Peter R. de Vries broadcast on Natalee Holloway case
I just saw the broadcast of Peter R. de Vries where Joran van der Sloot talks about the night that Natalee Holloway disappeared. Using a hidden camera Joran has talked freely about the night that Natalee Holloway disappeared. He is confessing this towards a person he met in The Netherlands that has gained the trust of Joran.
In short: Joran has met Natalee at the Excelsior casino in the HI hotel. Afterwards they went to Carlos 'n Charlies. Joran went away together with Natalee with the car of the brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. The brothers left Joran and Natalee at a beach near the Marriott. There they made love and Joran tells that all of a sudden Natalee starts shaking heavily and dies. According to Joran she drank a lot of alcohol and might have used coke as well. Not knowing what to do he has called a friend, Daury. This friend offered to help Joran make the body disappear. According to Joran, Daury has taken the body of Natalee on his boat with the help of Natalee. Joran went home while Daury went out to sea and disposed of the body out in the ocean. Joran has said that he thought that Natalee was dead but was not entirely sure about it. She might have been unconscious or in a coma.
At the end of the show, Peter has shown the first reaction of Natalee's mother. She was, ofcourse, intensely shocked by the confessions of Joran.
The program has probably given a lot of answers but still leaves questions unanswered as well. The friend of Joran, Daury, has not been tracked down. This is left to the police by Peter R. de Vries because technically, this may be the person that has actually disposed of her body and may have even killed her since he wasn't sure if Natalee was actually dead or not. Joran claims to have walked home from the beach, while earlier he declared that he was brought home by one of the Kalpoe brothers.
On me, Joran left the impression of a coldhearted person, who is only concerned with himself and not with the fate of Natalee. He also gives the impression of being very shrewd and very aware of the way the Aruban Justice system works. His father was a judge in training there so obviously he knows the system.
