Natalee Holloway investigation over

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Prosecutors in Aruba say they have closed the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

Authorities in Aruba today (Tuesday) say they have dropped the case against three suspects in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.

The reason: lack of sufficient evidence.

The Aruban public prosecutor's office said in a written statement that no formal charges will be brought against 20-year-old Joran Van der Sloot and brothers Deepak, 20, and Satish Kalpoe, 21.

Authorities re-arrested the suspects late last month, but the three were
released after a court ruled there wasn't enough evidence to show that Holloway died as a result of a violent crime.
