Dutch Crime Reporter blows case Nathalee Holloway wide open with secret camera survaillance.

On January 31, 2008 Dutch crime reporter Peter R. de Vries alleged that he had solved the Holloway case. De Vries stated that he would "tell all" on a special television program on Dutch TV on February 3.

Beth Twitty's attorney, John Q. Kelly, told ABC News that he has little faith that the supposed evidence will prove pivotal to the case and suggested that it will be quickly debunked.

On February 1, the Dutch media reported that Joran van der Sloot made a "confession" regarding the disappearance of Natalee Holloway as stated by the District Attorney's Office of Aruba. Later that day, Van der Sloot stated that he was secretly taped by someone, but that he was telling the individual what he wanted to hear, and that he had no role in her disappearance.

On February 1, 2008, the Aruba prosecutor's office announced the reopening of the case.

The broadcast aired February 3, 2008. In it, Van der Sloot was seen smoking marijuana, and stating that he was with Holloway when she became unresponsive. He stated that he attempted to revive her, without success. He said that he called a friend, who told Joran to go home and who disposed of the body. An individual reputed to be this friend, identified in the broadcast as Daury, has subsequently denied Van der Sloot's account, indicating that he was then in Rotterdam at school. The Aruban prosecutor's office attempted to obtain an arrest warrant for Van der Sloot based on the tapes, but this was denied by the examining judge.

Beth Twitty, adhering to the position that the tapes represent the way events actually transpired, told the New York Post that she believes Natalee might still be alive if Van der Sloot had called for help. She contends that Van der Sloot "dumped" Natalee's body (which, according to Twitty, may still have been alive) into the Caribbean.
