Natalee Holloway center opens in D.C.

By Washington Post editors

The mother of an Alabama teen who disappeared in Aruba in 2005 is launching a resource center named for her daughter to help the families of missing persons.

Beth Holloway is scheduled to open the Natalee Holloway Resource Center on Tuesday at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington.

Holloway hopes the center will prevent many more missing person cases. But if tragedy strikes, Holloway says she wants to support families and reduce the challenges that she faced.

The center's opening comes after police in Peru arrested Dutchman Joran Van der Sloot, long a suspect in Holloway's case. He is charged in the United States with trying to extort $250,000 from Holloway's family in exchange for information about the case.

Van der Sloot must be on some powerful Snow Berry marijuana...

Go JORAN!! Mrs. Hollaway probably did her own daughter in and I hate the way they are trying to make you a villain.

I've loved you since I first saw your intelligent, sensitive face. My girlfriends all feel the same way.

Natallee -- piece of cheeese!

Go get em Joran!
