
which had hoped to collar Van der Sloot for Holloway's still-unsolved
disappearance. With her family, the young Dutchman was paid a total of
$25,000 for information on her location, but the details he shared
ultimately proved false.The FBI was criticized for letting Van
der Sloot get the money, because the funds may have helped him go to
Peru, where he was playing poker and met the young woman who ended up
dead, Stephany Flores.The 21-year-old was found in his hotel room on May 30. Van der Sloot was apprehended several days later in Chile,
and allegedly admitted to killing the young woman. He has since
retracted the confession, but it may still be admissible in his trial.Natalee
Holloway has been missing since 2005, when the 18-year-old high school
student was on a vacation. Van der Sloot had been suspected of killing
her, but was never charged.

The mother of missing American teen Natalee Holloway sneaked into a Peruvian jail and confronted Joran van der Sloot about her daughter's fate.

Van der Sloot is being held in a maximum security prison in Peru on charges that he murdered another young woman, 21-year-old Stephany Flores, in his Lima hotel room in May. But the 22-year-old Dutchman is also the prime suspect in Holloway's disappearance. She vanished in 2005 during a high school graduation trip to the tropical island of Aruba, and her body has never been found.

Holloway's mother, Beth Twitty, is visiting Peru this week with a Dutch documentary filmmaker who's investigating Natalee's disappearance. On Wednesday, the two managed to sneak into Castro Castro Prison, where van der Sloot is being held, and even reached his cell. Twitty spoke with him for about five minutes before authorities removed her.

Their meeting was first reported by Peruvian TV and then picked up by many foreign media. Some Dutch media are also reporting that Twitty was arrested for the security breach.

Her lawyer, John Kelly, confirmed that Twitty had met with van der Sloot, saying it was their first face-to-face meeting since the night after her 18-year-old daughter disappeared.

He said it was done without violating any laws or breaking any regulations.

"This was just a mother acting on her instincts," Kelly told NBC's "Today" show this morning. "I don't think that was her purpose -- of thinking she was going to get answers out of him. I think it was more to deliver the message that he might be in Peru, but she hasn't gone away. She's determined to get answers and, you know, she wants to bring Natalee home."

Kelly said Twitty didn't tell him ahead of time about her plans. He said he would have "asked her to exercise a little more caution."

Van der Sloot's lawyer, Maximo Altez, also confirmed the meeting to NBC but said it lasted "less than one minute." He said Twitty disguised her identity to sneak into the jail, where she told van der Sloot that she has "no hate in her soul" for him, Altez was quoted as saying. At that point, van der Sloot handed her Altez's business card and told her he couldn't talk to her without his lawyer present.

Two Dutch crime reporters have promised to reveal the inner workings of the mind of suspected killer Joran van der Sloot, the man accused of murdering Peruvian student Stephany Flores and who remains the lead suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, in their in-depth, investigative book "Joran's Murder Mysteries."Co-written by Bert Huisjes and John van den Heuvel, the reporter who recently interviewed van der Sloot in his Castro Castro prison cell in Lima, Peru, the book guarantees to deliver "the complete story about the true role of Joran van der Sloot in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and the killing of Stephany Flores.". The book boasts to uncover the "true story" of van der Sloot and is supposedly teeming with previously unpublished material from confidential police files, details behind Holloway's disappearance and one-of-a-kind images, among other things. Since van der Sloot's interview with van den Heuvel, the accused murderer was allegedly captured on prison surveillance video trying to purchase marijuana from a prison guard. Van der Sloot's attorney, Maximo Altez, is demanding that prison officials investigate the incident as a "set up.".
A month ago, Beth Holloway, Natalee's mother, reportedly paid a surprise visit to the man allegedly responsible for her daughter's disappearance five years ago. Natalee was in Aruba with her high school senior class when she was reported missing. she was reportedly last seen with van der Sloot.
Beth Holloway was reportedly accompanied by Dutch crime reporter Peter de Vries, who is well-known for capturing several hidden camera "confessions" in which van der Sloot told a variety of stores about Natalee's fate. The two made it to van der Sloot's cell, but were later thrown out once authorities discovered they had a hidden camera. The visit was intended "to create a TV special which would include her, the Flores family, and an interview with Joran van der Sloot.". Altez said Dutch media "snuck Beth Holloway-Twitty into Castro Castro without identifying who she was and put her face-to-face with Van der Sloot." Holloway told Van der Sloot that she had "no hate in her soul" for him, at which point the Dutchman handed her Altez's business card, claiming that he could not speak to her without his lawyer present. Van der Sloot is being held for the death of the 21-year-old Flores, who he allegedly confessed to fatally beating, strangling and suffocating in his Lima hotel room after she reportedly found information associated with Natalee Holloway on his laptop, according to transcripts of his signed confession. He has since recanted in an interview with a Dutch newspaper, and has attempted - thus far unsuccessfully - to have the confession suppressed for a variety of reasons. The book is set to be released Oct. 19.

FBI: Aruba studying missing teen's dental records

By DANICA COTO - Nov 19, 2010 12:15 PM GMT+1300Thu Nov 18 23:15:05 GMT 2010
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Dutch authorities are reviewing the dental records of missing U.S. teen Natalee Holloway as they analyze a jawbone with a tooth in it that was found in Aruba last week, the FBI told The Associated Press on Thursday. The girl's father, Dave Holloway, said earlier that he provided the records but added that he had received no new official information on the investigation on the Dutch island in the Caribbean. "The authorities haven't confirmed anything with me," he told the AP in a telephone interview. "It's pretty much total silence." Paul Daymond, an FBI spokesman in Birmingham, Alabama, said the agency sent some records electronically Wednesday and shipped the remaining dental impressions. It is unclear when those would arrive. A tourist found a jawbone last Friday and took it to the front desk of the Phoenix Hotel, said Ann Angela, spokeswoman for the Aruba prosecutor's office. It was then sent to the Netherlands for analysis, though there has been no announcement on whether the bone is human. "If it turns out to be a human bone, the investigation will continue," Angela said. "We cannot say when the results will be in." A forensic scientist in Aruba, however, has said that the bone is from a human female, Dave Holloway told the AP. Holloway said he received the information from a friend who spoke to the scientist. He did not identify either the friend or the scientist, and did not say whether the scientist is involved in the investigation or otherwise is in a position to know details of the case. Natalee Holloway, of Mountain Brook, Alabama, was 18 when she disappeared while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba in 2005. She was last seen leaving a bar with Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in her disappearance, on the final night of her trip. Aruba prosecutors have repeatedly said they lack evidence to charge Van der Sloot, who is currently in jail in Peru acused of killing a 21-year-old woman last May 30 — five years to the day after Holloway's disappearance. The search for Holloway has seen numerous possible leads that turned into dead ends. Earlier this year, police conducted an underwater search expedition after a couple from Pennsylvania took a picture of what they thought might have been a skull and bones. Divers found nothing but rocks and coral.http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2010-11-18/fbi-aruba-studying-missing-teen-s-dental-records.html

Jawbone analysis results to be announced Tuesday in Holloway investigation
Posted: Nov 22, 2010 2:20 PM EST Updated: Nov 22, 2010 3:20 PM EST
Click image to enlarge

ARUBA (WBRC) - The results of the forensic analysis on a jawbone found this month in Aruba will be announced Tuesday. This may potentially provide the first piece of concrete evidence in the death of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway.

Dutch forensic experts at the Hague have been comparing the bone to Holloway's dental records since it was found on the island on November 12th.

Holloway disappeared during a high school trip to Aruba in 2005 and her remains have never been found, despite extensive police searches.

Oranjestad, Aruba (CNN) -- Part of a jawbone with a tooth attached, found earlier this month on an Aruban beach does not belong to Natalee Holloway, an Alabama teenager last seen on the island in 2005, Aruban prosecutors said Tuesday.

Part of a jawbone with a tooth was found earlier this month by an American tourist near the Phoenix Hotel, a resort on the western side of the island, Aruban prosecutor Peter Blanken said.

The bone's discovery triggered the investigation into whether it belonged to Holloway, who was 18 when last seen.

The bone is human, said the Aruban Public Prosecutor's Office. But when compared to Holloway's dental records, sent to the forensic institute last week, testing "excludes the possibility that the bone material found in Aruba is that of Natalee Holloway."

Investigators tested the bone at the Netherlands Forensic Institute in The Hague, Netherlands. Their job was to determine whether it was a human or animal bone and -- if it proved to be human -- figure out who it belonged to.

Joran van der Sloot could serve part of his sentence in the Netherlands if he is convicted of murdering Stephany Flores.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands - Under an agreement signed Thursday, Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot could serve part of his sentence in the Netherlands if he is convicted of the murder of Peruvian Stephany Flores.
The foreign ministers of the two countries agreed that Dutch prisoners in Peru and Peruvians jailed in the Netherlands can apply to complete their prison terms in their homeland once their appeal process has been completed.
Peruvian prisons now hold 117 Dutch citizens, mostly serving time for drugs offenses. It was not immediately clear how many Peruvians are in Dutch jails.
Van der Sloot is awaiting trial on a first degree murder charge in the slaying of 21-year-old student Stephany Flores on May 30, 2010.
Van der Sloot, 24, also is the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway on the Caribbean island of Aruba.
Flores was killed five years to the day after Holloway disappeared. Her body was found in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room, and a coroner's report said she had been bludgeoned and asphyxiated.
Under the accord, if a prisoner received a longer sentence in Peru than the maximum under Dutch law, the sentence would be reduced, the Dutch ministry said. But each country has the right to deny the prisoner's transfer request.
The deal signed must be approved by both countries' parliaments.

Joran Van Der Sloot Expected To Enter Plea: Murder Trial (LIVE UPDATES)
Updated: 1/11/12 08:45 AM ET

Joran van der Sloot is expected to enter a plea today in Peru on charges that he killed Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel room in 2010.

The trial began Friday amid heightened expectations that van der Sloot -- who is also the lone suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba -- would plead guilty to killing Flores to avoid the more serious charge that he committed a premeditated homicide.

But after a hearing before three female judges and no jury in which the prosecution laid out its allegation against van der Sloot, the Dutch national instead requested and received more time to decide his plea. The trial resume today at 10 a.m. ET.

Prosecutors say that van der Sloot, 24, killed Flores, a 21-year-old Peruvian business student, in his hotel room after the two met while gambling in a casino on May 30, 2010 -- exactly five years after American teenager Holloway disappeared on Aruba. Flores' body was found on June 2 and van der Sloot was soon arrested, having crossed the border into Chile. Prosecutors say he tried to cover up the crime while stealing Flores' bank cards and cash.

Van der Sloot admitted to killing Flores in a videotaped confession. He said he flew into a rage and broke Flores' neck when she allegedly used his laptop to research his role in the Holloway case.

If convicted of "qualified murder" and robbery, van der Sloot faces 30 years behind bars.

His defense attorney Jose Luis Jimenez, says his client was in a fragile mental state from years of being labeled a killer in the international press. Jimenez hopes to reduce the charges from first-degree homicide to manslaughter.

If van der Sloot enters a guilty plea on Wednesday, the sentencing phase would begin immediately, according to CNN. If he pleads not guilty, the trial continues.

An Alabama judge has scheduled a hearing in Birmingham on whether to sign a court order declaring Natalee Holloway dead more than six years after the 18-year-old woman disappeared in Aruba.Thursday afternoon's hearing was scheduled before a suspect questioned in Holloway's disappearance, Joran van der Sloot, decided to plead guilty Wednesday to killing a young woman in Peru.
Probate Judge Alan King is hearing a request by Holloway's father to have her declared dead. The judge ruled in September that Dave Holloway had met the legal presumption of death for his daughter and it was up to someone to prove she didn't die in Aruba. He set the hearing Thursday to allow time for anyone to come forward.




The father's attorney, Mark White, says no new evidence has emerged.

A judge signed an order Thursday declaring Natalee Holloway dead, more than six years after the American teenager disappeared on the Caribbean island of Aruba.

Judge Alan King signed the order at the end of a hearing in a Birmingham courtroom that was attended by the missing woman's divorced parents, David and Beth Holloway.

David Holloway told the judge in September he believed his daughter had died and he wanted to stop payments on her medical insurance and use her $2,000 college fund to help her younger brother. Thursday's hearing was scheduled before a suspect questioned in Holloway's disappearance, Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Peru to the 2010 murder of a woman in Lima.

Judge declares Natalee Holloway legally dead

Alabama teen's father requested ruling




Natalee Holloway disappeared on a high school graduation trip to Aruba on May 30, 2005. The 18-year-old was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot early that day. Her body was never found and the case garnered intense media scrutiny and international attention.

King acted on a petition by David Holloway to have the missing 18-year-old declared dead.

The teen's mother originally objected, but her lawyer, Charlie DeBardeleben, said she subsequently changed her mind once she understood her husband's intentions. Natalee Holloway's parents were divorced in 1993 and Beth Holloway sat in the back row of the courtroom, mostly staring at her hands in her lap during the hearing Thursday afternoon.

She declined comment, but her attorney said, "She's ready to move on from this."

Mark White, an attorney for Dave Holoway, told the judge just before he announced his decision, that there was no evidence that Holloway was alive.

"Despite all that no evidence has been found Natalee Holloway is alive," he told the judge, noting that exhaustive searches, blanket international media coverage and even the offer of rewards had turned up nothing new.

King had ruled in September that Dave Holloway had met the legal presumption of death for his daughter and it was up to someone to prove she didn't die on a high school graduation trip. He had set the hearing now to allow some months for anyone to come forward.

Dave Holloway said he had expected to hear the judge would declare his daughter dead because he had no doubt about that.

"We've been dealing with her death for the last six and a half years," he said.

He added that the judge's order closes one chapter in a long story, but added: "We've still got a long way to go to get justice.

Authorities have long worked from the assumption that the young woman was dead in Aruba, where the case was officially classified as a homicide investigation.

That investigation remains open, though there has been no recent activity, said Solicitor General Taco Stein, an official with the prosecutor's office on the Dutch Caribbean island.

"The team that was acting in that investigation still is functioning as a team and they get together whenever there is information or things are needed in the case or a new tip arrives," Stein said in a phone interview Thursday.

In Peru, Van der Sloot, 24, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the murder of a 21-year-old woman he met at a Lima casino. Stephany Flores was killed five years to the day after Natalee Holloway, an 18-year-old from the wealthy Birmingham suburb of Mountain Brook, disappeared. She was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot.

Shortly after Flores' death on May 30, 2010, van der Sloot told police he killed the woman in Peru in a fit of rage after she discovered on his laptop his connection to the disappearance of Holloway. Police forensic experts disputed the claim.

Dave Holloway said he hopes van der Sloot gets the 30-year sentence sought by Peruvian prosecutors.

"Everybody knows his personality. I believe he is beyond rehabilitation," Holloway said.

Attorneys said both parents said they hope van der Sloot's next stop is Birmingham, where he faces federal charges accusing him of extorting $25,000 from Beth Holloway to reveal the location of her daughter's body. Prosecutors said the money was paid, but nothing was disclosed about the missing woman's whereabouts.

"I expect to see him in Birmingham," Dave Holloway said.

Peru Considers Extraditing Joran Van der Sloot


Published April 24, 2012

Fox News Latino

Peru is evaluating a U.S. extradition request for jailed Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, according to his attorney.

Van der Sloot is the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. He is serving a 28-year sentence in Peru for killing a woman he met in a Lima casino.

The 24-year-old also faces extortion charges in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Holloway's mother to tell her where to find the remains of her daughter, who was 18 when she disappeared while on vacation.

Attorney Máximo Altez said Monday the U.S. extradition request "is in the process of being evaluated" by Peruvian authorities.

The lawyer says his client fears extradition because U.S. prisons have a reputation for being "very hard" on inmates.

Altez told Peruvian daily El Comercio he believed that Van der Sloot had appealed his sentence. Once that process resolved, Altez said, his client would most likely be extradited to the United States to be tried and would return to Peru to serve the remainder of his sentence.

Joran van der Sloot's U.S. Extradition Approved

Posted: 06/04/2012 5:37 pm

The Peruvian Supreme Court has approved the extradition of Joran van der Sloot to the U.S. on charges of extorting money from the family of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway.

There is just one small catch -- Van der Sloot's extradition will not take place until he serves out his 28-year sentence for the 2010 murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores. The Peruvian business student was killed five years to the day after the unsolved disappearance in Aruba of Holloway.

"We were surprised by how quickly the extradition request was heard," Van der Sloot's attorney, Max Altez, told Reuters. "We think there is a lot of pressure from the U.S. government."

Friday's ruling is not bad news for the prosecution, according to an international defense expert.

"There is an upside because the U.S. now has several years to put together a murder investigation. On murder, there is no statute of limitations," said Michael Griffith, senior partner at the International Legal Defense Counsel.

Van der Sloot has been indicted in the U.S. on charges that he extorted $25,000 from the mother of Natalee Holloway. The 18-year-old from Mountain Brook, Ala., vanished while on a class trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving an Oranjestad nightclub with van der Sloot, then a 17-year-old Dutch honors student living in Aruba. Holloway's body has never been found, and van der Sloot has not been charged in her disappearance.

Prosecutors said that in exchange for the money he received from Holloway’s mother, van der Sloot promised to reveal how Holloway died and the location of her body.

Van der Sloot, 24, is serving a 28-year prison sentence at Piedras Gordas prison in Ancon for the murder of Flores. The Peruvian business student was found stabbed to death in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room on June 2, 2010.

Van der Sloot will be eligible for parole after serving one-third of his sentence. He could be extradited in as few as seven years.

According to Griffith, whose most renowned case, involving an American incarcerated in a Turkish prison, was the basis for the film and book "Midnight Express," Van der Sloot would likely face a five- to 10-year sentence in the U.S. for the alleged extortion. But, it is possible additional charges related to Holloway could be filed later.

"Maybe by the time he is released, [the U.S.] will have an airtight case against him in Natalee Holloway's disappearance," said Griffith.

June 22 2012
The mother of Natalee Holloway, an American teenager who disappeared in Aruba seven
years ago, has sued the supermarket tabloid National Enquirer, alleging that it published articles
about her daughter that it knew were false in order to increase sales.


Beth Holloway, in a suit filed in federal court in Birmingham, Ala., said the
coverage over seven years caused her “emotional stress so severe that no reasonable person could be
expected to endure it.”


Holloway, an 18-year-old high-school student from Alabama, vanished during a
senior class trip to the Caribbean island in May 2005. Authorities have connected her disappearance
to Joran van der Sloot, a Dutch citizen raised on the island who was seen leaving a bar with her.


Van der Sloot, 24, was the target of an investigation into Holloway’s
disappearance and remains the chief suspect. He is in prison in Peru for another case.


Holloway was declared legally dead in January. Her body has never been found.


An attorney for American Media said yesterday that the company had not yet seen
the complaint.

Joran van der Sloot's bride-to-be speaks to "Crimesider"

LIMA, Peru -- Say yes to the mess?

Wedding season is upon us and one of the most surprising nuptials of this season is about to take place inside a maximum security prison in Peru. The groom is Joran van der Sloot, the Dutchman convicted of murdering a young woman in a Lima hotel room in 2010. But van der Sloot may be most infamous for being the main suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005.
The bride, Leidy Figueroa , is a 24-year-old from Lima. Her dress won't come from Kleinfeld's, and Randy Fenoli of the TLC network's "Say Yes to the Dress" isn't helping the bride choose her gown. But the wedding is sure to make news, nevertheless.
Joran van der Sloot is scheduled to say "I do" on May 22 at about noon, according to Figueroa, who spoke to CBS News' Crimesider. The civil ceremony will take place inside the Piedras Gordas prison, where van der Sloot is serving a 28 year sentence for murder. Figueroa tells Crimesider that the witnesses will be van der Sloot's Peruvian lawyer, Maximo Altez, and Figueroa's godmother.

Joran van der Sloot's family in Aruba will not be attending the wedding. But his mother has met his intended during her earlier visits to Peru.

The bride-to-be tells Crimesider that she met van der Sloot in July 2010 when she went with a cousin to visit another inmate. That inmate acted as a matchmaker for Figueroa and van der Sloot, and since then Figueroa has been visiting the prison twice a week. She says she always brings home-cooked meals to her husband-to-be.

In 2012, Joran van der Sloot was convicted of killing Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel after the two had met earlier at a casino poker table. The Flores murder happened five years to the date after Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba. She was last seen in May 2005 with van der Sloot. Holloway has never been found and van der Sloot was never charged in connection to her disappearance.

Figueroa has recently bought a house near the prison, and says she is five months pregnant with van der Sloot's child; the baby is due in September. According to van der Sloot's lawyer, the Dutchman is studying international business management through correspondence courses from a Peruvian university.

Figueroa tells Crimesider that Joran van der Sloot has transformed himself "into a new person." She also says that van der Sloot is enjoying his prison arts and crafts classes.

snipped from the above article

Joran van der Sloot has served four years of his 28 year sentence for the murder of Stephany Flores. When he is released from prison in Peru he will be extradited to the United States where he faces federal extortion charges in Alabama in connection to the Natalee Holloway case.

Natalee Holloway's father in Aruba pursuing new lead in hunt for body

Published May 12, 2015 FoxNews.com

Nearly a decade after Alabama teen Natalee Holloway vanished on a high school trip to Aruba, her father is back on the Caribbean island with a private detective, probing new clues and focusing on a new claim from a purported eyewitness.

Holloway was just 18 when she disappeared on May 30, 2005. The prime suspect long has been Joran van der Sloot, who is in imprisoned in Peru for a 2010 murder. Dave Holloway is convinced Van der Sloot killed his daughter, but his latest quest is to find her body –- and investigate the new eyewitness claim.

“I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night she was alive,” island resident Jurrien de Jong told the syndicated TV program Inside Edition. “I was the eyewitness.

“I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction,” De Jong continued. “In about five minutes he came out with Natalee in his arms, and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor, and then he made an opening in a crawl space… I knew she was dead.”

Natalee Holloway was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot. De Jong said he originally kept his secret because he was himself involved in unspecified illegal activities. But he told Inside Edition he was moved to speak out after seeing a report in which van der Sloot told an undercover investigator Natalee Holloway was buried at sea, which he believes is a lie.

Now, with an investigator and a cadaver dog in tow, Dave Holloway is out to determine if there is any truth to the latest claim. In the past, the search for justice for his daughter has taken several cruel twists. Several supposed leads have led nowhere, including conflicting statements from van der Sloot, who was arrested twice but never charged.

Van der Sloot has claimed to have left a drunken Holloway alone on a beach; he was caught on hidden camera confessing to the killing, and he once told Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren that he sold her into slavery. He was also charged with trying to extort $250,000 from Natalee Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway, by claiming he could lead her to the remains of her daughter.

De Jong told the distraught father what he knew last year, and also made the claims to a Dutch newspaper, Algemeen Dagblad.

Eric Olthof, Aruba's prosecutor, told Inside Edition hisoffice is investigating the claims and expected his investigation could take as long as two months.

Van der Sloot, who was 17 when Holloway disappeared, is serving a 28-year sentence in Peru for the 2010 murder of Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel room. Upon completion of his sentence, he faces extradition to the U.S., where he will face charges of extorting and defrauding Beth Holloway.

Dave and Beth Holloway had divorced several years before their daughter disappeared.

10 years later, man claims to have witnessed what happened to Natalee Holloway

POSTED 9:30 PM, MAY 11, 2015, BY TRIBUNE MEDIA WIRE

ARUBA — It has been almost ten years since Natalee Holloway disappeared while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba — and now a new alleged witness has come forward with new details about the night Holloway disappeared.

“I saw Natalee Holloway on the last night she was alive. I was the eyewitness,” Jurrien de Jong told Inside Edition.

De Jong claims he witnessed Joran van der Sloot, the primary witness in the case, carrying Holloway’s body the night she was last seen.

“I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction,” De Jon said. “In about five minutes, he came out with Natalee in his arms and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor… and then he made an opening in a crawl space… I knew she was dead.”

The witness said he didn’t come forward sooner because he was involved in illegal activities at the time. According to Inside Edition, the prosecutor in Aruba is going to take a look into De Jong’s claims.

Meanwhile, Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, has returned to Aruba to follow up on new clues. His daughter was 18 when she vanished on May 30, 2005.

Joran van der Sloot maintains his innocence in connection with Holloway’s disappearance.
