Joran Van Der Sloot confessed to murdering two women and his mother cries mental illness and the death of Slootâ€™s father caused him to do it.
Anita Van Der Sloot wants everyone to know her son had been suffering from mental illness and had he accepted help, he wouldnâ€™t have been in this situation.
According to MSNBC, Anita Van Der Sloot stated that:
"Joran is sick in his head, but he wanted no help. He was a sweet boy who loved animals and his grandmotherâ€¦ Funny, open. He has gradually lost its way. It was insidious.â€
On why she believed the death of Slootâ€™s father caused his mental illness to worsen:
"Two days Joran cried. He even hung over the coffin, sobbing. It's my fault, Dad," he said. "I have caused your heart attack." She went on to say that Sloot flew to Peru to escape being committed to a clinic.
And on the murders themselves:
"I felt he had nothing to do with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005. He had left her on the beach. I still believe that. But, Stephany, he may have killed."
Okayâ€¦mental illness or not, Sloot is a dangerous man and he is best locked up. Sloot is currently being held at Lima's Miguel Castro Prison and rumor has it that Sloot may get killed there!
