The kidnapping and murder of Mickey Shunick made national headlines, and shook the Lafayette community like no event I've witnessed in 30 plus years of living here. The Lafayette City-Parish council has decided her memory will be preserved in the most fitting manner possible. Mickey loved horses, and riding her bicycle. The Advertiser reports, a proposed 8 mile bike trail will be named the Mickey Shunick Memorial Bike Loop. The loop will fittingly begin and end at the Horse Farm and include the stretch of St. Landry Street from which Mickey was abducted.
