By this time, I suspect she's fish and shark feces.

I don't know. There's obviously some foul play involved (unless she just doesn't want to be found). If Holloway wasn't white this story wouldn't have made the news.

Sadly, I think she's probably dead. I don't know whether she got dumped in the ocean and they'll never be a body, or she's in a ditch somewhere rotting. Just awful!

I don't think it's because she's white that this got all the press, she's American and her parents made a huge stink and she was 18. Aruba can kiss goodbye any American tourism business they had going.

I agree.

And if they ever find a body it's going to be the next Scott Peterson case - concerning publicity.

I disagree. This happens way too often. Some white young person goes missing and the whole country knows about it. If Natalie was black, Hispanic or Asian there would NOT be the same amount of media coverage e.g. Katie Couric, etc wouldn't be devoting so much time to it.

Guys, does the race issue really matter right now in the grand scheme of things? A young girl is missing. God knows what happened to her and everyone keeps making it a racial issue.

I think this girl is dead. That teenager she was with probably tried to have sex with her and things got out of control. I think his family and friends knew it and tried to cover for him.

The Enquirer, for what it's worth, is saying they drugged her with a date rape drug and she od'ed on the beach so they tossed her in the ocean in a row boat.

Helen, you should buy some land on the island and glam it up as only you can. You could open a store and sell Joan's fabulous jewelry, and Sally could open a restaurant or 4 (to feed the children of course).

I'm sure land's cheap there now that American tourism will come to screaching halt!
I could open like a gambling resort with drag queens doing all the shows, which will be scenes from my movies and songs I sang in them of course. Joan will do anything for a buck, so she's on board. Have you seen some of the shit they peddle as jewelry to tourists down there? Joan could hike her QVC prices up 2-3 times and sell out down there. Sally could open up like a chain of restaurants and say that a portion of all sales go to starving children--like 1 cent!!

Someone told me she is dead or got sold into slavery. She said that there is still some sort of slavery going on down there...?

So you contend that the media is racist or just Katie Couric for devoting coverage to a young "white" person gone missing in paradise? Would you prefer it if the media covered this story less? The fact is, it's an international story, thus the intense coverage. And if the young lady were black, hispanic or asian, the coverage would be the same and I would feel just as bad for her family as I do the Holloway's. This has nothing to do with race, or being racist.

Racism does still exist, unfortunately, but to apply racism to every single event that involves anyone but a white child and comparing whatever attention comes along, has become tedious and obtuse.
