Joran van der Sloot has been indicted in connection with allegations that he tried to extort $250,000 from the mother of Natalee Holloway, U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said.

A federal grand jury in Alabama indicted van der Sloot Wednesday on charges of wire fraud and extortion. Van der Sloot was questioned in Holloway's death but never charged. He is also being held in Peru on murder charges in the death of college student Stephany Flores.

    Don't you just love how now Joran Van der Sloot feels like his rights have been violated. Why didn't he think about the at least two girls lives that he so didn't care about. There are times that some of these jerks need to be caught on foreign territory so that the inmates so him justice. He deserves the same treatment he gave the girls.

    "In case you have not figured it out, the FBI has no jurisdiction outside the borders of the country."

    Now that the FBI has concluded their investigation and charged van der Sloot, it's time for them to comment on their involvement in Peru. Van der Sloot said he was lured to Peru by someone called Elton Garcia who paid for everything and stayed in the same hotel, obviously connected to the FBI. They said they couldn't comment. Now, presumably, they can. Give us that information.

    I hope Joran gets death. He is disgusting. If that jaw bone belongs to Natalie, I hope they find a way to extradite him to the US so he can get what he deserves.
