Will Beth Holloway, mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, finally get some closure in the case of her daughter? Beth Holloway has struggled to find her daughter, or at least her daughter’s remains since she went missing in Aruba. According to CNN, the last time anyone saw Natalee Holloway was on May 30, 2005. This is a long time ago, but it seems like only yesterday for those following the perplexing case. Lots of stories, including the lies that Joran van der Sloot has told, have surfaced over the years, but officials have proven none of the stories to be true.
It could be different this time, though. According to CNN, someone found a jawbone on the Aruban beach near the hotel that Joran van der Sloot mentioned during the investigation of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance. Does the jawbone belong to Natalee Holloway? Maybe and maybe not. For now, though, authorities need to determine whether or not it is even a human jawbone before deciding whether or not it’s Natalee Holloway’s jawbone. Hopefully, the condition of the jawbone is in good enough condition to tell what it needs to tell, and authorities are now in the process of trying to hear the story that the jawbone wants to tell. What now? We wait.
Is the discovery of the jawbone good news for the Holloway family? If the jawbone does, in fact, belong to Natalee Holloway, it will at least give the Holloway some information about Natalee’s whereabouts, which would be that Natalee most likely went into the water. However, this would also mean that Natalee Holloway is dead, which the Holloway family has no concrete prove of, so far. Either way, the news won’t be good for the Holloway family because they still won’t have Natalee. If the jawbone does not belong to Natalee Holloway, will the Holloway family still hold out hope of ever seeing Natalee again?
If the jawbone does turn out to belong to Natalee Holloway, will Beth Holloway try to probe Joran van der Sloot for answers, or will the presence of the jawbone resolve the questions in her mind? Will Joran van der Sloot begin to speak out if the jawbone does belong to Natalee Holloway? Lots of these questions, and more, beg for answers, but the truth is that the Holloway family and the general public may never really know what happened to Natalee Holloway.
