Here are the dirty details of the grandmother/grandson story we mentioned: Back when she was 18, Pearl Carter, now 72, gave up Phil Bailey's mother for adoption.
After after his mother's death, Phil tracked down Pearl, and the two promptly hooked up and fell in love. Last year, the alleged that the Oscar winner and his 27-year-old step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines, have been involved for more than a decade.
A little more than five years ago, on the last night of a high school graduation trip to Aruba, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway met a lawyer's son, a handsome 17-year-old named Joran van der Sloot, in a popular cantina, walked out into the moonlight with him—and was never seen again.
A tiny girl with long blond hair, Natalee was an exuberant personality but also serious and idealistic: About to enter the University of Alabama on a full scholarship, she hoped to become a doctor.
Her disappearance left her best friends from Birmingham's Mountain Brook High confused, angry and bereft.
“It certainly got my attention, and that’s how the relationship blossomed.” Now Jan is there for John, whose family was cleared of any involvement of Jon Benet’s death in 2008 after years of public and media scrutiny.
They watched as van der Sloot, the main suspect in the crime, was twice detained by police in connection with the investigation—and twice released without ever being charged.
Then, this past May 30—on precisely the fifth anniversary of Natalee's disappearance—Peruvian business student Stephany Flores, 21, was murdered in a Lima hotel room, and van der Sloot confessed to the killing.
