Move over Jake Pavelka, there’s a new bachelor in town, and his name is… Joran van der Sloot?!?
Yes, that’s right, RadarOnline.com has learned that van der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutchman who admitted to Peruvian authorities that he killed 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez on May 30, told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf on Tuesday that’s he’s been receiving many marriage proposals while in prison.
“One of them even wants me to get her pregnant,” van der Sloot told the paper.
While sounding bizarre, the phenomenon has actually occurred before in the case of other convicted killers including Scott Peterson, “The Nightstalker” Richard Ramirez and Polly Klass killer Richard Allen Davis.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, while van der Sloot admitted killing Flores Ramirez, he now says he only confessed because he was intimidated and was promised he would be extradited to the Netherlands.
If convicted, he faces a sentence of 15 to 35 years.
Van der Sloot is also a suspect in connection with the mysterious disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, who vanished while on a vacation in Aruba back in 2005.
Superior Court Judge Carlos Morales visited Van der Sloot on Monday at the maximum-security prison in eastern Lima where he is being held, but van der Sloot refused to answer questions, on instruction from his lawyer.
According to a transcript of the confession, van der Sloot elbowed Flores Ramirez in the nose, strangled her with both hands, threw her to the floor, took off his bloodied shirt and asphyxiated her inside his hotel room in Lima.
RadarOnline.com was first to publish exclusive photos from inside the crime scene.
De Telegraaf reported Tuesday that van der Sloot expressed no remorse at Flores Ramirez’ death during the 20-minute interview its reporter conducted with him in his cell. The paper said van der Sloot claimed to have been “tricked” and that he would “explain later how it all happened.”
However, the paper said van der Sloot would not answer direct questions about whether he killed Flores Ramirez.
“It’s my own fault I’m here” he was quoted saying, adding that he expected to spend two years in jail before his trial.
Van der Sloot’s mother Anita has said her son suffers from mental problems. She says she doesn’t believe he killed Holloway, but if he killed Flores Ramirez, he would have to face his punishment and she wouldn’t visit him in jail.
The suspect was quoted by the paper Tuesday as saying he understood his mother’s position.
“I have hurt her and too many other people,” De Telegraaf quoted him saying. “If only I had listened to her.”
