"What you want—as a good person—are sons who are kind and respectful toward women. To do that, you want to raise men to have relationships with women—not to feel that you can just go out and get yourself a stripper and have yourself a piece." - Oprah Winfrey

Search To Continue With Radar, Cadaver Dogs
Two Aruban investigators continue to interview friends of Natalee Holloway this week as teams in Aruba wait for cadaver dogs to arrive on loan from the FBI. Search teams in Aruba are using metal probes to look for Holloway's body near a lighthouse on the island's western edge. Even if that search turns up nothing, investigators hope to stir the sand enough so that cadaver dogs might be able to find the missing Mountain Brook teenager. Aruba's police chief has said new leads, possibly from a friend of suspect Joran Van Der Sloot, are spurring recent activity in Aruba and Alabama. (NBC)

MSNBC reported that investigators are asking Holloway's friends if they recognize new Aruban names, giving them descriptions of Carlos 'N' Charlie's patrons, and having them examine pictures of patrons in an attempt to develop new leads. (Click here to launch video)

Paul Van Der Sloot Sworn In
Paul Van Der Sloot, once held in connection with the disappearance of an Alabama teenager was cleared on of suspicion in the case last November and has now been installed in the capacity of a lawyer on the island. Paul van der Sloot entered the courthouse yesterday to present his application to the “raad van toezict”
(Supervisory Commission) and the members of the Aruban Lawyers Association. The commission, together with the lawyers association reviewed his application and attached documents, concluding that he satisfied the qualifications to be accepted as an active lawyer working on the island of Aruba. (Aruba Today)

He had wanted to be a judge, but that did not quite work out (and I have heard a few reasons why and still don't understand why.) He is now sworn in as a lawyer and working with his son's lawyer in the law firm. - Greta Van Susteren

Remember this is a guy who apparently taught his son how to hide a body and made statements about, well if there is no body, there is no crime. I might agree that at this point they can‘t prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, have to be an idiot to think this father has no involvement in this case. - Wendy Murphy

"I was the guy who had to let them out...."
"I opened the jail door for all three of them. It was nobody else. It was me. And my feeling was that we had lost. And then we didn't lose because we all sat together and said, 'We can figure this out." - Steve Cohen

"All three of those three young men should have been picked up and charged with rape, sexual misconduct, perjury, obstruction of justice, at the least. Instead, they were let free, they were allowed to lawyer themselves up, get their stories straight and we have no answers now. They know what happened to Natalee and they're walking free, enjoying their lives, and Beth and the family are just going through hell." - Defense Attorney John Q. Kelly

Launches Schadevergoeding Case
"It‘s very surprising. I mean, it‘s almost shocking what‘s going on over there in the court system. And it‘s unbelievable that this man, his family, are shameless enough and sort of money-hungry enough to, after what they‘ve put the family through and what they‘ve made a number of people endure, that they‘re seeking compensation for this now." - Defense Attorney John Q. Kelly reacting to reports indicating Paul Van Der Sloot is in the process of suing the Aruban Government for wrongful arrest in the Natalee Holloway Case.
