The world held only possibilities for 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, with graduation behind her and a freshman year ahead at the University of Alabama. But that world was cut short when she disappeared ten years ago on a sun-soaked trip to Aruba with her senior classmates to celebrate their achievement before going their separate ways.

Joran van der Sloot, who pleaded guilty Wednesday to the 2010 murder of a Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino, was sentenced on Friday to 28 years in prison. He was also fined nearly $74,000 by the three-judge panel.
While the lengthly list of charges was read in court, van der Sloot, wearing a greet T-shirt and sweating, hung down his head. Earlier, he told the court he was "truly sorry" for the killing of 21-year-old Stephany Flores and said that he had initially wanted to "confess sincerely" for his crime.
His murder victim, Flores, was killed five years to the day after the American teen Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba, a case in which van der Sloot remains the prime suspect.
