I’ve been saying for more than a decade now, “The fish who kept his mouth shut never got caught.” Apparently, Joran Van der Sloot didn’t learn that lesson. Van der Sloot is one of the suspects who is alleged to have played a key role in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance from an Aruba beach back in 2005. ABC has obtained a “taped video confession” of Van der Sloot confessing to his friend that he was with Holloway when she died. He Should have remembered his good ole Miranda Rights. He explains on the videotape that Holloway was drunk and that she began shaking and slumped down on the beach as they were kissing. If you haven’t already done so, please view the video below.
While he denies murdering her, he allegedly confesses that he called his friend “Daury” who volunteered his boat to help dump the body at sea. Most damaging is that Van der Sloot couldn’t say for sure whether he dumped a lifeless body into the sea or whether she was simply unconscious and/or in a coma.
Van der Sloot’s defense is that he lied in the secretly taped video and just said what his buddy wanted to hear. Regardless of his true motives for spewing those remarks, he should have kept his mouth shut.
