In July 1996, 31-year-old Canadian, Blair Adams, was found deceased in a parking lot of a Knoxville, Tennessee, hotel. He was found naked from the waist down and his body was surrounded in almost $4000 worth of Canadian, American, and German currency. An autopsy revealed that he had died from a blow to the stomach. An investigation revealed that Blair had been acting very bizarrely in the weeks running up to his death - he repeatedly claimed that people were attempting to kill him and he travelled thousands of miles from his home before arriving in Knoxville, where he died. On 5 July, he lifted out all of his money from his bank and took all of his valuable items such as gold and jewellery. He then made his way to the Canadian-American border where he was turned away due to the large amount of money he was carrying which made the border police believe he was a drug trafficker. The following day, he showed up at his work in Surrey, British Columbia and explained that he was quitting. From there he brought an one way ticket to Germany before going to a friend’s home to explain that somebody was trying to kill him and he desperately needed to cross the border. The following day, he rented a car and attempted to get through the border again before driving to Seattle where he brought a one way ticket to Washington D.C. Once there, he drove to Knoxville and hitchhiked to a nearby hotel after he couldn’t get his car to start working again. The manager of the hotel recalls that Blair came in and out of the lobby of the hotel a total of five times before finally renting a room. He said Blair then left the hotel and that was the last time he was ever seen alive. The following day, Blair’s semi-naked body was discovered in the parking lot. Authorities believe that his paranoia was all in his head but that would not explain how he ended up, murdered, in a hotel parking lot.
