For a guy who reportedly complained that he couldn’t get a date before he got to Peru and picked up Stephany Flores Ramirez in a Lima casino, Joran Van Der Sloot is certainly telling a far different tale these days. In an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf on Tuesday, Joran Van Der Sloot said that, since being incarcerated in Lima’s notorious Miguel Castro Castro Prison, he has received a lot of letters containing marriage proposals.
Marriage proposals weren’t the only kind of proposals Joran Van Der Sloot has been receiving. Van Der Sloot, who is being held in a Peruvian prison on suspicion of murdering and robbing 21-year-old business student Stephany Flores Ramirez on May 30 in his hotel room, revealed that one woman wanted him to get her pregnant.
De Telegraaf reported that in the 20 minutes that their reporter spent with the 22-year-old Dutchman in his cell, not one time did he express any remorse about the death of Stephany Flores Ramirez, a murder he confessed to but is now recanting. Van Der Sloot is now saying that he was “tricked” into confessing but would not give the newspaper any details, telling them that it would all be made clear later.
Many may be shocked that there would be women, complete strangers, that would want to have anything to do with a suspected murderer, but the phenomenon has been known to occur, especially with high profile killers.
ABC News listed several in an article on prison inmate marriage in 2005. Kevin Bianchi and Angelo Buono, the “Hillside Strangler” duo that murdered ten girls in Los Angeles, married in prison. The Menendez brothers, Erik and Kyle, who were convicted of murdering their own parents, also married in prison. Richard Ramirez, the famed “Night Stalker,” not only had groupies at his well-publicized trial but married a pen pal while in prison as well. Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh received marriage proposals before he was put to death and convicted murderer, Scott Peterson, has reportedly received numerous letters from female admirers.
Joran Van Der Sloot also told the Dutch paper that he expected to be in the Lima prison for about two years before his trial. Although one might believe that two years would be a long time to wait to meet and/or date and/or have sex with and/or marry someone, Van Der Sloot might not have to wait very long at all. A prison consultant appearing on CBS “Early Show” Friday said, after noting that Joran Van Der Sloot was a “dead man,” said, “I mean, in this prison, if you can get money on the inside, you can get drugs, you can get special food, you can get a woman in your cell. You can get just about anything you want. But he’s in an isolation unit.”
But it has been reported that Van Der Sloot will only be kept in isolation for five or six months.
And Joran Van Der Sloot’s family has a lot of money…
