Authorities in a -- are examining Natalee Holloway is dental records.
Hoping the discovery of a human jawbone on a beach in Aruba might be the key that unlocks the mystery.
As to what happened to that American teenager joining us now Geraldo Rivera.
Anchor of Geraldo at Large he has been to -- many times and those -- great deal about the investigation.
In her disappearance you've spoken to her father Craig -- my brother Craig yesterday Dave -- he is.
You know he's hunting this weekend.
So the fact that he didn't call the hunting trip in some ways to me.
Mitigates the urgency of it but clearly Dave believes that this is more legitimate.
Then the remember the scuba.
Coupled with scuba diving couple some months ago so what they thought was a skull and some bones under water.
He dismissed that this he believes might at least be human remains.
Whether the lead from that.
Add to its Natalee Holloway is five years later that's enough there but as I've said before his family has been jerked around so many times up and down and and -- -- -- underwater photo was a good example of -- the underwater photo clearly was -- can elect the Loch Ness Monster.
But in this case Dave firmly believes that the Ruben forensic experts believe that this is a young woman's -- about.
He believes that the -- believe that now it is then sent to the Netherlands.
Are higher tech you know they're very highly evolved in terms of their forensic technology.
They are now examining the remains.
More importantly they have requested additional material.
From the Holloway family and from the Alabama and authorities they've gotten electronic records and they've also gotten more of her more physical evidence.
To track and see whether or not.
The miracle is true and it is it is that so let's say the -- turns out to be -- all right that tells you she's dead.
Most people kind of assume that now anyway what does it do for the investigation does it actually move us anywhere I I don't think you can leave.
Past that first port of what you said John because clearly it does establish whether or not she -- Zoran has gone to.
To her maker that's a big deal for the -- is they have been living look at that.
The mother she's been driven you know to the brink by this thing that's what caused her to go all the way to Lima Peru to confront your on -- slowed.
The probable suspect.
With a hidden camera and all the rest that they need this fairly desperately needs closure.
But now -- of the substantive point of what you just said it is a tremendous -- to find any human jawbone and then.
To -- -- you know was find out who.
Put bad bone there who's responsible how do you link.
The bone the physical evidence of her -- or mortality with this suspect in prison in Lima.
I submit to you that the fact that he is now accused and has made admissions in this other murder case the Stephanie Ramirez murder killed.
Five years that a date of -- tell parents that will be your -- destiny they'll rot in a Peruvian prison for the rest of his natural life.
But at least the Stanley will note that there Natalee is and that's sex slave or some and -- -- preposterous stories and.
And if there are developments on this case I know you'll have -- how this all we can best at large 10 PM Saturday and Sunday on the there lot of people tune in Geraldo Rivera thanks thank -- This.
A for a little bit more on this guys -- a -- and go to doctor Michael -- and he's a friend pat -- -- also -- Fox News contributor.
And on the phone with us is mark Furman a former LAPD homicide detective also Fox News contributors -- doctor -- and -- talking a little bits -- rather they're about what else we can find out from his job and I mean how much information.
Can you really discover through this one piece.
Well that the jawbone and dental X rays are like fingerprints just like fingerprints they unique for each of us so.
We need we don't even know tech old tech like an old X ray.
That could have been taken and Aruba and compared to the previous dental X rays that were submitted by a family can immediately tell them and they may already know whether it matches are not matches and whether it's.
And that we are not.
If it's a human jawbone as it jawbone is easy to see as human very no other animals have -- -- has something similar to it.
That is that -- somebody else and that has to be pursued -- with the DNA becomes so critical is it.
And that'll tell us who it is.
Apple has to be searched.
It and that's important to mention as we don't know exactly who -- -- job bone belongs to but still there could be an investigation regardless of that mark so.
With that again I some evidence like this where would you bring this investigation after we discover -- this -- -- belongs -- Well what's interesting about this news first you have to exclude the most obvious or include -- Natalie Holloway.
Then you move on to -- just exactly how was the jawbone separated from the rest of the skeletal.
-- the -- -- the rest of council remains about bodies so when did the -- Come out how long had not been in the water and were the -- removed.
Manually by the suspect or by natural occurrences -- animals so.
-- you've got to move into blackening the -- joke of the -- and I suspect they already know that like doctor Baden says.
They've already looked at X rays -- on the comical that now -- requested dental records five and a half years after she's missing they just request dental records.
I mean that's kind of silly that's the first -- note of identifying remains.
You know doctor -- out for Myanmar it's just said about you the different.
Well the different things that could have happened to this person who ever this job -- belongs to how much information could you find out again.
Just about -- mark had to say about how how long the bone was in the water what exactly the person.
I was maybe eating or drinking headed this is -- -- and how can you actually get all that information from that one piece.
Yes we don't know the body's been in the water or in the ground but if bodies are buried in soil.
They root canal.
-- Is wonderful for being able to also do toxicology.
If she had had a date -- drug for example.
They might still be able to find toxic a lot to evidence of it in the root canal which is a very protected part.
Of the body.
So that's one area I think that they should have -- hopefully they have that whole area.
-- go up and they're doing a search because of the jawbone is there is mark -- where the rest that the body and we don't know yet I haven't seen any evidence whether it was washed it.
Up from -- weather was buried or.
How this was obtained but they know a lot now they know what it's that we are not.
They've had the vote since the body was -- -- around just by the old dental X rays well.
And mark finally here just over the next couple days obviously get we've been mentioning that there's been so many.
Well it seems like a near miss this year or near -- -- should -- with this investigation what's the one -- interviewer should watch as the story developed over the next.
-- few hours really.
-- -- -- -- You you might have a problem that yes you could say that got person what Hurst -- or not is in fact deceased but then you have to prove that they -- die at the hands of another which is a homicide.
Is that some of these visit ground from some other circumstance and the -- ocean.
Took the body or -- or whatever circumstance but now you've got to make that -- Approval homicide and not might be there.
-- Mark -- in doctor -- thank you so much to both of you for joining us today.
You know the.
