Greta Investigates 10 Years of Twists & Turns in the Natalee Holloway Case
It has been a full decade now since 18-year-old Natalee Holloway disappeared, and the mystery has captivated the nation ever since.
The Alabama native was on a five-day high school graduation trip to Aruba with more than 100 students and seven chaperones from Mountain Brook High School.
She was last seen getting into a vehicle outside of an Aruba nightclub on May 30, 2005.
Greta Van Susteren, who has covered every twist and turn of the investigation since Natalee went missing, will now examine the mystifying case once again.
Greta returned to the island with Holloway's mother to investigate the bizarre twists and countless lies that have plagued the case from the start.
You'll also learn about how the teen’s suspected killer, Joran van der Sloot, was almost caught in an FBI sting operation, but instead slipped out of Aruba and fled to Peru.
