Tourists Believe They Found Natalee Holloway's Remains

KTLA: A Pennsylvania couple believe they may have found Natalee Holloway's skeleton on a vacation to Aruba.

Patti and John Muldowney believe underwater photos they took while snorkeling off the coast of Aruba reveal a skeleton on the ocean floor.

The photo, taken by John Muldowney of Manheim, Pa., has been turned over to the FBI.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reported the photo could be a human corpse, and that John Muldowney claims he has a gut feeling it's Natalee Holloway.

Natalee Holloway has been missing for almost five years.

The Alabama honors student disappeared in Aruba, the same Caribbean island where Patti and John Muldowney went snorkeling.

While there has been much speculation about what happened to Holloway, no one has ever been tried in connection with her disappearance.

Suspicion has hovered over Joren van der Sloot, who has twice been arrested in relation to the disappearance. Holloway has never been found.

The FBI has declined to comment on the photo.

Joren van derslime your day will come and I hope that it’s soon.

Couldn’t have said it better— what goes around comes around— I live less than 5 miles away from where Natalee grew up and as a mother, I can’t imagine how horrific this has been for her own mother— she is in my thoughts alot…

I do hope this is Natalee’s body. It will give her family a chance to say good-bye and hopefully provide closure to a very unfortunate situation.
And, I do hope they convict that scum, Joran Van Der Sloot, and put him in jail for the rest of his life. And, if the two brothers involved in this nefarious event had anything to do with Natalee’s death, they too should be sent to prison for life.

This is a opportunity for parents and young adults to reflect on what can happen to folks in foriegn countries…Sad, but true….Safer at home, and probably more fun!!!

The devil is coming for you Van dersloot!

I also hope it is resolved.

But safer in the US? Hardly - it is more dangerous than at least a third of the nations in the world. You may feel it’s safer because it’s home for you, but American streets are hardly very safe.

I hope there is a possible DNA link to whatever evidence is keeping that skeleton on the ocean floor.

May the victim’s family get some needed closure in a troubling,very disturbing story.They have DNA on the first suspect.Let’s see where this one goes.

There was a girl who disappeared in Jamaica a few years back and I don’t think they ever closed that case.

I really do hope this is her inorder to provide closure for her family. If it is, at least they will have her back and can provide a more appropriate burial for her.

Ever think about how “Joren” sounds like “urine”?

peny March 19, 2010, 3:22 PM

I kinda hope that it is not I want her to alive! out there with amnesia or being held captive by some crazy and she gets away someday. I know it sounds crazy but I want to keep hope alive by believing in miracles. But I also know that this would be closure for her family. I will continue to hope for a different kind of ending for her

There seems to be theme going around:

Joran Van der Sloot is a SCUMBAG!

It would be nice if he could meet up with his dad….after the electric chair.

Josiah March 19, 2010, 3:47 PM

It’s sad…I’d hope to hear that she was rather sold into slavery, and then brought back home…instead of finding her remains in the bottom of the ocean.

All things in time shall be revealed. It may take many many years but all things come full circle.

Last thing she said was, Don’t worry Honey. I’ll feed the fish.

Justin March 19, 2010, 4:15 PM

Well The news Networks are Dumb for sharing this naw the killer or killers willll go back there and try to move the body or bones

nadia March 19, 2010, 4:27 PM

its sad what happened to this girl especially at a young age. god bless her spirit and her family who has probably been grieving all these years. That couple was meant to find her body. lets just pray that the parents will be relieved after all these year that they finally have their baby girl to put to rest.

I’m not quite sure, but in this pic, it looks as if hands are tied with rope.
Can anyone else see the rope???
If it is Natalee, it’s enough evidence to prove there was definitely foul play.
