As sad as it made me to watch the footage from the funeral for Stephany Flores today, at the very least her family was able to give her a proper burial.

Five years have passed, and Natalee still deserves one.  Her family deserves to finally know without a doubt where she is, and bring her home.

Someone knows.

I pray they'll tell.

Van Der Sloot Sent To Peru To Face Charges
June 4, 2010


LIMA, Peru -- Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot is on his way to Peru, where authorities are likely to charge him with the killing of a 21-year-old woman from the capital of Lima.

Chilean police say van der Sloot has proclaimed his innocence in Sunday's slaying of Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel room.

The 22-year-old van der Sloot also remains the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalie Holloway on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba.

Van der Sloot was handcuffed and placed aboard a police Cessna 310 in the Chilean capital of Santiago on Friday morning. He is expected to be handed over to Peruvian authorities Friday afternoon.

Chilean police captured van der Sloot on Thursday as he was headed to the country's Pacific coast.

Father of woman killed in Peru says Joran van der Sloot's arrest in her death no 'coincidence'
June 03, 2010


LIMA, Peru --Natalee Holloway's family was outraged by how Aruban authorities handled the case of her disappearance, and now the family of another young woman wants justice.

"This isn't a coincidence, this murder," Stephany Flores' anguished father, Lima entertainment impresario Ricardo Flores, told reporters after Joran van der Sloot's arrest.

Van der Sloot was arrested in the killing of Stephany Flores the same day he was charged in Alabama with trying to extort $250,000 in return for giving the location of Holloway's body and describing the circumstances of Holloway's death. Federal prosecutors did not say who was allegedly extorted but filed a sworn statement saying that van der Sloot got a partial payment of $15,000 wired to a Netherlands bank.

Flores' neck was broken Sunday in a hotel room registered to van der Sloot, who police believe met the 21-year-old University of Lima business student for the first time the previous night at a nearby casino. Her body was found by a maid late Tuesday.

Flores, a 48-year-old former race car driver and sometime politician, buried his daughter today in the upscale Jardines de la Paz cemetery accompanied by about 100 mourners. His inconsolable wife, Maria Elena Ramirez, held the slain girl's Minnie Mouse doll to her chest.

The father called on authorities to immediately bring van der Sloot to Peru to face justice.

"It's not just about my daughter," he said. "There's a matter pending in Aruba and we don't know how many more remain unpunished."

Late today, a Chilean spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with department policy, said van der Sloot would be flown to the Peruvian border Friday morning.

Natalee Holloway suspect held in Peru slay
Friday, June 4, 2010

LIMA, Peru - He was the last person to see two young women alive - one in Aruba, one in Peru exactly five years later, cops said. And Natalie Holloway disappearance suspect Joran van der Sloot was arrested in Chile for a Peruvian woman’s death the same day he was charged in Alabama with a Holloway-related extortion bid.

The Dutchman was caught in a taxi in Chile yesterday, and was being questioned in the death of Stephany Flores, 21, a university student whose neck was broken Sunday in a Lima, Peru, hotel room registered to van der Sloot, who cops said met Flores the previous night at a nearby casino where he was in a poker tournament.

A fixture on true-crime TV, van der Sloot, 22, did not acknowledge photographers shouting his name as Chilean cops escorted him into a Santiago office.

This isn’t a coincidence, this murder,” Peruvian victim Stephany Flores’ anguished father, Lima entertainment impresario Ricardo Flores, told reporters.

Van der Sloot was arrested the same day he was charged in Alabama with trying to extort $250,000 in return for giving the location of Holloway’s body. Federal prosecutors did not say who the target was, but said van der Sloot got a partial payment of $15,000 wired to a Dutch bank.

Stephany Flores was fully clothed and there were no signs she had been sexually abused, Peruvian national police chief Gen. Cesar Guardia said. “The room was a complete mess,” he said. He added no murder weapon was found, indicating the killer may have used his bare hands.

Van der Sloot remains the prime suspect in the case of Holloway, 18, who was celebrating her high school graduation on Aruba when she disappeared May 30, 2005. He told cops he left her on a beach, drunk. He was arrested twice and released for insufficient evidence.

A spokeswoman for Holloway’s mother, Beth, issued a statement saying she “extends her deepest sympathy” to the Flores family “and prays for swift and sure justice.”

Anita van der Sloot: Suspected Killer's Mom Shocked by New Allegations in Stephany Flores Murder


NEW YORK (CBS) Anita van der Sloot is "shocked" by the latest allegations against her son, Joran van der Sloot, in connection with yet another young woman's death, according to the family's lawyer Bert de Rooij.

PICTURES: Stephany Flores

De Rooij says that Anita van der Sloot spoke to her son via telephone Thursday but would not give details about the conversation except to say that Joran "certainly did not" confess to killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores, according to the Dutch News.

The young woman's body was found in a Lima hotel room in a pool of blood. The room was registered to Joran van der Sloot, according to Peruvian newspaper El Comercio.

"I am advising him to find a lawyer who knows something about laws affecting foreigners in South American," de Rooij told Dutch radio station Radio I.

Joran van der Sloot was detained in a taxi Thursday in Chile after crossing the border from Peru, where authorities say the 22-year-old man is the prime suspect in Flores' murder.

Police believe van der Sloot met the University of Lima business student the night before her death at a local casino. Her body was found by a hotel maid late Tuesday, her neck snapped, according to Peruvian police.

PICTURES: Natalee Holloway: Paradise Lost

The same day he was arrested in Chile, Van der Sloot was also charged in Alabama with trying to extort $250,000 in connection with the disappearance of  Natalee Holloway.

The 17-year-old American student vanished in 2005 during an Aruba vacation. Van der Sloot has long been the primary suspect, but Aruban prosecutors felt they didn't have the goods to charge him.

In the Alabama charges, van der Sloot is accused of trying to sell information about the location of Holloway's body and the circumstances of her death. Federal prosecutors say van der Sloot already took $15,000 on the deal, but did not name a victim.

Authorities plan to fly van der Sloot, who is currently in Chilean custody, back to the Peruvian border Friday morning, according to a Chilean police spokesman who spoke on condition that he not be named in line with department policy.

BREAKING NEWS ! FBI VIDEO TAPED IT ALL!
Greta Van Susteren | Anchor


FBI VIDEO TAPED JORAN VAN DER SLOOT EXTORTING THE MONEY from a representative of Beth Holloway.

THE TAPING OCCURRED ON MAY 10 IN ARUBA AND ARUBAN AUTHORITIES WORKED WITH THE FBI TO DO THIS.

THIS WAS A JOINT OPERATION [FBI AND ARUBA] CAREFULLY PLANNED AND EXECUTED.
----
NOTE: What we don't know is WHY van der Sloot was not arrested on May 10.  The criminal complaint released yesterday by the US Attorney in Alabama identifies May 10 as the crime date.  They had enough evidence on May 10 to make the arrest - they had the crime on tape. From a prosecutor's viewpoint, it doesn't get any better than catching the crime on tape.

(Note also that Holloway family lawyer John Q. Kelly was seen in Aruba at least twice in May.

More information to come...
----
UPDATE 1:50pm....just learned that Joran van der Sloot left Aruba on the afternoon of May 13 and flew to Peru via Columbia.  Note that he had to go through customs and immigration......that would be a good place to arrest someone ...

Murder suspect expected in Peru after expulsion from Chile
By the CNN Wire Staff
June 4, 2010 2:31 p.m. EDT


Santiago, Chile (CNN) -- Peruvian officials awaited the return from Chile on Friday of Joran van der Sloot, the suspect in the slaying of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman this week.

Van der Sloot was captured in Chile on Thursday and placed aboard a military aircraft in the custody of officers Friday morning. He was being flown to the border with Peru to be expelled, said Macarena Lopez, a spokeswoman for Interpol.

The Dutch citizen was previously a suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, who was on a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba. Van der Sloot was arrested twice in connection with the case but released both times. He denied any involvement and has not been charged.

He is the main suspect in this week's slaying of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez, who was found Wednesday in a Lima, Peru, hotel room registered to van der Sloot. Chilean police told CNN that paperwork showed that van der Sloot entered Chile on Wednesday.

The victim's family said Friday they had mixed emotions about van der Sloot's capture and return to face charges in Peru.

"I cannot say that I was happy," brother Enrique Flores told CNN's Rafael Romo. "I feel a little relief in this pain that I have and that my family has. This pain that won't go away ... We want this action not to happen again."

Stephany's sister-in-law Carolina Jorge was more outspoken.

"We need justice for our family, for Natalee's family," she said.

Stephany's father, Ricardo, was more wistful and philosophical.

"My daughter had everything in life," the businessman and race car driver said. "Perhaps my error was to show her the pretty side of the world. I didn't show her that there was the other side to the world -- the evilness."

The family said they thought Stephany had been abducted, until authorities found her body. Her burial was Thursday.

Van der Sloot's former attorney, Joseph Tacopina, told CNN it was too early to reach any conclusions.

"I just think we need to take a step back before we get to the 'I told you so' stage, and let's see what the evidence is here," Tacopina said Thursday.

Tacopina said he is not representing van der Sloot and no longer has a good relationship with the family.

Van der Sloot also faces an arrest warrant on charges of extortion and wire fraud in Alabama, U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance said Thursday. The charges are unrelated to the killing of the Peruvian woman and deal with an attempt to sell details about Holloway for $250,000, Vance said.

Van der Sloot, 23, was traveling alone in a taxi near the Chilean central coastal city of Vina del Mar when he was detained, said Douglas Rodriguez, spokesman for the Chilean Investigative Police.

Van der Sloot was transported Thursday afternoon to police headquarters in Santiago, Chile's capital.

TV images showed him emerging from a black police SUV at the police station. His hair, which had been dark in previous images, was red and worn in a close-cropped crew cut.

The woman's bludgeoned body was found in Room 309 of the Hotel Tac in the Miraflores section of Lima, police said. She suffered blunt trauma to the head, breaking her neck, and to her torso and back, Peruvian police said Thursday.

Van der Sloot had been staying at the hotel since arriving from Colombia on May 14, police said. Room 309 was booked in his name, authorities said.

A hotel guest and an employee witnessed the pair entering the hotel room together at 5 a.m. Sunday, Guardia said. Police have video of van der Sloot and Flores together the previous night at the Atlantic City Casino in Lima, he said.

Two Peruvian cab drivers said in an interview on CNN affiliate America TV that they drove a man matching van der Sloot's description to a city on the other side of the Chilean border.

"He paid me and I took him to Arica, to the border," cab driver Oswaldo Aparcana said.

The man sat in the front seat and smoked many cigarettes, Aparcana said. The passenger told the cabbies he used to live in Aruba, said the other driver, Carlos Alberto Uribe.

Holloway, the Alabama teenager, disappeared May 30, 2005, five years to the day since the hotel videotape that officials say showed van der Sloot and Flores going into his hotel room. Both women are reported to have met van der Sloot at a night spot.

Ricardo Flores said police found his daughter's car about 50 blocks from the hotel. Inside the car, he said, authorities found pills like those used in date rapes.

Ricardo Flores said he did not believe his daughter knew the Dutch citizen beforehand.

Both of them speak English and they struck up conversation at the casino, he said.

Interpol had alerted its office in Chile and other bordering countries of the case and placed them on alert in case van der Sloot tried to leave that country, Peruvian Interpol Interim Director Gerson Ortiz told CNN.

Van der Sloot was arrested in Aruba in 2005 along with two other men, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, in connection with Holloway's disappearance. They were later released.

In 2007, they were arrested a second time after Aruba's then-chief prosecutor, Hans Mos, said he had received new evidence in the case.

Van der Sloot, who was attending college in the Netherlands, was brought back to Aruba. But judges ruled the new evidence -- which included an Internet chat the same day Holloway disappeared in which one of the three youths said she was dead -- was not enough to keep them jailed.

In 2008, prosecutors sought unsuccessfully to arrest van der Sloot a third time after a videotape surfaced on Dutch television. In it, van der Sloot tells a man he considered to be his friend that he had sex with Holloway on the beach after leaving the nightclub, then she "started shaking" and lost consciousness. He said he panicked when he could not resuscitate her and called a friend who had a boat. The two put Holloway's body in the boat, he said, and then he went home. The friend told him the next day that he had carried the body out and dumped it in the ocean.

But an Aruba court ruled there was not enough evidence to re-arrest him. Aruban prosecutors said authorities had met with van der Sloot in the Netherlands, but in a two-hour interview he denied any role in Holloway's disappearance.

Joran van der Sloot denies murder
Published on 4 June 2010 - 9:05pm


Joran van der Sloot has denied murdering Peruvian woman Stephany Flores according to the head of the Chilean investigation police, Fernando Ovalle. The 22-year-old, who is also the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005 in Aruba, has only admitted knowing the woman, reports Peruvian media.

Joran van der Sloot was seen with Ms Flores, the daughter of a well-known business man and racing driver Ricardo Flores, at a casino at the weekend, she was later found dead in a Lima hotel room. Van der Sloot was arrested in Chile on Thursday after a massive police operation.

On Friday morning, Joran gave a statement in Spanish, which police say he speaks fluently. He claims he can only remember going to the casino with Ms Flores and being arrested, says the police chief.

Joran van der Sloot arrested heading for Santiago
Friday 04 June 2010


Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, wanted in connection with the murder of a young Peruvian woman earlier this week, has been picked up by police while heading to Santiago in a taxi.

Van der Sloot will be held by the Chilean authorities until Peru issues an international warrant for him, which could take three to five days. Until then, the 22-year-old is technically only under a form of house arrest.

Van der Sloot faces a 25 year jail term if convicted of the murder of Stephany Flores who was found dead in a hotel room in Lima. He reportedly fled, paying two brothers to take him over the border to Chile.

Van der Sloot, who is still a suspect in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway, was in Peru for a poker tournament.

Flores was killed almost exactly five years after Hollaway disappeared on the holiday island of Aruba where Van der Sloot, who was 17 at the time, lived.

Extradition

International criminal law expert Geert-Jans Knoops told the Telegraaf on Thursday Van der Sloot would not get any special legal protection as a Dutch national in Peru. Nor is it likely the Netherlands will ask for him to be extradited to the Netherlands.

In addition, Van der Sloot would have to serve any jail term in Peru because there is no prisoner exchange treaty between the two countries, he said.

Van der Sloot on his way back to Peru
Friday 04 June 2010


Joran van der Sloot, wanted in connection with the murder of a Peruvian woman in a hotel in Lima earlier this week, is on his way back to Peru.

Van der Sloot was picked up by Chilean police on Thursday night, heading for Santiago in a taxi.

According to Radio 1's correspondent in the region, Van der Sloot is being expelled from Chile as an undesirable foreigner.

Waiting for an international arrest warrant and the ensuing bureaucracy means it could take months before Van der Sloot faces charges, the correspondent said.

Instead he will be escorted to the border by Chilean police and handed over to the Peruvian authorities, the correspondent said.

Mother

Van der Sloot's mother is 'shocked' by the latest developments surrounding her son, the family's lawyer Bert de Rooij told Radio I news.

Anita van der Sloot spoke to her son by telephone on Thursday evening, the lawyer said, but declined to go into details about the conversation.

He did say that Joran van der Sloot had 'certainly not' admitted murdering 21-year-old Stephany Flores.

De Rooj said he was still trying to reach Van der Sloot by email. 'I am advising him to find a lawyer who knows something about laws affecting foreigners in South American.'

Extortion

Van der Sloot is also facing unrelated charges of extortion and wire fraud in Alabama, US attorney Joyce Vance said Thursday.

The Dutchman is alleged to have tried to extort $250,000 from the mother of Natalee Holloway, the US teenager who disappeared on the holiday island of Aruba five years ago. She was last seen in the company of Van der Sloot, who was 17 at the time.

Van der Sloot allegedly asked for money in return for the location of the remains of Holloway and the circumstances surrounding her death.

He has twice made statements about how Holloway died but her body has never been found.

Joran van der Sloot Charged with Fraud and Extortion in Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM—Federal prosecutors in Birmingham have filed a criminal complaint against JORAN VAN DER SLOOT, a citizen of the Netherlands, on wire fraud and extortion charges in connection with his soliciting money in May on promises he would reveal the location of Natalee Holloway’s remains in Aruba and circumstances of her death, U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patrick Maley announced today.

“We are committed to protecting citizens from unscrupulous individuals who attempt to financially exploit a person’s deepest fears and greatest loss,” Vance said.

The wire fraud and extortion charges are unrelated to the ongoing murder investigation in Peru, in which van der Sloot is an alleged person of interest.

Vance said her office filed the two-count criminal complaint today in U.S. District Court in Birmingham.

The complaint charges that van der Sloot, on May 10, extorted $15,000 from an individual as partial payment toward his promise to reveal the location of Natalee Holloway’s remains for $250,000. The maximum sentence on the extortion count is 20 years in prison.

The complaint also charges van der Sloot with wire fraud for causing the $15,000 to be transferred by wire from a Birmingham bank to a bank in the Netherlands in furtherance of his scheme to defraud. The maximum sentence for the wire fraud count is 30 years.

Vance thanked Aruban authorities for the assistance they provided in this investigation.
 
Members of the public are reminded that the criminal complaint contains only charges. A defendant is presumed not guilty.

Dutch murder suspect van der Sloot in Peru

June 4, 2010, 4:07PM

TACNA, Peru — Chilean police have turned over Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot to Peruvian authorities at the countries' border.

Authorities say he has declared himself innocent of Sunday's murder of a 21-year-old student in a Lima hotel but acknowledged meeting the girl in a casino in the Peruvian capital.

Van der Sloot also remains the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalie Holloway on the Caribbean island of Aruba.

The Peruvians put a bulletproof vest on the 22-year-old van der Sloot after he was driven into Peruvian territory in a Chilean police van. He was then taken to a police post for medical tests.

Van der Sloot was arrested Thursday between Santiago and Chile's Pacific coast. Police say he traveled to Peru on Monday.

Murder suspect arrives in Peru after expulsion from ChileBy the CNN Wire Staff
June 4, 2010 5:17 p.m. EDT


Santa Rosa, Peru (CNN) -- Dozens of jeering, angry Peruvians met murder suspect Joran van der Sloot Friday as Chilean authorities handed him over to their counterparts in Peru in the border town of Santa Rosa.

Van der Sloot, previously a suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, is the main suspect in this week's slaying of a 21-year-old Peruvian woman found Wednesday in a Lima hotel room registered to him. Chilean police told CNN that paperwork showed that van der Sloot entered Chile that same day.

The Dutch citizen was captured in Chile on Thursday and placed aboard a military aircraft in the custody of officers Friday morning. He was flown to the border to be expelled, said Macarena Lopez, a spokeswoman for Interpol.

The Chileans drove Van der Sloot across the border to a Peruvian police station, where dozens of people awaited his arrival. Police set up a perimeter to keep the crowd away from the suspect as he walked about 100 feet from the car to the station, but the protesters were angry and pushed forward.

Police kept them away from van der Sloot but could not stop the loud and steady rain of obscenities they shouted. He was taken inside the station for processing. From there, he is to be taken to the nearby town of Tanca and then flown to Lima.

Holloway was on a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba in 2005 when she disappeared. Van der Sloot was arrested twice in connection with the case but released both times. He denied any involvement and has not been charged.

The family of Stephany Flores Ramirez, the woman found dead in van der Sloot's hotel room, said Friday they had mixed emotions about the suspect's capture and return to face charges in Peru.

"I cannot say that I was happy," brother Enrique Flores told CNN's Rafael Romo. "I feel a little relief in this pain that I have and that my family has. This pain that won't go away ... We want this action not to happen again."

Stephany's sister-in-law Carolina Jorge was more outspoken.

"We need justice for our family, for Natalee's family," she said.

Stephany's father, Ricardo, was more wistful and philosophical.

"My daughter had everything in life," the businessman and race car driver said. "Perhaps my error was to show her the pretty side of the world. I didn't show her that there was the other side to the world -- the evilness."

The family said they thought Stephany had been abducted until authorities found her body. Her burial was Thursday.

Van der Sloot's former attorney, Joseph Tacopina, told CNN it was too early to reach any conclusions.

"I just think we need to take a step back before we get to the 'I told you so' stage, and let's see what the evidence is here," Tacopina said Thursday.

Tacopina said he is not representing van der Sloot and no longer has a good relationship with the family.

Van der Sloot also faces an arrest warrant on charges of extortion and wire fraud in Alabama, U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance said Thursday. The charges are unrelated to the killing of the Peruvian woman and deal with an attempt to sell details about Holloway for $250,000, Vance said.

Van der Sloot, 23, was traveling alone in a taxi near the Chilean central coastal city of Vina del Mar Thursday when he was detained, said Douglas Rodriguez, spokesman for the Chilean Investigative Police.

TV images showed him emerging from a black police SUV at the police station. His hair, which had been dark in previous images, was red and worn in a close-cropped crew cut.

There is "incriminating evidence" linking van der Sloot to the killing of Flores, said Peruvian criminal investigator Cesar Guardia Vasquez.

The woman's bludgeoned body was found in Room 309 of the Hotel Tac in the Miraflores section of Lima, police said. She suffered blunt trauma to the head, breaking her neck, and to her torso and back, Peruvian police said Thursday.

Van der Sloot had been staying at the hotel since arriving from Colombia on May 14, police said. Room 309 was booked in his name, authorities said.

A hotel guest and an employee witnessed the pair entering the hotel room together at 5 a.m. Sunday, Guardia said. Police have video of van der Sloot and Flores together the previous night at the Atlantic City Casino in Lima, he said.

Two Peruvian cab drivers said in an interview on CNN affiliate America TV that they drove a man matching van der Sloot's description to a city on the other side of the Chilean border.

"He paid me and I took him to Arica, to the border," cab driver Oswaldo Aparcana said.

The man sat in the front seat and smoked many cigarettes, Aparcana said. The passenger told the cabbies he used to live in Aruba, said the other driver, Carlos Alberto Uribe.

Holloway, the Alabama teenager, disappeared May 30, 2005, five years to the day since the hotel videotape that officials say showed van der Sloot and Flores going into his hotel room. Both women are reported to have met van der Sloot at a night spot.

Ricardo Flores said police found his daughter's car about 50 blocks from the hotel. Inside the car, he said, authorities found pills like those used in date rapes.

Ricardo Flores said he did not believe his daughter knew the Dutch citizen beforehand.

Both of them speak English and they struck up conversation at the casino, he said.

Interpol had alerted its office in Chile and other bordering countries of the case and placed them on alert in case van der Sloot tried to leave that country, Peruvian Interpol Interim Director Gerson Ortiz told CNN.

Van der Sloot was arrested in Aruba in 2005 along with two other men, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, in connection with Holloway's disappearance. They were later released.

In 2007, they were arrested a second time after Aruba's then-chief prosecutor, Hans Mos, said he had received new evidence in the case.

Van der Sloot, who was attending college in the Netherlands, was brought back to Aruba. But judges ruled the new evidence -- which included an Internet chat the same day Holloway disappeared in which one of the three youths said she was dead -- was not enough to keep them jailed.

In 2008, prosecutors sought unsuccessfully to arrest van der Sloot a third time after a videotape surfaced on Dutch television. In it, van der Sloot tells a man he considered to be his friend that he had sex with Holloway on the beach after leaving the nightclub, then she "started shaking" and lost consciousness. He said he panicked when he could not resuscitate her and called a friend who had a boat. The two put Holloway's body in the boat, he said, and then he went home. The friend told him the next day that he had carried the body out and dumped it in the ocean.

But an Aruba court ruled there was not enough evidence to re-arrest him. Aruban prosecutors said authorities had met with van der Sloot in the Netherlands, but in a two-hour interview he denied any role in Holloway's disappearance.
