U.S. releases that Natalee Holloway's mother is named victim in extortion charges against Joran van der Sloot-money wire transfer occurred in exchange for location of Natalee Holloway's body but van der Sloot led police to a dead end.
U.S. Police and authorities are trying to extradite van der Sloot to the U.S., to face criminal extortion and wire fraud charges filed in the state of Alabama. Police say van der Sloot attempted to financially extort $250,000 in total from Natalee Holloway's mother, according to Interpol police. U.S. legal authorities announced Alabama arrest warrant for van der Sloot last week, but police or legal authorities had not yet named the victim in the extortion and wire fraud charges.
In an Interpol document from CNN, American law authorities ask Peruvian police to arrest van der Sloot and begin a process of extradition of the Dutchman, to the United States, to face criminal charges in Alabama. The U.S. legal document states that Peruvian police authorities can hold van der Sloot if he is facing criminal charges in Peru. While Peru police say van der Sloot killed Stephany Flores and are detaining him related to the crime, also obtaining a confession from van der Sloot as to the death of Flores, Peru has yet to actually file criminal charges against the Dutchman. Peruvian law dictates that a re-enactment of the crime must first occur, before criminal charges are filed, to determine what type of charges will be filed (i.e., homicide/murder, manslaughter, etc.).
U.S. police claim that, around March 29 of this year, van der Sloot contacted a representative of Natalee Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway. The Dutch citizen, van der Sloot, who was originally arrested twice in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway but released for lack of evidence, was never charged with Natalee Holloway's death or murder.
U.S. authorities say van der Sloot said, in March, that he would reveal the location of Natalee Holloway's body-which has never been found-and the circumstances surrounding her death in exchange for $25,000 in cash but that Joran van der Sloot asked for $250,000 in total, the legal document states.
Van der Sloot and Holloway's representative met in the country of Aruba, where a money payment of $10,000 was made to Joran van der Sloot, followed by a transfer of $15,000 to a personal bank account in the Netherlands.
Following the money transfer to his bank account, van der Sloot showed Beth Holloway a house where supposedly Natalee Holloway's body remains existed, according to the document. Records showed that the house which van der Sloot led the Holloway representative had not yet been built or existed at the time of Natalee Holloway's disappearance. Interpol police say van der Sloot admitted that he lied about the location of the Holloway remains at the house.
