The crime photos shows the 21-year-old's body lying on the floor next to the bed with her arms extended and legs against the wall.

Police say Joran van der Sloot confessed to killing Flores in the hotel room after the two met playing poker at a casino.

Video from hotel security cameras shows Flores and van der Sloot entering his room together at 5 a.m. Sunday and then shows van der Sloot leaving alone four hours later with his bags. Police say van der Sloot also left the hotel briefly at 8:10 a.m. and returned with two cups of coffee and bread purchased across the street at a supermarket. Coffee cups are visible in some of the crime scene photos.

Flores' murder occurred on May 30, exactly five years after American teenager Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba. Van der Sloot has long been considered the prime suspect in Holloway's disappearance by authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island.

The crime scene photos were obtained by "48 Hours | Mystery" from sources close to the investigation.
