"It appears that the male subject who has passed was attempting to kidnap a young woman as she exited her vehicle in her driveway".

"Pushes her over to the passenger side, has a knife to her throat, he says he wants the keys", said Josh Taylor of North Port.

As a struggle ensued, cops say the woman was able to wrestle a knife from Ludwick, who was stabbed in the abdomen. He ran, but officers found him in a wooded area.

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".

Ludwick said he was the best friend of Joran van der Sloot, Holloway's suspected killer.

Holloway was an 18-year-old high school senior from Alabama when she vanished in May 2005, during a class trip to Aruba, a small Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela. To get rid of her hair fibers, they burned her skull, dousing it in gasoline "in a fire pit in a cave", he claimed. She has not been charged in the fatal stabbing; police said the investigation "is ongoing".

"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 at the time.

Natalee Holloway Murder

Police said Ludwick was a former roommate of the victim and was upset she didn't want it to be more.

He has ties to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. It alleges that the producers asked Beth for a DNA sample when they already knew that bone fragments they found did not belong to Holloway.

Investigators in the Holloway case have been told about Ludwick's death.

Van der Sloot is expected to be extradited to the US after completing his sentence in 2038 to face charges he tried to extort money from Holloway's family.

"The fact that she had to protect herself - I have no problem".

Ludwick told Grace that he met Van der Sloot on Aruba in 2010 and hung out with him nearly every day for a few months. It seems very eerily similar, ' he said. He added that he was from Alexandria, Virginia.
