Some reportedly graphic and disturbing photos of Robyn Gardner are now part of the investigation into her disappearance in Aruba. Authorities said the photos came from her travel partner, Gary Giordano, who is now also accused of trying to cash in on Gardner's presumed death.

A lawyer for Gary Giordano, who's been detained in Aruba since the presumed death of his traveling companion, says he will appeal a judge's order detaining his client at least 60 more days.

Giordano, of Gaithersburg, Md., has been in police custody since Aug. 5. Attorney Michael Lopez says he will appeal the judge's decision by Monday's deadline. Lopez declined further comment Thursday, saying he is still studying the detention order for Giordano.

The judge says authorities can hold Giordano as a suspect in the presumed drowning of Robyn Gardner, 35.

Giordano says Gardner disappeared while snorkeling, but police say they found inconsistencies in his story. He was taken into custody Aug. 5 trying to catch a flight out of Aruba, telling Customs he was switching flights because of the weather and Gardner was taking another flight, sources said.

Lopez says there is no evidence of a crime. Gardner's body has not been found.

Aruba Solicitor General Taco Stein has said manslaughter charges are being considered.
