PERU -- Peruvian police say a young Dutchman twice arrested in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway is now a suspect in the slaying of a Peruvian woman.

Chief of detectives Col. Miguel Canlla told The Associated Press that Joran Van Der Sloot was being sought in the Sunday killing in a Lima hotel of 21-year-old Stephany Flores.

The girl's father, Ricardo Flores, told reporters that Van Der Sloot appears with her in video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday. He said she was killed about 8 a.m. Sunday in a hotel room that was splattered with blood, indicating a struggle.

Van der Sloot left Peru on Monday, immigration authorities told the AP, though they did not disclose his destination though Flores said it was Chile.

Canlla said that Peru was asking authorities in neighboring Chile for help in the case. He did not elaborate.

He also said police were seeking to confirm Van Der Sloot's identity with the Dutch Embassy. The embassy's head of consular affairs, Angela Lowe, said she could not comment on the case for privacy reasons.

Van der Sloot was twice arrested but later released for lack of evidence in the May 2005 disappearance in Aruba of the 18-year-old Holloway, who was on a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island.

No trace of her had been found.

The mystery of her disappearance has frustrated authorities and garnered wide attention on television and in newspapers in Europe and the United States.

Well well, it appear that fella can't keep out of negative spotlight. Even if he didn't kill Holloway this certainly magnifies the suspiscion ten fold. What are the odds of being the center of two incidents where alleged foul play occured and being innocent? I'd say slim at best.

SANTIAGO, Chile, June 4 (UPI) -- The Chilean government intends to extradite Joran van der Sloot, accused of killing a 21-year-old Peruvian woman, back to Peru, Interpol said.

Interpol spokeswoman Macarena Lopez says the Dutch citizen, previously arrested twice but not charged in connection with the disappearance of American Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005, is expected to be flown via military plane from Santiago, Chile, to the border city of Arica, Peru, CNN reported Friday.

Van der Sloot, 23, is said to be the main suspect in the slaying of Stephany Flores Ramirez, 21, found dead Wednesday in a Peruvian hotel room registered in van der Sloot's name.

Van der Sloot left Peru Wednesday, entering Chile at the coastal city of Vina del Mar traveling alone in a taxi when he was detained, CNN said.

Two Peruvian cab drivers said they drove a man matching the description of van der Sloot to the Chilean border.

"He paid me and I took him to Arica, to the border. The man sat in the front seat and smoked many cigarettes," one of them, Oswaldo Aparcana, said.

The other driver, Carlos Alberto Uribe, said the passenger told them he used to live in Aruba, CNN reported.
