Possible Confession in the Natalee Holloway Case



...........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................The Al.com's headline on Friday read, "Aruban prosecutor calls Dutch TV report confession". The reporter is saying that prime suspect, Joran van der Sloot, confessed to the reporter on a hidden camera. The report is scheduled to air on Sunday on Holland TV. An American version will be aired by ABC's 20/20 at 8:30 p.m. Monday.
I hope that this can be a break in the case. I hope that the hidden vidoe cannot pose a problem (leading a witness, etc.) although I do not know specifics. I only pray for a break in the case. Like that of Carrie Lawson, this one has also plagued my brain with thoughts of where could this girl be?
Of course, I do not know this family. But as a mother, I felt the pain and terror, the urgency that this family must have felt I reached out when their child and sister did not come home from her graduation trip. I felt lead to reach out to Natalie's mother, Beth, when this ordeal began, with just a note of how my family was praying for her family. I thought it was important for her and her family to feel bathed and lifted in prayer. To feel the presence of God amid all the questions. I still pray. Beth was very kind and agnoliged my letter by writing me back. I think she has such strength. She must. Solely because of Beth this story continues to live on and be a focus in the media, even two years later. I don't blame her. I took her card and tucked into my Bible, to remain so I would remember to pray. I hope that this will reopen the case and finally give closure to this family.
