Rio De Janiero
I do think he and his friends were robbed, but I also think that they were themselves doing something illegal or very questionable (buying dope?), and that explains their contradictory statements and all the other loose ends.
It’s looking more and more like they made the whole thing up. If that’s the case, then I have perhaps another reason why they did. They were picking up hoes, and from what I understand, Lochte already has a real HPOA girlfriend. Though if it was anything like that, she won’t be his girlfriend for much longer.
