Joran van der Sloot Defense Theory Can’t Work!


On Sunday, May 30, 2010 the bloodied, beaten body of Stephany Flores was found in Joran van der Sloot’s hotel room.

The two were seen by a hotel employee entering the hotel around 5 a.m. and approximately four hours later, van der Sloot left alone.

So, let’s back-up a bit.  If you recall, in his confession, he told police that he became enraged when Stephany used his laptop without permission and discovered he was involved in the Natalee Holloway case…so he broke her neck.  Well, actually there was a savage beating that went along with the broken neck!

Moving forward, we know attorney Altez plans to argue temporary insanity and will use the “violent emotion” defense in the case.  The “violent emotion” plea is typically used in Peru for crimes of passion where a spouse, for example, is surprised in the act of adultery.  van der Sloot claims he became enraged and killed Flores because she learned of his relation to Holloway by looking in his laptop.  So, Altez says the maximum sentence should be 3-5 years, not the 30 years prosecutors want.   See full story here.

Well guess what?  Ain’t gonna fly!

The forensic examination of van der Sloot’s laptop reveals the Holloway files were accessed much earlier in the day than the time of Flores’ death.  The pages were actually viewed on Saturday, May 29, between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – so much for your “crime of passion” defense!

Dang, those pesky computer and cell phones will do you in, every time!

Next fabrication, Joran?

    I would really like Joran get the 30 years, so this is good news for the prosecutors. It’s also good news that US authorities have now gotten a byte of Joran’s computer in the extortion case that awaits him. That could easily get him another good chunk of time in an American prison.

    I’d way rather vdS attempt 30 years in Peru than any US Fed Pen.

    Thanks for the update!

    Under a very large rock would be the option I would go for! Lord knows what else he may be guilty of!
