Peru's chief police spokesman says Dutchman Joran van der Sloot
, long suspected in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway, has confessed to killing a 21 year old Peruvian woman.

The spokesman, Col. Abel Gamarra, tells The Associated Press that Van der Sloot admitted under police questioning Monday that he killed Stephany Flores, 21, on May 30.

Peruvian TV channel America Noticias reported that van der Sloot
killed Flores in a rage after learning she had looked up information about his past on his laptop.

The station says it has access to details of the confession, but did not cite its source.

Gamarra refused to provide details of the confession. It came on his third full day in Peruvian police custody.

Flores, a business student, was found beaten to death, in van der Sloot's hotel room. Police said the two met playing poker at a casino.
