As if Joran Van der Sloot wasn’t already in enough trouble. He was already the prime suspected individual in the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway. Then Joran became the suspect in the stabbing death of 21 year old Stephany Flores in Peru. Van der Sloot was arrested and taken into custody yesterday near Santiago, Chile.
Just when you thought that this dispicable individual could not get him self into any more trouble, Joran Van der Sloot is now charged in Alabama with extortion.

The investigation into the extortion charges against Van der Sloot had been on going for the past six weeks. Yet another bizarre coincidence that JVDS would find himself in further trouble, now the prime suspect in yet another murder.

I thought that Joran Van der Sloot said he had nothing to do with Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, or so says Aruban authorities, prosecutors and the 3 judge panel. Wanna try that one again folks?
