Jurrien de Jong has come out with info regarding the case, saying that he actually saw the main suspect in the case, Joran van der Sloot — who was never charged in her disappearance — carrying her body. De Jong told Inside Edition:
"I saw that Joran was chasing Natalee into a small building under construction. In about five minutes he came out with Natalee in his arms, and slammed the body of Natalee on the floor, and then he made an opening in a crawl space…I knew she was dead."
De Jong reportedly didn't come forward before because he said that he was involved in illegal activities at the time. It wasn't until he saw a television report which showed Van der Sloot tell an undercover investigator that Natalee Holloway was buried at sea — something that De Jong thinks is a lie.
With this news, Natalee's father, Dave Holloway, has flown to Aruba to look into these claims with an private investigator as well as a cadaver dog hoping to find new evidence if nothing else.
Van der Sloot, never being charged of the crime, has had a couple differing stories regarding Natalee's death. In the past he claims to have left a drunken Holloway alone on a beach, but the recent hidden camera confession which De Jong saw, rebuts his earlier claims.
Last December, Natalee's mother, Beth Holloway, did an interview with Oprah (below) and told her that Van der Sloot tried to extort $250,000 from her by attempting to sell Beth the location of Natalee's remains. Shortly after this, there was supposed to be an FBI sting to catch Joran, but he was able to escape the country.
Not long after fleeing, he was accused and charged with the murder of another woman, Stephany Flores. He is currently serving a 28-year sentence, after which he will be extradited to the U.S. to faced with charges of defrauding Beth Holloway.
Eric Olthof, the current prosecutor in Aruba told Inside Edition that he will look into the De Jong's claims but the investigation could take up to a couple months.
Regardless of if Joran really is the man in question, we really hope that Dave Holloway finds evidence to help bring him closure and prosecute the people responsible for this heinous crime!
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
