LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Family members and friends of two people killed in weekend crashes and a woman killed in a fatal hit and run, prepare to say goodbye as funeral arrangements are announced.

Twenty-one-year-old Courtney Guidry was killed when the vehicle she was riding in blew a tire and flipped several times near Sulphur, according to authorities. Her funeral is Wednesday, October 28 at 11 a.m. Visitation begins 2 hours earlier at 9 a.m. at King's Funeral Home in Lake Charles.

On Saturday, Preston Stoutes was killed on McCown Rd. when he lost control of his motorcycle and ran off the road. Visitation is at Hixson Funeral Home Wednesday (today) from 5 to 9 p.m. and on tomorrow (Thursday, October 22) from 8 a.m. until the service begins at 11 a.m.

In a tragedy that's now turned into a criminal case, there are still no arrests in the deadly hit and run in Lake Charles Friday morning. Gayle Musk was struck around 2 a.m. as she walked north of Common St. just north of Gauthier Rd. She would later die at the hospital.

Her visitation starts Wednesday (today) at 8 a.m., and the funeral is at 11 a.m. at Hixson Funeral Home on Ryan St. in Lake Charles.

    In this week's edition of "Christian's Cajun Adventures," KPLC's Christian Piekos spent time on a commercial crabbing vessel. Christian was assisted by Roger Kelly, a veteran crabber.

    Kelly, who also goes by the nickname "Snoopy," has been catching crab since a very young age. It seems like rudimentary work, but Kelly couldn't be happier with his job.
