A leading forensic investigator Michael Baden says that if they would have collected the right kind of evidence in the first days of the case they would probably have all they need to discover what happened to Natalee. Anita van der Sloot agrees. She said they should have interrogated the boys thoroughly right away and taken detailed statements of everything that they did and everyone they saw. After those first ten days they then went into catch up mode. Recently there were three more arrests in the case Geoffrey van Cromvoirt, A. B. and Guido Wever. None of these three are still in custody.
Dave is asked his theory as to what happened to his daughter. He says his theory has always been that someone used a boat to dispose of Natalee. Tito says there is talk that there was a boat but not the Tattoo. Tito feels that these three are involved that there are pieces missing. Joran however will not be making anymore statements to the police. He feels he has told them all he knows and it is their job to solve this case. Beth has a resolve to continue trying to find answers. And while all of this is happening with the criminal investigation in Aruba there is a wait for the judgement of the pending civil trial in New York, where the judge has yet to render her decision. Greta says Fox has been on this story since the beginning and vows to stay on it until the end.
Greta and Beth returned to the home Natalee lived in and the room that Beth has left just the way it was the day Natalee left. The following is my synopis of this Greta interview.
Tuesday marks one year since Natalee Holloway went to Carlos 'n Charlie's, left the bar and vanished. We have some special interviews to show you tonight. In anticipation of the one-year anniversary, we took a day trip with our video and still cameras on Friday to her home in Mountain Brook, Alabama.
At her home — besides taking pictures that are posted today — we interviewed Natalee's friends. You will see those interviews tonight. Two of the friends had been with her in Aruba and I was struck by what they thought when they first heard Natalee had missed her flight.
Natalee's friends' lives have changed much in this year: They went from essentially childhood to adulthood. They were high school students one year ago and now they have a year of college under their belts. It is obvious that Natalee's friends are close to Beth — and Beth to them.
We walked around Natalee's house with Beth and Natalee's friends, including going into Natalee's bedroom. Her bedroom reflects that transition from childhood to adulthood — there were lots of little Wizard of Oz dolls in contrast with her newly purchased adult dresses for her expected August sorority rush parties. There are pictures of her room posted.
