Now that police in Peru say Dutchman Joran van der Sloot has confessed to killing a young woman in his hotel room, the father of Natalee Holloway says he should tell everything he knows about the Alabama teen, who went missing in Aruba in 2005.

In a telephone interview Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" Dave Holloway said, "He confessed to this one. I would like for him to tell everyone what happened." He added, "Hopefully this is his last victim."

Police in Lima said late Monday that Van der Sloot admitted killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores.

He has been the main suspect in the disappearance of Holloway five years ago. She was in Aruba on a class trip. Van der Sloot is also charged with trying to extort $250,000 from her family in exchange for information about the case.

Meanwhile, Natalee's mother, Beth Holloway, launched a resource center Tuesday, named for her daughter to help the families of missing persons.
The Natalee Holloway Resource Center is located at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington.

Beth Holloway said she hopes the center will prevent many more missing person cases. But if tragedy strikes, Holloway says she wants to support families and reduce the challenges that she faced.

    A South American prison sounds all warm and cozy doesn't it? I'm sure it will much more fitting than an Aruban, Dutch, or US prison. He may indeed get out in 8-10 but can you imagine what he is doing to have to go through? He may be WISHING for a death sentence!

    I'm willing to bet that Stephan found something extremely damaging on that laptop. What if she found information on the supposed Sex Slave Trade? The FBI needs to get there hands on that laptop!

    His confession makes me wonder just what kind of personal life would he have to protect on his laptop that would be so important that he would kill to protect it. I hope they check that out. There might be something there they should know about. My prayers go out for both grieving families along with van der Sloot's mother.

    Jack- This sorry piece of trash is guilty and we all know it. Oh, and just think he doesn't have daddy to get him out trouble this time. POOR BABY! Maybe this time he will get what he deserves.

    If he is guilty of it he should let the family know so they can have some piece of mind

    Jack - seriously... you know as well as we all do - that he is GUILTY! Why even make a statement like that, I bet if it had been YOUR daughter you would rethink those words. What if you were standing in front of Natalee's parents? I'll bet you wouldn't have made that same statement. That sorry ____ should have been found guilty a loooong time ago - but its doubtful minds like yours that kept him out of jail, now look what happened. KARMA - it always catches up. Doesn't really matter what you or I think now does it?

    Jack- how come you're so quick to protect the right of someone who has on numerous occasions stated his involvement in Natalie's disappearance? Not to mention he was extorting money from her family to provide more information about where her body was & what actually happened. Not sure how you can really feel he is worthy of "assumed innocense". Sorry, but in my book if you are caught bragging about your involvement and considered the prime suspect to boot, it is likely you are guilty. The fact that he's admitted murdering the poor girl in Peru just adds to the likely fact that he probably did the same to Natalie. Heck, for all we know, there may be other women! But, hey- let's give Him the benefit of the doubt !! I've never been much on the innocent til proven guilty. Just because it hasn't been proven, doesn't make him any less guilty of the crime. I hope he is miserable in that Peruvian prison cell.
