Peru cops: Holloway suspect van der Sloot wanted for murder again

Joran van der Sloot was a suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway


Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man once considered a suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, is the suspect in the killing of a woman in Peru, Peruvian police officials said Wednesday.

There is "incriminating evidence" linking Van der Sloot to the killing of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez, who was found dead in a Lima hotel room Wednesday, Cesar Guardia Vasquez, of the criminal investigations unit said at a news conference.

The hotel room where Flores was found was registered in Van der Sloot's name, he said.

A hotel guest and an employee witnessed the pair entering the hotel room together at 5 a.m. on Sunday, Guardia said.

Police have video of the previous night, May 29, of Van de Sloot and Flores together at the Atlantic City Casino in Lima, he said.

According to immigration officials, Van de Sloot fled to Chile over land on Monday, Guardia said.

    Innocent until proven Guilty, or Guilty until proven innocent? In this man's case he's been tried by the public.
    Problem is, he just may be Guility. Not going to bet on his innocence thats for sure. However people must remember not to mess this up because the next person just might be innocent. Give him a fair trial and make sure if convicted the punishment is appropriate for the crime. My heart goes out to the families. There is nothing worse than outliving your child. Good parents simply want the best for their children. Its as simple as that!

    This is tragic. This kid even openly admitted on film that he murdered the Hollaway girl and his father's money and crooked police kept him out of prison to murder again. I think everyone responsible for this fiend being on the loose should also be prosecuted for this girl's death. This didn't have to happen. Very sad..

    I'm sure not....Once a killer always a killer, just like once a cheater always a cheater. Hopefully this time they can nail him.
