Young Mr. Joran van der Sloot May Get His Just Deserts


Joran van der Sloot may get his just desserts after all.  Van der Sloot was investigated time and time again over the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen who disappeared her last night on Aruba while on a high school senior trip.  Holloway was never found.  Van der Sloot and his pals were held by authorities several times, along with his father, an aspiring judge.  The Arubans never had the evidence to charge van der Sloot, regardless of American outrage and pressure brought to bear by the American press and Natalee Holloway’s family.

\Now, another young Peruvian woman has turned up dead in van der Sloot’s hotel room in Lima.  Caught on camera, the last person Stephany Flores was seen alive with was none other than van der Sloot.  Van der Sloot was captured in a taxi, in Chili.  He went with the authorities  without incident. 

Earlier this year, Paulus van der Sloot basically dropped dead on a tennis court, quite unexpectedly.  According to Greta Van Susteren  of Fox News:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: There’s news tonight on Aruba involving the Natalee Holloway case. As you know, the Alabama teenager vanished on May 30th, 2005 while in Aruba on a high school trip.

The chief suspect in the case is Joran van der Sloot. Yesterday Joran’s father Paulus van der Sloot suddenly and unexpectedly died. Paulus was a huge part of this case. Joining us by phone in Aruba is Julia Renfro, editor and chief of “Aruba Today.” Good evening, Julia, and tell me what happened with Paulus?

JULIA RENFRO, EDITOR, “ARUBA TODAY” (Via Telephone):Good evening, Greta. It was very shocking for the van der Sloot family and the entire community of Aruba. Paul was playing tennis yesterday and he collapsed. And the ambulance was unfortunately unable to resuscitate him.

Seems a little odd that young women end up missing or dying around this man.  Best he be put away for a long long time before he harms someone else.  Perhaps being off the island of Arbua and away from those who can make him less accountable will do the trick.  Will van der Sloot weasel out of this one or will he go to prison for the rest of his life?  I suppose it all depends on how strict Peruvian law is and how much pressure the Dutch apply to his case.
