    The Jennings victims all had something in common, they were all considered to have "high risk lifestyles"--hard core drugs and whatnot. Mickey doesn't fit that profile.

    most likely not connected

    Lafayette Police do not see any possible links between the disappearance more than a week ago of 22-year-old UL student Mickey Shunick and a case in Bloomington, Ind., that bears some similarities. A police spokesman in Lafayette has confirmed that investigators in Indiana have contacted the LPD concerning the disappearance a year ago of 20-year-old Lauren Spierer, who vanished after a night on the town.

    The cases bear striking — if coincidental similarities: each involves the disappearance of a young, attractive, blond coed, and in each case a white pickup truck was spotted in surveillance video. But, Cpl. Paul Mouton of the LPD tells a Baton Rouge television station, that’s where the similarities appear to end.

    Certainly! "My pleasure." And, re: Cpl. Mouton's statement from your link, I'm nodding my head in agreement. Let's not waste time looking at cases nine hours and more away. It's too early for that, and intensive investigation in Lafayette and the surrounding area must be done before it's too late.

    I might have missed this, but how far is to where the bike was found to the last sighting of Mickey that night?

    and, is where the bike was found the same direction that white truck was last seeing traveling?

    The Bloomington Police Department said that, from their perspective, "there is nothing to discuss."

    "Any speculation about a 'connection' has been manufactured by the media and not by us," Capt. Joe Qualters of the Bloomington Police Department told ABCNews.com in an email.

    Qualters said the Bloomington police simply made an "inquiry" about Shunick's case because it seemed the "appropriate thing to do."

    About 30 miles on the interstate.

    Some have indicated Mickey might of been wanting to buy drugs and that's why she went over to that side of town perhaps. It's also said she was hungover from partying and booze from the night before... Seems pretty "high risk" if you ask me.

    I find it odd how a killer in Jennings, Louisiana is able to get away with 8 murders in a town of under 11,000. Talk about high crime rate and obviously LE at least in that area isn't doing a good enough job...

    Someone else could have come along and taped some flyers up after the people who where there dropped them on the ground. It doesn't necessarily mean the perp was right there when everyone else was.

    For what it's worth, I've been to Artmosphere a couple times, and if you're looking to get weed, it would be a lot easier and safer to get it from someone there. I would venture to say that most of the people who go there either have some or know someone there who does. I don't think Mickey was meeting somebody to "broker a deal" that night (excuse the parlance, I have no idea what people who are looking to get drugs call it lol).

    Well, except for the fact that when I see his moniker, I start singing "And you know I like my chicken fried, a cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right and the radiieeoooo ooooonnnn."

    Supposedly they weren't into anything hardcore, just pot. The women from Jennings definitely lived a different lifestyle than Mickey.

    By "high risk" they mean prostitution, something Mickey was absolutely not involved in. I also thing hardcore drugs were a factor in the Jennings murders.

    I totally agree. College kids do not have to go to the seedy parts of town in the middle of the night to score weed. They can buy it from their friends or co-workers or barristas. And I really doubt that she was worried about buying pot at 2 am when she had a bunch of family functions the next morning. She was on her way to he parents home to sleep.

    I so wish LE would hold regular press conferences. I completely understand keeping information close to the vest, but without information, this story is going to fade away.

    Does anyone know how far down her route they were able to document her on video? In other words... did they have any other sightings further down from where the white truck was?

    True these women knew each other and into some shady activities. Still a shame that 8 of them were killed and no one besides websleuthers and their families seems to care. If they were 8 middle class white girls, or 8 "Mickeys," there'd be mass hysteria in southwest Louisiana.

    While I'll admit a connection is unlikely, it was the first thing I thought of. Maybe Jennings perp recently moved to Lafayette? Maybe he was out at a bar that night and saw her riding her bike and saw an opportunity? Sometimes SK start with prostitutes and move on to middle class women after they've become convinced they're invincible after they've gotten away with killing prostitutes. Just in case, I hope they don't completely rule it out, however unlikely it is. And I wish the 8 Jennings women (and all other unsolved murders and disappearances) were getting the kind of coverage Mickey is. It's an obvious socio-economic class issue (the Jennings women were white and black, so it can't simply be written off as a racial issue).

    The 8 victims all "partied" at the same crack house.

    The key is often reading/listening clearly to the details with logic and not emotion.

    AFAIK, they haven't released any information about her sightings other than the two photos of her on her bike.
