I am so glad they made an arrest and I hope he at least tells where her body is located. I don't think it will happen because he has already been in the system and I am sure the first thing he did was ask for an attorney.

It is said to say but women and children cannot be alone in the streets because there are people who will hunt them down to do harm. So so sad, I hope they are able to return her body to her family. Sad

Sheriff: Man booked in missing Louisiana student case

By Amanda McElfresh and Tina Marie Macias, The (Lafayette, La.) Daily



LAFAYETTE, La. -- A registered sex offender has been charged in the disappearance and death of a 21-year-old student missing since May 19.

On Thursday, police here charged Brandon Scott Lavergne, 33, with aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder in connection with the disappearance of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick, last seen as she rode her bicycle home from a friend's house at a little before 2 a.m. on a late spring Saturday.

"We are relieved that the police have made an arrest," Shunick's sister, Charlie Shunick, said via text message. "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."

Murder charge in Mickey Shunick case

July 6, 2012

(VIDEO)

~Snipped~

Officials at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center said Brandon Lavergne, 33, is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping.

During a preliminary hearing Friday morning via video conference, a judge assigned him a public defender after Lavergne told him he couldn't afford an attorney "for a case like this."

The judge also ordered he be placed in critical care in the jail to protect him from other prisoners.

Lavergne was identified as the driver on the white truck seen following Mickey. His white truck was at Whisky Bay where her bike was found. Police say his truck was found burned in San Jacinto County Texas. It was reported stolen in Montgomery County, Texas. When arrested yesterday he was in a new white truck. He has asked for a lawyer and is not cooperating. Police will not say why they believe Mickey is dead. Evidence indicates her bike was hit from behind.

More details provided on the arrest in the Mickey Shunick case

POSTED: Friday, July 6, 2012 - 12:30pm
UPDATED: Friday, July 6, 2012 - 1:43pm

“I must caution all of you that although an arrest has been made in this case, much work is left to be done,” Chief Craft said. “On May 19 the Shunick family reported Mickey missing… On May 25 video evidence was recovered from a Lafayette government building that captured Mickey on her bike.

“Several vehicles were also captured on the video and broadcast to the public. All the vehicles of interest were ruled out except for a white, Chevrolet Z 71 pickup truck. The driver, as well as the vehicle, was never identified, nor did anyone come forward.

“On May 26, Mickey’s bike was located under the Whiskey Bay Bridge with damage to rear tire, consistent with being struck by a vehicle.

“On June 14, investigators received information from a concerned citizen regarding a white Z 71 pickup that may be involved in Mickey’s disappearance. The vehicle in question was registered to Brandon Lavergne.

Wow! June 14th is when they apparently got the break they were hoping for.
I gather there were no prints usable from the bike?
I am sure this man has been printed before.

Good police work!

Although this has nothing to do with the Mickey Shunick case or Brandon Lavergne, I think it is very interesting and educational.

For those of us who do not live in LA, it will help us understand the system. It is recommended by the Louisiana Public Defender Board on their website and Linked to NOLA.com which is the online version of the Times-Picayune (a newspaper in New Orleans, LA).

Times-Picayune Releases Eight-Part Prison Series

On Sunday, May 20, 2012, the Times-Picayune concluded an eight-part series on incarceration in Louisiana, entitled, 'Louisiana Incarcerated: How we built the world's prison capital.' Cindy Chang, Special Projects Reporter for the Times-Picayune, spent more than a year in prisons around the state, including major metropolitan facilities, rural prisons, and the State Penitentiary at Angola.

If this guy brought his truck to Texas and burned it, then Micky could be anywhere from Lafayette to wear his truck was burned. She could have also been in the truck when he set it on fire. I hope that there is a way they can check if a body was there when he set it on fire.

Scott Lavergne's arrest in Mickey Shunick case stuns hometown

4:07 PM, Jul. 8, 2012

CHURCH POINT — The streets of the Acadia Parish town where Brandon Scott Lavergne grew up were quiet Saturday morning, just two days after the former Church Point resident was charged with the murder and aggravated kidnapping of Mickey Shunick.

This quiet community of about 4,500 residents on the banks of the Plaquemine Brule has been abuzz since news spread that Lavergne, 33, of nearby Swords, had been charged with first degree murder in the high-profile case of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette student, who disappeared May 19. The last image of her was caught on surveillance video in downtown Lafayette at about 2 a.m., followed by images of a white pickup truck that police say belongs to, and was driven by, Lavergne.

Excuse my sarcasm but were the residents of this small town stunned when he was found guilty and placed on a LIFE TIME sexual abuser list? Were they more stunned now than then? IMO, maybe a select group of person the media interviewed were "surprised" but if the reporters looked under a few more rocks, they would not have found so many were surprised as they were expecting this.

It is not unusual for a sex predator who is caught to carefully choose his next victim and end the life of that person so they can't tell. That is reality. He already has been found to be a sex predator; is he involved in the death and cover up of Mickey? IF he did not sexually abuse her, why hide a body? Why try to destroy evidence? That points to more ominous activities.

Solid link provided by J4A.

IMO, the truck MAY have been burnt in an attempt to destroy evidence AFTER info was released re damage on the vehicle that was seen in the vid. (Don't recall where the damage was reported. Was it seen in EACH of the vids PD have or not seen in an early vid and seen in a later vid indicating an accident in the ensuing time between the two vids? Dunno.)

Mickey Shunick's father talks about Lavergne's arrest

Updated: Jul 09, 2012 7:25 PM EDT
By Cheryl Mercedes

~Snipped~

"It was burned somewhere in Texas. Somehow he got there and got back. Did he ride with someone? Did he walk back? How did he get back?" said Tom.

Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft would not comment on similar questions at Friday's news conference. Tom says he has told detectives to keep any new developments in the case to themselves. He says he just wants to know when his daughter is found.

Neighbors shocked by arrest; mom apologizes

By Marsha Sills

Baton Rouge, LA

July 10, 2012


LAWTELL — Residents of this rural community west of the St. Landry Parish seat of Opelousas expressed shock Saturday that a break in the investigation of the May 19 disappearance of Mickey Shunick came from their own backyard.


Snipped:

Lavergne’s mother said she, too, was shocked by the allegations against her son.

“I would like to offer my condolences to the Shunick family,” Cynthia Lavergne said Saturday in a statement to KATC-TV. “I also would like to have closure. I know ‘I’m sorry’ is never enough. However, it is all I have to offer at this moment. I am learning about this case as everyone else is, one newscast at a time, one Facebook post at a time, and one phone call at a time.”

The following article is from 7/6/12. It includes a concise Live Blog regarding the Press Conference by Lafayette Police Department on 7/6/12.

Also, before rumors get started, Mickey Shunick was NOT seen getting in the white truck believed to be Lavergne's in the surveillance tapes. Please see Editor's Note below (EDIT):

UPDATE: Lafayette Police Say Brandon Scott Lavergne Thought to Be Mickey Shunick’s Killer, Was ‘Looking for Someone to Victimize’

By: Scott Lewis
Cajun Radio 1470/1290 AM

findmickeynow.com


While they stopped short of saying so, Lafayette Police made it clear that it is believed that Mickey Shunick is dead, and the man suspected of killing her — Brandon Scott Lavergne — was “looking for someone to victimize” when he picked her up. When asked directly if there were any clues as to Shunick’s final resting place, Lafayette’s police chief replied: “No.”

Snipped:

[EDIT: Previous versions of this story stated that the video showed Mickey getting into the Chevy truck. This was an error from an older version of the story that had not been properly updated. I deeply apologize for the error and any misunderstandings it may have caused.]

Shunick searches continue after arrest

11:00 PM, Jul 9, 2012

Written by Megan Wyatt
The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA


Efforts to bring Mickey Shunick home are continuing within Louisiana and outside the state's borders even after Thursday's arrest of Brandon Scott Lavergne in the case of the missing college student, a Lafayette investigator said.

Police are conducting both out-of-state and local searches for Shunick, said private investigator John Abdella, who has been working with police on the case since its beginning.


Snipped:

Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman with the Lafayette Police Department, said he is not aware of any out-of-state searches but did say the task force is searching for Shunick in areas that Lavergne "used or had knowledge of." Mouton also said Monday that investigators had searched Lavergne's home and the surrounding area, using dogs to cover much of the vacant territory near the property.

I'm sure there are many ways to read this, but she doesn't convey any messages that indicates she thinks her son is innocent.

Did the suspect/perp know people in San Jacinto vicinity?

Edited to add:
Did he file a stolen vehicle report with local LE?
Did he file with an insurance company for costs of his destroyed truck?

From the articles I read on his previous history - this guy spent 8 out of a 10 yr max sentence trying to get his sentence overruled. He was described as being a self-learned lawyer. Eight years and he kept fighting the system.

This guy has been in prison 8 yrs and knows the law well enough to know how to evade it. He knew what he was doing driving to Texas and burning that car and dumping the bike. They won't find any body or evidence anywhere near his house. He's not going to play nice with cops. They won't budge anything out of him. I'm so glad to hear the family has hired a private detective. It's exactly what I'd do because police just don't have enough resources and don't have a solid track record of effectively managing searches beyond state borders. A lot of red tape. I'd hire a P.I. as well. I hope they find her and nail this SOB for good this time.
