A few bozo tabloid news organizations tried to claim that the Holloway murder investigation is back in the news again. They collectively provided thrill-a-minute yellow journalism coverage of Joran Van Der Sloot’s missing sneaker, water, cadaver dogs, the appearance of a new witness, a new pond, and more swampy mud and crud.

Natalee Holloway was last seen alive Monday, May 30, 2005 leaving Carlos ‘N’ Charlie’s nightclub in Oranjestad, Aruba.

The new lead was the end result of months of high-tech secret surveillance proving what might have happened to the 17-year-old Alabama beauty, Natalee Holloway.

Nancy Grace: “A witness has just come forward with new information about lead suspect Joran Van Der Sloot. He says the witness reports seeing Van Der Sloot muddy and missing a sneaker.”

Put a sock in it, Nancy Grace! If they ever do manage to find the body, then let me know about it. Otherwise, please STOP wasting my time with your totally bogus non-news drivel.

I have always been of the opinion that the disappearance of Natalee Holloway just might have had something to do with her big mouth, which just like her mother’s, never ever seemed to shut up. And, it had a lot to do with Natalalee’s snooty high school classmates always taking separate taxi’s back to their hotel. Getting drunk is just plain suicidal unless you are among a group of friends that you can trust with your personal safety.

Who ever heard of a High School class trip abroad to Aruba, anyway? That kind of flagrant waste of money is for college spring break.

Now, I know why CNN parted company with HLN.
