Natalee Holloway Confession ‘Fantasy’, Prosecutor Says
February 23, 2010
“The locations, names and times he gave just did not make sense,” prosecutor Peter Blanken said of a confession that was originally heard in August, reopening the case of the missing teen whose body was never found.
Joran van der Sloot’s confession was first revealed by De Telegraaf, a Dutch tabloid paper.
They quoted Blanken of saying the story was held together “by lies”.
Sloot has so far said that Natalee died by accident and he dumped her body out of fear of being accused and that he sold her on a boat to a man for $10,000, both stories he now claims were lies.
Three men have been questioned, but none charged.
