The Son Of Vice President Joe Biden Passes Away From Brain Cancer At Age 46

Filed under: Sad SadJoe Biden

What tragic and devastating news.

On Saturday, Beau Biden, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, passed away from brain cancer at the young age of 46.

Beau, an Iraq war veteran and who served as the attorney general for Maryland, leaves behind a wife and two young children.

Joe released the following statement regarding his son's untimely passing:

"It is with broken hearts that Hallie, Hunter, Ashley, Jill and I announce the passing of our husband, brother and son, Beau, after he battled brain cancer with the same integrity, courage and strength he demonstrated every day of his life. The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words. We know that Beau's spirit will live on in all of us—especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter. Beau's life was defined by service to others. As a young lawyer, he worked to establish the rule of law in war-torn Kosovo. A major in the Delaware National Guard, he was an Iraq War veteran and was awarded the Bronze Star. As Delaware's Attorney General, he fought for the powerless and made it his mission to protect children from abuse. More than his professional accomplishments, Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother. His absolute honor made him a role model for our family. Beau embodied my father's saying that a parent knows success when his child turns out better than he did. In the words of the Biden family: Beau Biden was, quite simply, the finest man any of us have ever known."

How heartbreaking. It's clear Beau's family loved him beyond words.

President Barack Obama also added his condolences, saying:

"Beau Biden believed the best of us all. For him, and for his family, we swing our lanterns higher. Michelle and I humbly pray for the good Lord to watch over Beau Biden, and to protect & comfort his family."

Considering Joe already lost his first wife and only daughter in a tragic car accident in 1972, we can't imagine how feels right now.

Our hearts go out to Beau's family and friends during this difficult time.

Natalee Holloway's Father Speaks Out On The Dismissed Eyewitness Claims — And What His OWN Investigation Has Turned Up!

Natalee Holloway Father Interview

It seems so heartbreaking…

It's been 10 years since Natalee Holloway disappeared while she was on a high school graduation trip to Aruba. The whole case has been a decade-long rollercoaster of emotions.

Joran van der Sloot was the last man to have seen Natalee alive and is still the lead suspect in the case — though he was never charged of the crime. Coincidentally, he is in prison serving 28 years for a murder committed five years ago in Peru.

A couple weeks ago though, it appeared that there might be a breakthrough in the case.

Jurrien De Jong came forward and claimed to have seen van der Sloot carrying Natalee's body into a construction site near Marriott's Aruba Surf Club. Unfortunately, the prosecutor has since dismissed De Jong's account since the Marriot at the alleged location says there was no construction taking place.

Natalee's father Dave Holloway has now come forward in an interview with CNN to talk about his conversation with De Jong, what he wants to see done, and how he's never giving up.
