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

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

FULL STORY

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.

    At least now, he will join his father in heaven and not be able to kill anymore.

    I think he likes to party hard, and when his female victims end up ODing he hides/disposes of their bodies or runs away. Or maybe he drugs them. Hopefully an end can be put to it all now.

    We've always thought that he just got Holloway drunk, did it, and left her passed out on the beach to drown. Maybe even hid her body in fright. So did he just go rotten from guilt, or has he been a serial killer all along? I bet Nancy Grace is ecstatic!

    It is very sad to see that this guy got away with the other actions he did. Now someone else had to pay the price. My heart goes out to this girls family and now the hallowways may get their day to see him rot.

    Either he's extremely arrogant and thinks he will again get away with murder, or he wants to be caught. He's one sick individual.

    Bubba is a common white name in Tennessee, mostly because it only takes 3 letters to spell it and 2 of them are the first 2 in the alphabet.

    Although it won't bring Natalee back, may his demise bring Natalee's mom peace until they're together again.
