Van Der Sloot Admits Guilt

Updated on January 11, 2012

This time there is no way out

Prime suspect in the 2007 Natalee Holloway case, Joran Van Der Sloot, has plead guilty to the murder of a young Peruvian woman.

Saying he is "truly regretful for what [he has] done" Van Der Sloot apologized for the 2010 murder of 21-year old, Stephany Flores, before a Peruvian court.

A resident of Lima Peru, the young woman was found dead in Sloot's hotel room, in the South American country.

Prosecutors refute the claim: Sloot killed the young woman in a fit of rage when he discovered her looking for news stories of his alleged involvement in the Holloway case on his laptop, instead, they contend he killed her simply to rob her of her casino winnings.

Sloot's attorney, cited "extreme psychological trauma" due the Holloway case as reason for his client's actions in Peru.

Meanwhile, federal officials in Alabama seek to bring the 24-year old, Van Der Sloot, to the U.S. and try him in the disappearance of Mountain Brook teenager, Natalee Holloway, who vanished in the island of Aruba in 2007.

While Van der Sloot has maintained his innocence in the possible Holloway murder, Alabama officials wish to charge the man with extortion in the case.

Officials have said, Van Der Sloot allegedly attempted to extort money from Holloway's parents for information leading to the whereabouts of Natalee's body.

While a plan has long been in place to extradite the Holloway suspect to the U.S., Van Der Sloot's guilty plea before a Peruvian court has complicated matters all the more. And whether or not Holloway's parents will ever experience some closure in their daughter's disappearance, remains to be seen.

      I'm glad this guy gets what he deserved years ago. It is terrible that another family and community had to suffer for this to happen.
