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! C'mon guys, noone knows if he is responsible for this horrific crime. The fact he was closely involved with both unfortunate crimes could actually be incidental. Let's hope Law enforcement get the true criminal in this case

    I just read all these comments and I have to agree with everyone, there's no way his Dad can get him out of this one. I don't know who his Dad thinks he is but he is probably pooling all his money together right now to get this kid out of trouble again.

  8. Quit being so sensitive

    Dear Cyberspy and Kmeadows...get over it. It's just a saying. Near all old phrases/sayings such as those originate from some form of truth. There's not denying there are more black men in jail than any other race, and Tyrone happens to be a strong-sounding black name. Quit being so d@mn over-sensitive and PC. Your type of behavior is just one of the reasons this country cannot move past racism. The point of the OP's comment is that Van Der Sloot will "get his". Quit over analyzing it and move on.

    How horrible for the murdered girl's family that he was allowed to get away with the first one. Their daughter would still be alive if the law was carried out. His father isn't there to save him this time and a Peruvian jail sounds like just the place for him to spend the rest of his life. Justice doesn't always prevail when your dad is in charge, but God's justice does and he will get this for sure!

    For sure he will be caught this time and the Peruvian officials will make sure they do as he has taken one of their own. And for him, it is sad that he had to kill again to get caught but he sure picked tyhe wrong place to commit murder. Ummm, I'm thinking Peruvian jails will be a touch worse then if say, he was in a U.S. prison or the likes. They'll eat him for lunch. Once the inmates here this white haole entered their country and commited one of the most hainous of crime they will never let him rest untill he inccurs "KARMA"!! Also Daddy isn't alive to get him out of that country! Auwe!!! This dusche bag!
