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.

    It's silly to think this is karma. I think serendipity is the word best used to describe this.

    Anyone and everyone on here saying this has anything to do with 'Karma' is a moron.

    As for our lady killer... I bet they soon find him dead, dumped face down in a ghetto sewage drain, having been brutally sodomized by an escaped mental patient who had no idea who he was.

    What are the odds that an innocent man would be the suspect in not one, but TWO homicides?

    If his father hadn't helped him get off, that poor girl (and who knows how many others) would still be alive. If it had been my kid, I'd have turned him in.

    It sounds like we have a serial killer on our hands. [Assuming he did kill the Holloway] this is not like a DUI; you do it once and then “oops” it might happen again. In the case of a serial killer it is an addition. The fact the he’s implicated in two murders is too much to be coincidental in my opinion. He was VERY good at covering his tracks with Holloway. My question is how many other dead girls around the world are there he has had contact with that we do not know about? This guy’s a text book sociopath and needs to be put away.

This guy is bad news and this time he will not roam free...he will be caught or living underground and hiding for ever... Its "CURTAINS" for you Van Der Sloot.

    The girl probably found out that his name is linked to the Aruba case. Or he may have revealed it to her and she then get reluctant. I figured that this guy got away with murder in Aruba. Parents please let your kids earn things.

    Why is this guy walking free? He should be locked in a room with five vicious pit bulls!

    Too bad the police in Aruba didn't do their job. Now another girl is dead at his hands.

    Just so very sad another parent had to lose their daughter, for this sick person to be finally caught. My heart goes out to the family and to Natalie's family. The truth will all come out now. Daddy can't bail him out this time being he is up above also. I hope and pray they will find the truth and he will not be let go again to hurt another person.
    (I understand innocent until proven guilty but the truth was always there) God bless these family's and all that have lost a loved one.
