Schantz may not have met with foul play at all, but may have fallen into the water after a night of drinking on Bourbon Street.

Michael Schantz said that one video showed his father “stumbling” and “grasping for a wall” as he made his way to the dock.

“[In the video] he walks down near the water and there is a gate that he opens,” the son said. “I’m sure he just wanted to go reflect or look at the boat.”

“There is only one way for him to come back and the tape never shows him coming back,” he said.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that a video camera spotted Schantz walking up the narrow gangplank of the Natchez, and then suddenly disappear.
