Ramirez disappeared last Friday and later was found fatally stabbed and wrapped in a blanket on Wednesday in a room that was registered under Van der Sloot’s name at the Miraflores Hotel Tac in Lima, Peru.

Police said a hotel worker told them she witnessed both Van der Sloot and Flores Ramirez entering the room.

"We have an interview with a worker at the hotel who says she saw this foreigner with the victim enter his room," Peruvian police chief Gen. Cesar Guardia said, according to ABC News.

Stephany Flores Ramirez's father, Ricardo Flores, pleaded for help in the investigation Wednesday.

“This is the assassin of my daughter,” Flores said during a news conference showing a picture of Van der Sloot, the last person seen with his daughter on Sunday at 5:16 a.m. “I don’t want any other parent to feel the same pain that I’m feeling at this moment."
