(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.

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.
