LAFAYETTE - The body of Mickey Shunick was returned to her family, according to the Lafayette Parish Coroner.

Shunick's family plans to have a private funeral for friends and family and a public memorial to celebrate Mickey's life. The date of the public memorial has not been set.

Shunick was last seen riding her bicycle away from a friend's house May 19, days before she turned 22.

Brandon Lavergne pleaded guilty on Friday to murdering Shunick and Lisa Pate in exchange for a life sentence.

The Lafayette Parish Coroner's Office released Shunick's autopsy results after Lavergne's court appearance. They said she died from a gunshot wound to the head, and several stab wounds were also contributing factors.
