I think that the worker at the bus station has no motive to lie about him asking for something to make him feel better and a girl to take back to his room. However I agree that the stories we are hearing from lifelong criminal scumbags about what transpired that night are most likely 90-100 percent false. I think Nathan, despite his addiction problems had to be very very VERY naive to seek these things out from total strangers. He just was thinking about his addictions and didn't even realize that he could become the victim of criminals. So yeah, they probably drugged him with something unknown to him with the intent of robbing him. They certainly weren't trying to help him.
I went back and read the warrants of what Barner and Perkins claim happen. I tried to edit my post where I stated that I believed Barner; however, it was past the 60-minute limit. I don't believe her, either. I'm like you. Most of what both Barner and Perkins stated to police, I believe, are total lies. I just hope that Guidry tells what really happened.
I don't understand how Millard felt safe wandering the streets at night by himself. That security guard at the Greyhound Bus Station was alarmed enough to ask him if he needed help. I am sure that he stuck out like a sore thumb.
I live a pretty sheltered life; however, if I'm Millard and looking for a good time, I would be looking on Craigslist for someone who would come to my room to give me a "massage." Wouldn't that be safer?
Also, don't they have hookers in the hotel bars or near the hotels trying to hook up with the out-of-town businessmen? Maybe, I watch too many movies...
I guess that I can't wrap my head around what he did that evening. It seems like he was on a suicide mission. I also would like to hear more about this business trip and the real reason that he was in town.
When my husband is on business trips, they usually all end up back at the hotel bar. I find it strange that Millard is cut off and leaves by himself. Why didn't his business partner leave with him, or was the business partner even out at the bar with him that night?
