Wilton saidIt brings back into question how Aruba handled the Holloway case. There was criticism of Aruba at the time about incompetence & disinterest during the investigation, as well as favoritism & leniency, because Joran's father was a judge. Indeed, there was even suspicion that the father knew the truth, or at least his son's version of Holloway's death, and helped with a cover-up.
Now Aruba must not only deal again with the issue of whether it let a killer go free, but also whether that has led to the murder of a second young woman. It might be a good thing if the Dutch government steps in and does a thorough and impartial investigation of the people & events surrounding the Holloway case, to keep this sort of thing from reoccurring.
Yeah, but it makes it more difficult (a murder charge) because the body wasn't found.
Correct, a murder charge in Aruba may be impossible now, not only because of the lack of a body, but also due to loss of forensic evidence, even if a body is subsequently found. The best hope now might be the evidence of eyewitnesses not known about before, assuming Dutch law permits such testimony to be used in a murder case without a body.
What I was referring to is how the original case was handled by the local authorities. Was improper influence used, was the investigation mishandled, did police miss or ignore important leads?
