Natalee Holloway: TX Searchers Give Up
Update July 13, 4:45 pm: Texas searchers are giving up and going home. And the judge will issue a ruling Thursday on whether either or both the Kalpoe brothers must return to jail and whether Joran van der Sloot's father can continue visiting him in jail.
Update 8 pm: The news continues to dwell on growing resentment of Arubans to the Holloway criticism of their legal system. On Greta: The prosecution is appealing the decision to release the brothers. The appeal will be decided by three judges from Curacao after a hearing.
As a sign of how little real news there is, Greta will be "re-walking Natalee's mother through her first 24 hours" after she learned of Natalee's disappearance.
