Human bone fragments found in Aruba do not belong to Natalee Holloway, according to forensic scientist Dr. Jason Kolowski.
Additionally, out of the four individual bone fragments found, Kolowski said that only one appeared to be human. Dr. Kolowski had previously told the press that the remains were “human” and “of Caucasian, European descent.”
The identity of the person is still unknown, as well as if the person was male or female.
Holloway, an Alabama native, vanished on May 30, 2005, while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba. Her disappearance caused a media sensation in the U.S., and the case remains unsolved.
Holloway was last seen with Joran van der Sloot, an Aruban native who was 17 years old at the time. Aruban police considered Van der Sloot a primary suspect in the case, but he was never charged due to lack of evidence.
Van der Sloot was convicted, however, in the brutal 2010 murder of Stephany Flores in Peru, where he is now serving a 28-year-sentence in prison.
