Who wants to marry an accused serial killer? Joran van der Sloot, 22, who has been charged with killing a young Peruvian woman in her hotel room, told De Telegraaf newspaper that he has received several marriage proposals. “One of them even wants me to get her pregnant,” he said. Ladies, really, get some standards!
Granted, van der Sloot is as reliable as a ripped condom: he has admitted, and then retracted, confessions linking him to the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, a teenager on vacation in Aruba. Van der Sloot also told police he killed Stephany Flores, 21, but later retracted his confession. But I guess he is rather attractive in that probably-a-murderer kind of way? I’m kidding.

In a Joran van der Sloot total shocker, the 22-year-old has retracted the confession he gave to police in Peru about killing Stephany Flores. And when I say “shocker,” I mean that it was totally expected as it’s the exact same thing he did in the Holloway case—confess and then deny. A reporter from the Dutch newspaper, De Telegraaf, interviewed van der Sloot in his prison cell. “I was tricked,” van der Sloot said about the confession he gave. “I was very scared and confused during the interrogations and wanted to get away. In my blind panic, I signed everything, but didn’t even know what it said.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
There are only two options in the cases of Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores, who were killed exactly five years apart to the day: either Joran Van Der Sloot killed them, or he is the unluckiest person on the planet and also the stupidest for continually fanning the flames. Remember in 2008, when he was recorded in a conversation with a friend saying that Holloway died when she had a seizure during sex on the beach, and that he’d called a friend to help him dump the body in the ocean? Van Der Sloot later claimed that this wasn’t true, and that he was lying to impress the friend. (Yeah. So impressive.) The tape was eventually deemed insufficient evidence. But, apparently, just a few weeks ago, Van Der Sloot was communicating with an unnamed party in Alabama about Holloway’s disappearance. And he allegedly said that for $250,000, he would reveal the location of her body. The money was supposedly wired to him, but the information he gave was not accurate. He has now been charged by the U.S. with extortion and fraud, in addition to the murder charge in Peru. Like I said, on the small sliver of a chance that this guy is innocent, he seriously has not done himself any favors. [Radar Online] Keep reading »
