Holloway and Flores Family Unite

As Johan Van der Sloot faces murder charges in Peru, the family of his alleged victim there has connected with the family of Natalee Holloway.

The families shared their mourning and loss, and their hopes for justice in this case, even as it was denied the first time in the Natalee Holloway case.

Said Holloway's relative, "I think the pain they are feeling, it's very hard...We saw the body of our sister. They don't have the body of their daughter.... I am not worried. I trust the justice in Peru. So, we are just waiting for the judgment. We are praying that this case (will bring closure) ... for us and ... for Natalee's family, too."

Holloway and Flores Family Unite

The mother of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway talked to the family of a murdered Peruvian woman whose case may be linked to her daughter's, the Peruvian family told CNN's sister network In Session. Beth Holloway gave the Flores family her "sincere, sincere condolences" when they spoke for the first time Wednesday, Enrique Flores told In Session's Jean Casarez. Flores' sister Stephany was killed May 30. Joran van der Sloot, who is being held in connection with the killing, was twice arrested but never charged in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005.
