Last night, 20/20 aired the much-hyped video footage of murder suspect Joran van der Sloot admitting involvement in Natalee Holloway's disappearance/the disposal of her body. The footage was captured by an Dutch ex-con named Patrick, who, in concert with investigative reporter Peter de Vries, rigged up a car with audio/video recording equipment in an effort to get van der Sloot to confess to being part of Holloway's murder on (hidden) camera. And the rest, as they say is (sordid) history: In the video, van der Sloot refers to Holloway a whore, describes a seizure she had, and says he wasn't even sure if she was dead before dumping her body in the ocean. Then he brags about the "big fat compensation check" he will receive when he sues Aruban officials for "emotional damages." Prosecutors in Aruba, however, say that the tape is admissible as evidence, and that they will most certainly use it. Clip above.
