Stacy Toups, the wife of the carjacking victim Scott Toups has died.

Scott Toups was shot and carjacked in Bridge City and left gravely injured.

Stacy stayed by him as he recovered from the serious injuries.

Stacie then appeared in several WWL-TV stories as she served as Scott's advocate and voice.

Scott was released from the ICU just last month.

"She was a great woman. I just wish I could have returned the favor," Toups said Wednesday. "She's a fighter. She never gave up."

Before Stacie's death, she was busy putting together a raffle to help pay for Scott's medical bills.  The raffle will still go on, Scott said.

"She was by my side the whole time. They almost pulled the plug on me and my wife fought against it," he said.

This week, he found his beloved wife, Stacie in their home unresponsive. He said the coroner told him she died of natural causes.
