Joran van der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutch playboy twice arrested in the mysterious disappearance of American Natalee Holloway, has been named the prime suspect in the death of a young Peruvian woman found dead in a Lima hotel today, five days after she disappeared.
Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramirez, 21, disappeared Friday and was found dead this morning at the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima, Peru. Flores was last seen with van der Sloot, the Dutch national who was twice arrested and released in connection with the disappearance of Holloway , an 18-year-old American student who went missing in Aruba five years ago this week.
Flores was found beaten and stabbed to death in a room booked in van der Sloot's name, police said. Officials believe she was killed on on Monday, May 30, exactly five years to the day that Holloway went missing.
The woman's father told reporters that the room was covered in blood, indicating a struggle had taken place.
Authorities believe van der Sloot fled Peru, passing through customs into Chile, and is on his way to Argentina. Peruvian officials have issued an international arrest warrant for the Dutchman.
van der Sloot was seen entering his hotel room with Flores.
