    Opelousas is about a 10 minute drive from Lawtell, where Brandon Scott Lavergne (murderer of Mickey Shunick & Lisa Pate) lived in a trailer home prior to his arrest for Mickey's murder.

    Some more info on Earl "Bubba" Kidder's disappearance here.
    Apparently the car he was in the day he disappeared was found burned:
    Seems to me it'd be more likely his body (if he's deceased) is out in the swamps or woods of St. Martin Parish, but I guess he or his remains could have been brought back to Opelousas (St. Landry Parish). I wonder where the friends he was camping/fishing with lived at the time.

    Sandra seems like she could be a possibility, as well as Eddie (there's so little info on either of their cases, particularly Eddie's).

    From the above link:

    "He said detectives and cadaver dogs searched the woods near the house but could find no grave site or other remains.

    As of now, he said police don’t even know whether the skull was that of a man or woman or even how long it might have been buried.

    “I certainly couldn’t tell. It was pretty scarred up from animals and weathered,” Guidroz said."

    Wow, thanks for posting. I'm looking to see if we have threads for any of these cases...

    Odd, in Kidder's case, it says his friend picked him up in a truck that was later found burned, but the friend has no idea what happened to him...:waitasec:

    Another missing person from St. Landry Parish-
    Dale LeFleur, white male, age 68 in 2011 when he went missing.
    The article in the above post also mentions him. Dale was last seen in Port Barre, which Google says is about a 17 minute car ride & a little less than 10 miles from Daisy Lane (where the skull was found).

    Dale's NAMUS page: https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14480/0/

    <Sort of O/T, but this reminds me...I wonder if they have identified the skull found in the vase on the golf course in Florida...>

    I am the niece of Eddie Matthew Martin. We (the family) still have no word on him. The trail ends in 1991 when he was involved in a vehicular accident in Opelousas. Do you guys know if this skull that was found in 2013 was sent to FACES Lab at LSU? We need closure so badly. Thank you for helping.

    I will look when I get to the computer tomorrow. Bessie might come by sooner and be able to help. That is a long time to not have answers! I can't imagine how hard that must be.
