limaLima, Peru, June 3, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Joran Van Der Sloot, who had been the prime suspect in the murder of Natalee Holloway, the American student who disappeared while on a holiday in Aruba, has been accused of yet another murder.

This time, it is Stephany Flores Ramirez, a 21 year old woman, who was found dead in a hotel in Lima, in Peru.

The scene of death was gruesome, according to the reports of the policemen. Stephany Flore Ramirez’s body was seen wrapped up in a blanket, lying in a pool of blood. She had been stabbed repeatedly to death. Reports suggest that she had been killed on Sunday.

Fingers get pointed at Joran Van Der Sloot for a number of reasons. Firstly, the murdered woman was found in the room in the hotel that had been booked in Joran Van Der Sloot’s name. Moreover, the victim’s father, Ricardo Flores, had apparently reported to the police that he had seen a video shot in a casino in Lima early on the day of the murder, in which his daughter appeared along with Joran Van Der Sloot.

Some residents at the same hotel also testified that they had seen the two getting inside the hotel room at around five in the morning on Sunday.

However, no reports have been available of the suspect, who, it is believed, is currently absconding from the police. The Peruvian police have reported that an international arrest order has been issued for Joran Van Der Sloot.

If captured, he is going to be extradited to Peru, according to reports of the police officials. The authorities are at present searching for the suspect all over the country, and also in border checkpoints.
