The Peruvian magazine Panorama alleges that Joran van der Sloot has stabbed three fellow prisoners, with at least one victim needing emergency medical care. When asked what caused the confrontation, Van der Sloot claims to have become enraged when he discovered one of the other inmates reading a news article about the Natalie Holloway case without his permission. In a similar twist of fate, the inmate who received emergency medical care had apparently previously seen a TV news report about Joran. The third stabbing victim was chosen according to van der Sloot, “just because I like odd numbers”. Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s Peruvian attorney immediately filed a petition claiming his client was provoked to use deadly force due to a sudden case of violent emotions, temporary insanity and prison morning breath.
