Caly, it was brought to my attention yesterday that a guy, by the name of Jordan Hamlett, claiming to be with Averlock Investigations, was a guest on the Websleuth's Radio Show on Sunday, 6/17/12.

He allegedly claims to be pro-bono and allegedly claims he has spoken to Mickey Shunick's mother and has her "approval" to investigate Mickey's disappearance.

It appears that may not be the case per your post using Charlene Shunick's statement.
Do you have a Link to Charlene's statement? Was that statement posted on one of her Facebook pages?

This is a Link to the aforementioned radio show:

Nancy Shunick said, "We look for you everyday. Your friends look for you everyday. Hundreds and thousands of strangers have come from all over the state, from surrounding states, from all across the country. They've looked for you on foot, on atv, on horses, with dogs, with boats, and we will keep looking until we find you. Stay calm, stay strong, stay smart, and we will not stop looking."

Per Charlene Shunick~

In regards to Jordan Hamlett, the Private Investigator from Averlock Investigators: it has come to our attention that he has invented a relationship with the family and his role in the investigation is impeding the investigation and risking my sister's life and safe return. He has been claiming to have received a donation to begin working on the case, but is in fact working pro bono and using the situation to get his name out there. Our family has begged him to cease his active role in the investigation and is asking, as always, that all tips and leads be reported to the tipline 3372918633 and the family's PI 3372350270. My mother has also asked him to give all tips that he has to the detectives as well as the PI.

Divers search Whiskey Bay area

11:00 PM, Jun 20, 2012

The Advertiser - Lafayette, LA

Divers on Wednesday searched the Whiskey Bay area, but police would not confirm whether the activity was linked to the case of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick, who went missing a month ago.

Instead, Cpl. Kyle Soriez, a spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, said there are no developments in the disappearance of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette student.

Coping with the trauma of Mickey's disappearance

12:48 AM, Jun 24, 2012

Written by Megan Wyatt
The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA

There is no "normal" when it comes to coping with the loss a loved one. There is even less normalcy when that loved one is missing, when family and friends have no clues about his or her whereabouts, or whether the person is dead or alive.

Since Mickey Shunick's mysterious May 19 disappearance, her friends and family have kept optimistic, openly expressing their belief that Shunick is still alive. Over a month later, some of that enthusiasm has waned, but the optimism remains.

Still no answers in Shunick case

12:48 AM, Jun 24, 2012

Written by Megan Wyatt
The Daily Advertiser
Lafayette, LA


At the corner of South College and Johnston streets, a wrinkled, torn missing-person flier clung to a utility pole Tuesday, the one-month anniversary of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick's mysterious disappearance.

In one month, Shunick missed three major celebrations: her brother's graduation from high school, her own 22nd birthday and Father's Day.

Shunick's disappearance attracted national media attention, led to one of the largest investigations in Lafayette Police Department history and brought the community together in a way Shunick's sister, Charlie, compares to the public reaction to Hurricane Katrina.

I remember hearing that a white truck fitting the description of the one in the videos was found abandoned at a hotel parking lot in Texas. Was anything ever linked to that truck and Mickey?

Calypso, this guy reaks of creepy, interjecting himself into the case & imposing on Mickey's family when her family is so desperate to find her. I wonder if this guy has been vetted by LE.

The plight of families looking for loved one's is always heartbreaking, still praying & hoping for Mickey's safe return.

I don't recall any mainstream media articles that are posted on this thread referencing a white truck fitting the description of the one in the videos being found at a hotel parking lot in Texas.

I think it is nothing more than a rumor.

Per the Lafayette Police Department - LA, there has been no press release indicating that they are no longer looking for the newer model white Z-71.

Latest Update Volunteers React To Arrest in Shunick Case

07/05/2012 10:59 PM by Steven Albritton

It was a day that started out like any other day at the Mickey Shunick Volunteer Center. That all changed when news came out that an arrest had been made in the case.

"This is a big day for us. This has been a long 47 days," Volunteer Margaret Bearb said.

People were getting the news through Facebook, phone calls and text messages. Bearb placed a prayer in a box a couple of days ago and attributes this news partially to prayer.

"That was I think the biggest moment. That feeling today when I got that phone call was because that petition was in there and it came true," Bearb said.

"Police reportedly searched the home of Brandon Scott Lavergne earlier today confirmed Lavergne owns a white 2011 Chevrolet Silverado.

KPEL also interviewed Shunick’s father Tom, who told them the police had known about Lavergne “for some time.”

State of Louisiana - Registered Sex Offenders

Brandon Scott Lavergne

Per the official State of Louisiana site which eventually led me to the St. Landry Parish site, info can not be copy and pasted.

You will probably have to agree to their terms and then type in Brandon Lavergne's name to access info provided which includes:

Details
Warrants
Other Known Addresses
Vehicles


Lavergne is classified as a Tier 3 offender as reported by the media.

The last verification date is 5/28/12.

Most recent address is listed as:

143 Elaine Lane
Church Point, LA 70525

This info has been in media reports and the address is in the Arrest Affidavit.

http://www.katc.com/files/Lavergne%20affidavit.pdf

According to this 3 page pdf doc, suspect WAS DEPOSED on MAY 19th!!!
CORRECTION: NOT DEPOSED ON THIS DATE. MY ERROR.

Looking at the wording, is it being ascertained by the detective that in the detective's belief the suspect committed the crimes of murder and aggravated kidnapping OR is it being affirmed the suspect stated HE DID THESE THINGS?

I am asking if there was a confession on the part of the suspect?

Clipped--
" The defendant did willfully, and unlawfully commit the crime of First Degree Murder."

EDITED: MY ERROR. As many times as I read that before I first posted this and now I see my own error. According to the pdf, the suspect was NOT deposed on May 19th; the charges allege the crime occurred on May 19th! Wow. That clears up a lot for me.
Thank you Ann for if you had not responded I would not have read the pdf for the nth time and found my error in thinking.

Freckles (12:55 a.m.), instead of speculating, I prefer to wait until the official Lafayette Police Department "Press Conference" tomorrow.

One thing we know for certain, per LPD as this case unfolded, Mickey Shunick went missing on 5/19/12.

This is fantastic news that an arrest has been made, I am really surprised as I thought they might never find the person that abducted her. I am terribly sadden to read Mickey is deceased, I hope all the information comes out in her case.

Mickey, so young, so adventurous, Gone too soon. Prayers for her family tonight, their worst nightmare has come true.

These may be repeats.

This shows the area where he may have been arrested:
" Thursday LPD and Saint Landry Parish Sherriff Deputies executed a search warrant of Brandon Scott Lavergne's residence on the 100 block of Elaine Lane in the Swords area. "

Several additional vids seen here:
http://www.klfy.com/story/18959578/arrest-made-in

A goggle map of the area where possible arrest was made:

New video footage lead to the arrest according to this link:http://www.theadvertiser.com/article/20120705/BREAKING_NEWS04/120705038/Arrest-made-Mickey-Shunick-case

Clipped-
" Early Thursday, Lafayette police officer Kyle Manceaux obtained surveillance video footage from The Daily Advertiser. The footage included views of Bertrand Drive between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. on May 19. The police department would not confirm whether the footage was related to the arrest."

I am sorry I wasn't clear. Not speculating but trying to understand the meaning of the words used on the affidavit for arrest. Hoping someone might be able to explain what I seem to be missing. I am not so impatient I can not wait til tomorrow. :)

Freckles, Detective Stephen N. Bajet was sworn in by Judge Marilyn C. Castle, 15th District Judicial Court, and stated or affirmed that Brandon Scott Lavergne, white male, DOB 1/8/1979 willfully and unlawfully commit the crime of First Degree Murder, etc. (Not verbatim). It does not mean that Bajet interviewed Lavergne on 5/19/12.

I don't seem to understand what you don't understand about this Affidavit. Sorry.

Alexandria Town Talk - Alexandria, LA -- 2:44 AM, Jul 6, 2012

Arrest made in case of missing Lafayette student Mickey Shunick


Snipped:

Shunick family members did not return calls Thursday evening, but Shunick's sister, Charlie Shunick, responded via text messages.

"We are relieved that the police have made an arrest," she wrote. "The circumstances are pretty distressing. If she is gone, it is a void in the fabric of the world and a devastating blow to our family."


Snipped:

According to Louisiana law, first-degree murder includes "the killing of a human being" when the offender has "specific intent to kill or to inflict great bodily harm and is engaged in the perpetration of aggravated kidnapping."

The law defines aggravated kidnapping as "the forcible seizing and carrying of any person from one place to another; or the enticing or persuading of any person to go from one place to another; or the imprisoning or forcible secreting of any person."

If a district attorney seeks a capital verdict in a first-degree murder case, the crime can come with a sentence of death or life in prison.

Opelousas Daily World - Opelousas, LA -- 1:15 AM, Jul 6, 2012

Police search home in Shunick case

Snipped:

That was what neighbors remembered most about him.

"I got a sex offender letter about him, but I don't know him. He's been living there for two or three years and I see him come and go on the weekends," neighbor Shirley said. Shirley declined to give her last name, because she said she feared for her family.

She said police arrived that afternoon and the sheriff told her that they were investigating an "accident that happened in Lafayette," and that she should not be scared.

Still, Shirley worried, especially because Lavergne and the woman who often lived with him seemed so unassuming and quiet.

"They mostly stick to themselves," she said. "He does drive a white truck."


Snipped:

Josh Miller, a two-year resident of the area, pulled up to the crime scene on his ATV and looked, not knowing what to make of the situation.

"We drive down this road to go to the highway and everybody seems really nice down here. It's really quiet," Miller said. "I know they have a lot of woods back here and a bayou. You just wouldn't expect someone who lives here to be involved."

Two page article.

Perhaps a "local" newspaper because Opelousas is near the area that was searched by LE.
