Joran van der Sloot is a familiar name to those of us who have followed the death of Alabama’s Natalee Holloway. Now, he has evidently committed murder again … but
was caught red-handed has confessed this time.
Stephany Flores Ramirez’ body was found in van der Sloot’s hotel room last week. The 21-year-old woman was killed after she discovered information on his laptop linking him to Holloway’s disappearance, a source with direct knowledge of the investigation told CNN.
Van der Sloot was interrogated for seven hours Monday, the source said.
The Dutch citizen told investigators that he left the hotel room to buy bread and coffee at a gas station next to the hotel, the source said.
Upon his return, he found Flores going through his laptop, where she found something linking him to the disappearance of Holloway, the source said.
At that point, Flores wanted to leave, and the pair started arguing, according to the source.
Flores slapped van der Sloot, and he hit her back, and then grabbed her neck, the source said.
Van der Sloot told investigators he was intoxicated on marijuana when all this happened, the source said.
Although Flores’ body was found half-dressed, there was no evidence that she had sexual intercourse that night, the source said.
I am completely outraged by this story. I was outraged when van der Sloot was clearly liable on at least some level for Holloway’s disappearance and probable murder yet managed to weasel out of it, and I am just beyond pissed off that he was given the opportunity to do it again.
Regarding Holloway, van der Sloot’s story has changed extensively, allegedly confessing Holloway’s murder to a journalist secretly recording their meeting and as recently as early 2010 claiming she fell from a balcony.
So, I repeat, why the hell was this guy running around with the chance to just do it all again? I mean, I believe in due process as much as anybody, but his many and varied stories to the Aruban authorities were full of holes. It just seems to me that he should have been
shot imprisoned to keep what obviously happened from being repeated.
Do you think that Joran van der Sloot got away with the murder of Natalee Holloway? Do you think he will do the honorable thing now and at least give Natalee’s mother, Beth Twitty, some sort of closure since he’s screwed by the Peruvian authorities anyway?
