Exactly 5 years after Joran Van der Sloot was questioned for the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, he has now been linked to the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores, whose body was found in Lima on Wednesday. Joran Van der Sloot was stopped and questioned by police in central Chile after traveling hundreds of miles south of the border.

However, no arrest warrant has been issued - though he's still one of the main suspects. So, what does all this have to do with poker? The Latin American Poker Tour was being held close to where Van der Sloot was stopped, and rumors say that he was in that area to take part in the tournament. We will probably hear more about this in the next few days.
