GONZALES, La. - The disappearance of a University of Louisiana Lafayette student brings back bad memories for a Louisiana woman whose own daughter was killed by a Baton Rouge serial killer.
"This case brings it all back," said Lynne Marino.
Marino's 44-year-old daughter Pam Kinamore's body was discovered nearly 10 years ago under the Whiskey Bay bridge.
It's the same remote, swampy area west of Baton Rouge where two fisherman found the bicycle belonging to the missing student, 22 year old Mickey Shunick.
She was last seen 10 days ago, riding the bike home from a friends house around 2 a.m.
"Whiskey Bay is like taking a scab off of a wound and of course finding out that a 22-year-old girl is missing and they found her bike just, it makes me realize over and over what this family has ahead of them and the pain and the sorrow," said Marino.
Marino's daughter was among the south Louisiana women killed by Derrick Todd Lee who now faces the death penalty.
"Nothing worse could happen to this family," said Marino. "What's so sad is they want to have hope. But the truth is the longer she's missing, the less hope there is."
Marino says had police kept their promise to her a decade ago, investigators in the Shunick case could now have valuable clues.
"When Pam was found there, the Baton Rouge police promised me that they would put a camera at Whiskey Bay. Some fellow called me who did cameras and offered to do it and the task force told me they'd get back with him. They never did. We need to light up that area."
Marino had some advice for the Shunicks.
"I think the family needs to be visible, do interviews, keep their story on the front page because somebody knows something."
She hopes the Shunick's get what her family did not, a happy ending.
"I know my daughter wouldn't want me to live my life like that grieving everyday. But, you know it's hard not to miss somebody, your family member, your child."
Marino says she would like to meet the Shunick family to give them her support.
