    LOBBY FIGHT


    Shocking CCTV footage shows missing American tourist Robyn Gardner having a violent fight with her travel companion hours before her disappearance in Aruba, it was claimed today.

    Prime murder suspect Gary Giordano, who friends said she met on a swingers sex site, is alleged to have threatened to kill her while grabbing her by the neck and shoving her into an elevator on August 2 - the last day Miss Gardner, 35, was seen alive.

    LOBBY FIGHT



    Ann Angela, a spokeswoman for the Aruban public prosecutors office, said authorities are still trying to piece together what Giordano and Gardner were doing in the days before her disappearance, and how they were getting along. She said police have reviewed surveillance video from the hotel where they stayed, and examined images of Giordano and Gardner, but didnít see anything unusual.

    ďWe have the video and we donít see anything,Ē Angela said.

    BLOOD ON ROCK

    Authorities also found blood on a rock near the restaurant not far from where the two were last seen together, ABC News reported.

    BLOOD ON ROCK


    During the hearing, it was also disclosed that DNA test results on blood on a towel showed the blood belong to Robyn Gardner, according to Lejuez.

    Giordano's attorney said this fact is consistent with his client's statement to police that Gardner cut her toe while coming out of the water while they were swimming. Police have denied reports that Gardner's blood was found on a rock at the beach where Giordano says they went swimming.

    A purported key piece evidence in the mysterious disappearance of missing American woman Robyn Gardner doesn't exist, police have revealed.

    Blood was reportedly found on a rock near the restaurant not far from where Gardner and her traveling companion Gary Giordano were last seen together.

    But Aruba Solicitor General Taco Stein said in an interview Saturday night: "The detail about the hand print and blood is not true."

    "That is not something that we have found," the Solicitor General said, adding: "Let me put that to rest as that only hinders the investigation."

    Robyn Gardner was groggy from sleeping pills, vodka and a meal when she went into the water in Aruba where she quickly cut her toe, forcing her out of the water, a source told ABC News

    TOE

    Lejuez said that during the hearing prosecutors disclosed that a DNA test confirmed that blood found on a towel came from Gardner. But the attorney said that Giordano has maintained that she cut her toe on a rock while they were on a beach and used the towel to stop the bleeding.

    The couple allegedly walked behind the restaurant to a jetty over a rocky beach, where Giordano claimed Robyn had cut her bare foot on the rocks.

    Cameras


    Surveillance video from the restaurant shows Giordano in his rental car parked in the back of the bar and restaurant twice, which he told police was so that he could park in the shade, according to the police source. No one else is visible through the car's tinted windows.

    <snip>

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/...2#.TwzwQ6XlOd0




    MARTIN SAVIDGE, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, here is how that can go down. First of all, the way that ABC describes all the cameras is not possible because we walked around the place. There are six cameras at the front of the facility. There are none at the back of this facility. So you can`t see what`s going on behind the restaurant.

    Witnesses: Fishermen:

    Second video has information on this link.

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/...ry?id=14361836

    The latest witness account and the photographs of Gardner and Giordano together emerged just one day after a witness came forward to dispute Giordano's account of what happened the day Gardner disappeared.

    The witness says he was fishing on a beach on that day and he saw the two take a walk along the reef around 4 p.m., but they never went in the water.

    A short time later, the couple drove away and he never saw either of them again, the witness says.

    Witnesses when GG went for help and Mr. Silva's statement:

    Toupee~

    Officers having been tracing the movements of Giordano in the hours before Ms Gardner's disappearance, but said they have had trouble identifying him in surveillance video because he frequently changes his toupees.

    Toupee~

    DIAZ: Now, there were also reports of a bloody hand print, but Taco Stein is backing off from that claim now.

    Martin Savidge, I want to go back to you very, very quickly. What about that bloody hand print? Is it rumor or real?

    SAVIDGE: No, it appears at this point it is not real. Authorities really are playing that down. They say it never existed. Unfortunately, if it had existed, that could have been a key piece of evidence. Of course, one, it could have indicated that you really had a strong sense of foul play. Also if you could check it with DNA you could have perhaps learned a lot.

    But they say no; that was not the case. Same with what was described as an unused condom. That also has not been found.

    There is a lot of misinformation you will find on this island which is why the reporting has to be very careful. There were reports that Giordano would wear different toupees to try to confuse the security cameras that maybe watching him at any different time. Authorities have laughed that off and said that`s just not the case. He has one toupee and he wasn`t doing anything like that.http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIP...2/ijvm.01.html
