The CBSNews.com site Crimesider has obtained more than 20 crime scene photos — some of them gruesome — from inside Joran van der Sloot‘s Lima hotel room. The photos, which CBS News received from a source, show murder victim Stefany Flores, a bloody sheet and more than a dozen other photos taken by crime scene investigators.

During a court appearance yesterday in Lima, van der Sloot’s attorney focused on how his client’s rights were violated when he confessed to the May 30 murder of Flores, whom he met earlier that night.

Crimesider, a blog which is a part of the CBS News “48 Hours” franchise, launched last summer. CBS News tells WebNewser they did not pay for the photos.
