Natalee Holloway Resource Center Opened in Washington, D.C.


Beth Holloway, mother of Natalee Holloway, the young woman who disappeared in Aruba five years ago, opened the Natalee Holloway Resource Center (NHRC) yesterday. The non-profit will help families of missing people, and is located in Washington, DC, at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment.

According to the NHRC page on the National Museum of Crime and Punishment website, the mission of the NHRC is to offer “educational programs, including a traveling safe program, crime prevention, and [to encourage people to pursue] careers in the fields of forensic science and law enforcement. It also provides families of missing persons with an action plan, missing poster templates, contacts, resources, and handles press releases and media reach.” The Center does not actually work directly in recovery efforts, but helps families get the resources they need to help in the process.

Natalee’s name has been in the news recently because police have recently arrested Joran Van der Sloot, who is a suspect in the Natalee Holloway’s missing persons case. He has been charged with attempted extortion, as he allegedly tried to get $250,000 from the Holloway’s in exchange for information about their daughter. Van der Sloot confessed on Monday to the murder of a female Peruvian college student.

    They should never name a research facility after a known drunk and drug user like Natalee Holloway, imo, because it is a disservice to law-abiding people out there.
