Forensic scientists at the NFI forensic institute in The Hague are investigating whether an apparently human jaw bone found on an Aruban beach is that of missing US teenager Natalee Holloway, the Telegraaf reports on Tuesday.
The paper says the bone was found near the Phoenix hotel on the Caribbean island, close to one of the locations indicated by murder suspect Joran van der Sloot.
He is currently in jail in Peru on other murder charges. Holloway disappeared on the holiday island in 2005. Van der Sloot, who was 17 at the time, was the last person seen with her and has made confessions about her death several times.
