Prosecutors can't hold man in missing-woman case, Aruban judge rules

A judge in Aruba has turned down prosecutors' request to hold American Gary Giordano for 30 more days while authorities continue to investigate the August disappearance of his traveling companion, Robyn Gardner, his attorney told CNN Friday.

    Looking to get rid of your broad? Daughter or significant other, send 'em to Aruba. They can't solve sh!t over there!

    So, if you want to off someone, all you have to do is take them to Aruba?

      Yep, or Florida. If you want to make millions in book and movie deals, I suggest Orlando...though you'll be in jail a little longer and get some wicked cool publicity before they'll let you go. Otherwise, no difference.

      Yeah, since absolutely nobody gets killed in the United States, or wherever you're from...

    Aruban authorities are useless. The moral of the story is..if you want to get rid of someone...take them to Aruba.

      The only sensible thing to do is NEVER let anyone take you Aruba.

      Last seen she was wearing a long dress. The question has never been answered if her dress,pocketbook,shoes etc. were ever found. I don't know anything about sharks but if she was killed and thrown in the sea would the sharks swallow her dress and her body or do they spit out something like clothing? It's an horrific thought but I thought I would ask it in case there are any people knowledgeable about sharks out there.

    I think it is time for American tourists to boycott going to Aruba and maybe in the future this will not happen.

      Useless comment. As if in America NOBODY gets killed, disappears, or cases don't get resolved. Go learn something..

      Or maybe only have Romantic getaways in other countries with people you've actually cultivated a personal relationship with. That would probably be a good place to start. Call me crazy and old fashioned and all. 🙂

    Send him back here. I'm sure someone can arrange for him to be taken care of. Oh, and let's cut all diplomatic ties to Aruba and issue a general warning about traveling there. That should f up their tourism nicely.

    That woman's death is not ARUBA's fault.
    It's her OWN fault for going on a vacation with a COMPLETE stranger and an OBVIOUS psychopath. All you have to do is take ONE look at that guy to know he's a major CREEPOID.

      I see now we are judging people based on their appearance.

      true....but the shame of it all is that this guy will walk away with a million dollars. I'd have more faith in Barney Fyfe than the Aruban police.
