Suspect In Natalee Holloway Case Changes Story

Suspect In Natalee Holloway Case Changes Story

October 13, 2005

One of the suspects in the Natalee Holloway case has changed his story.

Deepak Kalpoe told a polygraph expert that he and his brother and Joran van Dersloot had sex with the Mountain Brook teen.

According to the new police chief in Aruba, if the tapes are accurate, this is the first time Deepak Kalpoe has admitted to having sex with Natalee Holloway. The change in Deepak Kalpoe's statement could have a profound effect on the case.

They always denied having sex with this young girl," said Deputy Chief Gerald Dompig. "And so, in looking at the tapes, to watch if this is really what this gentleman has said, then it is totally contrary to what he has declared at our police station."

Dompig said the new version of the story could land Kalpoe back behind bars.

"I assure you that, once this is verified, and if it's legitimate, the case will turn around fully," Dompig said. "And it will be for us absolutely enough new information to talk once more to this young man, or, as a matter of fact, with maybe to all three."

Natalee's mother, Beth Twitty, said that she is guardedly encouraged, but she questions the integrity of previous statements made to police.

She said van Dersloot told police early on in the investigation that Natalee went in and out of consciousness while he had sex with her.

According to Dompig, van Dersloot never made that statement to them.

Twitty said she and Natalee's father, Dave Holloway, are going back to Aruba next week. Water searches will be conducted and the Texas-based Equisearch will head back to the island to help search for Natalee, who has been missing since Memorial Day weekend.
