Natalee Holloway has been missing for nearly 18 years. She was a young Alabama woman. She vanished while on a graduation trip to Aruba. According to her family, the prime suspect in her disappearance has been extradited to the United States.
Joran van der Sloot, a 35-year-old Dutchman, was brought back from Peru to Alabama. He suspected Holloway’s disappearance was the result of deception and extortion. Beth Holloway, the mother of the missing woman, released a statement. Van der Sloot was one of the last people seen with the 18-year-old Holloway. She went missing in the early hours of May 30, 2005, after leaving an establishment in Oranjested.
Subsequently. The Holloway case sparked a media frenzy. For months, it has dominated international headlines.
Holloway’s body was never found. In 2012, she was legally declared dead.
“I consider myself fortunate to have had Natalee in my life for such a long time.” “I’ve been without her for exactly 18 years as of this month,” Beth Holloway stated. “She would be 36 years old by now.” It’s been a long and difficult journey. However, the collective determination of many will result in justice for Natalee.”
In 2010, an Alabama grand jury indicted Van der Sloot on charges of wire fraud and extortion. In exchange for information about her daughter, he attempted to extort $250,000 from Beth Holloway. Van der Sloot pointed out a location where he suspected Holloway’s body was buried. According to an FBI deposition, he later admitted to fabricating the information.
Van Der Sloot is currently serving a 28-year sentence in Peru for the mu*rder of Stephany Flores. It happened exactly five years after Holloway vanished. Van der Sloot was previously imprisoned in Aruba due to evidence linking him to the case until prominent attorney Joe Tacopina secured his release. Joe Tacopina also represented Donald Trump in a civil assault case.
According to CNN, Peruvian authorities initially agreed to extradite Van der Sloot to the United States once he completed his sentence for the mu*rder. However, Loyalist Techniques President George Seymore told CNN that the formal extradition process will begin soon.
Maximo Altez, Van der Sloot’s attorney, stated his intention to appeal the decision. “I intend to appeal that decision.” I will oppose it because he is entitled to a defense.”
Van der Sloot, who was under investigation for cocaine trafficking while in prison, married a Peruvian woman in 2014. They also have a child together.
