Joran Van Der Sloot The FBI has strongly denied paying thousands of dollars of sting money to the Dutch citizen, Joran Van der Sloot. Sloot is in custody in Peru on the charge of killing of the 21 year old Stephany Flores Ramirez.

Slot is also the chief suspect in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Holloway went missing in May 2005 while she was on a high school graduation trip to Aruba. Sloot was twice arrested in connection with Holloway but was released due to lack of evidence.

Reports have been circulating lately that the FBI paid $25,000 to Sloot as sting money and asked him to help them build a murder case. He reportedly approached someone close to the family of Holloway and asked for $250000 for giving information about the place where her body was on Aruba. Sloot used the money from FBI to head to Peru from Aruba. Sloot is now in imprisonment in Peru for the murder of business student Ramirez.

Officials in U.S. have confirmed that they were investigating the criminal conduct of Sloot but have firmly said that no money given to him was from private funds. They added the their investigation was still on when Sloot left for Aruba ,and it wasn’t strong enough for arresting him.
