Missing in Aruba … Case Just Got More Bizarre, Gary Giordano Took Out $1.5 million Policy out on Robyn Gardner before Trip to Aruba & Pornographic Pics

 

Aruba: missing persons, accidental death insurance policies and “beyond pornographic” pics, OH MY!!!

The missing persons case of Robyn Gardner in Aruba  just got more bizarre.

Robyn Gardner has been missing since Aug. 2, 2011 when she was supposedly pulled out to sea by strong currents while snorkeling in Aruba while on vacation with travel companion Gary Giordano. Needless to say the Aruba police have been suspect of Giordano’s story from the outset as there have been inconsistencies. Giordano presently has been ordered to spend another 16 days in jail by an Aruba judge as he is suspected in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner. Now we are learning, according to ABC News, that Giordano took out a $1.5 million on Gardner for a weekend tryst.

Although many individuals do take out travel insurance before they go on vacation, this one raises some eye brows. You take out an insurance policy on some one, who you barely know, who is not your fiance, girl friend or even acquaintance.The purchasing of a policy almost brings a form of premeditation into Gardner’s death. According to sources, Giordano tried to redeem the accidental death insurance policy.

“We knew from Mr. Giordano himself that travel insurance was taken out and that’s what we are investigating. It was subpoenaed and we are investigating that material to see if it bears relevance to the investigation,” Stein said Wednesday.

Travel Insurance Policy Focus of Robyn Gardner Investigation

In Maryland, Gardner’s live-in boyfriend Robert Forester said the revelations about the insurance policy were disturbing.

“To be honest, I was saddened to hear it. I can’t believe that Robyn would ever sign something like that voluntarily. Maybe if she was forced to, maybe if she was misinformed to what it was,” Forester said.

But wait, this missing persons case just got more sordid. According to People magazine, pics retrieved from Giordano’s digital camera that had Giordano and Gardner, who were seen posing together in sexual positions that were described as “beyond pornographic.”

The magazine reported that the photos, which it described as “beyond pornographic,” showed Gardner in sexual positions with “parts of” Giordano in photos taken with his digital camera. People reports that Stein revealed the information about the photos.

Obviously Gary Giordano is guilty of playing a part in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, that is not the story here.  MEDIA, KEEP YOUR EYE ON BALL. THIS MEAN YOU NANCY GRACE. This is not, nor is it nothing like the case of Natalee Holloway, who went missing in Aruba in 2005. That is the story. MSM, focus, focus. Examine how the Aruba police and the judges are handling the accounts, prosecution and legal rulings in this case. Notice there were no two black security guards arrested in Robyn’s disappearance. Notice they detained Gary Giordano from leaving the island. The same could not be said for Joran Van der Sloot, who even in an FBI-Aruba sting for extortion was allowed to hop on a plane, go to Peru and kill again. Why is the case of Robyn Gardner being handled so differently when the suspect is an American, not a privileged little Dutch boy?

A NOTE TO THE MSM … THIS AIN’T NATALEE HOLLOWAY … NOT EVEN CLOSE!

      Maybe they should have checked the insurance policies taken out on that Holloway girl too.

      Can’t see how the case is handled so differently.
      Joran & friends were arrested after a few days and so was this guy. Their custody was extended, so is Giordano’s.

      Of course no security guards were arrested because Giordano didn’t implicate someone else.

      And if all that remains is just that Giordano was the last to have seen her then he, just like Joran, will not be prosecuted.

      BTW I’ve seen no official confirmation of the $1.5 million policy, just ABC rumors.

      Giordano must have chosen Aruba because of its reputation for not investigating crimes.

    4. Scott on August 19th, 2011 8:43 am

      Buster…the insurance policy IS confirmed…these aren’t rumors..the paperwork is there…it’s on file with AMEX….JFK…why can’t people read….

      “beyond pornographic.” WTF does that mean? Non-consensual? She was of age, so its not “that”.

      As for the bigger picture. It sounds to me like he was an experienced snorkeler. There are others who have found his internet moniker and traced him to various SCUBA sites. The “Boyfriend” claims she is not the type to go snorkeling, which implies that she would not be used to strong ocean currents.

      So, the question to the Aruba folks is how likely is it that a current could have carried a novice-ish woman away? What if she lost her flippers?

      Don’t you need a “body” to cash in on a insurance policy? Seems this creep is also a idiot.

      MATT LAUER, “THE TODAY SHOW”: According to “People” magazine, Mr. Stein, you describe Mr. Giordano in this way — and they have you quoted here — “He is a mean bastard.” And then the next quote, “The way he treats women, it`s all geared toward himself.”

      Do you think that that quote coming from you in some ways might be problematic at this stage of the case?

      STEIN: Well, I don`t know. I can have an opinion myself about a person. I`m not dealing with the case myself. So my colleagues who will take the case to court will not be biased.

      Aruban police question Holloways, upset on leaks

      Holloway’s relatives have publicly criticized Aruban police for asking questions that seemed to turn the focus of the hunt for the teenager toward her family. Investigators have questioned Twitty and Dave Holloway about possible life insurance money and a trust fund established to accept donations from the public after Holloway’s disappearance.

      Dompig said authorities “had to ask certain questions concerning related issues because in any investigation one should be able to exclude all possibilities.”

      “This is also standard procedure in (the) U.S. in any investigation,” he said. “The family should not have felt this as an insult nor a witch hunt.”

      Gary Giordano Tried to Collect Insurance Payout on Robyn Gardner: Sources
      Aug. 18, 2011

      Gary Giordano, the only suspect in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner in Aruba, tried to redeem an insurance policy on Gardner that could be worth up to $1.5 million, according to reports.

      Giordano moved to collect on the policy, which named him as beneficiary, within two days of reporting Gardner missing, the Associated Press reported.

      Police were investigating an accidental death insurance policy for Gardner that named Giordano, 50, as the beneficiary, ABC News had reported earlier this week.

    12. A Texas Grandfather on August 20th, 2011 5:00 pm

      This case is beginning to look like a planned way to collect the insurance proceeds. The suspect hires a woman that is more than likley a high class prostitute who will travel with a client.

      He takes her to Aruba where he figures he can get away with a murder without prosecution. He buys an insuranc policy for travel on her life, enjoys a few days of her services and then either sells her or kills her and hides the body.

      The difference this time is Aruba is not in the business of protecting a connected family from prosecution.

      Could it be that Gary Giordano did not anticipate Aruban authorities challenging his snorkling/ drowning story?

      Could it be that Gary Giodano and/or Aruban authorities did not anticipate the media to become an issue? Think about it. If Richard Forester had not contacted the NHRC would Giodano had caught that plane home to the States and … the disappearance of Robyn Gardner would have been categorized as an accidental drowning. Case Closed!

      BETH HOLLOWAY, NATALEE HOLLOWAY`S MOTHER: Well, first of all, Richard made the call to the Natalee Holloway Resource Center on August the 8th, which was a great move on his part. We were able to immediately pull together some photos that Richard had given us.

      And the biggest asset of the Natalee Holloway Resource Center is that we provide is we send out the media release. And as we al know, media is essential in helping to solicit tips and eyewitnesses. So we got that ball rolling through Richard`s efforts.
