Joran van der Sloot confession video revealed
A video has been aired in the Peruvian media showing Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot confessing to having killed Stephany Flores.
The newly-revealed footage shows Van der Sloot answering police questions in Spanish. The fact of his confession is nothing new – he made it more than a year ago. On his arrest shortly after the death of Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel room, Van der Sloot made a full confession to the police. But the lawyer representing him at the time later declared the confession to be inadmissible as evidence for legal reasons.
In the video, Van der Sloot first appears to answer question calmly and without emotion. He describes in detail how he killed Stephany Flores in his hotel room. As the film progresses, he grows more emotional. It is also evident that he understands virtually all the questions in Spanish. His spoken Spanish is not flawless, but reasonably fluent.
The authenticity of the video has not yet been established.
