Has anyone brought this up yet?
In Jennings (Jefferson Davis Parish), Louisiana a serial killer who was never found killed 8 women and dumped them in canals and other areas apparently since 2005? Jennings, LA is only 45min west of Lafayette. Could he of decided to try his luck with Lafayette?
http://www.theind.com/news/10606-lpd...ases-unrelatedLafayette 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.

This bee my opinion
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?
http://abcnews.go.com/US/mickey-shun...4#.T8ULLu19GXwThe 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."

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.
My posts are to stay at WS, not to be moved to other forums for their members to judge. I know who is moving posts and this is fair warning. If I want my posts moved to other places, I will do it myself.
The above post is JMO, MOO, MHO, and all other disclaimers. Please leave it here at WS! TIA
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).

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
Chicken Fried, do you wanna bring your flyer over to the new thread? Have you been spreading it on FB? Should I?

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?

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 key is often reading/listening clearly to the details with logic and not emotion.
Texaslil, your map rocks! thank you!
