Wiki

Joran Andreas Petrus van der Sloot (Dutch pronunciation: ; born August 6, 1987) is a Dutch national who lived in Aruba. He has been indicted by a federal grand jury in the United States for wire fraud and extortion related to the whereabouts of Natalee Holloway, who disappeared in Aruba on May 30, 2005, and is charged in Peru with the first-degree murder and robbery of Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramírez, who died in the Peruvian capital Lima on May 30, 2010, exactly five years after Holloway's disappearance.

Van der Sloot was apprehended on June 3, 2010, in Chile and was deported to Peru the next day. On June 7, he confessed to causing the death of Flores Ramírez and was transferred on June 11 to Miguel Castro Castro maximum security prison in Lima, where he is awaiting trial and faces 30 years imprisonment. He has since attempted to legally retract his confession, claiming that he had been intimidated by the National Police of Peru and framed by the FBI. However, a Peruvian judge ruled on June 25, 2010, that the confession is valid.

The Holloway and Flores Ramírez cases both attracted widespread media attention. Van der Sloot continued to be the subject of international news coverage from prison, leading to controversies that resulted in the investigation and suspension of Peruvian officials. Time magazine declared Van der Sloot's arrest the top crime story of 2010.
