|“||They made me.||”|
Little is known about Stafford, other than he attended Mecklinburg State University and was a member of the Beta Sigma Delta fraternity. He also seemed to know Adam Richmond and Trevor Burkett. On February 16, 2013, the three attended a fraternity party, where they decided to rape a party guest, Lauryn-Anne Harrison. During the attack, Stafford was reluctant to go along with it, later citing that he was pressured into doing it. After it was done, Richmond later forced Lauryn-Anne to drink vodka so then she could be discredited for being drunk once she reported the rape. The three then dumped her in front of her home, where she was later discovered by her sister Sheila. Lauryn-Anne later fell into a coma as a result of the attack, but Michael Smith, who coached Richmond and Burkett on the college football team, covered up the details of her rape with the help of Edward Calder.
What Happens in Mecklinburg
On April 9, 2014, over one year after the attack, Richmond and Burkett were both abducted by a vengeful Sheila. After tracing the connection between Lauryn-Anne and the crimes, the BAU interrogate him, and he opens up to them about the details of the attack and telling them of his reluctance in doing so. He has been presumably incarcerated afterwards, but that cannot be concretely stated due to the cooperation he displayed to the BAU, as well as his admitted reluctance in the crime.
Because Stafford raped only one person, the term "M.O." may be somewhat misused. When he attacked Lauryn-Anne Harrison, he raped her alongside Richmond and Burkett.
No profile of Stafford was made by the BAU, since they were more focused on Sheila.
