Joran Van Der Sloot Expelled to Peru: Holloway Family Statement
Joran Van Der Sloot Was Expelled Out of Chile Friday Morning and Flown to Peru
Joran Van Der Sloot is the main suspect in the death of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez and also faces charges in the United States for extortion. He was expelled out of Chile on Friday morning and is now in police custody in Peru.
He has previously been a suspect in the 2005 disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway in Aruba, and although he was brought in for questioning twice he was never charged in that case. Now he faces charges in the death of Stephany Flores who was found dead in a Lima Peru hotel room last Friday.
TV images showing the 23-year-old with closely-cut dark hair and wearing a dark hoodie have been broadcast around the world, and now Van Der Sloot will undergo questioning in Peru. Officials say there is 'incriminating evidence' to link him with Flores' death.
On behalf of Natalee Holloway's family, her uncle made a statement to the media:
"We are disappointed that Joran has been able to do this to another young girl," Paul Reynolds told CNN. "He was not held accountable for what happened to Natalee and as a result has been able to repeat his actions. Sorry this other family has to go through the same thing we have."
