LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Leydi Figueroa Uceda (photos below), Leidi, and Joran Van der Sloot are battling pregnant girlfriend reports today. Joran Van der Sloot’s girlfriend is pregnant. But who is Leydi Figueroa Uceda, is her name “Leydi” or “Leidi”, and how long has she been pregnant? As if nothing is ever clear with Joran Van Der Sloot, the revelations today are exceptionally suspect.
Van der Sloot’s lawyer Maximo Altez lawyer told De Telegraaf newspaper today that Joran’s girlfriend is three months pregnant. Altez says that her name is “Leidi” and that she is a resident of Peru.
But before you believe all those assertions, there is more at play. In January, LALATE reported news that Joran’s girlfriend was already pregnant. In June, news reports claimed that the girl is “Leydi”, not “Leidi”. So is this Joran’s first or second child?
In January, Peruvian news confirmed that Joran’s girlfriend was visiting Van Der Sloot in prison. She claimed that she was doing “chores” in his cell, cleaning the space, and bringing him candy. Multiple reports confirm that, in addition to her “chores” for Van Der Sloot, the girlfriend has been giving him highly sought after candy. From that same cell, Van Der Sloot has been running snack bar. El Commercio reported that, because of the candy, the snack bar has been “very lucrative” for Van Der Sloot.
Reports of the January pregnancy spread from Peru to the U.S. “Some local media suggest she may be pregnant. El Commercio was unable to get any response from officials on these claims” reported FOX News. Periodismo En Linea, citing Univision, reported at the time “According to Dutch media, the girlfriend of the alleged murderer of Stephany is a woman who works in the same casino frequented by the victim and now visit frequently.” It adds “Unofficially there is even talk of her pregnancy.”
So was Joran’s girlfriend pregnant in January, or is she three months pregnant now in November? Joran is not giving any one straight answer this week.
In June, Peruvian news claimed that Joran’s girlfriend is a 22 year old Peruvian woman named Leydi Figueroa Uceda or Lady Figueroa Uceda. Altez then told news that Joran hasn’t had a child with Figueroa.
AmericanTV.pe reported at the time that Joran was set to take a DNA test to deny having fathered a child with Figueroa. “Maximum Altez, former lawyer of Joran Van der Sloot, confessed murderer of Stephany Flores Ramirez, denied that the Dutch have a child with a young Peruvian named Lady Uceda Figueroa, 22.”
Then in June, PrimeurJagers.nl reported that the Peruvian jail denied Figueroa ever visiting the facility. “The Peruvian prison (INPE) said in a press release officially denied that it ever Leydi Figueroa in prison for Van der Sloot has been visited”. But lawyers for Stephany Flores disputed the same. “The lawyer for the murdered Stephany Flores claimed a certain Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda regularly visited Joran.” Additionally, another report claimed the female was visiting a different inmate, not Joran. “According to INPE inmate Edgar Robinson says that he has a relationship with Leydi.”
Today, Joran’s attorney told news “A test has proved” that a girlfriend is pregnant with Joran’s baby, and in her third trimester. But the attorney claims that woman’s name is Leidi, not “Leydi”. Leydi Figueroa Uceda has yet to comment about today’s developments.
