Prosecutors to detail evidence against Holloway suspects

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) -- Prosecutors in Aruba will unveil evidence today gathered over the last eight months in the Natalee Holloway case.

The evidence has been deemed insufficient to charge a college student and a pair of brothers recently re-arrested in the investigation.

Prosecutors say they still believe the trio is involved in the American teenager's 2005 disappearance, but can't prove it because no body has been recovered. The focus on the three suspects revolves around phone calls and text messages between them.

Joran van der Sloot (YOHR'-uhn VAN'-dur-sloht) and brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe were re-arrested last month and questioned for several days before being released.

Holloway's stepfather is calling the Aruban officials "inept" and is criticizing their decision to drop the case against the three men.

They were seen leaving a bar with Holloway on the night she disappeared.
