Natalee Holloway’s mom sues NBC’s Oxygen over claims series found her daughter’s remains
February 05, 2018
Natalee Holloway’s mom is suing Oxygen Media saying the network used false pretenses to get a sample of her DNA.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Beth Holloway claims the NBC-owned channel told her that people associated with a docuseries about her daughter discovered what they believed were Natalee Holloway’s remains in Aruba. As a result, the show requested a DNA sample from Beth Holloway. The sample was used during the taping of Oxygen’s six-part docuseries titled “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway.”
Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba in 2005. A judge declared her dead in 2012.
Her mother states she believed the show had found her daughter’s remains and therefore gave Oxygen a saliva sample. However, the skeletal remains did not end up belonging to Natalee.
In fact, only one out of the four bone samples tested were found to be human remains.
