One could almost feel sorry for Joran Van der Sloot if the evidence didn’t point so clearly to him murdering young Stephany Flores Ramírez in Peru. It is still up in the air whether he had a hand in Natalee Holloway’s demise. Now, he is saying that he was tricked by officials into confessing to the Ramírez murder.
According to a CNN report the autopsy did show blunt force trauma to her head, and signs of affixation, plus she had been on amphetamines.
But what is more astounding, is there was a “psychological evaluation” done on Mr. Van der Sloot which reveals these things about him:
- low tolerance for frustration
- does not value the female role
- contradiction sends him into a “challenging mode”
- “emotionally immature” which sends him out of control
- exerts dominance over females
- anti-social behavior traits
- doesn’t exhibit care for “others’ well-being”
- seems to recognize reality (no pathological traits that would impede the process
He told a Dutch reporter that he was told if he signed all the papers put in front of him that he would be transferred to the Netherlands. He said, “in blind panic I signed everything but didn’t know what the papers said.”
In his confession, he had told officials that he had elbowed Stephany in the face before he suffocated her with his shirt.
Van der Sloot stated in his confession, according to the CNN report, “There was blood everywhere,” van der Sloot said in the transcripts. “What am I going to do now? I had blood on my shirt. There was also blood on the bed, so, I took my shirt and put it on her face, pressing hard, until I killed Stephany.”
Such a remarkable correlation to what her body told pathologists during the autopsy, isn’t it?
Now, he has a different story. He is now saying that robbers were waiting for him when he got back to the room and they killed her.
The police force in Peru say they have “overwhelming evidence that he committed” this murder. I believe the evidence. I've watched enough Forensics Files to know beyond doubt that the smallest of evidence can bring down the largest of criminals.
I believe God has answered the prayers of Natalee Holloway’s family in that her murderer has now been caught.
