    "There's a painstaking attention to details," said Scott Mire, an associate professor in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's Department of Criminal Justice. "It just moves slow, because you process every single thing. In the end, the goal is to link this body to the suspect."

    Use this thread for discussion, especially of any new developments in the case.

    Has anything new come out since the confirmation it was Mickey? I couldn't find the thread we had been posting on so I'm not sure. TIA

    Nevermind. I see that the thread name had simply been changed with this most recent change.

    Mary Manhein, director of the LSU lab, used dental and medical records to help identify the remains as Shunick, said Keith Talamo, Lafayette Parish coroner chief medicolegal investigator.

    It could be two to four weeks before Manhein is able to determine a cause of death, he said

    Is it known whether BSL took LE to Mickey's remains?
    Don't take yourself so seriously... nobody else does.

    The cause of death may not be released until the trial (if there still is one)?!

    I have always wondered if this lady ever gets to sleep! Bessie deserves a spa day.

    My guess is that she died through asphyxiation.

    That was the cause of death for Lisa Pate.
    And his ex-wife made a statement that he tried smothering her.

    It's a common thing among sex offenders who kill, and Brandon seems to have "preferred" that method.

    Poor Mickey...

    I also thought if Brandon admitted to killing Mickey (And leading LE to her body) they wouldn't really NEED to look for DNA, because he admitted to it.

    What am I missing?

    I am in agreement.... if he took them to her body.. that is admission of guilt???? Right??? otherwise, how would he know where she was buried????
