Aruba Prosecutor Says Judge Told Son: No Body, No Case

An Aruban judge briefly held in the disappearance of an Alabama teenager told his son -- who is still in police custody -- that without a body police would have no case, the island's chief prosecutor said Wednesday.

Judge Paul Van Der Sloot, 53, was arrested one week ago in connection with the Natalee Holloway case but released days later.

Chief Prosector Karin Janssen said the judge made the comment "some days after" Holloway disappeared in a conversation with his son, Joran, 17, and Joran's friends, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, 18 and 21 respectively.

The younger Van Der Sloot and the Kalpoes were arrested on June 9 and have been detained ever since. They were the last to be seen with Holloway, when she left a nightclub early May 30. No charges have been filed against the three.
