A native of the Netherlands, Joran van der Sloot — the prime suspect in the disappearance and potential death of Natalee Holloway — is currently in prison in Peru. Van der Sloot received that sentence for the 2010 murder of Stephany Flores Ramírez, to which van der Sloot confessed, Dutch Review reports. He reportedly killed Ramírez after she confronted him regarding a possible connection to the Natalee Holloway case.
Prior to the van der Sloot trial for Ramírez’s murder, his lawyer, Joe Tacopina (pictured) — who now represents former president Donald Trump in ongoing legal matters — appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” when van der Sloot was taken into custody. At that time, CBS News said Tacopina urged no one “rush to judgment” about the potential guilt of his client. In that same interview, Tacopina said there were, in his view, inconsistencies in the official narrative surrounding Ramírez’s murder.
Speaking on “The Early Show,” Tacopina added: “I’m not taking the position that [van der Sloot, his client, was] being wrongly accused. … What I do say is that Joran van der Sloot is an easy guy to point the finger at. He’s a popular suspect, he’s someone who people believe — people have very strong opinions about this — that he got away with murder, literally, in Aruba which, the evidence says otherwise, the judges have said. otherwise. But he’s someone who is easy to point the finger at, he wears a bulls-eye on his back.”
