Jones told the CBS "Early Show" that Giordano was a friend, not a boyfriend, of Gardner's and that the two had a "a bit of a roller-coaster" relationship. "Good one day, not so great the next," she said, adding she had only heard about Giordano through Gardner and never met the man herself.

Gardner, 35, disappeared Aug. 2 while traveling with fifty-year-old Gary Giordano, apparently her friend. Giordano said she disappeared while snorkeling, but not everyone buys this. Her roommate, Christina Jones, was suspicious of Giordano before the trip — she tells CBS, "I was not excited about her going away with Gary." She adds that Giordano had reacted oddly to a previous change of plans: "When she changed her mind, the way he responded set off a firework within my own self, so I got worried when she said she was going to leave to go to Aruba with Gary."

A woman who used to date him contacted me and told me Giordano is very technologically savvy. This woman said he'd get into a person's email account, pick up their personality and would then take on that persona.


Giordano is currently being detained for questioning in Aruba, and as it turns out, he has a history of abuse accusations. According to the Washington Post, one ex-girlfriend says he "stalked her, secretly videotaped them having sex and then posted pornographic images of her on the Internet." His ex-wife accused him of attacking their son. And then there's this story, eerily reminiscent of Jones's early misgivings about Giordano:

Another woman who dated Giordano, Jeanette Farago, said in an interview with The Washington Post that Giordano stalked and harassed her while they both lived in Montgomery County. At one point, Farago said, Giordano offered to take her on a two-week cruise and bought her a ticket, but she refused to go. Giordano also showed up outside her window wearing a deer mask and illuminated his face with a cigarette lighter, she said. "He was just really creepy and scary," Farago said. "He scared the bejesus out of me."

Did Mark Giordano read/hack into Robyn Gardner email within three hourse of reporting the snorkeling incidence?  Was Mark Giordano privy to email communication between Robyn Gardner and Richard Forester?  Did a jealous rage cause the demise Robyn Gardner?

Forester points to concerns, however, that activity in Gardner's Gmail email account in the days since her disappearance may point back to Giordano.
 
"On Gmail, on the chat function that shows if you're active or not, there's a green indicator light, orange if you're idle and gray if you're off," he said.

"All day Wednesday and Thursday of last week it [Gardner's account], was green, orange and gray, and this is after she'd been reported missing," he said. "So somebody was on her Gmail account, getting in there. I was trying to talk to her, but couldn't."
 
"He [Giordano] has a keystroke program, this is just what I'm told, and is able to hack into people's email accounts," Forester said on "GMA."

Gardner, who lived and worked in Bethesda, left for Aruba on July 31st. Richard Forester says they had been dating for two and a half years, but quarreled before she left. He received his last e-mail from Gardner Tuesday, three hours before she was reported missing.

“The last message I got from her was ‘I love you,’” Forester said. “We will talk and sort things out when I get back,” Gardner wrote.

Missing in Aruba Suspect's Lawyer Says 'There's No Proof'
The attorney for a man being held in Aruba for the disappearance at sea of Robyn Gardner claimed today that there is no evidence that his client committed murder.

 Gary Giordano, 50, is being held as a suspect in the disappearance of Gardner, 35, of Frederick, Md., who vanished in the same Aruba town where another American woman, Natalee Holloway, disappeared six years ago.

 Giordano and Gardner traveled together to Aruba July 31, according to Aruba police. ::snipping2::

Giordano's attorney in Aruba, Michael Lopez, said there is no evidence that supports a murder charge for his client.

 "They suspect murder but there's no proof, to my knowledge," said Michael Lopez, Giordano's attorney in Aruba. "I don't see any proof. There's no proof and no motive." ::snipping2::



Natalee Holloway's Mom Gets Involved

 The Natalee Holloway Resource Center, a foundation started after Holloway's disappearance, has been offering help to Gardner's boyfriend, Richard Forester.

Giordano has been in custody since Friday and investigators are interviewing him every day. His Aruban lawyer insists he is innocent and is being unjustly detained.
"What we have to go on at this point in time is the story of her companion who says they went into the water together and she didn't come out," Stein said. "We are more concentrating on what he is saying and how we can either corroborate or disprove his statement."
The judge's pretrial detention order expires Monday. Prosecutors can ask for an extension but will have to present evidence to justify continuing to hold him, Stein said.

Can anyone translate this? and there is a picture of the car at the above link, but I can't transfer it here - sorry

I was curious as to what vehicle they had, and now knowing it is a Rav4, he could have traveled on the other side of the island with little problem since he had 4 wheel drive capability and the roads (if you can call them that) are rough to travel on - which means he could have done something with her there

US reporting of alleged snorkeling site incorrect         


Wednesday, 10 August 2011 22:04
 
 
Many US media have been reporting that the alleged area where the suspect in the dissaperance of the American woman Robyn Gardner says is Baby Beach. This information is incorrect. The suspect says that they went snorkeling behind the Nanki Country Club area. This is close to the Baby Beach area but is located between Baby Beach and Rodgers Beach.

Aruba authorities conducting extensive investigation on disappearance of American lady, no positive results yet

         


Wednesday, 10 August 2011 20:20
 
 
In an interview with Justice Minister Arthur Dowers, he said that information to the press will only be given by the district attorney, Mr. Taco Stijn, because the technical information issued has to be consistent. The minister said that no information on the content of the case will be issued to prevent disturbances in the investigation before it is concluded.

Minister Dowers said he had gone to the location where the lady disappeared at Nanki, San Nicolas during the massive, extensive search being conducted by police, maritime police, the coastguard and their partners, including the helicopter services. The search has not given any positive results; the minister said the press would be informed as soon as there is new information.

Aruba Tourism Authority monitoring social media very closely         

Thursday, 11 August 2011 11:35
 
During an interesting meeting with the Minister of Tourism and the director of the Aruba Tourism Authority they have informed local press that during the past days Aruba has been very much mentioned in different newscasts but also widely spoken about on social media.

The Aruba Tourism Authority constantly measures the expressions and opinions that are given on social media to better implement their strategy as to what's the best way to deal with all the media attention that Aruba is getting primarily in the United States.

Thursday morning the Minister of Tourism in Aruba Mr. Otmar Oduber held a meeting with different Aruban reporters. During this meeting the director of The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) Mrs. Ronella Tjin a Sjoe and Sue Ann Lee were also present.

The goal of the meeting was to inform the local press of the steps that the Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA)and the Government are doing in regards to the publicity that the case of the missing American woman is bringing to Aruba. The Minister informed that on an hourly basis they receive updates of all media publications and broadcasts that mention Aruba in relations to the on going investigation. The Tourism Authority receives many requests for information from international press but they are not commenting. This is because it is not advisable to directly mix tourism news with a judicial occurrence.

Aruba
US still drives business to Aruba after Holloway case closed
By Hazel Heyer | Jan 16, 2008


eTN caught up with Aruba’s minister of tourism and transportation, Edison Briesen, who said the island is back in business despite the revival of the Holloway incident, which has become fodder for the media.

eTN: Has this been a big challenge to tourism?

Briesen: Among all challenges we’ve faced, including airlift, US economy slowdown, gas prices etc, this particularly has taken up our time and resources. Everybody got involved in this case.  People from the tourism department have been moved to the justice department to help solve the disappearance.  This incident has kept us ‘hostage’ for more than a year. In 2006, we even launched an ad campaign worth $5 M in the US to counter the negative broadcast. On the other side of the coin, more people now know about Aruba. But I would not want Aruba to be known in the same way Iraq is known. One reason why we think it has been a hard blow to us.

Suspect Gary Giordano Sent Angry Texts to Robyn Gardner Before Disappearance


Gary Giordano had a history of sending aggressive, angry texts to missing Maryland womanRobyn Gardner, according to her best friend and roommate.

Christina Jones said Giordano, who is being held in an Aruba jail in connection with Gardner's disappearance, had previously asked Gardner to go on a cruise with him. When Gardner went away with Jones to New York instead, he flipped, Jones told ABC News.

"He was texting her while we were at breakfast, very angry at her because she decided she wasn't going to go on the cruise," Jones said. "And his responses by text, which I don't feel comfortable repeating, were aggressive, harmful, something that doesn't sit right within myself."

Gardner, 35, disappeared last week while on vacation with Giordano, whom she met on an online dating site over a year ago, according to Jones. Giordano told police the two were snorkeling together, but Gardner never returned to shore. He was arrested when police decided his story didn't add up, according to Aruba authorities.

Jones said that her friend was aware that Giordano, 50, had a history of domestic abuse allegations, and that they had a "rollercoaster friendship."

When Gardner told Jones she was going to Aruba with the volatile Giordano, Jones questioned her friend.

"When she came to me and said, 'Hey, I'm going to Aruba,' I said, 'Cool, I'm so happy, get out of town, why wouldn't you?'" Jones said. "And then she said she was going with Gary, it became a 'why? Why? Are you sure?'"

August 11th

Aruban authorities expect to soon enlist the help of the FBI and other American agencies with the investigation of the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, a 35-year-old Frederick woman.

Solicitor General Taco Stein said investigators have contacted American authorities in an effort to get information about Gardner and Gary Giordano, the 50-year-old Gaithersburg man detained in connection with her disappearance. But he said he expects American authorities will soon be asked to become more intimately involved in the case.

"Officially, we have not yet made a move in that direction ... but that is coming," Stein said.

HELLO ATA and Aruba.  The American lady went missing August 2nd...with involvement of an American man.  If you want to gain points, you should have immediately called the FBI and let them take over the investigation.  Once again, it's too little too late.  Once again the FBI will be contacted....sometime...to get information for your pitiful investigation.  Give it up!!!

The FBI is helping Aruban authorities investigate the disappearance of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner of Maryland. The assistance includes conducting interviews and may soon include a search of her traveling partner's house in Gaithersburg.

In Gaithersburg Thursday afternoon, the FBI did not say whether it will be searching the home of Gary Giordano, her traveling partner, for possible clues about his relationship with Robyn Gardner. But Aruban prosecutors told CNN that they are requesting that the FBI help with the investigation, including searching Giordano's house in Maryland.


Aruban prosecutors say that Giordano is no longer cooperating with the investigation and is claiming his rights not to talk. They also say they will be releasing Giordano's picture to help generate tips from the public.

Gardner was reported missing in Aruba last week, say officials with the Natalee Holloway Resource Center. Gardner was last seen on Tuesday, August 2nd at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in Oranjestad, Aruba.

http://wusa9.com/news/article/162086/373/Prosecutors-Giordano-Not-Cooperating-In-Gardner-Case



Again, with mixed media sources, info gets confused, but was she last seen at the Renaissance? what time, when would that be?  Supposedly she was seen at lunch at JADS dive...
Hopefully the FBI can and will search his house, computer/s in particular, at least to gain info to continue to hold him. If no evidence by Monday, they could let him go...

http://www.wsoctv.com/news/28838996/detail.html

CORNELIUS, N.C. -- A man at the center of the investigation of a woman who disappeared while snorkeling in Aruba has ties to the Charlotte area.
Gary Giordano, 50, lived in a home on Peninsula Club Drive on Lake Norman in Cornelius for nearly two years in the mid 2000s.
Neighbors told Eyewitness News he married a local Realtor, Connie Klein, in the back yard of his home.
The pair eventually divorced and Giordano moved back to Maryland, where he apparently met Robyn Gardner, the woman he traveled to Aruba with last week and who has since vanished.
Residents near Giordano's former home describe the father of three as a "family man" and said they were surprised by the news.
"I saw his picture and didn't recognize him. I just didn't put two and two together," said neighbor Janet Smith.
Other neighbors, who asked not to be identified, described a different side of Gary Giordano, including a domestic violence incident at his home involving Klein.
Eyewitness News obtained a copy of the Cornelius police report detailing the incident in February 2007. It indicates Klein called 911 after Giordano became drunk and disruptive and threw some items inside their home.
