Of course this monster would laugh about something so serious!
As a reminder, Joran van der Sloot is in jail for a first-degree murder charge in the death of Stephany Ramirez Flores, and he is the prime suspect in the Natalee Holloway disappearance case.
Earlier this week, Van der Sloot was accused of stabbing three fellow inmates in his Peruvian jail, and given his violent history, it definitely seemed like it could be true.
Now, Joran's lawyer Maximo Altez Navarro is saying that his client "burst out laughing" after hearing the new accusations against him.
Here's what Navarro had to say about it:
“Joran is doing okay – he burst out laughing when I told him about the story."
“The truth is he gets on with the other inmates and prison officers – he is the most famous prisoner in Peru. He is even teaching the other inmates and prisoners English and he is quite popular actually."
“These stories are only coming-out to discredit him because of the cases he is involved with. Joran is a good guy. He goes to church and likes to exercise and read while he regularly talks with his mother on the phone."
“He is not even housed with the general prison population; he’s kept with five other prisoners in a special unit where he has his own cell.”
He's a good guy? Sorry, we're not buying that, and we're still not convinced that he had nothing to do with these stabbings.
Guess we'll see what happens, but we don't trust Joran one bit, and we still believe he is a monster.
