(Newser) – Chilean police say they have detained Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, who is sought in the murder of a woman in Peru. Police say he has been taken into custody in Chile's capital of Santiago. Van der Sloot has long been suspected in the 2005 disappearance of US teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Five years to the date after she disappeared, he was the last person seen with a Peruvian woman found dead in his Lima hotel room.
