Joran van der Sloot, the primary suspect in the infamous 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, has arrived in the United States from Peru, ready to confront allegations of extortion against the missing teen’s mother, Your Content has learned.

Van der Sloot was transported by an FBI-operated plane to Birmingham’s Shuttlesworth Airport and subsequently taken into custody upon his arrival.

He is set to appear in federal court in Birmingham on Friday, as confirmed by court records. Van der Sloot, previously serving a 28-year prison sentence in Peru for the murder of a Peruvian woman, now faces charges of extortion and wire fraud related to Holloway’s case.

The long-awaited development brings both sorrow and hope to Beth Holloway, Natalee’s mother, who has relentlessly pursued justice for her daughter’s abduction and murder.

Natalee Holloway disappeared during a high school graduation trip in Aruba, last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot, who was attending an international school on the island.
