He Looks Like Brad Pitt? Not...

Joran van der Sloot is getting multiple marriage proposals while awaiting trial and being held at the Peruvian prison Miguel Castro Castro?


Someone thinks he looks like Brad Pitt?


Yeah, right.

I really don't get why many serial killers (Bundy, Ramierez, etc.) and violent murderers attract such romantic attention either after being sentenced to death row or confined to a life of staring at walls.

I tried reading a few articles on the topic, but concluded that the experts are simply guessing as to an answer as well.

I do believe that Joran will likely need those "relationship" escapes to survive his incarceration considering he is temporarily in a correctional institution where, back in January, the new warden was murdered on the premises on his first day on the job.

Prison life will not get much better if, as most insiders expect, Joran is transferred to Lurigancho Prison--which is considered one of the world's worst facilities.

Perhaps, the other inmates will just want Van der Sloot to sign a copy of their Ocean's 11, 12, and 13 DVDs.

Oh dear ... Girls!

Some sick people out there. All I can guess is that they have this need to save people and think they will be the one who is different...
As for me? I don't think killer = sexy.

Some women are just stupid.

Matthew Rush said...

That is really messed up. I assume he must be in protective custody?

I guess he's the ultimate bad boy. Gag.

I'm with Sister Copinherhair - some women are just stupid.

He is NO Brad Pitt!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I don't get it. Are some girls really that desperate?

Ann T. said...

Dear Slamdunk,
Like all, I think this is sick. But let's don't forget, if he looked on the outside the way he operates on the inside, he would not have been so successful in eluding capture or capturing his victims.

Something about him is compelling, or at least, disarming. This is important for all of us to remember on the way to our street smarts.

But, oh, Ick! I wonder if they do think they can reform him? Ick, no, not a chance!!

I don't get it, either.

Watching to see how this story unfolds...

Clara said...

Ok, these women are sick, CRAZY!
Hail no, this seriously creeped me out, Slam! Unbelievable!!!!

My Husband's Watching TV... said...

Ew ew ew!!! He so does NOT look like Brad Pitt!

MONICA-LnP said...

NOT!
He is a SICKO and so are the women who NOW know about him and still want him.
I was listening to talk radio yesterday and heard about this craziness!

tuckerfamily said...

In the article you linked, his mother won't even have anything to do with him . . . stating he has mental problems. Yike, ladies, thats pretty bad when the mama doesn't even want to stand up for him.

I don't understand . . . birds of a feather flock together, as my mom always said . . . if what he has allegedly done doesn't make someone wanna run away, that someone is most likely mental as well.

James (SeattleDad) said...

Yeah, I doubt he will be a pretty boy for very much longer. They will probably make short work of him in there.

Sultana said...

Doesn't look like Brad Pitt to me at all.

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

Are these women so desparate and crazy? What do they think their lives would be like if he were set free and pursued them for a relationship? I just don't get the sick attraction to these criminals!

Luisa Doraz said...

Some people have to reason their life away. Have a great weekend. :)

Herding Cats said...

Seriously? Brad Pitt? I would be so offended if I was Brad Pitt.

BobKat said...

People ought to read the book, "Nice Guys Don't Get laid", by Marcus P. Meleton, Jr. Not to offend genuine marriage minded folks, but some nice guys do want to get laid, and Mr. Meleton's book really cracked me up, but sadly, what he wrote was true, as from my experiences, I know.

Charles Manson has no shortage of women wanted him... What one commenter, Donna M. Kohlstrom, said, I believe is true. What I don't agree with is that "women are stupid".

There's a science - sociology, it's called, that deals with people and society, and much still needs to be explained. We still know very little about what makes us tick... and we have wide disagreement often on how should should act, and what we should believe.

Unfortunately, in the meantime I'm quite nice and single, and Joran is weaving his tales of fantasy and truths.

No, he looks nothing like Brad Pitt... but he could be, not!

Beth Zimmerman said...

It must not be that unusual. There was a TV series about people who married people in prison on TLC recently. Don't know if it's still on or not. Crazy people!

lifeshighway said...

He could probably look like a day old dried up baked potato and still get the same reaction from the ladies who are attracted to celebrity killers.

Thank you for stopping by. I am enjoying your blog!

We were talking about this the other day with regard to the chap who has just been executed by firing squad and didn't draw any meaningful conclusions. Human beings are very odd and complex creatures.

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

That is quite messed up. Some women are really confused. I can't get it.

Erin said...

yeah he may look a little like brad pit but umm really would you want to be with someone that did or maybe did kill someone NO THANK YOU . . that is just asking for it.

sheri said...

great post!! i've just so tickled that joran has finally been apprehended that i haven't put much thought into whether he looked like brad pitt...or not!
you've got to wonder what kind of life all those gals have who would like to marry joran? maybe all the slots of cheerleaders have been filled?

kj said...

Well, he may look like Brad but that doesn't make him someone to look up to..

Holly said...

He is icky and some women figure it is better to have a man in prison than no man at all I suppose. I hope he enjoy his new prison and that his new friends greet him. I will celebrate that he is behind bars.

Audrey Allure said...

Haha, I think it might be the bad boy aspect. Or maybe just desperate factor.

Lisa and Laura said...

Ugh...so sad. I just hope justice is served--I still think about Natalie Holloway.

Diana said...

Oh that is just wrong. What is it with these girls, huh! For some reason, some people are drawn to "bad" elements.

I'm so thankful for my sweet Christian husband... God and my husband are all I need. :-)

jodeeluna said...

I have often thought of the anguish this young man has already caused. How interesting that scandal follows him once again. I just do not understand what would possess these women to become so attracted to this.

Luisa Doraz said...

I really enjoy visiting your blog to see all of the comments. You have a lot of fun here with many wise folks. :) Have a great week. :)

Katherine Mercurio Gotthardt said...

What the HELL!

kimmib said...

Oh gosh! He totally creeps me out! Especially the way he looked SO smug! Bleh!

Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way... I love yours! I'll definitely be back again. :)

Miss Caitlin S. said...

So disgusting, the same thing happened with Scott Peterson if I do recall. I do feel that his looks played a role in him charming and wooing these victims of his- the whole story just makes me sad.

Momma Fargo said...

Girls are so...well...dumb. And I hope he pees himself every night in those nasty walls that surround him. Wow. I don't even know the guy and I don't like him.

Adie said...

In this case I would say the individuals are suicidal. People are Nutso. And these are the women that you should really NEVER try to figure out. I am assuming the proposals are from woman.
