I'm really for great injustice has been done here and that is that a man's life has been turned upside down his reputation destroyed. His business destroyed his life completely derailed. I don't I don't think he'll ever be able to put this behind them. And choreographed -- -- all Jose Baez attorney who spearheaded Casey Anthony's acquittal now gaining the release of another notorious suspect. He arrived on the -- well past midnight last night sitting down for late night interview. It's burning fishing expedition. It's -- from on the company. Giordano arrived in this desert island on July 31 with Gardner woman he is described as a plane rather than a lover.

A -- eerily similar in outcome to the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005. Another blond American woman who vanished from this idyllic island. You run binders that the man suspected of killing her was released he's now in prison in Lima Peru charged in the 2010 murder of the Peruvian woman. In contrast to vendors -- meandering and shifting story for -- narrative has been -- but consistent. Authorities. Look to hold. -- friends and family called for the investigation to continue. Saying it's unlikely that garden would have gone snorkeling in the first place -- authorities scheduled another hearing for tomorrow. With their prime suspect heading home. It's unclear they'll be able to compel American courts to send him back. If he -- authorities are ready to move for the prosecution. May have evidence against him. I think there's a good chance he'd be extradited. But if this is just an extradition. So that he couldn't sit in a jail cell. While they continue to investigate. Going to be a tough argument. Investigators here found they won't rest until -- -- the truth about what really happened to Robyn Gardner. But they seem no closer to finding that out and they worked for months ago.
