What Happened To Natalee Holloway?

On May 29, 2005, at Carlos ‘n Charlie’s bar in downtown Oranjestad, Aruba, Van der Sloot, and Holloway enjoyed each other’s company. As the clock struck 1:00 am and the bar closed its doors, Holloway was last seen departing in a car accompanied by Van and two brothers, Deepak Kalpoe (21 years old) and Satish Kalpoe (18 years old).

The events took a sinister turn when, on June 9, 2005, authorities arrested Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers in connection with Natalee Holloway’s disappearance. While the Kalpoe brothers were released from custody on July 4, Van der Sloot remained behind bars, intensifying suspicions surrounding his involvement. As the investigation progressed, the brothers were again arrested on August 26 on charges of rape and murder.

However, on September 3, all three suspects were released due to insufficient evidence. Following his release, Van der Sloot faced restrictions, being required to stay within Dutch territory until the investigation reached its conclusion.

With a desire to pursue his education, he returned to the Netherlands on September 5, 2005, enrolling in international business management studies at the esteemed HAN University of Applied Sciences. The following week, on September 14, a higher court lifted the travel restrictions imposed on him.


Peter de Vries

Joran Van der Sloot’s Sting Operation

On February 3, 2008, an undercover video made by crime reporter Peter de Vries got telecasted on Dutch television, showing Van der Sloot smoking marijuana and admitting that he was with Holloway when she died.

An undercover investigator, Patrick van der, working with De Vries, befriended Van der Sloot, who did not know that he was being recorded when he said that Holloway had suffered some seizure while having sex on the beach.

After failing to revive her, Van der said he called a friend named Daury. Instead of calling an ambulance, Van der and Daury loaded the young lady on a boat and dumped her body into the sea. Later Sloot changed his statement saying he was lying to impress Eem, who he thought was a drug dealer.

Is Natalee Holloway in Venezuela?

On November 24, 2008, an interview with Joran Van der Sloot aired on Fox News’s “On the Record,” unraveling a shocking twist in the Natalee Holloway case. During this highly anticipated interview, Sloot made staggering claims that sent shockwaves through the public consciousness.

He shockingly confessed to selling Holloway into sexual slavery, revealing a disturbing web of deceit and corruption. According to Van der Sloot’s chilling account, he admitted to receiving money for orchestrating Holloway’s abduction and subsequent trafficking.

He further alleged that he had paid the Kalpoe brothers for assistance in the heinous act. Moreover, Sloot claimed that his father, Paulus, had played a part in covering up the crime. Allegedly, Paulus had bribed two police officers who had discovered that Holloway had been transported to Venezuela.

The interview broadcasted excerpts from an audio recording provided by Van der Sloot, which he purported to be a phone conversation between him and his father. In this disturbing conversation, Paulus seemed to possess intimate knowledge of his son’s involvement in the dark world of human trafficking.

Murder of Stephany Flores Ramírez

On May 30, 2010, the life of 21-year-old Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramírez came to a brutal end at the Hotel TAC in Lima’s Miraflores District. It was on June 2 that a hotel employee made a horrifying discovery in room 309—an employee found Flores Ramírez’s battered body.

What made the situation even more chilling was the fact that the room had been registered under the name of Joran Sloot, who had already left the hotel without returning the room key and had left the television on.

As investigators delved deeper into the case, they uncovered disturbing evidence that pointed directly at Van der Sloot. A tennis racquet, found near the body, was ascertained as a potential murder weapon by the coroner. Witnesses came forward, revealing that they had seen Van der Sloot and the victim together entering the hotel room.

The police obtained surveillance footage capturing Van der Sloot and the victim playing cards at the same table the night before at the Atlantic City Casino in Lima, further solidifying his connection to the crime. He was later caught and sent behind bars for 28 years.
