Last night it was being reported that Beth Holloway was arrested in Peru. Half of that report is true — the part about her being in Peru. Holloway travelled to Peru after watching the recent interview Van Der Sloot did on Dutch TV, which was then sold to NBC. She was also accompanied by a Dutch TV crew. Obviously, she had permission to enter the facility in Peru — you don’t just sneak into a prison. Beth was infuriated by comments made by Van Der Sloot in his recent interview. She confronted Van Der Sloot in his cell and spoke to him for several minutes, demanding answers as to what happened to her daughter. Then when prison officials realized this was all being filmed, they asked her and the crew to leave. I wonder who is going to buy this tape and how much will they pay? I haven’t agreed with everything Beth Holloway has done, and people are criticizing her for what she did –confronting Joran. I’ve never lost a child, but I would probably have done the same thing. I will be discussing this on my radio show Sunday night at 8:00 p.m.

Below are two links to news stories reporting on the happenings in the Drew Peterson saga. As you know I have been subpoenaed to testify. I won’t say too much now untill after I testify, but read the links below and weigh in. I hate to be a pawn in the defense’s game, but I will say this — I stand by my story.

Anita Van Der Sloot despises the American media so she chose to speak out to a Dutch newspaper — De Telegraff — and what she said may shock you.
She now claims her son, Joran Van Der Sloot, the main suspect in the killing of Stephany Flores in Peru last
month, and in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway, suffers from mental
problems. “My son is sick in his head,” De Telegraaf quoted Anita Van Der Sloot as saying in her first public comment since her son’s latest arrest. She also claims that days before he left Aruba for Peru, Joran agreed to check himself into a facility for mental illness at his mothers urging.
Anita is still in Aruba where I have just returned from, and that is where the interview was conducted. Anita told the paper her son had abruptly disappeared in mid-May two days before he was due to travel to the Netherlands to stay at a mental institution. He left a note saying he was going to Peru. So why didn’t she contact the authorities??
Van Der Sloot had been traveling on money he made from media interviews the world but returned to Aruba in April after his father Paul died of a heart attack while playing tennis. Van Der Sloot confessed to, then later retracted, involvement in Holloway’s disappearance several times publicly and privately — each time he was paid for his story.He told me in Thailand in 2008 that he had sold Natalee into a sex slave ring for $10,000 to a man he met at the casino. He has now told his jailers in Peru he is ready to tell the truth in the Holloway case — but only with Aruba authorities — and I’m sure his fee will be some sort of deal.
Anita claims she will not be going to Peru, and she is still in denial over her son’s involvement in the Holloway case. In the Telegraaf interview, Anita told the paper she does not believe Joran killed Holloway. But, she said Joran’s mental health had deteriorated steadily from the time of the Holloway disappearance. She attributed his decline in part to intense media scrutiny — not to the fact that he actually killed her. “But if he killed Stephany, he’ll have to pay the price. I won’t visit him in his cell, I cannot embrace him,” she was quoted saying. She told the paper he had called her several days before Flores’ death. “He said he was being followed. He had been arrested together with a girl and robbed. He was not making sense.”

Joran Van Der Sloot told investigators during an interrogation for the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores, that he knows the location of Natalee Holloway’s body, but he would neither identify the location nor say what happened to her the night of her disappearance. Miguel Canilla, head of the homicide division of the Peruvian National Police investigative unit said, “He says he knew the location of the American citizen but that he was going to explain everything to Aruban police.” Ok, well of course he knows where her body is because he killed her and disposed of her body. Joran is a control freak, and he has control in one last area of everyone’s life — and that is — what happened to Natalee and where her body is. I guarantee he will use this to his advantage to try to bargain a lighter sentence. I hope that deal is contingent upon them actually locating her remains first.
I hate how this has turned into theatrics — a reality show. I talk to Dave Holloway everyday — and it breaks my heart to see what a spectacle this has been…thanks to Van Der Sloot.

We all know by now, that in the midst of a sting operation, orchestrated by the FBI — with Joran Van Der Sloot, Beth Holloway and her Attorney John Q. Kelly in the starring roles, something went terribly wrong. No one was expecting, in the middle of all this, that another young woman would be murdered by the hands of Van Der Sloot.
Now the finger-pointing has started.
Van Der Sloot allegedly contacted Kelly via email, sometime in early April. Kelly travelled to Aruba around Easter to meet with Van Der Sloot, who had recently returned to the island. Remember, Van Der Sloot’s father died in Aruba on February 11th, so I’m sure he was there to see how he could capitalize on that opportunity. A harsh statement, but I say this because when I was with him in Thailand in 2008 for two weeks, Van Der Sloot had attempted to sell his father out by trying to sell audio recordings between him and his dad, allegedly discussing Natalee’s death. The tapes were very incriminating to Paul, but we could never verify their authenticity. He wanted….$25,000, sound familiar???
Back to this case…
The plan was for Kelly to tape Van der Sloot extorting money. Kelly was with 10-12 FBI agents in Aruba, and they wired the car and hotel room where Kelly was meeting with Van der Sloot. Van Der Sloot was given $10,000 cash — he counted it twice on tape, which is the extortion count, and was wired $15,000 (to a Dutch account), which is the wire fraud count. All this caught on tape. Kelly spent several hours being taped with Van Der Sloot. The FBI has the entire tape. The Aruban authorities now claim they do not have the tape.
Once the crime was committed, the FBI planned to make arrangements to arrest Van Der Sloot. That obviously never happened. Three days after Van Der Sloot was caught on tape committing the crimes, he boarded a flight from Aruba to Colombia, and on to Peru. The FBI was allegedly warned that Van Der Sloot was leaving the country, but they did not act.
This was not Van Der Sloot’s first time at the rodeo so to speak.
According to the FBI, Van der Sloot was not arrested in Aruba when he accepted the $25,000 because the case “was not sufficiently developed to bring charges prior to the time Van Der Sloot left Aruba.”
It wasn’t until after the May 30th murder of Stephany Flores in Peru, that the U.S. Attorney in Alabama unsealed an Amended Criminal Complaint charging Van Der Sloot with extortion and wire fraud. So what changed?? How come all of a sudden they could charge him, when they claim they didn’t have enough to arrest him prior to Stephany’s murder?? What is not known is what was Amended or when the Original Criminal Complaint was filed. What is known is there are a lot of excuses as to why Van Der Sloot wasn’t arrested, or at least held by authorities. Hindsight is 20/20.
More from Abruba later today.

Ok, so I guess he was expecting a nice interrogation, over tea perhaps.
Where did the money come from for the sting operation???? We know it was through Beth Holloway Twitty, but who supplied the blood money??? People are speculating as to where it came from. And I think it’s important for people who are commenting on this case in the media to fully disclose their involvement, financial or otherwise.
Why are we not seeing the video of Joran exiting to get coffee and return with it, as he alleges. He should be in the same clothes he was in when we first see him entering the room with Stephanie before the murder. He came in with coffee, she was allegedly on his computer and he goes nuts. But where is this video of him leaving and returning…we’ve seen everything else??

That’s their slogan here. It’s on the license plates. This has been the craziest day. This story is changing by the second. Trust me when I tell you — it is about to get crazier. There are alot of HUGE breakthroughs coming in this case. The finger-pointing is beginning in the extortion case. The Aruban authorities are now claiming they notified American authorities that Van Der Sloot was leaving. Whatever the case, Van Der Sloot dodged authorities, slipped out of Aruba with $25,000, and murdered Stephany Flores in Peru. He is also being questioned about the disappearance of two other girls from a casino in Bogata, Columbia. Authorities have more than egg on their face — they have blood on their hands. How could he just “slip” out of Aruba undetected with a large amount of cash? This is not the first time Joran Van Der Sloot has extorted money from people to reveal what happened to Natalee. I have first-hand knowledge of that… Stay tuned.

I have just learned that Joran Van Der Sloot is now the suspect in the disappearance of two Colombian women. Two girls disappeared from a casino in Colombia.
When Joran left Aruba on May 10th, with the $15,000 dollars in extortion money, he flew to Columbia for two days prior to traveling to Peru. Officials in Colombia are so convinced he is involved in the disappearance of these two young women, they have boarded a plane to Peru to question Van der Sloot.
Stand by developing.

Dave Holloway is on his way to Aruba. He will be meeting with his attorney, prosecutors and investigators. I will keep you posted.

He allegedly confessed to the murder of Stephany Florez Ramirez in Peru — and now I’m hearing he also may have confessed to what he did to Natalee. I am in Aruba and working this angle.
Van Der Sloot’s shocking confession allegedly came late last night when he admitted that he grabbed Stephany Flores Ramirez by the neck when she began reading articles about him on the Internet.
“I did not want to do it. The girl intruded into my private life,” he told investigators . “She had no right.” ”I confronted her.” He said, “She was frightened, we argued and she wanted to get away. I grabbed her by the neck and I hit her.” I am getting reports that Joran Van der Sloot will re-enact how he commited the crime.
