    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    For a few days in a row, there have been numerous TOS violations on this case. While it may seem harmless to some, we are getting dozens of complaints from other members who want to discuss this case constructively. From now on, there will be more time outs issued to those who repeatedly choose to ignore our guidelines.

    Here are just some of the problems that occur over and over:

    * Baiting /Trolling / Inciting Conflict: There are times when a member violates our rules by trying to upset other members. Please use your ALERT feature when this happens and DO NOT RESPOND TO THE POSTS. When a moderator is able to deal with the problem, it takes a LOT less time when he/she doesn't have to also deal with all the responses to the offense. Plus, it makes the one who initially started the conflict keep on going.

    * Inviting/Baiting: This is when someone says they have information they can't share on the forum. Then someone else asks for them to PM the information. It's like be at a party and whispering secrets to each other and is not allowed here. If you have something private to share, then send a private message and don't announce it on the public thread.

    * Dreams/Visions: WS doesn't condone dreams and visions and psychic information. There are plenty of sites out there on the WWW that do, but we are not one of them. We have not found that information to be helpful in solving cases.

    * Announcing alerts: Don't announce that you are alerting. Just do your part and make the alert and move on.

    * Sleuthing guidelines: We don’t permit any posts discussing the sleuthing of non-players. Considering there have been no suspects or POI’s named to date, that means pretty much no one is permitted to be sleuthed, except Mickey, This is done to protect the innocent. Think about it – suppose your son (or daughter) gave your next door neighbor a ride to the grocery store, dropped them off with the understanding that they had a ride home. That neighbor disappears and is now missing. Do you want hundreds of people sleuthing your background? Knowing where you live, work, your kid’s names, ages, where they go to school? Would you like every skeleton in your closet to be shaken and posted on a public forum for the world to see? It is not right and not fair to innocent people. Most of these people are only a friend or acquaintance by sheer circumstance. They do not deserve the public scrutiny. It is completely understandable for Law Enforcement to take this approach. However, after their investigation, if they find no basis for suspicion and clear these people, they don’t make their records public either. Simply put, it just ain’t cool to do and we don’t do it here at Websleuths.

    * Sleuthing other members: It doesn't matter what they are doing here, we do NOT sleuth other members. Anonymity is taken very seriously on Websleuths. If this continues, a member could lose their posting privileges permanently

    * Derogatory Name Changes to Case Players/General Name Calling: is not allowed here.

    * “Off-Topic” Posts: Off-Topic posts are subject to editing or removal at administrative discretion, and without notification. Members that continuously post off topic may have their posting privileges suspended. This thread is for discussion of locating Mickey Shunick.

    * Verified Posters, Insiders & Locals:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106653"]See this Link to the Verified Posters: Professionals and Insiders.[/ame]


    We don’t verify every local who follows any case. You are welcome to post photos & maps of the area, post your knowledge about specific areas (e.g., directions, locations, weather conditions, etc..) so we can all have a better understanding. What you cannot do is post information relayed to you by another person (e.g., “I went on a volunteer search last week & another person I met told me “blah blah blah” <insert rumor of your choice> and she said she got it from a co-worker of Mickey’s sister. That is RUMOR and we do not participate in any rumor chasing events here.

    An insider is usually someone with direct knowledge. Often a family member or a close friend. Those we do verify. Keep in mind no one is obligated to become verified; we completely respect and understand those who choose not to do so. All we ask is that you not post inside information claiming it as fact.

    That all said, we are very careful when verifying members. However, we cannot endorse the content of their posts nor assert as to the truth of what is being stated. It is up to the reader to decide that for themselves. We’re simply letting you know that an Administrator or Owner has spoken with this person, gathered data to investigate that they are who they say they are. We do this to protect the integrity of the information posted here.

    None of these rules are new and a more detailed explanation of them can be found here:

    Everyone is now being held responsible for knowing the rules.


    Please know that Moderators are here to help. We realize it takes a bit to learn the WS policies. We've all been there ourselves. At the bottom of the Missing Forum homepage you will see a list of "Forum Leaders". Please feel free to contact the moderator of your choice with any questions you may have. We will be happy to help you learn the ropes around here!

    So just to try and clarify things, as I have been busy the past several days, whatever happened with the kid from BB, who supposedly had pending DUI case? Is he cleared or is that still a possibility?

    LE said he was questioned and cleared

    When I was in college, I had a job working for PI's. They would investigate DUI cases leading to accidents and fatalities. This is the one case that will remain forever imprinted in my mind: A very intoxicated semi-truck driver ran over a motorcyclist on the freeway. The motorcyclist got pinned under the truck and was dragged for miles underneath with his motorcycle. The truck driver parked in his driveway with this fatally injured man still pinned underneath. The truck driver went into his house and took a shower, claiming to have been unaware of anything that happened. And yes, there were blood and flesh trails on the highway.

    Never forget that case. However, I have forgotten other details over the years.

    Just, to let people know, it does happen.

    The PI's went to the bars this truck driver went to to interview people.

    The difference here is that it happened on a fast-paced highway, where sound and sight would be muffled by the expanse of the truck and the velocity it was traveling.

    Don't know if this could happen with a pickup truck and a bicyclist without being noticed.

    Maybe LE was practicing to be ready in the event they did find the VOI!

    Yes, I said in my post above, that there were blood and flesh trails. Still remember typing up that report and being in shock while doing so.

    There was a trial on Courttv (I think) years ago where the drunk driver hit someone and drove all the way home and parked in their garage with the pedestrian, who went through the windshield. They said had the person called 911 or taken them to a hospital, they would've lived. Because they just went inside their house like nothing happened, the person bled to death.

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

    Going through websleuths index, I noticed that Tanya Lynn Thibodeaux and Lexy Jones, 2 Lafayette teenagers are missing. They are listed as endangered runaways. What is the likelihood that these girls are part of a pattern with Mickey? Lexy disappeared on March 30th and Tanya disappeared on April 21. Mickey disappeared on May 19th.Mickey looks quite a bit younger than 21.
    I don't know just wondering if something even scarier could be going on but hoping that it isn't.
