Police investigating the disappearance of an Alabama honors student in Aruba arrested a man at dawn today, hours after one of three young men already in custody admitted "something bad happened" to the woman after they took her to the beach.
It was unclear if the 6 a-m- arrest was related to the admission. The same team of officers who arrested five others in the case during the past week went to a home just outside Oranjestad, the capital, and came out with a handcuffed man who looked to be in his 20s.
This morning, police refused to comment on the arrest or say if they had discovered anything overnight that solved the mystery of what happened to Natalee Holloway, 18, who was last seen in the early hours of May 30.
Late Friday, Deputy Police Commissioner Gerold Dompig told The Associated Press that the man who made the statement was leading
police to the scene. He refused to identify which of the three young men who took her to a beach the night she went missing made the statement.
