Dear God, Say It Isn't So: Aruba Police Pursue New Evidence in Holloway Case

This is one of those sad practical jokes that crop up annually. And just when I was beginning to take a shine to Greta. No, not in that fashion, but because she was having Sarah Palin marathons, dummies.
A new witness has come forward in the 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba, and prosecutors said Tuesday they are seeking more evidence against the only remaining suspect.

A woman told Dutch police this month that Joran van der Sloot confessed to her years ago that he was involved in Holloway's disappearance, according to Ann Angela, a spokeswoman for the Aruba Prosecutors' Office.

But the Dutch Caribbean island's chief prosecutor said authorities still lack proof they need to convict Van der Sloot, who has been arrested twice and released for lack of evidence.

"After three years of investigating, it is very, very difficult to find that evidence," prosecutor Hans Mos told The Associated Press. "We have to be realistic."
And being realistic, this probably won't go anywhere. Don't get me wrong, I'd have no problem if that smug van der Sloot punk got what's coming to him, but anyone with their synapses properly firing can see incompetence and corruption rules the day in Aruba.

On the other hand, maybe we could get Megyn Kelly on the case.
