I just saw this at ScaredMonkeys.

Kalpoe Family Denied Texas Equusearch From Searching Around Their House

A great deal of information comes to RWV, most of which, to be honest, I cannot simply pass along and inundate certain individuals I speak...

There will be some updates coming tonight – should be interesting. Still have a few calls and such. A reader sent me this link – he suggested Carl Perkin’s Cadillac – I enjoyed Never Gone Change as well. Didn’t get to the video though – DriveByTruckers  mp3

Are You A Talker Or A Do’er?

June 30, 2005

An interesting thing about how I have been web logging lately, it feels good to be doing something, as opposed to just talking about it. That’s an interesting topic to me and it can be applied to many different fields.

This is funny, check it out for a laugh then...

Joran’s Anger Management Issue

June 30, 2005
By

As first referenced here in an interview with a friend of Joran Van der Sloot – and also stated more plainly near the end of this report, there is no evidence to support claims that Joran Van der Sloot participated in any formal anger management class, or group.

Additional reliable information...

An Open Letter To Aruba

June 30, 2005
By

I have been nothing but objective, supportive and understanding as regards the tiny island of Aruba as it wrestles with a tremendous problem. As is likely the case with many reasonable Americans and citizens of the world, watching what has been happening on the island of Aruba has called for tremendous...

The Mystery Post

June 30, 2005
By

I realize that many people have been discussing some mysterious postings alleged to have some connection to Aruba and recent events. To be frank, I haven’t read much of the material, nor do I anticipate doing so.

However, a reader has apparently done a great deal of research and writing on the...

The Sounds Of Silence

June 29, 2005
By

Heard tonight that some Aruban media outlets are beginning to move on, not completely, but certainly from the kind of coverage the disapearance of Natalee Holloway had been getting.

Also informed that a girlfriend of Joran v d Sloot was questioned for approximately four hours today – haven’t confirmed, or if the...

This from Tom and Red at ScaredMonkeys regarding the letter writing campaign.

a link to a post for MSNBC tonight. They are going to have exclusive with Caren Janssen and Sunny Tillman, new letter writing campaign that is being started in AL.

Be back in about 5 mins.

Janssen: No Body, No Crime

June 29, 2005

This via Hosibokus from Dutch television.

… In yesterday’s interview Paul van der Sloot said that he did not instruct the young suspects not to talk, but explained the judicial procedure to them … Paul van der Sloot told the boys a few days after the disappearance of Natalee (not to worry...

Are RWV and other significant "Natalee" web logs famous? Or infamous?

Michele Malkin seems to have brought up the topic here. I wrote a draft post on this issue two weeks ago and never posted it. I’ll just say a couple of things and, as always, thank Michele for the link....

John 8:32, Shaw And Byron

June 29, 2005
By

I’ve often characterized what I have been up to here as a search for truth. At least in part, perhaps, as I have always unquestioningly admired the following quotation.

John 8:32 "And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

Perhaps. But tonight the statement has, for me, a...

A Change In Mood

June 28, 2005
By

Something happened this evening in Aruba to significantly change the tone of the family of Natalee Holloway. Whatever it was is not generally known, but thought to come from a private meeting with Aruban authorities about which the family isn’t commenting, other than to say they are feeling better as...

Another War

Steel is a good web logging friend with a short but interesting story from another war.

A Two For One Post

June 28, 2005
By

Some may wonder why I am linking to this, briefly discussing Graydon Carter’s obsession with Paris Hilton. Along with having been sent the link, one of the things I haven’t mentioned is, it seems that Joran v d Sloot had the same issue.

A reliable source has assured me Paris occupied a...

Aruba Update 3

June 28, 2005
By

I have much mail to sort and some writing to do – just got home.

Over at Scared Monkeys, frequent commenter Aruba Girl claims to have info that someone saw the Kalpoe brothers on the road at 2 AM the night of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance – presumably driving in an area associated...

Aruba Update 2

June 28, 2005
By

As posted earlier, the news that came my way from Aruba today was confounding. It suggested that the prosecutor has yet to be able to build anything resembl;ing a strong case against any of the boys, though that information cannot be 100% confirmed by me, officially, or unofficially. I can only...

Aruba Update 1

June 28, 2005
By

This is a quick update prior to a brief meeting, after which I hope to have a fuller update posted between 5:30 – 6:00 PM.

Just a day after some were hopeful one piece of this mystery might fall into place as a result of search efforts, news so far today from...

Eyes On Natalee

June 28, 2005
By

Several new on topic posts below.

Update2: Without request, many commenters seem to have taken up the practice of posting an initial or nickname and general location – state, country, etc … and wishing the family their best. If you wish to do so, I’ll maintain this post...

Some Background On Van der Sloot Family Situation

June 27, 2005
By

Reliable, independent sources spoken with today point to what seemed like preferential treatment toward Joran v d Sloot early in the investigation which possibly contributed to difficulties now being encountered in the search and investigation as regards the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

One point made was that a search of the vehicle...
