Joran van der Sloot Wanted For Murder While In Peru for LAPT Event

No way we're posting an image of Joran van der Sloot so above is where the LAPT Lima event is taking place.

We were fascinated by the Natalie Holloway story and particularly, the attitude demonstrated by the main suspect in the case, Joran van der Sloot, and how the hell he was never charged by police in Aruba.

Now almost five years after that case first hit the news, van der Sloot is wanted for another murder, this time in Lima, Peru…

…where he was in town for the LAPT Lima event (schedule here).

Crazy. Read more about it here and here. Fuck that guy.

In somewhat related news, we’ve spoken to a few PokerStars pros who aren’t happy that they’re basically being made to ditch the WSOP for a week to attend this event. Yet another sign that Stars and its associated tours are ready to (attempt to) take on the WSOP.

UPDATE: So Joran was arrested. Read more about the case and find out Joran’s screen names here.

    Rumor has it, he’s committed suicide. I hope so, since I live in the same city where Natalie Holloway is from and it’s been on the news since it first happened. Btw, wonder if his last hand was A-8?

    Let’s hope that rumor is not true, and he gets a long sentence in a Peruvian prison. However, if he offed himself, I’d be fine with that too. We all know he killed Natalie Holloway.
