Joran van der Sloot Retracting Confession But Mother Says He is Mentally Ill

June 21, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Perhaps living up to his reputation as a pathological liar, Joran van der Sloot, has reportedly retracted his confession to the murder of Stephany Flores.  According to the reported confession, Van der Sloot struck Flores in his room, strangled her with his bare hands, then used his shirt to choke her.  Citing intimidation during the interrogation process and a broken promise that he would be moved to his native Netherlands after a confession, Joran now reportedly claims he didn’t kill her n an interview with the Dutch newspaper, De Telegraaf.  “I was tricked,” the paper quoted him as saying. “I’ll explain later how it all happened.”
Van der Sloot says he was “scared” when police questioned him. “In my blind panic, I signed everything, but didn’t even know what it said,” he reportedly told the newspaper.  Van der Sloot who is also the primary suspect in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway in 2005, and has often given conflicting statements on his involvement with that case. Van der Sloot’s mom Anita also spoke with De Telegraaf (The Telegraph) and is not standing behind her son saying:

“Joran is sick in his head, but he wanted no help,” Anita van der Slot said. “His departure to Peru was a flight to escape being committed to a clinic.”  She said she will not visit her 22-year-old son in his Peruvian prison cell. “If he did this, he must bear the consequences. I cannot embrace him,” Anita van der Sloot said. “He needs mental help but is not the monster people make him out to be.”

    Well of course he retrackd his confession, did you ever think he would not, this guy is very very cleaver, do not let him or them ( or his Mother, who when Natalie was missing and Yuron was charged, she and her husband, who also was a dirty politician player to cover up his sons tracks, stated their son was a kind person and had nothing to do with anything is this case, yeah we all believed this) fool you into thinking he is mentally ill, he has lead us all on a wild ride of how what when and why from Natalie to Stephanie, this is not a mental issue at all….He knew and knows the more is shuffles the deck of info, the more officials have to untangle the web, but the web always has a beginning thread, a distinct pattern, and a end thread. He made some bad moves, as in the game of “chess”.. he lost his mind game plain and simple, he took the lives of 2 young women, and prepared himself in everyway to cover his crime…even with some “cream hair bleach”. Mental I think not, Aruba gave him the power to believe, there was nothing he couldn’t get away with, and he loved the fact he got away with it….the came Stephanie and his “fat” head told him he could do it again….Let him rot in Peru with his killer “smerk”, plain and simple.

    Bernadette – He killed at least one woman (by his own admission) and is believed to have trafficked underage girls as sex slaves through Asia. You may think he has an ‘illness’, but I think the only ‘illness’ is the guy is a psychopath. As far as they can tell, there is no treatment for that. Even if there was, the man needs to spend his life behind bars…he has not shown as ounce of remorse for a second, instead enjoying the celebrity and admitting to trying to get back at the Holloway family.

    I hope the next victim of scum like this isn’t you or someone you love. You may find it harder to excuse him as needing help.
