I have just learned that Paul Van Der Sloot, the father of Joran Van Der Sloot, who is hiding out in Thailand, died of a heat attack last night while playing tennis near him home in Aruba. Joran Van Der Sloot is suspected in the death of teen Natalee Holloway, but was never charged. He has changed his story several times. I spent 2 weeks with Van Der Sloot in Thailand, while he recanted yet another version of what happened to Natalee that night on the beach. Van der Sloot’s father, Paul, was a judge and an attorney in Aruba, and many believed he knew more about his son’s involvement in Holloway’s disappearance than he let on. I wonder what secrets Paul took to his grave? Stay tuned for more details.
As I mentioned, I spent 2 weeks (2 separate trips) in Thailand locating and interiewing Joran Van Der Sloot. He had a new story about what happened to Natalee. Here are the last known pictures of Van Der Sloot from the Summer of 2008. He was involved in some shadey dealings there, which made me nervous. I wonder if he’s even still alive?
