Natalee Holloway’s father has asked a court to declare his daughter officially dead. A lawyer for Dave Holloway stated he “is seeking closure for his family.”  Apparently this is a normal proceeding in the case of a missing person in the state of Alabama.  The Holloway’s lawyer explained that their state law requires a waiting period of five years when a body has not been recovered, as is the case here.  The family makes the request after that time has passed so a death certificate can finally be issued.

If you recall, Holloway disappeared on Aruba in 2005.  She had just graduated from high school and was on a trip with classmates to the island.  The case remains unsolved even though a suspect was arrested.  Joran van der Sloot was questioned on different occassions, but never formally brought up on any charges.  Meanwhile, Van der Sloot is awaiting trial on murder charges in Peru of another young woman whose body was found in a hotel room back in 2010.
