    I had pretty much assumed Mickey had lost her life when first her bike was found in Whiskey Bay, and I was heartbroken. Then when BSL was arrested and we began to learn more about him, I greatly feared that she had lost her life, and I was heartbroken. Then when it became likely that he had led LE to her body, and the body was found, I knew it was her, and I was heartbroken. And yet now, hearing it confirmed that the body found is indeed Mickey, I feel like I have been hit with a ton of bricks. Rest in peace, sweet Mickey. You will never again be hurt by anyone or anything.

    JPSO and NOPD are so used to handling this kind of garbage that there are no red flags. How could they possibly know anything? Mickey had not been reported missing yet.

    Well said. Confirmation brings us to the reality we pretty much know. It still hurts. Today my heart hurts. RIP Mickey. A life taken far too soon.

    I find it a little odd that the LE specifically said in their statement about confirming it was her body that there would be no more statements at this time. I must admit I kind of expected a press conference or something.

    Ironic that EVERY news clip from KATC is proceeded by an ad for Evangeline Downs with their zydeco jingle "come feel the rush. come play with us. evangeline downs....."

    I guess my thought here is this, and I beg to differ. The guy is telling you he was mugged, but doesn't know where, can't tell you where, has stab wounds all over his upper torso, says he's been lost for hours, but somehow ends up on the Belle Chasse Highway at a hospital when if he was, in fact, downtown, you know he's at least passed up Tulane, which is PLAINLY visible from the interstate, to somehow end up on the Westbank, and just happened to make a series of correct turns to get to a hospital, well, yeah, it's suspicous. But even so:

    Had they have bothered to do a warrant check when they KNEW he was acting suspiciously, there WAS an active warrant for his arrest for domestic battery.

    It's a warrant check. Not brain surgery. Just get the guy's name, DOB and SS* and call in a friggin' warrant check.

    Even if the warrant hadn't shown up, they'd have known he was a RSO. That's all I'm saying.

    rhapsdy, I would imagine that after the grueling 82 days that investigators have been through, that they need time to regain their composure to put their thoughts into words. I haven't walked in their shoes, but I would suspect that Mickey Schunick has become their child too..

    I would like to send a song out to Mickey: "If I Die Young," by That Band Perry. Here is the url to listen to it on youtube: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NJqUN9TClM&feature=youtube_gdata_player"]The Band Perry - If I Die Young - YouTube[/ame].

    I lost a close friend one year ago tomorrow, not to a killer like BS, but after a long, hard battle with breast cancer. She, too, was much too young to be taken from this Earth. I will be listening to this song for both Mickey and C.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Mickey's family and friends. May your beautiful daughter/sister/friend rest in peace in the safety of God's love.

    Just an FYI:

    Don't know the number of viewers of other websleuths missing persons threads, but a quick scan of the Mickey Schunick threads exceeds 2.5 million views since 05/19/2012.
    Mickey Schunick has touched a lot of caring people..

    Dental records identify Mickey Shunick's remains





    According to Lafayette Parish Coroner Chief Medicolegal Investigator Keith Talamo, dental records received today and sent to LSU FACES Laboratory identified the body found in Evangeline Parish as that of Mickey Shunick.

    LSU FACES Dir. Mary Manhein told the coroner's office she will complete her examination and determine cause and manner of death in about two weeks and a report will be sent to Lafayette Coroner Dr. Kenneth Odinet., said Talamo. At that point, Shunick's body will be sent to the Lafayette coroner and the coroner's office will turn it over to a funeral home.

    The JPSO and NOPD probably could have done a bit better job, but I don't think it would have changed the outcome. I'm more concerned that the officer BSL checked in with for being a sexual offender - who made notes of his recent scars AND knew he drove a white truck -- didn't put 2 + 2 together.

    Agree. At this point I'm sure there is nothing left to say. I do fear what we will come to know down the road :maddening: At least he is off the Streets.

    There is no way to make sense of this senseless tragedy. Now we strangers can all grieve with Mickey's loved ones --her gentleness, her humor, her radiant youth--it is good to be sad about these losses. This music is in memory of her.

    I am new so not sure one can post YouTube?

    LEO's are people like us, working their jobs day to day. When a case like Mickey's reaches a sad conclusion, they're left with the same sunken feeling many of us are experiencing right now. Cut them some slack. There will be time to talk tomorrow.
