OPELOUSAS — A Washington man wanted in the April 17 drug-related death of Lance Gordon surrendered to authorities late Thursday on counts of negligent homicide and obstruction of justice.
Stephan Paul Godeaux, 27, is one of three people accused of misleading both Gordon’s family and authorities about his death, St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Clay Higgins said.
Gordon, 26, died after he was injected with a drug cocktail prepared by 29-year-old Jessica Eve Stelly, Higgins said.
Stelly, 29, was booked Wednesday on counts of second-degree murder and obstruction of justice. Gene Allen Dunbar, 34, was booked April 22 on counts of negligent homicide and obstruction of justice in the case.
Both Stelly’s and Dunbar’s last known addresses were in Church Point.
Stelly is accused of calling Godeaux and Dunbar after Gordon had an adverse reaction to the drugs and died, Higgins said. The trio is accused of transporting Gordon to his home, cleaning him up and propping him up on his sofa, where family discovered him dead a day later.
