van der Sloot Attacks Guard In Miguel Castro Castro Prison


Did he go berserk?  Was he ‘nutting-up’ as Nancy Grace asserts?  Or, was he just trying to make a run for it?

According to numerous reports, on September 15 after Natalee Holloway’s mother, Beth Twitty, was able to enter the prison with Dutch journalist Peter R. de Vries, Joran van der Sloot went berserk and attacked a guard. In an attempt to escape, he was able to run through one prison entryway and before running through a second one, was tackled and brought down by a guard.

van der Sloot, 23, is in Peru’s Castro Castro Prison, accused of murdering Stefany Flores in May.

Rumors abound that van der Sloot has been bribing guards, buying designer clothes and having gourmet meals brought in with the $50,000 he was allegedly paid for his interviews published in De Telegraaf.

After Beth Twitty arrived in the prison to confront van der Sloot regarding the whereabouts of her daughter, Joran realized how easy it was for anyone to get to him!

Just days after Twitty’s visit, a prison guard refused to take a bribe and told van der Sloot he was required to eat the same food as the other inmates. van der Sloot, who already believes someone in the prison was trying to poison his food became enraged saying, “People here want to kill me!”

Thinking the guard was one of the conspirators trying to kill him, van der Sloot flew into a fury, yelling at the guard and threw a punch at him and then began running, in a bid to escape.

Inmates prepare the meals at the prison and officials have had concerns about the food, providing van der Sloot with meals prepared for the guards.

Shortly after being returned to his cell, van der Sloot was moved to solitary confinement for a 24-hour period.

A source at the prison said, “All the cockiness has been drained from him now… Joran now realizes that he can’t buy everyone.”

    Well, that “visit” with Beth certainly had a healthy effect on him! He’s starting to figure out, in a Neanderthal sort of way that he’s in BIG trouble.
