The family of Natalee Holloway is seeking scientific experts to examine a shocking photograph that may show the missing teen’s body bundled in plastic!

The picture — obtained exclusively by The ENQUIRER — shocked Natalee’s mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, when she saw it for the first time in late October.

“Beth got very upset. She told me it was very disturbing,” said 58-year-old retired businesswoman Angela Pelletier, who did the photographic detective work that exposed the horrifying image.

The blurry image was taken from a video first seen on June 10, 2005 — less than two weeks after 18-year-old Natalee vanished at the end of a graduation trip to Aruba with her Alabama high school class.

Pelletier zoomed in on a large piece of white plastic sheeting crammed into a 4-foot by 4-foot storm drain just a few yards from the fishermen’s huts where Natalee was last seen with prime suspect Joran van der Sloot.

After months of sophisticated digital maneuvering, Pelletier produced a negative image — and through the plastic sheeting there appears to be a hazy image of a young woman’s face.

“It looked just like Natalee. I even saw blonde hair,” Pelletier told The ENQUIRER.
