After confessing to the May 30 murder of Stephany Flores, Joran Van der Sloot is now retracting his confession, saying he felt intimidated and scared. “I was tricked,” the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf quoted him as saying. “I’ll explain later how it all happened.”
Uh huh, sure. I mean, this guy’s been a prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalie Holloway, who went missing after a night of drinking with him on the Caribbean island of Aruba. Coincidence that Flores was murdered 5 years – to the day – after Holloway’s disappearce? Probably not.
In what is a ‘Captain Obvious’ moment, his mother told the paper she thinks he’s mentally disturbed. “He lied so much, that we became desperate,” she is quoted as saying. “He said to me, too, ‘Mom, I sometimes don’t know any more if something is a lie or the truth.’ Joran is sick in his head, but he didn’t want any help.”
The son of a prominent judge, Van der Sloot was twice arrested in connection with Holloway’s disappearance and spent three months in jail but was never charged. He allegedly killed Flores for getting onto his computer and seeing evidence that linked him to the Holloway case. He sits now in a prison compound on the dusty outskirts of Peru’s capital, Lima.
I hate that they move these people with bullet-proof vests. I want an old-fashioned assassination attempt for these sick fucks, a la Lee Harvey Oswald.
