Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, long the prime suspect in U.S. teen Natalee Holloway's 2005 disappearance in Aruba, has confessed to killing a young woman in his Lima hotel room last week, a police spokesman said.
Police Col. Abel Gamarra, head of the Information Directorate of Police, told The Associated Press late Monday that Van der Sloot admitted under questioning by police that he killed 21-year-old Stephany Flores.
Gamarra said the case will be turned over to prosecutors who will present formal charges against Van der Sloot. The National Prison Institute will determine which prison he will be held in while awaiting trial.
Police planned to take Van der Sloot to the hotel on Tuesday to participate in a reconstruction of the events leading to Flores' slaying, Gamarra said.
Gamarra did not provide further details about the confession.
A Peruvian television station, Channel 4, said it had obtained details about Van der Sloot's confession in which he reportedly told police that he killed Flores because he got angry when he found out that she had looked up information about his past on his laptop.
Flores, a university student studying business administration, was found beaten to death in the hotel room where the Dutchman had stayed while participating in a poker tournament. Flores is thought to have met Van der Sloot at the casino.
Joran van der Sloot, suspect in Natalee Holloway case, confesses to murdering Stephany Flores
Authorities say that he admitted to murdering the Peruvian woman because she saw “something” about Natalee Holloway on his laptop computer.
Stephany, 21, was found on May 30 in his room in pool of blood. She had been stabbed and severely beaten with a baseball bat found in the hotel room.
Van der Sloot reportedly told police “I did not want to do it… The girl saw private things. She had no right. I approached her and she was scared.”
He continued, “We discussed it and she tried to escape, and I took her neck and hit her.”
The Dutchman has been charged with extortion in the U.S. after allegedly contacting one of Natalee's family members claiming he could provide information regarding her whereabouts for a large some of money.
