In probably the only move left to him, Brandon Scott Lavergne pled guilty today to the murders of Michaela “Mickey” Shunick and Lisa Pate. And, in doing so, he revealed the heartbreaking story of how everything went down on that fateful night back in May when Shunick went missing — and on another night in 1999 when he killed Lisa.
A Lafayette Parish grand jury indicted Brandon Scott Lavergne for the first degree murder of the still-missing Mickey Shunick. But in a bombshell, grand jurors also found enough evidence to also charge him with the first degree murder of an Acadia Parish woman who was found dead in 1999.
It’s not much, but all of us who are still hoping that Mickey Shunick will still be found can help in some small way tonight. Mickey’s family is asking for a mass moment of silence at 10 p.m. tonight, and they’re also asking you to show your support by turning on your porch lights or lighting a candle. If nothing else, it at least brings some positive energy to a sad story.
