In federal court in Birmingham on Wednesday, Joran van der Sloot, the now 36-year-old man long thought to be responsible for Natalie Holloway’s death, entered a guilty plea to counts of fraud and extortion.

When visiting a Dutch Caribbean island for her high school graduation, Natalie vanished. The last person I saw with the 18-year-old was van der Sloot. Despite the fact that he was a suspect from the start, Aruba officials were never able to establish a case.

But when Van der Sloot was already incarcerated in Peru for the death of Stephanie Flores, a college student, in his hotel room in Lima, federal prosecutors in Alabama accused him of wire fraud and extortion in 2010.

According to the accusation, Van der Sloot sought to pay Beth Holloway $250,000 in return for information and specifics about Natalie’s death.

According to a statement by US Attorney Prime Escalona, “Today, the United States holds Joran van der Sloot accountable for a conspiracy to abuse a mother seeking information about her missing daughter.”
