The mother of missing teenager Natalee Holloway sneaked into the Peruvian prison where suspect Joran van der Sloot is being held and confronted him about fate of her daughter, according to local news reports.
Beth Holloway-Twitty arrived at Castro Castro Prison with a Dutch journalist, Peter de Vries, who is investigating her daughter’s disappearance for Dutch television, the Peruvian news program 24 HORAS reported.
Holloway-Twitty was reportedly able to speak to Van der Sloot for five minutes Wednesday before she was removed by the authorities because she did not have permission to talk to him.
Van der Sloot is being held in the prison on charges that he killed another woman, Stephany Flores, in his hotel room in Lima, Peru, on May 30 — 5 years to the day after Holloway’s disappearance.
Holloway was last seen alive with him on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba in 2005 and he has publicly said he killed her and then retracted his confession several times.
