Van der Sloot confesses

<p>A young Dutch man linked to the mysterious disappearance of a young American woman in Aruba has confessed to murdering a female student in Peru, police said yesterday.</p>

The mother of other suspected Van der Sloot victim Natalee Holloway — who Peruvian police say was killed five years to the day before the Flores murder — was in Washington, D.C., yesterday to commemorate a missing persons resource center named after her daughter.

Beth Holloway was front and center at the opening of the Natalee Holloway Resource Center at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington. “I feel confident that it will serve as a point of light for all missing,” she said.

Holloway, who cannot legally comment on the current Van der Sloot updates in Peru owing to a federal directive, was allegedly extorted by the entrepreneurial Dutchman, who wanted money in exchange for the whereabouts of the remains of Holloway’s daughter, who went missing in Aruba in 2005.
