Part of the video has the main explaining that the body was that of a “biker dude” who got in a fight with him at a bar in Sneads Ferry. He goes into detail about how they put the body in a truck, went on base and eventually buried him “10 feet under” in the woods.
The man even said they nearly got caught by a Provost Marshal Officer.
