Lavergne filed a complaint with the 15th Judicial District Attorney’s office moaning and groaning about his living quarters at Angola State Penitently, according to KATC.
Lavergne thinks he is being held in solitary confinement for political reasons and not for his own protection.
Lavergne spends 23 hours a day in a cell he occupies alone.
Lavergne alleges that authorities say he “wasn’t showing enough remorse for Mickey Shunick and needed to sit in a cell for a while so he could think about it”.
Lavergne is serving back to back life sentences after confessing to the murders of both Mickey Shunick and Lisa Pate.
A hunger strike is a method of non-violent resistance or pressure in which participants fast as an act of political protest, or to provoke feelings of guilt in others, usually with the objective to achieve a specific goal, such as a policy change. Most hunger strikers will take liquids but not solid food.
Lavergne’s manipulative behavior is unlikely to do anything other than make his permanent residence at Angola miserable.
