Did Mickey Shunick try to fight off the man allegedly responsible for her abduction and presumed death? That appears to be the sentiments conveyed by media source and investigators on this case now that some shocking details have risen in the story. Brandon Scott Lavergne was reportedly treated for several cuts and stab wounds after the disappearance of the Louisiana anthropology student. Could his hospital visit have anything to do with the disappearance of this young woman?
Brandon Scott Lavergne was treated for stab wounds to his chest, neck, back and hand at an emergency room 140 miles away from the point where Michaela "Mickey" Shunick was last seen. This treatment was later in the day, hours after the woman vanished. When police interviewed him regarding these injuries and the disappearance of the young woman, he was reportedly uncooperative. This lack of cooperation says a lot, to be honest.
Mickey Shunick was a healthy-looking young woman who probably knew a thing or two about self defense. It's probably safe to say that these wounds may have been afflicted by the missing anthropology major whilst in a struggle for her life.
Knowing that he was treated 140 miles away either shows that he got the hell out of dodge to avoid a connection to her disappearance, or this is the area in which he disposed of her remains. Hopefully police intend on checking many areas between the point of alleged abduction and the hospital where he was treated.
