Mickey Shunick was kidnapped and murdered according to the arrest information regarding the latest update in her case. A man by the name of Brandon Scott Lavergne, who is a registered sex offender, was arrested just hours ago. The St. Landry Parish man is also the owner of a white Chevy Z-71Â—not a coincidence at all, it seems.
This is a heartbreaking update in the case of this high profile missing woman, but at least the wheels of justice are now beginning to turn. Police have said nothing about the remains of the missing Anthropology major, but they have charged Brandon Scott Lavergne with kidnapping and murder associated with her disappearance.
Today is a heartbreaking day for the friends and family of Mickey Shunick, but it's time to move forward and hope that justice will be served against the man responsible. To see the man's mug shot and other information, click this link.
