A copy of a disc seized from Joran Van Der Sloot’s computer has been handed over to the FBI as they look for new information that might finally crack the Natalee Holloway case, has learned.

The Peruvian police passed over the disc according to Oscar Gonzalez who heads their high technology investigations.

He admitted that “there is additional information that could be of interest” in the confiscated computer of Van der Sloot, who is currently locked in Peru’s Castro Castro prison.

Van der Sloot’s lawyer Maximo Altez Navarro recently entered a temporary insanity plea on behalf of his client.

It’s alleged Peruvian student Stephany Flores was murdered by the Dutchman after she started digging through his computer and found information pertaining to Holloway.

Navarro recently told “We are confident that we can prove 'temporary insanity' and I am going to fight to make this happen for Joran.

“If we are successful, he will serve between 3-5 years in prison but will get out earlier if there are no problems.

“Both Joran and his mother agree with my plan, and we believe this is the best option for him.”

Flores was killed in Van der Sloot's Lima hotel room five years to the day after Holloway disappeared in Aruba; she had been bludgeoned and asphyxiated.

Van der Sloot confessed to the crime last year, but then recanted. Likewise, he has implicated himself in the past to the disappearance of Holloway, but later changed his story.

A lawyer for Flores' family called the proposed insanity plea "absurd," saying that given all the factors of the case, van der Sloot deserved to spend a minimum of 25 years in prison.

“The manner in which the suspect killed Stephany evidenced disproportionate violence," attorney Edward Alvarez said.
