Youssef Taladaqui under arrest
Officers from the Homicide Division of Criminal Investigation Department

wrapped around Cinthia's body.

YOUSSEF TALADAQUI'S VERSION
Youssef Taladaqui tells investigators "I met Cinthia a month ago at the
club Sabor Peruana. I was alone at the table when a guard asked if I
wanted a girl, and a little later two girls came to my table and one of
them touched my hand. Then we talked and drank Tequila. It was
12 P.M. when we left to go to my room. Ciinthia asked me for 90
soles for her services. But along the way, when we were in the taxi,
she received a phone call and began arguing with someone. When
we got near the place where I live, we got out, but she went home
and I went to the hostel."
A psychological profile says Taladaqui is "highly impulsive, violent,
with lying tendencies and aggressive sexual inclinations."
Cinthia's sister Marduly recognizes Youssef Taladqui as the Arabic
man she last saw dancing with Cinthia.
Taladaqui insists he's innocent.
