As reported at the time, it was all part of an F.B.I. sting and the U.S. Attorney's office has since indicted him for extortion.

Van der Sloot is currently being held in Peru where he stands accused of killing another woman, 21-year-old Stephany Flores.

He admitted to the murder, then retracted his confession but Peruvian officials have refused his requests to have it stricken from the record.
