Is Joran van der Sloot in a Psychiatric Hospital in the Netherlands?

According to yesterdays BonDia Aruba he is. Translation:

ORANJESTAD – Joran van der Sloot has spend the past week internally in a psychiatric Institute in the Netherlands. This was confirmed recently by his close family.

The motive of this was because Joran had flipped and wasn’t himself anymore. It therefore was necessary that he spend time internally and was given treatment necessary for a better health. This news did not come as a surprise here, to see the inner state van der Sloot was in and the way he was acting by which he involved himself in the case of Natalee Holloway.

A youngster of his age, getting so much negative attention will crack any minute. Comments one can hear on the news here, that this did not come as a surprise. In the past his family wanted to give psychiatric attention because of his bothersome actions within the family. There have been several attempts to have him undergoing treatment of a psychiatrist.

But in all instances Joran denied this and said he did not feel he needed a psychiatrist to help him with his alleged problems.

He answered that to do that he had decided to write a 351 pages counting book, titled “De zaak Holloway”, which he produced with the help of a female Dutch journalist. For Joran van der Sloot, the motive for this was it being a form of therapy, to make it possible for him to deal with all the things that had happened inside since the day since he met with Natalee Holloway 3 years ago.


The story has also been picked up by several Dutch papers that appear to be using BonDia as their source. In the Dutch articles Joran’s family is denying it:



If true, is it a strategy by his defense team to keep his mouth shut?


Or is it a ploy to keep him from being prosecuted?


If false, why is BonDia spreading false rumors? We will watch and update as the truth comes out.

UPDATE I: As of this afternoon no verification one way or the other from any “reliable” sources. The only source reporting it is BonDia and if not true, I hope they print a retraction.

UPDATE II: Reaction from Joran’s attorney in the Netherlands as reported in Dutch news

The family Van der Sloot at first denied the report yesterday, but via lawyer Bert de Rooij the family later on the day let out that they do not want to go into the report.

“After having consultated the people surrounding my client the decission has been made that I will not confirm the report nor deny it. Due to their explicit wishes I will no not let out anything about this”, according to de Rooij.

AUM sleuths Take a look at Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba Case … Hint, Go to Scared Monkeys … Premeditated

More sleuths try to uncover the mystery and answers of the Natalee Holloway case. They may want to start with internet investigative work that has gone on since day one following Natalee Holloway’s disappearance.

Students from three area universities and the The Auburn Montgomery Continuing Education Office and the Alabama Crime Prevention Clearinghouse met to investigate the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. These aspiring sleuths may want to first started with the following information as to the nature of the crime.

“Students from all three universities will be working together to solve cold cases,” said Sheryl McCollum, CCIRI director.

“They will be conducting investigative research where students will formulate a theory based on every piece of research they come across.”

Research will consist of going back to the scene of the crime and interviewing detectives in to get a true sense of what they think may have happened.

A hint to these soon to be sleuths … start here at Scared Monkey’s and then here at the Scared Monkeys forum, the achieves too. You may also want to read the actual witness and suspect statements as well.



1. Lee Ashford Broughten’s statement where Joran said nobody ever goes to CnC on Sundays

2. Jaime statement where he talks about Joran calling him the night of 5/29 to see if he wanted to go to CnC to meet the American girls.

3. Chapter from Joran’s book titled “de pimps” where Joran talks about picking up tourist girls.

4. Joran interview with Greta where he says he’s probably done it 20 times before. I’ll try to get you a fox link but for now I have this:

Thirty Students from three area universities will try to do what countless law enforcement officials in this country and on Aruba have been unable to do — solve the disappearances of Natalee Holloway and Chandra Levy.

Although Natalee Holloway will be one of the program’s two initial cases, Beth Holloway Twitty told students at the event that the program is not just about her daughter — the Mountain Brook student disappeared more than two years ago during a high school graduation trip to Aruba.

“I think we all know that,” she said. “I think that it’s about each and every individual.”

“I think the things you can uncover … will help millions and millions,” Twitty told the students.(Montgomery Advisor)

Nisreen Swedberg & Sarah Williams Claim Southwest Airlines Discriminated Against Them Because they were “Too Pretty”

We’re to sexy for your plane, too sexy for your plane … or maybe we’re just too vane. Any one who remembers Right Said Fred and the song I’m too Sexy … gets the joke. By the way girls … you’re not all that.

Just when you thought you had heard it all. Along comes a claim of Southwest_girls_Too_Prettydiscrimination because of being “too pretty”. Coeds Nisreen Swedberg and Sarah Williams claim Southwest Airlines treated them rudely throughout their flight from Tampa Bay to Los Angeles.

One would think that maybe these two girls could be a bit more original in their story. Haven’t we heard heard this similar type story just recently from a Hooters waitress flying Southwest?

“I think they were just discriminating against [us] because we were young decent-looking girls,” Williams told “I mean, nobody else on the plane looked like us except us. [The flight attendants] were like older ladies. We were younger. Who knows, they could have been just jealous of us because we were younger.” (Fox News)

Southwest Airlines stated that “the two passengers that are referenced in the media were using vulgar language, aggressive behavior, threatening gestures at 30,000 feet.”

‘Too Pretty’ College Students Escorted Off Flight

Too pretty to fly, huh? A blogger goes after two snooty girls
