Chilean authorities say they'll fly Joran van der Sloot back to the border with Peru today to face potential murder charges there.
The Dutch man linked to the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba was detained in a taxi yesterday after crossing the border from Peru. Authorities there say the 22-year-old man is the prime suspect in Sunday's murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores. He also faces extortion charges in the U.S.
A fixture on TV true-crime shows after Holloway's disappearance, the Dutchman did not speak or even turn his head when photographers shouted his name as a he arrived at a police station for questioning.
Aruban authorities didn't prosecute van der Sloot even after he was caught on video saying he had asked a friend to dump Holloway's body. The Alabama teen's family was outraged by how Aruban authorities handled the case.
