Brandon Lavergne Admitted To Hospital Night Mickey Shunick Disappeared

(KPEL) — Brandon Scott Lavergne was admitted to a hospital in Jefferson Parish, suffering from several stab wounds, the same day missing University of Louisiana at Lafayette student Mickey Shunick disappeared.

According to reports, deputies there interviewed Lavergne at an Oschner Hospital on Jefferson Highway at 11 p.m. the night of May 19. Shunick disappeared at two that morning.

Lavergne told deputies he was attacked at a gas station at three that same afternoon. He says he was driving around in an unknown area because his GPS was not working correctly. When he stopped at the gas station to ask for directions, Lavergne says a white man in a Saints jersey wearing a hat that covered most of his face attacked him. He says his wallet was also stolen.

According to the incident report obtained by our news partners at KATC, when Lavergne arrived at the hospital, he was suffering multiple stab wounds to his chest, back, neck, and hand. Deputies questioned him for specific information about where the attack happened, but he was unable to provide them with that information. Lavergne told police he was in town visiting a friend. Further questioning revealed even less information.

Lavergne’s injuries were not life-threatening. Hospital staff therefore released him. Police in Jefferson Parish have classified the incident as an aggravated battery and theft under $500.
