What's happening with the Aruba Situation?

I heard the Defense lawyer say that his guy didn't even know the young man that they put in jail.

Rita The Voice said that one of the reasons they probably arrested the new suspect was so he could spill the beans on the other three.

Where is the Thread? Did I miss it?

4. Natalie who?
Last I heard, some guy (not one of the original 3 suspects) is in custody...

But like so many others here, to me the Holloway disappearance story is part of an evil plot to distract us from Iraq, Iran, BushCo, etc...

5. Let's see...
Four Marines just died in Iraq while 40+ Iraqi people died today in bombings; 7 Afghan civilians were killed by U.S. troops; we're rattling nuclear sabres at Iran; Human Rights Watch charges Rumsfeld with personally supervising torture of prisoners; we've been told so many lies by the most corrupt adminitration in our history that our heads are spinning faster than Linda Blair on a bad day.

Now ask me if I care about Aruba.

6. They found a buyer for the Van der Valk Hotel
Edited on Sun Apr-16-06 10:39 PM by RGBolen
CURACAO An American group headed by Barney Ivanovic bought the Van der Valk Hotel. Besides the building, Ivanovic, who was born in Yugoslavia in 1959, also took over the exploitation of the hotel. All the personnel (175) will keep their jobs.

Ivanovic is not a total stranger on the island. A few years ago, he and his local company Barniva Curaao Development took over the luxurious apartment complex at Piscadera, the Royal Palm Resort. He confirmed the purchase of the Plaza Hotel last Monday before the Amigoe. He plans to invest a lot in the building and upgrade of the 250-room hotel to a higher level. The new owner said that an American chain will manage the hotel, but he couldnt tell which chain yet, due to the final completion. The transaction and upgrading, including the restoration of the Waterfort-archs will cost approximately 45 million dollars. About 50 percent of this is for the purchase and the rest is for the restoration. One of the financers is the Girobank. In connection with the purchase, Ivanovic and his American partners Frank Buscemi from New York and Layne Rachowicz from Chicago established the NV Fort Shore.

8. Reality has been hijacked--everything is a soap opera.
What a shame.
