Joran Van Der Sloot,
prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, will be extradited to the United States in 2038 after he completes a 28-year prison sentence in Peru for the brutal murder of a woman
In the U.S. van der Sloot stands accused of extorting money from the Holloway's mother, having allegedly promised to describe the circumstances of Holloway's death and information as to the whereabouts
of her body in return for monetary compensation. He has since been indicted on federal charges of extortion and wire fraud by U.S. authorities, according to CNN
Holloway, an 18-year-old from Mountain Brook, Ala., was on a graduation trip to Aruba with other seniors when she went missing.

Despite an extensive search, which involved the FBI, Dutch Air Force and local Aruban authorities, Holloway was never found. The 18-year-old was declared legally dead by an Alabama judge on January 12, 2012.
Holloway was last seen sitting in a car outside a bar with van der Sloot and a pair of brothers, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, which made them the prime suspects in her disappearance. The case against the three suspects was dropped in December of 2007 by local prosecutors due to what they said was a lack of evidence.
In 2012 Peruvian courts convicted van der Sloot of murdering 21-year-old Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room. Investigators believe Flores' death stemmed from her having become aware of information connected to Holloway's disappearance on van der Sloot's computer.
Van der Sloot subsequently stole money and credit cards from Flores before fleeing Peru for Chile, where he was arrested several days later.
When sentenced in 2012, Peruvian courts gave him two years short of the maximum 30-year sentence for murder, considering the violent nature in which Flores was killed which involved her being bludgeoned and asphyxiated to death, according to an autopsy.
