Gary Giordano, Robyn Gardner Murder Suspect, Released By Aruban Officials

by at . Comments

Gary Giordano, the businessman who continues to be the prime suspect in the strange disappearance of Maryland woman Robyn Gardner in Aruba, has been released.

The decision to cut Giordano loose came just hours after Gardner’s cousin said the family was “disappointed” by Aruban authorities' fruitless effort to find her body.

Gardner is presumed dead and Giordano is believed by many to be involved in her mysterious vanishing this summer. But proving it has been a different matter.

“Needless to say, our family is very disappointed that after all this time, we are no closer to finding out what happened to Robyn,” Kelly Reed said in a statement.

Gary Giordano, also of Maryland, had been in police custody for almost four months, and authorities insist that he's lying about the fate of his traveling companion.

He was freed after a judge ruled prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to hold him there any longer. Giordano issued no comments as he departed the facility.

Gardner, 35, met Giordano, 50, through an online dating site and the pair took a vacation to the Caribbean island on July 31. Soon after, things went horribly awry.

Giordano reported Robyn Gardner missing just two days later. He said Gardner was pulled out to sea by a strong current as they snorkeled near the shore.

Three days after her mysterious disappearance, Giordano was locked up as witnesses disputed his story, and after graphic photos were found on his camera.

But the body of Robyn Gardner has yet to be discovered.

“The case does not end here,” Aruba’s Solicitor General Taco Stein vowed. “Mr. Giordano will remain our prime suspect. We know he is lying; His story is not true.”

Prosecutors said they will continue to build a case and will seek his extradition from the U.S. if an appeals court issues a reversal and orders him back behind bars.

Saw you last night at Leeds a srueois gig, we felt you had a lot on your mind. We hope to see you soon, stay healthy and safe Peter xx


She's 35 years old & has a boyfriend. What was she thinking when
she went online dating? She knew this guy wasn't really nice by his
attitude & comments he's made. I think she only went w/him so she
can have a free vacation. What turned out free....cost a lot more. She paid it with her life.
She was adviced by her roomate not to go, but she did it anyway. Now.. he's out free as a bird & maybe looking for his next victim.
Ms. Gardner should have been very very careful with the company she
keeps. Sharing a room also tells you, he wanted sex. Yuck!!!! Kelly
Reed I feel badly for your family specially her parents...but she
made that decision to join him there. Maybe he's got the idea when Natalee disappeared. That case hasn't been solve either, don't expect the investigation to move forward. Sorry....


That really sucks. I'm sorry for her family.


It is my understanding that these two adults were Not a couple. It is also my understanding that even though he did Not know her for a long period of time, he taken out a large as in $Million Dollar Insurance Policy on this young woman. We may Never know what happened to Ms. Gardner, but hopefully her family will continue to ask questions about the disappearance of their loved one. By all indications, Gary Giordano Never had an emotional attachment to Ms. Gardner, so it is Not surprising that he will Not be volunteering any information that can help bring closure to this horrific turn of events.
