An Aruban judge ordered the release of Joran van der Sloot earlier today. This could possibly end any hopes for prosecutions in the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway in 2005.
The other suspects, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe have already been released and prosecutors decided not to appeal the decision of the judge today in light of the denied appeal that a three judge panel turned down earlier this week.
The judges reasons for freeing Van der Sloot followed along the same lines as the previous decision about the Kalpoes, that the prosecution had not brought any new significant information that would incriminate the suspects in the murder/disappearance of Natalee Holloway.
The prosecution will announce before the end of the year whether that will proceed to try the three suspects in the case.
