A body was found, yesterday. The body was buried in a deep grave in a wooded area near a cemetery over 100 years old. The cemetery is in Evangeline Parish. It was just confirmed that it is Mickey Shunick. http://www.klfy.com/story/19218560/search-for-shunick-body-in-evangline-parish Mickey disappeared on May 19. I posted about it in May.
I'm in tears. My thoughts and prayers are with Mickey's family and friends. I know what it is like to lose a family member to a violent crime. My first cousin, Debbie, was murdered. Sadly, they never found her killer. Thankfully, the police have a suspect in Mickey's case. His name is Brandon Lavergne and he is in custody. They made the arrest before Mickey's body was found. He was indicted on two counts of first degree murder. One for Mickey and one for Lisa Pate (Lisa's body was found in 1999). There is speculation that Brandon told police where to find Mickey's body, however this has not been confirmed. We will know more when the police hold a conference. I pray justice is served and he remains in prison for the rest of his life.

Rest in Peace, Mickey. Rest in Peace, Lisa.
UPDATE: Brandon Scott Lavergne plead guilty to the murders of Lisa Pate and Mickey Shunick. He will serve life in prison with no chance of parole.
