Joran van der Sloot confesses: murdered girl who read his laptop
Joran van der Sloot, the main suspect in the disappearance of Natalie Holloway, an Alabama teenager who went missing in 2005 in Aruba, has confessed to murdering another girl, Stephany Flores Ramirez, 21, last week in Lima, Peru.
He killed her after catching her reading files on his laptop computer.
Today he will take Peruvian authorities on a re-enactment in at the hotel room where her body was found last week.
Van der Sloot gave a tearful confession Monday (June 7) to killing Ramirez because she "intruded on my private life" by looking in his computer. Authorities suspect she stumbled on information about the disappearance of Holloway.
"I did not want to do it," van der Sloot told authorities. "The girl intruded into my private life... she didn't have any right. I went to her and I hit her. She was scared, we argued and she tried to escape. I grabbed her by the neck and hit her," according to La Republica newspaper.
Van der Sloot and Flores met at a casino and went back to his hotel room around 5 AM. But when he went out to get them both some coffee, he returned to find her on his computer. He became enraged, beat her and broke her neck.
Van der Sloot, 22, was arrested twice in connection with Holloway's disappearance in Aruba but was released for lack of evidence.
He has always denied any involvement and has not been charged with the murder because her body was never found.
Will he finally confess? What evidence did his laptop have?
It should be noted that there is no death penalty in Peru. The worst he will get is life in prison.
