EXCLUSIVE: Jose Baez, the winning defense lawyer in the high-profile murder case against Florida mother Casey Anthony, has been retained to represent the suspect in the disappearance of a Maryland woman in Aruba, Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera has learned.

Gary Giordano, 50, is being held without bail in Aruba following the disappearance of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner, a woman he met online.

Baez and an investigator are in Aruba now interviewing witnesses and probing relevant locations in the case, Rivera reported.

Giordano told local police that Gardner was swept out to sea when the two went on a snorkeling trip on Aug. 2. Large-scale searches to find Gardner’s body have proved unsuccessful.

Giordano helped in the search but later was later held by authorities after he attempted to leave the country.
