Story is here: Brandon Scott Lavergne Pleads Guilty To Murder Of Mickey Shunick
Even though this is more of a local story it did get some national attention(much appreciated by the way). This "man's" arrest has forced multiple cold murder cases to be opened, dating back to the late 1990s. If you have a weak stomach I advise you NOT to read Lavernge's recall of the Shunick murder, it was brutal and graphic. This coward only came around to produce the last victim's remains to spare his own worthless life. This POS is also now a suspect in a Texas dissappearance as well, god knows how many people he has hurt, thank you national community for the attention, and may justice be done.
The recount is here, but again if you don't want to be repulsed skip this part.
According to the account in court, Brandon Scott Lavergne followed Mickey into a residential area near Blackham Coliseum, where he hit the back of her bike with his truck and then forced her into the truck with him. She grabbed her cell phone to call 9-1-1 and Lavergne threatened her with his knife.
She sprayed him with mace that she carried with her and took the knife from Lavergne. Shunick then stabbed him, but Lavergne grabbed the knife by the blade and stabbed her four times, causing her to pass out. Thinking she was dead, he took her to a field where he intended to dump her body. She then came to and stabbed Lavergne several times. He then took a gun that he had in the truck and fired it once into her head, killing her.
After her death, he took her backpack and other materials and burned them. He then dumped her body and left for the New Orleans area, dumping her bike in the Whiskey Bay area on his way through. After pictures of the truck were released, he took the truck to Texas and burned it, buying a new truck after that.
