LOGAN, Utah – In the wake of the tragic ending to the search for 5-year-old Elizabeth “Lizzy” Shelley, officials are warning the public to be aware that fake donation accounts could pop up.

According to a Facebook post from the Logan City Police Department, the family of Lizzy Shelley has authorized two donation accounts. The first is through Zions Bank, and any branch will accept money donated to the Elizabeth Shelley Donation Account. The second is a GoFundMe* page titled “Lights on 4 Lizzy.”

“Please do not fall prey to fraud schemes or other donation accounts,” according to the LCPD post. “These are the only two that the family has authorized.”


A body believed to be Shelley’s was recovered Wednesday after a days-long search. Her uncle, Alexander Whipple, has been charged with murder.

*KSL TV does not assure that the money deposited to the account will be applied for the benefit of the persons named as beneficiaries. If you are considering a deposit to the account, you should consult your own advisers and otherwise proceed at your own risk.
