The Man Who Murdered Natalie Holloway Does It Again


This time there's a body...

LIMA, Peru - A young Dutchman previously arrested in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba is the prime suspect in the weekend killing of a Peruvian woman, police said Wednesday.

Joran van der Sloot is being sought for Sunday's death of 21-year-old Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel, police Gen. Cesar Guardia said at a news conference. He said the suspect crossed into Chile the next day by bus.

The killing occurred exactly five years after the May 30, 2005, disappearance of Holloway in Aruba, a Dutch Caribbean island. Prosecutors said van der Sloot is still their main suspect in the case even though he had to be released for lack of evidence.

The victim's father, circus empresario and former race car driver Ricardo Flores, said his daughter dropped off some girlfriends at 2:35 a.m. then apparently returned to the casino. She and van der Sloot were seen entering the hotel room about 5 a.m. and the Dutchman departed alone about four hours later, the police general said.


Maybe this time they'll lock this sociopath up and throw away the keys...

He has since committed suicide? Anyways, as much news as the Holloway case involved, I would not be surprised to find out that someone was trying to frame him. There is much hate out there for this guy.

Maybe they won't have to. There's an unconfirmed report floating around that he was found dead, apparently suicide.

This time there is a body and lots of physical/forensic evidence. Even if the Holloway case had been prosecuted in the US, it would have been hard to convict without a body or witnesses to the crime. This time, thank goodness, Joran is unlikely to escape prosecution and conviction.

"...I would not be surprised to find out that someone was trying to frame him."

Dude, I've read that the room was rented in his name and he was seen leaving the room. Is he trying to frame himself?

I wouldn't mind seeing him lined up in my sight picture. If there was a predator law he would be first on a list of undesirables.

He doesn't have Daddy to protect his sorry ass this time. This time Daddy does not have the power to persuade a judge to drop the charges on insufficient evidence, because Daddy is burning in Hell along with Zarqawi.

Must have been celebrating the 5 year anniversary of his first murder. This time His judge daddy is not longer around to cover it all up for him. Hope he enjoys a South American jail.

If he didn't commit suicide, he better do it quick. Capture in SA or capture by people hired by the girl's dad......? If he is not dead he will be.

Upset Old Guy:

Assuming they have the goods on him, this is one person I would very much like to see processed through the legal system.

But, there is also a part of me that calls out for a reenactment of the final scene from Brave Heart.

Jim Addison:

My guess is the suicide story is a diversion while the perp tries to get out of the country. If he can bribe his way to the Antilles, he will be under Dutch jurisdiction again, and we saw how diligently they investigated Natalie Holloway's disappearance.

The one who most deserves to be flogged to death is his father, who advised him to get rid of the body in Natalie's case, and enabled him to go on to kill again.

Daddy's already in the grave. This time it's the girl's father who has the political connections. Van der Sloot better hope the body that never turns up is his.

If the Peruvians are smart, they'll find him and make him "disappear" permanently. Let justice finally be served!! Scumbag rich kid!

But judging on looks, I would not feel save to take off alone with him.

So I take it he escaped into Chile and they haven't found him yet? Were I this poor girl's father, the sub-human thug would have to hope the cops found him before I did!

Tsar Nicholas II:

I wonder how many other missing girls can be traced to this sociopath.

In any event, if he gets caught in Chile or in Peru then he's toast. Peruvians and Chileans subscribe to old-school justice, which obviously is what this kid needs to have done to him.

Daddy covered up a lot of stuff for this loser. Now with daddy out of the scene, he should get what he richly deserves. A hanging.

Maybe the Peruvian authorities will get him to tell what he did with Natalie Holloway's body. Her parents deserve that much.

I agree with Mag. I bet this criminal killed a young woman on the anniversary of the Holloway slaying. He just got caught this time.

I have had the opportunity to go to Aruba but I passed. If a country does not view murder as a serious crime, then I have no need for them. ww

This kid strikes me as one who had a lot of personal pets suddenly 'die' for no apparent reason.

"Oh dear! Another pet funeral. But Joran is taking it well. Says he's happy his pet is in heaven now."

I'm curious about the coincidence that 5 years to the day after Natalie Holloway disappears another girl is found dead around this guy. There must be something about that date.

Is that date special to him?

Did he get set up and is getting a message because of that date?

The authorities ought to look at where this guy has been on every May 30.

Breaking News: Fox News is reporting that the Chilean authorities has Vander Sloot in custody. He was captured near the Chilean border sometime today.

One of two things are certain when you get arrested in South America.

1) you WILL 'confess'
2) given enough money, you WILL 'escape'

The rest is pretty much a crap shoot. Bet he wishes he was on home ground.

News Flash!

The United States Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama charged Joran Van der Sloot Thursday afternoon with extortion and wire fraud, saying the Dutchman promised information on Natalee Holloway's whereabouts in exchange for $250,000, reports CBS News affiliate WHNT in Huntsville, Ala.

Your Honor my client would like to plead guilty by reason OF INSANITY. (That way he'll be out in 5 years, after being "cured").
