If it were only this easy 5 years ago then Natalee Holloway's parents might have some closure. Yesterday, Peruvian police stated that Joran van der Sloot confessed to the murder of Stephany Flores.
He confessed in front of a roomful of people including someone from the Dutch Embassy. He stated that when he came back from getting her coffee she was looking at his computer and looking through documents he had on the Aruba case. He then grabbed her neck, broke it and then took his tennis racket, beat her to death, packed his bags and left the hotel.
After news of his confession leaked, Natalee Holloway's dad said that he hopes Joran confesses to Natalee's death now. Even if he doesn't confess, I think the world knows he did it. He has showed how violent he is repeatedly. I just wonder when he was recruiting sex workers in Thailand for brothels in The Netherlands if he beat any of them to death or anyone else.
A conviction for murder in Peru is worth a maximum of 35 years in jail. For confessing you get a reduction in that sentence. I don't know if they get time off for good behavior or not, but I have a feeling that about 10 years from now this guy will be getting out of jail in his early 30's and someone else will feel his wrath.
