International Dutch bad boy Joran van der Sloot shows regret

Joran’s mugshot from 2010

It has been more than a year since the world has heard anything newsworthy from Joran van der Sloot. Joran is known worldwide (which is an accomplishment by itself for a Dutch guy who isn’t a footballplayer or DJ) for the disappearance of Natalie Holloway and the murder of Stephany Flores. Joran’s fame in the Netherlands reached extrememe-ing (coined!) proportions when he was caught on camera smoking pot and telling all about Natalie’s disappearance a few years back.

He’s currently a guest of a correctional facility in Peru, doing 28 years for the murder of Stephany Flores. In the letter he states he is sorry for the death of Stephany and pleas for a lower sentence, his appeal against his sentence is currently processed.
