LAFAYETTE - Friends and family of Mickey Shunick say they will hold a community celebration to honor the University of Louisiana at Lafayette student who was kidnapped and killed in May.

The Advertiser reports that friends will share memories of the 21-year-old woman, City-Parish President Joey Durel will speak, and family and friends will recognize law enforcement officers, donors, doctors and volunteers who helped search for Shunick.

There will be live music and public bike ride following the route Shunick took early May 19, ending with placement of a "ghost bike" as a tribute to her.

The event on Saturday, Sept. 29, will be free, with food and beer on sale and T-shirts sold for the cost of printing.
