Van Der Sloot Claims He was Promised He Would Be Taken Home to the Netherlands if He Confessed
Van der Sloot says he was promised that he would be taken back to the Netherlands if he signed the confession. The young man is the main suspect in the killing of Stephany Flores of Peru. The retraction of van der Sloot’s confession is nothing we have not seen before. He confessed to knowing where Natalee Holloway’s body is located a few times and then retracted his statements.
The Influence of His Late Father’s Position in Aruba Will Not Help Him in Peru
In Aruba, van der Sloot had his father’s influence behind him, this is not the case in Peru. His late father was a judge in Aruba at the time he was being questioned in the Natalee Holloway case. The Peruvian system is not going to show this young man any special handling.
Van der Sloot has been the main suspect in the Natalee Holloway disappearance and has taunted her family throughout the five years since she went missing. He has had two different stories on Natalee’s death, the last one being he struck her and she fell, hitting her head and dying. He also said that his father helped him bury Natalee, but this part of the confession did not come until his father was dead and he needed to use this information to extort money from the Holloway’s.
Shortly after the death of the elder van der Sloot , the younger one called Natalee Holloway’s mother to say that he would give her the location of Natalee’s body for $250,000. The Holloway’s contacted the FBI and worked in tandem to wire van der Sloot money to get him on extortion charges. Van der Sloot is charged with extortion now in the US, but the charges came after he allegedly killed Stephany Flores in Peru. The Peruvian officials have van der Sloot and only time will tell how this case plays out to see if he ever makes it out of their prison to face charges for the extortion here in the US.
Antia Van Der Sloot Says Joran is Sick and Blames the Pressure of the Natalee Holloway Case
Anita Van der Sloot has made a declaration to the press that her son if very sick and that his mental illness was caused by the stress he was under while being accused in the Natalee Holloway case. She is wanting her son to get help instead of imprisonment. Anita Van der Sloot did say she believes her son did do something to Stephany Flores in anger, but it is because he is sick. She blames herself and her late husband for not getting him help after the stress of the Natalee Holloway case caused him to suffer with mental illness, instead of putting him in a “closed door treatment facility”, they sent him to the Netherlands to school. She now believes this is a mistake.
Van der Sloots Double Talk Will Not Hold Water In Peru, Like it Did in Aruba
The back and forth with confessions and retractions that we saw with van der Sloot in Aruba, will most likely not do much for van der Sloot in Peru. The video footage they have of this young man pretty much seals the murder case against him, according to Fox News. The video shows van der Sloot and Flores going into the room and only van der Sloot coming out. No one else entered and Flores was found murdered.
