    Here's the link to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office police report where BSL stated he was interviewed by NOPD detectives for 2 hours.

    Before JPSO interviewed BSL, security personnel at Oschner's told the JPSO detective that Orleans Parish detectives had already interviewed BSL.

    Although AOMF is technically, physically in Jefferson parish, it's address is Orleans parish. Not sure if that would have anything to do w/ both LE interviewing him.
    I don't think he would have said the mugging took place in Orleans, since he stated that he didn't know where he was??
    The choice of Ochsner has always been problematic for me.
    On his way into Nola he would have passed Ochsner- Kenner trauma, EJ, Lakeside Women's. in Nola, LSU Charity, Tulane, uptown, Touro, Ochsner-Baptist. Main campus for AOMF is a bit out of the way for the average non-resident. If he didn't know where he was attacked, why pick Ochsner?

    Especially if he's saying he was robbed at a gas station downtown. He'd have had to passed all of those except Kenner if he was truly lost downtown and then accidentally cross the bridge to end up on the Westbank Expressway and then just stumble upon the Belle Chasse Highway to get to Ochsner.

    And, if he had reported it to NOPD, why would they have not sent him for medical attention when they were interviewing him?

    It's always bothered me that the JPSO just let him go. My guess is they thought he was involved in a drug deal gone bad and since he wouldn't talk, had no choice.

    I still can't wrap my head around a finger so badly cut it needed surgery in Opelousas that wasn't addressed at Ochsner. I've often wondered if he didn't actually get that cut after he left there.

    I always thought there was a window in which to stitch or repair a cut of about three hours. Surely they wouldn't have let him leave without repairing it, unless he signed himself out AMA.

    There's actually an 8 to 12 hour window typically. They may have sewn up finger at Ochsner or just stabilized bleeding and then made referral for him to see ortho/hand specialist for further repair if nerves or tendons affected--which must have been the deal. He then saw GP--the specialist to do surgery. Those repairs have about 10 day to 2 week window for repair.

    My sister cut her hand at base of finger recently, went to after hours and was sewn up, only to find the nerve was damaged and no sensation later. She had surgery almost 2 weeks later to repair the nerve damage.

    What I cannot see is him going back to work offshore that soon after if he is a mechanic--unless he was put on some other duty or he did not reveal that he had an injury to work.

    Would the ER staff have been able to tell that he didn't just get those wounds from a recent mugging somewhere, somehow??

    Yes, I would imagine that an ER doctor would have been able to tell if the wounds had begun to start to heal as opposed to just having recently occurred. I'm not sure if they were actually looking for that or noticing it at the time though. Hopefully, they did and will be called to testify to that at the trial.

    As for the NOPD, I believe one of the MSM articles stated that bc BSL said he could not recall where the alleged mugging occurred, both NOPD and JPSO were called. I'll try to find the link and post it. It is interesting that there's no reference of NOPD in the document, though. Perhaps the reporter was mistaken, or maybe NOPD hadn't arrived...just speculating.

    I don't have the documents with me, but as I recall, the JPSO report on BSL's visit to Ochsner referred to the NOPD. NOPD interviewed him first and called JPSO.

    The staff there (I worked there for @ 10 yrs) is great & well-trained, as are ER docs. They would have been able to spot the holes in his 'story' early on. If you just got mugged, by a White guy w/ god teeth (in Nola, no less) w/ a black hat covering most of his face (in May) w/ a Saints jersey that doesn't exist yet, your wounds would be fresh. Any ER nurse or doc would be able to tell that his story was hinky from th beginning. Just wondering why NOPD was called first.

    I thought he said it had happened about 7-8 hours earlier. Would they really take note it they looked more like 20 hours old, vs. 8 hours old?

    Even if he checked in on the phone, he may have mentioned the surgery when asked because he had already concocted the mugging story. If in person, his hand would have been bandaged and he would have likely been asked what happened.

    That's even worse if he said he was trying to find an ER? That's so odd?? Who would believe that?
    I'm prob confused. Can't quite get his timeline. If he abducted & killed Mickey in th early hours of the 19th, which was a Saturday, no? Why would he be in Nola on 20th? O do I have it off?

    Mickey went missing around 2AM Saturday, the 19th. He showed up at Oschner at around 11PM stating he got mugged at 3PM.

    Credit to KATC's timeline that they have posted:
    05/19/2012, 1:48 a.m.: Mickey is caught on camera, riding her bike, on St. Landry Street. Police say between St. Landry and Blackham Coliseum, Lavergne allegedly kidnapped Mickey. Her bike's damage is consistent with being hit from behind by a vehicle.
    05/19/2012, approximately 3:00 pm: According to a police report from Jefferson Parish, Lavergne says he was attacked at a gas station in the New Orleans area, repeatedly stabbed by an unknown man.
    05/19/2012, 6:30 p.m.: Mickey's family reports her missing to police.
    05/19/2012, 11:00 p.m.: Lavergne is interviewed by Jefferson Parish deputies in connection with an aggravated battery/robbery against him earlier that afternoon. The interview happens at a hospital in New Orleans as Lavergne is being treated, according to a police report. Lavergne can't recall where it happened.

    So he tells the officer at the hospital in NO that he drove around awhile trying to find a hospital. BSL stated this because his wounds were probably noticeably not fresh so he needed an excuse to delay fresh wounds not being seen. He also was hoping to lay a foundation for an alibi, and one last thing, he stated his GPS was malfunctioning...he stated this in case LE can link him to anything with the GPS, his defense will try to say the GPS is wrong because it wasn't working right. OVEY!

    Assuming that he had nerve/tendon damage, which is more than likely, it still wasn't life threatening so I don't find it strange at all that they sent him to a hand surgeon closer to his home. I'm sure they cleaned and bandaged it, then made it clear to him that if he was to regain use of it at all, he would need the surgery. Dr. Porubsky is an extremely capable surgeon, specializing on the hand. Of course, had any of his wounds be life threatening, surgery would have more than likely been done there, but that was not the case.

    He was seen at Ochsner Medical Center on Jefferson Hwy in Jefferson, LA. I do agree Ochsner is out of the way if he were driving around downtown. No matter which route he used to get to Ochsner from downtown, he would have passed other hospitals along the way.

    I'm thinking, JMO he was traveling that road that runs parallel to the river, then crossed over at the closest intersection to cross the river and straight up to THAT particular Oschners.

    One poster, way back, said the Heuy Long was closed that day.
