Brandon Scott Lavergne Is Set To Appear In Court Friday August 17th
The Advertiser is reporting that the man accused of murdering Mickey Shunick and Lisa Pate will indeed appear before a judge this Friday, August 17th. Fifteenth Judicial District Court Judge Herman Clause set an evidentiary hearing for 10 a.m. on Friday.The lead prosecutor in the case, Assistant D.A. Keith Stutes, requested the hearing for Friday morning. The request states that the evidentiary hearing be "limited to the perpetuation of testimony."
Lavergne was indicted July 18 by a Lafayette grand jury for the first-degree murder of UL student Mickey Shunick and Lisa Pate. Since then, Lafayette Police have recovered the body of Mickey Shunick in Evangeline Parish on August 7th behind a cemetery off of LA 10, just Northwest of Mamou. Still, we do not know who led authorities to Mickey's body other than a "credible source." Pate's case stems back to her disappearance in 1999.
