A Dutch newspaper is reporting that the main suspect in Natalee Holloway's disappearance has confessed to dumping her body in Aruba.

Holloway disappeared during a May 2005 vacation to the Caribbean island. The case has since gained a worldwide media following.

Dutch media outlet BNO News reported Monday night that Joran van der Sloot has confessed to leaving Holloway's body in a swamp.

He apparently confessed in front of news cameras Monday.

Two years ago, van der Sloot allegedly confessed to an undercover Dutch reporter but the courts wouldn't consider it legal evidence.
