Paulus van der Sloot Dies: Joran van der Sloots Father Dies

Paulus van der Sloot, the father of Joran van der Sloot, collapsed and died after a tennis game today. Updates as available. See 2-12-10 update below. Update 6-2-10 on Joran and the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez here. See ongoing updates - a one-stop documentation of Joran van der Sloot.

6-8-10 Update: Joran van der Sloot has confessed in Peru to the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez. Read that story here.

Paulus van der Sloot

His son, Joran, is a suspect in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway while on Spring Break in Aruba in May 2005.

It has been a while now since we've heard anything about Joran, but watch this chilling video about Joran "selling Natalee Holloway." The second video is Joran confessing to a friend that something happened to Natalie on the beach. He called a friend, an older man, who took her two miles or more out to sea. He said she would never be found.

Update 2-11-10:
ScaredMonkeys has talked to Jossy Mansur, the editor of DIARIO, which was the only publication in Aruba to try help the Holloway family find their daughter. His comment about Paul van der Sloot:" Yes, Paul died playing tennis yesterday afternoon. God forgive him!"

 One of my commenters says Joran is living in Thailand and owns a coffee shop.

Update 2-12-10:
Peter R. de Vries, the crime reporter Joran confessed to in the second video below says that Joran remains a suspect, and the death of his father complicates the Natalee Hollowya case.

Joran has said an older friend dumped Natalee's body out at sea, that he sold her to a Venezuelan on the Aruba beach for a sex-slave and  that his father bribed a Aruban policeman to make the crime go away.
