Does Joran van der Sloot Really Know the Location of Holloway’s Body?
June 11, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-Joran van de Sloot, charged with the gruesome murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez in Peru, is now telling police he knows the location of Natalie Holloway’s body. The missing teen disappeared in Aruba five-years ago, after last seen with van de Sloot. But there is one catch: van de Sloot says he will only reveal the location of Holloway’s body to police officials from Aruba. And then there is the fact, that van de Sloot has proven himself to be untrustworthy, particularly after lying to Holloway’s mother about her daughter’s location in a $25,000, extortion scam.
Peruvian authorities, say van de Sloot is prepared to reveal the location of Holloway’s body, but he refuses to discuss the details of her death:
“In the interrogation done to the Dutch citizen, he says he knew the location of the corpse of the American citizen, but that he was going to explain everything to Aruban police,” said Miguel Canlla, head of the homicide division of the Peruvian national police investigative unit, on Thursday.
Van de Sloot was taken into custody and arrested twice, for the murder of Natalie Holloway, but was released both times for lack of evidence. The missing teen’s family has been desperately searching for their daughter, since she disappeared in 2005, while celebrating her high school graduation in Aruba.
Meanwhile, more details are emerging about the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez, 21, whose battered body was found in van de Sloot’s Lima hotel room. Peruvian police officials believe robbery was the primary motive in her murder:
“Police said in a statement Thursday that van der Sloot presumably attacked Flores to rob her of the money she had won gambling at a casino. The two met playing poker on May 27 and had several encounters before driving together to the hotel where van der Sloot was staying on May 30. After killing her, the police statement said, van der Sloot cleaned the room in an attempt to hide evidence of the crime, changed clothes and fled with Flores’ money, bank cards and black Jeep.”
Joran van der Sloot faces 35-years in a Peruvian prison for Flores’ murder.
