Shunick's remains have been released

Michaela "Mickey" Shunick's remains have been released to a funeral home.  According to sources, arrangements are being made for a private service for family members and close friends.  Shunick's father, Tom Shunick, said Tuesday a public memorial will be scheduled at a later date.  The missing Louisiana-Lafayette student's remains were found Aug. 7 buried near an old cemetery on La. Highway 10 in rural Evangeline Parish. Authorities were led to the remains after Shunick's killer, Brandon Scott Lavergne, struck a plea deal that allowed him to serve a life sentence on each of 2 counts of first-degree murder in the May 19 killing of Shunick and the 1999 killing of Lisa Pate.  Lavergne began serving his life sentence at Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola on Friday.
