A man who was reported missing from Georgia was found dead in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, rolled up in a rug.
Nathan Millard died from an accidental drug overdose.
Three people have been charged in connection with his death. Derrick Perkins was charged with hiding the body and using the victim’s debit card at different businesses, while Tabbetha Barner was charged with prostitution and failure to seek assistance. Tiffany Ann Guidry was charged with unlawful disposal of human remains, prostitution, and failure to seek assistance.
Baton Rouge police found Guidry standing on the corner of Nicholson Drive and Terrance Street after receiving an anonymous tip.
Millard was visiting Baton Rouge from Covington, Georgia, for a work trip when he went missing. He was last seen on February 23 and was found dead in a vacant lot on Scenic Boulevard on March 6. According to Perkins, he, Millard, and two other people, only identified as L.M. and C., were riding around doing crack cocaine when they split up with the two individuals at a gas station. Millard had voiced concerns that L.M. and C. might have been trying to rob him. Perkins said that he and Millard picked up Guidry in that area before going to a convenience store to get cash.
From there, they went to a nearby home where Perkins picked up Barner and took her back to the residence where Millard and Guidry were. Perkins allegedly said he stepped outside because Millard and the women started shooting up drugs with a syringe.
Perkins claimed that the other three had him pick up items from a store using Millard’s debit card.
He said he smoked crack cocaine on the front porch while waiting for the three to stop having sex. Barner asked for more drugs, and Perkins later returned to the residence, where Barner said that Millard had died. Perkins applied the emergency medicine Narcan to save the man, but it failed, according to police. In Perkins’ alleged account, Barner left, and he and Guidry got rid of the body.
Police questioned Barner, who denied meeting Millard. She claimed that Perkins showed up at her home seeking Narcan. She tried to go with him to help, but Guidry was in the front passenger seat, and the backseat was too cluttered for her to sit.
Anyone with information on Barner’s whereabouts was asked to call the Armed Robbery Division or Crime Stoppers.
