Van Der Sloot’s father is a prominent official in the Aruba justice system. Reports indicate that Van Der Sloot may have been romantically involved with the Holloway the night she disappeared. The Surinamese brothers in custody, 18 year-old Satish Kalpoe and 22 year-old Deepak Kalpoe, are sons of a local Aruban business man.
