2010 - November 16 - AUTHORITIES IN THE HAGUE TESTING BONE THAT MIGHT
BE LINKED TO HOLLOWAY
Spokeswoman for Prosecutors
"Tourists staying at the Phoenix Hotel discovered the bone on the beach
and took it to the front desk, where a hotel employee alerted the police."
De Telegraaf (Dutch Daily newspaper)
"The bone was found last Friday and is now being analyzed by forensic experts.
The jawbone was found near the Phoenix hotel, one location that has been
mentioned by Joran Van der Sloot."
"The bone is damaged but would still be usable for DNA analysis or a comparison
with dental records,"
THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS
Inge Oevering (Spokeswoman, National Forensic Institute)
The prosecutor's office of Aruba sent us some bone material.
The material will be analyzed to determine whether it is animal or human.
If it is human, authorities will attempt to create a DNA profile. The process
will depend on the condition of the material, but the process normally takes
about a week.
The forensic institute's findings will be sent back to the prosecutor's office, who
will decide whether to make the results public."
Oevering did not provide a description of the material.
