Holloway Killing Suspect at LAPT Peru?

I just caught this on the Yahoo! newswire, via an AP feed:

LIMA, Peru – A young Dutchman previously arrested in the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway is the prime suspect in a weekend murder of a Peruvian woman, police said Wednesday.

Joran van der Sloot is being sought in the Sunday killing of 21-year-old Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel, Criminal police chief Gen. Cesar Guardia told a news conference. He said the suspect fled the country the next day by land to Chile.

The Dutch government said Interpol has issued an international arrest warrant for Van der Sloot.

Guardia said the 22-year-old Dutchman, who was in the country for a poker tournament, appears with the young woman in a video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday....

I'm gonna guess the guy was a no-show for the tourney if this is true. Maybe Otis or Shamus can check it out?

Great job on the Just conjecturin series. I'ved linked the last few up to draw attention to them on my blog. I always get hits from people looking for info on the UB superuser scandal. Are the 2 volume 17's intentional?
