Van der Sloot Confesses a Second Murder?
23 Mar

Joran van der Sloot is a convicted murderer, self-confessed fraudster and by all accounts an evil scumbag currently five years into a 28-year prison sentence in Peru. So who would believe a word he says?

That’s the dilemma facing the anguished family of Natalee Holloway after covertly-filmed footage of Van der Sloot was released this week, the murderer apparently confessing to Natalee’s murder also.

The wannabe poker-pro was jailed back in 2012 for the murder of another young woman, 21-year-old Stephany Flores, who he bludgeoned and strangled to death in his hotel room in Lima, Peru.

Now the pathological liar has allegedly admitted that:

I always lied to the police…I never told the truth. I made up so many stories against the police … Also when I was younger, I never told everything. The police just never knew what they had to ask me.”

When asked if he was referring to Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, he crowed:

Yes, yes, yes, this is also where I am guilty and I accept everything that I have done.”

He has also claimed that he will ‘reveal all’ in a 500-page book.

According to Radaronline.com, who worked with the National Enquirer on the covert footage inside the jail, it is claimed:

At 500 pages, the book, written with a ghost writer, “depicts me as a terrible person,” van der Sloot admitted. But if it’s published, “It’s completely over. In every way you can imagine,” he said. “Then the case will be solved and this is done.”

“The book contains two parts,” he revealed, and begins with the story of what happened to Holloway “of course.”

According to PokerTube’s Charles Retmuller, discussing the case back in December:

Van der Sloot was previously arrested and questioned extensively for Holloway's disappearance after meeting the Alabama teen in Aruba, the southern Caribbean island, that van der Sloot and his family called home.”

Describing the subsequent disappearance of the 18-year old American, Retmuller explains:

Holloway and roughly 100 classmates from Mountain Brook High School in Birmingham were celebrating their high school graduation in Aruba. Holloway met Van der Sloot while gambling at a casino and the pair were seen together later that night dancing at a nightclub. Ignoring protests from her friends, Holloway, who was reportedly drinking heavily, left the club with Van der Sloot and two of his friends, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. That was the last time she was seen.”

Dutch national Van der Sloot has been arrested and questioned numerous times relating to Holloway’s disappearance. According to Pokersites.com:

He has variously confessed to dumping Holloway’s body at sea after she died from “some kind of seizure” during sexual intercourse, to selling her into sexual slavery. Each time he has retracted these confessions.

His murder of Stephany Flores, which took place exactly five years to the day of Holloway’s last sighting, has seen Van der Sloot languishing in the notorious Challapalca prison in Peru’s capital city of Lima ever since.

The murder of Stephany Flores came about after meeting van der Sloot in Lima’s Atlantic City Casino. He apparently became angered when he found out that the girl had conducted an online search and discovered that the Dutchman was the prime suspect in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance five years previously.

This week’s release of the National Enquirer interview where he allegedly confesses, however, saw him grinning happily with his wife Leydi Figueroa and their 18-month old daughter. And yes, the prison marriage and conjugal visits significantly angered those who believe Van der Sloot is wilfully misleading police and family over his involvement in Holloway’s disappearance.

The Alabama teen has since been declared legally dead, but Van der Sloot has never previously admitted his involvement in the case, although he still faces charges of fraud in the US when his current 28-year sentence runs out in2038.

As Retmuller relates:

"Even before the Flores murder, the Holloway case received considerable media attention due to the efforts of Holloway's mother, Beth. She made the rounds on TV and radio in the U.S., telling anyone who would listen that she believed van der Sloot and the Kalpoes knew more than they were letting on.

With the case unsolved after five years, van der Sloot contacted Holloway's attorney in March 2010 and promised to inform of the whereabouts of Holloway's body for the sum of $250,000, with an advance of $25,000. The lawyer contacted the FBI, who conferred with the authorities in Aruba and worked together in preparing to bust Van der Sloot for extortion after he received the advance payment.

On May 10, Van der Sloot received $10,000 in cash from undercover agents in Aruba and another $15,000 wired to his account. He lied about the location of Holloway's remains and was able to leave the country headed for Peru before an arrest was made, using the sting money as his bankroll."

This previous event, which had Van der Sloot leading the authorities on a wild goose chase and adding to the suffering of the girls’ families, has led many to believe that these latest revelations are just another one of his sick games.

Dave Holloway, Natalee’s father, has described the alleged confession as no more than a publicity stunt.

Tabloids will pay for (his story) because it sells magazines, but that’s never printed,” he said to Al.com. “They think they’ve got something when they really don’t. A lot of people don’t realize that in Aruba, a verbal or recorded confession is not valid unless it’s a statement signed in writing.”

Van der Sloot has been described as “a clinical narcissist with an anti-social behavioral disorder” by psychiatrists, and the recent ‘confession’ is actually rather vague, and deliberately so, according to those who know the murderer’s manipulative ways.

The father of Stephany Flores, Ricardo, has dismissed claims made by Van der Sloot that there is a bounty out on his head, placed there by the father of his victim. Van der Sloot was reportedly stabbed last year while in jail.
