The main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of high school student Natalee Holloway reportedly has devised a plan to sell the untold details of the case while he is extradited to the United States, according to sources.
As Front Page Detectives previously reported, 35-year-old Joran van der Sloot was extradited to Alabama to face extortion and fraud charges after he allegedly attempted to get money from the Holloway family in 2010. Prosecutors claim he promised to lead the family to her body in exchange for $250,000 – $25,000 to disclose the location of the girl's remains and then another $225,000 when her body was located.
Holloway has never been found and her family had her declared legally dead in 2012.
Now, according to reports, sources say van der Sloot is trying to allegedly get money in connection with the case.
