Dutch Student says Natalee Holloway's Body Was Dumped at Sea

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Footage broadcast in the Netherlands shows Dutch student Joran Van der Sloot saying he was with Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway when she collapsed on a beach in Aruba.

Van der Sloot says he believed Holloway was dead and asked a friend to dump her body in the sea, saying "She'll never be found."

A series of conversations between Van der Sloot and a man he believed to be his friend were recorded in a Range Rover rigged with three hidden cameras by a Dutch TV crime reporter.

Last week, Van der Sloot said he was lying in those conversations and denied that he had anything to do with the Mountain Brook teen's disappearance.

Holloway vanished at the end of a high school trip to the Caribbean island in 2005.
