(Story reported by Radar Online)

Joran van der Sloot has admitted to extorting Natalee Holloway's family, has learned. He told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that he "wanted to get back at Natalee's family -- her parents have been making my life tough for five years."

Van der Sloot did not admit to killing Natalee, the Alabama teen who disappeared while on vacation on the island of Aruba five years ago. But he did confess to the newspaper that he took money in exchange for giving her family "her location."

As reported at the time, it was all part of an F.B.I. sting and the U.S. Attorney's office has since indicted him for extortion.

Van der Sloot is currently being held in Peru where he stands accused of killing another woman, 21-year-old Stephany Flores.
