Van Der Sloot's Peruvian Prison (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

It seems being behind bars hasn't stopped alleged murderer Joran Van der Sloot from trying to strike it rich.

One day after an Alabama grand jury indicted Van der Sloot on charges of wire fraud and extortion, sources say the 22-year-old Dutch native is attempting to sell his first on-camera interview for a staggering $1 million. Officials at Peru's Miguel Castro Castro prison, where Van der Sloot is currently being held for the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez, say there have been no takers thus far.

The news on the heels of Van der Sloot's official indictment in another money-making scheme, in which he is alleged to have attempted to sell details of Natalee Holloway's death to her grieving mother, Beth Twitty. Authorities said Van der Sloot, who remains the prime suspect in Holloway's 2005 disappearance in Aruba, would identify the whereabouts of the Alabama teen's remains for $250,000.

Whether or not a TV deal materializes, the alleged murderer awaits his trial at Peru's Castro Castro prison. See it here:
