I think he attempted to buy drugs from someone and him acting so insane set the dealer off, probably wondering if he was a cop trying to set him up. No witnesses at that moment so just kill him and take off. The guy was obviously going crazy, probably turning schizophrenic over the last few years. The whole trip to random places I don't believe is related to the actual murder in itself other than he was probably acting crazy to whoever killed him and took a severe beating with a bat. I just think in the end it's rather simple.

A drug deal gone wrong is also possible, but it wouldn't explain his pants being pulled down, his anus being penetrated, or the fact that none of his valuables were taken from him.

I think it falls into line with he was acting insane. Dropping his pants in front of a dealer on his own. The culprit was enraged and beat him and as he was on the ground the other end of the bat or the club was forced into him basically to humiliate him for having humiliated them. After the attack I think he laid down and HE put his shoe under his head as he lay there because he couldn't walk away. I'm sure he screamed and in a panic the attacker took off without bothering to check what he had on him. I think Blair himself rifled through his clothes and tossed the money around in his agony. Of course I'm not saying this IS what happened, but I've come to learn that what seem to be the biggest mysteries tend to sometimes end up being answered more simply. As in the Wheeler murder. Bob Bean, the Brother, ex wife etc, turned out none of that had any bearing on the actual crime.

Another good point here is that he may have been knocked over by someone trying to leave the scene fast, one cop thought his injuries were consistent with a car hitting him. So a hit and run

In above article the cops didn't know when anus injury happened, also people in shock and bleeding can do strange things like take their own pants down or use a sock as a pillow as he did. They feel too hot when in shock.

Cops in the segment said his pants were pulled down in a position to where they believed it was done by someone other than Blair.

Again, I think they're over-thinking on this one. The guy was no doubt going more insane every day of his life. The weirdest aspects of this case I think are directly the result of that.

Why couldn't Blair have been attacked by a male prostitute?

I don't know of anyone making a case that he couldn't have been. Every theory isn't the gospel, but like all the rest, a male prostitute is just as possible as anything.

I know that currency was scattered around Blair's body, but was it ever confirmed that none of the money was missing? Isn't it possible that after killing him, his killer/s rifled through his belongings, took some American currency and saw the Canadian and German currency and then took off? Whoever killed him, if robbery was the motive, would have wanted to leave the area ASAP. Which could explain why the small pack with jewelry was overlooked.

One thing I never got was his Toyota key, how did that key disappear then reappear. I fully believe he was being followed and he was likely killed by someone out to get him, I can’t answer if it had to do with prostitution or some love triangle gone bad

He was traveling to the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, only a 3 hour or so drive from where he was killed. He likely went out looking for drugs or prostitutes and got into an argument.

It's not unheard-of putting a key and a pocket or secret pocket and forgetting it's there.

I think it's kind of mainly been solved.

Totally impractical to follow someone over that distance when they are on and off flights and hiring rental cars etc.

I wouldn’t be shocked if it had to do with that. Though I do think this was planned.

What always got me was how they couldn’t find the Toyota key, the key disappeared then re-appears later.

i think that avid viewers of unsolved mysteries 99% of time can watch these segments, maybe even investigate a little, talk on these forums and then come to some kind of theory, theres that 1% of segments that don't make sense no matter how you look at them. every theory contradicts itself. and this case is one of them.

There are so many things to make you think that blair had a mental ilness, schizophrenia that would make him paranoid, but his paranoia was justified, because he was killed. and not just killed but killed in a way that was more like a hit, he had a relatively big amount of money on him and jewelry, none of which were touched.

The gay angle always seemed logical, especially because of how he was found, but it's said he had a "string of girlfriends" and even booked a flight that he didn't use, to go and see a girl. the drug angel too, could explain his paranoia and why someone was out to get him...but drug dealers would i assume take the money.

what is easy to mistake as schizophrenia could just be someone acting very very irrational due to fear. but a reasonable explaination could be a mixture of both these things. maybe he was schizophrenia and paranoid, taking him on an huge crazy journey. while in knoxville his mental health problems maybe him rub someone the wrong way, a someone who had no problem with killing him.

Agreed. This case ranks right up there with Aieleen Conway in terms of how bizarre it is. Although, unlike Conway, Blair's death is a clear cut case of murder.
