Aruban Blame Game
Gerold Dompig, the Aruban deputy police chief in charge of the case of Natalee Holloway's disappearance, discusses the case in detail for the first time, telling Vanity Fair special correspondent Bryan Burrough that the biggest obstacles to finding Holloway have been her mother and stepfather, Beth and Jug Twitty. (Read More)



"You know what? Another thing, all this speculation that Natalee drank, that she did drugs, that she slept around, Even if it were true, why would that even be an issue? Even if it were true, why is everybody piling on an 18-year-old missing girl?" Nancy Grace

"The same thing happens when you have a regular rape case in a courtroom. All of a sudden, it‘s the rape victim‘s fault that the rape was committed. And that‘s basically what they‘re saying: We screwed up, but it wasn‘t our fault. It‘s disgraceful. It‘s disgusting." Stacey Honowitz, Florida Assistant State Attorney


"The leader investigator—slandering Natalee kind of makes me wonder how seriously did they take this case in the first place?" -Candice DeLong, Former FBI Profiler

The darkside of Aruba is the reality of a real underworld existing in the tiny Caribbean island. My sister called off her wedding honeymoon in Aruba in next February for the fear of becoming the next victim, another missing young beautiful blonde bride. She is so scared of that tall, ugly and blue-eyed Dutch teenager guy as mentioned by the dirty chief police Dompig. Aruba is in fact an very unhappy and dirty island. I cancelled the Aruba package and exchanged for a better Thailand cruise deal. The credit card company said I won't lose any money that they simply will not credit the Aruba Tourists Department for their instability of protecting the American tourists on the island.

Another fine example of someone not taking responsibility for their actions. It couldn't have been, so it must have been you. Yes, all the while it was Natalee's fault for disappearing. What is wrong with you people? You can't possibly be wondering why nobody wants to come to your island anymore, do you? Let it sink. There are plenty of other nicer places to go without so much trash.

This is the most stupid post I have ever read - why not have your sister go to some place really safe like New Orleans, or DC or Vegas never anything bad ever happens there - or maybe your sister should just stay home - someone that actually thinks like your sister must a paranoid nutcase!!!

Hey Rik is back. Now we can get some good dialogue again. Bad stuff happens everywhere, not just in Aruba. Albeit, Aruba is seedier than a watermelon. Face it, how can after all this time, nothing have come up as to her whereabouts or what happened. Either there is a cover up or someone is just plain incompetent. It's the Holidays, regardless of what you believe in. So Beth is a bit of a freak. But she's also a person who has lost her daughter. Unless you have children of your own, people have no way of understanding her pain. Give NH back to her family. It's the decent thing to do. This isn't about politics or any other senseless rubbish people like to equate to this case. It's simple. How would you feel if this was happening to you? Think about it.

The sad but real fact is we have no idea why Natalee is missing! Could be it was truly by her own error in judgement in doing or choosing to do something that caused harm to herself or could be some other person caused her harm. Reality is we have no idea what happened after she left CC that night and most likly never will. And to say the 3 boys know the answer is just an assumption! They very possibly know no more than anyone else, and really could have been left on the beach as they say. My guess is someone else got hold of her after Joran left and whoever it was had plenty of time to take her out to sea the next morning with no focus at all on them. There are docks right there on the beach and she could have been hidden in any one of those boats until daylight and then taken out. Would explain why there is no trace!

How come nobody in Aruba or Holland can remove Dompig from his job as the assistant police chief? Is Dompig a dictator or not, like the Lybia dictator Colonel Kadafi. Even though Kadafi had named himself as a low rank and file officer, he has all his big shot generals and goverment working for him. Is this the case in Aruba? So Dompig is the strongman. The Aruban government and Holland ministry of justice are just a joke. They all are working for Dompig. So the friendly happy island of Aruba is now exposed as a troubling ditatorship. And Dompig has the real power to challenge the United States of America. To Dompig, an admission of his wrong doing means nothing to him, nobdy can touch him, he has the police force in control. His police force is militarily armed to teeth. Dompig has an arsenal full of assault rifles and rocket propelled gernades and militery communications gears and armors. Just beware of the worsening situations in Aruba. Dompig can capure and hold all the American tourists as hostages. He is not afraid of the stupid boycott.

So everything is Natalee's fault, but nothing is the boys' fault - as if referring to them as "boys" makes them seem so much younger. All of these young people are close in age. Maybe all of them made mistakes in judgment - I don't know I wasn't there. If any of us had been there, she'd probably be at college studying for and taking exams right now.

But two questions still sting - why did they lie originally? and why did PVDS say "no body, no crime"? That's a very creepy thing to say if you have no idea what happened to a person. At the very least that seems like obstructing justice. Yeah, I know they are old questions, but they still add up to obstructing justice - maybe that's not a crime in Aruba.

How do we know what Paulus VDS said - it is all hearsay - he is of a legal nature - people that are trained that way, think that way - my very good friend is a lawyer, she always goes into legal mode in situations like this - his statement is actually very true though - without a body there is nothing. And there is not even any evidence - I think this whole deal with Paulus is one of the most overstated issues - he had nothing to do with this!!!! In any way!!! As for lying, it is often the case with young people they feel a small lie is easier than telling the truth - he was not proud of leaving her on the beach - seemed easier to say the front of the hotel - it was a gut reaction to being with a girl - not with any deep thought - very typical of young guys!!

according to amigoe this morning, escaping jail is not a crime on aruba. aiding and abetting is a crime but an inmate is free to escape anytime. strange way of looking at things. lying to the police is not a crime on aruba. no penalty at all. the only crime punishable by rape and death seems to be being young, having a good time partying and not shooting dutch party boys on sight.

Rik, The Antilles are not Aruba and no offense, but times have changed since you were born. You appear to be bright, so why do you continue to back these boys? Is it because they are the "underdog" or what you might consider fellow countrymen. They are neither. You have kids and are probably one of the few who does on this Blog. I'd probably be a freak like Beth if that happened to my child. Someone knows something down there, they're just not person enough to fess up.

MedleyRelay, don't make excuses for Paulus. The reason people lie is because they don't want you to know the truth. If you have nothing to hide, then why lie? Why would Paulus make that statement "No Body, No Crime" even before he knew what the accusations were? Hmm. The sad truth; this case will never be solved. And why would it? For anyone with a conscious out there. Say a prayer for Natalee and her mom this holiday season.

If Paulus was any kind of a "man of Law", he would have made his scum son tell the truth....why are you people so defensive or liars ??? Your irrational feelings and hatred towards Beth are making you side and believe the murdering liars

Excuse me - I have 3 sons 23,21 and 17 - I know how crazy young men can be - and although mine have never been in any trouble - to speak of - they do lie and they do think stupidly and with certain parts of their anatomy some times - it takes a while later in life for them to truly use their brains! and if I want to think well of Paulus - I am aloud to. Every time he spoke on camera and was interviewed I was impressed with him. He seems sincere, honest and very kindly. Not everyone sees people the same way. I find the Twittys very offensive. I believe Jug is the one with anger issues, he is nothing but a bully. He might be the reason Natalee ran away. As for Beth, yes she has lost a daughter, but she very well might be suffering from Maunchiason syndrom - she is truly not a sane woman and has real issues other than her daughter being missing.

"No body, no crime" a statement supposedly made by PVDS, but in what context? Did he make the statement to the boys after the Twitty's hit the island like gang-busters, ranting and raving at the VDS house at three in the morning?
Just maybe, the boys knowing that they left the girl at the beach and did not know that she was missing, got really scared that maybe the Twitty's would try to pin something on them. The boys being to ask questions, like what if she doesn't show up, what if her parents never find her, what if we are accused of crime that we didn't committ?????? these types of questions from three scared young men could very well prompt the statement from a lawyer dad like...."no body, nor crime."

The reason it is an important part of the investigation that Natalee drank a lot the whole time she was there IS NOT to put her down or say that she deserved anything. It is to point out that she most likely was already very intoxicated and to dispute the theory that the boys "drugged her" cause why would they? And her mother made such a big deal about her being a virgin, thus in Beth's mind if Natalee had sex with Joran that it must have been rape, so the points about it maybe not being true that Natalee was a virgin is to dispute that.

It certainly is interesting after all this time the Vanity article finally points out what has been said since the beginning this MB group was out of control with drinking, sex and drugs - I agree this is not pointed out to ruin Natalee's image but to correct the insinuation that the 3 youths must have drugged her or plowed her with 351 rum that nite, in order to take advantage. Sounds like Natalee as well as others were well on their way to oblivion long before these 3 came on the scene that nite. This is a huge deal - if she had been acting the girls gone wild scene all week - what could these 3 be guilty of if they took part too? In my opinion nothing. A girl cannot act like that and give that impression then cry rape at the last minute or afterwards. But of course we dont know what Natalee cried she is not here - only her mother who seems intent on trying to paint Natalee as pure as the driven snow - of course all mom's want to think that way of their daughters but most of the time the image they have is not realistic. Natalee might have been having a tough time living up to what Beth and Jughead wanted - which always has be coming back to her escaping and running away!

I don't know about you. The Aruban Natalee Affair has been swept into the 2008 Presidential campaign powertrain. Aruban is going to get run over and shattered if the island nation is still standing in the harm's way. Ms. Natalee Holloway is an honor sudent and American citizen went missing in Aruban and was known to be accompanied or abducted by three Aruban perverts now running free all over the globe. This unthinkable injustice stirs up the whole American mothers anger and anxiety. The Missisipi Governor better joins the boycott for the sake of his own native State Citizen Natalee. Or he will lose his governorship soon because he says he is too busy like Aruba, and he doesn't care.

Absolutely the focus has changed. Joran is no longer wanted. The target is now the nation of Aruba. Aruba is taken as the scapegoat which represents government corruptions at the worst. In 2006 thru 2008 the American political parties have to put the blames on somebody and get the support and votes. Women voters are the majority and that's the reason why Beth is viewed as the favorite most loving and caring mother in America. Beth will pull in a lot of votes, and that's what matters. American politics of the only superpower on earth is subtle and mysterious. To survuve, Araba has to learn to adapt itself to the American politics.

Good grief! Ano 8:48 - You don't know anything about American politics. This incident will not impact the presidential campaign in the slightest. She went missing,yes; she was with the three young men at one point, yes; anything else is conjecture. Why would any of that have any bearing on who gets elected president in 2008? While I am sorry that Natalee is missing, the presidential candidates will have more important things to discuss - like the war in Iraq and international terrorism.

The war in Iraq is the pain in the butt people in America don't want to touch it but the President. People want some light-hearted stuff, something easy to chew on, Aruba thus becomes the victim of choice. Aruba is more like a big chuck of juicy T-bone steak, saucy and sexy, and it won't bite. There is a big prediction out next United States President will be a women. American people are tired of corrupt male politicians. So they want a change. Who knows, the Joran/Natalee affair may turn out to be a blessing to the United States of America.

How funny, that anyone think that the Holloway case would have any bearing at all on the presidental election. My side hurt from laughing !

I suppose we'll see ANO 8:58 am and
5:42 pm carry posters and chanting "Beth Twitty for President!"

Next we'll see the major doll companies producing a tall, slim, doll with blonde hair the texture of hay and grimmaced face wearing a suit with a pin stating "Beth Twitty, President 2008". Here platform will be "Crush Aruba".

I can name you 100 mothers who would slap some sense into Beth...grieving mom....my ass !

Why does Beth want to help look for Tara.....a PR stunt?????

Shouldn't she be actively looking for her own daughter first.
I don't think Natalee is holding up in any of the TV stations anywhere in the USA and that is the only place has been to.

What about the letter that Paul VDS, Beth and the FBI received that was supposedly sent by Natalee ?

What the heck are you saying - the most loving caring mother in America - the mother from hell would be more appropriate - when has Beth ever shown any tiny minute moment of love, kindness,empathy or anything that resembles warmth - she truly much more closely looks like a relative of Hitler- the majority of people are split on Beth - but most people do not know or care! To even begin to think this case will influence anything down the road is ridiculous especially if Natalee is eventually found and ran away!

John Edwards said the Republican governments are corrupt. Aruba is a mirror to this kind of dreadful corruption, for example the money laundering of the election campaign donations by Tom Delay. The defense lawyers plan to apply the Aruba system of govenment to validate the fund transfer is not "money laundering". However, John Edwards, the trial lawyer says Aruba is a bad apple.
