Getting Away With Murder

Would you like to murder someone? Go do it in Aruba. Trust me, you'll get away with it. This is a damned shame, and it appears that Natalee Holloway will be victimized again.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Aruba's chief prosecutor said he will close the case of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway by the end of the month unless his office finds that there is enough evidence to charge someone with a major crime.

The prosecutor, Hans Mos, said he would not comment about the kind of evidence his office is reviewing but that he does not anticipate finding Holloway's remains and prosecuting a case without them would be "very hard."

"We promised the suspects that after December 31, we will not pursue the case," Mos told The Associated Press Friday. "This investigation should end at a certain point." (H/T - CNN.com)
Well, by all means, if you promised the suspects that they will be free and clear after New Year's Eve . . .

Does anyone else have a problem with this? Apparently, the Aruba prosecutor's office is more concerned with the feelings of three murder suspects than the actual victim of said murder. I realize that it is terribly difficult to prosecute a murder case without a victim, but I wish that Mos would show respect to Holloway and her family. Obviously, he has more important matters to attend to . . . like his tan.
