Joran Van der Sloot, Convicted Killer of Stephany Flores and Suspected Killer of Natalee Holloway Marries Girlfiend Leidy Figueroa in Peru Prison … The Bride of Frankenstein
Bride of Frankenstein …
In just another example of the world has gone mad, convicted killer Joran Van der Sloot was married his Peruvian
girlfriend conjugal squeeze Leidy Figueroa on Friday morning at the Peruvian prison that the “Little Sporter” is being held for murder. John Barrera, Mayor of Ancón District, presided over the ceremony. How special, maybe his mom Anita could have a first dance to “Psycho Killer”. It gets even worse, Figueroa is pregnant with this dirt-bags child. Van der Sloot is currently serving a 28 year prison sentence for the murder of Stephanie Flores and is the prime suspect for all common sense thinking people in the disappearance and death of Alabama teen, Natalee Holloway who went missing in 2005 on Aruba.
A marriage made in Hell
Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway, married his pregnant Peruvian girlfriend Friday in a ceremony at the maximum-security prison where he is serving 28 years for murdering a woman he met in a Lima casino.
Van der Sloot, 26, wed Leidy Figueroa, 24, in a private ceremony. Prison officials prohibited video and photos during the midday nuptials and none of the groom’s relatives attended, said his attorney, Maximo Altez.
Wearing a tailored suit and dress shoes sent by his mother, Van der Sloot told his bride, who is seven months pregnant, that after he is released from prison, “‘I want to marry you again,’ and she told him the same,” said John Barrera, who officiated the wedding as mayor of the city of Ancon, where the prison is located.
Sick monster, Joran Van der Sloot
Just sick. This murderer snuffs out the lives of 18 year old Natalee Holloway and 21 year old Stephanie Flores and he is allowed to have a life, get married and have children. I wonder where Joran Van der Sloot wedding registry was … Murderers R Us? Maybe Joran and Leidy can honeymoon in Aruba?
We are still looking for confirmation as to whether Joran’s new wife took out the phrase “unto death do us part” from the wedding vows, for obvious reasons.
The Dutch national, who is serving a 28-year sentence for the killing of Stephany Flores — married a Peruvian woman named Leidy Figueroa on Friday morning, his attorney told CNN en Espanol.
The nuptials took place at the Lima, Peru, prison where the 26-year-old van der Sloot is being held, according to the lawyer, Maximo Altez. John Barrera, Mayor of Ancón District, presided over the ceremony.
Van der Sloot is expected to become a father in September, when Figureoa is due to give birth to their child together, Altez said.
But just like he won’t have a honeymoon anytime soon, van der Sloot won’t be around to change diapers after the baby heads home.
Even his mother these days refuses to have contact with Joran as she believes his is sick in the head. Ta think? Although she still is in denial that he had anything to do with the death of Natalee Holloway, she does believe he did murder Stephany Flores. Anita claims that days before he went to Peru, Joran was supposed to be committed to a psychiatric facility in Holland. Sorry Anita, Joran Van der Sloot did not need mental help after the death of his father or Nataee Holloway, this killer needed help long before that.

Imprisoned Murderer Joran van der Sloot to Marry 23 Year Old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, Pregnant With His Child … Weddings & Parenthood, Things Natalee Holloway & Stephany Flores Will Never Experience
Just one more vindictive poke in the eye to Natalee Holloway’s Family …
May 2005 Natalee Holloway goes missing in Aruba while on vacation with other teens from Mountainbrook, Alabama and Joran van der Sloot was and still is the primary suspect in all rational thinking people’s minds in her disappearance and death. Five years to the day that Natalee went missing, May 2010 Joran van der Sloot murders 21 year old Stephany Flores and later confesses to the crime and is eventually found guilty and sentenced to 28 years in prison in Peru. Now May 2014, Joran van der Sloot through his attorney tells the world that the sociopath is getting married in a couple of weeks to 23 year old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, who is pregnant with his child. Coincidence, hardly.
Sadly, neither Natalee Holloway nor Stephany Flores will ever be able to experience the joys of marriage or being a parent. Yet this sociopath is allowed to do both. One day there will be a reckoning Joran and it will not be pretty.
Hey Leydi, you may want to rethink the nuptials … it did not work out so well for the two girls above being near “The Sporter,”Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores
He’s serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian woman. He’s also the main suspect in the disappearance of an American teenage girl. But these days, Joran van der Sloot is more focused on his wedding plans than his legal situation.
Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s Peruvian defense attorney, told CNN the 26-year-old Dutch national is getting married “in late May or early June” to a Peruvian woman he befriended in the prison in which he’s being held in Lima, the capital.
“They met when she was visiting a relative in prison. They became friends and spent a lot of time together in his cell,” Altez said. “Unlike The United States, here in Peru loved ones or relatives can see inmates inside their jails.”
Joran van der Sloot is scheduled to be released on June 10, 2038; but according to his attorney the 28 year sentence can be reduced considerably “for good behavior.” However, Van der Sloot is then supposed to be extradited to the United States to face extortion charges. Some have speculated that Joran is marrying his prison conjugal visit partner to help him become a Peru citizen and some how lessen his chances for extradition to the US. However, as stated above by HLN correspondent Jean Casarez, there is no benefit for Van der Sloot to get married. So why? Can you just say spite from the sociopath and one more way to harass Beth Holloway and Natalee’s family. It is not lost that this is the anniversary of her death and disappearance.
EXIT QUESTION: WILL JORAN VAN DER SLOOT AND HIS SOON TO BE BRIDE LEYDI CAROL FIGUEROA UCEDU HONEYMOON IN ARUBA?

Peru Agrees to Extradite Joran van der Sloot to United States in 26 years in 2038 for Federal Extortion & Wire Fraud Charges in Connection with Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba
Joran Van der Sloot, you can run, but you can’t hide … Peru has agreed to extradite Joran van der Sloot to the United States.
Joran Van der Sloot will be contradicted to the United States in 2038. Peru confirmed Sunday it will extradite Dutch convicted killer Joran Van der Sloot, serving a 28-year sentence here for murdering a young Peruvian woman, Stephany Flores, to the United States in 2038. Joran Van der Sloot murdered Stephany Flores five years to the day that he was also accused of killing Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, will be extradited to the United States, but only after he serves his sentence in Peru first. A federal grand jury in the United States indicted Van der Sloot on charges of extortion and wire fraud.
Natalee Holloway (Left) – Joran Van der Sloot (center) – Stephany Flores (right)
That’s how much time will pass before the prime suspect in the disappearance of American Natalee Holloway faces the American justice system.
Peru has agreed to extradite Joran van der Sloot to the United States, but only after he finishes serving a 28-year murder sentence, the Peruvian news agency Andina reported. The Peruvian court system sentenced him in 2012.
In the United States he’s been indicted on federal charges of extortion and wire fraud. American authorities accuse him of extorting money from Holloway’s mother by offering bogus information about her daughter’s disappearance.

GOOD GRIEF … Wedding Bells for Joran Van der Sloot, To Be Married in Two Weeks While Serving for Murder of Stephany Flores at Piedras Gordas Prison (Still Waiting Extortion Charges in US in Connection with Death of Natalee Holloway) … Unlucky Bride Leidy Figueroa
ARE YOU JOKING … JORAN VAN DER SLOOT TO BE MARRIED?
As reported at Ad.nl, Joran Van der Sloot is to be married within two weeks. Yes that Joran Van der Sloot who is currently serving 28 years in Piedras Gordas prison in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores and the same “Sporter” who should have already been in prison for the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. The unlucky or insane to be bride is reports as Leidy Figueroa. I am sure her parents are so proud. But of course Joran Van der Sloot is marrying out of love. NOT!!! So why would Joran Van der Sloot marry a Peruvian woman? It can’t be for the conjugal visits, one does not have to be married to do such. Could it be to become a Peruvian citizen through marriage? However, I am not sure why this would matter for Van der Sloot seeing that both Peru and the Netherlands have extradition treaties with the United States. At some point Van der Sloot is going to be extradited to the United States and an Alabama courtroom to face extortion charges he perpetrate against Beth Holloway in the death of her daughter, Natalee Holloway.
We have heard these rumors before, looks like this time it might just be true. Where is the couple registered at, Murderers ‘R Us?
Of course the timing of this has nothing to do with the fact that Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen from Mountainbrook, went missing in Aruba on May 30, 2005.
Rough translation of AD.nl article via Google below:
According to Maximo Altez, the lawyer of Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch convicted murderer, serving a sentence of 28-year sentence in a Peruvian cell, to get married. “Joran is currently busy with the preparations,” said the counsel against Heart of the Netherlands.
Altez expects the consent is issued within two weeks before the wedding but says that there is a lot of paperwork for a wedding in the Piedras Gordas prison is needed. The ‘happy’ is Joran Peruvian fiancé Leidy Figueroa.
Marry for love The marriage would be ‘out of love’ were born, and are not intended to prevent. Possible extradition to the United States “Being married does not change his situation,” says the lawyer. Van der Sloot in America must stand trial for the extortion of the mother of the disappeared in Aruba American Natalee Holloway.
Joran, brought in connection since her disappearance in 2005, Holloway her mother would have kept wanting to tell where her daughter is buried fee. Van der Sloot only part of the requested money in hands, and had traveled to South America.
In Peru he murdered in his hotel room, the student Stephany Flores. He fled to Chile, but was arrested and sentenced in Peru. Marrying a Peruvian, Van der Sloot, according to local media, provide the Peruvian nationality. That fact would complicate extradition to the U.S..
UPDATE I: May 31, 2013 … MSM finally reports that Joran Van der Sloot engaged and too be married. Hmm, only six days late to the game.
Convicted killer Joran van der Sloot has announced that he is ready to tie the knot.
Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s attorney, has confirmed that his client is engaged to a Peruvian woman named Leydi Figueroa Uceda. She’s the same woman that van der Sloot was dating in October of 2012. The couple reportedly met through an inmate. In late 2012, Uceda was rumored to have been pregnant with van der Sloot’s child, but the news was never confirmed.
Altez says that the couple is working on getting some final paperwork processed so the marriage can take place. He adds that he expects the union to happen in the next two weeks.
UPDATE II: Joran Van der Sloot plans to get married next month in the Peruvian prison where he’s serving time for murder, his lawyer told ABC News Friday. Told ABC News? Why didn’t ABC News just do a simple Google search and they would have learned from Dutch publications that the “Sporter” was getting married?
Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s lawyer, said the 25-year-old will marry girlfriend Leydi Figueroa Uceda sometime in June. The two met in 2011 when Figueroa was visiting another inmate at the prison where van der Sloot was being held before his trial, ABC News reported. In October, Altez denied reports that Figueroa was pregnant with van der Sloot’s child.

Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand Go Missing While on Trip in Peru, Have Not Been Heard From Since January 25, 2013 (Update: Found Safe)
US State Department American joins in the search for the missing San Francisco couple in Peru.
Jamie Neal and her boyfriend Garrett Hand departed the United States in December for an biking adventure through South America. Their biking expedition was to take them through Argentina, Chile and Peru, as the couple chronicled their travels on Facebook. However, the two were last heard from on January 25, 2013. Jamie’s last communication with her sister Jennifer was on the 25th , in a Facebook post. Jamie Neal had posted numerous pictures along the way during the couples trip; however, they have suddenly stopped. Another alarming set of events is that Garrett’s cell phone simply goes to a recording.
KTVU reports, that the couple was last seen on January 26 taking a bus from Cusco to Lima and then getting in a cab. What is most amazing is the following from the KTVU article, “Although miles away from home, they were never more than a computer away from family and friends.” If that is what these two Americans thought or anything, past, present and future, you are delusional. Trust me from experience, when you are on such a vacation, you are all alone, by yourself. All the internet or cell phone does is chronicle your demise and potential last place you were at because by the time help comes, it is most likely going to be far too late.
Cycle enthusiasts Garrett Hand and Jamie Neal left the Bay Area in November for an adventure of a lifetime, a bike trek through South America. Although miles away from home, they were never more than a computer away from family and friends. The couple chronicled their travels on Facebook, but the photos and status updates stopped Jan. 25. “It’s upsetting, I’m worried about both of them,” said Jeff Jerge, owner of Pedaler Bike Shop.
FACEBOOK: American Citizen Services – U.S. Embassy Lima, Peru. The U.S. State Department has made a poster of Neal and Hand, while the U.S. Embassy in Peru’s website posted a travel warning for Americans.
February 13, 2013 The U.S. Embassy warns U.S. citizens of a potential kidnapping threat in the Cusco area. The Embassy has received information that members of a criminal organization may be planning to kidnap U.S. citizen tourists in the Cusco and Machu Picchu area. Possible targets and methods are not known and the threat is credible at least through the end of February 2013. For the moment, personal travel by U.S. Embassy personnel to the Cusco region, including Machu Picchu, has been prohibited and official travel is severely restricted as a result of this threat.

A U.S. Embassy warning to U.S. tourists of a potential kidnapping threat in the Cuzco region, including the famed Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, drew vehement objections from Peruvian officials Friday. But a U.S. Embassy official said credible evidence exists of a threat from a Peruvian terrorist group. The official confirmed a report in the Peruvian newspaper La Republica that said leaders of the cocaine-financed Shining Path outlaw band discussed kidnapping foreigners, principally Americans, in intercepted communications. Tens of thousands of Americans visit Peru each year.
UPDATE II: Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand Found Safe.
Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand have been found save traveling along the Navos River. They stated that they did not even know their families were looking for them. First let me state, I am glad they have been found safe and there was never any incident. That being said, are you serious! They kept in contact while traveling alone throughout South America on their biking trip constantly posting on Facebook, then go silent and out of contact for a month and they don’t think anyone is concerned or worried? REALLY? How would one not think that people are concerned that they have not heard from you in a month? This speaks volumes, doesn’t it.
A California couple thought to be missing for a month during a trip to Peru have been located aboard a boat – and they didn’t even know their families had been looking for them.
Jamie Neal, 25, and Garrett Hand, 27, from California’s Bay Area, left for Peru in December for a South America bike trip, and had not been in contact with friends and relatives since late January.
The couple was found on a boat that was traveling along the Navos River.
Joran Van der Sloot to Marry? In Prison for Murder of Stephany Flores in Peru and Prime Suspect in Death & Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba
Hey Joran, instead of saying “I do,” just admit “You did it”!!!
Is Joran Van der Sloot going to marry while behind bars in Peru and serving a 28 year sentence for the murder of Stephany Flores? Are nuptials in the air for the convicted murderer and the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway? Or is this just a PR stunt by his attorney? As Joran Van der Sloot and his attorney attempt to appeal his murder conviction is the “little Dutch Boy” also picking out China patterns? Where would he register?
Do bullet proof vests come in black with matching cumber buns?
The 24-year-old is reportedly planning to marry while serving a 28-year sentence in a Lima prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, according to Peruvian tabloid Peru 21.
Van der Sloot’s defense attorney was named by the paper as a source – but he denied the report.
“As far as I know, he’s not going to get married,” Maximo Altez told the Daily Beast. “They cited me as the source, but I’m just in charge of his legal issues, and I don’t participate in his private life.”
More from the Daily Beast.
And as Van der Sloot tries to squirm his way out of a 28-year sentence, there’s another hot piece of gossip: the possibility of his upcoming nuptials while behind bars. The news broke late last week as local tabloids asserted that he plans to marry and unidentified woman. It’s not the first time Van der Sloot has been branded as a lady’s man—just last year, while he was awaiting trial, a story broke in the local media that a pregnant young woman was carrying his child. She denied it on Peruvian television.
These stories were published through the week, with the information attributed to Altez, who denied he was the source. “I deny all of that,” the lawyer said. “As far as I know, he’s not going to get married. They cited me as the source, but I’m just in charge of his legal issues, and I don’t participate in his private life.”
It is rather sad and quite pathetic that such a news story would be spread by Team Joran Van der Sloot, especially when his victims Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores will never have the chance to have their wedding day.
Joran Van der Sloot Asks for Forgiveness in Death of Stephany Flores Ahead of Next Months Murder Appeal … But Still No Apology to the family of Natalee Holloway
JORAN VAN DER SLOOT’S NOT SO SINCERE APOLOGY AHEAD OF HIS APPEAL …
Just when you thought that Joran Van der Sloot was no longer in the news and was quietly serving out his 28 year sentence for the murder of Stephany Flores in Peru … He’s back! The narcissist Dutchmen, Joran Van der Sloot, has sent a letter to the Flores family apologizing and asking for forgiveness in the murder of their daughter. What is most amazing is that even in this letter that is supposed to be an apology, he still blames the victim for being on his computer. In his drunken rage, he killed her. Wow, has Joran had a change of heart, has he seen the light, is he a changed “little sporter” and now sincere? Hardly, do not hold your breath. What is the real reason for the sudden act of compassion? The 24 year old Dutchman is due to appeal against the long prison sentence next month, hoping to knock a couple of years off his sentence.
More from Radio Netherlands Worldwide:
Van der Sloot says in the letter, which has been leaked by his reinstated lawyer Maximo Altez, that he was drunk and killed the 21-year-old in a rage, after finding her looking at documents pertaining to the Natalee Holloway case on his laptop. Natalee Holloway disappeared exactly five years earlier on the Caribbean island of Aruba, she has since been declared dead – Joran van der Sloot is still the prime suspect in her murder.
In the letter, Van der Sloot also claims he suffers from psychological problems. He writes: “I ask God every day if Stephany’s parents can forgive me.” If the appeal court rules that the murder was not premeditated, five years could be knocked off Van der Sloot’s sentence. In which case he could be extradited to the United States earlier, where he faces extortion charges. Van der Sloot is accused of demanding 25,000 dollars from Natalee Holloway’s mother in exchange for revealing the whereabouts of her daughter’s body. How compassionate of him!
By the way, where is the apology for the death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005? Joran Van der Sloot is a calculating predator to the end. Anything he does has a direct self-gratification for himself. Does any one think that if it were not for the upcoming appeal that Van der Sloot would be writing this letter? Nope! Also, just like he kept twisting the knife with the family of missing and murdered Natalee Holloway, where Joran has yet to apologize, Joran appears to continue interjecting himself in the lives of the Flores family like a cancer that just won’t go away.
However, Joran Van der Sloot may not want to get out of the Peru prison too soon. When he does, his Dutch butt is going to be extradited to the United States and he will face wire fraud and extortion charges.

Suspect in Natalee Holloway disappearance Joran Van der Sloot Being Evaluated for Extradition to US from Peru for Extortion Charges
HEY JORAN, YOU’RE NOT IN ARUBA ANYMORE …
Just when Joran Van der Sloot thought it was safe to go back in the Aruba water … well, he won’t be doing that for some time as he faces a 28 year sentence in a Peruvian prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, Van der Sloot faces new issues.
According to Maximo Altez, Joran van der Sloot’s Peruvian attorney, Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruna in 2005 now faces possible extradition to the United States. Joran Van der Sloot was charged with extortion in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Beth Holloway in order to tell her where to find the remains of Natalee Holloway. Needless to say, after Van der Sloot had received the monies, he lied to Beth Holloway as to the location where her daughter could be found.
A lawyer for Joran van der Sloot says Peru is evaluating a request by the United States to extradite the jailed Dutchman, who is the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
The 24-year-old also faces extortion charges in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Holloway’s mother to tell her where to find the remains of her daughter, who was 18 when she disappeared while on vacation.
CNN is reporting, the extradition process could be completed in the next three months.
Joran Van der Sloot’s Lawyer Whines that His Client Removed from Castro Castro Prison and Put in More Strick Piedras Gordas
Attorney Jiménez cry me a river, “how about some cheese with that “whine” …
According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Joran Van der Sloot has been removed from solitary confinement at Piedras Gordas prison and now back in a cell shared with another con. However, Van der Sloot’s attorney is whining over the fact that the “Sperter” has been transferred from Castro Castro prison in the Peruvian capital of Lima to Piedras Gordas in the desert outside the city. Piedras Gordas is considered a more harsh and strict prison. Jimenez is appealing the transfer and says that it was uncalled for, because Van der Sloot had not misbehaved and the image that his cell was luxurious was incorrect. Attorney Jiménez, ask us if we care?
The VIDEO of Joran Van der Sloot’s sentencing that we never get tired of
“He is no longer in a mediation cell as they call it, but he now has more room and shares his cell with another detainee.”
He says Van der Sloot is still annoyed that he has been transferred from the Castro Castro prison in the Peruvian capital Lima to Piedras Gordas in the desert outside the city. The prison is notorious for its strict regime. Mr Jiménez says the authorities have not responded to a request to be transferred back.
Meanwhile, Beth Holloway continues to inform other and honor the memory of Natalee Holloway so that others may learn from what tragically happened to her daughter.
Nearly seven years later, Beth Holloway continues to honor Natalee’s memory by speaking out about travel safety, while promoting organizations to aid families whose loved ones are missing and educating those who travel abroad. On Thursday night at the Bristol Public Library, she held a group of more than 100 spellbound while describing her journey through tragedy.
She recounted the nightmarish search for her missing daughter, the indifference and lack of cooperation from foreign law enforcement and the encounters with prime suspect Joran van der Sloot.
