Some following the Holloway case first heard of Peter de Vries this past February when he made the startling announcement that he had solved the mystery of what happened to Natalee Holloway. But for those that have been a little closer to this investigation, we know that Peter began his quest to bring down Joran van der Sloot back in the fall of 2006 and has not stopped with that same goal in mind for all this time.
Peter de Vries really became the central focus of this investigation on January of 2008 when sitting at an interview on the Pauw & Witteman Show Joran tossed a glass of wine in his face. It only a few weeks later that Peter announced to the world that the case was solved, by obtaining a Van Confession by Patrick van der Eeem. Peter would fly Beth Holloway to Holland to watch this 90 minute show where Joran describes how the body of Natalee was disposed of. Joran however was under the influence of cocaine at the time and there were those like Sam Redman who would question the validity of confessions under the influence of drugs. Many who had been steadfast supporters of Joran like Greta van Susteren and Joe Tacopina would be very disgusted over Joran's admissions on this tape. Almost a year later Peter would again try and get more damnable evidence against Joran while trying to implement him in selling girls from Thailand into prostetution. In both of these de Vries hidden camera operations Joran would deny what he said and claim he knew there was something suspicious going on. Greta would jump into this one too with another interview with Joran where he lied implimenting his father because she was willing to pay him ten grand. I guess after almost four years Joran was tired of everyone making money on this story but him.
In late October of 2006 it was announced that the controversial Dutch reporter, Peter de Vries was beginning to dig into the case of the missing Alabam teen, Natalee Holloway. Initially there seemed to be a 50/50 split on whether this man was a saint or a sinner when it came to investigative reporting.
