Aruban Police Make Arrest in Holloway Case

By MARGARET WEVER
Associated Press Writer

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Authorities have made an arrest in the case of a young Alabama woman who disappeared while vacationing in Aruba, an Aruban official said Saturday.

Mariaine Croes, a spokeswoman for the public prosecutor's office, said Aruban authorities were not prepared to disclose why the person was arrested. Croes also would not say how the arrest was linked to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway nearly a year ago, on the final night of her high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Croes would only say that the person who was arrested is 19 and has the initials "G.V.C." In Aruba, when an arrest is announced, officials usually release only a suspect's initials, and not a full name.

Holloway, an 18-year-old honors student from Mountain Brook, Ala., was last seen on May 30, 2005, leaving an Aruba bar with Dutch national Joran van der Sloot and Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. The young men were arrested in June but were released after a court ruled there was not enough evidence to hold them.

There have been a number of false leads in the investigation, and at least three other people were detained without being charged in the case.

In recent weeks, Aruban police have searched sand dunes on the northern coast of the island. Dutch Marines, the FBI and hundreds of volunteers have previously searched for Holloway.

Yeah, only the initials. Except for the two black guys that worked at a local hotel, and showed up on every TV news report for 48 hours.

Barney Fife would take the Aruban Police to school where criminal investigations are concerned. Those clowns define inept.

... and while Greta Van Sustren masturbated furiously at this most recent break in the case, the rest of the world failed to give a fuck, instead choosing to focus on shit that really mattered.

While my heartfelt condolences go out to the family, there's only one lesson to be learned here. That is NOT to let your teenage daugher get drunk, stoned, hang out in dive bars late at night and offer her tight little ass up to every two bit casanova she meets in said dive bar while being drunk, stoned and horney.

Bad things seem to happen to young ladies who behave like that. It's not right, but it does happen. Again and again and again. There's a new one damn near every week. The world is dangerous enough for young girls without that kind of reckless behaviour.

I'm sorry about Natalie, really I am, but it's old news, time to move on.

I hope something tragic happens to my family and the media grabs on to it. Then brings it up on a regular basis for years. IS there anything new with the Shaivo lady?
