Mickey Shunick: What you need to know today May 31, 2012

Volunteers are needed to help search for Mickey Shunick. A few crews went out this morning, but more are needed, said family spokesperson Christina Silvetti. Since volunteer searches were suspended yesterday only, there's some confusion as to whether volunteers are still needed. They are, and searches resumed this morning at 8:00. Volunteers are needed daily. Searches start at 8:00, and the last search party leaves Blackham Coliseum at 4:00 in the afternoon. Anyone who wants to volunteer should go to Blackham between 8:00 and 4:00. Searches will run daily.

Family Of Mickey Shunick React To Whiskey Bay Search, Private Investigator

 ::snipping2::

Christina Silveretti, a public spokesperson for the family, says they were understandably nervous, as would any family in that situation, she says. When searchers came up with nothing of significance, though, Silveretti says the family breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Silveretti says they believe Shunick is still alive and are remaining confident that she will be returned to them safely.

Silveretti also confirmed the Shunick family has hired a private investigator. Despite media reports Wednesday afternoon that the family had just hired John Abdella, though, Silveretti says he has been employed by the family since the second day of Shunick’s disappearance.

JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL
Cops Search for Driver of White Pickup; Verdict Watch in John Edwards Trial
Aired May 30, 2012 - 19:00   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL, HOST: Now here`s what`s happening. Jane Velez Mitchell coming to you live from New York City.

Police zero in on a suspicious white pickup truck in the disappearance of beautiful young co-ed Mickey Shunick, who cops fear has been abducted. Is the driver of this truck, caught on surveillance video, the key to this case? The missing woman`s father joins me live next.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

VELEZ-MITCHELL (voice-over): Tonight, the urgent search for missing Louisiana college student Mickey Shunick takes an ominous turn as officials tell volunteer searchers just stop looking. Do they know something we don`t? Her dad joins me tonight.

This as cops hunt for a mystery driver caught on surveillance video. Is this unidentified vehicle now the focus of the investigation?

And new claims of flirting, cliques and even matching clothes inside the John Edwards jury. After eight days the whole country is wondering, when will the decision finally come down to the one-time presidential candidate with the stunning fall from grace?

Plus, it`s a 21st Century version of the Hatfields and the McCoys. A Minnesota family says they`re being terrorized by the neighbor from hell. They accuse their neighbor of verbal threats, terrorizing signs, obscene gestures, all in front of the couple`s three young kids. Can you relate? We`re taking your nasty neighbor calls tonight.

And one of America`s most notorious killers back in the news. One of Charlie Manson`s followers caught on tape talking with his lawyer. Now cops will finally hear what they said. Will this tape hold the key to a slew of unsolved murders?

Plus, a new Bill claims to reveal the secret to slim. We`ll tell you.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It was either a crime of opportunity or someone just made a mistake, and they`re scared and trying to cover their tracks.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Critical breaks in the case of missing co-ed Mickey Shunick.

BRETTLY WILSON, FRIEND OF MICKEY SHUNICK: We just want her back. We want her safe. We want our friend.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She left here at this house around 2 in the morning.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It was Mickey`s family who confirmed the bike is hers.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For the first time in days the Shunick family and investigators have something to go on.

TOM SHUNICK, FATHER (via phone): I`m as sure as I can be that it`s Mickey. I mean, that`s her. I can just tell by her posture on that bike.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Her bike discovered submerged under water.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What I believe thoroughly is that the bike was dumped beneath the bridge and was not thrown from the bridge.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I know that I`ll never look at a missing person`s case the same way ever again.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The rim was dented, with the tire dislodged from the rim itself.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I think even if someone had a gun to her back, she would run. She would have -- you know, she would have fought.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight, new developments in the disappearance of Mickey Shunick. Police now taking direct aim at a white pickup truck that was seen in surveillance video right around the time this beautiful, petite co-ed vanished while biking home in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Police have now accounted for and eliminated the other two vehicles seen in the footage, but they are still on the hunt for the driver of this, this newer model white four-door Chevy Z-71 pickup truck. Is the person at the wheel either Mickey`s kidnapper or a key witness?

She vanished 11 days ago, biking from a friend`s house at about 2 in the morning. The family believes this surveillance footage that you`ve been seeing shows Mickey on her bicycle.

The last image of her just before she vanished. What happened to her? Her frantic family wants to find out. They are doing everything they can.

A key break came just this past Saturday when fishermen discovered Mickey`s bike under a bridge. It was sticking up out of the river about 25 miles from where she was last seen. It was a bridge connected to Interstate 10, the back wheel of her bike, badly damaged. Does her bicycle hold the key, as well, to what happened to her?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I believe currently that the bike was dumped beneath the bridge and was not thrown from the bridge. A lot of things come into play, obviously, the amount of traffic. The I-10 is very heavily traveled and there is no shoulder on that particular bridge.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I-10 connects Lafayette with several large port cities to the east. Could a predator have used the massive artery as a getaway, taking Mickey with him?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: With an exit off of I-10 under the bridge. That`s how probably the bridge got thrown into the water and this person or persons who had basically, what seems like to me, kidnapped Mickey got back on I-10 and headed -- the bridge is eastbound.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Give me a call. What are your theories, your thoughts? 1-877-JVM-SAYS, 1-877-586-7297. We want to help this family. The devastated Shunick family.

Straight out to Mickey`s father, Tom Shunick. Mr. Shunick, again, our hearts go out to you. We want to be helpful keeping your daughter`s face out there. I know that this is crushing for her family and friends. Popular, popular girl, doing very well in school, with her life ahead of her, didn`t have anything to drink that night, according to her friends, was drinking water and was simply biking home, which should be a right of a citizen in this country. A female should be able to get on her bike and this is a travesty, and I know all of our viewers want to help you figure out what has happened.

Mr. Shunick, have the police told you anything? For example, we understand they have told the volunteer searchers back off, don`t continue searching. Do you know why they said that, sir?

SHUNICK (via phone): No, they didn`t say that. They just took a day off. The Texas EquuSearch, you know, people have all been out all day long in this 94-, 95-degree heat. And they just took a day off. They`ll start back up tomorrow, tomorrow morning.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Oh, good.

SHUNICK: That was just a foot search.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Well, we were under the impression -- maybe it was the wording, that essentially, the volunteers...

SHUNICK: I heard that a lot, but that`s what it was. Everybody -- a lot of people were under that impression, but they, in effect -- I mean, they just took a day off. And it was a foot search and not the search.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, I`ll tell you what. Texas EquuSearch does an incredible job, and you`re fortunate to have them on your team.

SHUNICK: They`re amazing.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: They really are. We`re a friend of Tim Miller. He`s an amazing guy, and he had his own tragedy involving his own child. So it`s a cause he holds dear.

SHUNICK: I know.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Here`s the thing. Whoever dumped Mickey`s bike under that bridge, did they get on Interstate 10 and head East? That is one of the crucial questions.

Now, there are nearly 100 traffic cameras along I-10 in Lafayette, but get this. This is a horror. They`re live cameras for traffic. They don`t record. They`re just to observe the traffic patterns. All right?

Now, Lafayette is connected by I-10 to several small and mid-sized cities to the east. Baton Rouge and then all the way to Jacksonville, Florida.

I want to go out to Bill Warner, private investigator. If this major highway runs the width of the entire southern U.S. and was used as a getaway for a possible kidnapper, how do police proceed?

Because I can tell you that we called Baton Rouge P.D., the first big city to the east. And they said they were aware of this case, but they would not give us any information of what they might have done to try to find Mickey, referring us back to Lafayette P.D. -- Bill.

BILL WARNER, PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR: Yes. I`m here. Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

WARNER: I think they really need to expand this -- this search for Mickey into Florida, because from the point where that -- that bike was found under the bridge, it`s only, like under four hours and you`re in Pensacola, Florida. I mean, it`s just a quick shot one way. You`re through four different states. You need to expand this search beyond Louisiana.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, why do you say Florida? I mean, we`ve got all these other cities between Lafayette and Jacksonville, Florida. Do you think that this individual, if there is this individual in this white pickup truck driving with Mickey, that he would go all the way to Florida? And if so, why?

WARNER: Well, I`m aware that there`s a lot of construction work along the Gulf Coast. And a lot of people that live in Florida work over in Louisiana, Mississippi. And they work during the week, and they come back on the weekends.

Mickey was basically, I feel, kidnapped on a Saturday night, a weekend. They need -- they need to look into this.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Police want to talk to the driver of a newer model white Chevy Z-71 pickup truck seen on this surveillance video.

Now, Holly Hughes, former prosecutor, how do cops go about finding this truck? Obviously, it`s great that they have a white Chevy pickup truck. Can they go through registration and get the thousands and try to whittle it down?

HOLLY HUGHES, FORMER PROSECUTOR: Well, they can, but that`s not going to be near as effective as what we are doing right now, Jane. Putting it out there in the media. They`re also going to visit all the local businesses, see if that truck pulled in and check credit-card receipts for the same time stamp that`s on the video.

They`ll try and narrow it down that way, because quite frankly, they just don`t have the manpower and resources to look through 32,000 registered white pickups. They`re depending on the public. They`re depending on people who were in the area.

And they will check all the surveillance cameras from local businesses to see if there`s a different angle. Can they get a partial license plate? If they get a partial license plate, that will narrow it down.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And remember, there was a woman who said in the same area somebody had the same exact -- she described a white, middle-aged man in the same exact kind of pickup truck, trying to pick her up, using very sexual language, offering to pay her for sex.

HUGHES: Right.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: So, my gosh, Joe Gomez, senior investigative reporter, KTRH News Radio, that to me dovetails: this pickup truck and then this experience this girl in this area had not so long ago.

JOE GOMEZ, SENIOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, KTRH: Yes, I mean, it`s hard not to, you know, connect the dots here, Jane. It sounds to me like there might be a sexual predator lurking out there in Lafayette, and the guy reportedly even admitted to this woman that he likes to drive around looking for girls and that she was, you know, even on a bicycle. Maybe this guy now finally snapped.

You know, it`s also interesting that Bloomington police in Indiana also had a case where a young college co-ed went missing after coming home from a night on the town, as well. So they`re investigating to see if those two cases might be connected, Jane.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Like maybe a drunk driver or someone who was speeding hit her or cut her off or saw her and was able to get her off her bike somehow or, you know? It seemed like a good idea at the time, and when they sobered up or whatever was, the next day they freaked out and didn`t know what to do.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Charlie Shunick, the sister of missing sister Mickey Shunick is hoping that somehow this was just a terrible accident and that accounts for Mickey`s bike being damaged.

Now, obviously, authorities are going over that bike with a fine- toothed comb. They`re taking whatever they can. If there`s paint on it from another vehicle, that would indicate that it was a car accident. There could be fingerprints; there could be DNA. We don`t have that information back yet, unfortunately.

Straight out to the phone lines. Cynthia, North Carolina, your question or thought?

CALLER: Yes, Jane. Hi, I love you. I just wanted to let you know that.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Thank you.

CALLER: Also, why did that -- her friend let her leave at 2 o`clock in the morning all by herself, being a girl and everything? Why didn`t she just sleep there?

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, first I want to go to Dr. Robi Ludwig, psychotherapist, because Brettly, her very dear friend, is hysterical, sobbing and crying. He feels -- I feel bad for him because he is just obviously wracked over the fact that he was the last person to see her.

But apparently Mickey enjoys riding. She actually has, I believe, a tattoo of a little bicycle. I mean, she`s an avid cyclist.

ROBI LUDWIG, PSYCHOTHERAPIST: I read that, that she had a tattoo on her ankle or somewhere.

Listen, you know, when you`re friends with somebody you don`t think they`re going to be in danger, especially if they`re not drinking, if they tend to live a healthy lifestyle. I imagine Mickey probably went home a lot via her bicycle late at night, and nothing ever happened. So we can`t blame the friend. The friend just assumed that she was -- she was safe. There was no reason to assume anything other than that, and of course, that`s not the case.

I think what we need to blame are, you know, the people who are out committing these crimes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Exactly.

LUDWIG: But to blame a friend, you know, it`s just unfortunate timing.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I`ll tell you what upsets me is the fact that there are all these cameras. We have tons of cameras along the I-10, the very interstate that authorities fear she may have been taken on.

And remember, it goes through Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge has the distinction of being one of the top ten cities in the U.S. when it comes to human trafficking. Teenage girls are often the victim of human trafficking. And that would be, in a sense, a good scenario, in the sense that she would still be alive. That`s what we want to do is find Mickey alive.

But what absolutely infuriates me, Bill Warner, private investigator, is that we talked to transportation officials. There are cameras all the way up and down the I-10, but none of them, to our understanding, record.

So even if this had been caught, this vehicle had been seen, it wouldn`t have been recorded, and they say it`s because there are constitutional issues. I don`t really get it, because in New York City there`s cameras all over the place for terrorism reasons. I think, you know, killers, domestic criminals -- let`s put it that way -- are domestic terrorists.

WARNER: Well, I agree. But -- yes, I agree, but that happens all the time. I travel I-10 myself a lot. What you`ll find at all the rest areas are heavily cameraed. So they need to look at these rest areas from the Lafayette area all the way out to Pensacola, and you just don`t know. You might pick up something. There`s all kind of stuff.

You need to expand this. You need to look at -- you need to look at what happened in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where the -- the woman who disappeared, the soldier. She was at a bar right along 275. I mean, come on.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Our hearts go out to the Shunick family. We are going to stay on this story. We will not forget about your daughter. We want to find her.

Mr. Shunick, thank you for joining us, and we are going to stay on top of this story.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: John Edwards!

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We know the judge has admonished the jurors twice now to only discuss the case when they`re alone together in the jury room.

JOHN EDWARDS, ON TRIAL FOR CAMPAIGN FINANCE CHARGES: Thank you for asking.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They have all recently worn the same clothes.

MARCIA CLARK, FORMER PROSECUTOR: There have been reports that they have been discussing the case in separate little factions outside the courtroom.

EDWARDS: God bless you. Thank you for being here.

Police confirm Rocky Mcgee interviewed in Shunick case

Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft, though he offered no details, confirms a tip The Independent received that detectives investigating the disappearance of UL student Mickey Shunick have interviewed 19-year-old Rocky James Mcgee in connection with the case.
 Craft directed all other questions to spokesman Paul Mouton.
 
“We have questioned many people in connection with this case,” Mouton says, declining to confirm whether Mcgee or anyone associated with him is still being questioned. “That information is part of the ongoing investigation and not public record,” he adds. “We have no one in custody. We have never had anyone in custody.”

Independent Article Fuels Speculation About Mickey Shunick Disappearance

LAFAYETTE, La. — An article from the Independent, a Lafayette-based weekly newspaper, is increasing speculation that foul play may have had something to do with the disappearance of Mickey Shunick, a University of Louisiana at Lafayette student who has been missing since May 19.
 
The article apparently confirms a tip that 19-year-old Rocky James McGee, who was involved in an accident two years ago in which a person was killed, has been interviewed by the Lafayette Police Department in connection with the disappearance of Shunick. McGee, who was 17 at the time, was charged with OWI in that accident, according to the Independent report.
 
However, Corporal Paul Mouton, a Lafayette Police Department spokesperson, would neither confirm nor deny that McGee was interviewed. Mouton, who sounded incensed on the phone when questioned about the report, said many people have been interviewed.

Police: Shunick tips slowing down
Posted: Jun 1, 2012 1:33 PM by Russell Jones
Updated: Jun 1, 2012 1:33 PM

LAFAYETTE - Investigators searching for a missing college student in Lafayette say the number of tips they're receiving are slowing down enough that they're going to make some changes.

Starting tonight, the tip line at the Lafayette Police Department won't be staffed at all hours by investigators. Instead, an answering machine will record tips after normal business hours.

"The number of tips received by the Lafayette Police Department has decreased and it is no longer feasible to answer the tips line 24 hours a day," said Cpl. Paul Mouton.

Detectives will still answer the tip line during normal business hours, and check messages left on the machine

Police continue search for white pickup driver

5:38 AM, Jun 1, 2012

The white pickup seen on a surveillance video just after a missing UL student biked the same area has two distinguishing features: 18-inch alloy wheels and a Z71 sticker.

The problem for police, who would like to talk to the driver, is that a lot of trucks in the Acadiana area have the same identifying features.

Volunteer effort hits dip
5:39 AM, Jun 1, 2012

The volunteer search for missing Lafayette woman Michaela "Mickey" Shunick resumed Thursday with fewer participants after the effort had been suspended for a day.

When volunteers gathered about 8 a.m. at Blackham Coliseum, the number of participants — which reached into the hundreds last week — seemed to dwindle, said volunteer and family spokeswoman Christina Silvetti.
"It was very, very slow today," Silvetti said.
The 4 p.m. volunteer search team departure from Blackham Coliseum was canceled when only one volunteer signed up. Two other volunteers signed in a few minutes later, picking up stacks of fliers to distribute

Latest Update EquuSearch Suspends Search Efforts
Edit to article date.  MB  June 1, 2012
06:28 PM by Alex Labat

For eight days Texas EquuSearch helped the Shunick Family try to find answers as to where Mickey could be.

For eight days Texas EquuSearch helped the Shunick Family try to find answers as to where Mickey could be.

But Tim Miller and his team are now leaving, since there have been no new leads since Mickey's bike was discovered.

Miller can't stay in one place for too long, because his work is never done.

"We've got one in Meridian Mississippi that we're going to be going up on...it never ends."

EquuSearch searched both the land and water, using sonar equipment from both in and out of state. Even though Texas EquuSearch is leaving, they're leaving behind the hope that Mickey Shunick could be found."

Tim Miller knows the dangers of giving up on a case.

"I gave up on Elizabeth Smart, and guess what Elizabeth was certainly found alive. And so we'll hold on to that small, little sliver of hope."

Charlie Shunick hopes that volunteer efforts will ramp up now that EquuSearch is saying goodbye.

"We need footsoldiers, we need volunteers coming here doing things for us, we still need lots of food donations and everything so anything people can do like that would be awesome."

Shunick case tips drop off
by jason brown
Acadiana bureau
June 2, 2012

LAFAYETTE — Citing a drop in the number of tips received in the disappearance of Michaela “Mickey” Shunick, Lafayette police have opted to no longer man a dedicated tips line around the clock.

As of 7 p.m. Friday, an answering machine will record all tips regarding the Shunick case for calls directed to the tips line at (337) 291-8633, police spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton said Friday.

The tips line will continue to be answered Monday through Friday during normal business hours by detectives while messages left during weekends and after hours daily will be checked periodically by an investigator, Mouton said.

“The number of tips received by the Lafayette Police Department has decreased and it is no longer feasible to answer the tips line 24 hours a day,” Mouton said.
 ::snipping2::
While police released no other information pertaining to the case Friday, investigators continue to seek information on a white, four-door Chevrolet Z-71 pickup that was seen on videotape traveling in the same direction on St. Landry Street as Shunick, Mouton said.

Police this week ruled out two other vehicles caught on videotape in the Shunick case. Authorities also ruled out any connection in the Shunick case to the disappearance of an Indiana woman who has been missing since June 2011.

Police have said that Shunick’s bicycle was damaged when fishermen found it Sunday at the Whiskey Bay exit off I-10 in the Atchafalaya Basin.

The rim of the rear wheel was bent and the tire was off the rim.

Investigators have said they do not believe the bicycle was thrown from the bridge. The bike has been sent to the State Police Crime Lab in Baton Rouge for processing.

Meanwhile, the number of volunteers enlisted in search efforts doubled Friday after the effort saw a lower-than-expected turnout Thursday, said Christina Silvetti, with Texas Equusearch, a nonprofit mounted recovery and rescue operation that is overseeing the search for the young woman.

Texas Equusearch joined the search for Shunick on May 23.

The volunteer search effort resumed Thursday after a one-day suspension, which was intended to give volunteers a break.

Silvetti said Friday that she expects the volunteer numbers to jump back up Saturday and Sunday when many people will be off work.

More volunteers are needed and the search effort headquarters remains at Blackham Coliseum, Silvetti said.
Silvetti also said Texas Equusearch members pulled out of Louisiana on Friday after conducting searches earlier in the day. The group left for another assignment in Mississippi, she said.

Silvetti said she will remain in Louisiana as a company representative and that she plans to coordinate volunteer search efforts.

The company normally does not stay on searches this long. “They did as much as they could with the tips and information they were given,” Silvetti said.

She said the group will return to the area if needed and if there are new leads.

Shunick's family remains positive as search enters week 3

 Updated: Jun 04, 2012 5:25 AM MDT

LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) - After more than two weeks of searching for a missing UL-Lafayette student, there is still no sign of the young woman.

Volunteer searchers continue to keep a look-out on Whiskey Bay, the area where Mickey Shunick's bicycle was found.

Friday, a Houston-based search and rescue team announced it is heading back to Texas headquarters until another break comes in the case. Still, all of the support from the community means a lot to the Shunick family, which continues to remain positive.
