Stefany Flores Ramirez, the murdered Peruvian 21-year-old whose main suspect is none other than Joran van der Sloot (of Natalee Holloway infamy), is being identified in news reports as a lesbian.
ABC News’ multi-bylined report describes Ramirez, a student, as “an out lesbian struggling with her sexuality.” On Good Morning America, her ex-girlfriend Stephanie Jamenez said she was a good gilr dealing with insecurities and intense disapproval about her sexuality from her parents.
Her body was found beaten and stabbed in a Lima hotel room registered to van der Sloot. In the above video, you can see what appears to be van der Sloot and Ramirez in the hotel elevator’s surveillance camera. Van der Sloot was then seen leaving the hotel alone with his bags; her body was found days later.
Van der Sloot, who was suspected to be on the run in Chile and headed to Argentina, was extradited back to Peru to face charges — but not before being paraded in front of reporters.
