ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — Three men who were previously detained as suspects in the 2005 disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway have been re-arrested in the case, the Aruban public prosecutor's office said Wednesday.
Dutch teen Joran van der Sloot and two Surinamese brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in manslaughter and causing seriously bodily harm that caused the death of the 18-year-old American, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.
Van der Sloot was arrested in the Netherlands, where he is attending a university, and is expected to be extradited to this Dutch Caribbean island. The Kalpoe brothers were arrested in Aruba.
Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005, hours before she was scheduled to fly home to Alabama. The 18-year-old was last seen in public leaving a bar with Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers.
All three young men previously have denied any role in Holloway's disappearance.
