UPDATE: Creating a GoFundMe Account for Sulfur Woman’s Funeral Expenses

Posted at 12:11 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2022

A GoFundMe account to cover funeral expenses for Stephany Fong, 32, was organized by Sylvia Avery and Amanda Keller.

“At this time, we would like to ask for help from the community again – not just for Stephany but her family, Dani and Shelby,” they said on the page.

The GoFundMe goal was set at $10,000. After 2 p.m., over $8,000 was raised. The funding will be used for Fong’s funeral expenses. Any excess money will be set aside for her daughter, Dani.

“Stephany was loved by so many. She will be forever missed,” Avery and Keller said. “Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

On Saturday, Fong was reported missing after leaving the Sulfur Wagin Cajun bar at 5 a.m. that morning. After two days of searching, his body was recovered Monday evening from his submerged vehicle in the Bayou of India.

According to Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Sheriff Tony Mancuso, the investigation is being treated as a precautionary homicide, but foul play is not suspected. The coroner’s office is determining the cause of death.
