Joran van der Sloot has made headlines for years, and not for the right reasons. The Dutchman has been accused of various crimes, including the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway in 2005. Holloway vanished during a trip to Aruba and was never seen again. Van der Sloot has been the primary suspect in the case, but no charges were ever filed due to a lack of evidence.

However, van der Sloot has landed in the United States, where he is facing federal extortion charges. He is accused of attempting to extort $250,000 from Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway, in exchange for information about her daughter's disappearance. According to court documents, van der Sloot promised to reveal the location of Holloway's body and discuss her final moments.

The case is not the first time van der Sloot has been accused of extortion. In 2010, he was arrested in Peru for murdering a young woman. However, before he was charged, he attempted to extort $250,000 from her family in exchange for information about her death.

Van der Sloot has a history of erratic and violent behavior. He has been linked to other disappearances and unsolved cases,
