Some of us
Some of the loyal and fervent blog readers may have heard of a Dutch guy called Joran van der Sloot.
He became world famous when on the Carribean island of Aruba, where he lived with his parents, an American girl went missing.
Natalee Holloway disappeared and was never found again.
She had spent the last night of her life with Joran van der Sloot who never wanted to tell what exactly happened.
He was arrested but the police had to release him as evidence was lacking.
Although Joran van der Sloot is a young man, born in 1987, he has an attitude rarely found in boys of his age.
In spite of his looks, he is ruthless, merciless, rough, barbaric with no respect for nothing and nobody.
For example, he has never cared for the anguish the family of Natalee Holloway is going through.
By keeping silent about what happened, he left them unable to accept the probable death of their girl.
Joran van der Sloot went even as far as proposing the family of Miss Holloway to pay him $ 150.000 for him to reveal where her body was buried.
Recently he went to Lima, the capital of Peru.
Joran van der Sloot loves to play poker and to hang around in casinos.
Also there he met a girl and he took her to his hotel room.
In the morning he left the hotel room and took two taxis to drive him over the border into Chili.
The girl was found death: with a broken nose, bruises and strangled.
Soon, Joran van der Sloot was captured by the Chilean police.
And delivered to the Peruvian authorities.
Who heard him confess to murdering the Peruvian girl.
Now Joran van der Sloot is in the Castro Castro prison awaiting his trial.
He could get 30 to 50 years.
But of course he is only concerned for himself.
He is afraid he will be killed by other prisoners and wants to be in a safe part.
With a cell for himself.
A privilege few prisoners in Peru have.
And he is blaming now the Peruvian police from having him make statements that are not the truth.
He is saying now he did not kill the Peruvian girl and that it was a set up.
For sure, eventually a movie will be made about the life of Joran van der Sloot.
Although he is young, he has had an extraordinary life so far.
And his karma seems to be designed in a way that more surprising events will take place in his life.
A life that is rather sad.
