when john white arrived at roanoke it was deserted. what i think happened was that the native american's killed the colonists, because what if the colonists had angered them and didn't treat them right. also when they returned they found croatoan carved on a tree. the only thing that was found when people returned was a body that was scattered almost as if the native american's where trying to hide the body
