Life is "tough" for convicted killer Joran van der Sloot! The man who brutally murdered Stephany Flores and was once suspected of slaughtering Natalee Holloway complained about his life behind bars in a bombshell video obtained by RadarOnline.com and The National ENQUIRER.
Van der Sloot has been serving time for the 2010 Flores murder at Challapalca prison, the "Alcatraz of the Andes," since 2014. It was there, high in the mountains, that an operative for Radar and The ENQUIRER captured the jaw-dropping look inside the mind of the sadistic killer during a hidden camera interview on February 1, 2016.
Laughing and grinning, a boastful van der Sloot showed off a large scar, thought to be sustained during an alleged stabbing at Challapalca in late 2014.
"When you got stabbed in here, was it some kind of a crazy inmate?" the undercover journalist asked. "Or was it a planned attack?"
"Yes I was purposely attacked," van der Sloot, 28, bragged. "But now I am relocated to another area. … for safekeeping."
Van der Sloot revealed that he does have two roommates, but said that he might have more room in his cell soon, as one is expected to be transferred imminently.
Though he does not have television, he claimed, "I read a lot," and his wife, Leidy, whom he married in 2014, visits for holidays and as often as she can otherwise. He admitted, "I'm really lucky in that regard."
"Yes, considering the circumstances I'm doing fine," the twisted killer boasted.
"During the years of my imprisonment, I've always been able to work, and not in a very legal fashion," he grinned. "But I have always maintained a pretty good income." Van der Sloot previously served time in a Lima jail, but was sent to Challapalca in 2014 over threats to kill a guard.
With the tougher security at Challapalca, he said, his illegal scheming has come to an abrupt end: "It was very tough that they sent me here where I can do nothing."
Van der Sloot pleaded guilty to the "qualified murder" of Peruvian woman Flores in 2012. He was jailed in connection with Hollway's murder in 2009, but was released due to lack of evidence.
