The Lafayette Police Department is currently conducting a search of property outside of Lafayette Parish in connection with the Mickey Shunick investigation. The location and findings at that site are not being released at this time, according to Lafayette Police Cpl. Paul Mouton. More information will be forthcoming, he said. Law enforcement sources elsewhere tell KATC a body was found in a private cemetery on LA 10 heading toward Oakdale in Evangeline Parish.
Sources close to Mickey Shunick's family say they have not been notified by authorities of any new developments in the case today. Rumors are running rampant that Mickey's body has been found in Evangeline Parish. Family says they're also hearing rumors. Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson Capt. Shawn Eckhart says a man's body has been found in Evangeline Parish, and he died of natural causes. He said he can't confirm a woman's body, much less Mickey Shunick, has been found.
