Even before Joran van der Sloot‘s confession, Peruvian police were convinced he was guilty of the brutal murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez, the official police case file reveals.
In a world exclusive, RadarOnline.com has obtained the official documents from the homicide detectives’ investigation into the murder of Flores Ramirez, revealing strong evidence against van der Sloot.
In one document, detectives said Flores Ramirez – who was beaten and stabbed to death – was found with “traumatic lesions on the face, a bruise on the scalp, cranial fracture, traumatic lesions on the neck… (and) over different areas of the body.”
It also reveals that van der Sloot – after slamming Flores Ramirez in the face with his right elbow, strangling her for a full minute, taking off his shirt and suffocating her with it – drank cups of coffee next to her lifeless body.
Under the heading ‘Ways and circumstances how the murder was committed,’ police cite the following determinations of the 22-year-old Dutchman’s guilt, as translated into English:
- Physical aggression
- Preparation for escape
- Escape itinerary
They also revealed the host of evidence stacked against Joran van der Sloot:
- His confession
- The dead victim
- The death certificate
- The parking ticket of the victim’s vehicle at the Casino “Atlantic City”
- Results of the criminality information — biologic, fingerprinting and others
- Testimony of the witnesses, including drivers
- Recovery of Van Der Sloot’s clothes in the victim’s vehicle
- Removal of money, bank account cards and the vehicle of the victim
The sensitive documents also include an illustration of the crime scene — Room 309 at the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima — showing where Flores Ramirez was bludgeoned to death.
Police indicate Flores Ramirez’ body was found “in lateral position with the arms extended and legs against the wall.”
The cause of death was cranial-encephalic and cervical traumatism, according to a forensic investigator, quoted in the police document.
Joran van der Sloot is still a suspect in the Natalee Holloway case, and there is speculation he may want to make a deal that includes leading Aruban officials to the body of the missing Alabama teen, who vanished while on vacation in Aruba in 2005.
Van der Sloot has been arrested twice, but never been charged in the Holloway disappearance.
