More than ten years after the death of Natalee Holloway, her family — and the entire world — still have no idea what happened to her in the final hours of her young life. But now, in a joint investigation, RadarOnline.com and The National ENQUIRER have learned that the truth could finally be revealed at last: The most notorious former suspect in her murder, Dutch killer Joran van der Sloot, has claimed he’ll reveal bombshell new information about the case in an explosive tell-all book!
Van der Sloot revealed the news on a hidden camera video obtained by a Radar and The National ENQUIRER operative, taken in the Challapalca prison in Peru on February 1,2016. He’s been locked away there since 2014 after pleading guilty to the 2010 murder of Peruvian woman Stephany Flores. Now that case, and also Holloway’s, could be at the center of his earthshattering new confession.
At 500 pages, the book, written with a ghost writer, “depicts me as a terrible person,” van der Sloot admitted. But if it’s published, “It’s completely over. In every way you can imagine," he said. "Then the case will be solved and this is done.”
“The book contains two parts,” he revealed, and begins with the story of what happened to Holloway “of course.”
From there, “I explain how I meet a group of people with whom I visit casinos and so on ...” he said. “Gambling has always been my biggest problem.”
But overall, he revealed, it will be explosive -- and potentially dangerous.
“I think that I’m telling some different aspects that I haven’t told in the past …” he said. “...things that people have never known about.”
For one, he claimed, “people kept sending me money during the entire captivity” as a form of blackmail for keeping their secrets safe.
“Otherwise I will tell people what I know,” he explained, “and they’ve always sent me their money.”
“I’m very sure that when the book gets published, the Justice Dept. would want to know more about those people,” he bragged. “Not a single doubt in my mind.”
For that reason, however, it could even be deadly.
“I think the content of my writing can cause some harm,” he claimed. “It can cause me harm...”
And so, he’s hoping to hold out for a major payday.
“I want the maximum amount of money,” he said. “...So I can take care of my family financially.”
Van der Sloot married local woman Leidy Figueroa behind bars in 2014, and she bore him a daughter in September 2014.
“Since I got to know Leidy here, I only do good things,” he insisted in the video. “Not bad things anymore. Leidy got to know me after all the bad things I did, and from now on I will never do any bad anymore.”
