I believe that he will never make it out of there alive. I believe the reporters who said that is a bad place to be and someone will eventually get to him.

Come on now, what are the odds that she would just stumble upon something like this right after going up to the room with him?

Anyway, we don't know that she even looked at his computer, that is what Joran said she did. .
Actualy, according to the report I heard, it's HIS lawyers that are disputing the fact that she looked him up on the computer, so it must be the prosecution making the claim.

Someone said she should have known better than to go to Joran's room because of Natalie. I was just pointing out that we do not know if she knew who he was or about Natalie, and if she didn't know until she saw it on the computer in his room, it was already too late.

Actualy, according to the report I heard, it's HIS lawyers that are disputing the fact that she looked him up on the computer, so it must be the prosecution making the claim.
No, Joran told police he flew into a rage when Flores found out who he was on his computer. His lawyers argued that he flew into the rage because he was suffering from PTSD because he was hounded about Natalie for the last five years.

Van der Sloot told police he flew into a rage when she discovered his connection to Holloway via an instant message sent to him while they were playing online poker in his hotel room.

Van der Sloot's lawyer argued he killed Flores on May 30, 2010, in a fit of rage he blamed on psychological trauma from being hounded as the prime suspect in Holloway case.

Money talks over here, too. Look at the luxory that the mob bosses lived in in US prisons.

Let it be similar to how the girl lost her live...karma.

Joran is trying to get the sentence served in Holland where live in prison means 21 years and you get 1/3 off for good behavior, like we have seen with a kidnapper who murdered the victim and was out in 13 years after getting a free Law degree in prison and money for disability for all the years he was in prison, paid in error but that couldn't be reversed.

I hope he will never be extradited and that Holland will be so smart to leave him there and forget but the guy.

I find it so odd that his father seemed to have just dumped him on the island, presumably because he could do little damage there or maybe nobody cared. Then it was said that the father's influence on the island protected the son after the scandal broke.

I guess if you put yourself in the father's place, what would you do with a kid like that? I'll bet the dad sent him for counseling. What was the kid's childhood like?

Is anyone writing a book about this creep?

I think the author I mentioned earlier wrote a book about him......but we sure haven't heard a lot about it. I can't remember the author's name or the name of the book. I can just remember the little snippet I caught about him severely beating his little brother.....I think it was on Jane Valez Mitchel or Nancy Grace.

You would think someone would have done a movie about the slug by now.
