After vanishing during a business trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a Georgia father of five was found murdered, wrapped in plastic and carpet along the side of the road.
Nathan Millard, 42, a Covington, Georgia man, disappeared after he went to Happy’s Irish Pub, which is located across the street from his hotel, on February 22nd. Millard’s wife said that he had been to a college basketball match before going to Happy’s Irish Pub.
Later, his body was found six miles from where he had been last seen. The body was covered in plastic and wrapped in a rug.
According to police, there was no evidence of blunt force trauma or gunshot wounds. A preliminary report by the medical examiner showed that there was no evidence of trauma to the body from either external or internal sources. Toxicology findings will be included in the final autopsy report.
Captain Kevin Heinz, of the Baton Rouge Police’s violent crimes unit, stated that “We don’t have any evidence that there was any foul play.” “We are investigating how he got to where he is now.”
WBRZ-TV reported Millard was taken from the pub because he was too drunk and that he left around 11:30 p.m. Police found Millard on surveillance video and determined there were no signs of distress. According to them, the last time they saw Millard was at 4:30 AM that morning.
Millard’s wallet and phone were discovered on the ground nearby his hotel at some point the following day. After a passerby reported a foul odor, Millard’s body was discovered wrapped in a carpet two weeks later on March 6.
His wife stated that the last time they spoke was when he called her FaceTime from the game to show her the seats.
She said, “I never thought it would be my last call with him.”
The investigation continues.
