Who is Joran van der Sloot?
Joran van der Sloot was one of the last people to see American teen Natalee Holloway alive in Aruba in 2005.
Van der Sloot, a Dutch national, was found guilty in 2012 of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in his hotel room in Lima and received a 28-year prison term.
In connection with a scheme to sell knowledge of the location of Holloway’s remains in exchange for $250,000, he has been indicted in the US on federal counts of extortion and wire fraud.

According to the indictment, Beth Holloway, the mother of the missing 18-year-old, wired $15,000 to van der Sloot’s Dutch bank account and personally gave him another $10,000. Van der Sloot allegedly showed John Kelly, the lawyer, where Natalee Holloway’s supposed remains were hidden after receiving the initial $25,000, but the information turned out to be untrue, according to the indictment.
Van der Sloot’s accusation demands that he surrender $25,100, including $100. Van der Sloot was initially sent to by Beth Holloway in order to verify his account.
In the early hours of May 30, 2005, Holloway and van der Sloot were last seen leaving a nightclub in Aruba. She vanished without a trace, and her body has never been located. In 2012, a judge in Alabama issued an order deeming Holloway legally dead.
