All the news media had vacated the island. October the 21st was Natalee's birthday, and I was down in a well, and I got so frustrated that I crawled out, and I swore I'd never come back to this island again, you know, just thinking about that you're looking for Natalee in a hole in Aruba on her birthday. When will be The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway next episode air date? The goal: obtain a taped confession and evidence that could convict his daughter's killer. Without John actually saying that this is the spot, it's a needle in a haystack. A judge has ruled there is no longer any reason to hold the 18-year-old. You know, I'm not gonna be able to look at it from a analytic point of view because I'm gonna be focused on what they're saying about my daughter. It works off of involuntary changes of voice and how a person feels.
Dave and I have built a relationship, and this has gone beyond professional. I can do it from a recording, over the phone. Nursing student Maura Murray vanished in February 2004 after witnesses heard what sounded like a car crash. Joran van der Sloot has given a number of stories and confessions over the entire course of this investigation. Most of the investigators have been shuffled out. We happened to come up on this gravel road, and lo and behold, there's the prison where Joran was being held, and I was so frustrated.
We've gotten a lot of footage of our informant and our perpetrator. Did he ever tell you what actually like, what actually happened that night? He's a father who, you know, has gone through a lot, and I know he probably thinks of his daughter every single day, several times a day, and he just wants to know what happened. I encourage you to let it prove itself to you. There's definitely I would call this a medium level of deception, but if he had not gone to the crematory at all, it would be a much higher result than this. We're expecting upwards of 20,000 to 30,000 people inside the Superdome here for Katrina. I feel good about it. But can you use them in terms of a prosecution? I don't know if it's still the same Chief of Police that's there or who I No, they change those out regularly.
What we see here is very indicative of him telling nearly the whole truth. You know, just a real good kid, and to hear this guy desecrate her remains to the point where we could never have a funeral, I just couldn't watch it. John's girlfriend, she doesn't trust Gabe, and I think she's trying to convince John not to trust Gabriel as well. And I thought I'd never be back, but I did and, uh and still looking 12 years later. He's enamored with Joran van der Sloot.
That is the million-dollar question. So what's going on with John? Here's something we might need to be careful about, because I know you want the girlfriend to go to Aruba, but I'm not sure we can trust her. It's all part of the road leading up to the big reveal, which is when viewers learn what role each party played in the fatal act. He was distracted the whole time he was asking those questions. You're looking at what's around it. And I what we do over the next few weeks is very, very critical that we get something - and get it to the Arubans - Exactly. This is a lot of pressure, and I think it's too much for him.
I think that bringing Natalee's case back to light is going to enhance their desire to bring it to some resolution because you had a lot of Government Officials whose actions were not above board. Just turn off the lights. No, when he gets frustrated, that's what he brings up. We need to get the confession to put someone in jail. You got it cremated, and then you brung it back? It does put the pieces together for me, and I trust Frank's opinion regarding the crematory, and we have enough information. We're going to run the audio of the perpetrator through the layered voice analysis and see how it comes back as far as how truthful he's being after changing his story. I absolutely agreed with Frank's analysis.
You've hit dead end after dead end, and hopefully this will get you to your finish line. Gabriel will complain all the time. When you're looking at these, you can't look at any individual snippet by itself. On May 30, 2005, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway disappeared on the island of Aruba. So that's why we talked yesterday about what we need to do and get prepared to get them to Aruba.
The surveillance, it's never scripted, so you have to be prepared for anything. I feel like I'm getting taken advantage of when I am doing all the goddamn work, and this is how I feel. Statistically, the chances of finding the abductee alive diminish significantly after the first 72 hours. I want the girlfriend to go to Aruba. Then we can use it against him.
In Aruba, you can confess all you want, and you've got to have facts the police have to have some sort of evidence to back it up that what you say is true, which in the United States is totally different. He had paid him under the table money. Natalee's personal to me, and I want something to come out of this. And he said the sooner the better. It's not his fault for killing her.
