Aruba Police Investigate Hidden Camera Evidence in Holloway Case

ORANJESTAD, ARUBA - Aruban prosecutors say authorities are investigating new information provided by a Dutch crime reporter in the Natalee Holloway case.  Holloway's father, a graduate of Westside High School in Jonesboro, now lives in Meridian, Mississippi.  The teenager has several other family members in Craighead County, as well as a grandmother in Pine Bluff and an aunt in El Dorado.

The prosecutor's office in Aruba said in a statement today that information from reporter Robert R. de Vries may help considerably in resolving what happened to the American.  Holloway vanished during a May 2005 school vacation to the Dutch Caribbean island. 

The prosecutor's statement did not specify the new material, but said it may shed new light on how Holloway died and the method by which her body disappeared.

An attorney for Joran van der Sloot, a Dutch man who was a suspect in the case, said it was irresponsible for prosecutors to make the announcment without describing their evidence.

De Vries's Web site said the information will be revealed in a Dutch television program Sunday.  It said the reporter traveled to Aruba last week to inform authorities of his findings.
