Posted: 07:00 PM ET

Joran Van der Sloot is accused of killing Stephany Flores in Peru. Police say he confessed.  Her family tells Larry what they know about her death.  Does Van der Sloot have answers about the Natalee Holloway’s disappearance that could keep him out of a notorious Peruvian prison?

Plus! Jennifer Lopez lived a parent’s nightmare!  How she turned it into triumph for children who need it most.

And! The latest on the Gulf oil disaster.

We want to hear from YOU!

Should Joran be kept in a Peruvian
prison or sent home to Aruba?

What happens in Peru, should stay in a Peruvian Prison.!!
Joran is charged for the murder of Stephannie Flores. That is it!!!
Jvds is a habitual LIAR. Wait till this sentence is finished (20-35 years)Let this scumbag think of what he did! This sub-human has no moral compass.
When he is free from Peru in 2035, he can then do the time in the Caribbean Tourist Island of Aruba .After all he is only a "murder-suspect"..
If he is raped or killed, I DON'T CARE. What goes around Comes
AROUND. Get use to the prison food. Jvds.!

My prayers to the two families of 2 lovely beautiful ladies.
To the Holloways" You know in your heart your daughter is
gone by the hands of Jvds.~ Forget Closure~ Justice in Peru !!

Send him back to Aruba? Aww! Why don't we just pat him on the back, say good boy, and send him home?

Cathy Downing   June 16th, 2010 8:30 pm ET

Joran should be kept in the Peruvian prison where he committed the crime and not sent home to Aruba. He doesn't need family and friends treating him like royalty. He needs to stay in Peri and pay for what he did ALONE!

justanonymous   June 16th, 2010 8:30 pm ET

Let him serve his time in Peru for his crime in Peru (35 years)

then extradite him to Aruba

Have him serve his time in Aruba for his crime in Aruba (life)

then extradite him to the US

Have him serve his time in the US for his crimes in the US (15 yrs)

jack   June 16th, 2010 8:58 pm ET

This young man had so many things going for him. I suppose arrogance, pampering , and a cruel streak twisted him. Now he has thrown his life away. He is obviously a very impulsive person. The advantages he grew up with seems to have turned into a disadvantage. If he is guilty of two murders I think he should be given a life sentence. He should be treated humanely, but made to do hard labor, and produce. I am not sure why they did away with prison farms and such. Today labor intensive, organic farming would be good for the prisoner as well as provide good food for the populace. If he is released into the general population of that Puruvian prison, it will be a living nightmare, unless he can bribe the right people. What a waste for a young man who had such great expectations.

Diane Castle   June 16th, 2010 9:00 pm ET

Keep him in the worst cell with the worst criminals in Peru. If he is still alive after his sentence is served, send him to Aruba to serve time for killing Natalie!

RickFromDetroit   June 16th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

When the banks failed due to their own mistakes, the US Government bailed them out.
If BP fails and files for bankruptcy, will we bail them out? name required....   June 16th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

My opinion is that he should be kept in the Peruvian prison. He did the crime in Peru so therefore, he should serve his time there. Aruba should not be involved, for that is another case to be dealt with later.

Smith in Oregon   June 16th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

No Republican President nor any Republican lawmaker has ever stood up with the strength and courage that President Obama showed he has in abundance today in demanding that BP pony up 20 Billion dollars into a private escrow fund to begin immediate payments on Gulf Oil spill claims.

CNN is asking, 'is it enough'. Perhaps not, but that is 20 Billion dollars which the Republican lawmakers would have stuck the American taxpayers with!

Both John Boehner and Mitch McConnell Republican minority speakers of the US Senate and Congress stated repeatedly including last week that Federal Govt. AND BP should BOTH pay the price of cleanup. Some fiscal responsibility Republican minority leaders, that smacks of utter hypocrisy pure and simple.

President Obama just saved American taxpayers 20 Billion dollars and those Republican minority leaders denied workers unemployment benefits over far less over 'fiscal responsibility'. Good to see Republican hypocrisy in action isn't it?

BP is fully lawyered up, Federal Gas and Oil laws written by Republican lawmakers over many decades are extremely lax and soft on liability claims and monetary settlements. A FULL 50% of the Gulf Coast Federal Judges election campaigns were funded by Big Oil and selected by Republican leaders. US Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts placed into Office by Bush jr. is clearly a friend of Big Oil and recently tossed out a 19 year old liability claim against Exxon over the Exxon Valdez Oil spill.

President Obama was fully aware of those extremely long odds of judicial pressure against BP paying fully paying for the Gulf Oil spill. However, President Obama took on BP with strength and courage and pressured BP into placing the largest liability amount ever received at anytime in American history into a escrow account on behalf of the victims of the BP Gulf Oil spill.

Michelle Bachman and other Republican leaders today rushed to BP's defense with their psycho-babble that this escrow account makes it easier to file phoney claims and 'fleece' BP. Right, and you expect the American public to feel sympathy for your special interests!

M Stark   June 16th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

The man is a murder and a suspect in the Natalie Holloway case. Aruba has obviously protected the man for five years why Americans still visit the place is beyond me. The only punishment fitting a monster like him is death. The jerk will never confess (or provide) the truth as to what happened to her.

Kim Jones   June 16th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

Chances are that he will get what he deserves in a Peruvian jail. Let him feel the same pain that his victims had to suffer.

john doe   June 16th, 2010 9:15 pm ET

This "WUSS" took 2 lives!!! 1 life to live, Only 1 life to "GIVE"!!! LET him ROT!!! THINK about the "VICTIM'S"!!! NOT the ANIMAL!!! USA is the way!!! THIS IS NOT THE WAY!!!"YOU JUST BEEN BLOGABOOED"!!!

Mae of LA   June 16th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Let him be entombed in a Peruvian prison, to rot and think of the 2 ladies he sent to their tombs early.
Proof, you can run BUT you can't hide from God.

M   June 16th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Let's get real, Anderson has become an activist and not a reporter on the BP issue. And quite frankly, as someone who travels the globe searching out the next disaster to voice outrage about, he has a large carbon footprint. Imagine if the entire world shared his jet fuel requirements, oil would be $200 a barrel and air quality globally would be on par with China. BP would be out of their mind to go on with Anderson or whomever who share Anderson's above average carbon consumption uses 50%+ of their program to bash them.

jack   June 16th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

Yes, Peru has an airtight case against him. If he serves out his term in Peru, then let Aruba have him. If they do nothing or he is not convicted, then send him to US to be tried for the extortion charge. Between the three, it should keep him from murdering other innocent young women. Condolences to the families of both young women Such a tragedy that they encountered the psychopath when their lives were just getting into adulthood.

B J Fortman   June 16th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

Joran should be kept in the Peruvian prison and not sent back to
Aruba. He should be tried in Peru and sentenced to prison in
Peru. Thank you.

Raul   June 16th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

I cant even comment on this guy its so gross to lose sympathy for another human is beyond any i mean any leaniancy what so ever!

beth   June 16th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

He should be kept in prison in Peru to stand trial for the killing of the young Peruvian woman. If convicted, he should remain there.

This sociopath has had (5) years to come clean to the Arubian authorities & to bring some measure of comfort to the Holloway/Twitty families. Instead he has laughed at them & shown absolutely no remorse or compassion for their loss & suffering. I am saddened to say I don't believe they are ever going to have closure on the loss of their daughter.

My prayers go out to the families of both of these girls & I pray that Joran receives the justice that he has so long evaded.

Mike Masishin   June 16th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Send him home. The evidence is overwhelming. Conviction is certain but the penalty will never be realized if they place him in a Peruvian prison. They will kill him. He can serve a full sentence in a Aruban prison and be a very old, broken man when he ends his time.

tim   June 16th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

whats it matter,he will get firing squad anyways,why waste time.the guy is a animal.

Kathy in Texas   June 16th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

This total Psycho is "scared" in a Peruvian Jail? Give me a break! I say he needs to be put in with the general population in the jail & let some of them torture him & kill him very slowly! Back to Aruba? No way! This monster has taken 2 lives that we know of. It's hilarious that now "he's scared." What about his victims! As far as I'm concerned, ANY U.S. Citizen that travels to Aruba for pleasure, might as well be committing Treason! God will get you one way or another!! He proved that with Daddy dropping dead. God Bless the Families that have been traumatized by this Psycho Loser.

joan   June 16th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

He should stay in Peru

Wayne   June 16th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

Tough choice....potential closure for the Holloway family or jail in Peru...I think I would opt for Joran to remain in Peru.

Bob Bruce   June 16th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

I agree that Van der Sloot should only eat the same food that prison official eat...but only after they have eaten it.

luisa   June 16th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Joran van de sloot should be kept in a Peruvian prison.
He deserves to be in the prison labeled as "the worst of the worst"

Smith in Oregon   June 16th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

The entire goal and point of the Holloway Family and their Private Investigator's scam to ensnare and entrap van der Sloot into a federal wiretap fraud charge was to use that charge to pressure van der Sloot into confessing as to the location of the bones of the Holloway daughter.

All of this now existing 'we'll put you in some hellish Peruvian prison' is simply an extension of the Holloway puppeteers in pressuring van der Sloot into revealing the Holloway daughters final resting place.

Meanwhile, Media News should be investigating the Holloway Family and their Fox News and other Media fund raisers who helped them put that failed PI scam together which directly enabled the murder of a young Peruvian woman.

CNN, who was paying the fee's all these years for the Holloway Family Private Investigator (5 YEARS!), was it Fox News, Nancy Grace, or some other Media fund raiser?

mouchie   June 16th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

leave him in that peruvian hell hole. let him rot in there for what he did to those 2 beautiful young ladies.and hopefully one of those hardened criminals will serve him justice.

Gail   June 16th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

I doubt he will ever get back to Aruba.After he serves his time in Peru . He probibly will belong to US for extortion charges 50 years. so if he ever gets out of prison alive. he will be wearing adult diapers by then.

Smith in Oregon   June 16th, 2010 9:39 pm ET

How involved is the News Media outlets in funding van der Sloot the funds he used to travel to Peru and murder a young woman there?

Linda in Arizona   June 16th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

What was the REASON? He's a psychopath. He likes to pound young women to a pulp until they die. You're looking for a "reason"?

Chaney, La.   June 16th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

My heart goes out to this family, Van der Sloot is a sociopath, he has no concience, and I felt like he would be involved in another killing after natalie, and that it would be his undoing. I am sorry that this had to happen.

Cindy   June 16th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

I think no prisoners should be treated the way Peruvian prisoners are treated. I agree with Jack's earlier comments; it's always sad to see anyone throw his/her life away like this and beyond sad that other lives are lost in the process.

Jeniffer----texas   June 16th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Why did Stephany Flores have a last name of Ramarez ??? Was she married????????????????????

Jeannette   June 16th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

What happen with the tonight show with Jennifer Lopez? I been waiting all week to watch this show all you have been taking is about Joran Van Der Sloot.

Doug   June 16th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Keep him in Peru and let him rot. No special treatment, and if he is killed so be it

Jeniffer----texas   June 16th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

How can this be first degree murder???? Joran wasn't that stupid to plan to kill her IN HIS ROOM??????

anne dubin   June 16th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

I'm glad you are helping to raise money for the Gilf people who are
hurting now but please advise how you will manage to get it
\to the right people. We Americans want to help each other but without
a proper distribution network they may face the same delays that
they might have with BPs Escrow money.
Can you tell your audience how we will know if our contributions
will get to the people who are without pay checks IN A TIMELY
Thanks vefry much.
I want to help but need to understand this.

Ronald Dauphin   June 16th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

This Predator should remain In Peru were he murdered this young lady. I wish he get what he deserves in this country.I feel for the Hollaway family also but hope they never let him negotiate to get back to Aruba.

mika sid.   June 16th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

Hello Larry:
From what I'm hearing about the Lima, Peru prison, I can Not think of a better place of Ms. Halloway's killer; hope he enjoys his stay there.

john   June 16th, 2010 9:48 pm ET


klaasend   June 16th, 2010 9:49 pm ET

Peru or hell, whichever is the most painful for him.

obxlover   June 16th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Peru isn't going to let Joran be extradited to Aruba. Not a chance in hell.
Joran can dream about whatever he wants, but this will be his nightmare.
He deserves whatever happens in a Peru prison.
IF he survives his sentence in Peru, he will be extradited to the US and tried for murder there for Natalee, IMO. If that fails move on to extortion. He will not be free to walk our streets EVER!
Let us not forget the influence Mr. Flores has in Peru. And he makes not qualms about getting justice for Natalee's family if it is at all possible.

Ronald Dauphin   June 16th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

This young man is nothing but a spoiled rotten lazy non working killer.Some of these comments are disgusting to read.Keep him in Peru with the hardcore thugs. Let's see him get angry with men.

ANTON   June 16th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Hello,he should stay in their jail..nothing more..

jack   June 16th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

I think prisons like the one Van der Sloot is going to be in should be turned into more humane places. Just being there appears to be cruel and inhumane punishment. Having said that, the dispicable nature of Van der Sloot's crimes, hardly warrants him to be given better treatment than the average prisoner. They should have outside farm programns, where the prisoners can work, and be productive in the open air, under guard. The food produced could be given to public food programs ,and help support the prison. Having huge overcrowded prisons, with throngs of hardened criminals milling around with rapings and killings going on is a disgrace.

K. Stone   June 16th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

I have watched Joran since the beginning. I read Beth Hollaway's book. My comment when it hit the news this time 'he's back!' Do not send him back to Aruba until he is finished in Peru. This time there is evidence, do not let him lie his way out of it this time. He is a pathalogical lier and he will kill again. He thinks he is above the law especially when his father was alive. He helped Joran beat the system – he abused the system with his position as a lawyer. Aruba couldn't hold him. Joran is trying to buy time. I have faith that Stephany's father has enough power in Lima that justice will finally be served. If there were other people in the room to rob Joran why are they not on the security cameras???? I was worried Peru did not have the death penalty but now I know about their is a much better system.

Bill Stern   June 16th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

Of course he should be kept in Peru. Although I feel deeply for the Holloway family, the police in Aruba have shown the world their ineptitude, and if sent there, he will never pay for his crime in Peru. Let him stay there until he either serves his time, or is, as some think, fails to survive his time in prison. In either case, he is getting his just desserts. Hell in prison while alive, and hell for real when he is dead.

RickFromDetroit   June 16th, 2010 9:59 pm ET

Something puzzles me about the Van Der Sloot case. It is just too simple and the entire case looks like it was rehearsed before being filmed.

marvin watson   June 16th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Keep him there in Peru. Whatever horror he experiences in that prison will be justice for what he put those innocent girls through.

V.M.J   June 16th, 2010 10:02 pm ET

Sorry, I think that anyone intterested in human rights would say he should be sent to Aruba where maybe Beth and Dave Holloway can finally get the body of their daughter and give her a proper buriel. On the human rights, well I dont care how much someone disgusts you, wishing them dead, ill, or to spend time in a jail in Peru is a death sentence. Peru is a corrupt nation (7th most corrupt world wide). If anyone thinks this guys gonna get a fair trial they are on some serious LSD.
I see alot of people acting out emotionally on what they think should happen, but little with common sense or critical thinking skills that could see this would be advantageous to Aruba and the US to get Joran out of Peru. If he lies again, then by all means send hm back. But wishing conditions that will likely kill someone through disease or violence is no better then what Joran did in my opinion. It amazes me to see people willing to say what a slime he is for killing someone, yet all for having human rights being violated, and even cheering Peru for having the worst prisons in the world.

Roberta   June 16th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Joran Van der Sloot should be sent back to Aruba after he serves his time in Peru for murdering Ms. Flores. Peru can send him back to Aruba, living or dead, but he should be sent back to the Arubans.

John   June 16th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

I think Joran should be returned to Aruba.

B. Drew   June 16th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

Joran Van der Sloot should definitely do his prison time in Peru where the crime was committed. Unfortunately he is a socio-path and cannot be let out into the public ever again. We already know that he killed the young girl in Aruba – so after prison time in Peru then send him to Aruba or Holland (if he is still alive) to complete another life sentence. We only know of the two murders – he must have a history of other bad and/or strange things that he has done that only his parents are aware of. I hope the other inmates don't kill him because Joran needs to suffer for the rest of his life.

jack   June 16th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

Seems to me , if that prison is as bad as it is potrayed to be, a quick death might be a far better alternative. It is sad that they can't provide better treatment than that. Not saying that people who have committed hideous crimes such as Van der Sloot should be pampered. But there are standards of humane treatment that should be applied to even the worst of criminals. Contrasted with his former life of high living, it would still be no cake walk for him. He apparently chose the wrong place to turn psycho, this time. May the families of his victims find peace.

obxlover   June 16th, 2010 10:23 pm ET

If Joran goes back to Aruba, he will not spend 1 day in jail. That's a given.
Nope, he serves his sentence in Peru and the next flight he takes will be to the good old US of A. We have an extradition treaty with Peru, whereas Aruba does not.

Emma B.   June 16th, 2010 10:26 pm ET

He did the crime in Peru, so he needs to pay for his crime in Peru's worst prison!

obxlover   June 16th, 2010 10:27 pm ET

Joran the killer gave up his rights when he killed 2 young beautiful
law abiding women. He didn't care about their rights to live.
He is pond scum......rot in hell Joran!

It's mind blowing that Aruba would even want a killer living on their island.
Their tourist income will dry up like the desert.

DONNA ARENA   June 16th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Joran should be keep in a prison in Peru. This way the other Peruvian criminals will take care of him!!

AnnA   June 16th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Peru where the crime was committed. There is no extradition treaty and for a crime this serious it is the Peruvian society to which he owes the sentence he is likely to receive.

Aruba refused to collect evidence in his crimes there. Peru has really shown Aruba for the corrupt system that it is.

I hope Peru goes for the life sentence as provided under their judicial system. This sociopath needs to be kept locked away so he can't kill anybody else.

angie   June 16th, 2010 10:39 pm ET

He should be kept in the country that did what needed to be done to get him off the street. Aruba had their chance.. over and over again. This didn't have to happen a second time.

Roberta   June 16th, 2010 10:41 pm ET

Karma is a funny thing. What goes around comes around and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. As far as I'm concerned justice will not be served until Joran pays for what he has done and I believe his parents should be tried right along side of him for Natalie Halloway. Both his mother and father knew their son committed a murder and as a family they have conspired to get rid of the body, the evidence and anything that could link them. As far as I'm concerned, Dad is dead and there are 2 more to go before justice has been served for the murder of Natalie Halloway.

Haydee Ruiz   June 16th, 2010 11:37 pm ET

This young man should be made accountable for his actions. He should do his time in Peru and if and when he comes out alive he should face justice in Aruba. He should do his time!

SHAY22   June 17th, 2010 12:21 am ET

I believe Joran van der Sloot is being set up somehow... i think he actually is a victim of character assissnation, which explains his behavior and addictions. I truly feel there is much more to this case in Peru than we all know. I believe a lot of money was involved into framing this or setting this up somehow. I will wait to make my judgement but I do not trust Peru officials and question there credibility. They are among the top most corrupt places on this planet. I just feel that someone wants revenge, i will refrain from saying who, with their connections to FBI/CIA, money and respected, made sure to screw Joran over.

Video cameras are very easy to tamper with and especially in a place like Peru. All the evidence they allegedly have is absolutely outrageous. 5 yrs to the day? And with Natalee there was not a trace of evidence but this time its ridiculous the evidence they have. Only time will tell, but i truly believe there is WAY MORE going on then what we know.

I believe how ever he can work a deal for him, that he should. Only God can judge him and we should leave that to him. I know the case here os horrific but even if Joran is guilty, I do not think he should stay in the Peru prison. No matter what has truly happened, we should not be the judge to take his life, regardless.

Let him and the attorneys work it how they can. If he can go to Aruba, then take him there... there is NO WAY Aruba is just going to let him go

SHAY22   June 17th, 2010 12:28 am ET

@SMITH IN OREGON: I completely agree with you, i been saying this the whole time.

Sarah F   June 17th, 2010 12:29 am ET

my questions on the BP's 20Billion victim fund is – who is responsible for paying the company in charge of dispersing the funds on the victims claims? Is this being taken out of the 20 billion BP is supposed to put in escrow? If so, should BP not be responsible to pay these costs instead of it being the responsibility of the victims? Haven't these poor people suffered enough?

Denise   June 17th, 2010 12:30 am ET

In 2006 WE in the Gulf of Mexico — Every 17 seconds, a small armada of ships trawling 130 miles from the Louisiana coast fire powerful air guns toward the bottom of the sea in a hunt for the next big oil discovery. Is this going to continue around the world. Where is the focus to stop all of this and have our existance continue just a little longer. Who ALLOWS such techmiques for searching for oil. Does No one feel the need to HELP save our earth. WHERE is AL Gore????????

jeg   June 17th, 2010 12:31 am ET

No, Van der Sloot should remain in Peru. Apparently they have the expertise needed to keep criminals, who belong in custody, where they belong. Not like Aruban legal system. He has made statements that further convince us he is a sociopathic murderer. Peru prison sounds like theperfect place for him.

Denise   June 17th, 2010 12:32 am ET

Where is Al Gore on ou Earth???

Jack Slim   June 17th, 2010 12:33 am ET

This man should go where he deserves. A nice big comfortable building that houses criminals punished in a court of law, is a wasted cost. This man should go where he was convicted and where the crime was committed. This is because his crimes affect those people.

Kat   June 17th, 2010 12:37 am ET

I think Joran Van Der Sloot should be kept in Peru and he should spend his time in prison in Peru. And I think he should stop getting special treatment in Miguel Castro Castro. He is in prison for murder . He should be treated like the other prisoners there. He shouldnt be getin special treatment. What is this he gets to go in a waiting area where he can work out, He could watch tv, drink soda and he gets to eat the same food as the people that work there. Oh my he commited a crime. And he should have thought about it before he killed Stephany Flores. He knew what he was doing. He was in need of money. He has been watching Stephany for a while. He knew that she had won 10,000 dollars and other winnings. So he decided to befriend her so he could rob her of her money. They went to the hotel he tryed to rob her telling her to give him all her money Stephany refused he hit her and killed her with anger and rage all because Stephany wouldnt give him the money He should pay for what he did. He had no remorse for her. He didnt care that Stephany Flores was a daughter, a sister, a niece, granddaughter etc. They are treating him like some celebrity in Miguel Castro Castro. He should be integrated with the other prisoners. He is been treated like a king there. Even after he commits a crime of murder he is been treated good. He wants you to do that. There are other people in Miguel Castro Castro who are there for murder and are not getting treated how Joran Van Der Sloot is been treated. He should experience prison life to the fullest. He deserves it after what he has done. He should pay not get rewarded.

Larry   June 17th, 2010 12:41 am ET

If you are going to play you will have to pay the piper. He has done his deed now he will have to pay, No breaks !!


Peggy   June 17th, 2010 12:42 am ET

Van Der Sloot is getting what he deserves. For him to be in the prison in Peru is justice. It is suppose to be the worst prison in the world. He is a killer and maybe he will get his just dues.

Pedro (not real name for protection)   June 17th, 2010 12:45 am ET

Larry, pay close attention to my message. I was in a Juarez City prision (Chihuahua, Mexico). I was accused of raping my employee (not true of course). I lived inside the prision in Juarez for 5 months and 21 days; in the "prision inside the prision" section of the alledged rapists and molesters. Of course I was innocent... and we estimate that 80-90% of the accused there are as well. You want to know about this, if it is honest your reaction about the 25 by 30 cells with 35 inmates. Well, I was in a 5 by 7 (feet) jailcell with 28 other accused. If you are surprised about Peru being civilized and having this conditions, talk to me. You have no idea, no idea whatsoever what is going on in the border with my beloved USA. There was a law in Chihuahua that acted against people who were merely pointed at by anyone with the molestation or rape or sexual misconduct accusation; the "Judicial" officers would arrest you while your accuser would have absouletly every opportunity, chance, time to steal all your belongings, blackmail you into signing all your belongings to "her" or "him", and ruin your present life. Larry, get in touch with me. If that lawyer that visited you today shocked you, I will make you cry. I was in hell. And I saw, ate, spoke and survided interacting with one thousand demons each and every day of those months.

Kat   June 17th, 2010 12:52 am ET

And I dont buy one bit that he is scared at all. He is just acting. This guy called Joran Van Der Sloot has no feelings at all. He has no heart. You dont know how many people he has killed while has has traveled all over the world. All he wants is tto get famous even in the worse possible way. He is a liar. Which Im surprise are people are buying his lies. His confessions are all pure lies. How he confessed what happened that day never happened There was no email at all he made up this lie that she was looking at his computer found out he had something to do with the disappearance of Natalie Holloway and that wanted to leave and she hit him and he totally lost it after that. He planned to bring her to his hotel. Not to play poker online with Stephany. His real motive was to rob her of her $10,000 winning and of the other winnings of different amounts. He was broke. He lost all of is money he got out of Natalie Holloways mom. He was desperate for money. He was willing to do anything. This 22 year old had no remorse when he was killing her he badly hit her to the point where you couldnt recognize her.

I think the dance is over. It's time to pay the piper. Jorans killing and arrogance has come to a end. he must face the degradation of his deeds. he should stay in Peru. He as escaped the long arm of the law
in Aruba do to corruption. Peru is a no meal deal. The rest is karma.

Chris   June 17th, 2010 12:56 am ET

Aruba for sure! He's barely an adult. As long as he serves the time, is the point. I don't believe in torturing youth. The stories thus far are sketchy with Peru police leaking info. (correct or not) etc.... Not a fair chance from day one!

Dina   June 17th, 2010 12:59 am ET

If the Peruvian Prisons resemble Hell, and are not fit for an Animals nor Humans, then they are PERFECT for Joran, as he is a DEMON. I hope the prisoners that kill him do it SLOOOOOOOWLY. What an idiot if he thinks the Peruvian Government will take their open and shut case and trade it to see Joran go back to Aruba so daddy's friends can get him off again. This guy thinks he is so smart, THE PARTY'S OVER ,JORAN, "THE MORON" !

He should serve the maximum time of 35 years in prison. But I do hope he finallly gives in and tells what really happened to Natalie Holloway. No more lies but the pure truth of what happened that night after they left Carlos N' Charlie. And then he should serve time for that and serve time for extortion and fruad. He should be kept in prison for the rest of his life. He didnt care it was going to ruin his life his future. There was no need to have killed Stephany Flores.

Kat   June 17th, 2010 1:18 am ET

And read the bottom of this comment this is what Joran Van Der Sloot put in a dating website. Apparately the whole Natalie Holloway didnt get to him. He lived a normal life that consisted of partying, drinking, doing drugs, gambling and traveling. But people should investigate real close to see if there has been any murder around the time he spend in each country. And apparently he never retired because til the day he meet Stephany he was seen gambling throwing away his money. Wow it doesnt seem like he retired from playing poker. And why would he put up a dating ad on a dating site knowing who would date him knoing his history. What were his intentions with the girls he meet online ? Because now in these days you use the internet to look up about someone and everyone who would have searched his name would have come up with the dissappearance of Natalie Holloway. He doesnt care if hurts so many people. If you look into his eyes there is some evil in him. Imagine if he wasnt caught would he have continued murdering girls.
My name is Joran van der Sloot and I am a poker player and entrepreneur.Im looking to meet new people and make friends, who knows more...I am 22 years old, I attended Rangsit University and now have a coffee shop / snack bar across the International College in Rangsit. I work there everyday and we serve everything from drinks to baguetts, croisants, bagels and comming soon pizzas. I have been in thailand now for two years but only speak a little thai. I speak English, Dutch, Papiamento, and a little Spanish. I have travelled all over asia and europe the past 2 years while finishing my studies and right now have no time to travel because I am to busy with the shop. I was born in the netherlands but when I was 2 years old moved to the Caribbean and grew up there on a small island. I like good movies, music, hanging out and going to the clubs but havent had much time for that recently either. I think their is a lesson to be learned in every path you decide to take in your life but one thing I am sure of is that you need to stand up for what you believe in and what you want to do and you will be successful in your life. I do not have a real job but am a professional poker player I have been playing poker since way before the poker boom and consider myself to have a huge advantage over most players. I also give poker lessons as well as advice about poker hands and strategy. I love card games and use to be a proffesional card player from my 16th until my 21st birthday but am now retired from that it is to much stress and ups and downs and I just want to enjoy life.
I want to meet a Female
with age from 18 to 28
and I want to meet for Friendship, Romance, Marriage or Other.
I would like to meet an intelegent good looking girl that knows what she wants and preferably for me speaks english as well. Would be nice if she had an education and / or job but that is not a make or break for me. I would like to meet a social person who is not scared of expressing themselves and likes to travel and do fun things also.

Janet Sindrey   June 17th, 2010 1:19 am ET

I believe tht Joran Van de Sloot is exactly where he deserves.
As much as my heart goes out to Natalees parents for closure this is just a ploy for him to go home, where he has manipulated the system before.
I think that Peru and the justice system there deserve thier shot at him and I can't help believing in devine justice becase he will have to manipulate himself for the rest of his life in that prison system.
Could'nt happen to a more deserving guy!!!

Doug DeVries   June 17th, 2010 1:26 am ET

I can only speak for myself, but if he had slaughtered my precious daughter I would specifically request any time he spent in the justice system be spent in just such a prison! I hope the system takes its time.

milicent troy   June 17th, 2010 1:27 am ET

send joran back to aruba. a country's civilization is shown by the condition of it's prisons. peru cannot be very civilized. joran needs help not torture.

Joran Van Der Sloot   June 17th, 2010 1:31 am ET

Joran Van Der Sloot is a manipulater who manipulates people to get his own way. He just made up the who story he was scared of getting murdered in prison just so he could get special treatment. And wow for sure he manipulated. He has his own isolated cell where he doesnt have to share with anyone. What kind of justice is this ? What kind of justice is a murderer getting. This isnt justice it looks as if he is been rewarded. He should be integrated with the other prisoners. No special treatment. He picked Peru to do the crime so he should pay for the crime. He is in Peru and he should follow the lawsand justice in Peru. There are a lot of murderers in that prison and they are not beentreated as Van Der Sloot is.

Joran Van Der Sloot   June 17th, 2010 1:37 am ET

There is something deeply wrong with Joran Van Der Sloot. I mean I have looked at photographs and saw the videos seen on television and it sends chills down my back. There is this evilness in him and with that evil smile of his. I feel bad for what Sebastian and Valentijn have to go through. They just want to live a normal life and not be associated with a brother who is known to be associated with the diasppearance of Natalie Holloway and the murder of Stephany Flores. I have seen photos of all three and they sure look like their father and look all alike.

Kat   June 17th, 2010 1:40 am ET

Justice hould be served here. Joran should spent the rest of his life in prison. He should stay there so he could think about his life.He should get a rude awakening.

EKM   June 17th, 2010 1:45 am ET

Dear Larry
I was born in Peru leaving now in the USA, I love Peru because is a beautiful country full of culture, I think your attorney guest was wrong to say that Peru is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. I was offended with his ignorance. Then again, what do you expect from a lawyer that defends drug convicts... He should check his facts, Peru has been growing their economy an average of 6% to 8% for the past 6 years . Mrs Clinton mention this in her visit, as well as President Obama when President Garcia from Peru visit the white house the begining of June.
Peru is very rich in natural materials like cooper,zinc and silver.
We are proud of Machu Pichu and our wonderful history,
It took a country like Peru to show the world how to get justice. As the sister of Ms. Flores mention " Peru was able to gather all the physical evidence, why did not ARUBA do the same. I will tell you why. Because they are the ones corrupted, not the Peruvians like your ignorant attorney mention.
I hope the world looks at Peru as the beautiful country it is, and not just by having the worst jail in the world. I am sure now everyone will think twice on commiting any crimes as they know what awaits them including both Peruvians and Foreigners
Thank your for the coverage.

Sarah   June 17th, 2010 2:39 am ET

SHAY22 You wouldn't think that if the girl was your daughter. THINK !!! He deserves to stay in Peru's prision 35 years and then back to Aruba.

sylvia   June 17th, 2010 2:49 am ET

Joran committed murder and confessed to it in Peru so he should be in prison in Peru. Peru has charged him with murder and robbery. They get the first sentencing of this manipulator.

The US has charged him with extortion – they get the second chance to jail him for his crime.

Aruba has not found any evidence nor have they charged him with any crime so if at some point verifiable evidence does show up which is unlikely after 5 years only then would he be sent there for a trial.

It is a sad thing for the Holloway family and my sympathy goes to them as I am sure they would like to know the circumstances of what happened to their daughter but they do have to come to terms with the fact that Joran will never disclose the truth as he has already told 4 or 5 different versions .

Let them find some solace that the family of Stephany Flores have lost a daughter so that justice will finally be given to this psychopath and more families will not have their beloved children at risk.

There is no question that Peru should keep him in jail for the maximum term.

Tari   June 17th, 2010 3:44 am ET

He did the crime in Peru, he should serve the time in Peru. I don't think he should have any special treatment either. He's a cold blooded killer and doesn't deserve it. Why would anyone send him to Aruba when their corrupt officials covered up his crime? I followed Natalee's case closely and have no confidence that Aruba ever had any intentions of prosecuting him. Compared to Peru, Aruban law enforcement looks like the Keystone Cops! My hat's off too the Peruvians for their excellent investigation and for catching Joran so quickly. This kid has tortured the Holloway family for years and has told so many lies about what happened to Natalee that no one has any reason to believe anything he says. Put him with the general population for a few months and then offer him his "upgraded" accommodations for the truth about Natalee.

Patti Patterson   June 17th, 2010 4:24 am ET

As far as Juron knowing where Natalee is....I am certain he does not! He perhaps as amistake sadhis father helped to dispose of her body! And as one who worked on a team here in the States! I have always said and felt he was not told really where she was and remember he was quite drunk sooo..... His father helped of that I am certain and his father took that to the grave! I think any statement now would only be feeding in to this sick sociopaths fanatasies and more painful for Nat.'s family! I wish we could have brought her home! Perhaps the person hired to help dispose her will anomously tell were they can find her! Juron is a serial ad I am certain he has killed in other countries! He will deserve a long torture filled life in what can only best be described as hell on earth! There is no way peru will let him go to club med arubian prision!

Leandra   June 17th, 2010 5:33 am ET

Keep him in Peru!!! He killed Stephany and probably also Natalee! I'm Dutch myself, but people like that Joran ******* don't make me proud of being Dutch!
He deserves a very harsch and big sentence, so keep him in Peru!! If he doesn't want to be in a jail like that, then he should have thought of that BEFORE killing 2 innocent gilrs!!!!!
He so deserves to be either in a Peruvian prison or an American prison!!!
So no, do not send him back to Aruba!

Christine   June 17th, 2010 5:53 am ET

Joran van der Sloot should be kept in the Peruvian prison, maybe there he will realize the graveness of his crimes, and it is all he deserves for having stolen two young women their lives.

soldier fish   June 17th, 2010 9:05 am ET

Larry King thinks the prison where van de Sloot is beig held is "inhumane". I would like to see him say that to the parents of the mutilated girl. I have an opinion – van der Sloot should be brought out in public – on tv – and killed in the same manner as he killed.

Ed Haney   June 17th, 2010 10:01 am ET

I think he should be taken from Peru and sent to Utah to be shot by firing squad. they need the practice and he needs to be executed no more breaks for him Never sent back to Aruba again ever.

Mary   June 17th, 2010 5:04 pm ET

Larry King and the entire liberal media aka Hollywood are sooo out of the loop . . . "prison inhumane, not fit for dogs" . , really Larry, what if one of those girls were your daughter? Or perhaps you'd be like "his" father and do whatever to "cover for your son"???? He will get what he deserves . . .in Peru, thank heavens. . . and I can only hope that his father is "rotting in hell, waiting at the gate" for his son . . .had his parents, Aruba and other government officials not covered for this "brat" five years ago, this poor girl would not have had to die . . everyone involved needs to pray to God for forgiveness!

Mary   June 17th, 2010 5:05 pm ET

Furthermore, Larry's end comment to the sister and brother-inlaw of "good luck" was ridiculous, cold and just simply inappropriate . . .really dropped the ball there!

John   June 17th, 2010 5:58 pm ET

It is obvious at this point that he is a sociopath, and will never change.

Although not tried in the Holloway case, all of the evidence, witness testimony – plus his own words and actions – have convicted him for her murder.

Another murder now in Peru. This one he can't beat. There is no counting what other crimes he has committed besides multiple murders and extortion. Will we ever know the extent of his debauchery?

I seriously doubt he ever lives through the prison sentence that he is given in Peru (there is no doubt in my mind that he will be convicted in the Flores murder). If, however, he buys his life while he is there (don't see it happening) he will nonetheless be convicted in U.S. Federal Court for extortion, and hopefully by that time Aruba authorities will come to their senses and be able to convict him as well.

In the end, justice will be served. And it will be justice that Van der Sloot will rightfully deserve but could never imagine happening to one as privileged as himself.

bruce hadden   June 17th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

Yes I believe in the death penalty and I would keep him in prison in Peru. The only thing I hate is that we have had to keep him up fo for 25 years at the tax payers expence in prison, I also believe that it is not murder to kill a person that is convicted of murder IT IS SIMPLY CALLED JUSTICE.

Reggi   June 19th, 2010 2:42 pm ET

I would show Mr.Slootie the same compassion he has shown his victims NONE
