SANTIAGO, Chile (CBS) Chilean police say Joran van der Sloot has been detained in the death of 21-year-old Peruvian woman, according to The Associated Press.
The Dutch national, who is the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of American Natalee Holloway, was named as the prime suspect in Flores' murder on Wednesday.
According to police reports, Flores was found brutally stabbed and wrapped in a blanket in a pool of blood, Peruvian newspaper El Comercio reports.
Chief of detectives Col. Miguel Canlla says that Flores was murdered on Sunday, exactly five years after Holloway vanished in Aruba.
The woman's father, Ricardo Flores, says van der Sloot appears with his daughter in video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday. Hotel employees also told police that they saw van der Sloot with Flores over the weekend.
The hotel room where Flores' body was found was registered under van der Sloot's name, according to El Comercio.
Five years ago, in May 2005, Alabama high school student Natalee Holloway disappeared during a senior class trip to Aruba. She was 18 when she was last seen leaving a bar with Joran van der Sloot, who was 17 at the time. He was detained in the case several times and even confessed to her murder, but Aruban authorities have said they didn't have enough evidence to charge him.MEDIA
