Report: Natalee Holloway's Body Found in Aruba
Authorities in Aruba think they have found the body of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway. This, according to a blog of the Broward Palm Beach New Times called "The Juice."
It wrote on Thursday morning:
A Miami-based flight attendant for American Airlines tells The Juice that a cadaver dog was aboard a Miami-to-Aruba flight. The officer with the dog was going to search for the remains of Holloway.
"They think they've found where Natalee Holloway's remains are, and they're taking the dog down to confirm that," said the flight attendant, who lives in Fort Lauderdale. "They're not telling anybody because Aruba is trying to keep this quiet."
Earlier this week a piece of bone was found on a beach in Aruba. Forensics experts were testing it to see if it is human. If it is, a DNA test would be done to see if it came from Natalee.
WSFA-TV in Montgomery, Alabama reported Thursday that the bone did indeed come from a human, and that it belongs to a young woman. The report says it is part of a lower bone, including an intact molar tooth.
Natalee disappeared during a high school graduation trip to the island in 2005. Joran van der Sloot was last seen with her. He is currently being held for the murder of another young woman in Peru.
The mystery surrounding Natalee Holloway's missing body goes on. A jawbone recently found on a beach in Aruba does not belong to the missing teenager.
Dutch investigators say they compared a tooth on the bone to dental records the Holloway family provided and "it could be excluded that the investigated bone material and molar came from Natalee Holloway," the prosecutors said.
A tourist found the bone last week, leading to hope that it was Natalee's, giving her family some sense of closure. But it was not to be.
Natalee was last seen in the company of Joran van der Sloot while on a vacation to the Caribbean island in 2005. Van der Sloot has been questioned several times but never charged in her death. He is currently being held in Peru for allegedly killing a young woman there.
