Thanks, Patty.

"Investigators said van der Sloot invited Flores to his room at the Miraflores Hotel Tac to celebrate her winnings. A hotel employee later told police that she heard the couple arguing. Hours later, Flores was dead."

Oh goodness I hope so too. Out of respect for her family especially.

20/20 has yet to talk about the murder... they are currently covering parents putting their kids at risk.

I don't have a link, I'm watching 20/20 on ABC, started at 10 p.m. EST. They are covering other heinous stories first about parents who allow their kids to do heinous things. The JVDS story will be on after this portion.

Greta has Mark Furman down in Peru and he said that:

* finger nail clippings are standard procedure down there
* her head may have been bashed against a corner of the wooden bed frame

Mark Fuhrman on Greta. He is in Lima.

Said...the ME said she died of blunt force trauma. No apparent rape. No baseball bat. The ME theorized that the trauma to the back of her head and neck was due to someone hitting her head on the european style wooden bed frame. The mattress was aschew at that end of the bed where her body was found on the floor.

Nothing about not having an eyeball.

WOW, Nancy reported Breaking News the murder weapon was a baseball bat. Now it's not a baseball bat.
