June 8, 2010. Peruvian authorities state Van der Sloot has made a full confession to the murder of Stephany Flores.
Van der Sloot is widely known as a suspect in the high-profile 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba. The Dutch 22-year-old has repeatedly denied involvement in that case. He has twice been arrested and released but has not been charged.
Flores' battered body was found last week in a hotel room registered to van der Sloot. Hotel videotape clearly shows the two entering a room together May 30 at 5:16 a.m. local time. Three hours and 20 minutes later, he left the hotel by himself carrying a backpack, telling the hotel staff not to bother "his girl," police said.
The backpack was later recovered on Van der Sloot's person 3 days later after he traveled 2,500 miles into Chile still containing blood soaked clothes.
Van der Sloot faces between 15 and 35 years in a Peruvian prison and then, if he lives, will be extradited to the United States to face 20 years for extortion charges.
