That's a good find there, RobinW!

I also below the chances of solving this one are pretty remote, just as the step father said. I am curious as to why his mother is saying this about the Olympic games, and why it was never previously disclosed. That seems really, really odd.

Just curious, do you have google alerts set up for your favorites?

I'm on the Unresolved Mysteries subreddit almost daily, which is where I usually find out about these updates. This post was actually made by the writer of the article, who even comments about his odd interactions with Blair's mother:

Thanks . I need to check that more often. It's hard enough to keep up to date with this site.

I guess it doesn't surprise me that Blair's mother seems so odd. There could be a number of factors at play. The first mom that comes to mind is Noreen Gosh. God bless her soul.

After reading this article, I can only think of three good theories:

1) He visited a prostitute and they planned on beating and robbing him, but they were scared off and bolted

2) He met someone for sex and somehow made them mad (either humiliated or asked them to do something weird) and that person snapped

3) Seeing as Blair was obviously having some sort of psychological problems (real or imagined) in the days before his death, I wouldn't rule out him harming himself and/or paying someone to beat him up

The fact that so much money and valuables were left right there says either robbery played no part of this, or the person had to get out in a hurry. I don't put a ton of stock in theory #3 above, but then again it wouldn't be the first time something like that happened. His mother's statement only muddy the waters more, and it makes you think there is serious mental issues in that family.

This is just such an odd case. Who the hell rolls with gold coins and bars in a fanny pack?

Interesting. That, coupled with the new article makes me convinced more than ever that this was a sex act turned into murder. But it's still baffling.

-Blair was behaving erratically weeks all the way up until he was last seen alive.
-Blair had no drugs or alcohol found in his system.
-The security guard working nearby the motel where he was found recalls hearing a scream at around 3:30. He says it sounded like a woman.
-Prostitution was rampant in that area back then at a nearby truck stop.
-According to the new article, his rental car was towed to an auto repair shop from the gas station, so he was essentially stranded there until the next morning.

Knowing all of the above, and assuming that the security guard was correct in hearing the voice was a female, Blair could've went out to get something to eat sometime after getting a room. This map shows where he was staying (off of Cracker Barrel Lane), and the truck stop where he could've walked to get something to eat. This is where he's "accosted" or picked up by a prostitute (possibly with his/her pimp nearby), and they head out together to the construction site at Crosswood Blvd. I think they were in the middle of doing something sexual, and one of two things happened:

-Blair, due to his mental state at the time, freaked out and an argument escalated into a fight in which the person beat Blair to death.
-Blair was being set up by the prostitute and pimp, and while they tried robbing him, he fought back but was eventually over taken and killed.

I lean towards the 2nd theory more, because it could account for the scream heard by the security guard, why Blair's pants were found around his ankles, and also why none of the currency was taken. I don't think they anticipated on him fighting back. Of course, if it was a male prostitute that was picked up, I could definitely see scenario one happening too. I wonder if both male and female prostitutes frequented that truck stop.

Maybe the mother is lying because her husband is somehow connected to the murder.

Is it possible for the answer to be "a little from column A and a little from column B?" Maybe this whole journey was set off by some kind of mental breakdown and during all this, he met up with someone and due to said illness, either he freaked out and started a fight which left him dead or maybe because his ability to reason was compromised, he sought out sex and ignored some warning signs. As a result, he wound up dead. It is entirely possible that Blair Adams may have just had the worst possible luck ever.

Very good point there.

From the Knoxville News Sentinel Sept. 11th article:

Other calls to Edwards' home were answered by her husband, who grew angry, called chances of solving the case "remote as hell," and said, "We're not going to open that can of worms again."

I view that comment with great suspicion and that the husband knows more than he wants the authorities (or anyone else) to know.

Just watched this one - I tend not to pay too much attention to it given how bizarre it is, but I was curious as to what people's theories were. I read through all 5 pages of the thread here and given the location, I figure yeah, it was probably a prostitution encounter gone bad.

I don't buy the fact that he was running from someone/something based purely on the manner in which he was killed. Anyone who's got the skill and persistence to follow him back and forth across the country isn't going to be some amateur--yet given the cause of death, the way which his body was laid out and the fact all those valuables were still there in the open basically screams it.

Going back to the Knoxville Newspaper Article, I think the cop got it right. Although I'm going to differ and say instead of it being an out and out robbery, I think the prostitute was pulling some kinky stuff on Blair (explaining the anal/rectal damage), he got spooked (because it was *too kinky*) and either he refused to pay or was just creating so much of a commotion that he had to be silenced. So the pimp comes up, quick whacks him on the head, pushes him out of the car and runs over him on the way out of the lot.

Robbery could've been a motive, but to me, it seems like they (prostitute & pimp) were in too much of a rush and wanted to subdue/get rid of him too quick. I'd like to think even the worst/clumsiest of robbers would get away with at least *something*.........in this scenario though, they roughed him up, ran him over and then just plain ran.

There's a good YT series called Dark Matters that profiled this case. She's done a few cases that were on UM...I found that channel when searching for vids on the Brian Shaffer case (the most perplexing unsolved mystery I know of) and I am really enjoying the content

Well...maybe it's not that great info but it would explain a certain amount.

Clue: Think dates(in terms of time) and do some detective work.
