THE LATEST ON JORAN VAN DER SLOOT'S CONFESSION TONIGHT!
Joran van der Sloot admitted he killed Stephany Flores (21), because she allegedly used his laptop to look for information regarding who he was, according to a high-rank Peruvian government official.
According to a report aired by local TV station news hour America Noticias, van der Sloot said that his anger exploded after she used his laptop without his permission to perform an internet search, and thus learned about Natalee Holloway's case.
“I didn't mean to. She intruded into my private life,” said van der Sloot. “She had no right... I approached to her, she was scared, we quarreled and she tried to run away. I grabbed her by the neck and hit her...” he continued.
They had arrived to the TAC hotel after 5 a.m. At 8:10 a.m. he went to buy coffee at a convenience store nearby and when he came back to the bedroom, found Stephany reading about his background on his laptop.
This confession provides grounds to accuse van der Sloot of homicide instead of aggravated robbery or aggravated murder, which have longer prison penalties.
