AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (WBRC) - There are wide spread reports of a new confession from Joran Van der Sloot in the case of missing Mountain Brook teenager Natalee Holloway.
According to CNN, the confession is not fresh but appears in material that was offered to a Dutch TV station last summer. Van der Sloot reportedly claims to have dumped Holloway's body in a swamp on the north end of the island. The Dutch station has used the material to produce a TV special which will air this Sunday.
Aruban prosecutor Peter Blanken says he was interviewed for the special and was shown the interview with Van der Sloot. The prosecutor says his office investigated Van der Sloot's statements and found them to be unbelievable.
Natalee's mother, Beth Twitty, has not commented on the reports.
