alstl...I believe it was a lowlife living at the hotel. There were several likely characters I saw during the three days I stayed there. Just keeping this on the front page for awhile...I looked up Red Roof Inn Lafayette on google maps. Two interstates run through Lafayette LA. High school just down the street from the hotel.
If it was stolen by local kids it will probably show up at a Lafayette pawn shop or pool hall for sale. If it was stolen by someone staying at the same hotel it could be somewhere between Texas, the East coast and Canada.
