    I'm a Buc's fan as well. I'm still remembering my superbowl party I had when the Bucs beat the Raiders. Toooo long ago! I was going to go to the superbowl if the Jets made it since most of my good friends live down in florida and are Jets fans. I absolutely love the Raymond James stadium.

    Anyway, welcome!

    DannyO - Yeah I think it's some kind of live rock / coral formation. It definately looks strange though. Things that make you go hmmmmmm.

    For all the thousands of people who have snorkeled near the shipwreck over the last 5 years, and no one saw a skeleton that was supposedly there? Not to mention the number of fish such a thing would have attracted at the beginning. Very hard to believe...

    Police dive for ‘skeleton’
    22 Maart, 2010, 09:29 (GMT -04:00) http://www.amigoe.com/artman/publish/artikel_70246.php

    ORANJESTAD — This weekend, the Public Prosecution (OM) announced that the Police Corps Aruba (KPA) is going to dive to the location where the mortal remains of Natalee Holloway are possibly lying.

    The OM does not wish to say exactly where and when the diving will take place. The diving operation is being organized with regard to an underwater picture that was published in the American press last week. The picture was taken near the Fisherman’s Hut, the location where the American teenager was seen last in 2005. The picture apparently shows mortal remains. The American couple, who had taken the picture, therefore thinks it could be Natalee Holloway.

    Justice on Aruba received the picture from the FBI last Saturday. The OM is particularly interested in the skull-like shape seen in the picture. In a reaction, spokesperson Ann Angela of the OM stated that ‘unfortunately the people who had taken the picture could not indicate the exact location’. Nevertheless, someone on Aruba recognizes the location, says Angela. She could not reveal the name of the person. According to Angela, the reason that the OM does not wish to disclose the date and the location has to do with amongst others, safeguarding the evidence. By not being communicative, Justice wants to avoid attracting public to the location of the possible mortal remains. If the diving team indeed discovers mortal remains, these will be recovered immediately, says the OM. The remains will then be forwarded to the National Forensic Institute in the Netherlands for examination.

    heck the latest on abcnews.com - this is what the forensics experts had to say:

    "I do not believe that these photos represent a body. I think it's a rock formation that certainly does present upon initial perception a suggestion of a human skeletal remains, but I do not believe that it is," Dr. Cyril Wecht said.
    After looking at the photograph that first appeared in the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era newspaper, Wecht, one of the country's leading forensic pathologists, said the image doesn't match what a skeleton should look like.



    "If you look at what would have to be the head you see that it does not really fit. It it's a front view, then what would be orbital sockets are far too low. If it's a rear view, then that does not fit because there's a lower portion that would not fit in with the neck," Wecht said.

    Wecht said it's not likely that the skeleton of the missing teen could remain intact for that long.


    "The whole idea of a skeletal remains being in the water for a period of a couple of months shy of five years is just untenable," Wecht said.

    As a diver, I would also ask everyone to consider the fact that there have been a number of storms in the past few years which would have disrupted anything laying on the bottom. Even though wave action on the ocean's bottom is not as severe as the surface, it does impact nonetheless. Think of pieces of coral and seaweed washing up after storms. As the doctor said, "it's not likely that the skeleton ...could remain intact for that long."

    Diving operation does not lead to Holloway’s ‘skeleton’
    24 Maart, 2010, 08:24 (GMT -04:00)
    http://www.amigoe.com/artman/publish/artikel_70345.php

    ORANJESTAD — Last Sunday, the police conducted a diving operation regarding the ‘skeleton’ of the missing American teenager Natalee Holloway, as a result of an underwater picture taken by an American couple on Aruba last year. However, the Public Prosecution (OM) announced that the divers could not find the exact location.

    “The police are currently working on the reconstruction of the location. We are now trying to find the exact location together with the company that had dove with the couple”, says OM-spokesperson Ann Angela. The American couple cannot indicate the exact location where the picture had been taken. “They have difficulty in recalling the location”, says Angela. The couple had taken the pictures during a vacation in October last year. However, later on they discovered one of the pictures showed a resemblance of a skeleton. They had forwarded the picture to the FBI and sounded the alarm when a response remained forthcoming. The Aruban investigation team only received the picture last Saturday and started a new search operation. Justice assumes the picture is ‘real’, says Angela.

    However, forensic expert Josh Maat of the Leids University Museum doubts the authenticity of the skeleton. In an interview with the World Broadcast, he states, “Let’s take into account that this could have a disappointing outcome. An awful lot of people have died and sunk to the sea bottom.” In addition, it will also be difficult to identify the mortal remains, says Maat. DNA perishes quickly in the sea and the tropical water furthers the process of decomposition.
