The interview of a man speaking on-camera with Geraldo Rivera’s brother, Craig, just aired. The man known as ‘Jay’ or “J” told Craig Rivera he saw Joran van der Sloot at the time of Natalee’s disappearance. He eventually went to the police.
In the early morning hours of the night Natalee Holloway disappeared, Jay says he was awakened by barking dogs. “Looking from the left side of my house,” he saw a tall man with short hair, walking in the direction of his house. The man was missing a shoe and “hopping.” He was soaking wet.
A short time later he believes he saw Paulus van der Sloot when he came to pick-up Joran. He was looking all around – left and right.
Rumors have been around for awhile that Paulus helped his son discard of Natalee’s body, but no proof at this time.
Craig Rivera asked Jay if he went to authorities. He said he did not, at that time. The reason: Paulus van der Sloot had friends in high places, in the police department and the courts. He said after police arrested and falsely accused two black men three days after Natalee disappeared, he was concerned, again, for his own safety.
However, in 2008, Jay did go to the authorities and they did not believe him. He called Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch. Equusearch was involved in the search for Holloway. Miller had two polygraphs administered on Jay. He passed both with “no deception.” Apparently, the Aruban police still were not interested.
