You would think that the logical thing to do immediately after brutally murdering someone in your hotel room would be to either freak out or try to cover up the evidence, or both, but, evidently, there’s nothing logical going on in the mind of suspected serial killer Joran Van Der Sloot.
In the latest weird detail to emerge from the gruesome murder investigation, Joran confessed to Peruvian police that he sat on the edge of his hotel bed, right next to the bloodied body of 21-year-old Stephanie Flores, and snacked on sponge cake and espresso immediately following her death, reports the New York Post. Never mind that there was blood oozing out of her head or that one of her eyes was dangling out of its socket, killing somebody seems to have made Joran work up an appetite.

Joran, who is considered to be the number one suspect in the 2005 disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, confessed to Stephanie Flores’ murder after police discovered her battered body in his hotel room several days later.
"I did not want to do it," he reportedly told the cops after his arrest. "The girl intruded into my private life. She had no right."
According to the Post, Joran met Stephanie at a casino and later slipped her a date-rape drug and took her up to his hotel room. When Stephanie reportedly refused to sleep with him, telling him that she was a lesbian, they decided to sleep off their hangovers instead. The next morning, Joran went out for espresso and cake, and when he came back, Stephanie had evidently Googled him, using his laptop, which supposedly prompted her murder.
"I was going to use one of my suitcases to get rid of the body, but I didn't do it because I was afraid that I would be detained leaving the hotel with my baggage and not paying the bill," Joran, who lost all of his money gambling, additionally confessed. Upon his arrest, the police found a chart with information about Peru’s coastal tides on him, which led them to suspect that Joran may have planned on dumping Stephanie’s body in the ocean.

Sadly, Natalee Hollway’s final resting place may have been the sea as well, although, unlike Stephanie Flores, her remains may never be found.
