"She asked to go back to her hotel but I was just trying to get dropped off a little bit further away from her hotel so we could walk back to her hotel and I might still get a chance to be with her," he told investigators on October 3.

"I'm with Natalee, walking along the beach. I find a space before we get to the Marriott Hotel, where I lay her down. We lay down together in the sand, and we start kissing each other," van der Sloot recounted. "I start feeling her up again, and she tells me, 'No.' She tells me she doesn't want me to feel her up."

But the convicted killer didn't stop, and Natalee took action.

"She ends up kneeing me in the crotch. When she knees me in the crotch, I get up on the beach, and I kick her extremely hard in the face. She's lying down unconscious, possibly dead, but definitely unconscious," van der Sloot coldly said.

"I see a huge cinder block lying on the beach. I take this and I smash her head in with it completely," he explained, before revealing more gory details.

"Her face basically collapses in. Even though it's dark, I can see her face is collapsed in," her murderer recounted. Saying he was "scared" and "didn't know what to do," van der Sloot revealed, adding he decided to "put her into the ocean."

Saying he walked her into the ocean until he was knee-deep, van der Sloot claimed he pushed her body out to sea; however, the Holloway's family former private investigator doesn't believe the Dutchman is telling the entire truth.

“He didn’t say where she was, but I think the most important thing as far as the family was concerned was knowing exactly what happened to her. And now we know he hit her in the face with a brick. Am I surprised? I’m not whatsoever."
