    garryb, thank you for sharing this morning. In some fashion, I assume it to be a cleansing for you and your family. A new day for truth, a new day for healing. Might I ask if BSL suffered any 'DRUG' issues?

    We are all pretty tore up about all this, especially her. I'm afraid it is going to be quite a while before we get to a point where we see any good out of this situation, but thanks for you kind words and thoughts.

    This clears up a lot. Thank you for sharing this. You and your family are victims just the same (albeit of a different variety), and you are all in our thoughts. I can only imagine how mortified she must have been, knowing that she had been duped into assisting someone for whom she cared in covering up such heinous acts.

    Given what you just revealed, it's obvious that LE was -- and is -- way, way on top of this situation (including searches and investigations of said property and persons) and IMO there's no need for the public to know her address.

    That said, please let her know that those of us who have followed this case here are grateful for her cooperation with LE, as she helped take down a very dangerous person. I'm just sorry that it wound up being someone she (and the rest of her family) cared about so much.

    I have no knowledge of any diagnosis or clinical treatment. IMO BSL was a "bad seed" nothing more, nothing less. Some people are weak and cannot overcome their urges. Brandon was one of those, truly weak, while putting on an appearance of being strong. Must have been quite an internal conflict within his mind. I don't buy into the theory that his actions are within his DNA, and I don't think you will ever put a logical conclusion to that which is truly illogical.

    To my knowledge he did not have a drug or alcohol problem. He may have smoked a doobie now and then, but then that doesn't make you kill people. He never drank around me or anyone that I know of. Quite the opposite, he presented himself as a Christian.

    Garryb, if you don't mind me asking, how long did it take for him to "recover" from his wombs? Some reports say they were life threatening and others indicate they were not that critical.

    IMO his injuries weren't "life threatening" except in his own mind. I would back that up from the report that said the hospital released him with non-life threatening injuries.
    I think they truly life threatening in the way they tied him to what actually happened. Thank Mighty Mick!
    I think, but don't know for sure, that he took a rotation off. Not sure, but I think it was about a month.

    I had typed a response to MamaRoux on the old thread but it was closed when I entered it-- so I pasted here:


    Beautiful statement . I just to my husband last night that if I were the Shunick's, I think I might not read BSLs letter either. I'd let my attorney read and store if anything might be relevant to the future. If BSL is repentant to them, his family, GF , whoever --- it means little . To me--- his repentance is between him and God. And if he really wants it and is sincere God will grant . And quite honestly I hope that is the case. It would be the ultimate justice over evil . BUT--- some of the mysteries of this world are not for us to know. BSL is best being served earththly justice and being put where he does not have the opportunity to succumb to the evil that has been or is within him. It's easy to let ourselves imagine letting him be terrorized as he has others. And it satisfies our hurt and anger and frustration at a broken people and broken society. But ultimately the blessing lies in the battle a little angel courageously took up to fight against evil and help prevent it from continuing. Mighty Mickey carried some amazing strength . I think thins speaks volumes about the kind of person she was raised to be! I know her parents must be full of pride. Their actions through out this all are inspiring.

    Must stop now as the tears are rolling-- excuse typos-- I'll fix later

    Thanks again, garryb - I'm sure I read that Brandon was sent to a psychiatric hospital many years ago, while he was still in school - possibly when he was in his early teens. I have no link to that information, but perhaps one of my fellow sleuthers can help with this? I also read that he had been bullied and mocked in school, and became a bully himself and earned the nickname *Psycho*. In a small community like Church Point, it must have been hard for him to try to shake off that reputation. People are quick to label and judge others, especially kids - and so I'm guessing he decided to live up to his reputation. It's a pity that he chose to do so, instead of proving everyone wrong and living a happy, productive, good life. JMO

    Dona, you asked on the trial thread about the pic to which I linked. That thread is now closed, thus my reason for replying here.

    Anyway, that pic was posted on the KATC website. It was snapped in NYC yesterday afternoon...not sure who the photographer was. But dammit if it isn't awesome, eh?

    First, I too would like to thank you and BSL's sister for her cooperation with the police. I have a brother. I love him so very, very much. I imagine being in her shoes and I respect her so much for doing what is right even though I imagine it wasn't easy. That speaks volumes about HER character. Her cooperation was very brave and selfless. Please let her know. I imagine there is a lot of grief within BSL's family. He is not a reflection of you. He chose the path he went down. We may never understand why or how he could commit the crimes he did but please remember the guilt is his alone to bear.


    And 2nd- one of the most common hitches for the oilfield is 2weeks on/2 off. So a month sounds about right.

    We know from the confession/papers from court Friday that BSL was driving around Lafayette calling escort services.

    I have to wonder if there aren't any missing/deceased escorts in Lafayette that haven't gotten much attention (and prostitutes from around the Four Corners area of Lafayette, as he wasn't driving that far from there).

    if you don't mind another question Garryb, how long has he known his birth family? The reason I ask is because I am kinda curious how long he has been traveling to Texas to see them. BTW thank you for your help today. On a side note, I felt like we would get more answers yesterday from the hearing, but I woke up today with more questions than I had yesterday morning.

    Yes, very good point! Also some of the so-called "Jennings 8" - there are some of those girls who were murdered when Brandon was out of jail.

    I made a BIG mistake. I thought I remembered reading in the court documents that he "formulated a plan" with his out of town friend. I just back and reread the documents and it said that he "formulated a plan" when he went back to his residence for the second time before he went to NOLA. I STAND CORRECTED!!! I'm very sorry for this mistake.

    Very interesting! I agree, good point! IMO, with the calls (plural), this was something he frequently used.
