    Wonder what the reason would be to remove the grips....maybe he did have the bike for some time and was thinking it would look like a diff bike without the grips. If it were to remove fingerprints ..why not just wipe them down and throw the whole bike in water?

    I've felt all along that this was a crime of opportunity. He may not have been driving around looking for a victim, but took advantage of the opportunity when he saw Mickey on her bike.

    I'm curious to know more about BSL's other property in Duson. Does anyone have a link to more information on this? For the sake of sleuthers not familiar with the area, here is a google map showing location and distance between Duson and Church Point. Also, keeping in my mind the fact that Mickey worked at an equestrian centre in Duson http://www.willowoakseq.com/ and add to that, the missing 15 year old from Duson,Keiosha Marie Felix (who disappeared April 30th) http://www.bustedinacadiana.com/2012/07/duson-teen-considered-endangered-runaway/#.UARoufX2Cn-

    Mr Shunick believes he did not dump the bike until AFTER MS was reported missing with the description of the handle grips. BSL removed them and tossed them in the water hoping they would float away but they did not!

    He did it in hopes of delaying and ID on the bike.

    Still not sure if he threw bike in the water or on a pile of junk...
    It's been reported both ways!

    My thought was IF BSL used a heat gun to remove handles bars he may have left an IMPRINT of a finger print in the plastic! Water won't destroy that.

    A poster up thread mentioned that BSL seems to use fire/arson as a good method of disposal........this leaves a very bad taste in my mouth as to what happened to MS.....sorry, I just hate saying that!!!! Please God, don't let that be it!!! Just bring her home!!!:((

    This statement from Mr Shunick made me sad that he destroyed Mickey's bike and asked myself why he would do that. I thought that the perp didn't want the gold grips to be associated with the bike since the media had provided such a good description specifically mentioning the grips. I also thought that the perp dumped the bike after seeing all the posters and media information, and not before, like LE suspected (JMO).
    Now that BSL is a suspect, I'm thinking that a mechanic would have ready access to an air compressor for easy removal. Again, JMO.

    If she worked at this equestrian center, how did she get to work so far away with only a bicycle?

    If he went to so much trouble to remove the grips so as to not identify the bike...why on earth leave them there where he left the bike? I'm not so sure that was the reason...maybe he got blood on them or something...who knows. Or maybe that info was wrongly given to Mr. Shunick, about them "floating". Things do get mixed up in the telling.

    BBM.

    I'm glad you brought this up. LE has stated since they found the bike that they believe it was dumped the morning she went missing. However, removing the hand grips and dumping the bike after the bike was described in the media is much more in keeping with BSL's other actions. The truck wasn't reported stolen and then burned until after those pictures of it were released.

    He seems to be very reactive, not so much proactive.

    This makes me think he did not go to WB right after abducting Mickey. He probably wouldn't have had the equipment in the truck to remove the grips. Wonder when the bike was put in WB?

    Even when a body is cremated, there are remains. If that were the case, LE would have found Mickey's remains (ashes, bone fragments) at the scene of the truck fire. I don't know if they did or not.

    They stated that the truck was badly burnt but they did not find a gps or human remains in the truck. I read the article on here yesterday but i don't know how to do a link..sorry

    He wouldn't have taken her to TX, IMO, since he was claiming the truck was stolen. He couldn't very well explain remains possibly being found in the truck and eventually being identified as Mickey's, since he did not report the truck stolen until well after she was taken. She is unlikely to be anywhere near TX, IMO.

    This has prolly be mentioned before, but I wonder if MS kept a knife in her little leather bag and noticed she was being stalked and had pulled it out. Curious if all his wounds were on the right side...and happened within the truck?

    I agree. And he didn't report the truck stolen/burn it until LE released those pictures saying they were looking for it.

    As time goes on, I'm thinking more and more that Mickey was disposed of before the bike was dropped at Whiskey Bay, and that the bike being dropped at WB was a reaction to the description of it being released. But who knows, LE's first statement could be right, and dropping the bike the morning she was abducted could be the one pro-active disposal of evidence/cover up he completed.
