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.
