The Talented Mr. Van der Sloot: Prime Suspect in Natalee Holloway Disappearance Now Sought In Connection of Murder of Lima Woman

Before anyone thinks I really mean he's talented -- it's a take off on The Talented Mr. Ripley, which is about a travelling serial killer who gets away with it because he's got social connections.

I say the Holloway case is very close to a final solution.

A young Dutchman previously arrested in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway is the prime suspect in a weekend murder of a Peruvian woman, police said Wednesday.

Joran van der Sloot is being sought in the Sunday killing of 21-year-old Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel, Criminal police chief Gen. Cesar Guardia told a news conference. He said the suspect fled the country the next day by land to Chile.

The Dutch government said Interpol has issued an international arrest warrant for Van der Sloot.

Guardia said the 22-year-old Dutchman, who was in the country for a poker tournament, appears with the young woman in a video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday.

Isn't it usually the case that once you know someone is a serial killer, when you see their picture, suddenly it becomes so damnably obvious he's a serial killer?

I think I could convince a judge hold him for 48 hours based on his brutish, mental-defective eyebrow ridge alone.

Fallout? LincolnTF writes:

If true (and obviously all I have are a few web references, so who knows?) he'll go down in history as one of the most notorious murderers ever. And the investigation (Holloway) will go down as one of the worst/most corrupted ever.

I didn't follow this case at all, but I'm sure interested now, especially if corruption -- "Such a nice boy from a nice family!" -- had any hand in getting him off.

Dan Riehl is the rightie blogger who specialized in this case; I wrote him about it, seeking reaction.

On Greta Tonight: Commenters are saying that Greta covered this a lot, of course, but more specifically, she has been all over this guy Van der Sloot like a bad haircut. So imagine tonight she'll be doing a full hour.
