LIMA, Peru – Joran van der Sloot told police in Chile that it was an unidentified robber who beat a young woman to death in his hotel room, a killing for which the Dutchman has been charged with murder in Peru.
Peruvian police say Van der Sloot, long suspected in the 2005 disappearance of American teen Natalee Holloway, had confessed to killing 21-year-old business student Stephany Flores on May 30 after they met playing poker.
But according to a Chilean police report obtained by The Associated Press through Peruvian authorities late on Saturday, van der Sloot gave a different account of events while in custody in neighboring Chile, where he was captured after the killing and quickly extradited.
In the version offered to Chilean investigators, van der Sloot said he and Flores were surprised in the early morning by two robbers in an apparent assault. (AP)
