It appears that allegedly murdering two young women in Aruba and Peru makes you something of a chick magnet. Murder suspect Joran van der Sloot, 22, has received multiple marriage proposals from Peruvian women. In the meantime, one woman (his mother) says “he is not right in the head.”
Van der Sloot is in jail for allegedly killing 21-year-old Peruvian Stephany Flores. He told a newspaper that one woman asked him to help her bear his child.
Notably, in Peru, he faces a sentence of 15 to 35 years, if convicted.
This is a fascinating phenomenon with women and murderers. We saw that same proposals in cases of Eric and Lyle Menendez, Ted Bundy and other famous killers. In the case of Scott Peterson, his first proposal arrived only hours after being put on death row for murdering his wife. Richard Ramirez, the “Night Stalker” who killed 13 people and is a practicing Satanist, married Doreen Lioy, a freelance magazine editor, in 1996 after an 11-year courtship in which she wrote him 75 letters in prison.

I expect they believe he has life insurance, soon to become collectable.
Love, the need for acceptance, belief in someone, you name it people do all sorts of things for various and different reasons….
This guy will not make it past his first year in Prison. The young girl that he killed this time has money. The girls father is invested in the casino and a former jockey. I bet he has better connections than John Gotti.
Good story, was there something wrong with her? i.e. a third nose or triple chin, a large mole perhaps?
What would compel her to do such a stupid thing?
I knew a woman attorney who was bamboozled by an inmate at Waupan Prison in WI into thinking she was the love of his life. She dropped everything she was working on and spent most of her time filing briefs to get him out of the slammer. As soon as he was released, he disappeared.
I was working as a law student intern in a legal assistance to inmates pro bono program where I helped draft habeus corpus briefs for inmates at Waupan. I remember seeing this woman in her trips to Waupan and everyone was mortified for her, foreseeing exactly what would happen.
Self-destructive behavior manifests in decidedly perverse ways.
