Joran Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the murder of a Peruvian woman named Stephany Flores Ramirez, has been on the run and RadarOnline.com has learned he has just been arrested.
CNN reports that the 22-year-old Dutchman has been arrested in Santiago, Chile in connection to the murder in Peru.
Van der Sloot was also linked, but never charged, in connection with the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
Ramirez disappeared last Friday and was found fatally stabbed and wrapped in a blanket on Wednesday in a hotel room registered under Van der Sloot’s name at the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima, Peru.
Police reports indicate a hotel worker told them they witnessed both Van der Sloot and Ramirez entering the room, but only Van der Sloot later emerging.
Peruvian Interior Minister Octavio Salazar Miranda said Thursday that Peru has made arrangements with Interpol to extradite van der Sloot.
