Around 3:30 a.m. on March 6, Millard’s body was found in Baton Rouge and police are looking into how it got to where it was found.
On March 7, the family of Nathan Millard, 42, told WAFB that an autopsy was completed and investigators said it showed “no internal or external trauma” to the body.
At a news conference the same day, the Baton Rouge Police Department confirmed foul play is not suspected in the case as of now.
Heinz said where Millard's body was found was "most likely not where he died."
“I know that he was placed there, obviously by another individual. We would like to know who and why," Captain Kevin Heinz said, adding, "But just from the autopsy results that were given by the coroner’s office, at this time it doesn’t appear to be any signs of foul play.”
The official cause and manner of death are still pending based on the completion of the final autopsy report. Further studies still need to be completed, including toxicology testing.
Loved ones told WAFB authorities believe the Millard may have died from an accidental overdose. “And look, we’ll ask whoever put him there. If something happened and there was a moment of panic, come forward," Heinz said. "We just want to know what happened to him. Our goal is to find out what happened to him."
Millard, a father was missing for nearly two weeks after he left on a business trip to Baton Rouge. On Feb. 22, he and a client reportedly went to an LSU basketball game before heading downtown to a bar.
