Never mind that Joran van der Sloot is behind bars for the 2010 murder of Peruvian Stephany Flores, who was 21 years old at the time of her death, or that he's still wanted in the U.S. in connection with the 2005 disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway in Aruba. You didn't think a little 28-year prison sentence could actually keep the convicted killer Joran van der Sloot out of trouble, didja? Nah. Van der Sloot STILL managed to have an "unsupervised" visit with a woman recently.
How unsupervised? Unsupervised enough for van der Sloot to get the woman pregnant, apparently. Indeed, both van der Sloot and his lawyer, Maximo Altes, have confirmed the pregnancy (which is past its third month), though the mom-to-be has been identified only as "Leidi." Um, congrats? Hallmark doesn't exactly make a greeting card for this one: "Best wishes to you and your convicted killer baby daddy on your bun in the oven."
But while the question of why any woman in her right mind would choose to get involved with van der Sloot on any level is a valid one, only "Leidi" can answer that. What I really want to know is, WHY did the prison allow van der Sloot to have an unsupervised visit -- with a woman, no less? I don't mean to sound overly cynical, but hello?! Look at this guy's track record!! That's like giving a caged lion an "unsupervised visit" with a big hunk of raw meat. I'm sure it'll be fine. Perhaps the guard was drugged taking a nap?
I don't know, but I do have a feeling this isn't the last we'll hear of van der Sloot.
Do you think someone like Joran van der Sloot should be allowed to have unsupervised visits?
