Van der Sloot.... Should be Van der Scum

 Finally got this scum Prick

Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba, has confessed to killing a young Peruvian woman in his Lima hotel room last month, according to police.

Peru's chief police spokesman, Col. Abel Gamarra, told The Associated Press that during questioning, the 22-year-old Dutch playboy admitted the slaying of Stephany Flores. The 21-year-old business student was found beaten to death, her neck snapped and her body wrapped in a bloody blanket in van der Sloot's hotel room last Wednesday.

Van der Sloot will return to the hotel this afternoon to take part in a police reconstruction of the events leading up to Flores' slaying, Gamarra said. If convicted, the Dutchman could face 35 years in prison in Peru, although it is not clear if his sentence will be reduced by his reported confession.
While Peruvian police refused to say why van der Sloot killed the woman, the New York Post quotes La Republica newspaper as saying that authorities believe he flew into a rage after Flores looked at his laptop and saw that he was connected to Holloway's disappearance in 2005. "I did not want to do it. The girl intruded into my private life," the paper quoted him telling officers. "She had no right. She was scared, we argued, she tried to escape and I grabbed her by the neck and hit her."

Police said the two met while playing poker at a casino in Peru's capital, and this weekend released video footage of the pair entering his room in the early hours of Saturday, May 30. Van der Sloot left with his bags four hours later. He then paid the hotel in advance for another two weeks' stay and requested that workers kept out of the room. Soon after, van der Sloot got in a taxi, and paid the driver $600 to take him to Chile.

He was arrested by Chilean authorities on Thursday, and deported to Peru, where he was paraded in front of the media wearing a bulletproof vest. He initially told police that he had nothing to do with Flores' slaying, although he did admit to meeting her.

There are now suspicions that van der Sloot -- the son of a former judge and attorney on Aruba -- may have staged his attempted getaway using money raised through extortion. On the day that he was arrested in Chile, he was charged in the U.S. with trying to procure $250,000 from Holloway's family in return for revealing the location of her body and describing how she died. American prosecutors say $15,000 was transferred into a Dutch bank account in his name on May 10, four days before he arrived in Peru.

Van der Sloot has long been the main suspect in the disappearance of Holloway, 18, who vanished while celebrating her high school graduation on the Dutch Caribbean island. He told investigators that he left her on a beach, drunk. However, in 2007, a Dutch television crime reporter secretly recorded him saying that after Holloway passed out, he asked a friend to dump her body in the sea.
