This comes from the Broward-Palm Beach New Times blog “The Juice“:
A Miami-based flight attendant for American Airlines tells The Juice that a cadaver dog was aboard a Miami-to-Aruba flight. The officer with the dog told the flight attendant that the dog was going to search for the remains of Holloway.
“They think they’ve found where Natalee Holloway’s remains are, and they’re taking the dog down to confirm that,” said the flight attendant, who lives in Fort Lauderdale. “They’re not telling anybody because Aruba is trying to keep this quiet.”
If this is true, it would obviously be the biggest break yet in this most high-profile of international cold cases. Who knows? It might even send Joran van der Sloot back to jail for what, the 15th time? “The Juice” is waiting for further details. They’ll also be highlighted here when and if they become available. If you’ve been in a coma since 2004 and have just awakened and are catching up on news, read more background on the 2005 disappearance of this pretty Alabama teen here.
UPDATE – RadarOnline.com has picked up this story, though they make it clear that their source is the New Times, since the post is basically a re-write of “The Juice’s” blog entry.
UPDATE 2 – Aruba’s Police Commissioner Strantan has told CNN that the news of a body being discovered in connection with Natalee Holloway’s disappearance is false. It may be that the dog is just going to do a typical cadaver search.
Extreme skepticism always pays in this case.
