On Saturday, February 12, friends held a bake sale and benefit dinner to raise money for Scott’s funeral. They had exited through Fat Cat Saloon on Airline Highway in Prairieville.
Those who knew Scott say she was a great person and are sad that she is gone.
“What happened to Crystal was tragic, and to top it off, what happened after is even…it’s just, it’s hard, I don’t even know how to put it into words. She needs a dignified burial or memorial or whatever, and it needs to be dignified, especially after what happened,” Arlene Morrison said.

“I don’t think my worlds were rocked like that to be honest. Crystal was truly an amazing person, and I thought it was a great way to help with expenses because funerals are so expensive, and it was so unexpected,” Sierra Braud said.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help with funeral expenses. You can donate here.
