The source said Gary Giordano tried to redeem that part of a travel insurance policy taken out on Robyn Gardner, 35, who disappeared in Aruba on Aug. 2 while the two were vacationing.

Previous reports had said that Giordano bought a one-year insurance policy from American Express and named himself the beneficiary. The report said the policy included a $1.5 million accidental death policy.

Gardner, 35, was reported missing by Giordano, who said she was apparently pulled away by ocean currents while they were snorkeling. The pair had come to Aruba on July 31.

Giordano, a 50-year-old business owner from Gaithersburg, has been detained on suspicion of involvement in her death. His attorney has said he had nothing to do with her disappearance and has called for his release from jail.

Aruban Solicitor General Taco Stein said Giordano confirmed to investigators that he had travel insurance.

 Well then wouldn't he WANT her body to be foudn to prove her death and collect on the policy? Maybe it really was just travel insurance. Not that I think he's innocent...

I didn't know she knew him before she went to Aruba. Is he a friend or something? Cause the other guy is a boyfriend right?

Not really sure. I read something about they met online and they were staying in the same hotel room together. But yes apparently there is also a boyfriend. This whole story is so bizarre.
