WASHINGTON (AP) - An American businessman suspected in the presumed death of his traveling companion in Aruba says he had nothing to do with her disappearance.
During an 11-minute interview Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America," Gary Giordano refused to detail what happened to Robyn Gardner on Aug. 2, the day of her disappearance, saying he has told that story to investigators "50, 60 times." He has said she was swept out to sea while snorkeling.
Giordano tried to clarify aspects of his behavior investigators have called suspicious. He says the $1.5 million accidental death policy he took out on Gardner was part of a travel insurance package and that he "maxed out on everything."
Giordano gave the interview alongside his attorney, Jose Baez, with his three sons standing behind him.
