BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A newly unsealed FBI affidavit says the
Dutch man suspected in the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee
Holloway admitted he lied to her family about where her body was
buried on the island of Aruba.
The affidavit unsealed Thursday said Joran van der Sloot wanted
$250,000 - and a signed contract - in return for showing her family
where the remains were buried and the circumstances of her death.
According to the sworn statement from an FBI agent, van der
Sloot took a family representative to a house on Aruba - but later
admitted he lied when it was shown the house had not been built
when Holloway disappeared in 2005.
Van der Sloot, charged with extortion in Alabama, is also being
held in Peru in the strangling death of a 21-year-old woman.
