Joran van der Sloot Peru: Detained in Connection with Woman’s Death
Remember Joran van der Sloot? The Dutch suspect in Natalee Holloway’s case who police couldn’t quite get enough dirt on, even when he tried to confess earlier this year? He’s at it again – being detained when a young woman turns up dead, that is. According to MyFoxNY, Joran is a suspect in the death of 21 year-old Stephany Flores of Peru. Chilean police took him out of a taxi cab in a beach resort town in Chile, and he has reportedly been taken to Santiago for questioning.
Stephany Flores’ body was found in the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima, Peru Wednesday, five days after she disappeared. The 21 year-old was last seen with van der Sloot. The girl’s father, businessman and race-car driver Ricardo Flores, says van der Sloot appears with her in video taken at the Atlantic City casino in Lima early Sunday.
According to CNN, the hotel room where Stephany’s body was found was registered in Joran’s name, and ahotel guest and an employee witnessed the pair entering the hotel room together at 5 a.m. on Sunday. Immigration officials say Joran fled to Chile over land on Monday,
“We have all the evidence to show that the killer is this man,” Flores told CNN.
