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.

    Without a doubt this guy has the lack of empathy needed to be a serial killer. You could just see it in the way he behaved when the Holloway investigation was going on. The two victims' families must be devastated. Fortunately, he also lacks the brains to know how to get away with his murders (his father did all the work the first time). I hope he is treated like human blowup doll in Peruvian jail for the rest of his long life; although I suspect he will commit suicide before he is caught.

    His best punishment is to spend his remaining days in the notorious Peruvian prison to which he will be sentenced..he will wish he had stood trial in Aruba for Natalee's murder instead. Karma bites big time.Joran. How many others have you killed? the police down there will not be so polite!

    This new death is Aruba's culpability. They didn't prosecute out of fear of damaging their tourist business, so they chose $$$ over lives, and this is one direct consequence and there are probalby other murdered women around the world not yet linked to this globe-trotting spoiled dutch childman-without-conscience crime spree. If he doesn't get what he wants, he kills. Aruba could have ended this at one death.

    Yo, TuTone there is a black boy in south america that is wanted by the authorities. If you don't know who it is, you must be illiterate.

    It's high time this sociopath gets caught and justice prevails.... I find it utterly appalling that Aruba did not lock him up.
    Another life has been lost and no telling how many others will surface now. My heart goes out to Natalee's parents and the parents of this Peruvian girl... Aruba should be ashamed of their justice system. They could have prevented this.
    Peru willl kill him before he even gets to court...

    Daddy can't save him now! I hope an autopsy was performed on the father, the son may have did him in. I think this killer will commit suicide before he the police catch him.
