It’s no secret that Joran van der Sloot has some explanation for most everything that concerns him, and his explanations rarely land him in the seat of guilt. This time, it’s different. Joran van der Sloot blames himself for currently being in a Peruvian prison. According to ABC News, he says that he should have listened to his mother, but he didn’t. Instead, according to ABC News, he claims to have accepted an invitation from a man named Garcia, who invited him to a poker tournament in Peru and said that Garcia even paid for everything. Does a man named Garcia really exist? Did he really invite Joran van der Sloot to the poker tournament in Lima, Peru? Did he pay for everything? All these questions do have answers, but how would the answers, regardless of what they are, explain a dead woman in a room registered under Joran van der Sloot’s name?
Joran van der Sloot believes that he was set up. According to ABC News, Joran van der Sloot believes that the FBI lured him to Peru to extradite him on extortion charges? A former FBI consultant and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett doesn’t think this likely, according to ABC News. Even so, Brad Garrett talks about the possibility in such a way that it could have happened. Is Joran van der Sloot’s idea of being set up a plausible idea? If so, what does this say for Joran van der Sloot and the current case against him? Whether or not the FBI set up Joran van der Sloot to get him into a position of extradition fails to explain a dead woman in his motel room. Peruvian authorities are not holding Joran van der Sloot for suspicion of extortion. Peruvian authorities are holding Joran van der Sloot for suspicion of murder.
Given this, how does a plan to lure Joran van der Sloot into a position of extradition for extortion translate into murder? Is the dead woman a result of the supposed sting operation? Don’t worry. Joran van der Sloot has an explanation for the death of Stephany Flores Ramirez, too. According to ABC News, Joran van der Sloot told a reporter that he was framed and that he would “explain later.” Of course, he will explain later, if he explains at all, because a huge gap exists between the idea that the FBI lured him into an extradition position and the reality of a dead woman’s body in his motel room. The gap keeps the story from adding up. The question is whether or not Joran van der Sloot can dream up a believable story to fill in the gap? One would think it quite a hard task to prove that a lure into a position of extradition would result in the body of a dead woman in one’s motel room.
*Meanwhile, the world waits for Joran van der Sloot’s next wild idea.
