Natalee Holloway's parents finally appear to have answers on what happened to their daughter after she went missing more than 15 years ago.

Joran van der Sloot allegedly told her mother that he'd bludgeoned her to death after she rejected his advances — a story that prosecutors relayed to the court during a Wednesday, October 18, court hearing in Alabama.

Natalee Holloway went missing in 2005.

Joran, 36, pleaded guilty to both wire fraud and extortion after allegedly attempting to get Natalee's mother to pay him $250,000 in 2010 in exchange for information on where her daughter's remains were located, despite insisting for years that he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

"You didn't get what you wanted from Natalee, your sexual satisfaction, so you brutally killed her," Beth said in a court statement on Wednesday, claiming that Joran "terminated her dreams, her potential, [and] her possibilities" with her death.

According to Joran's attorney, John Q. Kelly, revealing details of the late 18-year-old's horrific murder and "how her body was disposed of" was a condition of his plea deal, but there will not be "any further investigation or search or anything like that for Natalee's remains."

After entering his guilty plea, U.S. District Judge Anna Manasco sentenced Joran to serve 20 years behind bars.

"I have considered the factual statements about extortion, and wire fraud but also considered your confession to the brutal murder of Natalee Holloway," the judge said at the time.

As OK! previously reported, prior to his sentencing, Joran was serving out a 28-year sentence in Peru for the 2010 murder of college student Stephany Flores.

The Dutch murder suspect confessed that he'd killed Stephany after she'd seen an instant message that implied he'd been involved in Natalee's disappearance.

"I hit her in the face exactly on top of her nose," he reportedly said during his confession. "I think she started to faint. It affected me so that I grabbed her from the neck and strangled her for a minute. There was blood everywhere. What am I going to do now? I had blood on my shirt. There was also blood on the bed, so I took off my shirt and put it on her face, pressing hard, until I killed Stephany."

Peru Minister of Justice and Human Rights Daniel Maurate Romero confirmed earlier this year that the Peruvian government had decided to allow the U.S. to extradite Joran "for his prosecution in the United States for the alleged commission of the crimes of extortion and fraud, to the grievance of Elizabeth Ann Holloway."
