(Newser) – Aruban police may rearrest a Dutch teen after he admitted on camera to dumping the body of Natalee Holloway, CNN reports. Joran Van der Sloot claimed today that his confession was a lie, but Aruba's main public prosecutor has reopened his probe and awaits a judge's ruling on the arrest this weekend. Officials had closed the case for lack evidence until a Dutch reporter showed them the video.

The interview, to be aired on ABC Monday night, reportedly shows Van der Sloot saying he dumped Holloway's body with a friend after having sex with her. "It is true I told someone. Everybody will see it Sunday" on Dutch television, Van der Sloot said of the video. "That is what he wanted to hear, so I told him what he wanted to hear."
