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.

    I just hope he doesn't benefit from the life insurance policy he took on her life. He is another person getting away with mukrder in Aruba. He must suffer some consequences from her death. If he can't be charged with her murder, take away the motive he had for killing her. That will be a bigger punishment for him. I hope some other woman doesn't fall victim to this man's scam and lose their life. He will then discover that murdering her for the life insurance policy was all for nothing.

      grow up, Aruba has nothing to do with it ... you need evidence to jail people ... he just got away with it because she was stupid enough to fall for it, next time stay home instead of going with a psycho just because you think he stupid and you are hot... chicks ... you need a brain on top of your hot bodies.
      This said, I don't know what he did, or didn't .. the story as it is told on the media is sure not reassuring, .. however, be aware that if the story was that the evidence suggest she was a drug addicted, media wouldn't tell yo that ... as they are making money by making yo believe the guy is a murder ... true or not ... for them it's about sucking you in, not about the murder nor justice.
      So grow up

    ok as I was saying WOMEN ... if you really have to pleasure yourself with a stranger (or like this one who thought she was gong to go free in Aruba with a stupid guy who would fall for her, despite not having any intention to please him), at least make sure o go with a girlfriend of your and do a 3some, ... otherwise, just stay home
    Aruba has nothing to do with the stupidity of the women who go there thinking they can get away with taking stupid risks

    The problem with American obsessed with this case and with Natalee Hollway cas is that they both are BLUE EYED BLOND WHITE GIRLS. If they were black, no TV, no NBC, no FOX, no Nanc Grace would have ever picked the story. Why is this a fact? Simply because there HUNDREDS of missing black children in the USA, hundreds dying of hunger in the USA and yet, they do not have the time to cover this. Racial profiling at its best.

      It appears it already has been taken away from him.. Such anger issues with women have mother foundations.

    The case is obviously can not be won with what the prosecutors have at this point. Let the guy go and track him till they have what they need, or move on.

    When someone doesn't agree with something you write, it is not necessary to call them ugly names. This entire mess is just so tragic and a family lost their loved one.

    The hateful words by one don not const-t-ite only to do the same. Having said that, I have a feeling it's a love/hate relationship that is the glue.

    He is guilty, not doubt. Sadly, no proof, no murder charge. He planned this out & thought he'd get away with it, along with the life insurance money on her. He should NOT get paid a cent over her disappearance. In fact, he should consider himself real lucky they were unable to find any concrete evidence to nail him & be put behind bars . He should not even try to sue Aruba for money for the many months of detainment, if he knows what's good for him. He is a "shady character." He may get away with this one, for now anyway, but "Karma" is a pretty powerful thing!
