Beth Holloway confronted the only suspect in her daughter's death after sneaking into the Peruvian prison where he is being held. Holloway told Joran Van Der Sloot she had "no hate in her soul" for him during the brief confrontation, MSNBC reports. Holloway had no permission to enter the prison, and she and the Dutch TV journalist she entered the prison with were soon taken away by guards.

Van Der Sloot—who extorted $25,000 from the Holloway family by offering to reveal the location of their daughter's body—refused to answer direct questions about Natalee Holloway and handed her mother his lawyer's business card. The Dutchman's lawyer says Dutch media is working on a TV special featuring Beth Holloway and the family of the young Peruvian girl Van Der Sloot is accused of murdering.
