(WHAS11) -- Police in Lafayette, Louisiana say they believe that the human remains that they found Tuesday belong to college student Mickey Shunick who disappeared in May right before her 22nd birthday.
Registered sex offender Brandon Lavergne was arrested and charged with kidnapping and killing Shunick shortly after she went missing. Police say he is not cooperating and will not comment on where they got the information about where to find this body.
Shunick's family does not want to comment until they hear officially that the body is hers. Police say it will take a few days to make a positive identification.
