Ramirez – Crime & Courts, Joran van der Sloot : People.com: “The Dutchman, 23, will try for a reduced sentence using the ‘violent emotion’ defense, his lawyer, Maximo Altez, told The Associated Press.
The lawyer argues that Van der Sloot killed Ramirez on May 30 after becoming enraged when he realized she had looked at his laptop and learned of his connection to missing American teen Natalee Holloway, who disappeared from the island of Aruba in 2005.”
These are from an earlier period in his imprisonment in Peru.
This was my first poem about van der Sloot:
And the second:

Joran Van Der Sloot. Imprisoned. Forgetting. Bravado. Poetry. Imprisoned and the process of forgetting is in progress. The prisoner reflects on his former bravado.
