Brandon Lavergne Transported To Angola
Only hours after pleading guilty to the murders of Lisa Pate and Mickey Shunick, Brandon Scott Lavergne is in the Louisiana State Penitentiary.
Officials in the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office confirmed deputies transported Lavergne to Angola shortly after this morning's hearing. According to the Louisiana Automated Victims' Notification System, Lavergne was released into the state's custody at 1:27 P. M.
It has not yet been determined if he will be placed in solitary confinement or with the general population.
That decision is based upon several factors including his demeanor upon arrival.
Lavergne is going to jail for life for the first-degree murders of Lisa Pate and Mickey Shunick but new developments are being reported that it’s believed he may have killed yet another girl.
Earlier this week, KPEL NewsRadio in Lafayette reported that yet another case of a missing girl could possibly be tied to Lavergne. Ali Lowitzer, a 16-year-old from Texas, went missing in April 2010. The family believes Lavergne could be involved.
