Joran van der Sloot, the only suspect that the Aruba police have ever had in the death of high school student Natalee Holloway, has allegedly finally confessed. It has been ten years, and though van der Sloot is already in prison for another crime, the man who some have always believed is a pathological liar has finally admitted to his various crimes.
According to Radar Online, Joran van der Sloot has finally dropped a bombshell of a confession that he killed Natalee Holloway when she was on a school senior trip to Aruba from the United States. Joran van der Sloot now says that he lied to the police, and still gives the impression that he believes that the murder of Holloway in Aruba, and the other murder he committed, are funny.
Joran van der Sloot is in prison in Peru in Challapalca Prison, where a reporter, undercover for Radar Online, was able to have a taped conversation with van der Sloot and his wife, Leidy. Joran van der Sloot is currently doing time in the prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, who he confessed to killing back in 2010.
“I always lied to the police,” the smirking prisoner bragged.
In the murder of Natalee Holloway, van der Sloot insists even as a boy, he was able to outsmart the police in Aruba.
“I never told the truth. I made up so many stories against the police … Also when I was younger, I never told everything. The police just never knew what they had to ask me.”
Joran van der Sloot continues to ridicule the entire police force of Aruba, and insists that the Aruban police did an incredibly bad job with the Holloway investigation.
The reporter who was able to maintain anonymity throughout the conversation with van der Sloot acted confused, and made sure that van der Sloot was talking about the investigation into the death of Natalee Holloway. When asked if van der Sloot was talking about the Holloway case, he answered yes, yes, yes.
“Yes, this is also where I am guilty and I accept everything that I have done.”
The Heavy is also reporting that not only did Joran van der Sloot confess to the murder of Natalee Holloway with seeming glee, but the undercover reporter caught it all on tape. It is unclear how the undercover reporter got into the prison that is known as the “Alcatraz of the Andes,” but getting the confession on tape is an incredible achievement.
Natalee Holloway was last seen on May 30, 2005, in Aruba at a restaurant called Carlos and Charlie’s, when she left the restaurant/bar with van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers, Deepak and Satish, who were also never forthcoming about whatever happened to Holloway. All three suspects were arrested several times, but the police and government could not put together an adequate case against the trio.
As a result, van der Sloot was free to go on and murder Stephany Flores a few years later in a casino in Peru. The Peruvian government, along with the police, were able to do what Aruba could not, and build a solid case against van der Sloot, who then confessed to the crime in 2010.
The video of Joran van der Sloot’s confession will likely be shared this week, along with a transcript. This is a breaking story out of Peru.
