They ought to release him into general population. He'll be tricked, alright.

Monday morning, Joran van der Sloot appeared in court in Peru for a hearing for the murder of Stephany Flores; his attorney focused on how van der Sloot’s rights were violated during the confession. Over the weekend, van der Sloot...

Mob Confronts Van der Sloot For Brutal Murder Of Stephany Flores

June 12, 2010
By

Van der Sloot's offer to provide information on the Natalee Holloway case continues to look like a scam. For a payment monitored by the FBI, he told the Holloway's lawyer he killed Natalee and his father helped him bury her. He later claimed that wasn't the truth in an email. The guy's ...

Van der Sloot To Discuss Natalee Holloway Case With Aruban Officials

June 11, 2010
By

The latest according to an AFP report. I'm still unconvinced, thinking the guy is fishing for a deal of some kind. Otherwise, why not just put it out there? I still think he's trying to get back to Aruba, figuring he'd be in a better position.

General Cesar Guardia, who is...

Van der Sloot Claims He Knows Location Of Natalee Holloway’s Body

June 11, 2010
By

He may well know the location of her body, or at least where it was dumped. But I still call BS on this. He isn't giving it up, but he'll explain it all to Aruban authorities? It sounds to me like he's simply trying to play his last card to get...

FBI Financed Van der Sloot Trip, Where He Murdered Stephany Flores Ramirez

June 9, 2010
By

So, the FBI paid Joran van der Sloot $25k and he promptly took off for Peru, where he has now confessed to killing a 21 year-old woman? Good grief. I'm not sure they would even have had jurisdiction, if they wanted to arrest him. He would have had to be...

Joran van der Sloot Murdered Stephany Flores Over Natalee Holloway Connection

June 8, 2010
By

Wow! Bizarre that something relating to Natalee Holloway would result in a second murder, to which he has now confessed. So, the question is, is whatever she supposedly saw still on the PC. And is it incriminating in the Holloway case? Or, did it have to do with the alleged...

Peruvian Interior Minister: Van der Sloot Probably A Serial Killer

June 6, 2010

Something tells me this is not the Aruban, or Dutch justice system.

A top Peruvian official suspects the Dutch playboy linked to two high-profile murders committed precisely five years apart is a serial killer.

"We are probably talking about a serial killer," said Interior Minister Octavio Salazar as Joran Van der Sloot was returned...

By

Lady, come on. Let's see, he's apparently traveling around playing in poker tournaments. If the new extortion charges have merit and aren't simply a ploy to get him to come to the US for a civil suit, I'd say your boy is a stone cold loser. Beth Holloway has issued a statement....

Joran van der Sloot: Sociopath

June 3, 2010
By

There are some inescapable similarities between Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramirez and Natalee Holloway which suggest both would be vulnerable for targeting by a predator. Based upon interviews I did at the time, Natalee was as insecure, as she sometimes was flirtatious – and there was a certain element of substance...

There's one story out there claiming to have an interview with a taxi driver who drove Van der Sloot out of the country. But after the suicide story, which I updated, as it appears to be bogus – I'm not linking the story on the taxi without confirmation.
