Joran van der Sloot Is The Only One Who Knows the Whole Truth


van der Sloot ‘s confession to the murder of 21-year-old Stepany Flores is so complete that police in Peru have decided there is no need to take him to the crime scene for a reenactment!

Investigators say that van der Sloot impressed them with both his intelligence and brutality.

“He grabbed her and smashed her with an elbow,” Guardia said, pointing to his own nose. “A lot of blood spewed out … Then he strangles her and throws her to the floor.”

“He is irascible. He has no self-control,” Guardia said.

van der Sloot was found with Flores’ cash, about US$300 worth of Peruvian currency, and two of her credit cards in his possession.

van der Sloot is seen on tape, early in the morning, returning to the room with two cups of coffee and bread.   He confessed to becoming enraged and killing Flores because she found out about the Aruba case by using his laptop without his permission.

Police don’t necessarily believe his story and think he may have killed Flores prior to going out for the coffee and rolls.

“This guy is very intelligent but at times has lapses,” said Guardia. “And the truth is that he is not a person in possession of all his senses.”

Police say a psychological examination is pending.

Peruvian authorities also confirmed that van der Sloot now has a private attorney and met with him Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, more details on the extortion attempt.

March 29, van der Sloot contacted a representative of Beth Holloway saying he would reveal the location of the body and the circumstances surrounding her death for $25,000 in cash, up front. He asked for a total of $250,000.

Beth Holloway’s representative met with van der Sloot. A payment of $10,000 was made to him in Aruba and a transfer of $15,000 was made to a personal bank account in the Netherlands.

van der Sloot showed the representative a house where supposedly Holloway’s remains were.  When records showed that the house wasn’t even built at the time of Natalee’s disappearance, van der Sloot admitted that he lied!

The FBI claims they were working as quickly as possible with the Aruban government to arrest van der Sloot, but he fled before an arrest warrant could be issued.

    It’s good to hear that the Peruvian LE don’t believe him. I’m sure they are making up an encyclopedia on his past behavior vis a vis Natalee Holloway. He’s cooked, IMHO.

    It appears van der Sloot is going to try to repudiate the confession. This was mentioned this morning on In Session.

    He looks evil in the picture donchais has posted! He gives me the willies!

    I still can’t believe the FBI put up the 25K and he was able to escape, but then I remembered, we are dealing with Aruba on this….LOL

    I hope that both families find the answers they need.

    Tezi, I thought it was just me, but looking at pictures from 5 years ago and then the ones from this past week, I swear he DOES look like he is becoming more and more evil with time!

    BTW, none of the $25k came from the FBI – it was all from Beth. The FBI became involved after Beth’s attorney contacted them. And yup, FBI couldn’t arrest on foreign soil without the permission of Aruba. Don’t imagine Arub was moving too quickly.

    I am however, pleased the Aruban prosecutor offered their assistance to the Peruvian investigators. Uh yeah sure, they have so much to offer in terms of assistance!

    Was that sarcastic? You betcha!

    Apparently, there is a report in a Peruvian paper, in Spanish, that Joran told a completely different story to the Chilean police.

    Eyes For Lies has the details in this entry:
