The horrendous ordeal with Joran van der Sloot continues to heat up as authorities work to compile a case against him, but it seems that this task may be harder that what Peruvian authorities initially thought. It may not be a cut-and-dry case to prove in the killing of Stephany Flores Ramirez. It seems that every time Peruvian authorities move a step forward with this investigation, Joran van der Sloot tries to set them back with his despicable ways. History reeks of Joran van der Sloot’s lies. Now, though, Joran van der Sloot hopes to set his situation back, a bit, by taking back his confession of killing Stephany Flores Ramirez, according to CBS. Will the Peruvian judge allow Joran van der Sloot to actually take back his confession, legally? Will the judge declare it null and void? If so, will this be the first step to Joran van der Sloot actually getting released from jail?
Okay, so entertain for a moment, the idea that Joran van der Sloot could get out of his most current sticky situation. Would he ever be safe on the streets again? Surely, plenty of Peruvians hold ill will toward this troubled young man. What about Arubans, though? Do Arubans now hold different views of Joran van der Sloot due to his recent bout with the law? Would Joran van der Sloot be safe in Aruban territory, or would an Aruban try to exact revenge for the victim, Stephany Flores Ramirez? Some may think that Joran van der Sloot getting out of jail is a preposterous idea, but if Joran van der Sloot can get away with confessing and then taking it back, what will he declare next? Will he declare that the authorities tampered with the crime scene? Will he accuse someone of editing the video that testifies to his comings and goings in the hotel? Will he claim abuse by guards?
With Joran van der Sloot’s record of trying to shift the spotlight, any of these could happen, right? If this isn’t enough, it seems that Joran van der Sloot always has a lawyer or family member who wants to help him out of a sticky situation. But wait! According to CNN, Peruvian authorities did find skin under the fingernails of Stephany Flores Ramirez, but they found only a small amount. Will this skin reveal the DNA of Joran van der Sloot, the young man who earlier confessed to killing this beautiful young Peruvian woman? Or will the skin turn out to be skin from the young woman scratching herself in some way? Did Stephany Flores Ramirez manage to clamp on to Joran van der Sloot during her horrid ordeal? Did she manage to scratch him enough to secure evidence against him? If so, why did authorities find such a small amount of skin under her fingernails? Could Joran van der Sloot somehow have cleaned under Stephany’s fingernails to rid them of DNA evidence? Will the skin that authorities found under her fingernails be enough to help convict Joran van der Sloot in her brutal death?
