Vandersloot is never going to tell where Natalee is. We all know that he has stated in the past that she was taken out and put in water. That is a vast area in the ocean that they will never be able to find her. I believe that Natalee's mother should take a trip to Aruba and go out on a body of water with her ex, the body of water where they believe her to be and place flowers and wreaths and say some prayers. I believe if she did this that she would feel some peace within herself. She will drive herself crazy trying to find an answer that is never coming.  :o :o :o :o :o

News out today that Beth Holloway and Peter de Vries from Nl working on a documentary together regarding Natalee. They have also been to Aruba and met with Blanken, and were off to Alabama. This should be quite an interesting one as it may have something on the extortion plot by Joran.
I think it's an excellent move, since the Docu of Joran and his mother, try to make Joran out as a victim, which is a real stretch of imagination.

A friend told me last nite that she had Nancy Grace show on and that in Aruba, the beach where Natalee supposedly was on, that a jawbone was found with teeth. The authorities had mentioned it could be Natalee's. Tests were going to be done. That was the only information she gave me.

Here's the link to the latest on the bone being tested. The bone was found on the beach of the Phoenix Hotel near one of the locations mentioned by van der Sloot.

Yes the jaw bone has been determined by Forensics in Aruba to be that of a young white caucasian. The NFI in Netherlands is where they do detailed testing and can determine DNA. The dental records would be faster and I don't doubt those were already asked for, although I don't know.

The only problem with finding things on the beach now is that Thomas went through there and caused considerable upheaval destroying beach huts and making a mess of the beaches. There is speculation amongst those that live in Aruba and visit there, the remians could have come from anywhere. We're all hopeful there is finally an answer for the Twitty/Holloway families.

New technology out now that can test for date rape drug in root canals which can stay present for many years after death according to Dr. Baden.
One of the Kalpoe brothers mentioned in a statement that if girls weren't responding to Joran fast enough he would use date rape drugs on tourist girls.

I feel everyone on here is praying that this is Natalee's remains. This would be a great boost to get this case solved. And knowing about the date rape drug maybe able to be found in the testing, makes it all that more possible for a conviction in this case. Wouldn't it be a wonderful present for the families of this young woman if this case could be solved. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Oranjestad, Aruba (CNN) -- Aruban prosecutors plan to release Tuesday the results of tests conducted on a jawbone found on an island beach and disclose whether it belongs to missing U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway, officials said.

The tests, conducted at the Netherlands Forensic Institute in The Hague, Netherlands, were to first determine whether the bone is that of a human or that of an animal. If the bone is human, authorities said, they would attempt to determine through DNA testing if it belonged to Holloway. The Alabama 18-year-old was last seen on the island in 2005.

Aruba Solicitor General Taco Stein said prosecutors will issue a statement Tuesday with the test results.

Holloway's dental records were sent to the forensic institute last week, according to the FBI.


"Dave has been in contact with Aruban authorities and spoke with FBI this morning, the agent working the case. Dave believes it is Natalee," Miller said about Holloway's father, Dave Holloway.

A call to the father was not immediately returned Monday.

Part of a jawbone with a tooth was found earlier this month by an American tourist near the Phoenix Hotel, a large resort on the western side of the island, Aruban prosecutor Peter Blanken said. Contacted by CNN, the hotel referred questions to local authorities.

The prosecutor said the bone was initially examined by a forensic expert in Aruba, who determined it was from a young woman. But Blanken cautioned the final determination would be made by the forensic institute.

Also on Monday, police collected a second bone that was found earlier this month on the beach by a New Jersey family, said Ana Angela, spokeswoman for Aruban prosecutors. However, "it does not appear to be human," said Richard Roy, general manager of the Westin Hotel.

The bone was found in the same general area as the first. The family, who was staying at the Westin, put it on their hotel balcony. They told CNN that once they returned home and heard media reports on the jawbone, they called the FBI and then contacted the Westin. Staffers at the hotel found the bone on the balcony and notified police.

Holloway was last seen in the early hours of May 30, 2005, leaving an Oranjestad nightclub with Joran van der Sloot and two other men. She was visiting the island with about 100 classmates to celebrate their graduation from Mountain Brook High School in suburban Birmingham, Alabama.

Van der Slootwasdetained twice in connection with Holloway's disappearance but never charged. He is now awaiting trial in Lima, Peru, on a murder charge in the death of Peruvian student Stephany Flores. Her body was found in May in a hotel room registered to van der Sloot. A surveillance camera captured images of the two entering the room .

Van der Sloot, 23, is also charged with wire fraud and extortion in Alabama for allegedly attempting to extort more than $250,000 from Holloway's family in return for disclosing the location of her body.

Her father believes it to be her...that must mean something has come out prior to the announcement they are making tomorrow.  Personally, if it isn't her, they wouldn't be making this such a big deal, setting a date to make the annoucement.

PRESS RELEASE

Bone material not of Natalee Holloway

At the request of the Aruban Public Prosecutor's Office the Netherlands Forensic Institute has conducted forensic anthropological and DNA investigations on bone material, a piece of jawbone with a tooth. These investigations were executed simultaneously. Detailed examination by the NFI excludes the possibility that the bone material found in Aruba is that of Natalee Holloway.

Exclusion after comparing dental records

It was, first, necessary to establish that the bone material was in fact human material. This is the case. Thus the forensic anthropological investigation was expanded to include an investigation by forensic odontologists. Using the dental records of Natalee Holloway, such as the location of wisdom teeth and fillings, a comparison was made with the jaw bone recovered on Aruba. Based on these comparisons it could be excluded that the investigated bone material and molar came from Natalee Holloway.

DNA testing

Along with the forensic anthropological and odontological research, the NFI initiated a forensic DNA investigation. However, only a very small amount of DNA material was present and that was also of low quality. The bone appeared to have been exposed to various (weather) influences and proved to be porous. DNA researchers at the NFI therefore have applied extensive and highly sophisticated techniques to the DNA present in the bone to be examined.

On the basis of the comparison of the dental records the possibility that the bone material came from Natalee Holloway was excluded, therefore further DNA testing has been stopped. There is still a possibility that the molar from the jawbone could be used for further efforts to generate a DNA profile. However this follow-up study of said molar would inhibit future research into identifying the person from whom the bone originates.

Given that, based on dental records, it can be ruled out that the bone fragment came from Natalee Holloway, the Office of the Public Prosecutor in Aruba has decided not yet to carry out further research on the material. The prosecution will decide what further action will be taken to identify the bone material.

Natalee Holloway Investigation

The Office of the Public Prosecutor in Aruba has been involved in an investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway since her dissapearance. The case retains the constant attention from law enforcement on the island.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All the pomp and ceremony regarding the Press conference; everyone was so sure this was Natalee, even her father Dave was certain they could finally bring Natalee home.  :(

I hope at least this mandible will answer some other family's quest. I believe an airplane went down near the coast of SA and not all were recovered. In the wake of Thomas, seas have been rough and made havoc of Aruban beaches, and likely alot of foreign material was deposited there with the constant changing of tides.

Joran van der Sloot's computer to get FBI going-over in Natalee Holloway case

 


Posted by Camille Mann

(CBS/WIAT) BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - FBI agents will travel to Peru to inspect the hard drive of a laptop belonging to Joran van der Sloot, who is accused of killing a Peruvian woman, and who has twice been arrested in connection with the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway case.

Federal agents are scheduled to meet with two agents of the Peruvian National Police High Technology Crime Division at their police headquarters in Lima on March 14, according to a report by CNN.


They hope to find clues on Van der Sloot's computer to help solve the 2005 disappearance of Holloway, who was on a school trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving a club with Van der Sloot and two other local teens. While he has never been charged in the Mountain Brook teen's disappearance he is still considered the prime suspect.


The FBI was able to win an indictment against Van der Sloot on wire fraud and extortion charges. They claim the Dutchman promised the Holloway family information about Natalee's fate but never provided any relevant information, reports CBS affiliate WIAT.


The laptop could also provide critical information about Van der Sloot's legal troubles in Peru. He is now being held in the Castro Castro prison facing charges for allegedly killing 21-year-old Peruvian Stephany Flores last May. Her body was found in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room, 5 years to the day after Holloway's disappearance, WIAT reports.


Van der Sloot confessed he killed Flores when she found material relating to Holloway on his laptop, police say, the same computer the FBI will now get a chance to examine, reported the station.
