Friday, July 06, 2012
Mickey Shunick was abducted between St. Landry and St. Mary near the Blackham Coliseum. Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft refuses to comment on whether or not there was a bite-mark from Shunick on Lavergne’s hand. Brandon Lavergne is an offshore oil rig worker and has been offshore for the last two weeks. What was the motive? Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft simply says “He’s a sex offender.” Brandon Lavergne’s white Chevrolet pickup truck was reported stolen and found last month abandoned and burned in San Jacinto County, East Texas.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said the arrest came as his department helped Lafayette police search Lavergne’s residence for evidence. The search was continuing last night, but the sheriff had no details on what was found. And Lafayette police have released no details. Police have scheduled a 1pm news conference for today to discuss an arrest in the case. It was not immediately clear if Lavergne has an attorney. The rural St. Landry address where the search was conducted is listed as the address of Lavergne on the state’s sex offender website.
The website says Lavergne was convicted in 2000 of aggravated oral sexual battery. He was released in 2008. He was reportedly on probation until 2010, and is listed as a Tier 3 sex offender, the most serious classification. Tier 3 offenders must register with the national sex offender registry for life, according to the sex offender website.
