Joran van der Sloot: Sloppy serial killer?

The Prairie Chicken
June 8, 2010

What a mess the "most hated man in the world" has gotten him into this time. It's all over the news, so there is no reason really to get you caught up, but thought I'd provide a few good links for the latest.

We hear this morning that Joran van der Sloot has confessed to the murder of Stephany Flores, a lovely Peruian student from a well-known family. According to van der Sloot, he went to get coffee and when he came back she was accessing his computer and viewing his files on Natalee Holloway. He said "I didn't WANT to kill her. She intruded into my private life." hmmm.

Before I post the links, I have a few observations to throw out there, of course. While his story sounds quite feasible, he told 27 different versions of Holloway's death, and still hasn't come clean. Either Peruvian interrogation is much more effective than that of Aruba or this is the first of many stories.

Now, why would a young woman who is openly gay go to a hotel (and a very cheap one) with a man she had just met? After seeing the video of van der Sloot and Flores entering his room that morning I doubt there was any sexual promise in it.

What we know is that Stephany had won $5000 that night, while Joran lost a few hundred. Her father has said he gave her $1000 for a new computer--was in her 3rd year of business college and worked for the family business.

What Joran knew by the end of the night was that this young woman had $6000 in her pocket and was looking to buy a computer. I suggest that he lured her into his room under the pretense of having a laptop to sell with the intention of raping her, robbing her, and leaving her dead.

He obviously changed clothes afterward, and after seeing the enter/exit video, he apparently shaved as well before he took off for Chile. Pretty cold blooded.
