My heart goes out to his mother. I couldn't imagine what it must be like to see your child go through a trial like this and possibly be found guilty with the death penalty. I pray for her and his family.

Before we condemn and lynch this young man, I would like to see more proof of what the cops have on him. They are being very evasive.

Lavergne has not confessed to anything. There is no body. The only thing they have on him is the truck.

Let's learn from our past mistakes: here all the evidence, know for sure it is him, find the body, then let justice and the law do its job.

While viewing this case, I ran across a website with a missing man by the name of Trent Perkins of Dequincy. Can anyone shine light on why no answers or rumors on how this young gentleman disappeared?

There's no evidence that he burned his truck. According to him, his truck was stolen and when they found it, it was burned. It's very likely that the person who stole the truck also burned it. Either this guy is guilty or he has really bad luck. And people don't deserve to get charged with murder just because they drive a truck similar to one that drove in the same area where a girl went missing.

I hardly think he was charged with murder bc he drove a truck similar to the one from the surveillance video. They must of found some hard evidence when they checked out his home in the Swords area. Just saying!

Oh I sure hope so. I would hate to think that him driving a similar truck and being in the whiskey bay area would be enough to charge him. I just kinda feel like Lafayette PD had so much pressure on them to solve this case they they're looking for anyone who looks good for this. And it seems they'll also take everything they know about this man to make him look guilty. They've supposedly found women's IDs in his home. If one belongs to Mickey, then yeah....not so innocent. Also DNA evidence would be great. But so far, the only evidence that has been released to the public has been circumstantial evidence.

I too would hate to see yet another innocent person sentenced to death. The part of the puzzle for me that really stands out is that Brandon was treated for stab wounds on the same exact day Mickey went missing. Didn't he say he was robbed at 3pm and drove around until he found a hospital at 10pm. Somehow that seems really unusual to me.

Well they weren't life threading wounds. And 10pm may have been the time he received treatment but maybe he had gotten to the hospital earlier? I know if I checked into UMC with stab wounds at 3pm I would get treated til out 48 hrs later. Lol

Actually never heard of him before this. All I've heard of is circumstantial evidence and nothing concrete. Do you know for sure what solid evidence the police have?

No, I don't know him. Just taking up for the innocent. And he is innocent until proven guilty. Of course that's not always the case and maybe LPD have solid evidence that proves he is linked to these murders. But until such evidence is released, I can only go on what they've released so far, which is only circumstantial evidence and sort of a witch hunt.

But I know there are quite a few people around here that do know him. And I believe in some of the other threads there are people that knew him.
