Charges seem to be mounting for Joran van der Sloot who is already being held for the murder of a Peruvian girl and trying to extort money from the family of the late Natalee Holloway.
Joran van der Sloot, who is being held on charges of murdering a Peruvian girl, has long been a suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, and is now being tied to a sex trafficking charge in Thailand.
Thai officials have informed officials in Peru that they are pursuing charges of sex trafficking against van der Sloot, CBS reports. He has long been rumored to be associated with illegal sex trading.
In 2008, Peter de Vries, a Dutch journalist secretly recorded Van der Sloot in Bangkok with two women and two men, who were acting as trade bosses. van der Sloot was promising the girls they would be working as models in Holland. In reality they would go to Holland but as prostitutes.
van der Sloot even talked with Gretta Van Susteren as part of her show, "On the Record" where he accepted a bag of money for Holloway to sell her into the sex trafficking industry. He later called back to Van Susteren and claimed he lied about what he said.
For now though this is just one more chapter of the story of Joran van der Sloot that is going to have to unfold in-front of the world.
