A registered sex offender has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the disappearance of Louisiana college student Mickey Shunick.
Cops arrested Brandon Scott Lavergne, 33, Thursday at his home in Church Point, La., six miles from where Shunick was last seen riding her bike. Lavergne has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz told The Associated Press that the arrest came as his department helped Lafayette police search Lavergne’s residence for evidence. Police would not comment on how they connected Lavergne to the Shunick case.
Lavergne appears on the Louisiana Sate Police website as a registered sex offender. The website says Lavergne was convicted in 2000 of aggravated oral sexual battery. He was released from prison in 2008.
Lavargne appeared before a judge early Friday for a preliminary hearing, where it was learned that he will be kept in critical care in order to protect him from other prisoners, and that he will be represented by a public defender, KATC reported.
When asked if is able to afford a lawyer for his defense, Lavargne said, “Not in a case like this, sir.”
A news conference is scheduled for this afternoon.

Police were trying to track down information about a white pickup truck seen on the same video.
Lavergne is listed on the sex offender website as having a white 2011 Chevrolet Silverado.
