      Went gambling with the money.

      W#2–hytegirl—as to your question about the Sporter’s hair color—he is wearing crew cut style which makes natural hair color appear lighter. However, I agree it does look like he has either dyed or lightened it. Also becomes lighter in the sun….appears as if Joran has certainly spent some time outdoors in warm climates. Yah’ know—he’s big pimping and has got to represent. Also thankful that his nasty little gambling habit (poker tournament) and trying to extort blood money from Beth Holloway has come back to bite him in his large, Dutch arse.

      My thoughts and prayers are with Beth Holloway and family this evening. As Dave Holloway posted earlier—this must open up those painful wounds again. How bittersweet. I hope finally Natalee’s remains can be brought home. Our prayers are also with the Flores family.

      This is just a taste for Joran. Only he has himself to blame. Below is part of an article about prision conditions….

      brutal prison conditions in Peru.Convicted terrorists must serve their first year in isolation. The cells are concrete with a hole in the floor for a toilet.One meal a day, of mostly rice or potatoes, is served, along with tea and a bit of bread morning and night. Occasionally the midday stew is flavored with chunks of rat meat, according to former prisoners.Newspapers are banned, as are radios, television and writing instruments.

      and another article

      In 2007, the tuberculosis prevalence or morbidity rate in Lurigancho Prison was nearly 49 times higher than at the national level.

      ##7 & 8—Correction- Dave Holloway…Should have been Steve Holloway.
      Steve~ You are so right—this is just a taste for Joran. He is about to enter the gates of hell in prison, and then the true gates of hell when he departs from the Earth one day. We are lighting a candle for Natalee and your family this evening. She has never left our hearts. As a Mom, this tragedy still puts a lump in my throat and brings tears to my eyes when I think of what Natalee and the family has been put through. We continue to pray that Beth, Dave & your entire family will finally have the closure and peace you all so rightly deserve.

      Keep the faith, and God Bless

      Yes, I’m still here. Always checking in to SM over the past 5 years to hope one day, will see a resolution for Natalee’s loved ones. Something that will put this uncertainty to an end for them. This is the beginning of the end, and it will still be hard for them to get through. Still here, keeping them in my thoughts.

      i bet the obama administration will try to
      give this bum amnesty.

      Super Dave you dipstick this has nothing to do with the Obama administration. Get a Grip!

    13. ontos on June 4th, 2010 10:19 am

      Vandersloot will get his in a peruvian prison…no country club like the u.s or aruba..
      The girls father needs to make sure the little bastard id kept alive and pays every day..for years!!The prisons in peru are largely run by inmates who control who gets what and i’m sure
      joran will quickly become a “boy-toy” among other things!
      The hell with his “rights”…i hope the girls father has a real vindictive streak and uses his wealth and influence to make VanDerSloot miserable!!!

    14. wolfgang on June 4th, 2010 10:37 am

      Has anyone heard from (is it Anita?)the Mother of Joran that calls him “the Sporter” or the younger son? I wonder if they are still in Aruba since the Dad died probably another casualty of Joran’s because of worry???
      SM: They are still in Aruba. Joran was in Aruba with them soon after the death of his father. Joran just left Aruba May 14th and headed down to Peru for the poker tournament. (klaasend)

      Thanks god this time he can’t get off the hook. My sympathy goes to the families of the victims. Joran, the mama boy, was spoiled and transformed in a monster by his family, and Dutch Judiciary system and Government. He think is very smart and is in full disregard for others. For the disappearances of Natalee, the Dutch government covered up the Jorans crime, and they are as guilty as him. The Peruvians are Kind and Nice people, but they won’t tolerate this macabre crime. This is something that they can’t swallow. Peruvians are going to spit Joran’s body at least in to PIECES.

      |Van Der Slot his part of macaber devil worshipping cult, who kills and sells young woman, the last one, one for his personal gain but I wonder why he killed her in hotel where he knew he could not hide body,his family knew surely someone in peru, why not contact them and get him fake passprt?
      The last victim, was she private investigator?Even knowng dutch?
      Of course he could have just killed her for the fun of it and 5000 dollars?
      Strange he don’t seem to be so deranged as to risk it for the fun of it.I look like calculated murder, who knows when to strike.
      Strange!It look like they(evil cabal of sex slave and god knows what else they belonged to) wanted him and his father out of circulation!
