BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Funeral services have been held for Louisiana sports reporter Carley McCord, who died last week in a plane crash in Lafayette.
The 30-year-old was among five who were killed in the crash as they headed to the Peach Bowl to see LSU play the Oklahoma Sooners in Atlanta.
McCord was the daughter-in-law of the LSU offensive coordinator, Steve Ensminger.
McCord’s funeral was held at St. Jean Vianney Church in Baton Rouge. Family asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a memorial scholarship fund set up in McCord’s honor at Northwestern State University.
