Dateline NBC just aired a one hour special on the abduction and murder of Mickey Shunick from Lafayette Louisiana.
In the show, never before seen video footage was aired of Brandon Scott Lavergne confessing to the murder of Mickey Shunick and what happened that terrible night. Here is that video.
KPEL Newsradio is reporting that Brandon Scott Lavergne, the suspect in the murder of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick, was checked out of jail yesterday at roughly the same time police were discovering the body they believe is hers.
After a tense afternoon of back-and-forth in the media, Lafayette's Police Chief Jim Craft confirmed to multiple media outlets that officials believe they have found the body of missing UL-Lafayette student Mickey Shunick, who has been missing since May.
As we reported last week, Brandon Lavergne was indicted by a grand jury in Lafayette for the first degree murder of the still-missing Mickey Shunick.
But in a shocking twist in the case, Lavergne was also charged with the first degree murder of Lisa Pate, an Acadia Parish woman who was found dead in 1999. Now the Lafayette Parish District attorney is saying that both cases may be tried together.
