As first reported, Flores, was found dead in a Lima, Peru hotel room that was registered to van der Sloot — and then it’s believed he took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile.

Van der Sloot also remains the prime suspect in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway, who vanished at age 18 while on a graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba.

He was arrested twice but never charged in connection with her disappearance -- the killing of Flores was five years to the day of the unsolved 2005 disappearance of Holloway.
