Though he initially tried telling investigators an armed man had broken into his hotel room, he later confessed to killing Flores.
At the end of the confession he tried to barter a deal with authorities, promising to tell Aruban police the whereabouts of Natalee Holloway's remains to avoid facing trial in Peru.
"I wish to talk about the Natelee Holloway case from five years ago and the possibility that if this trial goes quickly and fluidly it could be possible for me to be extradited to Aruba. I wish to discuss the case, but not at the moment. It's a case that is years old and I would prefer to speak with the Aruban police and if there is the possibility of closing the case I would be ready to clarify the case," he said.
Van der Sloot has been the primary suspect in the Holloway case for five years. He has been charged by U.S. authorities with extortion for taking money from Holloway's mother in exchange for information about where to find the girl's remains.
Investigators concluded the information he provided was false, because the foundation of the house where he she was buried was not under construction at the time.
Holloway's father Dave Holloway is currently in Aruba meeting with authorities there in that hopes that van der Sloot might be able to provide new actionable information, according to the Associated Press.
