Gary Giordano is released from Aruba jail after four months inside over missing Robyn Gardner,, But remains PRIME Suspect

A U.S. businessman held over the disappearance of his travelling companion during a holiday on the island of Aruba has been released from jail.

Gary Giordano, 50, was taken into custody on August 5 after Robyn Gardner vanished during a five-day trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

He was free to leave the island tonight but has been told that investigators still consider him a suspect in Ms Gardner's disappearance.

Giordano left prison in an SUV with his lawyers and was hidden from view. His immediate destination was unclear as it was too late to catch a direct commercial flight back to the U.S.

Prosecutors said they were still trying to build a case against him and will seek his extradition if an appeal's court ruling, expected tomorrow, issues a reversal and orders the businessman back to jail.

Aruba's solicitor general Taco Stein said: 'The case does not end here. Mr. Giordano will remain our prime suspect.' Read More
