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.

    hate to be the one to say this but ..... my guess is he will ask for a plea deal, giving up location of natalie or will "confess" what really happend, finger the other two men that were with him for him serving time in aruba instead of peru.....where i bet he gets the cell with cable/internet hook-ups....

    I wonder how Natalee's mom is taking this news.

    I always wanted them to find her body so badly just so she could have closure.

    Kinda reminds me of OJ, He got away with murder once then got nailed on the hotel incident....this jerk got away with the Aruba murder, but hopefully will get nailed in Peru. Sometimes justice takes time...but it always gets ya in the end. I am sorry for this families loss but I am thrilled they got this @#$%$!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy Jail Joran...you'll be there a long time...then again prisoners hate men who kill women...so you'll get yours I am sure.

    Justice delayed is justice denied. Another family grieves for their daughter because the Aruban authorities botched the original investigation. Let's hope the Chileans catch him and the the Peruvians put him away for the rest of his life. Nothing can bring back those two young lives that he so callously took, but hopefully his murdering days are done and he can suffer the torment of life behind bars (death would be too kind for this dirtball).

    God is good. Unjust never goes unpaid. I pray that the familys get justice after all this time. Its just such a shame another beautiful young woman had to die, but at least not in vain. She will get justice for both nathalie and herself. May both your souls rest in peace

    He needs to be mentally evaluated. He may be psychotic and a serial killer in the making.

      What he needs is to be put to sleep. When has any of this psychological studying BS done anything?

    If he had been convicted for killing the girl the first time maybe this girl in Peru would not have have been murdered.

    I wonder how Deepak & Satish Kalpoe feels, now that their friend has killed another young lady.
    If they had been more forthcoming with testimony, Joran could have been convicted previously.

    And who is Karma? Why is she mentioned so much? Did he kill her TOO???!!! (Just kidding, people!) 😉

    Nancy Grace is going to BLOW A FUSE!!!
    I can't WAIT to see her next show!!! Hehehe...

      Will Fox News Greta Van Susteren be as involved as she was five years ago when she temporarily lived in Aruba to investigate and provide coverage on a 24/7?

    Hopefully they'll find the woman beating coward dead and it'll save everyone the headache. That or maybe one of these foreign police departments will beat him to death in the process of arresting him... Sometimes you don't care why... Being rid of the little retard will be just a satisfying.

    No telling how many he has murdered. Bring him to Texas and we'll be happy to "needle him".

    I wish people would not compare this to OJ – Did OJ get away with murder? yes. Did Vandersleeze get away with murder? yes. Beyond that there is no comparison. The idiot cops in the OJ case screwed up by planting evidence. The cops and string of other officials in Aruba were paid to cover up evidence. There is a huge difference.
    This is not Karma!! Nothing has happened to Vandersleeze YET.
