Is the Peter R. De Vries tapes of Joran Van der Sloot just the tip of the ice berg? Aruban police say that there is more evidence against Joran Van der Sloot than what was seen on the secret recordings of Joran Van der Sloot and his admissions of what he did with Natalee Holloway.
Joran Van der Sloot in his need for attention has cooked his own goose.
Aruban investigators say there’s more evidence against Joran van der Sloot than was revealed in Monday’s broadcast of a hidden-camera interview with the chief suspect in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance.
In the interview, which ran Monday night on ABC’s 20/20, van der Sloot said Holloway lost consciousness while they were kissing on the beach in May 2005 and he then called a friend named Daury with a boat, who disposed of her body in the ocean.
Aruba’s chief prosecutor said Monday that he believes the interview is admissible in court.
Investigators did search two places van der Sloot has lived in Holland on Monday, removing some evidence, Richardson said. He would not specify what the evidence was but said investigators know what they’re looking for. On Monday, an acquaintance of van der Sloot’s named Daury Rodriguez held a news conference in Aruba with his attorney, who denied his client had any role in Holloway’s death. In the television footage, van der Sloot said he did not kill her, but that he called “Daury” from a nearby pay phone after he could not revive her. Although he said it was difficult to tell the story, he also bragged about how the event didn’t bother him. “I was even able to sleep that night,” van der Sloot said. “I just went home and went to bed.” Mos said Aruban courts would likely accept the tape, which was first broadcast Sunday in Holland, as evidence because it was recorded by a private citizen outside the influence of police.
