"From our sister station KPEL-FM: A grand jury has indicted Brandon Scott Lavergne on charges he kidnapped and murdered missing University of Louisiana at Lafayette student Mickey Shunick. But in a surprising development, the grand jury also indicted Lavergne on a separate first degree murder charge stemming from a case in July of 1999. "

By The Associated Press The Associated Press

The man arrested in the disappearance of a Lafayette college student in May was indicted Wednesday on charges of killing her and killing another woman 13 years ago. Brandon Scott Lavergne was indicted by a Lafayette Parish grand jury in the death of Mickey Shunick, who disappeared May 19, and that of Lisa Marie Pate in 1999. Pate, 35, was reported missing in June 1999. Her body was found three months later under large boards in a field in Acadia Parish near Church Point -- a town about 12 miles from Lawtell, Lavergne's home.

From your source, same year:

" Lavergne, 33, who served eight years for tying up, blindfolding and sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman in 1999, was arrested July 5 and booked with murder and aggravated kidnapping in Shunick's disappearance."

I believe he was sentenced and served from 2000 to 2008 for this sexual assault.

Edited to add from the nola cite:
" The vehicle was later found burned in Texas. Investigators also can place Lavergne in and around the remote, swampy area where Shunick's black Schwinn bicycle was found eight days after she disappeared."

Briefly, he was a person of interest at the time. Not enough to bring him in then. Lisa's body was found less than 12 miles from his home. Check out the links given above.

I couldn't even guess, Marcia.

This certainly should affect how we parent our kids.

We NEED to teach our kids the simple things~ SAFETY FIRST!!

Be aware of your surroundings at all times.

My kids thought I was too overprotective, as adults, raising their own kids, they can now see WHY I was the way I was. People need to WAKE UP. The issue of MISSING PEOPLE/CHILD ABDUCTIONS IS NOT GOING AWAY!!!

Shunick, Pate. Are there more?

No one expected District Attorney Mike Harson’s office to be ready with another case against Brandon Scott Lavergne Wednesday.

The office was successful in securing an aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder indictment against the 33-year-old sex offender in the case of missing UL Lafayette student Mickey Shunick, but ADA Keith Stutes and a team of law enforcement officials from multiple jurisdictions had another case to make, accusing Lavergne of the unsolved murder of Lafayette resident Lisa Pate.

Some Shunick family members would welcome plea deal if it meant closure

Posted: Friday, 20 July 2012 9:28AM

Chris Miller Reporting

Family members of Mickey Shunick, the UL-Lafayette student missing and presumed dead, are still anxious to find out just what happened to her. Mickey Shunick's sister has resigned herself to the fact that probably the only person who knows is the suspect indicted for her sister's murder.

Charlene Shunick says she doesn't like it that the only person who could tell them what happened may be the person authorities say murdered her sister. But even if it means allowing Brandon Lavergne to cut a deal, she says she must know.

Will more victims be found connected to the alleged killer of Mickey Shunick?


" Is it possible Brandon is responsible for his Uncle's death in 1999?

It is a little confusing to follow the below info, so keep in mind you may have to read it a couple of times. :-) AND once again, I am NOT saying that Brandon is responsible for any other killings and I am aware that he has not even had a trial yet, so he an alleged killer.

Claire Gianfala, (the woman that has been telling the media that BSL stalked her) Ellis Slocum and Kevin Atchinson were in a traffic accident on June 19, 1999 that resulted in Kevin Atchinson's death. Kevin Atchinson was suppose to be driving per the police report.

Lisa Pate's body was found under the floor boards of the house that Kevin Atchinson lived in, but please note that Lisa reportedly died of asphyxiation on July 3, 1999 and Kevin had died June 19, 1999. Lisa Pate, per police, was murdered by Brandon.

Leander "Black" Venable is Brandon's uncle. Black Venable, 65, was a butcher and he was found murdered in his home on March 1, 1999. I cannot find anything on this case and cannot verify it was a murder or not.

Nolan Lavergne is another of Brandon's uncles and is a police officer and Gary Lavergne is Nolan's son (Brandon's cousin) and write's books on serial killers.
Previous story - "

"
What a lot of people don't know about Lavergne is that he has has friends and relatives in Texas, and in particular, Highland, Texas which is in Harris County. Harris County and Montgomery County are right next to each other and according to a reader when I was writing up the Missing Texas Forty article, Harris and Montgomery Counties overlap.

I have just found out that Lainey Vasseur, Lavergne's ex wife is now Lainey Martinez and she lives in Highland, Texas. "

Map at story site.
A lot more info there.

State lays out plan in Shunick, Pate cases

8:39 AM, Aug 3, 2012

~Snipped~

In the document, Stutes believes that Shunick was forced to go to a location where Lavergne “forced her to engage in non-consensual acts, and inflicted physical injury and/or sexual abuse.” Then after he killed her, he moved her body and any evidence of the crime. He is also charged with obstruction of justice with the Shunick case.

The document also says that Pate was forced by Lavergne to go to an undisclosed area and to “engage in non-consensual acts, and/or inflicted physical injury, and/or sexual abuse upon Lisa Pate.” He killed her and moved the body “with the intent to distort the results of the criminal investigation.”

Suspect in Mickey Shunick's death may have moved body

7:47 PM, Aug. 4, 2012

LAFAYETTE — A sex offender charged in the deaths of a Louisiana college student and another woman may have moved their bodies, prosecutors said in court filings.

Excerpts:

A court filing says the “continued tampering” with Shunick’s body was meant to hamper the investigation.

Court documents filed Thursday reveal more about Pate’s case, noting that Lavergne met the woman in Lafayette Parish and either persuaded her to accompany him elsewhere or forced her to go with him. He then sexually abused Pate and killed her, according to the court filing.

I am terribly saddened that this is probably Mickey, but I am glad she has possibly been found. Still praying for her family.

I wonder if this was a targeted search area or if LE had a tip to search in that area since she was buried. Sad

Mickey Shunick's Body Believed Found in Remote Wooded Area

By MARK MOONEY
Aug. 7, 2012

The body of missing Louisiana college student Mickey Shunick was believed to have been found today buried in a remote wooded area near a small cemetery, police said.

"We believe strongly this will be Mickey Shunick, but we cannot confirm that at this time," said Cpl. Paul Mouton of the Lafayette Police Department.

~Snipped~

"We received credible information as far as where she could be located, off Route 10 in Evangeline Parish," the corporal said. "It was confirmed there was an area where a body was buried off the roadway and beyond a cemetery."

Mouton said police followed a private road past a small cemetery of about 30 headstones and into a wooded area to the spot where the body was buried. The burial site is about 45 miles from where Shunick disappeared.

Heartbreaking news, although since presumed dead, it must be comforting for her family that her body has been recovered.

Isn't this the area where anther's woman's body was found?
Near the outskirts of a church?
I know I posted a link on this sometime back.
IIRC, that woman had been found under a pile of boards on the edge of church property and near a cemetery. Not sure if this is the same woman he was charged with the death of in the second indictment ????

Edited to add:
The other woman is named Lisa Ann Pate.

Excellent info for time-line, alibi, etc. Reposting:

Mickey Shunick's Body Believed Found in Near Remote Cemetery
August08, 2012
Mouton said authorities were directed to the body on a tip, but did not specify where the very detailed tip came from.

"We received credible information as far as where she could be located, off Route 10 in Evangeline Parish," the corporal said. "It was confirmed there was an area where a body was buried off the roadway and beyond a cemetery."
PHOTO: Michaela Shunick, who goes by "Mickey," has been missing since May of 2012, and was last seen on a bicycle in Louisiana.

Mouton said police followed a private road past a small cemetery of about 30 headstones and into a wooded area to the spot where the body was buried. The burial site is about 45 miles from where Shunick disappeared. "

--- Who would have given this "tip" ?
IMO, it might be part of a future plea deal.

Praying authorities have not and will not offer this killer a plea deal. Dear GOD, please put up on the hearts of our judicial system to never offer any kind of leniency for the murders who take the lives of their victims and destroy the lives of their families and friends.

This makes me want to scream! He walked away from long-term incarceration on multiple occasions (if I recall correctly), and the possible charges were just awful. Mickey should have never been scoped by this pathetic scum, because he shouldn't have been on the streets. When, WHEN will enough be enough and sexual offenders will be kept AWAY from society - behind bars; where the public does not have to rely on the maybe-or-maybe-not-followed rules of their restricted freedom?!

As others have said, I cannot imagine what is worse - the frightful agony of not knowing where your loved one is, but still holding onto hope that they will be found alive; or knowing with final certainty the horrors that your loved one suffered in their last moments alive, and knowing you could not be there to protect them.

No happy outcome for Mickey's family, and I'm so sorry for what they are suffering right now. I pray peace and forgiveness will eventually find them, even though the road to it will be ugly and painful. I am also sorry for her killer's family; what shame and heartache they must feel - I cannot imagine. I also pray they can find it in their hearts to not desert Brandon, but to also not fail him by fighting for leniency, as leniency will never benefit a man like this. IF he can change, he will need his family. If they are to ever find peace, they will need to continue to love him, while never excusing what he has done.

So sad for everyone. Lives ruined all the way around. I hope that the state of Louisiana decides to make an example of Brandon, to others who think about doing what he's done. Swift, appropriate justice without a shred of leniency - send a message!

I too wonder who gave this "credible" information. I wonder if he told his attorney who then told police- for a plea deal, for instance~ take the DP off the table. (I don't know if they were considering it)

This is a double edged sword.

I'm glad for Mickey's family in that the finally know the truth, they can bring Mickey home and begin thier healing process.

On the other hand, I hate this outcome for anyone's family. Mickey had lots of friends in addition to a loving family.

The community, businesses, neighbors,volunteers, friends & family, have come together to lend their support in bringing Mickey home. I was impressed with the level of support from the people of LaFayette and the diligence of the police. Kudos to them.

Thoughts and prayers for Mickey's family.

What a damn joke!

Changing his drivers license wouldn't make him any less a sex offender.

Jerk.

Thanks for that info, justanopinion.

@Calypso I think I watched that sequence 5 times to let it sink in... (I really like that there is a designation on the drivers licence... makes it well known if a driver is stopped by LE to be extra vigilant... we would never get that here in Canada.. our government is too busy protecting the criminals to worry about protecting the innocent.) But yes I agree he is a Jerk..although my word was a bit different!! Very Happy

I think this is the most likely scenario. I've seen it many times before. One example is when John Gardner got charged with the death of Chelsea King, he told authorities where the remains of Amber Dubois could be found in exchange for taking the death penalty off the table.

Two articles on the same web page:
----------
Body Believed to be Mickey Shunick Taken to LSU FACES Lab
08/08/2012 06:12 PM by Steven Albritton

Snipped:

""My office did identify the body. We decided since she was in advance stages of decomposition, we felt it was best to send her to Louisiana FACES Lab," Talamo said.

"The FACES lab specializes in skeletal identification, 3-D Modeling, and also search and recovery. During the lab tests, the lab will be able to figure out almost everything that happened to the body."

And:

"We'll know if it's Mickey or not with in the next 24 to 48 hours," Talamo said.

Police not saying why Lavergne was out of jail
08/08/2012 05:28 PM by Erin Steuber

Snipped:

"KATC found records showing suspect Brandon Lavergne was checked-out of jail for nearly nine hours. In those same nine hours, police uncovered a body they believe is Mickey Shunick. The person accused of killing her, 33-year-old Brandon Scott Lavergne."

And:

"So where did Lavergne go while he was checked out? Police aren't talking. They won't say why he was checked out of jail or where he was taken."

Life on one with death penalty on the other. That works. Never let this depraved stalker out of prison. Never.
