Aruba Police To Re-Enact Drowning Of Md. Tourist

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — The Aruban prosecutor’s office says it will re-enact the alleged drowning of a Maryland woman to test her companion’s account of the incident.

Solicitor General Taco Stein tells The Associated Press the re-enactment will take place soon but he won’t say when. Police will play the roles of Maryland businessman Gary Giordano and alleged drowning victim Robyn Gardner. Investigators want to know if it’s possible for Gardner to have drowned while snorkeling as Giordano described.

Stein declined Thursday to disclose the date of the exercise to discourage spectators. Giordano has been detained since Aug. 5 on suspicion of involvement in Gardner’s presumed death. He denies any wrongdoing and her body has not been found.

    That body went out to sea with some help on a garbage dump trash dump. That’s how Aruba deals with it’s waste. He had help from somebody with knowledge of sanitation.

  • Stupid Police BS

    I recall watching an episode of “I Shouldn’t Be Alive” recently. A shark attack victim described being bitten by a great white shark, and being carried away from shore and “out to sea” by the shark before escaping from the grip of the shark and swimming to safety.

    Perhaps the police could wait for a great white shark to be present, before reenacting the drowning inciident. Best to err on the safe side for accuracy.
