Joran Van Der Sloot, the man responsible for killing Peruvian student Stephany Flores, is currently spending quite a bit of time behind bars for his heinous crime. In addition to this murder, Van Der Sloot is also the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, who went missing after leaving an Oranjestad bar with Joran and two of his associates back in 2005. To this day, Natalee's body has not been found. To make a long story short, Van Der Sloot isn't a very nice guy, and he's going to be spending a lot of time in prison for his actions.
Despite all of those strikes against him, rumors are currently swirling that Joran is a few steps away from getting married behind bars. Never mind that the guy has a history of butchering women -- he's a catch in someone's eyes, and they want to make their relationship official. This bizarre little story comes on the heels of reports that Van Der Sloot had fathered a child while behind bars, though his partner in reproduction has publicly stated the child isn't his. Why in the world anyone would want to help this man breed is beyond my realm of comprehension.
Although details about the potential marriage are sketchy -- his lawyer has stated that he wasn't hired to deal with Joran's social commitments -- some are speculating this whole wedding nonsense is just an act. The Daily Beast is reporting that Van Der Sloot is looking to have his sentence overturned due to the "poor legal advice" he received upon his arrest. His attorney stated that, since he admitted to the murder, he should have only received 15 years for the crime, as opposed to the 28 he's serving right now.
Falling in love with prisoners, regardless of how disturbed or unbalanced they are, is really nothing new. Some women have become so obsessed with their incarcerated Romeos that they've lost their jobs, their families, and their friends as a result. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Joran gets proposals from lovesick ladies several times a year.
