Louisiana authorities are investigating the death of Nathan Millard, a Georgia father-of-five whose decomposed body was found rolled up in a carpet in a vacant lot in South Baton Rouge.
Officials want to speak with Derrick Perkins, who was seen driving a 2003 Toyota Camry near the location where Millard was found.
Perkins is not currently considered a “person of interest” in the case, but authorities believe he may have information about Millard’s final hours.
Perkins is also being sought for probation violation, criminal damage to property, three counts of access device fraud, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Police do not suspect foul play in Millard’s death, but the official cause of death is pending the completion of a full autopsy.
Millard’s family has said investigators told them he likely died of an overdose. Police Capt. Kevin Heinz said investigators believe Millard died at another location and that someone moved his body to the vacant lot.
On the night of February 22, Millard visited Happy’s Irish Pub with a client after attending a Louisiana State University basketball game.
He left the pub alone around 11:30 p.m. after being cut off and headed back to his nearby hotel but was not heard from the next morning.
Last week, video emerged of Millard walking with a mystery man along Florida Boulevard in Baton Rouge shortly before his disappearance.
Millard’s death has left his wife, Amber, their 7-year-old daughter, two teenage sons from a previous marriage, and two teenage stepsons. Police may still charge a person for something like illegal disposal of human remains.
