Gary Giordano, Aruba Murder Suspect, Hires Casey Anthony Lawyer Jose Baez

by at . Comments

Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, has joined the legal team of Gary Giordano, the prime suspect in the mysterious disappearance of Robyn Gardner.

Guy certainly doesn't back away from a challenge.

Giordano remains detained in Aruba, the Caribbean island where he was on vacation with Gardner, who was last seen August 2. What happened to her?

That's what officials believe he's not telling them.

Giordano has claimed Gardner was swept out to sea when the two went snorkeling August 2, but inconsistencies and graphic photos suggest otherwise.

Police clearly don't believe the 50-year-old, but Robyn Gardner has not been found, and he hasn't been formally charged in conjunction with her death.

Enter Jose Baez, who helped Casey Anthony beat a murder charge at what seemed like impossible odds. He's in Aruba and has already met with Gary.

Baez will not serve as the lead attorney in the case, but will consult with Giordano's team regarding forensic evidence in the case and likely more.
