Volunteer searchers continue to keep a look-out on Whiskey Bay, the area where Mickey Shunick's bicycle was found.
"My courageous child faced down a monster. Now I think I can face monsters too. And so can you." ~Nancy Anne Rowe, mother of Mickey Shunick
Let's face it, we've got nothing. We can sit and speculate until the cows come home, and we still have nothing. The only thing we have is what has been released by LE and it's not much. The comments here on Mickey's thread are already beginning to slow down. Let's just hope and pray that something comes up, and LE has something more to go on, and they will eventually inform the public when they do.
Where is Mickey?!?!?!?!?!
8paws, archenemy toenail, bekind, Cajun Girl, CajunRagin, charminglane, crzimmer, Dee10, dejavoodoo64, Donamena, GateKeeper, heartfortruth, jumpingbean79, JurysOut, justm, JustyThoughts, liltexans, mahmoo, MamaRoux, nervous_nellie, oddball62983, perhaps, Pichele, PinkiGreen, pjcitizen, PlainJaneDoe, PMLsmom, Redgoblin, Storm, SyraKelly, towerguy, wfgodot, WideOpen
It is common in other missing cases to hear LE give accounts of the dogs searching and speak fairly openly about the search dogs and the SAR handlers.
Why not in this case?
There are dogs that can detect the live person and a persons death scent.
I always appreciate the verified SAR dog people in the threads they are very helpful and knowledgeable. I do not think we have seen any comment in Mickeys thread from these fine folks here though.
People go missing at the grocery store, walking from their parked cars to their homes, and pretty much everywhere else. There's no point in speculating what might have happened if anyone had done something differently.
ACI, two things. Were you able to get down to the large bus parking lot on St Mary's and what are your thoughts about it?
Another thing, is the camera at 216 Landry that we have all spoken about working, and did it capture Mickey there? Thanks
I am wondering what the local public mood is.
LE seems to be keeping things close to the vest but how long can the public continue to put faith in LE while their children and family are possibly living amongst a killer.
Do most people in town feel safe? Has LE come out and said, we think it is someone who knew Mickey and we do not feel it is a stranger so yall do not have to worry and be vigilant or has LE left it hanging?
I'm not saying it well but I hope you understand the question. At some point I think LE should reassure the community that they have information and its people are safe. If they are not safe then give them information to keep themselves safe.
Where is Mickey? Everyday gets more frustrating and scary.
OK, I'm caught up now. Regarding the poster who asked about the red-light cams:
1. Red light cams, I am almost certain, won't trigger on a bike. Too small.
2. The only red-light cam on her entire suspected route is at W. Congress and Guilbeau - a lot closer to home. LINK to camera sites.
3. Red-light cams don't continuously record. They trigger for a speeder or a red-light-runner.
4. they make license plate covers to fool the cameras, AND they actually sell a PHOTOBLOCKER SPRAY, all over Lafayette to cover your plate!
The camera at 216 St. Landry is working (because it caught the video of the olds) but I don't know what else is on the video because LPD took it all. They claim there is no more footage of Mickey so we have to assume that means she's not caught on camera there.
OT: HLN reporting Luko Magnotta arrested in Germany!
eta: LE has been quiet. It's hard to say if that's b/c they don't feel that there is a huge danger, or b/c they are not wanting to create hysteria. I'm sure if another girl goes missing soon, they will be forced to speak up. Regardless, we should always be aware of our surroundings. It's just so easy to not think about what could be waiting around the corner.
I am very unnerved by this whole situation. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I tend to be alone for long periods of time with no friends or family AND because I still have the Baton Rouge serial killers on the brain...not to mention the murders of the Jennings women just down the road a bit.
That said, people still have to go on with life. And sometimes that's easier if you don't focus on what could go wrong or the harm that could come your way.
