A man who claimed he helped Natalee Holloway murder suspect Joran van der Sloot dispose of the teen's body after she went missing was stabbed to death while trying to kidnap a woman in Florida, police said.

North Port police said they are aware of his past comments about the Holloway case and have informed the "authorities who are working that case".

"He essentially ambushed her getting out of her vehicle, going into her home", Taylor said, adding during the scuffle between the two on Wednesday, she was able to wrestle a knife from Ludwick, with which she stabbed him in the abdomen. During a struggle, the woman stabbed Ludwick and he fled the scene on foot.

Ludwick, a 32-year-old from Port Charlotte, ran away from the home but was found with stab wounds nearby, police said.

Ludwick was later discovered injured and was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. She said she started to scream and Ludwick tried to put something in her mouth to quiet her and put a knife to her neck.

"From every ounce of evidence we have so far, she was a victim in this case", he told the news stataion. "We have nothing to say otherwise right now".

Asked about the prospect of having kids, she recently said: "I want to have kids, but at, like, 28 or 29". She continued, "I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time".

Ludwick claimed that her remains had been buried in Aruba, and said van der Sloot paid him $1,500 to exhume the remains in 2010.

Gabriel Madrigal was friends with Ludwick and says that he had a history of suicidal tendencies.

"The idea was to crush everything to the point where it wasn't recognizable as her bones or skull or anything like that", Ludwick said on the show, which aired last fall. To get rid of her hair fibers, they burned her skull, dousing it in gasoline "in a fire pit in a cave", he claimed. No one has ever been charged in connection with her disappearance.

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

Cops in Florida reached out to those in charge of the almost 13-year-old Holloway case about Ludwick's death. Sloot is now serving a 28-year prison sentence in Peru for the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores in 2000. "Our investigation in this local case is ongoing".
