Holloway Twitty: Van der Sloot Admitted To Sexual Assault

Holloway Twitty: Van der Sloot Admitted To Sexual Assault

The mother of a missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway said Tuesday that a Dutch youth was lying when he denied that he and two other men had sex with the teen before she disappeared during a trip to Aruba.

Beth Holloway Twitty, in response to statements from Joran van der Sloot in an interview with the magazine show "A Current Affair," said on Tuesday that van der Sloot has admitted sexually assaulting her missing daughter.

Holloway Twitty, appearing Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" and CBS's "The Early Show," said van der Sloot and the brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe told Aruban authorities they had sex with her daughter after leaving a bar on the night of May 30.

Van der Sloot, 18, has acknowledged spending the evening with Holloway before her disappearance, but denies any wrongdoing.

In the interview, which aired Monday, van der Sloot says, "I kissed with her but neither did Deepak or Satish ever have sex with her and no one ever said otherwise."

"He admitted this to the interrogators .... He admitted this in front of 10 witnesses in the early morning hours of May 31st of the sexual assault that he committed against Natalee. So, yes, that is a fact," Holloway Twitty told CBS' "The Early Show," according to CNN.

"When her parents showed up at my door with her picture, I didn't even know who Natalee Holloway was," Van der Sloot told Current Affair, "I didn't even know her name."

To that, Twitty told Storm, "There have been so many lies that have come out of Joran van der Sloot's mouth that it's so -- sometimes I think the only facts we have are all of his lies. It's just incredible that he is going to make a statement like that, that he does -- did not even know her name."

In the interview, van der Sloot says he and the others got together and lied initially to police and to everybody about what happened that night, saying they brought Holloway back to her hotel. Then he says he left her at the beach, but that it was at her request. He says, "I even lifted her up to carry her back to the hotel, and she told me to put her down." He says the only mistake he made was leaving her at the beach.

"The 'only' mistake he made," Twitty said. "You know, I am not even sure if we've gotten to the last disclosed location where Joran last left and saw Natalee."

Holloway, an 18-year-old honors student, had graduated from high school in Mountain Brook, Alabama, and was participating in a class trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving a bar with the three youths.

Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers had been held as suspects in the disappearance. But no charges were filed against any of the three, who were finally released after an investigation into a possible sexual assault and murder yeilded no evidence of wrongdoing.

"I don't respect that the Aruban authority tried to pin that it was a rape case," van der Sloot told the television show, according to published reports. He went on to say that both he and Holloway had been drinking when they left the bar. "She wanted to go with me. I wanted to go with her. It was totally consensual."

"It almost sounds like to me that she is drugged. And in his statements, also, he's saying that she's coming in and out of consciousness. That just doesn't sound like just drunk. It sounds like to me it's a possibility she could have been drugged, also," Holloway Twitty said.

There have been a slew of false leads and rumors swirling around this case since it began. The Holloway family has had to endure rumors from one end of the spectrum to the next.

One report out of Aruba in August had a newspaper printing what it claimed to be a signed police interview in which Joran van der Sloot told interrogators that Deepak Kalpoe raped, killed and buried Natalee Holloway.

Another has all three of boys admitted to having sex with her as she "slipped in and out of consciousness." This is one of the issues that have Beth Holloway-Twitty enraged. "If that doesn't constitute gang rape.." Holloway-Twitty reportedly said.

On a recent segment of the Dr. Phil show - Deepak Kalpoe can be heard on tape admitting that he, along with Joran and Satish, had sex with Natalee. He even went so far to state "how easy it was". He went on to say "To tell you quite frankly, she dressed like a slut, talked like one."

"Let me ask you this," Jamie Skeeters, a polygraph expert, hired by the "Dr. Phil" show can be heard on the tape saying to to Deepak Kalpoe. "I hear you can pay a bartender to slip a date rape drug in her drink."

"I've never drugged someone," Deepak Kalpoe said.

"Have you heard that happen?" Skeeters asked.

"I haven't heard the bartender story," Deepak Kalpoe said. "I have heard the drug ecstasy. I've heard they slip that into drinks."

But Deepak Kalpoe offered no clues as to where to find Holloway.

"If I knew were the body is, I would tell them a long time ago," Deepak Kalpoe said. "Let them start the trial and get this over with. I don't care."

Joran Van der Sloot, 18, is currently attending college in Holland. Holloway's mother said she plans to go to Holland "to make sure that everyone realizes and still knows that the reward money is still out there. We have $1 million for a safe return, $250,000 for the whereabouts of Natalee. And we've had posters printed in Dutch that we will be distributing in Amsterdam."
