Does Peru have the death penalty? Maybe if they do he can plea-bargain for life in prison by telling what really happened to Natalie. (Then again, not having seen a Peruvian prison, possibly he'd prefer death.)
I'm glad that they caught him. I hope that he gets what he deserves--he certainly hasn't been acting like an innocent man.
If anything good comes of this awful situation, it's that the Holloway family may finally get some answers if he spills the beans, and the other suspects in the Holloway case, if they are innocent, can get their names cleared.
But he might wish they had it, given he would be culturally considered a child killer, which in US prisons occupies the absolute bottom rung in terms of status. He couldn't be housed with their general population - they would probably kill him just as soon as look at him.
Please bring me up to speed: was there a lot of good evidence that he killed that American girl? And if so, how did he get off?

Whatever his father did or didn't do to cover things up will probably be debated until the end of time. But the truth is that this guy probably executed the perfect crime - through luck not planning - and got away with it. It looks like he went back to the well one too many times though. It will be interesting to see what comes of this case.
Probably as most parents - can't believe that their child would/could do something like this. Or are you saying this because of some connection to his not being charged in the Natalie Hollaway's case? or what. As a parent you really don't or can't believe that your child has done something so hienous.
