Funeral held for Kimberly Ann Stephens

By Brandon Richards

DERIDDER, LA (KPLC) - Funeral services for Kimberly Ann Stephens, 27, were held today in DeRidder. Stephens' body was found in late August on Granberry Road.

The Calcasieu Coroner's Office says Stephens died from a result of blunt force trauma to the head.  Authorities are still following leads, but so far no suspects have been named. Beauregard Parish authorities are waiting for a forensic test to return, which they believe will provide them with more information about who may have killed Stephens.

The homicide investigation has taken its toll on Stephen's family, who are tired of waiting for answers.

They hope someone with information about how Stephens died comes forward.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Beauregard Parish Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-1374, 337-462-8918 or 337-463-3281.

A $2,000 reward is currently being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the crime.
