Lafayette police have confirmed that the body found earlier this week in Evangeline Parish is Mickey Shunick's.
The body was found in a graveyard near the intersection of Highways 10 and 13 near Mamou.
Police said they were certain it was Shunick, the 22-year-old UL student who went missing nearly 3 months ago, but were waiting on the LSU Faces Lab for confirmation.
The body was found just hours after the suspect in Shunick's death, Brandon Lavergne, was released from jail to be interviewed by Lafayette Police.
Lavergne is in the Lafayette Parish Prison tonight charged with not only Shunick's death but also the 1999 death of Lisa Pate
