    All the drama with Natalie Holloway 5 years ago, avoid having crimes pinned on him and now the events in Peru. I noticed this morning, authorities at the hotel have him on tape entering the hotel room with the young woman he is now accused of killing... a few hours later, the tape shows Van Der Sloot leaving, alone.

    He's been called a serial killer, I heard a specialist call him someone who can't deal with rage or rejection. It just seems pretty wild.

    It brings back into question how Aruba handled the Holloway case. There was criticism of Aruba at the time about incompetence & disinterest during the investigation, as well as favoritism & leniency, because Joren's father was a judge. Indeed, there was even suspicion that the father knew the truth, or at least his son's version of Holloway's death, and helped with a cover-up.

    Now Aruba must not only deal again with the issue of whether it let a killer go free, but also whether that has led to the murder of a second young woman. It might be a good thing if the Dutch government steps in and does a thorough and impartial investigation of the people & events surrounding the Holloway case, to keep this sort of thing from reoccurring.

    Yeah, but it makes it more difficult (a murder charge) because the body wasn't found.

    Correct, a murder charge in Aruba may be impossible now, not only because of the lack of a body, but also due to loss of forensic evidence, even if a body is subsequently found. The best hope now might be the evidence of eyewitnesses not known about before, assuming Dutch law permits such testimony to be used in a murder case without a body.

    What I was referring to is how the original case was handled by the local authorities. Was improper influence used, was the investigation mishandled, did police miss or ignore important leads?

    The Aruba investigation just smacked of incompetence, influence, etc....
    It looks like this time its pretty open and shut.

    Word coming out of Peru says that van der Sloot has now confessed to police that he murdered that young woman found in his hotel room.

    I think one could now safely consider him psychopathic.

    I have just read in peruvian media that he has confessed to local police that he killed Stephany Flores and his main motive was because she was "able" to check some of his personal data stored in his laptop pc...

    So the expert that HndsmKansan quotes perhaps is right in what he says.

    Oh and now media is reporting that the "data" Flores was "checking" on this guy's laptop was about Natalee Holloway's case so Van der Sloot hit her in the head untill he broke her nape...this is really shocking...

    In a just world, he'll be repeatedly gang-raped and then murdered in prison.

    It can't happen soon enough. I only wish someone would videotape it.

    I can't believe he confessed. His dad was a lawyer and judge and died earlier this year. I suspect if his father was still around he wouldn't have confessed this early. It's like karma what happens to these people. OJ got away with double murder and went to jail for something else. This is justice for Natalie Holloway's family, but it's heartbreaking. Sadly, they'll never have a body to bury.

    Sociopathic scum who it wouldn't surprise me if they found there were others besides these two. The authorities need to track his movement since the Natalie Holloway murder and see if there were others who turned up missing along his path.

    His scumball father (dead now) can be thanked for this murder.

    He apparantly told Peruvian officials that he could tell Aruba where Natalie's body is. He threw his recently dead father under the bus by saying his Dad helped bury the body in the foundation of a home. Questionable. Knowing foundations and cement work a bit. It would creat a hollow space in the cement that would collapse over time.

    He is fucked, literally. Big cute white boy in a Peruvian prison after killing a Peruvian girl with a very popular family. Her Dad is a former race car driver and successful and well regarded business man.

    He will be raped. Daily. And if he gets a 15 yr sentence or 25yr sentence, it does not matter. He will be killed in prison, ala Jeffrey Dahmer. He is basically a little pampered boy in a very tough prison. Good for him. Get raped and eventually killed. You picked the wrong place to be arrested for murder, Joran.
