What was Beth Holloway Thinking?

My thoughts:
There is a right way and a wrong way to do things in life, and breaking the law is not the way to do it.

Although it is really hard to know what is fact in what happened with Beth getting into Castro Castro with Peter de Vries, but clearly Peter de Vries did not have the best interest of Beth when they collectively decided to go to Peru to confront Joran Vander Sloot. Didn't either one of them even realize that they could have been arrested because of their actions and they both could have ended up in a Peruvian prison themselves?

I understand a mother's need to get answers, but breaking the law is not the way to do it. I wouldn't be surprised if Joran's attorney doesn't file harassment charges against both of them and charges against Castro Castro for not protecting Joran.

I am not a fan of Joran, but since Joran is sitting in prison, filing charges against Beth, Peter and Castro Castro, would just be another way of Joran getting another hands up on Beth Holloway.

Mistakes made:
Allowing a Natalie to go to another country basically unattended.

Agreeing to set up a sting to try and get info on Natalie's whereabouts.

Sting money allowed Joran to travel to Peru with the end result of Stephanie's murder.

Going to Castro Castro to attempt to speak to Joran without going through the proper channels to do so.

It is really time for everyone involved to take a step back, ponder their thoughts before acting on impulse.
