Matt Holloway Battle for Truth: Natalee Holloway’s brother, Matt, harbors serious skepticism about Joran van der Sloot’s claimed religious transformation after the murder of his sister. A former correctional officer, Matt believes many inmates turn to religion, but he perceives van der Sloot as insincere in his professed change.
Matt contends that van der Sloot’s admission of Natalee’s death was driven by selfish motives, particularly due to striking a plea deal. With a background in corrections, Matt emphatically pledges to confront van der Sloot physically when the killer is released.
Van der Sloot recently received a 20-year sentence in Alabama for extortion and wire fraud, coupled with a confession to Natalee’s murder. However, this term will run concurrently with the 22 years he still faces in Peru for the murder of another woman and drug trafficking.
The potential release date for van der Sloot is June 2045, at the age of 57. In discussions with Matt, he delves into the challenges of prosecuting van der Sloot for Natalee’s murder years ago, citing interference by van der Sloot’s father, a prominent attorney in Aruba.
Matt strongly believes corruption played a role in van der Sloot eluding authorities for over a decade. He calls out Aruba, asserting that the government intentionally mishandled the case. Matt urges the Aruban government to explore possible charges against van der Sloot now that he has admitted to killing Natalee and misleading the police.
In van der Sloot’s chilling confession, he describes brutally attacking Natalee with a cinder block on the beach in 2005 after she resisted his sexual advances.
Matt reveals that he recently spoke to his mom, Beth, who expressed a sense of relief for the first time in nearly two decades
