Natalee Went To Aruba To Celebrate Her Graduation.
Natalee finished from Mountain Brook High School on May 24, 2005 and planned on going to University of Alabama where she would begin a pre-med programme. To celebrate their graduation and the closing of this chapter of their lives, in readiness for the next one, she joined a group from her Alabama school going to Aruba. Their location was a tropical paradise, the Dutch Caribbean Island of Aruba. They embarked on this journey 6 days after their graduation. Nothing gave the idea of the kind of fate awaiting the 19-year-old.
