Man who claimed he buried Natalee Holloway killed trying to kidnap woman

Natalee Holloway 7

The man was wearing dark clothes, a hoodie and a mask, but the victim recognized him from his voice and eyes as her former friend, John Christopher Ludwick, 32, of Port Charlotte.

Police say Ludwick was trying to kidnap the woman in North Port on Wednesday as she was getting out of her vehicle.

Police said she fought back, and Ludwick was stabbed in the struggle. She snatched a knife from him and then stabbed him multiple times. "He was found nearby suffering from the stab wounds".

"(Ludwick) also confessed to burning Natalee's skull himself, stating that he doused it in gasoline and then set it on fire inside a cave in order to destroy any identifying hair fibers", according to recordings aired on the Oxygen series, "The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway." The woman won't be charged, Taylor said.

Authorities also confirmed that Ludwick was the same man who made repeated claims that he helped dispose of Natalee Holloway's body by burning it in a cave when she disappeared during a class graduation trip in Aruba in May 2005.

Ludwick is a friend of the suspect in Holloway's disappearance, Joran Van der Sloot, and previously claimed he helped dispose of Holloway's remains, police confirmed to ABC Action News.

In The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway program, which followed Holloway's father and a private investigator as they chased a lead in the case, Ludwick claimed van der Sloot paid him $1,500 to dig up Holloway's remains and cremate them.

'The idea was to crush everything to the point where it wasn't recognizable as her bones or skull or anything like that, ' he said on the show. Her disappearance sparked years of news coverage.

Despite global media attention, Holloway's body was never found and a court in Alabama ruled her legally dead in January 2012.

Van der Sloot is now imprisoned for the 2010 slaying of another young woman in Peru, a crime which occurred five years to the day after Holloway's death. "Our investigation in this local case is ongoing".
