Gary Giordano, the Gaithersburg man in connection with the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, is suing to cash in on an insurance policy he took out on the missing North Bethesda woman, NBC Washington reports.
Giordano is suing American Express for $3.5 million, according to the report. He argues in court papers that the company should pay the full death benefit because Gardner is presumed dead, NBC Washington reported.
Giordano has maintained his innocence, telling officials in Aurba that Gardner disappeared while snorkeling. The two had been vacationing together on the Carribbean island.
