What Finally Allowed Beth Holloway To Accept Daughter Natalee's Death (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Exactly five years to the day that Beth Holloway's daughter Natalee disappeared in Aruba on a class trip, another young woman was murdered by the prime suspect in Natalee's case. Joran van der Sloot confessed to killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in a Peru hotel room, a murder with eerily similar circumstances to Natalee's death. Even though Natalee's case remains unsolved, Beth says that Flores' death has helped her accept her daughter's own fate. "When I saw the ferocity of how he murdered Stephany, it really kind all of brought it full-circle to me then as to what happened to Natalee," Beth tells Oprah in an interview from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?". "That really marked my journey as far as beginning to accept -- not get the closure, but to understand -- that I now need to begin to find peace and joy, and to move on." For years, Beth was unable to move on and found herself lost in the "what ifs" and "what could have beens" of Natalee's life. Today, however, Beth says that sh ...

TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS MYSTERY: Beth Holloway – still has not given up hope about her daughter Natalee
Fox News - over 3 years
I wish I could answer this one.  My reporting is incomplete.  I want to get to the bottom of this.  I have traveled from Aruba to Thailand to Peru to try to get the answers. In the meantime, here is an article I just read:   Even when Beth Holloway realized her daughter Natalee was dead, she didn’t give up hope.   Beth’s search for answers about Natalee’s disappearance during a school trip to Aruba in 2005 captivated the world. This afternoon, Beth spoke about that journey and her new mission at Gingerbread House’s yearly fundraising luncheon.   “There are phases of hope that are there for all of us to seize,” Holloway said.   Her first phase of hope lasted four days, until she realized that Natalee never returned to her hotel the night before the school group’s departure from Aruba.   While praying beside a deserted road on the island, Beth Holloway understood that her daughter “was with God.”   At that moment, she said, she entered the second phase of hope ...

'Van der Sloot may face Holloway murder charges in US'
Dutch News - almost 5 years
Convicted murder Joran van der Sloot may face charges in connection with the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway if he is sent to the US, the Huffington Post reported on Thursday. A Peruvian court will soon decide whether to allow Van der Sloot to be extradited to the United States on charges of extortion in the Holloway case. But international defence expert Michael Griffith told the website: 'With all the bad guys running around... do you really think the US is going to go after every guy who tries to extort money from a US citizen? Absolutely not. The US wants to get hold of him and charge him with Holloway's murder.' Van der Sloot was indicted by a US court in June 2010, for soliciting money from Beth Holloway in exchange for information about her daughter, who disappeared on a trip to Aruba in 2005. Van der Sloot, the last person to be seen with the girl, has twice been arrested in connection with the disappearance.

  • 2010
    Age 49
    On June 8, 2010, the Natalee Holloway Resource Center opened at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment to aid families of missing persons.
    More Details Hide Details
    In a September 2010 interview from the prison, Van der Sloot admitted to extorting Holloway, stating: "I wanted to get back at Natalee's family — her parents have been making my life tough for five years."
    More Details Hide Details On September 11, Holloway traveled to Peru with Peter R. De Vries and his Dutch television crew to visit the prison. According to Van der Sloot's attorney Maximo Alonso Altez Navarro, his client was taken "practically by force" to a meeting with Holloway that took "less than one minute." Altez Navarro said that when Holloway asked questions about the disappearance of her daughter, Van der Sloot responded by saying that he could not speak to her without his lawyer present and handing her his lawyer's business card. Altez Navarro claimed that Holloway was "snuck" into the prison without being identified by the Dutch media crew who she was with. A prison spokesperson stated that Holloway's name was not found in the visitor registry. Colonel Abel Gamarra of the Peruvian National Police stated that no arrests had been made. Holloway's attorney John Q. Kelly commented, "I know she didn't tell me ahead of time because I would have asked her to exercise a little more caution." While in Peru, Holloway spoke with Flores's brother Enrique on camera. On September 17, Holloway and the group left the country for Panama and arrived in Aruba on the same day. Holloway spent a few days in Aruba working with De Vries on a documentary about her missing daughter to be run on Dutch television, reportedly with the cooperation of prosecutors who had been investigating Van der Sloot. The video premiered in November 2010 on SBS6 in the Netherlands and as a special episode of 48 Hours on CBS in the United States, resulting in the suspension of Miguel Castro Castro prison warden Alex Samamé Peña.
    Around March 29, 2010, Joran van der Sloot contacted Holloway's attorney John Q. Kelly with an offer to reveal the location of her daughter's body and the circumstances surrounding her death for an advance of US$25,000 against a total of $250,000.
    More Details Hide Details Kelly said that he secretly went to Aruba in April to meet with Van der Sloot, who was desperate for money, and gave him $100. Kelly notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation to set up a sting operation with the Aruban authorities. On May 10, Van der Sloot accepted the amount of $15,000 by wire transfer from Birmingham to his account in the Netherlands, following a cash payment of $10,000 that was videotaped by undercover investigators in Aruba. In exchange, Van der Sloot told Kelly that his father buried Natalee's remains in the foundation of a house. Authorities determined that the information that he in return provided was false, because the house had not yet been built at the time of Natalee's disappearance. Van der Sloot later e-mailed Kelly that he lied about the house. Holloway was shocked that the FBI did not promptly file extortion charges against Van der Sloot, allowing him to leave freely with the money to Bogotá, Colombia, on his way to Lima, Peru. The FBI and the Office of the U.S. Attorney in Birmingham later claimed in a joint statement that they were working as quickly as possible and that the Lima murder was in no way the result of them allowing Van der Sloot to flee Aruba with the extorted money.
  • 2009
    Age 48
    On April 19, 2009, Lifetime aired Natalee Holloway, starring Tracy Pollan as Beth Holloway-Twitty, Grant Show as George "Jug" Twitty, Amy Gumenick as Natalee Holloway and Jacques Strydom as Joran van der Sloot.
    More Details Hide Details The film does not solve the case, but stages re-creations of various scenarios, based on the testimony of key players and suspects. The broadcast of the film attracted 3.2 million viewers, garnering the highest television ratings in the network's history at the time. Although it set ratings records for Lifetime, the movie was not received well by critic Alec Harvey of The Birmingham News. Harvey called the movie "sloppy and uneven, a forgettable look at the tragedy that consumed the nation's attention for months". However, Jake Meaney of PopMatters found the film to be surprisingly "calm and levelheaded", and praised Tracy Pollan's portrayal of Holloway. Holloway said that she was honored by Pollan's portrayal and that there "could not have been a better choice."

    In October 2007, Holloway said that she was dating John Bennett Ramsey, the father of JonBenét Ramsey, whom she met at a fundraiser following the death of his wife to ovarian cancer.
    More Details Hide Details However, Ramsey downplayed their relationship, stating that they "developed a friendship of respect and admiration" out of common interests related to their children. Holloway resides in Birmingham, Alabama with her son Matthew.
  • 2005
    Age 44
    Written under the name "Beth Holloway" following her divorce from Jug Twitty, the book retells events leading up to the night Natalee Holloway disappeared in 2005, and the ensuing investigation during the aftermath.
    More Details Hide Details It then focuses on the obstacles faced in Aruba by the Holloway and Twitty families in their search for Natalee. Holloway recounts her anger at what she felt was a lack of cooperation from local officials such as the Aruban police, including the failure to obtain a warrant to search the home of Van der Sloot. The book was soon on The New York Times best seller list. In October 2008, the Lifetime Movie Network announced plans to create a television film based on the book. Jarett Wieselman of the New York Post questioned whether it was too soon for such a film to be made. Holloway said that she was not sure at first that she could take this step, but felt that it was "the right thing to do" after meeting the creative staff in Los Angeles.
    On July 8, 2005, and after Satish Kalpoe's attorney threatened legal action over Holloway's allegations, which he described as "prejudicial, inflammatory, libelous, and totally outrageous", Holloway read a statement that said her remarks were fueled by "despair and frustration" and that she "apologize to the Aruban people and to the Aruban authorities if I or my family offended you in any way".
    More Details Hide Details Holloway was criticized for her focus on Joran van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers, to the exclusion of any other theory as to what happened to Natalee. According to the lawsuit filed by the Kalpoe brothers, she has (on various television programs) repeatedly accused them, and Joran van der Sloot, of "sexual assault" and "gang rape" of her daughter. Holloway was also criticized for making what have been deemed to be inconsistent and contradictory statements (for example, as to whether there were operating security cameras at the Holiday Inn). According to Julia Renfro, U.S.-born editor of the Aruban tourist-oriented newspaper, Aruba Today, who befriended Holloway in the early days of the investigation, Holloway pandered to tabloid television and her "behavior was odd from the get-go". Renfro noted that "Holloway immediately concluded that her daughter had been kidnapped and made no effort to check hospitals or police", adding that within a couple of days, after fixing responsibility on Joran van der Sloot, Holloway "was telling TV interviewers that she knew her daughter had been gang-raped and murdered".
    On July 5, 2005, following the initial release of the Kalpoes, Holloway alleged, "Two suspects were released yesterday who were involved in a violent crime against my daughter", and referred to the Kalpoes as "criminals".
    More Details Hide Details A demonstration involving about two hundred Arubans took place that evening outside the courthouse in Oranjestad in anger over Holloway's remarks, with signs reading "Innocent until proven guilty" and "Respect our Dutch laws or go home".
    In May 2005, Holloway's daughter Natalee was in Aruba on a graduation trip with fellow students from Mountain Brook High School.
    More Details Hide Details Natalee was scheduled to fly home later on May 30, but failed to appear for her flight. She was last seen by her classmates outside Carlos'n Charlie's, a Caribbean chain restaurant and nightclub in Oranjestad, in a car with locals Joran van der Sloot and brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. Immediately following Natalee's missed flight, Jug and Beth Twitty traveled to Aruba with friends by private jet. Within four hours of landing in Aruba, the Twittys presented the Aruba Police Force with the name and address of Van der Sloot as the person with whom Natalee left the nightclub. Holloway stated that Van der Sloot's full name was given to her by the night manager at the Holiday Inn, who supposedly recognized him on a videotape. The Twittys and their friends, with two Aruban policemen, went to the Van der Sloot home looking for Natalee. Van der Sloot initially denied knowing Natalee's name, but he then told the following story, with which Deepak Kalpoe, who was present, agreed: Van der Sloot related that they drove Natalee to the California Lighthouse area of Arashi Beach because she wanted to see sharks, before dropping her off at her hotel around 2:00 a.m.

    In 2000, Holloway married George "Jug" Twitty, a prominent Alabama businessman, and moved with her children to Mountain Brook, Alabama. Jug Twitty began divorce proceedings on December 29, 2006, stating the two have "such a complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together."
