Natalie Holloway Tragedy; Where Are We?

Fri Oct 13, 2006 8:21 am

North Korea nukes, lecherous politicos with tastes for underage boys; it is obvious why the tragic Natalie Holloway story has fallen out of fashion with the press! Any updates? Is the investigation still going? Results of the investigation? How is Natalies family doing?

Personally this one gets the GAF-o-meter from me.

The chick is ancient history, those who really know aren't talking and the police haven't been able to convince anyone they know what they are doing.

This case will almost certainly never be solved and it's a waste of time for 'mere' mortals talking on a aviation site to ponder otherwise.

It's sad, and no, she didn't deserve any of what happened to her, but honestly, I think she was a wee bit on the stupid side....

The only reason this whole story about her was constantly in the news is because her parents are probably rich as hell. They just had enough money to keep it rolling. Personally, I'm going with TedTAce on this one. People disappear randomly everywhere once in a while. But the way this story was kept in the papers for so long, made it very annoying and irritating. I mean unfortunately Natalee is gone. That's it. Nothing more too it. Trying to make this into a topic as big as 9/11 is stupid.

I don't think it was so much their wealth that kept it going. I wouldn't consider Laci Peterson's family super wealthy and look how long that one was in the news.

I've been asking for years what about the ugly kids that get kidnapped or the ugly women that disappear or killed by their husbands/boyfriends. Sex sells and pretty blond Alabama girls named Natalie go a lot longer in the press than frizzy haired girls named Shaquondra from South Central LA.

It's a sad fact but that's how the world works these days.

Natalie Holloway is still somewhere in Venezuela or Colombia or Equador being kept doped up and pleasing her new master at his whim . . . . or being "loaded out" by him to please others . . . it's a sad story, but it happens . . .

Hell, she may have even been shipped off to some other far foreign land to do the same, not even in this hemisphere any longer.

Apparently some A.Netters are amassing in Birmingham in a few weeks to train and form a second search party wave. Some of the training includes weaponry and building a tolerance for an island where alcoholic beverages is the safest form of consumption.

I'll be very busy at Sak's making sure we do it in style.

So far over it, I have to ask, "Natalee who?"

As crude as this is I think he is correct.........A death of your child is hard enough but not knowing what really happened must be torture for this family.

No body = no way to determine what may have happened. Far too many people make very bad judgements at home or in what they believe to be a safe place like Aruba. Aruba has maybe 1-2 murders a year, probably most from domestic violence, not upon tourists so one could let their guard down figuring that nothing will happen to you. A woman missing or killed and from a low income rural or urban area is stereotypically seen as a victim of domestic/boyfrend violence, drug related, street or gang violence or crime. Usually you either got a murderer or you don't have enough evidence or witnesses to the act (most potential in low income locations witnesses will ignore as may not want to be victim themselves)
You also had a person 18 years old consuming alcohol in a place where the legal age is 18 and from a place (the USA states) where it is 21. Just because someone is 18 and the drinking age is that doesn't mean they are of sufficient experience or judgment as to alcohol use.
The lessons from this loss should be that even if you are 18, that doesn't mean you can drink and get drunk even if is legal. One must show responsibility including having designated non-drinker in a group to try to make sure others in their group are not potential victims of potential criminals, that they don't over drink to the point of causing injury or death. Each person, especially women, shouldn't put themselves at high risk situations like tourist bars and so on too. Yes, that means a lot less fun in on way, but it does show responsibility and wanting a long life.

I concur. The abduction theory is plausible, but not likely.

Add to the above the fact that the place she was last seen was somewhat notorious - when my daughter and her husband honeymooned there two years ago, the proprietor of their resort warned them about giving that bar a wide berth, due to all the drug dealing and pickpocketing that went on inside.

Could have been abduction, rape, murder or a combination of all three. No doubt, very tragic. However, on that island, I believe it's the North side, it's been a couple of years since I was there last, the surf is unbelievable, you could toss a body in there and I'm sure it would just get washed out to sea. It's all rocks and waves crashing into the shore, so even if they did search there, I'm not sure you could ever really get to all of it, unless they had some brave divers!

I don't think he's questioning whether this is in the correct forum as much as questioning whether it's worth the time for a group of aviation fans such as us to be putting the thought into the matter or not.

True, it all may seem non relevant. But, one never knows; by discussing it, one never knows that there is the outside chance someone will remember something that may resolve this.
