Natalee Holloway's Dad on New Lead: 'Things Are Starting to Make Sense'
UPDATE: The Aruban prosecutor's office has dismissed Jurrien de Jong's claims, saying they investigated his account and concluded it "cannot be correct."
Natalee Holloway’s father was on “The Real Story” today, where he discussed the claims of an alleged witness to his daughter’s disappearance.
Jurrien de Jong said that he saw Joran van der Sloot carrying Holloway’s body on the night of her disappearance. He claimed that he didn’t come forward earlier because he had been involved in criminal activity.
De Jong goes on to say that he witnessed Joran van der Sloot, the main suspect in Natalee’s disappearance, carrying Natalee’s body on the night she disappeared. He states, “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.”
Dave Holloway said that he recently went to Aruba with a canine to search for his daughter, but that they weren’t permitted to search “restricted areas.”
Holloway told Gretchen Carlson that he went on Google Earth and pulled up the exact location where the alleged witness claims he saw van der Sloot and Natalee.
“Lo and behold, [the location] was under construction at the time,” Holloway told Carlson.
"Things are starting to make sense now," he said of de Jong's claims.
