At this hour, ABC News is reporting one of the three suspects last taken into custody has admitted to authorities, she was murdered.
ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) – One of three young men who took an Alabama high school student to the beach during her class trip to Aruba confessed he killed her, police say.
Deputy Police Commissioner Gerold Dompig told The Associated Press that the man was leading police late Friday to the scene of the crime.
Riverdog and I (among others), had been speculating in may have been far more likely she was kidnapped. This is not (or was not) all that far fetched, as that sort of thing is not unknown in the Caribbean and Central/South American countries.
Sadly, this now appears to be a moot point. What a sad end to such a promising young lady and the bright future she had planned. Rest In Peace Natalee and may time ease the pain of her parents, family, and friends.
There appears to be some major disagreement coming out of Aruba. While Fox is continuing to report Natalee has been killed. And her parents have either been escorted to the site, she was alleged to have been placed, or they are heading there at this hour. AP (and ABC news) is reporting Aruban officials are NOT agreeing in confirming she is dead, or that her remains have been found. There is even disagreement as to whether or not a confession has been obtained from one of three suspects. We shall see.
