John Christopher Ludwick — the man who claimed he helped dispose of Natalee Holloway’s body in 2005 — has been killed. The 32-year-old criminal was fatally stabbed by a woman after he tried to abduct her while she was leaving her house. Ludwick was discovered by police as he lay wounded on the side of the road.

He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead soon after.

As readers know, Ludwick previously alleged that Holloway’s killer, Joran van der Sloot, paid him to dispose of the high schooler’s remains after he murdered her in Aruba.

The now-deceased man even led cops to the area where he claimed he'd left Holloway’s body, though investigators later discovered the parts belonged to someone else. His story was never proven to be true.

According to the New York Post, Police said that the woman Ludwick was trying to abduct on Wednesday, March 14, was actually someone he was “familiar with.” The case is still being investigated.
