KATC obtained an incident report earlier today from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s office indicating that Brandon Scott Lavergne was at a hospital in the area seeking treatment for multiple stab wounds less than 24 hours after Mickey Shunick was last seen.

Deputies say they arrived at Oschner Hospital on Jefferson Highway just after 11:00 pm on May 19, 2012 after a man showed up there after being stabbed. The victim, identified as Brandon Lavergne, told police he was attacked outside of a gas station.

According to the deputy who wrote the incident report, Lavergne told police he was attacked around 3 P.M. that afternoon and was unsure where the gas station was. He told them that his GPS wasn’t working and he was in an unfamiliar area, so he stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. It was at that point that Lavergne claims a white male with gold teeth, a Saints jersey (#24), a neck tattoo and a black hat that covered most of his face, attacked him out of the blue.

Lavergne was stabbed multiple times in the chest, back, hand and neck – which would explain the wound on his neck seen in his most recent mugshot. He also reported that his wallet – which contained his driver’s license and $40 cash, had been stolen.

Deputies continued to ask Lavergne about landmarks, buildings, street signs or anything that could give them an idea of where his alleged attack may have taken place, but he couldn’t recall anything, and claims that he was just in town visiting a friend. He also told deputies that after being attacked, he drove around until he found the hospital. He also noted that he would be returning home after receiving treatment and leaving the hospital.

The deputy writing the report indicated that the more he would question Brandon Scott Lavergne about the incident that allegedly took place at the gas station, the less information he would provide. Medical staff informed police that his injuries were non-life threatening, so Lavergne was allowed to leave the hospital.

According to reports, police are classifying this as an aggravated battery and theft under $500. Lavergne is listed as the victim.
