Suspect in Natalee Holloway Case Released from Detention
A man arrested in the disappearance of an American teenager on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba was released from custody Tuesday, a court official said. The release of the suspect, identified only as "Guido W." because of Dutch privacy laws, means he will not be transferred to Aruba, said the court official, Martine de Bruijn.
His lawyer, Gerard Sprong, told Dutch television there was not enough evidence to hold his client. A spokesman for the Dutch national prosecutor's office declined to comment, saying the case was in the hands of the Aruban public prosecutor. The suspect was arrested last Wednesday in the town of Utrecht. He was a croupier at the casino in the Holiday Inn hotel where American Natalee Holloway was staying when she disappeared a year ago during a high school graduation trip to Aruba.
He was a worker at the local casino gambling hotel where Natalee Holloway stayed.
