The suspect, Joran van der Sloot, was escorted by three police officers as he was taken from a dark vehicle into a police office in downtown Santiago, Chile. He made no comment as he entered, walking calmly and without handcuffs as journalists shouted his name.
Van der Sloot was detained while traveling in a taxi, about halfway to the coast on Route 68, said Prefect Alfredo Espinosa, chief national spokesman for Chile’s investigative police. The suspect did not resist and has been calm in detention, Espinosa said.
Chilean police are awaiting instructions from their counterparts in Peru, Espinosa added.
