Facebook

Officials in Bay St. Louis, Miss., found a missing torso, but were able to definitively say that it is NOT that of missing UL-Lafayette student Mickey Shunick.

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) – Officials in Lafayette, LA say a woman’s torso found washed up on the beach in Bay St. Louis is not that of missing woman Mickey Shunick.

Officials had been in contact with investigators in Bay St. Louis since the body was discovered Thursday. There were several body piercings found on the torso, but Corporal Kyle Soriez with the Lafayette Police Department said they do not match those of Mickey Shunick.

An autopsy was underway Friday morning on the remains. Officials hope to have an identity later today.

Hancock County authorities said the torso appears to be that of a white female in her late teens or early 20s. They aren’t sure if the limbs were intentionally removed. The body was stabbed once in the chest, and had three piercings, one in each nipple and one in the navel.

The torso was found near Bay Oaks Drive in Bay St. Louis where crews are working on the county’s beach replenishment project.

Three young women from the Gulf South area are currently missing: Mickey Shunick from Lafayette, Jaren Lockhart from New Orleans and Brittany Nicole Wood from Alabama.
