A lot of you Bros may be too young to remember this, but back in 2005, the Natalee Holloway case was the biggest story of the summer.
In May of that year, she went with her classmates from Alabama on a high school graduation trip to Aruba. She disappeared the the last night and was never seen from again.
Police immediately zeroed in on the last people she was seen with, Joran van der Sloot and Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. They were seen leaving a Carlos’n Charlie’s together, but no one ever spotted the teenager again. Despite numerous attempts, including arrests, police were never able to charge the three with anything. The case officially remains unsolved. Holloway’s body has never been found.
Over time, Van Der Sloot admitted his involvement, retracted it, made outlandish claims about selling Holloway into slavery, retracted those, then was arrested for the murder of Stephany Ramírez in Peru in 2010. Coincidentally, Ramirez went missing the same day, May 30th, that Holloway did.
He’s now in jail for that murder, on a sentence that runs unitl 2038, his involvement in the Holloway case never completely established.
(Although, let’s be honest, it’s been clear from the onset that he did it.)
Now, Radar Online and the National Enquirer snuck a reporter into the prison Van Der Sloot is in, and filmed him admitting to the crime.
“I always lied to the police,” the smirking prisoner bragged. He’s been imprisoned at Challapalca since 2014, after pleading guilty to the 2010 murder of Peruvian woman Stephany Flores.
As for Holloway, he boasted, “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.”
The former Holloway suspect said in the shocking video, “I think that was one of the worst police investigation that ever took place!”
The undercover reporter clarified, “Are you talking about the Holloway case?”
“Yes yes yes,” van der Sloot insisted. “Yes, this is also where I am guilty and I accept everything that I have done.” (The word “accept” is synonymous with the word “admit” in Dutch.”
