Joran Van der Sloot confesses to the murder. He told officials just how he killed the 21-year old Peruvian girl, and it was a bloody mess. Van der Sloot told officials he became enraged when Stephany Flores Ramirez read an email that was on his computer. The email was related to the Natalie Holloway case, which officials have not made an arrest in her case yet. But, Joran Van der Sloot was and still is one of the prime suspects in her disappearance.
Was Van der Sloot acting on impuse?
Van der Sloot told authorities Stephany Ramirez punched him in the face after reading the email. His reaction was to elbow her back in the face, which landed above her nose. With his size and strength, why would elbowing a young woman in the face be your first reaction? Van der Sloot went on to tell officials that Stephany appeared to be losing consciousness after he elbowed her. He also told officials, blood was all over the place; it was on his clothes, bed and he didn’t know what to do. Well, he could have called for help for the Peruvian woman, but he didn’t, he took his shirt off and finished the job. He put the shirt over young Stephany’s face and killed her. Then he did what most criminals do, he fled the scene of the crime.
Officials believe Van der Sloot’s initial motive was to steal money from Stephany Ramirez. She had won a significant amount while playing poker earlier in the night. Van der Sloot denies those allegations, he told officials, he killed Stephany because he just wasn’t thinking. But, he was thinking when he took her cash, bankcards, and broke the young Peruvian woman’s neck.
Van der Sloot is petrified of Peruvian Prisons
Joran Van der Sloot has also been trying to make a deal with officials, he wants a deal for giving up the location of Natalie Holloway’s body. Can you believe this man? He wants to be kept out of the Peruvian prisons, and spend his prison time in Aruba. The Dutchman, who wants people to believe he acts on impulse, seems to be thinking about what will happen to him in a Peruvian prison. Van der Sloot has told officials he is afraid he will be killed in the prisons. According to People magazine, his feelings may be warranted, most of the living conditions in Peruvian prisons are unsanitary, health care is poor, and promiscuity goes on. Van der Sloot is being held at Castro Castro in Peru, but for now he is in isolation. Will Van der Sloot’s money be able to keep it that way, or will he have to face what all the other murders deal with in Castro Castro? For now, I guess we wait and see.
