2010 - November 16 -  AUTHORITIES IN THE HAGUE TESTING BONE THAT MIGHT
                                   BE LINKED TO HOLLOWAY

ARUBA
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.

Peter Blanken (Chief Prosecutor, Aruba)
"A local forensic expert believes the bone is very likely human.
My office has sent the bone to the Netherlands for further analysis.
Authorities will use a DNA profile from Holloway’s parents to determine
whether there is a match, and the results may come as early as tomorrow."

2010 -November 23 - The Aruban authorities have announced that the jawbone does NOT
                                belong to Natalee Holloway. The jawbone had a wisdom tooth still
                                attached. In the past, Natalee Holloway had her wisdom teeth
                                removed.

                                That begs the question - who does the jawbone belong to?

"There are 200 archaeological sites scattered throughout the island with pottery shards
and human bones dating back hundreds of years. One such site is close to the hotel
where the jaw bone was found. The site is an old Indian village inhabited by the Caquetio
or Ceramic People from A.D. 900 to 1500. As their name suggests, ceramic pottery played
a large role in their lives. They would burn their dead and put the bones in large ceramic urns.
The museum has a burial urn on display with human bones - including a jaw fragment with teeth intact.

Aruba's Prosecutors office did not give an explanation for where the jaw bone might have
come from, but officials do say it was extremely weathered and held a very small amount
of DNA. Aruba's Solicitor General Taco Stein would not comment on whether the bone is
old enough to have come from one of these archaeological sites. Stein says investigators
will keep the bone in evidence and compare it to other missing persons."
