"and agents decided to set him up with a $25,000 payoff, a source told The Post yesterday.
An intermediary acting under the direction of the FBI gave van der Sloot the dough in Aruba on May 10"
I pray that laptop is going to take him down -- and hopefully a few of his buddies from Aruba along with him.
Interesting parts on page 2 of the NY Post article:
Then, around March 29, he contacted high-profile New York lawyer John Kelly, who had represented Holloway's mom in an ultimately unsuccessful lawsuit against van der Sloot.
"Joran reached out and said something like, 'My dad died, and we need some cash. If you guys give me some money, I'll come clean, and give you the whole story' " about Holloway, according to one source.
The suspect originally demanded $250,000 from Twitty, an Alabama resident, in exchange for his information, according to federal authorities.
After some negotiation, a source said, a meeting was arranged in Aruba between van der Sloot and someone who was ostensibly acting on Twitty's behalf.
That meeting was secretly videotaped by the FBI, the source said.
At the meeting, Twitty's representative "gave him $10,000 in cash" and had another $15,000 wired -- purportedly from the mom to a financial institution in Aruba, which is a territory of the Netherlands.
Van der Sloot "counted the money twice," the source said.
"It was sting money, it was the FBI's money," the source said.
An Interpol document says that in exchange for the money, van der Sloot showed the intermediary a house where Holloway's remains were supposedly hidden, CNN reported.
But records soon showed that the house wasn't even built when she disappeared -- and van der Sloot immediately confessed that he had been lying, the news channel said.
Shortly after that meeting, "the FBI was warned by Aruban authorities that he was leaving the country," the source said. "And the FBI apparently did nothing."
"I did hear that [Holloway's family] was p- - -ed off. They were told that an arrest was going to happen before he left. And he left," the source said. "[Twitty] was pretty upset.
"This would have given them the opportunity to have their day in court with him in the United States."
IMO, Greta is a reliable journalist regarding information surrounding the extortion/wire fraud. Greta reported details last Friday about finding out that John Q Kelly was in Aruba, I believe she stated 2 times in May. Piece by piece Greta started to post info about the details and then on Saturday, on Geraldo, Bo Dietl talked more about the finer details revealing there was $10,000.00 first before the $15,000.00 wire transfer.
None of the news stations dived into the details once the US Attorney went on air regarding the arrest warrant for extortion/wire fraud.
Now everyone is grabbing for details and reporting via sources.

"Police had originally planned to reenact the crime on Tuesday, but they did not receive notification from the prosecutor’s office.
It is now scheduled for Wednesday, but no time has been specified.
Under the warrant issued for van der Sloot, the police have seven days from June 5 to complete the investigation. The prosecutor’s office will then determine the charges that will be filed.
Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
