Casino Worker Arrested in Natalee Holloway Case
A Dutch national detained on suspicion of participating in the kidnapping and killing of Natalee Holloway in Aruba is fighting a request to bring him to the island, his attorney's office said. Gerard Spong said his client, a croupier at the casino in the hotel where Holloway was staying, was suspected of "assisting in the murder" of the Alabama high school senior.
Holloway was 18 when she disappeared in May 2005 during a graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba with classmates. She was last seen leaving a bar with three young men on May 30. Dutch marines, the Aruban Coast Guard, the FBI and hundreds of volunteers have searched the island and coastal areas of Aruba for Holloway, to no avail.
