Slain Woman in Peru Was a Lesbian

Slain Woman in Peru Was a Lesbian


The woman murdered in Peru, allegedly by the same man who is suspected of killing Natalee Holloway, was reportedly a lesbian.

Stefany Flores Ramirez, a 21-year-old Peru native, was found three days after video footage last shows her alive with Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man suspected of killing both women. Ramirez and van der Sloot are seen in a hotel surveillance tape entering a hotel room together.

There was no apparent struggle between the two, though after viewing the tapes, Ramirez's father, Ricardo Flores, told ABC News that the way she walks in the video does not match her normal walk. Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent who had also viewed the tapes, said that she seems to be conflicted as she follows van der Sloot into the lobby and hotel room.

"It's clear she's sort of stooped over and looking down," he said. "This may be a new experience for her to go to a hotel room with somebody she met just a few hours later. It also may play into her own issues with sexual identity problems."

News anchor George Stephanopoulos added that she identified as a lesbian, "so there may have been some shame or discomfort involved," he said.

Garrett suggests that she may have been killed after she rejected sexual advances from van der Sloot.
