(KADN) - Today marks the ninth anniversary of the death of Mickey Shunick. The UL anthropology student disappeared while riding her bike home from downtown Lafayette.

Her remains were found nearly two months later in a shallow grave in rural Evangeline Parish. Brandon Lavergne is serving a life sentence for her murder.

Today on Facebook, Shunick's family posted a rememberance of her noting that she would've celebrated her 31st birthday this Friday.

The family has maintained a facebook page bearing her name that posts missing persons cases and the City of Lafayette dedicated a bike route in Shunick's honor a few years after her death.
