A few years ago a small boy had been dragged to a gators den for food. I do not recall if the boy had drown or been attacked by the gator but his remains were found near the den. Gators do not always eat their prey right away.
Also in 1999 the remains of a missing woman were found in an isolated part of Acadia Parish.
Normally reliable law enforcement sources say Lavergne was among persons of interest in that case. Authorities were never able to close the circle of evidence and charge anyone in what was considered by them a homicide.
Current Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Keith Latiolais said that case remains open but unsolved and could not comment regarding any history of the investigation details.
Investigative files on open cases are not public record. Lavergne has never been arrested on any charges in Acadia Parish, according to the criminal court record.

"Ya know, Old Steve, after almost 13 years I seriously doubt that the 1999 Acadia Parish homicide is an active open case. If it it's not considered a COLD case by now, then the Sheriff & Chief investigator needs to be put to pasture, imo".
The honorable Sheriff & his Chief Investigator needs to understand that predators are recidivist and if not apprehended will take more innocent victims lives. Who knows, the same predator may be responsible for Mickey Schunick or others.
I would think that they would learn a lesson from the valuable resource of the American public in the Mickey Schunick abduction/murder investigation..
Imo, the reason that we have 100,000+ missing/murdered persons in the US today is due to the antiquated strategy of silence being employed by the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Dept. & many other LEAs across America.
I saw that on the Find Mickey Now FB page. It was posted about an hour and a half ago. I'm also on a cell phone and having trouble posting a link . the post did state that TES was back to look for Mickey. No additional search volunteers needed, though. TES is working with LE according to the FB post.
Not seeking to condemn or condone...just searching for the truth.
There is no video of Brandon stalking anyone. There is video that shows that he traveled on the same streets as Mickey and that he was within a minute behind her at the gas station.
We do not know why he was out that night, why he drove that route or in what frame of mind he was in.

This leads me to believe not all killers put a lot of consideration in where the body is left. This man was questioned by police because he had been seen in the same bar as the victim was last seen and because his residence was right there. He was never convicted as it was circumstantial.
A salesman in a knife store once told me an apple corer will do more damage than a knife sometimes. Apple Corers have a point and a jagged blade on both sides.

I don't get the "poison ivy" thing because it's a HIPPA violation for a hospital to give out this info about him. Unless it came from a family member, this story about not being able to perform surgery has to be false. (unless a healthcare worker violated his rights and spilled the beans)
Sounds fishy to me.
"Remember what you were saying about people in the 'burbs, Art, people like Skip, people who mow their lawn for the 800th time, and then SNAP? WELL, THAT'S US. IT'S NOT THEM, THAT'S US. WE'RE the ones who are vaulting over the fences, and peeking in through people's windows. We're the ones who are THROWING GARBAGE IN THE STREET, AND LIGHTING FIRES.

I have read that the damage to the bike is consistent to being hit from behind by a vehicle. I have alo read from a less reliable news article that it was described as major damage to the rear rim, wheel and tire. This is within the media links.
The Profile of a Violent Serial Offender
Often they don't have the nerve to kill the person they're really angry with, so they kill others
Don't kill on impulse. Think long and hard about what they're doing. It's the most important thing in their lives and they want to get it right.
Killers who take the time to dispose of the body well, such as in a river, are often older.
Plans crime, and targets a stranger. Likes to maintain control over everything
Murder is spontaneous and usually of someone he knows, or in a place he knows.
Crime scene is sloppy - body left where it fell
Supposing he hit her by accident? How does that turn into an apparent battle for her life, complete with wounds? If he was really so worried about getting into trouble, he would have either fled the scene and left her there, or dropped her anonymously at/near a hospital, IMO.
Why is being taken almost for granted that he was drunk? Has there been an indication that he has a drinking problem?
I just can't make the accident scenario work, other than perhaps he hit her harder than he planned.
Just my opinion, of course.
I am so relieved to hear this, as some posters were saying that he could say he was not driving his truck that night, for example, so am very happy to know he left a trace of himself there, hopefully on the bike. Explain that, defense attorney, in a way any sane person will believe. Oh you found a damaged bike in the road and decided it needed to be placed in WB?? Or did he just stop at WB to relieve himself and happen to do so on Mickey's bike? Yeah right.

(was he in the area because he knew a girl would be some where on a bike alone at that hour) probaby...
Had he not ended up on camera or getting stabbed, he might have gotten away with it!
This article mentions a stressful "event" triggering them...
I saw an article where a neighbor said his dads house burned down.
I never saw a family member here who was verified state 2 of his houses burned down.
Truth has a way of getting stretched sometimes and the more it is passed around the more the actual story gets changed. I have witnessed it here several times.
There have been no previous reports of him drinking, right?
There is at least one previous report of him being a sex offender.
There is another report of him acting violently toward a woman (his ex).
I also don't understand the point of suggesting it was an accident in the first place.
I am confident LE in this case knows enough to know that it was not an accident, and it was first degree murder. That is what they are charging him with. They have all of the evidence.
(This is my second, but final post on the subject of an accident.) I am here in the hopes of somehow helping find MS.
Oh I didn't know Texas Equusearch is searching again...yeah if they are there with the police, then I'm sure they have a strong lead to suspect MS is around that area. Please bring her home
We don't know there was a battle for life. Someone stabbed Brandon but that could have been Mickey, a stranger or self-inflicted.
You would think he would have just taken off and left her there but he may have gotten out to see what he hit and knew she coud identify him.
I have not read anything about him having a drinking problem or being a casual drinker. It just seems possible being that he was out at that time driving. You just don't see a lot of Sunday drivers out at 2am.
Of course, that's a good time for a predator to look for a victim that may be inebriated too. So many plausible explanations for both sides.
