FBI searches Maryland home of man suspected in missing woman case

FBI agents on Friday night searched the Maryland home of the suspect in the recent disappearance of an American woman in Aruba, an agent said.

The search is occurring in the Gaithersburg residence of Gary Giordano, who is currently being held in an Aruban jail, FBI Special Agent Rich Wolf told CNN.

Agents, wearing vests that said FBI and carrying empty cardboard and plastic boxes, arrived about 8:40 p.m. Friday. About 15 unmarked cars could be seen on the street, as well as a Montgomery County police vehicle.

Supervisory Special Agent Philip Celestini, who was at the residence, declined to comment further on the search, citing the active investigation.

      Hey banasy !!!! I was going to ask the same question. Has Aruba become the new killing fields ? Sounds like one island to steer clear from.

    I guess the real question is why a woman who is with a live in boyfriend is going on line to meet men and then goes off on vacation to Aruba with said man, especially when he isn't even good looking by accounts. Guess he was sHelling out some big bucks to her.

      My thoughts exactly. Post racy photos of yourself and take off with a guy you don't know. There are some incredibly stupid women out there.
