How did Joran van der Sloot kill Stephany Flores? Peruvian authorities have released the transcripts of Van der Sloot’s confession. Van der Sloot says that Flores punched him in the face after reading his private emails. "At that moment impulsively, with my right elbow I hit her in the face exactly on top of the nose," Van der Sloot says in the confession. "I think she started to faint. It affected me so that I grabbed her from the neck and strangled her for a minute." "There was blood everywhere," he continues. "What am I going to do now. I had blood on my shirt. There was also blood on the bed. So, I took my shirt and put it on her face, pressing hard, until I killed Stephany."
