Joran van der Sloot to Remain in Jail

A judge in Aruba today granted the prosecutions request to hold Joran van der Sloot for an additional eight days on the suspicion of manslaughter in the investigation of the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway during the summer of 2005.

He was arrested on Wednesday in the Netherlands and flown to Aruba Friday where he spent the weekend in jail awaiting a court appearance.

Who else is talking about Natalee? Let’s see…

I just came across this little story at Jezebel thanks to c.a. Marks over at Alabama Improper. I guess whoever wrote the original story was offended by something on the menu where they had ‘four great reasons to eat here’ and number four was ‘your daughter might be here’ and since the writer of the story had been on a self-professed ‘Holloway Tour’ all day they assumed that the menu was a direct jibe at the missing Natalee Holloway. I don’t know, it could be, but did you bother to ask how long they had that particular menu? I have actually seen that exact thing on different menus at several different bars and I am pretty sure that there weren’t missing women from all of them that they were making fun of. Personally it seems that the writer  was feeling guilty about being on their ‘Holloway tour’ and had to put that guilt on someone else. People get jealous and possessive in exactly the same manner when they have been fucking around on their significant other. It’s something like Transference.

…Most of what I find on other blogs is basically the same thing I have here, just rehashing shit that’s already been on the news…

Found this article over at ABC News. Apparently lawyers for Satish Kalpoe are claiming that prosecutors are just rehashing old evidence by claiming that they have new technology and that it might not be legal. It certainly is legal and new evidence or old who gives a shit. If there is enough of it to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to a judge then that’s all prosecutors need.

Prosecutors also feel that they have enough evidence to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that Natalee is dead, even without having a body.

Scared Monkeys, as usual, has quite a bit of information as well as opinion and I agree with them on most if not all of it. According to lawyer L. van den Eeden, who represented Joran van der Sloot in the Netherlands, his client was very emotional before departing the Netherlands for Aruba…

He has just got his life together. This arrest has now undone that like a bolt from the blue.

Also, according to their (Scared Monkeys) Radio Daily Commentary the mainstream media (and all of us re-spouting MSM stories are butchering some of the facts in the case.

  1. I have been telling this story every place I can. I am hoping the authorities in Aruba, as well as potential jurors there, will listen to what I have to say. This notion that circumstantial evidence is the right thing to do – I can tell you first hand that it isn’t the right thing to do. If Beth and her frontier justice cowboys hadn’t come to town and “convicted” Joran the first night they were there, this case would probably have been solved long ago. The reason it isn’t solved is because Joran is a sweet guy, and his family are very nice, respectable people, caught up in the Aruba tragedy – not of their own making. I was kidnapped when I was 16 years old – not by the last people I was known to be with (my friends and I went to a late movie.) After we got back to my friend’s house, I was leaving when an older brother of one of my friends offered me a ride home. Nobody knew this but him and me. On the way home, he drove out over the bridge, into the country, instead of to my house. I had to jump out of a moving car to get away from him. He said he would kill me if I touched that door handle again, but I did anyway, and got out. I hid in ditches and a corn field when he circled back looking for me, time and again. I managed to make my way to a farmouse, and I got home safely, by way of the farmer who got out his shot gun.
    I have had many near episodes when I lived in California. In Sacramento, two police officers pulled me over late at night. They thought I “was someone else,” and let me go, but then they followed me to the light and motioned for me to turn left against the red light, and when I did, they put on their siren and lights and stopped me again. They said they had to take me to jail for running the red light – and I replied, “And, no, you are not,” and drove off.
    Another time, I was coming home late and a car started following me. Every time I would come to a red light, the guy would jump out of his car and run up towards my car door – I ran the red light several times to get away from him. Finally, I got the attention of a driver in another car beside my car – he said to get my car in front of his, and he wouldn’t let the guy follow me any more – and that worked.
    I want to caution people not to draw conclusions because Joran and Natalee had a very brief romantic tryst. He wanted to get home because he had final exams the next day and it was 2 a.m. She wanted to stay on the beach because she actually didn’t want to go back to Alabama – she said so, and she kept asking guys if they lived in big houses. If Beth had not placed the focus on Joran, the case could have been solved, but the way it was, people were afraid to come forward and tell what they saw, for fear they might be another one to get arrested. The failure of the investigation is totally at the hands of Beth. Natalee called her “Hitler’s Sister,” not only to Joran but to her classmate. Natalee may have become embarrassed when she woke up from a hangover to discover her mother was on the island and bringing worldwide attention to her escapades. Also, Natalee said rude things to the Kalpoe brothers when they were in the car. Perhaps they were not happy with her and got rough with her after Joran was taken home. Who knows? If you weren’t there, you don’t know, either. gw.

  2. Grace, do you have any proof or data to back up your claims that the boy is innocent? He very well may be but for an innocent man he’s certainly acted guilty from the get-go.
    It may not be the “right” thing to do but it IS Aruban (and Dutch) law.
    Where do you know Joran and his family from?
    Sounds like you had a pretty rough time, I’m glad you made it out OK.
    What rude things did Natalee have to say to them in the car?
    Teenagers always say bad things about their parents, calling her mother Little Hitler is nothing new to a parent, particularly if you have any discipline at all in your house. That’s the nature of having kids.
