A Dutch reporter says that Joran Van der Sloot, a suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. high school student Natalee Holloway in Aruba, is involved in selling Thai women into prostitution.
Although he was arrested a couple times in connection with Holloway's
much-publicized disappearance, Aruban judges say that there is not enough evidence to pursue a case against Van der Sloot.
This is the second hidden camera report that journalist Peter De Vries has made about Van der Sloot. In the first one, Van der Sloot reportedly admits on camera that he disposed of Holloway's body after she began shaking and died as they kissed.
The Holloway case was fixture on the 24-hours news channels for the better part of a year after she was reported missing. Holloway was in Aruba with classmates and chaperones as part of a senior trip.
A county sheriff in western Oklahoma has been charged with turning female inmates in his jail into sex slaves, the Associated Press has reported.
Custer County Sheriff Mike Burgess, who has resigned, reportedly coerced and bribed the women to take part. Prosecutors have filed 35 felony charges against Burgess, including 14 counts of second-degree rape, seven counts of forcible oral sodomy and five counts of bribery by a public official.
Burgess' attorney says the former sheriff is anxious to get to court and clear his name.
