NEW YORK (CBS) Joran van der Sloot reportedly can add Thailand to the list of countries that might like to see him behind bars indefinitely.
Thai officials are investigating the Netherlands native regarding his alleged involvement in a Thai sex slave gang and for the disappearance of a young woman he may have recruited for the gang, according to the National Inquirer.
After escaping charges for the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2008, van der Sloot allegedly fled to Bangkok and posed as "Murphy Jenkins," a production consultant for a modeling agency, reports the Enquirer.
Van der Sloot then did what he does best. He lied. He convinced the impressionable girls he was going to send them to Europe to become models.
Except several of the girls never achieved their modeling dreams, nor were they ever heard from again, says the tabloid.
"Girls who are approached by sex traffickers here often get killed, especially if they discover they are being tricked into prostitution and start to resist or threaten to go to the police," a Thai law enforcement official told the Enquirer. "Many of these girls have no legal documents. If they go missing, nobody notices. It's easy to kill them, hide the bodies and get away with it."
A source for CBS News spoke to Peru's Minister of Justice who confirmed that Thailand was pursuing criminal charges against van der Sloot.
Joran van der Sloot reportedly confessed to the murder of Stephany Flores - and then later recanted the confession to a Dutch newspaper. He remains in custody in Peru.
The 22-year-old remains the prime suspect in the disappearance of Holloway, who vanished in Aruba during a high school graduation trip. Despite van der Sloot having been arrested twice in the Holloway case, Aruban prosecutors say they do not have enough evidence to put him behind bars.

What is it? Some additive in the Food we eat? In the Water we drink? Have you ever known so many British
Citizens involved in illegal sexual activities.!!!!!! Even yesterday at an outside Music show a 19 yr old girl who
was there with Friends got lost on her way to the Loo. There were a few young men who offered to show her the way, some peeled away but she was raped by one of them. Iv"e been to Thailand, it"s a beautiful Country
and the people generous and friendly. There is a huge trade in pedophilia by Europeans who go there solely
to sexually abuse young boys and girls, it makes me sick.
