LEESVILLE, La. - There are new developments this afternoon in the Mickey Shunick case. It turns out the case is now taking a turn from the Lafayette area back here to Cenla. News Channel Five's Nolan Crane picks up the story from Leesville.

That's right, I'm here in Fort Polk where we're learning new developments about Brandon Lavergne, The man charged with the death of missing Lafayette college student Mickey Shunick.
