Joran van der Sloot is an inmate currently imprisoned at Piedras Gordas prison in Peru. Here he is serving a 28 year sentence for the brutal murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez, who he had bludgeoned to death in a hotel room on 30 May, 2010.
Exactly five years previous to Stephany’s murder, Natalee Holloway disappeared whilst on a trip with her high school to Aruba. Van der Sloot was the prime suspect in Natalee’s disappearance and is widely believed to be responsible for her disappearance.
In 2008, an undercover video was released on Dutch television. In the video Van der Sloot confessed that he had been present at the time of Natalee’s death and that he had called a friend to dump her body in the sea. Van der Sloot chillingly remarked, “she’ll never be found.”
In 2010, Van der Sloot made an offer to John Kelly, Natalee’s mother’s legal representative. For $250,000 Van der Sloot would reveal the location of Natalee’s body. Kelly met with Van der Sloot in Aruba, only to be lied to and given a false location.
In 2012, Natalee Holloway was pronounced legally dead and to this day no solid evidence has ever been discovered in order to charge Van der Sloot with Natalee’s presumed murder.
