Two individuals have been charged with unlawful disposal of remains in connection with the disappearance of a Georgia man last month.

Baton Rouge police arrested a woman on Friday in connection with a missing tourist who was discovered dead alongside a Louisiana roadway earlier this month.

They added that 27-year-old Tiffany Ann Guidry was booked on accusations of unlawful disposal of human remains and refusal to seek assistance in relation to the man’s death.

According to authorities, Derrick Perkins, 45, was previously arrested in connection with the disappearance of Nathan Millard, 42.

Perkins was charged with illegal disposal of human remains, obstruction of justice, simple criminal damage to property, and neglect to seek help.

Police say Tabbetha Barner, 33, of Baton Rouge is wanted for failing to seek assistance in the man’s death.

It is unclear whether the suspects have legal representation. Friday evening, the public defender’s office in the Baton Rouge area did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Millard flew to Baton Rouge from Covington, Georgia, last month.

On February 23, he attended a basketball game at Louisiana State University and went to Happy’s Irish Pub with a client, according to police and Texas EquuSearch, an organisation that searches for missing persons.

According to EquuSearch, Millard was presumed to be returning to his hotel room at 11:30 p.m., but he did not come.

Police stated that surveillance footage showed him in the vicinity of a Greyhound stop. Capt. Kevin Hines of Baton Rouge stated that a security officer offered to call an Uber or phone the police because the man appeared out of place.

The phone and wallet of Millard were discovered several streets away, according to EquuSearch.

He was discovered dead in a rolled-up rug almost a week after his disappearance.

According to Hines, preliminary autopsy results did not indicate foul play. Shane Evans, chief of investigations for the East Baton Rouge coroner’s office, stated that the full results will be published once toxicology tests, which could assist explain how Millard died, are finished.

According to NBC affiliate WVLA of Baton Rouge, court documents filed in support of the arrests of the three suspects indicate that Millard was on a drug binge and died from an overdose.

According to jail records, Perkins was being held in lieu of a $1.4 million bail amount. Not yet was Guidry identified as being in custody.

She told NBC station WXIA in Atlanta that Nathan Millard was a construction executive with five children, including two stepsons, two adolescent boys from a previous marriage, and a 7-year-old daughter he shared with wife Amber Millard.
