Gary Giordano, suspected in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, is trying to collect on a life insurance policy.

Gary Giordano, the Gaithersburg, Md. man suspected in the presumed death of his traveling companion in Aruba, is seeking to collect on a travel insurance policy in the woman's name.

In a lawsuit, Giordano says that AMEX Assurance Company owes him $3.5 million under a policy purchased before last summer's trip, according to the Associated Press.

He says his companion, Robyn Gardner, is presumed dead. Giordano was detained for months after Gardner's disappearance but has denied wrongdoing. A judge ordered him released in November because of a lack of evidence. Giordano says the lawsuit speaks for itself and declined further comment.

An American Express Co. spokeswoman says there's a 365-day waiting period to file such a claim.
